What's on your plate?
Hello there, ladies and gents!   Keeping in line with all the fun and interactive threads asking about your most recent halls, items you have your eyes on, what you're currently wearing, what's your hair routine, and more, I've decide to branch out and ask:   "What's on your plate?"   The beauty world doesn't just stop at skin care and cosmetics, it also goes hand in hand with your overall health and well-being, so with that, I'm curious to see what we're all chowing down and snacking on be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or inbetween!   For those with apps that help count calories or to those who just want to keep a log, here's a place to share, possibly find and share some recipes, and even tips on maintaining a balanced diet.   Don't just share food items, but even drinks! I'm a huge fan of tea and at least have a cup of green tea a day (anti-oxidants) and drink plenty of water.   For lunch today, I had:   -Brown rice -Steamed egg -Steamed red snapper with green onion, sesame oil, and black pepper -Gai lan (it's a type of Chinese vegetable/greens)   Now, tell me, Beauty Talk world, what do you have?

Too Faced - a long time waiting
Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, it's my first time on the community section of Sephora.   I placed an order with Too Faced because they had free international shipping. I mean, who wouldn't take advantage of that if you live outside of the US? Duty taxes get me and up my order to way more than it was. I picked up some minis on March 11 and checked out on the store.   Got refunded a week later, and I've just received an email from Borderfree on Thursday saying my order was shipped. They charged me the money on my bank account again and took over ten days to reply to me. Now I know to order from Sephora.

What are you listening to?
Makeup is my second love, but music has always been my first! Despite not being musically inclined at all, I am obsessed! I don't go a day, or usually a few hours, without listening to music. I love the fact that a song can trigger so many emotions, memories, and completely change your mood.  I am on a never ending search for new artists, so tell me: What are you listening to right now? Do you have a favorite record/band/song?

List of Successful Traders! January 2015
Hey everyone, I updated the list of successful traders. Please post here if you have a successful trade with someone. I will also check with the other Topic and keep this list updated weekly!   Once a person has 5 successful trades I will bold their name, and no longer keep track of successful trades.   I am checking dates of last activity on BT - if a trader has not been active in over 1 year I will remove them from the list, if they become active again I will re-start their successful trades at 1   If you have a bad trade with someone, or you know someone who pulled shenanigans in a TSB - LET ME KNOW! I will keep a document that lists these people. Please PM this information! If you are starting a TSB or are unsure of a trade feel free to ask me for the list of Unsuccessful traders and I will send it to you     Link to the other discussion:

Favorite ways to stay in shape
Hello all! With summer just around the corner, and temperature slowly picking up, it seems as though everyone is hopping on a health kick. Rather it’s training for a marathon or going on a week-long cleanse, a lot of my friends and co-workers at Sephora HQ are creating their own physical mantras. I try my best to stay fit year round, but I’ll admit to struggling around the holidays. I am a sucker for tasty baked goods and seasonal favorites. I usually aim to workout 5 days a week, but in reality it’s usually 3-4 times. I find gyms to be extremely boring; perhaps because I have the attention span of a goldfish? I prefer staying fit either outside or doing an activity that is physically challenging, yet still fun. I do like the occassional fitness DVD, which are my saviors on days that I'm tired or end up working out kinda late in the evening. I recently completely Insanity, I was doing it daily but had to cut back to just a few days a week because I was getting too muscular. I'm interested in giving P90x a shot though.   I typically go to the gym in my apartment complex a few times a week just for the weights and treadmill. On nice days I like to go for long walks, which is especially helpful if I have a lot of local errands to run. I also aim to take a ballet pointe class or yoga once a week. I really wanna try taking an aerial silk class and a barre class.   In terms of cleansing, I actually did my very first one a few weeks ago. I purchased it from GNC and certainly felt the benefits; however I grew tired of having to take all of the vitamins it came with on a daily basis. I am thinking about doing another cleanse in the next month or so. I have heard good things about the Dr. Oz 2 day cleanse.   What do you guys like to do to stay fit? What are you interested in trying?

Why Is ULTA Not In Canada ?
Hey girls,   So ever since I visited my guy in Ohio I have had a new found love for ULTA. The store is like Sephora of drugstore brands and some higher end brands you can't necessarily get at Sephora. I asked the girl at the cashier desk about why they don't ship to Canada or have stores in Canada. She was baffled to hear about this and asked the store manager. She too couldn't believe that we don't have the ability to shop in store or online from up here. I've tried contacting them and they keep saying they don't ship to Canada but never give me a response I deem satisfying to me. I wish they would give us the ability to shop without having to drive to Buffalo to go there. Cities like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver ect would benefit from a franchise opening up.

Our Lips are Sealed: The Lipstick NO BUY
2016 let me realize how many lipsticks I have, how many point perks of lippies I have and I realize... ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. This is a tough challenge, but who wants to go on a lipstick no buy? I'll probably open up a thread for other products as well.  Let's encourage each other to spend practically and this is a small step in one direction. Maybe instead of that lipstick, you save that money and keep saving and then go on a seaside cottage retreat? (pulling strings here!)   1. Items in this category include lipsticks, glosses and lip liners. I was going to consider lip balms, but I will categorize that as skin care. Scrubs are ok. Tinted lip balms are fine and are considered to be the BB/CC/DD/EE/FF/ZZ creams of lip products.  2. You are limited to ONE PURCHASE. This is in place for that special LE.  3. You can drop out once you have all the lipsticks for the year gone. Well you probably need to grab one lipstick right? (and hopefully you stick with that one for the rest of the year)  4. TSBs do not count into the purchase category if you didn't buy anything for that lipstick you are trading for.  5. Exchanges because the beauty product caused an allergic reaction and having to purchase a new item doesn't count. Safety first! 6. Using Ulta Points, Nordstrom Notes, etc. is ok as long as the amount matches the lipstick. I would prefer there be no use of those as the Ulta Points can be used on Skincare and Nordstrom Notes as clothes. YOU CANNOT spend just for the sake of using this rule.  7. Sephora BI Point Perks are exempt, again with the rule above, YOU CANNOT SPEND JUST FOR THE SAKE OF USING THIS RULE. 8. Samples that are from GWPs, foil samples are fine. 9. I really hope this won't come up, but you shouldn't try to ask a lipstick as a gift!   10. Subscription boxes that contain lip products do not count into spend as I believe the items are at random.  11. Sephora Favorites sets cannot have a majority lipstick pack. Must be 1%   Ready set.

Well.. I'm back, I think.
Since January, everything has been a very heavy burden, my grandma's health declined so I was not at liberty to go out to even go grocery shop because I was the one that had to help my grandma stand up, I didn't mind. Unfortunately, she passed away this February 15 at 8:43 PM in her home, surrounded by loved ones. Needless to say that everyone in our family feels a gap in their heart, but being how I was the one that lived with her since I was a baby, I grew up with her, I took care of her.. I feel like I lost my second mother and grandmother. At times before her death I was at peace, other times too depressed to even get up.  I almost didn't go to her funeral, I feared I could not take it, I almost couldn't, but I stayed strong enough to be able to go through it.  We buried her in Mexico, where she was born, where she grew, where she lived, her beautiful home town, where she helped the less fortunate, where she helped anybody, everybody.. everyone loved her. You should've seen the street the other day, we showed her pictures, recorded videos, and audio of her voice.. not only did we cry, but we laughed as well-the street was packed. Almost our entire family went down there which is around 65+.  Yesterday we finally put her in her last residing resting place, with my grandfather and her brother. My beloved grandmother, I will always have her in my heart, I will always feel her presence, and that wisdom and patience she had I will try to imitate. For she was truly one of a kind, a beautiful soul that put everyone before her, without as much as a single negative word, nor negative phrase - you'd never hear her say anything that wasn't positive.  I am sorry to have to be writing this here but unfortunately, even though I lived with her all my life and would've loved to say something at her funeral, my cousin from Dallas (she's a nice lady) took over the funeral program and it was mainly people from Dallas that were included and my cousin and I (my cousin who also grew up close with me) were excluded. I regret that, that is what I regret, I felt left out in a day where we celebrated my grandmother and her life.

#Lust 004 and Patmgrath.com
I'm rather upset. I had been planning to purchase #Lust004 kit today on patmcgrath.com as I missed the very flash release on Sephora recently, and Pat Mcgrath's site kept being unable to recognize my billing details and putting multiple errors on my card.   What was worse was that it actually messed up my bank card so much that I had to spend 4 hours on the phone to the bank fraud team, as the site somehow created multiple blocks that have, for some reason, kept flagging up as malicious activity to my card to the fraud team even up until an hour ago. That's nearly 8 hours since I tried to make the purchase.   After my card was unblocked, the site itself wouldn't recognise the post code. There seemed to be something wrong with its recogising of shipping addresses. The card was fine, in terms of being recognised, after i spoke with the bank. But the site wouldn't let addresses be inputted properly and there seemed no customer support. I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this with this site. That's why I went through the card thing with my bark, but after the site recognised the card, it wouldn't recognise the street address. So I'm inquiring as to whether anyone had had a similar experience with customer support / address imputing from this site   What made it worse was that I emailed Pat Mcgrath's customer service immediately, however I had no responses. I've also tried to flag it up to pat on twitter, in case there was a site issue, but the tweets have just been ignored.   It's an account I regularly use online and have had for years, and neither I (nor the bank!) have ever seen or experienced anything quite like this before. I ultimately don't have lust, as by the time I had gotten it sorted out for the literally at least twenty fifth time with the bank, it was sold out already!   It is really worrying for me with my card too, especially that both the twitter and customer service have thus far been unresponsive. This was especially worrying when the company cannot have not known that there would be a flood of customers during that time window. Indeed they had created and encouraged it more months!     The *really* ridiculous and upsetting thing is that the site kept sending automatic emails to my inbox saying that I had items in my cart, and enticing that I should carry on and complete my purchase (which I attempted multiple times, unsuccessfully).   Have any of you ever experienced anything like this?   Ultimately, I didn't manage to get Lust, and now I have the worry of my bank account. I don't know what I will do if any long standing issues occur to my account, as patmcgrath's side seem rather hard to contact.

Can we talk wigs? to
I have wanted to dye my hair purple since I was in middle school (started 6th grade in 2005) first I wanted a plum purple but for the last 6 or so years I have wanted lilac. And now I am also wanting to go for a dark sapphire blue. The thing is I am too much of a scaredy cat, I have never done anything to my hair. I love my natural colors, and I really need to work on nursing it back to health from too much hot tools.   I have been thinking about getting a wig or two and dying it/them. Where should I start? I do most of my shopping online, so if I could get a wig online, that would be ideal. I know I need human hair to be able to dye it (plus that looks better) and I would really like one relatively close to my length. I have pretty long hair, it goes down to my belly button.

HOw to "shower" at work without a shower... Ideas?
So I just learned that as a benefit at work we can take 3 hours a week to workout. I'd like to come in early and run - because I run best in the morning and usually can't fit it into my schedule. My work day starts at 0600 and I leave for work at 0530. If I run I have to be ready to work at 0700. I'm thinking since I can skip getting ready at home I can actually arrive a bit before 0600 and get a little more time for my workout.   Anyhow - my question is - there are no locker room facilities available to me. I can wash my hair really quick in the bathroom sink and put it up wet. Beyond that - suggestions for how to clean up and not be too gross for the day, or use dry shampoo. The bathrooms are single use and private - so I can strip down or whatever without anyone walking in on me.   What quick get-ready tips do you have? How do you deal with your hair and working out?   Many thanks!

I thought I'd make a thread on my experience for anyone that was interested in knowing how it goes!   I only deal with 'straight trade', no cash changes hands.    2017.02.26 - The Eros Code for Literacy Spoiler (Highlight to read) 2 Armani - Armani Code 2 Versaces - Eros All traded for: 1 Sungale E-Reader 2 Armani - Armani Code2 Versaces - ErosAll traded for:1 Sungale E-Reader 2017.02.19 - Smelling 4x more beautiful Spoiler (Highlight to read) 5 Giorgio Armani - Si 1 Giorgio Armani - Aqua Di Gio 8 Gucci - Bamboo 2 Gucci - Guilty All traded for: 4 Porcelain Statues   5 Giorgio Armani - Si1 Giorgio Armani - Aqua Di Gio8 Gucci - Bamboo2 Gucci - GuiltyAll traded for:4 Porcelain Statues  2017.02.13 - A muse to the olfactory Spoiler (Highlight to read) 2 Giorgio Armani - Acqua Di Gio Perfumo 2 Victor & Rolf - SpiceBomb 2 Victor & Rolf - Bon Bon 2 Ralph Lauren - Polo Blue 1 Poco Rabanne - 1 Million 1 Lancome - La Vie Est Belle 1 Giorgio Armani - Armani Code All traded for: 4 8x10 Canvas 1 12x16 Canvas 1 8x16 Canvas 3 16x20 Canvas 2 Giorgio Armani - Acqua Di Gio Perfumo2 Victor & Rolf - SpiceBomb2 Victor & Rolf - Bon Bon2 Ralph Lauren - Polo Blue1 Poco Rabanne - 1 Million1 Lancome - La Vie Est Belle1 Giorgio Armani - Armani CodeAll traded for:4 8x10 Canvas1 12x16 Canvas1 8x16 Canvas3 16x20 Canvas 2017.02.05 - Fragrance lit up my life..

ctIs there any way to find out how many better than sex mascara's sephora has sold?
I'm doing a research project about whether high end makeup products or low end makeup products get higher reviews and whether or not that has an impact on the number of products sold. I would be SUPER grateful if anyone could help me!!!!!!

What is the best skincare routine/cover up makeup for overplucked areas?
What is the best skincare routine/cover up makeup for overplucked areas? Such as on the face such as lip and chin? People always comment about what looks like bruising on my face but its actually just between-stages hair growth or irritated redness from overplucking or waxing.  Foundation or concealer just make the area more noticeable and does not promote healing. Since I pluck those areas on a regular basis, they really don't get much of a chance to heal.

The Walking Dead - Theories, Questions, & General Excitement!
OFF-TOPIC thread devoted to just The Walking Dead-- Anyone who loves the show is welcome to geek out about it here!! Let's talk about past OR present story lines, theorize, ask questions about things we might not have understood, grieve for lost characters, explain what makes us fans, show off TWD-related merchandise, etc.  Oh and memes of course!  We should probably try to use the SPOILER TAGS in here when talking about story lines so we don't accidentally ruin anyone else's "viewing experience"! (FYI the spoiler button is at the top of your post box, the circular symbol right after  ABC)   First, I just want to say how I came to I love this show. I am not generally a fan of zombie stuff (well, I liked the original Dawn of the Dead, but I think that's because I got to fantasize about living in a mall!)   It was season 2 or 3 when I accidentally got hooked. Some friends of mine without cable asked me to DVR the show for them, so I did for a few weeks. I'd planned to just busy myself otherwise when they came over to watch, but I wound up having a nasty flu the night they finally showed up and I was glued to my recliner. I thought I'd just close my eyes and sleep, but I was sucked in from the start, and since I'd missed a season or two, I kept pausing it to ask my friends questions "Why is he.." "How did that...?"    Then I went back and watched all the previous stuff to be caught up, so I kinda watched it Pulp Fiction-style.   The story lines are so complex and intriguing that you don't even notice the gore after a (very short) while. It's more suspenseful than scary, and also sad, and funny, and more than anything: heartwarming (yes, really). It's really all about survival and how people fight to live (and save their loved ones) even when there's really not much to live for. (I suffer with severe depression and other issues, so that is the part that kinda inspires me most of all.)    Doesn't hurt that Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus are so hot, either.       SO ANYHOOZ....    Regarding the most recent episode from 2.16.14: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Anyone else think Lizzie is one evil little kid? My gawd, I seriously thought she was going to suffocate baby Judith the other night. And after seeing her cut up the rabbits, I'm pretty sure now she was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison, and doing other weird stuff with them.

SO EXCITING!!! And who are those new bad-azz looking people!? SO EXCITING!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh glad I got all that out.     What say other fans? Why do you love this show? What do you think is going on/will happen?

Pokemon Go!
This is a thread for the new app/game Pokemon Go. Please feel free to share anything and everything about it. Who is your starter? What team do you represent? Any funny stories or places you've caught Pokemon?         I started with Squirtle, growing up playing all the Pokemon games I almost always chose the water Pokemon. And Wartortle is one of my top favorites. I just started playing and haven't left my house yet, but I've found a Meowth on my bed. I'm only level two, but when the time comes I will be representing Team Mystic, Articuno is my all time favorite legendary.

Why I have been hiding ~ Why you haven't seen me on BT...
  First off I want to say that BT is one of the highlights of my day and I truly enjoy these forums. It is one of the first things I do when i turn on my computer in the morning and the last thing I do before going to bed. It would be safe to say that BT is an incredibly impt part of my life.   This is why I think it is impt that I share the following with all of my BT friends:   Last Wednesday night, Oct 5, 2016, I woke up in the trauma ward of my local hospital. Earlier that day I had been involved in serious motor vehicle accident where my car was totaled and I had sustained multiple serious injuries. Over the course of the following 48 hours in the hospital, I subsequently had two major surgeries and a myriad of tests.  It was quite something to experience,   I do not want to bore you with my troubles and i am not coming here begging for sympathy. My main reason for posting this info is to simply let my friends I have made on BT know what happened, especially if I am not as vocal in the coming months.   For those who are wondering, I am now in a medical rehabilitation center, having been discharged from the hospital four days ago. I am completely (temporarily) disabled on my entire left side from the chest down. (thank goodness I am a righty.) From here on I will focus on daily three hour sessions in both physical & occupational therapy focused on getting me back to be the normal and fully functioning 36 year old woman that I was up until a week ago. They say I will be here for many weeks/months.   I do still plan to “lurk” on the BT boards but right now between the recent trauma. feeling quite down, and honestly just losing the will to shop, (I know, shriek!)  I don’t think I would be as valuable a contributor.   Sending my love to all my BT friends… I’ll be thinking about ya!

Disposable Color Contacts For Astigmatism
Are there any brands that make a light blue/green, aqua/turquoise, mint green color for naturally hazel eyes? I do not need vision correction. If not disposable, how much and how long do they last? (Not sure about commiting to a color without wearing first.)

Nope. Trust me I've looked.  You can't even get non disapoable colors for astigmatism. see post

I searched the threads and didnt see anywhere to post this really but I had to share
I see alot of you that use ebates but there are others, topcashback and mrrebates that will earn you more. For example, Ulta at mrrebates is 6% ebates is only at 3%. Topcashback has games throughout the year that will earn you cash back and put you in for a drawing for more cashback as a grand prize. Topcashback also has it where you don't have to wait quarterly for your money, you can cash in any time to your bank account or giftcards. Sorry for such a long read but I had to share with my fellow beauty addicts!
