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:

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?

spill your travel tales!!!-
This morning, I was thinking about my hopes to make it to Ireland this year for a vacation and decided to start this thread for a few reasons.   1) I'm hoping that putting this into words will aid me on my no/low-buy journey so that I can successfully start saving for my trip (and not ordering online from Sephora so much),   2) I always ask my friends what the highlight and the lowlight of their vacations were, to glean tips and information for my upcoming travels, wherever it may be.   So tell me, what was one highlight and one lowlight of your vacation trip?   This is a picture of the coast of Caithness, Scotland, which is my absolute favorite country.   Highlight of my trip in 2009: The coast, the mountains and the weather. Altogether made for a very spiritual experience.   Lowlight: The weather. Cool and damp makes for a cold girl.

The RBF/BRF TSB: Holiday Edition
    **This is by invite only; all participants are already identified**   Hey ladies!!!! It's that time of year again! Now that we've all used our Friends and Family codes and Rouge discounts, let's pass along some of our unused stuff. Last years Invite Only TSB ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /By-Invite-Fall-Winter-TSB/m-p/2182116/highlight/t ... ) went so well I decided it was a good idea to do it all over again!      Like the Queens above, I have the rep around BT lately of having RBF/BRF! I'm turning my perceived indifference and attitude into kindness. One new caveat to this TSB: I am not keeping ANYTHING at the end of this; all the proceeds after the last trade go directly to charity.   Many of you know I work with Believe in Tomorrow, a charity servicing families at Johns Hopkins whose children are receiving treatment. The Invite Only TSB last year did SO WELL that they are still stacked with stuff! This year the left over abundance will go to The Katherine Hanley Center, a charity @SuzeAlex works with. Their mission is to provide temporary housing to homeless families in the Fairfax Co, VA area. They receive services that help them formulate a plan to locate permanent house as quickly as possible. The shelter is an integral part to the county's 10 year plan to end homelessness.     TSB Best Practices:  Spoiler (Highlight to read) http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight ... http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight /true#M59515 This TSB Rules:  Spoiler (Highlight to read) - This is a Mid Range to Luxe, New/ Gently Used TSB - Includes everything from Benefit to Tom Ford and above.  - TSB includes Skincare, Makeup, Tools, Perfume - We are trading like for like WITH THE EXCEPTION of members who are shippers Internationally.

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.

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!

Goodbye My December Play! Box 😡
I can't believed this happened so I just have to share...   spoiler... Not a happy ending   Ok, here it goes. I am play box subscriber and have been ever since it was opened to NY. I got an email on 12/4 saying that my payment was declined and telling me that I need to update my new payment info by 12/7 in order to received my December box. I realized that the payment method was an old card so I went ahead and updated it the next day (12/5) and placed an order while I was at it. No problem. Received that order on 12/7, again no problem.    On 12/8 I received another email stating it was final notice and that my payment method was declined again. I called the number on the email right away, told them I updated my payment method and asked why I'm getting this email about the decline of payment. She said she tried to charge my card again and it stated error.  I asked her if she's using the new card info I updated and she said yes and told me there's nothing she can do and that I should contact my financial institute. I told her it's impossible and asked her to confirm the last 4 digits of the card used. She told me no, and told me again I should contact my financial institute and there's nothing she can do. I then asked to speak with her supervisor.     When the supervisor got on the phone, the first thing she did was apologizing that person I was on the call earlier was a trainee and she will be helping me. I gave her the whole 9 yards and she said that she understands and she again she's not able to process my credit card and I should contact my financial institute. I told her I made an order the same day and I even received my package so there's definitely nothing wrong with my card and so she verified my latest transaction. She said she checked the payment method and even its the same as the payment method on file but she's still getting error when processing my credit card and she told me I should contact my financial institute and there's nothing she can do. With all the holding time the call took almost an hour....    The following morning, I contacted my bank and asked why they declined the charge. My bank said there's no record of such initiation in the amount nor the vendor I mentioned. I spent another hour on the phone and all they could tell me is that I updated the main and not the play section of the payment method and that's why the payment didn't go through. So all the change initiation went to my old card and that's why it's not going through. And at this point there's nothing that can be done to add me back to the list for the December box. NOTHING!!! That process took another hour...   I can not explain my fraustration, and it does not help when the Sephora rep just kept emphasizing to me that it's ok because I was not charged for it... No miss, it's NOT ok. I want my December box!!   So ladies and gents make sure you update the play! section of payment method if this ever happened to you because you might not understand why until you spend hours on the call and at that time it's too late for you to get that month's box....   sincerely,  an extremely upset Sephora customer

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.

Video Games! Anything you're currently playing?
I'm an avid lover of video games as well as being an avid lover of make up! I'm sure there are more of us out there! What are you currently playing? Currently I'm pretty obsessed with Overwatch. I played a lot of League of Legends before that, and World of Warcraft before that. I got sucked into playing ranked mode with friends and now...well For other not multi-player games, I have a pretty bad backlog...I really really want to play the new Pokemon game (Pokemon Sun for that Vulpix please) since I've played every version before the newest one. Also need to play Final Fantasy XV. It just came out and it having great reviews which surprised me since I was pretty not into XII or XIII. I hope it is as good as X and the previous ones (X being my favorite!). I'm also waiting excitedly until April/May 2017 for Persona 5. It is one of my favorite series and I even got my boyfriend hooked on the series! I probably should finish the DLC for Dragon Age Inquisition too, but it's been so long and I had to replace my video card since it couldn't even run it that I forgot what happened lol

2017 New Years Resolutions
Hello!  Its about that time of year, when people start to think about their New Years Resolutions. So, for you, what are your resolutions beauty and non-beauty related? Beauty for me- Figuring out a good skin care routine for me, which I'm working on now. Learning, or faking with stencils a wing/cat eyeliner like so:     Non Beauty-Visit many National Parks here in the U.S. and get stamps for my Parks Passport, advance in my photography, and get a little hobby/business started. Which ties into my photography.    How about you?

Too Faced Website Shipping by Christmas?! Womp Womp...
I waited in a 90k online queue on toofaced.com's website for 2 hours at 2am to get the peach palette and special makeup bag on 12/14. It was suppose to be here by Christmas, but hasn't even shipped yet! No response from FB messenger or email and the phone number to customer service won't connect or is always busy. Anyone else?! I'm so frustrated! 😡

EBATES TRACKING
  Updated Dec 28   HELLO CANADIANS!   I'm crazy about tracking things.. and I love ebates.. so what better way to merge those two loves than the track ebate rebate percentages.   What will you do with this information? Well, I can't promise it'll change your life, but it is nice to know the 'trend' if the amounts are on the up-swing or down-swing.   **EBATES.CA PERCENTAGES ONLY**   If you are not using ebates, don't be shy about asking me for a referral link. I would surely appreciate the referral bonus!   Anyone that uses me as a referral can decide an additional store they would like me to add to the tracking.   Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Formula X Sale
I was just wondering what's going on with Formula X, almost all of their products are on sale. Is Sephora discontinuing their partnership or are they making way for all new products and nail polish colours? New packaging? I'm super curious so it's going to bug me till I find out

To Rouge or not to Rouge
I am about $270 from re-qualifying for rouge. I will have to miss 20% sale because of family reason. So now I am confused to what else to purchase, if any, to become rouge.    Is it worth it for you? What is something that you really enjoyed? I live in Canada so we don't have flash.   Thanks!

Should you get a cartilage piercing in both ears or just one?
I have two lobe piercings in both ears (for a total of 4). I want to get my cartilage (called a helix piercing) pierced and I see a lot of people only do one ear.  Is it not stylish if you do it one in both ears? Would it look weird if both ears had the same number and positioning of piercings? Should I just get one side? I like symmetry but I also don't want my ears/face to look stupid.

I always say go for one first, wait a while, then go back for a second if you want more. It doesn't look "off" if it's asymmetrical. I tend to see most people with odd s... see post

Canker Sores - Natures Lip Plumper
A couple of weeks ago I posted a question about The Canker Spanker and if anyone had tried it for oral canker sores. A couple of people suggested other remedies, but I ordered it anyway. Wow - if you suffer (if you get cankers, you know) do yourself a favor and order it. Worked SO fast I was thanking the Lord.   While cankers give your lips a swollen look... buy a lip plumper instead!
