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:

Happy Friday everyone!   Was just wondering about what the most popular Tinted Moisturizers, or BB/CC creams are out there? What are some of your favorites for the days you want something easy and quick, and yet, put-together?   My favorite has been the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in St. Moritz. I have normal-dry skin, medium, warm skintone and love the warm tones that this TM has. I feel it has pretty good coverage for a TM and does not dry out my skin. It is quite a thick consistency though, as most of you may already know.   Please share your favorites along with your skintype and tone. Also, what do you esp like about the product?   Have a lovely long weekend everyone!

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?

Black Whiskey hit 20,000 hearts!  Stop in and leave a heart or message for the one who always wows us with her gorgeous and artistic looks!  I know I can always count on her for some makeup inspiration and to push myself to try different applications.    Thanks BW, this heart party is for you (and Luna!)

I've been thinking about starting this thread for a while. Tonight while reading an unrelated thread, the topic of depression and anxiety came up once again. I wanted a safe space for others to talk about what's going on with them, how they're feeling, do they need some help? There seems to be a fair number of us here on BT that struggle with depression, I see it pop up frequently.    I personally suffer from chronic depression and anxiety disorder. I was diagnosed with depression in 2003. After a bajillion tests and convinced I had a brain tumor, I was told it was depression. I burst into tears. That was not the answer I wanted and I still didn't believe the doctor. I also had been suffering from panic attacks since around 1997-98. They were getting worse, and I had absolutely no idea what they were. I just thought I was dying, every single time. I started having them daily. Today I am ok. Through lots of trial and error, medications, therapy and hypnotherapy. And also genetic testing, which I urge anyone suffering from chronic depression to get.    I don't personally feel a stigma anymore. I'm very upfront about my condition as I don't think it's a secret to be locked away. Secrets start to haunt us and close us off from the world. If we talk about it, we normalize it. And we find ways to get better.    So feel free to tell your story here, or just part of it. Or just stop by and say hi, I need some help today. Or hey, I can't even get out of bed to brush my teeth because the world feels too heavy today. We already have a love of beauty which binds us together. Let this just be another way for us to connect and make friends.

Come and let everyone know if you've done a trade with someone or they've been an awesome TSB contributor! Let's give kudos to our BT BFFs!    So a post could be one persons feedback on another, how a trade went, did they ship quickly, etc. and others could reply if they dealt with the same person and how their trade went.

I've been chatting with some fellow coffee addicts over in the Random Thoughts thread but I thought maybe I should make a separate thread.  So let's discuss anything/everything about coffee!   I just got the Peet's Sumatra blend in the k cups and I really like it!  Need to make a note to try their Major Dickinsons Blend since it's so popular.

A while ago I started a conversation asking if people thought that tattoos were beautiful, mainly because I had recently set up a date for my first one. People has asked me to post a picture when it was completed. SO....   HERE IT IS  Anyone else recently get new ink? I WANNA SEE.

So I had some makeup (and tea) boxes laying around and wanted to use them but without all the pictures all over them, so naturally GLITTER! Coated them in Modge Podge and Glitter and now I can use them for all sorts of things and they look pretty!!   I also like to take old compacts, clean them out, then pour old nail polish (applies streaky, clumps, etc) into it so it dries nice and flat, to make play pretend makeup for kids. But I have no pictures of any of those right now.   As I was doing this I realized there is no way that I am the only one to re-use, re-purpose, and craft old makeup boxes, compacts, perfume bottles etc....So I wanted to start a thread where we could all share our beauty crafting ideas!! So please ladies, show me your crafts!

in the past day, I've received emails for some pretty good sweepstakes and thought of starting this thread. So here is a place we can share these types of promotional sweepstakes, prizes and giveaways with each other and hopefully, one of us will win now and again!   so share BT-approved modified links, sweepstakes info and any results here. Fingers crossed one of us wins some great prizes!
Please tell me I'm not alone....I was grabbing my brush case, and I didn't realize the case wasn't buttoned closed (top half comes off (think Sigma case)). Right before my eyes, I saw 22 of my brushes fall to the dirty kitchen floor!!!!! What are your makeup-related tragedies?? I might not read them right away....I need time to mourn       Edit: I did wash my brushes shortly thereafter. I think they're stunned by the trauma.
So, recently I've made he decision to go cruelty free. I had made another thread asking about alternatives. However,  I was also  wondering for those of you who are already buying cruelty free; do you still buy from companies like Urban Decay and Tarte - who don't test on animals themselves, but their parent company does? I know that UD is owned by Estee Lauder and Tarte by Kose (At least from what I've read) who is definitely not cruelty free. Is that a deal breaker for you or do you still buy from these companies? I just would like to know how people feel about that and kind of get more insight on things. 
Does anybody know if there are any Kate Spade Printable Coupons?  And I already know about the signing up via email and receiving 15% off.   But I am talking about any other ones that people are aware of.
Hi guys, I'm in Sydney for th next few days and I'm looking for suggestions on gifts to bring back home? Any ideas?
I will be going into Calgary next weekend (long weekend for Canadians) and it is my first time ever so I have never been before.   I was just wondering if shopping there at Sephora and clothing stores is it cheaper there? Or is it more expensive?  I live in Manitoba so taxes here are different than Alberta of 5%. Manitoba is 5% GST and 8% PST.   Like I know they have a Sephora there along with Kate Spade which I also love...just wondering if it's more expensive there to shop?   Anyone have an idea or is from Calgary and can provide me with some insight?   I would really appreciate it.
To all my fellow teachers:  enjoy your day!  My school treated us to a nice lunch and some Fisher's popcorn! Yum!

Hey guys so i notice the old thread was kinda dead so i thought would start a fresh one     Se feel free to share what you are reading,  what you have read,  what you plan to read, recommendations and your  " to read'  choices!!!  I'll start!!     Recently finished reading "Sins of the House of Borgia" by Sarah Bower and it was AMAZING!!! I definitely recommend it  it has to do with the family but about on of the lady's living in their castle helping Lucretia.  its a fictional twist on the history which i love!  im stuck in that era right now and love the borgia family    i have a few others on my currenty reading list that involve members of the borgia family as well as during that period in time   and I'm hoping to get a kindle from my bf for christmas.  if not  gonna see if theres a good boxing day deal on it     oh and heres my current need to read pile   if anyone wants to know whats in it let me know    
With Mother's Day around the corner, wouldn't it be nice to pamper her with something special?  What would your mom want for Mother's Day to make her feel more beautiful?  My mom is not into makeup so I'm thinking I may take her to the salon for a new hairstyle.

I'd love to see photos from people's holiday vacations or trips home. I was just chatting offline with Guze and asking about hers. I'll comment and bump up the thread periodically as I'm posting it a little before most people will be traveling. And I'm not going anywhere but did make the short trip to Malibu the other day.  From the drive...SOCA in December. So where have you been?  What great photos did you take?
So I wanted to keep this on the down-low, I know I've only told one person, and thank you for keeping it a secret too. I didn't really want to post anything but I know you guys have been with me through thick and thin, you guys showed amazing support when I was going through Neko's death, and many other situations I've been in. Tomorrow my mom is being admitted into surgery, it's been 10 years or so since she got her pacemaker and lately she had been going to a lot of doctor's appointments but they always said she was fine, last week they told her she needed to go immediately to have I suppose a battery replacement? because it was hiccuping or something of the  sort. When my mom started voicing to me that she wasn't feeling well, that she felt her heart was going to stop, that was last year when I was still working. Aside from my depression that was one major reason why I decided to quit my job, I couldn't handle not being there for her, and I couldn't if I worked because I'd get home and just sleep and wake up at 5 am.  I know i've expressed many problems happening with my mom and how we clash A LOT, but in the end she is still my mom and I love her so so much and it scares me that she's going in tomorrow, it scares me so much. I've been reassured by my friends who used to live near me and one that still does that she'll be okay but I still have that worry. I'm trying not to make it so much that I start thinking so negative, but yeah. It's tomorrow and it hit me hard. I placed an order for Dior Dolce Vita perfume I believe, for her, that should be arriving tomorrow, but I want to save that for mother's day. I'm thinking flowers, but that seems cliche too? I don't know? Maybe a poem. I've been trying to get back to everyone's comments but sometimes unexpected events happen around my home where I can't and then I forget, but thanks for the recent comments, especially the rainbow cheek ones! 
mine always look terrible! I want to show to show off my makeup but I can never get good angles or lighting!
I don't need to explain anything, just let it be known, today I needed to vent to people who wouldn't judge me and ask me questions. I got this. But tonight I just really want to vent. Thank you all. I'm OK. But life is hard sometimes...

We BTers are a busy bunch, and I don't know about anyone else, but I always appreciate a local's perspective on things to do, see and eat wherever I'm headed.    Just booked a last minute long weekend (Thursday to Sunday) to Portland, Oregon. We'll have a car, so we were thinking about exploring beyond the Portland city limits... maybe do some breweries or wineries. Anybody with Portland (and surrounding area) recommendations? Specifically looking for where to stay in Portland (walkable, local favorites) and we love food, so any recommendations of places to eat would be most welcome! 
Aka how do I buy a couch for cheap?    I just moved across country... I have no couch, no dishes, no lamps...  I'm pretty much a transient!  LOL.    I'm wondering if anyone has tips on how to get a good deal on a couch.  I read a bunch of things online, someone said to try to negotiate with the sales people.  There's a couch I've been eyeing at Crate and Barrel, but I CANNOT live with the standard issue fabrics.  I'm going to *have* to get it with some custom upholstery which would bump the cost of the couch up by $600.    I also don't have a TV and $600 could buy me a TV!  So it seems kind of wasteful to me to spend then extra $600 on a fabric upgrade, but I'm a visually-driven person.  My maslow hierarchy of needs is inverted.    So, here's some suggestions I've found: Ask if that's their best price. Check out outlet stores, like the Crate and Barrel Outlet Check out Rowe Furniture who makes Crate Barrel furniture Try to buy a floor sample Does anyone else have any tips?  I can live with the standard issue upholstery if it was like $800, but the couch I've been looking at starts at $1700 and then the fabric I glanced at would make it cost $2300.  I think I'd rather spend the extra $600 and feel like my living room is beautiful than save that money and feel like my living room is blah.  Although a 60" flat screen would make my living room a lot more beautiful...  I also want a credenza and custom upholstered accent chair.  ...And my budget is about 3k.    Do not mention Ikea furniture.  I can't!  It's just not hitting those aesthetic needs for me.  I mean, don't get me wrong, everything in my apt is already ikea, but I cannot do an Ikea couch.   Please let me know if anyone got a great deal on furniture and how you managed to do it!  I've checked craigslist, too, but there's not a lot of selection on there.  I'd like to hear about anyone's couch buying experience so long as it doesn't involve Neiman Marcus or Bloomingdale's or something else that's way over my budget! 
I was thinking it would be a nice idea to have an "all things Ulta" thread where we can post deals, GWP's, new products, etc!  It would be easier to find things all in one place, as I know I can't be the only one who stalks the beauty breaks and extra point promos!
I was doing a little spring cleaning and came across two beauty books that I forgot I even had.  Now that I have found a love for high quality makeup and skincare, I appreciate my books dearly.  The ones I have are Bobbi Brown, Living Beauty & Kate Somerville Complexion Perfection!  I especially like Kate's book.  Any other recommendations?
Hello beauty babes!   So as this lovely spring day is coming to a close, I would like to know which you all prefer, Bath and Body Works or The Body Shop?! My friend is obsessed with both stores and is a uncertified hoarder of both (along with philosophy) haha She works for Bath and Body Works but loves both stores for various reasons and doesnt seem to have a preference for one over the other. I myself LOVE philosophy. But I've found myself just starting to get into the whole "body lotion, body butter, spritzer" bit. So I would like to see which stores or brands you guys like better for a full body pampering kit and why?!
What is your favorite EOS lip balm? mine is the Summer Fruit, I wanna get some feedback on them so i know which one i should pershes next!<3
So today, after thinking about it for months I made another Instagram account. One specifically for makeup (looks/product reviews etc). I was curious as to how many other BTers have makeup driven social media platforms & if they're going well. After the Instagram bit I may even "up grade" to making YouTube videos I feel like I'm more than capable I just don't know if people would watch them..  So to you BTers out there with successful Instagram & YouTube accounts - any advice for a rookie?  IG account --> @makeup.vixen
