So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON Tarte now ships to Canada!
I was just watching a review done by RAEeivew I didn't watcher her videos from the beginning.. so I might be missing something but she literally buys everything high end and in multiples too. as in 6 different Giorgio Armani foundations in her own skin color (I got the feeling that she's buying stuff for her own use) Does she just have a job that pays like a celebrity or is she inherently rich like her dad owns Samsung does anyone know?
After a winter polar vortex comes a spring pollen vortex according to some newscaster so, for me, that means a long allergy season ahead!! Itchy nose, mega fits of sneazing (+10 in a row), tears streaming down my face people think I'm crying. Of course I take the anti-histamines when I can but sometimes, due to work, I absolutely have to stay away from them to stay mentally alert. I do the usual with cucumber/tea bags on eyes, drink rooisbos tea etc. How do you deal with allergies(aside from OTC meds)? And, what are you emergency make-up fix tips (like after a major tearing episode, I have to run to the bathroom to clean up my raccoon eyes and wipe away streaks of foundation on my cheek! AHG).
Ok, I am a sucker for hilarious memes. I hope this thread can be one where you guys post your favorites. NOTE: I am not offended easily, so if you are, don't open the spoiler Spoiler (Highlight to read) Bad luck Brian is totally my favorite because there are quite a few VERY inappropriate ones that I can laugh at in the comfort of my own home without be judged. Bad luck Brian is totally my favorite because there are quite a few VERY inappropriate ones that I can laugh at in the comfort of my own home without be judged. What are some of yours ?
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.
Happy Thursday BT babes! Since "throwback thursday" is such a huge trend, I thought it would be fun to do a "love it or leave it" throwback. Share your fav makeup trend throughout the years... and the one you are SOOOO glad faded away. Enjoy!
Love, love, LOVE it - Classic 50s inspired makeup. That perfect winged liner & a well defined lip. It transcends the decades & really will never go out of style
The 80s. Its fun to reminisce, but I don't think I'd ever be able to pull of the the bights colors, heavy liner, major shadow... just not me!
Cant wait to see what some of your #TBT posts!!
I've read a lot of reviews about face masks that mention how hard it is to get them off... and I recently saw a thread on beauty talk about favorite masks with a lot of comments about how this and that mask sticks to your skin, so I just wanted to share a quick tip. I'm sure most of you will roll your eyes but maybe someone hasn't thought of it: You know how some masks say to use a hot damp towel to open your pores? well a damp towel is also a really really good option for washing of a mask without making a huge mess. I have a stack of these IKEA-towels in my beauty cupboard. They are only 49 cents so not a major beauty investment: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/5021508 4/ When it's time to rinse off, I just soak a towel in warm (not hot) water, wring it out, put it over my face to "wet" the mask and then use it to gently "scrub" my face clean, rising the towel as I go. It only takes a minute, it doesn't create a massive flood on my bathroom floor, and it very gently exfoliates the face. After I get all the mask off I just rinse the towel out and throw it in the washer. If you're struggling with a mask being annoyingly hard to wash off... give it a try! I think it helps a lot
Yay for kimchikween!!!!!! How awesome it that to 1601 hearts! We all love you on here your super helpful plus there's you taking on tsb#5 to restart it! I think all the girl in tsb#5 really appreciate it! Here's to another 1601 hearts!!!!!!
I really think it takes me way too long, but no matter how hard I try (unless I skip steps) I just can't seem to take less than an hour if I'm doing a full face. Ridiculous! If I'm in a rush I can knock it to 20 minutes, but I usually have to leave out a lot of steps and it never looks the same. What about you guys?
Dear Mods, I respectfully request that ShinyMagpie be inducted into the BeautyTalk Hall of Fame. She is very helpful, and posts great info on the boards. I have no idea how long she has been here, but she has over 4,000 hearts. You only get hearts by contributing positive things, and by others seeing your value. She has been so gracious when less tenured people have become Hall of Famers before her. Please induct ShinyMagpie as a Hall of Famer I really feel she adds to my positive experience on BeautyTalk. I think others agree. Respectfully, DandyLionFluff
Since pipsqueek1582 so graciously offered her free items to us and there were enough items to start a box, we are officially opening Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013! I offered to help set up this thread with the rules and list of participants just to make it easier for everyone. I am calling this box #9 because box 7 split into 2 different boxes. The rules are basically the same as previous boxes which I borrowed (cut and pasted) from previous threads. 1. Please, NO DRUGSTORE items! 2. To keep things moving as quickly as possible, I'm requesting that people with U.S. ADDRESSES ONLY participate in this box. (I'm sorry Canadian BTers! ) 3. Once the box comes back to pipsqueek1582, she will donate what is left to a worthy charity in her area. 4. If you do not see your name on this list from the previous thread, or would like to change your spot on the list, please post a request and send me a PM if you are able to swap with someone. 5. Please be aware that shipping costs may reach upwards of $17 if the TSB gets really full. Previous TSBs have used either the Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium or Large Box (comes out to $12.35 or $16.85 with tracking & shipping confirmation). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! Here is how it works: Pipsqueek1582 will fill a box with products and send it through USPS to the next person on the list. They will go through the box, take what they want, add their own items in, then send it to the next person. What you need to do: 1. Send a Personal Message to the person before you on the list with your mailing address right away so there's no delay in shipping. 2. Start collecting, sanitizing, and labeling your beauty goodies. Please label swatched & sanitized on a plastic bag or with a removable sticker instead of using a marker on the product. 3. Read through the Rules below to know what is allowed & what is not allowed: Allowed: ☆ High-End products and items you got from subscription boxes ☆ All opened items must be labeled ("swatched", "opened", "tried/used"…) ☆ Fragrance if it's in a spray bottle (can be 1/2 used too) & must be wrapped ☆ Nail polish must be tightly closed & bubble wrapped/bagged/in a box ☆ Makeup as long as you've cleaned it with alcohol & it doesn't have big fingerprint marks/dents in it ☆ Mascara if it's sealed and/or has not been used ☆ Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags as long as they are clean ☆ Anything that is sealed ☆ Skin care items in tubes & bottles Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened ☆ Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won't leak or break & ruin everything else ☆ Keep non beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). ☆ every explodable/leakable item needs to be inside a plastic bag/ziplock Not Allowed: ☹ Pre-made samples ☹ Drugstore items ☹ No USED items with wands, such as lip glosses, mascara, or concealers ☹ Heavily used items (except for perfume) ☹ Anything that might be considered unsanitary ☹ Taking more than you put in. Keep the Value of items equal ☹ Swatching items in the box 4 Do not keep the box for more than 3 days. (USPS does home pickup, so no EXCUSES! ) If you are traveling or something comes up, please let us know ASAP so we can move you down on the list. 5. Package things carefully and put in ziplock bags. 6. TRADE on or ABOVE the value of what you took. 7. Please include a tracking number. It makes it more fun anticipating your turn. Please post it and also send me a PM. 8. Post in a picture and/or text what you took and left (picture AND written description preferred). 9. Have fun and try some things you haven't tried before! Please ask if you have anything that is questionable. ♥ No drama ♥ Be polite ♥ NO RESERVES (you may ask for people to TRY to include items. If it gets to you terriffic. If not, that's okay too) If you think there is a need for more rules, post a reply to this. *******The list is closed******** Here is the list of participants : Pipsqueek1582 (I'll start it ;-) sent 12/17 1. suddenlyforever - arrived 12/21, sent 12/23 2. wendyomgwar - arrived 12/24, sent 1/4 3.

As I was about to press "confirm" on a purchase of new blush on It Cosmetics, I realized that I have absolutely no need for yet another blush and decided that I need a makeup purchasing diet. Maybe it would be fun to go on this diet with some others (hint, hint). Who wants to shop our own collection for the next 30 days to see what new stuff we can create without buying anything? Maybe we can even post some pics. anyone brave enough?
Beware this is pic heavy! This is an unfiltered-terribly-shot-photo pictorial.... No sun today, it was rainy so you get the icky flash...There are some funky eyeball shots in here... continue if you dare *evil laugh* *Okay, nekkid eye -gross. Lets prime those bad boys with TooFaced Shadow insurance. Next cover that nekkid lid with a base- I chose Nyx jumbo eye pencil in milk.... blend it all out. *Start in the inner corner with yellow (brands don't matter any one will work), pack on turquoise in the middle and navy in the outer end. I make a v because i'm funky like that. Next I took a thin shadow brush, turned it sideways and start working inward. *After I put down my navy shade I went back over and packed on more color and used my little spongy friend to blend the colors together. I mostly just took the teal color and patted it gently in the transition areas- I didn't smudge them together, just touched the applicator gently and applied the teal until they were blended. * Now for the purple.....(pat-pat the color and tap-tap on the desk to knock off extra) I loaded my brush with color and put the brush down once on my lid. Then I made a swish with the color that was on my lid. I just kept gently working until I had the color blended down to the navy color. *back and forth 400 times ought to do it*.....I used the brush and my spongy friend to blend. *White goes in the brow bone area, and a big fluffy brush blends them all together. (because colors are happy when they get blended) *Now its time to give the bottom lid some love. Same color pattern as the top. I used my finger to blend them because all the sudden I have gotten lazy. *Top the lashes with a line of liquid... lining the waterline and tightline with a waterproof pencil. Do not get all panicky when you and your liner have an argument. We will fix wonky bugger later.... *Clean up the tail with a q-tip, curl those bad mama-jamma's, pop on some mascara, and apply some entirely awesome falsies. Because as bombshell says, they can make you conquer the world. *wink* *Now, I decided that I didn't have enough pink on so I adjusted the color. I straightened out that argument me and my liner had and added glitter to the brows.... (because glittery brows make you fancy) Aaaaand VOILA! There you go! Before and after: Products used: Toofaced shadow insurance Nyx jumbo pencil in milk *drumroll......* Wet-n-wild palette in "poster child" (yes its true!) Sugarpill shadows 2am (purple) and tako (white) Kat von D tattoo liner Marc Jacobs highliner Red Cherry lashes #82 Armani eyes to kill mascara Urban Decay glitter liner in distortion My cheap little spongy buddies and some random brushes. It doesn't matter what kind----any will do. and omg- now you have the longest post in the entire history. Thanks for looking! xoxo Calamity~
So, last week my daughter (elementary school aged) was looking over my shoulder, and a Tarte lip color was on the screen. I assume it was the bad angle, but she thought it said "Farte," and she hollered, "Farty?" I zoomed in so she could see the writing better, and we got a good laugh out of it. Fast forward to today. The Meet Your Match set just arrived in the mail. She saw the box and commented that it was cute, so I removed the tray and gave her the box. So then she was looking at the products in the tray, and she started laughing. She said she mis-read it as "Farte" again. Then she asked if I wanted some "Farty" on my lips. *sigh* Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Since us plant nerds are unable to keep that other thread on-topic... Let's hang out here! I think I've already said I'm obsessed with African violets.. (I grow them, have a blog about them, make YouTube vids about them, volunteer with the national society, run a HUGE facebook group about them, admin the facebook page of a big commercial distributor, and travel the USA to attend/enter shows & conventions... and prolly some more stuff I'm forgetting haha.) Here are just a few I've grown, (I mostly grow the minis, but I finally got coerced into getting some standards last fall, just don't have real pics yet because I haven't let them bloom since I'm trying my best to grow them out for a show) Lil Periscope Red Tiger Pixie Redhead Mac's Misty Meadow (My best show entry ever, so far) I'm also obsessed with micro Sinningias (a gesneriad cousin, related to African violets) and I am trying my hand at hybridizing them. Here's one that opened a couple weeks ago and out of all my crosses so far, it's the only one I've had that was actually different from any others that are already around--So if it stays stable I can name it, YAY! Oh yeah, and here's a pic of my light stand... (Not everything is normally in covered trays but I travel a lot and things get stuck under those at times so they don't need as much watering) : Needs more rosettes! I guess that's enough for now. I have waaaaaaay to many pics. Currently trying to beat some into submission groom/time the blooming of some to make them into show plants to enter at a show in CT in April... Then the big National convention is in May (Nashville this year, whoohoo!) Ok so... who else wants to post some of their plant pr0n?
Have a collection of extra items that you won't use but others might be interested in? Find a trade here! GUIDELINES Please list what you have available, list the condition, add a photo if you can, and what you are interested in for trade. May want to mention your location, such as U.S. When something you have to offer is no longer available OR when you have found something you were looking for, please go back and edit your post. There is a convenient cross through text option. If you list items, please use discretion with who you enter into trades with. If it's someone who's relatively new here maybe have them send to you first. Maybe set yourself up some guidelines in your post (they have to be VIB, have 100 posts etc...) about to whom you'll send to first/at the same time and anyone who doesn't meet those needs to send to you before you'll send your stuff out. (Tips thanks to Kalex.) Please consider using the Private Messages system on Beauty Talk to help ensure someone knows you are trying to contact them. The listings move to back pages and it's not always easy to keep track. You can set up to receive an email when you get a PM in your preferences.

TRADE THREAD #3 Overall trades have gone very well and many cosmetic items have found themselves new homes! However, there have been some trades that have not gone as well, so this trade post has been revised – please read it carefully! GUIDELINES Listing Your Items Please list what you have available, the condition, add a photo (if you have a lot, consider posting them under "spoiler" - the little face icon with a hand over its eyes - so tons of images don't flood the page for people scrolling) , and what you are interested in for trade. You may wish to list your location, such as the U.S. When something you have to offer is no longer available, please go back and edit your post to keep the listings more accurate! Because a number of fake items have been sent in trades, it is strongly advised you provide photos of your higher-end items, including the labeling (you may be asked for it anyway) and list WHERE you purchased the item from. Fakes are readily available from less reputable sellers and can contain toxins! It is important to everyone to know where their cosmetics come from. Acquiring Items Please use discretion with whom you enter into trades with. There is a summarized list of trusted traders here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/LIST-of- the-Successful-Traders-or-TB/td-p/1071289 Protect yourself in your trades, ask questions (such as where an item was purchased), ask for additional photos (to show level of usage and/or labeling to prove authenticity). If you don’t feel 100% comfortable doing a trade because someone is new, you can request they send their items first. Communication Please consider using the Private Messages system on Beauty Talk to help ensure someone knows you are trying to contact them. You can set up to receive an email when you get a PM in your preferences. You can also access your messages by looking under your profile on the left side of the main Beauty Talk page under your avatar and clicking on the envelope. Communication is key! Even if there is a mail delay to the giant blizzard or ice storm of 2014, not being able to get in touch with the person you are trading with is very frustrating! If you are on either side of a trade, please make sure you are able to stay in touch with the other person through the end of the trade. If you will be unable to communicate for a period of time, try to let them know that. Delivery Having tracking and insurance on shipments goes a long way to figuring out where an item might be. The USPS even puts anticipated delivery dates and the tracking numbers right on the receipts now! SUCCESSFUL TRADE EXPERIENCES?
