So I'll be travelling to the U.S from Canada next week, this will be my first time so I'm kinda lost in my list as its getting dangerously long..I'll be in Maryland for few days then to Illinois for couple of weeks.. I would love some shopping guidance from anyone that can spare a tip on must haves from brands ( drugstore included) that are not available to us Canadians or are way over priced and worth getting while I'm there..also if anyone can advise where the best deals will be after Xmas or coupons or gwp that I should look for such as at ulta, Macy's etc.. I want to be smart about my purchases..some beauty brands I may purchase from are clinique, nars, benefit, Chanel, Estée lauder and Mac..I'll even take general shopping suggestions since I'll probably buy non beauty products as well for my lil ones and myself/hubs. The one thing on my list for sure are the Lorac palettes since we don't have them here and I think only ulta or kohls has them, anyone know if any coupons can be used with these? Thank you in advance..sorry for the long post and if this is posted in the wrong area as its my first time posting..but I'm super excited and want to make sure I stock up on some good things before I go back on my no buy until spring!
With many of us talking about some of my favorite shows, The Walking Dead and Once Upon a Time, I thought I'd get the ball rolling. Put up your lists everyone! 1. The Walking Dead 2. Once Upon a Time 3. So You Think You Can Dance 4. Sherlock 5. Pride and Prejudice (with Colin Firth)
Now that the weather is getting colder (in most places) more of us are switching to hot tea, coco, etc. So lets share - who is drinking what (from teas, to coffees to even wines, etc), post a pic if you would like ; other wise just specify the name of your beverage and continue to enjoy it My husband woke me up with a hot tea for breakfast. It was Green Mint Tea - now I feel refreshed, awake but still not ready for this day !!!
So, I just saw this article on LifeHack of why highly successful people wear the same thing everyday. Not the same clothes everyday, but the same style of outfit. Like Steve Jobs and his turtle necks. I am the most indecisive person ever, and if anyone needs a uniform it's probably me. I have only recently started to simplify my closet, but the only thing my clothes have in common so far is the color scheme (a lot of blues or grey and black) and skinny jeans. So I thought it would be a fun topic to see what your go-to style is. What are some of your favorite items to wear day to day?
This will be US only. I had a lot of fun [in a stressful kind of way I suppose] last year and wanted to see if anyone would be interested in doing this again! ❤❤ The Rundown ❤ Same as last year, we will be using elfster do conduct the exchange. It's very easy, convenient, does a random draw, lets you make a wishlist, and allows for the asking of anonymous questions so you don't have to wonder 'will they hate this color or not...'. You will have to add your address to elfster, but no one will see it except for the person who is your santa. Let me know you are interested and I will message you the group URL. ❤❤ Gifting Rules ❤ The minimum is $35 and there is no max. Now note, it doesn't have to be a single item that is $35. It can be multiple items from off of the persons wishlist that total up to be $35. ❤ Feel free to add random goodies to your box to make it more personal, not a requirement, but just throwing it out there that you can. ❤❤ Deadlines ❤ To Sign Up: November 4th. Names will be drawn on November 5th and elfster will send you an email with who you got. ❤ To Send Gift: December 12th. Gifts will need to be sent by or on this date. If you have any questions feel free to post them here or shoot me a PM. Thanks everyone! Looking foreword to it.
Alright everyone, you know the deal. Young 'uns listen up if your only reference to the TV show Friends is something your parents watched. On second thought... if you're that young, this might not be the best thread for you. I'm officially giving this thread an R rating for mature concepts and mild to moderate sexuality. On the TV show Friends, Ross and Rachel each were allowed to maintain a list of 5 people/celebrities with whom they could cheat on eachother with, and the other person couldn't get mad. Without going further into the episode, who's on your list? At least right now... until it changes with everybody else's posts (which is exactly why you don't laminate your list like Ross did!) 1. Bradley Cooper 2. Christian Bale 3. Carlos Bocanegra (former captain of the men's US soccer team) Spoiler (Highlight to read) 4. Hugh Jackman 5. Mike Rowe
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
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!
In light of the Christmas Spirit, I'd like to start this temporary topic of Christmas songs. This is one of my favorite Christmas songs, what is yours, which song makes your heart tremble a bit, make you happy, make you sing?
Just wondering how does everyone pull off this look because I'm having trouble coming up with an acceptable classy way of pulling it off without looking unacceptable (trashy).. please share your fashion tips!! Thanks!
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?
"In the near future, we are going to be expanding our international shipping to start including other countries and in order to do this, we will need to start charging duty on all orders including those shipping to Canada. We truly apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding."
I've just got into makeup recently and have been hearing about subscription boxes. I really wanted Wantable makeup boxes, but they don't ship to canada :/. Ipsy box was also interesting being only $10 per month, but the problem is if I do yearly subscription, it's extra $54 per year. Is it worth it? Also, is there any other Canadian makeup subscription boxes that is a good deal?
So I feel like doing my makeup, but it's raining so I don't think I'll be going out. That's not the point of this status though. What kind of music do you prefer on a rainy day? Mine goes from classical music, to the beatles, and of course - David Bowie! Edited to include the picture I took the other day.
...to actually use the products that I buy. It's so unreasonable! Doesn't he realise if I use it it's NOT GOING TO BE AS PRETTY ANYMORE?? Is it wrong that I just want to look at the beautiful palettes and just never touch them? Obviously what I need is a duplicate of every palette I buy. One to use, and one to just look at. That seems logical, right? Does anyone else have this problem? You hate using your stuff because then it's no longer in mint condition? (Thank god I never got into collecting action figures!)
So this little guy is my recent additional to my reptilian clan lol. He's was about 6 months old when I got him in October. I still haven't named him! Just couldn't come up with an awesome name that suited him. So please, post your suggestions! Thanks!
The best way to get in shape is to run but it can be harder than you think. Luckily I'm starting to enjoy my runs. I listen to my Zombies, Run story app but that's another thread. What I'm interested in is a new playlist. What songs get you motivated to run or workout, what songs do you enjoy when working up a sweat? Let's share our Playlist!!
orginal picture i was trying to imitate i thought it would be funny and to de-stress by playing around with makeup yes i did that for anyone who asks i was pulling my hair up so there is the elbow yes it is for humor i used the vice 3 palette and revlon lip stain/ gloss i have a weird sense of humor
It's now officially Christmas time in our household. December 1st is the day I start my Christmas baking and the festive and sometimes annoying music is allowed to play. I just finished my first batch of cookies - peacan shortbread. This first batch never lasts the day but it is the first of many many cookies. I bake a batch (or seven) a day until Christmas and always have an eager crowd of people wanting big tins of them to take home . This is one of many traditions in our house. The baking for me is more fun than actual Christmas, haha. I'm interested in hearing about special little things you all do over your holidays. Little things you look forward to every year and the things that make you smile
UPDATE!!! Please check if the person you are posting about already has status. Once they have that I no longer add them up. This will help keep the thread clearer, and to be honest make this job easier for me.

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.
Okay, I know it's probably silly, but my goal before the end of the year was to reach 10,000 points with my card and I did it! I have no idea what I will do with them but it's really nice to have them. I love the look on the Sephora sales associates faces when they see the total.
I was asked to aprticipate in an online survery yesterday about Sephora. It had an interesting question, something along the lines of "For 750 BI points, would you travel to and attend an event with brand reps, makeup artists, tutorials, etc.?" I think the choices were Chicago, Vegas, LA, San Fran, and somewhere in TX. So... would you??
Hello BTers! Okay I know I am posting way to much tonight but I'm shopping so my mind is all on beauty right now. I am placing an order on FTB Beauty (a great website for those hard to get a hold of brands in Canada) and ordering a whack of Sigma eye brushes, and I saw that they have the Benjabelle Sunflower brush tree which EmilyNoel83 did a review on and I am totally getting it! It hangs your brushes upside down and has 3 different sized holders so you can dry all sorts of brushes at the same time. Does anyone have one?
So finals are this week and kicking my butt. Basically, I'm ridiculously stressed and I'm studying non-stop (except for when I need a break, which is when I come on here, haha). I put a face mask on last night as a "reward" for studying so much! Sounds crazy! And then I turned to my boyfriend, and asked if I could put one on him too! To my surprise he said he didn't mind and it would be fun to "have our faces painted together." It was awesome (of course he wouldn't take a picture with me though!!) Anyone have any stories to tell where you got your S/O to try something beauty related even if they never have before?!
A while back I had made a look using the colors of the stray cat that took shelter in my home, I've fed and given her water ever since. This is the second time she's had kittens, unfortunately the last litter didn't survive and from what I know she only had two this time but only one has made it to the barely opening eyes stage. She had them on July 1st. I haven't named the kitty yet, but here's a picture of his(I'm thinking it's a he) cuteness. Taken today. It's been 2 months and 7 days since little neko was born. Here is his updated picture, he posed for it. He posed a lot.

I added in some brand new Julep, Kiels, and a couple MAC. I hope everybody has a grand time, I had lots of fun putting this together! I am meeting Ivy very shortly to pass on the box to the next station! ************************************************** **** You also need to be able to meet the rules in a timely manner, keep the box moving within three days. You need to be able to post photos of what you take and link them in this thread. This is a longer train, so if you have any travel plans in the next 2-3 months, you need to include this information when you contact me. You need to: 1) Post in this thread 2) PM me, include full name, full address, if you were on a previous train, and if not the info above (Member for how long, somebody else who can vouch for you). This is a second round of a box, so there is a HUGE variety in here, so much great stuff (thank you previous participants!!). Very exciting to start a box that is such a great mix to start with. We had so much fun on the previous train (and it moved so fast!) that I know this will be great! BY AGREEING TO PARTICIPATE YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE RULES! ****NO RESERVE**** ****No Swatching items from the box**** ****ITEMS THAT MAY BE INCLUDED**** ALL SEALED ITEMS are welcome, UNLESS sealed NO: Nothing you dip your fingers in if opened NO opened mascara NO opened lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze). If any of these are new, tape them shut and label them as new. Leave other lipsticks/etc untapped so people can see the colours. NOTHING THAT CAN'T BE CLEANED or SANITIZED all cosmetic/skin care samples are fine ***Other: For full sized items, there is a strict one in one out policy for drug store items: ie: If you want to trade in a drug store item, you must be taking out a drug store item (Feel free to take out extra drug store items lol). This will ensure that this box is largely of higher quality cosmetics (While still allowing for some variety). There will be just a few drug store items per box *Be polite *Don't keep the box longer than a few days (please try to keep the box moving in a timely manner) * All packages must include a tracking number, Send me (@Bcteagirl) the tracking number. *TRADE ON OR ABOVE the value of the item you took -don't take all of one kind of item, for example, if there are 3 of one perfume, take only 1 so that others will have a chance to try them - One in/one out rule for any drugstore cosmetics (which are limited) -post in a picture and/or text what you took and left -package things carefully and put things that could leak in ziplock bags **YOU MUST have a tracking number for your package, and it must be posted here! Once the train order is set, you need to PM the person who is sending to you your address right away, don't wait until the train is close to you!
