I recently have been buying Paula's Choice products. Earlier I discovered there is a refer a friend program. Basically if I refer you by sending you a link you get $10 off a $15 purchase and so do I. If anyone is interested you can message me. If you are not interested in this I also found a 15% off anything on the site coupon which should expire the end of February. AMNEWYEAR15
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON Tarte now ships to Canada!
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?

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~
~*~*~*~*~ No Buy Thread for Feb/Mar 2014~*~*~*~*~ I n an attempt to be a conscious/responsible shopper instead of beauty product hoarder, I went on a no buy from mid-Dec to mid-Jan. Now that I've done my little shopping splurge, time to save up some money for tax and other boring needs. Therefore, I am now on a no-buy for the whole month of Feb and March . The goal for rest of the year is to spend just enough to qualify for VIB , and I'm going to try fund most of it through Swagbucks/Bing Rewards/Ebates (PM me if you want to know more about those sites). To keep myself accountable, I will tally up my total Sephora and beauty spending here as I go along. Yes, I'm airing out my dirty laundry. Anyone/everyone is welcome to join me. This is not meant to bash any particular products, but if you post then I'll give you reasons why you should delay the purchase, consider the alternative, or why you don't need it. I do not intend to judge or offend, so the disabler kitty will be helping me to keep the tone light: I will keep all my disabling to this thread, so please, ladies, let's not turn this into an enable thread . And I may need a little nudge from you ladies to help disable my own urges, too. =) Now then, will I succumb to exciting advertisements and fancy packaging? or will I hold onto my will power and succeed in actually saving some money?
Hey Ladies, I'm just curious what you personally prefer, natural makeup look or makeup with extra color/pop? Also, which do you think guys/your boyfriend prefer? This is totally just for the fun of it!
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
I went to sephora today and a very sweet lady gave me a free full on facial. She asked me if I could give her a shoutout on sephora's website, but I didn't realize, until now, that I don't know how to give a shoutout. She said it will give her points and I would love to give her those points since the facial was free and I couldn't pay her. Please let me know how to give her a shoutout!
Hello beauties!! I just wanted to wish you all a beautiful Women's Day today! It is time to celebrate our inside and outside beauty... because we are ALL beautiful!!! Have a wonderful day ladies! And don't forget that you are amazing and beautiful!!!
It's that time again! So February was better than January but what will March bring? Big congratulations to the following BT members who have joined ipsy they are Spacesuit Highly doubtful that we would get a sneak peek today but should have one starting Monday! 1st sneak peak Confirmed bareminerals marvelous movie lip gloss and Bareminerals marvelous moxie lipstick 2nd sneak peek 3rd sneak peek 4th sneak peek
So Glam Glow is having a sale where it's items are 20% with code "GLAM20" i just thought i share...to me it's not worth it because with the shipping i'm only saving 8 bucks. just visit their site and click on products.
I have a US post box..But I live in Canada. My dilemma is My CAD cart is 134, my USA cart is 110. If I order it to the USA, I save 24 bucks, and I get my package like..at least a week faster. And good chance I won't pay duty. If I order to CAD, I get charged 24 more, it takes a week or two longer to get my package, and may get charge duty. US is kind of a hassle.. But is it worth it?? Huge First World Problem, WWYD?
So I go through phases with different culture and now I'm on a Korean phase, Korean music, Korean TV show, Korean skincare, and Korean food. I saw ppl eating Bindaetteok on a show and really really want to make it. Does anyone have a good recipe for that? Also, does anyone have any good recipe for any Korean food aside from Kimchi fried rice (the one dish I made/liked so far).
So all these threads regarding "the drama" have been popping up, but since I took a little break from BT, I completely missed out and am now completely confused. From what I've read, it's basically a feud between the new BT'ers and the oldies. Everything still's so vague though, and there have been these really random comments regarding drama on BT. Can someone be a dear and explain to me just what kind of hell broke loose on what I once thought was a forum filled with the nicest, most accepting people I ever had the honor of meeting online.
I'm not sure about this but I think my crush likes me! He finally came back to school after 3 weeks! He's messaged me several times on Facebook this past week (without me messaging him first) as well. The day he came back I was wearing a mix of MAC Heroine and Punk Couture on my lips and he told me he liked it a lot, it was really bold and daring (in his eyes) and not a lot of girls can rock purple lips. I also caught him staring at me again. I noticed every time I did, his ears would turn red and he would look away really fast. I don't really talk to anyone in our Ceramics class since I am very shy unless they ask me for help or if they need something. We hung out once outside of class and got to know each other a little bit. What do you ladies think?
Guess What ? I am ALMOST a VIP ROGUE !!!!!!! ~ ONLY 127 Points to go!!!!! lol Anyone else have any happy, exciting, but personal excitement that is more than likley pointless to anyone else on our SEPHORA BOARDS !!!!
This is a thread to post products that are Radiant Orchid-themed! This color definitely needs more attention because it's a nice change from the heavy wine, jewel, and brown tones I've been seeing lately. EDIT: Feel free to correct me if you feel my color choices are off
Dear Beauty/Makeup Holics! I just became a VIB member and am THIS close to making VIB Rouge. Its one of the most exciting things to happen to me....aside from getting married. I recently heard about an annual 20% off sale. Is this true? Why have I never heard of this before? If any of you are in Canada, can you please let me know when the even will be this year? Also, are there any special items that Sephora puts out for this event? Can I make purchases online too, or is this event in store exclusively? Also, do I need a promo code or can I just bring my VIB member card? Is this event open to everyone or just for Insider members? I'm so excited and couldn't sleep last night just thinking about all the items in my basket I wish to purchase!
Hello everyone! My name is Julie and this is my first post. I'm a Rouge level and I decided for Lent that I will not only give up chocolate, but also not do any Sephora, Ulta, Sally Beauty and Merle Norman shopping for the Lenten season. We'll see how it goes and I will probably need support from all of you. I would then like to know what you are giving up for Lent.
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.
