So I've noticed that every time I look at the reviews of a product there are at least a few unhelpful (sometimes they're a little helpful) but hilarious reviews. What are your favorites that you have seen so far?   Here's one I saw while browsing through UD Naked Skin reviews:

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)
I swear I saw a thread with a title like this today, but now I can't find it. If this is a duplicate sorry...   Keeping with the other threads of 5 things...I thought this would be fun. What are your 5 favorite music artists/bands?   I don't listen to much new music, I'm usually stuck in the 40's to 60's, but I've found a few new artists/bands I like.   1. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings 2. Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators 3. Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears 4. The Black Keys 5. Fleet Foxes

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?

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.

When reading through responses on various threads, I've seen people mention that they are overseas on business trips. I've also seen people reference schooling and their major/program.  I'm curious what everyone does for a living. It appears that beauty addicts come from all walks of life.  I am an Intensive Supervision Probation Officer. I supervise felony offenders. What do you do? Or what are you studying?

As I walk the puppies, I'm freezing here in Florida.  It's not supposed to be this cold here.  Just wondering what the weather is like in your area.  I see lots of areas seem to be getting inundated with severe amounts of snow, and I'm so thankful we don't have to worry about that cold fluffy stuff anymore.   Hope everyone stays warm!

With so many of us tea drinkers I thought this could be a place for us to talk about teas. Make some suggestions. Ask for recommendations. Share recipes. Show off teaware. Lets discuss all things tea.

One of my all time favorite BTers has finally achieved her long overdue Hall of Fame Status.  She is friendly, helpful and a wonderful asset to our community.  I know she's touched my life, and I am guessing she has touched quite a few of you as well.  We all envy her amazing eyes.  Please join me in showing her the love she deserves.  Congrats, Meaghan!  BT loves you!!!          
I know this is extremely non-make-up related but in hopes of getting some feedback, I'm asking you all - Have you used Scentsy products before? Do they work as well as they say they do? I have a glade element warmer and with it, I used the glade wax cubes - but they lose their smell super quick and don't travel well (i'll only be able to smell it if i walk up to it )  I'm thinking of placing a Scentsy order but I don't want to waste my money as they are not cheap.    Thanks everyone!

I saw this article on Yahoo about a guy who broke up with a girl he had been dating for 7 weeks. He texted her the six reasons he was breaking up with her. She said she didn't respond, and I don't blame her. The last one really gets me. LOL   Ever had a break up text like this?     ETA: The lady said this about her now former boo:  “He was 30, had a job, a car and a house. Certainly not what I normally manage to attract, so I thought I was onto something,” she said. ”He was a bit of a nerd, perhaps a bit quiet, but a genuinely nice guy all the same.”

I just renewed my drivers license yesterday and made it a point to do it in person so I could retake my picture. The last picture I took had been unexpected and I had no chance to prepare. Fingers crossed this one will come out better.   How does yours look? Any good stories out there?

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.

has anyone ever gotten a salon service at ulta before?  such as the hair cuts or styles, facials, etc.  I'm just curious about how people feel about them because their prices aren't bad compared to some high end salons.       p.s. autocorrect changed ULTA to ultra. haha so sorry about this! I realized it after i posted it!

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.
Hi beauties,       Just wanted to leave everyone with a fun Friday afternoon question as we cruise into the weekend...   I see a lot of interesting screen names on BT (sometimes in my head I try and figure out what they mean) and I'm curious to know why you chose yours.   One off the top of my head is user  fluffymuha  - she already explained to me in another thread what it means, but in my head I thought  muha  might have stood for  M ake  U p  H air A rtist.  Silly, I know.   Anyway, I'll start us off.   I have been mochapj since I was 12 or 13.  I use mocha to describe my complexion (kinda chocolatey/coffee with cream) and PJ are my first and middle initials.   Now you go...

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.

Just in case anyone needs a little morning/evening pick-me-up, I'll link some Happy News articles for you. (I'm still not clear on the rules for outside links, hopefully these won't disappear?? If they do, these are all coming from HuffPo.)   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/13/cops-fini sh-grandmas-grocery-shopping_n_6152628.html?utm_hp ...   tl;dr version: a great-grandma had her purse snatched at a Super Target, who called the cops. The two cops who responded helped her cancel all of her credit cards as soon as they arrived, then took her grocery list and finished all of her shopping for her (and paid for it!). They escorted her home, where her blind and wheel-chair bound husband was waiting for her, and returned later with new door locks and installed them for her.   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/13/french-bu lldog-does-pushups_n_6154794.html?utm_hp_ref=good- ...   tl;dr version: it's a French Bulldog doing pushups while her owner does them. deadfromcute
With Thanksgiving just over a week away, what are you thankful for?   I am thankful for my mom, good health, a job, a place to live, food, a reliable and safe car and that I only live five miles away from my local Sephora with wonderful sales associates. 
We're all fans of samples. They're cute, they're usually free, and they introduce us to new products. So, what are some of the best samples you ever got, i.e., gave you a new obsession, prompted you to pounce on the full-size ASAP, changed your outlook on life, and/or became one of your holy grail products?   For me, some of my more memorable samples have been:   -Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foudation (just tried today, omg the texture!) -Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation (I repeat, omg the texture!) -Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Eau de Parfum Spray -Ole Henriksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel -Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment (I was seriously in love, that is until I cheated on KS with OH. Sigh.) -Stila In the Light palette (one little sample card turned me not only onto this palette, but palettes in general!)   What are some of yours?       .

Hello my beautiful people!   I am looking to get a new vanity/makeup station. Currently, I am using half of my desk as a vanity and the other half as my office. It has worked fine for the past few years. But now as my makeup collection/obsession has grown larger, I ran out of room and am storing stuff in my linen closet and in my bathroom as well. I want all of my makeup, skin care, hair care, and nail polish all in one place.   Please post a photo and show me (and all of the other nosy BT out there- you know who you are!) your vanity/makeup station and if you don't mind, let me know where you got it from. I am super curious to see everyone's "battle stations"! The beauty gurus on YouTube have some outrageous vanity and makeup storage areas. I rather see what my fellow BT members have! Or if you don't have your ideal vanity, but have an inspirational photo of what your dream vanity/makeup station is, you can post it as well! I need some amazing ideas and I know you all have some great taste!!!   Thanks!
Just wondering if anyone is going to the grand opening of their store in Newport Beach this Friday. :-)   Susan
I'm in a Facebook group for a hobby. People sell things through the group. Recently, a woman said the hobby was too time consuming and shortly after, she posted pictures of {{obviously fake}} UD palettes (N1, N2, and N3). She said she was selling them for $10 each.   Within 3 hours, she had 450 orders. Many of the orders were for multiple palettes. Three or four people expressed doubt about their safety, posting links to segments on ABC's morning show and The Doctors about how tests found the fakes had different ingredients (in one case, many times the amount of lead that's safe for makeup).   Despite the discussion about fake products, people still snapped up the palettes, many saying they were giving them as Christmas gifts.   I just don't get it. WHY?!? These products are going on our faces. Around our eyes! Why are they buying this junk?

I just discovered that what goes on at Lime Crime's office is horrible. I read multiple blog posts and this is what I found   In the past, Xenia, the owner, bought pure mica from TKB and sold it as her own 'handmade' eye shadow at a higher price. Most of her stuff in the beginning was repackaged products from other companies.    She calls her company vegan, but includes beeswax and carmine in her lipsticks...... Her ingredient list is  always  changing.    If she sees a bad review of her products, she either threatens to sue the blogger reviewing her products because to her, it's considered "defamation" OR, she sends an email to her fans called futurettes to go on to the blogger's site and talk about how amazing her products are. She can't accept the fact that her lipsticks just don't work for some people. That's the thing that I hate about Xenia and her company. She threatens to sue! She is very unethical, unprofessional, and has no morals.   Another outrageous thing she did was she made a blogger delete her bad review of LC lipsticks and post up scripted apology! TWICE! It was either lie about your review or get sued! This is why you shouldn't support Lime Crime, because the company is so horrible and manipulative!   If you googled "lime crime scandal" a ton of blogs will show you the truth behind her company.    Sorry I've been ranting about brands so much. heh

We noticed some new names around here!!!   EDIT :   AND ALSO WELCOME ANNABT!!!!!!     So lets welcome and get to know our new mods!    ...ok, ill start the first few questions and you guys chime in with a few more..   Whats your holy grail lipstick??? Whats your favorite thing to "wind down" and relax? Whats your unicorn- the one product you wish you had and can't find anymore?!!  
I gave up cable a couple of years ago, a conscious decision. However I do have Hulu. I've noticed that Saturday Night Live is on there. I've watched a few episodes but have been incredibly disappointed in the writing and sketches. The show used to be funny and edgy. It used to be "the thing" to discuss at the water cooler on Mondays and people would talk about musical performances like they were a concert.    My question is this - do people still watch this show? It seems like the show lost its edge years ago. I'm actually surprised it's still on the air. Am I the only one who feels like this about SNL? Maybe the writing is just over my head or I'm not hip enough to get the jokes? But I no longer find it funny.
I have the Givenchy Le Rouge in Framboise Velours in my possession.  Beautiful color, but I may end up returning it because I should not have to use my teeth to get the tube to open so I can put it on.  With myotonic dystrophy, the muscles in the hands and feet tend to get weaker first (slow progression and begins in extremities), but this tube is just frustrating as all get out.  An expensive tube of lipstick is not worth this much grief.    So if I return/exchange it, what should I get in it's place?  Fair skin, brown eyes and hair, so give me some suggestions.  Light, dark, anything!  Or even a similar color to it.

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!    
Hi everyone! Is there any product you think it is overrated/underrated? Please share!   Overrated products: Bobbi Brown ( The yellow-based foundation just does not work for me at all and I'm quite disappointed with their eyeshadows too) Hourglass ambient lighting powder in dim light : (It is supposed to make your skin look perfect, but I really don't see the effect) Chantecaille vital essence serum UD 24/7 eyeliner:  this eyeliner does not stay!   Underrated products: theBalm eyeshadows Illamasqua cream blusher and gleam : (so creamy,pigmented and long lasting!) MAC skincare :  MAC is known for its wide selection of makeup. However, I tried a few of their skincare products and the result is amazing!
