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 have two lobe piercings in both ears (for a total of 4). I want to get my cartilage (called a helix piercing) pierced and I see a lot of people only do one ear.  Is it not stylish if you do it one in both ears? Would it look weird if both ears had the same number and positioning of piercings? Should I just get one side? I like symmetry but I also don't want my ears/face to look stupid. 
I'm an avid lover of video games as well as being an avid lover of make up! I'm sure there are more of us out there! What are you currently playing? Currently I'm pretty obsessed with Overwatch. I played a lot of League of Legends before that, and World of Warcraft before that. I got sucked into playing ranked mode with friends and now...well For other not multi-player games, I have a pretty bad backlog...I really really want to play the new Pokemon game (Pokemon Sun for that Vulpix please) since I've played every version before the newest one. Also need to play Final Fantasy XV. It just came out and it having great reviews which surprised me since I was pretty not into XII or XIII. I hope it is as good as X and the previous ones (X being my favorite!). I'm also waiting excitedly until April/May 2017 for Persona 5. It is one of my favorite series and I even got my boyfriend hooked on the series! I probably should finish the DLC for Dragon Age Inquisition too, but it's been so long and I had to replace my video card since it couldn't even run it that I forgot what happened lol

This is a thread for the new app/game Pokemon Go. Please feel free to share anything and everything about it. Who is your starter? What team do you represent? Any funny stories or places you've caught Pokemon?         I started with Squirtle, growing up playing all the Pokemon games I almost always chose the water Pokemon. And Wartortle is one of my top favorites. I just started playing and haven't left my house yet, but I've found a Meowth on my bed. I'm only level two, but when the time comes I will be representing Team Mystic, Articuno is my all time favorite legendary.

**This is by invite only; all participants are already identified**   Hey ladies!!!! It's that time of year again! Now that we've all used our Friends and Family codes and Rouge discounts, let's pass along some of our unused stuff. Last years Invite Only TSB ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /By-Invite-Fall-Winter-TSB/m-p/2182116/highlight/t ... ) went so well I decided it was a good idea to do it all over again!      Like the Queens above, I have the rep around BT lately of having RBF/BRF! I'm turning my perceived indifference and attitude into kindness. One new caveat to this TSB: I am not keeping ANYTHING at the end of this; all the proceeds after the last trade go directly to charity.   Many of you know I work with Believe in Tomorrow, a charity servicing families at Johns Hopkins whose children are receiving treatment. The Invite Only TSB last year did SO WELL that they are still stacked with stuff! This year the left over abundance will go to The Katherine Hanley Center, a charity @SuzeAlex works with. Their mission is to provide temporary housing to homeless families in the Fairfax Co, VA area. They receive services that help them formulate a plan to locate permanent house as quickly as possible. The shelter is an integral part to the county's 10 year plan to end homelessness.     TSB Best Practices:  Spoiler (Highlight to read) http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight ... http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight /true#M59515 This TSB Rules:  Spoiler (Highlight to read) - This is a Mid Range to Luxe, New/ Gently Used TSB - Includes everything from Benefit to Tom Ford and above.  - TSB includes Skincare, Makeup, Tools, Perfume - We are trading like for like WITH THE EXCEPTION of members who are shippers Internationally.

I was just wondering what's going on with Formula X, almost all of their products are on sale. Is Sephora discontinuing their partnership or are they making way for all new products and nail polish colours? New packaging? I'm super curious so it's going to bug me till I find out

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?

Hey guys! I would really and truly appreciate your help! Being a sephora fan, i am currently writing about online brand communities and am investigating Beauty Talk for my final year thesis! Please take the time to answer a few questions - it takes just 1 minute You can find the link to my survey on my twitter KayleighTobin21 Thank you sooo much!!
A couple of weeks ago I posted a question about The Canker Spanker and if anyone had tried it for oral canker sores. A couple of people suggested other remedies, but I ordered it anyway. Wow - if you suffer (if you get cankers, you know) do yourself a favor and order it. Worked SO fast I was thanking the Lord.   While cankers give your lips a swollen look... buy a lip plumper instead!
animaltesting.jpg
  Hey y'all!   I felt like starting a conversation about animal testing for cosmetics. I used to be a lot more active in the community here, but recently I got pretty busy in my personal life and in my career. But I wanted to come back to talk about something that no one here ever *really* talks about: Animal testing for cosmetics.   The thing is, plenty of people talk about which products or brands are cruelty-free, but no one ever really addresses what actually goes on in the labs here, and why some people know there are cruelty-free options but still choose the animal-tested version because it's their HG. I totally understand finding the perfect product and not wanting to go on the hunt again, for the record.   Would anyone like to join me in a dialogue about animal testing? Not just about what goes on, or what animals  are tested on, or what companies do it, but how you *personally* feel about it? Do you think about it often? Does it ever cross your mind?     I love my pets, and I would never want anything bad or even remotely unpleasant to happen to them, so when I think about what happens in cosmetics testing labs, well, at first I didn't know what went on.    Once I found out, it disgusted me. I mean, honestly, not only do they rub chemicals into their eyes or skin, they actually administer known lethal doses, and they do really creepy-evil tests on pregnant mice and bunnies and then kill them and study the unborn babies. It's really disgusting what goes on.   Anyway, anyone want to talk about this? Are you transitioning to cruelty-free only products?    Do you think animal testing for cosmetics is wrong?   Do you think it's wrong for an animal to suffer for us to have pretty eyelashes?   Let's talk about it!      Edited for typos.  
Hello, I have a question that maybe you could help me with. I've been into Korean skincare and cosmetics for YEARS now and all of a sudden the US is finally catching on to how amazing these products are. I have been using a 10-12 step Korean skincare routine for a long time and have recently gotten my friends on board. My question is, are there any selling or promoting opportunities available with such products ...similar to Avon, Mary Kay, etc.? I would LOVE to get my hands on a huge bulk order of Korean skincare goodies and help promote and sell the brands. I feel I'd be very successful because of my love and passion for K-beauty! Thank you for taking the time to read this. Roxanne Mori

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 regularly contact people off the local CL to barter my unwanted GWP's for new things.. I thought I'd make a thread on my experience for anyone that was interested in knowing how it goes!   I only deal with 'straight trade', no cash changes hands.    2016.11.18 - Aliens vs. The Atomizer Spoiler (Highlight to read) 10 vials of Therry Mugler "Aliens" perfume traded for a rainbow fragrance atomizer! 10 vials of Therry Mugler "Aliens" perfume traded for a rainbow fragrance atomizer!  2016.10.22 - YSL helped my EYES Spoiler (Highlight to read) YSL Tint in Oil deluxe sample traded for a pair of 10x zoom binoculars!

Since there seems to be a lot of wonderful Hello Kitty collabs lately, I thought I would start a thread. A place to discuss HK cosmetic collabs or just HK cuteness in general!      (image: Sanrio)

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    
A little birdie at Ulta (aka a sales associate/MUA) told me that they heard they are going to get NARS later this year. (Edit: Not sure if this is true, this is only what she told me she heard.)   Disclaimer! I was only in there because I had a coupon and my location now carries Lipstick Queen, which I adore. Though I am still on the old, gross point system.   Anyway, if I ever get onto the new point system and they really do start carrying NARS, that would be pretty amazing!
Hi, Could someone please tell me what Ipsy and Birchbox is?  I have no clue!  Thx!!

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?
Hey Guys,   I'm a new beauty influencer & blogger. Please check out my channel I upload new videos twice a week.      I would appreciate the support, tell your friends!

  First off I want to say that BT is one of the highlights of my day and I truly enjoy these forums. It is one of the first things I do when i turn on my computer in the morning and the last thing I do before going to bed. It would be safe to say that BT is an incredibly impt part of my life.   This is why I think it is impt that I share the following with all of my BT friends:   Last Wednesday night, Oct 5, 2016, I woke up in the trauma ward of my local hospital. Earlier that day I had been involved in serious motor vehicle accident where my car was totaled and I had sustained multiple serious injuries. Over the course of the following 48 hours in the hospital, I subsequently had two major surgeries and a myriad of tests.  It was quite something to experience,   I do not want to bore you with my troubles and i am not coming here begging for sympathy. My main reason for posting this info is to simply let my friends I have made on BT know what happened, especially if I am not as vocal in the coming months.   For those who are wondering, I am now in a medical rehabilitation center, having been discharged from the hospital four days ago. I am completely (temporarily) disabled on my entire left side from the chest down. (thank goodness I am a righty.) From here on I will focus on daily three hour sessions in both physical & occupational therapy focused on getting me back to be the normal and fully functioning 36 year old woman that I was up until a week ago. They say I will be here for many weeks/months.   I do still plan to “lurk” on the BT boards but right now between the recent trauma. feeling quite down, and honestly just losing the will to shop, (I know, shriek!)  I don’t think I would be as valuable a contributor.   Sending my love to all my BT friends… I’ll be thinking about ya!
I am about $270 from re-qualifying for rouge. I will have to miss 20% sale because of family reason. So now I am confused to what else to purchase, if any, to become rouge.    Is it worth it for you? What is something that you really enjoyed? I live in Canada so we don't have flash.   Thanks!
hi! I am a soon to be law student and while I love beauty blogs, so many feature routines that simply overwhelm me. Are there any good low maintenance/student lifestyle friendly blogs to recommend? Thank you!

I'm abandoning this thread. Maybe leaving BT for good. I'm sorry that I've deleted all my messages, but I no longer feel safe on this board and I don't want personal information about myself here.    This used to be a safe place for me. No longer. I wish all of you well and I hope you continue to support each other here. Xoxo

OFF-TOPIC thread devoted to just The Walking Dead-- Anyone who loves the show is welcome to geek out about it here!! Let's talk about past OR present story lines, theorize, ask questions about things we might not have understood, grieve for lost characters, explain what makes us fans, show off TWD-related merchandise, etc.  Oh and memes of course!  We should probably try to use the SPOILER TAGS in here when talking about story lines so we don't accidentally ruin anyone else's "viewing experience"! (FYI the spoiler button is at the top of your post box, the circular symbol right after  ABC)   First, I just want to say how I came to I love this show. I am not generally a fan of zombie stuff (well, I liked the original Dawn of the Dead, but I think that's because I got to fantasize about living in a mall!)   It was season 2 or 3 when I accidentally got hooked. Some friends of mine without cable asked me to DVR the show for them, so I did for a few weeks. I'd planned to just busy myself otherwise when they came over to watch, but I wound up having a nasty flu the night they finally showed up and I was glued to my recliner. I thought I'd just close my eyes and sleep, but I was sucked in from the start, and since I'd missed a season or two, I kept pausing it to ask my friends questions "Why is he.." "How did that...?"    Then I went back and watched all the previous stuff to be caught up, so I kinda watched it Pulp Fiction-style.   The story lines are so complex and intriguing that you don't even notice the gore after a (very short) while. It's more suspenseful than scary, and also sad, and funny, and more than anything: heartwarming (yes, really). It's really all about survival and how people fight to live (and save their loved ones) even when there's really not much to live for. (I suffer with severe depression and other issues, so that is the part that kinda inspires me most of all.)    Doesn't hurt that Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus are so hot, either.       SO ANYHOOZ....    Regarding the most recent episode from 2.16.14: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Anyone else think Lizzie is one evil little kid? My gawd, I seriously thought she was going to suffocate baby Judith the other night. And after seeing her cut up the rabbits, I'm pretty sure now she was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison, and doing other weird stuff with them.

Hi I am just wondering if any groups exist for postal exchanges?   I live in the UK and love everything beauty related. Unfortunately not everything is available for shipping to the UK on the Sephora website. I understand that works the same for many members here too. Some items in the UK are not available for purchase for USA residents.   I am wondering if a group already exists where international members help purchase & post items? I have a huge list that I am lusting over but none on the list is available for purchase.
I am planning to have a revamp done for my parlour. I prefer the cabinets on the wall rather than the normal cabinet furniture. Would like to know more about them from those who have such cabinets in their parlours. Need help with the best custom cabinet makers and the type to go for (walk-in, custom, linen, reach-in) so that I can comfortably stack all the beauty productsand equipments avoiding cluttering. Any suggestions regarding lancaster cabinets and closets
