Go raid that piggy bank, because you can now turn in your loose change for a gift card at Coinstar! go to: coinstar (dot) com/kioskfinder/Sephora to find a machine that dispenses Sephora cards near you. I AM SO EXCITED!
1. What's your favorite product that you are wearing today? 2. Anything you are looking forward to? 3. How are your fur babies doing? 4. What are you currently jamming out to? 5. What's for dinner? 1. Guerlain gel pencil eyeliner, I'm on a kick! 2. The weekend! It's supposed to rain, but I've got this excited feeling about this weekend, like anything could happen, I don't know why. 3. My cat just had a bath, so hes enjoying being fluffy and sticking out his chest to look all majestic. 4. Icons Pop, yes it's their I Don't Care song from last summer lol! 5. No clue, taking the fiancé out on a date, waiting for him to decide . He doesn't know I'm buying yet.
So I ordered a hair mask and several lipsticks from ulta, and I just got the package....like this. What the F***? This would NEVER happen with sephora! I am so disgusted and pissed off. This is so unacceptable.
It had been years since I purchased anything from the drugstore until a good friend started telling me all about the great stuff she would find. Lilahtov found those amazing Milani lip colors. Since I am on a serious low buy the next few months I thought I would give some of her product suggestions a try and VOILA! Many of the things she suggested are great!! Then I realized that there should be a thread specifically to share these low cost gems! I mean the Queen of Blending swears by Milani lipsticks, Spoiledbrat loves Wet&wild....why shouldn't I branch out? Maybelline full and soft mascara is my HG after all. How awesome would it be to actually have an idea of what you are buying, and to have even maybe have seen a swatch? Please share your drugstore hauls, swatches and reviews here and share your wealth of knowledge! I know there are lots of us who have favorite things that come from a drugstore And for those of us on a low buy this could be a life saver! Here I go: I bought a Milani lip liner in fuchsia ( love it- definitely worth 4$) , a wet & wild palette in Poster Child, Milani baked shadows in I heart you (red) and Must have fuchsia ( hot pink), and Revlon super lustrous lipstick in creme Cherries in the Snow ( inside swatch) and Revlon super lustrous lipstick shine in Fuchsia shock! So far I know I LOVE both lippies and the lip liner. More to come... All right my savvy shopping beauties! Share your best kept drug store secrets with the rest of us. I can't wait to hear and see!!! for those friends interested in cruelty free drugstore cosmetics here are the brands found to be cruelty free so far***** sulfate found : Milani, NYX , ELF, Wet & Wild, Burt's Bees, Physicians Formula and Jordana
does everyone else enjoy browsing through the beauty board? I love seeing all the different people out there...all the many ways of doing makeup and hair! It is so fascinating seeing the variety of women--the face shapes, hairstyles, makeup applications. I especially love the ones who are smiling and happy! Enough duck lips and trying to look so seductive. Isn't it fun getting a glimpse at real people and what they wear? The only thing I have noticed is that whenever I try to click on the products or the photos, I get booted off the site. Has anyone else had this happen?
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 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?
Hey all!!! I was just woundering if i go to an ulta store and ask a sale associate for a sample of a product will they give it to me like at sephora. I have been dying to try some Dermalogica products but want samples first. please help
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.
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'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:
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
So I have seen a recent influx of a lot of new people here which I take is due to the new tabs so I thought I would say welcome!!!!!!!! You in the right place for all thing makeup and more! Now I due warn you sometimes we do enable just a little. Welcome to beauty talk we are always here to talk!

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.

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 ?
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
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?
