I've been stalking her heart count, because I took my BT break when she hit 2500. Thinking 3500 was more party appropriate than 3000, I've been waiting. Zpsid91 is one of my favorite BTers, because she has a great, loving nature. She deserves a million hearts, so I hope we celebrate her 5k soon. If you love her as much as I do, drop by and tell her.
Hi ladies, Read on a blog about getting great discounts on high end beauty items. I think she said the website she buys from is cosme-de. Does anyone have any experiences with this site? Is it legit? Do you guys know of any other LEGIT discount sites? I really am wary about buying online in general, but esp. from not well known international sites. TIA x
I like my job well enough but after two glorious weeks off, it's not very appealing right now. I only work part time so I won't complain but I would much rather stay home! I know, wouldn't we all?! Well, in all reality, I have nothing to complain about...so I will just grumble and carry on!
Although this is not makeup-related, I figured there would be some overlap with this interest and luxury handbags for some ladies out there. So, I've been hunting for a particular handbag for a few months and found it with a boutique in Australia. The only items I have ordered from abroad have been relatively inexpensive (like Sleek makeup). I was wondering if anyone has tips on duties, GST, or any other unexpected fees I should be anticipating (as well as anyone possible headaches). Considering it's a pricey item already, I would like to minimize being caught off-guard.
When in doubt, I turn to BT lol this is mainly for moms but anyone with advice can chime in please. As yall know, my youngest had pnuemonia about a month ago. Well. We were back in the er this weekend with the same thing. They sent us home with a nebulizer and some anti biotics. My question is this. Anyone else have a kid, or did you have as a kid, recurring pneumonia? And if so any ideas of how I can keep it at bay? I hate to see my little man so sick :/
😢 My Mom is now in Heaven with my Dad. She EARNED that place in Heaven Every Day Of Her Life. Now it is eternal peace for her in an unbroken body. She missed my amazing Father terribly. More update/info on original "911" thread, think it may be in 'Off-Topic' section. Hope this can stay here a while, I need even more prayers now.....dealing with the not so nice and ALWAYS ready for a fight sibs. No Mom to defend and hug me. 😢 Thanks everyone.
I just wonder because my cousin in law was talking to some family overseas the other day and another relative referred to me as, "the funny one" I don't see myself that way really so I thought it might be fun to see what you think others would refer to you as, if they only could use one word.
Hi guys, you are so awesome! Thank you so much. ❤ I just did an update, thanks and mini-rant to the thread I mentioned above, but it didn't show up here on the main page. . Must have gone somewhere else, maybe some of you can find it and check it out. Thanks again sweet friends, new and old.
I am going to be going to NY for a week over the New Year holiday. I have only been to NY once before, years ago. Regarding makeup, where do you all suggest I visit. Kinda like a Make up bucket list. I was thinking: 1)Visit a Tom Ford counter 2)There use to be post about a Bite store that would make custom lipsticks so I though that may be fun 3) Visit a Guerlain or Hourglass counter 4) any other suggestions? Currently I live an hour from a Sephora and two hours from a small Nordstrom's so I don't get to visit many high end make up counters. Also - I am a cupcake/sweet fanatic - Any suggestions on that one. The only place I know of so far called Juniors.
I am pumped. I don't know if we will get the same sort of offerings as our neighbours down south but I sure hope we get some good deals. There are so many Canadians willing to purchase awesome makeup and just not enough companies/websites etc.. for us Canadians to purchase from. Some websites like Too Faced have started to ship to us but not without the hefty duty price tag and off course our exchange rate sucks right now (and there's always that darn shipping threshold). Even when our exchange was par we have been paying quite a bit of a difference from Americans. We always seem to get the short end of the stick but I'm hoping that changes soon- especially with the launch of Urban Decay (perhaps breaking barriers and offering Canadians what we want?)...
I guess maybe this is going to be a rant. I am not sure yet. But I got to thinking about the fact that I am rouge. And that I don't have a freestanding sephora within 250 miles of me. Which means I have spent a good deal of money in SiJCP. Yet when it comes down to it, i you don't have a freestanding what is the point of being rouge? Seriously. SiJCP gets the mailers for free stuff. This i know. But the rouge events, ( The face mask thing is what set this thought train off in my head ) aren't EVER at SiJCP. The reasons that have been given to me have always been because of space. I can see that. But what is the point of touting the rouge program when I get zero benefits from it given the fact that I don't have a freestanding near me? The makeup applications? If you are rouge you have most of the things that you want and are probably pretty decent at applying it. and even if you are too lazy to do your own makeup for whatever event you decide you want someone to apply it, you better make sure that it is at least 2 weeks in advance other wise you are just out of luck. I learned that one when I wanted to have my makeup done and have some "me" time before a date night with the hubby. Anyways. I guess that did turn into a rant huh? :/
I've been chatting with some fellow coffee addicts over in the Random Thoughts thread but I thought maybe I should make a separate thread. So let's discuss anything/everything about coffee! I just got the Peet's Sumatra blend in the k cups and I really like it! Need to make a note to try their Major Dickinsons Blend since it's so popular.
Wrote a longer post but it wouldn't let me send. Day 35 of My Mom's Hospitalization and they started to give her Morphine just a little while ago and are stopping some other meds. This could end any minute or she could linger like this for an unknown period of time. This wonderful and selfless woman deserves a quick passing. Please spread the word, if you don't mind. You have helped me through the passing of my incredible Father just shy of 2 years ago and the sudden passing of my 24/7 dear sweet companion, my Greyhound Brinny.I was blessed with the best parents ever. I hope BT Mods will allow this to stay on the main board. Thanks all, gotta go. No Hearts please. Just good stuff and we'll wishes. Will update. Going to hospital shortly. Thanks my friends. 😢
I just wanted to make a suggestion to those that post reviews of products: when you talk about how great a shade or color is, PLEASE, PLEASE also tell us the shade/color name in your review that you are talking about! I get frustrated when someone has raved about a specific shade, and they don't tell me which shade they are raving about! Ugh! They will say "this is the best color for light toned skin", and then they don't say which one they are talking about. Just a suggestion that would really help those reading reviews!
I'm asking this question to you all because I have a feeling you have more experience in this that I do! Last Saturday, I went to the Lancome counter to get some foundation. The counter supervisor was there and asked if I wanted to come the following Saturday (tomorrow) for a make over. She said that the "national team" was going to be there and thought I'd be an "ideal candidate" for one. She waived the $35 fee to reserve a spot and told me that after the make over, I'll have a "free" $35 to spend on anything I want. So now I feel pressured that a space is being reserved for me. I've had 3 make overs in my lifetime and all have been what I consider failures. No one really knew how to do anything with my asian/monolid eyes. The foundation has always been "off" since I'm half black/japanese I suppose I'm dark with extreme yellow undertones and overall, I couldn't wait to get home to take it all off. So. . . do any of you have some advice for this go around so it won't suck so much for me? LOL I don't know if it is appropriate to tell them I don't like something or to try to steer the direction of what they are doing. I guess I don't know the etiquette/protocols of it and I don't want to waste an hour of my time just to look at myself in the mirror and go "ew!!!" I have high anxiety and this has caused me to be anxious all week! (Am I even making any sense?) Thanks!
Hey guys!! I know this is not beauty related but I don't know where else to ask? I was wondering if anyone has an American Eagle coupon code - you know how if you are a rewards member you get a code depending on your points/amount you spent in the month? Does anyone have a code for this month that they are not going to use? If so please let me know, because I wanted to buy a big purchase from there and I really can't afford it without a coupon!! Sorry for the long post xoxo -Mariel

Hello! I'm planning on going to San Francisco in a few months. I wondered if there were any BTers in the area who would possible be interested in a quick hello. And who could answer a few touristy questions for me.
Hello there beauties, Yesterday I received my order of PTR sunscreen stick and was shocked to see that Sephora sent me an expired product. I didn't even realize some cosmetics had a set expiration date, since most of them go by the " good for xx months after open" rule. I found out that products with some special active ingredients are good for only some time after manufacture, even if never open. But isn't Sephora's first duty to make sure they ship only products that are still proper for consumption? Taking by the very standard answer I got from costumer service "I'm sorry. You are welcome to return it", Sephora isn't as shocked as I. It made me very curious to know how often does it happen. Have you ever received an expired product? Or was I just very unlucky? Should I risk ordering this kind of product from them again?
I have been worrying about making my first thread here on BT. Actually, I worry a LOT about lots of things! Anyway, I thought the off-topic section would be a good way to start. Just want to share that I am ridiculously anxious bc I have to go to a work meeting today and it's basically being held bc one person is impossible to work with. It's a very long time coming and I am hopefully for a decent outcome but I'm so nervous. Of course, I am anxious on a 'normal' day but today is not a 'normal' day, lol. Wish me luck!!! Feel free to add your own random thoughts here. Tell me stuff!
Thought this would be fun for the ladies of BT to try! Marie Claire posted this quiz a few days ago and I'd been dying to try it (ok maybe not dying ). Unfortunately I don't think it's optimized for mobile devices so hopefully you all will try it once you can access a desktop. I'm not posting the link but Google the topic and the quiz will come up. I thought the questions were a bit dinky but my results were spot on!! It's so funny because I just posted about this lipstick in the "Random" thread yesterday! Post your result and whether you agree with it!
I know there is a beauty related Halloween thread going around, but I want to hear/see everyone's costume ideas, as well as past costumes! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I try to dress up every year. Feel free to ask for suggestions/help here as well! Let's see... Halloween 2011: Circus Ringmaster Spoiler (Highlight to read) That was probably the last store bought costume I wore! Halloween 2012: Princess Daisy Spoiler (Highlight to read) This one was homemade, which is why the dress is more of my take on Daisy. The crown was homemade by the Luigi in the second pic. It was made of actual, very sharp metal hah. People kept calling me Peach... :/ Also, I hate posing for pictures which is why these are all awkward... Halloween 2013 & 2014: Gogo Yubari (Kill Bill Vol. 1) I ended up using this costume twice because I didn't have time to put together another costume last year. Spoiler (Highlight to read) Face and meteor hammer close-ups Face and meteor hammer close-ups And this year I'm going to be Han Solo. I just started working on it today!
Hello! I just started using Poshmark app as an alternative to consignment stores and crossroads - usually those take like, 50-75% of your sales, Poshmark cuts about 20% and their shipping process is pretty easy. Once someone purchases an item (they pay shipping), they send you a prepaid priority shipping label. You just throw that on a box and send it out! Once they person who purchased the items receives it in the mail, they will release your funds and you can transfer it to your bank account or have a live check mailed to you. I wanted to see if there was anyone on Beauty Insider who had experience with the app - and getting the checks or transfers? I've made a few sales but nothing major - I've enjoyed it so far! I have also purchased a few cute items, those have gone through fairly easy If you're interested in checking it out, you can use code: PJWKO to get free shipping on your first order! (-$5!) If you have a closet already - let me know! I'll check it out, always looking to see new styles!
