Sometimes people ask your advice and you give it, only realizing later that it was wrong/incorrect... but sometimes people ask advice and a little piece of you wants to steer them wrong.. Welcome to Ms.Information! Share the worst advice you can give someone.. bonus points if you can come up with a rational-sounding explanation to back it up! My advice: It is important never to use a promo code unless someone else has already tried it and posted pictures of what you will receive. That way you can make sure it works, and that the item(s) you receive are as advertised. It is sure to save you disappointment! *disclaimer: never ever follow my advice.
Okay ladies and gentlepeople, My shaver has given up on me. Called it quits, headed for the non hairy hills...LOL I'm looking for a waterproof electric shaver for the bikini and underarm areas. I'm a dark skin woman with coarse hair. I use a regular razor for my legs BUT I have found an electric shaver works well on the other areas. I'm looking at this as an investment BUT I don't want to spend a ton of $$$. Anyone have any recs?
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!

@KatieBT - Hey Katie, you sent me 2 PM's and I've been desperately trying to write back to you with a double yes! But none of the PM's I've written to you will go through. 😔 (This has been going on for quite a long while, I think it's my tablet, which is currently my only online access.) I hope you will see this or that someone else can bring it to your attention and let you know I've been trying to reply. Can you contact me at my email address that is on file with my account info? Or just go with all of the info on file for me? I know you need an answer by Wednesday, so I'm praying you will see this. If you can go with that info you could PM me to let me know we are all set, or email me if need be. I just can't write back via PM. Hope you see this and that everything will work out. Hoping to hear from you to confirm every thing is okay. Thanks Katie. 🍀
Happy Friday everyone! Was just wondering about what the most popular Tinted Moisturizers, or BB/CC creams are out there? What are some of your favorites for the days you want something easy and quick, and yet, put-together? My favorite has been the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in St. Moritz. I have normal-dry skin, medium, warm skintone and love the warm tones that this TM has. I feel it has pretty good coverage for a TM and does not dry out my skin. It is quite a thick consistency though, as most of you may already know. Please share your favorites along with your skintype and tone. Also, what do you esp like about the product? Have a lovely long weekend everyone!
So I had some makeup (and tea) boxes laying around and wanted to use them but without all the pictures all over them, so naturally GLITTER! Coated them in Modge Podge and Glitter and now I can use them for all sorts of things and they look pretty!! I also like to take old compacts, clean them out, then pour old nail polish (applies streaky, clumps, etc) into it so it dries nice and flat, to make play pretend makeup for kids. But I have no pictures of any of those right now. As I was doing this I realized there is no way that I am the only one to re-use, re-purpose, and craft old makeup boxes, compacts, perfume bottles etc....So I wanted to start a thread where we could all share our beauty crafting ideas!! So please ladies, show me your crafts!
So, recently I've made he decision to go cruelty free. I had made another thread asking about alternatives. However, I was also wondering for those of you who are already buying cruelty free; do you still buy from companies like Urban Decay and Tarte - who don't test on animals themselves, but their parent company does? I know that UD is owned by Estee Lauder and Tarte by Kose (At least from what I've read) who is definitely not cruelty free. Is that a deal breaker for you or do you still buy from these companies? I just would like to know how people feel about that and kind of get more insight on things.
Does anybody know if there are any Kate Spade Printable Coupons? And I already know about the signing up via email and receiving 15% off. But I am talking about any other ones that people are aware of.
Black Whiskey hit 20,000 hearts! Stop in and leave a heart or message for the one who always wows us with her gorgeous and artistic looks! I know I can always count on her for some makeup inspiration and to push myself to try different applications. Thanks BW, this heart party is for you (and Luna!)
I will be going into Calgary next weekend (long weekend for Canadians) and it is my first time ever so I have never been before. I was just wondering if shopping there at Sephora and clothing stores is it cheaper there? Or is it more expensive? I live in Manitoba so taxes here are different than Alberta of 5%. Manitoba is 5% GST and 8% PST. Like I know they have a Sephora there along with Kate Spade which I also love...just wondering if it's more expensive there to shop? Anyone have an idea or is from Calgary and can provide me with some insight? I would really appreciate it.
Please tell me I'm not alone....I was grabbing my brush case, and I didn't realize the case wasn't buttoned closed (top half comes off (think Sigma case)). Right before my eyes, I saw 22 of my brushes fall to the dirty kitchen floor!!!!! What are your makeup-related tragedies?? I might not read them right away....I need time to mourn Edit: I did wash my brushes shortly thereafter. I think they're stunned by the trauma.
in the past day, I've received emails for some pretty good sweepstakes and thought of starting this thread. So here is a place we can share these types of promotional sweepstakes, prizes and giveaways with each other and hopefully, one of us will win now and again! so share BT-approved modified links, sweepstakes info and any results here. Fingers crossed one of us wins some great prizes!
So I wanted to keep this on the down-low, I know I've only told one person, and thank you for keeping it a secret too. I didn't really want to post anything but I know you guys have been with me through thick and thin, you guys showed amazing support when I was going through Neko's death, and many other situations I've been in. Tomorrow my mom is being admitted into surgery, it's been 10 years or so since she got her pacemaker and lately she had been going to a lot of doctor's appointments but they always said she was fine, last week they told her she needed to go immediately to have I suppose a battery replacement? because it was hiccuping or something of the sort. When my mom started voicing to me that she wasn't feeling well, that she felt her heart was going to stop, that was last year when I was still working. Aside from my depression that was one major reason why I decided to quit my job, I couldn't handle not being there for her, and I couldn't if I worked because I'd get home and just sleep and wake up at 5 am. I know i've expressed many problems happening with my mom and how we clash A LOT, but in the end she is still my mom and I love her so so much and it scares me that she's going in tomorrow, it scares me so much. I've been reassured by my friends who used to live near me and one that still does that she'll be okay but I still have that worry. I'm trying not to make it so much that I start thinking so negative, but yeah. It's tomorrow and it hit me hard. I placed an order for Dior Dolce Vita perfume I believe, for her, that should be arriving tomorrow, but I want to save that for mother's day. I'm thinking flowers, but that seems cliche too? I don't know? Maybe a poem. I've been trying to get back to everyone's comments but sometimes unexpected events happen around my home where I can't and then I forget, but thanks for the recent comments, especially the rainbow cheek ones!
I don't need to explain anything, just let it be known, today I needed to vent to people who wouldn't judge me and ask me questions. I got this. But tonight I just really want to vent. Thank you all. I'm OK. But life is hard sometimes...
With Mother's Day around the corner, wouldn't it be nice to pamper her with something special? What would your mom want for Mother's Day to make her feel more beautiful? My mom is not into makeup so I'm thinking I may take her to the salon for a new hairstyle.
I was doing a little spring cleaning and came across two beauty books that I forgot I even had. Now that I have found a love for high quality makeup and skincare, I appreciate my books dearly. The ones I have are Bobbi Brown, Living Beauty & Kate Somerville Complexion Perfection! I especially like Kate's book. Any other recommendations?
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!
Can anyone recommend a great gold paint color? I am driving myself crazy with choosing the right one for my dining room. This has been a project long in the works — a ton of sanding, paint removal, prepping, priming — and now we're in the final stretch and only have to paint the final color. Only problem is, I can't find the right color. I don't want anything too yellow, too green, too brown, or too dark. I thought I'd found one, but it's reading too yellow on my walls. Can anyone help out? Pleeeeezzzzz? Thanks in advance!
Hi, Has anybody ever had any luck getting a response from this company? I placed an order on Natashadenona.com a few days ago. About 5 min later, I noticed that if you swatch the products or open them at all they will not allow a return. So I immediately contacted them to cancel my order. No response. I emailed them again the following morning. No response. However, I did get a notice that my order had shipped. Ugh. I tried to find a phone number there doesn't seem to be one I guess the best thing to do is refuse the package when it comes. I just hope I'm home. For the price of the items, you would think they could invest in better cust svc. Since I have never used or swatched the products before I think I'll stick to orders from beautylish. Their cust svc/return policy is top notch!
I was just wondering if any of you ladies watch RPDR. I've seen some of you talk about it before and share gifs so I figured I'd start a thread so we could throw some t and some shade and talk about the show.
We BTers are a busy bunch, and I don't know about anyone else, but I always appreciate a local's perspective on things to do, see and eat wherever I'm headed. Just booked a last minute long weekend (Thursday to Sunday) to Portland, Oregon. We'll have a car, so we were thinking about exploring beyond the Portland city limits... maybe do some breweries or wineries. Anybody with Portland (and surrounding area) recommendations? Specifically looking for where to stay in Portland (walkable, local favorites) and we love food, so any recommendations of places to eat would be most welcome!
