I am having so much fun with Leah today. Everyone (well the 10% or so who venture into no man's land, AKA off-topic) should have a little more fun. So, let's play a game. Game rules. Compliment the person who responded before you. The person has to have been the last one to comment. That means once someone gives a compliment, a new person has to come along and compliment the LAST commenter. We have to fight the urge to keep complimenting the same person, so everyone gets a turn. You can comment more than once on the thread as long as your comment is giving a compliment only to the last person who commented. To keep the timeline in order. Reply to the thread rather than the person (or your comment will go under theirs rather than over it). *Added rule- If multiple people happen to respond at the same time, you may compliment one or the other, but it will be better if you can find a compliment for both! That way, no man (or woman) gets left behind! If I notice someone get left behind, I will get him/her and leave a note that the person just ahead of me is still next in line. It is not letting me change the posting topic, so this is going to start in our favorite category, Acne! Mods, please move it to off topic once you see it. I've never been unable to change the topic before, so this may be my first "acne" post.
Is anybody else getting slightly annoyed with all the men fragrances at the online checkout? Right now 7 of the 12 sample options are men fragrances!?!? Why? I know it is a free thing, a gift etc. But I am still a little annoyed atm and I figured you would understand.
I am a book lover! I would rather read than do anything else! So just outta curiosity, What are you ladies (and gentleman) reading? What's your favorite genre? I just finished Blood Vivicani by Beckett And I am starting a reread of The song of Ice and Fire (the game of thrones series) My favorite genre by far is horror and Fantasy.
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.
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!
So today, after thinking about it for months I made another Instagram account. One specifically for makeup (looks/product reviews etc). I was curious as to how many other BTers have makeup driven social media platforms & if they're going well. After the Instagram bit I may even "up grade" to making YouTube videos I feel like I'm more than capable I just don't know if people would watch them.. So to you BTers out there with successful Instagram & YouTube accounts - any advice for a rookie? IG account --> @makeup.vixen
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.
Musings of a muse posted about this game on her blog and I thought it would be a fun thing for us to do together! Also because we've just entered a new year, it might help us look at our collections and habits a bit more critically. Please join me, I'd love to see all of your answers! Greed : What’s your most expensive beauty item? Wrath: What item do you have a love/hate relationship with? Gluttony: What brand takes up most of your collection? Sloth: What product do you neglect the most due to laziness? Pride: What product gives you the most confidence? Lust: Which item is top of your beauty wish list? Envy: Which makeup product/look is great on others but not on you?
Girls, i hope this is the right place to talk to you all. I really need advice on this and i'm too scared to ask in other place cause of the treatment that some of the OPs get after they shared the story. Me and my bf have been in a relationship for almost 2 years now, we're both in our mid 20's. I'm a nerdy geeky girls and im really into gaming (mostly online/ps3/3ds). However, i also have a life outside that and ofc i have a huge interest with makeup. On the other hand, my bf is that so called hardcore gamer, basically he;s quite intense when he play games and that sort of makes me avoid playing games cause watching him play is a huge turnoff. He changed his game way too often, so when i'm just about to like playing a particular game he already moved on to a new one. I cant even play or do the things that i like cause he wants to do everything together, and that equals games that he likes. However there's this particular game that he likes to play so much but it really really is not the kind of game that i like. Basically if i tried to play that with him to make him happy, and i didn't really do a good job at it, he'll yell at me and give me a game 101 on how to be better at it, but it's just way too intense and i just cant take it. He's really scary when he play games and gosh you can say that i'm literally scared for my life everytime he ask me to play that particular game cause not only i'm scared of every single aspect of that game, i'm also got traumatized by it because of all the yelling, wall punching and door slamming after i refused to play it with him/ suck at playing it. There's more to this story than what i'm comfortable in sharing but this is quite an abusive relationship and i'm scared to leave. Long story short we had a few huge fight in the past because of this, and i stated to him that i hate this game, and recently we had this ridiculous fight and i almost broke up with him but i didn't cause i thought that we should try to mend things up. But just now he sort of ask me if i can play this game again with him (they are releasing the newer updated version of this game) and i just don't know how to respond to that (we just made up from a huge fight a few days ago and he practically knows that i hate that game but he still ask me about it). How should i tell him that i really don't want to play that game but in a way that won't raise any conflict or trigger his anger? I'm really exhausted from all the fighting and i seriously have no clue why can't he just let it go. Please let me know what you think girls, i'm really sorry for long post and broken grammars, but this is quite a big deal for me and i have a huge trust in you all. thanks
I've been away for too long! But let me show and tell you all what I've been up to. I was the makeup artist for my first student film!

Second test shoot back in December Behind the scenes <3 Potential bride!!! Christmas glam on my sister And the best day ever
A while back I had made a look using the colors of the stray cat that took shelter in my home, I've fed and given her water ever since. This is the second time she's had kittens, unfortunately the last litter didn't survive and from what I know she only had two this time but only one has made it to the barely opening eyes stage. She had them on July 1st. I haven't named the kitty yet, but here's a picture of his(I'm thinking it's a he) cuteness. Taken today. It's been 2 months and 7 days since little neko was born. Here is his updated picture, he posed for it. He posed a lot.
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 everyone, I updated the list of successful traders. Please post here if you have a successful trade with someone. I will also check with the other Topic and keep this list updated weekly! Once a person has 5 successful trades I will bold their name, and no longer keep track of successful trades.

What a depressing two days we have had. First, the untimely death of the great Robin Williams yesterday. And now, today, the beautiful Lauren Bacall. She was not only a gorgeous, talented woman, she was also a devoted wife to Humphrey Bogart and mother to his children. We lost another great one today, and although she will now be reunited with her Bogey, she's going to be missed forever by the ones she left behind. Rest in peace beautiful Betty.
Hey everyone! Today is Bell Let's Talk Day. Bell will donate 5 cents towards mental health awareness, care and access, and programs for every time someone tweets using #BellLetsTalk. This is huge, and I hope everyone tweets at least once today. You could be helping a family or friend gain access to help and end the stigma. Thanks for reading and taking the time to make a difference!
Some people had asked and I wondered myself, so did some digging around.

Now that the weather is getting colder (in most places) more of us are switching to hot tea, coco, etc. So lets share - who is drinking what (from teas, to coffees to even wines, etc), post a pic if you would like ; other wise just specify the name of your beverage and continue to enjoy it My husband woke me up with a hot tea for breakfast. It was Green Mint Tea - now I feel refreshed, awake but still not ready for this day !!!
So with the Transformation thread being resurfaced and all the talk about eating healthy and making home-cooked meals, I thought that we could share some recipes with each other! I know there are a few floating around in lylysa's What's On Your Plate thread but I thought we could drop them in one place I used to love looking up new recipes for meals to make with my (ex) SO and haven't been doing that lately, but I'd really like to get back into cooking. I know quite a few of you are vegetarian/vegan and I'd love to see your recipes as well! I'll start off with a really simple one. This is a super easy salad dressing recipe that I found not too long ago that tastes great and seems pretty healthy. Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons vinegar (white wine, apple cider, red wine, or coconut) salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste *Transformation thread Rouge Only ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB-ROUGE/Transfor mation-Support-Thread-Rouge-Only/td-p/1136805 ) *What's On Your Plate thread ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/What-s-o n-your-plate/m-p/430729/highlight/true#M10719 )
I wanted to start a discussion about VS return policy. I know they allow a max of 7 items to be returned within 90 days WITH receipt and they swipe your ID to keep track of it. I've worked at a giant retailer so I understand trying to keep track of returns without receipts because there are a lot of scammers out there. But why limit the amount of returns with a receipt? You are only going to get back what you paid... I sometimes buy things without trying them on because the line is long, or I change my mind later on, or I buy them as gifts but end up getting them a different gift. Even if you exchange an item, it counts as a return. I hate the limitation because I could potentially be stuck with this item if I've returned 7 items within the last 90 days already. I feel like if you have a receipt, they should allow you to return the item. I really like VS as a store, so I'm really torn with their policy. Sorry for this long rant. Has anyone else experienced this or is frustrated by their policy?
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:
My Lil Sis/BFF is retiring from the military. It's been a bumpy ride for her...big mouth..broken filter. She's been on the fence about having a retirement ceremony due to issues with her chain of command. She's a war vet 2 tours in Iraq 2 tours in Afghanistan...yes she was in combat (woman serve in combat but the military doesn't talk about it) She's a hero to me and I wouldn't miss her retirement for anything in the world. I'm nervous and excited about going (don't really want to go to ALASKA...LOL) and I hate flying. This trip is not in my annual budget, so it will be coming out of my makeup budget. Anyone here from Alaska or been to Alaska... I HATE THE COLD, but living in the NE I have cute winter things. I'm going in the Spring, but I know it will be freezing cold when I get there. The first thing I thought when she said she WAS going to have a retirement ceremony...what makeup should I take. LOL
