Hey chicks, So I did one of the funniest things today that I think I've ever done and still can't believe I did it. So me my husband and my little boy went out to eat today and it was a little busy in this place we went to, so we found our seats of course in the back of the restaurant because it was so busy any way we all went up to the salad bar and I guess on the way back I missed our row of seating by one and accidentally sat down with a woman I did not know, as I looked up this woman is just looking at me like "What are you doing"? So I politely said "Oh sorry wrong seat and got up and went to my table where my husband and little boy were wanting to know where I had been. Man that was so embarrassing but funny afterward. Has any one had one these moments? (please say yes)

So I bit the bullet and drove to the nearest store that still had the Sun Safety Kit in stock, which was an hour away. While I was there, I spent quite a long time just browsing and swatching lip colors (trying to find a suitable dupe for Dior's It Pink) and there was a Cast Member who repeatedly approached me. Normally, I don't mind this. They're always so friendly and helpful, but I kept trying to avoid this one. I felt so bad, but her makeup was just terrible and every time she spoke to me, I couldn't help but gawk. I have a very telling face and I can't help it, but my expressions say a thousand words and I didn't want to make her uncomfortable under my stare.. But her lilac eyeshadow was clumped on thick from her bushy eyebrows to her flakey, spidery black lashes. Has anyone else had this experience? Is it just me or is it difficult getting makeup help from someone with terrible makeup? Same with skincare.. I just can't accept help, even if I need it, from someone who has bad skin. Am I too much of a snob? Too judgey? Am I terrible human being? Because it makes me feel horrible, but I can't help it!
Hey girlie girls, I have always loved being on Beauty Talk as we all have but lately it seems like it is better than it ever has been. I actually bring my laundry over by my computer or carry my computer around to different parts of the house while I'm doing things so I don't miss something I think we all have made this a positive, wonderful place and I hope so much we keep it going, I know I mentioned it not too long ago but I just don't want things to change.
OK, here's a fun one! I did a search but didn't see a similar thread within the top 10 pages- if there's one, my apologies! We all have those great "gone but not forgotten" products- whether it was discontinued, replaced, or Sephora just stopped carrying the line. What are your Sephora favorites of yesteryear that you'd love to be able to buy in-store again? I'll have to think about something a bit older, but I'm bummed that I didn't discover Tarina Tarantino before the brand was on its way out! Her eyeliners and eyeshadow palettes are among my favorites.
I got my prom dress in the mail today and I was so excited to try it on. It came from China and we ordered it last Tuesday which was really fast. So I did and it didn't fit. Oh my god. I ordered it in a US size 6 which is what I normally wear in dresses due to my bust being a size 6 and my waist and hips a size 4. It had the measurements also on the websites. It probably is a Chinese size 6. On the order form and tag it says US size 6 and I had my mom measure my bust and it was a little bit less than the bust measurement for the size 6 that was on the website. When I tried the dress on I tried it with a bandeau top and a strapless bra and sucked my gut in. But it still did not fit.
Hello everyone (: I was looking for a thread on here about sales going on, not only on Sephora but on other websites or stores. I personally like to look for good deals on makeup since I am constantly trying to build up my collection. I thought I would make a thread where we could all post what sales we know or have heard about in stores or online, include any great codes for deals or even products with great prices.
Of course since I am starting it, I thought I would post a couple that I have been looking into.
This is a flash deal website that has awesome deals that are constantly changing, hence the flash deals Today until friday, they have some awesome deals on Tarte products, so check it out if interested!
Right now, tarte is having a discovery sale with items like the Maracuja miracle foundation for $21.00 instead of $42. There are also two eyeshadow palettes on there for $26 each.
I love their shadows! They have three nice color selection palettes to choose from online ranging from $16-$19.
One last item that is not on sale but I consider a great deal is the lorac glogetter palette! It is exclusively sold at ulta for $20! I am definitely getting that soon.
I'm looking for a good new show to get into. I always have my classic gilmore girls. I seriously watch it every single day and I've seen every episode like 6 times but it is my favorite show ever. It has just always been my favorite show. Some of my favorites are.. Gilmore Girls Castle Amazing Race Modern Family One Tree Hill (so sad its over) Grey's Anatomy How I Met Your Mother (this is recent.. just started watching on netflix) Big Bang Theory... BAZINGA! and some various others.. What are your favorites?? Especially ones that you LOVE to watch reruns of!
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?
I saw a thread a while back on here about counting your makeup products. It was amazing to see those numbers! While I was reorganzing and going through my makeup since I have moved on to Sephora, and since some things expired and I learned that the hard way lol, I got the silly idea to take a picture of it lol. So if you're bored or just reorganizing your stash, feel free to take a picture and post it! My collection is in the little league range at the moment lol This is my stash after I went through stuff. I don't use my Victoria's Secret kit much anymore since I discovered Sephora, but I still do use the blushes in it and the lip products when I'm at home for the day. The main two palettes I've been using are from Urban Decay and Kat Von D, and I love both! Here's my stash back to organization on my spinny organizer my granny gave me for Christmas. It works well for the moment, but there's no way I can fit my polishes in it lol.
So, it's time to go on an extended no buy. I have more than I could ever enjoy for quite awhile. However, if you have gotten to know me a bit- it's going to be easier said than done! So, this thread is hopefully going to be a support group for me- and anyone else who wants to join me in a summer of no buy. The tricky thing is that I've got about 40% of my toner left and maybe 20% of my daytime moisturizer- and I see pan on my HG concealer. I have to buy the concealer since it's a staple product (and I have used up all of the other concealers that match my skin). I'd like to use up some skincare before repurchasing my daytime moisturizer- but if my skin reacts, I'll revisit the issue. When will the no buy end? I'm not sure, but fall collections will be on counters, if not on the leaves!
I've been watching the news lately and am so saddened by what has happened in Oklahoma. It made me think about "what if I lost everything" (material wise)? One aspect of what i would miss would be my makeup collection. I know it seems super superficial but I would miss it. Is there any way that Sephora could send items to the residents of Newcastle & Moore, Oklahoma who were devastated by the tornado? Shampoo, conditioner, soap, body stuff, makeup? I know it is the least of people's concerns right now and maybe it would be better to do at a later date? I just read a post about people who have a ton of extra Bath & Body Works items (and I know I have a ton of untouched items too)... I wonder if there is someway we could send items to these people? I know that the BT community isnt a place to share super weighty topics but this has been on my heart today.
For me, it'd have to be would have to be eyeliners that require sharpening, especially when the eyeliner itself is sort of soft and creamy. I can never get it back into a nice tip, and it always end up very blunt. I hate, hate, hate sharpening eyeliners, they always clog the sharpener and, let's be honest, so much makeup is wasted that way. Retractable crayon eyeliners are usually what I use, but I hate when there's a color or brand of eyeliner that I want to use, but requires sharpening. The same thing goes for lipsticks or basically any creamy pencil. Ah-noy-ing!
Ladies,how do you handle copycats?! Copycats who ask for your opinion be it makeup,clothes,anything you like or want and just post it online to make it as their Own?Ive had it with these kind of people! i have a "friend" who would always ask the brands i like,or the price for the things i acquire and the next thing i know she had a photo on facebook wearing the same item i got! even her husband does that too with my hubby.how annoying is that?! Im too old to post about this but i just dont know how to handle them anymore.they brag about their stuff, and they are annoying as anyone ive ever known.they even STALK us online!!! (Why,hello there!) they're so obnoxious and i couldnt take it anymore! Even the stuff we have at home they would ask us where we bought it and how much its priced. Seriously, they dont know anything about good manners. I dont ever ask someone how much her things are worth,its too personal for me. And having someone as a friend who copies and disrespects u is just so irritating!
After many days of staying up late with my mom and not finding what I wanted for my prom dress, I finally found it!!!! I was getting really frustrated with the whole ordeal and my younger sister (she's 2 years younger than me) she found what I was looking for in less than 10 minutes. I was gobsmacked, flabbergasted, in awe, you get the picture. It's really pretty, flowy, elegant, sophisticated and classy. It also doesn't have any kind of sparkle which I love because rhinestones are a big trend this prom season and I wanted to go against the trend. I'm not a big fan of super sparkly things. They do catch my eye but i prefer adding them in a tasteful way through small pieces of jewelry. I want to do rose gold jewelry (earrings, bracelets/watch) and clutch with nude platforms. Warm rose golds/bronzes are more flattering on me than regular gold which looks way too yellow against my skin. For make up I was thinking gold eyes and a red lip ( either MAC Ruby Woo or RiRi Woo (if I can get my hands on RiRi))
Since a few of us are on a "no-buy" it might be a good idea to "shop our stashes" again and encourage eachother to behave! Today I dug out my Too Faced "Fun in the Dark" palette for eyeshadow and blush and then also used two new swap items NARS lipstick "Tzigane" and UD shadow pencil "Rehab".
Share any recent used up and trashed products here! Mine is a box of biore nose strips---the box of 6. I've had it for awhile....sometimes I use them religiously every week and go through them like mad and sometimes they go untouched for months.
Okay, this is kinda random but I was just wondering. Like what do others do when they have heard bad news, or having a bad day, or just are sad at the moment? Do you go somewhere? Go for a drive? Want to be alone? Retail therapy? For me, I gotta say it's defiantly retail therapy. It brings my mood up for a while. And sweets... nothing better than stuffing myself with candy or cookies. Haha.
Hey Chicks, I thought it would be fun for everyone if we did this post. I wanted everyone to think about something negative in their live that they gave up or over came no matter how hard it was and had a really good result because of it. I wanted each and everyone of us to have that "Woo Hoo" feeling knowing they had what it took to get them to the result that made them and their life better. Mine would be: 1. The weed(being the negative) I pulled would be caffeine & the good (flower I grew) would be more radiant skin and no more jitters. 2.The weed(being the negative) would be cutting my hours at work. (Even though my job was not negative it was taking up too many hours when I wanted to spend that time with my family. The flower(good part) Getting to spend a lot more time with my family and only working 1 to 2 days a week now.
Hi Ladies, I don't know if anyone else has noticed but I have watched this post grow into an incredible 1121 replies. I think it's an awesome thing to have a post going this long and just to let Sephoramusthave know what a great post she started.
We have the highly addictive "What are you wearing today?" thread- and it got me thinking about how our nails are a sidebar in that conversation. So, what's on your nails today? I just swapped Chanel Rose Insolent for Butter London Come to Bed Red. Nothing on my toes!
I wish so badly I'd known these things would make my life easier! If this helps even just 1 person, that's what I want. (If my post helps you in any way, please let me know!) 1. Change your mascara with the change of seasons. We all know we should change it out every 3 months, but who can remember when that was?! So, I change mine next month as Summer officially arrives. Then, another new tube in September when Fall arrives. That way, there's no doubt just how old that tube really is! 2. Quit picking. (This is where I'm being brutally transparent.) For years, it has hurt my head to see a clogged pore or a slight white center to an upcoming blemish. My solution was to squeeze, poke, prod...whatever I could to get it gone. What I've found is that LEAVING IT ALONE is actually the fastest cure for blemishes and for the overall prevention of them. I spent so much time in the mornings concealing, blending, concealing, blending, applying powder. My battle with cystic acne, I believe, is probably a lot of my fault because I was causing absolute chaos under my skin with all that nonsense. I've not touched my skin for almost 2 months now. How many blemishes do I have? Zero. How much redness do I have? Very little. When is the last time I used concealer? 1 month ago. Case made. 3. Don't reinvent the wheel. Instead of sticking with the formula of foundation that truly did work for me, I've sampled about all of them. YouTuber or blog poster raves about a foundation...I'm on it. I just tossed a BB cream and a CC cream sampler because I felt so compelled to see if this was the stuff that was going to work magic for me, and...wait for it...it didn't. Back to my foundation (Lancome's Dual Finish) formula and shade that get it right every time! I've learned that liquid formulas just don't work well for me, so why waste time, energy, and good skin (experienced a few hiccups of blemishes or just "yuck" skin because of sampler situations) to find that miracle product?! 4. Keep it simple. Instead of having tons of color products rolling around and coming loose from their pans, I have 1 single eye palette (Benefit's World Famous Neutrals in "Everyday") and 3 cheek colors (Tarte's Dollface, Exposed and then Benefit's Dandelion). All I do now is make either my eyes or lips the focal point of my look and use one of those cheek colors to brighten my face. And guess what? It's simple. I'm actually using up product before it expires or gets goopy or whatever. 5. Stick to a memorable routine. I exfoliate twice weekly (Murad's Pomegranate Mask), and I do it every Sunday and Wednesday. While it sets, I wash my BeautyBlender (I have 2, so this gives me a clean one twice a week). Once a month, I also wash my face & eye brushes while also doing my BeautyBlender. If I didn't stick to just those two days for treatments, I'd forget when, then it'd be a week, then a month before I'd realized how time had slipped by without keeping a routine. It truly does make a difference in my skin! Hope I helped!
