Products you regret not buying
What are some products you regret NOT buying? For me, it's the Estee Lauder Heat Wave Illuminating Powder. I'm so mad because it's so pretty! I walked past it in stores so many times and now it's taunting me because a YouTuber mentioned it.

Sports and beauty convo thread
I didn't see a thread around about this so redirect me if one exists!   I thought it'd be neat to have a discussion thread for members who play sports. I play ice hockey and I find that I needed to adjust my beauty regiment as a result of my beloved sport. Different masks, different hair care, etc from all the sweat and (surprisingly) dirt involved with playing. Note, I don't actually wear makeup when I play haha although I've seen girls that do!    One issue I am having at the moment is finding a top coat that will protect my polish through a game. I'm on the ice 2-5 days a week and I'd really like to only have to redo my nails twice a week. Anyone have any suggestions? Right now I'm using Seche Vite (which I love) but I want to see if there's anything out there that's a little more durable.    Tell me about your sport and the beauty challenges that come along with it!!

I have so much unused make-up? How do I get rid of it?
Long story short: Sadly, thanks to nursing school, my make-up loving days seem to be coming to an end. I no longer have the time (ugh, up at 5:30 am every morning) or money :/   Since I'm going weeks on end without even wearing any, I've decided to shrink my stash and get rid of the stuff I know I'll never use. How should I go about doing this? It would be nice to make a little money off it but maybe I should just donate it? Any other ideas?

What Musical Instrument Do You Play?
So we all like makeup, but there are some of us out there who also do other things as well, including playing instruments. I am curious and therefore, I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone on here plays a instrument out there. If so, come and share with us and tell us why you choose that instrument.   1.  Mandolin - Not to be confused with an orange (seriously, I get it a lot of that from people). It is also not a mini guitar (yes, that too). For those who don't know, a mandolin is a cross between a fiddle/violin and guitar. I am actually just beginning to learn it but the reason why I learned it is because I wanted to try something similar to a guitar but different. There are too many people who play guitar and therefore, I wanted to play something cool that wasn't a very well known instrument; something unique. I ended up with the mandolin. Although I am just beginning to learn it, I am learning it rather quickly (all thanks to my violin background). The only thing I am seeming to have trouble on is the strumming, which I will get used to once I practice some more. So far, it is enjoyable and I can already play Hot Cross Buns on it (day 1). I am also able to tell which note is off and which one is dead on. As for the type of mandolin I own, it is a Gibson A-9.   2.  Violin - I've actually been playing it for seven years and therefore, I am pretty advanced on it. This instrument had helped me to learn the mandolin. To be honest, I really did not want to learn violin and was sorta forced into it but I grew to love it as I played it more. Perhaps it was because it challenged my brain a lot more than the other instruments would have, due to the fact you are doing multiple things at once (bowing and fingering).   What about you? What instruments do you know how to play?

Color IQ
I always thought I did an okay job matching my foundation shades- weather in a drugstore or in a sephora. I would always swatch on my jawline and pick which one I thought matched the best.   Last week, for the first time, I had the Color IQ done at a Sephora near me and holy crap I will never ever try to match my foundation on my own again. The Color IQ match really did make a huuuge difference. My face looked flawless after the right color and foundation was applied.    Once my lovely tan fades (unfortunately) I will be back (albeit paler) to get my new color IQ!

Fall is Coming!! What Are Your Big Changes You make with Skin Care and Makeup??
Happy September!  As we transition from Summer to Fall, ,what are the things you change about your makeup and skin care routines??   For me:  Usually around October my skin becomes a bit drier, so I change to more moisturizing products. They still must be Oil-free. I also use my Clinique CC Cream during the winter, as it gives me a dewy look that is too oily for Summer.   Makeup: I like the darker nail polish colors, like Black, coppers and metallics. Eyeshadows go darker, more smokey eyes and grey shadows. Lips stay about the same, although I generally wear more neutrals than bright pinks in the fall and winter So....let's share!

What's on your plate?
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?

The Canadian Peeps!
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!

Overused Words/Phrases
Are there any phrases and/or words that you think are overused and are starting to bug the heck out of you? The one that is getting on my nerves the most is "curated". For example, "this makeup line was curated by our beauty editor." I just feel it's so over the top and pompous. Also, the word "sweet" instead of "cool". I actually heard a woman who had to be at least 75 years old using it. I laughed so hard I almost fell over.

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Why do you buy high end products?
This thought popped into my head this morning and I asked myself, "why do  i buy high end products?" I buy a few high end products because there's more options, finishes, and shades to choose from.    Do you shop high end because of the different shades and options? or is it because you like brand name products?

Your Views on... ULTA
I dislike the customer service and coupon restrictions. Just tried a coupon that gives NEARLY everything off 20% (even UD) and it didn't work. I wanted the Marc Jacob Daisy So Fresh purse spray. (Not at Sephora)  Another horror was me driving to one 30 minutes away and kept checking up on the limited edition OPI polishes that were out of stock. They offered to get the items and transfer them to the store. IT TOOK A F****ING MONTH. Of course I got it for free because I was b****ing and whining and probably attempted to cause a scene. I complained about the driving and their incompetence.  God, what a nightmare. I love you Sephora.

Travel products and shopping in Italy!
I'm taking a trip to Italy with a friend and I had a couple of things I wanted to ask about. First, any suggestions about shopping for beauty products?? Definitely Italian brands, but also other brands that aren't easily found in the U.S. (ex: Inglot, Yves Rocher are already on my list)...and I'm definitely up for trying low and high end brands! Also, any specific stores to check out? And if so, what types of products do they carry? For example, I've been trying to do some research on drugstore equivalents there, b/c I don't think it works the same way, having Walgreens/CVS type stores where they sell everything from candy and medicine to makeup and school supplies. Does one just go to the grocery store to find low end makeup? Are there specific chains you'd recommend? I feel like I should know this, I've been to Europe multiple times...just never thought to do any cosmetics shopping! :-/   Also: My friend who's coming with me has a b-day coming up, so her gift is going to be Italy/travel themed! (complete with red, white and green tissue/gift wrap, and a box of pasta ) And part of the gift is a cosmetics bag full of travel-sized toiletries. So far, I've put in shampoo, conditioner, face wash, face towelettes, body wash. Any suggestions for additional products? I can squeeze in one or two more minis in there, and I feel like I'm forgetting some other beauty essentials.... (well, there's a razor, but um..I don't feel comfortable gifting that, lol) I'm also getting her an NYX Love in Florence eye shadow palette, but I don't want to include any other makeup beyond that -- she's not much of a makeup wearer. Suggestions? Ideas?    Grazie!
