Do you mean 
I was just laying here surfing the web and I started thinking about cartoon characters (Random I know). I have alot I really like; Rugrats, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Rocco's Modern Life. But my favorite characters are from Ahh Real Monsters! Oblina looks  like a black and white candycane with  red lipstick, Ickus is just adorable with those big ears, I LOVE The Gromble because he was a male character wearing awesome red heels, and Krumm.....well being able to hold your eyes seems like a pretty cool thing to be able to do. These shows were all popular when my kids were young so that probably has alot to do with my fondness of them......great memories.  Who is/are your favorite characters(s) or what's your favorite cartoon and why?

I loved Trent! He was definitely one of my favorite characters. I need to ask for that box set! Maybe I'll ask Santa for it for this Christmas ;)  see post

Self-Tanning -- do you do it year round?
Hi! I recently tried my first self tanner and I FELL HEAD OVER HEELS with my results. I tried the Vita Liberata that was 100pt perk. My husband really liked it too. He said it was a nice touch of color on my skin and he liked the way it looked. Now let me just say that my husband rarely ever notices let alone compliments anything i do that relates to makeup--etc. But when he complimented my tan, it just made even more obsessed. I am wondering if there are a lot of you that maintain self tanning? I want to but i keep thinking about the gamillion foundations and powders that matched my naturally light skin and the thought of having to buy darker foundations and sounds like a huge fiasco i don't want to undertake. Anybody here year long self tanners? How do you prolong a tan and keep it from fading quickly. Which products do you use?

Drama at the workplace
So, I'm a single lady but recently I experienced heaven when my eyesight came across the most handsome guy I've seen that looks like he could be Lee Pace brother. Sigh. So cute. Anyway. We're not in the same department but I recently found out his name through a friend. She knows about it, oh and she has come to be one of my best work friends. So the drama comes in where there's a new girl that is just starting with us, I'm still new but as you all know, I've already had a month or so of experience and she's fresh out of training. Anyway I made the mistake of telling her about him and now she's obsessed. I'm sure I'm just being paranoid but since I don't have the confidence most women have, I feel like somehow she could woo him. And not to have a high ego but I am pretty, I am nice, etc but I still worry. Anyways, didn't necessarily write this for advice, just to vent it out. Not many people are happy with her behavior and she's new.. so that kind of sucks for her.

Sorry for your distress, BW. Workplace stress sucks. *hugs* (And Lee Pace is SO dreamy)  see post

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)

Update! I just got my BB today : ) I'm excited to use it!! see post
is it too early for this ? nahhh.   this month i have two lipsticks that have caught my heart: NARS audacious lipstick, dominique. my "new nude" if you will. BESAME lipstick, noir red. the color of dried blood. dream come true. i've also fallen in love with a couple of eye products:  BOBBI BROWN cream eyeshadow sticks. these are my favorite eyeshadow sticks i've tried. absolute convert.  BOBBI BROWN long wear eyeliner. this stuff is good.  i got both of those product in the bobbi brown promo and i'm so happy i went for it because, as i said, i'm a convert !!   i went into a weird shop last week and found a brand of incense i haven't seen in literally a decade. so i have managed to make my place smell as it did a decade ago, which is both lovely and an interesting trip down nostalgia lane.    OH and another lip product: SMITH'S (rosebud perfume co.) rose & mandarin lip balm (i got the one in the tube, not the tin). now, usually i'm against petroleum products on my face but i do make an exception for on my lips for when i'm sleeping. just locks in the moisture which is what i need. this "flavor" is just so dang good. mandarin and rose is not necessarily a combo you'd think of being particularly enticing, but they're two of my favorite scents ! so i had to give it a go. and i'm so glad i did. def check it out !! edited to add: BUMBLE & BUMBLE hairdresser's invisible oil--the whole range of products. i really really love the shampoo and conditioner. received this as the 500 pt perk and fully intend to get full size. leaves my hair clean and light, but not over stripped (highly recommend this line for color treated hair, as well as hair that tends to frizz !!) what else ? i'll add more as i think of it. how about you guys ? anything particular pull at your heartstrings this month ?

Now that summer is fast approaching, what do you change about your skincare/makeup routine?
Hello lovelies,   I'm curious about this. I do change my skincare and makeup routines.   I do way less face oils in the summer since my skin gets super oily when it's hot. So maybe Josie Maran Aragan Oil a few times a week in the evening instead of every night the rest of the year.   I also depend way more on on BB cream (I love Maybelline Dream Finish BB Cream) and my NARS Concealer Stick for daily coverage. I also don't opt so much for a full face of makeup during the work week. I definitely still do mascara, liner, blush, but I do more lip glosses than lipsticks. But I still love my bright lip colors. If I do eye shadow, it's maybe one neutral color.   Of course, if I'm going out in the evening, it's full everything!   What about you?

Put it in the exact phrase you're looking for, look based on posts, not topics, and then sort the results by date (most recent should be on top). Like I said, it doesn't always work, and if someone lists Hour Glass Ambient Lighting Palette instead of Hourglass, or they happen to spell palette wrong, it may not come up.

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?

Totally random...but what are the best white t-shirts out there
A Sephora question?  Not really.  But given my daily reality of how can I seriously get ready in under 5 minutes I keep facing the reality of my awful white t-shirt selection.  Too sheer, too fitted (works with some bottoms but not others), too blah... So since there is this off topic thread and a number of very creative and resourceful BT-ers...I figured I would ask...what white t-shirts (that are still available!) do you love?

Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my  actual  impression of it (at least at first )   it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too.   so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product  for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product.   right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off.   i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer.   how about you ?   __________ post trial edit about the products above: i had to skip on the REN because the shea butter in it was too heavy for my skin. and i suppose buying something simply for the smell isn't the best use of my moola the VICHY aqualia thermal serum, however, is in my permanent arsenal. i've already repurchased once since starting this thread, and have turned a few people on to it too !

Yeah I was really disappointed as it's very well reviewed. Application aside, the finish wasn't very good either.  It's great that it works for others though! see post

So in about 3 weeks I'll be going out to Vancouver! I've never been & it will be the longest I'v travelled in a while. I'd like to know what some of your travel essentials are. I'll be doing out-doors-ee activities while I'm up in Whistler, & then we'll go back down to the city for the remainder of the trip. Not only would product recommendations would help, but if you've been to Vancouver it would help if you have any recommendations of must-see, dos, & eats!  I've also heard that if you're flying & have eyeshadow it's best to put paper towel over them so they don't shatter...

Why I can't use coconut oil/Who's pet stops them from using a product?
I recently purchased coconut oil to use as a beauty product. Today I used it on my legs as a moisturizer. I LOVED it. Unfortunately my doggie does too.

Wow I LOVE it - and it's unique! Which is a great justification :).  I agree about hoping for not too much drag... but really lovely and stylish and classy. see post
Anyone else tired of the same posts over and over again?
I have replied to so many threads about sensitive acne prone skin and the like. I just wish people would search these boards before starting a new thread for a concern that already exists multiple times. I love being a part of the community and helping where I can but search is your friend everyone! *steps off soapbox*

this thread is a repeat too. :) see post
I burnt my neck with a curling wand and it's gonna leave a big scar
For the past seven or so years I've curled my hair using a straight iron. I had my hair cut about about two months ago and figured I should try and baby those freshly cut NON SPLIT ends along for as long as possible. I bought a schmancy curling wand for when I wanted to do wavy hair because I realized I wouldn't have to drag the ends of my hair through searing heat! Yay! I'm so smart! Look at me! Look at -- oooowwww Oh My God what have I done?    So somehow while curling I laid the top of the iron against my neck and got an awful burn. That was about 1.5 weeks ago. It's still scabbing over and healing and I still have to wear scarves, hoodies pulled tight around my neck and bandages in public.    The outer parts of the wound are already scarring. I've had a lot of surgery and, TBH, normally I don't care about scarring. But this looks like a giant hickey in the exact place you'd expect to find a giant hickey.    So TL;DR best recommendations on how to get a scar to fade/heal? How to speed up the healing of the burn wound? (I have a prescription antibiotic similar to Neosporin I've been using - should I do anything else?) And in the worst case scenario, best makeup to hide a new, dark pink/red scar. sorry for the novel!

Oh, ouch. That sucks. I did that with my Sedu Revolution Clipless Barrel Curling Iron back in 2012, so I know your pain. I seared a good 1.5-inch long oval on my forearm... see post
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.   ETA:   Where to shop!   So I do have a list/link somewhere with brands and where they are found.  I'll try and dig it out and if you want it pm me   For those who don't know...   Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have a wonderful loyalty program and your points are worth "cash" in store.   The Bay is bringing in more brands... just recently Burberry. I'm thinking we will see more good things come.  They also have a VIP program... I am not too sure how it all works but it applies to all purchases from the store and you get a 20$ off 100$ makeup purchase coupon almost every month... Like who wouldn't want that!  Hello MAC!   Beautylish ships to Canada and they are FAST!  Order processed and shipped within the hour and arrives the next day!   Now that we have Nordies in Canada you might be able to call a counter and get items shipped to you.  Some things you can get shipped from the site.   Apparently Saks is coming.  I believe The Bay is the one who will be owning them and bring them in.   If you get a good SA at Holts you can also get stuff shipped to you.   Sorry been MIA from this board a long time.
