Ok so I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. I've also been wanting to start a "random thoughts" thread...but I figured I'd separate the categories so that at least the "beauty" one is on the front page, rather than hidden in off topic. So, have a beauty-related thought but don't think it's worth starting a thread about ? Post it here !   today I got a facial at an extraordinarily nice spa. A real treat. And the results were immediate and truly great. But guys: she pulled out a clarisonic and a foamy cleanser for that first initial cleanse, and I nearly had a heart attack. Great for a lot of people but most of you know how I feel about those things !!!!!! Overall, as I said, it was great and my skin is happy. But sheesh.   _____________   SWATCH REQUEST THREAD HERE:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/The-Swatch-Board/T HE-SWATCH-REQUEST-THREAD/td-p/2223212   (have fun wasting even more time in the...)

What are your beauty pet peeves?   Here are a few of mine   When there's a huge hype around an item/brand or your own hype to get something and you get it and you are just meh.   I recently got a few items that were taking FOREVER to get to my house.  Canada Post was sooo slow at processing... the items were stuck with them and the tracking wasn't moving at all.  I was so excited and couldn't wait for them to be delivered and finally the items just showed up (tracking not updated) and I was like meh... not too impressed with what I got.  I thought I'd love it but no... not really. Swatched and sitting in a drawer somewhere... awww that just kills me lol   Another one (and this is for the Canadian girls). When you see free shipping on your favorite beauty products and then notice below in very small font US ONLY. ugh   So what grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!

Hey gift bag haulers-I know you are out there! If you are like me and feel compelled to purchase every department store and boutique gift bag event, this is the place to share your info, pictures, decisions, reviews and more. I just went for the Bergdorf Goodman Be Beautiful bag and will post my picture down below in a little bit. There are more of these GWP bags coming up and I would love to discuss your favorites, what the gifts bags have or will contain. I even have the idea that we could possible negotiate swaps between the gift bags and potentially go in to share a bag (split the gift and $250 purchase) for example..Lots to discuss!   Dates-please post any info that you get and I will try to update   Neiman Marcus Beauty Event February 11th 2016- gift with purchase, gifts and buy in TBA   Space NK- TBA I believe it is coming up in February   Barney's Gift bag- February/March (there is already a thread for this specific event, so just mentioning it)   Let's gift it up!!!

If you see something awesome in the Sephora sales section, let us know. Sometimes items sell out quickly, so they get buried in other threads. Even if I check multiple times a day (and I sometimes do), you may check at a different time and find stock on items I missed (and vice versa). It seems like stock is often updated around 9am Pacific, but that is not always a given.   If you find something on sale not listed in the sales section, please list that here as well. Share your Easter Eggs with us. Thanks!

Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see without an outside link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Repeats are always welcome, so if you're unsure if something was previously posted, post it. People who may have missed it the first time could see the second posting. Don't forget to list the retailer, so everyone knows where to get your deal. If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

If you are a fan obsessed or just a beauty lover curious about Diptyque, come on over! I thought this would be a fun place to share your thoughts, collections, decorating ideas, questions about the fabulous world of Diptyque. I started out with one candle, the Beverly Hills candle-which is so fabulous-I'll post a picture of it tomorrow-thinking I was crazy to buy a $70 candle. Yes, it's crazy-crazy good! I've since collected 2 or 3 more and purchased a perfume. This week I got my first body care item, the satin body oil. I really love everything from Diptyque. So let's discuss One question I have is how do you get the inside cleaned out so you can use the jars for pretty collections like I see a lot of on social media?

I didn't see a February Haul thread...and it is February.  So, since I'm up early I decided to start one.  Romance is in the air, so hauls for you or others count.  Can't wait to see what you have found and hauled!    
Off-Topic
I've just gotten home from a quick trip to the doctor, and even though it was just to get some meds for a sore throat, I was dreading it for the same reason I always dread going to the doctor: I have to be weighed.   As usual, the number wasn't one I like. I've struggled with losing and accepting my weight for years. It's like there's this voice in the back of my head that's always telling me how fat I am, and how I'll never find love in a body like this. You know, the typical thing.   I'm really bad at turning to friends and family for help in this area, mostly because I feel like they don't understand. (I mean, how could my friend who complains about too many boys wanting to date her understand what it's like to be fat and unlovable? How could my sister in law, who works out  for fun understand my lack of motivation?)   So, I thought, maybe a support thread would be a good idea for all of us, because I know I'm not alone in this. Use this for whatever you feel the need. Whether you're looking for support on your weight loss/gain journey or you just want to spread a little love. Feel free to share you stories, good or bad, and maybe we can all help each other be a little more accepting of ourselves.

Do you ever think about what products are truly important to you, and what you could live without? We're all dirty dragons who hoard sparkly and beloved treasures. If you had to get rid of all of your makeup, except for what you can fit into a single makeup bag (or train-case if you're not feeling daring), what would you keep? Why?   I would love to see photos of how much you guys can jam-pack into a makeup bag. Did you end up packing lighter than you thought or was it hard to choose? I'm not including skin care, because I'm not a monster.    Second Part: Can we stand by our decisions and live with our makeup bag for at least a week? Who can go the longest???    I'm going to sleep on it and start tomorrow

  So, I thought it would be nice to have a place where we can organize everyone's favorite products for their skin tone and find recommendations from other people with similar coloring.    I understand it can be complicated to decide which category you fall into since each is a pretty wide spectrum on their own, and this may not work out well. I would like to put contributors usernames under each category so people can see who they match with visually if they have a hard time deciding.    I will label LE products, and place products with multiple recommendations inside *asterisks*.  Feel free to put undertones as well (warm/cool). I'm not sure how much people care about undertones, but I will include them in the lists if you want.    So what products make you feel beautiful? What products do you think are the most flattering on your skin tone? Can be foundations, blush, eyeshadow, nail polish, hair dye, whatever! I don't want to limit you.  Run wild and free -  tell us what you love.     Make sure to check out the posts by the ladies in your category. They have more information than I could put in the lists!   Fair   Spoiler (Highlight to read)  Contributors: ShannonAlexis (neutral), Tracib1981, jemly (yellow/warm undertone), bloom9159 (neutral

Spoiler (Highlight to read) I have way too much stuff, so I'm starting another TSB. I've participated in many and run two TSBs, all were great experiences and I got to know people better which was fun!     This also helps support my low buy, as I get all the fun of seeing the products find new homes and new stuff to try at the end when it gets back to me.  I know a homeless outreach/shelter that I usually donate at the end, I will think about what to do this time, I haven't decided yet!

Thanks!   Here is the link to GPL's box from last year that was awesome, and if we run into questions or issues I will likely refer to this thread -- I will base this box largely off her process/rules.  (Notably, our box will not be new only though, swatched and gently loved welcome.)   http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/NEW-Items-TSB/ m-p/1881761/highlight/true#M47650   and if you are new to TSBs especially, here are some general good practices (thanks again to these ladies for posting them):   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight ...   (Some of these I am not as picky on, I don't care if an item was tried 1x or 4x for example, but if it's well loved that should be noted (i.e. a dip, etc.).

I get so lost in the longer threads...  Since some of the holiday stuff has gone out of stock (with indications that they will come back in stock) I figured I'd start a thread just for items that come back in stock. UD Spectrum, KVD La Vida Loca, YSL black red, Disney mirrors, D&G Sophia Loren, etc.  I'll post every few days so the thread doesn't disappear but if you see something back in stock please add it here!!!  Then, we won't all need to stock the individual items and threads.

I've been chatting with some fellow coffee addicts over in the Random Thoughts thread but I thought maybe I should make a separate thread.  So let's discuss anything/everything about coffee!   I just got the Peet's Sumatra blend in the k cups and I really like it!  Need to make a note to try their Major Dickinsons Blend since it's so popular.

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 !

Sephora Show & Tell
This season, the fashion world’s runways have been peppered with the drama of beautiful blue eye makeup. Now at Sephora, you can jump on this cool, sapphire trend and add a touch of haute couture to your everyday look. From rocker girl looks to subdued and classic hues, #BlueMakeup adds a sense of depth and glamor to eyes for a dramatic pop.   Here are a few of our favorite azure products for a cool blue look: Feeling tropical? Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow Liner in Turquoise is a warm, matte blue housed in a jumbo pencil that applies smoothly in thin lines, but can also be blended out for use as a shadow. KVD Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Paranoid offers a shock of sparkling electric blue with Kat Von D’s proprietary Color-soaked Concentrate for a creamy, lustrous, and extremely long-wearing finish. Milk Makeup Eye Pigment in Sesh offers a subtler tint to those looking for an elegant shadow that still packs a punch.

I just wanna ask what companies give out free samples when you contact them. I only know of Mario Badescu and L'occitane.   Who doesn't love free samples anyway?

I am a Monkey, and it is the Year of the Monkey. I've been searching for any beauty products that represent the monkey but have not had much luck. Anyone know of any? I saw the thread about creating makeup looks for the zodiac signs, but I am specifically looking for beauty products that print the monkey in the packaging or powders.

So, recently (as in 2 days ago) I packed my liquid like a pro, but I still got pulled over for a complete carryon check (purse and suitcase.) The offenders? Rouge G lipsticks. Apparently too heavy, and have a menacing shape Seriously LOL, UP NOTE - got through after the agent realized the whole automatic mirror thing is brilliant, not threatening. In fact, she loved it so much, she showed everyone in the (small) airport  how genius it really is. Except for the part of triggering a potential international situation. LOL!!!!!   Anyway, what's your hilarious airport security holdup?

Beauty Confessions
I have little plastic, circular makeup rack type thing I bought from Walmart awhile back that I've been using to keep all my makeup in, but I've officially run out of room. I know some of you have vanities, but for those of you that don't, where do you keep your makeup? How do you organize it? I've seen some nice, big organizers online, but they seem way too expensive to me. I like having all my makeup in one place, and I hate the clutter of makeup sprawled across a bathroom counter or thrown in a drawer. Do you guys have any suggestions for a good storage system for an expanding makeup collection?

My absolute favorite thing to do on Instagram is to scroll through makeup looks!! I would love to follow any of you who do that kind of thing! I always can use some inspiration!! I also put up pics so if you are interested my name is destinybobestiny ! Look forward to seeing all the cool looks!

This is the place to plan, get excited, and compare notes on what we think about the Barney's 2016 Love Yourself gift bag/purchase event!   Updates 1/20/15: It looks like this year's bag will be early to mid March, with some presell starting now, and the buy in will be $200.  I haven't confirmed this directly, but this all seems to be the case.   Don't forget at least 2.5% Ebates on Barneys.com if you order the GWP bag online btw (if you need an Ebates referral code PM me!).   Here is last year's spring bag for reference:   and last year's Fall bag with the grooming/men's gift on the right as well (they sometimes have a 'men's' gift option that doesn't include color cosmetics).   Previous years this event has been Feb 10-13th (i.e. Valentine's Day "Love Yourself" time), but last year it was mid-March instead, surprise.  I don't have dates for this year yet or even rumors, but I will update (or you can post below) when we hear things.   In previous years the buy-in for this GWP has been $200-250.   I usually stock up on a few necessary staples to justify the price to myself (Kiehl's Creme de Corps body wash and body scrub I always need and Barney's carries them), and then a few luxury items to try as well, to get to the GWP minimum.   Here are previous threads that discuss and compare this GWP (previous years) that you might find helpful:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Saving-amp-Preparing-for-Barney-s-Mid-Feb-Awesome ...   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Barneys-vs-Space-NK-vs-Bluemercury-early-Septembe ...   So, join me in posting on this thread about our hopes, fears, comparisons to other GWP, and potential purchase lists (best products to buy at Barneys!? recommendations!?) below.   I know in the fall Blue Mercury and Space NK did similar GWP and similar times as the Fall Barney's big GWP bag, but I'm not sure if they do this in the Spring - so I'm not sure if there are major competing GWP to compare this time or not.  Interested in your feedback!
