I know similar posts have gone around....but when do you know your stash of make up/ skin care/ body care is a bit....ummmm....well-stocked? I know mine is because my sister stayed with us for a weekend and went to grab a towel out of the linen closet and says "geeze...you must be a philosophy consultant or something!" Haha...made me laugh, but I went through my stash and handed her a bunch of stuff to try...now she's in love with philosophy too!
I have a US post box..But I live in Canada. My dilemma is My CAD cart is 134, my USA cart is 110. If I order it to the USA, I save 24 bucks, and I get my package like..at least a week faster. And good chance I won't pay duty. If I order to CAD, I get charged 24 more, it takes a week or two longer to get my package, and may get charge duty. US is kind of a hassle.. But is it worth it?? Huge First World Problem, WWYD?

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!
Hi ladies and gents, In keeping with the haul tradition, I thought I'd go ahead and start one for March! I can't WAIT to see all your fun and colorful goodies for the upcoming Spring season . This post is welcome to all, and as lilahtov said, a haul is a haul no matter how small .
So I go through phases with different culture and now I'm on a Korean phase, Korean music, Korean TV show, Korean skincare, and Korean food. I saw ppl eating Bindaetteok on a show and really really want to make it. Does anyone have a good recipe for that? Also, does anyone have any good recipe for any Korean food aside from Kimchi fried rice (the one dish I made/liked so far).
I'm not sure about this but I think my crush likes me! He finally came back to school after 3 weeks! He's messaged me several times on Facebook this past week (without me messaging him first) as well. The day he came back I was wearing a mix of MAC Heroine and Punk Couture on my lips and he told me he liked it a lot, it was really bold and daring (in his eyes) and not a lot of girls can rock purple lips. I also caught him staring at me again. I noticed every time I did, his ears would turn red and he would look away really fast. I don't really talk to anyone in our Ceramics class since I am very shy unless they ask me for help or if they need something. We hung out once outside of class and got to know each other a little bit. What do you ladies think?
Guess What ? I am ALMOST a VIP ROGUE !!!!!!! ~ ONLY 127 Points to go!!!!! lol Anyone else have any happy, exciting, but personal excitement that is more than likley pointless to anyone else on our SEPHORA BOARDS !!!!
The lovely MYchoi was fabulous enough to offer to ship me some delicious treats from California to Pennsylvania. She knows I LOVE Asian food but have no Asian markets near my homestead. Here are some of the wonderful things she included: ^Large flat rate box JAM-PACKED with goodies! ^Seaweed. ^Melon flavored gummies (one of my favorites!) and melon flavored hard candies. ^Green tea, panda, and strawberry pocky. I busted into the green tea pocky IMMEDIATELY! ^Various crackers/biscuits/pies. ^Bae, various mochi, and green tea swiss rolls (another fave). ^Strawberry Calpico, aloe drink, and melon yogurt drink. Do any of you have any favorite Asian foods, or foods from your culture or other cultures that you love?
So I thought I was alone in this, but apparently many of you did too! We know we're not supposed to pick. We know it can lead to scars and infections. We know it hurts. But we can't help it. I'm starting this thread so that anyone who suffers with picking can have a safe space and judgement-free zone. Please feel free to share whatever you need. Be warned: some things written here may seem "gross." Please don't judge or tell us how gross they are. We got that already, and that's not the point of this thread. xoxo, Lauren
So Glam Glow is having a sale where it's items are 20% with code "GLAM20" i just thought i share...to me it's not worth it because with the shipping i'm only saving 8 bucks. just visit their site and click on products.
I'd rather buy La Mer than spend my $$ going out tonight :x Normally my beauty hauls don't have much La Mer products in there thats why I decided to post this one because I am very excited to add to my La Mer collection!! Also SO excited to play around with the Naked 3 palette!!
Hello everyone! My name is Julie and this is my first post. I'm a Rouge level and I decided for Lent that I will not only give up chocolate, but also not do any Sephora, Ulta, Sally Beauty and Merle Norman shopping for the Lenten season. We'll see how it goes and I will probably need support from all of you. I would then like to know what you are giving up for Lent.
UPDATE!!! Please check if the person you are posting about already has status. Once they have that I no longer add them up. This will help keep the thread clearer, and to be honest make this job easier for me.

hey.... do you girls ever lose someone you love (not in death) someone you REALLY REALLY loved, that you thought could be a husband a father, and you never felt the same about anyone else? or what if a guy chose another beautiful, sporty girl that has his religion. I don't mean to be selfish or self-pitying im just going through a hard time right now. and to cope with this sadness I have a problem, binge eating. I ate a whole **bleep** packet of oreo's A WHOLE PACKAGE, along with pizza, chips, m&m's. yay now im a fat depressed azz. do any of you know how to deal with a broken heart? thanks,BTers.
Wow, hard to believe it's been 3 days or more, lost count. But my schedule has been packed! Anyways..new things have been happening to me. I got my work schedule back (yay!) I might be meeting with a foreign person, well more of being a conversation partner (exciting!). We might be moving into our new place this week or next week. Most important is that I'm experimenting with new color of makeup...so much that my local Sephora knows that I come in all the time with purple or turquoise eyeliner, funny huh? Also I might be going back to school soon. (whoo-hoo!) Ah, it's been great! I like this saying for Sephora..I wanted to post it for a long time
It's that time again! So February was better than January but what will March bring? Big congratulations to the following BT members who have joined ipsy they are Spacesuit Highly doubtful that we would get a sneak peek today but should have one starting Monday! 1st sneak peak Confirmed bareminerals marvelous movie lip gloss and Bareminerals marvelous moxie lipstick 2nd sneak peek 3rd sneak peek 4th sneak peek
TRADE THREAD #3 Overall trades have gone very well and many cosmetic items have found themselves new homes! However, there have been some trades that have not gone as well, so this trade post has been revised – please read it carefully! GUIDELINES Listing Your Items Please list what you have available, the condition, add a photo (if you have a lot, consider posting them under "spoiler" - the little face icon with a hand over its eyes - so tons of images don't flood the page for people scrolling) , and what you are interested in for trade. You may wish to list your location, such as the U.S. When something you have to offer is no longer available, please go back and edit your post to keep the listings more accurate! Because a number of fake items have been sent in trades, it is strongly advised you provide photos of your higher-end items, including the labeling (you may be asked for it anyway) and list WHERE you purchased the item from. Fakes are readily available from less reputable sellers and can contain toxins! It is important to everyone to know where their cosmetics come from. Acquiring Items Please use discretion with whom you enter into trades with. There is a summarized list of trusted traders here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/LIST-of- the-Successful-Traders-or-TB/td-p/1071289 Protect yourself in your trades, ask questions (such as where an item was purchased), ask for additional photos (to show level of usage and/or labeling to prove authenticity). If you don’t feel 100% comfortable doing a trade because someone is new, you can request they send their items first. Communication Please consider using the Private Messages system on Beauty Talk to help ensure someone knows you are trying to contact them. You can set up to receive an email when you get a PM in your preferences. You can also access your messages by looking under your profile on the left side of the main Beauty Talk page under your avatar and clicking on the envelope. Communication is key! Even if there is a mail delay to the giant blizzard or ice storm of 2014, not being able to get in touch with the person you are trading with is very frustrating! If you are on either side of a trade, please make sure you are able to stay in touch with the other person through the end of the trade. If you will be unable to communicate for a period of time, try to let them know that. Delivery Having tracking and insurance on shipments goes a long way to figuring out where an item might be. The USPS even puts anticipated delivery dates and the tracking numbers right on the receipts now! SUCCESSFUL TRADE EXPERIENCES? Consider providing your feedback on successful trades on this thread here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387 Please also see the previous trade thread: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Product- Trade-Thread-01-2014-TWO/m-p/1021537 Happy trading!
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.
Hey guys! I got the new lip lover sample in the mail and I bought one too. Below are the swatches. Top one is #333 Rose Des Nymphes, bottom was the sample #355 Framboise Etoile. Both really pretty on, very creamy great pigment and not sticky. I like them. they are perfect for spring!
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!
