Outstanding October Hauls!!
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

Heartbreaking article...felt the need to post
I just stumbled on the most heartbreaking article entitled "An Ugly Woman's Honest and Painful Response to Being Mistreated Goes Viral". The photo that accompanied it spoke very strongly to me.     The article links to the original post by a Reddit user describing what should have been a great night out with friends that I've included in the spoiler. These are not my words, but I totally understand how this woman feels. All of us at one time or another have had these feelings or encounters like this. As a relative newcomer to this beauty board I've experienced great interactions with other BT community members and seen mostly positive interactions. I'm posting this with the hope that in reading this individuals will be encouraged to pay it forward or step out of their comfort zone in regards to their own beauty or perception of beauty. Stop someone on the street and say something nice, volunteer at a women's shelter or donate to a cause that helps/empowers women. Share your own stories within this thread and find support. This article really moved me and I just felt compelled to share it.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) "Warning: wall of text ahead I am an ugly woman. Objectively, I really am. Please don't argue with me on this one, Reddit. I am not overweight, actually in better shape than most women my age, I dress well, I am great with makeup. But last weekend the world just had to remind me that despite all this, people will go out of their way to kick me. I don't often go clubbing, but Saturday night was a special occasion. A friend was celebrating her 21st, and it was also the weekend after a long week of brutal exams. It felt like a good time to blow off some steam. Because I don't often go clubbing, I really tried this night to look nice. There was an outfit that I had bought a long time ago, but that I'd never worn because it was a little sexier than what I usually wear. A close friend had picked it out for me when we were shopping, and, in that "you go girl" kind of way had urged me to buy it. I did my makeup painstakingly, straightened my hair which always takes forever because my hair is huge, put on that too-sexy-for-me outfit. And when I looked in the mirror I was even surprised at myself. "Wow, is that me? I actually look...nice!" I showed my friends. They all said I looked great. And they MEANT it too. Like, genuine happy encouragement. I could tell they were sincere and it made me feel so good, like for once I wasn't just masquerading as an attractive girl with fancy makeup and clothes, but that I WAS the attractive girl. I hadn't felt so attractive in ages, Reddit. When we got to the club, we got a nasty surprise. We had been told that tonight there was no cover charge for girls, and so none of us had brought much cash on our person. Well, our info was wrong. They did indeed ask for a cover. Only one of us 6 girls had cash, and she only had enough to cover two people. When we got to the door and found this out, a group of guys behind us volunteered to help us out. They each forked over a couple of bucks to cover my friends, but not one of them offered to cover me. One by one my friends were let in and they waited on the other side of the door until everyone got through. The guys were doing everything to avoid eye contact with me. They were looking at the ground, the street, pretending to look through their wallets for cash to cover one more girl. It was so painfully obvious that I felt like just going home. Luckily, my friend with the extra cash covered me so I was allowed in. Well, once we were inside I thought I could just forget about that incident. I had dressed up and come out, to have a good time and relax. So for a while I danced with my friends. It wasn't long before other guys started dancing with us. We kind of paired off slowly, there was a guy whose two buddies had started dancing with other girls and he was left alone. At that point I too had lost track of my friends and was alone. He started dancing with me, but the whole time he seemed really distracted. Not once did he really look at my face, he was kinda looking around the club the whole time, like he was browsing the scene for another, more attractive girl he could bounce to. In less than 10 minutes, he had seen one. He peaced out without a word, and I saw him dancing a few minutes later with a very attractive brunette. The way he acted with her was just SO different than when he had danced with me. He was face to face with her, smiling, dancing enthusiastically. That made my stomach drop. I went to the bar, found one of my friends who was sitting there with a guy. She introduced us, he bought everyone drinks. After a while I felt like a bit of a third wheel so I went back to the dance floor. Eventually my group of girls regathered together. Everyone had a guy, except for one of them who had a bf at home. So I danced with her, with our friends and their guys near us. There was a photographer going around the club, taking pictures of the people there. I assume it was for some promo for their website or something. He got to our group, and literally circled us several times, taking several pics from different angles. I was kind of psyched about this, so I did my best to look like I was having a good time, made sure he could snap me at my best. But after a while I realized he wasn't circling us to get our best angles. He was trying to get a frame without ME. If I moved closer to the center of the group, for instance, he would tilt his camera a little the other way. I couldn't believe it until finally, he actually came up to me and asked me to get out of the shot. I felt so ugly right then. For all the effort I had put into looking and feeling good that night, it seemed like it just didn't matter. So the night ends with me leaving the club. My friend with the bf at home who was dancing with me left with me so I wouldn't be alone. The rest of my girl friends didn't notice what had happened with the photographer, so when they asked me where I was going I just told them I was tired and wanted to go home. And since I wasn't leaving alone, they let me. So yeah, that's my story from the weekend. Please be kinder to ugly people, Reddit. Maybe one of the people I met that night will read this post and recognize themselves. I hope so, if only so they can know how behavior they're barely conscious of can affect someone else. EDIT: I have always been a lurker on Reddit so I'm not sure if I can find out who gave me gold. But thank you, stranger! I will enjoy this gold while it lasts.

Black Friday 2014 Anticipation / Information from 2013
It hit me a few days ago that Black Friday 2014 would be here soon!!! I happen to just love love love Black Friday shopping.   I am not a morning person, a total night owl actually, so I've enjoyed that the last couple of years there have been more stores opening late on Thursday. (I don't support folks having to work on Thanksgiving just so I can shop but I won't wake up at 3 am to be at a store for a 4 am opening - I'd rather just stay up and hit a midnight opening - just a personal preference).   Last year Sephora branded their Black Friday deals as "Dealtopia". As in years past, they had some amazing $10 deals. Some were online only and some were available both in store and on-line. On-line, we were limited to two items of each deal, but many of us made multiple orders. In-store, some locations held to the two item limit of each deal, and some didn't and they let you buy more. What is always the great mystery for on-line shopping is the exact time that the deals will go live. I want to say that it was midnight EST time. Last year, the online shopping was a bit of a nightmare. Anyone remember entering the "queue" where you were advised not to hit the back-button, or refresh, else you'd lose your place in line? With some patience, many of us were able to find our desired deals.   My local store opened at midnight and when I got there at about 11:45, I was about the 15th person in line. There was only one "aggressive" shopper, who was behind me, but went kinda crazy when the doors opened. She knew what she wanted and by gosh, she wasn't afraid to nudge you out of the way to get there! Other than that, it was crazy busy but nothing horrible. They had many of the deals sitting on the main front display, but they also had some employees who had rolling carts with some of the items. Finding that "one" item you just had to have was tricky if it wasn't on the main display.   To get an idea of what the deals were in 2013, I recommend googling "Musings of a Muse Black Friday 2013" to see the great details she posted including great pictures. Captured below is the list of deals from 2013, as found on The Musings of a Muse site.   In addition, I just took a photo of the ones I bought last year that I still haven't used or given away. I think my favorite $10 item was the Josie Maran set, which included her Bare Naked Nail Wipes (20 count) and a 1 oz. Whipped Argan Oil Hand Cream in Vanilla Apricot. I think the "hot" item was the Philosophy Purity wash. What was your favorite?   Note that Sephora did most of their Black Friday advertising using Pinterest and Facebook. I do not remember how many days before Black Friday they posted what the deals would be. Do any of you remember?   All I know is that I am really excited for 2014!!! Anyone else have some tips/lessons learned from 2013?   2013 List   Lorac Fan Favorite Duo Wei Pore Purifying & Brightening Collection Philosophy Limited Edition Purity Made Simple 12oz Tocca Florence Travel Fragrance Duo Bite Lush Lip Trio Sephora Collection Sparklers Brush Set Clean Fragrance Trio Bliss Soapy Suds Body Wash and Bubble Bath (16 oz Lemon Sage, Vanilla Bergamot, Red Orange and White Pepper, or Grapefruit and Aloe) Too Faced Better Than Sex Amazing Eyes Set (Too Faced Eyeliner and Better Than Sex Mascara) Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Edition Vol. 1 Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Palette Vol. 2 Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Palette Vol. 3 Stila Collage of Color Lip & Cheek Palette Tokyomilk Takeout Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment (0.50 oz) Josie Maran Argan Hand Healers Set Vita Liberata Rich Face + Mini Mitt Duo Living Proof Gift Set (1 oz Full Conditioner, Full Shampoo, Prime Style Extender, and 0.5 oz Full Thickening Cream) Formula X Asap Real Nail Lacquer Duo Pack Ole Henriksen Clean Sweep Duo (frican Red Tea Foaming Cleanser and Truth To Go Cleansing Wipes) Boscia Pore Perfection Set (1oz Black Mask, 1 Pore Strip) The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Set Smashbox Heat Wave Lip Gloss Set Buxom Full On Lipstick in Havana Alterna Caviar Moisture Trio Buxom Curtain Call Set Nails Inc Crystaltastic Nails Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant Vanilla Grapefruit Mini Bare Minerals Enchanting Eyes Tarte Little Miracles Best Selling Essentials

Me at Half My Age – Please play along!
I thought it would be fascinating to see how people looked at half their age. This lets everyone participate no matter what his or her age! We get to see neat hairstyles, clothing, interesting stages (Goth, etc.). Let’s have fun!   Here’s how to play: find a photo of yourself at about half your age. Then find a more recent one, perhaps one you’ve posted on BT showing a makeup look, or one you particularly like.   I’ll go first. Here’s a photo of me in the pre-digital-camera era, circa 1985. I couldn’t find any of this age that showed my face any closer. It’s a scan so is a bit grainy. Even back then (and when I was younger), I had smile wrinkles. LOL The recent photo is one from a WAYWT post.     Does anyone want to play?

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?

I have a lot of makeup already and I certainly do not need more. I'm sure I am not the only one with this problem but if anyone can help me, I would appreciate.    Do you have any tips on reducing your impulse purchases ? or just stop buying so much makeup all the time?

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)

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!

First World (Makeup) Problems
Right now, my packages aren't arriving fast enough. It's not all make up, and not all Sephora.  I'm leaving tomorrow, for over a week, so if they don't come by tomorrow afternoon, I can't play with my new stuff til next week! 2 things were supposed to arrive today, 2 tomorrow.     The package I cared the least about (clothes) came today.  The package I was supposed to get today's tracking info hasn't updated in days, and still says it's supposed to be delivered today.  It's USPS and the mail already came so I'm a little annoyed I don't know where it's at.    I'm basically acknowledging the ridiculousness of being frustrated about stupid packages arriving/not arriving...and thought, I can't be alone in having "trivial" issues/annoyances.

Hair horror stories
With Halloween creeping closer, let's talk about our worst hair horror stories! Bad hair cut? Terrible color choice? Tell me your stories that make you look back and go "what was I thinking!?"    My number 1 hair horror story:  I was in 6th grade with lovely hair that was almost to my waist. I decided that I wanted a hair cut and started begging my parents. My Mom agreed to take me to a salon the following weekend... but like any brat, I wanted it NOW. I kept complaining and my dad said "I can cut your hair."    I was like "Ok! Do it." So I sat down on a stool and he chopped off my pony tail. I now had a very jagged and horrible shoulder length cut. Needless to say, I learned my lesson. A neighbor that used to be a hairdresser attempted to even it out for us, but it looked pretty terrible for a while.

I have had two perms in my life, both horrific. Why did I do it? I don't know. The look was fashionable both times (once in the late 70s, and again in the mid 80s). But ... see post

My new kitty
A while back I had made a look using the colors of the stray cat that took shelter in my home, I've fed and given her water ever since. This is the second time she's had kittens, unfortunately the last litter didn't survive and from what I know she only had two this time but only one has made it to the barely opening eyes stage. She had them on July 1st. I haven't named the kitty yet, but here's a picture of his(I'm thinking it's a he) cuteness.  Taken today.    It's been 2 months and 7 days since little neko was born. Here is his updated picture, he posed for it. He posed a lot.

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. Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving!

I added in some brand new Julep, Kiels, and a couple MAC.  I hope everybody has a grand time, I had lots of fun putting this together! I am meeting Ivy very shortly to pass on the box to the next station!     ************************************************** **** You also need to be able to meet the rules in a timely manner, keep the box moving within three days. You need to be able to post photos of what you take and link them in this thread.   This is a longer train, so if you have any travel plans in the next 2-3 months, you need to include this information when you contact me.   You need to: 1) Post in this thread 2) PM me, include full name, full address, if you were on a previous train, and if not the info above (Member for how long, somebody else who can vouch for you). This is a second round of a box, so there is a HUGE variety in here, so much great stuff (thank you previous participants!!). Very exciting to start a box that is such a great mix to start with.

If any of these are new, tape them shut and label them as new.  Leave other lipsticks/etc untapped so people can see the colours.   NOTHING THAT CAN'T BE CLEANED or SANITIZED   all cosmetic/skin care samples are fine   ***Other: For full sized items, there is a strict one in one out policy for drug store items: ie: If you want to trade in a drug store item, you must be taking out a drug store item (Feel free to take out extra drug store items lol). This will ensure that this box is largely of higher quality cosmetics (While still allowing for some variety). There will be just a few drug store items per box    *Be polite *Don't keep the box longer than a few days (please try to keep the box moving in a timely manner)    * All packages must include a tracking number, Send me (@Bcteagirl) the tracking number.   *TRADE ON OR ABOVE the value of the item you took -don't take all of one kind of item, for example, if there are 3 of one perfume, take only 1 so that others will have a chance to try them - One in/one out rule for any drugstore cosmetics (which are limited) -post in a picture and/or text what you took and left -package things carefully and put things that could leak in ziplock bags     **YOU MUST have a tracking number for your package, and it must be posted here!   Once the train order is set, you need to PM the person who is sending to you your address right away, don't wait until the train is close to you!

2014 Sephora Secret Santa
This will be US only.   I had a lot of fun [in a stressful kind of way I suppose] last year and wanted to see if anyone would be interested in doing this again!     ❤❤ The Rundown   ❤  Same as last year, we will be using elfster do conduct the exchange. It's very easy, convenient, does a random draw, lets you make a wishlist, and allows for the asking of anonymous questions so you don't have to wonder 'will they hate this color or not...'.     You will have to add your address to elfster, but no one will see it except for the person who is your santa.    Let me know you are interested and I will message you the group URL.   ❤❤ Gifting Rules   ❤  The minimum is $35 and there is no max. Now note, it doesn't have to be a single item that is $35. It can be multiple items from off of the persons wishlist that total up to be $35.   ❤ Feel free to add random goodies to your box to make it more personal, not a requirement, but just throwing it out there that you can.     ❤❤ Deadlines   ❤ To Sign Up: November 14th. Names will be drawn on November 15th and elfster will send you an email with who you got. ❤ To Send Gift: December 12th.

In Store SALE Sections!
After talking to an SA about in store sale sections she informed me that not all stores have them. I'm lucky that I have 3 Sephoras close to me and two of those have sale sections. Sometimes I'm able to get things in store that are not even available online. Other times I'm able to see and swatch items that are in the online sale sections before I make buys.   I thought it would be a good idea to get a list going of stores that actually have in store sale sections.     Hollywood & Highland - Los Angeles, CA - Reg., on isle end.   Glendale Galleria  -   Glendale, CA  - SiJCP, on isle end.   Century City - Los Angeles, CA - Reg., (they keep moving it around)

What should be Pantone Color of the Year 2015?
As far as beauty goes, I think that the tangerine (2012) and radiant orchid of 2014 were pretty successful.  It's just a little harder to incorporate emerald into an everyday makeup look, even though it's such a beautiful color too!  What would you love to see as the color of the year next year?  My prediction is some kind of gold.

Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Lips
I thought I would create a series of discussion where we could all share our make-up stashes. This is just meant to be fun.   How it works: Just take a picture of the stash mentioned in this post and upload to the discussion board. Feel free to tell us what you like best and included swatches. I know some people would love that   Ok ladies time to share your make-up stash for your LIPS - I know some of you have been waiting for this! This series includes lipsticks, lip glosses, lip pencils, lip primers, lip plumpers, lip stains and lip balms.   This is the 3rd in a series of post I will do.   Still to come: nails, perfume, skin care, body care, hair care and brushes.   For the new comers also check out the face and eye series already posted.   ************************************************** * Well I just added some lip stuff to my collection that isn’t in the picture. I am now a total BITE BEAUTY addict! I love their products and can’t wait to see what they will come up with next   I also have a lot of lip balms but they aren't in this pic.  My favorite by far is Intelligent Nutrients - Lip Delivery Nutrition.   Note to readers:  Last year MAC came out with a grey lipstick for Black Friday.  Anyone has this?  Any news if they will do it again this year?  Yes I want one! And yes I like unusual stuff.  I have the lip tar called sebastian... It's not in this pic. Go look it up. lol
