Samples and Point Perks that are not in my skin color!!
Okay, I guess this is more of a rant than a question.   So I am really getting upset with the fact that every time I check the free samples page and there are BB creams, CC creams, Concelears, etc. they only come in one color or a select few.   Also, most of the 500 point perks, like a Nars one, or the new Laura Mercier come with foundation or blushes that are not for everyone's skin tone.  It just aggravates me that only a few people can use the entire perk.  I don't want to use 500 points on a gift when I can only use a few of the items.     I got the Dior BB cream sample the other day and was like ughhh, this is not going to work, it is way to light.  I know some of you may say that  go to a store and get a sample. But the closest store is 45 minutes away, I get freaked out at the fact of the makeup being out in the open for everyone to touch and the air getting into the bottles, and lastly, they never give me enough of a sample to really test it.   I wonder if I was the only person that feels this way.

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!

Which brands do you wish Sephora carried?
Exactly what the title says I know we've chatted about this before, but I thought I'd revive the topic with a new thread. With Chic Week coming up and new collections/products/lines dropping what feels like every day, what brands (collections, too, since Sephora's offering can be limited at the brand's discretion) do you wish you saw on shelves?   For me, it would be Chanel, Tom Ford, and YSL's Spring collection. Chanel's Illusion d'Ombres (cream shadows) and Glossimers (lip glosses) are calling to me with their siren song, as are Tom Ford's lippies, quads and contour palettes (however exorbitantly priced!!!). I love YSL lippies, so I wish the new colors got some love here at Sephora.    Oh, and while we're on the subject, ByTerry and Chantecaille wouldn't hurt, either! I adore both, and don't own nearly enough of either!

What are your makeover faux-pas?
Hi beauties!  So I've had a few makeovers in my life and while it can be fun, I have never liked the result. I feel like I am just too particular about the way that I want my makeup done and I always feel like I come out of the experience looking like a clown.  Do any of you know what I am talking about?    Here are some of my makeover no-no's:   - People who think that just because I am blonde with fair skin, a nude lip should be "concealer color". I have really pigmented lips and a really pale nude looks absolutely grotesque on me...    - People who ask what you like/dislike only to disregard it. Like insisting on using copper shades on me after I tell them that I hate the way I look in copper eyeshadows.... because it's just SOOOO gorgeous on blue eyes, and of ONLY I could see for myself how good it looks....NO, just no    - People who apply eyeshadow as if they didn't notice the fact that I have hooded eyes.   -People who are dying to cover my oily skin in super shimmery, highlights and powders... no thanks I am not into the grease lightening look.   Well the list goes on...  What do other people do wrong when they do YOUR makeup?  Dish please!

Cheap thrills!
  It had been years since I purchased anything from the drugstore until a good friend started telling me all about the great stuff she would find. Lilahtov found those amazing Milani lip colors. Since I am on a serious low buy the next few months I thought I would give some of her product suggestions a try and VOILA! Many of the things she suggested are great!! Then I realized that there should be a thread specifically to share these low cost gems! I mean the Queen of Blending swears by Milani lipsticks, Spoiledbrat loves Wet&wild....why shouldn't I branch out? Maybelline full and soft mascara is my HG after all. How awesome would it be to actually have an idea of what you are buying, and to have even maybe have seen a swatch?  Please share your drugstore hauls, swatches and reviews here and share your wealth of knowledge! I know there are lots of us who have favorite things that come from a drugstore And for those of us on a low buy this could be a life saver!     Here I go: I bought a Milani lip liner in fuchsia ( love it- definitely worth 4$) , a wet & wild palette in Poster Child, Milani baked shadows in I heart you (red) and Must have fuchsia ( hot pink), and Revlon super lustrous lipstick in creme Cherries in the Snow ( inside swatch) and Revlon super lustrous lipstick shine in Fuchsia shock! So far I know I LOVE both lippies  and the lip liner. More to come...   All right my savvy shopping beauties! Share your best kept drug store secrets with the rest of us. I can't wait to hear and see!!!   for those friends interested in cruelty free drugstore cosmetics here are the brands found to be cruelty free so far***** sulfate found : Milani, NYX , ELF, Wet & Wild, Burt's Bees, Physicians Formula and Jordana

Does beauty youtubers make money?
I was just watching a review done by RAEeivew I didn't watcher her videos from the beginning.. so I might be missing something but she literally buys everything high end and in multiples too. as in 6 different Giorgio Armani foundations in her own skin color (I got the feeling that she's buying stuff for her own use)  Does she just have a job that pays like a celebrity or is she inherently rich like her dad owns Samsung does anyone know?

Deluxe samples: do you open them right away?
I am interested to hear if you guys open your deluxe samples right away, or if you wait to finish a product in the same category before opening it. I wait to finish my products before opening up a deluxe sample, even though I really want to open it! For example, I am currently finishing up a primer before opening up the Hourglass primer sample and porefessional. I also am waiting to try out some mini mascaras and mini exfoliators. I don't know why I wait when I want to try them so bad hah. Does anyone else do this?

Beauty Poem
I came across this poem and thought it would be perfect to share with everyone. I don't know the author and also read that it was Audrey Hepburn's favorite poem. I hope you share this will all of the girls and women in your life.   For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; Never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; One for helping yourself, and one for helping others.

Throwback Thursday - Love it or Leave it!!
Happy Thursday BT babes!  Since "throwback thursday" is such a huge trend, I thought it would be fun to do a "love it or leave it" throwback.  Share your fav makeup trend throughout the years... and the one you are SOOOO glad faded away.  Enjoy!   Love, love, LOVE it - Classic 50s inspired makeup. That perfect winged liner & a well defined lip. It transcends the decades & really will never go out of style     Leave it: The 80s.  Its fun to reminisce, but I don't think I'd ever be able to pull of the the bights colors, heavy liner, major shadow... just not me!               Cant wait to see what some of your #TBT posts!!   xo, Mia
