JUBILANT JUNE FAVORITES
....i used 'jubilant'. i waited all month for this (for those who know what i'm talking about). I MEANT TO USE "JAUNTY". I SHOULD NOT MAKE POSTS AFTER HAVING A SAKE COCKTAIL. fail.   ok....what have been my favorite things this month ???   PIXI glow tonic . i only got this toward the end of the month, but i love it. i use it in the morning before i put on any serum/oil and moisturizer (typically after i use the CLINIQUE *mild* clarifying lotion, if i happen to use it in the morning, sometimes i don't). it smells really nice yet not overbearing at all. can be sprayed over makeup to refresh your foundation if it's looking a bit patchy / dehydrated. totally works ! ....which leads me to CLINIQUE mild clarifying lotion . this is the only one in the range that does not contain alcohol. i wish it were called something different, actually, because the clarifying lotions have SUCH a reputation. but with consis use over the past month, i've found that some stubborn congestion on my chin has gone away completely, due to the salicylic acid. while things like the FAB pads give good 'glow' and help with gentle exfoliation (with the glycolic and lactic acid), the salicylic is good for stubborn unclogging. NYX lip liner in pale pink . it is quite pale, almost greyish pink. but because it leans grey rather than blue, it doesn't look garish or too "barbie" (which is great for a lot of women but not on me). just a unique color which is a good base for nudey pink lips (particularly with the slightly warmer MAC honey love, my go-to and always-favorite.) SEPHORA COLLECTION eyeliner in 'strawberry macaroon' . perfect waterline color. can look very natural, but also great for smokey eye looks because it gives a bit of that heroin chic sheen when contrasted with darker liner/shadows. can't beat the price. i put this in my favorites a couple months ago, i think, but i've only been using it regularly this month. i'd be remiss in not mentioning it again.   SHISEIDO wetforce spf 50 . because it works. and i really needed something that works WELL while in hawaii. i'm proof because i easily could've turned full-lobster if using anything less effective.  BUMBLE AND BUMBLE hairdresser's invisible oil shampoo, conditioner and hair "primer" . this is the only shampoo and conditioner i've used all month (which isn't saying much as i only wash my hair once a week, really, but still)-- with the slight exception of putting AVEDA dry remedy hair masque on the ends (which i will consider a monthly favorite, too). my hair is more manageable than it's been the entirety of my growing-out process. i've loved any b&b shampoo and conditioner i've tried, really. highly recommend. edited to add: sake cocktails . because they taste like whatever heaven you mix the sake with (in this case: watermelon juice and lavender) and leave you feeling STUPID and happy.    alright ! how about you guys ?

RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY
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.

Lost forever?
I realized when I was packing for my trip to Florida at the beginning of the month that one of my lipsticks is missing. I really don't have that many, so it's not like I have a lot to keep track of. But it's Fanny from the Audacious like and she's my favorite pink. I don't have a dupe for that shade and I've wanted to wear it a few times this month and I can't find it ANYWHERE!    Do you guys ever lose makeup? Or is it just me and my scatterbrained self.

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?

What to do in NYC?
I've already PMed a couple of BTers who live in NYC, but I figured I'd ask everyone for advice on what I simply should not miss during my upcoming trip.   My friend and I will be staying in Brooklyn for five days in August, and we're looking to experience more local haunts as opposed to places most tourists frequent (I lived in New York for half of my life, so I've done the Times Square / Natural History / Statue of Liberty thing many, many times). I want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge and my friend wants to spend time in Central Park, but other than that, we really want to find some hidden gems: places to eat, waste time, listen to good music, and shop.   So, NYC locals, what do you suggest?

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)

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 !

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.
