The only thing I love more than shopping is getting a great deal.  I've created a website, with the same name as this thread (minus spaces and the exclamation point), to share my passion with more people.  If you share here and want to keep the deal exclusive to BT viewers, just write for BT only in the post.   I will heart every deal I see .  If your deal does not have a heart from me, I have not seen it yet.  A heart with no comment means I already had your deal on my site or am not planning on listing it (I may already have a better offer or another possible reason).   Should I use your deal, I will thank you here and mention that it was "shared on BT" on my site.  Thanks again to everyone who shares!    If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Spring -Summer-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/1 ...

I hope you guys don't mind me starting this one off early. I feel like April is my month. New job and all. So here's a new makeup item added to my sailor moon collection.    So basically. That cap can be put on a pen or pencil or my eyeliner.

So I live with two roommates, one of which I don't know well. He's an international Chinese PHD student in computer science so we don't really hang out much but he just sent me some unexpected words when all I did was ask about lowering the thermostat. I posted the texts below--did my text even warrant that kind of attitude?   I'm a clean, communicative person and can't stand his habits of not recycling, not once helping with throwing out the garbage, not cleaning up after himself in the kitchen, not locking the door, and lack of communication with cranking up the heat but I been putting up with it and cleaning up after him because he's moving out this semester and the last time I tried to have an adult conversation with him, he got defensive/sarcastic and called me rude. My other roommate already told me he's a hard person to get along with but I still feel upset and angry that I have to live with someone like that for the next few months.

...on a shopping spree else where! I'm not sure if I should be thanking Sephora or still be pissed but my makeup collection is satisfied. And no this isn't a complaining post but about the nutty things I have done to get my makeup/beauty fix on elsewhere..... I think what takes the cake is I opened a Nordstrom card and in the mall I frequent, Nordstrom and Sephora are located right next to each other, so I think my love affair with Sephora is sadly...dying o_O   I've become LE obsessed, promo gwp overwhelmed, and sale/discount savvy all from the lack of love from my original bae Sephora (did I really just use the word bae?!) So yes, all of this unrequited love has drove me crazy... What has Sephora done to make you a little nutty this year?

Hi everyone!   Just wanted to share that after nearly 6 years working with Sephora I am saying my goodbye! I know many of you have messaged me, come to me for assistance and have become familiar faces but it is my time to move on!     Thank you for your great topics, advice and pictures you all so love to share! This has been so much fun getting to know you all and share your joys and woes! Thank you all for the heart parties and posts too.   As my PM's are now off, please reach out to Melissa, Zanna, Laura, Kevin, Nika or Randee if you have any issues or questions and I know they will be able to help!    I leave you with my favorite saying, "You can never have too much lipgloss."

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)

Here are my wish list items: -structured, it doesn't have to be rigid, but I would like some structure to it -crossbody strap as well as shoulder handles -zip top -metal feet -not cloth -about 12 inches across -as many interior pockets as possible... -multiple sections would not make me sad -Priced up to $500   Anybody have a purse they love that meets all or most of these items? Any help would be fabulous! Thanks in advance!

mini haul i really wanted to get the Laura Mercier Eyeshadow palette but they were out of stock. So i got some skincare products from Skinfood. I spent 55 dollars so i guess it would be the same thing as getting the palette... hopefully the eyeshadow palette will be in stock before the sale ends.

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!

If all your beauty products disappeared for some reason, which are the 5 items that you would repurchase first without any doubt ? In other words, these items would very likely be your holy grail products which you couldn't live without in your makeup collection. (If you can, try to list the products in order, having the most important item as your first time on your list)   1. Lip product: Fresh lip balm! It can be used as a lipbalm and can also give your lips color!   2. Mascara: ROLLER LASH! This is what make my eyes pop and open up.   3. A creamy concealer! Nars creamy concealer or the MUFE full cover concealer. It covers up the imperfections on my skin.   4. A palette! I This palette must be a holy grail that I could use for my eyes, nose (contouring), brows, and even my cheek! Then this could save me from having a few less items out of the 5.   5. Last but not least, I have to give my last item to my chloe love story perfume (or MJ daisy dream)! I love to smell great and fresh all day, cos the perfume I sprayed on could definitely affect the mood I am in that day       Thank goodness my makeup hasn’t disappeared, since it would be super hard and to choose only 5 items! I find this question really challenging (but fun at the same time) when I was asked by my cousins and friends who came to visit me. They were shocked by all the beauty products I have in my room. I know 5 products aren't enough, but I wanted to know what products would be on list of the others.   Let me know what your list would be like. I am really interested in knowing what would be the few items that all you lovelies couldn't live without

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
I've always been a fan of Korres' nourishing, plant-rich products, so when I heard they were going back to their apothecary roots with a new line of essentials made with homeopathic recipes, I was super intrigued. I talked to George and Lena Korres to get the scoop on this new line and the brand's rich heritage.    The Korres story is fascinating and spans generations. Talk a little about how the brand started. George : When I was only eight years old I would “experiment” with formulas in my mother’s apothecary – almost twenty years later I found myself as a homeopathic pharmacist in the oldest apothecary in Athens! This is where Lena and I created small batches of herbal remedies for friends, family and fans, and soon word spread all over Greece. Using our deep knowledge of over 3000 herbal extracts we began creating natural beauty solutions, and from there the KORRES brand was born.     What was the inspiration behind starting this new apothecary line ? George : For over twenty years we‘ve been creating advanced formulas rooted in traditional plant remedies passed down from generation to generation. Visitors of Greece would come to our herbal apothecary and fall in love with our natural remedies, but when they traveled back home they were frustrated that they couldn’t find these products at their local store!   Lena : Particularly beauty editors, who would reach out to us constantly asking where they can find these remedies in the United States. So finally we decided it was time to share these precious formulas, and we’re so happy to offer them exclusively to Sephora.   How do you source the herbs that are used in your products and these new essential oils ? George : We are extremely proud of our partnerships with several farming co-operatives all over Greece. We work with organic farmers who are experts in gentle and sustainable harvests that respect the earth. We have developed a custom extraction process that allows us to harness the full power of the plants but with a completely no-waste process to further benefit the environment.     How would you recommend using essential oils for clients who aren't familiar with them? Lena: There are countless applications for using essential oils. The art and science of aromatherapy dates back thousands of years and it encompasses everything from anti-aging facial treatments to de-stressing body massages. The key to application is to always dilute powerful essential oils in a milder base for a safe topical treatment. From there, it is all about choosing the blends that best suit your needs! Our Precious Oils Collection contains an entire recipe booklet that allows you to precisely measure and mix your own custom blends to heal and soothe face, body, hair and home.   What is the story behind the new Honey Base Syrup ? What kind of product is it? Lena: The Honey and Herbal Supplement Syrup is a global icon for us – practically every home in Greece has one in their refrigerator! It soothes with natural ingredients honey, thyme, fennel and aniseed, all of which also help provide energy, and is completely preservative free.   George: The recipe is based on a Korres family tradition passed down from my great-great grandfather. It perfectly captures the heart and spirit of the KORRES herbal apothecary: totally natural formulas based on ancient traditions that soothe the body and the spirit.

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?

So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases. Here's what I've found so far:   Dior Spring 2015 - Kingdom of Colors (Images from A Bit Of Blusher)     Guerlain Spring 2015 (Images from Rouge Deluxe) Isn't this collection so cute?!?!

We all know the feeling. You see a lovely product, and instantly want to buy it. But then the cruel little Scrooge inside your head says "NO! You're never going to use this, you don't need it!" But the heart wants what it wants, and sometimes doesn't listen to the head.   This is a thread for those products you know you don't need and won't use, but want anyway. Maybe it's a beautiful color that doesn't complement your skin, or that you have no place to wear. Maybe it's just a product type you never use, but like the idea of. Maybe you wouldn't mind buying it anyways but Gosh! $50 dollars is a lot for a product you'll never use.   Here you can share the products you're internally struggling with,  and why you're struggling with them, as well as the ones you've broken down and bought anyways, and if you regret the purchase or not.    I currently have three impractical temptations.  1. Poe. It's a beautiful color, it's sparkly, dark blue goes nicely with my complexion, and it's named after my favorite poet. But realistically, how often am I going to wear a blue lipstick? Where am I going to wear a blue lipstick? It doesn't even go with any of my outfits. But still, it sure is pretty, and will probably end up it my cart one of these days.   2. Tarte's Rainforest After Dark Palette. I already have dupes of most of the eye shadow colors, and the blush, bronzer, and highlighter aren't particularly flattering shades for me. But I LOVE the packaging. I just can't quite justify $40 for a gold snake though haha.   3. Anything nail polish.  I never wear nail polish for some reason, but I keep seeing all these colors that I want to get "just in case." Thing is, I already have several "just in case" colors that I love, and I still only use them at most three times a year. Oh well.   So how about it? What products are you all struggling with?
