Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Four)
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun!   Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it. Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links . A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it.    Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link.    Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.    Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.    If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here: s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

a place to post about all things Sephora Favorites sets: past, present and future. Have a question, please ask.  Have a review, please post.  Have pics, please show us. These sets are one of my favorite things about shopping at Sephora. I get to try a bunch of products for a lower price and always end up finding some HG items.    Today, I got the Sephora Favorites: Beauty on the Fly. It was $42 plus ebates was at 8%.  For me, I've either been wanting to try all of these items, or have tried and really like them.    More pics and thoughts in the first post.

December Sale to start Dec. 2 for VIB and VIB Rouge??
Just posted to Trendmood's Instagram. It looks like it starts Dec. 2 for VIB and VIB Rouge.    $25 off $50 for Rouge $20 off $50 for VIB $15 off $50 for BI (Starts Dec. 3rd) Ends Dec. 14, one time use.    Let's try to keep it positive and stay excited for this sale. Yes, it starts the same day for VIB and VIB Rouge, and yes the dollar off difference is only $5, but Sephora is not obligated to do any of this. If you feel like it's not enough of a Rouge perk, then don't participate in the sale and take your business elsewhere. We all clearly love beauty products, and saving money on them is nice too, but the complaints take away from the fun those products are and the joy they bring us. Speaking if products, I will need to really think about what I'm picking up! I have three or four things spinning in my head...

Why I have been hiding ~ Why you haven't seen me on BT...
  First off I want to say that BT is one of the highlights of my day and I truly enjoy these forums. It is one of the first things I do when i turn on my computer in the morning and the last thing I do before going to bed. It would be safe to say that BT is an incredibly impt part of my life.   This is why I think it is impt that I share the following with all of my BT friends:   Last Wednesday night, Oct 5, 2016, I woke up in the trauma ward of my local hospital. Earlier that day I had been involved in serious motor vehicle accident where my car was totaled and I had sustained multiple serious injuries. Over the course of the following 48 hours in the hospital, I subsequently had two major surgeries and a myriad of tests.  It was quite something to experience,   I do not want to bore you with my troubles and i am not coming here begging for sympathy. My main reason for posting this info is to simply let my friends I have made on BT know what happened, especially if I am not as vocal in the coming months.   For those who are wondering, I am now in a medical rehabilitation center, having been discharged from the hospital four days ago. I am completely (temporarily) disabled on my entire left side from the chest down. (thank goodness I am a righty.) From here on I will focus on daily three hour sessions in both physical & occupational therapy focused on getting me back to be the normal and fully functioning 36 year old woman that I was up until a week ago. They say I will be here for many weeks/months.   I do still plan to “lurk” on the BT boards but right now between the recent trauma. feeling quite down, and honestly just losing the will to shop, (I know, shriek!)  I don’t think I would be as valuable a contributor.   Sending my love to all my BT friends… I’ll be thinking about ya!

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 !

@Emily42, i recently bought this too and am really on the fence. what are your thoughts so far? how do you use it? see post
Video Games! Anything you're currently playing?
I'm an avid lover of video games as well as being an avid lover of make up! I'm sure there are more of us out there! What are you currently playing? Currently I'm pretty obsessed with Overwatch. I played a lot of League of Legends before that, and World of Warcraft before that. I got sucked into playing ranked mode with friends and now...well For other not multi-player games, I have a pretty bad backlog...I really really want to play the new Pokemon game (Pokemon Sun for that Vulpix please) since I've played every version before the newest one. Also need to play Final Fantasy XV. It just came out and it having great reviews which surprised me since I was pretty not into XII or XIII. I hope it is as good as X and the previous ones (X being my favorite!). I'm also waiting excitedly until April/May 2017 for Persona 5. It is one of my favorite series and I even got my boyfriend hooked on the series! I probably should finish the DLC for Dragon Age Inquisition too, but it's been so long and I had to replace my video card since it couldn't even run it that I forgot what happened lol

NOVEMBER 2016 - Notoriously Naughty (Not Quite) Holiday Hauls
Well it's time for a new haul thread! With the lead up to the holidays, I'm sure we're about to see some epic hauling from everyone!!

@pinyo, no - that's not my style :) i love this thread!! (sorry for the heart palps, btw.) see post
Sephora Sales Section- Get it Now!
If you see something awesome in the Sephora sales section, let us know. Sometimes items sell out quickly, so they get buried in other threads. Even if I check multiple times a day (and I sometimes do), you may check at a different time and find stock on items I missed (and vice versa). It seems like stock is often updated around 9am Pacific, but that is not always a given. ord=Sale&topNav=true   If you find something on sale not listed in the sales section, please list that here as well. Share your Easter Eggs with us. Thanks!

Oh, there was one weird item that sephora couldn't sell that showed up for years in the sale section.  Anyone remember the emerald crack nail ring?!  lol see post
Back in stock holiday stuff
I get so lost in the longer threads...  Since some of the holiday stuff has gone out of stock (with indications that they will come back in stock) I figured I'd start a thread just for items that come back in stock. Givenchy, Burberry, Bite, Nars, ABA, Sephora Favorites.  What am I missing?  I'll post every few days so the thread doesn't disappear but if you see something back in stock please add it here!!!  Then, we won't all need to stock the individual items and threads. I will heart every back in stock item here (unless I miss it, which has been known to happen).  And I'd encourage others to do the same.  We do want to reward those who try to help others on BT, right?

Nars unfiltered blush sets back in stock!  see post
HI ! only two three days left in the month so i's november faves time, yay. i have lots of stuff i want to mention this month !     NARS x SARAH MOON moon matte lipstick, indecent proposal . this is my new favorite dark-nude. in a similar family to something like BITE thistle, but this one is just more flattering on me; i think perhaps because  it leans more cool brown rather than blue-grey this lip combo: NARS velvet lip liner, patong beach and NARS velvet lip glide, playpen . playpen is described as a 'coral' but i'd describe it more as a warm rose. this combo brightens my face, which i was in need of after a bit of a difficult month. sometimes i include NYX soft matte lip cream in 'zurich' (as a middle layer between the liner and glide) which brightens it up a bit more. last all day, too ! MURAD hydro-dynamic quenching essence serum . i've been screaming my praises all over the boards this month for this stuff. what can i say, it's brilliant. i know that 'essence' is in the title (not serum, actually) but this is a serum--designed to help your skin retain moisture. it helped turn my chronically (plane exhausted) dehydrated skin around after about a month of trying  everything . i use it morning and night, before moisturizer (and before oil as well, at night). leaves skin bouncy, and find that it works very well with makeup as well. works particularly brilliantly with CLARINS blue orchid oil, too....i'd be remiss to not mention that. GIVENCHY ombre couture cream eyeshadow, beige mousseline . i wore this non stop for 2 weeks this month, when i wore no other eye makeup. i originally got this thinking it was a matte warm beige. it's not matte. it has bits of glitter mixed into an otherwise matte cream. this would piss a lot of people  off. it may have even pissed me off. but it's perfect. it gave me a bit of glittery magic when i needed it. bless. this hair combo: BRIOGEO be gentle be kind green tea clarifying shampoo, and BRIOGEO don't despair, repair conditioning mask . i only wash my hair once a week (on average) and usually cowash (devacurl or aveda) which works really well for me, but i definitely needed an occasional clarifying shampoo, and this stuff is perfect. it's sulfate and silicone free, very gentle but effective, and leaves my hair way soft. i also have been using the repairing conditioning mask, and love it because it is a repairing mask that does not leave my hair feeling coarse or heavy (which 'repairing' protein and b-vitamin rich conditioners usually do). Spoiler (Highlight to read)   can't wait to see what people have been loving this month   (p.s. i will be starting a YEARLY FAVES thread in a week or so, which should be fun)

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)

Hmmmm that sounds good to me..... Thank you @Tamara76 😄 see post
MOTD: Mask Of The Day!
I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well!   I'll start things off!   Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask
