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 started this in Greenie's thread, but, people suggested to make a new thread for this, so here we are...   So, Spring is finally here. Or... sort of.... ( But, that snow the other day has nothing to do with the bright yellow and pastel green I feel like wearing, right? )   Anyway, I was thinking we could do 30+ day challenge of Spring ( and Summer ) colors, just for fun, and the heck of it. Let's have some fun! If anyone feels like joining me, please do. If you don't want to do the challenge, please feel free to stop by just because, whenever and why ever you feel like to.   Let's paint the BT with Spring colors, ladies and gents!     P.S. It turned out I need to remove what's left of my "wisdom" asap... so.... I'll start the fun, and re-join you as soon as I can. But, you go ahead and have fun. I'll be watching, and live through you all!   Day 1 - Maybelline Vivids in Shocking Coral Day 2 - NARS Audacious in Brigitte + NARS lip gloss in Priscilla Day 3 - MAC Candy Yum Yum Day 4 - Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Romanesque

I know we still have a few more hours until the 1st, but I thought I'd start us off, anyway!   I got the email that the Shiseido Veiled Rouge lipstick I tried to buy earlier this week (but got a shadow shipped to me instead, lol) was back in stock, so I decided to try buying it again.   Come on guys!  Let's hope the second time for Skyglow is the charm   What've you hauled or will be hauling this month?

So I feel like doing my makeup, but it's raining so I don't think I'll be going out. That's not the point of this status though.   What kind of music do you prefer on a rainy day?   Mine goes from classical music, to the beatles, and of course - David Bowie!        Edited to include the picture I took the other day.    After the storm calms:   Both taken by me.

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.

What a depressing two days we have had. First, the untimely death of the great Robin Williams yesterday. And now, today, the beautiful Lauren Bacall. She was not only a gorgeous, talented woman, she was also a devoted wife to Humphrey Bogart and mother to his children. We lost another great one today, and although she will now be reunited with her Bogey, she's going to be missed forever by the ones she left behind. Rest in peace beautiful Betty.

Lately I have been going over my purchases and I noticed a tiny trend - I am obsessed with some things more than others.   So what are your 5 things/products that you are obsessed with lately (it could be anything - from food to clothing to makeup, etc)?   Mine are: - Skin care (Algenist, face masks, and serums) - Purses (bought 4 purses in one year, and continuing to look .. smh) - Starbucks (holiday drinks) - NARS creamy concealer - Bite Beauty

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?!?!

I have a interview for a desk attendant position (for next school year) in my dorm next week Wednesday. I'm really nervous even though there's a high chance of me getting it since I'm friends with the current DAs and Hall Director. Can anyone give me good tips on how to calm my nerves before and during the interview? My nerves can escalate very rapidly and turn into full blown panic attacks.I really, really don't want to screw this up. Thank you!

    I like to plan for these sales way in advance. I know it's not till the end of March / early April but I thought this feed would be fun to see what everyone is considering! What do you plan on purchasing?   Here's what I'm considering... definitely need to slim down the list... what do you think are must haves out of these?

Come and let everyone know if you've done a trade with someone or they've been an awesome TSB contributor! Let's give kudos to our BT BFFs!    So a post could be one persons feedback on another, how a trade went, did they ship quickly, etc. and others could reply if they dealt with the same person and how their trade went.

I just read in a back issue of Rachael Ray - "$137.  That's the average total cost of your makeup. And for a third of you that number actually goes north of $200!"   OMG!  I carry more than this in my purse.

After a thread on here today, I got to thinking. Where and how do you store your makeup? I keep my every day makeup in a bag in my purse. All day, all night, all the time. That keeps just what I wear every day. BB cream, primer, powder, naked basics, mascara, eye liner ( liquid and pencil ) mascara, a couple of lip liners, 4 lippies, blush and a few assorted blushes. These go with me EVERYWHERE. At home i have a 3 drawer organizer in my bathroom, with each drawer full and dedicated to different things. One is full of nothing but just face makeup. powder, foundation, blush, things like that. One for eyes, and one for lippies. I also have 2 storage cabinets in my bathroom where i keep my skin care in one and then another full of my hair products. I also have another organizer full of nail polish and then one more for samples. It is a cute little cloth box, and i want to say i got the idea off of here! Anyways! Tell me where you store ladies!!

Does anyone on BT have this? What are your thoughts on it? I'm going to test it in my local Nordstrom tomorrow. They just got in 6.  I like the powder gelee concept but not sure about the color and I'm not crazy about the packaging...but it seems to have been kind of popular because it's had a few online appearances and sold out right away. I know everyone is looking for something like last years Heat Wave and apparently the formula on this is similar but not the color or packaging. Trendmood1 on IA had a nice review and swatch. Thoughts?

I know we have a thread where we' talk about being healthier and such, and much like the challenges for makeup, this will be a challenge for exercise. Today I finally decided "Enough of this slugging around."      I just finished one mile  at a 3 mile speed and switching to 2.5 once in a while.    If you're starting this journey with me, please check out (I hope Malday doesn't mind me calling the thread this) - the sister thread. Here you will find healthy recipes, AND delicious as well. I'll be including some vegan/vegetarian recipes mainly.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/The-Reci pe-Thread/m-p/1845978/highlight/true#M101081   So I won't title this 30 day challenge, but I will aim for 30 days and keep going from there, hopefully.   Here's an image of some stretches provided by the lovely ShannonAlexis:

I find because of my sensitive acne prone skin that certain brands work well for me. I also fear that I get caught up with a brand and if I want a product it takes very little to sway me (if I have the money for it of course) I have acquired almost all the Tarte Clay blushes and the Kat Von D LE palettes...etc. It's like a sickness. Very hard for me to try new brands!

For the beauty-obsessed community, I just wanted to write down my mental processes whenever I find myself trapped in a beauty shopping spree. I truly truly need help with my habit but that's a different story. This is purely for your enjoyment:   SO I'm either bored, stressed, annoyed or just want to intentionally distract myself. I'm supposed to just be "browsing" Sephora and my other beauty sites yet I'm armed with the latest promo codes but really not intending to buy anything... really . Then I just so happen to drop things that might be interesting to own into my cart. A couple hours later I've got a cart full of things on 3 different sites and ooh surprise: I now qualify for my promo code..hmm that just mysteriously happened. But I'm not really gonna buy this stuff...I just wanna see what it looks like in my cart  right . Close the pages. Later on reminder emails pop up letting me know I have things in my cart (diablo!). I'm back on..just looking...and thinking. Hmm, free shipping, free giftset, rewards points, maintain reward status... It's not that much $$$, I'll make it my last purchase for the year...okay maybe I won't buy anything for another couple months...unless I get a big discount. I can give some of these items as gifts. That way I'm not just selfishly shopping. Ok, lets go over the cart once more, maybe there's some stuff I don't really have to have right now. Hmm, I can get rid of *this* and still meet the promo/free shipping. The reviews on it aren't great anyway. Ok, total came down a bit, there not so bad! Now which credit card should I use...ok, maybe debit for this and credit on the other stuff. Definitely not the joint account, hubby will kill me...or not. Nah, don't wanna chance it. Still, he understands, we all have our vices and he likes the fact that I like to keep up my appearance. He's so understanding. Maybe I should go over this purchase with him. Nah..it's not that much. Geez it's just makeup, not a new car! Okay, let me have this shipped to my office since we may not be home (subconsciously, it's because I don't want my new purchases discovered). Ok, deep breath...hit " Submit Order "...done! Elation, victory, excitement, anticipation of bragging rights, guilt, satisfaction, acceptance.      Relate much?

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)

I absolutely love the 21 days sale Ulta has twice a year.  However, I find myself regretting NOT buying certain items as the become on sale that day due to trying to have some restraint.  They make it very difficult for Platinun members with free shipping with no minimum, and lots of deals/stackable beauty breaks/coupons, etc...   In particuliar, I regret not buying more Butter London polishes, and I shouldve bought a Stila lip gloss yesterday.  I also highly regret not buying some Stila liners.  I am also glad I traded for a Clarisonic brush head since there isnt one on sale this time...   Anything you regret NOT buying or anything you wish you hadn't bought?  Share ladies!

I started thinking about this because this past week I've been having a lot of consternation with my vision.  I wear hard contacts and the pair I was wearing was 4-5 years old (they really are supposed to only last up to 2 years but I'm really bad at going in to the eye doctor) and basically they were so out of shape and scratched up that one lens ended up causing a tear in my eye.  It's a small tear so don't worry!  But I was out of commission from Friday till Wednesday.  I do have glasses which I wear but the lenses are ridiculously thick so I'm very embarrassed to wear them anywhere especially work.    Now that I finally got my new lenses and can see again I thought how amazing a thing it is to be able to see clearly.  I used to have to run to the bathroom all the time to rinse my contacts because my vision would get blurry.  Now I don't have to do that.  I can comfortably work all day.  I can't tell you how wonderful a feeling it is.   I think many of us don't take time out to really think about the simple things we are grateful for.  I know I don't.

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 !
