What is the best skincare routine/cover up makeup for overplucked areas?
What is the best skincare routine/cover up makeup for overplucked areas? Such as on the face such as lip and chin? People always comment about what looks like bruising on my face but its actually just between-stages hair growth or irritated redness from overplucking or waxing.  Foundation or concealer just make the area more noticeable and does not promote healing. Since I pluck those areas on a regular basis, they really don't get much of a chance to heal.

I think your best bet would be color correcting those areas before applying foundation, especially if they look purplish/Dark. Depending on your skin tone, a shade of pe... see post
Beauty Products That Share Your Name
Just like finding your name on a gift shop key-chain, I've always liked being able to do the same with beauty products. I thought it'd be fun to have a thread where you could post products (even non-beauty ones!) that share your name.   Here are the (few) products that I've found with my name: Zoya Lauren* (pink nude beige with shimmer) Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Lauren (punk rock pink) Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick in Lauren (creamy matte copper) Julep Lauren (hot tropical pink creme; discontinued) Napoleon Perdis Mattetastic Lipstick in Lauren* (pink tan; looks like it is now extremely hard to find in the US) *products I own    Also, shout out to @veronika23  for suggesting to start a new thread on the main feed.    I can't wait to see what products everyone will dig up!

Well.. I'm back, I think.
Since January, everything has been a very heavy burden, my grandma's health declined so I was not at liberty to go out to even go grocery shop because I was the one that had to help my grandma stand up, I didn't mind. Unfortunately, she passed away this February 15 at 8:43 PM in her home, surrounded by loved ones. Needless to say that everyone in our family feels a gap in their heart, but being how I was the one that lived with her since I was a baby, I grew up with her, I took care of her.. I feel like I lost my second mother and grandmother. At times before her death I was at peace, other times too depressed to even get up.  I almost didn't go to her funeral, I feared I could not take it, I almost couldn't, but I stayed strong enough to be able to go through it.  We buried her in Mexico, where she was born, where she grew, where she lived, her beautiful home town, where she helped the less fortunate, where she helped anybody, everybody.. everyone loved her. You should've seen the street the other day, we showed her pictures, recorded videos, and audio of her voice.. not only did we cry, but we laughed as well-the street was packed. Almost our entire family went down there which is around 65+.  Yesterday we finally put her in her last residing resting place, with my grandfather and her brother. My beloved grandmother, I will always have her in my heart, I will always feel her presence, and that wisdom and patience she had I will try to imitate. For she was truly one of a kind, a beautiful soul that put everyone before her, without as much as a single negative word, nor negative phrase - you'd never hear her say anything that wasn't positive.  I am sorry to have to be writing this here but unfortunately, even though I lived with her all my life and would've loved to say something at her funeral, my cousin from Dallas (she's a nice lady) took over the funeral program and it was mainly people from Dallas that were included and my cousin and I (my cousin who also grew up close with me) were excluded. I regret that, that is what I regret, I felt left out in a day where we celebrated my grandmother and her life.

Macy's Not Accepting Returns on Opened Beauty Products Anymore??
Hey guys!    I don't post on here often, but wanted to share what happened to me today.    I went to Macy's to return the Too Faced white chocolate chip palette today (was not impressed!) with the receipt and return sticker accompanying me. An employee working the Impulse area informed me that Macy's will no longer be accepting returns on opened beauty products because it costed them too much. She still let me return the palette, though, just for this time.    Wondering; has anyone else encountered this new policy yet?!? I will definitely not be purchasing makeup or skincare from Macy's anymore, I have sensitive skin and am quite picky about my products, especially when they can be purchased elsewhere and returned if I'm dissatisfied.

What do you wish were a beauty trend right now?
The title pretty much says it all.  What is a beauty look that you like, that you wish were more trendy?  (I know something doesn't have to be a trend in order for you to wear it, but it's nice when something you like is trendy because then companies come out with a bunch of new products for you to choose from!)   A few trends I would like to see: (1) Liquid blush.  I love the look of liquid blush, but there aren't that many options out there.   (2) Sheer lip colors.  Opaque matte lips seem to be popular right now, but I prefer the look of a tinted lip balm.   (3) More purple and blue-toned lip colors.  Mainly because those colors look good on me.   (4) Darker eye makeup.  I like the look of deepset eyes, so I'd like to see dark eye makeup become more of a trend during the daytime.  Perhaps not a full smoky eye, but at least some darker browns and grays than are typically seen in the daytime. - On second thought, smoky eyes at work would actually be a really cool trend.   (5) Tubing mascara.  I think it's great how easily tubing mascara washes off, and I like how when your eyes water, the tubes don't smudge the way normal mascara does.  But right now, tubing mascara lengthens, but doesn't do a great job of adding separation, thickness, volume, etc.  If it became a trend, I think we might see some better formulas emerge.

I searched the threads and didnt see anywhere to post this really but I had to share
I see alot of you that use ebates but there are others, topcashback and mrrebates that will earn you more. For example, Ulta at mrrebates is 6% ebates is only at 3%. Topcashback has games throughout the year that will earn you cash back and put you in for a drawing for more cashback as a grand prize. Topcashback also has it where you don't have to wait quarterly for your money, you can cash in any time to your bank account or giftcards. Sorry for such a long read but I had to share with my fellow beauty addicts!

QVC TSV "Today's Special Value" Alerts Thread
After a conversation with other BTers, I got the idea to start this thread. Basically, if you are not familiar with QVC and it's daily TSV, a TSV is (according to QVC):   "Every day, we pick one special item and offer it at an extra special value that day. It's an item we believe you'll love. And we love telling the story behind it. Today's Special Value ®. More than a daily deal. The best find of the day®."   Many time TSVs will have bundled in them incredible discounts on beauty/makeup products, especially products that haven't launched yet. They are always launched at midnight on the day of their launch and are only good for that day. Many times they will sell out before the day is up!   Here is an example of a TSV from January 14, 2017: It was $79.96 on the TSV day only; Sold separately $182 ( Please note: this is no longer available at that price! )   As a longtime QVC beauty customer, I (usually) get alerts a few days before about upcoming beauty TSVs. I would like to use this thread to  as an INFORMATION/ALERTS thread where I post upcoming beauty/makeup/skincare TSVs for the benefit of the community . I can always create a related QVC discussion thread for the community if demand suggests that we need it.

Most Underappreciated Products In Your Collection?
i know we do threads similar to this from time to time, but i figured starting a fresh one couldn't hurt !!   what are some of the most underappreciated products in your collection ? products that you know you like--or LOVE--but just don't think to reach for ? may this thread help us rediscover our much loved but rather neglected things !   MAKE UP FOR EVER artist shadow 'I544 - pink granite' . i have this in my first "trio" of artist shadows i picked up when they first launched; but it was a replacement for a shadow that shattered. online it looks darker than i find it is in real life (though it can be built up to be darker, which is great). a pinky taupe with an iridescence that on my lid looks more like a satin. i tend to go for browns and warmer tones for everyday looks, and i forget this one exists...but as i reminded myself yesterday, this is a  fantassssstic everyday color for cooler toned looks. i find the pink (rather than a purple/blue) undertone rather flattering on my skin, and doesn't make me look dead. NARS audacious 'deborah' & BITE 'amuse bouche' whiskey . i love a dark brown lip on me. it's a great alternative to reds or purples, but i just never think about it. deb in particular is one of my very favorite lipsticks that i've only worn a couple of times. i'm gonna change this ! if and as i think of more i'll add more below
