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:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

Ulta GWPs
This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only.  Share ulta promos here.     11/19/16: Please do not post replies asking for links to the spreadsheet or replies saying messages have been sent.  If everyone posts a request, we end up with pages of noise and it takes away from the main purpose of this thread: sharing Ulta GWPs.     Instead, please pm someone who you know already has the link.  Obviously, everyone who has requested it and everyone who has responded that they've sent it has the link.    You can also message @keepra , the creator of the spreadsheet, or myself.     Please, no more replies about the spreadsheet in this thread.  Thank you for your consideration!   ************************************************** *******     Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and add product id numbers and sku numbers so people can search for items on ulta.     *****Just to clarify, there is an item number that Ulta lists on the website, right under the picture of the item.   The product id is the number given to the item in the URL.  So Ulta's site follows this formula of having the url and then the very last part of the url is "productId=xlsImpprod" followed by an 8 digit number.  If you use that "productId" number you can get to the page of any item on ulta.  It's not a search, but a direct link to the page.*****   Side note: BT's TOS states " No solicitation.  Please do not use these forums to submit or publish any marketing communication, or to advertise or solicit for any business or enterprise. Direct links to other commercial websites are inappropriate for our BeautyTalk conversations. Those postings will be removed, and can result in the suspension of your access to these services.

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.   http://www.sephora.com/search/saleResults.jsp?keyw 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!

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)

Goodbye My December Play! Box 😡
I can't believed this happened so I just have to share...   spoiler... Not a happy ending   Ok, here it goes. I am play box subscriber and have been ever since it was opened to NY. I got an email on 12/4 saying that my payment was declined and telling me that I need to update my new payment info by 12/7 in order to received my December box. I realized that the payment method was an old card so I went ahead and updated it the next day (12/5) and placed an order while I was at it. No problem. Received that order on 12/7, again no problem.    On 12/8 I received another email stating it was final notice and that my payment method was declined again. I called the number on the email right away, told them I updated my payment method and asked why I'm getting this email about the decline of payment. She said she tried to charge my card again and it stated error.  I asked her if she's using the new card info I updated and she said yes and told me there's nothing she can do and that I should contact my financial institute. I told her it's impossible and asked her to confirm the last 4 digits of the card used. She told me no, and told me again I should contact my financial institute and there's nothing she can do. I then asked to speak with her supervisor.     When the supervisor got on the phone, the first thing she did was apologizing that person I was on the call earlier was a trainee and she will be helping me. I gave her the whole 9 yards and she said that she understands and she again she's not able to process my credit card and I should contact my financial institute. I told her I made an order the same day and I even received my package so there's definitely nothing wrong with my card and so she verified my latest transaction. She said she checked the payment method and even its the same as the payment method on file but she's still getting error when processing my credit card and she told me I should contact my financial institute and there's nothing she can do. With all the holding time the call took almost an hour....    The following morning, I contacted my bank and asked why they declined the charge. My bank said there's no record of such initiation in the amount nor the vendor I mentioned. I spent another hour on the phone and all they could tell me is that I updated the main and not the play section of the payment method and that's why the payment didn't go through. So all the change initiation went to my old card and that's why it's not going through. And at this point there's nothing that can be done to add me back to the list for the December box. NOTHING!!! That process took another hour...   I can not explain my fraustration, and it does not help when the Sephora rep just kept emphasizing to me that it's ok because I was not charged for it... No miss, it's NOT ok. I want my December box!!   So ladies and gents make sure you update the play! section of payment method if this ever happened to you because you might not understand why until you spend hours on the call and at that time it's too late for you to get that month's box....   sincerely,  an extremely upset Sephora customer

The RBF/BRF TSB: Holiday Edition
  **This is by invite only; all participants are already identified**   Hey ladies!!!! It's that time of year again! Now that we've all used our Friends and Family codes and Rouge discounts, let's pass along some of our unused stuff. Last years Invite Only TSB ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /By-Invite-Fall-Winter-TSB/m-p/2182116/highlight/t ... ) went so well I decided it was a good idea to do it all over again!      Like the Queens above, I have the rep around BT lately of having RBF/BRF! I'm turning my perceived indifference and attitude into kindness. One new caveat to this TSB: I am not keeping ANYTHING at the end of this; all the proceeds after the last trade go directly to charity.   Many of you know I work with Believe in Tomorrow, a charity servicing families at Johns Hopkins whose children are receiving treatment. The Invite Only TSB last year did SO WELL that they are still stacked with stuff! This year the left over abundance will go to The Katherine Hanley Center, a charity @SuzeAlex works with. Their mission is to provide temporary housing to homeless families in the Fairfax Co, VA area. They receive services that help them formulate a plan to locate permanent house as quickly as possible. The shelter is an integral part to the county's 10 year plan to end homelessness.     TSB Best Practices:  Spoiler (Highlight to read) http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight ... http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight /true#M59515 This TSB Rules:  Spoiler (Highlight to read) - This is a Mid Range to Luxe, New/ Gently Used TSB - Includes everything from Benefit to Tom Ford and above.  - TSB includes Skincare, Makeup, Tools, Perfume - We are trading like for like WITH THE EXCEPTION of members who are shippers Internationally.

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 !

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!
