It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

I'm sure we've all had them, haha. While I love most of my impulse buys, there are also a few pretty bad ones.   I bought a KvD studded kiss lipstick in Vampira without swatching it first, because all of the Vampira swatches I saw were fantastic. Unfortunately, I was never able to actually wear it because it was SO drying. It basically destroyed my lips and I had dead pieces of skin on my lips whenever I tried applying it. Gross. I didn't realize that the swatches I saw where the liquid lipstick, not the studded lipstick.   I also just ordered a indie lippy palette, and while I was seeing awesome reviews before, I now see HORRIBLE reviews about the colours being nothing like the swatch photos, bad customer service and how the lipstick is fine, but the lip palettes are horrible. I hope this one goes well, otherwise its $30 wasted!   Now, tell me about your bad impulse buys!

As far as beauty goes, I think that the tangerine (2012) and radiant orchid of 2014 were pretty successful.  It's just a little harder to incorporate emerald into an everyday makeup look, even though it's such a beautiful color too!  What would you love to see as the color of the year next year?  My prediction is some kind of gold.

It has been a while since we had a heart party.  If they were banned or shunned, I did not get the memo.   Anyway, my favorite moderator (I love them all, but I love her most) needs some love.  So, I hope you will join me in giving her some.     She knows why I love her so much, but I will tell the rest of you too.  She whacks the moles, uncovers missing points, answers questions no one else can and is friendly while doing it all.  There's another reason too, but I will take the 5th on that one!   Because she has a lot of beautiful hair   Because she brings on the party   But mostly because she puts up with all of us

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'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!

Las Vegas Edition 10-11-14 - (I am aware there is a current Trend Show thread.  I almost posted this there until I noticed it was in the VIB section.  At least one person asking me questions about the event will not be able to see it there, so I am going to post this in a general board).   My event finally took place yesterday. The one in May was not the trend show, so I passed.   I arrived about 15 minutes before the show started.  The doors opened 30 minutes prior, so a lot of people were already inside.  I paid over the phone with Desiree, my Beauty consultant.  My $20 gift card (you pay $20 to reserve your spot but they give it back to you in the form of a gift card) was just inside the door near valet.  After getting my gift card, I got a tote bag (not pictured but it is pretty cheap and basic) with the base samples pictured below.  The event was on the third floor.  There was an assortment of fruit, water, coffee and granola bars.  I grabbed a granola bar (which was fresh and chewy) and a bottle of water.  I filled out my information card (which they used to raffle items off and likely make sure we're on the mailing list) and turned it in.   I got a decent seat at the fashion show, because I attended solo. I thought about inviting someone but remembered focusing solely on my sister at the Rouge event and decided just to go alone. I cannot even make stuff like this up, so you know it is true. The lovely Smashbox makeup artist who spent so much time beautifying my sister at the Rouge event applied makeup for YSL at the trend show. She actually did someone to the left of me initially and moved to the right of me when she finished her. Thus, I had a chance to chat with her. She said she remembered my sister, because her sister has the same name.   The show was a lot of fun. I loved the lady from Laura Mercier. She was beyond funny. The male models were yummy eye candy. All of the female models were beautiful and very, very tall. No short models in Vegas. I loved the Kiss and Blush on the YSL model, which is ultimately why I decided to stop by that counter. A rep for one of the skincare lines gave out the item he was presenting to someone in the front row. That was pretty cool. They also had a raffle with a ton of prizes (of course I did not win any). One lady won while she was in the restroom (just like that lady at the Emmys years ago). The presenter would not let her granddaughters pick it up for her but rather held onto it until she returned and made her walk the runway in reverse to get it. I found that quite humorous, and the lady who won was so sweet.   During the show, they announced there would be free samples at La Mer. I've always wanted to try that brand. I hate buying things without trying them first (because I do not return things). Knowing there is no such thing as free and they likely left out that a purchase was required, I asked straight up if a purchase was required to get a sample. Sure enough, it was. I told her I wanted to try the item before I bought it. She said she would give me a sample if I had a consultation. I usually do not like to have consultations at events unless I know I will buy something. They're usually so busy, and I do not want to waste their time. Since I told her I wanted to sample the item before buying it, I figured she knew I was not buying anything that day when she offered. Thus, I did not feel guilty. There was no wait for the consultation either. She applied two different creams on my face and asked me which I preferred. I told her. She then went over my skin concerns and made recommendations. After the consultation, she gave me the sample as promised.   Next, I walked past Dior. They had two chairs of which both were occupied with additional people standing around. So, I kept on walking straight to YSL. They had 4-5 chairs of which one was open. I asked if they were available for a makeover, and they were. I got Joshua. He removed everything from my face (which only consisted of the newly laid La Mer cream (so I am glad I got a sample to wear it a little longer next time) and a tinted moisturizer. He applied a cream before matching me to a Fusion Ink foundation. It looked and felt great (so I ended up buying it). In direct sunlight after I left, I noticed it looked orange. I may exchange it for another color.  In his defense, it either oxidized on me or it is one of those foundations that looks different with indoor versus outdoor lighting.  Feel free to chime in if you're familiar with this foundation.     He used some concealer in spots I did not even know I needed it. Then, he applied Touche Eclat. I remember him using a lot of bronzer and a blush (which was later overwritten), but I cannot recall a setting powder. Whether he used setting powder or not, the foundation lasted all day. He then applied a purple liner and brow pencil. He used the holiday palette on my eyes, which looked so awesome that I had to buy that as well.   At that point he turned me over to National Makeup Artist, Armando Ramos. I asked Armando to pick a lip a lip color for me to buy. He chose number 11 of the Kiss and Blush, which was so stunning. I wanted to buy it on the spot, but they were out. I was going to order it online after the event (to get the 3 online samples). I also prefer to order it myself because the items do not show up in my online account (order history) when the SAs place the orders.  The SA insisted, so I let her order it for me. After Armando applied the color to my lips, he overwrote the cheek color Joshua picked out. Although I liked the one Joshua picked out, Armando's was nicer to me. Then, Armando applied some Babydoll mascara.  Both Joshua and Armando were absolutely fabulous.  I wish I could take them home with me, so my makeup would always look nice.  We all know I will never get it to look like this.   My husband and sons arrived as my makeup was being applied.  They headed up to the Nordstrom Cafe for some brunch.  When it was time to pay, I sent him down to take care of it (he almost always pays for my items anyway) while I joined the boys in the restaurant.         The freebies I got for attending the trend show (plus the free La Mer sample for the consultation)     The YSL items I purchased and GWPs     The items I purchased unboxed     The inside of the beautiful holiday palette     I had a lot of fun and cannot wait to go next year.  Fingers crossed that I win something, because I am sure winning always makes the event more fun.  If you have a chance to go, you should.  You get your money back in the gift card, plus samples, snacks, a chance to win prizes, plenty of GWPs and the really fun fashion show.  Go!

The sands of time are ever passing, and as they do, sometimes the looks that were prolific or popular at the time become horrifying in hindsight.   Whether you rocked frosted hair in the 70's, powder blue eyeshadow in the 80's, or brick brown lipstick in the 90's, or anywhere between or beyond, what makeup look do you look back on now and cringe over?   To get the ball rolling, I will offer up my own horror story.     I was raised by my dad, so I didn't really have many women around to teach me about makeup.  In middle school I used to drastically over tweeze my eyebrows for that Sailor Moon look.  I had grad and confirmation coming up and had to get pictures taken, so I decided it would be a good idea to draw my eyebrows in for the pictures.  I didn't know any better, so I colored  them in  with a black eyeliner .  Every time I see those pictures, it looks like someone came along with a sharpie and just wiped it across my face.  Also, I didn't understand arching, so they are literally two stick straight lines on my face.   If I can dig it up, I will post a pic for all to see and have a good laugh over.     Now it's your turn... what was your greatest makeup blunder?

Right now, my packages aren't arriving fast enough. It's not all make up, and not all Sephora.  I'm leaving tomorrow, for over a week, so if they don't come by tomorrow afternoon, I can't play with my new stuff til next week! 2 things were supposed to arrive today, 2 tomorrow.     The package I cared the least about (clothes) came today.  The package I was supposed to get today's tracking info hasn't updated in days, and still says it's supposed to be delivered today.  It's USPS and the mail already came so I'm a little annoyed I don't know where it's at.    I'm basically acknowledging the ridiculousness of being frustrated about stupid packages arriving/not arriving...and thought, I can't be alone in having "trivial" issues/annoyances.

A while back I had made a look using the colors of the stray cat that took shelter in my home, I've fed and given her water ever since. This is the second time she's had kittens, unfortunately the last litter didn't survive and from what I know she only had two this time but only one has made it to the barely opening eyes stage. She had them on July 1st. I haven't named the kitty yet, but here's a picture of his(I'm thinking it's a he) cuteness.  Taken today.    It's been 2 months and 7 days since little neko was born. Here is his updated picture, he posed for it. He posed a lot.

Is anyone else up stalking the Lorac MegaPro palette this morning? It's one of the few holiday items I have been really looking forward to this year, so I'm stalking hardcore! (It's only available on Lorac's website and Amazon shop. Rumor on FB is it will drop at 9amPST/11amEST.)   Hands up if you're a member of the MegaPro Stalkers!!   Oh, and if you see it finally become available on those sites, please for the love of all things, let us all know so we can get some MegaPro lovin' too!   Edit: As of approx 11:30amEST, it's up on the Lorac site, but checkout is REALLY SLOW! No sign of it on Amazon yet though.

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)

  So I was picking up my check which is not a lot.... the middle of the month is when I pay all my bills and well. Now I have to go and buy new frames cause this happened and even with tape, it makes my vision all wonky which I know leads to headaches and it's potentially just bad for your vision.. even though its bad enough already. I accidentally scraped a post with the left view mirror when I was at the bank. Hahaha....... okay not funny. So I'm left with 156 bucks and after I pay for these glasses which they told me it was 80 some and I know that's going to come up to 90.. I won't be left with enough money to make holiday purchases this month. It's going to fail because we all know how hard it is to want something and not being able to have instant gratification. Umph! Anyways, I just wanted to vent because my mother went off on me for wasting money at Sephora and whatnot.  I think I should be able to spend money where I want since it is money I gain, even though it's little. At least I'm not doing bad things!

Exactly what the title says I know we've chatted about this before, but I thought I'd revive the topic with a new thread. With Chic Week coming up and new collections/products/lines dropping what feels like every day, what brands (collections, too, since Sephora's offering can be limited at the brand's discretion) do you wish you saw on shelves?   For me, it would be Chanel, Tom Ford, and YSL's Spring collection. Chanel's Illusion d'Ombres (cream shadows) and Glossimers (lip glosses) are calling to me with their siren song, as are Tom Ford's lippies, quads and contour palettes (however exorbitantly priced!!!). I love YSL lippies, so I wish the new colors got some love here at Sephora.    Oh, and while we're on the subject, ByTerry and Chantecaille wouldn't hurt, either! I adore both, and don't own nearly enough of either!

This is a second round of a box, so there is a HUGE variety in here, so much great stuff (thank you previous participants!!). Very exciting to start a box that is such a great mix to start with.

This will be US only.   I had a lot of fun [in a stressful kind of way I suppose] last year and wanted to see if anyone would be interested in doing this again!     ❤❤ The Rundown   ❤  Same as last year, we will be using elfster do conduct the exchange. It's very easy, convenient, does a random draw, lets you make a wishlist, and allows for the asking of anonymous questions so you don't have to wonder 'will they hate this color or not...'.     You will have to add your address to elfster, but no one will see it except for the person who is your santa.    Let me know you are interested and I will message you the group URL.   ❤❤ Gifting Rules   ❤  The minimum is $35 and there is no max. Now note, it doesn't have to be a single item that is $35. It can be multiple items from off of the persons wishlist that total up to be $35.   ❤ Feel free to add random goodies to your box to make it more personal, not a requirement, but just throwing it out there that you can.     ❤❤ Deadlines   ❤ To Sign Up: November 14th. Names will be drawn on November 15th and elfster will send you an email with who you got. ❤ To Send Gift: December 12th. Gifts will need to be sent by or on this date.     If you have any questions feel free to post them here or shoot me a PM.   Thanks everyone! Looking foreword to it.

I'm curious to see everyone's 4-legged companions! I've seen them mentioned in several posts and am always happy to see other's pets! I myself have 3 kitties and ride 2 horses (whom I like to call my own )   All 3 of the kitties were rescues! The orange one is Palmer - was found at a motel dumpster and brought into the vet clinic I worked at, the black and white tuxedo is Squeakers - she was dropped off at my barn when she was 6 weeks old! and the white one is Seuss - I helped raise him since newborn baby kitten hood, and fostered 3 of his siblings   So, show us your furry (or feathery) friends!
