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?
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
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 ...
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?!?!
Just starting this new thread to keep us updated on all new collections, launches and releases for Summer; following up the Spring Collections thread you can check out here http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Spring-2015-Collections/td-p/1825800 I’ll leave here what we already found for this upcoming summer season MAC Wash and Dry LE Spoiler (Highlight to read) Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkins Summer 2015 (found by lachaton) Guerlain Summer by Terracotta 2015 Fall Collections - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /FALL-2015-COLLECTIONS/m-p/1927188#M95163
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last. If I last 30 days, maybe I will go longer. Ha...lets see if I last 2 weeks. Anybody else? I am quite excited about it....

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!
APRIL 12 - 21 FOR VIB ROUGE APRIL 16 - 21 FOR VIBS APRIL 17 - 20 FOR BI 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? Opinions on these products? (repurchasing these pills.. gone through 4 bottles already.. love them!)
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!
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
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:
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 !
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)
Anything ever happen that just instantly brightens up your day/week/month? Recently I've been going through a rough patch but this morning my mother handed me some money and told me she was sorry for the way she acted. I no longer have to sell my game systems to try and make some payments, at least minimum. If I pay minimum.. more money for makeup. Logic. >_> I will be able to buy some items that I've had my eye on! And make an exchange too while I'm at it. This is one huge load off my shoulders because I think if you don't make a payment in time you get charged for a late fee which would've just been bad.
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?
I had to update my totals... So YTD as of 3/22 I have spent at Sephora $76 and at ULTA $492 and at department/brand stores about $800... Normally I would have spent a lot more at Sephora by now but TBH none of the rewards or perks have really made me want to buy anything from Sephora... Even with the flash 2 day, I still find myself going to ULTA or Macy's or the brands site because of the GWP incentives... I have spent so much money at Sephora the last couple of years and I think I am finally getting to a point where its few and far between because the perks just don't do anything for me anymore...
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.
Updates & FAQs: HERE IS THE MARCH 2015 (Ladies') BAG ! Barney's Spring Bag Event is: March 10-14, 2015! SA's in stores (all beauty counters at Barneys locations) are accepting pre orders NOW. The order amount for the GWP is $200 this time (not $250!). Want to order from an SA in store? Scroll down in the thread for ordering info/SA contact information. Brand information: There are some brands NOT sold on Barney's website that are available if you place an order with an SA through a brick and mortar store . We are working to compile a list. *I contacted the Beverly Hills Barney's location by phone but they were unable to give me any information on beauty brands not on the website that are available in store. Yuck. *I talked with Anna O. in Apothecary at Barney's BH, but she said she didn't know anything about Barney's.com and couldn't tell me what brands they offered that weren't online. *I have left a message with the concierge at Barney's New York - Manhattan flagship store asking specifically for a list of beauty brands sold in store so I can compare myself (or if they know which ones are in store that are not available on Barneys.com that would be great, but after talked to BH location I doubt it), we will see if they call me back. Update: They never returned my call. *I have emailed Barneys CS to ask about beauty brands sold in store - no answer. Update: still no answer. *I also emailed Irene, she did confirm no Guerlain or Tom Ford cosmetics. Chanel - Even thought it's not available on Barney's website, it is available to order through an SA in store (see the thread for more information). Tom Ford - I believe fragrances are available through Barney's in store and online; cosmetics are not (not even through an SA in store). Guerlain - It seems like this brand is not available (not even through an SA in store). Shu Uemera - Online reviews say this brand can be purchased through the Barney's Chicago store. Please post your additional info in the thread and I can update this FAQ list. ************* Favorite Barney's product recs welcome! Let's discuss our favorite products they offer, our wish lists, and what we'll be ordering to get the GWP! The backstory: Spoiler (Highlight to read) I am eagerly anticipating the Feb Barney's GWP, which is one of the best I've ever gotten. I'm going to place a pre-order with the NYC store (through the store it seems even better/get extras!). I'm filling my Barney's Favorites list online to keep track, as I pull together my order... I have been putting off other purchases and saving my pennies! I will stock up on a few basics, and a few news/splurges. Cash has been tight for me the last 6-9mos, so I have been really looking forward to this purchase. What are you thinking of getting? What products do you love that are sold at Barneys? Recommendations - want to trys!? This is the place to get excited with me... P.S. I don't think the official word is out on the dates (previously their big twice-annual GWP have started on Wed or Thurs, and the last two years this one started on Feb 10, and Feb 13th... so I'm thinking if I'm lucky this Love Yourself bag will start Feb 11 or 12, 2015).

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!
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.

Prepare for road trips or hanging out poolside with this skin-renewing set. The Face Cleanser removes surface oils, makeup, and dirt—cleaning and calming the skin. Reduce dry patches and redness with the Ultra Repair Liquid Recover, and then smooth on the Skin Rescue Purifying Mask, a peel-off treatment that works to detox and purify the complexion.

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
Keep your hair maintenance to a minimum with amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. Formulated to absorb oils, it gives your hair some serious body, and is the perfect refresher in-between shampoos. Essential for the jet-setter or the beach bum, this dry shampoo can be misted onto tresses to create an ultra-soft, cleansed look and feel. I like to apply it just before bed to absorb any dirt that could be weighting my hair down so that I’m readily prepared for my adventure by morning.
What's new on the site that's caught your eye this week? Show and Tell!
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.
When reading through responses on various threads, I've seen people mention that they are overseas on business trips. I've also seen people reference schooling and their major/program. I'm curious what everyone does for a living. It appears that beauty addicts come from all walks of life. I am an Intensive Supervision Probation Officer. I supervise felony offenders. What do you do? Or what are you studying?
You know how sometimes you see something you REALLY REALLY WANT, or fell in love at first sight, but does not have the fund or justification for getting them due to price/your stash no matter how much you tried? or it was released 5yrs before you wanted and not available anywhere? Do you have anything like that and what are they? Sulwhasoo is another Asian brand that have recently reached popularity in US, but while browsing their skincare line, I stumbled upon their powders and HOLY MOLY! Look at this packaging! That's from Bergdorf Goodman for $150. I've got 3 compact and 4 jars of meteorites so I absolutely cannot justify it. But at least you can buy it if you want to, I don't even know where to buy this one: That is up on their brand website. Another pretty that I would totally get if available but unfortunately is not is the Dior Lace powder compact: Image curtesy of Beautylish. There's another absolutely stunning, ridiculously intricate/gorgeous Chanel eyeshadow compact that I saved an image of but can't find right now, will share eye candy later. But anyways, what is your dream beauty purchase?
