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....   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Day 1, 11/10/14 - Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose.

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?!?!

Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need. I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   * Any larger items (full-size perfume, larger body care, larger skincare, large palettes) * Must* be proposed first before adding to your trade. If the next 2-3 people arent interested, please switch that item out.  * The box needs to stay USPS medium or large rate. If you can't fit it, swap out a larger item to make room.     Don't ■ Don't keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (Also you MUST include a tracking number)  ■ Don't put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB.  ■ Don't put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. ■ Don't swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items. ■ Don't take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value. Price everything out.   Do ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. Label only on this thread not on actual item. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it ♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly. ♥ Please post a photo and your proposed trade before shipping the box. That way members can weigh in on the trade.     Allowed: ☆ Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!) ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)   Not allowed: ☆Pre-made samples ☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze) ☆Heavily used items ☆ Drugstore items ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   Make sure total of what you put in is equal or above what you put out.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).    roxystar ------>  USPS Tracking  9405509699938106322064 1.

Much in the thread of Greenchili's Lipstick Challenge and Meg's Blush Challenge, I've decided to take on my own personal palette challenge!  When I looked into my palette box today to pick out a look, I was overwhelmed with choice and finally made my selection based on "well, I haven't worn that for awhile."    I've got lots of beauties that are completely neglected, and I'd like to stop that immediately.  Please feel free to join me for your total collection, 30 days, or however long you'd like. It's cold outside, so why not break up the monotony of winter by mixing it up?   Day 1, 1/18/15: Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in 03 Nude Dip (used 3 lightest to balance out my accidental clown cheeks) Day 2, 1/19/15: Tarina Tarantino Jewel Shadow Palette in Diamond Dusk (used 4 of 5 shades) Day 3, 1/20/15: Tarina Taraninto Jewel Shadow Palette in Magical Day 4, 1/21/15: Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color 02 She Wolf Day 5, 1/22/15: Burberry Complete Eye Palette 15 Sage Green Day 6, 1/23/15: Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette Day 7, 1/24/15: Burberry Complete Eye Palette 10 Rose Pink Day 8, 1/25/15: MAC Stowaways Quad

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)

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 ?

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?

Musings of a muse posted about this game on her blog and I thought it would be a fun thing for us to do together! Also because we've just entered a new year, it might help us look at our collections and habits a bit more critically. Please join me, I'd love to see all of your answers!   Greed : What’s your most expensive beauty item?   Wrath: What item do you have a love/hate relationship with? Gluttony: What brand takes up most of your collection? Sloth: What product do you neglect the most due to laziness? Pride: What product gives you the most confidence? Lust: Which item is top of your beauty wish list? Envy: Which makeup product/look is great on others but not on you?

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.

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.

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!

As 2014 comes to a close, I have resolved to actually  use  my samples in 2015. I've seen some other ladies make similar statements on here as well.  So... I've established "Sample Saturday". Every Saturday I plan to pick a sample (or two) and use it!  I thought this would be a fun way for me to use my sample stash and I wanted a way to record my thoughts so I thought I'd start a thread.    If you want to play along, grab a sample and let's get going!  I thought we could post what product we are trying and our first impressions, adding follow up information when necessary.    Tonight I am trying:   * Phyto Tous Cheveux Secret De Nuit; Intense Hydration Regenerating Night Cream First impression: It's not heavy or greasy, as I thought it would be. I applied it to towel-dried hair after I got out of the shower.  I like that it's not heavy but so far I don't feel like it's moisturizing my hair at all. I applied extra to the ends of my hair as they are very dry and damaged (I need a haircut). We shall see how my hair feels in the morning!   * Stella Body Lotion (from the delight promo) First impression: This lotion smells lovely but it's really watery and I don't feel like it moisturizes my skin at all. I prefer heavy lotions and wear primarily body butters. It smells amazing and is by far my best smelling lotion, it's just too watery and lightweight for me. I will, however, continue to use it because it smells so *$#^ delicious! =0) We'll see if my skin feels moisturized in the morning. 
Things We Didn't Buy.jpg

So we all have heard the usual regrets of buying a product. But the real question is, what do you regret NOT buying? Whether it's limited edition or it just sold out - what do you wish you could rewind time and have taken your chances of buying a product? Makeup, clothing, cars, whatever!   Mine would be the Tom Ford Nude Dip, I thought it was extremely expensive, but after look seeing it again after months, checking online and seeing it sold out + being a seasonal product made me totally regret not buying it when I had the chance!

So with the Transformation thread being resurfaced and all the talk about eating healthy and making home-cooked meals,  I thought that we could share some recipes with each other! I know there are a few floating around in lylysa's What's On Your Plate thread but I thought we could drop them in one place   I used to love looking up new recipes for meals to make with my (ex) SO and haven't been doing that lately, but I'd really like to get back into cooking. I know quite a few of you are vegetarian/vegan and I'd love to see your recipes as well!   I'll start off with a really simple one. This is a super easy salad dressing recipe that I found not too long ago that tastes great and seems pretty healthy.       Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing   3 tablespoons whole grain mustard 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons vinegar (white wine, apple cider, red wine, or coconut) salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste       *Transformation thread  Rouge Only  ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB-ROUGE/Transfor mation-Support-Thread-Rouge-Only/td-p/1136805 )   *What's On Your Plate thread ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/What-s-o n-your-plate/m-p/430729/highlight/true#M10719 )

I have just gotten into makeup and I would love to know the basics that I must have. They can be cult classics, or niche finds. I have a weakness for minis and value sets. Keep in mind that I am not allowed to wear a ton of makeup, so bold eyeshadows and eyeliners are not allowed by my mother. Please post your holy grail products!

Am I the only one that freaks out with every birthday that passes. I dont know what it is, I cant explain it. After i Hit 20-21... whenever my birthday is approaching i have serious anxiety. When it passes I almost feel depressed. Not enough for anyone to notice or to really affect me, but I just hate aging. LOL does anyone else feel or get like this? My birthday is approaching in February and I can already feel the anxiousness when I think about it.

Now that the weather is getting colder (in most places) more of us are switching to hot tea, coco, etc. So lets share - who is drinking what (from teas, to coffees to even wines, etc), post a pic if you would like ; other wise just specify the name of your beverage  and continue to enjoy it     My husband woke me up with a hot tea  for breakfast. It was Green Mint Tea - now I feel refreshed, awake but still not ready for this day !!!

Favorite Barney's product recs welcome!  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!), and so I'm filling my Favorites list to get to the minimum...     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).  If you have rumors or insider info let me know!   Here are some pics of previous Love Yourself February Bags :   (2012 and 2014)

I know most of us got quite a collection of skincare and makeup items. Is there any item you always reach for no matter how many products you have? For me, they are FAB ultra repair cream, Cle de Peau Concealer, Shiseido cotton pads and MUFE aqua liner. What are yours?

Hey fellow BT's. So I know of the posts showing makeup storage and vanity setups, but I thought it would be fun to show all the little extras other than makeup that we put in our beauty rooms or area that make them that much more beautiful.  Yesterday I found this beeeeautful candle holder (or that's what I made it anyway) at home sense. It's gorgeous. The camera doesn't do it justice. It sparkles like crazy. HAPPY SHARING! Feel free to post where you bought the item and how much.

I just wanna ask what companies give out free samples when you contact them. I only know of Mario Badescu and L'occitane.   Who doesn't love free samples anyway?
