Was asked to post an updated thread. Let's continue the fun shall we? What are you wearing today? 1. nars sheer glow foundation, mont blanc 2. perricone md no bronzer bronzer 3. urban decay eyeshadow primer potion, original 4. too faced chocolate bar palette 5. benefit theyre real mascara 6. rimmel london stay matte powder, natural 7. benefit dallas 8. nars blush, sin 9. buxom full on lipstick, las vegas
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....

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?!?!
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? FRAGRANCE: **To redeem for Gucci Flora By Gucci Gorgeous Gardenia MAKEUP: SKINCARE: BRUSHES ETC:
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). If you have rumors or insider info let me know! I am eagerly anticipating the Feb Barney's GWP, which is one of the best I've ever gotten.

I love buying beautiful powders, and the fact that they perform well is a bonus. However, most of the time the beauty is on the powder itself and goes awway after use.....but it look so pretty on the face it's a shame not to use it......but it look so gorgeous in the pan it is a shame to ruin the embossing/color..... The item in question for me is Guerlain Parure de Nuit, which I KNOW I won't be able to finish in the next 3 years if I use it. It's already a bit smeared after a few use and I'd hate to ruin the gorgeous peacock pattern. I kind of want a back up so I can use my current one without worry, but it's produced at least a year ago and buying a $50+ something that I might not use for another 2 or 3 years is...... Do you ever have such dilemma? Back up of something pretty just so you can use the current one without guilt?
This afternoon I was playing around with my cart - I added a few things that I'm really lusting after and then I had a thought - What if someone told me that I could have the ultimate Sephora shopping spree and get every single thing that I want? Money is no object. There are a lot of things I would buy, especially if my shopping spree took place in store. I added everything that I would buy online to my cart and I'm rather surprised that it's only $1500.00 worth of stuff. There are a few things that I want that are OOS, but for the most part this is everything. Here's what I would buy. What would you get?

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)
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?
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.

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.
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 ?
lipstick teeth ? goopy eye gunk ? vent about it here ! i've had 2 such instances in the past 24 hours. such a glamorous life. i was just at the grocery store, jaunting around feeling fabulous in my new NARS audacious Grace lipstick. when i checked out, the checkout girl told me i had lipstick on my face. somewhere in between my nose and my eye . how it got there, and how long it had been there, god only knows. yesterday , i was on a motorcycle. i went into sephora to exchange something. feeling fine, feeling great. only to catch my reflection and see i had black smeared all over my eyes and even a bit down my face: i suppose my eyes had gotten a bit watery on the bike and it just wasn't something i had taken into consideration when applying my makeup that morning. sigh. so. my name is jemly, and i'm a mess. it happens to us all. feel free to relieve the pressure of embarrassment here !
Ladies, our dear BT community member mygreathair12 (Dan) is going through a difficult time right now. He asked me to share with those who wanted to know that his biopsy yesterday discovered a bit more cancerous growth than anticipated, and also some white spots. He is focussing on that right now, but asked me to reach out to those who had asked about him. I really think Dan could use a big bunch of all our love and support right now as he goes through this difficult time. I'm sure most of us have been touched in some way by cancer at one point or another, so you probably know how much any little bit of support can mean to someone. Please pop in and leave some positive energy for Dan when you have a moment. Dan, we're all thinking of you!!! Stay strong!
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.

In a couple of weeks, the ladies at my church are having a get together to get to know each other better. I've only been there for a month, so this will be my first gathering with them. They are asking that everyone in attendance brings 5 of their favorite things. They said total we should spend $25-30 to put together the five things. And somehow, I don't know if it'll be a game or what. But we are going to exchange things with other ladies. So I am trying to put together a list of my 5 things. So far I have: -Red nail polish (I'm hoping Ulta will have CG Ruby Pumps in stock for this) -Cadbury chocolate (I'm going to try to find the Fruit & Nut bar it is my absolute favorite) -Lipstick (Obviously most of my favorite lipsticks would eat up my whole budget, but I do have an NYX High Voltage lipstick that I've really been loving) I'm trying to decide on the final two things. If I can find a way to represent them and stay in my budget, I would like to do something to show my love for baseball and something for the Marvel universe. What would your five things be?
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON Tarte now ships to Canada!
I saw a lot of people posting in the "Found in the wild New" post about Lime Crime now being sold at Sephora. It seems like there are a lot of strong opinions because of the controversy surrounding this brand so I thought it would be fun if it had its own topic. So what are your thoughts on Lime Crime now being sold at Sephora? edit: I want to apologize for creating another thread on this. I didn't realize it had already been talked about! I should of looked it up first, so again, I'm sorry.
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. 2/25/15 - RIP Demi
So, I passed the 10k already. Wow! Thank you guys, please feel free to post so I can shower you with hearts! Don't be afraid to post many times Honestly though, 10k hearts. I remember when I was under 1k.. last year? I don't know how I discovered this place but you guys have really been a great blessing in my life. Not only do I feel good about sharing what I put on my face, but I get a lot of laughs with you guys, and even sometimes a tear here and there. Thank you all so much for generously clicking on my stuff! lol
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.
I'm really sorry to post this on here but I need to unload this to someone otherwise I'll cause a scene at work. I just got a text that one of my oldest friend's grandmother just passed away. I have known their family my whole life. I didn't get to meet my own grandparents because they lived overseas and passed away early on (my dad's parents passed when he was young and my mom's passed while I was young) This lady who just passed was like a grandmother to me. I spent so much time visiting with her over the years. She always treated me like I really was her granddaughter. I'm not personally close to many people. I don't like people to get too close to me but I had a real soft spot in my heart for her. The last few years her health had been very poor and she was in a nursing home (she was over 90). When I would visit her it would take everything I have to keep it together in front of her. She was a shell of her former self. She couldn't speak and hardly eat. But she always recognized me and she always kissed me when I came. I know death is a part of life and we all have to go some time but it's still hard to deal with when someone this close passes. I'm sorry for this emotional post. I just can't help myself right now.
I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well! I'll start things off! Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask
Thought this might be fun for today... what was your first job that you actually got paid to do? It was the summer I turned 15 and I worked at a concession stand in my neighborhood park. I got really good at making sno-cones and cotton candy!
