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!
I went to sephora today and a very sweet lady gave me a free full on facial. She asked me if I could give her a shoutout on sephora's website, but I didn't realize, until now, that I don't know how to give a shoutout. She said it will give her points and I would love to give her those points since the facial was free and I couldn't pay her. Please let me know how to give her a shoutout!
I was thinking about the number of highlighters I have and then I wondered 'what's my total haul over time?' So I added everything up... 5 Foundations 15 Blushes 2 Concealers 3 Bronzers 9 Highlighters 2 Finishing powders 195 Eye shadows (15 singles, 113 in palettes, 57 in customizable palettes, and 10 pencil shadows) 60 eyeliners (51 liners, 3 double ended liners, 2 liquid and one rim liner) 2 Brow gels This is all active makeup - not stuff I've set aside for maybe trades, and does not include any backups. I forgot to count my lip stuff, I will have to do that later! What do you have?
Hello beauties!! I just wanted to wish you all a beautiful Women's Day today! It is time to celebrate our inside and outside beauty... because we are ALL beautiful!!! Have a wonderful day ladies! And don't forget that you are amazing and beautiful!!!
I got my Nordstrom card online and I couldn't resist using it right away on makeup. I've heard a lot of people rave about Nordstrom's and how much better they are than Sephora but I need details! So far, they have the standard 3 free samples that don't look any different than Sephora's but their rewards program is a bit on the high side. I think they said 2000 points puts you on the lower level. But anyway, I bought a whole bunch of Burberry lipsticks and eye shadow palette as well as my standard 5 million Nars products that I've never purchased before because I didn't think the colors were right but Nordstrom's color charts seem to be better than Sephora's. More true to color but I may be wrong. I even picked up a MAC lippie.. But I've never tried Burberry before so I wanted to get the opinion of those who use it. I picked up 3 of the Velvet Matte lipsticks and the Soft Satin lippie. I also picked up the Beauty Complete Eye Palette. While it is expensive, is it worth it? And I was eyeing some Tom Ford's. How is that?
Hey Ladies, I'm just curious what you personally prefer, natural makeup look or makeup with extra color/pop? Also, which do you think guys/your boyfriend prefer? This is totally just for the fun of it!
Beware this is pic heavy! This is an unfiltered-terribly-shot-photo pictorial.... No sun today, it was rainy so you get the icky flash...There are some funky eyeball shots in here... continue if you dare *evil laugh* *Okay, nekkid eye -gross. Lets prime those bad boys with TooFaced Shadow insurance. Next cover that nekkid lid with a base- I chose Nyx jumbo eye pencil in milk.... blend it all out. *Start in the inner corner with yellow (brands don't matter any one will work), pack on turquoise in the middle and navy in the outer end. I make a v because i'm funky like that. Next I took a thin shadow brush, turned it sideways and start working inward. *After I put down my navy shade I went back over and packed on more color and used my little spongy friend to blend the colors together. I mostly just took the teal color and patted it gently in the transition areas- I didn't smudge them together, just touched the applicator gently and applied the teal until they were blended. * Now for the purple.....(pat-pat the color and tap-tap on the desk to knock off extra) I loaded my brush with color and put the brush down once on my lid. Then I made a swish with the color that was on my lid. I just kept gently working until I had the color blended down to the navy color. *back and forth 400 times ought to do it*.....I used the brush and my spongy friend to blend. *White goes in the brow bone area, and a big fluffy brush blends them all together. (because colors are happy when they get blended) *Now its time to give the bottom lid some love. Same color pattern as the top. I used my finger to blend them because all the sudden I have gotten lazy. *Top the lashes with a line of liquid... lining the waterline and tightline with a waterproof pencil. Do not get all panicky when you and your liner have an argument. We will fix wonky bugger later.... *Clean up the tail with a q-tip, curl those bad mama-jamma's, pop on some mascara, and apply some entirely awesome falsies. Because as bombshell says, they can make you conquer the world. *wink* *Now, I decided that I didn't have enough pink on so I adjusted the color. I straightened out that argument me and my liner had and added glitter to the brows.... (because glittery brows make you fancy) Aaaaand VOILA! There you go! Before and after: Products used: Toofaced shadow insurance Nyx jumbo pencil in milk *drumroll......* Wet-n-wild palette in "poster child" (yes its true!) Sugarpill shadows 2am (purple) and tako (white) Kat von D tattoo liner Marc Jacobs highliner Red Cherry lashes #82 Armani eyes to kill mascara Urban Decay glitter liner in distortion My cheap little spongy buddies and some random brushes. It doesn't matter what kind----any will do. and omg- now you have the longest post in the entire history. Thanks for looking! xoxo Calamity~
I'm not sure about this but I think my crush likes me! He finally came back to school after 3 weeks! He's messaged me several times on Facebook this past week (without me messaging him first) as well. The day he came back I was wearing a mix of MAC Heroine and Punk Couture on my lips and he told me he liked it a lot, it was really bold and daring (in his eyes) and not a lot of girls can rock purple lips. I also caught him staring at me again. I noticed every time I did, his ears would turn red and he would look away really fast. I don't really talk to anyone in our Ceramics class since I am very shy unless they ask me for help or if they need something. We hung out once outside of class and got to know each other a little bit. What do you ladies think?
I know similar posts have gone around....but when do you know your stash of make up/ skin care/ body care is a bit....ummmm....well-stocked? I know mine is because my sister stayed with us for a weekend and went to grab a towel out of the linen closet and says "geeze...you must be a philosophy consultant or something!" Haha...made me laugh, but I went through my stash and handed her a bunch of stuff to try...now she's in love with philosophy too!
Guess What ? I am ALMOST a VIP ROGUE !!!!!!! ~ ONLY 127 Points to go!!!!! lol Anyone else have any happy, exciting, but personal excitement that is more than likley pointless to anyone else on our SEPHORA BOARDS !!!!
I'd rather buy La Mer than spend my $$ going out tonight :x Normally my beauty hauls don't have much La Mer products in there thats why I decided to post this one because I am very excited to add to my La Mer collection!! Also SO excited to play around with the Naked 3 palette!!

So Glam Glow is having a sale where it's items are 20% with code "GLAM20" i just thought i share...to me it's not worth it because with the shipping i'm only saving 8 bucks. just visit their site and click on products.
Starting to feel left out seeing all the newest members introducing themselves, so here goes... Hi, I'm Anne. I am 29 years old and I live in Ohio with my husband and two dogs- a miniature wiener dog and a sheepdog. I have recently completed nursing school but have not passed the state board licensure yet. I currently work in retail. To me, makeup is a means of stress relief. It's something I look forward to every day like a creative outlet. I'm into bright colors and trying new things. I love BT because it gives me a chance to share this passion with others who understand it. I am still new to things; I've learned a lot in just a couple months but I still have so much more to learn. So here's looking forward to a bright BT future! I'm sure you'll see me around
Dear Beauty/Makeup Holics! I just became a VIB member and am THIS close to making VIB Rouge. Its one of the most exciting things to happen to me....aside from getting married. I recently heard about an annual 20% off sale. Is this true? Why have I never heard of this before? If any of you are in Canada, can you please let me know when the even will be this year? Also, are there any special items that Sephora puts out for this event? Can I make purchases online too, or is this event in store exclusively? Also, do I need a promo code or can I just bring my VIB member card? Is this event open to everyone or just for Insider members? I'm so excited and couldn't sleep last night just thinking about all the items in my basket I wish to purchase!
I have a US post box..But I live in Canada. My dilemma is My CAD cart is 134, my USA cart is 110. If I order it to the USA, I save 24 bucks, and I get my package like..at least a week faster. And good chance I won't pay duty. If I order to CAD, I get charged 24 more, it takes a week or two longer to get my package, and may get charge duty. US is kind of a hassle.. But is it worth it?? Huge First World Problem, WWYD?
Hello everyone! My name is Julie and this is my first post. I'm a Rouge level and I decided for Lent that I will not only give up chocolate, but also not do any Sephora, Ulta, Sally Beauty and Merle Norman shopping for the Lenten season. We'll see how it goes and I will probably need support from all of you. I would then like to know what you are giving up for Lent.
Hey! I 'm Lyndsey. I'm 39 (tomorrow, March 6) and I have 2 boys, age 11 and 6 (7 in 2 weeks). I'm an online teacher, so I'm online all the time. Since I work alone at home, I'm on facebook a lot because it's sort of my water cooler- it's where I talk to people during the day! I've started visiting BT more because I'm worried that people will think I never work if I'm on FB all the time. I'm super addicted to makeup, though I wear neutrals 99% of the time. I lift heavy weights for fun (but I'm not a crossfitter) and I am a roller derby announcer after I retired from skating for 4 years. I've been lurking BT for a while but just started posting a month ago.
So I go through phases with different culture and now I'm on a Korean phase, Korean music, Korean TV show, Korean skincare, and Korean food. I saw ppl eating Bindaetteok on a show and really really want to make it. Does anyone have a good recipe for that? Also, does anyone have any good recipe for any Korean food aside from Kimchi fried rice (the one dish I made/liked so far).
