30 day lipstick challenge

Spring 2015 Collections
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?!?!

Sample Saturday
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.

What's on your plate?
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?

Subscription box photo sharing
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)

What if your Best Beauty find of 2014!?
 (apparently I can not spell today..) This year has been very purchase heavy for me, some of the things were great, others not so much. So since the year is almost over lets do a round up on "What was your THE best beauty(skincare, clothing, etc.) find/discovery of the year?".   IF you had BIG misses and no so great finds - go ahead and share them too!    My great discoveries were: - Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere - after being on a hunt for a good foundation, and then while in Nordies stumbling on Chanel counter and lovely associate helping me out with a perfect shade match and coverage - I fell in love with this one!!! - Skincare wise I think Algenist was my discovery - they have such a great skin care line, I love their firming cream and oil!! - After such a craze about Bite beauty , and finally my local stores having the items on display, I caved and decided to see what they were about  - now I am a proud owner of about 10 of their lip products - Then I just have to mention finding the GLAMGLOW masks at my fave TJMAxx - that was an amazing deal!!!

Take the Challenge: Palette Parade
Hi. My name is Bombshell and I am an eye shadow-aholic. I love it. It makes me so happy. It is getting out of control. Upon counting only those palettes with 3+ shadows I have a total of 43. They each deserve love and attention. They all deserve their own 5 minutes (or days in the case) of fame. My Plan is this: One by one the Palattes shall parade through the open space on my vanity. Starting this Monday, each week I will use only one palette per work week (M-F) and cheat on the weekends. I will use them one by one until I have used them all for  5 day period. I will use them in alphabetical order. I have alphabetized my palettes and started with those that begin with #'s, lowest number to highest, and the A-Z. On Saturday and Sunday (depending on what CalamityJane comes up with) there might be a look or color of the day. In addition to the palette, single shadows and eyeliner may be used ( ) in addition to the weekly palette. All looks should mainly come from the palette of the week. This way I can be fair to all of my palettes & all of my older palettes that haven't quite gotten the appreciation they deserve will get some time in the sun. At the end of the week if I was successful I will write the date beside the palette on the list. If I can't get at least 5 days worth of looks from them it is likely time to put them in a TSB or give them to a friend that will love them.  I am hoping this will help me appreciate what I've got rather than constantly thinking I need something new. I am not promising not to buy any shadows in the almost year it will take me to complete this little journey. That is just not realistic.I will just have to use them on weekend cheat days.  I am hoping the experience will at least make me more grateful for all the wonderful things I have & save me some $! LOL This is about accountability. I invite any and all to join. Feel free to make up your own rules and reward system. Just post them here and I will support you in your efforts any way that I can. Not all of us will be able to follow the same rules but we can certainly all support one another!    Courtesy of Mafan--- New Rule* I f you absolutely DO NOT like a palette, you have the option of setting it aside for a TSB/give away and moving on to the next palette on your list. No sense in wearing make up you don't like for 5 whole days!Make up is supposed to make us happy.   Courtesy of JaimeLove--- New Rule* A holiday (including your birthday,anniversary or graduation) is an acceptable cheat day! (BRILLIANT)   My List Week 1: 4 Magic-Lancome   1/17/14 Not keeping, got bored by day 3 Week 2: 4 Passion-Lancome  1/24/14 Depotting one shade and passing on the rest, which are almost new!!!  Week 3: 10th Anniversary Palettes- Too Faced Quasi-keeper: keeping one blush, and 4 of the shadows. Donating the rest to a friends Z-palette. NOTE TO SELF: Must NOT depot before using! Just got so excited about my new toy! Week 4 : 10 Pan Shadow Palette- Stila.   Keeping- love it more than I knew!!  Week 5: 15th Anniversary Palette- Urban Decay KEEPER!!!

My new kitty
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.

While I was shopping
So I know a lot of people just want to vent out their shopping experiences at makeup stores and such. Sometimes you have a funny or an infuriating tale to tell, but you hesitate to post because it might be on a thread of "Oh hey, skincare."    So let's start fresh and post our crazy experiences here, thanks to heartsmyface for giving me the idea!    I'll start with what happened today at Ulta.   I got a 20 percent discount coupon, this was my second time coming back because I was still on the fence on what to buy. Unfortunately what I really wanted wasn't there (Benfit's set of tints and balms).  I decided to go for bareminerals kit which has a lot of stuff in there AND for the first time ever, eyelashes.   I was at the line and I told the lady that was checking me out if I could go switch the box I had because I was a bit unsure about the color.. she told me "Oh yeah, this definitely looks like the wrong color." Keep in mind I had medium which is my skin tone and well, bareminerals is a bit confusing with their stuff, especially for a newbie to the brand. I asked her what she thought I should get and she suggested a tannish one.. Um. I'm not the fairest in the land, but I know my skin tone isn't cocoa, I don't know if she misunderstood me or what but I was definitely like "Oh... yeah, nevermind, I'll just take this one."    So she charged me, I handed her a 100 dollar bill, she gave me the receipt and went to go answer the phone, I don't know if they should do that but I do find it a bit rude. She came back and asked me "Oh, was there anything else you needed?" And I said "Yeah, my money back."  And believe it or not, she had forgotten. In that one minute she was away, she forgot that she in fact did not give me my 61 dollars and four cents back. LOL. She did apologize, but .. due to this, I don't think I want to go back there again. Also, Ulta staff is never friendly, one time a girl worker was being obnoxious because of my Jeffrey Campbell boots, and now when she sees me it's like she's seeing Satan.

Please Keep Yourself Healthy!
Hi Everyone,    I just wanted to check in and wish everyone a happy holidays but also to please, please, please take care of yourself and stay healthy! I wasnt going to post about this because BT is such a positive place but I felt it was important to put this out there.    My oldest sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer last year at just 38 years old. This is a cancer that is supposedly for "older" people meaning you do not get screened for it until after the age of 50 because its not likely for a person to be diagnosed with it before that age. If you ever feel a pain in your body or just feel like something is not right...please go to a doctor and get checked and also let them know your family's medical history. It can save your life!! My sister's cancer was so advanced that there was no way to save her. Her treatments were just to try and keep the cancer from spreading in order to give her some more time with us. Unfortunately, her time ran out last week at the VERY young age of 40 and leaves behind my niece and nephew who are only in high school.    Even if you do not have any symptoms but you have a family history of an illness, please get regular screenings. Some cancers, like colon cancer, do not show any symptoms until its too late. I will now have to get screened for colon cancer every year for the rest of my life because the probability is higher for me since a direct relative had it. I'm sure we all know, if you can catch it early, you'll give yourself the best chance of beating it.    I apologize for such a long post and the sad nature of this post as well. But I truly want everyone to stay as healthy as possible for your own sake and also the sake of your family. You guys are the best and I'll be back on BT soon.

The Canadian Peeps!
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!

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

Christmas Drama
Alright. I know December we're trying our best to be happy, be merry, etc. BUT, you know there's a few bad apples that just get under your skin.  I usually don't do this but here we go.  My cousin Anna and I love the same things. Old school rock n roll, we gravitate to that cheetah print, the only difference is our attitude and age difference.  She's usually nice but she can be extremely vicious. I had bought her a couple of gifts. I was excited that she came down for the holidays. But here's where things went off the boat. She lost her keys, I had just arrived from the visit to the vet with Neko. I was carrying him inside his little travel box as I don't have a pet taxi for him (i'll explain), and she was in this put your hairs on end voice "omg I lost my keys, help me find them, oh god" etc.  So I just told her because I've already been stressed enough "That's your problem."  It'd help if she had said "Okay, I've been in this room and that, help me look here." But she just wanted me to go look without giving me direction as to where. She was even going ..inside my room? Now, I have a thing about people coming in my room, if you're invited, go in.. if not.. don't just walk in there like it's your house. There's a reason why I keep my door closed.  Okay, so when I said "That's your problem." She barked "Well, F YOU THEN you little fat b*."  I'm sure she muttered more stuff under her breath but I just went inside my room and tried not to get in her way.   Obviously she made me feel bad, I rejected her and she had to be so nasty about it. There's other ways to be mean but not use such hard language, you know?  So then I was here thinking how bad she's made me feel and wonder why I have to be so forgiving with her. I guess I feel bad that her sisters hate her, due to that very reason.  Well. In the summer she was here and she threw away a lot of our stuff because she was trying to 'declutter' our house.. It wasn't in her place, but she did it. During that, she threw out my pet taxi, because I didn't have a cat at that time.. but you never know and I had that since I had my first cat ever.. so when I found out, it really hurt. Cause it made me think of the memories with my little Dolly and how when we were traveling I'd be like "Beep beep, dolly, beep beep."  :\ On a different occasion she said that I'm two faced pretending I love my grandma when she knows that I hate her. How?   So this gives you a little idea of why I'm doing this. I had two gifts for her but I ended up removing the label on one of them and just gifting it to someone else. They're Korres hand creams so that was the general gift, I still kept the makeup palette that I'm gifting to her for her though, so she won't feel entirely bad. Did I do right? I don't know.   Any bad christmas drama going on with your family?

Show us your vanity/make up set up!
I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities.     I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way.  This is my set up for now.   Whats your set up like?

Rainy Days
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.

Your Top 5 (Friends style)
Alright everyone, you know the deal. Young 'uns listen up if your only reference to the TV show Friends is something your parents watched.    On second thought... if you're that young, this might not be the best thread for you. I'm officially giving this thread an R rating for mature concepts and mild to moderate sexuality.    On the TV show Friends, Ross and Rachel each were allowed to maintain a list of 5 people/celebrities with whom they could cheat on eachother with, and the other person couldn't get mad.    Without going further into the episode, who's on your list? At least right now... until it changes with everybody else's posts (which is exactly why you don't laminate your list like Ross did!)   1. Bradley Cooper 2. Christian Bale 3. Carlos Bocanegra (former captain of the men's US soccer team) Spoiler (Highlight to read)       4. Hugh Jackman 5. Mike Rowe

2015 Beauty Resolutions
With 2014 drawing to a close, what resolutions (beauty related or not) have you set for 2015? For beauty related, I want to wear sunscreen on my hands everyday, drink more water, and work my retinol up to a higher concentration (hopefully prescription strength). As far as the other aspects of my life, I think that tackling my terrible tendency towards procrastination will be enough of a feat.

VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

Beautylish Lucky Bags 2015
Beautylish Lucky Bags are back!  I missed out last year but saw some great bags.  Same deal, $75 for $150 worth of product.  US shipping only.  And the temptation of extra lucky gifts for a few fortunate buyers.  I went with Natural.   This year there are 3 choices,    BOLD The Bold Lucky Bag is for anyone who likes to stand out in a crowd, wear bright colors and express their creative spirit through makeup. If Lady Gaga were a Lucky Bag, she would be this one!   NATURAL The Natural Lucky Bag is for the person who loves products but leans toward a more neutral palette. If perfect dewey skin and a flushed cheek is your look, the Natural is for you.   MUA The MUA bag is for the serious makeup artist who wants great additions for their kit. It is for someone with professional needs—multiple foundation shades, kit tools and staples.

Just call me BT-Claus (And the Best Beauty Tips)
**CLOSED** This giveaway is a wrap! Those individuals chosen have been notified, so check your messages! Happy Holidays, everyone!   So, I have lots and lots of deluxe samples and foils. Good ones, too (La Mer, Guerlain, Dior...), but my stash is becoming an unmanageable space-hog. I want them out of my house and into the hands of BTers who will use them. I also want to show all of you my gratitude for maintaining such a positive community!   So, I've decided to play BT-Claus, and offer them to all of you-- no strings attached. Not a TSB, not a trade, not even a pay it forward situation (unless you were so inclined, of course). I am giving them away, with postage to either the US or Canada paid by me (sorry, BTers living in the rest of the world).   Here's the deal: I'm going to assemble ten to fifteen boxes full of samples, and from this thread, I'm going to choose random* people to PM for an address. I'll be choosing anytime between now and Sunday (21 December 2014). You should expect to hear from me no later than Sunday evening (say, 7pm EST).  Note: you must be over 18 (sorry, younguns!). I'll ship boxes on Monday, and viola!-- you could be the proud recipient of an unexpected holiday gift!   To avoid confusion, please only post if you are interested in receiving a box, or specify your disinterest within your post. The discussion topic is: what is the best beauty/skincare tip you have been taught, or what beauty/skincare tip would you tell everyone about, if you could?   *As these are my personal items and my own money for postage, I hope it is okay with all of you that I choose how I will decide who receives a box, whether it be by random generator or just by my own whim.
