Deals too good to pass Up!
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.  If you share here and want to keep the deal exclusive to BT readers, just write for BT only in the post.   I will heart every deal I see without an outside link .  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 decided not to list it.   Should I use your deal, I will thank you here.  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 ...

RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY
Ok so I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. I've also been wanting to start a "random thoughts" thread...but I figured I'd separate the categories so that at least the "beauty" one is on the front page, rather than hidden in off topic. So, have a beauty-related thought but don't think it's worth starting a thread about ? Post it here !   today I got a facial at an extraordinarily nice spa. A real treat. And the results were immediate and truly great. But guys: she pulled out a clarisonic and a foamy cleanser for that first initial cleanse, and I nearly had a heart attack. Great for a lot of people but most of you know how I feel about those things !!!!!! Overall, as I said, it was great and my skin is happy. But sheesh.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2015
Folks, it's (almost) that time of the year-- the one and only Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I received the mailer today, and wanted to share the beauty items that they are going to have on sale. There will be many more beauty items on sale, not to mention a gazillion GWPs, in addition to what they let us peek through the mailer. Any insider tips on what else will be on sale and the GWP? What's on your wishlist?

Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
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 !

Who's Online?
Time for another game!  It's been too long since our last one.  I've wondered how BT decides which 9 people (one is always myself) to show me are online at the moment.  I thought it would be fun (we all know the fun is in off topic) to show who our 9 are when we happen upon this post.   Of 19,091 users logged in, BT is showing me the following.  I think I know all of them, so that's neat. I did not look them up (should have), but I see sister13, Blushhoarder, Bea0t, Loving London, Sddenm, kso1225, rjmalt, zpsid91 (did look at hers since it is a general avatar), and eaidlade.   Who do you see?  The more people who play along, the neater it will be to see how long it takes to see yourself again.  Does anyone see me or any of the ladies in my list?  How many do you recognize?  Does BT actually pick people you may know or is it completely random?     My girl, Maria, just jumped out to take the sole lead with 7entries.   Repeats so Far 1mama3boys x2 221tea x4 4Ali4 x2 aaks1985 x4 ashleynne x2 Ballerinagrl x4 Bea0t x4 beautyaddict99 x2 bisoubisou x4 BlueeyeAli x2 butterblume x4 CeliaV x2 chloe3036 x4 chocopudding x2 Curious Cannibal x2 ddstevens22 x3 desertdancer x3 DiVWA x4 drrragon x2 Elizabeth1972 x2 Emmylove x2 ER!CAK1M x2 etscore1 x5 Facesbyjes x5 gizeh x2 greenporchlights x3 guzelkiz x2 hadtotryit x2 heartsmyface x6 heatherbee x4 Heatoyos1 x6 hellocoffee x2 Helvetica x4 HoneyBrownBunny x3 hypnoticpose x2 Infinitise x5 jazzypurple x2 jen143xo Jisub89 x5 jobro1027 x3 jozkid x2 justj3n x2 k617 x4 Karma3p80 x6 KatelovesYSL x5 kbmatthews x2 Kenny x3 Knuevekm x3 kso1225 x2 ladyinwhite x3 larissaladonna x2 laynebr x3 Loretta55 x2 Lovelykatya x3 lylysa x4 Makeupinfinity x4 makeupobesessed x3 malday x6 meecheroo x4 megsny x2 Michelleshops x4 missjudycyang x 3 misspain x3 MissSpoiled x2 MK89 x7 MNSnowprincess x2 Mochapj x2 Monikay x2 mrsbaine x3 NikaBT x2 noa1984 x2 notcreative x5 nycmle x3 pek89 x6 poshspice1 x2 pretty girl (help me ID her) x2 prettyinpa x2 RandeeBt x2 rillablythe x6 Samtian x2 sangova x3 sDdemn x3 shirleylinn x2 sister13 x3 skintester x4 smigirvin x2 Sparklekai x2 sprytely x4 srplpwdr x2 Srvanthi x3 Starrymom 4 Stephanielynn x4 Stylelynn x4 Swanbea x2 syritt x2 talinder x2 teatulip x2 v0ltagekid x2 Vaashtii x2 vegchillilover x2 xsunflowers x2 Zpsid91 x3

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'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?

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.   ETA:   Where to shop!   So I do have a list/link somewhere with brands and where they are found.  I'll try and dig it out and if you want it pm me   For those who don't know...   Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have a wonderful loyalty program and your points are worth "cash" in store.   The Bay is bringing in more brands... just recently Burberry. I'm thinking we will see more good things come.  They also have a VIP program... I am not too sure how it all works but it applies to all purchases from the store and you get a 20$ off 100$ makeup purchase coupon almost every month... Like who wouldn't want that!  Hello MAC!   Beautylish ships to Canada and they are FAST!  Order processed and shipped within the hour and arrives the next day!   Now that we have Nordies in Canada you might be able to call a counter and get items shipped to you.  Some things you can get shipped from the site.   Apparently Saks is coming.  I believe The Bay is the one who will be owning them and bring them in.   If you get a good SA at Holts you can also get stuff shipped to you.   Sorry been MIA from this board a long time.

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.

Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!
I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .    What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?    Mine are: - Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often. - Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need! - When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!

Missed an EBay auction on my Unicorn and could just cry
Only you, my people, will understand without judging me LOL. I have been stalking EBay for the past two years trying to snag a long discontinued scent from Aveda called Love. A seller had like 5-6 sets of oil and a soap up for auction this week. Their family used to work for Aveda and they stocked up on all their favorites before the company sold. Anyway, I had bids on two of them and just logged on for the end of the auction. Well I missed it by a half hour. I somehow got the time wrong. And they all sold for very reasonable prices. I know this sounds nuts, but I almost cried. I was so, so sure today would be the day I could reclaim my long lost HG scent. Just needed to vent, I know some of you will totally understand my frustration.    Back to stalking ebay. Pray for me LOL. I emailed the seller asking if they have more to sell. Fingers crossed!!
