JUBILANT JUNE FAVORITES
....i used 'jubilant'. i waited all month for this (for those who know what i'm talking about). I MEANT TO USE "JAUNTY". I SHOULD NOT MAKE POSTS AFTER HAVING A SAKE COCKTAIL. fail.   ok....what have been my favorite things this month ???   PIXI glow tonic . i only got this toward the end of the month, but i love it. i use it in the morning before i put on any serum/oil and moisturizer (typically after i use the CLINIQUE *mild* clarifying lotion, if i happen to use it in the morning, sometimes i don't). it smells really nice yet not overbearing at all. can be sprayed over makeup to refresh your foundation if it's looking a bit patchy / dehydrated. totally works ! ....which leads me to CLINIQUE mild clarifying lotion . this is the only one in the range that does not contain alcohol. i wish it were called something different, actually, because the clarifying lotions have SUCH a reputation. but with consis use over the past month, i've found that some stubborn congestion on my chin has gone away completely, due to the salicylic acid. while things like the FAB pads give good 'glow' and help with gentle exfoliation (with the glycolic and lactic acid), the salicylic is good for stubborn unclogging. NYX lip liner in pale pink . it is quite pale, almost greyish pink. but because it leans grey rather than blue, it doesn't look garish or too "barbie" (which is great for a lot of women but not on me). just a unique color which is a good base for nudey pink lips (particularly with the slightly warmer MAC honey love, my go-to and always-favorite.) SEPHORA COLLECTION eyeliner in 'strawberry macaroon' . perfect waterline color. can look very natural, but also great for smokey eye looks because it gives a bit of that heroin chic sheen when contrasted with darker liner/shadows. can't beat the price. i put this in my favorites a couple months ago, i think, but i've only been using it regularly this month. i'd be remiss in not mentioning it again.   SHISEIDO wetforce spf 50 . because it works. and i really needed something that works WELL while in hawaii. i'm proof because i easily could've turned full-lobster if using anything less effective.  BUMBLE AND BUMBLE hairdresser's invisible oil shampoo, conditioner and hair "primer" . this is the only shampoo and conditioner i've used all month (which isn't saying much as i only wash my hair once a week, really, but still)-- with the slight exception of putting AVEDA dry remedy hair masque on the ends (which i will consider a monthly favorite, too). my hair is more manageable than it's been the entirety of my growing-out process. i've loved any b&b shampoo and conditioner i've tried, really. highly recommend. edited to add: sake cocktails . because they taste like whatever heaven you mix the sake with (in this case: watermelon juice and lavender) and leave you feeling STUPID and happy.    alright ! how about you guys ?

Lost forever?
I realized when I was packing for my trip to Florida at the beginning of the month that one of my lipsticks is missing. I really don't have that many, so it's not like I have a lot to keep track of. But it's Fanny from the Audacious like and she's my favorite pink. I don't have a dupe for that shade and I've wanted to wear it a few times this month and I can't find it ANYWHERE!    Do you guys ever lose makeup? Or is it just me and my scatterbrained self.

Comic Books?
Does anyone out there read any comics? I am new to reading them (even though I am 35). I am most interested in Marvel storylines. Namely: Civil War, The Secret Wars, Black Widow and Groot. I am a member of Nerd Block's new Comic Block subscription box. And it introduced me to the Mythic series from Image Comics. I'm pretty into that.  The problem is, I don't know of anyone in my life who is interested in any of these things so I have no one to talk to about them!!!

IMATS Toronto 2015
Hey everyone, do any of you wanna talk about the IMATS TO show? I have never been to it and was planning in attending this year. I looked at the other cities that hold the tradeshow like LA and NY, they have way more fun exhibitors than TO ABH, Too Faced, DOC, UB, Stila,  no ones going to the Toronto show. I feel like it doesnt even seem worth going (Its an 8 hour drive for me, plus hotel $$)!  What is everyone else thinking? Im not sure on going, I feel like id just go to Sephora and buy everything.... thanks!

Favorite Freebie or GWP of All Time?
Everyone loves a good GWP or even better yet a good freebie. What are one or some of your all time favorite GWP's or better yet freebies from Sephora or Department Stores and what you did you do to get it?   I've been very fortunate to meet some very good SA's in my favorite department store.  Here are a few of my all time memorable experiences:   1)While making a purchase at a BB counter, I qualified for the GWP($125) - standard 3 piece BB giveaway mini  lip palette, eye cream and a mascara.  Additionally, For FREE, in my bag I also received the GWP from Laura Mercier, Shiseido, & Keilh's. Very Nice Bonus - this is the equivalent to getting 3 500pt perks for free!!!   2)Items Received for Free for visiting counters while attending a store Beauty Trend Show - received a full sized New Release Butter of London Lip Stick,  2 sets of Erno Laslo Cleansing Oil/Soap/toner (3 piece deluxe sample set), while entering the store you got a Free continental breakfast and recycled tote with handful of foils/perfume samples and YSL Mascara (deluxe size). I did not make a purchase at this event, but have given them $$$ through the years.   3) Received a Full Sized Shiseido Moisturizer $$$.  This is in conjunction to my $50 shiseido purchase and the standard gwp. I believe Kiehl's does this too, in limited quantities a full size bonus step up item complimentary to the first few customers-these usually are gone early on during the event/promotion.   4) Best Sephora gwp/freebie - happened while shopping in store, I was browsing and purchased a skincare item and the rep from that line was there.  I received generous deluxe samples to try without asking, she just happen to have them available. The best surprises happen when you don't expect them.   What are some of your favorite GWP's or Freebie experiences?

What to do in NYC?
I've already PMed a couple of BTers who live in NYC, but I figured I'd ask everyone for advice on what I simply should not miss during my upcoming trip.   My friend and I will be staying in Brooklyn for five days in August, and we're looking to experience more local haunts as opposed to places most tourists frequent (I lived in New York for half of my life, so I've done the Times Square / Natural History / Statue of Liberty thing many, many times). I want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge and my friend wants to spend time in Central Park, but other than that, we really want to find some hidden gems: places to eat, waste time, listen to good music, and shop.   So, NYC locals, what do you suggest?

Sad day!!!I'
I'm having a trying week. I've been short on patience and working at a very chaotic day camp all week. THEN this morning I reached for my MUCH loved little Sephora compact mirror I got for free with a gift card as a gift and it somehow got smashed without me realizing it. And during the day at camp my brand new Stitch keychain that I just bought at WDW a couple of weeks ago broke. I'm not sure how to fix it. *sigh* It's just not my day.   But I see that Sephora has compact mirrors on sale for just $5 so I ordered a new one. Just ONE MORE day of camp. I can do this, right?

Sephora France
My dad just got back from a business trip in France and obviously my mother and I made a list of France-exclusive products that we wanted to get.   The only downside is that when my dad gave the SA our list (which was individual product page print outs from the Sephora FR website) she mistakenly gave him a Chanel Allure Deodorant instead of the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle deodorant. Which we obviously can no longer return. And of course my dad didn't think to double check the list because how hard can it be to read and look at the picture and give him the correct product?   But he did get everything else on the list and I'm really happy with my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle France-exclusive products like the Hair Mist and the Body Mist. The body mist smells soooo nice!! And my mom is super happy with her YSL Rive Gauche and her Chanel stuff.   And the amount of samples he came home with was insane!! He got 4 deluxe samples and they were huge!! And he also got 10+ perfume samples. All of this he got at checkout without even having to ask (and he didn't even know you could ask for samples). They even threw in a Guerlain laptop/ipad protective cover/bag (at least I think that's what it is). I was really really impressed that they gave him all those samples. When I spend the same amount of money here I have to practically beg them for a sample with my purchase (and I only get one) and in France they're giving them out like candy.   Next time he goes back to France for business I will get my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Deodorant.
