Beauty Pet Peeves
What are your beauty pet peeves?   Here are a few of mine   When there's a huge hype around an item/brand or your own hype to get something and you get it and you are just meh.   I recently got a few items that were taking FOREVER to get to my house.  Canada Post was sooo slow at processing... the items were stuck with them and the tracking wasn't moving at all.  I was so excited and couldn't wait for them to be delivered and finally the items just showed up (tracking not updated) and I was like meh... not too impressed with what I got.  I thought I'd love it but no... not really. Swatched and sitting in a drawer somewhere... awww that just kills me lol   Another one (and this is for the Canadian girls). When you see free shipping on your favorite beauty products and then notice below in very small font US ONLY. ugh   So what grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!

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.

Loveee Pocky! see post
sorry guys, i don't have the wits right now to come up with a more clever title. but wanna talk about your favorites this past month ?   as some of you know, august was a DIFFICULT month for moi. a serious breakup, a death in the family. TURNING 30. but...this all corresponded with me using makeup as a coping mechanism, so i have lots of new faves !   maybelline color tattoo pots. these things DO NOT BUDGE. they're all i wore for the first half of the month. with bad to the bronze, tough as taupe and creamy beige all being in rotation. anything that contributed toward my copper / rusty eye fixation that took over the second half of the month. MAC mythology, KVD raw power, UD freelove , and extra shoutout to MUFE artist shadow in the matte auburn shade (which is my new very favorite !! i can look up the mufe code style name if anyone is interested....) the month was a tale of 3 blushes , all from NARS : the first half of the month was dominated by sex appeal . the second half of the month i used exhibit a almost every day as a transition shade on my eyes. and the unsuspecting reigning queen: mata hari . with the warm tones on the eyes and the cooler tones on my lips, this proved to be the perfect glowy bridge between the two. not too warm, not too cool. perfect. (also wore mata hari as an eyeshadow recently and loved it. now i need to find a single shadow in a similar color, if any of your guys know of one to recommend ??) COLOURPOP ultra matte liquid lipsticks in trap and kapow (with kapow being my new favorite ever). i don't know how long this 'greige' thing will hang around and still look remotely fresh, but i am just really feeling it. DIPTYQUE vanille candle. this is extraordinary (the accompanying duelle eau de toilette is extraordinary too, though i only have a sample of that atm). it's a warm sweetness with no sugary overwhelmingness. favorite diptyque candle i've ever experienced. i don't have any skincare favorites this month because i've been pretty loyal to my usual cast. but i do have a couple of non beauty things to mention:   iphone game 'neko atsume'. it's such a simple game (that is entirely in japanese but don't let that deter you) where you collect cats by setting up a space for them to come and visit. i've found it to be very soothing, zen, and good for my anxiety. my brother told me i need to watch 'new girl' so i've been binge watching that and am thoroughly enjoying it.    alright, how about you ? anything you'd like to shout from the rooftops ?

How many Sephora stores have BTers visited?
Updated Sephora Store Role Call (8/16/15)   Edit 8/15/15: As you may have guessed, this quickly surpassed the character limit, so I transferred it over to a Google spreadsheet. I will try and leave the store list in this post for as long as possible. International stores are still a work in progress.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) docs dot google dot com/spreadsheets/d/1kB0kLu5Hm4ByFsHN8wlUdYjYXnReiS xy6ZkNJQLg1v4/edit?usp=sharing docs dot google dot com/spreadsheets/d/1kB0kLu5Hm4ByFsHN8wlUdYjYXnReiS xy6ZkNJQLg1v4/edit?usp=sharing   ***IMPORTANT: If you realize you forgot any locations that you'd like added, DO NOT edit/reply to your post, please use a SEPARATE POST using the text box below this post.***   ***Updated (?)... good god. I may or may not have drastically underestimated this project.***   ---------------------------- For the last few days I've been wondering how many different stores throughout the world that BTers have visited. So I wanted to compile a list of the stores, then add BTers names to it,or a * to indicate that it's been visited - whatever, not trying to get all NSA on everyone.   But (not?) surprisingly, it appears that it's not possible to simply locate a complete list of all stores, unless you want to pay for it from some agg data website.   So, for now, I pulled together a list of "all" the North American stores since that's where most of us are from. The site I found that lists them all out doesn't seem complete to me (rectifying...), so if a store you've been to isn't listed, please list it! Sorry about the lack of alphabeticalness (alphabeticality?), that's just how they were listed on the site.   If you've visited stores internationally, it would be very cool to see where people have been, and I would be happy to add international stores as people have visited them.   ***If you want, you can specify which of the stores you've visited you would consider your "home store(s)" to see who else happens to have the same one.***     Spoiler (Highlight to read) USA ALABAMA Birmingham Hoover Huntsville Mobile Prattville Spanish Fort ALASKA Anchorage ARIZONA Casa Grande Glendale Chandler Chandler (JCP) Gilbert Lake Havasu (JCP) Scottsdale Tempe Tucson Tuscon (JCP) Yuma ARKANSAS Fayetteville Fort Smith Little Rock Little Rock (JCP) Rogers CALIFORNIA Anaheim Antioch Arcadia Arcadia (JCP) Bakersfield Brea Burlingame Canoga Park Carlsbad Cerritos Chino Chula Vista Citrus Heights Costa Mesa Culver City Cupertino Daly City Downey El Cajon Emeryville Escondido Fairfield Fresno Fresno (JCP) Glendale Glendale (JCP) Hollywood Laguna Hills Lakewood Los Angeles, Beverly Center Los Angeles, Beverly Drive Los Angeles, Century City Manhattan Beach Manteca Mission Viejo Modesto Modesto (JCP) Montclair Montebello National City Northridge Northridge (JCP) Novato Palm Desert Palmdale Palo Alto/Stanford Pasadena Pleasanton Pleasanton (JCP) Rancho Cucamonga Rancho Cucamonga (JCP) Redlands Riverside Roseville Roseville (JCP) Sacramento Sacramento (JCP) Salinas San Bruno San Diego San Diego (JCP) San Francisco, Powell Street San Francisco, Stonestown San Francisco, Union Street San Francisco, Westfield San Jose San Jose (JCP) San Luis Obispo Santa Ana Santa Barbara Santa Clara Santa Monica Santa Rosa Sherman Oaks Stockton Temecula Thousand Oaks Thousand Oaks (JCP) Torrance Valencia Ventura Visalia Walnut Creek West Covina COLORADO Boulder Brighton Broomfield Colorado Springs Denver Denver (JCP) Fort Collins Littleton Montrose CONNECTICUT Danbury Fair Farmington Greenwich Trumbull Uncasville/Mohegan Sun DELAWARE Newark FLORIDA Aventura Aventura (JCP) Boca Raton Boyton Beach Brandon Brandon (JCP) Clearwater Clermont Coral Springs Davenport Destin Estero Ft.

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 !

Before I say anything- this post is going to be totally off topic and not about makeup at all!  I thought it would be nice to express our love for our pets, and maybe even pictures, too!  To start off, I used to be a dog person-- years ago.... But my whole perspective changed when a completely mellow nourished(not exaggerating!) female cat wandered in our backyard, hungry and hot. (This was in the summer of 2012) I still remember the poor kitty that was shaking as she ate a can of tuna and a bowl of milk because she was so hungry... Did I forget to mention that she was also a pregnant cat? Without a doubt I grew to love that cat, and I never thought in a million years that I would now be a cat person! But it doesn't stop there... We took that stray cat in, (after vet check up-shots- etc) and named her Olive. (People always ask me why we named her that- but she has these big beautiful eyes that look almost like olives!)  About a month later she had kittens-- 7 to be exact.. Unfortunately one of them was a runt and wasn't even fully developed- and after many attempts to feed it by hand, and through many tears, and a few days- the kitten died. The rest of the 6 kittens were so stinkin' adorable and one of the best experiences I've ever had to take care of as far as animals are concerned! They were so cute- it was so amazing to see them grow and change and learn new things.. We named them all too, even though we didn't attempt to keep all of them! (We as in my family- I still live at home with my parents and siblings)  Samuel, (male) Marty,(male), Charlie (male), Titus(male) Gracie(female), and Mabel(female.) After weeks of deciding which kittens to keep we final decided on Titus and Mabel. When the kittens were old enough to be separated from their mother, we found a great little shelter for the rest of them until they could be adopted to hopefully good homes.  After a couple of months Mabel began to ruin our house by clawing everything-- sadly we have to give her away as well, but later on we decided to get Olive(mom) and Titus(male kitten) declawed.. (We hadnt thought of declawing Mabel at that time so it wasn't an option!) Of course I know many people don't agree with declawing of animals- but if they're indoor cat like ours- and if you get it done when they are still kittens(like Titus was) then they should be fine... And yes- our cats turned out completely fine, after about a month of healing. Anyway, Olive and Titus it was; both beautiful tiger calico cats... That's not  the end of the story though. Last year we actually had 2 strays- one I will not bother telling the story of because he was suffering from terrible accidents outdoors that led him to being put down- and the other one I will quickly explain. Once again, mellow nourished, black & white tuxedo cat, a stray, wanders into our backyard, a sweet little thing. (GOSH his face is the cutest thing ever!) So lets just say that my family and I live with three cats now... Olive, Titus, and Mittens. (Mittens is such a common name for a cat with four white paws!) I love them all so so much, and they each are truly different and I love seeing each of their personalities! I have to admit that Titus is the SWEETEST cat in the entire world--- and I have to say that it is most likely because he was born in our home. He is so cute- he still meows like a kitten- and is totally overweight. (yes, my boo is on a diet- as the rest of them are, LOL!) SO- after I just blabbed my big mouth for half an hour- I want to hear YOUR story of your pets-whatever your pet may be. (And I do still like dogs- but I'm totally a crazy cat lady now!) Please feel free to share your story as well, whatever it might be- whatever means the most to you about your pet- whatever seems special to you--- I hope this post wasn't too boring, lol, and that you do enjoy it! XOXOXO PS. And as I write this post Titus is sleeping next to me. <3

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)

Who's Online?
Game time!  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?   You will get one entry for your first time playing along, because you appear in your list. Play as many times as you want, but you will not get additional personal entries for extra turns. Everyone else on your list will get an entry each time you play though. That way, everyone has a shot at winning other they play the game or not.     MK89 is still in the lead with 13!   Repeats so Far 19910827 x2 1mama3boys x2 221tea x4 4Ali4 x4 aaks1985 x4 anaa x3 annec322 x2 ashleynne x2 Ballerinagrl x5 Bea0t x5 beautyaddict99 x3 beautyispassion x2 bisoubisou x4 BlueeyeAli x3 brennab x3 Brie514 x2 butterblume x4 Cahlee x2 CaramelCupcake x2 CeliaV x3 Chelssss x2 chloe3036 x4 chocopudding x4 cig01 x2 coffeenow x5 cspriverratz x2 Curious Cannibal x2 dalidyli x2 darkiceis x2 ddstevens22 x3 desertdancer x6 DiVWA x4 drrragon x4 Elizabeth1972 x2 ellew2005 X2 Emmylove x5 enableme x2 ER!CAK1M x2 etscore1 x8 ExquisiteGypsy x5 Facesbyjes x5 gizeh x2 greenchili x5 greenporchlights x5 guzelkiz x3 Hackneyfl x4 hadtotryit x2 heartsmyface x8 heatherbee x7 Heatoyos1 x7 hellocoffee x2 Helvetica x6 HoneyBrownBunny x4 hookedonbeauty2 x2 hypnoticpose x3 Infinitise x6 ittybittyxme x2 jazzypurple x2 jeannie 11 x2 jemly x2 jen143xo x4 jenpred x2 jeyrosa x2 Jisub89 x6 joannimation x2 jobro1027 x4 jozkid x2 justj3n x4 k617 x5 Karma3p80 x8 KatelovesYSL x7 kbmatthews x3 Kenny x5 Knuevekm x5 kristengvan x2 Kromance x3 kso1225 x4 ladyinwhite x4 larissaladonna x2 laynebr x4 LCResz x2 leahlorraine87 x2 Loretta55 x2 Lovelykatya x3 lucyshnoosy x3 Lunality x2 lylysa x4 makeitup305 x2 Makeupinfinity x4 makeupobesessed x4 malday x6 meecheroo x7 meganlisa x2 megsny x2 Michelleshops x4 mimibel x3 misscg x2 MissHail x2 missjudycyang x 5 misspain x4 missrmessner x2 MissSpoiled x2 MK89 x13 mlinrin x3 MNSnowprincess x2 Mochapj x3 Monikay x3 mpas x2 mrsbaine x3 MrsLisha x2 mschrissie x2 NailsForLife x2 nerisai x2 newandaddicted x2 NikaBT x3 Nischcakes x2 noa1984 x3 notcreative x9 NotCrocker x2 nycmle x3 pek89 x7 pinktorridora x2 poshspice1 x2 preciousdreamsx x3 prettygirl (help me ID her) x2 prettyinpa x2 prettyplatypus x2 RandeeBt x2 rillablythe x6 Samtian x3 Sanabelle x2 sangova x4 sDdemn x5 ShannonAlexis x3 shirleylinn x3 SHolmes221 x2 shrewdle x3 simmerbait x2 sinfully x2 sirensong x2 sister13 x4 skintester x7 smigirvin x2 Sparklekai x2 spiderlashes x2 sprytely x6 srplpwdr x3 Srvanthi x9 Starrymom x9 Starrysparkle x2 Stephanielynn x6 Stylelynn x4 summerxskin x3 superjulienne x2 Swanbea x2 syritt x3 talinder x2 teatulip x2 tehprincessjenn x2 ThommiP x2 tracygirl64 x2 treecup x2 v0ltagekid x2 Vaashtii x2 vasilissa x2 vegchillilover x2 warriorwitch x3 xsunflowers x2 Zpsid91 x4

The Meet Cute
After seeing the wedding/engagement rings thread I started thinking it may be fun to exchange "how we met" stories.  I'll start with mine.   I was 17 and working in the Macy's Fashion Jewelry department.  I went into the breakroom up on the third floor to get a soda from the vending machine.  It got stuck and a man came in and banged the machine to get the drink out.  He reached down to grab it, and as he hands it to me I asked, "Are you Turkish?"  No thank you or anything.  I'm still embarrassed about that.  The thing is I was, and of course still am, obsessed with all things Turkish.  I had been teaching myself the language, listening to the music, watching their movies/tv etc.  So when I saw him I just got a feeling.   So anyone else want to share?

Harry Potter lipsticks, OMG
Okay, so I'm an enormous Harry Potter dork (I have a quote from Dumbledore tattooed on my back ), and I found out about these from BuzzFeed.  LASplash has a line of liquid lipsticks named after HP characters and other things (e.g. Charmed, Hermione, etc) and I think I need them all because THEY ARE HARRY POTTER LIPSTICKS.  If you wanna check them out, head to their website and look at the Smitten Liptint Mousse.    Aghhhhhh neeeeeeeddddd!  ;_;

How often do you check your makeup at work or elsewhere?
Ladies, I had a horrendous awakening today. I've had a pretty stressful week back to work and my face is showing it. I left for work at 6:30 this morning with unfinished business on my chin, not toooooo front and center, but there nevertheless.  I told myself to please get to work, and attend to it there.  Well, I never did.  In addition, the air conditioning where I work isn't all that efficient, and I'm having what I thought was decent second day hair.  I didn't really check all day, but for a quick swipe in the mirror in passing in the restroom bc that's all I have time for.  I got home and did an assessment and was horrified that I would be in front of people the way I did.    This led me to wonder, how often others check themselves in the mirror?  I just don't have the time to check, but I do care.  When not at work, I am constantly checking my face/makeup/butt/unameit in the mirror, but not at work.  Ugggg.  Even when I get downtime and I jump on the Internet (ie. BT) I don't check as much as I should.   I spare you the horrifics describing what I saw in the mirror today, as I am not looking for compliments or any reassurances, I have much self-esteem which is not to say, conceited.  I don't want this to be a bashing, just wondering how much I should care at work necessarily.    I searched for this topic, didn't find any...let me know if its repetitive.    Do share!

Sephora Sales Section- Get it Now!
If you see something awesome in the Sephora sales section, let us know. Sometimes items sell out quickly, so they get buried in other threads. Even if I check multiple times a day (and I sometimes do), you may check at a different time and find stock on items I missed (and vice versa). It seems like stock is often updated around 9am Pacific, but that is not always a given.   If you find something on sale not listed in the sales section, please list that here as well.

Saving & Preparing for Barney's Mid-Feb Awesome Love Yourself GWP ($250?)
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' 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 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!

Guess that Bleep
Over the past couple of weeks, I have seen more bleeps than usual on BT. That means it is time for another game. Screenshot (excluding the poster's name) the post containing the bleep and place it here. Place your guess inside the post. People can make guesses on screenshots shared by others or post their own. Bonus points if the original poster happens upon it to tell us if our guesses are correct.
