Tipping for beauty services
Not sure what board to post this at, so sorry if I'm in the wrong place!   I just moved to Canada and where I'm originally from, tipping isn't common. I don't want to seem like a cheapskate and tip the right amount haha, so how much do you guys usually tip? What is (in)appropriate?   And what about low cost services like a brow wax, do you still go with a percentage or just add a couple dollars? Do you still tip for a service you're not all that happy with?   Sorry for all the questions, I'm curious!

Dolce and Dolce and Dolce... Oh My!
I've been on a massive Dolce spree lately... I tried their lipsticks and lip glosses and I'm in love!  I also did my normal Kat Von D hoarding as well this month with all the new lippies.  So much so, that I haven't yet did my normal Nars round up.  Is there a particular brand that you have been snatching up lately anytime you have a couple of bucks in your pocket?  What is the brand and how much do you think you spent on your brand addiction?  And what do you love about it?

Just signed up for Bobbi Brown's Workshop! Who's In?!
I'm sooooo excited! I just bought Bobbi Brown's Beauty Manual in Barnes and Noble the other day and loved it. I just happened to take a peek at her actual website and saw that she's got a team of makeup artists that hold workshops. I was thinking...how am I getting to CA or NY for these?!?!? Then I found out it's right at the Bobbi Brown Studio in my State! (NJ) I didn't know this place existed. Just so happens that the Basic Beauty workshop is being help next Friday from 4-8pm. It's $200 ($100 redeemable in product) If any of you are from NJ and have the $, maybe you should come with!! I'm overly excited about this ;-)  Happy Monday <3

Looking for empy/used Diptyque candle jars
I'm loving the concept of using empty Diptyque candle jars for beauty storage -- they look so pretty and classic. However, i'm not really feeling like dropping $30 a candle to do this. Additionally I haven't had great luck with eBay since they are few listings for empty jars. Any recommendations for other places to look online?

Thank You for the Suggestions on the Items I had to Trade or Donate....
 I ended up going with my child to the local Women, Family, and Children's Food / Nutrition Classes / Parenting Classes for those who need it and free Womans heathcare/std testing. They also have an apartment complex for single women with children can rent, pro-rated o what they can pay, but to stay there they must be either looking for a job actively or working and are unable to get on their feet. We went there to sign up my Child for WIC ( she is available to get formula coupons until my grandbaby is weaned off the Similac, then they will provide 4 gallons of milk per week for her child until kidergarden age or until my child makes more money. )   ANYWAY - I donated the box I started that contains $118.50 worth of items - Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa Shampoo and a bottle of the matching conditioner: $30.00 , B&BW BLACKBERRY WOODS Triple Moisture Shimmer Lotion : $12.50 8 BOTTLES of "ART DECO" fingernail ART PAINT /Nail Lacquer to paint designs on your nails in may different colors

My Foundation Sample Adventure !
Hey girls, So today I was on the hunt to get as many foundation samples as I could from brands I am so very curious to try out. I hit 5 out of 6 stores in Toronto and got a small ziploc bag full of samples. I managed to get matched to most of the brands except the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear which I will still have to get them to go match me in as they didn't even put the effort into trying anyway. My worst experience was the Sephora Fairview which I was very disappointed in the application the girl did. It was streaky, patchy and looked so **bleep** gross. I find when I am in need of foundation matches some reps tend to steer you in the direction of products they'd want you to try vs what you'd like to actually check out. All in all I was pretty happy with the outcome. I've also been told I am now going to be VIB Rouge again in 2015 which I am not too impressed with as I didn't get any of the perks they claimed we'd get. Hope all of you are having a great Sunday !

"...Can't We All Just Get Along?..." ~Rodney King
I enjoy participating on this forum. It's FUN!   HOWEVER, since I've been reading a lot more  posts, I'm finding hostile mean rude comments that the threads go on & on exactly like a ganging up group bullying tactic.    I wouldn't be posting this if I didn't see this all over the forum old & new threads. Also, my feelings have been hurt recently by a comment made to me that could have been posted in a tactful way. I'm not perfect. Words may be left out in a post/comment/reply.   Did you know the person who blatantly implied my reply was incorrect actually answered a question someone asked & their answer was 100% Not True---Wrong---Incorrect? Hmmm...interesting. See what I mean?    I started reading comments/replies made by members who specifically point out a person to say they're wrong about the opinion or product. (wrong may not be the exact word used yet always implied with other words)   You can focus on the product/tip/advice/opinion, without using the PERSON. When you do that, it's not about the make-up any longer, it's the human being with feelings/emotions.   Sometimes it's not what's said, it's how it's said/presented. Why must people say things that can hurt another persons feelings? Ignore what you don't like. Written words can always be misunderstood.   Are you here just to insult the person or point out errors? I've seen a  group of same people follow the person they've targeted. If you disapprove of their posts, STOP READING WHAT THEY WRITE!     If you don't like what someone posts, scroll past, ignore them. It seems like the "angry hostile  complainers" are the SAME PEOPLE who literally STALK a specific person(s)...Forum Bullies?  Hunting in Packs? Hmmmm?   STOP READING THEIR POSTS JUST TO POINT OUT WHAT'S NOT TRUE or WRONG ANSWER! You don't need to address the person, quote them. Maybe start a new thread on the topic, write your own opinion.   If someone attacks me in a personal way, I will reply to you in the way you addressed me. It doesn't feel good does it?
