Let's celebrate! Our fearless leader, and wonderful BT buddy, the one and only - theSuperGirl, has 2000 hearts! Congrats, girl! You deserve them all, and then some! Thank you for all you do for your SuperFlyGirls! We <3 you!
I am and always will be in love with Big brother, and right now the Canada edition is on. I also am sucked into watching Survivor because a bunch of friends and co workers do a pool every year. Annnnd The Amazing Race. Anyone watching these shows? Or any of the other Reality shows out there?
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!
yesterday the tragic new struck that malayasia airlines flight from Kuala Lumpaar to bejjing,china had absolutely disappeared off the radar and has not been seen or heard of. this absolutely kills me. I cant imagine the terror or distress these family's feel, all they want to know is if their loved ones are safe, or moved on with god. all I've heard today is "they are gone, its impossible otherwise" I keep believing they are going to be okay but my parents doubt is killing the hope inside me. you cant give up hope, no matter what.pray everyone please just do this please just pray for these people to be safe. there were 239 people on board including infants, im just hoping that they made an emergency landing in the water and they are on a little raft all together and comfortable. Whenever I travel I get on that plane knowing that everyone telling me "its impossible, for it to crash" "highly unlikely" I cant even believe that this plane has gone down We need to have hope and faith and god needs to know this is not there time to come with him, please let these people go and live on this earth until it is time for them to leave,they don't deserve to leave like this. please everyone pray. if it comes to be that this tragedy has become real please just pray that it was quick and there was no fear in their minds.
Apparently Bloomingdales is going to be the exclusive retailer for Illamasqua. I heard this will be sometime in the spring, so be on the lookout for the reduced prices at some point in the future. So sad, we just lost Lorac too
So with all the discussion about makeup confessions, hauls, and new TSBs, we know that we all have a serious hobby and addiction to beauty. But how do you store them in your home? Do you like how you've organized your makeup collection? Do you have the space for them? How about your space for prepping and putting on your makeup? What would you change, if you could? Honestly, with me... I've had to make a lot of compromises and make the best out of what I have to work with! I live in a very old home, over 200 years old. I love it to pieces and I wouldn't trade it for anything. BUT it kind of lacks some of the modern conveniences that newer homes have. I don't have many good storage solutions yet, my closet space is almost nonexistent, and I'm currently using an entire room with built-in shelves to display my shoe collection. I don't yet have a proper makeup vanity, and my full-sized bathroom is laid out very poorly and does not have good ventilation, so I don't like to store my makeup in there. Instead I have cleared out the drawers in my night stand and do my best to organize my makeup in there. When I go to put it on, I grab what I need and transfer it to my bathroom, where I apply my makeup -- luckily with tons of natural light! -- on tiptoe so I can peer into my too-high and too-small vanity mirror. I can't set makeup out on top of my mirrored dresser/vanity because I have a very bratty cat that likes to wake us up every morning by pushing things off of dressers and tables, and I have nightmares that I would wake up to a shattered Lingerie de Peau bottle on my wood floors. Let's just say that we fully intend to renovate that bathroom once we've set aside enough money for it, lol! In my fantasy land, I would have a well-lit vanity space with six large makeup drawers, a padded bench, and a makeup mirror. Heck, I'd have a whole bathroom just for preparing my makeup every day! More realistically, in the short term, I am going to buy Muji acrylic makeup drawers or similar makeup organizers and really keep things looking pretty in my drawers. I'd also like to buy some bathroom storage solutions (cheaper solutions, since we are saving for a renovation) to better organize my bathroom sink and vanity, and of course, I think a good makeup mirror is in my near future. How about all of you? Are you happy with how you manage your cosmetics? Any pictures or storage ideas to share, for people with limited space? I'm curious!
Hi peeps! I'm unfamiliar with the nordie return policy since I generally never purchase items from there. I bought an item from Nordie this past weekend but threw away the receipt ( ) I used it ONCE and decided it wasn't for me. I still have the packaging with the Nordstrom sticker attached. Can I return the item w/o my receipt? Some stores save the receipt information as long as I present the CC I used (Target), which would be most excellent! Or is it similar to Sephora's policy, where I can at least get store credit in gc form? I'm hoping it's one of the above Thanks!
What makeup is everyone wearing today? Today I am wearing: 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!
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)
Hi ladies and gents, In keeping with the haul tradition, I thought I'd go ahead and start one for March! I can't WAIT to see all your fun and colorful goodies for the upcoming Spring season . This post is welcome to all, and as lilahtov said, a haul is a haul no matter how small .
I know some people wanted to see some of what I bought so I'm just posting some pics now. This is the Burberry palette in Dark Spice This is the cute case it comes in This is the Nars Matte Multiple in Siam This is the Nars Larger than Life Gloss in Como This is the Burberry Soft Satin Lip Cover in Prune This is Nars Lipstick in Morocco This is Burberry Lip Velvet in Hawthorne Berry This is MAC Heroine And this is Nars Single Eyeshadow in Fez. Some of these look lighter in the pictures... I have no idea why my camera won't take true to life colors but that's life, LOL! I have my Nars foundation and another Burberry lippie coming tomorrow. I can't wait!
TRADE THREAD #3 Overall trades have gone very well and many cosmetic items have found themselves new homes! However, there have been some trades that have not gone as well, so this trade post has been revised – please read it carefully! GUIDELINES Listing Your Items Please list what you have available, the condition, add a photo (if you have a lot, consider posting them under "spoiler" - the little face icon with a hand over its eyes - so tons of images don't flood the page for people scrolling) , and what you are interested in for trade. You may wish to list your location, such as the U.S. When something you have to offer is no longer available, please go back and edit your post to keep the listings more accurate! Because a number of fake items have been sent in trades, it is strongly advised you provide photos of your higher-end items, including the labeling (you may be asked for it anyway) and list WHERE you purchased the item from. Fakes are readily available from less reputable sellers and can contain toxins! It is important to everyone to know where their cosmetics come from. Acquiring Items Please use discretion with whom you enter into trades with. There is a summarized list of trusted traders here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/LIST-of- the-Successful-Traders-or-TB/td-p/1071289 Protect yourself in your trades, ask questions (such as where an item was purchased), ask for additional photos (to show level of usage and/or labeling to prove authenticity). If you don’t feel 100% comfortable doing a trade because someone is new, you can request they send their items first. Communication Please consider using the Private Messages system on Beauty Talk to help ensure someone knows you are trying to contact them. You can set up to receive an email when you get a PM in your preferences. You can also access your messages by looking under your profile on the left side of the main Beauty Talk page under your avatar and clicking on the envelope. Communication is key! Even if there is a mail delay to the giant blizzard or ice storm of 2014, not being able to get in touch with the person you are trading with is very frustrating! If you are on either side of a trade, please make sure you are able to stay in touch with the other person through the end of the trade. If you will be unable to communicate for a period of time, try to let them know that. Delivery Having tracking and insurance on shipments goes a long way to figuring out where an item might be. The USPS even puts anticipated delivery dates and the tracking numbers right on the receipts now! SUCCESSFUL TRADE EXPERIENCES? Consider providing your feedback on successful trades on this thread here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387 Please also see the previous trade thread: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Product- Trade-Thread-01-2014-TWO/m-p/1021537 Happy trading!
~*~*~*~*~ No Buy Thread for Feb/Mar 2014~*~*~*~*~ I n an attempt to be a conscious/responsible shopper instead of beauty product hoarder, I went on a no buy from mid-Dec to mid-Jan. Now that I've done my little shopping splurge, time to save up some money for tax and other boring needs. Therefore, I am now on a no-buy for the whole month of Feb and March . The goal for rest of the year is to spend just enough to qualify for VIB , and I'm going to try fund most of it through Swagbucks/Bing Rewards/Ebates (PM me if you want to know more about those sites). To keep myself accountable, I will tally up my total Sephora and beauty spending here as I go along. Yes, I'm airing out my dirty laundry. Anyone/everyone is welcome to join me. This is not meant to bash any particular products, but if you post then I'll give you reasons why you should delay the purchase, consider the alternative, or why you don't need it. I do not intend to judge or offend, so the disabler kitty will be helping me to keep the tone light: I will keep all my disabling to this thread, so please, ladies, let's not turn this into an enable thread . And I may need a little nudge from you ladies to help disable my own urges, too. =) Now then, will I succumb to exciting advertisements and fancy packaging? or will I hold onto my will power and succeed in actually saving some money?
I got my Nordstrom card online and I couldn't resist using it right away on makeup. I've heard a lot of people rave about Nordstrom's and how much better they are than Sephora but I need details! So far, they have the standard 3 free samples that don't look any different than Sephora's but their rewards program is a bit on the high side. I think they said 2000 points puts you on the lower level. But anyway, I bought a whole bunch of Burberry lipsticks and eye shadow palette as well as my standard 5 million Nars products that I've never purchased before because I didn't think the colors were right but Nordstrom's color charts seem to be better than Sephora's. More true to color but I may be wrong. I even picked up a MAC lippie.. But I've never tried Burberry before so I wanted to get the opinion of those who use it. I picked up 3 of the Velvet Matte lipsticks and the Soft Satin lippie. I also picked up the Beauty Complete Eye Palette. While it is expensive, is it worth it? And I was eyeing some Tom Ford's. How is that?
I just got my Urban Decay haul today! Excited but pissed... I got the Feminine and Dangerous Palettes for $12 but I ended up duplicating colors that I already have in UD singles. I've been trying to make a conscience effort not to do that but for $12, I couldn't resist getting them but the palettes are great. I'm happy I got them. But my thing is that I got the Deluxe Pre-Release item... and it's another black eyeliner. It's called Black Velvet. It's a travel sized which I like but I have like 3 Zero's and 2 Perversions that came in other sets. They really didn't go into specifics in the card about what makes it different from the others other to say that it's "velvety". But it's still BLACK! Now I don't know what to do with all these black eyeliners...
Exactly what the title says I know we've chatted about this before, but I thought I'd revive the topic with a new thread. With Chic Week coming up and new collections/products/lines dropping what feels like every day, what brands (collections, too, since Sephora's offering can be limited at the brand's discretion) do you wish you saw on shelves? For me, it would be Chanel, Tom Ford, and YSL's Spring collection. Chanel's Illusion d'Ombres (cream shadows) and Glossimers (lip glosses) are calling to me with their siren song, as are Tom Ford's lippies, quads and contour palettes (however exorbitantly priced!!!). I love YSL lippies, so I wish the new colors got some love here at Sephora. Oh, and while we're on the subject, ByTerry and Chantecaille wouldn't hurt, either! I adore both, and don't own nearly enough of either!
It's that time again! So February was better than January but what will March bring? Big congratulations to the following BT members who have joined ipsy they are Spacesuit Highly doubtful that we would get a sneak peek today but should have one starting Monday! 1st sneak peak Confirmed bareminerals marvelous movie lip gloss and Bareminerals marvelous moxie lipstick 2nd sneak peek Confirmed Nyx eyeshadow trio Be a bombshell eyeshadow quad 3rd sneak peek Confirmed Chelsea eyeliner Nicole by opi nail polish Missha m perfect cover bb cream 4th sneak peek Confirmed
Ends Saturday March 1 at roughly 9 am PST. Okay ladies, I promised a giveaway today and here it is! To enter into the giveaway, simply comment with an answer to today's question/topic! Today's question is: If you could start your own makeup line, what would you call it? I'll start with this duo as a prize: *The rings are listed as a size 8** Have fun and good luck! Notes: 1 entry per member You'd have to be okay with PMing me your address, I'd need to send the jewelry somewhere lol. I live in Los Angeles, so please be mindful of shipping costs. If you live in Canada, you might want to wait to enter for a bigger bundle! That way I won't be paying $10 shipping for a prize that's only worth $9 These are not real gold, etc, so if you find that you have bad reactions to this type of jewelry then keep that in mind before entering.
OFF-TOPIC thread devoted to just The Walking Dead-- Anyone who loves the show is welcome to geek out about it here!! Let's talk about past OR present story lines, theorize, ask questions about things we might not have understood, grieve for lost characters, explain what makes us fans, show off TWD-related merchandise, etc. Oh and memes of course! We should probably try to use the SPOILER TAGS in here when talking about story lines so we don't accidentally ruin anyone else's "viewing experience"! (FYI the spoiler button is at the top of your post box, the circular symbol right after ABC) First, I just want to say how I came to I love this show. I am not generally a fan of zombie stuff (well, I liked the original Dawn of the Dead, but I think that's because I got to fantasize about living in a mall!) It was season 2 or 3 when I accidentally got hooked. Some friends of mine without cable asked me to DVR the show for them, so I did for a few weeks. I'd planned to just busy myself otherwise when they came over to watch, but I wound up having a nasty flu the night they finally showed up and I was glued to my recliner. I thought I'd just close my eyes and sleep, but I was sucked in from the start, and since I'd missed a season or two, I kept pausing it to ask my friends questions "Why is he.." "How did that...?" Then I went back and watched all the previous stuff to be caught up, so I kinda watched it Pulp Fiction-style. The story lines are so complex and intriguing that you don't even notice the gore after a (very short) while. It's more suspenseful than scary, and also sad, and funny, and more than anything: heartwarming (yes, really). It's really all about survival and how people fight to live (and save their loved ones) even when there's really not much to live for. (I suffer with severe depression and other issues, so that is the part that kinda inspires me most of all.) Doesn't hurt that Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus are so hot, either. SO ANYHOOZ.... Regarding the most recent episode from 2.16.14: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Anyone else think Lizzie is one evil little kid? My gawd, I seriously thought she was going to suffocate baby Judith the other night. And after seeing her cut up the rabbits, I'm pretty sure now she was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison, and doing other weird stuff with them.

SO EXCITING!!! And who are those new bad-azz looking people!? SO EXCITING!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh glad I got all that out. What say other fans? Why do you love this show? What do you think is going on/will happen?
UPDATE!!! Please check if the person you are posting about already has status. Once they have that I no longer add them up. This will help keep the thread clearer, and to be honest make this job easier for me.

As much as I would like to pretend that I start everyday in a fluffy white robe, carefully applying make-up at an immaculately organized vanity….that's just not the case. I have make-up stashes all over the place and I'm constantly getting ready on the run. (Seriously, my husband talked me into getting a manual transmission car because he thought having to shift gears would cut down on my multi-tasking). So dump your purses, empty your gym bag and join me in owning up to what I'm actually reaching for on a daily basis. The Questions: 1. How many places do you store/stash make-up? 2. Which product(s) do you own in multiples so you're never without one? 3. Are your stashes high-end or drugstore? Are you like a friend of mine who hoards designer make-up, but totes around a Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker? 4. Have you ever stabbed yourself in the eye with mascara while driving? My answers: 1. 4.5: Home, Gym Bag, Office Drawer, Purse. The .5 is for the center console of my car. Stuff just ends up there. 2. The Body Shop Concealer Pencils, Blotting Papers, and Tweezerman Tweezers. I swear an errant eyebrow hair (or god forbid a chin hair) can rob me of my ability to concentrate until I'm able to pluck it. 3. Mine are a mix. I rotate a lot of samples and minis into my stashes as a way to try new products 4. More times than I care to admit. In the interest of honesty, I pulled everything out of my various make-up bags and took pictures. Gym Bag Stash: 1. Paula's Choice RESIST Antioxidant Serum, 2. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, 3. Shiseido Eyelash Curler, 4. Mini Lorac Luminizing Powder in Spotlight, 5. Miracle Skin Transformer in Light, 6. Tweezerman Tweezers, 7. Dejavu Fiberwig Mascara, 8. Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Brunette/Dark Brown, 9. Mini Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment, 10. Sephora Nano Eyeliner in Pure White, 11. Mini Stila Convertible Color in Peony, 12. The Body Shop Concealer Pencil in 01, 13. Brushes Work Stash: 1. La Fresh Face Wipes, 2. The Body Shop Concealer Pencil in 01, 3. Mini Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly, 4. Sephora Blotting Papers, 5. Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara, 6. Neutrogena Hand Lotion, 7. Jurlique Hand Sanitizer, 8. Assorted Emi-Jay Hair Ties, 9. Spin Pins Purse Stash: 1. Band-aids (I'm accident prone), 2. Clean & Clear Blotting Sheets, 3. Mary Kay Hand Lotion, 5. Re-purposed mini tub of moisturizer, 6. Emi-Jay Hair Tie w/ Mini Claw Clips, 7. Anastasia Brow Whiz in Brunette, 8. The Body Shop Love Gloss in Sweet Peach, 9. Mini Lancome Definicils Mascara in Black, 10. Tweezerman Tweezers, 11. The Body Shop Concealer Pencil in 01, 12.

The lovely MYchoi was fabulous enough to offer to ship me some delicious treats from California to Pennsylvania. She knows I LOVE Asian food but have no Asian markets near my homestead. Here are some of the wonderful things she included: ^Large flat rate box JAM-PACKED with goodies! ^Seaweed. ^Melon flavored gummies (one of my favorites!) and melon flavored hard candies. ^Green tea, panda, and strawberry pocky. I busted into the green tea pocky IMMEDIATELY! ^Various crackers/biscuits/pies. ^Bae, various mochi, and green tea swiss rolls (another fave). ^Strawberry Calpico, aloe drink, and melon yogurt drink. Do any of you have any favorite Asian foods, or foods from your culture or other cultures that you love?
I was thinking about the number of highlighters I have and then I wondered 'what's my total haul over time?' So I added everything up... 5 Foundations 15 Blushes 2 Concealers 3 Bronzers 9 Highlighters 2 Finishing powders 195 Eye shadows (15 singles, 113 in palettes, 57 in customizable palettes, and 10 pencil shadows) 60 eyeliners (51 liners, 3 double ended liners, 2 liquid and one rim liner) 2 Brow gels This is all active makeup - not stuff I've set aside for maybe trades, and does not include any backups. I forgot to count my lip stuff, I will have to do that later! What do you have?
