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.

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 !

Lately I have been going over my purchases and I noticed a tiny trend - I am obsessed with some things more than others.   So what are your 5 things/products that you are obsessed with lately (it could be anything - from food to clothing to makeup, etc)?   Mine are: - Skin care (Algenist, face masks, and serums) - Purses (bought 4 purses in one year, and continuing to look .. smh) - Starbucks (holiday drinks) - NARS creamy concealer - Bite Beauty

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?

So my Tweezerman set went missing a few days ago. I searched high and low and could not find it anywhere!! I even asked my mom if she had borrowed it or had seen it anywhere. She hadn't. It was the set with the two mini zebra-etched tweezers in the pretty silver zebra case.   I had to go downtown today so I stopped at Sephora and bought a full-size Tweezerman brow tweezer. I haven't even been home for half an hour and I found my old set underneath all my mom's crap in the bathroom!!!!   I just can't even. I'll be testing out the new tweezer to see whether it's worth keeping or not since I already opened it....   Anyone ever buy a replacement just to find the missing item the second you get home??

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?

Hey everyone, I updated the list of successful traders. Please post here if you have a successful trade with someone. I will also check with the other Topic and keep this list updated weekly!   Once a person has 5 successful trades I will bold their name, and no longer keep track of successful trades.   I am checking dates of last activity on BT - if a trader has not been active in over 1 year I will remove them from the list, if they become active again I will re-start their successful trades at 1   If you have a bad trade with someone, or you know someone who pulled shenanigans in a TSB - LET ME KNOW! I will keep a document that lists these people. Please PM this information! If you are starting a TSB or are unsure of a trade feel free to ask me for the list of Unsuccessful traders and I will send it to you     Link to the other discussion: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387   Bold = 5 or more vouchers    8/16/2015     Spoiler (Highlight to read)   4Ali4 ajf1 AMHWKI x 4 AmyC Anb0906 Annec322 AnneMCC Annypoo Aparrish Arclightlux x 2 Arielaaaaaaaa x 2 Armybeauty Aviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0t x 2 Beautytester/chicdabbler Beeberz x 2 Beethousand BrennaBombshell Brittieee Butterblume Buxombabe80 x 3 CalamityJane85 Carolang Carrie1975 Carrierose Chaotika573 x 2 Chelsss x 2 chlotam Chupi Clarks18 x 2 CuriousCannibal Daisies121 DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3 Desertdancer x 3 DesertRose0706 dioraddict DitzCore x 2 DiVWA x 2 Drrragon Eadelaide1 EllieyJelly x 2 Enableme emmy89 eriles EvangelineDamon x 3 Evno Firespinner Fluffymuha x 2 Garnett Ghkim Gogreyhound Greenchili x 3 Greenporchlights x 4 guzelkiz Gwenhwyfar hackneyfl happygen harlequinginger heartsmyface Hellvetica Heatherbee x 2 Hipquest Honeybrownbunny x 2 Hypnoticpoise Ilovebears Ireneh Itscarin x 2 Itsjaimiehere Ivyxox Jellybean917 x 3 jcmb jenfromnyc Jenji Jenpred JessicaClara x 2 Jessyiniowa Joannimation x 2 Juicytulip x 4 Jxw200 x 3 K617 Kalex Kariyava Kateye7 x 4 KatelovesYSL x 2 KayyLynn x 2 Kellsmuneoka Kellyjmolen Kiki1517 Killahbabe x 2 Kimchikween x 4 Knuevekm kristallovesdogs kristiewin kso1225 lachaton Ladymeag leopardprint Linda711 x 2 Lipstick4Soul Leopardprint Lylysa Lyravega Mafan Makeupobesessed Malday x 4 Maltipoo66 Manniface Mariahk83 Meagboho MegEm Melde x 4 Michelleshops Minibux Missey1973 x 2 Missie772 Mixe x 4 MK89 MlleCC x 2 MochaPJ Mollybb x 4 Mommyto4 x 2 Monikay Moregun89 MPolansky Mrsbaine MyChoi x 4 Nancienano Narsnarsnars Newandaddicted ngilland Nicrohr Nightknight Nikki x 3 Nishcakes x 4 Njattana x 2 Notcreative Oklady2013 Pixyfaygo x 2 Plm95 Prettyinpa Princesskat17 x 2 Redwagon44 Rhiannon1419 Rikkie Roseps135 x 2 Roxystar4 Sangova x 3 Sbowden x 3 Sdbeautyjunkie1 Shadetertiary x 3 ShannonAlexis x 4 Shirleylin88 Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3 Sn22 x 3 Sp2001 Spacesuit Sparklekai x 3 Spoiledbrat spotspotcat Sprytely x 2 Sschulte1014 Starletta8 Stephanilynn StyleLynn x 2 Sugarkenzie SuzeAlex SydBristow talinder Teresaanne92 Thesocialquota thesupergirl Tigrelili to90 tracib1981 Trishalyn Unblownkisses Vanillammm x 3 Vegchililover78 Veronika23 Wendyomgwar x 4 Wingatprsct Wonbinlover x 2 Yazmin x 3 Yenx YouAreAlways Yullz Zpsid91  4Ali4ajf1AMHWKI x 4AmyCAnb0906 Annec322AnneMCCAnnypoo AparrishArclightlux x 2Arielaaaaaaaa x 2ArmybeautyAviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0t x 2Beautytester/chicdabblerBeeberz x 2BeethousandBrennaBombshellBrittieeeButterblumeBux ombabe80 x 3CalamityJane85Carolang Carrie1975CarrieroseChaotika573 x 2Chelsss x 2chlotamChupiClarks18 x 2CuriousCannibalDaisies121DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3Desertdancer x 3DesertRose0706dioraddictDitzCore x 2DiVWA x 2DrrragonEadelaide1EllieyJelly x 2Enableme emmy89erilesEvangelineDamon x 3EvnoFirespinnerFluffymuha x 2GarnettGhkimGogreyhoundGreenchili x 3Greenporchlights x 4guzelkiz Gwenhwyfarhackneyflhappygenharlequingingerheartsmy faceHellveticaHeatherbee x 2HipquestHoneybrownbunny x 2HypnoticpoiseIlovebearsIrenehItscarin x 2ItsjaimiehereIvyxoxJellybean917 x 3jcmbjenfromnycJenjiJenpred JessicaClara x 2JessyiniowaJoannimation x 2Juicytulip x 4Jxw200 x 3K617KalexKariyavaKateye7 x 4KatelovesYSL x 2KayyLynn x 2KellsmuneokaKellyjmolenKiki1517Killahbabe x 2Kimchikween x 4Knuevekm kristallovesdogskristiewinkso1225lachatonLadymeagl eopardprintLinda711 x 2Lipstick4SoulLeopardprintLylysaLyravegaMafanMakeu pobesessed Malday x 4Maltipoo66MannifaceMariahk83MeagbohoMegEmMelde x 4MichelleshopsMinibux Missey1973 x 2Missie772Mixe x 4MK89 MlleCC x 2MochaPJMollybb x 4Mommyto4 x 2MonikayMoregun89MPolanskyMrsbaineMyChoi x 4NancienanoNarsnarsnarsNewandaddictedngillandNicro hr NightknightNikki x 3Nishcakes x 4Njattana x 2Notcreative Oklady2013Pixyfaygo x 2Plm95PrettyinpaPrincesskat17 x 2Redwagon44Rhiannon1419RikkieRoseps135 x 2Roxystar4Sangova x 3Sbowden x 3Sdbeautyjunkie1Shadetertiary x 3ShannonAlexis x 4Shirleylin88 Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3Sn22 x 3Sp2001SpacesuitSparklekai x 3SpoiledbratspotspotcatSprytely x 2Sschulte1014 Starletta8StephanilynnStyleLynn x 2SugarkenzieSuzeAlexSydBristow talinderTeresaanne92Thesocialquota thesupergirlTigrelilito90tracib1981TrishalynUnblow nkissesVanillammm x 3Vegchililover78Veronika23Wendyomgwar x 4WingatprsctWonbinlover x 2Yazmin x 3YenxYouAreAlwaysYullzZpsid91

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 ?

Hi ladies, I'm crazy for high heels. I rather wear heels than mens shoes. Some shoe store ladies have told me that I walk better with heels than most of the ladies they see. I've also have ladies ask how I can walk in heels.

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.

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's.com 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 Barneys.com 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!

Come and let everyone know if you've done a trade with someone or they've been an awesome TSB contributor! Let's give kudos to our BT BFFs!    So a post could be one persons feedback on another, how a trade went, did they ship quickly, etc. and others could reply if they dealt with the same person and how their trade went.

Has anyone noticed the revised privacy policy?   I rarely use Facebook since I found Beauty Talk due to all of the information being shared on Facebook. I like that my personal information is not blasted on BT vs FB (I have very limited personal info on FB.)   I actually read the whole policy.  In general it's very similar to various social media outlets and from the cell phone companies.  I know it's hard to avoid having certain information collected/shared. It's just kinda sad for so many reasons.

Welcome my pretties! Ok, I've been dying to start this thread. Get it...dying? So Halloween is my favorite holiday. My birthday is Nov 1st so I had combo Halloween/Birthday parties every year until I was about 10. August is when my search for all things Halloween begins in earnest. I have been digging through the web of the Internet daily, and I have finally found my first Halloween themed cosmetic items.    Please post any Halloween themed cosmetic items you run across. I'm hoping for some decent Sally Hansen Nail Effects nail stickers this year.

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
