I am an absolute animal lover. Lately, more and more videos of animals being treated cruelly are surfacing, and watching them kills me. I'm the type of person that feels bad when a moth gets smashed on my windshield while I'm driving. I would love to become a vegan, but I have no idea where to start. It will also be difficult for me because my fiance is a chef, and he loves his steak (and every other type of meat), and I know he won't do this with me. I feel like everything I eat (besides fruit and vegetables) is made with animal products. I'm also concerned that it will be a lot more expensive to buy vegan food. Is anyone here a vegan? Can someone help me start off? Are there certain stores that sell more vegan food than others? Please help!
Congrats to my dear friend Poshified who has surpassed 3,000 hearts! You came onto Beauty Talk with a BANG with your No Buy July Thread (which turned into an enabler thread!!) and you have been here ever since with your Top Tuesday Thread that we all love!!! I am so glad that we became friends and makeup soul sisters!!! Here is to many more hearts for you and I love seeing you around Beauty Talk all the time and I hope you never leave!!! Many more highlighters for you! Including the Guerlain Cruel Gardenia. And of course many vintage Guerlain meteorites (ie "magic balls") What's a party without some Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders? It is definitely not a party without some YSL blushes and lippies as well!!! And it is definitely NOT a heart party without some hearts and Chanel!!! (And of course some humor!!!) We love you Poshified and I hope you have a GREAT heart party!!!
One of them even had four samples! I was really confused because the box on the left was so big and I got kind of excited because maybe delirious me sent me a surprise gift but.. it was just a normal package and they probably ran out of regular boxes because it didn't say sephora anywhere on it haha I know, I'm wasteful with packaging... I just couldnt make up my mind and made little orders also, the bite set looks so cute and wonderful! too bad rhubarb was broken so I have to go exchange it in store tomorrow
Haven't seen these in a while, so I thought I'd write some up. Hope there aren't any repeats from recent ones! 1. What is your favorite thing about winter? 2. What is the weirdest quirk you have, if any? 3. Imagine you’ve been invited by <insert chat show host’s name here) to be on his/her show. Who would it be, and what would you talk about/be promoting? 4. What’s one beauty product that is overhyped/just not worth it, in your opinion? 5. What’s one beauty product that you think is worth every last penny/can’t live without it? 6. What are your most trusted beauty brands (high end and/or drugstore)? 1. What is your favorite thing about winter? hot chocolate 2. What is the weirdest quirk you have, if any? I love fiction a little too much and constantly make references to fictional characters. People often don't follow. :-/ 3. Imagine you’ve been invited by <insert chat show host’s name here) to be on his/her show. Who would it be, and what would you talk about/be promoting? I'd love to be a published writer one day, so it would be amazing to be invited by Craig Ferguson. We'd talk about my bestseller and Doctor Who. (I should probably start churning out book ideas if I want to realize this dream, lol) 4. What’s one beauty product that is overhyped/just not worth it, in your opinion? Nars Orgasm blush. It's nice, but no more special than my other blushes 5. What’s one beauty product that you think is worth every last penny/can’t live without it? Philosophy Miracle Worker retinoid pads 6. What are your most trusted beauty brands (high end and/or drugstore)? I have complete faith in anything produced by Too Faced and Ole Henriksen!
Hi everyone!!! This is a follow up post to my male celebrity crushes post from a few weeks ago! If you could marry any male celebrity, who would it be? I would marry Henry Cavill. That man is fineeeeeee. But he's 12 years older than me I have him as my phone background and my computer screen saver 3, 2, 1, GO!!!! P.S. I really should be studying for my finals but, I'm too stressed, tired, and don't want to anymore. :/
Thought I'd start a non-makeup thread on those times inside a Sephora store when we've unknowingly been placed on the spot -- and possibly blushing every shade of pink one could imagine. -During a recent trip, the employee who rang me up practically yelled, "You have XXXX points!!! Would you like to redeem anything from our display?" Needless to say, everyone standing around the register turned to look at me, and I could see the wheels turning in their heads as to how much I've spent. Clearly they've missed the memo that 4X points was a few months prior and that I'm a points hoarder. -One pushy (borderline getting on my nerves) MUA asked which UD or YSL eyeshadow I had on, since the color was extremely vibrant and glittery on my eyes. It was neither but, in fact, a L'oreal Infallible. The plus side was that I was able to shop in peace after telling her that Share away, folks!
So McDonalds decided to start serving poutine across Canada. I'm pretty sure it was available in the Quebec McDonalds but now it's gonna be across the country. This kinda annoys me even if I don't like McDonalds (probably because I had too much late night McDick's back in college).... I mean they are ruining a national dish!!! If people who never had poutine before decide to have it from McDonalds for the first time... pretty sure they won't like it... ah! marde de clown! My fellow Canucks what do you think? My American friends... never have poutine at McDonalds! THIS IS NOT POUTINE THIS IS POUTINE End of rant!
Can we start a thread of all of sephora's events and promos and when they are? Im updating as more people add on to the thread! One time 10% off for vibs with a code every year 2x points on skincare (jan? mar? Please confirm ) 15% off in April 2-4x points promo (august) 20% off friends and family sale (October?) vib 20% off sale in November 15-20$ off 50 in the beginning of dec 3x points for fragrance late December? (Anyone hear of this to confirm?) 25 days of 100pt perks and deluxe samples 20% off sales on christmas what about in the earlier years? I want to plan my hauls accordingly and I'm sure most of you do too! so ladies(men?) do you remember all the promos and sales?
Hi girls! So I ordered quite a few of the $10 steals and I thought it would be fun for us to write up mini review on them for each other. Mine arrived last night, so I've only tried two so far. Eyeko Mascara/Eyeliner (still available) I was SO excited to try the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner.... and it wasn't very pigmented. Maybe it is a little dry and I need to shake it up (??) and try again tomorrow. I'll report back. I haven't tried the mascara yet but the wand is very unique. http://www.sephora.com/skinny-mini-duo-P377021?sku Id=1470962 Caudalie Hand Cream and Lip Conditioner Duo (sold out- individual links below) I had been wanting to try the lip conditioner and I constantly use hand lotion so this was perfect for me. The lip conditioner is very smooth and smells nice. The hand lotion smells sooooo good (sort of citrusy?) and my hands feel lovely! What do you guys think of your $10 sets? http://www.sephora.com/lip-conditioner-P6034?skuId =241653 http://www.sephora.com/h-nail-cream-P152203?skuId= 941609
I've gotten a number of requests to photograph the ridiculous amount of nail polishes on my desk, but I've always been too busy (and embarrassed) to do it. Well, our team photographer took the matter into her own hands, grabbing a bunch for this beautiful shot featured on our Instagram yesterday.
This photo is, sadly, only about a third of my (office) collection (home is an entirely different beast), but I thought my BTers would be interested in getting a peek (especially if you don't follow Sephora on Instagram , which, um, why not ?). This is how the Mani Friday magic happens, ladies!

Okay...here's the deal. It's time for me to make room for baby stuff for the new addition coming in April (Yippeee!!!!). I decided to take a look at everything I have but don't use anymore--and I have quite a few things. Most of the things I have and dont' use are because I love the products but my sensative skin won't allow me to use them. Here's my list: Bare Minerals eye shadows in: onyx (liner), mystery, denim, sugar plum and masquerade Buxom shimmer shadows in Beagle and Pug Make Up Forever Aqua Creme Shadows in Aqua Black and Shade 54 Sephora Shadows in midnight kiss, caroline's pride and armelle Bare Minerals Foundation in Fairly Medium, mineral veil and warmth make Up Forever HD Liquid Foundation in N130 (I think that's the sade number--it's a medium/light shade) VS Pro Bronzing Face Primer VS Tinted Moisturizer/Primer Delux Samples of: Sephora pin-up pink lip gloss (still in wrapper) Sephora Instant Moisturizer (never used) Kat Von D Powder Foundation in Medium 54 9Still in wrapper) Smashbox under eye primer (opened, but not used) Products that have been used: boscia clear complexion tonic Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover Murad exfoliating acne treatment gel and spot treatment Boscia BB cream Fragrances--Full size bottle, most of them barely used: Georgio Armani Acqua di Dioia 1oz bottle and 3.4 oz bottle Ibiza Sol Urban Flowers Paris Urban Flowers London Pur Blanca- Blossom Just Play Philosophy You are Divine Philosophy Love Sweet Love U by Ungaro for her (Four 1.7 oz bottles, still in wrapper)--I love this stuff, but it doesn't love me back :-( Skin So soft Satin Glow Glow Gel (seven 6.7 oz bottle, still sealed) Full Size mark mascara in jet black Few misc eyeshadow colors and lotions Some of the products are used! I know that they are clean and all that...I never use my fingers for dipping into my make-up and I'm not including anything that is not hygenic...like used mascara! And...I'm giving all this away to whoever wants it. If you want it, PM me. but there are a few rules...I'm giving this away because I hope someone can use this stuff. I don't want any trouble and I won't be liable for anything--not that I'm not 100% confident that all these products are perfectly good and all that, but I don't want someone trying to sue me cause one of the lotions made them break out...ok. I'll ship to anywhere in the US, adn I'd like to get this to the post office on Thursday when I go mail out my Christmas presents. I will package everything very carefully and put anything liquid in ziploc bags. But I can't be responsible for any damage that might happen during shipping. I really, seriously just want to give this stuff to someone that can use it, without any trouble. And if there is anything about this post that is against the rules or guidelines, please let me know! I read through them and didn't see anything that would be, but I don't want to be banned from the most awesome forum ever!
This morning my husband accidentally spilled his coffee all over my vanity...right on my beautiful display do Urban Decay palettes. I learned they are NOT coffee-proof! While that was a might bit disappointing...I actually felt worse for him...he felt terrible! And he says "those were probably expensive....probably like twenty bucks or something." Thinking no comment from me....but I hope they dry out! Yikes!
Confession: I have never been able to wash my face in the sink without making a mess. Water gets all over the counter (and everything on the counter), drips down my arms and off my elbows, goes down my shirt, and soaks the front of my hair. I am not exaggerating. As a result, I have almost exclusively reserved face washing for the shower. But now that I'm trying to take better care of my skin (and wash my face twice a day), the "in the shower" thing doesn't cut it. What am I doing wrong?! Why am I such a mess? Does this happen to anyone else, and have you found any ways to stop the flooding?
I can't remember which thread it was on, but one of y'all mentioned Nordstrom's Rack having makeup and beauty products. And, dang, sure enough mine did!! How'd I NOT know this? Well... this is what just one shelf looked like, and there were about 5 like this: And, why yes that DOES day UD eyeliner for under $4... And I got ALL these polishes!! Ack!
I ordered from beauty dot com and received it in less than 24 hours! (I live in NYC). I've used them before for many years and it's always taken a few days to process and ship. I ordered: Skyn Iceland Arctic Hydrating Balm Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cleanser Deluxe sample of Skyn Pure Cloud Cream (gwp) Juice Beauty foil trio (free sample) Sibu exfoliating scrub (free sample) DDG extra strength alpha beta peel (free sample) Cepacol sensations oral pain reliever (bonus free sample) Plus I searched the internet for $10 off $50 coupon code. They often have tiered coupon codes and 20% off. Right now they have 25% off holiday beauty gift sets. Now I love Sephora for make-up. But when it comes to skin care, I buy from other sites that have 20% off like skinstore (almost always has 20% off) and dermstore that always offer gwp. Any else use these sites or have recommendations for others?
Did anyone else get sucked in to Ulta's cyber monday and still not even get a shipping notice? I never order from Ulta but they had some gifts I missed out on or didn't have at Sephora (the $10 Art of Shaving kit for my BIL, a $19 Bare Minerals kit for my SIL) and the free gift looked nice. I ordered just after midnight on sunday night/monday morning and it still says "order processing" and since it's been 5 days the pending charges aren't even on m CC anymore. I know other people are having the same issues because their Facebook page is blowing up and they sent an email out letting everyone know they are experiencing delays. They said it will still be here within 10 business days (which is really 2 weeks) but I am not confident my order will complete or have the free gift (if something is OOS it will mess up my christmas shopping because I thought I was done). I get it's shopping season, but in comparison, all my other holiday orders have been here for a few days. My Sephora CM order that I placed late on Monday got here Wednesday. My giftopia order was only 1 or 2 days behind, which wasn't bad at all. I'm on day 6 with Ulta. Anyone else having holiday shipping woes or get sucked into Ulta? I knew I was a Sephora girl before, but I can say with confidence now that Sephora > Ulta. Plus, Sephora's CS has always been good to me. Ulta doesn't seem to be handling this well. UPDATE: I received a shipping notice last night 12/9 for 2 of my items. It says the label was created so I'm not sure when I am getting them. At least I will be getting them. STILL waiting for 3 other items to ship/praying they aren't out of stock. If they are, I "loved" 3 back up Christmas gifts from Sephora. Hopefully I will know soon if I need to pull the trigger! 2ND UPDATE: Finally got a shipping notice when I woke up this morning 12/11. It *should* all be here Friday. I'm just glad I got the shipping notice. It wasn't about WHEN it would get here, it was about IF it would get here--especially since everything except the GWP was Christmas gifts for other people.
Hi, everyone! I know that with Christmas coming up, we BeautyTalkers look for beauty bargains on discount sites. Here's how to check if you bought expired makeup: 1) Google checkcosmetic and click on the first site. 2) On the left where it says Cosmetic Calculator, choose the item's brand . 3) Find the batch number on your makeup. Most of the time it's stamped on the outer packaging/box, and it's a mix of numbers and letters, like A27. 4) The production month and year should come up. Ewww, January 2007... This should help when you're buying makeup from sites like eBay and Amazon, so you don't waste money on discounted, expired makeup. Even if it seems new, I feel like using an expired product from an unknown person is still... questionable. Of course, check if any seals are broken, packaging design is wrong, etc. etc. Just a tip I'd thought to share. Happy shopping! <3
The holidays are my favorite time of the year, but not gonna lie, after attending the 6th party / dinner / white elephant gift swap in as many days, I start yearning for a Boscia Black Mask , my PJs and my DVR. I can't be alone in this.
So for this week's Challenge, I want to know: What do you do to de-stress? It doesn't have to be beauty related, but since this is BeautyTalk, I'd love to know what products, if any, you use to relax.
Show & Tell!
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
Hey girls, I was at the mall today and on my way to Sephora and this young representative for a new brand called ' Orogold Cosmetics ' approached me. The store is very sleek and luxurious and looks like it's catered to high end clientele. She was ' testing ' out some products she recommended for me on my wrist. Then tried to con me into purchasing the products which I said no and would consider coming back. I go to their website and they are selling skincare that is for people who have MEGA BUCKS !. I get that it's 24K gold inside your stuff but selling it in a mall where I live ain't going to fly unless your rich. I'd suggest they go to Yorkville where the most ELITE shop in Toronto. What I found disturbing is that she's trying to say my purchases are going to irratate my skin and that the Amore Pacific stuff isn't as good. I don't care if you got 24K S**T in there I ain't buying it !. PLEASE AVOID THIS BRAND, THEY WILL SCAM YOU AND HARASS YOU !!!
Which Benefit Box-O-Powders do you have & (If you have more than one) 1.Which is your favorite? 2.Which one do you use during Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter? 3.Which is your least favorite? 4. Would you buy more? I currently have 3, Rockateur, Coralista & BellaBamba (on the way SugarBomb, Hervana & Dallas) 1. I love Rockateur, it looks amazing. 2. Coralista for Spring & Summer & BellaBamba for Winter Rockateur for Fall (thats how I would use them.. but I dont) 3.No unfavorites yet 4. Yes I just did (& I will)
I have been receiving progressively less samples with my orders. One of my Black Friday orders was missing one and now another order from last week is missing two. I like samples and don't mind substitutions. O welli guess.
Ladies, I hope none of you are farding while driving. It's dangerous and potentially deadly. My boyfriend caught me farding today a nd I was so embarrassed. If you haven't caught on yet..... Fard 1: paint (the face) with cosmetics 2:archaic : to gloss over
(Not to be confused with the Nordstrom's fashion rewards!) I would call this Nordstrom's version of Beauty Insider as membership is free, and every 100 pt qualifies for a deluxe-sized sample and 500 pts a "premium beauty reward." Apparently this program is still in initial stages, and only a handful of stores are currently participating. Online beauty purchases count towards the points but rewards can only be redeemed at the participating stores at the moment. List of participating stores: Cherry Creek Shopping Center, Christiana Mall, City Creek Center, Easton Town Center, Fashion Mall, Freehold Raceway Mall, International Plaza, Montclair Plaza, Oakbrook Center, Park Meadows, Roosevelt Field, Saint Louis Galleria, San Francisco Centre, Scottsdale Fashion Square, Spokane, The Mall at Green Hills, The Shops at Mission Viejo, Town Center at Boca Raton, Valley Fair and Waterside. Thoughts? Has anyone redeemed said reward(s)?
