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 !

I burnt my neck with a curling wand and it's gonna leave a big scar
For the past seven or so years I've curled my hair using a straight iron. I had my hair cut about about two months ago and figured I should try and baby those freshly cut NON SPLIT ends along for as long as possible. I bought a schmancy curling wand for when I wanted to do wavy hair because I realized I wouldn't have to drag the ends of my hair through searing heat! Yay! I'm so smart! Look at me! Look at -- oooowwww Oh My God what have I done?    So somehow while curling I laid the top of the iron against my neck and got an awful burn. That was about 1.5 weeks ago. It's still scabbing over and healing and I still have to wear scarves, hoodies pulled tight around my neck and bandages in public.    The outer parts of the wound are already scarring. I've had a lot of surgery and, TBH, normally I don't care about scarring. But this looks like a giant hickey in the exact place you'd expect to find a giant hickey.    So TL;DR best recommendations on how to get a scar to fade/heal? How to speed up the healing of the burn wound? (I have a prescription antibiotic similar to Neosporin I've been using - should I do anything else?) And in the worst case scenario, best makeup to hide a new, dark pink/red scar. sorry for the novel!

I got the Beauty Blues :'(
Just coming here to vent my anger/sadness to people who  might  understand. I could barely sleep last night for being so upset. So I basically placed a small order with Ulta so I could yank that cute gwp they had last week. I noticed that Ulta ships via UPS-SurePost which means UPS will deliver your package to your local post office, and the post office will make the final delivery. Now I usually have packages delivered to my office but I decided to have this one delivered to my home believing that the postal guy would just leave that little pink ticket in my box telling me I could pick it up at the post office (this is always the case). Unfortunately when I went to check the tracking online I got the notice that the US postal service left my package doorside at 2:14 in the afternoon...AAAHHHHH!!!!! Spoiler (Highlight to read)   Are you kidding me??!! I live in a New York City apartment building which basically means I could have a mafia boss, a wealthy scam artist and a crackhead all living on the same floor!! And the US postal delivery guy decides to leave my package somewhere outside my door??!!! It was too late to call the post office (not like they'd answer the phone anyway) so I called Ulta even though none of this is their fault. I was already in tears by the time I spoke to the rep but she was as calm and collected as possible while I was practically hyperventilating. She apologized for my loss and offered to issue me a e-gift certificate in the amount that I'd spent. I asked if that mint green purse w/ goodies was still available as a gwp and it wasn't..bummer. But she did advise me that I could hold off on re-ordering until Wednesdays when they have their beauty break and another gwp will be available. I wish I could remember her name so I could go on Ulta and praise her for being such a calm, collected professional while on the phone with a crazed maniac (me).    Still (*sigh*) the feeling of having your things taken when you've spent your hard-earned money to buy them and you're sitting and waiting patiently for your stuff...just unbearable!! I went into a frenzy, cursed every living soul in my building, threw my phone up against the wall (thx HTC for making indestructable phones) and yelled so loudly my husband and 2 cats went into hiding. I couldn't sleep for being so angry so now I'm at work with red puffy eyes looking like a zombie! I know in the grand scheme of things, it was a small purchase, I'm kinda getting the money back and geez nobody died! I just hate that my stuff was stolen and needed to vent.    Thanks for being listening BT *hugs*

WHO IS/ARE YOUR FAVORITE CARTOON CHARACTER(S) OR CARTOON AND WHY?
I was just laying here surfing the web and I started thinking about cartoon characters (Random I know). I have alot I really like; Rugrats, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Rocco's Modern Life. But my favorite characters are from Ahh Real Monsters! Oblina looks  like a black and white candycane with  red lipstick, Ickus is just adorable with those big ears, I LOVE The Gromble because he was a male character wearing awesome red heels, and Krumm.....well being able to hold your eyes seems like a pretty cool thing to be able to do. These shows were all popular when my kids were young so that probably has alot to do with my fondness of them......great memories.  Who is/are your favorite characters(s) or what's your favorite cartoon and why?

Drama at the workplace
So, I'm a single lady but recently I experienced heaven when my eyesight came across the most handsome guy I've seen that looks like he could be Lee Pace brother. Sigh. So cute. Anyway. We're not in the same department but I recently found out his name through a friend. She knows about it, oh and she has come to be one of my best work friends. So the drama comes in where there's a new girl that is just starting with us, I'm still new but as you all know, I've already had a month or so of experience and she's fresh out of training. Anyway I made the mistake of telling her about him and now she's obsessed. I'm sure I'm just being paranoid but since I don't have the confidence most women have, I feel like somehow she could woo him. And not to have a high ego but I am pretty, I am nice, etc but I still worry. Anyways, didn't necessarily write this for advice, just to vent it out. Not many people are happy with her behavior and she's new.. so that kind of sucks for her.

BT Etiquette
Okay, I'll point out the obvious, I'm extremely new to Beauty Talk. I'm just wondering if there is a hidden hierarchy/etiquette/agenda that I need to be aware of before I fully submerge myself in the beautiful world of BT. I've attempted to participate, but I've held myself back in fear of being that creepy guy at parties who just rolls on up out of nowhere. I want to be apart of this great community going on, but I just don't know how to exactly.   I would love some tips on how to integrate myself fashionably, and not seem extremely awkward by just inserting myself in conversations.   I appreciate any input I can get 😘 thanks everyone!

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?

hey ladies, have you heard about this super awesome program by Dior. i think more companies should have this kind of reward system for their loyal customers (hello Chanel and YSL, I'm looking at you).     What is the Dior Diva program?

The Canadian Peeps!
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.   ETA:   Where to shop!   So I do have a list/link somewhere with brands and where they are found.  I'll try and dig it out and if you want it pm me   For those who don't know...   Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have a wonderful loyalty program and your points are worth "cash" in store.   The Bay is bringing in more brands... just recently Burberry. I'm thinking we will see more good things come.  They also have a VIP program... I am not too sure how it all works but it applies to all purchases from the store and you get a 20$ off 100$ makeup purchase coupon almost every month... Like who wouldn't want that!  Hello MAC!   Beautylish ships to Canada and they are FAST!  Order processed and shipped within the hour and arrives the next day!   Now that we have Nordies in Canada you might be able to call a counter and get items shipped to you.  Some things you can get shipped from the site.   Apparently Saks is coming.  I believe The Bay is the one who will be owning them and bring them in.   If you get a good SA at Holts you can also get stuff shipped to you.   Sorry been MIA from this board a long time.

Complexion Rescue fail
I loved the samples I got at the end of March of the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and how it made me look like I had a full night's rest when I don't (toddler fun), so I bought the full size when it was available at Sephora at the beginning of April.    I've used it maybe a handful of times (you really don't need much at ALL) and went to use it and work it's magic this morning only to find that the product SEPARATED.  All that came out was watery and not cool.  The consistency is usually that of Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer.    I'll be taking it back to Sephora tomorrow and exchanging it, but if this happens again, I'll be returning it completely for a refund.  Not cool, especially since I loved using it before this was discovered this morning!

A strange question to ask....
hi guys, OK so I know this is an extremely weird and strange question to ask and i'm terribly sorry it has nothing to do with makeup etc but I can't get answers anywhere else...so for a long time now I have been extremely self conscious with my breast size. I am 18 in november this year and I know i'm still very young but they just dont seem to be growing and i just don't feel like a girl due to having barely anything there. i'm a 32C BUT thats with alot of padding i dont have much there really. im not flat chested but they could pass a man **bleep** really...I HATE the size they are and i just want a good breast size that will make me feel confident WITHOUT having to have breast implants I have tried massaging them and doing breast exercises, and also tried breast enhancing chewing gum!! any advice???? ALSO i asked my doctor about how i can put weight on and he just keeps telling me to eat more meals etc, I have a fast metabolism so it doesn't work! i am 5ft4 and just over 8 stone in weight. PLEASE help, ANY advice i would really appreciate. I just cant seem to get anywhere  thank you so much, louise  xo

Show us your vanity/make up set up!
I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities.     I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way.  This is my set up for now.   Whats your set up like?

I started this in Greenie's thread, but, people suggested to make a new thread for this, so here we are...   So, Spring is finally here. Or... sort of....
