Successful Trades or TSB Experiences!

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.

Re: Successful Trades or TSB Experiences!

I traded a Sephora giftcard for a BNIB MAC Heaux from the Rihanna collection from beethousand... she shipped it to me quickly and the product arrived in perfect condition. And I'm already a little obsessed with the color. Wearing it now!!


Oh and did I mention my order came with 3 free samples?? lol!! She threw in some extra fragrance samplers for me and unlike with ordering from Sephora, I didn't get gypped! Teehee Smiley Wink

Re: Successful Trades or TSB Experiences!

Also just recieved yours love love love all the little surprises thrown in! The biggest surprise was probably your card, what a wonderful line of work I've been looking into americore and the peace core so learning what the meta peace team is really struck my have no idea how much I needed to learn about this I will have to message you about that! 


This is girl right here is amazing ladies and gents!! Smiley Happy

Re: Successful Trades or TSB Experiences!


She was one of the first to contact me when the trade thread started. Communication was super easy and fast, she offered a Sephora gift card for the items plus shipping and I received it right away. Smiley Happy I would trade with her again! Smiley Happy

Re: Successful Trades or TSB Experiences!


You must have the worlds greatest makeup stash!

The things you have traded away are most peoples Holy Grails.  I want to know what things are your Holy Grails.  What have the rest of us not discovered yet Smiley Happy



Re: Successful Trades or TSB Experiences!

I'm still a makeup newbie!! Smiley Very Happy  I have a ton to learn from all you ladies on BT.  I am just very budget-conscious, and like to be very selective about what I add to my makeup collection so it doesn't get too out of hand. Smiley Very Happy


I absolutely loved the LM Artist's Palette, but half of the colors (the more purple-y ones) didn't look amazing on my skin tone.  (I absolutely adored "Bamboo" though... sigh).  I have also decided that I must have the new NARSissist palette, but could not justify adding another eye shadow palette to my collection without getting rid of one.  (I'm now down to just Naked 1 & Naked Basics.)


As for the HG Ambient Lighting Palette, it just didn't do much for me.  I used the money I got from the trade to purchase Guerlain Meteorites in Teint Beige, and I am absolutely loving the Meteorites so far (they arrived in the mail just yesterday)!


The Stila palettes were meant to be gifts, but I ended up gifting other things instead.  Thought I would send them off to a new home and save another BT member from having to pay full price! Smiley Very Happy


Since you asked, though... my HG products are...



  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
  • Clarisonic Mia + Acne Cleansing Brush Head
  • Caudalie Moisturizing Toner
  • Clinique All About Eyes
  • Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Morning Eye Rescue
  • Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst-Quenching Serum
  • Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM
  • Clinique Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturizer



  • Lorac "I'm So Sensitive" Soothing Face Primer
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed
  • Physician's Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black
  • Clinique Lash Power Mascara Long-Wearing Formula in Black Onyx
  • Urban Decay Naked 1
  • Too Faced La Crème Lipsticks in Naked Dolly and Spice Spice Baby
  • Guerlain Météorites Pearls in Teint Beige Heart


Still in search of my HG foundation, but wearing Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Foundation in Golden Beige today (just purchased from my local store last night, and need to give it a few days to see if it's really the one!).


Also hoping that the NARSissist palette I'm planning to order from Nordstrom on Feb. 1 will be worthy of being added to my list above!!

Re: Successful Trades or TSB Experiences!
