Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014


Overall trades have gone very well and many cosmetic items have found themselves new homes! Smiley Very Happy However, there have been some trades that have not gone as well, so this trade post has been revised – please read it carefully!




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: 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.



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.



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!



Consider providing your feedback on successful trades on this thread here:

Happy trading!

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Love the new guidelines, Syd! Thanks for taking the time to make a new thread with new info for us all Smiley Happy You're great!

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Thanks JenJen!  I hope the new info will be a little more helpful in protecting people on both sides of trades!  Smiley Happy  It was developed with the feedback of quite a few people.

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Excellent additions Syd! Great ideas

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Also, if your post is going to be super long, USE SPOILERS! This way the whole page won't be filled with 10 gigantic pictures, and those who are interested can click the spoiler


to expand the post and see the pictures without the thread being 17243 pages long cuz of 3 posts or something.


Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Oh neat idea!

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

You's a smart cookie

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Really like this idea, but do you know if it will interfere with search functions?

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

I added the spoiler info to the main post.  Smiley Happy Thanks for the info!!

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

That's a good idea BT! Smiley Happy

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Batter up....Syd to the's a home run!  Smiley Happy

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Due to a string of some bad trades and TSBs, I will only trade with vouched for traders/TSBers/Active BTers.


I;m building the list and will bump this post when new items are added, but wanted to get this started (or else I'll never get around to posting Smiley Tongue)



  • Dolce & Gabbana, shine lipstick, #110 Plum - tried once (sanitized), with box


  • tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in adored (new) - picture pending


  • Chanel - Frisson - nearly full (used once), a little goo on the side of the bottle where I had put a sticky indicating when I bought it (5/2013), will try goo-be-gone to get rid of it



Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

There’s not a lot on my “in search of” list but if you’re interested in anything, please let me know what you have. I reserve the right to trade with only someone I feel comfortable with (I had a bad trade myself) – prefer people who have positive feedback. Also am hoping to do fewer trades with more items, as shipping costs each time can really add up. I am in the US and plan to ship via USPS first class with insurance and tracking or priority with insurance and tracking – I would expect the same. Super busy schedule right now so I will be very up front in my communication on when I can ship something out. I am listing where I acquired my items in light of the recent fakes that have been appearing.


  • LORAC Liquid Lustre 3D in Diamond (this one has been swatched on the back of my hand, I have a brand new one expected late next week if you want a brand new one) This one from Sephora, the new one direct from LORAC.
  • Black eyeliner pencils in Makeup Forever (still sealed), NARS (unused), LORAC (used once and resharpened). All acquired from Sephora.
  • Tarte blushes, barely used, in Imagined and Treasured, slightly smaller sized, purchased direct from Tarte. Imagined is super pink, beautiful – but too much for my incredibly pale skin.
  • Origins lip glosses – received as a gift but not used, were acquired from Macy’s.
  • Tarte lipsurgence lippie in Enamored, acquired in a Tarte set in a trade (but I can’t wear reds).
  • Blinc eyebrow mousse in Light Brunette, still sealed, purchased from Hautelook. (I also have Dark Brunette still new and sealed, since I have Anastasia Dipbrown I probably don’t need that one either.)
  • Stila blackberry lip glaze, full size, unused, direct from Stila.
  • Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, unused, 100 point perk from Sephora.
  • LORAC highlighter bronzer duo, unused, purchased from Sephora.
  • Alterna Caviar shampoo and conditioners, unused, from Beauty dot com and Ulta, 1.35oz each
  • Ulta moisturizer, unused, freshwater mist.
  • NYX makeup sponge, unused, direct from NYX.
  • Devacurl cream samples (this stuff is awesome! I purchased full size) from Sephora.
  • Bamboo Kendi Oil Mist .85oz, unused, from Sephora.
  • Bare Minerals small matte foundation in medium, original foundation in medium, mineral veil, and bisque concealer, all unused. Either from Sephora or a local higher end makeup shop.
  • Not shown: LORAC eyeshadow in Serenity, reserved first for the ladies who posted on the Serenity thread because it's their HG product.  I have it coming direct from LORAC later this week.


Please PM me if interested!




Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014



I have a NUME reverse curling wand I would like to trade. it works amazing.



I just honestly rarely ever have time to do my hair!  

I have used it literally 3 times.

This is why I think I should trade it, haha!.

It needs to live somewhere it'll be used constantly and given the love and attention it's deserved!

Comes with the Nume glove. Also attached is a photo of the last time I used it on my hair.





I have done tons of succesful trades on here and am on the good trades lists.

Unfortunately bangs annoys me and makes my eyebags look 100000x bigger. =/


ps. *whispers* you are not allowed to post outside links.

Re: Trade Thread THREE - 02/2014

Ok, an odd ISO (hahaha, about half dozen ladies responded last time when I asked what it was stand for, and I already forgot it again. Yay goldfish memory!):

- Urban Decay Feminine palette case. I am absolutely in love with the purple zipper pouch, but I seriously have no interest whatsoever for any of the items in it. I have not seen picture evidence of this, but I am told that you can take the cardboard/palette/mirror out, and sounds like it can survive without the case.


EDIT: resolved, curtesy of the spoiledbrat. Heart
