I have a TikTok account but have no idea how to make a video! ‌😂‌ Any tips on how to use the app?! Its probably bc Im hella old (turned 40 in July! Yikes!)!! I'm @baseball_jen21 on TikTok! Any advice from anyone who gets how to use it - message me & lmk! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Happy Holidays to you all! 🎉

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Hey @BaseballJen, just followed you on IG & TikTok (I’m @ coralista.meesta). TikTok lets you upload pre-recorded videos to their platform. I just selected a sound bite I wanted to use from Sephora and layered it on top of an IG video I had taken previously. I’m still pretty new to the platform so I’ll tag @Tamara76 in case she has more tips 😊

Natasha Denona Glam Face & Eye Palette Dark 

 

This is my fave item from the sale.  It's such a nicely curated palette.  Perfect for those who love nudes 😂😉, but also a great palette for glam/everyday.  It works well with a lot of her other palettes.  I know it went OOS, but I would try to BOPIS this one.

 

Also picked up these beauties earlier for the fall sale Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Resting Peach Face Cream Blush & Mini Gloss Bomb Cream Duo , Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Glossy Posse: Fantasy 4Sum 4-Piece Gloss Bomb Set .  I'm loving peach pout at this moment, so comfortable on the lips.

 

Might pick up Danessa Myricks Beauty Twin Flames Liquid Eyeshadow .  Just got two of them, now I'm hooked.  The shifts are cool and I've blended them out well with other palettes, but they stand up well on their own.

I did some damage but I had a gift card plus the sale to justify it. I finally went for Natasha Denona Biba All Neutral Eyeshadow Palette Full Size Biba Neutral Eyeshadow Palette Charlotte Tilbury Super Nudes Easy Eyeshadow Palette PAT McGRATH LABS Divine Blush + Glow Trio PAT McGRATH LABS Major Mini Lip Trios Divine Rose.  I can not wait for my order. I know I love CT and ND formulas and really looking forward to trying out some Pat McGrath.

I love shopping 🛍!!! @TeamBIC  I’ve got some perfumes and MILK MAKEUP Hydro Grip Primer 1.52 oz/ 45 mL  which is my all time fave 

I also want to try the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray 3.3 oz / 100 ml 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Can The 20% be used in store also or is it only online??

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@EstherMM you can use online

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@EstherMM It can be used online or in store but only once.

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

EEEEE! I thought this was till the 24th. Good thing I saw this thread. I bought two moisture kits already so I will probably go with lilah b. Mini Aglow Golden Priming Oil 0.33 oz/ 10 mL  as I will actually be needing that soon. I've been seeing people love #Necessaire body wash and I am wondering what all the hype is about.  # Also, I might buy another lipstick. I have been eyeing a couple brands for awhile but have never tried them out so I have been afraid to take the plunge because they are expensive.Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Mat Matte Lipstick  and Valentino Mini Rosso Valentino Lipstick  are the two brands. I am a sucker for fancy packaging. I've been obsessing over chocolate colored lipstick lately and I saw Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Cream Lipstick Chocolat Divin . Not sure why I've been obsessing but there it is!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@Margalee the lipsticks look beautiful!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Oooh, lovely choices! Enjoy those lippies! @Margalee 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Yes, good thing you didn't miss this thread @Margalee ! Always a good time to pick up a luxury lip product or two, hurts the bank account less 🤣

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@Margalee Ooooh you have great taste in lipstick! 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I bought my bestie the Nécessaire The Body Ritual kit!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Nice gift! @digopheliadug 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Ahh your bestie is going to love this @digopheliadug 😍 Great choice!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

What a thoughtful gift, @digopheliadug 😀

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

NOTHING!  Because I did a "pick up in store" order, the items went out of stock and I can't use the promo code again.  Lesson learned - DO NOT USE the single use codes this way in the future! 🙄

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I also did this same thing and my items went out of stock in the store! I cancelled my remaining pick up order and chatted with customer service online.  Once my online basket was ready they placed the order for me and applied the 20% off coupon! Super smooth and easy process! Hope this helps!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Oh no @shoppingprincess 😞  Sorry about this, I agree with @shoppingprincess . Give customer service a try! 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Thanks for the suggestion!  But I did online chat with customer service, unfortunately they just told me to cancel the rest of the order (which was Sephora Collection) and that's it.  I really don't beg a company to spend money with them.  I just learned a decent lesson about these codes, hope others take note too!  Thanks for your response 🙂
