I am in the market for a good brand of makeup removing wipes. The wipes I use now are all drugstore, and they generally dry my skin. I am starting to run out of that pack, and so I thought i might look into buying a new brand of one. I am very picky about my skincare products, because my skin is very sensitive and is super acne prone. I do not want to dry my skin out, and so I am looking into a good brand. I was wondering if you can get a sample of that product from sephora. I generally try out products at the store itself, but I don't want to take off my masterpiece at the store itself, so I was wondering if they give samples of those.
I know Friday barely started and there are so many good deals out there, let's share what we all got! So far I've only ordered two pairs of boots from Torrid and some cute underwear from Victoria's Secret. What did you guys buy?

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!
There is a line that has buried itself in my heart (and my pocketbook), and it is Guerlain. I know Im not the only one out there. I thought I would start this thread for the discussion of all things Guerlain, skin care, makeup, perfume, places to get good gwp or good samples. Experiences people have had, looks people have created with the products. For me it all started with a makeover by Guerlain's own Marie Line at my local Neiman Marcus. She spent an hour with me and I left feeling calm and happy. As a mother of 4 year old twins and as a doctor I spend my live rushing through the day, often without enough sleep, more often without enough water, taking care of everyone else. It shows on my face, in the fatigue in my eyes, in the puffiness and dark circles under them. While I have been blessed with good skin it can be confused, aging (I bought my guerlain the day prior to my 40th birthday), but still with an oily t zone, and with patchy dry spots on my cheeks likely from the dry air in my medical work environment. One of the things she said to me was- make it about a ritual for you, and dont leave it until your going to fall asleep. I walked out with the orchidee imperiele gel cream, eye and lip cream and white/brightenining serum. It was a birthday gift to myself. And now every night I sit down for 15 minutes and wash my face and slowly carry through the ritual. a ritual of energy expended and renewed. Breathing in the soft smell of the orchids. Im still using a cleanser and exfoliator from another line given how much I spent, but I have seen substantial change in my face in the 3 weeks since. so thats my story, and I would love to share a discussion with other lovers of Guerlain, especially as we eagerly anticipate the 2015 holiday collection.
Hi, so I bought the Clarisonic Mia 3 K-Beauty set for $199 on the 23rd of November. I haven't even received my package yet and realised that the price has dropped to $140. That's a $59 price difference and I was wondering whether I could get a price adjustment on this? Or does Sephora really need me to return it and repurchase it again? Thanks!
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see without an outside link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Repeats are always welcome, so if you're unsure something was previously posted, post it. People who may have missed it the first time could see the second posting. Don't forget to list the retailer, so everyone knows where to get your deal. Done Sharing! Now, use these deals and haul! My favorite hauls are always from the deals we all share. If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Autumn -Winter-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/2 ...
Ok so I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. I've also been wanting to start a "random thoughts" thread...but I figured I'd separate the categories so that at least the "beauty" one is on the front page, rather than hidden in off topic. So, have a beauty-related thought but don't think it's worth starting a thread about ? Post it here ! today I got a facial at an extraordinarily nice spa. A real treat. And the results were immediate and truly great. But guys: she pulled out a clarisonic and a foamy cleanser for that first initial cleanse, and I nearly had a heart attack. Great for a lot of people but most of you know how I feel about those things !!!!!! Overall, as I said, it was great and my skin is happy. But sheesh. _____________ SWATCH REQUEST THREAD HERE: http://community.sephora.com/t5/The-Swatch-Board/T HE-SWATCH-REQUEST-THREAD/td-p/2223212

Just posted to Trendmood's Instagram. It looks like it starts Dec. 2 for VIB and VIB Rouge. $25 off $50 for Rouge $20 off $50 for VIB $15 off $50 for BI (Starts Dec. 3rd) Ends Dec. 14, one time use. Let's try to keep it positive and stay excited for this sale. Yes, it starts the same day for VIB and VIB Rouge, and yes the dollar off difference is only $5, but Sephora is not obligated to do any of this. If you feel like it's not enough of a Rouge perk, then don't participate in the sale and take your business elsewhere. We all clearly love beauty products, and saving money on them is nice too, but the complaints take away from the fun those products are and the joy they bring us. Speaking if products, I will need to really think about what I'm picking up! I have three or four things spinning in my head...
Two years ago, I wrote an article on my blog called 'Chemicals Hiding in Your Beauty Products'. In the blog post, I mentioned that I would be staying away from the following: Dioxane and Quaternium-15 Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) Parbens At the time, I went through all of my makeup products and threw out anything containing those ingredients - a lot of them had parabens. I know a lot has changed in the past two years and I'm wondering if there are other ingredients I should be avoiding as well. What do you ladies avoid?? Also, what is your favorite website for looking up ingredients if they aren't printed on the product itself?
I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Hi everyone! I'm NC40 and kinda new to highlighters. I bought Becca's champagne pop and love it. Any recommendations for medium skintone? I prefer sublt non glittery (nothing more than becca). Il love the LM matte radiance... but thats too white for me. Its a beautiful highlight on the cheek though. What are your favouriteS?
I noticed that it's November and no November Haul thread is up...so I hope it's okay with everyone that I started one. I don't usually post on this thread but love reading it. Heading into the holidays a lot of our purchases are for others...so not so naughty...
Ok BT, what did you find today? Canada users , please post here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/What-s-Ne w-On-The-Site-Today-Canada/td-p/2164948 Sticky plug to a FABULOUS thread.

Link to the item, and let us know the price, and brief description so that folks can at a glance decide if they want to clickie to <3 Love or $$ Buy. ^-^ Here is the retired thread in case you wanted to reference: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Spring -Summer-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/td-p/ ... Most new items get listed on Tuesday evenings through Wednesday. Your help in spotting anything new is appreciated! It's a tad more difficult with very established and broad brands like Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Bobbi Brown that have deep selections for colors.
I am looking for a higher end concealer that doesn't crease, looks natural and lasts on oily skin. I have tried a lot of drugstore concealers, and I find that they are too harsh for my sensitive skin and crease way too much.
Hello! I've recently taken to contouring my nose (or rather trying to) and I am using a powder contour because of my oily nose. I put it in all the assigned places and blend it (keeping in mind these are all the right colors and it's an actual pallet too) with a large, fluffy brush. I like to keep this natural, also. I find that although right after doing it, it looks amazing, like a nose job. But after doing my eyes and lips, which takes less than twenty minutes it begins to fade and look muddy. Is there any reason why this is happening? If so, what should I do, and please don't recommend products because I have literally no budget. Thanks for the help! EDIT: Sorry if my wording is confusing, I was writing this in a hurry! It looks muddy right after blending no matter what I do, and I want it to actually work, so I was wondering what I can do to blend it nicely and make my nose look smaller. Thank you so much!
Hi all: I do not suffer from acne, but I have (and have always had) an extremely red nose. My skin is oily and not red anywhere else - just my nose. To the point that it is noticeable by others. It is always red (and, sometimes, it starts....throbbing?). Green does not cancel it out, foundations/concealers don't stay on. It's the ONLY reason I wear foundation - because it is such a drastically different color than the rest of my face (olive-toned skin with distinctly yellow undertones). HELP?!?!
We're excited to announce that for the month of November, we are teaming up with The Movember Foundation with the release of a custom Mauve(ember) shade for sale exclusively in Sephora Canada stores and on Sephora.ca.
Inspired by her Father’s winning battle with prostate cancer, BITE founder, Susanne Langmuir, wanted a fun, easy and meaningful way for women to support the men in their lives facing health issues. Our custom blended mauve shade is a way for women to proudly participate, spark conversation, and ultimately raise funds for men’s health during the month of Movember.
100% of BITE's proceeds from each 100% natural Mauvember lipstick will go directly to The Movember Foundation - the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. We hope you all #JointheMauvement!
