Alright, I just discovered LUSH! I haven't taken a bath in forever, but I bought a bath bomb from LUSH. Now I think I will be taking a bath every night! UGH! So Wonderful!!! Who else love LUSH?!?! What are your favs?
Hi ladies, I honestly canʻt decide what to get from the sale! A lot of cheaper items or some high end stuff? I love lip products (except lipgloss), skincare (except eye stuff), value sets, brushes, and palettes. I still donʻt have the clarisonic so Iʻm wondering if I should get it and which one? I have combo skin and it isnʻt very sensitive. Could you guys please suggest some products for me to get for the sale? Sorry I have so much questions! Iʻve been pretty busy with school so I havenʻt had time to focus on my shopping obsession. xo, Kelly
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha. I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit. I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks! I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift! PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

I have a lot of baby hairs that stick in every which direction. I hated it so a couple months ago I plucked some of them out. Well I think I got a little pluck happy because I plucked a lot out and my hairline looked really stupid. Now all of them are growing back in and it's getting really stubbly and it looks awful. I want to try to grow it all back in but it's so embarrassing with all this stubble. Any tips on what to do? I feel so awful about myself and so self conscious I know it was a stupid decision
Hey, so I went to the store opening event for rouges at the Robson street location in Vancouver. It was really impressive, so I thought I would share! Here is what it looked like from outside. There was a little red carpet, photo area, and SA taking names on an iPad. Once I was inside, a SA gave me some sparkling wine and a little pamphlet detailing the event. There were little punch boxes on the bottom that you got punched when you visited different stages. If you got them filled out, you got the gift bag at the end. They were lenient about this though. As you can see, there were some brand reps there, including Ole Henriksen. He was so cute and friendly! We also got a little red bracelet with a metal "Sephora" charm to designate we were rouges. Here is the sparkling wine/ appy station. It was unlimited. They had mini pumpkin pies, cheesecakes, stuffed scallops, and mini pulled pork things. It was quite good. The new location was gorgeous! I was really impressed. It will be my go to Sephora. It had the largest variety of products I have ever seen in a Sephora. It also had a photo booth that printed out your picture and uploaded to their site. Here is the great Tom Ford display. The had a few other displays like this for high-end perfumes. They also had an Atelier station where they monogramed the leather cases (I think?). I didn't check it out too much. I was also VERY excited to see the Giorgio Armani display. Apparently it is the only one on the WC in Canada. Anyway, here is a preview of what to expect. I was also really excited to see that the store has a second level that is exclusive to Rouges. Apparently it is for the free consultations. I think this is a great idea. It makes the consultations seem like an actual perk. Hopefully they will have actual MUA employed to work in that area. Towards the end of the night, the DJ got louder and all the SA started to clap, sing, and dance. It was cute. The rep for Fresh was going nuts. Finally, here are the freebies I got. I think they are pretty generous! I got Atelier cologne samples, a Sephora eyeshadow palette, a full sized (?) Fresh face mask, a full sized (?) Ole Henriksen gel eye lift, a Sephora brush, a Benefit coloured brow gel, a new mini Ole Henriksen cleanser, a Sephora Robson Street tote, and a Sephora umbrella. The rep for Ole demoed the new cleanser, and it was really nice. It is gel consistency but when you rub it for a long time it turns into an oil and changes colour. I'm pretty excited to try it out. Anyway, great job Sephora! I can't wait to shop in the new store. Thanks for creating a great event for Rouges. Did anyone else go to this event?
Hey ladies, so I know that these palettes are pretty old now, but I was wondering if anyone knows where to get either or both of these palettes for a reasonable price. I know a lot of people wanna sell them for over $ 100 and I ain't paying that much for eyeshadows. Hope to hear some places !
I have some questions, trying to color my own hair and save money. I bought the color i know my stylist uses, Matrix 6warm and i bought the 30 vol developer. But i didn't take into consideration i had highlights done since then, my hair is naturally a dark brown. It has some new growth and my highlights are a light brown yellowish with hints of orange. Im trying to get my hair like either picture, i like them both. I also bought a Matrix 7ash color, i was going to mix the two but not sure if it will give me the color I want. I was also wanting to know if i should use vol30, would that dry my hair out?
The Armani Eye & Brow Maestro Creams are supposed to be total game changers, which can be used as eyeshadows, brow color, and even hair color (hair color - seriously?). There are 9 shades (described as iridescent), they are (apparently) waterproof and they (apparently) last 20 hours. I have to say I'm intrigued. What do you all think?
My daughter starting to like make-up and I'm not the type of wearing make up and can't teach her much. I just don't want her to put too much or wrong make up for her face also it could be a nice gift for her birthday. Is it ok to make an appointment with a beauty advisor at Sephora, she is 12. Is is too young, too soon to make an appointment with a beauty advisor for her at sephora? What about the classes? Thanks
Hi there. 27 years old and my skin isn't what it used to be. I have a fairly good regime with cleansing and moisturizing but I am looking t change it up with some anti-aging products in hopes of preventing. I've been to drugstores and the advice I've gotten has been varied. My skin is oily/combination and I definitely don't want anything thick as I'll break out. Any suggestions for an eye cream and moisturizer?
Alright ladies and gentlemen of BT! The survey is up and running! Allure's list has got nothing on the collective expertise of this group See Gingaa's original post below to see the thoughts behind this survey. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Insider/All ure-s-Best-of-Beauty-I-disagree-We-need-a-Best-of- ... We've created a pretty exhaustive list of 150 categories for all of you lovely people to nominate your favorite products!

The more responses I get, the better I'm not sure when I will close the voting (maybe early December?) but the results will be summarized and shared in a follow up post!
I was thinking about this while I was applying a Chanel product this morning and thinking about how often it seems people dislike scented products, when the scent isn't the product's purpose (perfume/cologne, lip balms, namely). But the blush I was about to put on just smelled so lovely to me this morning. I feel like the fragrance/scent/smell/odor of products tend to get a bad rap. Anytime anyone mentions how something smells, it seems to be in relation to why they don't like it, or why they brought it back (foundations, hair products, lip products, etc...). What products have scents that you either love, come to adore, or remind you of something/someone?
With all the sales going on and holiday sets and limited edition products, and new items, I've been doing alot of purchases lately. Think I've gone a little overboard. Hey you gotta get them when they are in stock otherwise they go out of stock... for ever! Any how I find myself hidding my purchases and receipts. Not because I don't have enough money for my purchases, I budget well, but because I have too much already. Tell me do you do the same? Where do you hide your newly bought treasures?
Hello - looking for some good options for aging prevention for eyelids. I am in my 40s - have loosening of skin on eyelids and it looks awful when wearing eyeshadow. Need a cream/serum for the eyelids to help reduce wrinkly look -firm eyelids, and also, if possible, something that also addresses the oily lids. A few options would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, Gia
Hi, my mom is 52 years old, and she is an Asian, dry skin type, her skin is still firm, but with winkles. She has been used Estee Lauder for several years, but she wants to change another one. I am thinking Algenist, but should I buy her firming & lifting, anti-aging, or reconstructing? Which collection is for women who over 50, and has lines and wrinkle problem? thanks ! !!
What are some good makeup to have for beginners for work; I am in the professional phase of college and it is a business dress code. We can dress down from business but it is not enough to be called business casual. I bought a liquid foundation which I rarely use and I also have a bare minerals powder which I use more often. I have one blush from tarte called captivating, stila eyeliner and a smashbox full exposure palette. I am looking for a few makeup must haves for fall/winter or just in general to upgrade my make up a bit.
Whether you're an employee at Sephora or loved by an employee at Sephora, if you scored a code... what did you buy for the sale? If you haven't shopped yet, what are you planning to buy? My goodies came in today and I bought: GHD Bird of Paradise (coral) Too Faced Bronzing Wardrobe Hourglass BB Drybar Lemon Drop Drybar High Tops Tarte Cheek Set Too Faced Melted Kisses Set Guerlain Magic Ballz Hourglass Lighting Powder YSL Fusion Ink Foundation Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
Hi beauties! I am wondering to buy a set of skin care products for my mother who is 52 yrs, dry skin type Asian. She has deep lines problem, especially on her eye areas... I used to buy estee lauder for her, but she thinks there hasn't showed any difference for 3 years... Any suggestion for my mom? Thanks
I am having continuous trouble with my under eye area, Foundation and concealer set in my fine lines under eyes and make them very prominent.Can you all tell me: 1: You use foundation primer or eye shadow primer under your eyes. 2: what product/powder you use to set your concealer
I'm a 5Y05 and im searching for a concealer that has full coverage and is easy to use. I tried Clinque , Kat Von D and MAC, but I need more coverage than that. I still have alot of acne scars and most of these concealers dont hide that red spots.
I am using the Tarte Amazonian clay foundation and I don't have any problems with it, I just want to try something new. Any recommendations?? I have combo oily skin and acne prone skin with some dry patches. I don't want a completely matte foundation or a luminous finish, so a satin/natural finish would be great. Thanks!!
Beauties, I know we're a community of self acceptance and loving yourself just the way you are, but I'm curious, is there anything about your appearance you wish could be different? To start us off, I'll tell you mine. Though I am completely comfortable/happy with myself, when I was younger my closest girlfriend was ginger, and I lusted after having pale skin, freckles and auburn hair just like her. I did rock various red hair colors for many years, but never found one that suited me and have given up on that for now. These days, I mostly just wish I could be taller. I'm pushing 5'4 and my husband is 6'4 and I would love to be a bit closer to his size. On my off time I wear giant heels to compensate. And if we're wishing for things, I'd love to have b**bs the size I had when I was 40lbs heavier, lol. What about you?

I've been trying to get the perfect winged eyeliner but I can rarely get a perfect line and when I do it's never the same as the other eye. Is there some sort of tool that can help me with the line? I know shadow shields help along with eyeshadow but I have no idea where to buy those. I also heard that Sephora had some sort of eyeliner applicator thing. I don't know, all I'm really seeking is some sort of tool not really a technique. Any ideas?
