Hi lovelies! I got an email ostensibly from Sephora stating that my Hall of Famer package has shipped. Now, I have gotten sample packages from Sephora before, but usually I get a PM stating that this is going to happen. I'm thinking this is phishing. Anybody else get this??? Thanks in advance!!!
A place to say thanks to helpful BTer's, share your new BT status or heart achievement... A place to joke around, share memes, riddles or anything else you want to. Let's bring back some life in this place!!!!
Ladies (and gentlemen!) Since Canada seems to be getting different/fewer brands added to the website, and any cross-border new releases seem to be several days to weeks later than US releases, I thought we could use our own 'what's new/found in the wild' post. Please feel free to share any new products/brands you find on the Canadian site here.
Whatever you call yourself... a makeup addict, skin care junkie, a sample hoarder - I am sure you have something to confess. Is it an out of control makeup stash, bins overflowing with samples or shelves filled with skincare? We want to hear it! Share with the community and let us know how you stay organized (pics welcome) If you have tips for organizing out of control stashes we want to hear from you! ps: I love organizing so love to hear what others have to say! pss: I did do a search and couldn't find anything recent close to this topic. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Recently I've been having an issue where my eyes will suddenly start burning and watering ferociously. (Seriously. I look like I'm bawling.) Over the last couple of weeks I think I've made the connection between the burning/watering and using facial sunscreen. It started at my daughter's track meet after I applied my gold standard Neutrogena sunscreen. I initially assumed I had applied it too close to my eyes because I used this product often over previous summers. But then it happened again a few days later when I used Coola's Setting Spray. Then again when I tried Murad Invisiblur. If I go without sunscreen it doesn't happen. But, what doesn't make sense is that the irritation doesn't just happen shortly after application either. I can be at Target 8 hours later and the burning and watering will start as I'm walking through the parking lot. (Thank heaven it was in the parking lot. Anyone who saw me probably just thought I spent too much lol!) Thoughts? Suggestion? I'm very fair and can't go without sunscreen over the summer!
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies! It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it. So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations. This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM. A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were. Hope this is useful. *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)* 01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me. Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer) I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive. General comments - Okay skin. Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts . My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.
So, I was thinking we should start a list of known store events. This will be a list not just for Rouge events, but for any in store brand events, free gift promos, point promos, discount days, etc. Some events are nation wide and in Canada, some are only in certain markets. The main way I check for events is by using the store finder link and entering different zipcodes around me and by asking about any intel whenever I'm in store. Let's pool our intel! Please post anything you know or heard about below and I'll add it to the list. UPCOMING EVENTS NATIONWIDE - US Dec 6-7 @ SiJCP - Urban Decay Event, free FULL SIZE (1.18oz) Naked Skin Illuminating Beauty Balm with any UD purchase! Local Events Los Angeles, CA San Fransico, CA Santa Monica, CA Events in Canada Eaton Centre Yorkdale Rideau Centre, Ottawa
I thought since a few BTer's like mermaids, unicorns, cute stuff, iridescent/holographic items... I'd start a thread so we could post all the products (beauty or not) that could fit this category.... even more enabling! hahahaha Share products you find that you think others might like....
BTers, I received an awesome package today. I will post more reviews and swatches once I have a chance to play with these products. I'm so excited and can't wait to share more with everyone. A big shout out to BT fairies @KatieBT and @ShiraBT. Thank you thank you! Edit: product list: Becca Light Chaser Rose Quartz flashes Seashells, Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, Milk Blur Spray, Velour Invisible Magic Touch Lashes and Lash Adhesive.
This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only. Share ulta promos here. 4/15/17: Please do NOT post requests for the spreadsheet in this thread. Please post requests for the Ulta GWP google spread sheet in this thread: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Ulta-GWP-Google-Spreadsheet-Request-Thread/m-p/2753063#M11... Let's keep this thread on topic! ********************************************************* Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and add product id numbers and sku numbers so people can search for items on ulta. *****Just to clarify, there is an item number that Ulta lists on the website, right under the picture of the item. The product id is the number given to the item in the URL. So Ulta's site follows this formula of having the url and then the very last part of the url is "productId=xlsImpprod" followed by an 8 digit number. If you use that "productId" number you can get to the page of any item on ulta. It's not a search, but a direct link to the page.*****
I loved reading about your favorite makeup products so figured this week we could dive into skincare! I am creating three threads for the main skin types: Dry, oily and combination. This thread is dedicated to dry skin favorites!
Reminder, please only share one of your favorites per category and try to share your favorites offered from Sephora. Please write "skip" if you don't have a favorite for one of the categories I listed. Let the fun begin!
What's your holy grail...
1. Makeup remover/balm:
6. Daytime moisturizer:
8. Facial spray:
9. Nighttime serum:
10. Nighttime moisturizer:
13: Eye Cream:
Can't wait to see your favorite skincare products!

Any other product recs for my dry, flaky skin? I have a skin condition and some psoriasis-like patches/texture on my cheeks, however generally my skin isn't sensitive and I can keep this at bay with a good AHA. AM: -Cleanser (PC Skin Recovery) -Toner (Fresh Rose Deep Hydration or PC Skin Recovery or P50 - any suggestions for AM?) -Vitamin C? (Drunk Elephant C-Firma) -AHA? Do I use any in the AM? In conjunction with C-Firma? I have PC 8% AHA gel, 10% AHA liquid and Sunday Riley Good Genes. I d o need to use AHAs daily to prevent dead skin buildup, but not sure if I should use 2x/day - my skin isn't sensitive. -Also - May Coop Raw Sauce - AM or PM? -Drunk Elephant B-Hydra under moisturizer? -Moisturizer with SPF - any recs? Is it ok to skip this if I have SPF in my foundation and set with Coola setting spray with SPF? PM: -Cleanser (PC Skin Recovery for now - any other suggestions for dry flaky skin? I was going to try YTTP's Kale/Spinach etc cleanser however there is a retinol derivative in it and I'm pregnant - can't use) -Toner (Fresh Rose Deep Hydration or PC Skin Recovery OR P50 - any suggestions for PM?) -AHA next? PC 8% AHA gel, 10% AHA liquid and Sunday Riley Good Genes - OR Drunk Elephant Babyfacial mask for exfoliation instead? When to add in May Coop Raw Sauce? DE B-Hydra? Ceramidin Liquid? PC 10% Niacinamide Booster? Drunk Elephant Babyfacial mask? Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist? I also have Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid & Cream, a few choices for moisturizers: Belif Moisturizing Bomb, Drunk Elephant Lala Retro, FAB Ultra Repair, etc. - anything along these lines I should/could try? Though these all seem to be working great (FAB Ultra Repair isn't QUITE moisturizing enough though)... Oils: Sunday Riley Flora, Sunday Riley Juno, Fresh Seaberry - I rotate these. Was using Caudalie c15 Polyphenol Overnight Detox but had to return as it's not pregnancy safe. Also was using Sunday Riley Luna - also had to return due to pregnancy. I realize there are a lot of products that can substitute for one another but I like to have a few to choose from
Over the last two days my upper lip and the area above it has been dry, flaky/peeling and red. Could it be a chemical reaction from some product? I don't believe I tried anything new on my lips that I had not tried before. When I touch that area it feels a little rough to the touch. It did burn a little when I was using facewash to wash the area and when I put cream on it like Belief's Aqua Bomb. I am kind of smearing the area with Bite agave lip balm but it just feels so weird and rough-ish.
A place to discuss new, indie and not so talked about brands. There's a few brands I'd like to know more about but didn't want to start a thread for each so decided to start a thread for all those brands that we don't often hear about.
I'd like a recommendation for a foundation. I have combination dry skin, and my dry patches seem to show with heavier foundations like Urban Decay All Nighter. I also have a mild case of acne, and would like a medium-to-full coverage, and preferably one that won't make my acne much worse. I go to school, so would prefer a long-wearing one that won't move when used with primer and setting spray. I'd also prefer one with a more natural finish. As much as I like matte makeup, I think most will settle into the dry patches in my face. The foundations I have tried have been Urban Decay All Nighter, Urban Decay Naked, and Fit Me in Matte.I found that all of these, with Naked being the least severe and All Nighter the most, seem to emphasize my dry patches, and I find the All Nighter, as pretty and full-coverage as it looks when it's first put on, seems to bunch in places like my nose by the end of the day. Thank you for helping me!
I think Sephora collection is one of those underrated brands that has so many great products. I didn't find any thread dedicated to the brand so I thought to state one. Come discuss you favourite Sephora collection and post if you hear about something new coming soon. Ask question and give/get suggestions. Adding some of my staples from Sephora Collection.
I have sensitive, combination skin with a lot of hyperpigmentation from acne scars (no texture) and have been breaking out really badly on the lower half of my face for a few weeks. I ran out of the skincare products I was using and bought new EVERYTHING (cleanser, toner, moisturizer,serums, foundation,primer, etc). I've been using Glamglow facewash (white bottle, mud to foam), Ole truth serum, Strivectin eye cream (even though I'm 20, I want to prevent wrinkles. Lol), and a combo of Yes-to-cucumbers and Yes-to-cotton moisturizers after using witch hazel as my toner before the serum. Some nights I use the Sephora overnight mask or Estee Edit night moisturzer, and I use the Ole pore sauna scrub weekly along with different charcoal/acne masks. I use Too Faced born this way foundation over MUF Step One, and sometimes Dr. Brandt pores no more but I thought it irritated my skin. I don't know where to start fixing my skin. Help!!
I'd really like to see Paul & Joe, Anna Sui, and Les Merveilleuses de Laduree at Sephora. I know that Sephora Champs Elysees has Les Merveilleuses as well as the Sephora across the street from Galleries Lafayette in Paris.
I would love to have the option of getting samples of perfumes I am interested in thru sephora.com. Many of the perfumes I would like to sniff are not sold in my local stores and are not the typical rewards or weekly special offerings. I wish that for any perfume available on sephora.com - you could get a sample ..... even for a sample price or point purchase. I do like that some lines have discovery sets, but that is often way too much for me to see if I like or don't like a perfume (which is often "don't"). I am unwilling to spend $100+ on perfume if I can't smell it first, and I am not one to buy and return willy-nilly as that just seems irresponsible. Would love if you would consider adding this service for customers!
Was asked to post an updated thread. Let's continue the fun shall we? What are you wearing today? 1. nars sheer glow foundation, mont blanc 2. perricone md no bronzer bronzer 3. urban decay eyeshadow primer potion, original 4. too faced chocolate bar palette 5. benefit theyre real mascara 6. rimmel london stay matte powder, natural 7. benefit dallas 8. nars blush, sin 9. buxom full on lipstick, las vegas
