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?

So winter is starting to come and my skin is already starting to dry up a bit. I use foundation now, think I could get a decent coverage with a tinted moisturizer? I use Urban Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup Foundation right now. I'm almost out so I'll be getting a new product regardless. I have redness in my skin so I feel foundation wouldn't do me a lot of favours when the temperature drops. I do have a skincare routine and do notice my skin drying up as the seasons start to change. Would looking into a tinted moisturizer be wise? I'm not expected perfect results. I just rather have a bit more redness than have my face look flaky.
I haven't tried any and since I work weekdays I hate washing my hair everyday. Like I mentioned, I have black hair that's medium in thickness, and get's oily after a day and a half after washing. Are there any brands someone can suggest from experience that won't leave residue?
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?
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?
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
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
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 everyone, I was looking for good eyeliner and I came across the Marc Jacob mini eyeliner set http://www.sephora.com/the-sky-liner-seven-piece-p etite-highliner-collection-P388946?skuId=1630433 I was wondering if it is any good? would you guys recommend it and if not which one will you recommend? I am looking for eyeliners that come in ever shade and color, Thank you Rajdeep
Okay, so I've always had some trouble finding foundation to match my skin. I have red hair but my skin is neutral-cool but borders more on neutral. Previously, I've worn NARS mont blanc but I want something with heavier coverage because I switched birth controls and my face has absolutely erupted with acne. I was thinking maybe light 44 would do the trick but I'm not so sure. I'm not the palest of the pale. Im on the spectrum of "light" going towards "fair" so i don't know
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.
Thoughts please? I never use powders because I have dry skin. I use Laura M tinted foundation and no blush. But I have read great things about the Hourglass powders. Do these dry the skin? I am looking to get something "luminizing or brightening" with the VIB discount. thanks! Mandy
I need a new foundation that has some really good coverage. I'm 16, so my hormones are making my acne go crazy! I have dry to oily combination skin, so if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
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
looking for a night face cream that is right for me. I am over 50 and have oily skin so I don't want my face to feel greasy. I want to minimize fine crow lines around my eyes and bags under my eyes and not look dull. I want my skin to feel hydrated, smooth and soft but not oily or greasy. What would you recommend?
Hello Beauty insiders, I was hoping someone could help me with finding a shade in the D&G Luminous Foundation. I might not be able to get to a sephora store before the sale, and need to set an order. I am a terre nueve shade in the NARS Tinted moisturizer and Linen shade in clinique even better makeup. I have never used anything else, and I feel the best shade for me would be in between these two. When I put these options into the Skin IQ, it didn't list this foundation as one of the best matches. Can someone recommend a shade if they had experience with the D&G option or a foundation that is similar and can give you even glowy finish, but not heavy coverage? Someone recommended Chanel Aqua or Dior Glowing makeup. Recommendations and shade help is appreciated. Thank You!
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
Hi, I bought an Urban Decay eyeliner which glides on really beautifully at first. But throughout the course of the day, it tends to smudge and get really ugly. I love eyeliner but I had to stop wearing it because of this. I feel like even waterproof eyeliners smudge. Can anyone recommend a really good eyeliner that will last all day and look beautiful without smudging? Thanks <3
