Hi, So I recently got a bunch of natural hair brushes to replace most in my Sigma set that weren't picking up my powder makeup that well. That being said, what's the best way to clean them? I've read people like using Dr. Bronners, but are the scented ones okay? I've also heard of people using baby shampoo. Also, what do people do in between washes to spot clean them? For my Sigma set, since they are all synthetic, I just used an rubbing alcohol/dish soap mix I made and spritz it on a tissue and wipe the brushes every time I use them to spot clean. I've also heard you need to condition natural hair brushes. How often would I need to do that and with what? Thanks in advance for the help!
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?
A place for the Canadian peeps to post deal, events, news and anything beauty related!

Ok, forgive me, I know it is only June! Is anyone else already thinking of wonderful things to come? I have visions of Limited editions, special sets and palettes dancing in my head! I can't wait to see what gift sets, gifts with purchase, and Sephora Favorites are coming our way! Black Friday deals and specials that we can't wait to get our hands on!! Lets share some of our favorites from the past and wishes for the future, and them post pics as we get closer and start finding out what we have to get for the holidays!
I was wondering how well the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer works with the beauty blender (original and mini). Does it blend/look better than just using your finger? Does using the beauty blender affect how it will look/last throughout the day? Thanks!
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
I started looking into the brand and wanted people's thoughts about the products. I've heard a lot about their cc cream with spf 50. They don't have many colors but it's suppose to blend to your perfect skin tone. I like that the make up line also focuses on anti-aging also. The vitality lip flush 4 in 1 looks interesting too.
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.
Thank you so much for sharing our excitement about PLAY! by SEPHORA. Below we’ve answered some of the questions we’ve been hearing from you. To give you an overall sense of the timing of our rollout, a limited amount of PLAY! by SEPHORA subscriptions will be available in select markets beginning September 2015, with a full national launch in 2016 – we can’t wait!
Q: When will invites be sent out? A: The first wave of invitations for sign up will be sent during the week of August 17th. They will continue to be sent out in waves throughout the duration of the limited market release.
Q: Where is this being offered? A: The limited release markets for the initial months are Boston and Cincinnati / Columbus. We may be adding additional limited markets later in 2015, before the full national launch in 2016.
Q: Why Limited markets? A: As with many of our programs, we roll them out over time in order to best ensure that everything happens as we planned and that our clients have an excellent experience. Our goal is to prepare for a national launch in 2016.
Q: If I live in one of the limited release markets, will I automatically get an invitation? What about if I signed up on the waitlist? A: Because the quantity of boxes available during the initial release are limited, not all clients in the test markets will receive an invitation. However, as we grow the quantity of boxes available each month, more clients will have an opportunity to sign up.
Q: If I do get an invite, am I guaranteed a box? A: As quantities are limited, if you are invited to subscribe to the PLAY! program, please redeem your invitation and claim your spot as soon as possible, so that you don’t miss out.
Q: Will Canadians have an opportunity to subscribe? A: The box will not be available in Canada during the limited release, however we are planning to expand to Canada at some point after the national US launch.

I wrote a review yesterday and it seems like Sephora rejected it. It was my first first 1 star review and I spent a good amount of time on it. It wasn't a rude bashing review but an actually detailed and thorough review of the product. All the reviews I've written were posted within a few hours of submitting it, even 2 star reviews. Thanks for wasting my time Sephora. Pro Tip: Always copy and paste your review in your notes before submitting your review. In the case where they reject a legit review, resubmit again. EDIT: Thank you Candace for helping me resolve this issue!
DISCLAIMER: SEPHORA DOES NOT HAVE HAVE A "LIVE CHAT" FEATURE. It just dawned on me to wonder why Sephora doesn't have Live Chat for Customer Service and product/shade recommendations? Bobbi Brown does. MAC does. Why behind the times Sephora?
I know we are all receiving emails about the Epic rewards credit so I thought I would start a thread where we could post what we are going to spend/splurge on. I haven't decided yet, but I'd love some inspiration from the BT community!

trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my actual impression of it (at least at first ) it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too. so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product. right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off. i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer. how about you ? __________ post trial edit about the products above: i had to skip on the REN because the shea butter in it was too heavy for my skin. and i suppose buying something simply for the smell isn't the best use of my moola the VICHY aqualia thermal serum, however, is in my permanent arsenal. i've already repurchased once since starting this thread, and have turned a few people on to it too !
I have been wanting a contour kit for months, but I want one that I can use all or most colors in the palette. I am very pale in the winter but tan in the summer. The two I have been looking at are the Kat Von D and Anastasia Beverly Hills. What are your thoughts, pros or con, suggestions?
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. 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 ...
Now that Sephora has sent out the email offering those who were affected by the Epic Rewards a $50 promo code, what are you going to use it to buy? I am really hoping that the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette really is released on September 15 because I think I may try to hold off and use my code towards that! If I can't hold off there are a few things in my basket that I may finally pull the trigger on. I have the UD Afterglow Blush in Score and the Burberry Kit in there! I can't wait to see what you all have your eyes on. Here's a copy of the email in case you haven't seen it yet!
Sure, we make Christmas Lists for our loved ones, but what about for ourselves? I made one this year of all the holiday sets I would like, along with a few other wants from Sephora. The big problem is that it amounts to nearly $800 (sheesh, that's like a huge vacation) Naturally, I don't need that much and my friend challenged me to pick out 3 holiday sets. *biting my nails*If you can only pick three holiday sets which ones would you pick? If you have a list of the things you want, please post it!
I think we can all use something positive today. So here it is: For those of you who (like me) fell wildly, madly in love with the Charles Mallory compacts that I posted about, the prices have dropped quite a bit! I talked about them in this thread and posted pictures: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Face/Mixing-Loose- Powders/m-p/1853292/highlight/true#M28789 ...but they were way too expensive for me to consider. Well, now I'm wondering if someone in the company was looking online for comments about the product, and saw our discussion. I want the peacock one so badly! It is STILL quite expensive, especially with the exchange rate, but the price drop has me seriously considering ordering it for my birthday.
Are there a lot of us? I had 1,200 points roughly and I haven't gotten a response. Pretty sure I emailed within the first few hours of the announcement. Granted, I'm not a rouge member (yet!). I wonder if that makes a difference. Shall we wallow and wait together? *Offers to holds hands* Edit: Here is a screenship from the Sephora Canada website page: ITS GOING TO BE OK PEOPLE <3 Hopefully.
