I tried the trick where you keep adding items into your cart until the VIB rogue banner pops up at the top of your cart, and I had to add almost 500$ worth of items! That means I've only spent $500 this year, and I've definitely spent more than that (qualified for VIB, then spent at least another $250 during the sale)! I know my online purchases don't show everything that I've actually bought (ie stuff that's in store only, so is there a way to find out how much more I need?
Hi, everyone! I know that with Christmas coming up, we BeautyTalkers look for beauty bargains on discount sites. Here's how to check if you bought expired makeup: 1) Google checkcosmetic and click on the first site. 2) On the left where it says Cosmetic Calculator, choose the item's brand . 3) Find the batch number on your makeup. Most of the time it's stamped on the outer packaging/box, and it's a mix of numbers and letters, like A27. 4) The production month and year should come up. Ewww, January 2007... This should help when you're buying makeup from sites like eBay and Amazon, so you don't waste money on discounted, expired makeup. Even if it seems new, I feel like using an expired product from an unknown person is still... questionable. Of course, check if any seals are broken, packaging design is wrong, etc. etc. Just a tip I'd thought to share. Happy shopping! <3
So I'm searching for a CC Cream that works for my skin tone. I have medium skin color with yellow-ish undertones. I have combination skin with some redness and uneveness. Recommendations please! I do not want anything too pink. Thanks! XO
Hey everyone, I just have a question about a natural/organic brand for men I wanted to give a gift to a friend whose just starting his skincare, but couldn't decide which brand is tried and true. I recently started liking juice beauty, but they don't make skincare for men
So I still haven't spent the $50 to get $20 off. Ive bought smaller items but for some reason I haven't been able to find the right item for this deal. I think it's comical because I don't seem to have a problem with spending money at sephora… I just want to feel like Im getting a deal on a really good item. (I don't want to waste it). Anyone else out there still have their $20 off $50?
Has anybody else used It's A 10 products? I don't think they sell them at sephora, but with it being beauty related I figured it would fit in here. I've been using the leave-in conditioner plus keratin, but I haven't really noticed any difference with the texture of my hair, but I can honestly say that I haven't had my hair cut in over two months and I haven't noticed any split ends! I am trying to grow my hair out and make it as healthy as possible so I wanted to use Aussies 3 minute miracle since I had used it when I was younger. Any recommendations on products or how to grow hair out? If I don't wash my hair everyday it will be greasy and my texture is wavy.
So recently I've been using my Clarisonic with a normal brush head and my Philosophy Purity Made Simple facewash. My morning and night routine usually involves: -Wiping the makeup off of my face with a simple cleansing wipe. -Wetting my face and using my Clarisonic with the Philosophy facewash as directed. -Taking out the middle of the brush head and using more of the facewash to do deep clean around my nose, lip, and eyebrow area. -Using my Clean and Clear toner. -Applying a thick layer of my St. Ives Timeless Skin moisturizer. Though I do love my routine, I want to add some new products into it. I'm planning on sticking with the facewash and moisturizer that I have, but does anybody have any recommendations for a face mask, exfoliator, toner, or anything else? Please let me know! Also, has anybody else tried a different brush head on their Clarisonic? I have the Mia with a normal brush head, but I wanted to try both the acne brush head and the deep pore cleaning brush head.
Does anyone else's husband/boyfriend/significant other know how obessed we are with beauty products? I asked my husband a question that we asked during a meeting at work. "If you had 10,000 dollars that you had to spend on items, what would you buy?" Hubby replied how I thought: clothes, shoes, books...but he surprised me with some extra. He said he would take me to Sephora, pull out my VIB Rouge card (He knows the terminology!!?), and throw cash up in the air to "Make it rain!!! (At this point, my husband has dramatically stood up threw imaginary cash up and raised his hands dancing.) I laughed so hard, but I thought that was so sweet! I love how much I related to all the beautiful men and women on here, but who knew my hubby understood me as well? If we every hit the lotto and go to sephora, whoever is in there is getting a lipgloss on me! Hope this made you smile.
Hi all, so I've been using makeup a long time, and I've always bought the less expensive items, NYX is probably the most luxurious makeup item I own but I want to change that and begin buying some higher end items to add to my already large collection. With that said what are the top five items I should look into picking up first? Thanks!
So today I called the VIB rouge line, regarding my naked 3 palette since it is taking longer than usual. So than I proceed to explain to her, than when I ordered the palette I only got 10 points less than what I paid for. Canadian price is different price. She proceeds to tell me that, we (canadians) get our online points based on the american price not the Canadian. I've been told that before, we get our 1:1 points, not based on American. Since apparently now, we canadians who make online orders, will only get american points. Which seems unfair. She did adjust the difference and said it was a one time deal. Has anyone been told that? Makes me not want to make big purchases online...
So I usually have extremely oily skin but due to the recent weather change (or at least I think so) my face has become very dry. This is the first time I have experienced dry skin and I need some help finding a moisturizer, or frankly anything that can get rid of this problem! Please help
This is so odd. I went to track the package that is due to be delivered today and noticed that the Naked3 palette is showing on my order page as permanently out of stock. I don't believe it for a second...there's no way UD made such a limited run after the success of Naked and Naked2.
When he hates the smell of nail polish and surprises you with a $21 limited edition Burberry shade! Enchanted is one of my top favorite movies! Now the pressure is on me to get him something equally thoughtful for Christmas. Credit: belletristicbeauty.com

Many more highlighters for you! Including the Guerlain Cruel Gardenia.

We love you Poshified and I hope you have a GREAT heart party!!!
I have a couple of work holiday parties to go to and would love to try something new and dressed up while remaining professional. Does anyone have any ideas? I've done the pale eye with heavy winged liner and red lip a couple of times and want to switch it up (although I do love a red lip for the holidays!)
I am confused. I have 514 points on my account, but it still says that I need to spend $70 to get to be a VIB. I had 425 points and it said I had $70 to spend and then on Saturday I bought a $90 bottle of perfume, though my points went up to over 500, the amount that I need to spend to become a VIB still says $70. I have spent a lot at Sephora and I think that having to spend the extra $70 is wrong. Is anybody else having this problem/how can I fix it? I have called Sephora and been hung up on before I could get my question in. Please help.
This sounds crazy, but I clicked on something today (an email or my account--I've been doing both--and at one point I saw, among other offers for beauty insiders, and I want to say around but not in the Merrycrazy *today's* pick" I saw, for Holiday purchasing, a Bite double lipstick set, other sets, and a collection of mascaras--about 11?--that invited the purchaser to split up and give to various and sundry. Now, for the life of me, I can't find that offer, or the set (of mascaras) anywhere. And I've looked, clicked, and searched for a while. WTF? I'm fairly intelligent, and Sephora, if offering this product, should want me to find it. But I can't. Has anyone had better luck? Can Customer service or a Mod guide me down the trail of breadcrumbs to this set? Or should I just give up since I've bought too much anyway?
Hello all! I was just wondering what everyone's favorite part of their morning beauty routine is just for fun!! Whether it's playing around with all your different eyeshadow colors, putting on your blush for some rosy cheeks, swiping on your favorite lipstick, making your hair look flawless, or even that last spray of perfume. Personally, I just love picking out what lipstick/lipgloss combo I'm going to finish off my look with. I am a lipstick girl all the way!! What's your favorite??
Which Benefit Box-O-Powders do you have & (If you have more than one) 1.Which is your favorite? 2.Which one do you use during Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter? 3.Which is your least favorite? 4. Would you buy more?
