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 ...

Heading into the new holiday sets of 2015 I wanted to get insight of the best of 2014 (sometimes brands are consistent; sometimes they disappoint...but still).  Last year I loved the LM eye sticks, the UD Vice Ltd (the neon green one), the Tarte set and the Sephora collection mini cleanser set.  I also liked the UD and KVD mini lipstick sets.  And then there was the Chanel Camellia de Plumes highlighter.  Anyone else?

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available.    For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!

  I've been hijacking threads lately with my various color challenges. It's time for it's own place!    The rules:  Each week (Sunday- Saturday) there will be a new color to incorporate into your makeup looks. It can be one item of that color or a whole face. Try to incorporate it 4-5 times during the week, and post your pic, or discuss your colors here with everyone! If you can only do a day or two, that's fine too! This should be fun!    For folks on a No Buy, it's a great way to Shop your collection. I hope you'll join me!    Week 7 Aug 30- sept 5: PLUM

I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.

Hey guys, have any of you beauties use the app MUABS for selling your gently used or unloved makeup? Is it a safe app to sell my makeup?

I recently made an appointment to get my make up done and I was just wondering if the people that do your make up are certified? And i mean really certified like they are at Mac, i know it is tough to get a job there. I see a lot of mixed answers and just want to be sure. I love the variety at Sephora but do not know much about the ppl that actually work there. I am getting my make up done for my 21st birthday and don't want to be disappointed. THANK YOU!

Hi all,   I am looking into a new foundation.  I am currently using the Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Foundation.  I like to change my foundation up every year. I just like to try different ones.   I am going into my closest Sephora store this weekend (which is like 2-3 hours away) and wanted some input on which samples to get before getting the original size.   So far I have on my list is:   Too Faced Born This Way MUFE Ultra HD Foundation UD Weightless Ultra Foundation   I have combination skin. I have heard many good things about these foundations I listed and thought I'd try samples.  I am looking for something that doesn't make me oily by noon-time and that lasts at least 8 hours for my regular work hours which I am sure many of you can understand!   Any other suggestions? I don't want to overload on foundation, but if there is another 1-2 other recommendations you all might have would be good.    Or even inputs on the list I wrote out and if those are okay to chose from and what you guys thought about it yourselves when using it!
Beauty Insider
Dear Sephora. I would like to thank you for for the following:   -Thank you for offering $50 credits to all of us who qualified. Even though some got sent much later than others (I got mine today by calling).  - Thanks for restocking the Canadian samples section lol after having only 4-6 the last little while -Thanks for restocking the entire Canadian site so quickly after that weird glitch where 75% of products were OOS. - I'm noticing better point perks already !! -Your customer service reps (the ones I talked to) certainly did not sound like they had been talking to angry customers all day. Nor as if they were having the same conversations over and over. So thank you to them.   Thank you for listening to us

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.

Hello Canadian BTers!   I'm starting this new thread to act as the official update location of new launches, LE products, and brands that are on coming to the US site but may be launching (and returning) to Sephora's Canadian site at a different time. There are a lot of changes happening in real time over here, and in the spirit of communication, this thread is to keep our BTers abreast of the information we have. This is not going to be everything, and could also be subject to change (and hopefully we won't need this thread forever), but we are working with the Canadian team to get as much information for you as we can.   That being said, we will only be using this thread to speak to dates and info about big upcoming launches, LE products, and brands that are on the US site and are coming to the Sephora.ca site. If you have  a question about any of these things, drop it here, and we will do our best to track down the answer for you.   I realize that you guys are feeling all of the feelings right now about the new warehouse move, but this thread is not a venting loop, nor is it a thread to deal with customer service issues (as I don't have any access to our order systems). We've got quite a few of those on the community already (for totes good reason), but I'd like to keep this specific thread informational, if possible.   Okay on to the info! Here's what I know (previous releases in spoiler):   New Launches / LE products Spoiler (Highlight to read) Kat Von D 5th Anniversary Tattoo liner - July 9 (will post time when I have it) Early am PT, around 9 am.

I received an email from QVC the other day that said Kat Von D makeup will be launching on their network on September 21, 2015. It will be an hour show from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CST (3:00 pm PST, 4:00 pm MST, and 6:00 pm EST).     For those of you who have never shopped with QVC before, they often offer exclusive products in each beauty line they offer.  I buy Tarte products from both Sephora and QVC, and QVC: (a) offers exclusive Tarte products available nowhere else, including holiday kits and palettes (there is a QVC exclusive Tarte eyeshadow palette with brush available on QVC's website now) (b) often packages products to provide a better value (i.e. will include a brush with foundation and palettes, will sell a set of three lipsticks for the price of two, and will offer super sizes of popular products for the price of a regular size), and (c) launches beauty products and maintains exclusivity rights for a period of time (such as Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea Water foundation coming out this month).   I know at this point it sounds like I work for QVC, but I promise I do not, I'm just excited about the potential of obtaining exclusive Kat Von D products, having her products packaged to offer a better value, and seeing Kat present her products and any tips or hints she might provide.   I would be remiss if I did not mention the drawbacks of shopping at QVC - shipping is expensive ($3.00 for each product, not each order) and it seems slow.  Sephora has me spoiled with free 2 day shipping, and that is why I will continue to split my beauty purchases between Sephora and QVC.  :-)

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.

I was so excited when first got the email about the new Canadian warehouse, package will be delivered so much faster! But in reality, although my friend got her package super fast (second-day delivery to Toronto), my orders has been cancelled 5 times because things are out of stock (I was not even ordering the same things)! I am just wondering it is just me or others also experienced such situation...   So fellow Canadians, do you love or hate the new warehouse? why?

I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

What are your beauty pet peeves?   Here are a few of mine   When there's a huge hype around an item/brand or your own hype to get something and you get it and you are just meh.   I recently got a few items that were taking FOREVER to get to my house.  Canada Post was sooo slow at processing... the items were stuck with them and the tracking wasn't moving at all.  I was so excited and couldn't wait for them to be delivered and finally the items just showed up (tracking not updated) and I was like meh... not too impressed with what I got.  I thought I'd love it but no... not really. Swatched and sitting in a drawer somewhere... awww that just kills me lol   Another one (and this is for the Canadian girls). When you see free shipping on your favorite beauty products and then notice below in very small font US ONLY. ugh   So what grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!
Lips
I received a sample of Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment, and I am liking how my lips feel in the morning, BUT its pricy.  Is this worth the splurge?  How does it compare to the Bite Agave Lip Mask?  I normally use either Aquaphor for lips or Rosebud Salve at night, but I'm not sure they are thick enough to stay on my lips all night. 
Eyes
Can any of the mods advise whether or not these will be available for Canadian customers to purchase soon?
