Shaking my head!! someone posted this on Sephora's Facebook page and I really hope they do something about it. Instead of canceling orders for "fraud prevention", I think Sephora should spend some time preventing this from going on. How is it even possible that someone has 13 reward cards to sell?
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
So I buy minis of mascaras because even though I use my mascara almost every day I can't seem to use it up.....it's been 5 months now that I have had my mini benefit they're real and I still think it works just fine. I really want to try to use it up or at least wait till it dries out. Do I have to throw it away??
I've never been somewhere that someone applies makeup to my face, so Sephora in JCP just opened up next to me and suppppper excited since I don't have to travel more than an hour away to one anymore! That said, I'm going tomorrow for their Too Faced : Joy to the Girls event for BIs. WOOHOOOO!!! So is it proper to go bare faced or should I wear atleast my face makeup (foundation / powder)? I mean I don't want to waste my personal product nor do I want to look like a zombie walking in there. lol
Okay...here's the deal. It's time for me to make room for baby stuff for the new addition coming in April (Yippeee!!!!). I decided to take a look at everything I have but don't use anymore--and I have quite a few things. Most of the things I have and dont' use are because I love the products but my sensative skin won't allow me to use them. Here's my list: Bare Minerals eye shadows in: onyx (liner), mystery, denim, sugar plum and masquerade Buxom shimmer shadows in Beagle and Pug Make Up Forever Aqua Creme Shadows in Aqua Black and Shade 54 Sephora Shadows in midnight kiss, caroline's pride and armelle Bare Minerals Foundation in Fairly Medium, mineral veil and warmth make Up Forever HD Liquid Foundation in N130 (I think that's the sade number--it's a medium/light shade) VS Pro Bronzing Face Primer VS Tinted Moisturizer/Primer Delux Samples of: Sephora pin-up pink lip gloss (still in wrapper) Sephora Instant Moisturizer (never used) Kat Von D Powder Foundation in Medium 54 9Still in wrapper) Smashbox under eye primer (opened, but not used) Products that have been used: boscia clear complexion tonic Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover Murad exfoliating acne treatment gel and spot treatment Boscia BB cream Fragrances--Full size bottle, most of them barely used: Georgio Armani Acqua di Dioia 1oz bottle and 3.4 oz bottle Ibiza Sol Urban Flowers Paris Urban Flowers London Pur Blanca- Blossom Just Play Philosophy You are Divine Philosophy Love Sweet Love U by Ungaro for her (Four 1.7 oz bottles, still in wrapper)--I love this stuff, but it doesn't love me back :-( Skin So soft Satin Glow Glow Gel (seven 6.7 oz bottle, still sealed) Full Size mark mascara in jet black Few misc eyeshadow colors and lotions Some of the products are used! I know that they are clean and all that...I never use my fingers for dipping into my make-up and I'm not including anything that is not hygenic...like used mascara! And...I'm giving all this away to whoever wants it. If you want it, PM me. but there are a few rules...I'm giving this away because I hope someone can use this stuff. I don't want any trouble and I won't be liable for anything--not that I'm not 100% confident that all these products are perfectly good and all that, but I don't want someone trying to sue me cause one of the lotions made them break out...ok. I'll ship to anywhere in the US, adn I'd like to get this to the post office on Thursday when I go mail out my Christmas presents. I will package everything very carefully and put anything liquid in ziploc bags. But I can't be responsible for any damage that might happen during shipping. I really, seriously just want to give this stuff to someone that can use it, without any trouble. And if there is anything about this post that is against the rules or guidelines, please let me know! I read through them and didn't see anything that would be, but I don't want to be banned from the most awesome forum ever!
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. - I forgot to mention that The Bay will be hosting Beauty Gala's this coming week. You have to buy a ticket but out of the 10$ 2 goes to charity and 8 towards your purchase. Some counters give free stuff when you buy the ticket from them. You get your make-up done too at that counter I'm going and very excited about it! EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON
Did anyone else get sucked in to Ulta's cyber monday and still not even get a shipping notice? I never order from Ulta but they had some gifts I missed out on or didn't have at Sephora (the $10 Art of Shaving kit for my BIL, a $19 Bare Minerals kit for my SIL) and the free gift looked nice. I ordered just after midnight on sunday night/monday morning and it still says "order processing" and since it's been 5 days the pending charges aren't even on m CC anymore. I know other people are having the same issues because their Facebook page is blowing up and they sent an email out letting everyone know they are experiencing delays. They said it will still be here within 10 business days (which is really 2 weeks) but I am not confident my order will complete or have the free gift (if something is OOS it will mess up my christmas shopping because I thought I was done). I get it's shopping season, but in comparison, all my other holiday orders have been here for a few days. My Sephora CM order that I placed late on Monday got here Wednesday. My giftopia order was only 1 or 2 days behind, which wasn't bad at all. I'm on day 6 with Ulta. Anyone else having holiday shipping woes or get sucked into Ulta? I knew I was a Sephora girl before, but I can say with confidence now that Sephora > Ulta. Plus, Sephora's CS has always been good to me. Ulta doesn't seem to be handling this well.
So every year around this time I start watching Christmas movies. Some I own some I watch on TV. What are some of your favorites Christmas movies? Mine are: Elf A dog named Christmas Santa Claus the movie (this is an old one) Miracle on 34th Street The Santa Clause 1 and 2 On the 2nd day of Christmas (which I can't seem to find anymore) Updated...

I love Arnold! Looks Who's Talking Now.
We swatched Urban Decay's new Naked3(!!) palette to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

So I am a bit obsessed with Urban Decay liners. I especially love the browns, purples and greens for my green eyes, so with my most recent purchase of 1/3rd of the Urban Decay liner vault set (shared with the awesome gals Rikkie and Veronika), I wanted to swatch my full line-up of current UD liners. A few are vintage or special edition from the Ocho Loco 2 set - I have marked them separately. Probably my favorite go-to liners right now are Twice Baked or Corrupt for browns, Stash for green, Rockstar or Tornado for purple, plus I love doing slight highlighting accents with Goldmine or Dime.

**UPDATED 12/5** Hey guys and gals - I know with all the problems that's going on right now (cancelled orders, no good deals for BF weekend, etc) that Sephora has had many people feeling pretty down but I just saw this on the main page :: 25 Days of Merry Crazy Giveaway.

I'm looking for either a new foundation or a tinted moisturizer. I have oily skin, but because of my acne treatments, it is drying out and is very sensitive! It is extremely frustrating to attempt to combat acne, but still effectively cover it when areas begin to get dry and red. I have fair skin with pink undertones, I believe. I'm not sure which direction to go in.
I am using Dermablend cover cream foundation. It's a very thick cream foundation. I want to find a good foundation brush that is a good size. I have the average size brush that I think just about everyone has and it's just too small and doesn't work well with the cream foundation. Please help me someone... Oh and I can't spend more 35$ on a brush. Any advice
Does anybody know the American name for the eyeshadow 026 GOLDEN MAHOGANY? I know that the names are different in different contries. http://www.makeup4all.com/wp-content/uploads//2012 /01/LOreal-Color-Infaillible-Eye-Shadows-in-026-Go ...
Currently I wear CG 3 in 1 foundation in Neutral Beige and MAC concealer in NW20. I have light/medium (a little more on the med side) skin with a yellow undertone, blue eyes and dark brown hair. What color would best suit my skin tone in Kat Von D lock it foundation?
Yayyy! I just got it! I set my alarm for 2AM CST, which is the equivalent of 12AM PST. It looks like it was probably up for quite some time, but I can't be sure. Anyway, I was able to order it. YAY! *Edit: It appears that it went live at 12PM CST, according to Sephora's facebook page.*
I am looking for a new foundation to try out, I've always used drugstore brands, besides a time I used Clinique but didn't feel it was much better than what I could find for a fourth the price. I am looking for that airbrushed flawless look, with glow! (everyones dream, right?) I have fine lines in my forehead that I haven't been able to find a good foundation to cover, as well as the occasional blemish. My skin is normal-dry. With so many products its hard to decide which to put my money into and I want it to truly be great with covering fine lines, glow, and long lasting!
This was mentioned on another thread as a tangent but I thought it deserved its own thread. Am I the only one who struggles so much when people ask what I want as gifts at this age (24). The only things I want/need are either in the super expensive or super cheap (socks, toilet paper) category. Gift cards I find super impersonal giving so I rarely ask for them. I feel super guilty asking for either. Am I the only one who has this struggle?
I am taking it on faith that Sephora will get the gift cards into your hands soon. I wanted to start a happy, what did you get thread. This way we can post our new beauty prizes here. I will start. I got the HOURGLASS Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free in Shell. Thanks Sephora, and I want to give a shout out to the Mod Kevin. Kevin if you are listening, you are doing a good job. Everyone here loves Sephora, and just doesn't want to be forgotten, that is the reason for all the anxiety about the gift cards.
Not being a pro at makeup or anything, I've been using the same drugstore brushes for a while, and only applicators for eyeshadows. I want to upgrade to a good but not extremely expensive beginners brush set, and I was wondering if anyone had recommendations? I had my eye on the Too Faced Teddy Bear brush set for a while, but some of the reviewers said it didn't pick up product well. I'm now considering the Sephora Holiday Light Show brushe set, but if anyone has any suggestions (or agree that it would be a good choice!), please share! Thank you so much lovelies <3
Hi, I would like a restart on my beauty products - from skin care to make-up. I am almost 40 and need to start using some products to help hide/repair aging and wrinkles, etc... plus just also want/need new makeup. Can you give me an idea of how much it would cost to get this kind of set up?
Swatches really help me when I'm making purchase decisions so since I find the pinks and purples of the Naked 3 palette so appealing, I thought I would swatch the purples compared to existing Urban Decay products. I have the Naked 3 eye shadow palette AND the Naked 3 double sided liner. I swatched the purple liners I have: Tornando (exclusive to Ocho Loco 2), Delinquent , Ether , then Rockstar with Blackheart (Naked 3) and Darkside (Naked 3) liners. I also swatched the eye shadows Rockstar with Blackheart (Naked 3) and Darkside (Naked 3). For me, Rockstar has been one of my top liner and shadow colors, and I LOVE the Blackheart and Darkside colors, both as liners and as shadows, from the new Naked 3 line. Hope you find this information helpful!! (BTW, I swatched Blackheart first because in the palette it looks light it would be lighter than Darkside, but obviously that is not the case with the shadows!!)
Just ran into these babies while browsing dermstore. Anyone here a Vincent Longo fan? I've been curious about his stuff but it's hard to come by. The eyeshadows seemed pretty nice when I swatched some at Nordstroms. These sets are so tempting and appear to be on sale today!
This should be fun! I thought why don't we fill in the blanks of what we are primarily using right now. It would be fun to see the variety of answers! Foundation: Concealer: Eyeliner: Eyeshadow: Powder: Blush: Bronzer: Lipstick: Lipgloss: Mascara: Brows:
I am an 27-year-old Asain lady and I have acne and scares which left form those aces on my face. Plus, follicles on my face are large and my T-zone is shiny too. So, I want some suggestion for what kind of skin care should I use?
