Skincare Stories
Oddly, I received an email shortly after I had commented in a post about how I wasn't that concerned about not having receiving anything free from Sephora. I noted that, although it would certainly be neat to get a free thing, I certainly was not upset about not getting any. Seriously no biggie. Then I got an email that i would be receiving a Free Thing!    I don't have a big wrinkle problem (silver lining to oily skin), but at age 41 I do have a few small wrinkles I'd like to address. I just wish I could use it under my eyes!

Just for fun. If you could "make up" your own set for the Black Friday deals, what would be in it?  I'd love to see: - Glamglow mini set - Mask set, with 3-4 minis from different brands - Jurlique set, maybe with a small rosewater spray and face oil - Korres Wild rose trio - A larger sampler set with multiple brands and items, costing more than the $10 but still at a decent price for Black Friday     What about you?

SO this is my second time posting on here. I appreciate the answers I got but what i really need is product recommendations. After about a year of dealing with just the worst skin (SN: i am very very fair skinned) I've ever had in my life, including but not limited to: dry patches, enlarged and puffy looking pores, overall puffyness, ocassional breakouts due to my combination skin leaving my nose and mouth area a bit zitty, extreme sensitivity and itchy skin. etc. etc. anything you can think of really to be quite honest. My skin is just sad and I am feeling hopeless.   I have been using Shea Moisture skincare (after several recommendations) for dry/aging/sensitive skin and to be honest, i see very little to no difference. I infact think I've been breaking out more since I've been using it, not very much relief.   Is there a miracle worker out there? I was looking into Korres' milk moisture skincare set but I just am really overwhelmed with the choices out there. I used to use their thyme honey moisturizer and it is a discontinued item...   Thanks in advance

Hi, I'm wondering if VIB Rouges will get a email as well as the mailer for the $ off. My mailing address is at university and I don't believe I'll reach it in time if I only receive the mailer and not some sort of code via email. Thank you!

I must start by saying that I am crazy about the BF deals and for that I am thankful to Sephora and all the companies that create BF exclusive sets.   I must add that my in-store shopping experiences were fantastic at both my free-standing and SIJCP. Great staff, great stock and I LOVE the giftwrap products. I feel bad for all the folks who had to work on Thanksgiving and I hope that as a company, you do all you can to reward and express your thanks to your SA's and all the folks who work so hard for Sephora.   HUGE shoutout for the incredible on-line process. A lot of us were pretty worried about how things would go and so far-so good!   On the other end....    I respect the decision to try something new, such as was done with utilizing Snapchat. However, I hope you all never do that again. lol. Your current social media platforms have huge followings and it is exhausting for us to keep up with you, keeping up with the latest trends.   I also respect the fact that you all have your reasons for trying to keep things so hush-hush, for "competitive reasons" but I ask that you weigh the pro's and con's of the secrecy. How many FB posts and BT comments have you seen that showed folks were so frustrated with your methods of releasing BF deals, that they decided to shop elsewhere? I am not suggesting that sephora leak their deals weeks in advance (which could have competitive impacts) but rather try to launch your deals at the same time that the "other" store did, which was about a week early. At that point, it's too late for other stores to try and copy, or somehow undermine, the deals you have secured for us.   Finally, please consider advertising your "go-live" time for the on-line deals. Most stores are very open about when their on-line sales will start. The "other" store was very clear about their launch time, which meant I too could plan for starting my shopping. A positive this year was that your "store locations" page was updated with store hours about a week to two weeks early. Perfect. Thank you.    There is just no need to cause such frustration. We all WANT to throw our money at you. Please help make it easier for us to do so.    OH! One more thought... Feel free to use BT as a launching point to share BF deals with us. We are your biggest fans and will give you all a zillion hearts.   Respectfully,  hadtotryit   Edit: Just want to add that this is my personal opinion. I know I saw a few posts of folks who were supportive of the use of Snapchat. 😊

Makeup
What an exciting night it has been!    I now have enough eyeshadow to last me forever, enough Murad products at half price to keep my skin happy for maybe a year, and a dozen eyeliners to try (since I struggle so much with liquid liners, I figured if I buy one from every brand, I'm sure to finally find the one that works for me)! I also have my first Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Night Crimson!   What did you get? What did you want to get that went OOS?

Okay ladies, Tarte set is out of stock (it is only 1:30ish am, seriously?). Is there a chance it will magically re-appear online or am I most definitely out of luck? I can't remember from last year if stuff came back in stock after going out of stock.   Also, sorry for the first world problems. I've struck out at three websites so far and I am now cranky & tired.

Are you kidding me???   ... or am I alone in getting the dreaded "You're almost there" page?   Edit: I was able to get in after about 10 minutes with no problems after that (other than the urge to buy more than what I had planned on. Which I mostly controlled. Mostly.) It sounds like any delays haven't been too bad this time around.

Hey guys. Just curious to see how other makeup lovers out there store/display their treasures. I got so sick and tired of having all my products in makeup bags and inside a fabric storage bin, that today i went out on a mission and found and purchases acrylic drawers. ( I cleared the shelves out at HomeSense LOL). Sadly I've asked them to try to get more for me.   Thinking some of us could post and share how we store our makeup to inspire or give each other some creative ideas to get organized.  Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)

All Other Concerns
Hi all,   I am hoping some people here may be able to offer some advice or insight into a little problem I have.   About 10 years ago I started having allergic reactions to any creams near my eyes. They were pretty bad events that left me with my eyelids swollen shut and peeling skin both on my eyelid and the skin under my eye. Eventually I figured out a routine that worked and the problem resolved itself with very gentle skincare and no creams near my eyes. Makeup itself has never seemed to trigger the problem.   In the past couple of years it seemed as though I had 'grown out' of the problem and I have been able to use a wider variety of products with no problem but I have shied away from eye creams. I am now in my early 30s and am interested in introducing eye creams into my regimen. Last night I tried a sample of Benefit's It's Potent and within a couple minutes I could feel the burning. I washed it off but the damage was done and find myself with swollen eyes today.   My questions are these: Is this a problem that other people experience? Are there other very gentle eye creams people can recommend (I have samples of Algenist and Clarins at home but am now a little wary)? Do I even need an eye cream?   I realize this is a little long so thank you in advance for taking the time read this!

Hello, I have dry-combination skin, and it is so dehydrated. I am really looking for something to replenish my skin. Many people are raving about the glamglow thirstymud treatment.  For those who have used it. Did you like it or not

Are the L'Occitane hands creams worth it? I have REALLY dry hands and so far only Aveeno has helped but I am afraid that its not working anymore, I think I need to switch things up. Any ideas?

So before my post gets removed again I'll be super vague and secretive for competitive reasons but.....it appears rouge members may finally get what we begged for for xmas (sorry not the mystical free gift) but maybe a....... that's worth more than previous years     On another note, who else is cooking for Thanksgiving and takes a break by going on BT? Lol, well besides me.
Face
I use Makeup Forever Foundation 185 what is a good concealer to use?   I feel like it doesn't evenly cover unless I should use a better primer or a bb cream  Or is there a better foundation that would provide full coverage?

I use the Kat Von D Lock It foundation in deep 66 and I want to know what should be my shade in the  KAT VON D Lock-It Powder Foundation! Thanks in advance.
Ask The Experts
I bought Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation around a month ago. In my experience, it dries quickly and leaves me with gross dry patches, plus the coverage fades fast as well. I hate it. I have given it many chances, including trying several different moisturizers and tools to fix my problem (this is why I've kept it as long as I have.) I do still have the original packing and the receipt. I have used it quiet often, but there's still a ton of product left.  Also, what foundation would you suggest to me? I obviously need moisture in my foundation, and would like to have one that won't clog my pores or break me out. Thank you!

I bought naked basics 2, and just recently Becca neutrals looking for neutral eye color that works for me. naked 2 Basics isn't working well. I should get the becca in a few days. Should I invest in the Viseart? Just trying to find shades that go on smooth, creamy and with good color. Thanks!
