I just received my 5k Elizabeth and James reward, here are the pics. I know many of us are upset about these rewards, but I didn't mean to hurt u guys, but this thread is just for showing the pics of rewards BTers received. I stayed up whole night, slept only 3 hours, and it was like mad rush. Did I like the reward, seriously I don't know, I wanted this reward from the time beauty2sample calculated, but after receiving I'm not happy, bag is small, doesn't look so good, I would never spend $550 on this bag and sunglasses didn't fit me perfectly. Over all I'm neither happy nor sad. I just hope in future sephora come up with great rewards, more quantity, release them in day time, main thing, our Canadian sister should also redeem these rewards. So share ur pics guys.   I posted this one in intention that perks were not that great, and please don't feel bad for lossing them, they are not that worthy. I want to clarify one thing, when rewards sneak posted we first thght only perfumes are a set, but later beauty2 sample said it comes with bag and glasses, and calculated total value also, me being bag person, I love to get bag, so bought it, but when I received I didn't like it much, it is like buying lipstick online, then didn't like it. So is it something wrong, last year I want to get bite lippie perk, but didn't , it is problem with sephora, not me. I stayed whole night for this and got it, if u want to question, then ask sephora, y me. I am the one who felt very very bad when Canadians couldn't get it when I knew from cs, I posted immediately. Finally as all of u said, saying everything and adding don't want to be rude, but u said it rude. I thought BT is my own kinda of place, friends with makeup, but.

Just a place to talk about these rewards with each other. I know I'm super excited to see what roles out

A fellow BT-er is sending me a "reward" and wants nothing in return.  So, I decided to pay it forward.  As many of you know, I'm a little too into Korean skin care and indie perfumes.  So I'm going to give something away…full sized and fun.  Maybe more than one…and I'll probably throw in some samples.  To enter…comment on this thread and answer the question: name a brand or product you love that I'll probably not recognize or tell us all one of your beauty rituals (even just washing your face every day). Good luck!  I'll figure out a winner on Sunday and send them a PM.  If I don't get an address by Monday I'll pick another winner…and so on..

As some of you know I was able to get the 10K Josie Maran perk. There was no information about where the trip was, when it needed to be redeemed, etc... when the perks went live. It wasn't until AFTER I placed my order that I noticed the trip is for PA. I LIVE in PA! So obviously this is not a perk that is worthwhile to me, let alone worth 10K points. I wanted to be able to just cancel it and get my points back so someone who would truly enjoy the trip would have a chance at it.   Sephora CS messaged me to essentially say: my reward was non-refundable non-returnable according to their terms of service. (Paraphrased since a mod deleted what was actually written) This is absolutely disgusting in my opinion. Sephora gives out points like candy... they've been doing it ALL day! And I can't even offer up my trip to anyone else! Someone who would actually enjoy it! For the record, my order has not shipped or anything like that.    So thanks, Sephora... for really outdoing yourself! Just when I thought your customer service couldn't get any worse. ***Edited to add my response*** **Oh and apparently my message from Sephora CS was edited out by a mod***     So what you're telling me is that because your IT people didn't have any sort of description up when the perks launched (at 4am EST by the way), that we as consumers are supposed to just take responsibility for whatever it will eventually say? I thought being clear and concise was the responsibility of the MERCHANT not the CONSUMER. I'm not sure how that is binding in any way, shape, or form. Traditionally these trips are for places like Paris and LA, there's no way anyone would assume that this year's perk would take place in Pennsylvania. That's ridiculous. Additionally, last year people were refunded for their "mega" points that were unsatisfactory (the purses and the custom Bite lipsticks) so I'm not sure why this doesn't count in the same way. It's beyond outrageous to do this when you could've made this customer happy by simply returning my points and another customer happy by offering this reward again when so many people missed out. All with a few mouse clicks and keystrokes. There were several people on Beauty Talk (you know, the place where your most loyal customers gather) who would've really enjoyed having this trip, so it's honestly awful the way you're handling this situation. Just remember, you're alienating customers who have accumulated 10K+ points. Those points don't come without purchases. It's Sephora who is losing money and garnering bad press because of "customer service" like this.   Melissa

I am starting this thread to bring attention to the exclusion of Canadians from the Mega Rewards promotion. I myself tried to add the KVD 1000 point perk, which in the fine print stated Valid for US and Canadian residents, when I added it to my bag and checked out, it said it was not available for Canadians. This is very unfair treatment of the Canadian customers, who spend as much (or more considering the products are more expensive in Canada), to have these rewards available on the Canadian site and then not allow us to redeem them was wrong. Any other Canadians who experienced this (or supportive Americans), use this thread to bring attention to this issue!

I know we're all hating on Sephora these last few days and I'm absolutely in agreement with everyone on that. I too have spent a sleepless night and I'm Canadian so we all know what happened there...   With that being said, just wanted to share some positive Sephora experiences.   Being from Canada (Toronto), prior to Sephora opening up here, Shoppers didn't carry fancy brands so all we had was The Bay, Sears and Holt. Being a young and poor high school/college student, I would save up for months to buy that one or two coveted items and more often than not be disappointed - not knowing how to apply them or just the product not working for me because I was never able to get a sample before trying. That money was very hard earned and experiencing the sadness of getting a product, having it not work out and having no ability to return and exchange for something else, I had to really limit my purchases and think long and hard about whether the cost was justified.   When Sephora opened here, a world of possibility opened up as well. All the products were out to sample, I could spend hours playing with makeup and trying things on. I was able to get help when I needed, try what I wanted and purchase with full confidence knowing that I had an amazing return policy to back up my purchases. Along the way, I fell in love with all kinds of different makeup, was able to try so much and love and enjoy so many products. For those few duds, I was able to return and exchange for something else I loved. I'm now an adult with a full time job and a bit of a beauty addiction which I'm happy to say has been fully attributed to Sephora (in a good way! )   Yes, the loyalty program could be better. Yes, the custom service could also be improved. Yes, other retailers are catching up and passing Sephora on loyalty/rewards. But for me, personally, it is still a girl's makeup wonderland and there are still many things that keep me coming back.

I started this in Greenie's thread, but, people suggested to make a new thread for this, so here we are...   So, Spring is finally here. Or... sort of....

I should get paid by Sephora marketing for starting this thread for them.   What, if anything, could Sephora do at this point to regain your trust and loyalty to the company?   For me, I would be appeased by a year of 500 point perks and a $50 gift card. I would be miffed still, but might be willing to sweep this guffaw under the rug.

Beauty Confessions
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last. If I last 30 days, maybe I will go longer.  Ha...lets see if I last 2 weeks.   Anybody else?  I am quite excited about it....   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Day 1, 11/10/14 - Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose.

Like as most BTers here I too am very disappointed with Sephora. I stayed up late last night, dozed off for a few minutes and woke to realize all (except a few 1000, which not interest me) rewards were gone. I attempted to call the Rouge Line and kept getting disconnected. At first I thought it was the Rep who hung up on me and got really upset. But when I called back, two more times, that got cut off too. I guess I wasn’t the only upset customer bombarding their phone lines. I decided to give it a break.   I called a few hours later and again, after reaching a Rep, I got cut off. Why? I called again for the fourth or fifth time today and now it wasn’t only to complain about their rewards system or lack of, but also their customer service. After a few minutes of my uninterrupted speech all the Rep told me “I’m sorry you missed the rewards, we will be having more rewards in the future so stay tuned” When ? What? I asked her. She said she didn’t have any info only that Sephora keeps adding new rewards constantly. And that’s all I got …a simple “I’m sorry you missed the rewards” that felt like she said ' Ha ha that’s what you get for not taking those extra cans of energizer drinks to keep you up all night!! ' no points or anything, not that I care since I can't redeem for something I really want.   I’m so angry but not as much as how disappointed I am with Sephora right now. I haven’t received any email or notice about this. Honestly, I ask myself why even bother shopping at Sephora anymore. I feel like I’m in a bad relationship with Sephora; keeps me awake up all night and doesn’t satisfies me. I give and give to Sephora and I don’t receive much back. Isn’t that a really bad relationship? I get more perks/rewards at other places than here, seriously. Yes some products/brands I can only purchase here and those will be the only products I purchase from Sephora from now on. I may not spend tons and tons of $$$ at Sephora but I do spend a good amount of my income here. Let this be a lesson to me. To put myself to sleep and not rely on Sephora’s rewards anymore.   I do want to add that the true reward that I have received from Sephora and I cannot find anywhere else, is this BT community. I come here everyday, yes everyday. I might not comment much but am stalking threads and reading people’s comments. It’s has become something kind of therapeutic for me. I have learned so much here and to me this has been the greatest reward Sephora has given me.   Thank you BeautyTalk!

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 just want to thank beauty2sample for her work, which sephora should do, i should say beauty2sample informed us, if not her we didnt even know, and by the sephora sends emails, all will grabbed by someone, but now most of them are grabbed by BT members. Im not saying thank u because i grabbed one, but even if i didnt grab i will post this thread, she is just awesome, she detected the date, some perks, more promos before, i think sephora should join Beauty2sample in there IT dept.     Finally Thanks To B2S, ur very helpful to BT

Just wanted to create a forum where everyone can vent and am also curious as to how bad it can get or if I'm the only one that feels angry and embarrassed after leaving my local Sephora for being treated badly. Please feel free to share your stories!

I hope you guys don't mind me starting this one off early. I feel like April is my month. New job and all. So here's a new makeup item added to my sailor moon collection.    So basically. That cap can be put on a pen or pencil or my eyeliner.

Hi everyone,    Since there are many LE items or discontinued items that we search for, I wanted to know if there is any interest in maintaining a thread to post any unicorns we stumble upon and list where it can be found so others can try to find these items that they are looking for. I thought this might be useful as I found a few items on my trip and also found it extremely helpful when a fellow BT member posted about the availability of Tom Ford's Nude Dip on Selfridges a couple of months ago so that a few of us could finally order this LE item.  I also thought that if there are LE items that people are looking for, they could PM me and I could add it to the main thread so that others would know what others may be looking for. I could update the Found Unicorns on the main post weekly. Looking for your thoughts, suggestions? This would be strictly for limited edition items and discontinued items. Please include location, date found, and price if it is selling for less or more than regular retail price. Thanks in advance!   Wanted Unicorns:   ABH amrezy palette ( minibux, BeautyIsPassion)   Chanel Ombre Contraste Sculpting Veil in Notorious (minibux,KateLovesYSL) Chanel Camelia de Plumes (michelleshops) Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in New Moon (Greenporchlights)   Chantecaille Rose Face Powder (kateye7)   COTY Sephora Marsala eye palette (jcmb, julietta343)   Dior My Lady Blush in 001 and 006 (jellybean917) Dior Amber diamond (aviscardi)   Divergent set (ImHisAngel)   Estee Lauder Heatwave (aviscardi) Givenchy Confetti Powder (MK89, KateLovesYSL)   Guerlain Cruel Gardenia (Rhiannon1419) Guerlain Écrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Turandot (2012 LE) (jenpred) Guerlain's Rouge G's in Gigolo and/or Bee (MK89)   KVD palettes (NIB) including Gypsy, Mi Vida Loca, Sinner and Truth (AmyC)   Lorac mega pro (sdbeautyjunkie)   MAC pressed pigment in Summer Honey (StephaniLynn) MAC True Romantic Blush and MAC Petal Point blush (Javadoo) MAC Alluring Aquatic Bronzers/blush (MK89) MAC whisper of guilt (aviscardi) MAC Bao Bao Wan Opal Beauty Powder (ohsotatooed)   Nars Douceur blush: (bea0t, Ivyxox)   Paul & Joe's kitty lipsticks (FireSpinner, Lynni98)   Sephora Cinderella mirror (Mk89, AmyC, Panda168)   Sigma Creme de Couture shadow palette(StephaniLynn)   Tom Ford Guilt cream shadow (killahbabe) Tom Ford Emerald Lust (Poisonivy9) Tom Ford Violet Dusk Eyeshadow Quad (KateLovesYSL) Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros (minibux) Tom Ford She Wolf (lipstick4soul) Tom Ford Ginger Fawn lipstick (greenchilli)   Urban Decay Honey eyeshadow (Gwenhwyfar)

I, like so many of you here, am completely over Sephora after this "Extraordinary Rewards from 4-4:02am EST" fiasco. I was sleeping, so I could work at the job where I make the money for beauty & skincare. Sooooo, my question is, where should I go now that I am completely done with Sephora?    Ulta's layout & website has always confused me to no end, but apparently their reward system let's you use $ rewards for products? Does that include what Ulta considers "elite" brands (e.g. UD, Tarte, Becca, etc)? Right now where I live, I have no high end department stores around. But in a few months I am moving to LA & will have many more options . Which department stores give the best rewards & have the best customer service experiences at the counters? I have had pretty bad experience with super pushy & judgey Tom Ford & Guerlain reps when I've been at department stores in big cities in the past. Thanks in advance for all recs!

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 !

Now that they've totally messed up this "Extraordinary Rewards" and so many are ticked off about the promotion, what will everyone do now? Just leave and let Sephora have all the points you've accumulated or will you actually wait it out for the alleged Mega Surge at the end of the summer?

So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases. Here's what I've found so far:   Dior Spring 2015 - Kingdom of Colors (Images from A Bit Of Blusher)     Guerlain Spring 2015 (Images from Rouge Deluxe) Isn't this collection so cute?!?!

Not sure how many of you are interested in this line, but it's huge on Instagram. Many people are ordering from them, myself included, for a dupe of LC Cashmere. Well an eagle eyed IG user found a sexual harassment lawsuit against them. And it's seriously gross. I can't post the link here but you can search easily online for John Davler Inc. lawsuit. The VP in question is named Christina Yang. You can also find the link on my IG page. My username is spookifyme.    I really try to support small companies, but I cannot tolerate this type of behavior. The lawsuit is ongoing, they're still trying to wiggle their way out and even tried to make their insurance company responsible. The courts said, uhhh no. I'm taking my money elsewhere. Way too many other companies out there.
