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?
I would have gotten mine today had UPS not left 2 of my boxes behind at the shipping facility :face palm: Hopefully tomorrow they won't leave without it. I managed to get one of my Sephora packages from black Friday though. OT: the UPS guy was using a budget truck to make deliveries...interesting, he said the other truck was too full so he had to use it....

Okay, so I'm a mini perfume addict and the 25 days of giving minis totally got my attention. Since monday, I've been placing a minimum of $25 orders just to be able to redeem a mini. I don't wanna be spending $25 everyday just to get minis coz my wallet is still recovering from all the November shopping I made. Question is: Can I just place just ONE $1 order EVERY DAY til the 25th day just so I can redeem a mini perfume everyday? Will I get banned if I do this? Mods?
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.
I plan to buy the Mac mineralize skinfinish natural and my perfect match is ''dark''. However people says it does oxidizes after few hours. What do you guys think? Should go to a shade lighter like medium deep?
Hey ladies, Do any of you have personal beauty consultation experiences in Sephora that you would like to share? Do any of you have custom makeover experiences in Sephora that you would like to share? I have an appointment tomorrow for a personal beauty consultation and am wondering what to expect. I was going to show up just wearing my moisturizer and sunscreen, and let Sephora do the rest. Thinking about it now, I may have a little bit of anxiety with not wearing any makeup in public. It's not that I'm ashamed of my skin (ok maybe I am a little), I just realized how comforting makeup is to me. The routine, however brief it may be on certain days, is soothing. The other thing is, I know before going in that I'm going to spend more than $125 so I was wondering if someone who has done both beauty consultation and make over can tell me what the difference is. Was it worth it getting a custom makeover?
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.
I really want to know how to migrate my purchases to my Beauty Insider profile so I'm getting rewards for all the money I'm spending. I also haven't been receiving the coupon emails that other Sephora customers have. Please help!
Has anyone ever thought about tdoing differnt types of traveling boxes? May be one for just drugstore items, or one for just nail products, a lip or perfume only one, hair products, etc. These may be smaller boxes but shipping would probably be cheaper.
Why did you ask if I had a big family? Oh, uhhhh.. these 8 Philosophy Purity cleansers? Oh yeah... that's right, I have a really big family! This is all for them!!!!! :::nervous laughter::: It would be totally crazy if this was all for me. Ah ah ha ha... :::Hangs head in shame::: ---------------------- The above encounter has happened to me more than once. The most embarrassing was when buying family size potato salad--I live alone and I still like a good value. Is that so wrong?!?!?
So I have seen a few questions about these 2 sales, which one is better and here what I think: It depends. If you only need to spend $50 then wait till December cause you get $20 off $50 so you would spend only $30. For 20% off $50 only save you $10, so you would spend $40. If you spend $100 then: 20% off would take down to $80. And $20 off would also take down to $80. So if you spend $100, either way would be the same. But if you spend lets say $150 then 20% off, you would only pay $120. And $20 off you would need to spend $150-$20=$130 total. So, it really depends, If you spend $50, then use the $20 off $50. If you spend $100, doesnt matter. If you spend more than $100, then use the 20% off. Hope it helped my lovely BBFFs. Have fun shopping! ***** For REGULAR BIs, last year they got $15 OFF $50 ****

The daily promo and perk is a great thing IMO to build some goodwill on Sephora's part. Have any of you looked at the new points perks that are not tied to the Advent calendar? There are some terrific 100 pts perks there as well! Take a peek and see for yourself!
Receive an order today that contained above promo. Received deluxe samples of Lancôme and Buxom mascara samples, Sheseido bio-performance deluxe sample, 1 oz. Living Proof frizz nourishing sytling cream, and a foil of philosophy time in a bottle. Hope that helps people.
So I have been trying to purchase the items in my bag for the sale. When I get to the "Place your order" page, I press the button, and it takes forever to process and then it says that my order has been cancelled due to some sort of number code reason. I have repeatedly tried to place an order and none of them have gone through. Then I went to "My orders" and checked to see whether any of these orders actually went through and none of them have been confirmed on my order page. But I recently checked my bank account and it's stating that sephora is withdrawing my money for each time that I tried to place the order (approximately 12 times) even though the website explicitly said that my order was cancelled! Over all, sephora has withdrew almost $3,000 from my bank account!!!! This is ridiculous!!! Can a mod please contact me to fix this!!!
Hey guys! I am about to hit Rouge and I know that this question has been asked before but I´ll ask it again just to see if there has been any updates: Have any of you recieved a "surprise gift" yet???? So far I haven't heard of any
I know with all of the banning news we've been hearing now, I've been a lot more nervous placing orders, even though everything I order is for myself or for gifts and I AM NOT A RESELLER. *cough hint Sephora cough* Anyone else feel similarly? Lately there's no better feeling than receiving an email that says "your order has shipped." I don't want to live in fear anymore! And I know there's no clear answer, but do we all maybe want to get together and come up with a list of things that might get you banned? Just to be on the safe side?
We did a little shopping and went to dinner tonight. One place gave me a bag full of deluxe samples and minis. Our server was in college. For her tip, I took a mini in box and folded the bills to fit in the box and stick out. Though the tip was 30% she did not seem to care, she went nuts over the little bottle of fragrance. In the future when I am going to dine out, I will take a deluxe sample for a lady or a gentleman to put their tip in!
