Beauty Advent Calendars 2014
I am crazy about advent calendars! (I have several wooden ones that I fill with my parents' and brother's favorite candies each December.)    So last holiday season, when I learned that there were Beauty calendars, filled with skincare, makeup, body, and fragrance products, I flipped! Last year, there was a memorable Benefit advent calendar. (Let's not even talk about this year's over-priced version.)    This year, there are even more advent calendars being offered, but most of them are exclusive to the U.K. I have seen U.K. bloggers post about Jo Malone, Body Shop, L'Occitane and Yankee Candle advent calendars--just to name a few. (You can google "best beauty advent calendars" to see all the awesome goodness.)   I just bought the QVC version!    I hope that the few advent calendars offered in the U.S. are really popular and are snapped up this year, so that retailers will understand the demand. Then hopefully, we will get more such beauty calendars available for U.S. customers in upcoming years.    Who else is crazy about these?       Jo Malone Advent (2014) L'Occitane Advent (2014) Body Shop Advent (2014) QVC Advent (2014)   Selfridges (UK department store) Advent (2014)

Store Event List
So, I was thinking we should start a list of known store events. This will be a list not just for Rouge events, but for any in store brand events, free gift promos, point promos, discount days, etc. Some events are nation wide and in Canada, some are only in certain markets. The main way I check for events is by using the store finder link and entering different zipcodes around me and by asking about any intel whenever I'm in store. Let's pool our intel! Please post anything you know or heard about below and I'll add it to the list.   UPCOMING EVENTS   NATIONWIDE - US     November 5 - @ Freestanding stores, VIB ROUGE event, rumored to be on a Wedneday evening, not certain of the time yet, and may vary store to store.   Local Events   Los Angeles, CA Spoiler (Highlight to read) Oct 18 - Hollywood & Highland store:    Get a flawless complexion with Nude Miracle, Lancôme’s new lightweight foundation that blurs imperfections and blends seamlessly.

Goodbye Rouge (the bittersweet edition)
So I'm about $400 away from re-qualifying for Rouge. I commented earlier this year that my goal was actually not to re-qualify. I'm not sure I will make it, since the promos (they are the ones that get me- always!) are so good these days. Also, of course, the holidays are coming up along with the VIB/Rouge Sale(s). As I am ready to part ways with Rouge, here is the bittersweet rundown:   Loves: I loved the free shipping you offered! I loved the awesome Rouge promos I got and were offered (even the ones that I didn't choose to get)- I loved them all I love access to the Rouge board and getting to see what my fellow Roug-ies have to say!   Not so great: I didn't really get to partake in any events but in the past, VIB events seemed to last the whole day. So you could go in whenever and all SAs would be so great and giving (of samples) during those events. I could have purchased the shipping for a nominal fee of 20-25 dollars and it would have been just as nice. Actually, I don't remember placing any orders less than $35 anyways so it wouldn't have been that bad to meet the $50 minimum offered to everyone. I spend so much money on makeup and have so many dupes to last a few lifetimes over! (Although sometimes I would rather quickly swipe Tarte over my eyelids than UD- lol) Free Rouge Gift- I know Rouges have harped on this quite a bit throughout the year and I see action taken to make us happy, but that elusive gift just never came.   I guess as a consumer I've started looking for the best deals and know that the biggest voice I have is with my wallet. Therefore, it is with both happiness and sadness that I let this status go. Like I said, I'm not sure where I'll end up at the end of the year, but I am OK with it either way.

Brushes have a strong unpleasant smell
So recently I ordered a Sephora travel brush set. I was pleasantly surprised by the softness of the bristles, and the quality of the travel case as well. One thing I did notice that kind of made me worried is that the entire set had quite a strong scent (I suck at describing scents, but to me it was a mix of plastic and wool, and it was unpleasant). After I washed the brushes (as you would before using them), the smell became more intense (except now it smells like wet wool) and it hasn't gone away even after I left the brushes to dry. Now my question is: Is there a way to get rid of the smell without damaging the bristles, or should I just return the set? I know I won't be able to use them on my face when the smell is headache-inducing (unfortunately, I am very sensitive to all sorts of scent)

Why i purchased in this Sephora store? Bad Experience
Today i visited my local Sijcp store, to purchase Nars powder foundation. I generally purchase online, but i need this urgently, i picked the product, while checkout, i saw some liquid foundation marks on outer box, so i asked sales person to check whether it is unopened or not, she checked and said it's new completely, but after coming home, when i opened i was shocked to see the sponge/applicator in the product is used one, not new one, and powder spilled a bit on top of closed pack. How can see say lie to me, and i feel pity myself as i believed her and i didn't even check myself. This is not i expected from Sephora, and the women at check out is rude, and when i asked for sample, she responded rudely. I feel she is new to store, and she is the only one available in store, i generally see atleast 3 or 4 to help, but only 1 available, and the store is completely filled with people, so she is managing at the check out as well as helping others, she is not doing well. I think sephora should place atleast 3 or 4 members in store. I really hates to use my Nars powder now, after knowing some one used, who knows what skin problem the used person had? I need it immediately and i cant use. I know i can return, but i feel this as cheating.
