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.

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: Tom Ford Burnished Amber, Violet Dusk Eyeshadow Quads (KateLovesYSL)   MAC Proenza Schouler Ocean City Coral blush ( Mochapj, notcreative)   Tom Ford Blush Guilt Illuminating Cheek colour (sdbeautyjunkie1)   Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros (minibux)   Tom Ford Lips and Boys in Alejandro (greenchilli)   Chanel Ombre Contraste Sculpting Veil in Notorious (minibux,KateLovesYSL)   Tom Ford She Wolf (lipstick4soul)   Tom Ford Blush in Narcissist (KateLovesYSL)   Unicorn Sightings:    Tom Ford Nude Dip eyeshadow quad: available at Selfridges online.

Today: Sunday Feb 22, Sephora held an exclusive VIB event for 500 points (you had to reserve a spot). The event in Phoenix was held at Mane Attraction Salon (which is licensed to exclusively use and sell B&B products) between two times 10a-12pm & 1pm-3pm. Were there other cities that did this too?   This was different than the in-store Sephora event held in freestanding stores Saturday. There were raffles for botox, Smashbox, Custom Makeovers (Sephora), and B&B products. Mimosa's flowed and there were lots of snacks. Every guest got their hair styled and a product consultation, as well as a quick Smashbox makeover. Then at the end, everybody got a free B&B tote bag with about $100 worth of stuff including a Sephora gift card!   (You can look at the hashtags in the bottom picture for more pictures from the event from other guests. All in all, this is how you do 500 points. :-)      
My mother recently went to a Sephora to pick me up a few things and now I am trying to redeem my beauty insider points from my receipts how do I do this?
The 100 pt Marc Jacobs highliner in black was listed under the rewards boutique recently, but now it's no longer there. Does anyone have the link for it?
Last year, we stopped doing the makeup contests. I tried hosting the last one, but there weren't enough entries.    In case you're not familiar, every month there is a theme, and you have to create a look based on that theme. It'll be judged by a variety of factors by an anonymous judge panel on BT and by how much the community likes your look.   Is there enough interest in doing monthly makeup contests if I restart them? We'd need at least 6 entries per month to really make it worthwhile.    There will be a prize at the end of the year

Any ideas on what it could be? If it's a Bite Beauty product I am going to be sad I will have to wait until next October!

From yahoo:    "The set features deluxe size samples of MAKE UP FOR EVER's Smoky Extravagant mascara and Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N9."     For the men: Sephora is offering its male Beauty Insiders a reason to celebrate with an exclusive gift from JACK BLACK. The deluxe-sized sample of JACK BLACK Performance Remedy™ Turbo Wash™ Energizing Cleanser for Hair & Body contains rosemary, eucalyptus and juniper berry for a refreshing sensory boost any time of day.
So, I thought this would be a really useful thread. Only in the past year have I started wearing foundation every day and am looking to expand my collection, but sometimes color matching is really difficult, especially since certain brands are sold in certain stores which are difficult to get to in-person. I thought everyone could list the foundations they have found that match their skintone, which can help others who are in the same shade range as them. Also, if you see someone posts with the similar shades to what you wear, you can suggest more colors that could also work for them!   I have found good matches with: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation - 00 Alabaster Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer - Terre Neuve Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation - 1 Perfect Ivory MUFE Mat Velvet + No.15 Jane Iredale Amazing Base - Ivory Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm Slightly too yellow for me: Jouer Matte Moisture Tint - Porcelain Bourjois Healthy Mix - 51 Tarte 2-in-1 Foundcealer - Fair NARS All Day Luminous - Siberia Slightly too dark for me: NARS Sheer Glow - Mont Blanc Dior Star Fluid Foundation - 001 Ivory
UD's Electric palette is not suitable "for immediate use around the eye area" despite being paraben free.  Any good, bold colors out there that aren't pumped full o' crap?

Happy New Year.   I received my sale packages from Sephora and Charming Charlie. Purchased Some Korean Face Masks from my local Korean store today. With Skin care 2x, 3x points promo in Jan hoping i will buy some skin care products. Now I want to see all your hauls    
I just want to know, when one can be Hall of Famer? with 400 hearts?
Hi there - does anyone know if there are any % off discounts coming any time soon?  I used my 10% off one and now I have a whole bunch of stuff I want to buy but I was hoping there would be a promo code coming soon or something.

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   Dec 6-7 @ SiJCP -  Urban Decay Event, free FULL SIZE (1.18oz) Naked Skin Illuminating Beauty Balm with any UD purchase!       Local Events   Los Angeles, CA   San Fransico, CA       Santa Monica, CA   Events in Canada   Eaton Centre   Yorkdale    Rideau Centre, Ottawa      
The points on my VIB card don't match the points on my online account. Is there a way that I can combine them?
Canadian BTers who get subscription boxes, which are your favourites?   I want to jump on the bandwagon, but money is tight so if I'm going to only pick one, which should it be?   And while we're on the subject, I know Birchbox is now available in Canada... are there any other US ones you wish we could get?
I don't have a card, (I signed up online) so I didn't have a Beauty Insider card at the checkout. I still have the receipt - can I still get my points online?   [Edit] Sorry I think I explained it wrong - I didn't have a card at the store (not online) but I still have the paper receipt.
I was a VIB for a few years.  I did not just happen to spend enough to qualify, I made sure I qualified and maintained my status by purchasing  all my beauty products at Sephora.  Two years ago I changed the email address associated with my account. The next time I made a purchase, I tried to use a promo code that was restricted to VIB's only.  It was rejected and I discovered that my VIB status and points had disappeared.  I called customer service and explained the problem.  I was told that they cold not confirm my previous status and they not could not find information on my previous email address.  The associate stated that the only way I could attain  VIB status would be to spend the required $350.00 again.   I was so disgusted that I stopped making all of my purchases at Sephora and didn't even bother to try to attain VIB status again.  Has anyone else had this problem?   If so, were you able to resolve it?
My mom wants to give me her free VIB complimentary makeover, but she won't be with me for when I would like to use it. What do we have to do before I will be able to use it? Can I just bring the card in with me and how long is the free makeover for?   Thank you!
So after Last Nights Purchase I'm cutting off. (Need To! HAHA) Also, Im starting a 60 day workout plan (Insanity Max:30). Im excited. So to behave and have control im gonna stop shopping and spending untill I complete the 60 days! Itll be a good reward if i make really good progress People can join me on this too if yall like!   Just thought i'd share  
  I bought an item few days ago, but I didn't bring my BI Card again. Can I get my BI point? ;-(

Today I came home and was super excited to have 8 Sephora boxes to open up even though most were gifts for my family and friends. I had purchased a few of  the Ocos Locos 2, Feminine Palettes, Philosophy make up removers , etc from the recent sale   First of all, I noticed that instead of receiving the Sephora gift bag like I requested, all 8 orders were in big gift boxes.   Then, after opening all of my packages, I was missing 10 samples in total. All of the ones that I was supposed to get the Kate Sommerville exfloiant were missing. I know that they are allowed to substitute samples, which they did for some, but I was still missing 10 !   To make matters worse, I was missing 2 of the Clinique Smart serums that I was supposed to get for using the SMART promo code.    I'm not impressed at all with the warehouse! Can someone please tell me what is going on with the warehouses?

Not sure if this is allowed here, but since Sephora carrys many of their brands, and I'm not posting links I figure it should be ok!     Do any of you ladies/gents participate?  I've gotten a few home studies in the 2 or so years I've been on the site and quite a few informational studies!  The comp. is hit or miss, with no rhyme or reason!  One comp. I got was almost worth $400, and another $30!
I made a purchase and only got 20 of the 60 something points
My Sephora account was hacked at 6:48pm EST yesterday! I got an e-mail from Sephora saying my e-mail address had been changed. Unfortunately I didn't get home until much later and the Rouge line is closed. For whatever reason, whoever hacked my account didn't bother to change the password, although they did change my e-mail address associated with the account so I've been able to regain access. I would very much like it if either Diana or Candace would contact me so we can discuss what the next steps are that should be taken and whether or not we can track the IP of the a-hole who decided to mess with my account.
I recently purchased the Gucci Guilty on Feb. 13 2015, which stated that I would receive 3x the points, and they have not shown up yet; today is Feb, 19 2015. Please advise.

I'm wondering if this happened to anyone else.. At last night's event the girl at the register next to me was trying to buy multiples of several items. The cashier told her that there was a limit of 3 per item, per customer. The girl's English was almost nonexistent because she just kept giving a blank stare and asking "how much?" so the cashier finally told her that she would just do multiple separate transactions so she could buy all of the items. I don't know what she was buying, and she very well might have been purchasing the same item for her nine sisters back home, but it made me wonder -- why even put these policies in place if no one is sticking to them?   Every time I check the sephorahaul tag on Instagram it's flooded with people selling Sephora and Ulta exclusives overseas through their accounts. I don't begrudge anyone for trying to make a living however they can but it is annoying to see tons of the Too Faced melted lipstick sets for sale on there when they're sold out online and in stores.   I also saw massive amounts of girls writing to Sephora's FB page about their accounts being locked and accused of being resellers -- an inordinate amount, it seems. Just wondering if anyone else has seen any of this stuff going on?
I am really impressed with all of those who give out such great advice.   All of your time an efforts has be come a great marketing tool for Sephora.  Apparently Sephora has already come up with a system to rate your level of activity on their message boards.  Perhaps when you get up there, they should give you extra points towards your VIB perks.   I would probably never get up there - but there are several ladies on who deserve a little something extra!!!
