What is going on with Sephora's warehouses?!? 10 missing samples, 2 missing promo code items!
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?

Empties
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.

Anyone up for a drugstore challenge?
Have any of the beautiful ladies here on BT tried using drugstore cosmetics after solely using mid to high end stuff?  I have never really dabbled in drugstore and keep saying I will but then never follow through.  I have a mind to walkinto a drugstore and buy a bunch of goodies they have to offer and play around in drugstore for a week or two.  I'm wondering what I'm missing or what I'm not missing.   Is there anyone who could help me choose some items they like or who would like to post solely drugstore looks and review their experiences with them?  I think it would be fun

I have tried chocolate and dark brown from the anastasia dipbrow line and they are too red toned for my liking so I am looking for a dark ash brown eyeshadow preferably from makeup forever to fill in my brows. Thanks for the help   ETA: I would try a brow pencil but I find them to look unnatural.

Lo and behold - and actual Rouge surprise gift. Color me shocked
Shocked in a good way - of course. I ordered a few things last week, and the arrival happened to coincide with my birthday. So, my order was packed with little bonuses and gifts and such. The usual birthday ROUGE gift, my 3 samples, a couple 100pt perks,  the make-up brush and perfume I ordered, and the FRESH bonus.... And - A 6oz bottle of Sephora make-up brush cleanser.    I had to check the invoice 4 times because I thought maybe I was ordering late at night and somehow messed up and forgot that I ordered the item. But, nope - it is a present and it doesn't seem to be listed on the invoice at all.    Anyone else ever get an unexpected actual gift from Sephora?

Have you been banned from returning items to Sephora?
I have returned 3 items in the past 3 months without receipt. The amount totaled to 45 (at regular sephora) and 30 (at JCP sephora)  so $75 total Do you guys know what the dollar limit on returns is?  Does a return at JCP Sephora count towards returns in a regular Sephora?  I just need to return two more items for which i do not have the receipt. Both were purchased before I got my BI account so there is no way for them to look it up.

Beauty Insider points missing?
Hi! I usually order products online but I recently purchased from my local Sephora store for the first time. Since I never owned a physical Beauty Insiders card (since it was my first time purchasing in store of course) the lady who was cashing me out happily gave me one after I gave her my e-mail address. Once I got home I decided to go online to see how many Beauty Insider points I've accumulated and saw that nothing was updated, even in my recently purchased items log. I assumed it just took a day or two to process, but it has now been a week and my accounts has still not been updated?   If someone can help me out with this I would certainly appreciate it. Thanks!

No rewards in stores?
I've noticed that at my local Sephora stores (there are two around here and I went to both), the 250 point rewards are no longer available at the checkout. In fact, the staff seem to know absolutely nothing about them. I would very much like to cash in my points for a fragrance mini, but I would not very much like to have to shop online and pay shipping in order to get the reward item. I'm quite unhappy about this situation and actually left both stores without the items I was planning to buy because of it. I'm pretty much giving up on Sephora entirely at this point- a rival store is closer to me and they seem to actually let customers use their rewards perks! Just wanted to express that I'm sure customers would be much happier if they didn't have to fork out MORE money in order to get the rewards for money they already spent.
