Rouge welcome 2017... what I was told in store...
So, not sure if this is true (I'm always sceptical of what I'm told in this store), but I was told this last week:   Rouge cards are being "phased out."   I qualified for Rouge for the first time in November 2016, when Sephora.ca and both of the  only 2 stores in my province were sold out of Rouge welcome kits. I was told by one of these stores to keep checking back for next year's gift, because my account would still say I hadn't received my kit yet and I'd get it as soon as next year's arrived.   Now, both of these stores - not sure about your locals - are well known for treating you differently based on what colour Beauty Insider card you produce, so I was SUPER excited to get my red card. I didn't even particularly care which welcome gift I got, 2016 or 2017, as long as I  finally  got my red card.   After multiple tries, the 2nd store FINALLY told me they had the new kits... But they checked my account, and "it says you're not eligible."   They made me stand there at the counter and go back through 2 months worth of emails to find the one that said "go pick up your welcome kit"... Despite having shown them an email for an "in-store" promo code - with VIB Rouge at the top of the email - that they also said they didn't have.    Eventually, I was given my kit, and when I asked if my Rouge card was in it, I was told:   "Oh, they don't have them anymore. They're phasing out the red cards, and are planning to eventually get rid if the silver and black ones too, because they want everyone to use the app instead."   At this point I was so peeved I just left... and got home to find a) it was the 2016 gift they'd been saying they'd been out of for 2 months, and b) it didn't have a Rouge card in it anyway, but said "congrats on another year at the top."   So who knows how much of this was just BS, but needless to say I am already over this Rouge thing. After years of watching people with red cards be treated like gold in my local stores, while I could barely get help, I'm wondering what why I ever thought this would be worthwhile in the first place...

For the love of all things Guerlain
There is a line that has buried itself in my heart (and my pocketbook), and it is Guerlain.  I know Im not the only one out there.  I thought I would start this thread for the discussion of all things Guerlain, skin care, makeup, perfume, places to get good gwp or good samples.  Experiences people have had, looks people have created with the products.     For me it all started with a makeover by Guerlain's own Marie Line at my local Neiman Marcus.  She spent an hour with me and I left feeling calm and happy.     As a mother of 4 year old twins and as a doctor I spend my live rushing through the day, often without enough sleep, more often without enough water, taking care of everyone else.  It shows on my face, in the fatigue in my eyes, in the puffiness and dark circles under them.  While I have been blessed with good skin it can be confused, aging (I bought my guerlain the day prior to my 40th birthday), but still with an oily t zone, and with patchy dry spots on my cheeks likely from the dry air in my medical work environment.  One of the things she said to me was- make it about a ritual for you, and dont leave it until your going to fall asleep.  I walked out with the orchidee imperiele gel cream, eye and lip cream and white/brightenining serum.  It was a birthday gift to myself.  And now every night I sit down for 15 minutes and wash my face and slowly carry through the ritual.  a ritual of energy expended and renewed.  Breathing in the soft smell of the orchids.  Im still using a cleanser and exfoliator from another line given how much I spent, but I have seen substantial change in my face in the 3 weeks since.     so thats my story, and I would love to share a discussion with other lovers of Guerlain, especially as we eagerly anticipate the 2015 holiday collection.

Love for Brushes
I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds.  I bought a few Hakuhodo brushes and they are amazing.  They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream.  They have so many interesting shapes.  I can't wait to get the 103 and 142. I am really interested in creating a beautiful brush collection.  Show your brushes and share any cleaning and storage tips and let us know which ones are your favorites.

The Beauty Insider Rewards Bazaar FAQs
Q: What is the Beauty Insider Rewards Bazaar? A: The BI Rewards Bazaar is replacing the current BI Rewards Boutique as the one-stop destination for redeeming Beauty Insider rewards online and on your mobile phone.   The new Beauty Insider Rewards Bazaar offers access to limited edition beauty rewards across a variety of point values more frequently, with new updates every Tuesday and Thursday. Plus, rewards valued at 750 points and above do not require a purchase and shipping is included so you have instant access to your desired rewards.   We will continue to add new types of high value rewards so check back for updates!   Q: How do I access the Rewards Bazaar? A: It’s easy! You can access the Rewards Bazaar on the Sephora app, mobile web, and on Sephora.com.   Q: Can I still redeem my points for rewards instore? A: Yes, 100, 250, and 500 point rewards are still available instore. Please note that rewards worth 750 points or more can only be redeemed online from the Rewards Bazaar.   Q: When are new rewards added to the Rewards Bazaar? A: New rewards are released during business hours every Tuesday and Thursday, so be sure to check in between 9AM and 5PM PT.   Q: Do I need to make a purchase to redeem a reward? A: There is no purchase required for rewards valued 750 points and above. To redeem a reward valued below 750 points, you must make a merchandise purchase. Multiple reward redemptions cannot be combined to reach the 750-point minimum (i.e. a 500-point reward + a 250-point reward).   Q: Do I need to pay for shipping? A: All rewards worth 750 points or more ship free, regardless of whether you’ve purchased merchandise. Multiple reward redemptions cannot be combined to reach the 750-point minimum (i.e. a 500-point reward + a 250-point reward). Rewards valued below 750 points ship free with a merchandise order of $50 or above. Additionally, some rewards will ship separately from merchandise items.   Q: I’m a Sephora FLASH member. Can I opt for expedited shipping on my reward? A: Your order is only eligible for FLASH 2-Day Shipping with a merchandise purchase. If you redeem a reward valued at 750 points or higher without a merchandise purchase, your order will be shipped via Standard 3-Day Shipping.    Q: Can I add samples or a promotion to my order? A: If you purchase merchandise, your order will be eligible for 3 free samples and a promotion code. The redemption of a 750-point or higher reward without a merchandise purchase does not qualify for additional samples or promotions.   Q: If I place a reward in my cart is it guaranteed to stay in by basket until I checkout? A: Rewards are offered on a first come, first served basis.  Rewards will be confirmed with your order at checkout so if the reward is limited in availability and sells out before you finalize your transaction, the item will be removed from your basket.   Q: Can I return my reward? A: Rewards cannot be returned or exchanged for points, cash, another product, gift card, or eGift certificate.   Q: My Beauty Bank doesn’t have enough points for this reward. Can I make a purchase and redeem this reward at the same time? A: You can earn points and spend them in the same transaction. If you currently have 70 points, add $30 worth of merchandise to your basket in order to redeem a 100-point reward. Please note that adding a reward to your basket does not reserve it for you. If many clients are trying to order the same reward at once, it is possible that it will be removed from your basket if you have not yet confirmed your order.

How do I redeem my points?
This past Tuesday, I went to a Sephora to buy a foundation that I had previously got a sample of. When I went to buy it, they were sold out in my shade, and so was everywhere else close by. The lady working ordered it for me, but didn't ask me for my beauty insider card or email. Now that the foundation has came in the mail, I figured I could scan my reciept or the barcode on the actual product, but that is not the case. I read to call costumer service but I don't have the time to sit on the phone and be put on hold. How can I redeem my points on this product? Thank you in advance.

Speculate with Me about the 2017 Rouge Gift
So, I am about to qualify as rouge this year for the first time ever. I'm just waiting for something I want to show up on the "25 Days" codes, and I'll place the order.   BUT I'm not sure if I want to ask for my Rouge gift yet, because they typically change it every year, and I am curious about what it will be for 2017. I like Nars, and the blush they are giving away for 2016 is nice, but what if the 2017 gift is even better? What could be better than a Nars blush?   So far, it has always been makeup (if you count nail polish as makeup) and it has always been red. The brands have been nice ones for the past few years.   What do you think it will be? This is just for fun.

Please link them so I can put in the info in the spoilers! Also, I'm curbing my spending to be able to travel more so I hope this encourages others who want to do the same!

VIB Rouge Qualifying Gift
I qualified for my VIB Rouge gift but for some reason it won't allow me to checkout with the blush saying, "Add more items or remove Rouge Requalifying Gift to proceed to checkout."

List Your Foundation Shades
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 Bare Minerals Original - Fair MUFE HD 110 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 NARS All Day Luminous - Siberia Slightly too dark for me: NARS Sheer Glow - Mont Blanc Dior Star Fluid Foundation - 001 Ivory
