Do you mean 
My concern is that it's not a blue color texture. The color is dull pastel green. Is that normal? I thought the eye cream was supposed to be blue. Can someone please tell me if the product has gone wrong? 
I have a 10% off code if anyone would like to trade it for 150 points PM me please!
I was wondering if anyone had a 150 point code that the would like to share?! And then if you want I can send you the code for the gel sample! Thanks!
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.

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)
Has anyone won 150 points?
I was highly thinking of getting the Buxom Beauty Gloss roulette , do any of you have it ? Is it worth the purchase !?
What new holiday sets do YOU guys know that will be coming out this holiday season !? too excited to get my hands on some
I ordered a YSL Lipstick last week online. In the time it took for it to get to me, I happened to see it in a free-standing Sephora and realized the color was too pink. When I received it, I didn't even open it up. I knew I was going to return it.   Since I used my JCP card, I went to the Sephora in the JCP store that is 2 minutes away from me. I wanted my card credited. That was not a problem. But the sales associate looked at me and said "Are you sure you want to return this here? You know we have to throw it away." I replied that I had not even opened the box and she said "Oh, that's not why. We don't carry YLS so we have to discard it." My chin almost hit the floor. She asked if I wouldn't prefer to return it at a free-standing Sephora where they could restock it, but I told her in that case they would not credit my JCP card and only give me a Sephora gift card, and I preferred to have my card credited.  Plus the free-standing Sephora is a half hour away and not on my usual  route. (I wasn't even going to think about returning it in the mail, as my last return took six weeks to get processed.)    Honestly, is this how Sephora does it? She said they do it with any brands that are returned there that they don't sell at JCP - just toss them out. This was a brand new $35 lipstick!! I even suggested they keep all those items they don't sell and ship them back to the warehouse or something, but apparently that's not an option.   It broke my heart to think of that poor YSL lippie being tossed out. (If she had thrown it out right then and there, I would have become a "dumpster diva" right then and there!) What a waste!
I don't know any posted or not. It is on sale for $36 (originally $52) 5433?skuId=1444546
Hi, I got a postcard for my B-day, offering a 2-pc Make-up Forever set. There are no Sepora's around where I live. How can I redeem my gift? My day is on the 17th of this month, HELP!
Many hearts and kudos to gingaaa for coming up with this brilliant idea! See her original post here: ure-s-Best-of-Beauty-I-disagree-We-need-a-Best-of- ...   I've volunteered to create a web survey to collect all of your votes on the best products! We were looking to have something comparable to Allure's Best of Beauty, but rather than sponsored products we would have results from actual consumers.    I've narrowed down the categories to what I've listed below under each main topic. Once the survey is created, you will be able to write in your top three favorite products for each category. You don't have to have three for each category, or even one.    Please comment if this list is inclusive enough, or if I'm missing anything, or if you think something should be changed.

Allure's Best of Beauty used to be something I would look forward to every year and I would study each selection with renewed excitement for having possibly found 'the one'.  As years past and I became more familiar with products, my anticipatory excitement evolved into a flatline feeling of doubt.  I know most of the award winners and typically, don't really love or even like the product.  According to the Allure website, they have two categories of winners: Reader Choice, which I tend to agree with more, and Best of Beauty, which is selected by the editors.  Uh-oh, gorgeous!    Yes, you know where I'm going and this is why I am posting.  Benefit's They're Real Pushup Liner was given an Allure Best of Beauty Award.  How is this possible?  I feel like I've been told the Earth isn't round after all.  We spent how many days discussing our disdain for this liner?     I've done as much research as I can, but there isn't a lot out there.  Allure states the ad department isn't involved in the selection, but as another thread recently mentions: can you really trust the editors?  I'm just not feel'n it.   Solution:  Best of Beauty Talk Awards!  This is where I find the real winners, every day.  I would love if Sephora would organize an actual BT poll and post results.  The sample size is smaller than Allure's base, but I don't think that would affect the quality.  Perhaps, make the poll sitewide, with BT favorites?  I'm getting ahead of myself...   Thoughts?
VIB Reward card 2013 - Copy.png
Does anyone know when the VIB sale is in November? I still have a couple of dollars to go before being a VIB. So I need to know in time.
Currently using Ole Henriksen Truth serum. But i want to change, i don't have any problem, but just bored of it, i have very dry cheeks and oily t-zone. Suggestions required. I am looking something which is free of parabens and sulfates. gen-booster-P42343?icid2=ole_lp_bestsellers_carous ...
I notice that my VIP status is expiring on Dec 31 of this year ...what does this mean ? Do I lose all my points ? 
I have to share this somewhere! My husband just asked what I had just placed an order for (eye cream). He then looked at me all confused and this is basically how it went:   "What's that?!" "Ummmm cream for under your eye?" (even more confused look) "You need something special for that?!"   ...I made him feel under my eye, and then the rest of my face. He kinda gets it but I still think he thinks I am insane. Don't get me started on how irritated he gets at how long of a process getting ready for bed is..
Here's mine! I'm on a no-buy, except if there is an amazing promo (like VIBeyes this morning!). So I may as well build my wish list for the next VIB sale! YAY!
Will it change your spending habits or not really?    Just wondering if it's been a wake up call for any of us. I know I was shocked and horrified. 
I just received the perk, i was so excited to check, but it is disappointing, the lip gloss barely showed on me, as i have pigmented lips, and i didn't like the perfume. Is there a way i can return it ?
I don't know if this has already been brought to everyone's attention but Sephora is on the Canadian Ebates site again! Yay!   I know most of us found a way around the initial removal, but it's the sentiment that counts in this!! 90930?skuId=1654235
  - DIOR J’Adore Eau de Parfum (0.17 fl. oz)   - DIOR Addict Gloss in 643 Diablotine (0.06 fl. oz)   - DIOR Diorshow Mascara in Catwalk Black (0.13 fl. oz)   - DIOR Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil (0.5 fl. oz)     What do you guys think?     With the 150 pt reward from memory match, looks like I'm just getting this set for 350pts.    
Is there still the 1000 points perk? If not, when will Sephora has it again? I don't know if i should save my points or spend it for the deluxe samples....  
**Disclaimer..I searched for "swaps" but the threads dated back to 2013 or were no longer there; so I wanted to make sure this was seen....I have a full bottle of Nars' sheer glow foundation in Gobi (pretty light) I've moved over to HG Immaculate.  If anyone is interested, let me know what ya got!! Tx. ~KAM
It's so pretty! I caved! Come on, a mini perfume and a lippie in one box? TAKE MY POINTS!
