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?

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.
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 Oct 3-5 -  @SiJCP **Please call before you go to confirm your store is participating!**ALSO, this was told to me by a store manager, she was pretty certain, but people can get dates wrong, so check locally! VIB and VIB Rouge get one free in stock 250 pt perfume perk WITH purchase. Not sure what the minimum is, but it might offically be $35 (though many stores will kind of fudge that as long as you ask for the perk).   Oct 11 -  @ SiJCP's NARS event with free gift. You're invited to experience The Face of Modern Makeup, celebrating the launch of NARS's new All Day Luminous Powder Foundation. Get glowing with radiance enhancing products applied by an expert artist—and take home a FREE gift.*       Local Events   Santa Monica, CA   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Oct 17 - Let Givenchy artists transform you into a Golden Goddess with the glittering Extravaganza Eye & Lip Palette, and complement your new look with Givenchy’s innovative Noir Couture liner and mascara.

I have many points on my VIB ROUGH card. But I did not build my account, so I just did it online. How can I translate my points from card to account?

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

So I know there are many issues with Sephoras customer support lately, and so it wanted to share my positive story today. there is hope!   so I went to Sephora today, and had an amazing time. Everyone was helpful, kind, smiley, and totally willing to give samples without even requesting them. I even had one lady find me later on to give me a few more samples she thought I'd like!    I hit Rouge today (big spenda lol) and they even gave me the Rouge chic week gift and a few more samples. Got a free makeover and the girl was actually good at what she did, and even got me samples of what she used and wrote it all down for me.   on top of that, I emailed Sephora customer support yesterday to adjust my points since I'm Canadian, and they responded super fast and did all my adjustments on my online orders going all the way back to December.   gotta say, it looks like I've dealt with some pretty awesome Sephora staff this weekend!

Okay, so I was supposed to be on a no buy until the November sale. But I've been obsessed  with red lipsticks lately. I already have three reds (not including lip glosses) and another one coming in the mail... And I have my eye on another dozen  one from Cle De Peau. So basically four lipsticks later, I think it's safe to say that I broke my no buy

I'm so upset. I have been saving my beauty insider points for something I actually want. I have skin allergies so I have to be careful with what I use. I got an email about the Yves St. Laurent 500 point gift and immediately looked online for it and it wasn't there. I went to two different stores, which both told me they hadn't gotten it YET. So then I tried calling online and they told me it was all gone and I couldn't get it. So I asked to speak to a supervisor, as I can't imagine how they can send a mass email out to their faithful customers and not have enough to even last a few days. The rep told me he'd have someone call me back. Well, I'm still waiting! I am really, really frustrated and it definitely changes my view of Sephora. If they're not going to have enough stock, either limit the type of marketing they do about the gift or provide something else to people, or just order more of it. 
Is there a way to get the mirror by itself? I don't really need the other items.

Ladies, I just re qualified for Rouge.  Here are a couple of pictures of the Exclusive for Rouges.  Enjoy!!
Hey guys, just in case if you've purchased something through the Lancome website recently and received their DELUXE promo, you might want to check your products. Mine came up as expired (as in an eyecream that expired Aug2014, eyeshadow made in 2011, Cils Booster made in 2010) and I couldn't even check the smaller items because they had no date that I could see.   I've emailed Lancome to let them know. I suspect that it was an old perk that they somehow (?) forgot to check the expiry dates for. It was so unexpected given I ordered directly from Lancome!
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. 
I know that Beauty Insiders get like $15 off a $50 purchase around December, but I was wondering if there will be any other sales before that..thanks!

I'm looking for a new red lipstick that's not overly cool or warm toned; I have clinique's chubby stick intense in mightiest maraschino and it's too blue based for my neutral skin tone. I'd be around an NW20 in MAC. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
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?

And Sephora!   Got this in the mail yesterday. I was excited enough that he just answered my question during that chat, definitely wasn't expecting a gift!   I'm super psyched tho, I already had a small jar I grabbed in a pick 5 at SiJCP, now I got a full size!     Now I just need to like, you know, try it out!!   So cool!!

Received a reply from ebates.ca,  looks like it was Sephora  that made the decision,  not ebates.

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 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.
