I went in to exchange a Bite Lip Tint for the new Bite Agave Lip Mask today. Simple, right? Wrong. Everything was going swell until I reached the cashier (if you can call her that). She didn't have any trouble with the exchange transaction, but short-changed me. When I let her know that she owes me money, she sort of huffed and went to call her Manager to open the cash drawer for her. Once she gave me my change, she pushed my item into my hand without asking if I even needed a bag, and I went on my merry way. I was on the subway when I decided to check out my new purchase. Lo and behold - it was my Lip Tint. You can guess which word went through my head. It starts with an F. I had to take the subway back to Sephora right away, because, lord knows, I didn't want them blaming me for any of this mess. I arrived back at checkout, get to the same cashier, and told her what happened. Her Manager comes over once more, and has the nerve to ask me why I didn't check that the item was the right one! Am I responsible for your badly trained employees that can't differentiate between two different boxes and can't do basic math? In the end, the manager grabbed me a new Agave Lip Mask, and my cashier girl rolled her eyes at me. What a wonderful day shopping at Sephora! I'm glad to be so valued as a Rouge member! Not going back anytime soon!
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 know makeup only has a certain amount of time before it goes bad, but it always seemed to be that more people said this rule rather than following it. I know lots of people who use eye shadows, blushes, bronzers, lip products, powders, and foundations that are 4+ years old even though it is advised to throw them out after a year or two. Mascara has a life span of 3-4 months, but I know people who use mascara that is a year old. Personally, I do not throw away my makeup. As bad as this may sound, I still use eye shadows and blushes/bronzers that are 3+ years old. And some of my lipsticks are even older than that.... The only rule that I somewhat follow would be the powder rule. But that's just because I use powder instead of foundation, so it is easy to go through those in a couple months. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone else uses makeup longer than they should. I don't like to waste my products which is why I hold onto them for so long.
Hi, I went to Sephora today and the Ottawa Bayshore location had the 1000 pt perk already. The SA said it should be available in all stores already. My first thought was that they look beautifully displayed in the box The SA was sweet enough to open a set as a tester for me since she said the colours are limited edition. The lipstick was a raspberry red/purple. It really depends on how much or how little you put on. I know that you should prep your lips before applying a dark colour but I didn't have time to do that when I tried it on so it started to bleed within 2 hrs. Maybe sooner, but that's when I first noticed. I'm used to YSL and Tom Ford lipsticks so I found the lipstick drying.For me, the colour was not flattering (I only tried the lipstick). I had swatched them both but forgot and washed my hands! I'll have to go back sometime this week and take pictures (I was too in a rush, sorry!) The gloss leaned brown, that's all I remember. I won't be spending my points on this perk as I didn't find this colour flattering on my tanned asian skinned. Also, for 1000pts, I was really hoping there was more than just a lipstick and lip gloss. The pic is after having it on for 3 hrs and eating a bit. Sorry the lighting isn't great in the pic!
Hey everyone! I'm a teenage guy and I love skincare. I'm starting to get into very natural looking makeup just to conceal and even out some redness. Im very excited to be part of this forum! I get very passionate about this stuff! I just love it. I want to work in the beauty industry after I graduate!
My Local Sephora is usually fantastic, never had a complaint about them... until today. I returned 5 products in-store today.. from 4 separate purchases I made during spring fling. 2 unused and unopened... and 3 products I really disliked. So the teller calls over the manager because it is a larger return, which I totally understand.. The manager looks at me and says.. You want to return all of these, you used them all.. and are returning them? Don't you know you can get samples so you don't waste so much product." and gives me an eye roll and a condescending look. So I tell her that 2 are unused and the other 3 products were all skin care and did not work for my skin.. I thought used products that didn't work were able to be returned.. Is this not the case? Or does everyone, get a lecture when they return a product used? Curious if you guys make returns of used products? I personally am really turned off getting samples from jars and such because people are constantly putting their dirty hands in to the product and them I am supposed to put that on my face. Just a gross thought for me. Am I wrong in returning used Skincare?
I am 29+ and looking for some age preveting thing.I have oliy/normal skin with occasional breakouts and big pores .My forehead is bit darker than rest of my face.I went to store and SA recommended this to me.I grabbed a sample but still has to try.I am looking for suggestion if someone tried it and how did they like it .Is there anything else you guys recommend ? http://www.sephora.com/retasphere-2-in-1-retinol-n ight-cream-P377369?skuId=1490341#askAndAnswerTab?
I was searching around and stumbled across this: Fresh Sugar Ruby Lip Treatment, which is listed as VIB Rouge, but not yet available. The color description states that it is a shimmery rouge tint, which I love! Sounds like everyone is defiantly getting geared up for Fall.
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!!
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.
I am hitting up my local Sephora tomorrow and was just wondering if you guys have some products that you have been loving, or something worth checking out or some new products I should try. If wondering, I have oily skin, So if you think some products are worth checking out, let me know
Okay I have a few questions for anyone who is willing to help I'm watching youtube sephora hauls and people have been talking about "setting your foundation" with a white powder? what is that and what does it really do? also its summer and i feel like when putting on foundation your face starts to sweat with the heat outside especially my nose seems to be oily when such happens, when in general my face is far from oily.What can I do? Do I use a inter moisturizer when its summer and hot out? so my face doesn't seem like its shiny or melting? Also which products for these things are the best HELPP !
We had triple points on fragrance in both February and May and double points on skincare in January. Then, 15% off during Chic Week in April. Sephora Friends and Family is in October and then slowly VIB/Rouge/BI's are given a 20% discount in November. I've already used my annual 10% VIB renewal discount. So, here I sit in the month of July sure there has to be something coming, because that is a big time gap until the next fabulous promotion. I've been searching and see each August, Sephora has done something fun (2011 VIB weekend was every Rouge's DREAM!). Last year looks like it was a double point situation to celebrate the new BI program. Please fill in the blanks, where you see them! I'm ready to make a bigger purchase, but am holding off for some perks!
So my birthday is this month (July 25th) and I was wondering how do i retrieve my birthday gift? Do I have to wait until exactly my birthday to go to stores and collect it? Can I go this week or after my birthday?
Let me first state that I only go tanning before my yearly vacation so I do not get burnt and peel. I do however have a slight base tan from relaxing by the pool. So I suppose my question is should I go tanning prior to the beach trip so I do not burn ... and turn into a reptile!! Or after I get back to rid myself of tan lines before the wedding ( I'm a bridesmade wearing a strapless dress) What would you ladies do?!?
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.
I know it's still really early but I have a lot of ppl to get this year. (around 15+) So I want to start thinking and even buying some stuff now. Any suggestions or ideas?!?! It can be beauty products or random stuff that you think they'll enjoy!
