Unicorn Wanted and Sightings
Hi everyone,    Since there are many LE items or discontinued items that we search for, I wanted to know if there is any interest in maintaining a thread to post any unicorns we stumble upon and list where it can be found so others can try to find these items that they are looking for. I thought this might be useful as I found a few items on my trip and also found it extremely helpful when a fellow BT member posted about the availability of Tom Ford's Nude Dip on Selfridges a couple of months ago so that a few of us could finally order this LE item.  I also thought that if there are LE items that people are looking for, they could PM me and I could add it to the main thread so that others would know what others may be looking for. I could update the Found Unicorns on the main post weekly. Looking for your thoughts, suggestions? This would be strictly for limited edition items and discontinued items. Please include location, date found, and price if it is selling for less or more than regular retail price. Thanks in advance!   Wanted Unicorns:   Tom Ford Emerald Lust (Poisonivy9)   coty marsala blush palette (MK89)   Divergent set (ImHisAngel)   Dior My Lady Blush in 001 and 006 (jellybean917)   Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous (Rhiannon1419)   Guerlain Cruel Gardenia (Rhiannon1419)   ABH amrezy palette ( minibux, BeautyIsPassion)   MAC True Romantic Blush and MAC Petal Point blush (Javadoo)   Nars Douceur blush: (bea0t, Ivyxox)   Tom Ford Burnished Amber, Violet Dusk Eyeshadow Quads (KateLovesYSL)   MAC Proenza Schouler Ocean City Coral blush ( notcreative)   Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros (minibux)   Chanel Ombre Contraste Sculpting Veil in Notorious (minibux,KateLovesYSL)   Tom Ford She Wolf (lipstick4soul)   Tom Ford Blush in Narcissist (KateLovesYSL)

just 1000 points = $50 gift card?
So I just had an instore purchase and the girl ringing up my purchase saw my points and asked if I had heard about this reward. It was a free makeup application, bag of delux samples. and $50 gift card for 1000 points. Now of course this excited me so i went home and looked at the rewards boutique. I couldn't find it. Is this a real thing? did I miss it? or was the girl just playing with me?

How about easter egg hunt at Sephora.com
We all are pretty disappointed about no good promos lately, how about easter egg hunt promo? I feel it is a good idea, many of us didn't purchase from sephora these days, if such a game is on, I will purchase for sure. What say BTers?

Experience with color iq
Hello Ladies,   I wanted to ask if you guys got your color iq matched and how does it compare to the real life foundation shades you use. I got matched the other day. The system suggested several foundations. While the color for MUFE was pretty good, but the one for Naked Skin was too dark. Share your experiences.

Irritated with recent store events
Until I found Sephora I never really thought about getting samples for products ..  I simply bought the  items that I really believed would work for me and ended up with drawers and drawers of un -useable cosmetics and skin care .  Since I have started shopping at Sephora I almost always try before I buy anything new to me .  A case in point would be Roller Lash , I just used any old mascara, I figured they were mostly the same .  After trying Roller Lash I could not wait to buy a full sized tube. The truth is I never would have ever purchased a Roller Lash if I had not received the deluxe sample at Sephora.      I try to go to many of the smallish events at the local Sephora store and I usually spend about 25-50$ USD  when I do .  I am there to learn about new things and possibly buy more goodies for myself and also receive a sample or two  to make me want to come back and buy more things . I received an email regarding an event today at SiJCP. The email stated to come and try the new KatVonD palette and also receive a free gift.   When I got to the event I am told by the SA that in order to receive the FREE gift I need to buy the palette.   As it turned out the palette was really not a good fit  for me  .     I am not generally one to complain about a free gift , but in this case I felt the email was misleading and it is not the first time this has happened at that certain Sephora.   I often go into sephora to try new make up colors and formulas , and if i like them I will buy them , if I'm not sure I might ask for a sample ,but the truth is I could have gone into that store on a day that was not pouring down rain to see if those colors worked for me .   If they had advertised something else, for example to come and try that palette ALL week ( or whenever ) but if you come in on a certain day AND purchase it then you get whatever it is they are giving away , it would have been more accurate . I am wondering if there is any actual policy about these evnts or not , in this case it feels as though that one particular store just sort of makes things up  as they go along

Step aside promos... Some positive vibes here
I'm sure just as many of you are, I'm grateful and happy to pick a nice promo along with my purchase when there's one I want and I qualify. Since the promos haven't sparked so much enthusiasm, I'm looking forward to what I think is coming up next... That's the pick 5 samples! Last year, sephora had an option to pick 5 luxe samples- a great way to try those luxe products before we buy! I'm hoping this year they will offer something similar.    After the pick 5 samples is Chic Week!!! So here's to good vibes and more shopping!!! There's still plenty of promo codes out there in the meantime and probab a few more to come. But here's to some other ways sephora keeps my skincare/makeup drawers ready for more!

skin care suggestions please
I am 27 with combination skin, oily t- zone and very dry cheeks. My major concerns are uneven skin tone, pigmentation around mouth, dry patches on cheeks and one or two acne marks. Currently my skin care routine is, Morning- algenist serum and moisturizing cream and Josie maran sunscreen.  Night- ole henriksen serum and ole henriksen invigorating gel and some times taste maracuja oil. Weekly once glamglow youthmud, powermud and thirst mud.   I am bored of my serum and cream, I am using them daily from 1 year. Suggest me some good skincare.

I just thought it was a fun idea and hopefully y'all will get in the jam! here are a few of my favorite instagram beauty pics. if y'all would like to follow me my instagram is @londonlover101_   cant wait to hear and see y'all!     peace and love,skye <3   p.s please comment if you have an instagram or website dedicated to beauty,fashion,food or more, I would love to hear!

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.
