My points aren't showing up on my online account?
I have purchased products from Sephora in store and used my card each time. But it says my point balance is $0 and that I have no transaction history. The first purchase I made was in the US and thats when I signed up for the Beauty Insider program, but they said it was okay that I live in Canada and that it would still work when I shopped at Canadian Stores.

What do I need to do?
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 !

A return with a lecture just what I wanted.
  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?

Starving for a discount, triple points, something!
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!

Wedding in three weeks tan before or after the beach
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?!?

To make up or not?
My husband always claims he finds me most attractive, sans makeup. Yet when I wear subtle,natural looking make up, out come the compliments! I'm definitely a make up junkie but have no problem going out bare faced. So,this is a two part question: do you feel others (including men) respond to you more positively in your make up? And do you feel comfortable going out in public with a naked face?

Hey girls, Just a head up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit that's sold out IS Available
I hope I'm posting this the correct place and it's okay to post. If not, I apologize in advance.  I know I'm not the only one that's been trying to snag a Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit. It's sadly been sold out every time I've tried to get it but my Dear Husband found it today. I know I'm not allowed to say where I found it but a hint is I would look at the most obvious of places and you will find it for the same $40.price tag and for free shipping. If I'm posting this in the wrong place please let me know so I can place it in the correct place. <3 hugs <3 love < confidence <3 to all <3

What products have lasted you over a year?
  I've balked at paying the prices for some beauty products, but a few have lasted me a year. I don't mind paying the price tag knowing I may get a year out of them. Some of my year long products are urban decay setting spray and primer potion, porefessional, mac setting powder (May soon have to toss?)mac select cover concealer.

HELP!!Got upgraded to VIB.. Online it says im still beauty insider, also points arent updated
(july3rd) hey! So I went to Sephora on Friday (June 27th) and i got upgraded to VIB (YAY!!). When i got back home from my shopping trip (June30)  i went online and it still says im a Beauty Insider and the points i got from my previous visit a month ago and from this past weekend isnt showing on my profile. How do i get my points i earned from my 2 trips to sephora and upgrade my account to VIB??

The jury's still out on whether or not this Les Merveilleuses Laduree Face & Eye Color... ehm... powder is actually functional. Let's face it, who's actually going to dip a brush into this work of art?!   New Meteorites, I need you in my life now -- new pink packaging and all!   Diorsnow Fresh Cheeks Blush. Word on the street is that it will be a Nordstrom Anniversary exclusive from Dior this year!   Purely out of curiosity, what makes a brush so darn good that one can achieve VIB status by purchasing this alone?!   Share away, BTers!

I have two separate accounts, is there a way to combine them?
I was in the store the other day and used my actual beauty insider card with my purchase. I was told I had 200-and something points. However, on my online account I have 710. When I brought this up to the cashier, she told me I probably have two separate accounts. Is there anyway to combine them?
