AUGUST APPRECIATION: BEAUTY INSIDER/VIB/VIB ROUGE ?
Hi all ! I know that August is one of the best times to shop at Sephora because of the great perks, extra points and all those goodies. Has anybody heard anything about this yet? Any posters or in-store sightings? I'm so excited and we're one week away and I haven't heard anything yet! Ah !!! Doesn't 2x, 3x, or 4x (depending on membership) sound awesome? I really hope that Sephora hasn't forgotten...Hoping for bigger and better things this year, not to say that last years wasn't too shabby itself.    Let's end this with a question: Q: What was your favorite perk/part/time of August Appreciation Month?    My answer: I love the whole month, even though promos change weekly, I loved the VIB Bag w/samples and the 3x points, pretty sweet

Bad customer service today! Ugh...
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!

Anyone up for a drugstore challenge?
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

Does anyone else use "expired" makeup?
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.

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!!

Fresh Sugar Ruby Lip Treatment coming to VIB Rouge

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?!?

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

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?
