Anyone interested in another traveling box?!
BOX IS FULL, LIST IS CLOSED!   I'm moving out of state mid-Jan and really would like to unload my entire makeup talk.com swap list so I don't have to take it/pack it!  I'd prefer to start the box due to that - would any one be interested in getting another traveling box going!     posting the rules (if agreed to) from another swap box:   This box is open for US shipping only. The shipping becomes more expensive for Canada, and takes longer due to border checks.   1. Pick Your Number (first to a number gets it) 2. Start collecting your beauty goodies 3. Read through the Rules below to know what is allowed & what is not Allowed: ☆ High-End products and items you got from subscription boxes (please keep drugstore items to a minimum- MAX of 2 drugstore items per person) a few samples are ok too. ☆ All opened items must be labeled ("swatched", "opened", "tried/used"…) ☆ Fragrance if it's in a spray bottle (can be 1/2 used too) & must be wrapped ☆ Nail polish must be tightly closed & bubble wrapped or in a box ☆ Makeup as long as you've cleaned it with alcohol & it doesn't have big fingerprint marks/dents in it ☆ Mascara if it's sealed/ brand new never used ☆ Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags/Empty Jars as long as they are clean ☆ Anything that is sealed ☆ Skin care items in tubes & bottles Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened ☆ Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won't leak or break & ruin everything else ☆ Keep non beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). ☆ every item needs to be inside a plastic bag/ziplock Not Allowed: ☹ Pre-made samples ☹ Taking more than you put in. Keep the Value of items equal ☹ Heavily used items (except for perfume) ☹ Swatching items in the box ☹ Keeping the box for more than 3 days. (USPS does home pickup, so no EXCUSES! ) If you are traveling or something comes up, please let us know ASAP so we can move you on the list. Rules -don't keep the box for more than a few days (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn) -don't put in anything unsanitary -send your address to the person above you -replace what you took with something as nice or nicer -minimal drugstore items (2 or so per person) -don't take all of one kind of item, for example, if there are 3 of one perfume, take only 1 so that others will have a chance to try them -post in a picture and/or text what you took and left (picture AND written description preferred) -package things carefully and put things in ziplock bags -have fun, try some things you haven't tried before -if you think there is a need for more rules, post a reply to this ☆ NO RESERVE ☆ ☆ No Swatching items from the box ☆ UNLESS sealed NO: NOTHING THAT CAN'T BE CLEANED or SANITIZED   1. mariahk83  - 9405 5036 9930 0189 9842 13 2. spacesuit - 9505 5000 1293 4008 0002 32 shipped 1/8 3. killahbabe - 9405509699938116448976 shipped 1/13 4. tigrelili - 9405509699939597212063 shipped 1/22 5. ireneh - 9405509699937299742086 shipped 2/04 6. dasies121 - 9405903699300121845464 shipped 2/08 7. edalaide1 - 9405909699937325250231 shipped 2/13 8. yazmin -9114901159815764939820 shipped 2/20 9. kraezilyunique - 9405903699300130522837 2/24 10. mychoi - 9114901189866921270639 2/28 11. spoiledbrat - mailed and rec'd by OKLady 12. oklady2013 13. carenganda21 - items sent and rec'd separately. 14. kimchikween 15. lizie  16. person11 17. desertrose0706   I'll gladly donate any unwanted items once the box makes it back to me, if anyone knows of a good place to do so in the San Antonio area, let me know (i'll be too new to the area to know much!!)   PLEASE PM THE PERSON PRIOR TO YOU WITH YOUR NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS!

Beauty Basics - What would you consider must have for skincare and makeup
I had a friend ask me what I would consider basics for beauty and skincare as she is just starting out in the beauty world and is looking to get a regimen going. However being the beauty junkie that I am I am trying to narrow down a list for her. So what would you consider Cosmetic and Skincare basics?

Mia Clarisonic? I need some opinions on what you think!
Hi everyone!   Okay so I recently visited my Sephora store, and I asked about a Acne cleanser or spot treatment. And the lady who attended to me gave me a sample of Peter Thomas Roth sulfur masque. Then she asked if I ever used a Clarisonic. I never did, or even thought about getting one. She went on to talk about how she highly recommends it to everyone, and it made me think I should invest in one! I do have acne prone skin..mostly hormonal breakouts. She said it would really help get my skin clean and free of any dirt/makeup laying on my skin after cleansing/exfoliating.  i know you need to replace the brush after so long too.  I am on the outs on getting one, I just need some input on what you guys think?? Do you think its a good investment?

PSA: Sephora is updating their return policy
I was in Sephora today and my cashier let me know that they will be updating their return policy. I don't know whether this is Canada-only and when it will take effect.   Whenever the new policy takes effect, when you return items without a receipt you will have to do it as an exchange only. No more store credit. I asked her what happens if the sum of the items you are exchanging for does not match the original price of the item you are exchanging, and she said that it pretty much has to be a perfect straight exchange, otherwise its going to be our loss.   So, either exchange for the same sum, or for something more expensive.    I really don't understand Sephora's beef with their own gift cards (/store credit). If I'm getting store credit, of course I'm going to be spending that money on Sephora, whether it's going to be at that same moment, or in a week or two.

To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!
I don't think I've ever spent my points since I became a Beauty Insider. I have more points that I'd like to admit, but I can't bring myself to spend them because of the "what if something better comes out" idea...   Anyhow, do you guys save or spend your points? Anything you're saving up for or anything you've spent your points on that you'd like to share?   Thanks for your thoughts!       Sidenote: This is my first question so forgive me if I posted in the wrong section/this question was already asked!

Have you been banned from returning items to Sephora?
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.

Is there a maximum amount of points you can accumulate in your account?
I did all my Christmas shopping for my friends and family during the 4x the points event. I was also on a low buy for the last two months ( 6 orders only in 2 months!) so needless to say I ended up wanting more and more things as the week long Surge promotion was on. And I kept seeing more things I could buy my friends and family as gifts. Needless to say I went from about 5400 points to 11398.  Psince I am from Canada, the points were not updated correctly to reflect the difference in US and CAN prices.so I had made a spreadsheet that I tracked all my purchases to know what I was buying for whom so I could just gift wrap the box it's shipped in and to keep track of the points that would need to be added to my account. So I sent in emails with the spreadsheet on 3 days to show the missing points for purchases made Augb4,5,6. It took a long time to get a response back and when I finally got a response back about purchases made on Aug 4, they did not multiply by 4 since I was Rouge. This was quickly rectified when I called the Rouge line. Then I still had not received a response about my email about purchases made on aug 5. I did get an email about purchases made on Aug 6 but it was again wrong. When I called the Rouge line again, she wasn't as helpful and questioned why I had made soo many orders. I told her they were mostly Christmas gifts and she asked if they were going to different addresses. I said no, I'm going to mail them myself..it's August, I'm NOT going to be sending out Christmas gifts right now. also, the whole point of customer appreciation week or month and the 4x the points promotion was to encourage spending! On top of all of the things that went in and out of the sale section that made us have to stalk the sale page.  Anyways, I told her I had all the order numbers and the price difference and would gladly walk through each one with her but she said she would look it up herself and email me back no later than last night. Well, that call was made at noonish yesterday and by noon today I still did not get a reply back. In total, I needed 591 points updated for purchases made Aug 4,5,6,7,10.  When I called the Rouge line today, the representative told me he'd be happy to apply my points but when he went to apply them he said he couldn't because I had too many points. He said I would need to spend points before he would add the 591 points. I said that I was saving for a high point perk for next year and he just kept telling me to use 500 pts on the Hourglass point perk even though I said the only Hourglass product I use was the powders and the blush. So he said he would make a note that once I spend points, then the missing points would be added.  Ii have never heard of there being a limit as to how many points we can have in our account... And it seems counter intuitive since sephora encourages us to save points for the 10k and 5 k perks.    My daughter was disappointed that we missed out on the 5 k rewards this time since we didn't get an email until 11:55 am and all the good rewards were already gone. We're hoping to be luckier next year and get a trip or one of the other high point rewards.    So, can a mod or someone please let me know if there is a limit. I don't like how Canadians are always having one problem after another with sephora. I took my time to email and call multiple times and get no response or the weirdest response ever. Thank you
