False advertising by Sephora really grinds my gears.
I'm on the Sephora Facebook page and notice they have a Bumble and Bumble promo for FB Fan Friday.  Two mini bottles of shampoo and conditioner plus a little pouch to hold it.  Cute, right?   Then I read some of the comments:     ::record stops::   You're telling me you're "sorry that the image looks larger than what is included"?  I think what Sephora meant to say was, "Sorry the image is completely different from what you're getting."  This isn't a case of you getting a 1.0 oz bottle instead of a 2.0 oz bottle.  This is a case of you getting two foil packets over a 2.0 oz bottle. HUGE discrepancy, highly unprofessional, unethical, and super illegal.   That's like seeing a picture of a real car on craigslist and getting a Hot Wheels car instead!   Just to reiterate, what Sephora is advertising is this:   And what you're getting is this:   Sephora is really sorry that the image seems bigger in the picture though!

NARS Body Glow.. Hot or Not?
I have been seeing mixed reviews about this product.. Some people are saying it transfers onto clothing others say it dries up in the bottle fast... But it looks like such a fun product I want it to be great haha.. Was wondering if anyone has some experience with the product that can talk me out or preferably in to buying it.

How to link my Sephora beauty insider card with my account
I need help linking my beauty insider card that I just got today in-store at Sephora. The lady who gave me the card only asked for my name and last name. I made a sephora account today, since I thought I could link my card to my sephora account online but am having trouble doing so. Any help would be nice!

Why doesn't Sephora have a reviewer incentive program?
I think it would cool if the more we review and talk on here than the better chances of us getting free samples, testers or even full sized products. Don't get me wrong I love the VIB program but I think this would be a neat way to improve it. They could even give you points for reviewing like 1 review = 10 points. If you do 10 reviews than you get a free 100 point perk. What do you think???

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation reviews needed.
I realllly want to love the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation but I think I might have to take it back I have worn it twice with 2 different primers and setting powder and each time within a few hours it is really broken up and moving around.  It is not a horrible foundation but I don't feel like I should keep it if I don't really like it... I'm debating with myself though because I still really want to love it :/ don't know if that makes any sense lol.. What are your thoughts and opinions about this Nars Lumi Foundation? Do you guys think I should take it back? ..  As you can probably tell I'm fighting with myself over this.

Beauty profile "titles"
Hey I'm not sure if this question is answered anywhere but I've tried looking for it with no luck. What determines those titles that everyone has like "SCENE QUEEN" or "BEAUTY BUFF" or "SPECIAL GUEST"... what makes anyone any of those? I was something like 'SCENE QUEEN" once and now I'm a "BEAUTY RESIDENT"... There are so many titles that I don't know which is better or worse per se. Is it simply the number of questions you answer? Or what? Why isn't there some kind of page which lists all of the titles and what they mean because they seem kind of random to me.

WELLS FARGO Rewards Credit Card and 5% using the Earn More Mall Savings Program
I didn't know where to post this but with Chic Week coming up - or if you have a Wells Fargo Rewards Credit Card... but the Earn More Mall Rewards Program will earn you 5% back on your WF CC on Sephora purchases.   I am not sure how long they will be offering 5% but I have gotten the 5% rewards on my last two purchases and pray it stays that way until after Chic week.   You have to log into your WF account and access Sephora through the Earn More Mall website if you are ordering online. You can also "Activate" Sephora as one of your retailers so when you shop in store - and use your WF Rewards credit card, you'll still get the 5% points.   I apologize if this is not appropriate for this Board but I hope there are a few others that can take advantage of the Earn More Mall points while they are being offered.

Anastasia Beverly Hills new products
Hi! This is my first post... I don't know how it works, I'm an entirely newbie. But I'm searching for some support here, maybe I could find someone that lived my current situation. My english is poor too but I try hard to express myself in the correct way... I'm so upset. I will really appreciate that Anastasia Beverly Hills bring to Sephora her new products (Contour Cream Kit and Liquid Lipsticks) If it happens I will be glad. These items are available exclusively at Macy's and Anastasia's website. Macy's doesn't ship to P.O. Boxes address (that sucks) and the customer service at Anastasia's website is poor. I paid for 2 days shipping and placed my order the past thursday and I still don't have a tracking number. I love how fast and efficient is the Sephora's customer service team and the shipment method. I always buy at Sephora all I can for that reason. I order from here my dipbrow and contour powder kit and another things of the brand. Do you, guys, placed orders at Anastasia Websites? Can you explain me how it works? because I call them, write them and nothing happens. I hope the brand have in mind bring to Sephora its new products...

ulta vs sephora brushes
So, I am looking to add to my brush collection and I have been eyeing the IT Brushes from Ulta a lot, but then I was thinking about how obviously Sephora carries brushes too (Sephora Brand) LOL Anyways, I was looking for some opinions on which brushes you like better? Do you think the brushes are a hit or a miss depending on which brush you get? Do you think either brand is a rip off and you don't get what you pay for? Or do you think they are fairly priced and great quality for the price? Do you think I should snag up some Ulta brushes since I have a coupon or should I wait and get some Spehora brushes during Chic week at Sephora? Any opinions/comments would be greatly appreciated!!

On those 2x I felt like there was no color pay off from the orangy and pinky color pans.

NEW SKIN ROUTINE! Which do you suggest?
Alright Sephora friends, I am currently looking for a complete NEW skin care routine! My main goal is to reverse my mild post acne spots, discolorations, & slight scarring as well as maintain a fresh, smooth, radiant complexion after I fix my main concern. I have done some research and narrowed it down to the brightening Murad line (the Orange one) then I was going to add the post acne marks serum if necessary, Kiehls which I know Sephora doesn't sell (Oops!) and another non-Sephora brand is Roden and Fields and the Unblemish routine. Does anyone have reccomendations that would be helpful? I've searched high and low and haven't been able to find a fit for my skin. Please help! Thanks in advance

How the heck do you keep track of things on BT?
Okay, we all know there's room for improvement in the features department of BT. So given that none of us actually have the power to change anything, how do you keep track of things? I used to think I was just too much of a newb to understand the ins and outs of BT, but now that I've been here for a while, I realize that nothing has really changed and it still feels like a bit of a clusterF to keep track of responses and comments/mentions intended for a specific user.     Do you subscribe to threads? Do you track responses to your own posts through your list of activity in your profile? Do you just rely on PMs?    What's your method to the madness?
