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!!
Hey bt'ers. I'm looking to invest in a mirror to do my makeup. Sadly I currently hold up a hand held one with one hand and my tools or makeup products being applied in the other. Needless to say my arm gets tired lol and I feel my makeup is never good as it can be. What are your thoughts on the simple Human Mirror and what size do you suggest for doing full face makeup daily. Are they worth the investment?. Thanks lovelys
I was so stoked to see that these beautiful 8 palettes would be released Sephora online (including Canada's website)! I was wondering what your thoughts on the palettes were and if you know the general release date for these would be. Also, if you had any available swatches to show that would be great as well.
I created a thread to help, but it does not appear on the main page (so the people I wanted to help will not see it). Trying again to get it on the main page.

I just wanted to hear some feedback on people who purchased this product because I purchased mine about 2 weeks ago and ive reached for it maybe like 2x. On those 2x I felt like there was no color pay off from the orangy and pinky color pans. Has anybody else had the same issue because I have literally dug my brush wich is the one that was included with the trio blush but even that does not help. If thats thecissue then I might return it :\
So I am $200 from vib rouge, if I don't make it by the end of this year (like 1 day away) will I have to spend $1000 all over next year again or will my $200 remain the same? hope this made some sort of sense lol
For Christmas I received a fragrance sampler from sephora. I know im supposed to pick the one I like and receive full size, but I tried and do not like any of the scents. Is there any way I could get another scent or do I just need to pick one of the options?
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
I have always loved the idea of face masks since I was a girl, but only experienced good ones from the free samples on here. So what do you guys think? What's the best on here to buy? Oh and this is random, but I've been trying birchbox, and I'm not sure if I like it or not. Any opinions or experiences with birchbox? I'm not trying to advertise it, I'm really not sure if I like it. This one I got I only liked one or two things. And I get so many freebies on here....
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?
I know a lot of people have this problem. It's those hideous, hellacious, annoying "11's"!! I can see them forming and it's not attractive! Sometimes, if I'm in pain and am squishing my forehead, my Mother will actually Smack Me right between the eyes! Shocking, but it does help remind me to try to relax that area. Headaches also cause the pain/squishy/squinty "11" making things - and I try to massage that area & through the brow bone area very lightly, sometimes it helps it feel better. Anyone have some ideas about what works best alone and under makeup (likely 2 different products) I don't want to spend an insane amount of $$,.Hopefully I'll get lucky and keep it under $100.00 or find it in a kit where I can try other products as well. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated. If I'm really lucky, maybe I can find a company that would supply some generous samples. Cause 2015 is gonna be a sad, less Sephora year. (and less Nordies, Macy's etc. etc.) How about those "Frownies"? Anyone have any experience with them? Do they do anything and how do they actually work? Thanks everyone. Strange..... I keep hearing the Toys-R-Us theme......"I don't wanna grow up......."
I don't know if this has ever been suggested before (I'm fairly new here) but I really respect a lot of the BT recommendations (such as this post: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Antiaging/Needles- No-More/td-p/1819451) and wish there was a section on the forum dedicated to them or with links to them. Considering Sephora invests the time and money to ship these products out to reviewers, I think it would only benefit them to have links on their main page to such reviews. Because the reviews are coming from BTers, I consider them really honest feedback and a true reflection from users who have a lot of expert knowledge and history with makeup and beauty.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I wondered though if anyone had any details about a "Secret Sale" that I saw mentioned in a thread (can't find the thread) It mentioned that some things are on sale and some are not and that you could roll over products to get $$ or go look at your 'Love List'. Can anyone give me any specifics about it? Cause 'kssweetheart' didn't do Aaaaaaamy shopping all weekend long and is really starting to feel the extreme need to scratch that itch! Thanks for any info you can provide. Hope everyone has a nice, mellow evening and has sweet dreams of Cyber Monday deals and all good things - shopping related and otherwise.. I hope all of your good dreams come true too.
Hello I'm new on here but have been buying a lot through sephora the past year. Like thousands and I probably shouldn't have considering I am a server and mom lol but whatever it makes me feel good. Anyways, I'm afraid I overdid it and things will expire. I have lots of lip tar and lip products, but the tar worries me most. I also worry about my glitter mascara and eyeliner, and basically whatever. Sometimes I wonder if freezing would help? I also worry about my numerous eyeshadow primers and liquid eyeliners...but not all is opened, so does that help? I'm sure you guys have advice plus more...please Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I don't know if this idea has been posted before. I looked through the archives with no luck. One feature I would love to see on BT would be an easy way to find a listing of the mods and who is currently online. There are times when I need help with something that is more urgent than at other times and would like a way to find a mod quickly. Some issues I don't mind waiting 24-48 hours+ to get a response about, but others I would prefer a faster response. I know if there is something really important I can call the VIB Rouge line, so I am aware of that. Anywho, I think this would be a cool feature. Plus I wouldn't feel like I'm bombarding the same mods over and over again because they are the ones I know.
The quality of the tote bags given out each year is decreasing. I don't like to waste, I love reusing things! Honestly I don't want them at all if they aren't sturdy enough to last. This years version is pitiful... The one from a few years ago with black and white stripes was so sturdy I use it as purse sometimes! The recent ones are cheaper and thinner and fall apart. That is all - ^^ This was the best imo
I am looking for a daily face mask. I have heard and read that daily face masks should be the never-miss morning beauty routine. I'm in my mid-twenties, and I would like to start this now. I currently use Laura Mercier for cleanser, moisturizer, and tinted moisturizer, but as far as I know that brand does not produce masks. I'm looking for a mask that I can use daily (not just once or twice a week). Any advice?
Ok! So...does it start Wed or Thurs? Ive heard both! AND...since it's a sale, if i order online, will i automatically get the 20 percent off and canuse a promo code for a promo iI've been eyeing or is it a "not REALLY a sale because we have to use a promo to get the 20 percent off so that knocks out my promo code I've been eyeing?? I hope my questions make sense! TIA!
Hi, so, Christmas is just around the corner and I want to buy my mum a really nice gift. I have $40 to spend on her. She's a person that likes more of the natural tone kind of makeup. So, if you have any ideas of what I should get her, then that would be really great! Thank you!
Wouldn't it be nice if we actually got something free instead of having to purchase something to get something free? Dear Sephora, please consider contests where the winners just get free stuff. Thank you.
OK....So here the eyes are. As you can see they need major help. Please do not remind me that I would look so much younger "If you would only lose weight" I do realize that but it took awhile to get this way, so...well you know the rest!. now, on to my problematic eyes. Basically they look 47. I'm supposed to have good genes!! At my age my mom looked 30 and her eyes were beautiful!! Not mine. Bottom lids are puffy with dark circles. No concealer has helped much. Top lids are horrible! Can't even see my shadow on the lid cuz the skin above my eyes is very saggy. My mom had this happen when she was 62 and she almost couldn't see. She had them lifted and her eyes look 25!! I am hoping to find something that will firm this area and lift it up some, and at the same time get rid of the circles and hopefully get rid of the puffiness. Ok, I can live with a bit of the circles but NOT the puffy or the saggy!! thanks and sorry so long!!
Hi sephora, I seem to remember make up stations stocked with disposable tissue and facial cotton, lip, eye and brow brushes, makeup removers, a jar of makeup brushes, water spritz, hand sanitizer and etc. All complimentary and meant for it to draw in people to try makeup so as to make it easier for people to try new thing and remove makeup which eventually will become a sale and a repeat customer if they like what sephora has to offer. Sadly this hygiene and hospitality standard has fallen today at Sephora flagship store in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Starhill gallery (18 oct 2014). Dirty tissues all over the makeup stations, no hand sanitizer, no disposable brushes to try on eye shadows and blushes, no bins to dispose used tissues. The standard has gone from 10 to 1. It is unhygienic, disgusting and I fled to MAC that day. I've been a loyal sephora fan since it's 1st store in Singapore, I never think i would go back to MAC but today it happened because Sephora is very unsanitary! With the price point and the glamorous locations that you have positioned yourself, it has not meet the expected standard. Truly disappointed. Yours truly black card no. 6501000246756
Hi BT So I recently ordered this because I am on a mission to find some amazing brushes that DON'T shed all over my face or itch! This set was a good price so I decided to pick one up. I haven't used them yet -- still need to wash them, but they seem nice, VERY dense. The con tourist one is this kit also sold me because I would like to compare it to my Nars ITA. Although I do love my real techniques, I was wondering what you all thought about the tarte brushes? http://www.sephora.com/brushed-with-destiny-makeup -brush-set-P388934?skuId=1633999 <3
Hi, I thought it would be cool to give BTer's and/or Insiders the ability to curate their monthly favorites lists. We can share them with others or just have them sitting on our profiles so people can see what we like that month if they are interested in learning more about us. We could also have a link which shows everyone's list and it would give both buyers and vendors, the ability to see what people are currently loving, and whether those recommendations have spurred others to try those items. Just a thought. I like to see what my fellow makeup lovers and what beauty guru's are currently loving so i can see if thats something I want to try.
