So we've talked about Dior, YSL, Guerlain a lot on here. What about Givenchy? I feel like no one ever mentions it, lol, but this new product piqued my interest: Pic from chicProfile. And I'm also eyeing this product on Sephora: http://www.sephora.com/le-prisme-blush-powder-blus h-P253313?skuId=1222918 Thoughts?
New sets are now LIVE! Summer Stash : $45 http://www.sephora.com/summerstash-P386520?skuId=1 608991 The Leading Man Fragrance Sampler : $55 http://www.sephora.com/the-leading-man-fragrance-s ampler-for-him-P385796?skuId=1605278 Lashstash To Go : $25 http://www.sephora.com/lashstash-to-go-P386518?sku Id=1608983 Now if only they would release the sun safety kit... Hint Hint!
Earlier this week I was recommended Mario Bedescu products and before I buy them I would like some feedback on how well they work. I have whiteheads like crazy. s soon as I get rid of one, three more appear. It's annoying so I would like some products to try. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to let me know. Thanks!
Woo-Hoo!!!! I've been a bit absent lately and have missed some heart parties (sorry, my bad) So I was Thrilled when I noticed that someone very near and dear to me has just passed the 2500 mark! My buddy, rdesigns, has earned 2503 hearts!! Her avatar grabbed my attention and put some kind of a spell on me - her friendship and love has warmed my heart and given me much comfort and strength. Thank you my friend. Thanks to **Sephora** for giving us this forum, were it not for bt, I would have never met some of the most special and extraordinary ladies who I am proud to call my friends. You know who you are, thank you all. ps -rdesigns - trying really hard to turn Crappy Anniversary Friday around - Thank you rdesigns for being kind enough to hit the 2500 mark today, just for me.
I'm trying to figure out what to spend my Sephora gift card on.. There's nothing I want now, but I still feel like I need to spend it I Googled but didn't find much of anything, so I'm wondering if there's anything new coming out soon that I may not have caught?
Has anyone bought something on Sephora's online website and opened it and it actually looked like someone had touched it? I recently bought the Chocolate Bar palette online because it has been sold out in the stores near me, and when I got it I opened it and it looked, to me, like someone may have already touched a few of the shades? Is that possible? Or am I just going crazy? Thank you!
Dear Sephora, You are welcome for my purchase. No I am not ready to review, and half the time I have already reviewed. I do like receiving emails from Sephora, especially rouge emails after 4 month of trying (thank you by the way). However, what is up with the review reminder emails? I don't get review reminders for all of my orders, just some of them (why??). And sometimes I get those emails AFTER I have already done a review. I am aware that Sephora email system is lacking, but while you are fixing it, can you add in a little feature where if we have already reviewed something, STOP sending us review reminders? or better yet, don't send us any review reminders. Thank you. Sigh & Facepalm, BeautyTester
So I know some ladies here use Mario Badescu products, and others have gotten samples from them*. Their lines get pretty good reviews and I really like their rosewater/aloe facial spray so I decided to try a couple more products. What did you ladies get? Any favorites? For reference, I have oily/combo in the summer and dry/combo in the winter (nowish). Orange Tonic mask - It smells like orange juice but it looks white. It is a thin clay mask, like Glamglow white or Boots Botanic but a little lotion-y instead of watery. It's a soft mask and you can feel a gentle tightening as it dries. It rinse off ok but....doesn't leave me with a super clean feeling like Origins charcoal that I use.... Strawberry Face scrub - It smells like strawberry gum, and the scrub is basically a light pink cream with sparse amounts of strawberry seeds. It reminds me of Origins Modern Friction, altho I prefer thick paste of grains rather than cream/watery solution with sparse grains. Enzyme Cleansing gel - It's non-foaming gel cleanser, kind of like Anthony Logistic glycolic, with a very mild pleasant scent. After rinsing, my skin felt clean and comfortable. It does cleanse off makeup but you have to rub it in for at least 10-20 seconds (tested with UD eyeliner, powder eyeshadow and KVD lipstick) Special Cucumber lotion - It reminds me of Clinique toner 2 (with an even shorter ingredients list). Both have a astrigent scent, refreshing and leaving no residue on the skin. Clinique toner 2 does dry my cheeks out in the winter and this didn't. This also didn't sting even when my skin is a bit sensitive after a peel. I might get this for next summer..... Hyaluronic Eye cream - It's a normal cream, not lightweight and not heavy. There's absolutely no scent and it does not irritate even around lash line. A great basic eye cream for sensitive eyes and, pretty much all skin types unless you are super oily or super dry. Collagen Moisturizer SPF15 - scentless, a lightweight cream that sinks in easily. It's perfect for combo/normal skin and I would imagine this is good for sensitive skin. Nothing super fantastic about it but very nice. Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater - this is actually the first thing I brought from the brand. I like the simple natural ingredients list. Very mild rose scent and feels just like water on the skin. In addition to use on skin it's great for taming my static-y hair in the winter. They are a pretty natural brand with simple ingredients list, which I like. I'm not a fan of the mask and scrub. The eye cream and moisturizer are good but nothing fancy (but then again, they also don't cost $50 per oz or something). I'm going to purchase a full size cucumber toner and the drying cream to try next time (after my wallet recovers from all the Sephora holiday goodies). *Mario Badescu will mail you free samples if you fill out the skincare survey on their website. It doesn't always work, so make an account, do the survey, maybe even put the products in your basket and wait. If you don't get an email within the week then try again?
So I've been wanting to try Sigma brushes for a while and just couldn't bring myself to spend so much on brushes. Then I saw that Jaclyn Hill was having her top 7 brushes in set for $90. So I did it. Yes, I bought the brushes! I am super excited for it to arrive. Anyone else order it? Any feed back on the brushes that are included in the set? *F80 Flat Kabuki *F86 Tapered Kabuki *F35 Tapered Highlighter *E55 Eye Shading *E25 Blending *E40 Tapered Blending *E30 Pencil
I ordered the Sephora Pro Allover Powder Brush #61 and received it today, only to notice a striking similarity to the Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush. Does anyone have both? I really don't want to use the Sephora brand brush just to test it because then I'll feel terrible about returning it, but I also don't want to keep it if the Tarte brush is identical. If you've ever been in a similar situation, what did you do about it? Keep both brushes even if they're complete dupes? Return the new one? Halp!
I have a red dress in the shade of red in the picture. I have a red lipstick, but I'm open to other good looking colors. Also, any tips on my eyes and cheeks, or overall face would be appreciated. BTW, I'm going for a Valentine's day look.

Is there additional specific information available for these two GlamGlow products? -Glamglow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask (black jar) -Glamglow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment (white jar) I have read all information on the individual product pages but still am unsure of the answers to these questions: -How do these 2 products differ? -Does each perform a unique function? -Is one better suited for certain skin types? -Is it useful to own both, or will one suffice?
Pardon me if this has already been posted! But...there are two new Sephora Favorites up! One is mini mascaras that come with a certificate to redeem a full sized one and the other is Summer Favorites. I'm really digging the Summer Favroites one, especially the Nars and Deborah Lippman Mermaid Polish. Plus I've been wanting to try the cheek gelee and lip tar....oh it's all pretty good! Hello, you gorgeous temptation! On a side note: Hoping the Summer Safety Kit will be out soon! Does anyone know anything regarding that? http://www.sephora.com/lashstash-to-go-P386518 http://www.sephora.com/summerstash-P386520?skuId=1 608991
Mixed Sephora experience... Evidently I do have a love/hate relationship with my Sephora store. I've made a habit out of going on the weekends and evenings, since that's when the MUA whom I love, the Manager who is awesome, and a few other stellars work. This morning, I was running errands so complete dressed down in chucks, Levi's, t, cardi and scarf. My errand at Sephora included a returning one item and purchasing a few gifts. Guess what? Totally ignored. So I bumbled around trying to get the things on my list with no help, but one eye-roll, and then I met Michael. OMG I love him!!! We bonded over our 80s childhoods and our sadness over MAC becoming lackluster and he totally made my day by telling me I'd made his. Why so inconsistent? There were about as many MUA/SAs at the store as customers, and I'd see clumps of SAs in an aisle chatting away ... just left me irritated. The girl with whom I checked out was abrupt, then got quite and sweet once she saw I was rouge. Which kind of pissed me off. Again, shouldn't matter if I'm a first-time customer or a long-standing Rouge, customer service should be consistent and good. If I wasn't going for gifts (have to say, love the fragrance samplers) and MUFE, I would have turned around and gone to Nordstrom's. Whenever I go there, they make me feel welcome. They're not all over me, but I'm definitely not ignored. Oh, and they give me samples, too. Guess how many samples I got after dropping close to $200. Go on, guess. None.
I started using the korres milk cleanser about 6 months ago, and fell in love with this product! I literally did not have one pimple, or any skin concerns while using it. I then went into multiple Sephora's and they are no longer carrying korres!! Living in Canada, most websites I found that do carry it will unfortunately not ship outside of the U.S. I am seriously so sad this amazing line is not being carried anymore! I recently bought Caudalie milk cleanser (suggested by an employee) and am not super satisfied with it.. It almost feels like my skin is not completely clean! Does anyone have any suggestions on a new, preferably milky face wash!? Anddddd.. how is purity face wash!? P.s I have sensitive skin
I get the feeling that 70% of the reviews on Sephora.com are fake-- posted by the product distrubutor. I always click on the user and see if they've reviewed other items or not.. I mean, almost every product has at least 4 stars total. That seems a little unlikely. It bothers me.... Luckily they have a great return policy so you can try things out yourself. Thoughts?
So... I don't know if everyone's aware of this, my apologies if you already all know, but I thought it might be a good tip for those who are Canadian and don't know about this! When you go on to JM website, her products are actually cheaper than buying it at Sephora! (If you're a Canadian) For example, if you were to purchase 1.7 oz JM argan oil, it's $58 CND at Sephora; but if you go on to JM website, it's $48 USD. The currency is 0.91 CND/1 USD, so even with that, your JM argan oil is $52 CND... Also, they shipping is free if your total is over $25 USD. Although they don't have too many selections as much as Sephora - which seems a bit odd to me, why does an official website has less selection than Sephora? - If you have staple items that you buy all the time, it'd be better to buy at JM official website. they have great promo codes too, right now they have 22% off of all products till April 22 if you use the code "Earth22,", so it's even better!
Didn't see this online yet, but I walk into the store and saw "Meet your Match" that has 3 lip products and 3 nail polishes. $25. Sooo pretty.
