I've never used anything from them before but then I saw they were having that huge sale so I snagged some items up. Anyone know why their whole line is on sale? Are they rebranding? I'm afraid I'll really like the products haha.

I can't keep up with all of these LE releases and had no idea Indiscretion would disappear before I could order. Is this available in store? At another retailer?

I don't mean expensive ones like AmorePacific but more like from the inexpensive brands Etude House, Skin Food, Face Shop, Innisfree, Leneige, Nature Republic etc.   I've tried and likes: - Etude House wonderpore toner - Skin Food peach sake pore serum - erm, currently working my way through 70+ sheet masks from brands above (plus My Beauty Diary and Tony Moly)   So aside from those, any favorite scrubs, masks, treatment, moisturizer etc?

Do you find that there is a difference between the different colors of beauty blenders? Which do you recommend? Also do you prefer the solid or liquid cleanser, or another cleanser all together?

Some others and I were talking about Ardency Inn the other day on the WAYWT thread, so I thought I'd start a thread for the brand where you can add swatches, ask questions, and give opinions.

I was excited to place an order with using the new "Flash-2-Day" service I've purchased, since I needed a new foundation for an event for this weekend.   But to my unpleasant surprise, the so called "promised" delivery date got changed after I placed the order for no reason! That was not what I was expecting and I could have just planned something else if I knew it would arrive late. I followed all the rules, the order was definitely placed before 3 pm (EST) , so I'm not sure why this happened and was very disappointed. Weather was great, so definitely not due to that reason. This beats out the purpose of getting the new Flash 2 Day service and feels like it's not guaranteed even if you follow all the rules.   The worst thing is customer service only replied back with scripted response and said I should have placed the order before 12pm if I wanted it shipped on time. WHAT?! The site clearly said order by 3pm on the advertisement when you click on "Flash 2 Day Shipping" (example: have it arrive on a Friday when you place an order on Wednesday by 3pm)   Even though Flash 2 Day Shipping is only $10 for a year, just lower your expectation. Low price for low commitment on Sephora's end it looks like. Better off buying from the store or else where if you need it fast and on time.

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.

So I know that you are only supposed to keep your BB for 2-3 months before replacing it, but I find it kind of ridiculous to spend close to $100 a year on a sponge. Do you keep your Beauty Blender for longer ? If so, what do you do to extend its life?

Hi,   I'm 25 years old and have occasional acne breakouts but I also have a lot of blemishes and redness. I'm looking for a good exfoliator and good make up (foundation, press powder, concealer, bb or cc ..etc..) for maximum coverage. I cannot leave the house without putting make up on due to the redness and blemishes. I have combination skin. Too dry after I wash my face and put make up on but gets oily throughout the day. I'm also looking for maximum coverage make up that won't sweat off when I'm in the sun all day (going to Florida in a month and don't want my face "melting" off LOL. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. There are so many different brands out there I can't ever choose.    Thank you,   AZ

I just used up what was left of my philosophy microdelivery peel , which, btw, sephora no longer sells. They now only sell the Resurface microdelivery peel which is 30 dollars more! Now, I know its the same thing, and I could drop the 30 extra bills on it, but I want to try and find something equally as awesome.   I want something with less liquid or cream, and more grit, like the philosophy peels. It's very sand like.   I like my exfoliating to feel like my face is going to be ripped off if I make the wrong move lol. I REALLY want to find something like the product I've mentioned above. preferably one not on Sephora, but anywhere else for less than 50 bucks, and more gritty than anything.   I found some 120 grit microdermabrasion crystals for about 12 bucks on amazon, but I want to try and find and actual product first. Thanks, guys!

 THIS new and AMAZING info I found out abut yesterday,all happened when I called the customer service on the VIB ROUGE concierge phone # to inquire about placing an order. I ended up asking her ( the kind customer service woman named Remy (I believe)  about the KEVYN AUCOIN Sensual skin Foundation and the shades I didn't know I would need..but I then told Remy there are several other KEVYN AUCOIN FOUNDATIONS THAT ARE VERY POPULAR ( one being the liquid airbrush foundation) (the other is the sensual skin foundation)   and the KEVYN AUCOIN PRIMERS that KEVYN AUCOIN sells this,  just not on Sephora) **quit yet **fingers crossed.. Then that I would have rather purchased. She said she would write a formal comment and submit it to the designated department. The 2nd concept or idea I  had spoken to her about  is a product form TATA HARPER called the "HYDRATING FLORAL ESSENCE" right when I was about to order from Sephora and was confused because I could not buy the regular size(the 4.1 ounce size bottle) of it...they only would let me buy bottle (1.7 ounces)  which is twice as small as the regular bottle (4.1 ounces)  <333MY LOVE AND ADMIRATION FOR SEPHORA HAS COME BACK AND I HOPE IT ONTINUNES!!     Now if only Sephora started selling TOM FORD'S BEUATY LINE. Now THAT would be REAL  LOVE haha Now  this picture in the link (if it works lol) makes me want to go to barneys right now ahh I <3 TOM http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=tom+ford+beaut y+traceless+foundation+stick&qpvt=tom+ford+beauty+ ...

I'm going to be purchasing a new foundation over spring break and was wondering opinions on each of these? They are at the top of my want list but am only going to be purchasing one! I have combination skin but tend to lean towards a matte finish. I'm looking for a foundation specifically to be full coverage.    Thanks in advance!

Went to update my loves list with some new MJ items and found that not only is the one gloss I already had on my list gone, but the entire item has disappeared off the site? I can access a link to the colors directly on MJ's beauty website but trying to select any to add to the cart results in a broken link. I Googled around and couldn't find any information on them being pulled -- anyone know anything? The formula wasn't my favorite but there were at least 2 more colors I was itching to try.   Orr should I be holding up hope that this means a new formulation and shade range is on its way since that's what they did for the lipsticks?   (Side note, if they were discontinued no one tell me if they were put on clearance and I missed it, that'll just kill me.)

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.

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...

ok, I know Sephora does not sell these. And, I hope everyone is staying FAR AWAY from LimeCrime. But, does anyone know how the Lunaticks lip products fare?  Are they dry, long lasting , moisturizing, good customer service, etc.?

It says 'Omega Cleansing Jelly' but when it's in my bag it says 'Perfect Cleansing Nourishing Oil', so I'm wondering what I'll get.  Has anyone gotten this sample yet?  I'm not interested in the oil, thought I'd try the jelly, which sounds kinda weird, just because it was there.  But now I'm 'invested' in it-I HATE it when I don't get what ordered!  That happened with my last order, when I didn't get the Origins Gin-Zing or the Tatcha oil, but instead got 2 very random samples.  And it's not like Sephora throws in anything extra to make up for it, or even just for good customer service!  I mean, so much for being VIB or Rouge!   Sorry, Sorry.  Didn't mean to go into a rant, but it's 2 in the morning, and it got me annoyed.  Thanks for letting me vent.

you're a Beauty Insider + VIB..... some samples would be bigger?!  Like the Philosophy moisturizer?  I got the free sample in a tablespoon size container.... so not fair!

I Have been wanting to purchase one or two things from The Tata Harper line for a while now but because there is no counter or sephora or department store where they sell it, I have no idea what her products would actually be like in real life BUT from the ingredients and descriptions they seems like my holy grail skimcare. Also the reviews I've seen Realy help pump up the interest. Specifically, I am more intrested in moisturizers such as the reparative and rebuilding moisturizer she sells and also the serum...so if you have tried her stuff (especially the moisturizers/serums) and still continue to do PLS let me know your feedback/ review also if you ended-up purchasing it and used it once and then never used it again ..those are good reasons I'd like to know and def  worth sharing as well!!! Thank you - Britt 😃

I purchased the Ole Henriksen "Unwrap Your Radiance" kit during the December sale which had the African Red Tea cleanser, and only started trying the cleanser a few days ago. I noticed at the bottom there's this strange orangy-yellow buildup? I haven't used it since but I'm unsure if this just needs to be shaken up or could signal something wrong with the cleanser itself? Is anyone familiar with this cleanser? While I had been using it and had not yet noticed this I didn't experience any issues with it but still thought I'd make sure!

I used to buy the Sunday Riley soft focus pressed finishing powder from sephora.com alll the time then sadly Sephora stopped selling Sunday Riley's makeup THEN I realized which was even worse that Sunday Riley discontinued the soft focus finishing pressed powder all together and now the brand only carries the loose powder but it's  so different from what the pressed powder formula was like...the pressed powder version just worked on my skin perfectly and I tried the loose powder but it's not close to what the pressed powder version was like. Before the company discontinued the product I tries to stock up and get as many as I could. Now that it's discontinued I have tried to find this product everywhere possible even eBay but I haven't had any luck.. Does anyone know where I can still buy this product?! I can't even find anything that is similar..Is there any websites that sell discontinued products that I don't know about? PLEASE HELP :/ any info or suggestions would be greatlyyyy appreciated!!!!
