Heh, I just lost 40-50 hearts in the last 20 min, so either someone suddenly decided that they REALLY don't like me, or some threads I got really passionate on got deleted. Which reminded me of something: - Can you please notify the original poster when a thread is closed or deleted? I know mods move threads around to appropriate sections, and recently have started to post a note about closed threads, but last time one of my thread was closed, it was done quietly and since I made the thread, I would like to be notified if it's closed. - Can we/the poster please have the option to edit the title of the thread? I'm not sure how easy/difficult this would be, but it would be very much appreciated if we can have this option. - Can we please please please have the subscription page somewhere obvious? It's almost impossible to find it. I subscribe to threads I'm interested in but it takes me ages to find the page where we manage our subscriptions. Perhaps put a little icon beside the PM on our side profile? or some link on our main profile page? And the font color / size / family still don't work . These options have been taunting me since the beginning of time. I would appreciate the option to make my posts pretty. Thanks!
I'm not sure if this is enabling or not? Just thought I'd mention that there is a FB group called Julep Swap where you can swap colors, buy and sell etc. Lots of girls there that make their own Indie colors and sell them too. *Disclaimer* It's not my group so I'm not promoting anything. Just thought I'd mention it.
Back during the 20% sale, I bought my mom the new UD anti-aging eye primer. She found it drying, so I was hoping to exchange it for the old formulation. (Product is unopened. She used my sample from the UD 500 pt kit.) Anyone have issues exchanging without a receipt? I know the product shows up in my Sephora account, so I can nail down the date when it was purchased, but I just can't find that stupid receipt!
I was wondering if a mod could please help me When will the Nars Ita brush #21 come back in stock? I've been wanting this brush for a while now and I'd prefer to purchase it from Sephora. I talked with Nordstrom's and they aren't planning on carrying it anymore ( muuuwahhhh I'm not sure if NARS is discontinuing this brush… Seems unlikely as it's really popular.
Hi friends, I've decided to take the plunge and purchase some of these beauties. Anyways, I'm fair skinned (please note- pale as a ghost), with freckles (not sure if that matters?) red hair and brown eyes. Which ones would work best for me? Thanks all!
Tons of ELF gift sets at Big Lots today. Super cheap to begin with and on top of that they were discounted. Good stocking stuffers for those that like ELF. The large sets at the bottom were $10 and on sale for $7.75.
This should be fun! I thought why don't we fill in the blanks of what we are primarily using right now. It would be fun to see the variety of answers! Foundation: Concealer: Eyeliner: Eyeshadow: Powder: Blush: Bronzer: Lipstick: Lipgloss: Mascara: Brows:
I received a $30 gift card to Sephora last week. I know it's not much. I can spend about $20 of my own money too. So I want to buy something really worth it. A staple. I am also new to makeup. I already have plenty of eye and lip products. Some of my favorite brands are Clinique, Bareminerals, Tarte, and Smashbox. So what should I spend with my $30????
I'm just wondering - if an item I want is out of stock online and everywhere near me and I find it at another store out of state (really far away) could that store ship it to me or ship it to a store in my area? I know it's probably a long shot, but I'm hoping...
I've compiled a list of gluten-free beauty products available on sephora.com.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein derived from wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. There are some cosmetics products labeled as gluten-free. If you are interested in these products look for statements like “gluten-free” or “no gluten” on the product package label. Because of periodic changes in product ingredient formulations and sources, for the most up-to-date information we recommend contacting brands directly regarding gluten-free status of their products.

Smashbox has advised that the following products do contain gluten; the rest of their line (with the exception of seasonal items such as palettes and limited edition products) are gluten-free.
Smashbox items which contain gluten:
Bionic Mascara (Jet Black), Layer Lash Primer, Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder (all shades), Doubletake Lip Color (Praline, Sugar Spice, Cranberry), Lip Treatment SPF 15
We cannot claim that any of our products are gluten free. Some of our products contain ingredients/source of gluten [wheat germ oil, vit E etc]. As all our products are produced by the same production line and although a very strict cleansing procedure is followed after every production, we have not the possibility to check our products for traces of eventually allergical ingredients in low-value (high-ratio) proportions [parts-per-million (ppm)]. Thus we cannot claim for our products that are gluten free.
Products which do not contain gluten as an ingredient-

I just ordered new foundation and other items yesterday at about 3 pm. Im in Baltimore. My UPS says it is already sitting on my doorstep since an hour ago. WOW! I know there is a distribution center here in MD but it has never been delivered so fast!!!! Go Sephora during the holidays! Now lets hope I got my Dior lipstick promo and not a sub.
I went to my local Sephora today and saw a bunch of NEW Sephora Favorites sets! Well at least, I believe they're new. I've only been a Sephora addict for a few months now. They are an essential oils set (face oil, hair oil, cleansing oil, body oil), set of 5 Sephora brand eyeliners, a new Favorites set, and a set of "glow" products like bronzers and High Beam. What new sets have you spotted recently and which are catching your eye?
I hate to be one of those people who say I'm never shopping at Sephora again Blah blah blah. But I have just had the most HORRID experience at my local SIJCP store. I recently bought the Kat Von D lock it tattoo foundation online (42 no longer available in stores). Needless to say this foundation did not play nice with my dry skin so I headed to my local sephora packing slip in hand to return/find something different. However the associate wouldn't let me do it!! She was so snotty and rude to me I almost cried right there at checkout. I gave her my reciept and the foundation (still in the box) and she asked for my license and proceeded to tell me it wouldn't accept my return because I have returned too many items with no receipt.(she was acting so superior like I was some kind of clepto or scum of the earth) What?? Imagine my confusion because 1. I did in fact have my receipt in hand and 2. I have never returned something without the packing slip. She proceeded to inform me that the PACKING SLIP IS NOT A RECIEPT and therefore had to be processed as a return with no reciept. SInce I am not near a free standing sephora every online order I return goes back to this SIJCP store. SO needless to say I was unable to complete the return. I was so humiliated I turned and high tailed it out of there and didn't even get to redeem my $15 off of $50 that expires today. Up until now I have been a loyal Sephora customerr because of their generous return policy and I could have confidence that if I ordered something online and the product didn't work for me I could bring it back. Apparently is no longer the case..... Sorry for the super long rant, but I'm just so upset right now
I have this same problem with the Naked 2... I feel like all of the colors just get really muddy when you try to use them together. Anyone feel the same and/or have any suggestions? It's so much money that I feel like if I really don't love it, I'm just going to return it.
I was wondering what other people use to wash their pretty faces (besides Clarisonic). For a few years now, I use rolled cotton from the drug store for removing face masks. I just got turned onto muslin cloths as they feel slightly more exfoliating and not as messy (for cream cleansers). I'm scared of using cotton wash cloths on my face because of laundry detergent (even though I use a natural detergent) - maybe I'm paranoid. So what works for you?
DISCLAIMER: SEPHORA DOES NOT HAVE HAVE A "LIVE CHAT" FEATURE. It just dawned on me to wonder why Sephora doesn't have Live Chat for Customer Service and product/shade recommendations? Bobbi Brown does. MAC does. Why behind the times Sephora?
I'm stuck on the Canadian page! For whatever reason, when I go to www.sephora.com, it brings up the Canadian page instead of the USA page. I live in the USA, so why's it doing that? (fyi- my personal info is correct. It's just distracting to see different pricing and not all of the products.)
I want to try the bars sheer glow foundation but i don't know what my shade would be. I'm NC44-45 because I'm tanned. Help please i don't want to pick the wrong shade, I'm confused between Syracuse and Tahoe.
I was picking up some Christmas presents at my local JCP Sephora on Thursday. I bought the Tarte Lash set and then the JCP Sephora Favorites Lip set - total would of been $53. I used my $15 off $50 coupon, and then I had a $10 gift card, so my total came out to about $30 incl. tax. I paid with a $100 bill. Problem is my change was $15 short. I didn't notice until I got home. The store was really busy and the cashier didn't count out my change (she seemed new? She rung me up at $100 the first time somehow...) I stuffed my money back in my wallet and left. It says the correct change on the receipt but that's not what I got... Am I out of luck and just count it as lesson learned and pay with smaller bills? Or is there anything I can do?
Sephora seriously needs to carry the British brand No. 7 by Boots. Honestly, its some of the best skin care that I have ever used and it has transformed my skin. And this is coming from someone who has used many high end brands like Lancome, Ole Henriksen, L'Occitane etc. Even Ulta has it! Sephora is way better. You will make a lot of customers very very happy with this line.
As a student seeking to pursue art as a major and a makeup junkie, I've come to share with you how I mix the best of both worlds. First up; THE NIJI ROLL! I use this to carry my paint brushes and color pencils around, so I figured it would work very well as a makeup brush carrier too! Sadly, the slots are a bit small for kabuki brushes though I think I'll use this to also carry my mascaras, eyeliners, lip liners, and anything else narrow or pencil like. Now I've also seen this hype on the beauty blender hard brush cleaner. The first time I saw that I thought it was just an overpriced version of The Master's Brush Cleaner. I love it. It can somehow strip the oil off of a paintbrush when turpentine could not, yet still condition the brush. If you need to reshape your brush, you can keep the soap in your brush, let it dry the way you wanted it to be shaped, and wash it again after a day or two. And those blockbuster carrier cases that cost almost 200$? I swear to god this works almost exactly the same way. Or any carrier case actually. I'm pretty sure you can use art brushes as makeup brushes as well; some of them are very soft and durable. They're not cheap, but at least they don't cost 20$ a brush. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to go find an angled shader and liner brush for eyelining and a small sablette for the lips. Of course these wouldn't be the prettiest things in your vanity, but they're great if you want to save a dollar to spend more on actual makeup. These are all I can think of for now. I'll post more when I get other flashes of inspiration.
