Points from store purchases
I made two purchases in a local sephora retail store in the past month but have not seen them showing on my beauty insider points. I showed my beauty insider card every time I made the purchase. How long would it take to have those posted on my online account?

Cake Beauty still available in Canadian stores?
I visited a Sephora store in Calgary today (specifically the Core Shopping Centre - downtown). I was looking for the Canadian line Cake Beauty which I had previously purchased from that location.    A sales associate told me that they no longer carry the line in the store. Is this only for this particular store, or is it not being sold in an Sephora Canada store anymore?

Request to have Fragrance IQ on Sephora.com!
I really love how shopping at Sephora can be a totally self service yet customized experience with the custom samples, Skin IQ and the Pantone color matching. I remember there used to be a feature on the sephora website where you could do advanced searches for fragrances by notes, like woodsy or floral (I think it was fragrance finder). Now that they have the fragrance IQ quiz in stores I think it would be great if they made the same quiz available online! It would be so enabling for me!

Clarisonic Smart Profile - First impression Review!!
I was very lucky and blessed to win the Clarisonic giveaway last week and I received the device kit yesterday in the morning!! Let me first say, Thank you Sephora and Clarisonic for this awesome giveaway!   I didn't expect Sephora would send me the kit this fast though.  (BTW, am I the first winner who got this??)  I couldn't move any faster to open the box. The device kit was much bigger than I thought it would be, plus a congratulation memo from Sephora .   I roughly went through the manual first and learned that I have to charge the device for 24 hours prior to the first use. So I charged it and tried it today. I think I've never been excited to go home and wash my face . Who knew I would be this excited to take off my make up, lol.  As soon as I came home, I ran straight to my bathroom and used the device. And you know what? It's AMAZING!   I've been using Neutrogena Microdermabraison system over a year. And it's the only cleansing device I've ever tried. I heard a lot of good things about Clarisonic, but I never reached out for one because of its price tag. I'm more of a makeup girl and I don't spend my fortune for skincare. I was quite happy with my Neutrogena system and would've been forever happy with it only if I didn't know how good Clarisonic is!!   As I'm entering my late 20's, I've noticed that my pores are getting bigger and I spotted more blackheads on my nose. These were the reasons I bought the Neutrogena system at the first place. But holly molly! Clarisonic is so much softer and moisturizing(?) and also doesn't leave me the tingly or itchy feelings and redness on my face that Neutrogena always gave me.   I think it's the brush that makes the biggest difference. The Clarisonic brush is so soft compared to the Neutrogena pad (not brush). The pad has a bit of sand feeling on the surface (Feels like a scrub that has really big particles in it). And I don't get how it could even moisturize my face. I guess moisturizing is not really a proper term here, but I actually feel like my face is very moistened after using it without any noticeable redness on my cheeks and forehead. Every time I used Neutrogena, my face turned quite red for a few hours, but Clarisonic didn't make my cheeks that red at all! My face is very smooth and feels like baby skin now. I can't stop rubbing my cheeks (perv alert!).    I also have to mention how nice the device stand is. The stand makes easy to place the device. And the charger is magnetic. These are just little something, but very nice little something . Overall I think this device is so worth the money and deserves a good review.   I was actually ready to criticize this product before using it. I didn't want to be all so nice because I got it free. Yet I'm only telling you guys how good it is because I can't literally think of any con right now. (I used it only for once. I'm not sure if I'll find some cons in the future.)   If I knew Clarisonic is this great, I would've bought one with my own money a long time ago. I'm wondering how Smart profile is different from previous models though. Anyway I'm seriously so thankful for this giveaway to let me have this wonderful device in my life! What a beautiful night for me!!   *I didn't mean to write this long.. but I had so much to tell you guys!! lol

Have you tried Perricone MD Chloro Plasma or white GlamGlow?
Anyone here uses Perricone MD Chloro Plasma? I think I'm really loving it, but I'm not sure if it's the hype or if it's really working. The good thing is it's available in .5oz so I can give it a good go without splurging for the full size *cough* white glamglow *cough*......   ....speaking of which, I've also heard some ppl have problem of the GlamGlow harden before they were able to finish it, eventho you supposedly can just add water to it.....anyone had that problem?

Grand opening of first Sephora in my town tomorrow! Squeeee!
So, of course I'm going, but is there any reason I should go early? Are there any special buys associated with grand openings? I know about the gwp makeup bag. Tomorrow is a province-wide teacher conference, so no school tomorrow, which means a lot of girls will be there (smart Sephora!) I also happen to have the day off.   If I go first thing, should I get there before opening... Will there be a lineup? I'm only a 5 minute drive away

Eyes...47 yo needs major eyes performance...plastic surgery kind
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!!

Why is Sephora hygiene standard falling (international store)?
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

Tarte Brushed with Destiny Makeup Brush Set !
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

Sephora website feature
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.
