Nars Pop Life in Canada
Hi,   I'm trying to order Nars Pop Life Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. It seems to be permanent, and HBC here in Canada sells it, but it's not listed on the Velvet Matte page on the Canadian Sephora site. Is this not being sold on the Canadian Sephora site?   Thanks!

Majorly Miffed About Samples
I know many have noticed lately that Sephora has fallen off the wagon in regards to samples. In a major way. Today I received yet another order without the samples I requested. So I wondered, exactly how bad has it gotten? Since Nov. 6th I have placed 12 orders. That's 36 requested samples. Of that 36 I have received 11. Sometimes the samples were substitutions. Other times there have been no samples at all.   Now, Sephora can claim that they disclose that "substitutions will be made for out of stock samples". All very well and good, but I have been a customer for over a decade. This recent sample fiasco has caught my attention because up until now I have received the requested samples nearly 100% of the time. I am also not stupid enough to think Sephora didn't see/anticpate a problem with the samples and thus removed requested sample listings from the invoices. (This is fairly recent.)   So Sephora, why are you still letting us think we get to pick our samples when in fact we do not? Why is a sample I requested not being delivered with my order but still showing up days later as an available sample? (* cough* Sephora Collection Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes *cough* Maison Margiela Lipstick On *cough) I realize a free sample isn't something to get my undies in a bundle about... Generally speaking anyway, which is why I haven't said much over the past few months. Some of us though, live in smaller areas where brands like Maison Margiela aren't in store and we place an order specifically for that sample. When we don't receive it, it's a disappointment. When it happens over and over and over again over a period of months... well one starts to think you're either lying or you really need to get your #%$@ together.

Nurse Jamie Acellerator
Does the Nurse Jamie Acellerator have universal voltage for travelling?  I believe that it is not cordless and has to be plugged in for use.     Also how does it compare with Nuface Trinity - same technology?  just as effective?

Does anyone know a similar site? Reviews made by experts and with more brands? I feel that Paula's choice is not updated and there so many brands that are missing...

Best Product to Invest In
I have a $50.00 Gift Card (Canadian) and want to try to get a couple of things out of it.  I am going to be asking a friend who is dropping in the City this weekend and I will be giving her an extra $20.00 so let's say $70.00 in total I have.  The Sephora in the City which is like 2-3 hours away from me doesn't usually carry a lot of the stuff I want.  Which is why I have to always create a list.   I created a list of some stuff I want to get that I have been wanting to try in forever basically.  But wondering if there is anything else worth spending money on...   This is what I have so far:   1. ABH Brow Wiz 2. ABH Brow Gel 3. ABH Brush #20 (this is a maybe) 4. MUFE Aqua XL Eye Pencil in Matte Pastel Blue 5. NARS Radiant Concealer   Any other suggestions?

Eyeliner breaking
I have a MUFE Aqua XL eyeliner and whenever I try to sharpen it, the tip breaks off in the sharpener.   1) It's a new sharpener, so the blade isn't dull. 2) I've tried putting it in the freezer before sharpening and that didn't help.   Does any one have ideas on how to prevent it from breaking off?   Thanks!

ONLINE RESERVATIONS - TOO MANY STORES STILL NOT AVAILABLE!
I absolutely love the online beauty reservation module for booking makeovers, however only TWO of my local stores are on there.   Sephora Park Royal - ONLINE Sephora Pacific Center - ONLINE Sephora Metropolis - MISSING Sephora Coquitlam - MISSING Sephora Robson - MISSING Sephora Guildford - MISSING Sephora Abbotsford - MISSING   When are these Sephoras going to get with the program? They are IMPOSSIBLE to book at through old-school means, you are lucky when they answer the phone, and they are always so scattered when you try and ask for dates.   PLEASE GET THESE STORES ON THE RESERVATION PROGRAM ASAP!

Moisturizer underneath Cover Fx BB Gel?
Hi everyone!   I am new to the BB cream world and am anxious to try them out! I first picked up the Clinique Acne Solutions BB cream, however, the shade was way to light!   I went into Sephora and the lovely representative pointed me towards Cover Fx BB Gel mainly for its acne fighting properties. We then did a shade test and it ended up matching perfectly (I was so happy)!   I am just wondering though, should I be applying a moisturizer underneath the Cover Fx BB Gel? I first assumed that I shouldn't be as BB creams/gels are supposed to be that 'all in one' product, which contains coverage, hydration, and beneficial skincare properties.  But I am a bit confused with the Cover Fx; because it contains salicylic acid it seems as if it will be drying.  The product claims to have hydration properties but I am just not sure!   What do you think? Let me know! Thank you!

Tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation
Hey! I don't know if this is the right spot to ask this, but here goes: I saw that you guys got the Rainforest of the Sea collection from Tarte (yay! I love their stuff) but I was wondering if you think you'll ever get the Tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation? It looks absolutely amazing and I really want to try it. I would order it from them directly, but I'd like to get it through you guys so I can collect beauty points (and also so I can come in and make sure they have my colour)

Shiseido white lucent skincare set
Hi guys! Has anyone tried this shiseido set? I'm really curious about the effects. I'm looking to revamp my skincare routine and I currently use a bunch of drugstore stuff plus the ole henrikson truth serum and nurture me cream. I want something brightening and this really caught my eye. For those who have used it, what skin type does it seem to work for? I have combination skin with oily noise and forehead and drier cheeks and around the mouth area.

What Is Your Favorite Indie Brand?
It might sound dumb but I am tired of going online daily and seeing URBAN DECAY, MAC, ELF, and even the word "SALE" in my emails. I want to check out some indie makeup brands that most people do not know of, but sadly when I look online all I see is Colourpop, Dose of Colors, or Limecrime. Between you me and the four walls I do not refer to them as indie brands anymore since they're so popular and almost every beauty lover knows of the two brands. Kinda looking for hidden gems! If you'd like list the specific product too! Wasn't sure were to post this btw!   OKAY this is a repost only because someone had a great answer and unlike a discussion I couldn't reply !
