Just an idea but one I would love to see. I always see make overs happening in the middle of the store. And although all the make up is there and others can watch for educational purposes I never had one done because its so open. Having a private consultation in a separate room would be ideal. You wouldn't have to worry about people watching you and you could be more comfortable asking questions. Is this a possibility? How many of you would like to see this? If you got a make over was it a good experience?

We are excited to announce that as of this past weekend, we have started shipping to Canadian addresses from our new warehouse in Canada. By being able to ship directly within Canada, our clients will receive many new benefits, including faster processing and delivery times, elimination of duty charges and the addition of new brands and items to our Canadian product assortment. If there are certain favorites that appear to be out of stock, try searching for the product by name; in some cases the product item number for the product may just be different now. For other products that no longer appear on the site, we apologize that this is due to language compliance on packaging that is required to adhere to by law in order to ship within Canada. Please continue to check back as these products may become available again in the future. Q: What are some of the brands that have been removed? A: SK-II, Perricone MD, Drybar, Sunday Riley, select Murad acne products, and La Vanilla are not available for now, but we are working hard with all our brands to get their packaging Canada compliant so that we can offer them to you in the future. Q: Which brands have been added? A: We recently added shu uemera and Biotherm. Q: Why are some brands no longer available on Sephora.ca but available in store? A: Depending on the region, some Canadian stores may be able to carry these brands due to French language compliance. Store assortment is not affected. Please contact your store directly for specific product availability. Q: How do I find out if Sephora.ca still carries the products I love? A: Search by the product name as the product item number (that is used in your basket or love list) may have changed. Q: Will I still be able to get early access or limited edition products and promotions? A: Yes! We are working hard to get the hottest launches that are available and compliant for our Canadian clients. Q: How much faster will I get my Sephora orders? A: Much faster! Because we are now shipping from Canada, you save the time between our US distribution center to Canada. Q: Do I still have to pay duty on my orders? A: No duties are charged now that we’re delivering from Canada. Q: What about returns? A: If you aren’t happy with your products, returns are now free! Q: Will this move affect my BI points? A: Yes, actually. Your BI points on Sephora.ca will now be allocated based on the CAD list price, vs the USD price.

I really want to try some new foundation. I sadly live 100 miles from the nearest Sephora so going in and testing foundation is hard to do. I currently wear Urban Decay Naked foundation in 4.0. Any suggestions on good matte foundation?

I have had this makeup for a few weeks and I had expected to like it so I threw away the reciept and box. It was a powder contour and a eyebrow pomade and a mascara. Turns out the color was all wrong (I got a dark auburn color because of my red hair but my red hair fades too fast to use such a dark color) and the powder for contouring makes my skin look dirty instead of scultped. The mascara just looked unnatural haha. So i was wondering if i can exhange these for something different without the reciepts (and i kept a box for only one of the purchases) and i'd like to switch it out. Will they let me? will they let me do all three?

Hi, I just bought bareMinerals Matte foundation in golden fair today. However, I realized the expiration date is this upcoming October after I came home. I thought foundation is supposed to have longer lifespan than 3 months?

If is just me or did the FXCOLORS code just start today but already ran out of inventory?  ANDDD it was for beauty insider and rouge first access..  i really wanted to try samples of FX!   I really wonder how much inventory samples sephora.com carries before they "run out".

Just if there are any plans to sell the makeup forever primer with sunscreen. Heard about it on youtube, seems to be a great product, but for some reason not sold at sephora. Or does anyone have suggestions for an equivalent product? Looking for oil free with NO white cast, and not shiny like most chemical sunscreens. I loved the old josie moran sunscreen, hate the new one and can't find anything that works.

I'm turning 21 in September and taking 2 of my best friends and my sister to a nice hotel for 3 nights. I want to either put together a goodie bag or give them pre-made giftsets. Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe travel sized makeup or skincare and some SPF since we're in south Florida and the hotel is on the beach.   Thanks in advance

Hello fellow beauty and cosmetics, ("goo"), junkies!  I am an need of some product guidance, particularly as I am a brand-loyalist, (to Clinique), and unfortunately the product line doesn't include make-up removing/cleansing cloths.  Here's my situation, I'm an oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin type, AND, per having a stressful and MORE THAN full-time job, (AND it's the 'busy season'), have been just too tired and lazy to make the effort to do my full routine at night, every night -- which I normally LOVE doing!!  Anyway. , in an attempt to not sleep in a full face of make-up, have tried Neutrogena's wipes, and just don't feel very clean, and my skin doesn't seem to like that chemical-combo very much.  Any suggestions on Boscia's cloths?  Or other brands???  Help!  Need some advice to get me through this **momentary** beauty no-no rough patch! Thank you!

Hi, everyone! We're all beauty fanatics here, so I just wanted to start a thread about everyone's beauty tips and tricks. I was sitting here thinking that some of mine might help out you guys and I'm sure some of yours will help me (along with everyone/anyone else reading).    I'll start with a couple of mine in the comments!

You know those products on Sephora.com that never seem to go away?   Well, our beloved Emerald Tip Nail Ring is finally listed as "Only a Few Left."  I am almost tempted to get one because I think I may go into withdrawal if I don't see it in the sale section anymore!  Say your goodbyes now, ladies.     Any other goodies out there that never seem to leave inventory (I'm looking at you, Benefit Advent Calendar!)??   http://www.sephora.com/emerald-tip-nail-ring-P3780 36?skuId=1490663

Hello lovelies,   What are those products that are pricy but you absolutely can't live without. Specifically, luxurious ones that you find saving for those special occasions but love using each and every time.   For me, here are a few that I aboslutely adore:   Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray - the smell is to die for Oribe Maximista - again, gorgeous smell and great results on my fine hair Omorovicza products because they literally are the equivalent of a facial

I just wanted to share that I had the nicest experience with a Tarte brand rep in my local Sephora store last week. I commented on an employee's cute flower crown and she told me the Tarte rep brought them. She also suggested I go try out a new eye look with Ashley the brand rep. Ashley was fantastic!    She took the time to give me a whole face look, not just eyes! She talked with me about My skin concerns (deep dark circles and dry skin) and suggested some new things to try. She even made me an eye cream sample!    I truely appreciate that Sephora will do so much to train thier artists, and will invite others in store too. So much fun!!

I'm ~20 years old. I have normal skin with a very mild, if at all, breakout area along my jaw line. I use the Clarisonic Smart Profile every day to wash my face, along with a Amore Pacific under-eye cream and Clarisonic Redness Solutions moisturizer. I don't get enough sleep. I was wondering if a night cream would/could be helpful and which ones you guys suggest.

I have a question about Facial & Eyebrow Razors.  I saw there is one on Sephora:   http://www.sephora.com/eyebrow-touch-up-razor-set- P136216?country_switch=ca&lang=en   I have seen cheaper ones where you get 3 in a pack.  But my question is, once you use this product, and the hair grows back, does it actually grow back soft and not thick? Like it's not really like a actual shaving razor.   I am very hesitant to try a product like this.  I have really bad hair on my face, well use to...and for years I have been waxing.  Just wondering if this is better then waxing and doesn't grow dark and thick with this razor.  Not specifically this Sephora one, but in general the facial razors I have seen online.

I know samples (from the vendor, not created on site) can be really hit or miss in stores. I've gotten a foil from time to time, much to my surprise and delight, but I don't think I've ever received a deluxe sample except when special events offer a promotion that includes deluxe samples with purchase.   Does anybody know if stores ever have the items that are offered online with promo codes?
