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 . I would appreciate the option to make my posts pretty. Thanks!
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!
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.
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'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 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 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 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'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 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?
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.
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 $100 the first time somehow...) I stuffed my money back in my wallet and left. It says the correct change on the receipt but that's not what I got... Am I out of luck and just count it as lesson learned and pay with smaller bills? Or is there anything I can do?
I have this same problem with the Naked 2... I feel like all of the colors just get really muddy when you try to use them together. Anyone feel the same and/or have any suggestions? It's so much money that I feel like if I really don't love it, I'm just going to return it.
I just ordered new foundation and other items yesterday at about 3 pm. Im in Baltimore. My UPS says it is already sitting on my doorstep since an hour ago. WOW! I know there is a distribution center here in MD but it has never been delivered so fast!!!! Go Sephora during the holidays! Now lets hope I got my Dior lipstick promo and not a sub.
As a student seeking to pursue art as a major and a makeup junkie, I've come to share with you how I mix the best of both worlds. First up; THE NIJI ROLL! I use this to carry my paint brushes and color pencils around, so I figured it would work very well as a makeup brush carrier too! Sadly, the slots are a bit small for kabuki brushes though I think I'll use this to also carry my mascaras, eyeliners, lip liners, and anything else narrow or pencil like. Now I've also seen this hype on the beauty blender hard brush cleaner. The first time I saw that I thought it was just an overpriced version of The Master's Brush Cleaner. I love it. It can somehow strip the oil off of a paintbrush when turpentine could not, yet still condition the brush. If you need to reshape your brush, you can keep the soap in your brush, let it dry the way you wanted it to be shaped, and wash it again after a day or two. And those blockbuster carrier cases that cost almost 200$? 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.
Today I was thinking about products I had never heard of, or didn't expect to find, and then loved. Recently I went by Victoria's Secret (which I don't usually shop for a whole list of reasons), because I had a $10 promo gift card with no minimum purchase... so I figured, free stocking stuffer. But of course I got something for MYSELF haha! I am picky about beauty (and other) products, and normally only use high-end, stuff I've tested, and stuff that's highly recommended. I honestly don't even have any drugstore products in my house, I'm that picky. But I tried their Lip Primer on a whim and I LOVE IT. It's $12, so a reasonable price. It has this velvety not quite matte finish that makes my chapped or irritated lips look smooth and soft with soft edges. I was totally shocked by this sleeper that I have never heard of! It also has the slightest light peachy tint, so it looks great blurred outside my lip line as a smoother and soft of highlighter. It's also not too squishy and not TOO stiff and waxy. I like lip primer on the slightly waxy side. Do you have a favorite find that you weren't expecting, never heard of, or was kind of obscure or surprising? EDIT: In doing a search for this post I found out this product is being discontinued! So sad. I am going to pick another one up this week if they still have them, as a back up. Seriously, this is so sad for me I rarely find a product I love!
Hey, I was wondering if anyone has tried this kit and has some feedback about it. I have only tried a sample lipstick from KVD before, so I don't know much about her products. I really love the palette. Do the purples come out pigmented? Are the other products good?
