So recently I've been seeing people talk about this brand on Beauty Talk and I've never heard of this brand before and everyone seems to be raving about it.... SO WHAT IS ALL THE HYPE??? Why is everyone so in love with this stuff? I starting to get very interested in these products but why is every loving this stuff??? DO TELLLL
So, I am looking to add to my brush collection and I have been eyeing the IT Brushes from Ulta a lot, but then I was thinking about how obviously Sephora carries brushes too (Sephora Brand) LOL Anyways, I was looking for some opinions on which brushes you like better? Do you think the brushes are a hit or a miss depending on which brush you get? Do you think either brand is a rip off and you don't get what you pay for? Or do you think they are fairly priced and great quality for the price? Do you think I should snag up some Ulta brushes since I have a coupon or should I wait and get some Spehora brushes during Chic week at Sephora? Any opinions/comments would be greatly appreciated!!
I have a few spots on my face that I've been taking care of and they've gotten lighter and a bit more fleshy colored, but is there anything else that's effective for lightening them? I've got oily skin that can break out easily.
About half the time I try to get access to Sephora.com, I get the following message: I'm just curious if anyone else is having this problem, as I'm getting conflicting information from google. Some sites say it's a server issue on the site's end, others say it's a cache problem, some say something that I can't understand. Perhaps a mod can help? Please?
Anybody have a no!no!? I'm looking for a hair removal device. I would love to have a tria but I'm not ready to invest that kind of money in a device. The no!no! is about $200.00 cheaper and I'm wondering if anyone has one - If so, do you like it? Is it worth the investment? Or maybe you know of another hair removal device that's not as expensive as the tria but still effective. I'm totally open for discussion.
*heads up, this IS a rant*
So I went into Sephora today looking for a new moisturizer. My skin has been insanely dry lately, and my Sheer Transformation is doing literally nothing. Normally I have normal skin - I think the dryness is from my new cleansing routine, I've heard the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser has been drying out a lot of people. Anyway, I go into the store and head to the SkincareIQ device. I enter in my concerns, skin type, all that. I start looking at a cream from FAB and trying it on my hand when the brand rep walks up to me.
"Oh, you're looking for a new moisturizer?" I respond politely, she asks me my skin concerns, we go back and forth a few times, and she pulls me over to her brand, Ren. Tells me "Now, this has no parabens, silicone, or fragrance to it, all of which you said were important to you."
I said I didn't want it to feel oily. But alright. I took a sample of it and later tried it on in store.
Wouldn't you know it? My face is shiny, my skin is bumpy, and an hour later the flakiness is coming back.
I hate dealing with brand reps. I understand it's their job, but what if I had decided to buy that? I would've paid for and had to return a product that was terrible for me because she doesn't know anything about other brands that would be better for my skin. Her job is to try and get as many people to purchase her brand as she can, sometimes ignoring their actual skin concerns.
Sorry for the rant. Thanks for letting me vent <3
I was able to use a sample of Capture Totale Dreamskin by Dior and I love it! But i can't justify the price tag. Is there another primer that you recommend that evens out skintone and brightens the way the Dior one did for me? Thanks!
I'm trying to decide between the Diorshow and Lancome mascaras, but I need to try both of them out first. I don't want to buy both of them then return one if I don't like it, but I don't want to use the testers at the Sephora near me since they're usually really gross. If I ask, will one of the cast members give me a sample of the mascaras, or do they not give mascara samples?
I love the NARS sheer glow foundation and I would hate for it to be discontinued, but I've been reading mixed news lately and just want to know if anyone knows for sure? I've also noticed that sephora no longer has the sheer matte foundations available for purchase. I am looking forward to trying their new "all day luminous" foundation, but sheer glow will always be my favorite...
Hey guys! I'm doing a "purge" of all things beauty related. I have way too much stuff that I really cant use due to it not being right for my skin/not for my hair type. I thought about giving it all away, but that's money walking out the door. It wouldn't be a big deal if it was all foils, but I have a lot of other stuff. I could be blind, but I haven't seen any new TSB's going on right now I could possibly jump in (never done it before). Or that we would allow me to be in one as most want VIB or Rouge which I no longer am. It says in Beauty Talk I still am, but on my account it says Beauty Insider. The trade thread is also a possibility, but the problem is a lot of that stuff I'll have to hold on to until someone wants it. So I'm asking you guys to weigh in for your best advice! I put some pictures down below so you can begin to see an example of the pile up of what only 30 minutes worth of stuff found looks like and looks like I got an hour or two of things most likely to add.
I picked up the Holiday Perfect set since it's 2x points and so far I'm liking the Pure Revival Peel and the brightening serum seems alright but I also keep smelling that distinct rubbing alcohol scent (isopropyl alcohol is a listed ingredient) and I can't keep it straight on which alcohols are good for your skin and which aren't. I generally use Paula's Choice as a starting guide for my skincare shopping but don't swear up and down by her word, and Skin Inc has yet to make it on there. Has anyone else tried any of their stuff? I searched the threads (for whatever reason, it only bounces back results with the word skin in it, no matter what search string I try) and Google only gives me blog posts from people who attended a press event in Korea or Glossybox reviews. It's more expensive for a relatively unknown brand so I'm hoping if any of you use/love their stuff you'll fill me in
Hey guys! I just bought the Beauty Blender after wanting it for so long and I realized that I didn't really know much about it. I have a few questions that hopefully some of you beauties can answer! - Is the solid cleanser really worth it? What are some alternatives? - Can I use Dove soap to clean it? - How long does the solid cleanser last? - How often do I clean my beauty blender? - Where is s good place to store my BB while it's air drying? - After each use, do I just rinse it under warm water, squeeze it and place it in the packaging to dry? Or do I have to clean it with a cleanser? - What are some Do's and Don't's with this product? Any tips for use or care of this product would be very helpful!!
Sooo I've been trying to get my hands on a kat von d ladybird palette for a while and it seems like every product comes in and out of stock in the sale section except this one! It is my white whale and my albatross. Is there a way I can track one down in an obscure corner of the sephora warehouse? And if the sad answer is no and my dreams are dead.. could someone please tell me it's not the greatest palette ever so I can have some closure lol?
Hi girls/guys! I've got a question for you today. Has anyone else been ignored because of what they were wearing? I've had some bad experiences based on what I was wearing. When its a Monday night at 8 pm and I decide to hop in the car and run to Sephora, I am not going to get all dressed up. I walked into the store wearing my naked face and large sweats and a large sweatshirt, I was just lounging around in my bedroom mind you. I am the only one in the store and no one even acknowledged my existence. I stood in front of the MUFE eyeshadows for about 30 minutes swatching different shades and no one came and asked me for help. I had a worker just stand 10 feet away staring at me for a good minute or two without saying anything. Maybe he thought I was going to steal something? I decided to walk the store and see if that caught anyone's attention, but no one would talk to me. I am not the most socially forward person, so I didn't want to go hunt someone down and ask for their help. Compare this to my experience a week prior. I walk in with a full face of makeup and jeans on with a cute sweater (it was -20 that day) and I am bombarded with people. I get someone who matches and applies my foundation and another who comes and asks if I want a "free spa experience". I had someone come up and hand me a basket and another ask if I needed help finding a brush. I adored that service and was blown away when I walked in on that Monday and was completely ignored. It wasn't the first time I was ignored either, but this time stood out to me because I was the only person in the store. Has anyone else had this experience or was it just me?
There are 3 Sephora locations in Spokane, WA (about a 40 minute drive from Coeur d'Alene), but there are NO Sephora's in the northern part of Idaho!! There is a new "Village" near the lake with very nice restaurants, movie theater, very nice shopping and it's an outdoor mall. A Sephora would be PERFECT there!! I know several people in this area (me included) who never drive to Spokane because it's a real pain to do so, we don't like the Spokane area at all, and we want a local Sephora! Hopefully Sephora will consider this and move one into the new Village plaza! There is an Ulta in Coeur d'Alene, but I never shop there. My heart belongs to Sephora! (Shows since I could be VIB Rouge two times over most years!)
I am new to blogging and vlogging and was wondering how much support Sephora gives to people in my situation. I have bought all of my makeup at local Sephora Stores and have plenty of good things to say about them.
Hey bt'ers. I'm looking to invest in a mirror to do my makeup. Sadly I currently hold up a hand held one with one hand and my tools or makeup products being applied in the other. Needless to say my arm gets tired lol and I feel my makeup is never good as it can be. What are your thoughts on the simple Human Mirror and what size do you suggest for doing full face makeup daily. Are they worth the investment?. Thanks lovelys
Hey guys! I find it extremely difficult to spend C$65 on a brush.. What are some dupes for this brush? Or do you guys think I should just splurge and get it? Does it shed after you've washed it? Let me know your thoughts!
I just received a new ipad mini 2 for Christmas and I am loving it. Anyone received any good promotion codes for placing an order through it? Any special promotions for your very first order through the App? They make it "seem" like you get bonus content and such just want to make sure I am not missing anything. Thank you.
I created a thread to help, but it does not appear on the main page (so the people I wanted to help will not see it). Trying again to get it on the main page. If your private messages do not work, please view this link. http://community.sephora.com/t5/BeautyTalk-Support /Private-Messages-Not-Working/m-p/1851737#M1183
I've been wanting to purchase this but considering the price (C$76), I'm not sure if it's worth it. Have any of you tried it? How long does the full size last? How often should I use it? Any pros and cons would be greatly appreciated
So I've been committing a big no-no and havn't been wearing sunscreen on my face except the SPF offered by my foundation. SInce that's only 15 and I'm as pale as a ghost, I figure I should really change my routine. In past summers I've always just slathered on the same stuff I've put on my body, which would lead to painful breakouts. So, to finally get to my question, what face sunscreen have you all had good luck with? I'm open to both drug store and medium end brands, but my wallet as a college student can't go too high haha.
Is there ever been an answer from Sephora as to why they don't give points for filling out reviews? It seems they could relatively easily set up something similar to how birchbox gives their points for rewards (in Sephora's case, you simply would have had to have the item in your purchase history to get points so this would stop people from randomly filling out reviews on products they haven't bought or gotten samples of). 10 points per review to get 100 point reward when you have filled out 10 doesn't seem too unreasonable. Plus, I believe the questions birchbox asks get sent to back to the cosmetic companies (aka they might pay for this info/cynthia rowley picked the new shades for her lip stain based on these reviews). I never fill out reviews here (I look at them when deciding to purchase a product though), because there is no incentive for me to spend my time doing so (I spread my reviews by word of mouth I guess). However, I always fill them out on birchbox, because I get to buy products with those rewards. I love that birchbox shows the people who sampled or purchased an item, because then I feel like I can gauge their review better. I don't really see a negative for Sephora if they added this incentive for folks to fill out the reviews on the products they ordered (they already send me the emails to fill them out).
