Well ladies, looks like it's time for another party! My friend rdesigns has 2503 hearts!!
Woo-Hoo!!!! I've been a bit absent lately and have missed some heart parties (sorry, my bad) So I was Thrilled when I noticed that someone very near and dear to me has just passed the 2500 mark! My buddy, rdesigns, has earned 2503 hearts!!   Her avatar grabbed my attention and put some kind of a spell on me - her friendship and love has warmed my heart and given me much comfort and strength. Thank you my friend.   Thanks to **Sephora** for giving us this forum, were it not for bt, I would have never met some of the most special and extraordinary ladies who I am proud to call my friends. You know who you are, thank you all.     ps -rdesigns - trying really hard to turn Crappy Anniversary Friday around - Thank you rdesigns for being kind enough to hit the 2500 mark today, just for me.

Your opinion on....Boscia
Hello everyone! I was curious what everyone thought about Boscia. I am interested in trying out their Little Black Book kit, the Clear Complexion Kit, the Konjac Cleansing Sponge with bamboo charcoal, and the Makeup-breakup cool cleansing oil. Does anyone have a thought or opinion on any of these objects because I would love to hear them.

Get handsy: Tell me about your favorite hand creams!
And yes, packaging does matter   I am looking for a great-smelling cream that will look cute sitting on my desk, that actually does what any good hand cream should. I don't want to have to apply it every two hours in order for my hands to feel moisturized, but I'm sick of buying Eucerin or Aveeno and not having any fun with how the creams actually look and smell! I like florals and fruits, and even herbs...I'm not picky in the smell department.   Please share with me your favorite creams that you think fit the bill!

Hello and Happy Easter - Putting a bit of a different spin on this Easter thread
Hoping Many People Can Make It Through This - Hopefully Everyone Will Take Something Special Away From This -   Hello & Happy Easter everybody - I hope that you all enjoy a beautiful and glorious day - regardless of your religion. I hope that everyone is able to find a little 'gift' that has been sent to them today. Some may need to search harder for this 'gift' than others, but I hope and pray that Everybody is able to find a little special something to make them smile and to let them know they are loved.   Another Special Thought - I was sending a PM to a friend a little while ago and just before sending it I thought "Gee, I wish she could spend Easter with me." So I wrote and told her of my wish and told her that she would be sitting right next to me in spirit - and that was a wonderful feeling to me.   I hope everyone 'feels' someone special sitting next to them at some point today. Maybe a PM friend, a relative who is far away and especially any loved ones we may have lost   I know I will have a Very large table Full of those I hold dear, several PM friends included, and I'm super thankful for that.    Happy Easter and Happy Day to all of you, straight from my heart.

What's your favorite Givenchy item?
So we've talked about Dior, YSL, Guerlain a lot on here. What about Givenchy? I feel like no one ever mentions it, lol, but this new product piqued my interest: Pic from chicProfile.

This box is open for US shipping only. The shipping becomes more expensive for Canada, and takes longer due to border checks. Sorry   Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and then give the rest to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn)
 
■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly 
 ■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB. 
■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. 
 ■ DON'T swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items.
 ■ DON'T take more than one of the same sample if multiples exist. Share the love!
 ■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value.
     Do’s 
♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask!
 ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are NOT (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask!
  ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such.
 ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box.

Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box.

Yay! Hit Rouge in-store today! & BOO it doesn't show up yet :(
And when I say Yay, let me tell you that the first word out of my mouth when the lady informed me of my newly-acquired Rouge status was "No...". By my calculations, I was expecting it to happen in September at the earliest hahah. I guess that Tria & Clarisonic purchase really sped me along nicely! What I am sad about is that it hasn't changed the status of my online account. I put off buying a few more items tonight because I was looking forward to my free shipping. Does anybody know how to update my status or whether my shipping will automatically be free?   Cheers, ladies!

Items bought online, already touched?
Has anyone bought something on Sephora's online website and opened it and it actually looked like someone had touched it? I recently bought the Chocolate Bar palette online because it has been sold out in the stores near me, and when I got it I opened it and it looked, to me, like someone may have already touched a few of the shades?

How did you like your Mario Badescu products? (Review)
So I know some ladies here use Mario Badescu products, and others have gotten samples from them*. Their lines get pretty good reviews and I really like their rosewater/aloe facial spray so I decided to try a couple more products. What did you ladies get? Any favorites?   For reference, I have oily/combo in the summer and dry/combo in the winter (nowish). Orange Tonic mask - It smells like orange juice but it looks white. It is a thin clay mask, like Glamglow white or Boots Botanic but a little lotion-y instead of watery. It's a soft mask and you can feel a gentle tightening as it dries. It rinse off ok but....doesn't leave me with a super clean feeling like Origins charcoal that I use....   Strawberry Face scrub - It smells like strawberry gum, and the scrub is basically a light pink cream with sparse amounts of strawberry seeds. It reminds me of Origins Modern Friction, altho I prefer thick paste of grains rather than cream/watery solution with sparse grains.   Enzyme Cleansing gel - It's non-foaming gel cleanser, kind of like Anthony Logistic glycolic, with a very mild pleasant scent. After rinsing, my skin felt clean and comfortable. It does cleanse off makeup but you have to rub it in for at least 10-20 seconds (tested with UD eyeliner, powder eyeshadow and KVD lipstick)   Special Cucumber lotion - It reminds me of Clinique toner 2 (with an even shorter ingredients list). Both have a astrigent scent, refreshing and leaving no residue on the skin. Clinique toner 2 does dry my cheeks out in the winter and this didn't. This also didn't sting even when my skin is a bit sensitive after a peel. I might get this for next summer.....   Hyaluronic Eye cream - It's a normal cream, not lightweight and not heavy. There's absolutely no scent and it does not irritate even around lash line. A great basic eye cream for sensitive eyes and, pretty much all skin types unless you are super oily or super dry.   Collagen Moisturizer SPF15 - scentless, a lightweight cream that sinks in easily. It's perfect for combo/normal skin and I would imagine this is good for sensitive skin. Nothing super fantastic about it but very nice.   Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater - this is actually the first thing I brought from the brand. I like the simple natural ingredients list. Very mild rose scent and feels just like water on the skin. In addition to use on skin it's great for taming my static-y hair in the winter.   They are a pretty natural brand with simple ingredients list, which I like. I'm not a fan of the mask and scrub. The eye cream and moisturizer are good but nothing fancy (but then again, they also don't cost $50 per oz or something). I'm going to purchase a full size cucumber toner and the drying cream to try next time (after my wallet recovers from all the Sephora holiday goodies).   *Mario Badescu will mail you free samples if you fill out the skincare survey on their website. It doesn't always work, so make an account, do the survey, maybe even put the products in your basket and wait. If you don't get an email within the week then try again?

Re: Thanks for your purchase. Ready to review?
Dear Sephora,   You are welcome for my purchase. No I am not ready to review, and half the time I have already reviewed. I do like receiving emails from Sephora, especially rouge emails after 4 month of trying (thank you by the way). However, what is up with the review reminder emails?   I don't get review reminders for all of my orders, just some of them (why??). And sometimes I get those emails AFTER I have already done a review. I am aware that Sephora email system is lacking, but while you are fixing it, can you add in a little feature where if we have already reviewed something, STOP sending us review reminders? or better yet, don't send us any review reminders.  Thank you.   Sigh & Facepalm, BeautyTester

Sephora Pro Powder Brush #61 vs Tarte Airbrush Finish Foundation Brush?
I ordered the Sephora Pro Allover Powder Brush #61 and received it today, only to notice a striking similarity to the Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush.  Does anyone have both?  I really don't want to use the Sephora brand brush just to test it because then I'll feel terrible about returning it, but I also don't want to keep it if the Tarte brush is identical.   If you've ever been in a similar situation, what did you do about it?  Keep both brushes even if they're complete dupes?  Return the new one?     Halp!

My prom is coming up and I need my makeup done.
The neighboring makeup artists do NOT do my eyebrows justice. So I heard about the $50 "makeover" and I'm just curious as to how it works.

Make an appointment online or by calling the store.  You go in, talk a bit about what you want, and someone will do your make-up and show you the products they are using... see post

What EXACTLY is the Difference Between the 2 GlamGlow Facial Products?
Is there additional specific information available for these two GlamGlow products?   -Glamglow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask (black jar) -Glamglow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment (white jar)   I have read all information on the individual product pages but still am unsure of the answers to these questions: -How do these 2 products differ? -Does each perform a unique function? -Is one better suited for certain skin types? -Is it useful to own both, or will one suffice?

Make sure you use it a few times.  (Not that you are or are not, but...) Kids now days are an impatient, different breed of people.  If they don't get results NOW, they ... see post

Ugh Sephora Experience.
Mixed Sephora experience... Evidently I do have a love/hate relationship with my Sephora store. I've made a habit out of going on the weekends and evenings, since that's when the MUA whom I love, the Manager who is awesome, and a few other stellars work. This morning, I was running errands so complete dressed down in chucks, Levi's, t, cardi and scarf. My errand at Sephora included a returning one item and purchasing a few gifts.  Guess what? Totally ignored. So I bumbled around trying to get the things on my list with no help, but one eye-roll, and then I met Michael. OMG I love him!!! We bonded over our 80s childhoods and our sadness over MAC becoming lackluster and he totally made my day by telling me I'd made his. Why so inconsistent?   There were about as many MUA/SAs at the store as customers, and I'd see clumps of SAs in an aisle chatting away ... just left me irritated. The girl with whom I checked out was abrupt, then got quite and sweet once she saw I was rouge.  Which kind of pissed me off.  Again, shouldn't matter if I'm a first-time customer or a long-standing Rouge, customer service should be consistent and good.  If I wasn't going for gifts (have to say, love the fragrance samplers) and MUFE, I would have turned around and gone to Nordstrom's. Whenever I go there, they make me feel welcome.  They're not all over me, but I'm definitely not ignored.  Oh, and they give me samples, too.  Guess how many samples I got after dropping close to $200.  Go on, guess.  None.

Korres :( New product!?
I started using the korres milk cleanser about 6 months ago, and fell in love with this product! I literally did not have one pimple, or any skin concerns while using it. I then went into multiple Sephora's and they are no longer carrying korres!! Living in Canada, most websites I found that do carry it will unfortunately not ship outside of the U.S. I am seriously so sad this amazing line is not being carried anymore! I recently bought Caudalie milk cleanser (suggested by an employee) and am not super satisfied with it.. It almost feels like my skin is not completely clean! Does anyone have any suggestions on a new, preferably milky face wash!? Anddddd.. how is purity face wash!? P.s I have sensitive skin

I think what might be happening is Korres is trying to focus more on Beautlish & HSN. It's whatever their business deal is.  see post

Fake reviews.
I get the feeling that 70% of the reviews on Sephora.com are fake-- posted by the product distrubutor. I always click on the user and see if they've reviewed other items or not.. I mean, almost every product has at least 4 stars total. That seems a little unlikely. It bothers me.... Luckily they have a great return policy so you can try things out yourself. Thoughts?
