I was really excited to try the Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets All-In-One BB Cream Skintone Corrector b/c they don't sell it in my store so I added it to my samples. When my package arrived I ended up with the shade Medium. I place a lot of orders so I assumed I had made a mistake and kind of ignored it. I placed a couple of orders a week later and saw the Dark sample was in stock so I ordered two more. I get my packages and once again I get a sample of the Medium. I know it's stupid b/c they're not items I paid for, but I'm annoyed that I didn't get the advertised shade after three attempts. If the product wasn't in my shade I would have picked up another sample instead. One I could use. I was looking at the samples today and I see the BB Cream in Dark is back. Just torturing me. Did this happen to anyone else?
I just wanted to say to all of the newcomers, welcome to BT, but you may want to be careful of the personal information you share on here as it is a public forum and is searchable through any search engine. That is the photos you post as well. I just wanted you all to be aware that anyone can use what you post for anything. Sephora also has access to all of your PM's as well and whatever identifying information in you BI account. Hope you have a great time like I do on this beauty forum.
It has been 2 months in 2014. Lot's of people don't have enough money to spend $350, let alone $1000. But a lot of people who are just Beauty Insiders willing to pay for the $60 collection. The major part of the Beauty Insiders are not VIB and Rouge. It would help Sephora with the selling of the product to open it to all. I know we all have to spend money for the special status, but nobody from sephora is saying when we can buy the collection. So there are people wanting to buy this product for even $100 but, can't.
So I've been wanting to try Sigma brushes for a while and just couldn't bring myself to spend so much on brushes. Then I saw that Jaclyn Hill was having her top 7 brushes in set for $90. So I did it. Yes, I bought the brushes! I am super excited for it to arrive. Anyone else order it? Any feed back on the brushes that are included in the set? *F80 Flat Kabuki *F86 Tapered Kabuki *F35 Tapered Highlighter *E55 Eye Shading *E25 Blending *E40 Tapered Blending *E30 Pencil
I've being trying to buy the illamasqua blushes in the color Katie and Tremble for a while now but they are always out of stock. Today I went into Sephora to see if they were finally back in stock but now they are not even there anymore. Does anyone know if the colors have been discontinued? Or is Sephora going to stop carrying illamasqua products?
Hello lovely BT ladies, I got a sample of this, and I love it! My question is this. Does this do the same as a clay face wash with microbeads or is this different? I use Philosophy Total Matteness Mask, and it's been my favorite for a while. Where would this fit in my routine if at all? 'Cause my routine as it is now is pretty long. http://www.sephora.com/the-microdelivery-exfoliati ng-wash-P184109?skuId=976399
I first started using La Mer products because I heard the "Creme de La Mer" which is the line's very popular rich cream worked miracles on scars and other sever marks on the face. I have severe acne scars at the moment so I took $160 bucks on a whim for an ounce of cream (which I do think is insane) but the "miracle broth" made from the aerospace physicist, Dr. Max Huber who had a terrible chemical accident on his own face that cause awful burns and scars, which is how and why he created "the miracle broth" which is now in all of La Mer's products. I am currently using the rich Creme de la mer, the tonic, the cleansing gel, the eye balm intense, and I couldn't say ENOUGH about La Mer's color cosmetics. Their FOUNDATION known as "THE TREATMENT FLUID FOUNDATION" which although is a bit pricey is is a skincare and foundation in one and is absolutely amazing and looks so flawless on the skin, along with their very rich and pigmented concealer. My favorite from their color cosmetic line along with thousands of other people that are in love with LA MER POWDER is known as their powder...which can be used as a setting powder because it comes in a beautiful translucent flawless color along with three or four other light shades. The powder is made with sea-borne minerals and for the price the amount of powder you receive is AMAZING!! I think that even though LA MER is VERY expensive...you actually get what you pay for and it actually DOES what is SAYS which is always reassuring when forking out the money for these luxe products and they truly do last a very long time too! Especially the cream because it is sooo rich you on need a little and I am one of those people that always "over do". Cannot say enough about this line I WISHH Sephora carried it, THEN I'd be completely and utterly in love!!

I was wondering what conditions will Sephora permanently remove a product from its website? Usually, the item(s) just show up as OOS and I can opt to email in when the item is back in stock. However, I don't believe the particular item I'm referring to was ever OOS to begin with? One day, it just disappeared from my loves list and the website. Specifically, I am talking about the Murad Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel. Thanks!
Hi I'm almost 15 and I have this really dark, raised mole almost on the middle of my forehead, a little bit to the right and just above my eyebrow. I've been covering since 5th grade with side bangs and they get extreemely annoying and I'm a freshman in highschool now and it's really time to grow them out or start pinning them up. I am soo tired of them, they get in my eyes, my best friends always imitate me sweeping them to the side every few seconds, and I know that it does not look good putting your bangs down every single day and never moving them. Only my family and my best friends have seen me with my bangs up and I really need that to change. So my mole is raised and I need a heavy full coverage concealer/foundation/whatever to hide it. I don't really care THAT much that people can still see a slight bump, I just want something to cover the darkness. So basically I want it fully concealed. I don't want to spend a lot of money on a little bottle of something so I was looking for something that actually works for under 30. PLEASE HELP!! I've never put foundation on or tried anything to conceal it...
Sephora need to randomly choose some of the VIB/ rouge to be mystery shoppers in the stores. Not the ones they frequent but different ones to see how they are treated. I will be the 1st to volunteer because i'm fed up with being misunderstood by some of these SA's!!! You wouldn't believe some of my horror stories. I wish I could secretly video and record some of my shopping experiences and send them to you. The sad thing is....I know I'm not the only one. Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I know I'm kind of late for this But.... better late than never! I was looking through the skincare section and came across this. Should I get it? I shouldn't get it? Anyone who purchased this during the 2x points on skincare, do you think it was worth the price? How much did you like the products? How long did the product last you? http://www.sephora.com/skin-cleanse-vol-2-P384804? icid2=sephorafavorites_Skincare_carousel_P384804_i ... Thanks everyone!
So I am feeling quite under the weather, and I am looking for a facial product (mist, mask ect.) or anything else you can recommend as a little pick me up. I am thinking something invigorating to make me feel less out of it. I am interested in something around or less than 50$. I want some little luxury to make me feel better lol!
PoesRevy is a Hall of Famer! She is amazing and deserves recognition! She is always supportive, encouraging, and kind. She's also knowledgeable (great product recommendations) and a wonderful person! Certainly worthy of the sparkling hearts !! Ps. no worries about hearting this post, just give lots of hearts to any messages PoesRevy posts on this thread to show her lots of luv!!
I need your advice........I really like the pencil brush E30. I was looking for a pointed brush to apply shadow on my lower lash line and a brush for my outer eye and crease. And a blending brush of course. This set seems to be the best value. I do not see any reviews on their site so I'm turning to my fellow BT'ers.
Hello ALL! I'm thinking about putting my Clarisonic in a Traveling Sephora Box! But what I would like to do first is to CLEAN IT THOROUGHLY... I'm not planning on putting my brush head in there, just the Clarisonic itself with the charger. How do you clean the area where you mount the brush head? Is it safe to submerge that part in water? Yay or nay?
Hi Ladies and Gents! I fell in love with the dior hydralife bb cream and now I'm looking for a foundation! Naturally, the dior foundation line caught my interest. I am wondering what the difference is between the Dior Nude and Dior Forever Flawless? I am looking for a light to medium coverage foundation for DRY skin. I would say my main concern is hydration more than coverage. I basically want something a bit heavier than BB cream for the days that I need it, but my skin generally does not need heavy coverage. I really liked the hydration of the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, but the coverage was way more than I needed. Any other suggestions would be much appreciate as well Please and thank you!
I just saw this for the first time today The item number for this item is 1507352. It's really a bit strange looking and I was just really curious to see if any of my bt buddies have used it yet. I don't have really any experience with this type of liner and wondered if the 'packaging/housing' of this might make application easier or more difficult. Thanks all.
Rant ahead! But it gets positive at the end. So yesterday I went into my local JCP Sephora [Springfield, VA] to get a color IQ done so I could find the proper BB cream/tinted moisturizer for my cruise and exchange a rollerball [thought it was the right one for my mom, but nope]. So I go in at about 3:45pm right after work, it had been a long day and my kids were being rougher then usual [I'm a teacher] and I figured buying something may make me feel better. When I get into the store the consultant [it's just one] is checking out a couple, and just kinda glances at me when she's done. An older woman comes in, buys something, and after that ordeal [which took about 15 minutes as she was...interesting] she finally said hello and asked if I needed anything. I told her I wanted a color IQ and she asked if I wouldn't mind waiting as it was almost time for her to get off and the next woman could help me. Ok, that's fine, no problem there. The problem comes when 15 minutes later the two of us are still just standing around not talking while I'm looking around. Plus, she gets on the phone and starts talking in Spanish about the customer who just bought the clarisonic. While you' are speaking another language, you probably still shouldn't be talking negatively about customers while a customer is in the store, just saying. The other woman comes in and the two of them start chatting immediately about the girls eye shadow, which is fine, took another 10 minutes, but whatever. So finally the new woman asks me if I'm ready for the IQ and I say yes. She does my IQ which is a different shade from last time [1R13 and it's now 1Y13], I tell her I want a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer and she tells me there aren't any on the list. She asks if I want to look at the list myself and I say sure and go to take a peek, this is when things get sour. The consultant that was helping me says, "I'll be right back." and goes to chat with the young woman who was supposed to be getting off. I wait, and I wait, and I wait, and I wait some more. Getting tired of waiting I go grab a tinted moisturizer in my old shade, something that matched my new shade [A BB cream that WAS on the list], applied them both, listened to them talk to a man frequented the store and looked great in his new powder apparently, tried on a lipstick, got the UD meltdown makeup remover, took everything off, waited a few more minutes, and left. No one said a thing to me, asked if I was ok, came back to check on me, nothing. Oh, and did I mention the manager walked in right before my color IQ started and was at the counter talking with the two ladies the entire time? And by talking to, I mean listening to the girl who was supposed to be getting off talk about a customer she had earlier that day. I left the store at 4:50, so the entire ordeal took about an hour. Where things get positive. Later that night I go to visit the Pentagon Sephora, this time bringing along my roller ball and old foundation to do an exchange. There I met the most awesome, or she's now on my list anyway, consultant ever, Elissa! She cleaned and moisturized my face prior to my color IQ [which no one had done the two times I had had it done before] and then took my number [2Y12]. Even after she was done though we talked and talked and talked. She loves internet brands, tumblr, and rock music, so we had a lot to talk about as I to love those things. When one of her frequent customers came in asking about acne stuff she didn't mind that I made suggestions to the girl at all and the three of us just had a really good time. Over all, she was amazeballs and I can't wait to go back and see her and talk to her. TLDR; Springfield, VA Sephora made me mad, went to Pentagon, had an awesome experience.
