They are now available for purchase for rouge members.  I didn't know they would come up with 2 different palettes and it took me completely by surprise. my wallet was not prepared for this! I am so weak to my Vices.   If you could get only one vice palette this year, which one would you choose?

My love for Sephora continues. I was sent a comped, brand new, full sized Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel (launching 08-26-14) to review. I will use it for the first time tonight, so check back to this post if the product interests you.

I am fortunate enough to live next to several Sephora locations so I can stop by to test out a product in person or ask for samples in stores.  However, for people who shop online because they don't live near a Sephora or for homebodies like myself, wouldn't it be great if we could receive samples of almost anything on the website instead of the small selection of samples we are confined to?  I think sometimes people who don't have access to a store or for items that are only sold online, offering samples or foundations and skin care online could help reduce the amount of returns.  Even if it's for a small fee I think that would be reasonable.  CRC lets you purchase small samples of various foundations online to test the color/finish.  I highly doubt Sephora will start doing this -_- but does anyone else think this would be more convenient?  Also, this might help avoid incidences when your samples or point perks are substituted with something you really don't want.

With my last few shipments I noticed that Sephora started using OnTrac for rouge free three day shipping. I don't like the OnTrac online tracking system because it doesn't list an estimated delivery date. So how am I supposed to know if my package is.... on track?   If anyone has any advice on how to fix this, I would love to hear it.

Hi all! Question on order of product application - should I be using the PTR Retional Fusion PM before or after Clinique Acne Gel? Can I also use the Clinique Dark Spot corrector somewhere in this routine? All of it should go before moisturizer, right?   I am trying to both treat current acne breakouts and prevent more in the future, as well as try to lighten dark spots caused by previous acne. I've always been a little confused regarding the order of things and figured I should ask.   Thanks!

I am 30 years old and have pretty dark under eye circles. What is the best eye cream/serum/treatment?

Not that anyone probably cares…with the new holiday stuff up…but Sephora restocked the sale page and KVD Saint is back along with the other sale stuff that sold out.  Yes, I'm more drawn to the new holiday stuff too…but figured I'd point it out.   http://www.sephora.com/true-romance-eyeshadow-pale tte-saint-P292313?skuId=1325083

Just saw this, and it's adorable!  I haven't tried the Thirstymud Mask yet, but I love that it comes with two of the mini jars.

Mine definitely has to be Philosophy's Fresh Cream. It smells like you're covering yourself with the tastiest piece of cake you've ever eaten. It makes my showers that much more fun       What's yours?

So right now I am using the bareminerals power multitasking power (not sure the exact name). But I am looking for something a little stronger. I have somewhat noticeable circles under my eyes. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hi - I was wondering if anyone has tried this yet. I did see a few reviews but didn't get enough info from them, plus it's always nice to chat 'personally' with bt girlfriends about things like this.   It says there's "fragrance' listed in the ingredients, but it didn't list anything that gave me a good idea of what the 'fragrance' is - didn't list menthol or peppermint oil or anything like that. Can anyone tell me more about the flavor/fragrance of this? Some of you know fragrance can be a real deal breaker for me (just a whiff can cause major headaches) Anyone have some inside info?   The colors look beautiful and I'm always on the look out for a new & better plumper - so any info you could share about any facet of this pretty plumper would be most appreciated. Thanks all.

Hello lovely people! I currently live overseas and I need help with a foundation colour match before I purchase an item online. I've super curious about Too Face's Cocoa powder foundation. I have never bought foundation from any brand that Sephora carries so I cant use their foundation database but I'm an NC20 for MAC's studio fix foundation. Can anyone make a suggestion? Or if you are also an NC20 and have the cocoa foundation what colour do you have? Thanks!! Happy shopping!

I wasn't able to post these questions on the product page so I'll ask here:   Can this be used with a retinol? Also, could it be used near the eye as a preventative treatment?I'm 24 so am just looking for preventative rather than repair.

I am currently looking for a cc cream that has anti-aging properties. One with light to medium coverage and for combination skin type. Any recommendations?

I've been waiting for these for months--I love the Sephora favorites sets! They were just posted and when I initially saw them, I was thrilled. However, they are SO similar to last year--almost the same exact products. I was hoping to see some newer items as a lot has been released over the last year. A lot of money saved, I guess. I'm still holding out for a larger lip one...here's to hoping that'll be great!

I bought Laura Mercier foundation about a month ago and I finally tried it, but it breaks me out.    I didn't keep the packaging and receipt because Laura Mercier products never broke me out, but this one did.    So can I still return this even if I don't have packaging and receipt?

I love reading reviews on products, and find myself sorting by least favorable and starting there.  I use Amazon like crack, and love the ability to see if someone is a verified buyer of a particular product.  Now Ulta has the same thing (or maybe I just didn't notice it before)!  I was reading a review for shampoo and noticed a 'verified buyer' symbol and I tend to find those reviews a little more credible.  Especially with the explosion of shills for Tarte, I'd love to see that same thing implemented here.   Sephora should take advantage of the BI program.  They track what we buy online and in stores so they have the means to do it!   So, come on, Sephora!  Please find a way to identify a reviewer as a verified buyer of the product.  I think all of us BIers will thank you.

Am I the only one who never has questions answered when they participate in a BT chat with experts? I realize that that there many many questions asked and they can't get to everyone, but today I had the third question posted and it was completely skipped over. Pretty bummed about today since I asked a specific question about production application (which isn't listed on the product packaging, website, etc.). I suppose I could email customer service but it would have been nice to hear it from the expert. With only an hour to answer questions, it's certainly not enough time. Perhaps we could submit our questions ahead of time and answers could be posted the day of and the expert could spend the hour going into more detail about questions they want to specifically address. Seems like there must be a better way to do this!

I feel bad because I know that I miss responses to my comments or questions.  And I forget about threads I've joined. Is there a way to track things on Beautytalk? Thanks!

Shoppers I have a short story to share regarding my quick morning at my local Sephora.   It was about 10:30AM, when I walked in. I walked over to the popular eyeliner display and grabbed a Stila ALL DAY liquid liner. I then wandered and browsed around. I stopped by the BITE display and saw that they did not have the Deconstructed Rose products anymore. At this time, a SA comes up and asks if I needed any help. I asked if they still carry them, not knowing that it has been totally discontinued. They SA told me that she has not even heard of it, but she was going to check her computers to inventory. They did not have any, which was fine by me because I was just wanted to see if I can get lucky. She was extremely nice and apologetic about it. When I got to checkout, I was going to return A DUO MAT without receipt because it was too light, but barely used and I wanted to buy the eyeliner. The SA scanned the eyeliner for $20, and the DUO MAT for $34. He said he would do the return first, then use the store credit to cover the eyeliner, which was completely fine by me. Now let us do some elementary math. $34-$20=$14. So I should be getting that and tax back on a store credit card. Well, he then proceeds to tell me that I owe him about $8 for the eyeliner. Uhh... so either he completely relied on the computer or he could not do basic math? Nope, he charged me twice, and seemed legit-ly confused when I asked why do I have to pay when the DUO Mat is more expensive. He looked at the receipt, noticed what he did wrong, and handed me the store credit card and apologized. I wasn't even mad though. I asked if the remaining balance would be on the card and he assured me it will be. I just called the gift card hotline, and guess what? The card has a balance of $0. I spoke with a rep, she looked up my card and said that it was activated, then charged again. AND all I can do is call the store. I called the store. They told me to bring in the card again with the receipt so they can give me a new card. Well now that's grand. BUT luckily, I forgot to buy some Koh Gen Do today, so I was planning on going back anyways.   NOW another reason why my love for Sephora is ever so slightly dropping has to do with my recent ULTA purchase. There was a 20% off deal over at Ulta recently. I took the opportunity to buy a new epilator. I got the GWP that contains 15 samples and a baggie, and the two different sets of Smashbox minis that Ulta gave out during the beauty break, however I forgot to use the free play points for $3 off. BUT I'm not mad either. SOO fast forward 1-2 days. I get my email that my package has shipped. I went back to my Ulta account to get the tracking code cause my trigger finger deleted the email. Of course I can find the email in my trash folder, but considering the hot mess in there, checking Ulta would be sooo much easier/faster. To my very big surprise, my order total is $0.00. The epilator I thought I bought was out of stock. So instead of canceling my order, I THINK Ulta shipped out all the freebies only. I checked my credit card statement, and Ulta did not charge me for anything. The Ulta package is supposed to come on Friday, so until then...   I will be going to Sephora tomorrow or Wednesday to solve the credit issue. AND when the Ulta package comes, I will see if they really put in all the freebies or if they decided to send me an empty box...   Rant over. Have a good day now!
