Does anyone else think there should be categories for loves?
I would like a different category in my loves for at least all of the main groups: skincare, makeup, fragrance, hair nails, etc. It would be really cool if we could name our own categories. Who's with me?

PRO DISCOUNT
I understand Sephora can't offer a pro discount on all the brands they carry but couldn't they offer one on their house brand?  I love their Pro line of brushes and would love to stock up on them for my kit but they are sooooo expensive I just can't afford to.

PTR Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask
Hi, all!  In the mail today, I received a card from my SiJCP for a free deluxe sample of the PTR Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask.  Did anyone else receive this?  It says it's for BIs only.  Has anyone tried this mask?  What's it like?

What does it take to work at Sephora?
My interest in makeup has been steadily increasing for about 2 years now - I  love experimenting with colors and application techniques! Walking into a Sephora store is like heaven for me and my friends and family think working there would be a perfect fit!   I would love to work at Sephora but t he expertise of the employees and artists there is pretty intimidating. Can anyone who works/worked there let me know what the qualifications to apply/work there are?   Feel free to comment or direct message me! Thanks in advance

"Feel better" beauty gift ideas?
one of my fellow beauty obsessed girlfriends has been feeling under the weather lately and instead of getting her flowers or cookies I figured why not something I know she'll love: beauty products! So my question is for you fellow BTers, what product do you think says "feel/get better soon" the most Please let me know of any pamper product you use when you're feeling a little down (i.e. allergies, stress, lack of energy)

Is it possible to get a sample of a product which is only available online?
I really want to try Eve Lom's moisture mask but that brand is only available online. I have a very sensitive skin so I had to return lots of prodcuts before when I had purchased them without trying them.  I do not want to do that because I am lazy but also because I do not want to open a new one and put my finger in it and then return it.  That's just bad. So I want to know if I can get a sample of Eve Lom's mask somehow?

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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?

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
