Price adjustment on purchase?
Hi! I have a question regarding price adjustments. I purchased a Clarisonic Mia 2 on March 30th. I then received an email coupon for 15% off through April 10th. I called the 877 number and was told the only way to get a credit for the difference would be to return it and purchase it again with the coupon, since the coupon was not valid at the time of my purchase. Is there a way to do it without returning it? I also have a 20% off coupon from another retailer, but I would rather keep the product I already purchased. That $23 would really mean a lot to me =)

Airplane skincare advise
I'll be taking an overnight flight and wanted to get some tips on skincare to prevent my skin from drying out and breaking out.  My beauty advisor at Sephora recommended the Ole Henrikson making removing cloths followed by the Murad Clarifying wipes to remove makeup, sunscreen, and clean my skin.  I purchased these two items.  Then I was thinking about what to follow it with.  I was thinking of the Nude Overnight Mask or the Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Sleeping Mask.  Any opinions on the Nude mask vs the Amore Pacific Mask?  I've used the Nude mask (not on the plane), but never tried the Amore Pacific.  Also, do I need to use any other treatments or moisturizers before the mask?   Thanks!   http://www.sephora.com/nurture-me-tm-cleansing-clo ths-makeup-removing-P385344?skuId=1597178 http://www.sephora.com/clarifying-wipes-for-blemis h-prone-skin-P376081?skuId=1468271 http://www.sephora.com/moisture-bound-sleeping-rec overy-mask-P296442?skuId=1583053 http://www.sephora.com/advanced-renewal-overnight- repair-mask-P385678

Korres price increase
I was browsing around the Korres page to see the new stuff that has come in, and I noticed the price increase in my favorite, Wild Rose cream. I know prices increase every year, but a sudden $3 increase? Who am I kidding I'll still buy it ...ahh...why must I love it so much? I wonder how they determine which products/brands they'll increase pricing for?   On a side note, has anyone tried the new Black Pine line? I'm so tempted to try it. Korres is my favorite skincare brand, and it has never disappointed me!

Amazing Cosmetics Concealer - Wearing Off Quickly
I've been trying out a bunch of concealers lately to hide the few blemishes and mild/moderate acne scars on my face. My favorite so far is Amazing Cosmetics Concealer because it's the most opaque one I've ever used and covers perfectly on the first try. However, I notice that when I get home from work and look in the mirror the concealer has worn off.   Any advice on why this is happening? I don't use a primer (I'm hearing your gasps!) but I do use a setting powder everyday (MUFE's HD powder). I wouldn't think I'd need a primer because I've never used one before and haven't noticed this issue with any of the other concealers I've used. So is it me not using a primer, is there some other trick to help make it last all day, or is this a common occurrence with this concealer? Help me, beauty gurus!

Anyone want to swap?
I'm hoping to try and pare down my mass grave of products. I'm willing to ship first for people who have more hearts than me (just about everyone lol). If you are interested in a product I will take pictures of it for you to see and also weigh it on my kitchen scale so you'll know exactly how much product is left. I'm mostly hoping to find any Josie Maran product (!!), Philosophy Fresh Cream products, anything with sweet vanilla/sugar scents, anything with Argan Oil, and Agadir products. I'm open to other products as well   Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser (3/4 full) - Olive and Avocado Deep Conditioning Shampoo (used once) - Kerestase Christaliste Bain Cristal (used twice) - John Masters Haircare Zinc and Sage Shampoo (2/3 full) - 100% Pure Vanilla Bean Nourishing Body Cream (2/3 full) - Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel (1/2 full) - Kenra Platinum Silkening Gloss (used once) - Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil (used a few times) - Khiels Deeply Restorative Smoothing Hair Oil Concentrate (used once) - Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum (used once) - Moroccan Oil Treatment Oil (more than 3/4 full) - Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo (little more than 1/2 full) - Ojon Rare Blend Infusion Shampoo (2/3 full) - Wen Bamboo Green Tea (used once)

(The UPS man hates me!) Sooooo I need advice from you guys on how to organize them.  I will say my eyesight is awful so I cant read the colors on the bottom of the lippies.  I have an ikea table with 5 drawers with drawer organizers from bed bath and beyond, but they are getting full!  I noticed curiouscannible had hers in acrylic stackable thing.  Good idea but, should I organize them by brand, or color??

Becoming A Makeup Artist
Hello! My name is Karson, and I am a fifteen year old sophomore in high school. At this age all anybody ever asks me is "What do you want to be when you get out out of high school?" My answer is always that I would love to be a makeup artist. Whenever I tell people this, they laugh and say that I can't live off of being a makeup artist. But if makeup is my passion, I think I can prove them wrong. If people such as Wayne Goss, Jaclyn Hill, and Michelle Phan can do it…why can't I?    I have a few issues with proceeding to this career though. My family is very tight on money, even if I ask for drugstore makeup for my birthday my mother yells at me. Nobody is supportive about my decision. And there are no makeup classes for people my age in the area of where I live.    So, I come here for advice. How could I convince to my parents that makeup artistry is a career that I can gradually get into, and what should I do if they continue to be unsupportive?    I am also looking into colleges or schools to go to when I get out of high school but I don't know where to start. Should I be looking up cosmetology schools, or just plain makeup artistry schools?

PLEASE HELP!!
Hello, I am writing out of desperation so please do NOT disregard this and help if you can.   So a bit more than 2 months ago I was searching for toners, toners for GLOWING SKIN! I did a lot lot lot of research to find a good one with a big number of positive reviews and a couple of days into my research I found this toner that was reviewed by the community on Sephore!! (THANK YOU GUYS AT SEPHORA AS ALWAYS!!). But here is the very sad part. I fantasized about having the product day in day out and even had a routine ready which I would follow when I finally had the product but 6 weeks down the track when I finally wanted to order the tonner I HAD FORGOTTEN ITS NAME. I tried rigorously to find the product for literally HOURS every night 2 weeks straight and had no luck what so ever. I hate my self for it and I will never be able to forgive my self if I don’t find it. That’s how much I need it and that’s how much it means to me.   IF YOU LADIES WHO ARE READING THIS CAN HELP ME WITH THE NAME I WILL BE FOREVER INDEBTTED TO YOU aAND WILL LOVE YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.   So about the product, I do remember a couple of things. It was a WHITE bottle with a GOLDEN/YELLOWISH cap (has a really posh and expensive look to it!! All their products are like that white with golden caps). The BRAND NAME was the name of the CREATOR, the skin cosmetician himself, for example OLE HENRIKSEN (it’s the brand name and the name of the skin cosmetician who created it). The brand name was a EUROPEAN one…… It sounded more FRENCH if anything. It wasn’t one of the main stream ones we all know off like Loral Paris or Maybelline. The PRICE TAG was EXPENSIVE. Can’t really remember what it was but I think it was $100 and over. Probably the most important aspect I remember about the toner was the fact that it had OVER A THOUSAND REVIEWS and had a FOUR AND A HALF STARS rating. So it was reallllllyyyyy good   Once again please help me! I know and clearly understand that it is not your job to find it for me but I have tried EVERYTHING and this is my last HOPE.

Do You See What I See? It's Something New....Feel free to add your new, fun finds too.
It's something bold, something new, something (that should never be) borrowed, something (that comes in) blue!   It's Ciate LashLights - it's a lash tip mascara that has FullFlutterFoam Technology!! (sounds impressive) It comes in Nymph (green) Surreal (aqua) Famous (pink) and Electric (blue) I wish it came in a purple/aubergine color, which my green eyes favor.    What do you guys think of this? Will you try it? Have you tried it? What colors do you think you'd try? Will I give in and get it? and in what color? Any thoughts or 'tips'?   Please post any new interesting finds of your own, I don't always think to regularly check out all the new products, maybe this will be a fun way to share cool things we think are special finds - for better or for worse.   EDIT - Really? Why'd it break up my 'feel' in the thread title? It could not have been this users error! At least I don't think so. Sure, the one thing I can't change/edit. Dag Nabbit! Guess that's the eerily prophetic 'for worse' part I mentioned!   EDITED EDIT - oops, my bad. It showed up on my screen with 'FEE' on the 1st line and the 'L' on the 2nd line. But when I saw it posted 'feel' came out right, false alarm.

color IQ for lips?
I went to Sephora today for a supposed #mouthoff event that I came across online -- but the sales associates had no idea what I was talking about. :-( In any case, she told me that they are coming out with a sort of color match for lips that's in conjunction with the color IQ. It's not online yet, but they had a binder with all of the color IQ numbers and corresponding lip shade matches (in nudes, corals, plums, reds) sooo she showed me some a couple of my matches and found a gorgeous NARS satin lip pencil (majella) in a red that I was comfortable with/could actually pull off.   Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else has gotten a chance to try this out, or know any other details about this color IQ component making it online?
