After receiving a sample from Sephora, I have fallen absolutely in love with Flowerbomb. (Yes I know. I'm very late to the party). I placed a few small orders to get samples and it is no longer available as a choice at Sephora. I can't afford to purchase a bottle of the parfum at this time so if anyone knows of any stores offering it as a free sample with purchase could you let me know via PM or this post? If I can pick up an item that is in my budget at this time from one of those stores I will so I can collect a few more samples. Yes, I love it that much. Thanks ladies

Hi friends, wasn't exactly sure where to post this or if someone has already discovered this beautiful availability (sorry if I'm late to the party!), but it's back in stock!   http://www.sephora.com/le-rouge-n205-couture-editi on-15-us-P395543?icid2=Just_Arrived_makeup_sku_gri ...

Hi all,   I had no idea where to post this so I did it under the category of "Products".   I am having a hard time figuring out what to get my hubby for Father's Day.  It is of course a gift from myself and my son who is 23 months.    I have had ideas like a monogram/personalized wallet, personalized pillow, men's body wash or some kind of skin product.  But I am so undecided because my hubby is SO picky.  So I usually have a hard time getting him something that he would actually like.  lol.   Last year I got him a picture frame which he loved.  Now this year, I just have no idea.  I thought of getting something from Lush Cosmetics because I heard their stuff is amazing.  Only issue is that I am not sure how it smells as I have never been in their store and when you order online and need to return, you cannot return in store, you have to return back to the company or whatever and you have to pay for shipping.  I saw some stuff on Sephora as well for men, but undecided on things for that too. lol   I need A LOT of help on this...any suggestions on ideas or gift packages or something...anything? lol.

Does anyone know how to delete or update a review? I reviewed something and I do not know how came out to be 2 stars instead of 5!

 I like testing the color of the products before I buy them, the swatches on the website are great but I can never tell from them or the description if I'm going to actually like the color and if it will look good on me. I really want to try some of Nudestix magnetic eye color pencils, but the two closest stores that stock them are 2 hours away and crossing the border or 3 hours away. There are at least 28 Sephoras between those two locations that are easier to get to and closer to me, why can they distribute product availability more evenly? I get that the Canadian sephoras never have as much variety but there is 20 sephoras that could have been stocked with it closer to the Detroit area, instead of all the way in Lansing.

We already have a Sephora in London but I wasn't in to makeup when it opened so I don't know what to expect from the grand opening. Is it similar to a rouge event? Will there be any brand reps or deluxe samples? I'm considering taking the day off work but don't want to waste the vacation day if it's not worth it. Any advice is appreciated!

Where did the Bronze Bares All Sephora Favorites kit go? Instead of showing oos, it just disappeared. Will there be any more? Also, when will there be another Lip favorites kit? I loved the large one from last year.

I noticed that the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette is now "out of stock" and I was just planning on purchasing it. Is it coming back in stock any time soon, or will Sephora not be restocking it?

Has anyone tried the Boscia Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick?  I love Boscia's black skin-care line, but I've never used a stick or bar for cleansing. I'm hopeful one of the many awesome BTers has an opinion about this product!  TIA!! http://www.sephora.com/charcoal-deep-pore-cleansin g-stick-treatment-P396621?skuId=1706712

Hi. I was wondering what non-Sephora skin care lines everyone here loves. I have recently been checking out a lot of different lines, but I didn't realize how many there are! I am intrigued by a lot of them (Amarte, Cinq Mondes, Credentials, Dr. Loretta, Elemis, Eminence, Oxygenetix, Pevonia, PCA, Skinceuticals, Ultraluxe are examples) It's overwhelming. Has anyone tried and had great or terrible luck with any of these? A lot of the ones I am looking at are used in spas. My first thought was that a trained esthetician would know the best things for skin care, right? If anyone would be so kind to share I would appreciate it! I am also really curious about the makeup or skincare item that you all would love to try next (that you haven't tried before) at Sephora. Personally, when I get the funds, I would like to try Armani Lasting Silk Foundation, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder and Caudalie Vinexpert Night Infusion Cream. Thanks!

I use PTR Unwrinlke Peel Pads. I rinse after using so do I use those first then toner then essence? Or do the toner and essence negate the benefits of the Peel Pads?

In my latest order, I used a promo code to get make up for ever's step 1 skin equalizer deluxe sample in Mattifying Primer (black). However I got the nourishing primer instead (white). Is there anyway I can get the black sample? I want to try it before I buy it.

Hello fabulous community! I'm looking for great recommendations for self-tanner.  I work full time and we have two kids (4yr old and 11m old).  My husband is deployed and so I'm doing this parenting thing solo for a while.  I need something that dries quickly, and can be maintained easily. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you!

Hey Canadian beauties! I'm going to Canada for 9 days (Banff, Jasper, and Edmonton). I live in the USA and have only been to Canada once. Anything beauty related I should be on the lookout for in Canada? I know the biggest mall in North America is in Edmonton, but unfortunately most of my shopping time will be in Banff.   Thanks!

I've realized lately that the prices I associate with different beauty products has gone up considerably. I'm sure it doesn't help being in an environment (BT ) where people are throwing $80 at an eyeshadow palette or $40 on a lipstick like that's the standard going rate and if you ever want to wear lipstick in life, it's going to run you $40+.    I know this isn't everyone's reality, and as someone who used to only wear one make-up item - mascara ($30 Chanel mascara, no less) - I pass absolutely no judgment on what anyone wants to spend on any item!   But I'm curious... Knowing that whatever price you've come to associate with an item, it reflects what you, and only you, expect to pay for that item - what rough price point you associate with different beauty items?

Hi ladies, I am looking for a once a week peel and have been looking at these two. If you have experience with either one or both could you please share including which one you would recommend? Or maybe you would recommend something entirely different. I am open to suggestions. As always, thank you for sharing your knowledge.   Also how many peels do you get out of the Ole product?

Hi hi - anyone know of a lipstick for this color???

My daughter who is 22 has been having a few issues that are bothering her. First, let me tell you she is a minimalist. She doesn't wear makeup on a daily basis and her skin routine consists of washing, moisturizing, and spot treating acne bumps. She has oily but sensitive skin. She is bothered by her enlarged pores, skins ruddiness and breakouts and thinks the cleanser she has been using may be making it worse. She is also getting blackheads which she never had.  (She is currently using Innisfree jeju volcanic pore cleansing foam and seaweed mattifying day cream for her moisturizer). So, these are my thoughts: Have her begin using a charcoal cleanser to help clean the pores and make them appear smaller. If that seems to help, start having her rotate between the charcoal cleanser and an AHA cleanser to help smooth out her skin and help with the small amount of acne she gets. At that point I am thinking of having her try a moisturizer with retinyl palmitate 2 to 3 times a week at night to further help the texture of her skin.   My understanding is it is much milder than retinol. Please correct me if I am mistaken. I would have her continue to use her seaweed moisturizer (unless someone suggests something else)  on the other nights until her skin becomes acustom to the retinyl. Oh and she uses Murad 2.5% benzyol peroxide to spot treat her acne. I'm thinking she needs a stronger strength. Now, of course I would only have her start one product at a time to make sure it is working for her. If not, she would discontinue and try a different products. I know this will take time to implement but that is the best plan I could come up with to address the issues she is having. She does like to do face masks so she is looking for a good one or ones that will help her skin. So, I am 1. asking if this seems to be a good plan 2. if not, what would you change and 3. recommendations on the face washes, benzyol peroxide percentage, moisturizers, and masks. My goal is to have her get a good simple skincare routine down over the next couple months; wash, moisturize, spot treat acne, and face masks 2 to 3 times per week. Again, I would only start one product at a time and give it at least two weeks to see how her skin reacts. (Or less if it immediately reacts bad of course). Thank you all for your input. I truly value your opinions.

I've always wanted to try some of the Fresh bar soaps, but bar soaps (with the exception of Dove), have been known to dry my skin out. If I hate it, can I return it?  I know it's a tricky thing to deal with...

I see that this product has been re-listed on the site in the color No. 1:   http://www.sephora.com/5-camouflage-cream-palette- P12630?skuId=469221   My question is, will the variation called No. 5 with just the corrector shades (shown below) be returning as well?  I would very much like to buy it.
