Why do I keep seeing the Boscia mask duo only to have it tell me it's sold out? My friend wrote to Sephora asking if it was still in stock about two weeks ago and was told they no longer carried it and she should look at dif masks. If this is the case why is Sephora still putting up the products in the sale section? I've been stalking it for weeks! Has anyone had luck in purchasing this recently?

Let me just start off by saying that I absolutely love all of the Glamglow masks!   However, my two most favourite masks are the Supermud Clearing Treatment and the Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment.   Can anyone let me know if this is a good routine for both masks: I feel it would be very beneficial to have a clearing treatment and a deep cleanse in one regime. I was thinking of using the Supermud every Wednesday and the Powermud every Sunday... is this a good regime or is using both masks once a week too much for the skin? Let me know! All input is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!   Ps, my skin type is combination oily, acne prone, and dehydrated.

I love Sephora, and makeup and I don't mean to rant but this is annoying! Although I am only 16 I have spent over $650 at Sephora in the past year or so! And I find it intolerable when workers are rude or judgmental based on my age! I have been followed around the store and completely watched for my age to completely ignored for it! I have been given great service at Sephora, but recently it has become worse and I honestly don't know what I should do about it!

I'm always on the lookout for fun pretty sets for gift giving - like the ones Sephora launches every Fall. Do you guys have your favorite-ever pretty sets? I loved the 2013 Sephora set (the one that opened like a vanity and I'm pretty much in love with the Pupa dolls that have been around for a couple of years...

I'd really like to see Paul & Joe, Anna Sui, and Les Merveilleuses de Laduree at Sephora. I know that Sephora Champs Elysees has Les Merveilleuses as well as the Sephora across the street from Galleries Lafayette in Paris.

I tend to lean toward lighter more neutral shades but sometimes have fun with an eyeliner, like in grayish purple or mossy green ( thank you Urban Decay!) and I always go big on mascara. Any advice or new  ideas? Thank you!

  I love the scent of the baby products - baby wash, lotion and powder  I know that the shampoo is a bit less effective than the "adult" versions but does that apply to the washes as well?  is the baby wash enough?

I didn't have my card at the time, and they couldn't find me in the system for some reason. Am I able to redeem my points from the receipt?

I just ordered a product and the first time I entered my expiration date incorrectly, so I then corrected this and placed my order. But on my bank account it shows that I was charged twice for the order?

Do we have any solid information as to whether there will be special pricing when buying bundles of the new MUFE Artist Shadows?   This is from Temptalia's recent post:   "If you buy two or more shades, plus the duo compact, it’s $34 ($17/each), and if you purchase three shades with the trio palette, it’s $44 ($14.67/each). The boutique said they were charging $14.33/each after 3."   This is no currently showing up, but she mentions in a reply to a comment that she was informed by MUFE that:    " When I asked MUFE about the discount not showing, they followed up and said it would be effective August 1st."   Is this accurate?

Let's say, hypothetically, that I'm going to Japan and will be able to buy anything I want....... what would be something awesome to get that we don't have here? I know there's the Maison Laduree rose petal blush (I'm really hoping it's not as expensive there) and Guerlain Meteorites Aquarella, maybe? Anything else?   ps. If there are any amazing places/food I MUST see/eat, let me know, too. =)

*Apologies if someone has posted about this already, I did a search but didn't see anything.   Just finished watching Caroline Hirons new video (I know she is a rather "polarizing" guru but that's besides the point!) and she mentioned as one of her recent skincare favorites the new Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. I hadn't even heard of this yet so I did a search and found it on Sephora's site! No reviews there yet so I wanted to come over to BT to see if any of you have seen/heard of/tried this yet!   It looks amazing, and I am a huge fan of the Pure Truth line in general. It's also not terribly expensive compared to some other cleansing balms (which this seems to be similar to).   http://www.sephora.com/pure-truth-tm-melting-clean ser-P388265   It has vitamin C, rose hip oil, and like the rest of his products no sulfates/parabens.   Thoughts??

Just wanted to share my excitement. Sephora is opening it's first store in Australia within the next 12 months. My nearest store will be less than an hour airplane ride away..lol! My first order in Australia will be the Sephora Favorites Rollerball set. That is all.

Okay so in looking for a new toner, I noticed that so many now come in spray form. I've always applied my toner with a round cotton pad. Has anyone tried using the spray kind? Which do you prefer?

I was told by a SA at Sephora that I don't need serum with this night treatment. She also recommend to put oil (OH pure truth activating oil I got in a value kit) before OH invigorating night treatment. I'm I wrong to think beauty oils must be put on face after serum/treatment? Thank you guys for your help!

So, on a whim I decided to give Estee Lauder Bath Oil a try last night.  Let's just say, the fiance wasn't a massive fan, but I was pleasantly surprised!  It is the scent that my grandmother does use, and at a whiff, I do get his point that it smells old lady-ish, but it is also very complex.  If you don't stick around to deconstruct the notes it isn't nearly as enjoyable!  I was getting hints of rose, woods, and incense with a hint of tuberose.  I am quite happy, maybe not an everyday scent, but I like it!   The only problem with these complex scents is it's also very easy to overdo it, you know, the "drop a drop a drop of glue, any more is too much glue" poem definitely goes hand in hand with perfume.  Admittedly, I did overdo it a smidge last night lol!

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.

Take a look... It's not on Sephora's "what's new" section yet nor the "view all" section of Too Faced brand but if you are on the Too Faced home page and scroll over the "what's new" of Too Faced its there.   http://www.sephora.com/ill-stop-world-melt-with-yo u-fall-2014-full-face-collection-P388105?icid2=too ...
