I hate to be one of those people who say I'm never shopping at Sephora again Blah blah blah. But I have just had the most HORRID experience at my local SIJCP store. I recently bought the Kat Von D lock it tattoo foundation online (42 no longer available in stores). Needless to say this foundation did not play nice with my dry skin so I headed to my local sephora packing slip in hand to return/find something different. However the associate wouldn't let me do it!! She was so snotty and rude to me I almost cried right there at checkout. I gave her my reciept and the foundation (still in the box) and she asked for my license and proceeded to tell me it wouldn't accept my return because I have returned too many items with no receipt.(she was acting so superior like I was some kind of clepto or scum of the earth) What?? Imagine my confusion because 1. I did in fact have my receipt in hand and 2. I have never returned something without the packing slip. She proceeded to inform me that the PACKING SLIP IS NOT A RECIEPT and therefore had to be processed as a return with no reciept. SInce I am not near a free standing sephora every online order I return goes back to this SIJCP store. SO needless to say I was unable to complete the return. I was so humiliated I turned and high tailed it out of there and didn't even get to redeem my $15 off of $50 that expires today. Up until now I have been a loyal Sephora customerr because of their generous return policy and I could have confidence that if I ordered something online and the product didn't work for me I could bring it back. Apparently is no longer the case..... Sorry for the super long rant, but I'm just so upset right now
I went to my local Sephora today and saw a bunch of NEW Sephora Favorites sets! Well at least, I believe they're new. I've only been a Sephora addict for a few months now. They are an essential oils set (face oil, hair oil, cleansing oil, body oil), set of 5 Sephora brand eyeliners, a new Favorites set, and a set of "glow" products like bronzers and High Beam. What new sets have you spotted recently and which are catching your eye?
I have this same problem with the Naked 2... I feel like all of the colors just get really muddy when you try to use them together. Anyone feel the same and/or have any suggestions? It's so much money that I feel like if I really don't love it, I'm just going to return it.
Tons of ELF gift sets at Big Lots today. Super cheap to begin with and on top of that they were discounted. Good stocking stuffers for those that like ELF. The large sets at the bottom were $10 and on sale for $7.75.
I was wondering what other people use to wash their pretty faces (besides Clarisonic). For a few years now, I use rolled cotton from the drug store for removing face masks. I just got turned onto muslin cloths as they feel slightly more exfoliating and not as messy (for cream cleansers). I'm scared of using cotton wash cloths on my face because of laundry detergent (even though I use a natural detergent) - maybe I'm paranoid. So what works for you?
I just ordered new foundation and other items yesterday at about 3 pm. Im in Baltimore. My UPS says it is already sitting on my doorstep since an hour ago. WOW! I know there is a distribution center here in MD but it has never been delivered so fast!!!! Go Sephora during the holidays! Now lets hope I got my Dior lipstick promo and not a sub.
This should be fun! I thought why don't we fill in the blanks of what we are primarily using right now. It would be fun to see the variety of answers! Foundation: Concealer: Eyeliner: Eyeshadow: Powder: Blush: Bronzer: Lipstick: Lipgloss: Mascara: Brows:
I'm just curious if anyone has been sent defective items by Sephora. I received a blush without its backing glued on. The Bobbi Brown blush was stuck to the mirror when I opened it. This has been my first time with a defective item from Sephora. I've made a lot of orders before and had never had a problem. I went to my nearby Sephora and they gave me a refund. They didnt have it in stock so oh well. I'll just order it tonight. Anyway, I'm just curious if f this has happened to anyone else?
I'm stuck on the Canadian page! For whatever reason, when I go to www.sephora.com, it brings up the Canadian page instead of the USA page. I live in the USA, so why's it doing that? (fyi- my personal info is correct. It's just distracting to see different pricing and not all of the products.)
I want to try the bars sheer glow foundation but i don't know what my shade would be. I'm NC44-45 because I'm tanned. Help please i don't want to pick the wrong shade, I'm confused between Syracuse and Tahoe.
the past two years I've been using CLINIQUE Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin however it's ingredients on sephora do show what it's formulated with out like harmful chemicals. I'm slowly doing research. It just so much haha>.<. Clinique has been the only moisturizer that does not break me out but I'm still a little ify on its chemicals. can anyone enlighten me(: or have suggestions? And great moisturiser? I'm on empty and wad going to pick up another moisture surge.
I was picking up some Christmas presents at my local JCP Sephora on Thursday. I bought the Tarte Lash set and then the JCP Sephora Favorites Lip set - total would of been $53. I used my $15 off $50 coupon, and then I had a $10 gift card, so my total came out to about $30 incl. tax. I paid with a $100 bill. Problem is my change was $15 short. I didn't notice until I got home. The store was really busy and the cashier didn't count out my change (she seemed new? She rung me up at $100 the first time somehow...) I stuffed my money back in my wallet and left. It says the correct change on the receipt but that's not what I got... Am I out of luck and just count it as lesson learned and pay with smaller bills? Or is there anything I can do?
I've compiled a list of gluten-free beauty products available on sephora.com.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein derived from wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. There are some cosmetics products labeled as gluten-free. If you are interested in these products look for statements like “gluten-free” or “no gluten” on the product package label. Because of periodic changes in product ingredient formulations and sources, for the most up-to-date information we recommend contacting brands directly regarding gluten-free status of their products.

Smashbox has advised that the following products do contain gluten; the rest of their line (with the exception of seasonal items such as palettes and limited edition products) are gluten-free.
Smashbox items which contain gluten:
Bionic Mascara (Jet Black), Layer Lash Primer, Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder (all shades), Doubletake Lip Color (Praline, Sugar Spice, Cranberry), Lip Treatment SPF 15
We cannot claim that any of our products are gluten free. Some of our products contain ingredients/source of gluten [wheat germ oil, vit E etc]. As all our products are produced by the same production line and although a very strict cleansing procedure is followed after every production, we have not the possibility to check our products for traces of eventually allergical ingredients in low-value (high-ratio) proportions [parts-per-million (ppm)]. Thus we cannot claim for our products that are gluten free.
Products which do not contain gluten as an ingredient-

As a student seeking to pursue art as a major and a makeup junkie, I've come to share with you how I mix the best of both worlds. First up; THE NIJI ROLL! I use this to carry my paint brushes and color pencils around, so I figured it would work very well as a makeup brush carrier too! Sadly, the slots are a bit small for kabuki brushes though I think I'll use this to also carry my mascaras, eyeliners, lip liners, and anything else narrow or pencil like. Now I've also seen this hype on the beauty blender hard brush cleaner. The first time I saw that I thought it was just an overpriced version of The Master's Brush Cleaner. I love it. It can somehow strip the oil off of a paintbrush when turpentine could not, yet still condition the brush. If you need to reshape your brush, you can keep the soap in your brush, let it dry the way you wanted it to be shaped, and wash it again after a day or two. And those blockbuster carrier cases that cost almost 200$? I swear to god this works almost exactly the same way. Or any carrier case actually. I'm pretty sure you can use art brushes as makeup brushes as well; some of them are very soft and durable. They're not cheap, but at least they don't cost 20$ a brush. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to go find an angled shader and liner brush for eyelining and a small sablette for the lips. Of course these wouldn't be the prettiest things in your vanity, but they're great if you want to save a dollar to spend more on actual makeup. These are all I can think of for now. I'll post more when I get other flashes of inspiration.
I neeeeeed this. It is 12/4 and X-mas is right around the corner. Why haven't they released the new set yet? Does anyone know when it will come out? A few weeks ago, someone on here posted a pic from instagram of the new set and it looked amazing! These make perfect gifts so I don't understand where it is. Last year I gave one to my mom and she LOVED it. Can a mod please share? Thank you!
Title says it all. I'm just looking for new amazing things to try and I would love to know your absolute favorites! And then just tell me why you love it so much! You can list as many as you want but don't list your whole make up/skin care/hair care/whatever else collections just the ones that really stood out in amazement to you when you first tried them all the way u till today. Im kind of a newby to trying out all sorts of things. I've only really tried out sephora so mine will be from there but you guys could choose anywhere. Okay 1. Dior lip balm lip enhancer Why I love it: I lovee my natural lips. So I don't want to cover up my natural color (which is a bit of a redish pink) I just want them to stand out a little more. The balm brings blood flow to your lips in the same way a mood ring does to take your natural color and make it brighter! Now I get compliments all the time with people "wow I love that color is that your natural lip color or lip stick"? 2. My origins brightening eye cream: really helps to make tired eyes look wide awake add a touch of concealer and bam it looks like you had perfect rest! 3. Lancôme xl mascara booster mascara base: love this stuff makes a hugeee difference with my mascara and you dont have to layer as much mascara because it gives you that great layered look with just one or 2 other mascaras so that saves a bit of money lol. That's my only loves so far like I said I haven't tried too much.
