They are now available for purchase for rouge members.  I didn't know they would come up with 2 different palettes and it took me completely by surprise. my wallet was not prepared for this! I am so weak to my Vices.   If you could get only one vice palette this year, which one would you choose?

Hi - I was wondering if anyone has tried this yet. I did see a few reviews but didn't get enough info from them, plus it's always nice to chat 'personally' with bt girlfriends about things like this.   It says there's "fragrance' listed in the ingredients, but it didn't list anything that gave me a good idea of what the 'fragrance' is - didn't list menthol or peppermint oil or anything like that. Can anyone tell me more about the flavor/fragrance of this? Some of you know fragrance can be a real deal breaker for me (just a whiff can cause major headaches) Anyone have some inside info?   The colors look beautiful and I'm always on the look out for a new & better plumper - so any info you could share about any facet of this pretty plumper would be most appreciated. Thanks all.

Hello lovely people! I currently live overseas and I need help with a foundation colour match before I purchase an item online. I've super curious about Too Face's Cocoa powder foundation. I have never bought foundation from any brand that Sephora carries so I cant use their foundation database but I'm an NC20 for MAC's studio fix foundation. Can anyone make a suggestion? Or if you are also an NC20 and have the cocoa foundation what colour do you have? Thanks!! Happy shopping!

I bought Laura Mercier foundation about a month ago and I finally tried it, but it breaks me out.    I didn't keep the packaging and receipt because Laura Mercier products never broke me out, but this one did.    So can I still return this even if I don't have packaging and receipt?

I've been waiting for these for months--I love the Sephora favorites sets! They were just posted and when I initially saw them, I was thrilled. However, they are SO similar to last year--almost the same exact products. I was hoping to see some newer items as a lot has been released over the last year. A lot of money saved, I guess. I'm still holding out for a larger lip one...here's to hoping that'll be great!

Am I the only one who never has questions answered when they participate in a BT chat with experts? I realize that that there many many questions asked and they can't get to everyone, but today I had the third question posted and it was completely skipped over. Pretty bummed about today since I asked a specific question about production application (which isn't listed on the product packaging, website, etc.). I suppose I could email customer service but it would have been nice to hear it from the expert. With only an hour to answer questions, it's certainly not enough time. Perhaps we could submit our questions ahead of time and answers could be posted the day of and the expert could spend the hour going into more detail about questions they want to specifically address. Seems like there must be a better way to do this!

Just saw this, and it's adorable!  I haven't tried the Thirstymud Mask yet, but I love that it comes with two of the mini jars.

Shoppers I have a short story to share regarding my quick morning at my local Sephora.   It was about 10:30AM, when I walked in. I walked over to the popular eyeliner display and grabbed a Stila ALL DAY liquid liner. I then wandered and browsed around. I stopped by the BITE display and saw that they did not have the Deconstructed Rose products anymore. At this time, a SA comes up and asks if I needed any help. I asked if they still carry them, not knowing that it has been totally discontinued. They SA told me that she has not even heard of it, but she was going to check her computers to inventory. They did not have any, which was fine by me because I was just wanted to see if I can get lucky. She was extremely nice and apologetic about it. When I got to checkout, I was going to return A DUO MAT without receipt because it was too light, but barely used and I wanted to buy the eyeliner. The SA scanned the eyeliner for $20, and the DUO MAT for $34. He said he would do the return first, then use the store credit to cover the eyeliner, which was completely fine by me. Now let us do some elementary math. $34-$20=$14. So I should be getting that and tax back on a store credit card. Well, he then proceeds to tell me that I owe him about $8 for the eyeliner. Uhh... so either he completely relied on the computer or he could not do basic math? Nope, he charged me twice, and seemed legit-ly confused when I asked why do I have to pay when the DUO Mat is more expensive. He looked at the receipt, noticed what he did wrong, and handed me the store credit card and apologized. I wasn't even mad though. I asked if the remaining balance would be on the card and he assured me it will be. I just called the gift card hotline, and guess what? The card has a balance of $0. I spoke with a rep, she looked up my card and said that it was activated, then charged again. AND all I can do is call the store. I called the store. They told me to bring in the card again with the receipt so they can give me a new card. Well now that's grand. BUT luckily, I forgot to buy some Koh Gen Do today, so I was planning on going back anyways.   NOW another reason why my love for Sephora is ever so slightly dropping has to do with my recent ULTA purchase. There was a 20% off deal over at Ulta recently. I took the opportunity to buy a new epilator. I got the GWP that contains 15 samples and a baggie, and the two different sets of Smashbox minis that Ulta gave out during the beauty break, however I forgot to use the free play points for $3 off. BUT I'm not mad either. SOO fast forward 1-2 days. I get my email that my package has shipped. I went back to my Ulta account to get the tracking code cause my trigger finger deleted the email. Of course I can find the email in my trash folder, but considering the hot mess in there, checking Ulta would be sooo much easier/faster. To my very big surprise, my order total is $0.00. The epilator I thought I bought was out of stock. So instead of canceling my order, I THINK Ulta shipped out all the freebies only. I checked my credit card statement, and Ulta did not charge me for anything. The Ulta package is supposed to come on Friday, so until then...   I will be going to Sephora tomorrow or Wednesday to solve the credit issue. AND when the Ulta package comes, I will see if they really put in all the freebies or if they decided to send me an empty box...   Rant over. Have a good day now!

I feel bad because I know that I miss responses to my comments or questions.  And I forget about threads I've joined. Is there a way to track things on Beautytalk? Thanks!

I wasn't able to post these questions on the product page so I'll ask here:   Can this be used with a retinol? Also, could it be used near the eye as a preventative treatment?I'm 24 so am just looking for preventative rather than repair.

Call me crazy but isn't this a bit out of their price point at $48?  Are they trying to go higher end?   http://www.sephora.com/make-yourself-youthful-6-in -1-super-serum-P389007?skuId=1630342

Does Sephora sell this because I can't find it on the website...

Has anyone picked this as one of their free samples and actually received it??? I have placed several orders over the last couple of weeks and each time I choose this sample I never receive it. Although my order shows it listed, my packing slip says general sample so they throw in something completely different.   I know if they are OOS they usually add a different sample but it continues to show as a choice. The only thing I can think of is that the warehouse where my orders are fulfilled they dont have this sample.   So I was just curious if this is happening to anyone else or have they actually been lucky enough to receive it. I have been wanting to try this for a while now. Does anyone use it and is it worth the money?

Hey everyone, I have been exclusively using the Laura Mercier Oil-Free Supreme Foundation for the past 5 years. It was discontinued last month and I have been searching for a similar full coverage foundation. I have gotten some good recommendations for full-coverage foundations from Sephora employees but nothing has really been comprable. So I am seeking out anyone who was also devastated by the discontinuation of the Oil-Free Supreme to give me suggestions for what is the MOST similar. My color was vanilla beige for reference. Thanks! Nikki

I've read so many things of orders getting cancelled if you place too many orders in a day, or a week. So is there a limit of how many orders you can place within the same day or week?   I've read other posts on people orders getting canceled but didn't see if there was really a limit or anything.    Thanks for your help!

I am getting married soon, and I am looking for some really good skin care products to add to my routine in the mornings and/or at night. I have combination skin with minor acne, but I really would like my skin to be at its best on my wedding day - especially when things start to get stressful a couple weeks before! Any other products to reduce fine lines, dark circles, puffy eyes - would also be appreciated     I was wondering if anyone had any preferred brands, products, etc. that you think would do the trick!...and make-up suggestions...whatever advice you have to offer I will definitely take into consideration!    Thanks so much in advance!

I noticed they removed the banner from the homepage and there was no new addition to the sale section this morning. I guess it's over now!J Time to save until the holiday kits come in!

I'm not sure if this counts as solicitation since I'm mentioning a website, so please delete if not allowed.  But every once and a while I do some BSTing online and I end up with lots of money in my PayPal.  Of course I want to spend it at Sephora.  I like to...ummm...keep it secret from my husband and avoid transferring it into the bank account.  I was always frustrated that I couldn't spend it directly at Sephora.com and I would end up gifting it to my sister, who would give me cash.   But anyway, I just discovered the website Gyft, where you can use your PP balance to buy gift cards (electronic, I believe) to stores and Sephora is one of them!  After some searching, I confirmed that they they are legit.   I thought this would be helpful for those of you who like to use your PP balance to buy stuff.   EDIT: juicytulip just pointed out "I do the same, although here on the Sephora site you can buy an egiftcard and check out with paypal. Cuts out the middle man! I usually send the gift card to myself--obviously." Thanks lady!   I was totally unaware of this.  So you don't even have to go to Gyft and create an account or anything, you can go through Sephora's site.

Whenever I try to make a reservation for a makeover, it always says there's no stores in or around San Francisco. It only works on one search engine as well. Am I typing it wrong or something?

So I was surfing BT a little and I get a pop-up (at least I think it was a pop-up, maybe i accidentally clicked the button at the bottom lol) that says "Favourite thing about Sephora.com? What new feature should we add?"   Here is my response.   "Sephora treats their Canadian customers horribly. I understand that we have to pay taxes and now duties (geez thanks) - and that's fine. BUT, our minimum $ amount for free shipping is $75! Whilst our American counterparts' minimum is only $50. Also the markup on the products is ridiculous! I know that there is an exchange rate but I also know that it is NOT THAT MUCH! (and all the prices vary in markup, hence how i know that it's mainly markup and not just the exchange rate). Not to mention things like the fragrance sets. We don't get the voucher for the free purfume of our choice, but Americans do?! How the heck is that fair?!?! Basically, treat us Canadians better - or we'll just spend our money elsewhere, and Sephora - you will be become our last resort."
