I'm on the Sephora Facebook page and notice they have a Bumble and Bumble promo for FB Fan Friday.  Two mini bottles of shampoo and conditioner plus a little pouch to hold it.  Cute, right?   Then I read some of the comments:     ::record stops::   You're telling me you're "sorry that the image looks larger than what is included"?  I think what Sephora meant to say was, "Sorry the image is completely different from what you're getting."  This isn't a case of you getting a 1.0 oz bottle instead of a 2.0 oz bottle.  This is a case of you getting two foil packets over a 2.0 oz bottle. HUGE discrepancy, highly unprofessional, unethical, and super illegal.   That's like seeing a picture of a real car on craigslist and getting a Hot Wheels car instead!   Just to reiterate, what Sephora is advertising is this:   And what you're getting is this:   Sephora is really sorry that the image seems bigger in the picture though!

Hearts posted an awesome picture of one of her local Sephoras and it got me thinking - What does Sephora look like around the world? My store is tiny and cramped in comparison to some of the images I found via a Google search - but it's my store - it's comfy and I feel at home there, so I love it regardless. But how awesome would it be to go to one of these other stores?!   Check this out (pictures posted below in thread):

I have been seeing mixed reviews about this product.. Some people are saying it transfers onto clothing others say it dries up in the bottle fast... But it looks like such a fun product I want it to be great haha.. Was wondering if anyone has some experience with the product that can talk me out or preferably in to buying it.

I was just thinking the other day, how drastically my shopping habits have changed from 10 years ago, when there weren't really many easily accessible online resources for honest beauty reviews. I had a subscription to Allure and based a lot of decisions from that. I also had Paula Begoun's (sp?) original Cosmetics Cop book and used that as a guide, but it was never relevant for very long with companies constantly introducing new products.   5-7 years ago I used blog websites (Temptalia, M&BB, Specktra) and the occasional YouTube video to assist in my shopping. Now, I'm at a point where I flat out don't trust bloggers and YTers who are sent products for review (I believe some of them are being honest but anytime you get a remotely good product for free, of course you'll think its worth it), and I only read Allure if I'm waiting at the doctor's office. I feel like they can't be trusted either, especially when they rave over products that I know are a total bomb and have been skewered on BT, in product reviews, etc.   Now I mostly use customer reviews, posts here on BT, and still check up on items through the Beautypedia. I've also found Instagram to be useful, to a degree, not only to find new items coming out and looks that incorporate things I already have, but also to see what everyone is trying to unload that isn't working for them.   What methods/sites do you guys use now? Or are you one of those people who just buys all the things (in which case, thanks for your reviews and IG posts, haha)?

I was wondering if there was any ETA on this particular item? Also, related, I saw on the MUFE website that there are several other sizes of this palette; will they also be made available at Sephora? It really bums me out that these palettes are sold exclusively at Sephora, only online, and just in the one size which is always OOS. Some good news please? http://www.sephora.com/metal-palette-P391918?skuId =1622612

Ok BT, what did you find today? Sticky plug to a FABULOUS thread. Found a  Deal ? Post it here - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Deals-too-go od-to-pass-Up/td-p/1513386 Feel free to post if you find something from your favorite brand. Link to the item, and let us know the price, and brief description so that folks can at a glance decide if they want to clickie to <3 Love or $$ Buy. ^-^ Most new items get listed on Tuesday evenings through Wednesday. Here is the retired thread in case you wanted to reference something. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Found- in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/td-p/1668202   I've edited out the brands since I'm doing my best to check everything. This is a tad more difficult with very established and broad brands like Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Bobbi Brown that have deep selections for colors. Your help in spotting anything new is appreciated!

I can't keep up with all of these LE releases and had no idea Indiscretion would disappear before I could order. Is this available in store?

Often times I find myself debating between products and need some advice on what to buy. Instead of making a whole new thread every time, I thought it would be a great idea to have a thread dedicated to asking and giving advice on potential purchases.    To get us started, I can't decide between the Fresh Sugar Rose Extreme, the Fresh Sugar Rose, or the Fresh Sugar Sweeties Duo.    http://www.sephora.com/sugar-rose-extreme-lip-trea tment-spf-15-P393514?skuId=1684604 http://www.sephora.com/sugar-lip-treatment-spf-15- P57002?skuId=1190529 http://www.sephora.com/sugar-sweeties-mini-lip-duo -P393527?skuId=1680784

Some others and I were talking about Ardency Inn the other day on the WAYWT thread, so I thought I'd start a thread for the brand where you can add swatches, ask questions, and give opinions.

I Have been searching for the MUFE S924 eyeshadow/blush, I believe it is just called 'purple' I haven't been able to find it online anywhere, and I'm unsure if it is even carried in stores. These eyeshadows were just released so I'm very confused! I have found I922 (the electric purple one) but  need  S924. Where can I find it? Would it be discontinued for any reason?

OK, so I know some folks didn't have the best Sephora experience yesterday at the Rouge event. But how about we give a little bit of love, though, to the people who tried to make it a good one!   I want to say my thank you's to Justin (both of them!), Ally, Val, the store director (Michelle, I think) and the lovely girl in fragrance with the awesome Deva curls (we gushed over each other) at the Burlington, MA store! I had a fun time — you made me feel welcome and appreciated! (((HUGS)))   Add your fave SAs to the list!

Yes, I enjoy beauty and I spend a lot at Sephora, but while shopping at the Westfarms Mall in CT on Friday, I felt like I was being shamed by one employee for reaching the Rouge level so early in the year.   I was at the checkout and the associate that was assisting me was wonderful and very cheery, and when she scanned my card she told me that I had re-qualified for Rouge.  When the associate next to her heard, she said "What, already?" in such a condescending tone.  The client she was assisting asked what that was and the associate said "She already spent $1,000 here since January!" and the two of them went on talking about how much money that is and how could someone spend that much so quickly.  Then of course they scoffed when they heard me being told I have over 5,000 points.  Everything about it made me feel like junk.     I have never felt this way shopping in store, but I felt so embarrassed after this encounter that I just wanted to get out of there and not go back.  I am not ashamed about what I spend my money on, because of course I only buy what I can afford and that is nobody's business but my own.  I generally choose to shop at Sephora because I have had good experiences in the past, but I feel like I will probably find another Sephora location to go to, or do my shopping online and at other retailers where I feel more comfortable.   Has anything like this ever happened to you in store?  I would feel a little better if I weren't the only one that has had to go through something like this!

I need help linking my beauty insider card that I just got today in-store at Sephora. The lady who gave me the card only asked for my name and last name. I made a sephora account today, since I thought I could link my card to my sephora account online but am having trouble doing so. Any help would be nice!

I went to place an order earlier this evening and it says we are unable to process your order with the information provided. Please verify billing information  and try again. I have never had an issue with an order before an I have made several orders prior to this. It's a Saturday night/early Sunday morning So I obviously would not get an answer if I called. I have no idea what is going on, but it is quite irritating!

Hi All, I tried a sample of Tatcha rice enzyme powder ( foil packet, it gave me two uses) and really like how my skin felt so soft and my serum absorbed in so quickly. The reviews on product page are great but here on BT, I can see some people love it while others don't like it much. Help me decide if it is worth the price tag or not. Have you tried it, why you like it or dislike it. EDIT: I just notice typo in the title of thread but I hope you know I wanted to write TATCHA not TATCHE

I know that Sephora has a rock solid return policy, but does anyone else hate seeing some of these items listed as 'online only'?   Foundation/concealer/any other coverage product MUST be tested prior to purchase. I know that I have returned items that I HAVE been able to sample, because the colour turned out to be not quite right.   It seems like a mega hassle to wait for blind items like this to be shipped, only to immediately have to go back in the box for a mail in return.

I would love a trial size kit for moisturizers, like you have for mascara or lipstick, so I can try a few options.   Thank you!
