Alright Sephora friends, I am currently looking for a complete NEW skin care routine! My main goal is to reverse my mild post acne spots, discolorations, & slight scarring as well as maintain a fresh, smooth, radiant complexion after I fix my main concern. I have done some research and narrowed it down to the brightening Murad line (the Orange one) then I was going to add the post acne marks serum if necessary, Kiehls which I know Sephora doesn't sell (Oops!) and another non-Sephora brand is Roden and Fields and the Unblemish routine. Does anyone have reccomendations that would be helpful? I've searched high and low and haven't been able to find a fit for my skin. Please help! Thanks in advance

I recently became a VIB, and I received a voucher for a free customized makeover. If anyone has had experience with it before, could you tell me what it was like? I mostly just want tips on applying my face makeup, and I don't want any eye makeup done. If I tell the beauty advisor I don't want any eye makeup, will she just do the rest of my face? And how in depth do they go with giving you tips and advice?

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.

Looking for something to replace my beloved, discontinued Halo Powder in Yellow. I get redness in all the wrong parts of my face and this stuff just balanced and perfected everything so well! Hoarded it when it was discontinued and have about 1/3 of my final jar left. Looking for a replacement soon, so I'm not left hanging (with a blotchy face) when this runs out!   Looks like the very-similar Bluff Dust by Benefit was also disco'd.  Has anyone tried the Clinique Redness Solutions pressed powder? http://www.sephora.com/redness-solutions-instant-r elief-mineral-pressed-powder-P277401?skuId=1295765   Or, other suggestions?

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.

Is the Beauty Blender worth it? I'm considering purchasing but I do not know if it's worth my investment. Have any of you tried the liquid cleanser also?

I have always loved the idea of face masks since I was a girl, but only experienced good ones from the free samples on here. So what do you guys think? What's the best on here to buy? Oh and this is random, but I've been trying birchbox, and I'm not sure if I like it or not. Any opinions or experiences with birchbox? I'm not trying to advertise it, I'm really not sure if I like it. This one I got I only liked one or two things. And I get so many freebies on here....

Hello, I got a brand new Smart profile brush as a gift, but the back is a bit different from the one showed on the website, it has the Smart profile stamp up ahead but the Clarisonic logo is all the way down to the end of the brush while on the website it's placed up ahead the Smart Profile writing. How is yours?

I bought a BB cream at Sephora a while ago, but I don't really know how to apply it so I want to go back and get a mini-makeover so they can teach me how to use it. Can someone tell me how the mini-makeover thing works? Do you just walk up to any SA and ask them? And what would you ask them if you wanted them to do your face makeup for you with BB cream?

I received my samples from GlamGlow yesterday and was really itching to try the cleanser. I just used the Thirsty Cleanse so I wanted to share what I think.    First of all I must say that I absolutely HATE the Thirsty Mud Mask. I cannot stand the smell. This cleanser doesn't small as strong (and since I only had it on for a short time and than washed it off that makes a difference).   The way you use this cleanser is that you apply it directly to your dry face, massage it in, and add a bit of water for it to emulsify. You massage that it and than wash your face completely. I don't really like some of the cleansers out there that have this method because I feel like I have to rub my face raw to get it to turn the way it's supposed to. But this one is much faster. It works very quickly.    After I washed it off my skin does feel very refreshed and hydrated. I actually really like the way it feels and I bet after using this sample I would totally buy the full size. I can't give a true "review" since this was just a 1 foil sample I was sent (they also sent me 1 packet of Super Cleanse but I will pass that to a friend).    I just thought I'd share my humble first thoughts on this product

With the 20% off sale coming up it got me thinking about my online shopping habits at Sephora.     I'm curious beauties, how often does the online sample selection (the 3 free, not perks or codes) factor into your decision to make a purchase?   I know if I have something I want to buy that isn't urgent (like LE or sale items) I will wait until the sample selection cycles through if there isn't anything I want.   What about you?  Do those free samples hold any sway over you?   Personally I wait until most of the perfumes are OOS, since I have a really hard time with most fragrances.     On the flip side, if I see something I really want I might place orders for things I don't need right away just to stock up on a sample.

So I just went to sephora in Nashville and tried. Some nars matte foundation (discontinuing this.) my shade was monte blanc and it was the perfect match lasted great on my skin! I'm just wondering what shade I should use for under eye concealer, I'll being the nars creamy one. I know it will be either the 1st or 2nd shade. I really just want to highlight with it. Suggestions are appreciated since I won't be near a sephora for a while!

... And why aren't you waiting until they're an extra 20% off??   I keep adding these things to my cart, but they keep selling out on me, because I want to wait for the extra20 promo. Guess I'm just a cheapskate, lol.

Hello, I got a Luxe Cashemere brush as a gift, but I'm suspecting it could be a fake, cause in the other Clarisonic brushes i own there are a clock icon and a number in the center on the back of the brush, while on this, I can't see any clock symbol and the number is on the outern circle and not in the center. Since this is the first Luxe brush I got, I can't compare it, so can you help me and check out yours?thanks so much

Hello! My brother wants some shower gel for xmas. I thought I would have lots of options on sephora.com... but it's somewhat limited. Also, I'm not familiar with men's products. Do you guys have a good shower gel to recommend? Or any gift idea for a guy?   Thanks!

Okay, we all know there's room for improvement in the features department of BT. So given that none of us actually have the power to change anything, how do you keep track of things? I used to think I was just too much of a newb to understand the ins and outs of BT, but now that I've been here for a while, I realize that nothing has really changed and it still feels like a bit of a clusterF to keep track of responses and comments/mentions intended for a specific user.     Do you subscribe to threads? Do you track responses to your own posts through your list of activity in your profile? Do you just rely on PMs?    What's your method to the madness?

I just saw the new perfume which I love! How ever I am trying to avoid particular ingredients such as Petroleum. Does anyone know the ingredients? The page does not have it posted which is a bummer.
