Seriously. I went to a Sephora today, and asked for a sample of Josie Maran's Illuminator, and I got a tiny needle drop of it. What gives! Actually, with all store made samples, they're pretty stingy. At least my Sephora is. What about yours?
I wish that Sephora would make our 'love' lists more customizable. I am never able to send a wishlist for my birthday/holidays, because in addition to the things that I lust for, I also keep my staples on that list as well, that I replenish when I need to. I would be pretty disappointed receiving a tube of Porefessional for my birthday, when what I REALLY wanted was a set of glittery UD eyeliners. PLEASE, Sephora! Give us a more customizable list. I would love to have a 'shopping list' and a 'wish list' that I can keep separately from one another!
Ok beauty masters. I'm thinking of purchasing those infamous meteorites during the 4x point week. I need your advice...do I need to order the bigger box or the cheaper box, or purchase both? I mean, is it worth the $ to buy both or should I just get one? Ive noticed several of you guys have both. I'm fair skinned and freckled, hazel eyes, and blonde hair. Any thoughts?n
Recently, my left brow is turning lighter than my right and I really would like to try the tinted brow gel that comes in a container like mascara. I think it may look more natural. I've tried tons of different brow pencils, but I can never get them to look right. Same with the powders and pomades. My problem - and question - is two-fold: 1st - Do these products work and look natural? Are they easy to use? I'm hoping that "tinted" doesn't mean "painted"! LOL 2nd - My brows - at least my right one - are dark brown, almost black. My hair is colored red. Should I stick with the dark or go with auburn? Help, please!!
I've been a VIB for a few years now, and my local Sephora is within walking distance of that "other" brand. I've heard rave reviews about their rewards program, most especially about their generous giving of free product with each new level reached and not samplers. Today, I headed to my Sephora store for the VIB event, got my bag loaded up, and then...went to Ulta. I was actually there to get a tube of NYX lip gloss since I've heard so much about it, but I went through the whole store out of pure curiosity. The verdict? While Ulta does carry drugstore brands and their rewards are pretty lofty in comparison...Sephora has my heart. Ulta felt too "superstore-ish". No offense, but a little...below...the standard and prestige of Sephora. So, Sephora, heed our call! Amp up our VIB rewards. Tidy up the shelves and demos in your stores (our store is a tad lacking in that dept.). And, keep up the great work! = )
What is the BEST SETTING SPRAY for keeping your makeup (especially blush, bronzer, highlight) in place ALL DAY?! I am running out of my Mac Fix Plus and I would like to try something new, that hopefully works better!! Thanks Dolls!!😘
Hi! I have a question regarding price adjustments. I purchased a Clarisonic Mia 2 on March 30th. I then received an email coupon for 15% off through April 10th. I called the 877 number and was told the only way to get a credit for the difference would be to return it and purchase it again with the coupon, since the coupon was not valid at the time of my purchase. Is there a way to do it without returning it? I also have a 20% off coupon from another retailer, but I would rather keep the product I already purchased. That $23 would really mean a lot to me =)
I'll be taking an overnight flight and wanted to get some tips on skincare to prevent my skin from drying out and breaking out. My beauty advisor at Sephora recommended the Ole Henrikson making removing cloths followed by the Murad Clarifying wipes to remove makeup, sunscreen, and clean my skin. I purchased these two items. Then I was thinking about what to follow it with. I was thinking of the Nude Overnight Mask or the Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Sleeping Mask. Any opinions on the Nude mask vs the Amore Pacific Mask? I've used the Nude mask (not on the plane), but never tried the Amore Pacific. Also, do I need to use any other treatments or moisturizers before the mask?

I want t to start contouring my face but want to make sure I buy the best products for my skin type. I am over 50 Latina with a round face medium/light complexion with yellow undertones. I wear Mac NO 25 foundation and have T zone oily SKIN. Smash Box contouring kit has been recommended.
I was browsing around the Korres page to see the new stuff that has come in, and I noticed the price increase in my favorite, Wild Rose cream. I know prices increase every year, but a sudden $3 increase? Who am I kidding I'll still buy it ...ahh...why must I love it so much? I wonder how they determine which products/brands they'll increase pricing for? On a side note, has anyone tried the new Black Pine line? I'm so tempted to try it. Korres is my favorite skincare brand, and it has never disappointed me!
I've been trying out a bunch of concealers lately to hide the few blemishes and mild/moderate acne scars on my face. My favorite so far is Amazing Cosmetics Concealer because it's the most opaque one I've ever used and covers perfectly on the first try. However, I notice that when I get home from work and look in the mirror the concealer has worn off. Any advice on why this is happening? I don't use a primer (I'm hearing your gasps!) but I do use a setting powder everyday (MUFE's HD powder). I wouldn't think I'd need a primer because I've never used one before and haven't noticed this issue with any of the other concealers I've used. So is it me not using a primer, is there some other trick to help make it last all day, or is this a common occurrence with this concealer? Help me, beauty gurus!
I'm hoping to try and pare down my mass grave of products. I'm willing to ship first for people who have more hearts than me (just about everyone lol). If you are interested in a product I will take pictures of it for you to see and also weigh it on my kitchen scale so you'll know exactly how much product is left. I'm mostly hoping to find any Josie Maran product (!!), Philosophy Fresh Cream products, anything with sweet vanilla/sugar scents, anything with Argan Oil, and Agadir products. I'm open to other products as well Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser (3/4 full) - Olive and Avocado Deep Conditioning Shampoo (used once) - Kerestase Christaliste Bain Cristal (used twice) - John Masters Haircare Zinc and Sage Shampoo (2/3 full) - 100% Pure Vanilla Bean Nourishing Body Cream (2/3 full) - Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel (1/2 full) - Kenra Platinum Silkening Gloss (used once) - Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil (used a few times) - Khiels Deeply Restorative Smoothing Hair Oil Concentrate (used once) - Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum (used once) - Moroccan Oil Treatment Oil (more than 3/4 full) - Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo (little more than 1/2 full) - Ojon Rare Blend Infusion Shampoo (2/3 full) - Wen Bamboo Green Tea (used once)
I was wondering if a mod could please help me When will the Nars Ita brush #21 come back in stock? I've been wanting this brush for a while now and I'd prefer to purchase it from Sephora. I talked with Nordstrom's and they aren't planning on carrying it anymore ( muuuwahhhh I'm not sure if NARS is discontinuing this brush… Seems unlikely as it's really popular.
I have bought sooo many lippies here lately, especially when bite rereleased their double ended lippiesvand the 4 pack of lip stick, Marc Jacobs released his, and of course Kat von d recent release, I've amassed quite a few lippies and have at least 5 more coming! (The UPS man hates me!) Sooooo I need advice from you guys on how to organize them. I will say my eyesight is awful so I cant read the colors on the bottom of the lippies. I have an ikea table with 5 drawers with drawer organizers from bed bath and beyond, but they are getting full! I noticed curiouscannible had hers in acrylic stackable thing. Good idea but, should I organize them by brand, or color?? And if by color, what about the double ended bite ones? So come on guys, give me your secrets!!
I was just wondering.. For things they can't make samples out of, do they keep samples that the companies send over to give out? I know they have samples of the Glamglow Eye mask. Any other ones you know of?
What do you guys think of this product line? http://www.sephora.com/runway-ready-P386765?icid2= hum_nutrition_spotlight_image Has anyone tried it for a while? What do you think of Sephora selling supplements? With that in mind, is anyone happy with Phyto supplements?
I love, love, love Wayne Goss! I know that he's got hundreds of You Tube tutorials, and a new line of makeup brushes...but my question is, does he have any books out?! I've been hunting online & checked out my Barnes & Noble and haven't found anything. How great would that be! If anyone has come across one please let me know :-)

Hello! My name is Karson, and I am a fifteen year old sophomore in high school. At this age all anybody ever asks me is "What do you want to be when you get out out of high school?" My answer is always that I would love to be a makeup artist. Whenever I tell people this, they laugh and say that I can't live off of being a makeup artist. But if makeup is my passion, I think I can prove them wrong. If people such as Wayne Goss, Jaclyn Hill, and Michelle Phan can do it…why can't I? I have a few issues with proceeding to this career though. My family is very tight on money, even if I ask for drugstore makeup for my birthday my mother yells at me. Nobody is supportive about my decision. And there are no makeup classes for people my age in the area of where I live. So, I come here for advice. How could I convince to my parents that makeup artistry is a career that I can gradually get into, and what should I do if they continue to be unsupportive? I am also looking into colleges or schools to go to when I get out of high school but I don't know where to start. Should I be looking up cosmetology schools, or just plain makeup artistry schools?
I've been using this dual phase peel for the last 2 ~3 months and have been loving them but I'm almost out on the gel (the one in the bottle) whereas I have a ton of yellow stuff left. I woudln't want to waste and throw the yellow jar out just because I'm out of the gel..
Hello, I am writing out of desperation so please do NOT disregard this and help if you can. So a bit more than 2 months ago I was searching for toners, toners for GLOWING SKIN! I did a lot lot lot of research to find a good one with a big number of positive reviews and a couple of days into my research I found this toner that was reviewed by the community on Sephore!! (THANK YOU GUYS AT SEPHORA AS ALWAYS!!). But here is the very sad part. I fantasized about having the product day in day out and even had a routine ready which I would follow when I finally had the product but 6 weeks down the track when I finally wanted to order the tonner I HAD FORGOTTEN ITS NAME. I tried rigorously to find the product for literally HOURS every night 2 weeks straight and had no luck what so ever. I hate my self for it and I will never be able to forgive my self if I don’t find it. That’s how much I need it and that’s how much it means to me. IF YOU LADIES WHO ARE READING THIS CAN HELP ME WITH THE NAME I WILL BE FOREVER INDEBTTED TO YOU aAND WILL LOVE YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. So about the product, I do remember a couple of things. It was a WHITE bottle with a GOLDEN/YELLOWISH cap (has a really posh and expensive look to it!! All their products are like that white with golden caps). The BRAND NAME was the name of the CREATOR, the skin cosmetician himself, for example OLE HENRIKSEN (it’s the brand name and the name of the skin cosmetician who created it). The brand name was a EUROPEAN one…… It sounded more FRENCH if anything. It wasn’t one of the main stream ones we all know off like Loral Paris or Maybelline. The PRICE TAG was EXPENSIVE. Can’t really remember what it was but I think it was $100 and over. Probably the most important aspect I remember about the toner was the fact that it had OVER A THOUSAND REVIEWS and had a FOUR AND A HALF STARS rating. So it was reallllllyyyyy good Once again please help me! I know and clearly understand that it is not your job to find it for me but I have tried EVERYTHING and this is my last HOPE.
It's something bold, something new, something (that should never be) borrowed, something (that comes in) blue! It's Ciate LashLights - it's a lash tip mascara that has FullFlutterFoam Technology!! (sounds impressive) It comes in Nymph (green) Surreal (aqua) Famous (pink) and Electric (blue) I wish it came in a purple/aubergine color, which my green eyes favor. What do you guys think of this? Will you try it? Have you tried it? What colors do you think you'd try? Will I give in and get it? and in what color? Any thoughts or 'tips'? Please post any new interesting finds of your own, I don't always think to regularly check out all the new products, maybe this will be a fun way to share cool things we think are special finds - for better or for worse. EDIT - Really? Why'd it break up my 'feel' in the thread title? It could not have been this users error! At least I don't think so. Sure, the one thing I can't change/edit. Dag Nabbit! Guess that's the eerily prophetic 'for worse' part I mentioned! EDITED EDIT - oops, my bad. It showed up on my screen with 'FEE' on the 1st line and the 'L' on the 2nd line. But when I saw it posted 'feel' came out right, false alarm.
