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?

Didn't see this posted, so I'm sorry if this was already made known! But there are some KVD palettes and lipsticks in the sale section! Go grab them!

My love for Sephora continues. I was sent a comped, brand new, full sized Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel (launching 08-26-14) to review. I will use it for the first time tonight, so check back to this post if the product interests you.

Not that anyone probably cares…with the new holiday stuff up…but Sephora restocked the sale page and KVD Saint is back along with the other sale stuff that sold out.  Yes, I'm more drawn to the new holiday stuff too…but figured I'd point it out.   http://www.sephora.com/true-romance-eyeshadow-pale tte-saint-P292313?skuId=1325083

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.

I am 30 years old and have pretty dark under eye circles. What is the best eye cream/serum/treatment?

Mine definitely has to be Philosophy's Fresh Cream. It smells like you're covering yourself with the tastiest piece of cake you've ever eaten. It makes my showers that much more fun       What's yours?

So right now I am using the bareminerals power multitasking power (not sure the exact name). But I am looking for something a little stronger. I have somewhat noticeable circles under my eyes. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

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!

I am living in the South Korea and I want to know how to place my order. Because I have to select the state code in the U.S. but I don't have it

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!

Do you still carry Mercier "Mineral" foundation primer?  I can not find it with the search option.  If not, is there anyhthing else close I can use?

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.

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!

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.

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! = )

I am currently looking for a cc cream that has anti-aging properties. One with light to medium coverage and for combination skin type. Any recommendations?

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 love Sephora, and makeup and I don't mean to rant but this is annoying! Although I am only 16 I have spent over $650 at Sephora in the past year or so! And I find it intolerable when workers are rude or judgmental based on my age! I have been followed around the store and completely watched for my age to completely ignored for it! I have been given great service at Sephora, but recently it has become worse and I honestly don't know what I should do about it!

Afternoon BT! I got the Medi-Spa Peel from Dr. Dennis Gross from Sephora au gratis and these are the results. Today 8/22 is Day 1.  I will switch off each day with Alpha Beta Original strength peels.  Results with 1 use: smoothed my skin, reduces a majority of redness, helped dry up 2 under the skin pimples that have been driving me crazy, and my skin glows!    *I never ever post pictures of my skin without make up or some additional skin care but you all are so nice it makes it much easier!* Here we go!              Before:                      AFTER :     So Far So Good DDG never disappointing with his products. The pads felt softer than the AB.Peels, and they have specific directions to follow for actually putting it on your face. Very easy to follow. The smell is mellow compared to the peels. I'll update every other day as I use the Medi-Spa peel but I'll take pictures every day Cheers!

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?

I love reading reviews on products, and find myself sorting by least favorable and starting there.  I use Amazon like crack, and love the ability to see if someone is a verified buyer of a particular product.  Now Ulta has the same thing (or maybe I just didn't notice it before)!  I was reading a review for shampoo and noticed a 'verified buyer' symbol and I tend to find those reviews a little more credible.  Especially with the explosion of shills for Tarte, I'd love to see that same thing implemented here.   Sephora should take advantage of the BI program.  They track what we buy online and in stores so they have the means to do it!   So, come on, Sephora!  Please find a way to identify a reviewer as a verified buyer of the product.  I think all of us BIers will thank you.
