products cannot be shipped to Netherlands?
I just found out that Sephora ships to the Netherlands, which is great! Nevertheless, I noticed that it is impossible for some products to be shipped to my location. Can someone explain me why? An example of such a product is the Dior Creme de Rose.

Charged for a product I did not receive in-store.
G'day, I purchased a few products from the Sephora store in Yorkdale late last week and received all but one product (Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette in 'Streak'). Am I able to bring in my receipt and the products which I received to a Sephora store to see if I can obtain the missing product? Thanking you in advance!

Any notice on the 2 year Cosmo subscription?
Hi! I placed on May 2, 2014 the 2 year Cosmo subscription promo code. It showed up when I was placing the order but not on the receipt. Then I read in the beauty talk that I had to wait 10 weeks to process the order. But it has passed more than 10 weeks and I haven’t heard anything. How can I know if I’m going to get the magazines or not? Thanks in advanced for your help.

Question about store credit and placing in-store orders
I have a store credit that I was planning to use to buy a particular product, but it's not available in any stores within a 100-miles radius of me. Since I can't use the credit online, could I order the product through my local store and have it shipped to me?

Canadians get hosed again. Rouge status USELESS in Canada.
I haven't placed an order in months and the last few orders I placed there were no additional costs for duties/taxes etc. Before I placed this order I just called to make sure that was still the case and lo and behold I was told it HAS changed - that was just a pilot program Sephora was trying out and now duties and taxes will be charged and collected at the time the order is placed.   We all know the only real perk for being Rouge is free shipping and now that has basically been taken away from us - why would I place an online order with additional charges when I can shop locally in store? The silly little samples are not going to make up for the extra cost. Since most of the beauty deals are only available online, I can't get those either.   There really is nothing in it for Canadians being VIB ROUGE.

How can I link a purchase to my Beauty Insider account?
Hi!   My husband got me the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette as a present in our recent trip to NY. He didn't use my card (nor did he get offered to open a new one so he didn't link the purchase to any account). How could I link that purchase to my Beauty Insider account to get the points?   Thank you so much!

Beauty Insider Points
Hi there! I'm wondering why my beauty insider points aren't showing up online?  I've never shopped online with Sephora, but am a frequent customer at my local Sephora store.  I know I do not have 0 points (like my online account shows) because I just became a VIB at the store.  I'd appreciate any helpful response. Thanks!

Purchased product not showing in My Purchases
Hi! A few weeks back I made an instore purchase of the UD All Nighter Spray, and a Sun Safety Kit (I was so shocked to find these still in store!!!). When I go to My Purchases on my account, only the All Nighter spray shows up, not the Sun Safety kit. Is this just because it isn't available online anymore? Just want to make sure it is counting towards Rouge...I am embarrasingly close to qualifying so every dollar counts!   Thanks, Laura

Sephora liquid concentrate price changed
Hi there!   Last week I purchased the Sephora collection Liquid Moisturizing Skin Concentrate out of the sale section and it was $11 - as seen in my screen capture. I received it and decided I like it, and went back online to order another one. Now it is back to regular price ($22). http://www.sephora.com/liquid-moisturizing-skin-co ncentrate-P385143?skuId=1552264   Can you tell me if I can expect this item to be back in the sale section again? I don't want to purchase it at full price.   Thanks!

If you returned to a Sephora Inside JC Penny, the online receipt will not scan into the computer system. Therefore they would have to do the return as a "no receipt." see post

Weird in store experience
Recently I popped by my local Sephora (Montréal, Ste-Catherine) to play the "should I make a change or repurchase" game. I am troubled by my skin and play this game often when it comes to skincare; I wanted a second opinion.   I approached a cast member in the skincare department with my burning dilemma to which she responded by making a weird expression and pushing past me to greet her friend who had come into the store. I thought her behaviour was extremely rude and walked to another department to browse and cool off. I regrouped myself, went back into the skincare department and tried to sort out whether to buy the Dr. Jart+ Premium (my usual choice) or Black Label Detox BB cream on my own. After a few minutes the same cast member came by and said, "Now I can help you!". I declined her help because I didn't want to be near someone like that. She began to insist,  tell me I was wrong for finding her behaviour rude, and then snidely confronted me about the situation in a loud voice. I politely maintained that I no longer wanted her help.   Shortly after, the manager of the skincare department came over to ask what had happened. As I normally spend $300- $500 a month there for my boyfriend's skincare needs and mine, I'm well known in the store. I explained the situation, the manager profusely apologized, said the cast member would be reprimanded for her rudeness and sent me someone who had no idea about the products to help me. The man she sent over was completely lovely but didn't have a clue about skincare. He wasn't in the normal Sephora uniform, I think he might have been a guard or a trainee? I really wanted to know the difference in sunscreen and which was better suited for my skin. We spent about 10 minutes reading packaging together, and because the SPF isn't marked on the full size packaging (but is on the sample in the set I purchased not long ago?!?!), I gave up trying to figure it out, and decided to take a chance on the Detox. Once I was in line to pay, she brought over a small Amore Pacific gift to apologize. This was very nice of her, and did help make me feel a bit more valued, but I left the store altogether confused, upset and possibly with the wrong advice.    Can someone help explain which would be better for my 30 year old, sensitive, dry, and acne prone skin?

So I bought the Bite Lip Kit and I'm missing one of the lipsticks, the box looks battered, and they look swatched/used.   Seriously!? WTF? Do they not check for used/missing products before they resell? Thoroughly disappointed because this item is now permanently out of stock.
