I'm getting tired of the disconnect between the emails sent to vib rouge for promotions that the actual stores are not made aware of. Is it a lack of training or communications to staff? Is it that the products are not sent to the stores? Where is the disconnect? I understand that these programs are perks, and I am grateful for the promotions that actually come to fruition, however it is frustrating to waste time at the store having staff members search/or not search for promotional products that have been advertised to customers and yet the staff people are seemingly unaware of these emails or products. I feel that corporate needs to really overhaul the communication to their stores.
I just need to vent, which I don't normally do on here... My UPS driver requires a signature for every package due to one lost package over 3 yrs ago when I was on vacation. He and I now have an understanding that packages are to be put on will-call so I can pick them up since I am almost never home when he gets there...thanks work. So a few days ago, I place an order for the $50 fragrance sampler so I can redeem for Stella McC L.I.l.Y- the 1oz is only $50 that way instead of $60- and you get others samples + a VIB party sample bag- since I missed the event and didnt get one at all... I call UPS and have the packages put on will call (I placed another order the next day) and now I find that the second package is on will call but the first package with the fragrance sampler got sent back to the warehouse in MD where I live. Sephora says they can do nothing about it, and neither can UPS. I'm just completely frustrated as now I cant get the sampler or the VIB bag...both say permenantly out of stock.
I'm really disappointed to see that Canadians are not offered the discount on the new Makeup for ever eyeshadows. We already get charged so much more. Even though the colours are great, I will not be buying from this line because Canadians are not getting the same discount. Please forward this to whoever deals with this and hopefully it can change.
I've just placed 3 orders and minutes later I got an email saying my orders were cancelled. I called the sephora customer service number and was told I violated some terms? I was told because I've used the promo code too much? I order from you guys all the time to try out new things and each time I put in the promo code I've received in my emails. If I used it to much then why are you keep sending me email with different promo code? Also if it's a promo code I've used then it would tell me I couldn't use that particular code since I've already use it. You guys send out numerous emails to promo your products and you use promo code to attract customer and there business. So why couldn't I use it? Why am I being treated like I did something wrong when I'm the consumer who are spending my hard earning money? This is very upsetting and highly insulting. Maybe I will bring my business elsewhere! From what I've read in this forum sephora are losing more and more VIB rouge member due to this insulting act of customer service. I think it's time you guys do something about this to fix this on going problem your company have.
I placed my order it showed "Unsuccessful Authorization." I've tried twice with replacing billing address at America and Taiwan but both failed. After checking with bank, they told me the authorization of purchase has passed and credit-granting quota has been used. Please help ~
Hi, I went into my local store this week to purchase the Smashbox Photo Op Eye Enhancing Palette - Blue Eyes which has been carried for a long time there. I did not see it on the shelves so asked and they said it was pulled and in the back room to send back to corporate and they wouldn't sell me one. I was told to check on Sephora's website to order instead. Well, I checked online and it is no where to be found, but the brown eye version is in the sale section. Can anyone tell me if the blue eye palette is still available to purchase? Also, why are stores not selling products to customers they have in store and instead sending them to corporate? I really hope those extra palettes will be posted online and that I'm able to get one. Thanks for your help!
I just visit Sephora store to to a makeover. ( not book appointment ) I have 2 hours free while I were waiting my brother. So, I were browsing and asking to do a makeover. I thought a makeover will be free for a VIB Rouge anyway. But to make sure, I ask some lady about the price of makeover for confirmation and mention that I am a VIB Rouge. The lady told me that I still need to purchase a $50.00 in make up stuffs. I am willing to do so because I really like the contour kit which the MUA recommended. I came home and read some information on BeautyTalk. And , mot others VIBs and Rouges said it was free. I wonder it is free because they book beforehand via phone and online. I need to purchase a $50.00 worth make up in order to get the makeover free because I walk in ? because when they see the card, they will know me as a VIB Rouge anyway. By the way, the makeover is also CM ? I remember that they call CM for my service when I made payment. I just want to confirm though.

Been a loyal sephora's customer for years! Always been an online shopper but occasionally would go into a store to see what's new. However, today's experience was a disaster. Never had such horrible customer service in my life. It is my first time ever going to this location and will be my last as it does not compare to the level of service we've received at other locations. None of the staff here smiles or greet, and I witness them giving bad attitude to customers who asked for samples. So people are only left with the choice of buying without even knowing if the product is a right fit since they been discouraged to try samples as none were given. Now if they bring back the product that don't work out after testing it at home, they get treated like a criminals there. Seeing it happened to few nice consumers are already bad enough , but when the cashier rube off the negative vibe onto me.....that is just totally unacceptable!!! We work very hard for our money and we give our money to retail businesses who deserves it, so please don't be respectful to poor customers who are still willing to give you business. Remember without the loyal customers, your company will be out of business! Treat your customers with care and dignity!
I have been to my Sephora store only twice and both times 85% of the ladies there have been snotty and rude to me. I was brought up to be nice to people and do not understand why they act this way especially when in a customer service roll. I am a VIB member and am really hesitant to go back again to the store. The lady at the register today was so snotty to me and everyone that I asked for help with the exception of one nice person. So out of the 5 people I dealt with, 1 of them was nice and friendly. The other looked to bothered to help me and then were snarky with me.
Hi this item http://www.sephora.com/images/blank.gif was in sale section on canadian website yesterday but today when it is back in stock it says CAN"T BE SHIPPED TO CANADA ,,,Why I was stalking it since yesterday ,,,Can a Mod explain it or get it corrected by IT team????
Hi guys, I received an order today and my 100 point perk wasn't in there (actually I was missing samples too, really wanted to try the new YSL foundation ) Is there a way I can get my points back or get the perk? It was the Sephora Oil 100 point perk. Thank you
I've had both an in-store and online account for a while, but whenever I buy anything in-store none of my points show up on the site? I'm pretty sure I've added my insider card to the online account, and I've also just gotten a VIB card, will I need to sync that one with the online account as well or will it be automatic? Than you for your time.
Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo foundation in shade Light 42 came back into stock this morning after being gone for so long. I quickly placed an order, but I notice now that it shows as "permanently out of stock." Did you guys really get some back in and it just sold out quickly, or was that just a fluke? I called CS but they couldn't give me a definitive answer, only that my order would be cancelled within 24 hours if they didn't actually have any stock.
Quick question - I purchased the Clarisonic brush handle online since it wasn't available in any stores near me. I haven't used it because I just realized I made a silly mistake... because it doesn't fit my Clarisonic! I think I still have my packing slip, but if I don't - will the Order Detail/or an email work just as well? If not, will I still be fine to exchange it for another product even though it looks like my store doesn't stock the brush handle?
I got a beauty insider card a few months ago now. I've used it a few times since. Today when I signed into my online account it appears that the card is not connected to my account or email. I know it is the same email I provided when I got the card in store. Wondering if there is anyway to link them together or fix this?
I just put in an online order for a custom three palette from MUFE Artist Shadows
even when i hit process order, Creme Brulee was still there (it did not say out of stock anywhere). But when I look in the recent orders page, it says permanently out of stock. What happens to my 3 color palette then? Did I manage to get one of the last ones in stock for Creme Brulee? I'd like to know whether that's the case or not, or whether I'll have to pick a different shade.
I am currently a VIB Rouge and I got over 800 points today buying a ghd straightener with a x4 point purchase. I thought this would push me over what I needed to maintain my status for next year but it still says I need to spend over 300 more dollars to maintain my status. So does that mean in order to maintain my status I need to spend $1000 in a year rather than gaining 1000 new points in a year?
