Did one out of stock item cancel my whole order?
Hello I made a fairly large order last night and received an email today saying " We apologize, but your recent order was cancelled due to either a system error or an inventory issue. We regret that we are unable to replace your order at this time. We have included the information below so that you can review the details of your order." My card has been charged so I'm hoping it was just the one item that I see is now out of stock that got cancelled but am unsure. Any advice would be appreciated.

Update for anyone with the same question: yes the whole order was cancelled and it will be up to 7 days to get my money back. see post
Horror story damaged items *broken perfumes*
The issues with my order happened before I ever placed it. Originally I wasn't able to place my order because my address was invalid. So I had to talk to a customer service agent to verify my address and I was finally able to place my order. Now today it seems like the item was mishandled. The box was soggy i'm not sure if that was because I live in seattle or the postal service delivered it that way. Not only was the box soggy it was also beat up even thought the box said FRAGILE. I ordered two Tom Ford perfumes one for me and one for my mother and a retractable brush totaling almost $550. The perfumes arrived broken so here I am out $500 with a couple broken perfumes in a soggy box and a really good smelling brush. Someone please tell me there is someway to get a refund or replacement.

100% frustrated with always getting wrong samples
I've made 10 orders to Sephora since Jan began and not one has included the correct samples. Today's order has three samples that I did not choose and when I logged on to see the current samples, all Three I choose are still listed. When I called the rouge line I was told there are different distribution centers so I could get anything. This is unacceptable. Other companies have no problem sending me the samples I choose. I've been rouge since day one and patiently waiting for Sephora to get that program and it's perks together but instead of getting better you are worse. In December, an order I placed arrived with 3 wrong samples and missing the curling iron I  ordered. With all the choices today to buy beauty products, I am finding myself spending 10% of my beauty money at Sephora and 90% elsewhere where the opposite had been true for years. This is solely due to your complete lack of concern for the Rouge program and your loyal customers.   When is your company going to fix the distribution center issues and make your loyal Rouge customers feel special?  Geez, in 4 years I've never even gotten one extra sample for being Rouge and now I can't even get the correct ones.  You may think it's not a big deal but to us customers, getting the samples we choose is a big deal. I understand that sometimes you are out of stock, but when I log on and see all 3 of the samples I choose still listed, obviously out of stock is not the issue. It's just a total lack of care for your customers that is the issue. Your Rouge representative telling me that it's a distribution center issue is so not ok I can't even tell you.  I consider this fraud that my house is connected to a distribution center that doesn't stock what you have listed as in stock samples.  The woman offered me reward points which is such a slap in the face as your new rewards program discriminates against those of us that can't sit at our computer 24/7 waiting for the 176 Hourglass rewards you are offering or the 44 Urban Decay rewards you are offering. Every reward that I want to get is always "out of stock" so what good is your company giving me rewards points that I can't use?  I understand a trip or a meet and greet being limited but why are products limited?  All you have to do is make more which the company can do but won't.  It's a new year, the 5th year Sephora has had the Rouge program ( or 4th, I've lost track as I wasn't even getting Rouge emails the first two years I was Rouge so I missed out on every perk the first two years and I was told "sorry" by your company). Are the perks of being a Rouge member going to finally be worthy of the money we are spending or is your company going to continue to do the downhill slide it's been doing lately?

Problems with the Play Box
Does anyone else seem to be getting weird products in their PlayBoxes.  They claim that they use your custom profile to pick some of the items.  Usually something for every skin type or every skin tone.    I am a young 22 year old girl with large pores and oily skin. I also have very fair almost porcelain skin (in the winter).   EVERY MONTH i get an anti-aging item and something for a dark skin tone. I don't understand, I've seen the other options and theres actual items that would be useful to me?  Are others who are subscribed also getting stuff that does not match? Are they even looking at the profile?    Please can someone within the Sephora business answer this as well? It's a waste of product, I can't use it? Or I don't need it. I've seen a few people ask this question and it seems to always getting ignored by employees. I would really like an answer

January 2017 Play by Sephora Box is lost in the mail
My January 2017 Play by Sephora Box has been shipped back and forth across the country according to the tracking number and appears to be stuck in NC now. It was shipped out on 1/11/217 and should have arrived on 1/18/2017. Has anyone ever had this happen? I called Sephora's Play number today and they told me I had to wait until January 22nd and then call back.

Marc Jacobs (2,000 point) Face Chart Perk
What information about you does the artist use to select the customized colors? A picture? Skin tone, hair color, etc.? Is the sketch customized to look like your face or just a generic outline? And does the chart come with the products that are custom selected for you? Or only the mascara? Thank you!!

You are contacted and the item is only customized for Sephora, meaning the only thing about you on it is your name. see post

My order was cancelled even though I'm sure I entered the information correctly
I just got an email about an order I placed last Sunday saying my order was cancelled due to an unsuccessful authorization of my payment information. This is confusing as I double checked to make sure that I entered my information correctly, and I sat there next to my grandfather while he entered his PayPal information, so I don't see what went wrong. Please help me with this, because I need my order by next Monday. Thank you!

I just received my package thinking, "Oh! There's a product that I received a sample for that I'm dying to try but haven't decided if its worth the money. I can finally try it!"   Wrong!

Flash Shipping ... HAH!
Placed an order 10/11. Super shocked when I received notice that it had shipped only 7 hours later that same day. (I know this just means a shipping tag was created. Still shocked) Checked tracking info last night and it was supposed to be here today. Well that's total B*** Sh**. Because now, my tracking says Monday at the EARLIEST. I order 95% of my Sephora purchases on line. My local store is in a JC Penny and suffers from constant "We're out of that, we get a truck Friday but we don't know what's on it." Which is a whole other bucket of crazy. But I've been Rouge since June, been shopping with Sephora since January, and every single order I've placed has taken LONGER to get to me with "Flash" shipping than it did with regular. I think I might have to start screen-shotting these first updates that read 2 day delivery times then magically change to over a week.   Sephora, seriously, get your mess together, because I can't tell if your "Flash" shipping program is just poorly implemented, or a complete joke on your consumers. I'm giving some serious consideration to just buying my stuff a-la-carte from individual retailers or maybe taking my business to Ulta. Clearly you guys aren't serious about keeping it.
