I just received my order placed on the 16th, and it didn't have ANY of the samples I selected at checkout included, nor did it apply the promo code that I entered. The only sample that came correctly was my birthday sample set, since it was my birthday month (Tarte lip and cheek set, which I love). I know I'm having a first world moment being sad about my missing samples, but I was excited about the ones I selected, and I can't use one of the three sent to me because of allergies.
I recently placed an order and did not receive free samples I chose. I was given 3 other samples that I did not want to try. I ordered again today and selected 3 samples but I'm afraid I won't receive the correct samples again. I am noticing that my packages ship from the Utah Warehouse and see that it is a consistent issue with other orders from this same warehouse. Why let buyers choose samples only to receive something completely different?
For some time now I've noticed that I rarely receive all or sometimes any of the specific samples I request with my orders. I would totally understand if this was always due to the simple issue of them running out of stock, but I've paid close attention recently and that doesn't seem to be the cause; take a recent order I placed as an example: I requested a sample of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pressed Opal (which I was really looking forward to as I love Becca products). I received this package today, and it did not include this sample; it was replaced by something else which I have received before and really don't like / will never use. However, I know this sample is still available because I went to place another order today for something I forgot, and the sample was still available to select - 3 days after I originally placed the order below. I also didn't receive the Replica "At The Barber's" scent sample, though that one is still listed as an available sample on your website today too. I think the order below may be the second one I've requested that particular sample in, and still have yet to receive it at all. Can you please investigate as to why I don't seem to receive the right samples anymore even when they are still in stock? Is it a processing issue you have that affects more customers than just myself, or somehow something specifically wrong with my account? In case it's relevant, I believe this started happening around the time that we were able to select 5 samples for an extended period. However, even once we changed back to only receiving 3 samples, I'm still not likely to get the ones I request. I definitely appreciate that samples are a free thing and Sephora isn't obligated to provide them, but it's a bit damaging to the overall experience of being a loyal Sephora customer to have this keep happening, especially when it used to be so much better. Plus, it's defeating the point of giving us samples to get us to buy more things when you don't send what we're clearly interested in. Please let me know if you need more information from me to help resolve this. Thank you!
I already posted in detail about my issue here : http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Insider/Sep hora-Rewards-Bazaar/m-p/2703723/highlight/true#M96 ... But I was hoping a mod could PM me regarding the best way to proceed. Do I need to talk to the Bloor St store, the person at Kendo Brands that booked my appointment, or someone else about getting my gift card situation rectified? Thanks.
I received my PLAY! box yesterday. I was on the waiting list for almost a year. Unfortunately the Lip Injections and the NARS lipstick was missing from my box Can someone please email me please. Thank you
Hi, so I recently had to get a new debit card because I had lost my other one. I missed out on the January box because I had forgotten to update my card. I Updated my card and I've been getting emails about the February box but I haven't been charged. I was really looking forward to this box, I just want to make sure that I'm getting it.
Hello, I am a loyal Sephora customer who does the majority of my shopping with your company online. This is due to the fact that my local Sephora does not have near the selection of point perks that are offered online and does not offer samples like the 3 offered online, and also does not carry most of the products I love and repeatedly purchase in-store, (mainly Drunk Elephant, which is not in Canadian Sephoras and makes up the majority of my Sephora purchases). I received a Sephora gift card for Christmas and made a purchase online. I swatched the product after receiving it and found it was not a match, so I brought it to my local Sephora to return it. Upon doing so, the sales associate that rang me through said that it had to go on store credit and could not be put back on the gift card. I asked her if store credit was the same as gift card and she said yes, which I found out is not true as store credit cannot be used with online purchases. Is there actually a legit policy that states any returns made to Sephora that were purchased by gift card must be put on store credit? I am just struggling with the idea as I know it is logistically possible to put it back on a gift card as that is what any other store I have shopped at has done. The other reason I am so frustrated by this is that the item I want to spend this money on is from a brand that is strictly sold online (Viseart) , and I don't want to purchase something I don't truly want just because this money is now no good online. I am not trying to be rude here, there is a reason I am loyal to Sephora because I love the products you offer, and any other time I have done in-store shopping at my local Sephora all the sales associates have always been so welcoming and amazing, and the on-line customer support has always been good to me as well. The associate who rang me through was not being rude to me either, she just did not give me any choice of having it put back on gift card nor did she provide an explanation on why it had to be put on store credit. I am just looking for a little help in regards to someone explaining to me whether this is something that should've happened. Is this a policy that happens in every single store and something that all employees must do, regardless of whether the purchase was originally made with a gift card and receipts and original packaging were provided upon return? Is there any way I can get this put onto a gift card instead? Again, I am not looking to get anyone in trouble, the girl wasn't being rude, and if it could've been put on a gift card, it is always possible that she wasn't aware of it and thought she was doing the right thing. Thank-you in advance!
I just recently ordered the Kat Von D Shade+Light palette and her liquid lipstick in Hawkwind. The large shade Laetus was crushed and Samael was chipped. I also received the shade Dammed instead of Hawkwind. I've placed orders before and have never had this kind of issue.
Hello, So I noticed when I return an item via onlin you get to track it but ive had times where down the line i would want to return another item from the same order but im unable to track it that second time with the site still showing when the first package arrived. Is there a way to see that second time as well or because its under the same order it wont show?
I went in today to redeem my 50 bonus point card from my play box. The associate at the register told me she would go ahead and give it to me anyway as the company hasn't been very open in letting people know but that in the future you now have o buy a full size item from the play box to redeem the card. She was very nice about it and gave me a small sample as apology which was nice. Is what she is saying true? The 50 bonus points has been a reason to go in and buy something each month. Like today a metallist liquid foil lipstick. However if this is indeed the case, there are months where the bonus points are going to go to waste as there isn't always something I want in full size. I get why they would like to do it his way but it seems this policy change if indeed it is true would hurt sales instead of help. I'm sure I'm far from being the only one who won't go in monthly now to unit something to use the card.
Hi all, I received the delivery confirmation for my latest Sephora package days ago, but the box itself never appeared - it was either delivered to the wrong location or stolen! My neighbors don't have it and I've looked everywhere. I posted about this two days ago and received a very helpful PM from a mod (MariekeBT, who was lovely,) but she said to contact another mod for faster help because she was going to be away - I don't know another way to find a mod, tried reaching out directly but didn't hear back. Is there someone who can help me get this package redelivered?? Please!

I have been eagerly awaiting my latest box from Sephora and was excited to see it had been delivered yesterday in the early afternoon - however, when I checked it was nowhere to be found? I looked everywhere, and checked with my neighbors as well, but no luck. I don't know whether it was delivered somewhere else or stolen. What can I do in this situation??With the items I bought, plus some rewards points I redeemed and samples, there should have been 12 items coming, and I would still very much like to have them!
I made an order from Sephora 3 days ago, and I just wanted to see how the order was going by checking the tracking process and it said "Undeliverable - Need Gate Code" and it said Burbank, CA. I just want to make sure I understand that my order isn't being delivered to Burbank since that's not the address I ordered my order to be delivered to. (Note: I ordered something else about a month ago with no problems about it being delivered, so I just want to check that there isn't anything going wrong with this one given what it says currently.)
Hi. Since November I have not been receiving Amy emails. I contacted customer service back in December and was told that I unsubscribed to emails, but I never did. They reset my email account and said I should start getting emails again, but never did get any. So I resubscribed, but it seems that I have to resubscribed every week because every time I check my account I am unsubscribed. Can someone please check into this because I would like to start getting emails again. I had been getting emails since 2006 when I signed up, but something changed in your system and have been having problems since November.
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!!
Hi ! My payment got rejected by Sephora and in the email it says that Sephora was unable to confirm the payment information, but when I check in my BOA (Bank of America) account, my money got deducted. Also I spoke to BOA representatives and they said nothing was wrong with my card and payment. Payment received (I made online transaction while talking to BOA representatives and they confirmed that my payment went through. But like 15-20 minutes later, Sephora sent me an e-mail and said it got rejected. Anyone experiencing with this? FYI my BOA card is a debit card. It's really frustrating because I've tried to make my purchase like 5-6 times and the result was still the same. Ps : I am a VIB rouge member.
I used a gift card in my last order (january 20) and the status of the order is: Unsuccessful Authorization (the status in every item is canceled). How can I get the money in the gift card back if I don't have the card anymore?
