1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?


     Any lip balm with SPF

    

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?


     Don't think I've come across one yet. Sephora pretty much has everything I love

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?


     Alot, primarily with makeup. Occasionally with skincare, but my skin is sensitive so I try to stick with what my skin likes

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance


     Formula performance definitely. I could care less about brand names

1. I cannot leave home without sunscreen. Over the years, my choice in sunscreen has changed and I am currently using Murad's Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15.

2. Cle de Peau Concealer and more BB Creams from Asian brands

3. If a skincare product works for me, I usually stick with it, but if it's something like a mask or brightening treatment, I like to experiment to see which one fades my scars or brightens my skin better.

4. I would choose formula performance all the way.

2. Donna Karen New York; Philosophy Hope in a Bottle

 

3. I love Sephora for experimentation--I have sensitive eyes and the ability to test my reaction in advance of purchase.  I experiment with things every weekend.

 

4. Formula performance

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

M.A.C Moisture Infusion mixed with Josie Moran Argan Oil. I like the dewy result!

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

I wish Sephora would carry La Fresh makeup remover wipes.

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

Ocassionally. Since I have sensitive skin, I have to thoroughly research brands before I take the plunge. I'm grateful that Sephora is a testing wonderland :smileyhappy:

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

Formula performance

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

For skincare, it's sunscreen. For cosmetics, it's definitely eyeliner!

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

I use sunscreen and mascara from La Roche-Posay, and Chanel blush is probably my favorite.

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

I seldom experiment with skincare because my current routine works well; I never want to deviate from it. With cosmetics, I love experimenting and do it often.

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

Formula performance! (That said, I do tend to rely on certain brand names.)

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

. 1. Cant leave home without eyeliner. I look weird without it. My fav is stila smudge pot or if im in a hurry tokidoki liquid pencil liner.

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?  Pure grape seed oil

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?  Every time i walk into sephora or any beauty store

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance.  Easy. Performance Performace performace!! But if the packaging is nice  and its glittery, i'm a sucker for it :smileysad:

4. Formula!

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

 

LORAC Couture Shine Liquid Lipstick in MUSE - this is my absolute favorite lip gloss.  It's the prettiest muted pink that looks so natural and works with everything. It's a no-brainer.

 

 2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

 

The Chanel range of products, the Glossimers in particular.  And actually, I more so wish that Sephora simply carried the entire collections (or at least more of it) of the top brands.  I realize that this is strategic, so that the other retailers have some competitive advantage, but it seems that more often that not, I have to go to Neimen's or Nordstrom to purchase certain (and often the most popular) colors in a range. 

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

 

Constantly.  I'm always in search of the perfect formula for me, and I've gone through many brands to find it.

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

 

Definitely Formula performance.  As much as I love fancy packaging and names, that's not what I'm putting on my face.

  1. What product can you not leave home without, ever? I never leave home without foundation on my face and as far as taking product with me, it would have to be lipgloss or lipstick.   2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry? Laura Geller eye spackle pen   3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands? Lots. I have tons of samples and try new things all the time.   4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance Formula performance. Who cares what the name is if it's an inferior product in the package.

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

 

Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens especially during the summer months!

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

 

Whew!  Where to begin?  Estee Lauder fragrances (including bath and body products); Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray; and several bath and body items from the Origins line especially the body oils.  However, I'm thrilled to see that more items have been made available from the Caudalie line.

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

 

Quite frequently especially after visiting this site and reading positive reviews for products I had never considered purchasing before.

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

 

Definitely formula performance!  Sometimes a brand name can be recommended based on my beauty profile but they may not necessarily be for me.

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever? I’d have to say Bare Minerals Bisque (It’s a great multitasker) and a nude lipstick.

 2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?  I’d love more hair lines such as the Wild Ginger Paul Mitchell line.

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands? Quite a bit. I am more likely to try when small travel sizes are available so commitment isn’t a big thing.

 4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance. Formula Performance for sure!!

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever? Lorac Tantalizer Bronzer! It gives my face a nice glow and has the perfect amount of color

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry? I love NYX lipsticks. Pretty shades and they have a nice price point.

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands? I always like checking online for new products and then swatching them in store as soon as I can. I find that it is a must because products can look very different online. I also like to check blogs and reviews to see what other people are saying about it.

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance  Performance is a must! Different brands have different strengths and weaknesses. I like mixing and matching:smileyhappy:

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?  Lipbalm, Powder and SPF Lotion of some kind

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?  Expansion of existing brands (I find that Sephora doesn't carry some of the non-makeup or skin care products of the existing brands on their website. For example, Origins has lots of bath and body products but these are not on Sephora).  A better range of shower gels and lotions at a lower price point.  I buy Kiehls and MAC outside of Sephora, but I don't know how realistic it would be to actually carry these brands at Sephor. On a positive, I have noticed some new brands being added and I think this is a great trend.

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands? Fairly often, especially deluxe samples.

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance: Performance.

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever? Lip treatment, right now it's Fresh Sugar's lip treatment

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry? I think they carry everything

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands? Not enough

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance? Formula performance

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

Hello Beauties!

1. I can't leave my home without putting on Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation
2. Redken. Love these hair products and they really work and are salon quality
3. I don't experiment often but am always expecting a change in some part of my routine
4. If I was forced to, I'd go by formula performance because some products from some brands really don't work

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. Something for my lips and/or blotting papers

2. The entire Dermalogica line and I would like to see more bb creams and tinted moisturizers with a higher spf.

3. I constantly experiment, especially when I have samples!

4. Duh! Formula performance, but I usually try products from brands of things I currently am using.

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

I agree with gymchic365, Dermalogica would be awesome at Sephora!
