Hi everyone!!! This is a follow up post to my male celebrity crushes post from a few weeks ago! If you could marry any male celebrity, who would it be? I would marry Henry Cavill. That man is fineeeeeee. But he's 12 years older than me I have him as my phone background and my computer screen saver 3, 2, 1, GO!!!! P.S. I really should be studying for my finals but, I'm too stressed, tired, and don't want to anymore. :/
I can't throw them away because that's wasteful and can't recycle because of the perfumes. P.S. This is a light-hearted complaint. I know Sephora can't keep track if I've gotten the flyer or not. Can someone help with ideas on how to use these? I have one: lightly scent tissue paper for great smelling gifts.
I'm stumped on ideas for small gifts to buy my kids' teachers. Any teachers out there who could tell me what gifts you love to receive? Any ideas are appreciated! 2 of the teachers are male mid-to-late 20's. 1 female early 20's and 1 female late 30's. edit - My children attend a Lutheran school so Christmas/religious themed gifts would be appropriate.
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
Hey girls, I was at the mall today and on my way to Sephora and this young representative for a new brand called ' Orogold Cosmetics ' approached me. The store is very sleek and luxurious and looks like it's catered to high end clientele. She was ' testing ' out some products she recommended for me on my wrist. Then tried to con me into purchasing the products which I said no and would consider coming back. I go to their website and they are selling skincare that is for people who have MEGA BUCKS !. I get that it's 24K gold inside your stuff but selling it in a mall where I live ain't going to fly unless your rich. I'd suggest they go to Yorkville where the most ELITE shop in Toronto. What I found disturbing is that she's trying to say my purchases are going to irratate my skin and that the Amore Pacific stuff isn't as good. I don't care if you got 24K S**T in there I ain't buying it !. PLEASE AVOID THIS BRAND, THEY WILL SCAM YOU AND HARASS YOU !!!
So every year around this time I start watching Christmas movies. Some I own some I watch on TV. What are some of your favorites Christmas movies? Mine are: Elf A dog named Christmas Santa Claus the movie (this is an old one) Miracle on 34th Street The Santa Clause 1 and 2 On the 2nd day of Christmas (which I can't seem to find anymore) Updated... I forgot too many While You Were Sleeping Die Hard (1, 2, 3... might as well watch all 3 "originals") All I want for Christmas Christmas Vacation Home Alone Christmas with the Kranks The Family Man Toy Story (Favs are 1 and 3) Jingle All The Way. I love Arnold! Looks Who's Talking Now.
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. - I forgot to mention that The Bay will be hosting Beauty Gala's this coming week. You have to buy a ticket but out of the 10$ 2 goes to charity and 8 towards your purchase. Some counters give free stuff when you buy the ticket from them. You get your make-up done too at that counter I'm going and very excited about it! EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON
Assume, for the sake of this discussion, that sunscreen is provided miraculously, and doesn't need to be a concern. My picks: an OCC lip tar (probably Harlot). A single tube will last you FIVEVER, and that's a nice bright color that'll suit the climate. ( http://www.sephora.com/lip-tar-P376506?skuId=14553 10) Urban Decay 24/7 liquid eyeliner in Perversion ( http://www.sephora.com/24-7-waterproof-liquid-eyel iner-P292015?skuId=1348697) A black mascara (I am terrible for going between brands--I have not found any one I'm totally loyal to and in love with enough to list here.) And I would be slathering my face in sunscreen regularly to maintain my deathly pallor fair complexion.
Hi BTers, I'm sharing this with you because I know you will understand the motivation and will be supportive. I was looking at my budget last night because I'm revamping it for grad school and I set myself a budget of $35 a month for makeup/skincare/beauty etc. And then I noticed that I spend about $230 on cigarettes every month. I tried to quit this summer but because of some ridiculous academic stress it didn't happen. But starting on Sunday I'm going to start again and for every dollar I save on cigarettes I am going to put $0.50 in my makeup budget. So by the time I quit all the way (I'm doing a gradual step-down) I will have an additional $115 in my makeup budget. I can't spend forever with that kind of makeup budget but maybe through the VIB sale in November then I will re-assess my new cigarette free budget. I'm hoping my desire to buy Mario Badescu facial products and more YSL lip products will be strong motivators for me to cut down on my cigarettes. Anyway, thanks for listening Ladies and Gents, I just wanted to share my quitting plan with people who would understand why makeup is such a strong motivator.
hey there friends! today, I'd like to talk about how you can earn freebies and samples by just going to the mall, Ive recently noticed some huge deals going on (yesterday bath and body works was having a buy three get three free anything sale, for the first time!) and was wondering if y'all wanted to converse about some great sales and deals that you can get during your Christmas shopping right now you can get a free trial size Clinique chubby stick colour balm from your Macy's Clinique counter and also if you spent 10$ or more in the past few wekks at Victoria secret you get a free secret reward card which is now eligible for redeeming and may contain the value between 10$ to 500$ off your purchase (mine is ten) and im going to find something under ten dollars or close too it. Ive found a travel size mist and a cute tote bag from pink for 11.50 with the secret reward card it is only 1.50! double that with a pink nation coupon for a free panty with any pink purchase, and you have over 34$ worth of Victoria secret merchandise for less then two dollars! so tell me what deals you gal's find and what your hoping to score in your Christmas shopping! happy holidays and buckets of love, skye <3
Did anyone else get sucked in to Ulta's cyber monday and still not even get a shipping notice? I never order from Ulta but they had some gifts I missed out on or didn't have at Sephora (the $10 Art of Shaving kit for my BIL, a $19 Bare Minerals kit for my SIL) and the free gift looked nice. I ordered just after midnight on sunday night/monday morning and it still says "order processing" and since it's been 5 days the pending charges aren't even on m CC anymore. I know other people are having the same issues because their Facebook page is blowing up and they sent an email out letting everyone know they are experiencing delays. They said it will still be here within 10 business days (which is really 2 weeks) but I am not confident my order will complete or have the free gift (if something is OOS it will mess up my christmas shopping because I thought I was done). I get it's shopping season, but in comparison, all my other holiday orders have been here for a few days. My Sephora CM order that I placed late on Monday got here Wednesday. My giftopia order was only 1 or 2 days behind, which wasn't bad at all. I'm on day 6 with Ulta. Anyone else having holiday shipping woes or get sucked into Ulta? I knew I was a Sephora girl before, but I can say with confidence now that Sephora > Ulta. Plus, Sephora's CS has always been good to me. Ulta doesn't seem to be handling this well.
Good morning, dolls! Let's start the day off with a random quiz: 1. What plans do you have for the weekend? Going to go out to eat and hang out with my coworker/friend. 2. If you could wear one perfume for the rest of your life, what would it be? This is a tough one, but I think I am going to have to Say Gucci Envy Me. 3. Are you an only child? If not, how many siblings do you have? No, I have three siblings; two brothers and one sister. 4. Have you got all your holiday shopping done? Nope; I still need to order a couple of other stuff for the family. 5. What special holiday meal will you be enjoying this year? Glazed ham with honey, mashed potatoes and gravy.
I don't understand why people think I'm mean if I'm just being myself. Is it because I'm an introvert? Have darker interests? Or because I dresss in all black? It's probably that and because I'm quite the honest person, I'm not sugar-coating anything, that just being a dishonest person. I guess I'll always have to deal with it since I'm always getting made fun of. Has something like this happened to you?
So, I'm in the midst of the college application process and I was writing essays for Brown U and one of the questions posed was in regard to a community that I valued and I started my essay by mentioning Sephora's Beauty Talk. ^.^ You ladies mean a lot to me if you sneak into my applications to Ivy Leauge schools!
With cell phones and the portability of digital cameras, I'd say most of us have taken a spur of the moment picture that comes out awesome or of something hilarious. I figured it'd be cool to have a thread to share some photos like that. Here are some I picked from my Facebook for the first post. On my way back to my college apartment one weekend, I came across this. I normally do not mess with my iPhone when driving, but I HAD to take a picture of this! People just amaze me at times. When I uploaded it, I gave it the captian "Haulin' that Power Wheel truck, like a boss!!" lol. All that was holding it to the roof were a couple of bungee cords. A screenshot of one of my Words with Friends games. No longer is it a planet, but it's not a word either. Kind of sad. From the past weekend. What's funny is that Foxy didn't try to get it off. I honestly think she liked it. She's sassy and loves attention lol.
hey guys i would love it if we did a beauty box so we could share the beauty products and give the rest to chart or shelters. if you are interested please pm me. i would like this to be in the los angeles area because of time and money. TY!
Okay so over the past few weeks I think I've watched one too many Hallmark holiday movies, animated shows and network specials. I have been all about the holiday decorations and have been scouring Pinterest for ideas. Over the past 2 days I've been feverishly gathering decorations, making a wreath, stringing ornaments and decorating my porch. For the past two days it looked like I was glitterbombed by one of Santa's elves. Who else out there has been decorating for the holidays? Here's what I ended up with.
This was mentioned on another thread as a tangent but I thought it deserved its own thread. Am I the only one who struggles so much when people ask what I want as gifts at this age (24). The only things I want/need are either in the super expensive or super cheap (socks, toilet paper) category. Gift cards I find super impersonal giving so I rarely ask for them. I feel super guilty asking for either. Am I the only one who has this struggle?
This is off topic but i noticed a ShopKick post awhile back and i do use it! But i am loving Viggle. It the same concept as shopkick where you check in and get points to redeem things. But you do it with Tv shows! I don't know about you ladies but i watch plenty of TV! You just sync it to your tv, it catches what your watching and you get a point for every minute you watch it! They have featured shows where you get more point as well! I think it is great! I've had this already for a few days and have 1,500 + points! You get gift cards you can redeem for a certain amount of points. For instance Starbucks gift cards are 12,500 points, and i assume it would be a $10 gift card. And they have a Sephora Gift Card for 20,000 points! I think i will be there in no time! Anyone else use this or think they will now??!!!
Hello my beautiful people!!! I just reached 2,000 hearts! YAY!!! And I got no shame, I am going to throw myself a Heart Party!!! Ain't no party like a Beauty Talk Party, cause Beauty Talk Party don't stop! (Yes, I am quoting Coolio ) I absolutely love Beauty Talk and I am so happy to call you all my Beauty Talk Family. Also, I am so grateful that BT has brought me closer to a few members that I am honored to call a true friend for life!! And everyone gets a pink Chanel cupcake!!! YAY!!! Love you all!!!
So, I was thinking this morning about the sheer amount and variety of products Sephora has to offer, and the shipment times being so fast, how do they organize their cosmetics so efficiently? Item codes, brands, color shades? If you had a warehouse amount of cosmetics, how would you organize them?
There have been too many serious threads lately--let's start a fun one! If there was no dress code and no social norms, what look would you rock daily? I would wear glitter eyeshadow non-stop! Throwback to the Sephora 2009 holiday catalog!
I would like to see: Chanel Kielhs Burberry Armani Juice Beauty Cargo YBF Beauty I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Dermalogica! Hopefully other people want these brands and maybe we can get some into Sephora stores!
Hi all beauties! I have been looking through google, blogs/reviews and youtube about this Conair curl secret. I was wondering if any of you have bought it and want to ask how you like it. It is kinda pricey for a curling iron. But is it really worth it? Thank you in advance!
