I'm making this thread because I simply don't want to create a new thread for every little question that pops into my head, nor do I think that most questions need a separate topic. I had previously just dropped whatever random question that came to mind into the Random Thread (thanks jemly!), but I had been thinking about starting this for a while and figured I'd give it a shot to see if it could be of any use. I'm well aware that the people who could best utilize this thread will likely remain completely oblivious to it, but if it can consolidate even a small fraction of questions -- and maybe even generate some interesting conversations both beauty and non-beauty related -- that seems worthwhile. Official thread mascots: The Curious Puppies. Official thread anti-mascot: Lucille Bluth. It probably would've been wise of me to have a relatively inane question to use as an example and kick this thread off... Well, since I apparently don't have any pressing questions, I'll start with this two-parter: What's your favorite drug store nail polish shade AND which official mascot puppy is your favorite? Bonus/Extra Credit: What's it's name?

Hey guys, I had a pretty bad experience with the Tsubaki Glotion . It was nice for a few weeks, but I started breaking out after continuously using it for months, and I've never really had a breakout before. I am really into the natural dewy look. I've tried BB creams but I barely need coverage, if any at all. Do any of you have reccomendations for lotions that give you that dewy look that will last long, or super light BB creams? Thanks!
Ladies (and gentlemen!) Since Canada seems to be getting different/fewer brands added to the website, and any cross-border new releases seem to be several days to weeks later than US releases, I thought we could use our own 'what's new/found in the wild' post. Please feel free to share any new products/brands you find on the Canadian site here.
Posting this with disbelief that I bought a T3 blower dry 2 years ago and it blew up after about 1 1/2 years. Literally popped and blew up. Brought the first T3 blow dryer back to Sephora and they replaced it as they should when you pay $250 for a blow dryer!! New blow dry owned about 1 1/2 years again and I can't believe it the same thing blew up to the point that my dog in the adjacent room starting barking. This is crazy and totally unsafe!!! What's even more frustrating is that Sephora wouldn't return it and instead rejected the return and had me talking to TRE Customer Service who does nothing for you other than tell you to send a written problem statement that needs to be sent in writing via US Postal Mail. So disappointing and really mail in this day and age??? I'm on a website buying products but instead I need to dispute a $250 blow dryer blowing up by calling a customer support line and then getting an email that tells me to send a written response. Shame on you Sephora!!!! You should support your products and not make it tough on the consumer especially when T3 clearly is a faulty product.
Their popularity seems to be growing and with all the their brands why not have a thread dedicated to them!

I know many have noticed lately that Sephora has fallen off the wagon in regards to samples. In a major way. Today I received yet another order without the samples I requested. So I wondered, exactly how bad has it gotten? Since Nov. 6th I have placed 12 orders. That's 36 requested samples. Of that 36 I have received 11. Sometimes the samples were substitutions. Other times there have been no samples at all. Now, Sephora can claim that they disclose that "substitutions will be made for out of stock samples". All very well and good, but I have been a customer for over a decade. This recent sample fiasco has caught my attention because up until now I have received the requested samples nearly 100% of the time. I am also not stupid enough to think Sephora didn't see/anticpate a problem with the samples and thus removed requested sample listings from the invoices. (This is fairly recent.) So Sephora, why are you still letting us think we get to pick our samples when in fact we do not? Why is a sample I requested not being delivered with my order but still showing up days later as an available sample? (* cough* Sephora Collection Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes *cough* Maison Margiela Lipstick On *cough) I realize a free sample isn't something to get my undies in a bundle about... Generally speaking anyway, which is why I haven't said much over the past few months. Some of us though, live in smaller areas where brands like Maison Margiela aren't in store and we place an order specifically for that sample. When we don't receive it, it's a disappointment. When it happens over and over and over again over a period of months... well one starts to think you're either lying or you really need to get your #%$@ together.
For those who don't know what this is, it stands for Korean Beauty! Honestly, I'm surprised I don't see even more stuff posted about K-Beauty as it seems to be taking over right now. I hear nothing but good things about their skincare, makeup, etc! I recently got the Amorepacific cream as a 100 point perk and am really liking it for daytime moisture (although I think it may be better in the summer as I still feel a tad dry), and I hear good things about the Chosungah22 products which Sephora carries! I also recently made a giant order through a Korean retailer called Jolse, can't wait to get my stuff! Do you guys love K-Beauty? Do you have any reviews of stuff you've tried? I'm hoping to get this moving and that people will post in here regularly about skincare and cosmetics from Korea!
Hey everyone, I have been exclusively using the Laura Mercier Oil-Free Supreme Foundation for the past 5 years. It was discontinued last month and I have been searching for a similar full coverage foundation. I have gotten some good recommendations for full-coverage foundations from Sephora employees but nothing has really been comprable. So I am seeking out anyone who was also devastated by the discontinuation of the Oil-Free Supreme to give me suggestions for what is the MOST similar. My color was vanilla beige for reference. Thanks! Nikki
I hope that this is the right place to post this question. I have decided that I want/need a lighted vanity mirror. I have narrowed it down to the simplehuman 5X sensor mirror and the iHome 1X/7X dual sided Bluetooth mirror. It seems like the simplehuman mirror is most popular and best rated (not by too much depending where you look) and the lighting is brighter. The iHome one has a regular mirror and a magnified side, which I like that I can switch back and forth. The Bluetooth feature is nice, but not a big deal to me. The one downside of this mirror is the lighting isn't as bright. Or maybe it isn't such a big deal. I don't live near a store that carries either, so I don't know how bright the lights are or not. I'm just going by the Brightness specifications online. Can you help me choose? Which one do you like better?
I've been a VIB for a few years now, and my local Sephora is within walking distance of that "other" brand. I've heard rave reviews about their rewards program, most especially about their generous giving of free product with each new level reached and not samplers. Today, I headed to my Sephora store for the VIB event, got my bag loaded up, and then...went to Ulta. I was actually there to get a tube of NYX lip gloss since I've heard so much about it, but I went through the whole store out of pure curiosity. The verdict? While Ulta does carry drugstore brands and their rewards are pretty lofty in comparison...Sephora has my heart. Ulta felt too "superstore-ish". No offense, but a little...below...the standard and prestige of Sephora. So, Sephora, heed our call! Amp up our VIB rewards. Tidy up the shelves and demos in your stores (our store is a tad lacking in that dept.). And, keep up the great work! = )
Since Glossier launched its Phase 2 set today, I thought it would be a good time to start a thread for the brand. Plus, I'm a bit obsessed with its products. PROMOS: I have a referral link (you get 20% off, PM me for it). Buy the new Priming Moisturizer Rich and the Milk Jelly Cleanser together and save $5. Sometimes there are additional discounts and promos floating around IG. Tag me if you find one and I'll add it here. NEWS: Priming Moisturizer Rich, a richer (duh) face cream than the one in the original line. The original is my HG cream, so I wonder how this one will stack up. It's already lost points with me for the jar packaging, but let's hope it can make it up on the formula and results fronts. $35, 1.7 fl.oz. (the original is the same size and $10 cheaper).
In OLE HENRIKSEN no longer making the Grease Relief Cleansing Cloths? These are the wipes in the green pack. They have disappeared on Sephora and the OLE HENRIKSEN website. Is Truth on the Glow a good substitute? I love these wipes and now I cannot find unless I pay double or more on Amazon.ca.
I have dark circles under my eyes that need to go away. I'm not sure why I have them since I get enough sleep and none of my family members have intense dark circles. What eye cream(s) would you recommend? I'm 23 and I don't have wrinkles nor puffy bags under my eyes. I just need something for the dark circles. Any help is appreciated!!
Get ready for major Nudestix NUDENESS… Introducing the all-new Nudies Bronze + Glow TOMORROW!

Plus, they double up with a detachable buffing brush on the other end! Make sure to check back in first thing tomorrow morning and be FIRST to grab these cute lil’ things when they launch on Sephora.com !
So I noticed this new line of skincare products that both Sephora and QVC is carrying. Has anyone here used any of their products or personally heard good/bad things about the brand? I thought about purchasing the lip balm they have just to try the brand out. It appears to be an all natural line (which I can appreciate). Thanks in advance!
I'm torn between the becca highlighter in champagne pop and the ABH glow kit in sun dipped. $40 for a whole palette seems like a better deal than $38 for one color, but I have heard great things about champagne pop. Any opinions?
I'd like to hear some recommendations for a VEGAN face wash that you use that is similar to Philosophy's Purity: not a milk or oil cleanser, not foaming, but somewhere in-between like Purity, that doesn't dry out your skin but still cleanses well. Thank you!
I'm 29 years old with combination skin. I cleanse, moisturize, and use a lightweight serum daily. My skin is healthy and looks great bare, but as soon as I apply foundation, concealer, or even a BB cream, I suddenly have fine lines everywhere! They're especially bad around my eyes. It's incredibly frustrating because it makes me appear much older than I am. I don't even use full coverage products, just light coverage to even out my skin tone and give me a healthy glow. Could someone please recommend a primer that helps minimize fine lines? I'm not looking for an anti-aging product since they tend to have very harsh ingredients in them that my skin just doesn't need yet. I just want something that will fill in those fine lines, not settle into them.
I'm starting a thread specifically for PLAY! subscribers that want to find more of the products they love and have a place to give away the products they don't! I think since they are samples, we really can't "sell" the products to each other. But I think asking for shipping and "handling" may be appropriate. But please let's keep things realistic (i.e $1-2 handling fees, NOT $10). Rules: 1. Paypal only. Do no gift unless you know the person. 2. Honesty. Send what you say you're going to send. 3. State clearly what you're sending/trading for. If it's half gone, say so. 4. Communicate. 5. Be fair.
