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.
We've all felt the pain of those items that we would have gotten, should have gotten but now must pay way to much to buy from re-sellers. Maybe collective BT minds can identify (while still in stock) the limited edition must haves. My recents...the Dior Nude illuminating powder (spring 2016) is a pass. The Chanel Ribbon blush spring 2016) is a maybe. The YSL Gypsy Opale and Indie Jaspie (face powder and eye shadow) sold out within hours of the YSL site pre-release (it just went live on NM). Anyone have any thoughts on currently available or soon to be limited editions?

I am in the process of revamping my whole skincare routine and makeup as well since it was way overdue (I'm 27 and was still using the same things I had been when I started using makeup at 17 = yikes!). None of the prior products I used were really holy grail worthy products but simply the lesser of many evils since I am SOOOO ridiculously sensitive to ingredients and fragrances that it made finding anything better always seem so impossible (that was before I ever walked into a Sephora for the first time) One of the things I have been looking into to take my current routine to the next level is finding a really good serum. My skin has always been sensitive, acne-prone, and often see-sawed between overly dry when trying to treat the acne and end up with total overkill, to oily when my skin would try to compensate by increasing oil production, causing more breakouts, requiring more treatments, and the whole thing was just this nasty, vicious cycle. I am finally getting the breakouts under control but have quite a bit of the pit-type of scarring causing me to look older and also discoloration-type scars as well from fighting this for years. I also have dark circles under my eyes that are genetic so while nothing will likely completely eliminate them, I have been told at some points that where various eye creams have all failed to improve them, maybe a serum might help. I have been really intrigued by the idea of mixing your own custom serum to address your skin's specific needs since in the past I have at times mixed or made my own skincare products to get the best fit for my skin. However, when I took the quiz on the Skin Inc. site, it gave me two different results two different times I took the quiz and now is sold out of the one that was the same both times. I am pretty sure I answered it all the same way both times so I am hoping someone can help point me in the right direction. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me! I really appreciate it!
Ok. So I searched, randomly, on a bunch of KVD products that led me to this. Polyvore clearly has (had) a link to this product - and you need to clip products directly from the site you find it on? Has this mirror been out or what? This made me curious. I haven't seen any updates about it on the KVD beauty Instagram page either. Weird.
I've seen a few things floating around about subscription services, but I haven't seen one place to talk about the pros/cons and good/bad of the nice monthly boxes. I'm currently not subscribed to any, but I'm thinking of taking the plunge, so I'm basically trying to use you guys to figure out which would be the best and most beneficial. So, what's your favorite beauty box / subscription service? Why? Which boxes do you get the most use out of? Bang for your buck?
ive found myself swimming in samples from the "haul-idays". so in an effort to weed through them and maybe find some new loves for 2016 I think it's time for a new challenge! The challenge is simple: try 5 samples a week, then give a simple review. Love it, hate it, etc who's in?
It was released only 5 days ago, so I'm hoping it's not completely sold out already ;-; I've seen it pop in and out a bunch today, so that leads me to believe it should be restocked. I'd love to know, thanks! (I reaaaaaaaaally want to purchase it)
Since the VIBR sale is only a 4-day event this time, I think it might be a good idea to keep track of what's OOS and what's back in stock OOS Items: Burberry Gold palette All Herbivore products May Coop raw sauce KVD eyeshadow in thunderstruck, raw powder and synergy http://www.sephora.com/metal-crush-eyeshadow-P3979 23?skuId=1711050 Shiseido cotton pad http://www.sephora.com/facial-cotton-P173726?skuId =101220 Farmacy rise n shine http://www.sephora.com/rise-n-shine-daily-moisture -lock-P399971?skuId=1755032 Sephora SOKO to Tokyo Nude double dose of genius http://www.sephora.com/double-dose-genius-P402013? skuId=1738095
I keep seeing photos of sheet lip masks on Instagram and I really want to try one. Anyone have any recommendations? I recently saw a picture of a Sephora brand sheet lip mask on Instagram but they aren't available at the Canadian stores. Anyone know where they are available? I love their sheet face masks so I'd love to try their lip ones.
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!
So far I've been trying to resist the really expensive skincare brands like Omorovicza, Tata Harper or Sunday Riley....... but after trying the Flora oil I'm enamoured by Sunday Riley. The two new products are particularly tempting (I admit, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the name and packaging). The cleansing balm that just came out, Blue Moon, has anyone tried it? I have the Clinique balm, so I was wondering how it compares to that or Erborian or PTR 24K? And how well does it do as a one step cleanser or mask? And now there's Tidal (from SR instagram: Launching on Sephora.com 2/15, in store at Sephora nationwide 3/4!)
In 2015, I gave up on regular mascaras and exclusively bought tubing mascaras. Most were disappointments that clumped or flaked and were tossed out after a few uses. Blinc mascara remains the only mascara I'll travel with and after scrolling through my receipts, I realized I purchased 8 tubes in 2015! I currently have one in my gym bag, bathroom, travel bag, and a spare. Essentially, I can't go a day without it What product did you find yourself using or purchasing the most in 2015?
I used a sample of Philosophy's microdelivery triple-acid brightening peel and the directions said it can also be used on hands by swiping and rinsing after 3 minutes. I did that after using it on my face. I have rough hands for my age. Comes from not wearing gloves when cleaning and sun Im sure, maybe genetics some. Im always using anti-aging lotion and masks, but never a peel. Can other peels be used on hands and if so, what are the benefits? Anyone else do this?
Hello! I was just wondering if there was a good eye cream that anyone can recommend me? I'm 24 and I don't think I have wrinkles around my eyes but I have had bags for a long time and red under my eyes usually. I'm new to skincare and I recently bought the ginseng eye cream from origins. I don't think I really see my puffiness or redness under my eyes going away, even though it's supposed to brighten and depuff. I also received a sample from ole henriksen- ultimate eye lift crime- and it burned when I put it under my eyes. I did notice it lifted my under eye but I become worried because I noticed some of my veins in that area become more visible. I thought it was maybe too strong for my skin. So, if anyone has any recommendations for an eye cream that is good for your eyes and takes either redness or bags away, I would really appreciate it!
I recently received the Hope in a Jar night cream by Philosophy as a gift. When I opened it I noticed the product had a very foul scent, as if it had gone bad. It's a small 1.5oz container which came with skin care kit by Philosophy. Is there any chance I could exchange the Hope in a Jar night cream for a new one?
If I remember correctly, in past years Sephora has promoted skincare in January by offering extra points or promos. Does anyone know if there is anything like that happening this year? I know Sephora never likes to talk about their promos ahead of time, but sometimes we get early info here. I actually have a few skincare necessities to repurchase and I'm trying to hold out. It doesn't count against a low buy if it is a repurchase, right??
So I bought the holiday set foreo Luna, which is a big box with a box of Boscia stuff and a box of foreo luna in it. The foreo luna box came with: - pamphlet, registration card - a pouch - the foreo luna - a foreo plug to usb cable ...... but no usb to wall charger. It's a full size Foreo Luna, which means it should come with a real charger that can plug into the wall instead of a usb cable, right???
I know many ppl besides me have been complaining up and down about how annoyingly messy this packaging is. It's pretty impossible to use every last drop. So I emailed Cover FX directly and here is the response I got. I hope this new wiper thing she mentions will really improve the bottle.
