If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

 

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

No.  I never get makeovers at any store and don't understand why stores keep offering it.  I'd think it draws in people who rarely buy makeup but is less compelling for those who do.  

Coupons I'd actually use…so I agree with most others below.

I'd prefer a high value coupon that can be used online or instore. I find that i travel for my birthday so i may not have time to come in for a makeover

I used to live in Alaska so lived 8 hrs away from the nearest Sephora.  Though a complementary makeover would be nice and the free bday items are a bonus, I would love to see a discount off a purchase!  Or maybe one item.

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I would also prefer a coupon of some sort. I don't live close to a Sephora, so I online shop!

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

No, I'd prefer a discount certificate such as 20% off entire purchase.

I would totally go, what a fun idea for before a birthday party or dinner!

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I'd rather have some sort of discount or coupon. I'm not sure if I'll ever take advantage of the free makeovers that  Rouges get. First of all, I have sensitive eyes and have eye allergies/infections frequently. It makes me nervous having anyone use brushes/products on my eyes that have been used on others. I'm unsure how clean they actually are. In addition, I'm very conservative and try to be what I consider to be age appropriate for me. Most of the staff that I see in my Penneys Sephora are younger and a bit more adventurous than I am with colors. They look beautiful, but it's out of my own personal comfort zone. 

 

My my loves list is getting to be a mile long, so a discount of some sort would be highly appreciated and put to good use.

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I agree with what some other epople have said that a discount would be much better! I've been a Rouge since December and I've never gone for a makeover. I'm scared that they'll mess up and make me look awful or I'll break out from the products/brushes. I'm not sure how well they clean things before they use them on people!

I think it depends on the store. The one I go to, the girls are pretty talented. One of them has won for competitions...

Its good to try "different" looks and techniques that I might not think for myself. Sure not all of them are amazing, but sometimes I learn a thing or two. How someone else sees you is interesting, they might see something or do something out of your comfort zone but it might not be so bad when you actually do it.

I DO understand about the cleanliness issue. I saw one girl not clean her brushes which made me nervous. The one girl I normally go to is super clean and I usually ask her for recomendations on the other girls if she isn't available Smiley Tongue

I used a complimentary makeover when I was upgraded to VIB Rouge.  The girl at my local Sephora didn't really do anything I couldn't do at home.  She actually made some major mistakes that I had to fix before I went out.  Over all a huge waste of my time.   

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I would say no, I've had makeover coupons which I never used. I would rather have a free sample or discount. Unfortunately, Sephora doesn't offer any privacy when getting makeovers or consultations. You're in the middle of the store where everyone is walking by and seeing everything. It's just not my thing.

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I will agree with the other posters that a birthday gift or bigger discount is more of a treat than a makeover. The only store in my entire state is inside of a mall that is over run with teenagers. The sales staff have to take too much time monitoring for shoplifters, and even while with me at the beauty studio, they will get up and leave to help other customers or "check up" to make sure no one is stealing!

It is incredibly hard to feel special or pampered when you get ditched repeated by SA's in the middle of creating a "look."; not to mention pretty darn rude. 

 

A makeover would definately not work for me!

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I'd like a $10 off coupon like they do at Christmas. I never use the percent ones because I normally don't buy enough at one time for them to take more than a few dollars off a purchase. By the time I pay for shipping or gas it doesn't make it worth it. 

 

I like the idea of a makeover but I've never redeemed one. Calling ahead and making an appointment is difficult because my store is a few towns over and I never know when I'm going to be up there to do it. I'm not likely to make a special trip even though it sounds like fun. 

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

Probably not.  I did the makeover once.  On top of the fact that I left with a huge rash (not her fault as I have sensitive skin and did not even think to tell her to limit new products to one), I did not like the way I looked when I left.  I tend to do my makeup with a more natural look, and she went a little overboard.

 

I like the idea of choosing your own deluxe birthday perk.  Having more mascara than I can possibly use, I would not have chosen a kit that included yet another one.

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

probably not... i live in the middle of nowhere, making a trip to sephora typically involve a long drive...

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

Same here.

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

No, going to an actual Sephora store is a haul for me,I am talking a drive that would take a few hours in total. I think getting 1 free item of choice, up to a certain price, would be great or letting us pick the colors of the items or item they give out as a birthday gift. Just a thought..I have not read the responses to the post, I am just answering the question.

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I'd love it.  As a crossdresser I need all the help I can get.  I love the attention and suggestions the excellent  the makeup artists at Sephora give me. 

Re: If Sephora offered a complimentary in-store Makeover to celebrate your Birthday, would you go?

I'd much rather see a discount offered. I'd also like choices for the birthday gift instead of the same thing for everyone. Maybe not a huge difference, but having minis available and getting to choose the lippie that suits you, or a flattering eyeliner or something would be better than a one size fits all approach.
