Charleston, SC opening date
Hello! I found out that Sephora is opening a standalone store in Charleston, SC. Exciting! But when is the date? Will there be an event? I asked on facebook a week or so ago and was given a link to sign up to receive e-mails, which is not what I needed. I already get e-mails and I was never notified of this new store. I would love more info! With the lack of events I would LOVE to attend an opening. Thanks!

I e-mailed Dior an inquiry I had pertaining to Dior Diva and this was also included their reply:   " As of recently it has been announced that the Dior Diva Reward Program will reach it's final cycle for both United States and Canadian customers & retailers by of the end of this calendar year. All final entries must be submitted towards the program no later than December 22, 2015. Your current Dior Diva account balance, banked points and/or any additional receipts with purchases made prior to October 2015 would still be valid towards the program and redeeming rewards. However, all points must be claimed by December 22nd, 2015- as points will not carry over into the new year. You may redeem from or add to your points as you wish. When you are ready to l send in your receipts, please fill out the form (included with this email) and mail it and your accompanying receipts to our office "   It's incredibly unfortunate to see it end having only known about the loyalty program for only a few months.

Hi i have a question for you.
Hello, I was wondering for a while, what do you need to know, to work at sephora? I am not wanting to apply to a job, but this has been a question that has been running through my mind for a  while now.  Do you have to be at a certain age, or know how to apply makeup very well? thanks so much for your support!                              -Dena

HORRIBLE customer service @ Stonetown SF,CA
I often go to my old local store in Burlingame, CA which i always get an awesome services ..unfortunately i moved to Daly city, CA so iI visited the stone town SF, CA store.. what a horrible experience i when in on NYE for a 10-15 mini over eye look. first they said it was pretty busy that there was a wait of 30 min i said that's ok i can wait 30 min which ended up being 1 hr 30 min i was still understandable because it was NYE and all i wanted it was a quick eye. finally they were ready for me: make up artist JENNIFER, started doing my eyes, i asked for a goldenish color, first she was very rude saying that she only had like 10 min to do my eyes because they were about to close, second thing she asked me if i was purchasing products that day(since when you need to purchases products for a 15 min mini over???) i said no she kinda gave me attitude because she said manager told her to do mini overs on customers who only was making a purchase. i was ok whatever I'm a VIB and for what i understand i don't need to make a purchase to get a mini over!! finally she finished my eyeshadow and i asked if she could do an eyeliner to finish the look cz i was already for my event she ruddily said no that the was a separate service and then i could only do one at a time.. i was like what??? right so i asked again if she could just do it and explained that i was already late for my event and i just wanted to a quick liner.. she say NO AGAIN!! so i said ok i get it thanks anyways for the "HELP" after this horrible customer service..I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS STORE AGAIN!!! I'll just have to drive up far to my old Burlingame Sto

We dont get make-up products from NARs, Bobby Brown, Laura Mercier, Smash box, Makeup Forever, Chanel, etc in Sephora India stores..
Hello Sephora team,   Why Sephora India is not keeping the brands like NARs, Bobby Brown, Laura Mercier, Smash box, Makeup Forever, Chanel, etc. Sephora has already opened stores in 3 cities in India but we see the same stuffs avaialble in Sephora which we used to see in other malls and shopping outlets.. We want the above mentioned brand products and we are unable to get them in India. Thats why we stick to MAC products currently. If you understand this issue, please stock you store with brands like  NARs, Bobby Brown, Laura Mercier, Smash box, Makeup Forever, Chanel, YSL, etc. Otherwise, keep these stuffs available in ONLINE atleast. We see a different standard of Sephora abroad altogether and when we look at the brands available in Sephora India, we get disappointed as we want to buy the above mentioned make products. And Amazon is the only way to get them here. But we love sephora abroad but in india we dont see the same standard over here. Very disappointed.   Thanks, Kavita

How have your return experiences been?... mine was awful today
It's very rare for me to do a return. Because I don't experiment with new products. I've been using the same products for years.  I believe I have the best. (I'll experiment with samples here and there and thats it)   Anyways, I'm hitting that age right now where I need to start using anti-aging products and I literally thought I found the 'one' when my shipment came in.  A sephora associate suggested that I get it because it's the best, I told her I'd think about it.   Long story short I ended up ordering it online a nd after a week of using it - It made me break out so badly. At first when I started seeing the breakouts they were minor, but gradually increased as I continued using the product. This product was the only new regimene added to my nightly routine so I knew it was the culprit. The next day I went to return it.   The first thing the girl does is see if I have any items in my hands. No hello's or hi's, how are you. Which was odd. I proceed to let her know that I'm here to return this item. She opens it up and inspects it really carefully and rudely tells me that one of the 'creams is practically empty'. When really there was barely a quarter of it used.  I let her know I only had it for a week. I'm here because it made me break out - and I was pointing to the areas it messed up my skin. She starts to whisper to the girl next to her, and they're just staring at me up and down while talking to each other. (It was in a way where it pretty much looked like they were trying to figure out if I was abusing their return policy based on my appearance) Then she tells me that she's going to ask her manager whether or not it could be returned.    I waited for her, for 5 minutes just to see her walking around trying to track down her manager.     She then comes back after walking around in circles, because I guess she couldn't find the manager and tells me  'You can't use pretty much the entire cream and then expect us to accept it. I'll let you do the return today but next time it won't happen.'    I don't normally vent about these things. I understand the policy and I know I did nothing wrong. The products were gently used, I had my receipt on me as well.  Her customer service skills were horrible, her approach to this situation was very juvenile.

leaHow do Sephora employees clean their brushes between makeovers?
How often do they clean them and what do they use? Or do they just switch brushes out because obviously they can't use the same brush on one customer and then using on another without washing them.

Typically a brush cleaner and alcohol are used to clean and disinfect between clients. As far as deep cleaning goes, every night.  see post

Skincare Essentials Class
I went to the Skincare IQ class this morning at Pearlridge Mall here in Hawaii and i HIGHLY recommend the class! Especially if you are looking to revamp your routine or if you already have a routine on lock and just want to test out some different products! (like I have been dancing around buying a Foreo Luna, I already have a Clarisonic so I got to try the Luna today with some products to really get a feel without having to buy it!) The staff at that location is AMAZING! They recommended different techniques and products to me that really made a difference with my skin. I worked with Nicole a few weeks ago looking for new lipstick, she was one of the reps at the class and she immediately remembered me. It made me feel valued as a customer! She is my new bff because I feel like she gives me an honest opinion about what is and isn't working on me (everyone one needs a Nicole on their team) My skin was so well prepped that my makeup went on smoother than butter! I will definitely sign up for more classes with them in the future! If you have never been to a class PLEASE sign up for one asap. Seriously guys. You have nothing, NOTHING to lose but everything to gain!

Mystery shopper
Sephora need to randomly choose some of the VIB/ rouge to be mystery shoppers in the stores. Not the ones they frequent but different ones to see how they are treated.

Too Faced Cosmetics Customer Service
My apologies in advance for my rant.    I want to make y'all aware of the awful experience I've had dealing with Too Faced (direct), which is especially disappointing given the amount of money I've spent on their products.   On Cyber Monday, I placed my second order ever with TF direct to take advantage of their half off sale items promo and their Cyber Monday mystery bag.   When my order arrived on 12/08, one of the palettes I ordered was missing, although I was charged.   3 phone calls and 1 email later, I still have not received my refund from them, although a supervisor swears the refund was issued yesterday (after she hung up on me a few minutes ago and then called me back).  I am not holding my breath.   The worst part is that no one apologized or even acknowledged the inconvenience of having to call 3 times and email when they messed up in the first place.   I would like to spare anyone else from going through something similar.     Has anyone else had a bad experience dealing with Too Faced Cosmetics' (lack of) Customer Service reps?

Sephora Experience at Sephora Sofia, Paradise Mall
Dear Sephora HQ,   I can fully agree with the opinion for Sephora The Mall from the previous post. They are really incredibly nice. Unfortunately I can not give the same feedback for the Location in Paradise Mall. Yesterday my fiancee and her sister went into the store. Unfortunately they accidentally broke 4 Sephora shower gels. Even though the shower gels were standing at some really frame-built counter and it was not very hard for them to fall, they appologized and were willing to pay for what they broke. They also wanted to buy some other products. What I could not understand is why the deputy manager(as she introduced herself) Nadezhda, started shouting at them and asking who would clean the mist now. My fiancee and her sister appologized again and again expressed their willingness to pay for what was broke and also to buy the other products they had in their basket. The "deputy manager" Nadezhda continued shouting at them and made them wait several minutes ат the pay desk until she was cleaning. Please, if you dont want to lose your customers in the location, talk with her about her attitude or send her to some customer service training. We are used to the great Sephora service we receive in the locations in Italy, France and Germany, where we are regular customers. The service in Sofia, The Mall is also great. And exactly that is why we are so schocked from the attitude of someone who is also having a supervising role and is a replacement for the store Manager. Unfortunately her Manager is on vacation until tomorrow and I couldn't reach her.     Best Regards, Milen Drenski

Hi! I have an item that has been untouched that I bought in store sometime in November. Unfortunately, I can't find the receipt, however the store I contacted said to find a proof of purchase in my account but my purchases only shows after December 1st.

Sephora experience at Sephora,Bulgaria (The Mall location)
Dear Sephora HQ, i am starting this topic because this just needs to be said. At Sephora in Sofia abd more specificly The Mall shopping center,you cast member are beyond amazing, you just really need to give them a present. Everytime i set a foot in the particular store i feel celebrated,I literally feel as if my mom owns this place,(yeah,they are that friendly). Every single time no matter rush hour or dead hour there is always smile on their face and tip on their tongues,i can give you a million examples of personal experience with them. I usually browse often there i have never seen the cast memebers talk with friends or family members usually to conversations go like "hey , do you think i gave a good advice to that lady , or i hope she likes the product..." i once was moanig to a friend how terrible i am at doing my cat eye and as i say it a cast member grabs my hand sits me at a chair and starts explaing why i was unable to make it perfect how i can make my technique better and etc... 1:30h hour later i perfect my eyeliner technique, and the store oh lord its the cleanest store i have ever set a foot at, i could literally go and lick the floor with no hesitation, its that clean.They have never mistreated me or any of their customers, and you never get surrounded with cast members who would think that you are there to steal, not even once ! And this is amazing! I dont have anything in common with the staff or sephora there but the love for make up/perfumes its heart melting.

Price adjustment on purchase?
Hi! I have a question regarding price adjustments. I purchased a Clarisonic Mia 2 on March 30th. I then received an email coupon for 15% off through April 10th. I called the 877 number and was told the only way to get a credit for the difference would be to return it and purchase it again with the coupon, since the coupon was not valid at the time of my purchase. Is there a way to do it without returning it? I also have a 20% off coupon from another retailer, but I would rather keep the product I already purchased. That $23 would really mean a lot to me =)
