To Cancel or Not to Cancel Sephora Play Box
I've become increasingly disappointed with the Play boxes. Anyone else feel the same? Partly because I feel the boxes contents are predictable for example, you'll get a face primer about every other month (or even every month). Which may be great for people who can use primers, but my skin loathes them (yes my Play profile is updated and correct). Throw it in the trash. If you get a makeup sample it is in some obscure color that may be fun to try on one time, but you're not walking out of the house with it on. Throw it in the trash. See the pattern, I pretty much throw almost everything I get in the trash. BUT every once in a while you'll get a gem of a sample and that just reinforces me to want to keep subscribing. When Play first came out I felt like there was better samples being sent, but now it's just whomever they have a deal with. Should I just hang in there and ride out this rough patch? Thoughts?

Victoria Secret Haul
I bought three bralettes from victoria sceret they only costed me 38 dollars for three so they have a sale on bralettes if you buy two  of them.I didnt like how the bralettes looked online they look much better in person .I wasnt planning on buying bralettes but when I saw them I was like I need to have them their cute.I got a pink one an orange one and a yellow one.   I was planning on buying a bra but they didnt have any colors I liked in my size in the 32DDD the colors were like black , tan and really boring so I said forget it.If I'am paying 50 to 60 dollars for a bra it better be a color I like.   I went to a huge Victoria Secret so the PINK and the Victoria Secret were seperate stores which was annoying because the line in the PINK store had about 20 people in it .I wanted to buy a tank top that said PINK in pink letters and was heather grey but said forget it when I saw the line was insane. They didnt have any MAJOR sales so I didnt really understand why everyone was buying VS items today.   The semi annual sale is in June / July coming up not now.I hate shopping with large crowds I prefer when stores are close to empty or no one is in line.   Plus UPDATE rant included : I ended up getting the pink tank the light grey one in the small which was the last one by the way with the pink writing on it .I ended up having to go to two pink stores to get that top which was a pain IN MY you know what and a living nightmare.     So this morning ( today )  I go and see this promo in my email buy two bras get a free white tank top with the words angel in pink writing on it a 25 dollar value.SO I liked the tank and I didnt want to buy two bras for full price for  117 dollars thats right I looked it up and it was not a deal at all.   SO I go to the store and ask hey I know this sounds weird but can I just buy / get the tank top without buying the bras which would of been a sale  for them anyways because it would have been around 40 dollars. I was already buying a tank top the lady said NO okay thats fine but you lost out on my money since I was trying to buy a free tank for a vaule of 25 dollars which means she would of charged me 25 dollars for the tank anyways and would of got cash money but whatever.Not to be mean but the lady was a B**** she could of charged me for the " free " tank top and made a sale instead she made a huge deal about it I felt like I was asking starbucks for a unicorn frappuccino she just was in no way going to do it.RIDICULOUS I was soo annoyed I traveled that far for two tank tops only to get one. I would of paid for the tank in full that was free when you buy two expensive over priced bras.       At Victoria Secret you would think I was asking to be a VS model LMAO  the girl who I'am assuming was the manager wouldnt give me a victoria ssecret shirt that said angel on it for a 25 dollar value because I didnt buy two bras with it and she claimed it only comes with two bras she wouldnt let me just buy the shirt seperately. She lost out on a sale and money because she was not intelligent enough to understand I was paying for the shirt lmao their was profit to be gained.SEE I just have no tolerance for that type of service.

Best and Worst Products of all Time
This thread may have already been started, but I'll be honest, I didn't check because my browser has been really slow!   Anyways this thread is to discuss everyone's favourite and least favourite product of all time. Try to only name 1 product for each!   My Absolute favourite beauty item is the KVD Mi Vida Loca palette. It just stands out in my mind as my favourite. I just love it so much!   ... And the least would have to be any eyelash curler that isn't nickel-free! I know it isn't a specific product, but I just can't stand when contact dermatitis develops on my eyelids! Nickel allergies aren't fun

Thank you Sephora, Milk Makeup, Dior and Tocca for the lovely spring goodies!
Hey everyone! I was chosen to get some stuff for free to try from Sephora!  The items are: Milk Makeup highlighters in Mars and Supernova Dior Pump and Volume Mascara Tocca Stella hair fragrance     I have tried the Milk highlighters and swatched them on my arm as well as on both of my cheeks for you guys.  I really love both! They apply well and don't stay feeling sticky on the cheeks after application.  I think that Mars is great if you want something more natural/subtle, while Supernova is great for a sort of extra terrestrial feel .  It was super hard to capture Mars in my photos though, but it is a sort of orangey color with a reddish shimmer (think Fireball by Urban Decay).  It looks super great and natural once on the face though!   Spoiler (Highlight to read) As for the Dior mascara, I haven't tried it yet but I opened it to check out the brush! I'm curious how it'll work for me.. I hope well! It doesn't look like other mascaras which I find myself using more often (think of an hourglass shaped brush with more dense bristles), but maybe this one will surprise me  Photo in spoiler!   Spoiler (Highlight to read) EDIT: Just tried the mascara on one eye... Omg..  LOOK AT MY LASHES. One eye has nothing and the other has two coats of the Dior mascara (applied one coat, then waited about 10 seconds before applying the next- no curling or primer used). This is amazing, wow. Sorta in shock, and if this doesn't flake and go wild, this is my new HG.     And finally the hair fragrance! I got it in Stella and omg it smells so good.  I sprayed one spray in my hair and it's lingering with me and all I can smell! It's very feminine and floral, it's quite sweet too and I think it smells stronger than many of my regular perfumes.  I think this is something I'll spray onto my hair on windy days so the wind can lift my hair and spread the scent haha.   Thank you so much for all of this Sephora! It really made me happy (especially with my low-buy and such lol).

Thank you! I was so, so happy to find one of those purple-y shifty highlights that actually works on me!    see post
Would You Rather: The Sephora Edition Part II
It's been a few months since I had created the original thread and I figured since it went over so well that it's about time to launch a second version!   For those wanting to check in on the chaos from part 1, here you go: /Would-You-Rather-The-Sephora-Edition/m-p/2674243/ ...   The rules are simple, you must make a choice between the options given. You can justify it however you want, but you can't alter the initial circumstances. In other words if the option is "Would you rather glitter get stuck in your eye every day or have your hair caught on lip gloss every day?" you can't say "Well, I don't wear lip gloss anyway so I go with that option!" By choosing the lip gloss, that means you'd have to put on lip gloss to eventually have your hair get caught on it.   Obviously this game is just for fun (no one is going to force you to apply lip gloss and have your hair get caught in it ), so with that being said, game on! Feel free to post responses in a spoiler tag if you're not wanting to have your answers in a long, visible post!       WOULD YOU RATHER;   1. Only be able to cash in on any promo with no spending minimums with a guarantee that whatever promo will be in-stock, but have to never get the annual discounts of $X and X% off every again OR only be able to cash in on the $X and X% off discounts and have to deal with spending minimums for promos, but run the risk of stock running out?   2. Only be able to use singles (eye shadow pans, blush pans, bronzer pans, lipstick bullets, etc.) for the rest of your life OR only be able to use palettes (concealer palettes, eye shadow palettes, blush palettes, lipstick palettes, etc.) for the rest of your life?   3. Have to wear a matte lip with a metallic eye look OR  a matte eye look with a metallic lip for the rest of your life?   4. Go through the day with one set of eye lashes glued down together from a failed false lash application OR go through with red lipstick smeared on your chin all day?   5. Swatch every single shade of liquid lipstick on your lips and wear it for 24 hours OR  apply a coat of every single shade of nail polish on your nails and wear it for 24 hours?   6. Wear a shade of Anastasia's Dip Brow that is 2 shades too light for your hair/brow color OR 2 shades too dark for your hair/brow color?   7. Wash all of your makeup brushes and all the brushes of your friends for 1x a week for an entire month OR have to just buy brand new set of brushes for yourself and all your friends who use brushes?   8. Lose a Beauty Blender to a pet who has turned it into a chew toy OR drop your favorite makeup brush in the toilet?   9. Be stuck for an entire week with too much blush on OR spend that entire week with too much bronzer on?   10. Never be able to shop instores every again, but be able to have the most dedicated service for superb online shopping at Sephora OR have a Sephora 1 mile within where you live and only be able to shop there and never have access to Sephora's site every again?   11. Get the entire Tom Ford lipstick collection for free only to discover all the tubes have melted down OR   get $200 to spend on whatever lipsticks you want in Sephora with no worries of melting happening?   12. Wear one of Dr. Jart's Rubber Masks (which have their rubber mask pieces colored according to their type) out in public on a date OR wear Glam Glow's Gravity Mud Mask (which is silver in color) out in public on a date?   13. Break your favorite bottle of perfume on the floor OR have to wear the entire bottle of your favorite perfume?   14. Apply your makeup for a week only with the hand that you do not predominately use OR have a different stranger a day for a week do your makeup for you?   15. Wear around an unblended contour/highlight look (as in the swipes, dots, dashes, and laid-down application of colors before you tackle and blend everything out) out for a week OR  wear around an undusted baked look (as in a super generous and heavy amount of powder is applied to regions of the face to set creams/liquids) out for a week?

SiJCP (Sephora Inside JCPenney) - share your pics, promos & pretties ❤️
    Welcome!    This thread is all about the SiJCP experience!  These stores are different than the stand-alone Sephora stores and like everything else, there are pros & cons.   Some of the pros: SiJCP has exclusive Sephora Favorites Sets ( which aren’t sold online ): Post a pic of any you may find out there in the wild GWP promos: sent out via email, snail mail or postcard offers in the store. There is usually no minimum purchase requirement but you will need the barcode.  Be a pal? Post any offers you come across here  Their own “Rewards”: the 100-pt’ers are usually different then stand-alone stores Some of the cons ( IMO ): Their own “Rewards”: which are hardly ever stocked The great mystery of the “ SiJCP Email Distribution List ” is still….you guessed it – a mystery! No one, not even store employees, know how to get on this email distribution list.  The investigation is still ongoing  Communication isn’t consistent  and each store seems to operate differently. BTW, if you had a good experience at the store, please complete the survey – this means a lot to the hard working SA’s.   Thanks everyone for your help

MOB & MOG Dresses.
I know this is a beauty community, but I could really use some fashion help. My mother and future mother in law are asking me what color they should wear to my wedding next summer. I'm not sure what to tell them. The colors of the wedding are black, white and blush. My bridesmaids will be wearing floor length, black dresses. Neither of them care to wear blush and I don't want them in black, because I want them to stand out  from the bridesmaids. I am open to all suggestions.

Victoria Secret Semi Annual sale in June / July
I always wait to buy any PINK products until the semi annual sale .I dont really like the brand VS that much but if its really cheap / affordable I might give in and buy some stuff during their semi annual  sale in the summer.   They usually always sell out of any products I might be interested in though.It also really bothers me that Victoria Secret is no longer selling swimwear anymore .I bought a really really good bikini from them that I really liked one year and I was going to buy another bikini this yr from them but they no longer are making them.They only sell them through the pink VS brand now and their bikinis this yr look really really bad so I wont be buying those.
