Hi everyone, I'm trying to put a reference list of all the sales and promos that happen in Sephora during the year. If you can take some time to read through and add in anything you remember, that would be very helpful! Thanks in advance! http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Sephora- sales-and-events/m-p/897409#M52282 <3 Sarah
Hello beautiful people, So this is the last place I expected to post but I need the help of some wonderfully creative people! I just graduated from college and have frantically begun my wedding planning. My wedding date is March 23, 2014, so I don't have much time, but the topic of registry has been brought up by both friends and family and it occurred to me that I'm stuck! My fiance is my high school sweetheart and we've been together for over 5 years. He is in the Air Force currently stationed overseas. After our wedding I'll be moving to live with him on base in England (RAF Lakenheath for any military spouses out there). What do you register for when you are in the military and are unable to bring much with you? Also, are there any gifts you received that you couldn't live without? Any suggestions would be fabulous! Thank you so much! Megan
1. Since it's becoming a harsh winter around where I live. I would like to cure my cracked, chapped, sometimes bleeding lips. Something for this winter only, or all year around. I have plenty of chapsticks..but I don't know which one is the "perfect" one. I'm getting sick of curing it, then the very next day it's like I've done nothing to it. 2. Is there a product out there to grow my eyebrows even faster? I would like to have full, beautiful eyebrows. After that I want to get it waxed cause I know I have extra hair around that needs to be taken care of. I can't do it right now due to the fact that they are still growing, and semi bald on one. I've plucked my eyebrows almost all my life and I'm fed up with it making one mistake after another , I can't do it nearly as good as a pro does. 3. Also I want my long lashes again, because in my past I did something that makes me regret what I've done, they are still growing, but really fragile. I would like a product that can continue making them grow and also make them stronger. That way I can start wearing mascara again....I miss wearing it.
5 years ago, if I went anywhere near my friends with makeup on, they would all gather around and ask which son-of-a-gun beat me up. They weren't even joking. That kind of turned me off from makeup for awhile (T_T). After constantly practicing with makeup while out of sight from any sign of life, I started wearing makeup publicly again this year. As a result of that decision, my friends have come to the realization that I have an unhealthy obsession with makeup, and spend far too much money on it that I should. At the same time though, they began to trust me with their faces, and come to me for reviews on most cosmetics related things. When we go out shopping together, and if we go to Sephora, I can pretty much point them out to any product they need and give them what most reviews say about it. Need your homecoming makeup done? I got you covered girl! Don't know what you're skin color is? No problem because I do! Are you naturally ugly? That's fine; beauty is buildable! ^the things Sephora does to you -_- I've been a BI for less than a year and I've already got almost 2 boxes filled with Sephora hauls. At one point in my life, I thought one eyeliner was all that was necessary in the world of makeup. Now I feel the need to have every shade of eyeliner out there. Welp, thanks Sephora, for turning me into a total makeup junkie. That's my story; did Sephora convert any of you?
Full disclosure: It is not snowing in San Francisco. It is, however, SUPER cold (BRRRR), so today's mani is my (relatively) close appromximation of snow flurries. And it was crazy easy to do with the Formula X Xplosive top coats. I used Wham over Orbit and White Matter . What do you think?
What are you rockin' on your tips this weekend? Show & Tell!
I need some help with styling my holiday dress. I have a pink dress with black lace on the sides, from H&M. I thought about a black pointed toe pumps, a black blazer, pearl bracelet and earrings and a black clutch. Do you think that will be ok? Any other tips on how to style this? Thanks ladies! Also, I need some hair and makeup recommendations!
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. - I forgot to mention that The Bay will be hosting Beauty Gala's this coming week. You have to buy a ticket but out of the 10$ 2 goes to charity and 8 towards your purchase. Some counters give free stuff when you buy the ticket from them. You get your make-up done too at that counter I'm going and very excited about it! EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON
I know there's a lot of great stories out there of people being nice and giving during the holiday season, even throughout the year. I just thought we could all share them in this thread. Kinda like a good news thread instead of what we see on TV. It can be something you've done, someone being nice to you or something you saw in the news. Whatever works The one I'm sharing is one from a Canadian airline called WestJet. I just saw it this morning. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean
What a sweet surprise when I logged into BT tonight...a little over 400 hearts and I'm a Hall of Famer! Thank you all so much for being so wonderful and amazing and making this community so meaningful! I've learned and laughed a lot in my short time being here . I'm blessed to be welcomed in a community with such a unique group of people . THANK YOU! And a big shout out to all of the mods as well! You are all awesome!
I LOVED THE WHOLE SHOW!! Even if Taylor Swift was in there. LOL. Look at them.. They are all so gorgeous and stunning and sexy and beautiful and rich!! lol. They are so perfect it makes me think... ARE THEY EVEN HUMAN??? And of course, my favorite girls: What do you girls think? Me? I think I should start going to the gym and go on a diet!!! LOL.
I think most people are pretty happy about getting mistaken about being younger. I'm not exactly mad about it, but I always wonder why. I'm sure this will pay off later in life but being 20 and getting mistaken for 13 is amusing. I went out to eat with my Dad onetime and this guy was cursing at a nearby table. The woman told him to be quiet because there were kids in here. I was the youngest person in there. When I asked her about it she said she thought i was 13 and I laughed. I would say this was only because I was with my Dad but some of my friends have even misplaced my age. They initially guess 16, I guess because I have a car they couldn't assume any younger. About the only time I've been mistaken as older is when I was 14 and a lifeguard hit on me. He was probably about 18 and I couldn't figure out why he was so interested in a kid. I told him my age and he ran away like Chris Hansen was going to slide down the water slide and arrest him. I'm not exactly short (5'7) but I do have a petite frame. I thought this was all quite funny until I realized I often wear dresses, high heels, and makeup. Then I began to wonder if I look like a kid trying hard to dress like an adult. Kind of like when you were little and you put on stuff from your Mom's closet. I'm not sure if I should still find it funny or be horrified.
So McDonalds decided to start serving poutine across Canada. I'm pretty sure it was available in the Quebec McDonalds but now it's gonna be across the country. This kinda annoys me even if I don't like McDonalds (probably because I had too much late night McDick's back in college).... I mean they are ruining a national dish!!! If people who never had poutine before decide to have it from McDonalds for the first time... pretty sure they won't like it... ah! marde de clown! My fellow Canucks what do you think? My American friends... never have poutine at McDonalds! THIS IS NOT POUTINE THIS IS POUTINE End of rant!
Haven't seen these in a while, so I thought I'd write some up. Hope there aren't any repeats from recent ones! 1. What is your favorite thing about winter? 2. What is the weirdest quirk you have, if any? 3. Imagine you’ve been invited by <insert chat show host’s name here) to be on his/her show. Who would it be, and what would you talk about/be promoting? 4. What’s one beauty product that is overhyped/just not worth it, in your opinion? 5. What’s one beauty product that you think is worth every last penny/can’t live without it? 6. What are your most trusted beauty brands (high end and/or drugstore)? 1. What is your favorite thing about winter? hot chocolate 2. What is the weirdest quirk you have, if any? I love fiction a little too much and constantly make references to fictional characters. People often don't follow. :-/ 3. Imagine you’ve been invited by <insert chat show host’s name here) to be on his/her show. Who would it be, and what would you talk about/be promoting? I'd love to be a published writer one day, so it would be amazing to be invited by Craig Ferguson. We'd talk about my bestseller and Doctor Who. (I should probably start churning out book ideas if I want to realize this dream, lol) 4. What’s one beauty product that is overhyped/just not worth it, in your opinion? Nars Orgasm blush. It's nice, but no more special than my other blushes 5. What’s one beauty product that you think is worth every last penny/can’t live without it? Philosophy Miracle Worker retinoid pads 6. What are your most trusted beauty brands (high end and/or drugstore)? I have complete faith in anything produced by Too Faced and Ole Henriksen!
What makeup is everyone wearing today? Today I am wearing: 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!
Did anyone else get sucked in to Ulta's cyber monday and still not even get a shipping notice? I never order from Ulta but they had some gifts I missed out on or didn't have at Sephora (the $10 Art of Shaving kit for my BIL, a $19 Bare Minerals kit for my SIL) and the free gift looked nice. I ordered just after midnight on sunday night/monday morning and it still says "order processing" and since it's been 5 days the pending charges aren't even on m CC anymore. I know other people are having the same issues because their Facebook page is blowing up and they sent an email out letting everyone know they are experiencing delays. They said it will still be here within 10 business days (which is really 2 weeks) but I am not confident my order will complete or have the free gift (if something is OOS it will mess up my christmas shopping because I thought I was done). I get it's shopping season, but in comparison, all my other holiday orders have been here for a few days. My Sephora CM order that I placed late on Monday got here Wednesday. My giftopia order was only 1 or 2 days behind, which wasn't bad at all. I'm on day 6 with Ulta. Anyone else having holiday shipping woes or get sucked into Ulta? I knew I was a Sephora girl before, but I can say with confidence now that Sephora > Ulta. Plus, Sephora's CS has always been good to me. Ulta doesn't seem to be handling this well. UPDATE: I received a shipping notice last night 12/9 for 2 of my items. It says the label was created so I'm not sure when I am getting them. At least I will be getting them. STILL waiting for 3 other items to ship/praying they aren't out of stock. If they are, I "loved" 3 back up Christmas gifts from Sephora. Hopefully I will know soon if I need to pull the trigger! 2ND UPDATE: Finally got a shipping notice when I woke up this morning 12/11. It *should* all be here Friday. I'm just glad I got the shipping notice. It wasn't about WHEN it would get here, it was about IF it would get here--especially since everything except the GWP was Christmas gifts for other people.
Whats your favorite ice cream flavors and toppings? I love ice cream a lot!!! There's a creamery in the dining hall here at school so I get ice cream 1-2x a week ( I work out a lot though). My favorites are: 1. Rainbow sherbet with rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips If rainbow sherbet isn't available, 2. Vanilla with M&Ms, Reese's pieces, rainbow sprinkles, caramel, and whipped cream
I aplogize if i dupliacted this post! So i finally got to sephora to return my foundation ( Kat Von D Lock It Foundation) and this is the reason I order online. I went in and I understand its the holidays and naked3 came out but why greet everyone that comes in that's older or has a husband and not me? Granted I know I look like a teenager but I'm 24 and I feel like when we go to sephora we should be treated like we are going to spend money and look. Anyway I found the Kat Von D section and looked around there was a couple of cast members with customers but there was one who wasn'I, I was trying to find the right color foundation myself and she just watch! The foundations that we're out to test were not label so this made it hard, so I finally just went over to her and said I want to exchange it but can't figured out what color I would be. She came over and found the right color for me in less than 2 minutes, but still why didn't she come over ?Plus I almost didn't get my VIB Rouge card because the girl kept saying I should have gotten it with my order which I explained that I got the the welcome kit and the welcome kit say to pickup your cards instore.
I feel a weird sense of accomplishment, and I don't care how crazy my boyfriend thinks I am for it (and he does after I gave a little speech in my living room thanking the lovely @scharrison for supporting me in the spending of the money haha) I just wish it would update faster on my account though, the excitement is killing me.
One of them even had four samples! I was really confused because the box on the left was so big and I got kind of excited because maybe delirious me sent me a surprise gift but.. it was just a normal package and they probably ran out of regular boxes because it didn't say sephora anywhere on it haha I know, I'm wasteful with packaging... I just couldnt make up my mind and made little orders also, the bite set looks so cute and wonderful! too bad rhubarb was broken so I have to go exchange it in store tomorrow
I am an absolute animal lover. Lately, more and more videos of animals being treated cruelly are surfacing, and watching them kills me. I'm the type of person that feels bad when a moth gets smashed on my windshield while I'm driving. I would love to become a vegan, but I have no idea where to start. It will also be difficult for me because my fiance is a chef, and he loves his steak (and every other type of meat), and I know he won't do this with me. I feel like everything I eat (besides fruit and vegetables) is made with animal products. I'm also concerned that it will be a lot more expensive to buy vegan food. Is anyone here a vegan? Can someone help me start off? Are there certain stores that sell more vegan food than others? Please help!
So who has tried the color IQ in stores & on-line? http://www.sephora.com/IQ/color/ I heard people going into multiple stores & getting a different reading each time. I just tried the on-line tool with a light neutral undertone shade & all my results were medium with pink or yellow undertones. I also don't understand why I only get a few results and then try another foundation and get different product results. Like if I plugged in a tinted moisturizer shade I wouldn't get any powder product results even though that's what I'm looking for. Maybe if we post our results, they can somehow fix/improve it. So please... Share your results.
Hi all! THIS IS NOT A SIGN-UP LIST, just gauging interest--for now ! I've only been a part of BT since October, so I'm sort of a "baby", but I've learned a LOT and loved every minute. After seeing carrie1975 and jaimelove say that they were planning on starting post-holidays traveling boxes in a thread about those very boxes, I became inspired. I've never been a part of a box, but I've done a lot of research and I think I've gathered a sufficient amount to say with confidence that it would be really fun to start one! Here's my idea: I would send it out on December 31st (a Tuesday, I've checked) and have it be the first Sephora Traveling Box of 2014! How does that sound? We could decide on where leftovers go (a charity, shelter, etc.) TOGETHER and have a short list so we can actually get to know each other a bit more. That's one of my main motivations for inquiring about interest in this box, because I would love to get to know you guys more! Such knowledgeable, beautiful people here on BT Let me know! <3
Ladies, I hope none of you are farding while driving. It's dangerous and potentially deadly. My boyfriend caught me farding today a nd I was so embarrassed. If you haven't caught on yet..... Fard 1: paint (the face) with cosmetics 2:archaic : to gloss over
Congrats to my dear friend Poshified who has surpassed 3,000 hearts! You came onto Beauty Talk with a BANG with your No Buy July Thread (which turned into an enabler thread!!) and you have been here ever since with your Top Tuesday Thread that we all love!!! I am so glad that we became friends and makeup soul sisters!!! Here is to many more hearts for you and I love seeing you around Beauty Talk all the time and I hope you never leave!!! Many more highlighters for you! Including the Guerlain Cruel Gardenia. And of course many vintage Guerlain meteorites (ie "magic balls") What's a party without some Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders? It is definitely not a party without some YSL blushes and lippies as well!!! And it is definitely NOT a heart party without some hearts and Chanel!!! (And of course some humor!!!) We love you Poshified and I hope you have a GREAT heart party!!!
Hello my beautiful people! As the holiday approaches, many beauty companies are offering amazing Gift with Purchases. What are you favorite/best Gift with Purchases from Sephora and not from Sephora? My favorite GWP from Sephora has been the Classic ItKit offered last year around the holidays: My favorite GWP is a tie between Dior and Chanel (both from earlier this year): Chanel GWP: Perfume vial, mini mascara, mini makeup remover, skincare, and a baby Les Beiges. I got this from Macy's. Dior GWP: Perfume vial, mini lip gloss, mini lash maximizer, a serum, a mini quint eyeshadow, along with a cute patent black Dior clutch. I got this from Nordstrom. What are YOUR favorite GWPs from Sephora and elsewhere??
I placed a few orders last week for some products I was really excited about, plus the cute mini perfume perks. Three orders were supposed to arrive Tuesday. I checked the tracking, and it said they were all delivered. They were not on my porch. My porch is enclosed, and packages can easily hide from thieves. As a matter of fact, there are several packages on my porch now that have been there for days for other people in my building. One order was supposed to arrive yesterday and it was marked as "delivered", but yet again, not there. I called Sephora and some of my items I ordered were out of stock - Naked 3 and the sale UD Black Market pencil set - not to mention the mini perfume perks. I was refunded and Sephora made it hassle-free, but I'm left with a panic about ordering again. What happened to my stuff? I absolutely do not want to redirect to the UPS facility, as the nearest is rather far. I would never be home to sign for any delivery either. I guess I wanted to vent/ask for advice. I don't feel comfortable even ordering because I don't want my orders to go missing. This is a terrible feeling.
I can't remember which thread it was on, but one of y'all mentioned Nordstrom's Rack having makeup and beauty products. And, dang, sure enough mine did!! How'd I NOT know this? Well... this is what just one shelf looked like, and there were about 5 like this: And, why yes that DOES day UD eyeliner for under $4... And I got ALL these polishes!! Ack!
