Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So glad this is helping you all! I still can't click on the brands link above, it's like it is a placeholder for a future way to get to the brands list, so I'm really glad I stumbled across this url.


@mella900 I found it by accident, I was searching google to see if I could find out where tarte's March 15 releases will show up, and the search results took me to a broken link for Tarte's product page on Sephora, which luckily has an intact redirect to the brands list!


I haven't been getting the errors on product links so far today but I see other people are so it's probably a fluke and I sure hope they fix the site soon.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow props!! How did you even find it!?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thank you @gingerleigh! It's been driving me crazy not being able to see them all lol. The only one I've seen other than this is:

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Omg!!  thanks!  @gingerleigh



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

worked for me just now!!!!!! thanks! (and your account is safe, it just went to the brand list). 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

whew hoo 🙂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Why did Sephora get rid of its "brands" list?There's now a "brands" tab but it only lists a few "featured" brands and "new"brands. There's no list of all the brands any more.  For why Sephora?  Who Ok'd that change?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hope the new site is a "work in progress", the functionality of the site before was nice. I'm all for updating some graphics and the layout, but leaving out giant features seems counter-productive, especially if folks aren't aware of the variety Sephora has to offer and they can't even see a full list of brands. 😞

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

The brands feature was the one feature I used the most. This is highly irritating 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh good, I thought it was just me! I always use that list and now (since the search function hasn't been working for me) I have to come up with creative ways to get to the products I want.


I just remembered, though, I swear that on the first day of the website change there was a Brands A-Z (or something like that) that you could click on. I mean, I got an error message when I clicked on it, but it was there.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's ridiculous! I used that feature nearly every time I shopped. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm not liking this new site. 😤

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

The whole site is driving me nuts! I can't log into BT half the time. Errors galore...Nothing works in Chrome. It half works in Safari. I don't get how they could roll out such a glitchy interface! 


Ditto about the brands list! That's the most important list of the whole site...for any site that carries more than one brand!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

To get rid of one of the most useful things for navigating the site ( at least to me )... What? Why? Who? Why?! I am completely confused... And, majorly bleeped off!




Such a great feature it was... Le sigh... RIP, poor brands tab!


Who thought that was a good idea, Sephora?! Just bring it back! Or, am I missing something here...? Is the list hidden somewhere else and I can't find it cuz the site is a mess?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

They need to bring it back, there were so many things I found from other brands. 


I try to venture off into brands i'm not familiar with and the brands list was how I did it.  Please Sephora bring it back 😞 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Agree!!! That "Brands" tab was my most used link off the homepage. I almost always search by brand instead of by product. Not a big deal of course, since I can just search for the brand using the search box, but annoying since I'm already in the habit of clicking my way to it. Can't teach an old dog new tricks and all that, I guess.


Is there nowhere to see a complete brand list now? I used that page less, but it does come in handy every once in awhile. Let me know if anyone finds that somewhere!



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I used that feature a lot.  Sigh.  I can't tell if I hate the new layout because I'm résistent to change or if it's actually bad.  It'll be a week or so before i'm sure. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

K, I know it's Feb already.. but this is still buggin' me.


We always share xmas with some friends of ours.. and the last year has been difficult financially for them. They directly asked us to limit gifts to $20 specifically so that they didn't feel awkward in keeping finances in check over the holidays. We respected that, and did so. No fudging, no playing around, just followed their wishes and kept the gifts very small but thoughtful.


Then xmas comes, and they spend over $200 on us! I know it was that much because one of the gifts was a $100 gift card to a restaurant. Blatant. 


I don't know the word for what I'm feeling.. but it bugs me. It bugs me because.. I don't even know! It's not a 'contest win/lose' issue, just kinda of that they 'hobbled' us to a limit, imposed their will upon us.. and then did not adhere to the agreed upon terms! It just.. makes me not trust them?


I'm crazy in the head.


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Insomniacmuffin, I'd be pretty baffled by this, too.

Their insistence that you limit your gifts to $20 is understandable considering what they're going through but its bogus the way they went against their own request.

Its hard to be peeved at a gift but its the principle of the request.

I'd like to think that they were unexpectedly gifted the gift card and wanted give you guys something extra to show that they're doing okay. Who knows.


Hopefully they appreciated that you followed their wishes.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Insomniacmuffin  I would feel really awkward about that too, not to mention somewhat annoyed.  I don't think you're crazy in the head at all.  


On the same vein, but slightly different:  I outright refuse to exchange gifts with my in-laws.  I always shop early, and they know that, and one year my MiL called me up in the middle of December to tell me that my SiLs decided that everyone would just pick a name of a sibling (and their attached family) and that's who the gift giver would give gifts to, and that they'd already drawn a name for me and my husband.


 And I was like, 'Actually I've already bought gifts for people.  They're wrapped and ready to be delivered', and my MiL told me to 'just take them back'.  So I just noped really hard right there and then and told them that no one would be getting anything from us and that we wouldn't be participating in their drawing.


That was over ten years ago, and I'm still a little sour over that, even though I've tried to put it behind me.  I just don't do well with people telling me what to do and deciding for me without my input.  Gifts should be something you want to give someone, not something you're forced or coerced into doing.  Having someone force a limit, then not sticking to it themselves would probably humiliate me to no end, to be completely honest.


The older I get, the more awkward December gets for me because of all the gift giving rituals and the expectations that come from mutual gift giving, or if someone gives you a gift then they feel obligated to give you back something or vice versa.


TLDR: You're not crazy.  I'd be annoyed too.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is even more bogus, @ghrelin

I would be offended by this, too. Its so nice when people put such thought into their presents and to ask you to return these gifts feels so disrespectful.

Not sure why they couldn't just concede and be thankful that you thought enough of them to buy their gifts in advanced. 

Hopefully the hubby understands.

I know I do.
