GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

Let me just say how absolutely disappointed I am by this event! This is the description as per the Sephora Website:

From a sun-kissed glow to an all-over tan, discover how to create a beautiful bronzed look with Too Faced. Learn application tips, and take home a FREE GIFT.

Lets begin with the FREE GIFT advertised. I get there and they tell me that I get the free gift only if I buy something that they apply on my face. Sephora that is not a free gift which would've been fine had the second part of this disappointment not happened. 

Secondly I am going to implore Sephora to please hire individuals who actually know how to apply makeup if they are going to do on customers' faces. The SA that assisted me threw things on my face and made me look like BOO BOO the Clown by the time she was done. I ran out of the store as quickly as I could without purchasing anything at all. The whole point of events like this is to draw us in to possibly buying an item well this experience made me do just the opposite. Such a terrible experience! Ladies please let me know if you have experienced anything like this with SAs who don't know what they are doing and just pour makeup allllll over faces or if I am just going to the wrong Sephoras!

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

I've never let anyone touch my face. Partly because of the dirty hands and dirty brushes and party because I don't want to be pressured into buying something/interrogated about my life. Plus, I genuienley enjoy playing with testers/finding things on my own. And, I spray things with alcohol and use clean testers before I put anything on my face. I spend a lot of time/money on skincare/washing my hands/cleaning my brushes and none of all that will matter when my nice clear skin breaks out from a brush that has been used on 100's of people before its been used on me.

well of course, it depends who you use. I've had some great experiences with some while other experiences were complete disasters (see post below)

If you know of anyone good or if someone recommends, you can always request them

@Daniela1387 I'm so sorry to hear that Smiley Sad Please let me know what location you were at so I can at least forward your feedback to the store management.

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

I feel like I have to add this....Sephora is a big store, that has many locations, and needs a LOT of staff so it would be impossible for them to only hire makeup artists/people who know what they are doing/etc and still meet their staff requirements. Plus, their focus is more on sales and not really makeup application/technique.

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

I think that was wonderfully said.

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

I agree however when Sephora has events that advertise coming in to the store to learn application and tips of bronzer/blush/eye makeup etc i would at least hope that in those instances the store takes time to train their employees to actually be able to do it. That was my experience I went into the store after RSVPing for the event expecting to learn how to apply bronzer and was made to look horrible. The whole point of having events like the one I went to is to sell a product, this seems counterproductive if the customers run out of the store because of how the product was applied. But lesson learned no more of these events for me lol.

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

Don't let it completely discourage you. Some times Sephora has events where professional makeup artist come in a do some makeup apps. I went to one where MUFE Makeup Artist showed how to properly apply concealer and a smokey eye. And they did a wonderful job. So look for events like that.

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

What you could also do, is call the store in advance and ask when a makeup artist will be visiting or working there, get a name and try to be there when they are there. Other than that, places like MAC or higher end stores like Saks/Neiman Marcos should have a makeup artist on at least *one* of the makeup counters.

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

@Daniela1387- I absolutely agree with you. If a person is going to promote a product they should at least know how to use it!

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

Thank you! That's all I'm trying to say. What really sucks is that I never learned how to apply bronzer =( and I reallyyyy wanted to learn. I know it isnt the easiest technique and just wished I would've walked away knowing a little more about it. 

Re: GSP JCPENNEY Sephora Too Faced Bronze Ambition Event Disappointment!!!!

I learned how to properly apply my makeup through youtube---specifically Tanya Burr and Pixiwoo. I love youtube Smiley Very Happy
