Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

Hi BeautyTalkers! We love the great answers you always give on our Sephora Asks board, and we have a few more questions for you!  We'd love to get your feedback on the questions below. Leave your answers in this thread!

 

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

 

LORAC Couture Shine Liquid Lipstick in MUSE - this is my absolute favorite lip gloss.  It's the prettiest muted pink that looks so natural and works with everything. It's a no-brainer.

 

 2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

 

The Chanel range of products, the Glossimers in particular.  And actually, I more so wish that Sephora simply carried the entire collections (or at least more of it) of the top brands.  I realize that this is strategic, so that the other retailers have some competitive advantage, but it seems that more often that not, I have to go to Neimen's or Nordstrom to purchase certain (and often the most popular) colors in a range. 

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

 

Constantly.  I'm always in search of the perfect formula for me, and I've gone through many brands to find it.

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

 

Definitely Formula performance.  As much as I love fancy packaging and names, that's not what I'm putting on my face.

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. My Mac lipglass in Fold and Tuck 

2. The Bourjois line is only available in the Europe Sephora's Smiley Sad they have the best makeup for such an affordable price

3. I like to experiment as long as I've heard relatively good things about the brand/product in the past!

4. Formula! 

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

. 1. Cant leave home without eyeliner. I look weird without it. My fav is stila smudge pot or if im in a hurry tokidoki liquid pencil liner.

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?  Pure grape seed oil

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?  Every time i walk into sephora or any beauty store

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance.  Easy. Performance Performace performace!! But if the packaging is nice  and its glittery, i'm a sucker for it Smiley Sad

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. Philosophy Kiss Me

 

2. Donna Karen New York; Philosophy Hope in a Bottle

 

3. I love Sephora for experimentation--I have sensitive eyes and the ability to test my reaction in advance of purchase.  I experiment with things every weekend.

 

4. Formula performance

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

M.A.C Moisture Infusion mixed with Josie Moran Argan Oil. I like the dewy result!

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

I wish Sephora would carry La Fresh makeup remover wipes.

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

Ocassionally. Since I have sensitive skin, I have to thoroughly research brands before I take the plunge. I'm grateful that Sephora is a testing wonderland Smiley Happy

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

Formula performance

 

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?

For skincare, it's sunscreen. For cosmetics, it's definitely eyeliner!

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?

I use sunscreen and mascara from La Roche-Posay, and Chanel blush is probably my favorite.

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?

I seldom experiment with skincare because my current routine works well; I never want to deviate from it. With cosmetics, I love experimenting and do it often.

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance

Formula performance! (That said, I do tend to rely on certain brand names.)

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. I cannot leave home without sunscreen. Over the years, my choice in sunscreen has changed and I am currently using Murad's Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15.

2. Cle de Peau Concealer and more BB Creams from Asian brands

3. If a skincare product works for me, I usually stick with it, but if it's something like a mask or brightening treatment, I like to experiment to see which one fades my scars or brightens my skin better.

4. I would choose formula performance all the way.

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

1. What product can you not leave home without, ever?


     Any lip balm with SPF

    

 

2. What must-have beauty product does Sephora not currently carry?


     Don't think I've come across one yet. Sephora pretty much has everything I love

 

3. How much do you experiment with new beauty products / brands?


     Alot, primarily with makeup. Occasionally with skincare, but my skin is sensitive so I try to stick with what my skin likes

 

4. If forced to choose: Brand Name OR Formula performance


     Formula performance definitely. I could care less about brand names

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

Cult Nails nail polish! An amazing line with really innovative and new colors and combos! Clairvoyant (the color) needs to make a comeback!

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

Am I replying correctly? Smiley Happy

 

I can't leave home without lipgloss that contains flakies!

 

I really wish Sephora had more nail polish lines like Cult Nails!!!!

Also, more mascara samples! Not testers, actual samples for me to take home and try. I constantly see people using the testers in the store and it makes me not want to go near them! Every time I ask for samples though, they never have any! 

I try all of the new products the minute they hit stores!

Formulation is more important! 

 

Thanks for listening, Sephora!

Re: Weekend Focus Group: Sephora Asks

Um moderators you might want to check out the 14 posts before me. ALL of them are newcomers who are promoting a nail polish line and even posted the website of said polish. Hopefully you can remove these posts or do something about it... I didn't think that this was allowed!
