Has anyone been sent defective items by Sephora?

I'm just curious if anyone has been sent defective items by Sephora. I received a blush without its backing glued on. The  Bobbi Brown blush was stuck to the mirror when I opened it. This has been my first time with a defective item from Sephora. I've made a lot of orders before and had never had a problem. I went to my nearby Sephora and they gave me a refund. They didnt have it in stock so oh well. I'll just order it tonight. 

 

Anyway, I'm just curious if f this has happened to anyone else?

I mean makeup is very hard to transport, i ordered Purity the regular one not the gel and i know its milky naturally but it was almost watered down, i returned it right away and i got store credit (i lost my reciept) no questions asked, sephora has one of the best if not the best return policy of any retail store.

Re: Has anyone been sent defective items by Sephora?

The only time I received something in less than perfect condition was the time I ordered the Urban Decay De-slick spray and it was leaking a little bit.  But I just exchanged it at the store with no problems.  I have placed many, many online orders with Sephora and I'm always very happy with their excellent packing and pristine condition of the items.  Excellent packing and shipping is really becoming a rarity nowadays, so it's one of the main reasons I shop Sephora online exclusively for my beauty needs.

I mean if you order a brand new book from Amazon, you'll be lucky if you actually receive a book in new condition.  One time I had to return a book 3 times before a got one that was in good condition.  The poor quality of their books is usually due to their horrible shipping methods (what do you think is going to happen if you ship a large paperback in an envelope?)  So I definitely don't take Sephora's excellent shipping methods and durable boxes for granted!  Even my cats can attest to the quality and longevity of Sephora boxes Smiley Wink  And the paper, they love that.

I just got a liquid-based eyeshadow that was completely, completely separated.  There was this greenish liquid and then all the sparkle and color clumped up at the bottom.  I'm going to have to return it as I cannot get it to mix back up.  And earlier I got a lipgloss that was completely separated and I had to return too.  I think I need to stop shopping in the sale section, but I'd think they'd look the product over before they ship it out.  I can't imagine this is happening in the 2 days it takes to get here with the weather in the 50s.

Re: Has anyone been sent defective items by Sephora?

I don't think I have ever had such bad luck with Sephora like this.
I am sorry for those that have.

I have however had issues with many items at drug stores,
where I didn't realize someone opened the item and used it.
omg ew, meaning they took off the seal to use it! Then put it back.
Now I check the seals. Smiley Tongue

 

Re: Has anyone been sent defective items by Sephora?

I have to exchange my naked palette. It came with 3 of the pans in the palette sticking halfway out crooked. Two of the pans had scratch marks in them. I'm not sure if it is a manufacturer defect or it was used but I want a new one without these issues.

They sent me 2 broken MJ eyeliners, and 1 leaking boscia tsubaki oil. I called CS and they sent me replacements right away.

Re: Has anyone been sent defective items by Sephora?

So mad. I was sent another damaged product today. I bought  a Laura Mercier blush that arrived cracked. I opened the box and saw powder and hoped the powder was all right but the entire side of the powder was cracked and pinch of the corner was missing. So annoyed. Another return. I hate going to the mall this time of year but I prefer to get my stuff processed as soon as possible.

Hmm, back when the current website was new and in beta version, some of were able to try it out and I got a free shipping code so I placed a $3 order. It came in bubble wrap envelope. The item was a metal atomizer so it was ok, but the container and the samples were crushed! Ever since then, everything I've received has been in big boxes with miles of butcher paper even if it's pinky sized item, and my items were never damaged after that. =X

Re: Has anyone been sent defective items by Sephora?

I bought the BCA Clarisonic and it was defective. CS was super awesome and sent me a replacement... which was also defective. Returned them both and got a perfectly functional Mia 2. Wasn't going to risk it again, but that's my issue with Clarisonic, not Sephora.
