Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I guess I'm immune to it. Why spend 100 points on a super tiny bottle (not even .24oz!!) when I can get a full-sized bottle for $30? There's only a couple I'd ever go for.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Lotus many of us order just because the bottles are so cute. Some of my minis have horrid fragrance but the bottles are so beautiful I had to have them!

 

What a bonus there will be days with two offered, so more than 25 new minis! Smiley Happy

 

jaimielove how can you pick just one more? - what will power you have - i would order more product if i needed points for minis

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

if you only knew how hard that is for me! it would be fantastic haha.

 

luckily (or not lucky, depending on how you look at it lol) my bank account just can't handle that right now with christmas coming up! that **bleep** put in a hard spot, as we weren't really expecting to have to buy much for the kids this year (because disneyland would have been a major part of their christmas gift) but that's clearly out of the picture so it's been a bit of a scramble. i'm buying as much as i can get away with from sephora for gifts for others plus stuffing my own stocking to stock up on points so i can get what i can haha. and crossing my fingers that they do this again next year! i know i for one will certainly be hoarding my points until then just in case Smiley Very Happy 

 

so now i need to narrow it down... i want yellow diamond because i have a bright crystal and a crystal noir, so it would complete my set. i want downtown because i am in love with it. i love the anna sui. i want the see by chloe (though i can cross that off my list i think, since there is the .5 oz paintbrush bottle so almost a mini) and i really want to know what the 25th is, since it looks so much like chloe! but they've already had that one, and i already bought the mini plus lotion set for $15. what's a girl to do! 

 

ps: sephora, if you're listening... my birthday is in a week so if you could just go ahead and send me one of everything, that would be great. 

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

jamielove - you can probably get a yellow Versace in a TSB; there always seem to be plenty - the See by Chloe is nothing special IMO - it was sent to me with the Downtown and some of the other new fall fragrances by my PS - i would definitely grab the Anna Sui and/or the Downtown - the downtown is a lot like the Marni shape wise - the Anna Sui will probably be more difficult to get if you don't grab it on here; the rest are easy to get at the cosmetic counters - hope that helps

 

some of these are difficult enough to acquire, but then they have so many different versions of each like Jadore; 2 sizes, one has a glass ball at the top in each size, the other has a plastic ball on each size, then there is the all gold bottle - it is an adorable bottle, but tracking down all 5 took some doing allbeit fun - Dior does this with a number of their minis, but i do love tracking them down - having a PS has really helped as far as getting the new fragrance minis as that is the easiest time to snag them and i do not have to buy the full size bottles to get them

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

maybe i need to hire YOU as my personal mini shopper Smiley Wink 

 

that's exactly what i was thinking about the yellow diamond... it will likely show up in a traveling box some day Smiley Happy and is the ana sui coffret still available? will it be in the spring when we get double points for fragrance purchases? what to do, what to do...  at least i've got a couple of days to decide still, right? Smiley Wink 

 

i need to start going to the macy's and nordstrom's cosmetic counters and see what they have for minis! i rarely get out of the house and to the mall, and when i do steve is so ready to get in and get out lol. i really should start going out with my ladies and leaving the kids at home! 

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

What is TSB???? Oh and is PS Personal shopper?  I am sorry, my profession is or was chemical engineering and I just got my smell back from 15 years of nasal polyps some am new to perfume and beauty.  I've always worked in male dominated fields which is why I LOVE Sephora and these threads.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Just got Light Blue mini! It smells great but really tiny.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I got the Chloe lotion and it is stinky! I do not like this smell at all, what a waste of a promo!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

why why why did you have to post this!  i see three that i HAVE TO HAVE now!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

So I'm pretty convince BT is just a conspiracy to funnel my money to Sephora. Well played, Sephora. Well played. I put in an order for 2 hand cream sets for mom and mil for Christmas, and took advantage of both of today's promos. Looks like I'll be doing another order on the 18th. These mini bottles are so adorable! I'm sad I missed out on the Flora and Florabotanica. Not having free rouge shipping is kind of a bummer right now, but I'm no where close.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Call sephora and ask to be signed up for Flash. If they say no, politely hang up and dial again in an hour for another rep. So many girls have gotten Flash this way it's insane.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Wait, would this be free? Because that would be bananas.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

They send you the invite I believe so you still pay the $10, but for most they were just happy to get the invite!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Need recommendations similar to Gucci Envy from the mini promos Smiley Happy!?  I started a thread on this but it's buried and no answer yet Smiley Wink... so can anyone in here recommend something from the 25 Days fragrances promo, or any minis or sets for my best friend.

 

She wears Gucci Envy (I don't think there are minis of this from Sephora), but I'm wondering if there are any of the adorable promo minis she should try that might be similar?  Or does anyone know of any Envy sets, or a mini envy in one of the perfume sets?

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I don't know of any that smell similar, sorry Smiley Sad I did find a mini unboxed for $9 total, in box for $13 total, and a really cute boxed set that includes a mini for him & her for $22 total. They're harder to find in abundance because Envy is a discontinued scent. I did look up the scent on fragrantica and its notes look INCREDIBLY similar to Gucci's Envy Me... you might want to try that. Also check it out or ask on fragrantica, they're experts

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Is it worth it to get today's perfume????

Okay, my points are dwindling. I have as little over 500, and was planning to get today's fragrance, and then threw in Hugo Boss for my ex boyfriend, though I already got him that promo one....then I was down to 350 pts agghhh I have to rethink everything, I didn't go thru with the purchase.

Is it worth it to get today's Balenciaga Balenciaga Paris Eau de Parfum?  Right now I think I want 1) Anna Sui, 2) Gucci Guily,3) Narsisco for her and on the fence about 4) Dowtown, 5) Kenzo 6) Escada, ....7) Balenciaga Paris  what to do?????  Why did I spend 450 frivolous pts on Lancome and a 250 perfume....I have never smelled these since I don't leave the house due to disability and don't know which to get....help...please...I like the cute bottles, but it helps when something inside smells yummy.

Please help...

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I go by two things: How expensive the perfume is on Sephora, and how expensive the perfume is in the real world (since the markup on perfumes at Sephora and the like is INSANE). You can get most of these perfumes for about $30 an ounce on REPUTABLE fragrance sites, and for example, you can get a .5oz bottle of Downtown for $11 BIN/free shipping on eBay. Just look around eBay and see where the prices are since, even if you're afraid to buy on eBay, the LOW prices are pretty on par with those fragrance sites- just don't let a couple sellers trying to sell a 1.7oz bottle for $80 BIN make you overestimate the real going prices.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Thanks for the reply OhSailor!!!

I got ya sister.  I was upset for not getting Prada Candy Leau because I had so many samples, and I liked the scent, but ya, why spend points when you have the scent, well the cute bottles, I ended up getting the mini bottle elsewhere, and last night I got the D&G Desire on ebay, with the lotion and shower gel, I personally just like lotion to keep the scent on better, I spent $55, I could have gotten the same thing without the lotion for 32.99, but I wanted the lotion because I haven't seen it for sale anywhere since Desire is new.  Ya, after I wrote the post I went to Amazon, and was so surprised at the cost of the 0.5 fl oz of Downtown.  I have had a sinus infection for a couple of weeks, and just started medication, so currently I can't smell anything.  Ya, I also look at which items have rollerballs out, where you get more product for not too high of a price.  So I am with you, and am going to spend my pts on the nicest bottles that I can't find elsewhere on the sites you mentioned.

 

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

That's a good plan! And I'm so sorry for what you're going through- my fiance was robbed & beaten 2 years ago and still hasn't gotten his full sense of smell back Smiley Sad it was especially devastating for him because he LOVES colognes more than most guys do. I am so sorry, I hope it comes back in full form! beautytester also made a lot of sense with her post!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Agree with OhSailor. It also depends on whether or not I like it or want to buy it. My rule of thumb is that I will ONLY buy a perfume if I love the scent AND the bottle. So if I don't like the bottle but love the scent (CK downtown), or if I love the bottle but don't like the scent (Anna Sui) then I'm getting the mini. Cuz if I like both then I'm getting the full size at some point anyways, and if I don't like either then it's a waste of 100pts that would be better spent later on something better.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

This is D&G Light Blue I just got. I took a picture next to my regular lip balm for size comparison. Hope this help!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

So cute! I almost got it, but i've never smelled it before Smiley Sad

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Collecting minis for me is my love of the cute bottles, not the value of the amount of fragrance in a mini versus the cost of the full size bottle. If there is a fragrance I love and wear I naturally want the mini too. There are also many fragrances that I do not care for the scent, but I think the bottle is beautiful and would make a great addition to my collection.

Highlighted

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Agreed. And I also love minis. Smiley Happy

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I guess I'm just immune to this- I'm not spending 100 pts (100 dollars worth of points!) on a teeny tiny bottle no matter what- esp when I can find that same teeny tiny bottle on eBay for $9.
