Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

So after not coming on here all day I check the samples and see the Yves Saint Laurent lip stains back up, an escada perfume, and a makeup forever mascara sample. Plus the formula x nail polishes are up again. So yes I fell off the wagon and placed an order for some nail polish...I need to block myself from coming on this site! Lol.

 

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

I'm surprised that the YSL gloss sample is still not OOS. It's been popping up since last week! Smiley Happy

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

It's great that the Formula X line is back. I'm looking forward to seeing the polishes in person once they are in my local store. But the prices have definitely increased. The original X line is still in my store, but it disappeared from the website a couple of months ago. I bought one of those this past summer and the non-glitter colors were $9.50. The new Formula X (new shaped bottle too) in the same color line (Classics) is now $10.50. Same thing with the X top coat. What gives?

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Sephora has been doing a lot of changes lately, some not for the better. Maybe the bottle costs more to redesign, lol.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Not only are they 10.50 but the bottles are .4 oz.  That makes them $1.50 more for 20% less polish than OPI.  I'll definitely have to try it before I buy it to see if it merits that kind of pricing.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

They look nice but the only thing I want right now is only 6 bucks so I'm not risking getting my account flagged for ordering just that and the X perk to try.  Oh well, this is the culture they created.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

I ordered the base coat and wanted to try the perk sized one but that came out after I placed my order so I guess Ill just miss out on it. Not only that but I have to censor myself and watch what I say on BT now. Craziness.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

oh no.... is that a thing now too? I guess I can live with over censoring... as long as I'm not forced to act like everything in the world is a bright shade of preppy pink and all happy.. only happy.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Yup, personally experienced it. I guess that week there was too much hysteria on BT. But I'm over it. 

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

I saw the lip stain, looks really nice. The perfume point perks are back too. hmmm.......here I go shopping Smiley Happy.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

I am glad some of you got the YSL gloss.. By the time I got on there it was gone Smiley Sad

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

The ysl glossy stain sample is back on. I tried them all. I like them a lot. You should try to snag one. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Smiley Sad I missed it again lol!

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

The samples have pretty much been the same for a few days Smiley Sad They were awesome for mere minutes. As soon as I went to check out with the MUFE mascara and YSL stain, the went out of stock. Really? In like 2 minutes. Sitting on G, waiting on O. Shopping cart ready for decent samples Smiley Sad

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Im confused.. what do you ladies mean about censoring yourselves and getting your accounts flagged? Is there some new change I'm unaware of? That doesn't sound good at all!

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Yes, I'd like to know this, too. It seems that shopping the Sephora website is fraught with insiders' tips that I wouldn't have thought necessary! All this stuff about samples appearing and suddenly disappearing... and what is flagging?

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

For the samples I just checked the samples a week ago and noticed the lip stains were back up, no insider tricks there Smiley Happy As for the flagging some rouge and members with flash shipping were getting there orders cancelled without notice due to their account being flagged. The censoring is once these topics come up the mods shut down the thread or move them to a board that isn't easily viewable by the public.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Thanks, misscg. I still don't understand what flagging is. Smiley Happy

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

most of us don't know what it is because sephora is acting like it doesn't happen or won't explain to us what exactly causes an account to get flagged. but in general flagging is like a reputation... you do something and they dont like it so they basically plaster this huge warning sign on your account so when you order stuff, call or try to return they will treat you like youre doing something wrong only they don;t ever tell you clearly what it is to not do so you can avoid it. in this case, much like the vib rouge perks... they are not really telling us how we can get flagged but it appears that placing too many low priced orders is one of the ways. another way is by returning too many orders.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

Oh, that is weird! Thanks. I guess I'll think twice before placing a small mail order. So much for enjoying the free-shipping perk without worry.

Re: Nice samples and Formula X is back up :)

it seems like all the rouge perks are bittersweet Smiley Sad
