Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

Just received my Sephoria package (I ordered the #2 set). Everything was packaged in such a cute way, I can’t wait for the event to see what else Sephora has in store!

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

@LCResz Interesting, for some reason I had guessed that the Rare Beauty item would be one of their lip products so I'm surprised to see that it's an eyeliner. This choice is more universal though, so I see where they're coming from. Thanks for sharing the contents!

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

@LCResz I agree! I thought the packaging was cute. I love that the “door handle” was the wristlet. I’m looking forward to Sept. 18th!

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

Check your emails.  I just got a tracking number for my kit.

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

The Sephora team should consider making more experience kits available for this event! It’s pretty ridiculous how the kits sold out within a couple of hours (kit #2) and then the following day (kit #1). You would think an event like this would consider being accessible to more people to give everyone the best experience possible. So far I’m really disappointed and it seems as though Sephora doesn’t care at all. I didnt even know this event was happening until Thursday and that was by chance and by then one of the kits was already sold out. 

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

I registered and have the email confirmation but I think I may have missed a check mark but I’m not sure. I didn’t know about the experience kits or even about this thread until some kind ambassador just posted this link to the virtual events on the community thread. How do you access the kits ? Are they Ava on the website? The app? Where? What? When? How? Help??

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

Hi @sallyjii,

 

Regretfully, the SEPHORiA Experience Kits are now sold out. For more information regarding these kits, please visit the SEPHORiA homepage.

 

Always.
Danee

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs [UPDATED 8/11]

Thank you so much. I wish I had known about it. It was just so exciting and was so many great products. But usually during live shopping experiences vendors offer awesome deals as well. I’m excited about joining the live events. So happy that the ambassador posted the thread for us newbies!🥰🥰

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs

Just echoing how disappointed I am that Canadians can't attend and furthermore what a difficulty it was to find this information. Thank goodness @fatimamummy posted about this thread elsewhere otherwise I would have been up for hours trying to find the registration. 

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs

@SephoraBIC do you have a launch time? PST/EST? Thank you! 

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs

@SephoraBIC I agree with @fatimamummy . But why can’t Canadians join when we have been able to sit in on Sephora U.S. virtual events and vice versa? Isn’t the benefit of a virtual event that it’s without borders? Just feeling a bit disappointed…

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs

Oh that means we were excited for nothing? Even Canadians can’t have access to the event?

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs

@fatimamummy @haleyvvvv @Guessgal 

 

I'm so sorry this virtual SEPHORiA is open to US residents only! I will be sure to pass along your feedback so that future virtual events can be considered for our Canadian clients.

Re: SEPHORiA: Virtual House of Beauty 2021 FAQs

Thank you @DaneeBT
