I bought my Bare Minerals foundation and grabbed some Tokidoki brushes on sale and 3 free samples... It's so easy to spend at Sephora! I just wish they'd had Pacifica Island Vanilla spray. The rollerball doesn't work especially well.

I stopped by Sephora today after receiving that email for the clutch. I love it! I wasn't expecting there to be so many samples, and they're all a great size.

Oh, thank you for posting a picture! Now I can drool properly, until mine arrives. I'm especially excited about the L'Occtaine, because I love that brand, and the mascara, because it's a goal of mine to only use free mascaras for the rest of my life. lol

I had to jump in on this one - as if I need more samples.

 

But I've wanted to try the Murad peel for awhile as I use a lot of that line of facial care products.  The Porefessional and Smashbox primers are always great.  Love anything Algenist and that's a deluxe sample for sure.  Never used a L'Occtaine product but curious.  

 

And I'm hoping the clutch is decent enough and can be my purse make-up bag.  I have a cute little clutch in there now but it's a little big (and I'd like to have it empty for when I want a small clutch!).

same couldnt resist so much for my no buy!  Mine had a few different things.  instead of the porefessional it has the CHA CHA Ching  my smashbox primer is the plain one ( which is fine by me) and the Murad I got the day moisturizer..    The clutch is a nice size for a makeup bag ( in my opinion!)

post #7 of 42

I ordered a fresh tube of Dior's Maximizer lash plumping serum and Illamasqua's blush in Hussy, the sample clutch, 3 samples, and a deluxe mascara using my points. I know I should save them but I've cut back on so many purchases I didn't care.

Thanks for posting the picture! It'll be a week before mine comes in the mail.

 

Did anyone else receive substitutions? I'm hoping that I won't get any unwanted surprises.

I know some PORE fessional's were subbed by benetints. I got a postcard about this two weeks ago from the store, I totally forgot about it until the e-mail was sent to me. It's Double Points for VIBs next week and free shipping online w/ no minimum the week after. The free shipping promo code is VIBSHIP :)

And here I was feeling privileged, for getting the deal. I didn't get a post card. :( Thank you for telling us about double points next week. Do we need a special code for that?

Nope! The back of the postcard said the double points will be added in your account by the last day of the promotion. You just need to be a VIB and it automatically adds it?

I didn't get the postcard either. Just to be sure, it is double points from Aug 19-25 and free shipping Aug 26-Sept 1?

Double Points is soo tempting. I'm trying to keep my VIB status by doing all my christmas shopping now, so that will definitely make it easier!

THANK YOU for posting this! I was looking everywhere to see if someone did a haul video or review.

post #15 of 42

I've been trying to put a cart through all evening on Sephora.com but their credit card processor seems to be down? It wouldn't take either of my cards, nor my husbands. Is anyone else having difficulties?

 

I even went to the mall this aft to pick up the clutch but the Sephora was closed due to electrical problems. Someone somewhere doesn't want me to get my clutch haha, it's just not working out today lol

I need to stay away. I was qualified VIB through December 2013 by late February this year eusa_whistle.gif....  And I never got my postcard either, I found out when I went to return something two weeks ago. Shame on Sephora. I also got the email about the clutch about 4 hours after I placed my order.

post #17 of 42

I placed my order as soon as I got the email. Not like I need more samples or anything, but I just couldn't resist! :) I ordered the Lancome Black Carat mascara and the Lorac Pro Palette. I think the Lorac palette might become my new Naked palette. The colors swatched are beautiful! I can't want to get it and start experimenting.

I got the clutch yesterday, I'm excited for all of the samples! I was surprised at how big some were, like the Algenist. They're always giving out samples though. I just renewed VIB too, so I have 10% off, and with the double points... They really want me to spend all of my money! Haha, so tempting.

post #21 of 42
I'm so excited to recieve mine. It should be here within the next hour. I especially can't wait to try the Algenist sample.

I got it! I got all of the listed contents, no substitutions. And I love the Tokidoki brushes I ordered, especially the blush brush. The only thing is, they didn't send me my three free samples. I don't think I'll complain to Sephora about it, since they gave me the clutch set, but I am a little disappointed, because one of the samples I was expecting was an Escada perfume that I really wanted to try.

The same thing  happened to me. I only recieved one of my three wanted samples. And one of the samples I already own too many of. Oh well, I'll give it to someone else.

 

Did they replace them with something else or not send them all? They usually replace them.

post #25 of 42

Yeah, I only got 1/3 requested samples but they replaced the other 2.  (So, I got 3 samples - just not the ones I was hoping for per say.)

They didn't send me any free samples at all, other than the clutch with the clutch items. I checked in the bag, and shook out the tissue paper, carefully, to make sure. I hope that doesn't become a pattern with them, because the samples are half the reason I ever shop at Sephora online. I have a store that I can buy from, locally.

I had that happen once, too - but not this time.  It sucked.

 

The samples + the ability to use eBates for some percentage back is why I shop online.  

 

Trufhfully - I'd rather go to the store, but I rarely get any samples from them unless I beg.  And I don't know why, but I like getting cool packets of new shizz - usually they'll just offer to make me something.  That's cool when I know what I want, but on average shopping events I want a packet or two darnnit!  It makes me happy.  So Sephora.com it is!

post #28 of 42

I placed an order with this code online tonight and it worked, however I am not a VIB. I wonder if I will still get the clutch or what?

post #29 of 42

I got the same bag as the one posted in the pic. I'm excited to try everything! I already know I like some of the things (porefessional, smashbox), but everything else is new and big! The only thing I'm not crazy about it the perfume, but that's because I don't care for the smell, the size is pretty generous though (1.7ml I think? It's bigger than a regular vial and has a spray top). I tried the Murad peel tonight and my skin looks pretty nice, plus it didn't burn as much as I thought it would. I'm super glad to have received a big sample of this since my skin is sensitive.

The Algenist is really nice! It's super thick, but doesn't feel heavy. I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it at first because I don't need a moisturizer with anti aging properties, but it feels soooo nice.

I tried it last night after my using my regular acne items. I love how thick it felt but how unheavy it was. I'm young as well so I don't need the anti aging properties. You need so little I'm sure the sample will last a long time.
