What you just said doesn't make sense....If you used 200 points to pay for the $15 item, then Yes actually you should be getting all 200 points back if you return it since they take the points in 100 increments. Basically you would be losing $5 in points otherwise just for returning an item

If it hasn't been mentioned yet, Stila is on Hautelook today.  They have the full-size All Over Liquid Shimmer in #3 for $10.  I got this there on the same deal before.  It's supposed to be gold, but to me it seems like a light peaches-and-cream type color.  Really beautiful.

We are box twins for .5090! Mine is supposed to be arriving 12/12, but the tracking hasn't updated since Edgewood NY. Hoping for no foil packets. I have been subbed since March and I usually get a decent in-between box. I am also getting the December myglam/ipsy. BB has not been impressing me lately and this could be a make it or break it month =/

I don't get NBTT so it's not that, either.

I also get LWF and I am thinking that's what it is. The shipment originated out of Oakland, CA and that's where LWF normally comes from. Has anyone seen any spoilers for Decembers box yet?

If you mean spoilers on LWF -- they don't do them. Sometimes you can kinda guess what may be in the boxes by seeing what is in the 'store,' or seeing if anyone did an unboxing video on YouTube.

 

As for BB - I think usually around the 10th or so people have been able to get spoilers.  

I will say though, by getting my box early this  month - it was nice to have a surprise.

I was referring to the original post, which stated that only a partial point refund was given.

Also, if I made a $15 purchase, then Birchbox would take 200 points....they only accept increments of 100. So if it was returned for any reason, I really think the refund should be what was paid - 200 points.

I think she's assuming that people aren't going to just "waste" 50 points. In the case that someone does, yeah, that sucks, but why do that?

slightly off topic, but my latest order from bb got delivered today (including four boxes of chocopods...) i was surprised bc on the website it still says the order is processing, but all the better for me!

 

also i ordered a beauty blender -  could someone tell me how well it works with pressed powder foundation?

Ive never used it on pressed powder. I personally wouldnt use it on pressed powder, just on liquid. Interesting though. Let me know how it works out.

I've never used the beauty blender for pressed powder and the instructions that beauty blender puts out is for liquid foundation only. It might pick up more powder than a powder puff so I'm imagining it would cake on the powder instead of giving you the finish that the beauty blender is known to give.

I loved the sample I got in my bb but it was a rose-pink color- the color on hautelook looks super pale...does it still blend into cheeks nicely? (That's where I mainly use it...)

i have been on the hunt for those chuao chocolate bars, & i keep getting disappointed. someone on here said that they found them at whole foods, so I went to mine but they didn't have them :( then someone else said that they found them in target and my target didn't have them either :( i know i could order them from BB, but someone got one that was near expired, so i don't want to risk that... i think that this is a sign that i should be eating healthier and not eating potato chip chocolate LOL.

 

anyways does anyone know anywhere else that i could find the delicious chuao chocolate bars? (:

If you go on the Chuao website you can put in your zipcode and it has places that sell Chuao.  However, when I went to the target near me that had them, they only had one flavor, firecracker.  THat one's my favorite but I was hoping to pick up a few more kinds.

I can't say about pressed powder, but I've used it with a loose finishing powder and it works fine. In fact, it works better than anything else I've ever tried for applying loose powder.

 

I just wet it and squeeze out all the excess, then pat it on just like with a liquid foundation.
