Ugg.  Why do I always want the mystery set?


Did you read the reviews?  I was eyeing it for quite some time but a lot of the reviews say the makeup included is old some of them even say there is mold on some items...I would stay away!

Eww, I had missed the mold one.  I mostly saw people griping over not getting colors they liked or not liking the products when I have tried them before and liked them.  That's different.  Still, Sephora is good about returns, but then I'd ultimately lose my gift card value.  Based on the fact that I feel like my Glossybox lip pencil that they sent me was old (it just had that old oil smell to it and didn't work very well), I am now skeptical of them trying to pass off older products in this box.  I mean, it makes sense from their point of view unless it gets to the point of unsanitary which I suppose it might have in a few cases.

 

*although*  I did look at some posts on the topic with pictures and it really looks to me like it's possibly the components separating or condensation, but the lipgloss packaging is from the discontinued ones, so I don't doubt these are older products.

 

More lip tars it is, then, presuming I like the one I ordered.  :)

 

What else is everyone picking up?  I keep scanning the sale section daily.

I got the Illamasqua set and love it!  Nothing looked old to me and I got great colors.  I had been wanting that nail polish for awhile, so it was a no brainer.  Even if you don't like something, you can trade it on here. 

post #64 of 171

I'm still waiting for my reward card. I contacted Sephora and was told that I should have received it by yesterday. I hope they'll send me one before the promotion expires. :(

post #65 of 171

Does anyone have an extra coupon they aren't planning on using? :[ For some reason I didn't receive the coupon yet and I am waiting for Sephora to respond to me but I'm in a hurry to get something for my mom's birthday. If someone can private message me I'd appreciate it so much!

post #66 of 171

If anyone has an extra to share I would love it! I need to pick up a birthday gift!

post #67 of 171

I went to the Sephora store and found the Tarte Lip Surgence Set and the 4 pack set of the amazonian clay and used by gift card. I'm so happy that I found these in the store since they have not been online for awhile. 

post #68 of 171

If anyone has one they don't plan on using, I would love to have it! Need to buy gifts and saving $15 or $20 would help me so much! Please PM me, thanks in advance!

post #69 of 171
If anyone who doesn't want the $15 or $20 gift card, can you please PM me the gift card # and pin # I would love to use it. I want to buy a face cream. Thanks in advance.
post #70 of 171

LOL, like everyone else, if you have a GC you're not planning on using, I'd really appreciate a PM. It's my birthday this month so I'd like to treat myself ^^;;

I got this:

 

Sephora Favorites - Fragrance Sampler for Her

 

And then I immediately redeemed the scent certificate for this:

 

Prada - CANDY

post #72 of 171

Hm....I really hope the Lorac Pro Palette goes back in stock. :\ I'm kind of peeved the redemption period is so short this year. It went back in stock once but i was out and it was OOS by the time I got home...4 hours later scared.gif I'm trying to figure out what I'd want to get if it doesn't come back in stock... maybe the Naked 2 then.

Oh yay! I ordered that, too but still waiting to receive it. I will redeem it for The Prada Candy most likely.

I'm going to throw this out there just in the off chance that someone sees this - but if any of you ladies and gents won't be using his or her reward please please PM me. I'm trying to get my sister some things for Christmas and this would allow me to get one more item for her! Thanks so much !

so I emailed Sephora saying I had yet to receive any sort of code and got this as a response:

 

We apologize that you are not receiving our promotional email. We have refreshed your subscription. Please add us to your address book or safe senders list so you don't miss an email: (email address here). You should start to receive email from us within 10 business days.

 

er... that so does not solve my problem at all?

Yeah they tend to give really bullshit PC answers, I've noticed. Try calling? :\

I had the same problem. I asked them to reset my e-mail subscription at least four times in a six month span & got that same exact response every single time. 

What worked was I posted in the beautytalk customer service forum that resetting my e-mail subscriptions wasn't working & that it was getting frustrating.  One of the Sephora Beauty Advisors re-set my subscriptions for me & I started receiving e-mails within a couple of days. I still never get any mailed things (catalog, this rewards promo, etc) but I can at least use the e-mailed codes now. 

 

I would definitely call to make your order this time, just to make sure you don't run out of time to redeem this promo. I e-mailed them about receiving the BI & not VIB reward & they said to just call & make a phone order & they'd apply the right reward instead of emailing a new code.

Yayyy I just placed my order with my twenty dollar off coupon, for 13.51 including tax and shipping I'm getting the stila 5th avenue smokey eye collection (6 full size shadows yay!!!) and one of the it kits. I figured at 6 for the price of less than 1, plus the sample kit...how could I resist. 

 

 

The shadow collection looks like this, for anyone interested: 

 

 

 

Its a $108 value, full price sells for 36, and its on sale for 26. Combine that with your coupon and YAY. 

post #79 of 171

I ordered the Hello Kitty - Wild Thing Makeup Palette andTarte - Precious Gems Limited-Edition Waterproof Cream EyeShadow Collection and a Toyoko Milk lip balm in salted carmel.  Price after VIB and a gift card for Christmas 5.42!

post #80 of 171

I haven't placed my order yet, I give up waiting for them to have a nice 500pt reward, so I just won't spend my points!

You are going to be VERY happy with the quality of the eyeshadows.

They are fantastic!

 

I recently picked up the Stila Park Avenue set on sale.

And I LOVE IT!

Good score!

This Sephora Blinged palette is $15.00. It looks like a mini-Naked1 or 2 palette version with lipcolors on it. So cute especially with the bling!

I placed my VIB order and got the Stila Snow Angel Color Palette & Stay All Day™ Waterproof Volumizing Mascara, it was $39 and now is on sale for $29 and is in the special section that is qualified for free holiday shipping with the code (holidayship).  I wanted to order/use my gift card while they're going through without a $50 minimum because I don't really need anything right now but the blushes in the Stila palette are supposed to be really nice and there are 9 of them I think so lots of colors to play with.  My total was $9 and change.  That's pretty great for 18 shadows, the blushes and the mascara.  I'm happy.  I was happy to use my code to save the $6.95 because I've gotten so many great promo codes lately with Sephora that I'm swimming in awesome samples.  I was tempted to get the free travel Boscia White Mask but I really would rather try the black one and I'll hopefully pick it up someday after I've finished some more of the masks I already have.  I love Sephora lately, they're pretty great.  Also I noticed that they credited me 29 points to my VIB account and not just the 9 so that was another bonus.

Would they let me place an order without the $50 minimum? I'm expecting to get Sephora GCs for Christmas so I'm waiting to buy the pricier stuff I want in January.. I hate talking on the phone haha but I'll make a call on Saturday or something. Gotta focus on my next 2 finals for now.

They arrived this morning! Can't say I desperately needed them since I already UD's vice palette and a million other shadows, but I'm happy to add them to my collection...maybe they'll make me want UD's smoked palette less. 

post #86 of 171

has anyone tried stacking these codes? I have 2 (my mom's not using hers) and because it's a giftcard i didn't know if i could use both on one order?

post #87 of 171

You could try, but I hear they might flag accounts that do two codes in one order. idk if it's worth the risk.

post #89 of 171
does anyone know approximately how frequently sephora restocks and/or on which days? The last time something that was oos I was alerted on restocked was 6 days ago but it went oos again before I could grab it ) :
post #90 of 171

I think they add new stuff on Tuesdays. I don't know if that includes restocking though.
