I'm home from school for winter break, but my friend just texted me that it's -8. Screw it. I'm moving to Cali! Also, I canceled my BB but then resubbed after I saw the "how to get a better box" thing. I'm such a sucker.

On the topic of Sephora employees - the ones inside my jc penney are the best. On two separate visits two different employees recognized me just from coming in there once and talking to them for advice. I wish they carried more products so I could go only to that store!

I bought the Kitten eyeliner online, and I was pretty surprised when I received it that it was so coppery. I do absolutely love it though, I get compliments about how the color brings out the green in my hazel eyes.

the only think i don't really like about our JCP Sephora is they NEVER offer any samples... and i always feel bad asking since they don't ever offer.  We have a full size Sephora at another mall and they are always so willing to try things out and give samples.

i HATE the sephora in my mall.  The girls just stare at me when I walk around. No one greets me or even talks to me. It's really rude so i NEVER shop in store.  I only go in when I want to swatch something..

The sad thing is that the Sephora employess know me. And I usually go to the 5th Ave NY store. sadno.gif

The girls (and guys) at the Sephora store here in KC know me by now. Actually, there is one employee in particular who always calls out to me when I'm in there because he did my makeup once and he's awesome. I've found that the Sephora store employees here are better than the Sephora in JCP. Although, I haven't been in the JCP Sephora in a while, so it may have changed.

 

I often get treated like crap at Ulta which is probably why I don't like to go there very often.

I've only been there one time, and the employees were incredibly pretentious, IMO, but that store was AWESOME.

Complete opposite for me! Even if I'm not buying anything, the Sephora inside JCP girls always offer to make me samples, even when I'm done with my purchase or not looking at anything in particular. I've never once been offered that by regular Sephora employees...weird how it's not consistent.

I used to go to that one a lot.  I was mayor of the Union Square location on 4sq at one time, lol.  I miss NYC...sometimes.

I have like ten minute conversations with the employees at my local Sephora at this point. They're amazing. I've also been treated like junk at all 3 of the Ulta stores I've been to in three different states - I will only go in there for a ridiculous sale at this point. 

 

Back on topic, I am freaking dying for some sort of spoiler video situation. I mean I know they have a whole new office and all of that magic but SHOW ME MY STUUFFFFFFF

I feel you. I'm on a no-buy but keeping my BB so I want some really awesome stuff.

Yay! My page has flipped over to January shipping information!  It's not a link, so I guess it hasn't shipped, but... it's coming soon, I hope!

post #288 of 2106
Omg I think I must be the opposite of the rest of you. If employees leave me alone I don't even consider it rude, but more that they are respecting my wishes lol. To me "rude" employees are ones that actually talk down to you, or give you dirty looks etc. But I worked in customer service for a long time so I know how exhausting constantly greeting everyone is when someone is forcing you to do it.

That one's mine!  Used to be the one at 150ish B'way, but I changed jobs, so changed Sephoras. Haha.

I love the Lexington location. It's big but not overwhelming. Plus it's not touristy like 5th ave!

What about Urban Decay's Half Baked as a dupe for Mary Lou-Manizer? I have it in my UD Naked 2 palette, and it seems similar. (I don't have the Lou-Manizer to compare with anymore, though.)

Yup. It didn't last long though.  I am the mayor of the Sephora by my house and all of the cast members are very helpful there!  In NYC I would be ignored at Sephora all the time smh.  The Ulta in Queens was very helpful though but I didn't feel like travelling there all the way from the Bronx though

Scooby is right no where near being close. Shimmer wise yes, color wise no.

However, ML is closest to Sin from UD Naked...Sin is more on the pink side, but close.
