I did, but then I thought I should probably hold off on my spendier purchases, so that I'll be able to requalify for Rouge next year.

 

I pulled the trigger on the Sephora atomizer set they had in the sale section though (2 for $11, almost the same price as a Flo). I tried to put multiples in to see if I could wait a couple more hours, but it readjusted the quantity to 1 because of limited stock, and it immediately went out of stock when I checked out. Anyone have any experience with this atomizer?

 

As it is, I'll be qualifying for Rouge with this purchase, which is really scary but also exhilarating. Looking forward to free shipping until 2015.

OK, so I was looking at the BeautyTalk threads over at Sephora and the mods were saying that the sale starts at midnight Monday (aka 45 minutes ago). Going to do my shopping, hopefully the system will register that I hit Rouge soon so that I can take advantage of the free shipping the rest of the week.

I have both the Sephora brand atomizer (not the "Putting on the Spritz" set, the "Universal Atomizer") and the Flo brand atomizer.  I prefer the Sephora brand one.  The Flo one leaks, for some reason.  I plan on getting 2 more of the Sephora brand atomizers and ditching the Flo one.  It appears as though the "Putting on the Spritz" set is sold out, but if I recall correctly, it had a different design than the regular Sephora atomizer, so I can't really say anything about that.  I'd highly recommend the Sephora brand "Universal Atomizer" though.

I have the Flo and the "Universal Atomizer" from sephora- but my Flo has never leaked (I got it from BirchBox) and my Universal leaks instantly! :(

Hmm... I wonder if mine is defective...

Is anyone else experiencing issues with VIB rouge qualifications?  Initially today I needed to spend almost $150 to reach VIB rouge (per the Sephora site).  I made 3 separate orders with sub totals (before tax) totaling $170 so I should have made the cut.  After my 2nd order it still said I needed to spend $103 when at that time it should have been $40.  Then I made another order of $60 and now it is telling me I need to spend $117 to reach VIB Rouge.  Clearly something is wrong.  It is actually increasing the amount I need to spend after I complete purchases.  I am going to give it some time, since I did make 3 separate orders (to use 3 promo codes wink.gif) maybe the system needs to catch up, but I must say I am a little concerned.

Luckily I was making these orders anyway with items I already had in my cart and was saving for a good promo (3 X points, yay!) but since I know I should have qualified for VIB Rouge I would really like to reap the rewards.

When I was checking out it told me that it would take 2-3 days for my status to be updated to VIB Rouge on my account. So hopefully that's all it is for you too!

Hey ladies, just a heads up on a little bit of what to expect from this new status.

This is a response from Sephora on their FB page to someone who asked about what to expect. 

Looks like every VIB Rouge won't get the same offers from what they are saying below.....

 

We are testing lots of new initiatives over the next year with our new tier, VIB Rouge. Some clients will get access to events, some will get amazing gifts and some will get access to exclusive online sales. Stay tuned and opted-in to email to make sure you enjoy all the benefits of VIB Rouge. When we’re ready to share the details, you’ll be the first to know!

This is a VERY disturbing statement. I do NOT appreciate being treated differently than others who are in the same level as I am. Not shooting the messenger though. Thanks so much Bedazzled for passing on the news. I'll try to keep my eye out and see what others might receive in order to help me evaluate whether or not being Rouge is really worth it.

When I made Rouge level, it didn't tell me how much I needed to spend to reach it.  I had to add up all my purchases from the year, and I ended up being like 50/60$ away.

Once I had my order ready to check out, it had a pop up window for rewards, and informed me I made Rouge status, and let me add the welcome kit to my order.

 

Your online account is probably acting like that because you made multiple purchases.  It doesn't immediately recognize each order in real time, so it has to process the order to figure it out.  Once all your orders process and ship out, the next time you log in it will probably tell you you're Rouge level and allow you to get the welcome kit (or it should do this anyways).

Thanks for the input. I scrutinized the picture more closely, and it looks like the atomizer in that set is more like Travalo's design. The Universal Atomizer looks almost almost like a Flo, though, so I'm surprised that they had such different results.

So far we don't know if by offering clients different things they may mean that they will just differ by neighborhood etc. It might not necessarily mean by amount of $ previously spent- Though honestly, it worries me too.

I know companies like Victoria's Secret do this already and profile their registered customers 101 ways to offer them subtly different deals to change or encourage different buying habits.

 

One good thing is that places like MUT allow us to compare and contrast our experiences and what we're all getting from the program- see how big these differences really are!

I understand the concern and the desire for all things to be equal.  But living in a state that is considered rural (and where the VIP store events NEVER happen), I would hope that I would receive an incentive that doesn't put me at a disadvantage from other VIB Rougers simply because I live a 2.5 hour drive away from the nearest metropolitan city.  I may never attend a special VIP event, but I would love to have other incentives that are equally as unique and awesome, which is what I think they're attempting to do with VIB Rouge.

my impression was that it's random. all of the perks listed by that person are on the sephora beauty insider info page dedicated to vib rouge. everyone is supposed to experience all of those perks.

I hope this is the case, but I still don't know why the amount I need to spend has increased after making another order (and no returns) I will probably wait until Thursday and if nothing changes I'll give Sephora a call.

I'd call them and straighten it out with the CS.  I had something similar happen and I called CS, they looked up the last two purchases, totaled it and manually changed my status over the phone.  

 

I wouldn't wait much more then until tomorrow morning (unless you don't mind), with the bonus week going, their people and systems are going to be busy, maybe that's why you experienced the wonky numbers...

I agree, I live almost 4 hours from a Sephora so in store incentives would be lost on me. Unless I talk a friend into going in for me, but strangely most of my friends don't wear makeup.

what exactly does someone buy an atomizer for? i mean i get you could put fragrance in there, toner, brush cleaner.. i just don't get why lol. even for traveling, i'm sure most people own a rollerball or less than two ounce size of many things. i can imagine most people don't travel enough for it to be worth buying atomizers over a few cheaper things or just carrying limited supplies they already have in small sizes.

Not everything is available in a rollerball, and some people already bought a large bottle of something that they would rather just decant into an atomizer than *also* buy a rollerball.  And some of us have bad (*smash*) histories with rollerballs.  They're not always super sturdy, as that woman on the bus a couple of months ago who dropped a can of pop on her rollerball of whatever that *stench* was can tell you.  Atomizers can be much less prone to breaking.  I used to have one in a metal case that was virtually indestructible.  And some people prefer to apply fragrance via spray rather than rollerball.  The mist from a spray will cling to your clothes/hair (and trying to scent your hair with a rollerball can be completely not worth the effort), and that's the whole point for some people.  It's just a matter of what works for each individual person.  And you don't need to travel to want an atomizer.  You could be going out for drinks after work.

I use mine for samples that don't have a spray top. I am kind of clumsy and if I drop the atomotizer, I'm not going to spill it everywhere like I do with the vial.

ETA: like the poster mentioned above, I also don't like applying with a rollerball.
post #143 of 1056

how do you get a rollerball scent into an atomizer? actually, any perfume. the tops don't screw off on any of mine. they should just make rollerballs purse sprays. aside from fumbling, that would take care of a lot of it.

I couldn't agree more.  Every time I get a new fragrance I also buy an atomizer to dispense some of it in to.  It beats buying a rollerball in addition to the fragrance and I personally prefer to apply a fragrance with a spray than with a rollerball (although I do have a small collection of rollerballs too).  Also I like to keep my current fragrance with me in my purse, so for me atomizers are great smile.gif

A lot of atomizers come with a little funnel.  The small end of the funnel is placed in to the atomizer and then you spray the perfume (or whatever it is you would like to get into the atomizer) in to the top (larger) end of of the funnel and the product drains inside the atomizer.  It's a quick and easy process smile.gif

I use tweezers to pop out the little ball.

Heads up, there's a bonus beauty bag that's being given out this week. I believe it's supposed to be given out at Sephoras and Sephoras in JCP Friday through Sunday, but there are a couple of people reporting that their stores have already started giving them out. It's also online, but it's not live yet: http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?skuId=1527464&productId=P381936

Is it really that easy? Off to try this out...

Thanks for posting this!  I love Sephora beauty bags, but I may pass on this one.  The samples itself aren't tempting - I have received 2 of them today in a different bag.  I may change my mind based on the makeup bag itself - that I can never get tired of! :-)
