  1. this is actually a great event getting to learn something, free HD blush, gift card, brush and mini setting powder. that's EXACTLY what all rouges should be offered. this is the first time they're actually offering a good event and GWP for VIBRs. they're probably testing this in NYC? hopefully. sorry for those of you that missed it. i'm glad they're capping it but possibly having every NYC sephora offer it would have been a better deal. i'm lusting after everything laura mercier so i'll take that event here, please =)
  2. i'm a birchbox naysayer, too, to whomever above posted that. i don't have the budget to waste on products i won't like. it's fun to try some samples but for the most part, no thanks. i really like to love what i buy. believe it or not, even as a VIBR, i'm picky about everything i buy and love and use every item i own. i prefer brick-and-mortar shopping much more than online. both is best; i'll easily notice all types of products from a brand i love in store more than online but maybe something that's in a weird spot at the store, from a brand i normally gloss over, or just isn't stocked by mine is something i can check out online. it makes me sad to think the future of shopping could be exclusively online. i am wildly surprised to hear that you all seem to think lowly of the beauty studio and testers. i agree that it's BS as a perk; the staff are there to sell and they will expect a purchase after providing full makeup service. additionally, not all of them are that skilled at applying makeup (nor are they trained, although they do have training in sanitation). i have never ever ever ever seen anything gross happen with the testers by the staff. they always disinfect everything they use. if staff are near me, even if they know me and see me in the store constantly, they'll always reach over to disinfect something for me or remind me. i've only once or twice seen people put eyeshadow on in the store. that's just an item you might not want to share. everything else can be cleaned with alcohol and every little tester station and studio has a depression-function bottle as well as one to aerosolize it. anyways, i use the testers constantly and i promise i'm a freak about germs. and a pre-med student. to the person who's friend got conjunctivitis at the studio after a makeover, i'm sorry. however, conjunctivitis is simply a number of bacteria cells getting trapped in the eye. this means that the items used weren't cleaned. however, it doesn't mean they were unnecessarily pathogenic or especially mean and vicious bacteria. i think it should be known that you demand everything used on you is clean. maybe i'm different; i've definitely spoken up at a doctor's office or restaurant to ensure my health is a priority. that being said, you can get illnesses like chlamydia or gonorrhea in the eye. no joke. very rare, but still. i am super busy and hardly sign on MUT anymore but i just have to rant again about vib rouge sucking. i can't handle how awful it is haha. i was like most of the vibs- happy and content thinking sephora was a bit stingy and could do better. the unfulfilled promises are disgusting. funny enough, they do explicitly mention things that never happen: special surprise gifts.. one fb post in august i found the other day explicitly mentioned cocktails/dinners with brand founders. also, it occurred to me the other day that sephora employees get thousands of dollars worth of gratis every year so they can afford to do better by VIBR members.
