Sephora Active Codes- Codes only thread - Codes, Coupons

Recommended Posts

Sephora now sells Lime Crime?!  I have just enough on my gift card to pick up two items with the GIFTVIB code that is still working, and I was all set to hit place order. I think I'm going to try and save the little bit that's left on my card though to put towards Black Friday.  Hmmm...

Ladies - I need opinions.  I have a ton of palettes.  All of the TooFaced palettes, all the naked, stila, and most of the tarte.  I have last years Kat Von D also. 

 

I have been looking at the Hello Kitty and Kat Von D Star Studded for the past few days.  Should I purchase or am I good enough.  I tend to stay on the neutral side so maybe they are too colorful for me.  Any suggestions? or perhaps just tell me the eyeshadow formulas stink, then my mind will be at ease for missing them.

Would a C- grade from Temptalia help ease your mind? :P

You can see her swatches too... definitely some of the pigments look super bleh. It's too bad. It will probably sell well anyway just because parents who want to give their kids something cutesy

 

edit: oop, here's the kat von d one: http://www.temptalia.com/category/brands/kat-von-d-brands

Also a C+ rating, so not faring much better

I looked at and swatched the Kat Von D Star Studded palette in store. The packaging in my opinion was not cute and the pans were super small compared with say the Naked palettes. That's how I decided to pass on that!

Thanks Kyuu and ColoradoBabe, that was the help I needed.  I'm walking away from the computer happy and content (and with a fatter wallet).  I'll be happy with my collection as is.

Look up the reviews for the kat von d! People are like how could they put this product out?! It's that bad I guess. I did a few swatches and I was not impressed. Holiday palettes are a huge deal..she has put out so many amazing palettes so why not stick with that formula we all know and love?!

I went to get my mirror yesterday and they hadn't received their shipment yet.  Usually when I go to pick up my freebie though they are already out though. 

 

Is this the freebie that comes on the JCP sephora mailer?  If it is by the time my mom finds my mail they wont have it... :(

That one purplish eyeshadow in the KVD palette is SHOCKING. Even $1 wet n wild shadows don't apply anywhere near that badly!!

 

That being said, I always take temptalia's "grades" with a grain of salt because I don't like how she reviews lipsticks. I just visit her site to look at swatches. It doesn't sit right with me that she'll rave about how a lippie gets 6-8 hours of wear for a normal day - but apparently a normal day for her while testing is just a cup of coffee and maybe a few sips of water! And she'll knock the grade down pretty low if it needs reapplying within 2-3 hours. That's nowhere near a "normal" day of wear and tear on my lips, and based on the amount of water I drink every day I definitely don't mind having to reapply my lipstick every few hours.

Awesome...I wonder if they will be adding the grunge palette?

This might have already been mentioned, but I am pretty happy with the Benefit holiday blush set - with the VIB discount it came to $29! And I have never in my life hit the pan of a blush, so sets like that are a much better "investment" than individual full-sized packaging.

Sameee. I was already iffy about Sephora. I spent enough at Ulta and department stores this year that I could have easily hit Rouge but I've had some bad CS experiences with Sephora.  Now I'm pretty firmly not going to shop at Sephora anymore. I just cashed in 500 points and I won't look back.  I do not want my money supporting people like Doe.

Even other than me total side-eye of their company on the racism thing, wasn't there some big drama over the fact that some products weren't vegan before?

Also not being cruelty free... I always have a big mouth about the topic, but really, I'd be suspicious of anyone making that claim unless if you have total control of your supply chain and can verify it.

 

But if Sephora gets their asses kicked over Lime Crime's false claims (as now advertised on their website) I would be the first here to popcorn.gif

 

I think I have a straggling $20 and change left in gift cards... I'm going to return a few things which I think won't be in GC but in case they are, I'm going to spend the last 930ish points I have and then not buy anything else. shaking my head so much at sephora...

Kinda late to the party, but the kvd is terrible! I swatched in store and it was really spotty, I agree some of the wet and wild are better.

But if you need some enabling the Vice palette is awesome. I purchased it on a whim and even though the packaging isn't my favorite, the product it very good. I'm a neutral girl mostly, but wanted some color that is wearable on the daily.

OMG I agree with you!! Everytime I wear any lipstick I can only get a couple of hours of wear... nothing really holds up that well after a full meal and a drink... maybe she just doesn't eat or drink or ever press her lips together or talk? Lol.

 

I really don't trust her swatches either because I've swatched things for my blog and in stores and they never look like her ultra-vibrant ridiculous swatches. I think it's because she uses really bright white lights but I mean the real world doesn't have that kind of lighting lol

Do they ever restock holiday gift sets? One of the Bite sets I was considering sold out during this sale, but I'm wondering if there's a chance it might reappear before the end of the year.

i thought i've read somewhere that she adjusts the color of the photos so that they'd look as close as possible to the real thing..

 

what i don't trust about her blog is her dupe list. so fail! haha i still really enjoy her blog though.

I feel like she may have mentioned that she makes a conscious effort to not even press her lips together - I don't want to know how long a lipstick lasts if I don't eat/drink/press my lips together, I want to know if it'll miraculously last through a greasy southern meal lol! Or, y'know, if it tends to fade strangely (cough sephora rouge infusion cough) or feather so I don't accidentally go to a fancy event and turn into the joker without realising it!

 

Her lighting is definitely fancy/pro and not very real-life appropriate, but I find that I get a good enough impression of how lip products will look on me to keep me going back to check her pictures. I do have to mentally darken her lip swatches by a few shades though, since her lips are paler than mine - that's probably why I don't really mind that her swatches aren't 100% accurate lol!

Seconded (or thirded). Everything always looks really light and vibrant. Brighter and paler than it is. I mean, I know Mac Rebel looks different on different people, but I would never recognize it from her photos: http://www.temptalia.com/mac-rebel-lipstick-review-photos-swatches

I know! I'm always super "..." at ladies who are like "oh, I see OCC / Stila / ____ and it stays on me an entire day." I did actually go to a party once with a friend who wore OCC Stalker with the OCC primer I think and it definitely did not look like it budged on her. For me, it's Revlon Top Tomato even though I tend to dislike the texture. I find it works best if you use it as the base and layer more (red) color on it. I've definitely gotten through an entire meal with it barely budging, and I am the worst about keeping lipstick in tact when I eat and drink XD

I've had pretty good wear with her lipsticks.  With the painted love ones I do my 8 hour work shift including a lunch and its still on when I get out.  And I recently got Underage red in The Star studded look and it lasted me morning til night.  I had to scrub it off.

Emergency!  911!  Stat. 

 

Okay, calm down a little.  I'm placing an order and my friend wants in on the fun.  She wants a blush/blush kit and tends to wear corals w/o no shimmer.

 

Ideas?
