Anyone have their 20% off purchases made today canceled? I placed 3 orders all in the $30-$75 range and the all have been canceled...weird.

When did you place your order? I just made an order tonight with 20% off and got the confirmation email no canceling.... Hope it won't get cancelled in the next few days!

Over the course of the day. I received the confirmation email, but not a cancelation one. I realized they were canceled when I went to place another order and saw my points had changed, then checked my order status.

@@normajean2008 I think Karen's swatches are more accurate too but also her reviews have a more realistic expectation of the products. ... And she is so into her cat. I'll read Temptalia and makeupandbeautyblog to see what to expect especially since my skin tones is more like Karen's.

Just wondering, I have seen that a few of you mention waiting for your ebates check. How come you don't have it PayPal'ed? I changed to PayPal vs a check awhile ago and it is so much more convenient... Money just magically appears in my PayPal account every 3 months. I hate having to deposit a check because I always seem to forget to stop by the bank so I love that they PayPal!

Hey! I qualified for VIB with an order I placed two days ago, and it shows that on my account history, but I'm still a BI! What gives??? :o

Weirdest thing happened to me - PayPal shows an order I placed over the weekend as having been cancelled, and I would have been p-i-s-e-d (Pised? Anyone?) except I had already gotten a shipping notice for that order this morning. What's the deal? I'm like to queen of getting cancelled shipments actually sent.

 

And before anyone asks, no it wasn't a hold that got dropped. :P It was an actual charge to my card.

Have you returned anything recently? I had something like that happen with a return. Another thought - maybe they haven't charged your card yet and that's what's holding it up? In any case I hope the issue gets resolved soon - I'd give them a call or email to ask.

For those of you who don't know the sad, sordid history of Lime Crime, I beg you to read this. It's the way she reacted once she was outed that is the most offensive.

 

http://www.lipsticksandlightsabers.com/2010/01/lime-crime-beneath-glitter.html

 

There's a lot more, just Google.

 

And not to continuing harping in the racism point (sigh) since it's been hashed out over various threads on MUT in the past, but here's a pretty detailed account of the Chinadoll (no joke) palette/campaign: http://www.portraitofmai.com/2012/01/lime-crime-youre-doing-it-wrong.html#.VGNr1_nF_Ms

 

iWBOoI7.jpg

 

Also please note along with the hilariously racist commentary about what it means to be a "Chinadoll", the model is 1) not Asian and 2) wearing a Japanese kimono....yeah.

 

At this point in my life, I'm not even that upset about the concept itself, though it was crass and racist, I'm more upset about her "apology": I'm very sorry to hear that some of you found the Chinadoll concept offensive. Okay, I get people screw up because you know, if you don't have anyone to tell you you're being culturally insensitive, then maybe you do f*** up. But honestly the "apology" is a slap in the face -- it's not that she's done anything wrong, it's that you're overreacting.

 

So you can see how this is particularly problematic for Sephora to be carrying their brand just off the tails of a campaign which strongly appears that they were racially profiling Asian clientele -- whether or not they were is not the case here. The fact that public perception indicates that, and then to go on to carry a brand which has very recently screwed up incredibly badly with racism against Asian women... yeah. This is why I'm done with Sephora, and i'll happily take my hundreds of dollars spent every year elsewhere.

I placed one on 11/10 and one on 11/11.  Both were sent to the whse and haven't been canceled.

I rarely use Paypal, and my bank allows us to take a pic of the check for deposit so no trip to the bank.  I do it from the comfort of my couch.

My bank does this too but then I'm stuck with the physical check, and I don't want to be responsible for that. XD Banks keep your physical check for a while before they destroy it if I'm correct.

 

Also, woo, my first cashback on Mr. Rebates went through! I was a little worried because I never know with these things. They don't give you anything on the tax though, unlike Ebates -- but I have $8 now from my $25 sephora order which is good for me. It'll be 3 months though before I can request that money ):

@ I've apparently been living under a rock and hadn't heard that much about lime crime until this thread, and... Ugh that "chinadoll" picture and the accompanying "apology" - let's be real, it was just a "sorry not sorry" - make me so angry. It's one thing to be ignorant ("but where are you REALLY from/omg, your English is really good"), which I'm always happy to explain why it's not appropriate or something I don't appreciate without being overdramatic, but it's a whole other mess to not admit you didn't realise you screwed up and to try to shift the blame on people being too ~sensitive instead. Hell, I'm about the least politically correct person there is, but putting a non-Asian model in a black wig, kimono, and adding doll eyes to geisha-y makeup (and those flowers above her head look suspiciously like an attempt at cherry blossoms) and calling her a china doll is enough to make me want to smash my head against a wall in exasperation.

 

But seriously sephora, get your crap together. This past week has been a freaking hot mess.

Oof, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that this whole thing with Lime Crime continues, considering the audacity of her responses.

 

By the way, in the Chinadoll pic, my first instinct was that that wasn't a kimono. I don't know if there's a full body picture which would make it clearer. I don't know what style it is, but at first glance, it doesn't strike me as Japanese. I've lived there and have seen kimonos ranging from department store to boutique, staid to festive. While kimonos can multicolored, each layer is cut from the same roll of cloth. A different cloth at the wrist area is strikingly odd given how that part of the kimono is designed. Also that embroidery detail is very out of place. Either it's from another country or it's a western interpretation of something. Which doesn't make it any better.

It's probably a BS western interpretation. I can tell you it's not a Chinese qipao because they're usually short-sleeved now, and if they're not they're cut to about the elbow or are half-sleeves and slim. I think the interpretation of the picture was that it looked "more" like a kimono because of the sleeves' style, but you're right in that it really doesn't look distinctly or at least authetically Japanese either.

Just an update on Sephora: I also posted a comment on their facebook calling them out for working with Lime Crime which has had a history of racism problems with Asian cultures and how dumb that was on the heels of their latest blunder with racial profiling. It did not contain any personal information on my part -- only that it was negative towards them. I did see additional comments about the VIB sale and other Asian customers begging people to get their accounts reactivated, and I can report now that 1) my comment is gone and 2) those comments from the other Asian customers are gone.

 

*kanyeshrug* I sent them a direct message on FB voicing my anger but I thought it would be worth reporting to you all that they are just indiscriminately deleting negative comments on their FB even when they're not abusive or contain personal information, so don't believe their lies as justification if that's the statement they're going to put out.

 

But seriously. So done. I'm about $60 points away from 1000 pts but I'm going to buy stuff and then return them so I can take advantage of the money I already spent. I really just don't give a crap if it's unjust. Screw you Sephora, I don't owe you anything. You've had enough of my money already and clearly you disrespect your clients so what the hell ever.

Wow, I didn't realize all the controversy about Lime Crime. I was excited when I saw Sephora started carrying it because I've always heard good things about it, but I looked them up on Google after reading some comments here.  The owner's responses to things just make her seem bratty and whiny, things I hate in an adult let alone a business owner.

 

Shalott- I'll have to remember to try the Rimmel lip products. I'm really glad I didn't waste my money on the Lime Crime items if they're not good quality.

 

In other news... it's taking so long for Sephora to ship orders. I want my stuff!  I'm actaully losing excitment about the products I ordered.  Kinda takes some of the fun out of buying stuff with my birthday gift card.  So much for 2-day shipping not being affected. Ugh

I haven't gotten any shipping notice either (I'm BI) and I ordered last Friday. When they say 2-day shipping won't be affected, I assume they mean it'll take 2 days *from the day it ships* which could be anytime.  The only reason I shop at Sephora is for brands that are only carried there (like Bite).  Other than that I just go with indies (not counting lime crime which I consider to be a brand that likes to portray itself as quirky and indie as their gimmick to get sales).

I'm not a fan of Temptalia's swatches.  I still look at them, but they are never ever accurate, in my opinion.  And I don't even bother to read her reviews any more.  

 

What is the point of a lipstick lasting 6-10 hours and never reapplying?  1- You will never ever use up a tube of lip product before it turns bad if you never reapply and only use it once a day, unless that is the only tube you use.. 2- isn't that part of the fun of makeup and being girly with makeup?  Is it really such a dang chore to reapply once or twice (depending on formula)?  Maybe I'm just weird, lol.  

 

Ugh, speaking of Musing of a muse blog.. I like her arm swatches, but if she doesn't lift up her dang head in photos for lip swatches, I swear one day I'm going to figure out how to reach through the screen and do it for her! She's got little thin lips, and she "poses" her head so low to get a better/flattering chin angle, and then you can't hardly see the lip color!  She did one post last year or early this year, I forget exactly, where she had her head all the way up and her hair down and curly, and she looked so beautiful in it, and the swatches looked fantastic... why she can't do that on a normal basis is beyond my realm of blog loving understanding.  Sorry, this just drives me complete bananas.  I also take her reviews with a grain of salt.  She either has no idea how to apply half the stuff she reviews, or she has severely weird skin or something.  Everything people rave about, she finds faults with it--can't see what others do, doesn't get the effect others do, etc etc.. I don't know, I just find her very harsh or silly in a lot of reviews, for various reasons--kind of like others with Temptalia's reviews.  

 

I also like this blog-- mostly sunny blog.  I really like her blog.  She's got great arm and face swatches, fair reviews, and I've never seen something she swatched that looks way different in real life.  I like her attitude too.  She isn't all "uppity" or snobby like she is the be all/know all like others already mentioned.  Plus, for myself, she's the most accurate for skin tone, so if it looks good on her, it will most likely look good on me, and I've never been let down yet.  

 

Also I like Karen over at makeupandbeautyblog.  Her swatches I've found to be pretty accurate and reviews pretty fair.  She posts a lot about cats/her cat though, so if you don't like skipping over cat stuff or cats you may not like her blog.  She's pretty funny though, I like her silliness.  

 

`````````````````````

In other news, I have been waiting on my ebates check to show up.  They told me by email on Oct 31st they're mailing my check early and it is on the way.. but it never showed, then my account said they cut the check on the 6th of Nov..  I received it yesterday.  Normally my check arrives by the date shown online, which has been between the 11th-15th of each pay month... My account said my check would originally arrive on Nov 11th.

How is getting my check to me on the 10th considered a big enough deal/early enough to warrant an entire email saying it is coming early??  LOL  I was just like.. why bother mentioning it is coming early!?  Whatever..at least it is here. :)  And now I got another 142$ to blow on whatever.  

 

I want to buy more from Sephora, but they are taking SO long to process orders right now.  I've got an order from Friday morning still not shipped, and one from Saturday afternoon not shipped.. I placed one yesterday that isn't shipped, obviously, and that was the only order placed when they put up the delayed processing warning.  

 

Dang, I sound really ranty in this post, lol.  I guess a full tummy of rice puts me in a weird place haha.  

 

Does anybody know for sure if orders are still going through with the discount code tonight?  Or if the orders will be honored/not cancelled/get you banned?  I haven't braved Facebook enough to look there yet.  

i LOVE mostly sunny and she is friends with the sara at color me loud which is a great blog too - the beauty look book has great photos but sabrina NEVER responds to anything - i have seen her ignore too many people i just want to delete from feed! the few pictures i have seen of her she always looks so mad + unhappy! no clue?!/

 

cafe makeup can have good swatches but she is very, very fair.........

 

i totally LOVE karen, she is so beautiful + so sweet!! the issue I have is that her blog is like one big AD and i never really get a review but one sentence that its great or it's lame and good swatches - the website always does a screen pops up on my computer to get me to join every time i go there - being allergic to cats does not help me love Tabs but he's cute!          

 

techno cupcake is amazing, if you have any questions ever just ask or she will even get items if requested - she also does YouTube videos, she is very good + if she knows someone is expert in that m/u line, she will ask and help

 

 

i am bummed as someone suggested mr. rebates as it was 12% last week - i signed up - went in through the website but not one order i made the entire past week showed up for any cash back not just at Sephora, it shows that i went to website but no purchases and then it says in fine print, if you use a code it may void it - not sure what the deal is but at least with ebates it works so i wish i had just used them with the 4%!! if anyone knows whats up with mr. rebates please let me know! I won't use again unless i missed something big time but it seemed the same as ebates - go to site, click and voila......

 

why not have check go to paypal, i think it is way faster.....

 

had to call sephora as of course I forgot to put code on one order, the highest costing one of course and they were nice, they gave me credit but not back to my card only in sephora money only, whatever it will be spent anyway!!

i am loving bite but slight issue as i live in warm climate and one of the items melted but stayed together, i opened and the whole lippie just smooshed onto lips! 

 

have you tried ardency inn? they have some awesome single shadows + lippies (rose something was beautiful!) have you ever tried rouge bunny rouge? i'm sure they will have a big sale for turkey day or around then....they are based outside US in UK perhaps, not sure but gread products, a gut on YouTube named Seth (barton, i think) was a rep for them so check him out

 

my friend who is addicted to m/u and ONLY buys make up ever (i at least buy a scarf or bag here or there!) and she is loves harder to find brands like by terry, rouge bunny rouge, addiction and suqqu make up.....she is always looking for indies

 

i have been wanting to try Ilia out in callie......any other good ones you know of?

 

i am so happy sale is over as i am sick of the sephora website, i will be ready again in time for advent calendar goodies! i hope they do some good reward boxes, the dior one this year was teeny tiny - last year the products seemed bigger! i tried to grab YSL but missed it! my fave has been the balenciaga one with the perfume + scarf, the scarf is nice and it's silk - when i called Sephora today to fix the order, she saw that i used FOUR 150 point codes on small orders prior to sale and was like wow, you got a lot of points from that game! ha!

I feel bad that you are having trouble with Mr. Rebates.  I was one of the people who was encouraging others to use it.  I haven't had any trouble with them before, but you may want to contact them about your cash back not showing up.  I also made several purchases at Sephora using the giftvib code and the cash back showed up on my account.  Sometimes it can take several days for it to show up.

    • No, it does not affect my self-esteem either way.  Tbh I feel most confident when I'm not wearing makeup.  Perhaps makeup application can be seen by many women as a form of self-care but it's actually more hygienic not to wear it often (sounds weird but it's true), and imo women are coerced into its application by jobs, other women, and men.  Women are pressured to perform femininity or they will be met with violence, which doesn't stop at makeup application (which is a skill not an art form).
    • Week 2 of my new plan, with my new concept of time as two mini work weeks (Mon-Wed and Fri-Sat) and two mini weekends (Thursday and Sunday). I think this will help with not getting as tired during the work week or bored during the weekends. Being bored during the weekends leads to spending on shopping or eating! I like the new plan so far.  I finished my full sized Yves Rocher White Botanical Cleanser. That's the White Botanical Cleanser and Toner done, and a few days of Cream left. The goal for the rest of July is to use that cream up along with one pack of 20 face cleansing cloths.  I have a nine month supply of cleanser and cleansing cloths to finish.
