i used a sephora gift card for some purchases and a few were cancelled as they could not verify payment! of their own gift card!! coo-coo!!

 

 

i just rec'd my first ysl lippie -  it was out of it's gold box in package, top off and lipstick is smushed on top from flying around box i suppose during shipping - i ordered a white powder during VIB and it looked like it had snowed in my box as it was everywhere! i find if i don't place a large order the items gets tossed about! 

 

i picked up the bare minerals 500 point perk and blush is pretty on quick swatch, cute set if anyone is looking for something with some spare points, hehehe!!

 

i tried on the YSL and i am not loving the feel or strange taste of YSL, i had visions of yummy mango as i probably watched too many you tube videos! it is the rouge volupte formula in 01 beige.....do y'all love this formula? am i missing something?

 

i love bite, chanel glossimers + TF lippies, did TF just kill it for me to try others?!? 

I love YSL lippies, but my favorite formulas are the shine ones and the candy shine (sheer).  I wasn't as big a fan of the regular rouge volupte, they were too streaky/chalky for my tastes.  I don't remember exactly what, but I know I did not like the fragrance/taste that gets in my mouth of those regular volupte ones compared to the shines/candy shines.

This happened to me on Black Friday. I placed a bunch of orders to maximize the promos and they were all cancelled because they couldn't verify payment, even though I was using store credit. Such a bummer.

 

Then I sent an e-mail asking what was up and they told me that my account was banned because they saw multiple BI cards associated with my address. But when I called the hotline, they said they couldn't see any issues on their end and they were able to place an order and I've been able to place online orders as well.

 

I couldn't believe they would just casually tell me in an e-mail that my account was be cancelled when it wasn't.

I also noticed some of the products in the sale section are things I picked up at the sale LAST year! It must still be safe to use, especially if it's a powder product, but I have to wonder about the continued efficacy of a product that's years out from its manufacture date, even if it's never been opened.

I have shipping orders for all my orders except todays for the 6 polishes. I did redeem points on both $1 orders though. Im wondering if they cant canvel if you redeem or if Im just so not a threat lol

 

I placed 6 orders (all got points, dollar amounts ranged from $1 to $15; did not redeem any points on any of the orders). Just got shipping confirmation on four of them, still waiting on the other two.

I loooove YSL, the Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy is divine, and the Gloss Volupte is my HG lipgloss.

 

..... Tom Ford on the other hand, I think is terrible, and waaay over priced. For $50 the Lipstick Queen Silver Screen lipsticks are a much better formula. So, it is all just personal preference! I won't buy any more TF lipsticks, but I can't wait to get more YSL!

Even powders are only "supposed" to be good for 24 months. That means when you buy it there's a chance something could be or will be wrong with it soon. A retailer of cosmetics should be sensitive to this. I personally make the choice to use old cosmetics but that's my personal choice. Someone new to sephora or buying for someone else has no way of knowing that is (way) old product. I'm not sure how I'd fix it from a retail standpoint but from a consumer standpoint it's disappointing.

I think we're going to get early access to the 20 off clearance again. If you put extrarouge (last year it was extraearly) it says this promotion has not started yet

Yay!!! I wonder how early this will start!!! There are actually lots of things I want from the sale section right now.... plus, with that 250 points glitch, it's even more incentive! I hope we get more than a day ahead..... it'll be so awesome!!!!

Oh yea the suggested replacement rates for cosmetics is INSANE! I don't throw anything unless it gives me issues or smells lol

Speaking of expiration dates.... I noticed something that kind of disturbs me.  They say to replace mascara every 3 months, some say 6.  I tend to use it 3-4 months, depending on how fast it dries up/is empty.  

 

Yet I looked as my Shisedo mascara primer, and it has the open lid icon with 24 moths on it!  Toss out after 24 months of being opened?  1--How can that last 24 months if used regularly.. 2- gross!  All that bacteria etc.  

 

How can a primer be listed as that much longer than a mascara, it is basically clear mascara anyways?   

 

In other news, my order placed with the extra points shipped today!  (and if you order the Nest wasabi pear products-they'll come from the Baltimore warehouse, lol).

I have really old mascaras, as long as they do what I need them to do I don't toss them. I've never had an issue with them, really other than really liquidy things separating to the point where you can't incorporate them or things drying out, I don't have mush issue with my cosmetics. I do need to do a cull (just things that are done), I started a few months ago and forgot about it.

I am concerned about the age of things though since they have no qualms selling the elemental stuff from the orange year that's what 2 yrs ago?

 

 

I'm sorry, your whole sentence confused me...'elemental stuff from the orange year'...what does that phrase mean?  (sorry, my best guess is that Elemental is a brand - you just didn't capitalized - or - like bare minerals maybe it isn't supposed to be...moving on...and then the orange year...like 'orchid' was the color for 2014 was there a year that orange was the color??  HELP ME!!  PLEASE!!  LOL!!!)

 

And I only want to know because it seems an important reference for something I should look out for when ordering from Sephora's sale section.  And I may or may not have placed 3 orders from their sale section today.   :ph34r: But not for points...I don't even know if I received bonus points as I didn't see them jump out at me LOL!    Thank you!!

Damn.  This is where I have such a disadvantage!  I probably bought something old...but was NEW TO ME!  Ugh.

 

Do you know if the Tarte (four square) eye shadow is old?  I hadn't seen that before.

 

There were 4 total Tarte shadows/palettes.  One of them I bought earlier in the year (the one with the two blushes on the left) and the other two I didn't buy because I just went palette happy these past couple of months and I have too many, I am starting to gift them away...

Be careful with tarte clearance because tarte/boscia are more natural ingredients they tend to have shorter shelf lifes. Not to say they're bad but read reviews find out original release dates especially for LE runs

Be careful of skincare unless you'll use it immediately. Active ingredients can degrade. Sorry multiple posts just kinda posting as I think of them.

Aww, looks like they fixed the glitch for the 250 bonus points that were showing up on all orders before.  I just placed another order, damn sale page!, and didn't get any bonus points.  

 

I picked up the smashbox cream shadow in neptune, eyeliner brush, and tarte blush in buff.

Eugh, I just found this out too. Good thing I only bought $2 worth of stuff (Sephora Color Hit NP). I was really hoping to benefit from this. At least I got one 250 point glitch. But now instead of being close to 1000 points, I only have 633. *shakes fist* At least I got the Hourglass 500 point perk for 250 points!

Went to Sephora yesterday and one of the sales girls ordered the Tokyomilk Dark trio since she couldn't find it. Also bought Naked Basics 2 and a Bite lip pencil mini. The person who rung up those purchases didn't get my VIB stuff entered correctly and so I ended up back there and bought the Make up Forever studio case and a Koh Gen Do cleansing water since I hear so much about it. I am $46 from Rouge now. Glad I went back since we will be seeing my stepdaughter today and then she is going out of town for a while and that was part of her Christmas present.

Are you going to try to hit Rouge?

    • HAHA:) It is quite funny and even true sometimes;)))
    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
    • Yes, poker is quite interesting for me. But I don't play for money..
    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now.
