Sephora, why are you making this so difficult?!?

You guys I’ve never tried so hard to spend my money at a place only for them to make me literally not want to have anything to do with them. The stuff I’m hearing surrounding the VIB Sale is atrocious. I don’t know if any of you guys are avid redditors like I am, but I enjoy some of the makeup reddits like r/makeup, r/sephora, and r/makeupaddiction. First, I have to say that I placed two orders, none of which have shipped. They’re telling people it could take 7 or 8 business days to ship. Excuse me what? I mean if this was the first time they’ve ever had the VIB sale I could see that but you’d think they’d be prepared for a larger volume of orders because of the VIB sale they do twice a year. Seriously, get your shit together. Then are the number of wrong orders I’m seeing. Missing items, items that weren’t ordered, and broken items. It’s like they just opened their doors yesterday and they’re still trying to work out the issues. Then I think the worst thing I’ve seen are people whose orders were cancelled without ever receiving notice, who then missed out on items because they were sold out when they had to redo their order. One girl even had her order cancelled twice, and they couldn’t tell her why. Well now that the VIB sale is over, if our orders get cancelled then we miss out on the sale. I’ve been obsessively checking my order because number one, one of the items shows sold out, so will I actually get it? Second, what if they just cancel my order without ever telling me? I’m at the point where I’m like you know if a big sale cripples your business to this degree you need to do some restructuring because this is just unacceptable.

Sephora is shady AF

You guys, I am so beyond mad. I really really wanted the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3 palette. It looks so beautiful and has gotten so many good reviews. When I heard about the upcoming VIB sale, I started loading up my car to start to make decisions about what I wanted to get. I noticed that during the rouge portion of the sale the palette showed as sold out. Then when that portion of the sale was over, it showed as back in stock. Then literally an hour before the second weekend of the sale, the palette was set to out of stock again. They want me to believe that a bunch of people ordered this palette during the week between the two sale weekends at full price instead of waiting until the sale came back? Come the fuck on. What I don’t get is this certainly isn’t Sephoras most expensive product, why this one? It’s really irritating, and I’m definitely not the only one who noticed, if you read the reviews at least two people noticed it too. What do you think about this? Weigh-in on the comments below.


Fall 2017 Sephora VIB sale

So this is literally the only time I shop at sephora. I am not rouge, but I am VIB. Rougue access is the 3rd through the 6th, and VIB is the 10th through the 15th. The codes areΒ 20FORROUGE and 20FORVIB. Rouge members will also have access to the sale during the VIB time frames. As far as I know, at this point Colourpop is the only brand exempt.

The following is my wishlist. Obviously, I don’t already own any of these products, and this list isn’t 100% set in stone. I may remove or add items before the 10th. I want to try to place my order on the 10th cause I don’t want stuff to sell out before I have the chance to order it.

YVES SAINT LAURENT All Hours Full Coverage Matte FoundationΒ – $58



I haven’t decided which one I’m going to go with yet. I have normal/dry skin, I’ve heard good and bad about both, I’m also kind of a foundation junkie, so I’m trying not to buy both. We’ll see on the 10th, I have a feeling my shade will be sold out in one or both of these. I picked shade B20 Ivory in the YSL, and 150 in Fenty. I’m generally fair/light with neutral undertones.

SMASHBOX Photo Finish Primerizer – $42

I’ve heard nothing but good things about this product. I have dry skin so I think this will do great things for me. I have to moisturize like woah before I wear makeup or else I’ll get scaley, flakey skin on my cheeks.

TOUCH IN SOL No Poreblem Primer – $18

I keep hearing Jeffree Star talking about this primer, and you know if his extra ass likes an $18 primer it’s good. I’ve also been watching a lot of wish list/recommendation video and this product keeps coming up over and over.

FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter – $34

I want this in shade lightning dust/fire crystal. I mean I really don’t think this needs any explanation. I haven’t seen a review of these highlighters where they weren’t absolutely stunning.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette – $49

I want this in shade Provocouture. You see these palettes in every single one of Tati’s videos. Marc Jacobs shadows seem to be really great, and this particular shade has some beautiful colors.

STILA Eye For Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set – $45

I have a few shades of the glitter and glow eyeshadows, but luckily none of them are in this set. These are just absolutely beautiful, and this is a great set with a great value.

TARTE Limited-Edition Blush Bazaar Amazonian Clay Blush Palette – $44

This has 8 blushes and 2 highlighters. This also has such a big variety of colors. I don’t have many blushes. When I first started getting into makeup, I was scared of blush. I think this would be a great addition to my collection.

HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Edit – Volume 3 – $80

I haven’t tried any Hourglass products, and these are beautiful colors and I think it’ll be a great opportunity to dip my hand into this brand. I’ve also heard really good thing about this palette.

NATASHA DENONA Lila Eyeshadow Palette – $129

I’ve been wanting to try a Natasha Denona palette, and I think this would be a great time to do so. It’s pricy, it’ll still be over $100 even after the discount, but I think this palette is stunning and I really want it.

BRIOGEO Don’t Despair, Repair!β„’ Deep Conditioning Mask – $36

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this brand. CoffeeBreakwithDani, talks about these products all the time. I also noticed that Kathleen Lights has been talking about them more and more. I have dyed hair, so anything that repairs damage I am all about.

DIOR Diorific Rouge Khol – Holiday Kiss Collection – $38

I’m considering this in the shade deep ruby. Tati reviewed these and they were beautiful and they seemed pretty unique. I also don’t have any Dior beauty products.

KIEHL’S SINCE 1851 Ultra Facial Moisturizer – $29

I’ve heard Kathleen Lights talk about this a lot. I have really dry skin. Right now I’m using Clinique Moisture surge and I love it, but I don’t love how expensive it is. If this is just as good, I’ll use this at $29, over my Clinique which is like $59 I believe.

The tea has been spilled – ABH Subculture Palette


The good (people who liked the palette)…

Wayne Goss



… the bad (people who didn’t like it)…

Jeffree Star

Manny MUA

Laura Lee

Casey Holmes


Shopper Mandy

… and the ugly (people who did ABH wrong).

Alissa Ashley (I’ve not watched her videos, but the way she was digging her brush into the palette I’m not surprised she hit pan, If I did that on Modern Renaissance the same thing would have happened.)


What do you guys think? Are you going to buy this palette? Have you already bought it? Let me know what you think in the comments below!!


[UPDATE] I’m shook!!!

I wanted to post an update to my previous post. Today the ColourPop brushes went on sale. They lowered the price to $50 for the bundle and $55 with the brush roll. I think it’s awesome that they apparently heard their consumers and as a result of the backlash lowered the price. However, I’m still not buying it. Not when I can get a similar morphe set for 39.99$. Morphe is tried and true. I KNOW Morphe brushes are good, I have Morphe brushes and I love them. I honestly thought that ColourPop would be in the price range of say BH Cosmetics, as opposed to being on the high end side. For comparison they’re more expensive than Morphe but not as expensive as Sigma. I still want to applaud them though. That is a really awesome thing for a company to do. I do also want to say I ordered a concealer, a bronzer, and two highlights. Came out to $30, got free shipping. What an amazing deal. I will still continue to support them, I like what they’re doing. I hope they keep being an amazing, affordable brand.

Now that the price is lowered, are you going to purchase the set? Let me know in the comments.
