The Fenty Mattemoiselle got me. I got the F’n Black, because now seems the time to play with black lipstick.

I keep hoping Natasha Denona’s Gold or Metropolis palettes will go on sale, but no luck so far.

Not surprised the Norvina palettes are on sale – from memory they were pretty average.
Needless to say that Sephora Australia isn’t having anything like this kind of sale……

Yep kjh – we pay a very hefty price for our makeup. Poor Australian dollar + international shipping rates + cosmetics tax + retailers mark up = very expensive.
I rarely buy anything from Mecca.

I’m always surprised at this. I know when a coworker in Australia comes over, he goes on a shopping spree. Last time, his lovely wife came and I took her to Sephora. She went nuts. She bought almost $1500 worth of stuff for herself, her friends and family. Occasionally, I will make a purchase for her and mail it as a “gift”. It’s just crazy about the markup.

Plus the small size of the market doesn’t help decrease unit cost. Whole continent for 25m people. In small cities they just get like a crazy 50 units of an item – can you image the unit cost of transporting that measly # of items? On the plus side, stuff run out less fast. When things run out in USA I ask Oz friends to find it locally and more often than not they’re successful. Better than paying the Ebay vultures.

I think the products that have the biggest discount or are on sale first are the ones the retailer cannot sell at full price – eg the Norvina palettes. I recall that they rated pretty poorly.
Ditto for the lipstick shades that are unpopular.
Anyway, I hope that everyone who wants to, can pick up a bargain.

Agreed. So are the majority of sales with selected products. Overstock Clearance. Ulta’s 21 days I find to be the same; the stuff I want is never included. At least in retail here, they CALL it a clearance sale.

I feel like there are always big sales now a day. I really are not tempted by anything sale anymore, unless it is something that has been on my wish list for a long time. For the most part, I am happy to pay Colourpop price for Colourpop products so unless it is something that is absolute best in its class, why spend the money?

This is the second time much of the Peach Too Faced collection has been on sale recently; makes me think we may be seeing a discontinuation. I took advantage and bought the Peach Perfect powder again…it’s one of my favorites, and I’ll be very sad if it is on its way out!

Thank you for featuring interesting sales items and updating this.

May I bring up something that happened the other day at my local JCP Sephora? I had been avoiding it since our retail stores reopened because the JCP Sephora had been roped off and required special access to get inside. A few days ago, I saw there was no line or even people inside so I decided to go inside.

I was allowed inside after being told about all the controls, but it was so dismal in there! The thing that really got me, and wasn’t a policy mentioned or enforced when I visited a freestanding Sephora store several weeks ago, is that I was told by the JCP Sephora gatekeeper that anything I touched would be set aside (so basically, no touching). It’s bad enough that there are no testers to even look at (let alone touch), but not being able to touch boxes to see colors available or ingredients, etc. is a bridge too far for me. WTH?

I’m probably in the minority here but if there are no issues with touching clothing right outside the JCP Sephora bubble, I find this JCP Sephora policy to be serious overreach, Corona theater at its most extreme. I don’t think the policy is supported by science. Yes, I could be infected and sneeze my virus droplets all over surfaces, but for the most part, I think much of this is so overblown. And don’t get me started on the store policies of not trying on any clothing (although my local American Eagle and Nordstrom apparently have figured out that many people refuse to buy wrong sizing and go through a return process to buy clothing). I think if these stores, especially those like makeup stores but also clothing stores, don’t figure out a way to allow for the customer to see and engage with their products, these stores won’t survive much longer.

Really I thought they all were like that with Saran Wrap over everything?

Well face it swatching stuff there is a hotbed of germs before the virus. Safer to look at christines swatches. Hopefully IF people will comply it’s temporary. In healthcare we figure it’s here to stay so who knows.

I’ve noticed a few of my Tom Ford lipsticks have lost their vanilla scent, I don’t know that I’d say they turn, but they’re on par with the Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown lipsticks I have that all have a similar vanilla scent! Last time I checked, I pulled 50 at random, and it was around five or so that didn’t smell like vanilla for me.

Yes, I wonder if CoverFX will only be at Ulta. Honestly there are so many new brands and products out there, I don’t mind if they try not to carry the same lines. The only time it bugs me is if one is out of something, I can’t just swing by the other, but I’m doing most of my shopping online now anyway even though there are multiple Ulta and Sephora stores in my urban area. Pre-COVID makeup browsing was such a tactile experience and it’s just depressing going in there now. I wonder what the future “normal” will look like.

Is Peach Perfect officially discontinued? I have heard some kinda conflicting things, but it is on sale @ Sephora and TF’s website. I got a backup of the powder, thank goodness, but there really is nothing like it and I am heartbroken. I can’t wear Laura Mercier’s powder because something in it irritates the heck out of my eyes.

That was my feeling. My cousin who works in SiJCP said she heard it was as well. The powder is stupendously good, and said cousin says the foundation is her HG, so we are mourning together. I will have to try Charlotte Tilbury’s powder when I run out of PP I guess 🙁

I am so so tempted by the diamond and blush palette but just haven’t gone for it. It’s so pretty but I’m NC10 in Mac and I’m worried the highlights would be too dark.

It’s so hard to tell and since we currently can’t swatch anything I couldn’t even try to find it in a store. I could just buy and return it if doesn’t work but I don’t like doing that if I don’t have to.

Just put PML Realness in my cart, as that’s the only one close enough to She’s Heaven in this formula. Pink Ultraness is also whispering in my ear, but I have MAC Sí, Sí Me, so.

LOL! I totally did the same! Ordered Realness and Pink Ultraness even though I have a close dupe in NARS Stefania. Also got Profumo and Psycho Candy.

Do you have any speculation as to why the LuxeTrance line is being discontinued? It’s the only luxury level lipstick I’ve ordered multiples of, I’m such a huge fan! It seems like such a classic line.

Overall I think the cosmetics industry is taking a hit why all the sales. Nobody’s wearing much makeup nowadays with the masks. Least nobody I know.

Is Sephora planning a Fall VIB sale? I am holding out for the ND Glam palette since I’m back up to Rouge. Others in quarantine have stopped buying much; but not me! (Rolling my eyes…) Retail therapy has been a dangerous cure for boredom!
