yeah, the prices are definitely ridiculous. there are only 2 items that i can currently see myself buying there on a regular basis and honestly, one of them i'll probably NEVER run out of, and the other i might just switch products b/c it is too expensive for me.

  1. Jack Black SPF 25 lip balm, which i adore. $6.50 a tube.
  2. Boscia blotter sheets, which are some of my favorites ever. $10 per 100-sheet pack, which does seem pricey, but is actually cheaper than Clean'n'clear (more than $5 for 50 sheets) when you do the math. in the end Mary Kay has a great product: $5 for 75 LARGE, really absorbent linen sheets. only gripe i have there is that the dispensing is neither quick nor easy.
so there you go. i've purchased other random items from Sephora... but those are the only two so far that i've not only not returned, but would by again. :angel: (you can also get Shiseido eyelash curlers there - my fave - but then those are available at Macy's & Nordstrom too, for the same price.)

i also happen to have a Shiseido sunscreen from Sephora, and 2 makeup brushes. but i may only keep one of them...

OMG... I LOVE Sephora :dance:

But the prices... yeah... OUCH! :wacko: The last time I went in there, I did some major damage... and it was mostly just skin care stuff... not even much in the way of fun new things. Luckily for me, the nearest Sephora is about 2 hours drive away... so I don't go very often. LOL!

Did you get your face done there? What fun new goodies did they have?

I already feel guilty enough coughing up 10-12 bucks for coverup! lol... i'd die if I spent anymore than 8 dollars on lipgloss

Well, Grace's chest is really boney and her legs are really skinny, too. She doesn't look like a bug, she is just as skinny as a cricket. Kinda like how Kelly Ripa is now :lol: CRICKET BUG!

Hmm I love shopping at Sephora's, but since I live in The Netherlands I can only go to one once or twice a year so it's all good...but I can spend hours looking at Sephora's online :lol: But yeah it is really pricey...

(+ Karen is the best. Period )

i buy the majority of my make up from sephora and the like. i think the only thing i have from the drugstore are a few covergirl eyeliners.

wow....lots of replies! ok so alot of mixed opinions about sephora, which in my opinion is a scam because it LOOKS like a duty-free shop but it's way more expensive!!!!!....from what i gather, if you can afford it, some stuff is ok, but as for myself i think im just gonna stop in there when i need a makeup touch-up at the mall :) I had fun trying on all the limp plumpers, made my lips kinda numb though, and tried some $60 eyeshadow that didn't impress me at all (I think it was Christian Dior). i saw some realllly young girls who had makeovers and looked like clownish cabbage patch dolls (really) and honestly i think im as good as any makeup artist so i dont trust anyone to make me up! on the other hand...someone said something about blotter sheets....do those work better than tissue paper?

i have two large train cases of make up from sephora (okay a good amount of it is actually mac). it was all worth every penny.

however i do wear drug store foundation, and my skin care routine is very inexpensive (lush, neutrogena, eucerin and a generic bp gel).

make up is the one thing i don't feel guilty about splurging on.
