FloridaSweety is back with a brand new video about the best way to return items at a store! I posted one of her videos previously and it got a great response as I think everyone enjoyed her as much as I did. She’s always a great inspiration to get a good conversation flowing so this morning’s Musings is all about returns!
So how do you feel about returning makeup? Do you return it or just give it to friends if you can’t use it?
The Muse isn’t as assertive as FloridaSweety sadly so most times anything I hate ends up in the bottom of my closet in the beauty graveyard. I’m also really bad with receipts and keeping them, I throw them to the bottom of my purse and end up losing them etc….Sometimes I feel comfortable returning at Sephora but most times I don’t as everyone is terribly snotty about returns. Did you every notice what a hissy fit people have at counters and Sephora when you have to do a return? Even with a receipt they get all evil and snotty! Or is that me? This is one reason I absolutely adore shopping on Sephora’s website as it’s free return postage back and no one questions you about what was wrong with the product or gives you an attitude problem about returning it.
I really never could understand why employees get so upset about returns. It’s always a rather big deal whenever I return something and five different people have to come over and look at the item, the receipt, etc….
How about you?
Are you a “return queen”?
Do you avoid returning items?
Tell the Muse!
It’s ok if you want more bang for your buck.
There, there now the Muse understands exactly about wanting more for less.
Those crazy kids at Sephora are fond of releasing palette after palette of crazy cheap makeup all housed in huge compacts. Gotta love it right? Snag the Sephora Color Play Palette for $22 USD which includes a possible arsenal of beauty love.
- 36 Eyeshadows
- 12 Lip Glosses
- 3 Blushes
- 1 Bronzer
- 3 Applicators
If you desire more for less this could be a good purchase?! Maybe? Kinda….sorta….
Loving Sephora mega palettes?
Please Jebus no more of these!?

You probably already figured this out already but if not here’s a little secret! Sephora is actually giving away free makeup when you hit 500 points in your beauty bank. Cool right?
Don’t get too excited.
Don’t get hyped now considering that the “free” makeup has been the same for many, many months now. After your bank hits 500 they’ll give you a Sephora 360� Palette. I actually said no to it for the longest time in hopes that they’d have something better pop up but I decided what the hell and included it in my latest order considering my bank is at the point where I can probably get 6 of these palettes so might as well just try it out right?
Big mistake. Totally a cheesy palette. The colors are really blah blah blah meh meh, the palette has that weird cheap makeup smell, and the lipsticks look well over their expiration date.
Props to Sephora for the cool packaging though. This houses 16 Shadows and 9 Lipsticks/Glosses plus three applicators in a cute fold out style compact that’s really tiny. I love how much product is housed in such a tiny package. Aside from the cool design though I wasn’t feeling too much love for it’s contents, rather cheap makeup overall. I placed my Urban Decay Baked Bronzer on top of the palette so you can see how small it is
Oh well nice try Sephora!
If you want it simply rack up your points to 500 and place the palette in your cart! It’ll be totaled out at checkout as 0.00!
Can we please has a new freebie soon? It’s been years now!
I shudder to think about it but this palette actually cost me $500 USD….eep! 1 point=$1 USD oh lawd! I may pass out!
Anyone grab this yet?
Tell the Muse!
Start hauling peeps!
The Muse has a deep, affectionate relationship with MAC Technakohl.
It’s possibly one of my favorite pencils from MAC and works like such a dream. But, ado, everything is not always perfect in Technakohl land.
Is it me or does it irritate the population terribly that Technakohl wears down so quickly? I actually find the product useless once it’s worn down to a stubby little smidgelet of a pencil. The sharp even edge that I loved so much is worn down within three or four uses and basically after that I only get proper use out of my Technakohl by using it on my waterline as it no longer has that sharp, precise tip that I so dearly loved lining my upper lash line with!
All in agreement say I!
But of COURSE the Muse was fairly excited to see the Sephora Brand Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner for $12 USD…ooooo cheaper than Technakohl…but guess what else?
Not only is the design pretty much the same but the dreamy, creamy formula looks the same too but guess what else!?
A built-in sharpener to keep your pencil tip extra sharp and crisp for lining and defining for months to come! Ahhh blessed relief. Question remains is the formula just as good as MAC Tecnakohl? If so, count the Muse happy that someone finally figured out a sharpener was in order!
Oh by the way….how about a smudge tip too? Sephora thought of it all with this one kids!
Good on ya Sephora! MAC failed to remember it but you didn’t!
Yay or Nay?
