I love Sephora. Seriously, it truly is the best place to get all your fav brands in one place. Best part? Bobbi Brown at Sephora now too. Dood, brilliance. I was actually gagging over the array of Bobbi at Downtown Disney in California this weekend when one of the artists there, Vanessa, came over to say “hey aren’t you…” Shout out to Vanessa for being so sweet to talk to but she unexpectedly surprised me with the “What are your favorite products?” question…man, that’s impossible to answer sometimes when you’re as addicted to makeup as I am.
Speaking of my love of Sephora…it doesn’t always extend to their color cosmetics. I’ve had some hit or miss product mishaps with their house brand but sometimes you can really grab the jackpot with some of their makeup. Take for example the Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette, brilliance in my humblest, have you tried?
If that nude, natural palette wasn’t your bag no worries…a new Moonshadow Palette features shades for the perfect smoky eye.
This info isn’t confirmed as of yet but you can visit www.sephora.com/friends and hopefully updated info will become available soon!
Thanks to my reader chibi today for giving us early deets on the Sephora Friends and Family 2011 Event.
The offer kinda sorta makes me cry this year as it’s a one time use code you can use. Where as in the past Sephora offered a universal code (ie FF2010, FF2009, etc..) this year you have to visit the site between October 20th thru November 2nd for a one time use code.
In years past I’d do an order for myself followed up by an order for Friends and Family. And heck sometimes I’d do a third order if something popped up that I wanted or something I forgot in my first order, etc….limiting me to a single code is going to really kill my joy.
Chibi also shares that the in store event will not be via coupon. Instead a photo ID and your physical BI card will have to brought to the store to get the discount.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international campaign that takes place every October. This month raises awareness about Breast Cancer and helps educate us about the cause, prevention, treatment, and cure.
Hopefully you’ve taken some time out to donate to your favorite charity! If you haven’t chosen a charity you can always indulge in beauty favorites from various brands which offer proceeds of their sales to various charities.
This year, Sephora has created a range of beauty products which donates some proceeds of the sale of each item to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Sephora.com really needs a wish list feature…or even a recommendation one. Let’s not get too technical thought, a wish list to start with is fine by me!
Sadly, it’s not available as of yet on their website but maybe in the future. Until that time you can download and install the Amazon.com Wish List Plugin which allows you to use your Amazon Wish List on any retail site!
This cool plugin allows you to add a little “Amazon” Icon to your browser which when clicked adds items to your Amazon Wish List. It can be used on any retail site across the web so you can compile lists for all your favorite sites including Sephora.com
I labeled my new wish list “Beauty Wants” and simply click the Amazon button to add items onto the list.
Until Sephora adds in a wish list feature, this is the next best thing! Get the plugin at Amazon.com
Note: I wasn’t taking Sephora’s Gift Registry into consideration with this post. I found it easier to use Amazon’s plugin since I spend so much time on the site! Sephora does allow you add items to your shopping cart and to keep them there however if you’re checking out and have a large cart you have to remove those items if you are not planning to buy them so this isn’t really a solution for a wish list.
I have a thing about Sephora Catalogs…
I think I’ve documented pretty much every one I’ve gotten since I started Musings of a Muse. Here’s an archive of some of those catalogs for your viewing pleasure! Just click the links and you’ll be magically transports to the catalog of your choice.
