About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    Emergency Question! Can I just print out that picture and show it to the Sephora clerk, or will they get suspicious? :0 Thanks, Muse!

    • Jenn

      I asked on the beauty talk and they said we will get an email as well on 11/8 and if you haven’t received the mailed card you can either print the email or show it on your phone at the event! Hope this helps you!

    Thank you for reposting this, Muse!!! I know a lot of my fellow Canucks were curious, especially after the recent sale that we weren’t able to participate in.

    I’m so happy that Sephora has extended this event to Canada!

    I have my eye on the NARS Danmari blush palette.. NOM!!!!


  • eight too? I don’t have a Sephora store in my province, but it’s super sweet of them to have this for the lucky people who do 🙂 I got a quick reply on their Facebook page about why the F&F wasn’t available online for Canadians, and the rep said it’s because of the shipping company they use to ship the products to Canadian customers. They said they’ll look into using a different company where they can apply the discount for Canadians, but I’m not sure when that will be, if they even do it.

    Thanks for the post!

    Honestly, I thought that this was over, but look what I just received as a response to my query, which I had sent before I knew that Janice had queried. I sent another e-mail basically asking wtf and will keep you all posted:

    Thank you for contacting

    We are excited to let you know that is able to ship to Canada. As a retailer of over 175 brands and 12,000 products, we are excited that our Canadian clients now have the opportunity to enjoy our wide selection and excellent service.

    Unfortunately, not all of our promotions are available to our Canadian clients. This includes the VIB event. We are sorry that we are unable to offer you the current promotion at and hope to resolve the challenges that prevent us from doing so in the near future.

    For more information on placing a order to ship to Canada, please refer to the following link:

    Yay! That means even if we don’t get the postcard, we can still get the discount through email!!! Soo happy since I don’t get any mail from them even though i’m subscribed to their catalogue, I haven’t received any physical mail from sephora at all.

  • Glenney

    I guess I fulfilled my new years resolution of not buying as much makeup since I didn’t get this invite ): I was crossing my fingers for even a BI discount… Even if it was 10% lol!

  • Shayla

    Looks like it’s for VIBs only, which is unfortunate, since I’m not one. It’s kind of unfair that they’re cutting out their regular customers.

    I just spoke to customer service on the phone (after chatting with the actual store in town here), and they have no clue about anything that might be going on regarding some kind of discount or whatever. Maybe they’re told to be mum on the subject, but according to the lady I spoke to, it’s usually near the end of November for us Canadians.

    Either way, all the stuff surrounding this just makes me want to avoid Sephora even more.

    The e-mails are flying between me and sephora: I got one saying that the e-mail that i got saying that there would not be a VIB event in Canada was correct, but that the e-mail that janice got, that there would be, was also correct. Before i could compose a reply expressisng my doubts that both of those e-mails could be true, I got the most important e-mail, the coupon. 20% off, valid on stores, bbut not on line, from 10 – 14th november. making my list and checking it twice!
