Beauty News: Sephora Rewards is Getting a(nother) Makeover

  I’ll come right out and say it – for the past few years, the Sephora rewards program has been pretty lackluster. I don’t really know how to feel about that. On the one hand, they’re a business and they don’t owe me anything extra for shopping there. But on the other hand, they’ve created a rewards program to give me an incentive to shop there versus other stores. And well, it’s only partially working.  I guess they’re listening, because  ...

New In Beauty: Clarisonic Mia Smart

  Now, you guys know how much I love my Clarisonic brushes. It didn’t start off that way when I originally tried the original Mia years ago – I thought it was a little too harsh for my skin, and didn’t end up using it much.

Sephora is stepping up their brand game

I wouldn’t normally make a whole post about a store carrying new brands (yawn) but I’m making an exception in this case. Earlier today I was puttering around the internet, as you do on Sundays. The image above was in my email, and it stopped me in my tracks. WHAT? I’ve been waiting for this day for years. I halfway thought I was dreaming, but I got a confirmation for the order I placed within about two minutes of seeing the email, so I guess this is really happening. It  ...
