4 Things You Need To Know About Sephora’s Return Policy
Sephora is a magical place filled with products that make incredible promises — but knowing a thing or two about the return policy at Sephora will save you money, prevent you from making purchase mistakes, and free you up to experiment and have fun. The mega beauty chain offers lipsticks, eye shadows, and blushes in every color of the rainbow, creams that will transform your life (or at the very least, make you look like you slept seven hours), and every single serum, spray, and cleanser you need to defeat frizz and make your curly, wavy, or pin-straight hair look salon amazing. But, while all of that experimentation can yield gorgeous results, it's inevitable: Sephora product mistakes will be made. Perhaps you purchased a glittery black lipstick, assuming it would help you fully realize your inner goth starlet. It looked amazing under the store lights — but is completely washing you out in real time. Are your only options to chuck it or find a way to make black lips work? Here are 4 things you need to know about Sephora’s return policy. 1) You'll Get A Full Refund If You Return Your Item Within 60 Days Time is of the essence when it comes to returning your Sephora purchases. If you’ve ordered an item on Sephora.com and found it to be totally wrong for you, you can return it by mail within 60 days of purchase and you’ll get a full refund on your credit or debit card or a full refund to your PayPal account. Unfortunately, if you wait to return your purchase and go over 60 days (61-90 days, to be exact), you’ll receive a full refund in the form of a store credit instead. 2) Sephora.com Purchases Can Be Returned To A Store Location If you’re like a lot of eager shoppers, you tore into your Sephora package when it arrived at your door and then totally misplaced the pre-paid return shipping label — which you’ll need if you want to return items via mail. No worries: take your purchase to a Sephora store and make sure you bring the Order summary, Return Form, and your credit card or PayPal account information with you. You will only be able to receive a full refund if you return the product within 60 days — a store credit will be issued between 61-90 days and you won’t be eligible for any kind of refund if you wait until after 90 days. 3) Opened Products Are Eligible For Return It rarely makes sense to be told by a company that opened products are ineligible for returns. After all, how are you to know that peach blush looks like death until you actually sample it? Sephora accepts opened products for returns and exchanges, as long as you have a receipt (there’s a rumor that you can return products using your ID if you’ve misplaced your receipt). Make sure you return it within 60 days for a full refund. Of course, Sephora’s great return policy doesn’t mean employees are going to be super thrilled when you return a bottle of foundation with more than half of it missing. 4) Keep Your Eye Out For Sales Let’s say you purchased a great eye shadow palette — one that cost you a quarter of your paycheck. A few days after it arrives and you’ve been using it and looking even more stunning, you stumble upon the ultimate betrayal: it’s not on sale at Sephora for $10 less! Great news: if the product goes on sale within two weeks of your purchase, you can actually call the store’s customer service line and (with proof of your purchase) they’ll refund the difference.

The Best New Sephora Beauty Launches For Fall
The Biggest Ripoff At Sephora, According To Someone Who Works There
Sephora is probably the easiest store to waste your life in. As someone who doesn't even know that much about makeup, I find myself being lured in for absolutely no reason. The aisles upon aisles of products make me feel like I need everything. But if there's one area of Sephora that you should avoid at all costs, it's the "Beauty on the Fly" section. You know, the one that wraps around the register line so you're tempted to grab that travel-size sample before you check out? Yeah, it's not worth your money. According to a Sephora employee, "There are easily over a hundred travel size items at my Sephora store, and nearly every one is a total rip-off." She compared the ounces vs. price of the full-size and travel-size Alterna Bamboo Volume 48-hour Sustainable Volume Spray and found that it is, in fact, a total ripoff. Apparently, the full-size costs $5.95 per ounce, while the travel size is $11.76 per ounce! If you're really desperate to sample a travel size product, look for the full-size version in-store--you can ask for a free sample. "As a Sephora associate, I was trained to ask customers if they’d like to take home a sample of any product, so don’t be shy about asking. There is no purchase required. Choose up to three samples per world: color (makeup), skincare and fragrance."

The Worst Things To Buy At Sephora, According To Someone Who Works There
Sephora never lets us down. From shelves and shelves of endless makeup products, sometimes we genuinely feel like we're in beauty heaven when we walk through those doors. When you look at all of the different options of eyeshadow, liners, lipsticks, foundations - we could go on forever - don't you feel like you need it all?! Like where do you even start to narrow down what works best for you? Well, we thought it would be helpful to know what not to even bother looking at - what are the overrated and underwhelming products at Sephora? And we didn't want just anybody's opinion... we found out what NOT to buy at Sephora from an actual employee! So what did she recommend - rather, not recommend?! "Smashbox is very 'meh' to me" she says. Apparently, this brand just doesn't do it for her, so maybe re-think it next time you're shopping. "NARS also makes some hit and miss products. (Their eyeshadows are often chalky.)" Better keep this in mind next time you're shopping for a new eyeshadow. "Origins has never inspired me" and "I think a lot of luxury brands struggle to justify their costs (Dior, YSL, Guerlain, etc)." Good to know! And last, she explains, "You know, now that I think about it, people think Bare Minerals is God's gift to skin, and it's just not. But people are LOYAL to that brand. It amazes me how much we sell." So next time your friend raves about her Bare Minerals foundation, you know better! For more of her best and worst picks from Sephora, check out the full interview on Racked.

The One Brand You’re Not Shopping At Sephora–But Totally Should
Sephora is known for carrying almost every makeup brand under the sun. However, most people overlook Sephora's own brand, Sephora Collection, in favor of name brands. Big mistake. Sephora Collection offers some heavy hitters that are a must-have in any beauty girl's makeup bag. Not only are these products amazing, but they are almost half the price of other similar products in the store. Here's my breakdown the best products from Sephora Collection: Citrus Brush Cleaner ($11.50): I cannot live without this brush cleaner. I order multiple bottles at a time. It's a quick drying spray that swiftly removes product from your brushes. All you need to do is spritz the product a few times on the bristles and wipe the brush off on a tissue. Triple Action Cleansing Water ($12): This is another one of my all-time favorites. This cleansing water is comparable to more expensive brands and it is just as good. I use it every night to take off my makeup Rouge Cream Lipstick ($12.50): Never spend money on expensive lipsticks again. Sephora's Rouge Cream Lipstick has a creamy, soft texture that's extremely comfortable on the lips. It also comes in every color you can imagine. Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner ($12): This is a solid eyeliner. It gets the job done and doesn't cost a fortune. It's easy to apply and doesn't budge. Bonus: it has a built in sharpener. Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover ($11): This makeup remover breaks down everything, even waterproof makeup. The texture is oily so I suggest using a cleanser afterwards. It's also great for people with sensitive eyes. Cream Lip Stain ($14): This lip stain kicks butt. It has major staying power without being too drying. When you apply it, it has a creamy texture. But then it turns into a silky stain. The Weekender Makeup Case ($38): This versatile makeup case is perfect for traveling (especially if you're a beauty hoarder). It holds a ton of product and as a special section for your makeup brushes. Sheet Masks ($6): Sephora offers a variety of cheap, individual sheet masks that should not be over looked. Each mask is infused with a different active ingredient intended to give your skin a boost. My personal favorite is Great Tea Mask ($6) which soothes the skin and reduces the appearance of breakouts. Any Sephora Favorites Set: These are the BEST deal at Sephora. Each Sephora Favorites Set features of combination of sample and full-sized products from all different brands. It's a great way to try new products. I suggest scooping up their new Chic It Easy ($49) set which features a full-sized Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat (which costs $42 regularly). Love Sephora?

10 Sweatproof Beauty Products That You Need To Survive Summer’s Hottest Days
It's June, and that means that it is about to get HOT. Really Hot. And while the heat might cause us to break out our sleeveless tops and shorts, it also causes us to break out in a sweat. Whether you're commuting, taking the dog for a walk, or sitting outside at brunch, you will be sweating during the upcoming months. We already know that sweat causes all kinds of crazy beauty problems like greasy, frizzy hair and nasty zits, but sweat also causes your makeup to run. I know you're thinking, "Great, just one more thing to worry about," but don't stress, runny makeup shouldn't be a huge problem. There are tons of products out there that will help to keep your makeup intact, even on the hottest days, and we've found ten of the best. So unless you want to be known as "the girl who's face is dripping off," you should definitely check out all of the sweatproof beauty products in our slideshow. Trust me, you're going to need them.

Sephora’s One-Time Use Nail Polish Pods Are Here! Go Crazy Trying All 24 Colors
When I first found out about this polish set, I knew it would be a game changer. It seems like every time I go to the drugstore or beauty supply store, I end up leaving with some kind of nail polish--and I know you do too. Once I get it home, I'm soooo excited to use the "super cute" new color that I paint my nails immediately. But after the initial excitment is over, my new nail polish sits in my drawer untouched. It seems like the gals over at Formula X and Sephora must have the same problem, since they created the Press Pods ($39) collection. This collection contains 24 one-time-use pods of Formula X's bestselling shades, which is awesome because it allows polish lovers, like myself, to try colors and find their favorites before they commit to buying full-sized bottles. Each pod has just enough polish to give yourself a two-coat mani and pedi and has a built-in brush. By purchasing this collection, you can paint your nails 24 times for $39, which comes out to about $1.62 for each mani pedi. If that's not a bargain, I don't know what is. With nail polish prices as high as $15 a bottle, and rising salon prices, this collection is a no brainer. So head over to Sephora and check it out. You won't be disappointed.
