    I placed an order and used the code for the Tom Ford Lipstick gwp. They sent an email later saying that it was out of stock. I emailed them and they credited my account with points, which was appreciated; however I was excited to try that lippie. The code is still showing as active (browsing the site, text check out). Do you think it’s now back in stock or have they not deactivated it on their end?

    • Kathy says:

      As long as you can add it to your cart and checkout with it, then it should be back in stock, that’s what I think!

  3. imchachagirl says:

    FYI: The NARS orgasm lipstick GWP cam in a deluxe size (1.7 g) instead of 3.5 g as advertised!

  4. BIB says:

    In my last 2 Sephora orders, they FAILED to include any of the 3 samples! So I’m missing 6 samples! And I had chosen good samples, including a Jo Malone fragrance vial! They did it on purpose!

    • Kathy says:

      It happened to me also! I highly recommend you contact CS, they funded me 100 points for the missing 3 samples.

          • BIB says:

            Not acceptable! One of the missing samples I requested was a Jo Malone fragrance, and I was really looking forward to trying that. I haven’t seen Jo Malone in my local store, so I can’t request that in a store. Sephora failed to include samples in not just one, but TWO of my orders – my last two orders.

          • Kathy says:

            Agree. We spend time to decide what to choose then come nothing. Try contact them, most likely they will fund you 100 pts for 3 missing samples. To me, 100 pts is better than 3 free foil samples.

          • BIB says:

            I tend to request perfume vials – they can be used multiple times, unlike sample packets. And among those 6 missing samples, several were perfume vials. Perfumes are the most valuable of the 3 samples we can request because they can be covered/uncovered and used multiple times. Also, I like fragrances. I do not find the reward points that useful. For a year, I’ve kept checking back on the rewards, and they almost never have anything I like! And the good stuff is always sold out very quickly. Yes, I’ve contacted them for points to make up for the missing samples, but the points are blah for me. I’d much rather get the samples I’ve requested, which tend to be perfume vials.

          • Kathy says:

            Yeah, I do the same thing and I feel your frustration! If you follow my blog and read my purchase posts, you know I always choose fragrance samplers. I like to collect them!

    • Tammy says:

      Hey BIB,
      Nordstrom’s is really great about ensuring you get the samples that you requested. I don’t think there’s ever been an instance where they’ve substituted my order. I’ve seen Jo Malone as a choice often. Just fyi, hope it helps. Their beauty section does have cheap filler items, travel size items that you could buy if you do see some interesting samples. It’s what I do.

  5. Deanna M says:

    Has anyone else noticed that Sephora’s processing time is painfully slow lately? I saw the message at check out that all orders may be delayed by 3-4 business days (which seems odd as it’s not Christmas time or anything) but I’ve had orders take up to a week and a half to ship, and I have flash shipping. I did contact customer service, but I guess that’s not unusual for their current processing time.

    • Kathy says:

      I saw that message too. A week and half is long with flash 2 days, but I doubt they have more orders now than in nov/dec.

  6. R says:

    I used promo ‘elephant’ and only received .17 oz/5 ml sample, not the .27 oz/8 ml sample you received. Mine’s only slightly more than ½ the value and trial uses of the one you received. I’m so disappointed and would have chosen a different promo if I knew it would be that small.

  7. Tiffany says:

    How do I get the Marc Jacobs Setting Spray? I’m on the App but when I click add promo nothing comes up? How do I get it added if there’s no promo code?

  8. Gisele Gerry says:

    I just contacted Customer Service regarding the EYEPICK2 promo code. They told me they had recently been informed of the glitch and while unfortunately couldn’t provide an immediate fix, they did offer me the option to still pick one of the 2 items included in the promo (eye cream OR concealer) and I received 100 Beauty Bank Points in lieu of the additional item. Just FYI!

  9. Centaur says:

    Thanks for keeping this page up to date; I check it all the time! Another great sale deal going on right now is that you can pick up Kevyn Aucoin’s 4-in-1 contour palette for only $36, regularly $58. I think this is a great deal if you look his products!

  10. Rebecca says:

    Just wanted to thank you for your dedication to this page and for keeping us updated on the best Sephora deals! Literally check this everyday!

    • Kathy says:

      check out my screenshot of the cart. All you need to do is to add another 4 bottles of polish + 1 set(include 1 bottle in shade Blast Off). Select the shades in that ‘Formula X
      5-Piece Customizable Nail Polish Collection’ page! Total 5 bottles for $5. It seems like they are selling out fast, some shades are gone. You have to add 4 bottles to get $20.5 discount!

      • sarah says:

        Thanks! I finally figured it out but most colors were gone 🙁 still a steal regardless so I ended up ordering. I tried to order another set today because I noticed that they updated the colors BUT the promotional gift no longer applies! because its not a $25 purchase 🙁 I guess the gig is up and Sephora figured out the bug.

        • Jess M says:

          I placed three orders between noon-2 pm today (8/4) and was able to use the $25 promo codes! But when I saw your update that they added the red polish, about 45 min ago, I went to place another order and it’s not working. So, yeah, I guess Sephora caught on. Bummer!

  11. Leah says:

    I just called Sephora and they gave me a store credit of $5. It’s still on their Mobile site on the front page saying $27 then when you click on it the price changes to $32. I was on hold for 20 minutes but it was the principal of it all.

  12. Cindy says:

    For the new Sephora VIB code, only two items come up for me Is everything else sold out? I am vibr. Thanks

    • Kathy says:

      Yep, they are sold out if they don’t show up in the pop-up window. 🙁

      A good promo like that, things are sold out fast!

  13. Trang says:

    Kathy! Just have to thank u for all ur hard work…I can imagine all the time it takes u to post deals. I love beauty n I always find the best deals thru u…u are so appreciated! Just wanted to let u know ??

  14. Cindy says:

    For the Amex deal, do we first have to enable something in our Amex account? Because I don’t see anything in my Amex account. Also, for the Kroger deal, I don’t see Gift Cards on the left side bar at the coupon link you posted. Would like to do both of these deals if possible. Need help! Thanks!

    • Kathy says:

      Hi Cindy,

      The Kroger offer: It seems like they pull off all the gift cards offer online there. But it won’t hurt if you give them a call or just ask the CS while you are there to see if this deal is still valid.

      The AMEX offer:

      1. Login you AMEX account,
      2. On the homepage, scroll down to find the ‘Amex Offers & Benefits’,
      3. Find the offer you like, then click ‘Add to card’
      4. Spend the amount as required, then you will get the cash back automatically back to your AMEX card, usually, they send you an email confirmation for that.

      Not every account will get the same offers! So, don’t feel bad if there is no Staples offer in your account.

      Hope it helps!


  15. Jacki says:

    Wow Sephora has dior, bb invisible oil (my favorite!!!) and lancer deluxe samples.. They are on fire!! And of course 2 days after I order something haha

    • Kathy says:

      Awesome! It seems egift card works. It’s probably the staples egift card is excluded in this offer, my guess.

      • Sarah says:

        Yes it’s a really great deal! I purchased through ebates which gave me 2% cash back to shop at Staples, plus Sephora ebates is giving 8% cash back ( My ebates link here: ) so you end up saving 35% total which is amazing. First time commenting btw…I have been enjoying your blog for awhile now 🙂 you are doing an amazing job!

    • Cindy says:

      Did it automatically come through just by using your Amex? Or did you have to do something at the Amex site first? Thank you!

  16. Isu says:

    Hi. Did you see the zoya nail polish offer? With $30 nail trio purchase you can get 2 more nail trios for free with code FLING

  17. Jasmine says:

    V436CB gives 10% off to VIB and Rouge. I don’t know how long it will be live, but it works today! =)

    • Kathy says:

      Thanks Jasmine! I have this code on my Sephora post. This is a generic code and always available. VIB/R can use one time per calendar year, or within 30 days after your VIB/R qualification.

      Last year 2015, VIB/R got 15% off during the mid of April.

  18. Jinytte says:

    Hello Kathy,

    Thanks for always posting these offers!

    I think the VIB/Rouge VIBLOVEU Bobby Brown sets are all gone. When I tried using it earlier it said expired or OOS.

    Also the Clinique Pink Honey has been OOS for weeks already. They keep picturing it when you use the code YOUYEAR but when you try to add it, the message will say it’s out of stock.

    So dissapointed, qualified for VIB today but no Bobby Brown for me. 🙁

    • Kathy says:

      Thank U! I will update the post.

      And don’t worry that Bobby Brown set is gone, there always will be something better come out sooner or later.

  19. zombiemetroant says:

    I’ve noticed that my Sephora app usually has slight variations from the website. For example, they have a promo code GETGLOW for a deluxe Brightening Mask Mini tube from Skin Inc. but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that online.

    Also, at chekout, they still have the 550 PT Reward: Night Out Necessities bag from a couple weeks ago and last month they still had the Benefit Super Stars box.

    I think it’s great to have other options 😉

    p.s. Love your site!!!

    • Kathy says:

      Oh yeah, yr comment reminds me to check the mobile offer on the Sphora app, I got to update the post again! Sephora wants you to use the app more often so they give you some APP exclusive offers, you can use these promos on your desktop too! Also, as I know, some mobile offers vary by the location, but everyone can use the codes.

      Thank U! I’m happy to hear you guys love my site!

  20. gottfriedgrau says:

    Hi Kathy- Do you have a link to the printable version of the Too Faced/ JC Penney coupon by chance? I can’t find one. I’m VIB Rouge but they didn’t even send it to me 🙁 ty!
