Just hang on tight to your credit card. I can get so out of control in that store. Unfortunately for me, I have one only 5 minutes away from where I work. Shock I like having their artist to give me a new make up session. Just to see what's out there and I usually end up buying it all.

There are too many items to even begin a list. Smile My best advice is to give yourself a lot of time in Sephora; you'll be mad at yourself if you leave and then remember something that you were dying to try. Believe me, once you walk in there, any plan of attack that you had will be forgotten. Wink

But I do have a request -- if you happen to see the new LaVanila fragrances, please try one out and report back with your opinion. Very Happy

Ooooo, my favorite store. I go every other weekend! Oh, the makeup, the skincare, they have everything! I just received a package today from Sephora. I ordered Laura Geller Spackle Primer, Lip & Eye Spackle and Duo Concealer, also got Fusion Beauty Glow Fusion self-tanner. They don't sell Laura Geller in their store so I had to order through their website.

I don't know what to suggest to you since EDS does carry a lot of the items they have at Sephora.

Definitely smell/test the Carol's Daughter products. The Almond Cookie body cream smells soooooo delicious!

Hit them up for samples. I went there recently with a friend and they can be stingy. I ended up buying about $100 worth of products so it wasn't like I was just scamming them for freebies.

Definitely check out the beauty tools section as you may find hard-to-find things there. You may want to pick up the Tarte eyelash curler that Carekate recommends. I did and I love it Very Happy I also am loving the Decleor Aromessence Neroli sample (for all skin types) -- they were out of Angelique (dry skin). I bought Caudalie's new Moisturizing Concentrate and like it as well as a small Beauty Elixir. As you can tell, I like aromatherapy based products Exclamation

If you're going to be in the area for more then one day, go in and get a ton of samples. They'll give you samples of everything. Even if you only have one night to use them, it will give you a little perspective.
If you're only going to be near it for one day, go in and look, smell and feel everything, then go have a cup of tea. If it's a big Sephora, it can be overwhelming. Take a deep breath and go back in....

I love Sephora. It's like being in a candy store. Which reminds me, I have a gift card to use up. Laughing

If you have any interest in MD Forumulations products(which EDS carries, but doesn't sell in Canada), they are available at Sephora!

sephora is not as generous with giving gifts, even they let u try alot. I am still sticking with macy's or bloomingdale during beauty sale. Or, another alternative is to get gift card first from ebay.

I've got the straight-up vanilla one -- the scent is divine (the other two were too "flowery" for me -- gave me a perfume migraine), but I'm not sure it's worth the money for the alleged "skin friendly" ingredients -- I personally don't see any benefits to my skin when I'm wearing the LaVanilla as opposed to any other scent and am inclined to think the hype over the botanicals and anti-oxidants is a bunch of hooey....

Which is ironic, because they get pissy if you buy a bunch of stuff and end up returning it all because it didn't work for you! At which time, the manager or SA will say "next time, ask for samples first...." Mad
