Sephora Love/Hate

Yes, I'm feeling mixed emotions...I know I'm not the only one who's disappointed this year with Sephora's Friends & Family Sale, right?

What's up with all the fine print and limitations?

* Offer valid 10/20/11 through 11/2/11 at 11:59 pm PST/PDT with any merchandise order on Online promo code cannot be used in retail stores or sephora inside jcpenney. Enter your unique promotion code during checkout to receive 20% off your entire online merchandise purchase. Promo code may be only be used once, is non-transferable, is not valid on previous purchases, on Canadian online purchases, nor with the purchase of eGift certificates or gift cards. Only one promo code per email address and only five email addresses per computer. [and so forth, blah blah.]

The funny thing is...I think I only placed one order of two items last year, so why does this bother me?  But I just HATE being told all these restrictions, don't you agree?  And I'd feel more comfortable and less pressured to make smaller orders over the time frame, especially since there are things I would like to check out in person first (and since we can't just purchase in store, hmph).

That being said...haha here's what I'm currently eying on the site.  Obviously I'm not going to get everything because, that'd be like...a car payment or a month's rent, but it makes me feel better just being able to look it all on one page.

So, what are your lists looking like??


  1. I want the G spot! And yeah what's with the restrictions? >_< I'm excited though :D

  2. I was slightly disappointed with the restrictions on the f&f sale this year...and what's up with not being able to stack codes like we used to?!? I'm debating even placing a 2nd order to get my free moisturizer from their beauty roulette b/c the item(s) I intended to get are out of stock/not in stock yet =T 

    ♥ your wishlist! Lover is a great matte blush - I ended up using it a bunch over the summer! lol and I think everyone is getting something from Caudalie this year =P
