Oooohhhh where to begin :P
First of all I’m from Portugal. Well in August, when Sephora was on Sale, I bought I couple of things, a Lip pencil from Sephora no.407, a Sephora long lasting eye-liner no.01 black, and a Bourjois eye pencil Khôl & Contour XL in Black. When I went to pay, the lady asked me if I wanted to do the Sephora costumer card, I was like:
-Aaahhhhmmm what do I need to do? – thinking I might have to pay for it or something.
Sephora Lady – Oh, you just need to fill in this paper, name, ID, address, phone number and email if you have.
So while I was filling in the form, and she was charging the things that I bought, she asked me what perfume did I like…
-Ahhhh ahm ahmm , well I like the Britney Spears one, Fantasy…
S.Lady – Huum I don’t have that one, you like sweet perfumes is it?
Me - Yeah.
S.Lady - Okei, I have Lacoste’s Touch of Pink…
Me – hum okei (I don’t think I ever smelled that perfume before, but some girls that I know like, me? Meh)
The Lady gave me two samples of the perfume (one of them I gave it to my mother). I filled in the form, gave it to her, and she give me a paper card, she says that it was a temporary card, till the real one comes, but I could use that one with no problems. So the thing with the Sephora Card, is:
· Every time you buy something in Sephora, and you use your card, every 1€ = 1 point, and when you get to 150 points, you get a 10% off when you buy something and use that discount.
· And another thing, I guess you get a present on your birthday. (I don’t know if they send something to you, or you go and pick at store).
So yeah, that was it for that day. Pass on to the beginning of September, and I saw on the Portuguese Sephora’s Facebook page that they created a Portuguese Twitter account, so since I have a Twitter account, I went there and clicked to Follow them. On the next day I saw on the Sephora’s PT facebook page, that the first 10 followers of the Sephora’s Twitter page, were getting a gift, a cream for the face hihi ^.^ So I sent my info to them, so that they could send me the cream, and a few days later I got it! Plus it came with a “Beauty Salon” let’s call it voucher, where I can get a free makeup session, and learn some stuff about makeup.
The envolope The letter
The "Beauty Salon" voucher
Then in October, I got in the mail, my Sephora card, I was getting kinda worried, ‘cause the Lady told me it would take about 4 weeks, and it took 8 weeks :S anyways, I got it, and it came with, another “voucher” for me to pick up a free welcome gift, a little purse with a very little Kabuki brush.
Then, right on the next day I got another thing from Sephora in the mail XD this time I got the 10% off voucher haha.
So on a Saturday morning, I went to the nearest Sephora shop to me, got there, and explained to the guy at the counter what was I there to do. Get the Kabuki brush, told him that I won a cream from Sephora through Twitter so I also got a voucher for the “Beauty Salon” and that I wanted to “do my face” lol, and that I also had the 10%off voucher to use in case I buy anything.
So I gave him, the Kabuki and “Beauty Salon” vouchers, he gave me the little purse with the little Kabuki in it, and then he stared at the “Beauty Salon” voucher, I could see on his face he didn’t knew what was that about, and that he never saw something like that. So I asked him, “do you need to see the letter that came with it?”, which he kinda ignored me, so I took the letter of my bag, and showed it to him, and he was like;
-“Ooooohh you won the Twitter contest, aahhh okei, congrats.”
Me- Yeaaahhh, thanks ^^.
So the guy went to talk to another Lady, responsible for the makeup shenanigans, and they both come back, and the Lady says that, due to the low staff that they have (there was only 3 people working there) it would be better to book the makeup session (even though on the voucher says NO BOOKING NEED IT!), so I told her to forget it, just because I wanted to do it on that day ‘cause I was going out that night, so it would be worth it, and at the time I didn’t remembered that I could book it for Halloween’s day (that’s what I’m gonna try and do tomorrow). So I just end it up walking around the store, see if I found anything I wanted to purchase. So I bought a brush from Sephora, a smudge brush no.14, to help me with smoky looks; a pencil sharpener, because one that I bought during the summer the whole was too big for the pencil that I wanted to sharp; and a nano eye pencil from Sephora in colour plum no.19. And of course I used my 10% off voucher and used the Sephora card, so that I can add new points hehe.
So that’s it, it almost felt like Christmas haha.
