  • I know that the workers judge your makeup ability based on what you're wearing at the moment, and that makes sense. It's just frustrating when I go into makeup stores barefaced because it's a bit day and the workers there treat me like I'm stupid and never wear makeup. Now I always try and only go in when I'm wearing a full face, as this is the only time when they treat me like I know what I'm doing or leave me alone

  • I was at a Sephora one time in Australia and this 14 yr old girl was trying to return her font foundation for a new shade and thankfully they realise she had taken half out and mixed it with sunscreen. When they called her out and asked if she still wanted the new shade she said no. The whole thing was pretty funny to me but cannot believe someone could do that and not feel guilty.

  • Okay if someone pays for you to do their makeup and they leave without buying products, they aren’t obligated to buy products.

    MysvieMysvie28 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • @Maria Rita Gotcha I thought that too but like if they received the service because they already bought products, then they shouldn't have to buy more products afterward. Like I got a free makeup session in Sephora but I was not obligated to buy anything after. Also, some MUAs get commission from doing people's makeup under certain companies.

    • Mysvie The service isn’t usually paid but can sometimes have a minimum purchase, so you buy products and get the service for free. People aren’t paying artists at beauty stores to do their makeup.

  • I only have one Sephora close to me and the employees won’t talk to me unless I have a full face on and sometimes I would come without makeup and with makeup to see if they would interact, the only interact when I have makeup on to compliment me. I don’t think I have ever received help at all at Sephora and when I need help they just ignore me so I try to look around and find everything myself

  • In my country you are not able to return un sealed Beaty products so even if the person at the beauty counter sold you a miss matched foundation or something breaks you out, you’re stuck with it.

  • It annoys me that all the staff must talk to the customers browsing. Like for real if I need your help, Ill come over and ask. Especially since I am on the spectrum it makes me go mental if I just want to have a look and in an instant there is a stranger asking me how they can help. On worse days I just quickly walk away when I see them approaching. Obviously experience awful because I couldnt really see anything without worrying someone makes a small talk. Is it really necessary?

  • I walked into a Saphora once and this was when I was going through my emo phase for my makeup was like full raccoon eyes and my friend wanted me to change it meeting her parents cause her parents were very strict people and we asked one of employees if she could just do my makeup for free and she did which was pretty cool.

  • From a previous Sephora worker: 1. No, not all of the girls are just there to teach you to be only a pretty face. They're often studying to become doctors or lawyers and this is helping to pay for tuition. 2. Please stop judging our makeup, it's part of the dress code. 3. Just because he's a guy doesn't mean he doesn't know what he's doing. In fact, he more often than not has much more knowledge than the other employees. 4. Don't feel insecure around us. If you saw what we look like 10 minutes before a shift??? HAHAHA 5. Don't disrespect us. We are literally giving you products that alter your skin and can make or break your face, I wouldn't wanna start a fight if I were you. 6. PLEASE STOP ASKING US TO LOOK LIKE A BARBIE DOLL ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN 7. Makeovers tend not to be free. 8. If you are sick, do not even step near our entrance. 9.There's a 'return blacklist' where if you return too many things you'll be banned from returning.

  • The biggest thing that sucks working in beauty ( specifically hair is my store) is that people think im trying to scam them. majority of our hair products only work if you do the entire shampoo,cond, treatment etc bc they each do a different thing. but no one wants to buy the whole set and then assume im just trying to make a sale :') rip my mental health everyday lol

  • I know they said they don't judge but I have noticed very clearly I have been tailed in sephoras when I wasn't wearing makeup but they wouldnt care if I was full glam

  • I always am kind to retailers as I was in the same position as them. But the make up retailers in the Netherlands mostly are super judgy. Which ends up in me buying everything off of the internet. And not using foundation because I don't know how to match and at this point im too afraid to ask.

    • Amber Skye with ig I’m pretty sure everyone thinks they’re a makeup artist. When I started at Sephora I was a part time hairstylist and just wanted to do something different. And I was the only person in my group interview who had actually done weddings and worked with a lot of skincare. Every other girl just said they were “freelance makeup artist” but only ever really did makeup on themselves. Like my dog could say he’s a “freelance makeup artist” if you don’t do makeup on others or know customer service you aren’t a professional.

  • Once I went to Sephora (in Paris) with a bare face, to buy mascara, and a seller tried to recommend me a foundation (I don’t know about the rest of the world, but in France sometimes they do that, I mean try to sell you a specific product). I spontaneously said "no thank you, I never wear foundation!" And she STARED at me with the most INTENSE look of disbelief!! I still don’t know if I should have taken it as a compliment (that she couldn’t believe it was my natural skin) or an insult (that she couldn’t believe that with THOSE dark circles I didn’t wear foundation) 😅

  • Totally different in germany - when you see someone stealing, you ask them to go to the back with you AND you call the police if they don`t work with you PLUS these persons will be banned from the shop at least for a year. And if you destroy something on purpose or you don`t watch your child, they will make you pay. 😅 And here you can`t return something you have used just because you didn`t like it. You have 14 days to return something, it has to be new! Only by a little little chance you can return something used. AND even in the case of an allergy to a product, most times you only get a gift card in the value of your product. You barely get your money back, unless it is new, not opened, you have the recipe and come in time. 😅
