If you're a diehard makeup lover, then the chances are that you're always down to save money at Sephora. Here you'll find a list of tried and true shopping tricks and tales straight from employees that will help you score free items and get you the most value for your dollar each and every time you venture in for another shameless makeup binge. Whether you love shopping online or prefer experiencing the cosmetic wonderland live and in person, these Sephora hacks may just get you through your next purchase with money left over.
You'll learn why you should never buy fragrance unless it's in a sampler pack and why there's no need to succumb to the temptation of travel sized impulse items as you wait in the checkout line. You'll also be armed with everything you need to know about Sephora's return policy and find out why it's not necessarily a bad thing if the item you're looking for is out of stock.
Let the savings begin.
If You Hate Something, Don't Be Afraid To Return It
If you go a little overboard in the store and get home only to discover that you've purchased an item you really don't dig, know that Sephora has a pretty generous return policy. They'll take back gently used makeup within 60 days with a receipt and will often offer store credit for items you want to return without one.
Get Samples Instead Of Travel Sizes
It may be tempting to snap up a few travel sized items while you're waiting in line at the checkout but why pay for them when you can get samples of pretty much anything in the store for free? Just ask for a small container of any item you're interested in. You can choose up to three from each department - makeup, skin care, and fragrance.
Get Free Shipping For Any Item Not In Stock
If you ever show up for a particular item and find it out of stock, rest assured that there's a silver lining. Not only can you get it shipped to you, the cost of shipping will be totally free.
