Sephora lipsticks being discontinued - now $2.50!

They're available on line, but you can save shipping by going to the store. While supplies last!

Interesting. I was at Sephora in Century City a few days ago and there was no mention of the lipsticks being discontinued.

Thanks for the heads up. I've never used their lipsticks before. Would you describe them as being more creamy than dry? Or vice versa?

Here are some reviews that might help. I'd say more soft than dry. They do have three different textures, which is nice, including a sheer one. The one problem I see on the website is they're out of a lot of the colors already. I'm guessing the same will be true at the stores once the word's out.

Wow ... just noticed their lip pencils are down to $1 as are some eye pencils, the shimmering mascara and a few other things. The moisturizers were a really great buy - $15 down to $1 - sold out on the site, but must run to my store now.

For $2.50, you can't go wrong. I guess "satin" sounds more to my liking. Gloss is just that....too glossy. Matte sounds dry so satin seems like something in the middle. There is an enormous Sephora on 34th Street so I'll check it out tonight. Thanks again.

For me, "Satin" means not too matte and not too glossy. Anyway, I am back to Century City store tomorrow. I'll let you all know what I score.

Thanks for the tip. I picked up a bunch of lip pencils, eye pencils, etc. for about $14.00 including the shipping. Now to see if the colors as shown on screen translate to anything useable in person....

If you use the coupon code WESTERN4 at checkout you can select a 4th free sample.

My store only had the lipsticks in stock - and very limited at that. They told me all the other products that are on closeout were shipped to the warehouse so are only available online.

34th Street had plenty of lipsticks yet the store almost seemed to keep the sale a secret. No signs, nobody promoting it.

Did you go to the store in SF? If so, did you go to the Downtown or Union Street location? Is there a store down in the South Bay?

I went to Walnut Creek. There is a store at the Stanford Shopping Center.
