I live for beauty loop boxes ... We'd be due one about now if they were open. I got a gorgeous highlighter and brush as my bday gift this year

Loop boxes just dropped - all online/delivered this time <3 

Meant to be free shipping but for some reason that didn't apply to mine, all good as i needed a couple things anyway

I'm glad I waited a few days to get my Mother's day gift as it was over the $25 dollar spend.

That happened to me too. I just added a hand cream and it said you had to spend at least $25 for it to be shipped. Hardly free shipping but I guess it's because it's coming from Australia now. Need a few treats today so all good.

I dropped down to level 2, pretty proud of it! :D

Question: would you wait to put through an order until next week to get the birthday gift in the same order? My Birthday is 1.May.
Context: just had a mecca order arrive this morning, oops! You guys wanna see what I got, I can post a pic? :)

ps. Sorry I was so inactive, I was in Europe and had a bit of stress getting back home, totally got out of the habit of checking in to BeautyReview.

that would have been stressful, susilia!  

personally i'd do two, because the loop boxes will go faster this time, i think, with everyone claiming them online.

They just told me on their chat that I'll have 6 months to get my birthday present, so I won't even need to do an order next week, I can totally wait a few months! Just kidding, will stretch it out to maybe a week or so. :D

I use to always just pop into the ChCh city Mecca in my lunch breaks (quite dangerous) oh how I miss those days. I'd kill to check out the Sephora store ... Does anyone live in Auckland or been to one overseas?

Welcome back Susilia!
I have been to 2 physical Sephora stores. One was in Poland and the other in Austria. Both of them were quite small though, so it wasn't quite as exciting as I had hoped.

I went to a Sephora store in China and Gold Coast, both were pretty great! I did a Mecca order last week :( I'm not sure if will get the loop box. May have to do another one.  I'm pretty sure I can find one or two things!

I live in Auckland and have been to the Sephora here often. I've also been to Sephora Pacific Fair (Gold Coast), Sephora Pitt Street (Central Sydney), Sephora Melbourne Central, and Sephora Kalakaua and Sephora Alamoana, both Hawaii. 

I actually mystery shopped Sephora Sydney for BR in 2015 - I'll see if I can find the article if you like Jackie? 

I think Sephora isn't quite as good as it was 5 years ago but I still love it. The Auckland store is awesome but I think Sydney might be my fave out of the ones I've been to

I've never heard of beauty loop.  I did a $200 order at mecca a few weeks ago, but I don't think I "logged in" or anything.  Will they know I did that to qualify or nahhh

I can finally get one of these since I spent $300 on my last order they said I'm on L1. I need to spend another 2-3 to get to L2. Which shouldn't be a problem lol

Nicola you'll  have to sign up for loop, if your shopping has been in-store.  I think they sort you automatically if you shop online.

Info is here and the staff are great if you have questions.

both, I'm a foreign language expert Teacher Consultant, and the senior NZ rep for a large online education platform, and so I travel around NZ a lot for work, and go to Australia for meetings and conferences.

I travel overseas a lot in my break time because i work from home and am a bit of a language and culture geek so just head away every chance I get.  The last three years I've been to Samoa, Hawaii, Australia a whole lotta times, Japan, Hong Kong, Fiji and Vanuatu.  When COVID-19 hit I had travel plans in place for Singapore, Wellington, Rarotonga and Brisbane I had to cancel.

It's with Mecca. Depending on how much you spend at Mecca a year you can be on beauty loop level 1, 2 or 3 which changes which benefits you get. 4 times a year you get a little box with minis of things to try. Depending on your level you can also get free makeup applications and priority on new products etc

I'm a bit of both but have been more Sephora the last 6 months. I think I'll drop down to beauty loop 2 or even 1 later this year. I've got my Sephora 20% sale order already to go first thing tomorrow hehe

Sephora are good, and I pop in to the AKL store when I'm in the city and will go to the new branch too, but I've moved more and more to Mecca, apart from a few Sephora staples.

The Sephora app has shocking customer service, whereas Mecca are only too happy to help.  It's the customer service and loyalty programmes that make the difference for me.

Sephora staples for me are my FAB makeup melter, Sephora brand masks, KVD, Benefit, and I do love a bit of Tarte and Zoeva and Marc Jacobs etc

I haven't tried Zoeva yet, I've been so close to trying the brushes ... I even had one in my cart for tomorrow but backed out. I had my eye on the Rose Golden vol 2 eye set but thought I better try 1 or 2 before committing. Then I was learning towards trying a morphe set from Mecca AHHHHH so undecided!!

Yeah I feel the same with Sephora. I was so hyped for them opening here but they aren't a patch on the ones in the States. Meanwhile, Mecca just keeps getting better and better. There are very few brands that I use that Mecca doesn't carry now and there's not much at Sephora that really appeals (I am more into skincare than makeup)
