What have we ever done to you? I'm fully aware that things in Canada cost more then they do in the states, due to the cost of shipping and etc. Also for the most part our dollar isn't taken into account much. At Sephora regardless if Canada's dollar is higher or lower the US dollar the all the prices on your website stay the same. Fine. There's nothing I can do about that.
But whats the deal with this recient Friends & Family (F&F) Sale? Okay, so its online, I'm not an online Sephora shopper, because theres one 10 mins from my house, so why should I pay the $9.95 for standard shipping or the $15.95 for express shipping. That is unless I spend over $120 to qualify for free shipping.
That isn't the issue though, this is (its a bunch of jibber jabber so I bolded the part that irritates me):

Why? Why couldn't this be avliable to Canadians? Even though I don't shop online, I think I would have indulged in this one.
I love Sephora. Because I have to. I have no other real option as a Canadian. Sure Mac is here but, its not like I can get a wide array brands there. There is the department store option, but its not like they carry brands like Urban Decay, Too Faced or Tarte.
I'm really glad that Shoppers Drugmart is starting to carry a wider array of higher end brands. Plus I prefer thier rewards system over Sephora's. I think if Ulta opened some stores in Canada, they'd make a killing.
Bottom line. This sucks - All I can do is haul my ass off whenever I go to the US. Which, I always plan on doing when in America. Haha. If any other Canadian girls (or guys) hate this then feel free to air your Sephora Canada grievances in the comments!
