Sephora shipping.. does it take long?

I ordered something on December 6th as a Christmas gift. It still hasn't arrived. I just placed another order for something else as a Christmas gift, and i'm worried it won't arrive. Is this a regular thing with Sephora?

My daughter's item arrived in about a week and a half. It might be a little slower getting close to Christmas due to volumes.

Its only been 5 days. I'm sure it will arrive soon. Is there tracking info?

Here's the problem. I paid express shipping. It says it's "en route" and that's it. No destination or location it's currently at. My latest purchase they wouldn't allow me to do Express shipping (the one I ordered today) which has got me a bit concerned. Usually i'm pretty easy about it, but i'd like to just get an idea of what others have had when it came to Sephora.

I wouldn't worry, their express shipping is 3-8 business days

Okay, thanks for your help. I guess i'm used to amazon.ca, walmart, futureshop, and when you do express shipping it arrives a day or two later.

Sephora orders ship from the US so it takes a bit longer then something shipped from Canada.

My last order I placed on Nov 4 and received Nov 11 with standard shipping.

UGH, that's what I just realized. Why would they ship it from USA? if I had known that I would have bought it in store. It's a bit of a pain. waiting on one more Christmas present still I need by December 24th.

Still waiting, and it's absolutely frozen. Haven't had mail delivery Thursday or Friday. Way to disappoint your girlfriend beachdude.

In the past I've allotted 10 days or so for Sephora shipping, but my past two orders have been extremely fast. I ordered around the first of December and had it in 5 days or so... then on December 17 and it was delivered on December 19 -- so that was pretty amazing.

I don't know where it shipped from - I only have the Borderfree tracking info here.

Item arrived today. I actually went to 4 different malls yesterday, left work early, spent about 6 hours driving through black outs and at the last store i'm told the item I was looking for was an "online exclusive"

It all worked out in the end, but gave me some much un needed stress.
