So if you’re anything like me, you have your coins ready for the Sephora VIB sale!  The sale has already started for Rouge members.  However, VIB members, like myself, and Beauty Insiders, must wait until Friday, November 10th to shop.  The sale lasts through November 15th.  Sephora runs a bi-annual VIB sale.  It occurs once in the spring and then again in the fall (usually April and November).  Rouge and VIB members receive 20% off their purchase and Beauty Insiders receive 15% off.  Sephora provides each member with a coupon via snail mail to use in stores.  The mailer also provides a coupon code to use online. Members will also receive an email. From my understanding, the code can be used as many times as you want throughout the duration of the sale.  The only brand exclusion is ColourPop Cosmetics; also, the discount cannot be applied to gift cards, Flash shipping, or Play! by Sephora subscriptions.

Let me tell y’all, I have literally been compiling my list and adding to my cart on the Sephora app since August!  That’s how ready I am for this sale!  I want to share with you all what I am planning to get as well as give a few recommendations and tips.

Tip #1 – GO BIG!  This is the time to try that $100 moisturizer you’ve been eyeing.  $80-85 is a much better price to pay!  This sale greatly benefits higher priced items.  Yes, you can also get a brow pencil for $20, but you’re only getting $2 or less off.  I plan on trying out the Tatcha Water Cream.

Tip #2 – TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SETS!  The fall sale has to be my favorite because all of the holiday sets are out.  These sets include items in a bundle for a major deal!  Some of my favorite sets are from brands such as: Beauty Blender, Bite Beauty, Stilla, Peter Thomas Roth, and First Aid Beauty!  I also love the “Sephora Favorites” sets.  They have everything from sets with all nude lip products to perfume to hair products!  It’s a great way to get a LOT for a little and try several products without committing to the full size!  I plan on getting two sets, the Bite Beauty Agave Kisses Set and the Stilla Written in the Stars Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set.

Tip #3 – THINK CHRISTMAS GIFTS!  Do you have that friend or family member that loves all things beauty?!  Now is the perfect time to pick up their Christmas gift!

Tip #4 – STOCK UP!  If you use a certain product a lot and know you’ll be repurchasing frequently, now is the time to stock up.  Of course, take into account the expiration date and buy accordingly.  I will be stocking up on my FAVORITE night cream, the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream.

As far as other products to try, now would also be a good time to try the “hyped” brands that you might be curious about.  To name a few: Fenty Beauty, Huda Beauty, and Natasha Denona.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you’re planning to get and/or what you actually purchase!  HAPPY SHOPPING my gorgeous friends!


Till next time gorgeous,
