eleven // twelve // thirteen // fourteen // fifteen

There is a lot of excitement happening in the beauty community these days as Sephora VIB Sale is around the corner. In case you haven’t heard yet, starting today you can receive up to 25% off all in store and online purchases at Sephora.com website. The specific discount percentage and the day you can access the holiday sale depends on whether you are a VIB or VIB Rouge member. Read up as I’m explaining all of the details and feature some of my holy grail and recent obsession items I’ll be hunting on during the sale.

Here is a sale breakdown:

VIB ROUGE: November 4th through November 7th, receive 20% off with the code 20ROUGE

VIB: November 11th through November 14th, receive 20% off with the code 20VIB

And these are some of the tips that I recommend following during the sale:

Tip #1: Sign up to Sephora Flash subscription PRIOR to the sale to receive a free two days shipping on any order for a period of one year (you cannot use the above mentioned discount codes to sign up).

Tip #2: If you are not a VIB Rouge member yet, start working on your wish list. That way, you will not get frustrated when the sale goes live. Some of the most coveted products will sold out quickly so it’s important to have your favorites on hand when the sale goes live.

Tip #3: Make sure to check out Sephora Sale Page as the promo code is applicable to already discounted items. I would recommend checking out brush sets and your favorite items by Sephora Collection as those are often on sale. Check out the sale section a few times per day as you’ll be surprised to find goodies by such brands like Urban Decay and Kat Von D on sale!

Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations

Okay, now when you know what’s the deal with the Sephora VIB Sale Event, let’s check out what’s on my wish list. I hope those recommendations are helpful for you. Please let me know in the comments area below which of the goodies you’ll be hunting on during the sale!

Sephora VIB Sale 2016 Recommendations

Marc Jacobs Beauty Up All Night Five-Piece Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection: I’m obsessed with the red lipstick from this kit and I believe that this set is a really great deal—especially considering the 20% off discount. Also, isn’t this makeup bag adorable?

BECCA Backlight Priming Filter: I received a sample of this primer in one of my beauty boxes and I’m totally obsessed with it. Can’t wait to stock up on it!

Yves Saint Laurent Lips & Lashes Set: Before I found my current favorite mascara, I’ve been obsessed with the YSL one as it really adds volume and length to lashes, not to mention that it looks so luxurious. I also tried and loved both the concealer and lipstick (in another shade though) and I loved them too. Add a colorful makeup bag to the mix, and you’ll understand why it’s such a win-win set.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette: If you ask me to name the one and only eyeshadow palette of the year, that would be it. I use it on a daily basis and can’t get enough of those highly pigmented, long-lasting, and gorgeously colored eyeshadows. Saying so, it’s definitely one of my top recommendations for this sale.

Fresh Mini Mask Spa: I’m obsessed facial masks by Fresh and I wrote multiple times about those gorgeous products (f0r instance, in July and August favorites). If you haven’t tried any of them yet, this sale is a perfect opportunity to check them out. All items in this SPA set come in full size so it’s actually a great deal, especially when 20% off.

Sephora VIB Sale Wishlist

Below, I also provide the list of the products I haven’t tried yet, but planning on purchasing during the sale.

Sephora VIB Sale 2016 Recommendations

Ciaté London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Makeup Set: It’s just another YouTube beauty guru launch I can’t wait to check out. I feel that this set provides a great value because for the price you are not simply getting a makeup palette, but also a deluxe size mascara and a liquid lipstick, and a makeup bag.

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette – Rose Gold Edition: For starters, I love the colors and think those pink shades will look great in combination with my green eyes. I also want to support Huda who is one of the most inspiring women in business!

Kat Von D MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette: I’ve heard a lot of great reviews on this palette and I really want to check out those pigmented eye shadows that all YouTubers seems to be obsessed about.

Tatcha Bestsellers Set: I recently tested a cleansing oil (it’s so mild and effective!) by the brand and I can’t wait to check out the rest of the line.

Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil 7 Piece Body Butter Collection: I tried only one body butter from the brand and it’s so amazing! Can’t wait to check out the rest of the line!

Sephora VIB Sale Holiday Gifts

Also, here is a handy list of items that I recommend picking up as a present for the upcoming holiday season.

Sephora VIB Sale 2016 Recommendations

SEPHORA COLLECTION House of Lashes Holiday Gem Lash Set: This set is a new launch, but I have all reasons to believe that it would be as good as the rest of House of Lashes falsies (read: a-m-a-z-i-n-g!).

tarte Curl Boss Lash Essentials: I reviewed similar set but in gold last year, and I’ve been using and loving this lash curler ever since. It looks adorable and it’s very convenient to use. Also, you can’t beat this price for this cuteness!

Too Faced Totally Cute Palette: As per it’s name, this palette is super cute and I think it could be a great gift for ladies obsessed with stationery and makeup. This palette features some vivid shimmer colors and comes with a set of stickers which is a nice addition to the set.

beautyblender + Too Faced Holiday Kit: If you know someone who doesn’t use a beauty blender yet (whyyyy not?), it’s a perfect set for exploring the concept—and getting a highlighter as a bonus!

Fresh Sugar Dreams Mini Lip Trio: This set is one of the most universal gifts you can find as everybody seems to love those yummy and super moisturizing lip balms.

I hope my tips and tricks as well as the wishlist was handy for you, lovely ladies. Please let me know in the comments area below if you tried any of those products or sets—I really appreciate your opinion!

  • I haven’t been to Sephora in AGES. I forgot how much I loved that store! I have been getting more into makeup lately… Maybe it’s time to get back into my Sephora game…


    • It’s definitely the time, dear! And they are selling not only makeup, but also skincare and hair products! I hope you find something you really love at this sale!

  • Loving all of your recommendations! That Tatcha set looks so beautiful. Considering how expensive their products are I think that’d be a great way to try out a few different things from the line without spending a ton of money. I also really want to get the Brazilian Bum Bum gift set that has a couple full sized products. They smell amaaaaazing, and with the discount you end up getting a really good deal!

    • Yes, Tatcha is really pricey! But their products smell and work so perfectly!

      I looked up the Bum Bum set and it does look very interesting! Thanks for the recommendation!!
