Sephora Sale – Tips/Wish List

Hi guys! The time is upon us — the VIB Rouge and VIB sale at Sephora! Wooo hoo! Praise Jesus!

Quick deets:

If you are a VIB Rouge member (the highest tiered member), the sale begins TODAY (November 6th) and goes until November 9th. You receive 20% off with code ROUGE20. If you’re a VIB member (base member), the sale is 20% off with code VIB20 and begins November 13th and goes until November 16th.

To find out your VIB status you can log on to and click “YOUR NAME’s Account” at the top right corner. If you see that it says “VIB Beauty Insider” you’re in! You can also ask any sales clerk in store at Sephora and they can check for you.


  • If you’re not a VIB member, ask a friend to purchase stuff for you. It’s cheating, but who cares?!
  • Stock up on things you would be repurchasing soon. For example, beauty blenders will be 20% off! If you’re due for a new one, go ahead and add it to your cart so you can save some moola!
  • Consider holiday gifts when shopping the sale. The sale has no restrictions! Go crazy!
  • Around holiday time Sephora has TONS of “sets” available for purchase. I think this is a great time to try some smaller sizes of products that may be too expensive to splurge on normally.

My Wish List/ Sale Recommendations

  • Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette $59- This is not “technically” a wish list item since I already own it, BUT…You need it too! It is amazing! Seriously…the best! The colors are SO beautiful and so smooth. Ugh. I love it. I love it!
  • Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment $105 – Yes, it’s expensive, so the 20% off totally helps. I have been dying for this for over a year now. It is supposed to plump fine lines, restore damaged skin, and reduce hyperpigmentation. I cannot WAIT to try this. I love all of their products but this one is definitely at the top of my sale wish list.
  • Sephora Favorites Skin Wonderland $68 ($228 value) – If you’re not sure what kind of skin care products you want to try, then this gift set is totally for you. It has tons of my favorite products in it, like ExfoliKate by  Kate Sommerville and the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel pads. They even have a tiny tube of the Good Genes from above. I think this would be a great little kit if you’re looking to dabble in some higher end skin care but aren’t ready to commit to anything expensive.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made Palette $35 – I have heard great things about this eye palette and of course, I have to get it. At first glance this palette looks a little disjointed, but Norvina (the daughter of Anastasia) said on her Snap Chat that the colors are meant to be viewed in groups of 4…as quads. This makes total sense to me now and I can’t wait to create some fun and easy looks out of the quads she has designed.
  • Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo $28 – I hate washing my hair so I am obsessed with dry shampoo. This one is in one of my favorite scents so of course I need to give it a go. A few beauty bloggers have been talking about this guy and saying that it is clear (no residue) and doesn’t leave your hair feeling heavy and gross like some other dry shampoos.
  • YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation $57 – I’m addicted to trying new foundations. I am excited to give this one a go because it is supposed to be illuminating and I am all about dewy and glowing skin lately. Reviews are good and at 20% off, the price is right. I am going to buy the color Beige Rose 20.
  • Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil $105 – Another expensive dude from Sunday Riley, however, I use this and I am SO impressed. More than anything, I can totally tell that this reduces the size of my pores. Not for the prego people out there because it retinol type stuff in it. Seriously though, I would be buying this today for the sale, but I’ve decided to get the Good Genes above and then ask for a refill of Luna for Christmas. I probably only have 1/4 of my bottle left and it’s giving me anxiety!
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure $35 – This is another product that I already own but need to recommend to everyone because it is THAT great. Mood Exposure is a soft plum shade and when I use it I find that I don’t even need a bronzer or contour. I tend to use this during the day because it gives some color and definition that’s perfect for the daylight hours. At night, I throw this on and add a little contour and my face looks flawless. It reminds me a lot of Nars blush in Sin. Tried and true. Awesome color.
  • Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop $38 – Best highlight EVER. I have three.
  • Beauty Blender $25 – Avoid cake face! Can never have too many of these.
  • Peter Thomas Roth Mask-a-Holic Kit $75 – I got one of these a few years ago and loved all of the tiny masks included. What a great way to try so many different products without spending an arm and a leg. Full size of each mask is usually around $58!
  • Sephora Sheet Masks Set $25 – No secrets here, I love sheet masks. With this set you can try a few plus an eye mask.

  1. So did you see that the PTR Mask set is not online? I saw your post on Friday, and then got my catalog over the weekend and saw it in there too. When I logged on to put it in my cart in prep for the VIB sale this weekend, only a set for $190 popped up. And now your link above won’t go through. Any ideas on what happened? So bummed!!
