How To Shop The Sephora VIB SALE

First can we start off by saying for rouge members 20% is not really a significant savings. I’m hoping that Sephora follows suit as they did last year where they offered various sale opportunities for it’s members. These items that the little saving is being attached to adds up extremely quickly. With that being said, I’m strictly trying to keep my list to products that are tried and true for me. I’m also looking to test out a few lower priced products as well.

First things first

Rouge: Rouge Members will be rewarded with 20% from April 26-May 6 Code: HEYROUGE As with most of the Sephora Sales- on the first day April 26, 2019 Rouge Members are allowed to bring a friend in store to extend the 20% off discount.

VIB: VIB Members will be rewarded with 15% off from May 2-May 6

Insider: Inside Members will be rewarded with 10% off from May 2-May 6

The promotion is valid on purchases made in Sephora stores and online in the U.S. and Canada areas. The discount is not valid on The Ordinary & MAC Cosmetics. The limitations include 1 Dyson product, 3 Drunk Elephant items, 3 Tatcha items, 5 Morphe items per transaction.

TIP: If you’re planning on purchasing more than $75 in store, you may want to set up ahead of time to get a full perk facial. Keep in mind Sephora locations will be hectic during these times. But scheduling ahead of time will give you a better chance will help you maximize you’re spending of getting a little something extra for yourself.

TIP: The sale falls extremely close to Mother’s Day- this would be an excellent opportunity to use the extra savings to apply it to a gift!

Sephora Sale Wish List

son and park beauty water $30

This was on my list- but I recently purchased it from a retailer overseas. It’s also has been out of stock on the Sephora website for the past couple of weeks. If you’re interested in seeing why I’m so obsessed with this magical water/toner, please check out my previous review here. (Further Reading: How To Use Toner)


Supergoop- Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 $32

I’ve been testing out this sunscreen for the past couple of weeks. I love how light weight this is. I’m happy to say it doesn't leave me looking shiny and my make-up applies well over it. My plan is to use the Unseen as my base sunscreen in the morning and then touching up throughout the day with the Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 $28.


Dior Lip Glow $34

I’ve been purchasing the Dior Lip Glows for years. I treat myself to one yearly and now I only purchase them during the sales. Yes, these lip glows are pricey, but I love the formula and how my lips feel after using them. I’ve purchased the Coral shade several times and the Berry color once. At the current point I’m undecided as to which color I plan on purchasing during the sale. However, I do know that I will not be purchasing any of the matte or shimmer formulas.


Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3 $28

This is another product that I’ve been using for months. I pretty use it every other week. It’s not a deep conditioner, but more like a treatment for your hair that helps repair hair bonds. The bottle is only 3 ounces, therefore I tend to sleep with the treatment in my hair overnight to maximize it’s full potential. If you’re suffering from color treated, relaxed or any other damage to your hair, I would highly recommend trying out this gem.

Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil $16

This will be my first time purchasing the Ouai Rose Hair & body oil. I’ve tried it out a few times and I really like it. I like that the oil is light weight enough to use on my hair when my hair is straight along with it being curly. The oil is highly scented and absorbs into the skin well. For now, I’ll be purchasing the 1.5 ounce mini size for $16. The mini would also be great for travel as it’s multi-functional.


Fenty Beauty by Rihanna- Lil Bronze Duo $24

I’ve never tried any of the Match Stix’s from the Fenty Collection. The bronzer shade in the duo comes in the color Carmel Cutie. I’m hoping that it’ll match me well. If it doesn't, I likely return this set to get the deeper shade of the bronzer only in Coco Naughty.

Caramel Cutie & Sinamon:
- Mini Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer in Caramel Cutie
- Mini Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Sinamon
