It’s tough to say if I get more excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale or the Sephora VIB Sale, but I have to say, I’m pretty pumped about the VIB Sale this year. I always take this opportunity to stock up on my staples like hairspray, brow pencils, setting spray and other products I use consistently use throughout the year.
The Sephora Sale is also a great chance to get some of your holiday shopping out of the way. While the VIB Sale is only open to Rouge members this weekend, I wanted to share what I’m planning on getting so you can start thinking about what might be on your wish list. I’ll have a makeup and beauty gift guide up next week as well once the sale is open to more Sephora shoppers.
Sephora VIB Sale 2017 Dates:
November 3-6: 20% off for VIB Rouge Members
November 10-15: 20% off for VIB Rouge & VIB, 15% off for Insiders
Fresh Sugar Lip Beauty Box: For 3 years now I have passed up on the mini Fresh Lip Treatments and regretted it come January. Not this year. I’ve gone through a few full-size ones, so I’m excited to have a variety with the minis.
Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda: Too Faced has some of the best holiday kits in my opinion. I had the Too Faced Joy to the Girls palette a few years ago and it was well used and loved, so I have high hopes for this one as well.
Olehenriksen A Brighter Truth Brightening Essentials Kit: This is where my inner coupon lady comes out: 1 oz of the Truth Serum is $48. The kit, which comes with 3 products including .5 oz of the Truth Serum, is $34. If I get two during the sale, I’m getting the same amount of serum plus 4 oz of cleanser and 2 oz of moisturizer for only $7 extra. When people ask me how to save money on makeup–this is how. Value kits and sales.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Mini – Moonstone: I’m tempted to get both Moonstone and Vanilla Quartz, but I’m going to stick to just the one for now. I just finished a sample of Moonstone that lasted a decent amount of time, so I think this mini will be more than enough and it’s more affordable than the full size.
It! Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream: My current eye cream is nearly out so I know I’ll need a new one in the next month. I still haven’t found my holy grail eye cream, so maybe this will be the one.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – Taupe: I’ve gone back and forth between the Brow Wiz and the Brow Definer, but right now I’m having a love affair with the Wiz, so I’m picking up an extra.
Bumble & Bumble Spray de Mode: I go through cans of this stuff every year. I like to get 1-2 during the sale to save a little bit of cash. I’ve been devoted to this hairspray for almost 10 years–that should be testament enough.
