The most wonderful time of the year is upon us for all Sephora Beauty Insiders! The Sephora VIB Sale! The VIB sale usually happens twice a year —once in the spring and once in the fall. All levels of beauty insiders receive a discount code/card to be used for one weekend only. If you’re a shopper at Sephora you know how huge this is! NOTHING EVER goes on sale at Sephora. It’s not like Ulta at all where they do fun “21 Days of Beauty” or gifts with purchase. Sephora pretty much takes your money and runs away with it laughing, leaving you both upset with how much you spent but super duper excited to play with your new makeup. It’s a whirlwind of emotions.
Sephora’s 2017 VIB sale does have a twist this year! For Rouge members only (the top tier of the beauty insider program) you will get to shop your 20% off discount for TWO weekends! Just take my money Sephora! The sale will go as follows:
VIB Rouge will receive 20% off on November 3rd-6th & November 10th-15th — GOING ON NOW!
VIB will receive 20% off on November 10th-15th
Insider will receive 15% off on November 10th-15th.
VIB Rouge has a week preview before any of the other insiders. I really can’t remember if all three 3 tiers were always able to shop their discounts the same weekend. Whatever tier you are though this is the time to start thinking about what you’re going to purchase if you’re going to purchase at all! The VIB sale tends to sellout of hot items pretty quickly! It’s also a good way to stock up on some favorites perhaps that you wouldn’t normally purchase at full price.
Huda Beauty as a whole is really on my radar this sale season! I really want to try her #FauxFilter foundation. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about it! I also would love one of her Obsession Eyeshadow Palettes. They’re mini eyeshadow palettes that come in 4 different shade ranges — Electric: super fun bold colors, Smokey: perfect miniature smokey palette, Mauve: purples and cranberries, and Warm Brown: your typical gorgeous warm tones. Each palette comes with 9 eyeshadows for $27. That’s a really great deal if you ask me!

Huda’s shadows are so high quality. I already know I love them so I’m sure I’d love these minis as well. I have her Desert Dusk palette and it is by far one of my most favorite eyeshadow palettes EVER and I just bought it 2 months ago. I highly suggest that one as well for the sale!
If you haven’t tried the Fenty Beauty foundation yet, what are you doing girl?! With 40 shades to choose from you will definitely find one to match your skin tone! Rihanna changed the makeup game when she released this foundation sheerly for the fact of how inclusive she has made her line. The foundation itself is very comfortable on the skin and really makes your face look flawless. It is more of a matte finish but nothing where it’s super matte that it looks like your face has no life to it. It’s more of a soft matte like the Sonia Kashuk Soft Matte foundation at Target. Gorgeous! I have drier skin but as long as I moisturize and really hydrate my skin with hydrating primers beforehand the foundation doesn’t cling to any dry patches at all. It’s also a pretty reasonably priced foundation ($34) for high end!
If you’re a highlight queen you need an Anastasia Glow Kit in your life. Those Glow Kits… oh my goodness. They will make you shine like the top of the Chrysler Building. Miss Hannigan would be SO proud. I highly recommend the original Glow Kit as well as the new Sugar Glow Kit. Both are absolutely stunning and you can mix and match with all 4 highlights that come in the palette. The highlight pans are very generous in each palette. Each highlight palette retails for $40, including the 6 pan Moonchild and Aurora Glow Kits. The only Glow Kit that fell short was the Ultimate Glow Kit but I don’t believe Sephora carries it anymore.
Leave me a comment if you’re going to participate in this season’s sale and also let me know what is on your wishlist!
