VIB Rouge

Sephora VIB Rouge/VIB SALE

There are two times of year that all beauty lovers patiently wait for – the VIB ROUGE/VIB SALE! Since Sephora makeup never goes on sale otherwise, this is the time to take advantage of the discount!

With my 20% off I went to town. Some of these items I bought previously, but held on to them to help give ideas for what to buy during the sale.


One of the things I’m drawn to each year is the “Sephora Favorites” line. This year they had a fantastic variety, and as you can see I brought a few of them home….

I went back and forth on the Beauty Sleep box. I have more masks than I know what to do with, but anytime I see Sunday Riley included in a gift set, I’m drawn to it like a moth to a flame. LOVE Sunday Riley.


The Soko to Tokyo I bought for only one reason: Tatcha. The Dewy Skin Mist was on my radar for a while, and this became the perfect opportunity to give it a whirl.


Extravagant Eyes was a bit outside my comfort zone, but those LASHES! I love them. Huda for the win.

When it comes to the Scouted By Sephora box I coveted the Lash Food and Drunk Elephant. Their prices individually were enough to make this worth while.

In the Skin Wonderland box I went for the SKII toner (and of course, Sunday Riley). I’ve been using it and I can say it’s fantastic.

And finally in Trending: Beauty’s Most Coveted the Foreo and mix of products I use frequently pushed me to get it. The Foreo definitely justified the cost.

And then from there I had a little more fun with Moroccanoil, Sunday Riley, Tarte, Too Faced, Stila, Michael Kors, Clinique, IT Cosmetics (CC Cream was bought at Ulta, but you can get it at Sephora now), Jouer, Sol de Janeiro (Brazilian Bum Bum cream is AMAZING), Surat, and Ole Henriksen!

I hope everyone enjoys the sale!!


VIB Sephora Haul -UPDATE

This weekend I was at the mall, and found myself in the Sephora inside JC Penney. I had totally forgot to check there before thinking my sale shopping was over. I came across two sets, that I believe are exclusive to these Sephora’s. SO glad I went and checked it out!

I picked up the Sephora Favorites Beauty Unmasked – and I couldn’t resist the group of products they put together for this: FullSizeRender 26.jpg

I also picked up the Sephora Favorites Skin Wonderland, and again, the group of products is amazing. I had been thinking I hadn’t picked up any skin care items, and now I rounded out my haul! Can’t wait to try them out!

VIB Rouge Sephora Haul


The Sephora VIB sale is my FAVORITE time of year. This year I hit Rouge status (which is both thrilling and embarrassing) and I couldn’t wait for my 20% to arrive. I went a little crazy picking things up since I took a bit of a Sephora hiatus in recent months. What better time to buy then when the entire store is on sale?! I prefer buying value sets because I feel like I get a lot for my money and I get to try everything I’ve been eyeing without dropping tons of money.

FullSizeRender 21I just HAD to pick up the makeup bag above, because it is in my favorite color combo, gold and white. I also picked up the Burberry BURBERRY KISSES lipstick in Military Red No. 109, because the packaging is gorgeous in gold, and the red color is perfect for the holidays. I can’t wait to try it! I also love anything that smells like almonds (although strangely I don’t like almonds) and fell in love with the L’Occitane Almond Delights set. Their hand cream is my favorite, and I was so excited to see the almond scent.

There are SO many sets this season, and I had to think hard about what I could really use. I ordered the Give Me More Lip set which has some pretty great colors that I can try, and I picked up the Extend Your Style set in store. I love dry shampoo so it will definitely be used.

I would normally pass right over the perfume set, but once I found out that it includes a certificate for a full size perfume (from those included in the set) I went ahead and picked it up. I already have a few of the samples, but wanted to try a few more. I wound up throwing out about 5 of them. I think I might pick up Prada Candy in the full size version. (I’m in love with it!)

I was thrilled to see that one of the 500 point perks was from YSL. I love Black Opium, and I’ve been wanting to try some more of their products. The Touche Eclat looks fantastic and I can’t wait to try it.

Beyond what is pictured I picked up:

-Beautyblender Solid Bar

-Miniemergency kit (Black studded version)

-Burberry Eyebrow Definer

-Estee Lauder Be Envied: Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick Collection

-Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in Lolita

I will definitely post about the items that I love! What did you pick up at the sale?
