whitecoat2whitedress: Top Picks for the Sephora VIB Sale

It’s that time of year again when my mail carrier probably gets tired of delivering multiple packages to my door almost daily for a couple weeks… That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, the Sephora VIB Rouge / VIB Sale is here!

The details: The sale started on November 3rd for VIB Rouge members and goes through November 6th. VIB Rouge members receive 20% off. Then we also get a “Holiday Bonus” period during which the sale extends from November 10th-15th. During this time, VIB members also receive 20% off, and Beauty Insiders receive 15% off. There are a few exclusions, though (e.g. ColourPop, Play! boxes)

Since this may not seem that steep of a discount, I try to strategize when selecting my purchases in order to maximize my bang for my buck! Here are some personal rules and tips that I try to follow to keep my cart from getting too out of hand:

Tip #1 – Choose items that are exclusive to Sephora.  Since this retailer doesn’t offer many deals year round, this is a good time to stock up items that you can only find here (e.g. Sephora Collection, Fenty Beauty, Exclusive Sephora Collaborations)

Tip #2 – Take advantage of value sets! I especially love searching through the new Sephora Favorites every year.

Tip #3 – Check out the sale page! It may seem redundant but this just means double discounts, even on their Weekly Wows.

Tip #4 – If you know that you will use an item regularly, it may not be a bad idea to stock up on back-ups while they’re at a discount.

Tip #5 – Have fun but not too much fun, because that can get expensive! Trying new items is just half the fun, so I do let myself get a couple random items to try out.


While there are TONS of new products available at Sephora this time of year, I’m sharing my Top tried-and true, ride-or-die, and holy grail items that I think are worthwhile, especially with the discount!
