Let me just start with this was the most I ever spent at Sephora in my entire life. Maybe for some v/bloggers out there, dropping $500+ at Sephora in a single visit isn’t a huge deal, but I didn’t even spend close to that and I was having slight palpitations/near vomiting at the register. I have real life problems outside of this beauty nook and real responsibilities. I wish I was still 16 and able to spend my entire $100/week paycheck at the mall, but I digress. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little giddy about my new goodies in this Sephora VIB sale haul! Ready, set, let’s go…
*FYI, the Sephora VIB Sale is happening NOW through 11/14 for VIB Rouge Members in stores and online (using code 20ROUGE) to get 20% off your order. Regular VIB members get access to 20% off starting next Fri. 11/11-11/14. Discount can be used multiple times throughout the sale period. See my original Wish List and Recommendations here.
Because I never have a hard time wanting to buy one of everything from the ‘color’ side of Sephora, let’s start with the cosmetics I scooped up…
I think I’m actually more excited about these purchases than the color/cosmetics stuff – which rarely happens. Because my skin is so damn sensitive, I never get to have too much ‘fun’ with skin care. However; I’ve actually tried (almost) every one of these as samples first. Bless Sephora and their samples policy. It makes my purchasing behavior so much more confident!
Just for fun, let’s discuss the samples I picked up because they very well may be part of a last-minute mini haul later in the week.
Record breaking history was made today, readers. I FINALLY – in the history of my makeup purchasing – qualified for VIB Rouge status! That means I successfully spent $1,000 at Sephora in a calendar year, lol. Shockingly, I have never done that before. That’s how I got that little NARS blush sample. Now I get free shipping on all orders for a year, plus a ton of other little Rouge perks with Sephora. ::happydance::
Those are the goods from my epic 2016 Sephora VIB sale haul. If I happen to pick up a couple last-minute extras (like one of those foundations from my samples), I’ll keep you all posted on SnapChat or InstaStories. Did you happen to make it to Sephora today? What did you pick up/order online?
