Hey guys! I thought since today is the first day of the Sephora VIB Sale, that I would come up with a list of the few products that I think are the most exciting or are the best buy and value for money this year.
If you don’t know what the Sephora VIB sale is, every year there is a 20% off sale at Sephora. It’s open first for VIB Rouge Members, the highest membership level, for a few days. This year it’s November 3rd through the 6th. For VIB members and Beauty Insiders, the sale starts on November 10th through the 15th. VIB members get 20% off and Insiders get 15% off. Plus, if you shop in-store you can get a free tote!
What Should You Buy?
Let’s get on to the good stuff! So I always recommend restocking on your favorite beauty items that you repurchase throughout the year. This could be your foundation of choice, your must-have concealer, mascara, face powder, primer, bronzer, etc. Really anything that you know you’re bound to repurchase, because who doesn’t want to get 20% off!
Currently, I’m looking at the DiorShow Plump n’ Volume Holiday set because firstly, I’m in the market for a new mascara and secondly, it comes with this adorable mini eyeshadow palette. I’ve always wanted to try Dior eyeshadows so this is my perfect opportunity to give them a test without breaking the bank! This set goes for $29!
Next, I like to move on to new products that have been on my wishlist. This is where the holiday collections come in. I LOVE beauty holiday collections. I think some of these sets and palettes are such great value for money! Here are my top choices of 2017!
Every year Hourglass comes out with a new Ambient Edit Palette. I picked up the one from two years ago and I’ve been obsessed ever since. It’s perfect for travel. The amount of product they give you is rather generous ($13 per 1.3g powder in the palette vs their minis, also 1.3g, which go for $24 ea). Their colors and pigmentation are always on point as well. This one always a must buy for me!
I’m all about a good face palette. Since I travel a lot, they can reduce so much clutter and bulk in my makeup bag. This one is perfect because I love the Hoola bronzer and the Galifornia Blush, two Spring and Summer makeup essentials of mine. Plus, I get the opportunity to try out a new highlighter I’ve always been curious about, What’s Up. And at $20, what a steal!
I love the Too Faced holiday collection every year. They always manage to do a great job. Each year they release a set with multiple palettes, which I think is awesome because it’s great for travel and if you’re buying a little gift for a few people you can split these three palettes up. They’re also perfect stocking stuffers! Too Faced makes great eyeshadows so you really can’t go wrong with any piece from their collection.
On My “To Try” List
I always have a few products or brands that are on my radar and when given the opportunity, I make an effort to try out a few things from their line. At the moment I’m interested in ColourPop. They’ve got one eyeshadow set, their Polite AF Super Shock Shadow Collection, that has caught my eye and intrigued me. I’ve heard great things so this is definitely on my Sephora VIB Sale shopping list.
Another product that has caught my eye is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio. I’ve never tried any of Anastasia’s face products, so this gorgeous blush trio seems like the perfect opportunity. There are 5 sets of amazing color combinations, so there’s a blush trio for everyone! Also, it’s perfect for travel! Am I being repetitive?
Lastly, Herbivore is a skincare brand that I’ve been watching for a while now. I haven’t tried any of their products but this set, the Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio, includes two products I’ve really been interested in: the Coco Rose Body Polish and the Coco Rose Lip Conditioner. So many of amazing value sets are released this time of year, so it’s the perfect moment to try something new!
Hopefully, you’ve found some favorites this Sephora VIB Sale! I know my cart is way too full at the moment. Let me know what you’ve got your eye on. I’d love to hear your recommendations.
