What I Bought During the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale

It's the most, wonderful timeeeee, of the yearrrrrrr!! (Too soon, I know). But it is the season for a reason--to makeup shop. I was not planning on announcing my blog this early, but I had a lot of people who were curious about what I was getting for the Sephora sale. I decided last minute this was the perfect time to publicly post my first blog post. I hope you all enjoy this blog and all that is to come because I have put my blood, sweat, and tears into making this site. More will be coming soon so be sure to subscribe for updates!

As most of you know, Sephora has 2 large sales a year: one around April and the biggest event is in November: the VIB Rouge Event. Sephora has three shopper-ranks based on how much you spend a year: Beauty Insider [$0-349/year], VIB [$350+ a year], and VIB ROUGE [$1,000+ a year]. Depending on your rank determines your discount amount during the sale. VIB and VIB ROUGE status members receive 20% off their entire purchase and Beauty Insiders receive 15% off.

Today I am sharing my VIB Rouge purchases! I will go into detail for each product and I hope it helps you narrow down your wishlist for the sale. VIB Rouge members' sale started on November 3rd because we got first access. However, no matter your rank, your sale is going on NOW (11/10-11/15) and you should have your promotion code emailed to you. For VIB ROUGE members, the code is 20FORROUGE! I hope you enjoy!

Buxom Lip Polish Holiday Ornament | $16

This lipgloss is SO cute! The limited edition gold leopard packaging is EVERYTHING--not to mention it comes in an adorable ornament. Buxom lipglosses are some of my absolute favorite. They usually retail for $20 but this gloss, in a limited edition shade, only retails for $16. The color is gorgeous too. It is a clear gloss with purple and copper reflects. You can shop this gloss HERE; but hurry, it won't be around forever!

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick | $46

This foundation is a little pricier for the average girl, but the sale's discount makes it a steal! This foundation is one of my top 5 favorites of all time. A little goes a long way, the coverage is medium-to-full, and you are left with a gorgeous satin finish. My skin looks airbrushed when I wear this! It it compact and I enjoy the stick-form because I can pop it in my purse or travel bag with ease. You can shop this foundation HERE!

Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Powder | $32

It is safe to say Rihanna KILLED her makeup line. I repurchased this powder because it has instantly become one of my favorites! It is colorless, making it good for any skin color without flashback. You can set your face or under-eye area with this, or have it in your purse to get rid of any shine throughout the day. You can shop this powder HERE.

Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask | $55

I was so excited to get my hands on this mask! For those of you who don't know, Sunday Riley is hands down my favorite skin care brand. I use so many of their products and they are life-changing! I have not tried this mask yet but if you would like an update, feel free to let me know! It is made for all skin types  and it fights existing blemishes while preventing new ones from forming. You can find this mask HERE

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium 1.0 oz | $69

I received this perfume for free a few months back (shared on my snapchat) and I was OBSESSED. I had to buy a second! The notes are coffee accord, orange blossom, cedarwood essence, and patchouli essence. It is warm, but fresh, and it is perfect for the colder seasons. You can shop this cult classic scent right HERE

L'Occitane Cleansing and Softening Shower Oil Mini | $9.50 

I have heard nothing but amazing things about this shower oil. Everyone tells me it is the most moisturizing, relaxing, spa-like body wash...sign me up! I got the travel size just to test out before I invest in the full size bottle. I also love anything with almond oil so it was a no brainer for me. Shop it HERE

Tatcha The Water Gel | $65

I use this water gel religiously, every time I do my makeup. It absorbs quickly into my skin and makes my skin soft and moisturized for a perfect foundation base. It makes my pores appear smaller as well so I use it more as a primer. This was a repurchase and I highly recommend! Shop this HERE

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer | $18

I am SO late on the bandwagon, I know, I know. I have heard great things about this gloss and it truly lives up to the hype! It is perfect for everyday use because it is a pinky-peach nude that looks flattering on every skin tone! You can shop this universal lipgloss HERE

Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer | $49

If you do not own this bronzer WHAT ARE YOU DOING? This bronzer adds the perfect amount of warmth no matter what season. It is a must have an any collection. Did I mention, the size of the pan is as big as my hand?! For the price, you get so much! I will say, for a "universal" bronzer that only comes in one shade, it really wouldn't show up on anyone past a medium skin tone. You can view the bronzer HERE

Herbivore Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask | $48

I have never heard of the brand Herbivore before, but the claims and reviews of this face mask instantly had me hooked! I discovered it on Sephora's website a few months back and literally waited for this sale to try it out! It has 4.5/5 stars with 559 reviews! That's impressive for a face mask. The mask claims that it soothes irritated skin, reduces redness, exfoliates dead skin cells, decongests clogged pores, and leaves you with a smoother, healthier-looking complexion. WOW right?! I am so excited to try this out! If you would like to shop this mask or read more on it, click HERE

Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette | $129 

I KNOW what you're thinking and no, I have not gone crazy.  Before you run away at the price, let me try to justify this purchase. I love Natasha Denona Shadows. They are some of the most pigmented, highest quality shadows on the market and the price reflects that. 15 shadows for $129 makes each pan $8.60 a pop. If you own a Z-Palette and have filled one up with eyeshadow singles, you know those range from $7-15 a pan; sometimes more. So if you like a majority of the colors, go ahead and splurge! I am a SUCKER for warm colors so I needed this in my life. This was originally a limited edition item for a summer launch but the brand decided to make it permanent; and you can shop it HERE

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 28 | $239

If you were dying on the inside over the first Natasha Denona palette, then hold onto your seats. Not only did I spend $239 on another eyeshadow palette, but it came with one pan broken [insert tears here]. All is well, I am exchanging it for one that is not broken--no worries! There are 2 colors to choose from in the 28 palettes: Purple Blue and Green-Brown. The one shown above is the Purple Blue. I do, However already own the Green-Brown and it is one of the best palettes I own. Because of this, I did not care to splurge on another palette. The breakdown makes each pan $8.50 a piece. The pans are large and each shade is high quality. You can shop this palette HERE for the price of an arm and a leg!

Stila Eye For Elegance Liquid Eyeshadow Set | $45

I am in love with Stila liquid glitter eyeshadows so this giftset was a MUST. This $72 value is only $45! There is no way you can use up a full sized one, so having a ton of minis is an amazing way to save money! Also, keep your eyes peeled because soon, you will have a chance to win one of these sets, along with a lot more goodies ;) Shop this HERE

Anastasia Beverly Hills Holiday Blush Kit | $30

I loveeeee ABH as a brand! They have the best products and I have been obsessed with Anastasia's daughter, Norvina, for years. $30 for 4 blushes? Do I need to say more?! This holiday blush kit comes in 2 colors, Radiant and Gradient. The one I got it Radiant and would be best for Fair-Medium skin tones. The Gradient palette would be GORGEOUS for Medium-Deepest skin tones because the color selection is darker. You can shop both kits HERE

Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks in Naked & Stripped | $20 each

Anastasia has a wide variety of liquid lipstick colors! They are so pigmented that you don't even need a liner! I added Naked and Stripped to my collection because I love a good nude lip. Stripped [top] is a neutral nude, while Naked [bottom] is a paler, peach nude. You can shop all ABH liquid lipsticks HERE


That's a wrap! I hope you all enjoyed my Sephora VIB sale haul and I hope this put you over the fence on some of your choices! Don't forget, you can only shop the sale starting today, November 10th, through Wednesday, November 15th! What are your must haves this holiday season?
