Every April, Sephora offers shoppers something that’s rarely seen in the makeup retail world-a sale (or discount) on cosmetics! This year the Sephora VIB sale is for 15% off your total order and runs online and in stores April 7-13 for VIB Rouge Members, 15% off online/in store April 8-13 for VIB Members and for Beauty Insiders, it runs April 9-13 at 10% off. You’ll also need a code to get the discount: for Rouge members it’s ROUGENOTE, for VIB members it’s VIBNOTE and for BI members it’s BINOTE. I should note that many items are now “online only”, so for the best selection (and no crowds) shop online!
Shopping at Sephora during the best of times can be overwhelming, and during their sales it’s downright frenetic, so I thought I’d help you navigate by giving you a combination of my particular favorites and the items going on my shopping list. Here they are, broken down into categories:
There are two major categories here–the basics that you know you’ll need and should stock up on, and the splurge items that you know you can justify buying, even if the discount is only 15%! But who are we kidding, to makeup junkies, they’re all needs!
