It’s that time of the year again…. the semi annual Sephora sale is among us! If you are a Sephora beauty member like me then you know how anticipated this sale is given the fact that Sephora HARDLY gives us discounts. This discount does not only apply to select brands within the store, but will reduce the final price of ANY product sold in Sephora (that’s right, nothing is off limits!). How exciting is this??

If you have no idea as what I am talking about just know that 2 times a year, Sephora offers its members a sale percentage off any purchase for a specific time period. Below is the breakdown of what percentage each status gets.

SALE from 05/02/19-05/06/19:
Rouge: 20% off entire oder (HEYROUGE)
VIB: 15% off entire order
Beauty Insider: 10% off entire order

So now that you are aware of the sale, you are probably wondering what products you should actually purchase. See the below categories of items I typically go for.


1. The first thing I love to do is restocks on products I use on a daily and that I constantly finish. For me this includes brow products, concealers and mascaras.


2. During this time I like to invest in Skin care products because they tend to be bit pricey (although very effective). Serums, moisturizers, cleansers, exfoliators and masks are all suggested for healthier and glowy skin. Some of my favorite brands are Tatcha, Drunk Elephant and First Aid beauty. A VIB sale is the perfect opportunity to try new skin care products at a reduced price.


3. VIB sale season is a great time to purchase those expensive items you’ve always wanted to try but couldn’t get yourself to pay the price (I don’t blame you, paying big bucks for a eyeshadow palette hurts). This is the time to dabble into higher end brands that have items you desire.


4. Another item that tends to be expensive is perfumes. Buying them during the sale can save you a few bucks and should last you until the next one (which is usually around the holidays).


5. Lastly, purchasing value sets during the sale ensures that you are getting various products at an even lower price. This is perfect for testing out the best sellers for specific brands or for beginners.

I hope this was a helpful guide for anyone who is unsure as to what to purchase during this sale. If you made any purchases, please share them below….I would love to know what you got. Catch you next time!
