The Sephora Spring Bonus VIB Sale Shopping Event is here! If you’re VIB Rouge (you lucky girl, you!), you can start shopping today (4/18) with 15% off, but the rest of us have to wait just a little bit! I’ll break down those promo codes and dates for you below in just a sec.
Guys, during these events — the hot, new arrivals tend to sell out fast. So when it’s your time to shop, get those keyboard fingers ready! Here are the details, plus the promo codes and dates you can shop online.
To my understanding, you can use these promo codes as many times as you’d like during your designated time frames depending on what level of VIB you are — but you won’t be able to stack it with any other codes. Bummer on that, but YAY FOR SAVINGS! I worked at Sephora over 10 years ago, we NEVER had sales and products were marked down very rarely — so I’m glad to see that for the last few years we’ve been able to save cash on beauty products at Sephora. Saving money, is saving money! I’m always down for that.
A few things I’d like to bring to your attention before I show you some of my top picks to jump on!
If you are not already subscribed to Sephora Flash, now is a really good time to do it. For just $10, you’ll receive free 2-day shipping on all purchases with no minimum purchase required for an entire year! Also, do not overlook the SALE page! You may find some goodies there, and your VIB discount can also be applied to them. I would honestly jump on some of those discounted Sephora Favorites Sets. They are a great way to try new products! And with that, let’s look at my top picks…
This is a GORGEOUS blush shade that looks great on all skin tones. It smells slightly of grapefruit (but nothing too overpowering), and it gives the prettiest, natural-looking sheen and warm pink hue — without any chunky glitter, etc. This blush is a must-see! (I’ve actually reviewed GALifornia here.) $29
What can I say? These lipsticks are HOT STUFF, and the colors are gorgeous. Kat’s Studded Kiss Lipstick formula is popular and well-loved. Don’t miss this one, it’s fun! $45
The unicorn frenzy has me wanting these brushes in a MAJOR way! I think these are super cute, and a good value at just $39 for five brushes. (Did I mention, they’re like unicorn brushes? Hee hee!)
This set features great skincare products from Dr. Jart+, First Aid Beauty, Kate Somerville, IT Cosmetics, Sunday Riley, and more! These are deluxe sizes, and the perfect amount to get acquainted with new products to decide what’s worthy of a full-size purchase. I personally enjoy these sets! These sets usually sell fast because they’re a good value. If you’re looking to switch up your skincare routine (or just like new goodies), I highly recommend this one at $48.
How cute is this? I’ve seen several of my friends wearing these, and they not only feature Clinique’s iconic Chubby Stick formula, but they’re like Crayola’s for your lips! Absolutely adorable and just $25 for a set of four. What a great collaboration.
I don’t know about you, but I love trying new fragrances in this manner! Inside this set for $25, you’ll receive travel-trial vials of Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette, MAISON MARGIELA REPLICA Beach Walk Eau de Toilette, MIU MIU L’Eau Bleue Eau de Parfum, Stella McCartney POP Eau de Parfum, TOCCA Giulietta Eau de Parfum, and Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Bleue Eau de Parfum. The best part? There’s a scent certificate inside! Exchange the included voucher for a FREE travel size of your favorite featured fragrance.
This brand is blowing up, and features products containing farm-grown botanicals. The entire line is farmer cultivated, and scientifically activated. I’m a big fan of their Honey Savior Multi-Purpose Salve. Green Screen is formulated with naturally-derived ingredients (pretty impressive for an SPF 30 if you ask me), and lacks parabens and sulfates. This is a physical sunscreen with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. If you’re looking to steer clear of chemical sunscreens, check this one out. Summer is coming! Stay protected. $36
I’m so bummed I haven’t had a chance to try this out yet, but I have several friends who say this collection is holy grail-worthy! It’s for all skin types, and is supposed to help oily-ness, pore size (by unclogging debris), with acne without stripping the skin. The kit comes with Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser, Balancing Force Oil Control Toner, and Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator. $34
Brand new and part of their skincare/makeup collection, Urban Decay just released Lip Love — a delicious mint and coconut balm that feels plush on my lips and preps them for my lipstick for the day. I’ve been wearing some drying formulas, and the moisture from shea butter, coconut oil, and other protective emollients does just the trick. $15
If you’ve wanted this high-ticket item, now is the time to get it while you can take advantage of the sale. I’ve played around with this pricey new hair tool, and as a former stylist myself — I’m really impressed with how lightweight and quiet it is. It also dries my hair so much faster than my usual hair dryer. The motor is actually in the handle, and it feels really balanced in my hands. If I weren’t on a no-buy right now — this would be my big splurge! $399
This is one of my FAVORITE new finds! Youth To The People is an up-and-coming skincare line. All of their products are like superfoods for your skin! This cleanser has kale, green tea, vitamins, and spinach, and is meant for all skin types. It’s sulfate and paraben-free, and smells delicious. Highly recommend! $36
I can’t stress this enough! I know I mentioned it at the beginning of the post, but PLEASE if you haven’t already — sign up for Sephora Flash! It’s $10 for an entire year of free 2-day shipping with no minimum purchase required. If you’re lucky enough to be VIB Rouge, you can enroll for free for the year that you’re VIB Rouge! That’s a great perk. This is a good opportunity to save on shipping that I don’t want you to miss. (Unfortunately, you cannot apply your discount to this service, with the exception of VIB Rouge who can enroll for free.)
