With the Spring VIB sale in full swing I thought it would be fun to share some of my top tricks for getting even more bang for your buck during the big event, plus some of my top picks for the sale!
15% off at Sephora is a heavenly discount in itself, but there’s a few ways to stretch the savings even further. First things first, shop online. I know, it can be so fun to walk into Sephora and shop the aisles themselves, taking home your goodies that very day. But, shopping online has several benefits. For starters, it seems like every time I go into my local Sephora they have pretty limited stock on the rewards items, whereas online there is often a larger range of items to choose from. Shopping online you also get access to 3 free samples, which often isn’t an option in store. Finally, shopping online opens the door to my next trick, Ebates. I absolutely love Ebates, at this point I never shop online without them! The concept of Ebates is pretty simple, you shop your favorite stores online through their website, and you get a percentage of your spending back at the end of the quarter. (Sephora usually has 3-4% cash back, but often has double cash back sitting at 8%!) My last trick is to buy Value Sets, Sephora has an awesome selection of value gift sets, often including full and deluxe size items for a fraction of the price. Their Sephora Favorites Give me Some Lip sets are among some of my favorites, they always include at least 2 full size lippies plus several deluxe samples for $28.
The VIB sale is the perfect time to splurge on the pricier foundation you've been eyeing. My top pick would definitely be the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation. This foundation is my ultimate holy grail, it give a flawless medium-full coverage finish while still looking like SKIN. (I also love the stick form!) The sale is also the perfect time to fork over the cash for a gorgeous high end primer like the Becca Backlight Priming Filter. I picked this up during Ulta's recent sale and I am head over heels! It gives such a gorgeous luminosity to my skin, I can't wait to pair it with a pretty bronzer for the summer months. When it comes to skin care there are plenty of wonderful picks I could discuss, but with the discount my number one recommendation would be to pick up the a Foreo Luna Cleansing Device. At over $100 a pop on a normal day that 15% can save you big! I received my Foreo mini for christmas and I swear by it when it comes to my current skin care routine. It's far more hygienic than other brush options and really does a fantastic job cleansing the skin!
For a gorgeous multi-use product grab a few of the Bite Beauty Multi-Sticks. These are some of my favorite products in my collection, they work gorgeously as lipstick, eyeshadow and blush/bronzer! My favorite shades are Gelato and Cashew! Lastly, when it comes to lip products I suggest checking out the Smashbox Always on Matte Liquid Lipsticks. These lippies are my all time favorite liquid lipstick on the market. They are incredibly comfortable to wear, super long lasting, and come in a beautiful variety of colors! My favorite shade is Stepping Out!
