Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations + Wish List

vibsalecover BONUS post this week guys!! Because it's pretty much a holiday in the beauty world this week! If you're a VIB Rouge member, you've already had your pick on the Sephora VIB sale. But for normal VIB's like me, it's just about to begin! On November 11th to be exact! So today I wanted to run through some of my recommendation for the VIB sale and also give you my own little wish list! Plus, share a way to get even more bang for your buck! Stick around to the end to hear how to get an extra 4% off your total!


It's no secret that I am a drug store makeup junkie. Wet n' Wild and Elf are often my brands of choice, and both are among the least expensive on the market. But if I'm being truthful, when it comes to mascaras I am a high end kind of girl. The VIB sale is the perfect time to stock up on your favorites! My recommendations include Too Faced's Better than Sex Mascara, Benefit's Roller Lash and Lancome's Hypnose Drama. I've been LOVING all the deluxe samples I have collected over the last few months, but $20-30 for a mascara is a steep price! palettes

When it comes to palettes I have to recommend picking up one of my favorite palettes of all time if you don't yet have it in your collection! It is, of course, the Tartelette in Bloom Palette. Now, this lovely little palette released quite a while ago but I still felt it was only right to mention it because the shade range is perfect for fall! (And versatile ALL YEAR ROUND too!) You can check out swatches and a full review in a pretty old post of mine here!


The quality of this picture makes me cringe but I had to include this awesome value set! I have already spoken about the Sephora Favorites Give me Some Lip several times and they finally restocked it! I highly recommend picking up one of the Sephora Favorites kits, if not this one. They always come with such a great value for the price. This one specifically comes with two awesome full size items (Lancome Juicy Shaker and Smashbox liquid lipstick), along with four generous deluxe samples and is only $29! They're all beautiful, very wearable colors for all skin tones and are the mauvey tones are PERFECT for fall!


And another awesome value set currently being sold is this baby right here! This is a holiday set that Smashbox released for the season and it contains six gorgeous deluxe sample lipsticks and a mattifier. I picked this up a couple weeks ago and have been loving these lipsticks. I'm going to go out on a limb and say they may actually be the most comfortable lipsticks I've ever worn! They are most definitely worth the price of $29! Plus you get this gorgeous acrylic container to store things in after opening!


Stock up on high end foundations during the sale! One of my least favorite things to purchase full price is a high end foundation, because they are just so darn expensive. And once I love a foundation, oh I'm in love. My top foundation pick for the sale would definitely be the Makeup Forever HD Foundation Stick. This foundation is KEY to a quick morning makeup routine! It seriously takes me under a minute to blend out! Plus this foundation is perfect for the dry winter months, it has a beautiful, moisturiznig dewy finish. (And a tip for my really dry friends out there! Apply a moisturizing primer below this stuff and it will hydrate the crap out of your skin.)

So here's my wish list for the Sephora VIB Sale! I can't wait to share with you what I end up picking up!

7 Lippies Perfect for Fall

Fall Lippie Favorites I have missed you guys so much!!! What a week this has been (like every other week). But, I'm so excited, because today I get to share my top favorites lipstick shades for fall! Now, I just want to let you all know from the start... when I picked out these products I really tried to choose a variety of colors, formulas and price points! So if you're only in it for the drug store game, you will not be disappointed! But just for kicks I added a few high end products too! I really hope I could hit all the high points for the fall lipstick game and I hope you enjoy this post!

Fall Lippie Favorites

Starting off with the liquid lips. Like I said I really tried to reach a wide price range for these lippies, and all but one of these four are under $10!

The first picks I made were definitely the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips! The two colors I chose are Times Square and Viper. Both of these shades are a part of the new fall line and I am OBSESSED with them both! If you have yet to try the Colourpop liquid lip formula, I would say it's very similar to that of the Kylie liquid lipsticks or Anastasia's. Although, I find that they do dry out my lips a bit after a long day of wear. I still really love the formula and color selection and they are definitely worth the price of just $6! Anyways, Times Square is the perfect nude, in my humble opinion! I find that super light nudes completely wash out my skin tone, so this cool toned slightly darker shade is perfect for me.  I wanted to include something other than mauvey nudes, and Viper called my name! I love this lipstick because it fits the berry red trend of fall without being too dark for my fair complexion.

Fall Lippie Favorites

The next liquid lipstick in the bunch is one of my favorite drug store lip products of all time, the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creams! I went with the color Precious, which is definitely wearable all year round, but seems even more perfect for the fall/winter season. Precious is a little bit darker than the average mauve shade and that's what I love the most about it. I really feel like this shade is wearable with any makeup look or outfit. Other than the color, the formula of these lipsticks is phenomenal! It does have a very creamy, almost mousey consistency, but don't let that put you off. When applied on the lips it thins out to a nice texture and lasts for HOURS!

Fall Lippie Favorites

My final liquid lipstick pick is, of course, the Kylie Liquid Lipstick in Candy K. How could I not include this? Not only is it the liquid lipstick of the times, but it's also a gorgeous shade! It's taupey cool tones create such a unique lip pairing for the cooler months. I literally can't stop wearing it. As previously mentioned, the formula does remind me a lot of the Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lips, but it is a little less drying in my opinion. It lasts  a very long time on the lips and is super transfer proof! Check out my full review here!

Fall Lippie Favorites

Annnnnd for the non-liquid lipstick wearers (or the every kind of lipstick wearers!)...

For my first pick I want to talk about a little random dupe I found! So I chose two of my absolute favorite lipsticks of ALL TIME to be in this post, Colourpop X Kathleen Lights Lumiere Lippie Stick and Urban Decay's Backtalk. And it honestly wasn't until I was swatching them all next to each other for the pictures that I realized these two are complete dupes, in not only their shade, but also almost identically in formula. Both of these beautiful lippies are the definition of the perfect mauve, and they both have the most comfortable creamy formula. The only differences I notice are, of course, the packaging and if I think long and hard about the formula, Backtalk is a little creamier and less drying. But otherwise everything else is the same, well, except for the fact that Lumiere if $5 (FIVE FREAKIN DOLLARS!) and Backtalk is $17. (*Insert shocked emoji here*) But seriously these are two of my holy grail lipsticks and I highly recommend them for any day of the year, but especially for fall! (Also, one last side note* Lumiere is currently sold out on the Colourpop website, I will link it anyway and hopefully they restock soon.)

Fall Lippie Favorites

The final lip favorite I have for the autumnal months is Nars Dolce Vita! If you've been around for a while you know that Dolce Vita on top of Marc Jacob's Prim Rose is pretty much the love of my life. But, I also adore Dolce Vita on its own! Both the lip pencil and lip stick versions are the most beautiful, creamy formula and I love throwing them on for my light makeup days! This one's for my sheer lipstick lovers! I highly highly recommend this lovely shade.

Well that's all I have for today!
