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!
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!
- Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation (liquid)
- Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Mad Max Brown
- Foreo Luna Mini (in baby pink!!)
- Becca Glow on the Go Shimmering Skin Perfector Moonstone Set
- Orgins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

- Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop
