It's very rare for beauty products to go on sale and when they do... it's a huge deal.
Sephora's VIB sale happens biannually and everything is marked down. HELLO, SAVINGS! With 15-20 percent off, it's the best time to pick up those pricier products you've been eyeing all year.
Here are a couple of my recommendations per department of what you should get!
HUDA BEAUTY Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette: Available in four colour themes — Mauve, Warm Brown, Smokey, and Electric — these lightweight palettes combine nine mattes and shimmers into a super compact, mirrored palette that you can take on the go with you. I personally love the Mauve palette the best.
IT COSMETICS Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer: Easily one of the best concealers I've ever used for spot coverage. The smallest dab gives you heavy coverage and it's waterproof!
IT COSMETICS Vitality Lip Flush Stain Hydrating Serum Gloss Stain: This is my absolute favourite lip gloss to use. It's super hydrating, but not sticky, and glides on the lips giving it a sheer and natural flush of colour that literally lasts all day.
FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment: If you want a hydrating balm instead of a lip gloss, this is the one for you. I got one in my birthday gift from Sephora a few years back and never looked away since. My favourite one is Rosé.
CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir: This toning mist acts as a setting spray. It gives you an instant glow while tighting the pores. It's also very lightweight!
LANEIGE Water Bank Moisture Cream: Also nominated as Best of Beauty 2016 from Allure, this patented Hydro Ionized Mineral Water—fusing essential minerals zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, and sodium—helps replenish and retain ideal hydration levels, preventing future moisture loss in your skin.
ERBORIAN Solid Cleansing Oil: This balm cleanser is all-in-one and is the perfect first step in the morning or night to have perfectly cleansed and makeup-free skin. It blends coconut and sunflower seed oil to give the skin a soft and clean feel. I swear by this!
GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD® Clearing Treatment: What is there to say about the GLAMGLOW masks that hasn't been said before? It treats a variety of skin concerns while it's activated-x charcoal leaves you with a glowing complexion.
ST. TROPEZ TANNING ESSENTIALS Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse: This is the best lightweight, easy-to-apply self-tanner I've used that is a mousse. It dries quickly, doesn't have that awful self-tanner smells, and it always comes out even!
Fragrance / Hair
KAT VON D Saint Lipstick + Fragrance Travel Duo: As a person who prefers rollerballs and travel sprays over traditional perfumes, this value set features Kat Von D's Saint Eau de Parfum travel spray and new, exclusive Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shade, Saint. There is also the alternative set with Sinner Eau de Parfum and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, Sinner.
BUMBLE AND BUMBLE The Hairdresser's Set Sp(oil)ed Silly: This trio of hair products from Bumble and Bumble tames, smooths, and protect for silky-smooth results.
LIVING PROOF No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner: Don't let the impending winter frizz happen by using this hydrating treatment. It gives an extra boost of conditioning and frizz protection!
