Sephora VIB Sale: What I’m Loving.
I swear it’s a conspiracy against me that the VIB rouge sale falls directly on my birthday. It’s a terrible (read: wonderful) situation for a product junkie like myself. A bunch of you have been asking for my list of favorite things again, so here it is! A couple items I’ve purchased this weekend, things I’m still deciding on in the next 24 hours and stuff I already love and would recommend. I’ll keep it short and sweet! (YEAHRIGHT.)
Here’s what I picked up:
Sunday Riley Power Couple Set. I actually tried to buy this online the day the sale started at 6am and it was already sold out. It’s a ridiculously excellent deal if you want to try these two products. Luckily, I got the last one on the shelf when I got to the store.
Elizabeth and James Dry Shampoo in Nirvana Black. Love this scent, love dry shampoo. Easy!
Tatcha dewy skin mist. Been wanting to try this for months. I love a dewy glow.
Tatcha rice powder exfoliator. Picked up this sample size (only $15!) version in the “aisle of death” as I like to call it, right before checking out. I was super excited to see a little (less expensive) size.
Glam Glow PowerMud mask. I bought the sample size to test out first.
Glam Glow Poutmud Lip. I don’t know why I go nuts over the Glam Glow products – their hydration mask saves my face in the winter.
Fresh Cocoa Body Scrub. Chocolate lovers unite? I couldn’t pass this up. It smells like a chocolate bar.
Sephora Sleeping Mask in Honey. I probably just should have bought the whole sample pack of these and I still might. They are only $4!
I’m still deciding on the:
Viseart Paris Nudes eyeshadow palette. These colors look SO gorgeous. Even though I really want the Jem and the Holagrams palette. WAH. But I need to be an adult.
Elizabeth and James Body Oil in Nirvana Black. Trying to determine if I would actually use this. Or if I’d like it better than spraying perfume.
Maison Margiela REPLICA Lazy Sunday Morning rollerball. I hate that they don’t have these scents in the store. Last year I bought Eddie the scent Jazz Club for Christmas and it’s SO good. Absolutely love it. I have the Beach Walk rollerball and love it too.
Kate Somerville Exfolikate. Everyone tells me this is amazing. Can’t decide! Will it be too harsh for my dry sky?
Nest Holiday Candles. These scents are out of this world and I’m deciding if I should pick up a few as gifts since they are on sale. Hmmmm.
But I absolutely love and 100% recommend these top 10:
Benefit Rollerlash Mascara. Still going strong on this mascara!
Fresh Advanced Therapy lip balm. Even Eddie is obsessed with this now.
Benefit Gimme Brow. A must if you’re short on time and don’t want to fill your brows in for ten minutes.
NARS Smudgeproof Shadow Base. The BEST!!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed. Seriously gorgeous anytime of year.
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. Haven’t worn anything else on my face for months.
Glam Glow Thirstymud. Feels like heaven.
Philosophy Fresh Cream perfume. It’s a sweet scent, but not over the top or bakery-like.
Caudalie Mosturizing Toner. Fantastic if you have dry skin. I use it with an exfoliating cotton pad to remove every last bit of dirt.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light. Seriously gives the most gorgeous glow.
There are a bunch of others, but these are off the top of my head. You can always look back through my beauty favorites from the last three years to see other things I love. Have you made it to the sale yet – or are you going next weekend? Tell me! Be a bad example, please and thank you.

eeeek I’m just as big of a product junkie as you. my sister comes to stay with me just to try out my products :) I’ve been hearing good things about the caolion premium hot and cool pore pack duo so I decided this was the time to try. love the gimme brow and stocked up with2 of those! also picked up my fave first aid facial polish (skin feels awesome, and I have sensitive skin) and decided to try farmacy trio of masks, since they are farmer cultivated and made in New York…. love the vib sale :)
You got some great stuff! I’d love to know how the Glam Glow Poutmud Lip goes. I’ll be purchasing some things next Friday. I’m an eyeshadow junkie so leaning towards MUFE Artist Shadow Palette or a UD Naked palette.
Ok I just had a HUGE panic moment bc you said you got them this weekend and only had 24hrs left to decide. BUT my email and coupon say Nov 13-16…which is so weird but it must be different in different regions?? I’d die if I missed it because I’ve been making a shopping cart for 5 weeks now!
LOVE what you picked up!
VIBrouge is this weekend, regular VIB is next! you didn’t miss it, haha!
i’ve tried the exfolikate and i love glamglow so much more. i see instant results with glamglow and didn’t really with the exfolikate. i feel like it burns too. glamglow is my obsession! they do no wrong. i hear they are coming out with a new product in january! i got the tarte palette that has a little take away travel palette and i am loving it! two roller balls (ysl black opium and nirvana black), giorgio armani foundation, kat von d everlasting lipstick, lavanila deodorant. i realllllllllly wanted the power couple duo but it was sold out! i am really dying to try the nirvana black dry shampoo! thanks for sharing! gonna submit my online order tonight!
“Aisle of Death” ! I burst out laughing! I can’t wait to shop next weekend, you obviously are in a higher tier!
Great picks! I need to try the fresh cocoa body scrub.
Blonde in Cashmere
i may still order one more time while the sale is going on but i really don’t need much. and of course i ordered some stuff a week before the sale because i always forget when it is. i put the nirvana white perfume oil on my christmas list! but i’m wanting the dry shampoo super bad!!!
I’m obsessed with all things Tatcha. Seriously their blotting papers are incredible. I want that mist spray now! The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is a must buy. I need to try it!
Hi I’m back. Have you tried the SK-II masks yet? I bit the bullet and bought one (holy cow $17 a piece!). I’m waiting to try it after a 10 hour flight I’m taking later this week and it better be amazing! (I hear it is!)
i got gimme brow this weekend! it actually looks like i have eyebrows now!
Whoa, you got some good stuff. I need to weed through my wish list. Too much right now! I’m glad you got some Sunday Riley products.
Always so inspired by your beauty posts! Trying out some Tarte cosmetics for the first time!
Fresh? Cocoa body butter?? Swoon!!! I use their advance lip repair (white tube) with the brown sugar lip scrub last winter and my lips were never chapped. Waiting patiently until Friday!
I can attest to the fact that Tarte blush in exposed is amazing whenever!

I bought the Paris Nudes palette almost a month ago, and it’s everything they say it is. The pigments are rich, smooth and blend like a dream. I’m not a fan of high shine eyeshadow, but these are fine. The shimmer isn’t shiny or metallic like you see sometimes. It’s a refined, adult kind of shimmer. So, hey, if you want to ‘be an adult’, then hey! You really need this palette!
Seriously, I haven’t used any other eyeshadow since, and the dang thing sits on my counter to be admired every day. Am I obssessed?

The GlamGlow power mud is on sale at Amazon for only $38!
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! This sale is like a drug addiction!! You don’t want to use it but you have to and you over spend and then feel guilty. Right in time for their $20 off coupon to arrive in December and then I do it all over again!!! Of course i justify the horrendous amount of $$ i spend on the fact that i have a beauty instagram page and can do reviews there…..
So far i know i need:
Laura Mercier Translucent setting powder
Urban Decay afterglow blush (i’m being wild and crazy and trying Bitter Sweet!!) Urban Decay All nighter setting spray duo (must have and an amazing deal!!!)
Benefit Watt’s Up cream highlighter (wanted this one for a while, gives an amazing glow!!!)
YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll (pricy but better than They’re real in my opinion!!!)
OMG I am so glad you posted, this bc it prompted me to look at the site and see that the Ambient in Dim Glow has a “sample” size for half the price.. I’ve been wanting to try it SO BAD but I am kinda cheap and didn’t want to buy the full size one without trying it first.. AND my Sephora doesn’t carry ANY Hourglass products! *insert crying emoji*
AND I got an awesome samples bag with code PARTYPICKS! So basically you just made my day!
i am SO close to being VIB. Question for you, lady: how much are the discounts? Like, super-major, have-to-buy-now, or just a little bit to encourage more impulse buys?
When I walk into Sephora, I always want to get everything!
YES to Kate Somerville ExfoliKate!!! They have a small size and you can always return it, if you don’t like it and another excuse to go to the store. I have also used glamglow and love kate’s sooo much better as I feel it “working” and the glow (for me) and clean feeling afterwards is amazing. You can leave it on up to two minutes, but can remove before and do once a week, if you have sensitive skin. I put it on while showering as the steam in the shower really makes a difference. Kate’s products have been a game changer for me, every time I try one I become obsessed and skin gets better. So going to stock up on Kate Somerville’s products during the sale next weekend.
Eeeeek! Love this post! I was so excited to attend my first VIB Rouge store event! They welcomed us with nice fruity drinks and had a bunch of brands representatives in the store. Here’s what I got:
Glam Glow masks – supermud and thirstymud
Dr Dennis Gross brightening solution (thanks to talking to the rep!)
L’Occitane shower oil
Bite – Mauvember lipstick
MUFE mattifying primer
Nars concealer (the stick one)
Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner / Tarte double ended liner brush
Laura Mercier eye artist palette
Tarte holiday blush palette
My bank account is now suffering!!
I’ve always wanted to try the Glam Glow masks but they are so pricey… Maybe you are right to pick them in the sample version!
