2015 sephora VIB sale I howsweeteats.com

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.
