Sephora’s annual VIB Sale starts this tomorrow, Friday, April 20 to Monday, April 23 and it’s a big deal (pun intended)! VIB members will save 15% off EVERYTHING in store. If you’re not a a VIB, don’t worry – Beauty Insider members can also save 10% off everything in store. It’s the best time of year to stock up on all those beauty products you love or perhaps buy those “wish list” items you’ve been longing to try. The timing honestly couldn’t have worked out better, as I’ve recently run out of a few of my favourites that need repurchasing. Since I love to share with you guys and love a good deal, here’s my Sephora VIB Wish List! These are the items that I’ve been scoping out and wanting to try along with some of my all time favourites! You’ll probably notice a trend in the makeup and skin care I’ve chosen… lots of products promising even skin tone, bronzing and glowing skin. Can you tell I’m craving some warmer weather? Each of the products are linked so you can easily add these favourites into your shopping cart too! Happy shopping everyone!
I mentioned this in my 6 Makeup Brushes that You Need blog post as being my most favourite beauty tool! If used daily, the Beauty Blender should be replaced every three to four months. So what better time to stock up on this magic sponge than when it’s on sale!!
Glam Glow is a brand known for their masks and skincare treatments. After seeing their products over the internet, I decided to give this mask a try. Regularly priced at $75, I’ll admit that I was hesitant to buy this… but I did anyways! After using this mask, my skin did exactly what the product claimed to do! My skin was smooth, bright and overall it looked refreshed! BUT we all know I love a good sale, right? Well If you’re interested in trying out this and other Glam Glow Masks, then this value set is going to be the best bang for your buck. It’s $50 for 6 travel sized masks but this weekend you can save an extra 15% on top of that! Major score!
This has been on my radar for a while now! I mentioned in my Top 6 Makeup Products You Need In Your Life post, that I don’t wear foundation as a part of my daily makeup routine. I much prefer spot concealing as it allows the good parts of my skin to show through instead of being camouflaged under foundation. With that being said, I’ve been on the hunt for a one-step product for the summer that will provide some coverage, SPF and that’s quick and easy to apply. The IT Cosmetics CC Cream has come highly recommended and I can see why! It has an SPF of 50 (yes 50!), contains anti-aging skin care ingredients and it gives full coverage but supposedly doesn’t dry out your skin So if you’re looking for a product that will do all the things for your skin, this could be it! I’m really excited about this one.
I received one of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blushes as a Birthday gift from Sephora one year and it’s quickly become one of my favourites. The blushes are all 12 hour wearing, are soft in texture and blend like a dream. I have the shade “Paaarty” which is a rose colour that has a satin finish. It looks beautiful on the skin and really does last all day long!
I had to double check to make sure that this was the right bronzer because they’ve changed their packaging since I bought it last. I guess that goes to show that this product has lasted me a long time!! Not only does this bronzer smell AMAZING (it’s made with and smells like chocolate and I literally want to eat it every time I put it on), but it does an amazing job at bringing colour back into my skin! I use this bronzer everyday and it provides a nice tan/bronze look without my skin appearing orange. Because it’s matte, it would also make for a great contour powder, it that’s something that you’re interested in!
This is another product that I’ve been longing to try because it sounds too good to be true! As I’m getting older, I’ve begun to realise the importance of sun protection! But the problem I have is that while I want to protect my skin from the sun I still crave that glow and and sun kissed skin – especially on my face! Who else feels like they need to wear less makeup whenever they have a tan?? Here’s a little blurb I grabbed from Sephoras website… “This daily use, sunless tan, anti-aging face serum gives you a year-round, natural-looking radiance. An antioxidant-rich blend of argan oil, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and botanical extracts leaves skin feeling smooth, with a hydrated and glowing look. The streak-free, transfer-free, gradual tan lasts up to three days and is great for use alone or added to your everyday face moisturizer for buildable luminance. It’s infused with a natural pina-coco scent to cover the telltale self-tan aroma.” UHM… can we just say that I NEED THIS TANNER IN MY LIFE! Sounds amazing… and it will be going in my shopping cart.. thanks!
I’m a huge Origins fan and have been using a few of their skin care products for years. One of my favourites is their GinSing Refreshing Eye Cream. It instantly brightens up your under eyes which is a big help for us tired moms! Origins also has a value set that includes 4 of their products that promote clear skin. The Clear Skin Go-To’s Set includes a face wash, mask, spot treatment and my favourite night cream! It’s a great value at $58 and that’s not including the additional 15% off!
When it comes to eye shadows, buying them in palettes is the best value! The Naked Pallete’s are great because they contain a mix of neutral shades that are both matte and shimmery. They have a collection of palletes to choose from, but my personal favourite is the Naked 2 Pallete. I find that the colour selection is more wearable for everyone and love that they have a matte highlighting shade, blending colour and a matte black. It’s one of my favourites and for the price point, you simply can’t go wrong!
Mothers Day is coming up and this is a perfect opportunity to buy the mom in your life their favourite fragrance! Sephora sells some nice gift sets, some of which are limited edition which make them extra special! The other nice thing about gift sets is that they sometimes have multiple fragrances inside so that you don’t have to commit to just one!
Last but certainly not least! This is another wish list item that I have yet to try but have heard amazing things about! This day cream is green in colour which helps combat any redness and discolouration in your skin. No.. it doesn’t turn you into Shrek, instead it evens out your skin tone leaving you with a perfect complexion without having to put on any makeup! Sounds amazing, right? Well it gets better! It even has an SPF 30 making it perfect for those summer days ahead where you want to protect your skin from those UV rays but not wear makeup! It is a bit pricey at $65 a jar BUT remember, this sale is the perfect time to buy those wish list items that are a bit more expensive!
