Sephora VIB Sale

April 17, 2015



The Sephora VIB sale is back! It runs until April 21st this year. If you're unaware, if you're a VIB + VIB Rouge member you save 15% of your entire purchase and you can use your code as many times during the sale. I received my code last week and placed my order as soon as it allowed (Sunday morning) since last year (November) was a crazy one! Everything was sold out (Holidays partly to blame, I'm sure) and I skipped it. Sometime in March I found out about this one and decided to wait to order things I needed to replace until the sale.
Now,  I received my box yesterday but I decided to post ASAP because the sale is still going on, in case I inspire some unnecessary purchases. ^_~


If you've seen a couple of my Instagram posts, you're aware that I'm in love with Bite Beauty lip products. So rich and moisturizing and cruelty free! I was looking for a truly moisturizing lip balm, I have the Crème de Rose by Dior and besides smelling like a meadow, I don't think it's worth the $28. Maybe because I have fuller lips, I need something more moisturizing. I came across this one, so many raving reviews and I did trust the brand. I'm not the girl that will try on any lip product in store, no matter how many times it's cleaned, I rather take the plunge...and I did. I applied it in the afternoon, went to the movies, had dinner and my lips were still not needing a second application! VERY much worth it. ( Bite Beauty- Agave Lip Mask).

This is one of the items that I needed to replace. After reading over a dozen reviews on Sephora, I saw many suggested getting the acne brush for the Clarisonic even if you have normal skin. I went ahead and did that and actually loved the acne brush more that the normal one that came with my Clarisonic. The second one I saw being raved about was the Radiance ones so I decided to get the twin pack to play with.  (Clarisonic - Replacement Brush)


My Mom has used Sheseido, exclusively, for twenty-something years. Growing up she used (still does) this sunscreen (the regular one, blue bottle)... I started adding sunscreen to my routine two years ago. I trusted her opinion and went with this Shiseido. I have normal skin so I stick with the regular but Sephora was out of stock and decided to just use the oil free one. It has just as many good reviews.  (Sheseido Oil Free UV protector).

 Another brand I've been currently obsessed with is Nails Inc. I purchased their NailKale Superfood Base coat and the Nail Kale color in watermelon peach. Seriously, my polish lasts a full week even after tons of dishes, cleaning, and all that jazz. Definitely worth the investment. I use Out the Door top coat but since Nails Inc doesn't disappoint, I decided to try their top coat!  (Nails Inc 45 Sec Top Coat).



For the last year I've been using Korres Greek Yoghurt moisturizing face cream + Korres Greek Yoghurt advanced sleeping facial. (whoa, that's a mouthful!) I had this cleanser in the "items you may like" right before checking out some time ago. I added to my wishlist and figured now is the time! (Greek Yoghurt Cream Cleanser - Korres)




Last year, for my Mom's birthday, we went to Sephora to 'browse'. (HA!) I ended getting both Nirvana fragrances by Elizabeth and James. I got the rollerballs to give both scents a real try. I LOVE both so so much. I actually ran out of the peony (white) one first. After removing it and adding it to my cart so many times I decided to go for it. I wish I would've gotten the black one as well... but the sale is not over and I foresee the black one on my doorstep soon. ^_~ (Elizabeth and James - Nirvana)

This is another item that I just needed to restock on. I alternate between this mascara and the Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte. I have pretty long, curled, lashes but if using the wrong, clumpy, mascara it looks like I have two long lashes. lol.. these two work great for me.  (Better than Sex mascara - Too Faced)


Yet another restock item. I love this Anastasia brow wiz for quick, I-don't-have-a-lot-of-time, moments. I alternate between the pencil, the powder duo and the dip brow pomade. (Brow Wiz -Anastasia)

I love Nails Inc, I don't care in the least for Victoria Beckham. I saw this duo everywhere when it came out but I don't like red and the 'tan' looked blah so I dismissed it. Then I started seeing (only) this color all over the beauty bloggers + Istagrammers I follow, saying what a wonderful shade of creme and how its not like anything else..  So here we are!  (Victoria, Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc).



Sometime in March I was getting my creep on on Kat Von D's Instagram account. I saw a sneak peek for the the Shade + Light Eye palette and that was the first thing I knew I NEEDED to get once the sale came around. I have her Shade + Light contour palette and it's amazing! Everything blends so beautifully, not cakey or powdery.  I also have her Innerstellar eyeshadow palette and, again, everything applies like butter. I knew that this would be the same. (Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette - Kat Von D)

I started looking through my wishlist and this was one of the oldest items in it. The price is the reason I never considered it but it's something I look at once in a while.. Plus, Laura Mercier is a brand that goes on my face daily, so it's trustworthy. It was near my birthday so I figured 'what the heck!'... and OMG... It smells AMAZING! It's not an overwhelming sweet smell. It's pricey but the jar is a decent size. I now need* the body crème. (Crème de Pistachio Scrub - Laura Mercier).


This thing is magic.. I put it on last night and it has such a sweet scent and it's hydrating without it being greasy (like most body butters). This is the vanilla apricot scent and it's truly wonderful!  (Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter -Josie Maran)


Alright, that's all folks! 

Actually, I may get a couple of other things before the sale is over and if  I do, it'll be up here!

I hope you guys enjoy this post and happy shopping!
