Hallelujah, it’s Sephora’s #VIBSale time again. As if you needed an excuse to pick up more luxe beauty items, Sephora now tempts us with that biannual 20% off. As every beauty maven out there knows, ‘higher’ end makeup…RARELY goes on sale. And so when it does, the herds come flocking in! Here is a roundup of holiday beauty and makeup must-haves to consider in your VIB sale haul this season!
Truth be told, I’ve been waiting for Sephora’s VIB Sale to come around to stock up on
boring basic beauty essentials, that it actually makes my mouth drool to think of new beauty bits to devour in the holiday season. I mean, honestly – who gets excited about repurchasing setting powder (Laura Mercier) and concealer (Tarte & NARS)? They’re basic mundane products that hardly get a pulse, let alone blood boiling. Concealer and powder are like the shopping equivalent to toilet paper and toothpaste. #Boring!
As my mind wanders over the idea of more ‘exciting’ shopping thrills, I gravitate towards a new heavenly lipstick. Dolce and Gabbana lipstick has especially caught my eye, with their luxe ‘matte’ red range…that I can only dream is as beautiful as the beauty looks they ship down the runway each season. It’s also a great time to pick up luxe beauty staples like YSL‘s Baby Doll mascara (a dream!) and Dior‘s Studio Star foundation (miracle skin!).
Laura Mercier‘s body creme gift set is also a GREAT buy…and would make as the perfect Christmas gift on its own, or broken out as many little gifts. The Almond Milk Body Creme is basically heaven in a jar, and I find myself lathering that on when I’m most stressed — and in need of aroma dessert. (Aka, dessert…without the calories.) L’Occitane hand lotions are also a fabulous stocking stuffer around the holidays. After all? Nothing says winter weather like cold temperatures and chapped skin!
In truth, there’s no shortage of great beauty buys at the Sephora VIB Sale. It’s just matter of facing reality with your bank balance and making the best decision for your wallet. I do think, though, that everyone deserves a nice treat now and then. What do you fancy?
