I think it’s fair to say that the Sephora VIB sale is one of my favorite sales of the year. It comes around twice yearly and I look forward to it each time. Being obsessed with skincare and makeup is an expensive habit. So this sale really helps to take the pressure off of my wallet!

This time around the sale is running November 3-6th for VIB Rouge and November 10-15th for BOTH VIB Rouge and VIB customers.

Personally, as a Rouge member I am thrilled to hear that I can get two rounds of shopping in. Sometimes things sell out or I forget something that I really needed. During the sale this spring the new dry shampoo that I really wanted sold out during the Rouge portion of the sale but came back for the VIB portion.

I decided not to go crazy this year for the sale and just to stock up on things that I was running out of. So right now that means moisturizer and foundation for me! I’ve rounded up what I’ve purchased (this time and previously) and what I have on my wish list and wrapped it up all together in this pretty little post for you to shop! I, for one, love reading what other people are loving from the sale so I can add more to my list.

My Must Haves from the Sephora VIB Sale

1 & 2 – This sale is a great time to experiment with expensive skincare items. I am completely out of eye cream right now and needed something a little different. So I’ve decided to try something new, along with a new nighttime moisturizer. Naturally I can’t say much about either of these because I haven’t tried them out. But reviews seemed promising!

3 – This is my favorite dry shampoo ever. I keep going back and forth between this one and the Drybar whipped, but I think the regular one is winning that battle. You can read more about my quest to find the perfect dry shampoo here.

4 – I’ve been hunting for a new foundation for a while now and I think I’m in love with this one! I’m probably the only person on the face of the earth that doesn’t like wearing thick and heavy foundations in the fall and winter. So I’ve been looking for something easy, light and more on the natural side. I got a sample of this Make Up For Ever foundation in my Sephora Play subscription box and I was pleasantly surprised! It goes on great and is an awesome build-able coverage. Not to mention that they also sent me the perfect match for my skin because of their amazing color IQ tool.

5 – I don’t need to say to much about this. This is my holy grail eyebrow pencil and I always stock up when the sale comes around!

6 – This cutie little palette is awesome to have on hand to create basic looks. You can go from natural to smoky in one tiny little package! The pigmentation is amazing and the size is perfect for travel.

7 – This is another item that I almost always purchase during the sale! Glamglow is expensive and the 20% off is a great excuse to grab more of my favorite mask. It’s seriously a cult favorite for a reason!

8 – No explanation needed. I love this stuff!

9 – This moisturizer is seriously amazing! I have oily, acne prone skin and this glides on and provides so much moisture without feeling sticky and gross. And it doesn’t break me out at all! So it’s a win-win!

10 – This is another sample that I got from my Sephora Play subscription. I didn’t expect to like this primer at all– but I’m loving it! I’m almost completely out of my deluxe sample right now! It’s a great glowy primer that has a consistency similar to the Benefit Porefessional so it fills in pores.

1 – Way back when I got a sample of this stuff and I was hooked. I finished the it all up and when to purchase it but couldn’t pull the trigger on a moisturizer that was over $50. So here it sits in my wish list. One of these days I’ll buy it!

2 – I’m obsessed with Drybar. OBSESSED. I used this blow dryer at a friends house and instantly felt like a professional. I’m not, I can barely blow out my hair properly. But this blow dryer gave me all the confidence in the universe. I didn’t know a blow dryer could do that- so naturally I need to buy it.

3 – My secret wish is to be a Youtube beauty sensation. But I am nowhere near that talented, so I’ll just lust over palettes and products that they say I need. Like this ABH palette!

4 – This isn’t a budget breaker but I decided not to buy this set this year. I love snagging these mascara samplers so I can try something new! Last year I found lots of new favorites this way!

5 – Remember when this was all over Youtube and Instagram? Me too. So naturally I want to try it.

6 – I’ve been super curious about trying the Drunk Elephant line ever since I tried a sample of this moisturizer. It was super thick, but still managed to make my skin feel amazing! So that means the whole line is great, right?! These sets are a great way to try some new products out.

7 – I just spent about half an hour discussing this deal with my sister. We have both been lusting after the Naked palettes forever but never purchased any. In walks this deal. We’ve decided that we’re going to split the cost of the set and each get 2 palettes! After the 20% the set is $148 so we’re getting a nice little deal. Have 3 friends that want to split the set? GO FOR THIS DEAL. Everyone wins!
