It's Here! Sephora VIB 20% Off Sale is Here! And I've Got My Shopping List Ready | Information & Shopping List Ideas

November 7, 2013

It's finally here!  The annual Sephora VIB sale.  To most of our surprise, the sale discount has gotten bigger and better.  This year, Sephora is giving their Very Important Beauty Insiders (VIBs) a 20% off discount on EVERYTHING (from Nov 7 to 11)!  Yay!  A VIB is a Beauty Insider (BI) who spend more than $350 in a calendar year.  You can shop in store or online if you are a VIB.  Also, VIBs are provided with a link to give out to one of their friends who doesn't already have the discount; the VIB friend can use enjoy a one-time discount as well.  In the past, the BI sale starts a week later than the VIB sale, so even if you're not a VIB, don't worry, you may get an email soon!

Alright, so let's get the madness started... I have already posted a Shopping List Idea v1 last month, but my list have grown since then lol... So this is my shopping cart before I condensed it.

Pretty glorious, I know... but I don't have all the money in the world so here's what I'm actually getting...

FORMULA X FOR SEPHORA Xplosives Top Coats in Thunder
ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil Foundation SPF 15
ELLIS FAAS Creamy Lips in L104 Deep Fuchsia
HOURGLASS N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil
Hourglass Foundation/Blush Brush No. 2

Now this is more achievable...

It's funny how my entire order is composed of 3 brands: Formula X, Hourglass, and Ellis Faas.  Sadly, this VIB sale is within the same period of IMATS Toronto, so my budget is slim, but I think when I go in store, I would get some of these eliminated items from the online order...

Tarte Off The Cuff Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette & Bracelet
Origins Skincare Must Haves
Bite Beauty The Lip Kit
CLINIQUE Black Honey Beauty
L'OCCITANE Hand Cream Soirée
BALENCIAGA Florabotanica Gift Set

deborah lippmann Big Bang
NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection Limited Edition One Night Stand Cheek Palette
Kat Von D Spellbinding Lipstick Set

Fresh Sugar Baby
Ciaté Nail Lab
Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Trio

Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Bold Blush

Yes, I'm just doing my first order here and there will be an in store one as well... Don't judge me... lol...  Anyhow, let me know what you guys end up getting and I hope my shopping list idea might have helped you if you're undecided!  If you still need more help, you can check out my previous post or Sephora's Giftopia page.  Happy Shopping!

Until next time,

x Rica


  1. Hi Rica, these are great picks for the sale! I didn't make VIB status this year but treated myself to the tarte blush palette anyways. I think the sale being so close to IMATS is a concern for a lot people as well. Hope to see you at IMATS!

  2. I've decided to skip the VIB sale this year :( My budget for IMATS doesn't fit with this on top of it. I'm so envious of what you're getting though! It's pretty much what I had in mind for my list ;)

  3. awww :(... It's ok! Blow it all off at IMATS!

  4. Thanks Fannie. I think Beauty Insider might have the same sale coming up soon... We will see :). I will definitely be at IMATS, come say hi if you see me :D

  5. You have selected some great stuff as your picks especially the hourglass brush looks amazing

  6. i'm looking forward to another sephora sale. great deal. ^^
