There are only two sales every year that I genuinely save for and look forward to - the Nordstrom anniversary sale, and Sephora's beauty insider sale. Sephora doesn't do sales often, so each year I make sure to grab my favorite holy grail products because they're rarely discounted. Now this event isn't to be mistaken for the Sephora Friends and Family sale, which used to be open to everyone and now is only for true friends and family (you have to know an employee that works at Sephora in order to get a one-time use code).

Here are the details you need, keeping in mind that if you have rouge status, the sale began last weekend:

Sale is online and in-store

Rouge members get 20% off 11/2 - 11/5 with code ROUGEBONUS

VIB members get 20% off 11/9 - 11/12 with code VIBBONUS

Beauty Insiders get 15% off 11/16 - 11/19 with code BIBONUS

Got all that? It's a bit confusing with all the date changes but everybody gets a discount relative to their status at Sephora. Below, I've compiled a list of my personal recommendations. It's a pretty comprehensive look into the products that I've tried and tested over the years, and that I keep going back to time and again.

Tatcha silk canvas primer: You can read my review on this primer here, but essentially this is THE product I wish everyone would try. Yes, everyone.

Kate Somerville exfolikate: Contains lactic acid and fruit enzymes to slough off dead skin cells. I use it twice per week. Pricey, but it's consistently named as best on the market from pretty much everyone in the industry.

Loccitane shower oil: Smells divine and is ultra moisturizing. I love shaving my legs with it.

Alterna caviar replenishing hair masque: I'm convinced this masque is the reason why my hair feels as healthy as it does. A little goes a long way, and I concentrate it on my ends.

Origins GinZing eye cream: This pink eye cream contains caffeine to help de-puff, brighten, and conceal dark circles.

Make Up For Ever ultra HD foundation: The only foundation brand I've used for years...probably almost a decade! All of their foundations are top rate, but the HD is perfect for photography. In this day and age, when are we not being photographed?

Charlotte Tilbury pillow talk lip cheat liner and lipsticks: Read my thoughts here, but Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong. It's quickly become a guilty pleasure.

Becca glow lip gloss: I'm not as big on lip gloss as I was during my twenties, but I've reached for this one every single day since buying it over Summer. Non-sticky, comfortable formula, peppermint scented.

NARS velvet matte lip crayons: My favorite shade is "sex machine" which is a beautiful mauve tone with very slight shimmer.

Laneige lip sleeping mask: Makes lips baby soft and smooth. Wear overnight as a true mask, or use it as a regular balm whenever your lips need some TLC.

Glow Recipe watermelon sleep mask: Good for all skin types and literally makes skin glow.


There are a couple new-to-me products I'm interested in as well but I'm still on the fence. I'll let you know what I end up getting.

I hope you try some of these if you haven't already, they are too good to pass up! Happy Halloween and happy shopping 💋

  3. What a great, detailed post about this sale! Being off insta I don't hear about sales as much (which is a good thing overall) so I appreciate posts like this! Thanks for sharing your favorites...I'll definitely be browsing for deals on a few of mines.
