This post talks about the Sephora VIB Appreciation Event that is already over. HOWEVER, the FALL VIB SALE IS STILL HAPPENING at the end of OCTOBER and early NOVEMBER.

NEW POST with details on the OCTOBER/November VIB sale HERE.

Hi, friends! As you may have heard, Hawaii is currently under a Hurricane Warning as Hurricane Lane is projected to pass just under the islands. Since I work for an electric company, it's been pretty crazy trying to prepare for the worst case scenario. However, that did not stop me from writing this post!

You may have heard the rumors that Sephora is having a sale soon...and it's true! Sephora recently announced that they will be having a VIB Appreciation Event starting on August 24th. Isn't that amazing news for all Sephora Beauty Insiders?! In addition to the sale, Sephora has also revamped their reward system so members with VIB and VIB Rouge status now earn points at a faster rate than those with Beauty Insider status. I wonder if this sale will take the place of the VIB Sale they normally have in November? I sure hope not!


Okay, enough with the talking, let's get into the sale!

Sephora VIB Appreciation Sale Details:

VIB ROUGE: 20% off with the code YESROUGE | 8/24/2018 - 9/3/2018

VIB: 15% off with the code YESVIB | 8/30/2018 - 9/3/2018

Beauty Insider: 10% off with the code YESINSIDER | 8/30/18 - 9/3/18


There are SOOO many things I want to buy. This sale can quickly escalate into a huge hit to my credit card, but Sephora has only 2 sales like this a year (normally), so now's the time to buy! If you're having trouble deciding what to buy at this year's Sephora Beauty Insider Event, hopefully this post can give you some ideas!


Things to stock up on:

drunk elephant c-firma

Drunk Elephant - C-Firma Day Serum ($80)

I first bought this during the Spring VIB Sale and it changed my life. I ran out and I have been putting off buying another one because of how expensive it is! But, now is definitely the time to buy another!

drunk elephant tlc framboos

Drunk Elephant -

TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum ($90)

This serum has also changed my life and I also have been putting off buying another one because it's so expensive. Definitely picking one up during this sale!

tatcha the silk canvas

Tatcha - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer ($52)

Honestly the best smoothing primer I've ever tried. I use this almost every day and I'm almost out!

bobbi brown vitamin enriched face base

Bobbi Brown - Vitamin Enriched Face Base ($60)

And this is the best hydrating primer I've ever tried. I've been using it for over 2 years and I don't think I'll ever stop! Full review here.


Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Definer ($23)

No doubt an essential in any makeup routine is the brow. Now is great time to stock up on your favorite brow product - the Brow Definer for me.

laura mercier translucent setting powder

Laura Mercier - Translucent Setting Powder ($38)

This powder is a staple in the beauty industry and for good reason! It never lets me down. I've gone through at least 5 of these since I started using it, so ya girl definitely needs to stock up.


NARS - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation ($49)

This sale is a great time to buy a backup of your favorite foundation - something you use all the time and will definitely repurchase. For me, it's this foundation. Full review here.

nars radiant creamy concealer

Nars - Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30)

Similar to foundation, concealer is another product you'll definitely want to pick up your favorite of. This is one of my favorites for over 2 years now!

kat von d tattoo liner

Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner ($20)

If you're an avid liquid liner wearer, be sure to grab one of these! It's always great to have a backup because you never know when one of these are done! Worst part about black packaging, for sure.

urban decay all nighter spray

URBAN DECAY - All nighter Setting Spray ($32)

The holy grail of all setting sprays. I have backups for days of these LOL. It's something I use every single day, so why not? Best time to stock up is during a sale!


new things to try:

laura mercier translucent powder glow

Laura Mercier - Translucent Setting Powder Glow ($38)

I'll be honest - I totally screamed when I saw this product. I'm so excited that Laura Mercier released a radiant version of their popular setting powder. I've been all about the glow these days!



Backstage Foundation ($40)

I've heard such good things about this new foundation from Dior and look at that price! That's so affordable for Dior. I'm dying to try this out.

too faced born this way concealer

Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer ($29)

I can't remember the last time a concealer was hyped up as much as this one. Probably since Tarte Shape Tape? Although I can't remember if that was hyped up before the release. Anyway, the hype is enough to make me want to try this. And you get A LOT (0.5 oz) of product in the bottle.

jouer highlighter

Jouer - Powder Highlighter ($24)

I've heard really great things about this highlighter and about Jouer products in general, but it was never a super accessible brand (especially living in Hawaii). So, I'm really excited they're now in Sephora!

abh soft glam palette

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Palette ($42)

I'm pretty late to the party with this palette, but once you own a handful of palettes (like I do), it seems like you probably own all of the colors in any given palette. I haven't bought a luxury palette in a while though, so I'm kind of itching to buy one. And this would be the one.

ysl all hours stick foundation

Yves Saint Laurent - All Hours Stick Foundation ($48)

Is it just me or does it seem like stick foundations are popping up everywhere? I'm not complaining, though! I love stick foundations and it's YSL. Like, no-brainer.


Huda Beauty - Easy Bake loose Powder ($34)

Huda Beauty is probably one of the most hyped up brands in makeup and this powder is no different. I've heard mixed reviews about this powder, but I'm definitely interested in trying it.

beautyblender bounce foundation

beautyblender - Bounce Liquid Whip Foundation

I'll be honest, when I first saw this, I had to do a double-take. Like what?! Beautyblender is starting to do makeup now? Major props to the brand for making that crossover and I'm sure this product has piqued many people's interest.

marc jacobs coconut dew drops

Marc Jacobs - Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($44)

I'm totally going to bite the bullet and buy this. I've been wanting it for so long, but I just couldn't see myself spending that much. But, I can't hold out any longer. I mainly want this to mix into my foundation to make everything way more glowy.

hourglass ambient bronzer

Hourglass - Ambient Lighting Bronzer ($50)

The popular finish for bronzer is usually matte, but with the glowy skin trend that is still going strong, an illuminating bronzer is worth a shot!


I could honestly keep listing items for days, but I'd probably list at least half of the store LOL. So, these are my top picks for the Sephora VIB Sale! My wallet is going to cry after this sale. 

Luckily, Sephora is a participating store on, so I can get some cash back on my purchase! The usual rate of cash back is 4% for Sephora, but it sometimes increases so fingers crossed it does during the sale! You can read more about Ebates in my review here and you can get a $10 bonus after making your first qualifying purchase with my referral link here.

And that's it for my Sephora VIB Sale beauty picks! Happy Shopping!
