The sale is exclusive to Beauty Insiders only:
Sephora’s annual Spring VIB Sale is exclusive to the members of their Beauty Insider reward program. The Beauty Insider program has three tiers – Beauty Insider, VIB, and VIB Rouge.
This is the membership tier that everyone starts off as. There is no yearly spend requirement and all you need to do is sign up with your email either in-store or online.
With every purchase, you’ll accumulate points to work towards the next tier level and that you can redeem for gifts.
Members must spend $350 in a calendar year to reach VIB status and must spend $350 each calendar year to maintain their status.
When you have achieved VIB status, you accumulate points at 1.25 points per $1, are able to redeem points for full-size products, and so much more!
Members must spend $1000 in a calendar year to reach VIB Rouge status and must spend $1000 each calendar year to maintain their status.
When you have reached VIB Rouge, you earn points at a rate of 1.5 points per $1, get free flash 2-day shipping, have early access to products and events, are able to redeem points for full-size products, AND can redeem points for a $100 reward.

When is the Sephora VIB Spring 2019 Sale?
Although the official dates of the Sephora Spring 2019 Sale have not been announced yet, we can make an educated guess on when it might be.
Last year, the sale went live for VIB and VIB Rouge members on Friday, April 13th, and on Friday, April 20th for Beauty Insiders.
In 2017, the very first day of the sale (for VIB Rouge only) was on Tuesday, April 18th.
The first day of the sale in 2016 for VIB Rouge members, was on Thursday, April 7th.
And in 2015, the sale begun on Tuesday, April 12th.
Based on the previous years’ dates, it’s hard to predict exactly when the Sephora Spring Sale will start, since the sale has never begun on the exact same date.
BUT, we do know that it’s going to happen sometime in April, and it’ll likely be around the 2nd or 3rd week of the month.
I will update this section of the post once it’s been announced! So, be sure to bookmark this page and keep coming back for updates!
What is the Sephora VIB Spring 2019 Sale?
15% off EVERYTHING for VIB and VIB Rouge
Based off last year’s sale, during the first week of the sale, VIB Rouge members will get 15% off everything online and in-store.
Starting the second week of the sale, VIB members will gain access to the sale and also enjoy 15% off everything online and in-store.
10% off EVERYTHING for Beauty Insiders
Starting the third week of the sale, Beauty Insiders gain access to the sale and get 10% off everything online and in-store.

How you do get your discount?
Sephora will typically send you a discount code prior to the start of the sale – the date dependent on your membership status. So, keep an eye on your email for that!
I will also be updating this post with the Sephora Spring 2019 Sale discount codes for each membership level as they become public, so you can always check back here!
Does the Sephora VIB Spring 2019 Sale include anything else?
YES! Well, possibly.
In the past, Sephora has held special in-store events during the sale, such as meeting brand reps and learning about products directly from the brand.
There have also been mini-makeovers, facials, demonstrations, and all kinds of other fun stuff!
And if you’re a VIB Rouge member, based on last year, you’ll be able to bring a friend to the store and your friend will also get 15% off! You may also both get a free Sephora goodie bag.

So, are you ready for the Sephora VIB Spring 2019 Sale?!
I know I sure am! I haven’t bought anything from Sephora so far in 2019 and I’m actually DYING. I already have my cart filled with things I want to try and things I need to stock up on!
Here are some of my picks on new things to try and things to stock up on during the Sephora Spring 2019 Sale:
*prices in red reflect a 15% discount
Try something new:
Laura Mercier – Flawless Lumiere Radiance Perfecting Foundation |
This foundation was released in the last few months and I’ve been eyeing it ever since I first saw it!
Lots of people love the Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation and I also thought that one was pretty good, but I was ecstatic to see a radiant version released!
Dior – Dior Forever Skin 24h* Wear Radiant Perfection Skin-Caring Foundation |
Dior makes AMAZING foundations. The Backstage Face & Body Foundation and the Diorskin Forever Foundation are both such great foundations that I would probably try any foundation Dior releases.
This foundation comes in both matte and radiant finishes, but I’m all about that glow so you know I have my eye on the radiant version!
Hourglass – Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation |
This has got to be one of the biggest foundation releases that happened recently. Because practically everyone LOVES the stick version, we were all very excited when Hourglass released a liquid version.
Reviews haven’t been that stellar from the few YouTube reviews I’ve watched, but I love the stick version so much that I’m still interested in trying the liquid version out myself.
Fenty Beauty – Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder |
Can you believe I still haven’t tried this powder? The beauty community has been raving about this powder like it’s some sort of miracle powder, so I’m dying to get my hands on it!
Fenty Beauty – Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer |
Just like the powder, the beauty community has given this concealer amazing reviews. I’m not one to switch out my beloved Tarte Shape Tape that often, but I’m totally going to give this one a shot.
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Riviera Eyeshadow Palette |
I haven’t tried an ABH eyeshadow palette since the Modern Renaissance Palette! So, I think I’m definitely due to treat myself to this palette. ;)
This palette has both neutral shades and bright colors, so it’s perfect for those who want to start experimenting with pops of color.
Urban Decay – Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette |
This palette definitely could not be left out of this post! The Urban Decay Naked palettes were one of the first products to make eyeshadow palettes a “thing” for consumers and not for professional makeup artists.
The Naked Reloaded Palette is supposed to be the new and improved version of the original Naked Palette, which is now discontinued.
Things to stock up on:
Bobbi Brown – Vitamin Enriched Face Base |
I ALWAYS pick up a jar of this every time Sephora has a sale. It’s my #1 all-time favorite primer that I use every single day. I’ve been using it for about 2 ½ years and I don’t think I’ll ever stop!
It hydrates and preps the skin for foundation so well, especially if you have dry skin. Read my review on the Vitamin Enriched Face Base.
Tatcha – The Silk Canvas Protective Primer |
Every single day, I apply this primer under the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, and they seriously make the best primer combination.
This one smooths out the skin giving it a seamless appearance, while the Bobbi Brown one hydrates the skin. I think I’ll be using this combo forever!
NARS – Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation |
This is my favorite foundation right now. I’m almost out of my second bottle, so I definitely need to pick up another one!
It’s a full-coverage that leaves the most beautiful natural finish. This sale is the perfect time to grab a backup of your favorite foundation, and it’s this one for me.
Laura Mercier – Translucent Setting Powder (Regular or Glow) |
The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder has always been a favorite of mine because it sets your makeup in place so well and it leaves a beautiful finish to the skin.
Recently, I’ve been IN LOVE with the Glow version of this powder. It has tiny reflective particles in it that make you look so radiant!
Drunk Elephant – C-Firma Day Serum |
This sale is the perfect time to restock on your favorite high-cost skincare products. I’ve been using this serum for almost a year now and I can’t live without it!
Drunk Elephant – T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum |
Just like the C-Firma Day Serum above, I’ll no doubt be re-stocking on this serum! This is my daily night serum and at $90 a bottle, any discount is nice!
In general, if you’ve been curious about any Drunk Elephant products, but have been hesitant to try them because of the price, this sale is the perfect time to pick up one of their sets (like The Littles set) for a discounted price. The hype is totally warranted. I love so many of their products.
I could honestly keep listing products for days! I’ve been trying to narrow down my list for this sale, but I think I just need to accept the fact that this Sephora VIB Spring Sale is going to leave a massive dent in my bank account LOL.
But, like I mentioned in the beginning, Sephora is a participant of Ebates! So, at least I’ll be able to get some of my money back!
