Sephora VIB Sale Fall 2016 │My Picks

Sephora VIB Sale 2016 My Picks

Yes! It’s finally that time of the year; On Friday, November 4th, Sephora VIB Sale is starting for VIB Rouge members and I can’t wait…


In detail:


November 4 to November 7, receive 20% OFF on all in-store and online purchases with code 20ROUGE.

No brand exclusion. The discount also applies to items on the Sale page.

No limit! Buy whatever you want and how many you want, you’ll still get 20% OFF on any purchases you make during this event.


November 11 through the 14th, receive 20% off all on in-store and online purchases with code 20VIB.

No brand exclusion. The discount also applies to items on the Sale page.

Also unlimited! Just buy what you need and you’ll get the 20% OFF…

Note: Sadly, you don’t get a 20% discount if you buy gift cards (a 25$ gift card will still cost 25$)!


There are no brand exclusions during this event, but the discount cannot be applied to gift cards


This is what’s in my cart (at the moment) and when I look at this picture, I’m asking myself:”Where is the old Ingrid, for Pete’s sake?”. There is only 3 makeup items! I’m speechless… If my memory serves me right, the last two years, my haul was 90% makeup so what happened? Well, I’m not really attracted to all those holiday sets anymore (this girl got burned with disputable quality in the past) and this past year, I witnessed what good skincare can do for your skin.

However, my credit card (and BeardMan) will probably not agree with my choices… The first one will bleed after buying all these products, the second one will see is soap and hair gel relegated to some drawer or shelf in a room somewhere, thinking of a closet or even the garage looks like an attractive location at this point…

1.Nudestix Nude(art)ist Magnetic Eye Box Set

I already own two of these sticks and I love them. They are so easy to apply and I often wear them alone as a wash of colour on my eyelids. A dream product for all of us, NUDE lovers. Amazing value since each stick is full size!

2.Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen (Ivory)

I read so many great reviews about this tinted moisturizer. Time to see for myself what the fuss is all about!

3.Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist

I need a new hydrating toner and I chose this one as a wild guess, since I don’t know anything about this product. Previously, I used Caudalie Moisturizing Toner which I really liked but being the beauty junkie that I am, I want to try something new. Any suggestions for another one I should try instead???

4.Shiseido Facial Cotton

I have to thank my friend Stashy for introducing me to Shiseido Facial Cottons. Trying these means that you will be a customer for life! Whatever brand I use other than Shiseido, I feel I’m scraping my eye area. Please add these to your cart and you will thank me later.

5.L’Occitane Hand Cream (Shea Butter)

This hand cream is for my mother as she swears by it. She must have tried almost every brand on the market but L’Occitane remains the favorite.

Side Note: Am I the only one who never uses hand creams???

6.Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit

This a repurchase as I LOVE these two products. The hype is real my friends: these two products combined have helped keep my acne situation at bay and has helped with my uneven skin.

Note: SR Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid does kind of smell funny, a little like vinegar  (vinegar = acetic acid). Beardman always makes a weird face when it’s time for my goodnight kiss.

7.Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil

Again another repurchase! I just can’t live without this oil. I’ve tried so many that I can state that this one is amazing, it truly makes my skin look youthful and soft, just like a baby’s butt.

Side Note: This format lasted me 1 year.

8.Drunk Elephant B Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Gel

There is no reason other than my curiosity to try anything from Drunk Elephant (Got caught in the marketing frenzy! Ladies, the power of social medias is real!). I will let you know how I feel about this product soon enough…

9.Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

If you haven’t noticed, I’m fixated on face oils these days. I don’t need this one, but again, my curiosity is getting the best of me (Honestly I should wait, … maybe I will)!

10.B.Kamins Sun Defense UV Screen SPF 48 

I need a face sunscreen badly (remember guys, it’s a 365 days a year job to use sun protection). I feel like a Guinea pig since there are no reviews on this product, so I will share my thoughts pronto and if it doesn’t work, well I will use Sephora’s great return policy!

11.Sephora Collection PRO Featherweight Crease Brush #38

I need another crease brush and since I love Sephora’s Pro collection, I will get this one as I already own #31.

12.Sephora Collection PRO Featherweight Powder Brush #91

I have been admiring this brush in store for so long that it’s time that I get one! With a 20% Off, it’s the best time to acquire those products that we have longed for… I’ll use this brush to apply my translucent powder. So soft and so big, it’ll do a nice job (I think!). Brush #91, you will be mine very soon!

13.Peter Thomas Roth Skin Saver Kit

I have been buying this Skin Saver Kit continuously for the last four years. The Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel is my Holy Grail to use with my Clarisonic or Luna device. The cucumber mask is also among my all-time favorite mask!

14.Kate Somerville Eradikate

I apply this pink concoction on my pimples at night and they usually are gone in the morning; I can’t live without this product. And Beardman finds me so attractive when I go to bed with my chin full of pink dots… Roar! The power of love!!!

15.bareMinerals COMPLEXION RESCUE™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

So in love with this product (even more in awe after mixing 2 drops of Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil). This new potion resulted in the most flawless finishing touch ever! You can read my full review HERE.

16.Philosophy Purity + Anti-Wrinkle Miracle Worker Duo

This is also for my mom, who like myself, swears by this cleanser. This is the perfect product if you double cleanse as it’s gentle enough and not drying. Holy Grail!

Smile and Enjoy Life!

  1. I agree, I stay away from holiday sets now – cute and fun, but rarely any good quality wise!
    The Herbivore Hydrating Face Mist sounds really nice! Now I want it… LOL
    Yes, this is the perfect time to stock up on the Shiseido Facial Cotton! I’m probably going to wait and redeem some Optimum points for those. 😛
    I’m in the minority but I have no interest in Sunday Riley. I just don’t. I’d rather get Paula’s Choice stuff than that brand. Lots of hype and sooooo overpriced.
    Sephora brushes are generally pretty good! I think you’ll get a lot of use out of those 2 brushes.
    Have fun shopping – don’t forget Black Friday is around the corner too…
