Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations

At long last, our beloved Sephora sale has arrived. And the high frequency sheik that errupted out of my mouth set car alarms off. Once I regained a normal heart rate, I settled in to plan my purchases. For weeks I have been speculating when this sale would happenIf you’re like me, you budget for this semi-annual sale months before it rolls around. Because this sale is so highly anticipated throughout the beauty community, I thought I would give you a guide to shopping the sale, as well as the products I have been loving that are available in the sale. Happy shopping!

What is the Sephora VIB Sale?

The Sephora VIB Sale is the only storewide sale that Sephora has. It happens twice a year, and what percentage off your purchase is determined by your status (eye roll) in their reward program. Those with Insider status, the lowest on the totem pole, get 10% off, VIB 15%, and VIB Rouge 20%. Your status in Sephora’s reward program is determined by how much money you spend, converted into a point system where every dollar you spend counts as either 1 point as an Insider, 1.25 points as a VIB, or 1.5 points as a Rouge. Clearly, this program rewards those who spend most. But regardless of where you rank in Sephora’s reward program, this is a great opportunity to save money at our favorite luxury beauty supplier.
