This upcoming weekend is Sephora VIB 20% off sale and I already have my cart loaded up – can you tell I am avoiding a deadline at work? I thought it would be fun to share your picks and recommendations for the sale. Mine are:
Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil – my daily moisturizer, made a huge difference for my skin, highly recommend
Klorane Shampoo with Chamomile – my usual shampoo, will probably order two bottles
Lancôme Dual Finish Powder Foundation – I’m not a big makeup person (I hope some of you chime in! I love reading about makeup…) but I really like this and they have a great shade for me
Grande Cosmetics GRANDELASH – I’ve been wanting to try an eyelash growth serum and this is what I’ve settled on… advice very welcome!
Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM – I’ve been using the Sunday Riley Luna oil because I like retinol serums at night but the bottle turned before I could finish it. I’ve tried The Ordinary retinols and their products don’t work for me but other recommendations would be great.
Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream – best eye cream and I’ve tried a good number of them
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream – my husband’s daily moisturizer (he asked me to reorder twice yesterday so he must be desperate)

For lash serum I would recommend the RapidLash. You can get 2 for $50 with a Costco membership. It worked wayyyy better than grande lash for me personally and I’ve heard the same from a few other people.
This year I rebought my favorite fancy foundation- Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk
Laneige Lip Sleep Mask
Huda Beauty Emerald Palette
That was it for this year! Trust me, my loves list has A LOT more but I went overboard last year and decided to stick to necessities this time with one fun thing (the palette)

I spent like $350 this year and that’s after the coupon code. I’m a Rouge member so I clearly have a problem lol. I had to get a ton of face makeup since Sephora came out with their clean category. I’m obsessed with clean beauty items now. Got a foundation by Lawless which I’m loving, Antonym organic blush, Saturday Skin under eye cream, Kopari lip gloss, Kopari coconut melt, new lash curler, Drunk Elephant face soaps… too much to list but I have been LOVING everything I got.

I took advantage of the sale for Rouge members last week.
I got the Tatcha silk canvas primer and eye illuminating serum, Too Faced born this way ethereal setting powder, Lash Food lash serum and restocked on beauty blenders, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation and powder and Fresh lotus youth preserve rescue mask.
Still contemplating if I should go back for round two…

I ordered during the first rouge sale.
I got the retinol booster system from I think it is BioReady. Then I ordered the new Becca x Chrissy Teigan set, the NARS hot tryst check palette, a set from Winky Lux (the glimmer balm was good, but the lip gloss burned a little and not in that good lip pumping kind of way), the Laneige sleeping lip mask set (love and hope Sephora starts stocking the full sizes of the other flavors/scents) and then a few rollerball perfumes for Christmas presents.
I’m still contemplating one of the Pat McGrath eyeshadow palettes though. Can rouge also order during VIB? I know rouge used to be able to order during all the sale weekends and then one year (last year?) They made it that rouge could only order during their specified sale weekend and couldn’t get the discount during the VIB or BI weekends.

I used to be Rouge, but it’ll run out this year since I just don’t buy much from Sephora anymore. I did purchase a few nice sets of things I’ve been wanting to try, though:
Laneige Kiss and Makeup Set
J.One Red Jelly Pack
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mini

Currently waiting in my cart for purchase:
Hourglass Lip Stylo in Dreamer
Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Mask
Stila Huge Extreme Mascara
Drunk Elephant C-Tango eye cream
Huda Beauty Topaz Obessions palette
I’ve also been heavily hinting to my husband about a Christmas present for me – Replica By the Fireplace perfume
I’m going a little overboard this year…oops!

annabananabee : I believe Rouge had their own weekends – the two previous weekends. I believe this weekend is only for VIBs and next for BIs.
