This past week was one of the events long anticipated by makeup lovers everywhere; the Sephora VIB sale! Who doesn’t love 15% off their purchase!? The VIB sale is the perfect time to stock up on beloved items you need to repurchase, and the 15% off is also a great excuse to finally try out that product that’s been sitting on your wish list for like, ever. (Oh, and if you missed this sale, no worries! There is a second sale, typically in November, where Sephora offers 20% off to VIBs…so start building a wish list now!)
This year, I actually shopped the sale! Yes, you read that correctly, and I mean to say that this was the first time I ever took advantage of a VIB sale…cue gasps and clutching of pearls! I’m not sure why, but in the past I would have a whole cart full of products just waiting to be purchased, but the total would glare me in the eye and I’d feel guilty. Guilty about buying some fancy schmancy mascara when the kind at the drug store is just as good, right!? Guilty about spending money on products I already had because this concealer can totally last until the next sale! Eventually, I’d remove everything from my cart and that was that. Inevitably a week after the sale was over, I’d run out of a foundation and have to repurchase it at full price, and I’d be kicking myself all the way home from the mall.
Well, not this year! With a little encouragement from my mom (who threatened to push the “place order” button if I didn’t) I was convinced to treat mysekf! I mean, between 15% and a gift card I had from my birthday, it would have been down right wrong not to shop the sale! (Just smile and nod)
So what did I buy!? I stocked up on some products that have become staples in my collection, and I also got some things, okay, okay, a LOT of things, I’ve been dying to try.
New to the Party :
My second order (…yes I placed a second order for these 2 items #hadtohave The items aren’t pictured because it hasn’t shipped yet, but I can’t wait to get them!)
