Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know by now that Sephora is running it’s annual autumn/winter Friends & Family sale, starting today — with a bit of a twist (a bad one).
The details: This year, VIBs/VIB Rouges will be the only ones getting 20% off their orders, without brand exclusions. Using the code VIBTOPIA at both Sephora.com and Sephora.ca, they (and one friend, with a single-use code) will get the discount at checkout from November 7th, 2013 through November 11th, 2013 — just five days, so act fast!
Click here to shop.
If you’re not a VIB/VIB Rouge (it’s okay, neither am I) but still want to haul, I’d recommend using the code BLITZ: it’s valid on all orders over $25 USD/$35 CAD, and lets you choose from four free sets of deluxe samples to add to your order.
Not sure what to buy? Here are some of my picks… (all images click through!)
To start: products to get the glowiest skin on the block. From the Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder ($50 USD/$58 CAD) I’ve been lusting over all year and will likely never, ever be able to use due to its silicone content, to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette ($58 USD/$67 CAD) that I also can’t use because of its silicone content, these are a handful of surefire products to help you get what I like to call “runway skin.”
(Man, that was a long sentence.)
Fresh, dewy, and completely separate from your foundation routine–because we all have entirely different ones,–hopefully at least one of these products will float your boat. If not all of them, because gah.
Just a few (great) miscellaneous products and collections that have launched over the past few weeks! Have fun with the widget, and I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday.
Marc Jacobs Beauty
As mentioned in last month’s Marc Jacobs Beauty preview, the new beauty line launched last Friday (August 9th). It’s been met with mixed reviews so far–the liquid liner is supposed to be amazing; the eye palettes, only mediocre–but I’m curious to see how it’ll do in the coming months.
Shop the collection here or in the widget above.
Clinique All About Eyes
Alongside all-new eyeshadows (and aren’t they gorgeous?), Clinique has launched a concealer and an all-new eyeshadow base — and I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty curious. As someone who struggles greatly with eyeshadow fallout and creasing, a new base from any brand (much less one of my favourites) is something to get excited about.
Here’s to hoping!
Plus, a few great freebies at Sephora
For Beauty Insiders only, of course. Use codes OPAL, ARGANLIGHT, or LMSMOOTH with any purchase over $35 CAD at the online store for a free deluxe sample of the newly-launched Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal ($50 CAD), Josie Maran Argan Oil Light ($58 CAD), or Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder ($52 CAD).
Shop here, and see the rest of the Beauty Insider GWP-type deals here! I know I don’t usually post this type of deal, but — well, these ones seemed particularly awesome (by which I mean I kind of want to try them, too.) I thought I’d give you a heads up, just in case!
With free US shipping and a buy-two-get-one sale, today (5/25) is the perfect day to stock up on your favourite Nordstrom mascaras! Here’s a few that come highly recommended…
It’s almost here! Sephora’s twice-annual sale is back, with 15% off for all beauty for Beauty Insiders (Friday, April 12th to Sunday, April 21st) and VIBs (Thursday, April 11th to Monday, April 22nd.)
Use code CHIC at checkout!
(P.S. Can’t wait for Chic Week? Check out Sephora’s sale section and weekly offers in the meantime — both are already live, and the sale section is already up to 60% off!)
