It's almost time for Sephora's Spring VIB/Chic Sale. Time to get your wish list updated to be ready to drop your hard earned cash on some splurge worthy items.
I am only an Beauty Insider this time around. For past few years actually. But I will take 10% off no problem. I love watching Sephora hauls just to see what is hot, swatches, first impressions and just how much people spend. They always invoke a reaction from me. Whether it is “Ooh yess that looks good I need one too” to "No way that is like $800. What the hell? And it isn't even a sale." It’s a guilty pleasure.
I recently cleaned up my Sephora wish list and thought it would be fun to make a post about what I would get if I had a $100 Sephora Gift Card for the VIB event.
My top items in my wish list would be:
Kat Von D Light + Shade Eye Contour Palette $62 CAD/$48 USD
This is the big ticket item I would get. I was playing around with this in Sephora a little while ago and I almost got it then but the $62 price tag has me gasping. Do I really need that many mattes? But I rationalize that it is on sale and I really really want it. HA! These mattes are incredibly pigmented and so buttery soft.
Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing 15ml $20 CAD/$16 USD
I had a sample of this last year and I really loved it. So now I want more. It was super effective in filling in my pores and makes almost any foundation work awesome on my textured skin. Plus it works quite well smoothing over dry skin. There is a larger version available 30ml/$50 CAD but I wanted to stay as close to $100 as possible.
Becca Glow on the Go Highlighter Set $24 CAD/$20 USD
I have never tried anything from Becca and thought the best place to start would be with Becca’s best selling Opal luminizers. The kit includes travel sized versions of the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed and Spotlight Wand in Opal. While I am not super crazy into highlighters, I do want to understand the hype over the Becca highlighters. I want to experience the awesomeness.
These are not new beauty items but very loved products. Just these three items brings me to $106 CAD. With the 10% off from the VIB sale, I would still have $4 to go towards taxes. At least I qualify for free shipping. I prefer shopping online with Sephora because you have access to better samples. I always feel disappointed with only the one sample I get at counter in Sephora. I do have to say the new online site is killing me. Geez Loiuse! Why does it take so long to load? The mobile version is so much faster.
What is the big item on your VIB wishlist?
I also recommend using ebates.ca when shopping online. Get some extra cash back for shopping. Right now Sephora is at 8% cash back but I suspect that it will drop down to 4% once the VIB sale starts. But 4% is better than most cash back offers I have seen. I do have a referral link on the side bar if you wish to sign up.
