What I Picked Up From The Sephora VIB Sale



One of the best beauty sales of the year is here!
That's right, if you are a beauty insider at Sephora then you wait for this sale every year just like me!
Sephora only has a sale like this ONCE A YEAR and it's always at the perfect time  - the holidays.
This is when I stock up on my absolute beauty necessities since you are getting them at a discount and a lot of these products never go on sale.

It's free to sign up as a beauty insider and to be honest, if you shop for beauty or hair products AT ALL, signing up as a Sephora insider is the way to go. You get 1 point for every dollar you spend and based on how much you spend a year determines your beauty insider status. PLUS you can get travel sized products based on 100 points, 250 points, etc.  (It's a no brainer!)

Here are the sale details based on what level of a beauty insider you are:

November 10-15th is for VIB (Level 2) - Get 20% off with code will be 20FORVIB.
November 10-15th is for Beauty Insiders (Level 1) -  Get 15% off with code INSIDER15.
So, I thought I would hop on here on this cozy Saturday morning and share with you what I picked up with my 20% off!

1.) Needles No More Baggage De-puffing Eye Gel


Ok, I can't get over this stuff. It's absolutely amazing. I actually already texted my sister & closes girlfriends and told them that if they shopped the Sephora sale this year, they HAD to pick this stuff up asap. It's a gel that you put under your eyes in the morning BEFORE you put on your makeup. After about 3 minutes, my under eye area is tighter and the puffiness is basically gone. It's like magic and it's one of my favorite finds this entire year. It's pricey, but so worth it. I bought another tube during the sale as a back up.


2.) NARS Creamy Concealer


This is a staple product for me. After many years, this is still one of my favorite concealers for my undereye and for covering pesty pimples. Works miracles on covering up acne, scars and sun spots. I get the shade " Light 3 Honey".


3.) Tarte In Bloom Eye Shadow Palette


I'm becoming more and more in love with Tarte eyeshadows. They make the best palettes! I've wanted to try this one for a while now, so I added this to my cart! I'm a big neutral/warm eye shadow fan, so this palette looks right up my alley.


4.) NARS Blush & Lipstick Set


How cute is this little set?! Honestly, one of my favorite things about the holidays is all the fun gift sets that come out. It's the perfect time to try a new shade of lipstick or blush, and this NARS set is perfection. I picked up a couple for girlfriends.


5.) Watermelon Glow Sleep Mask


This has been on my "really want to try" list for a while now. A lot of bloggers RAVE about it. It's a Korean beauty product that flys off the shelves every month. So if I could grab it AND it was on sale, I wasn't missing out on that! I'll let you know how I like it.


6.) Smashbox Photofinish Primer


Remember those insider points I was talking about earlier? Well, I used 100 of my points a couple of months ago to pick up a travel size of this primer. I'm now obsessed, as it makes my skin so smooth! I picked up the full size version during this sale.


7.) Beautyblender


I talked about my love for beautyblenders over on my Instagram stories last week (@ashdonielle) so of course I picked up a new one during the sale. It's always good to have a backup!  I use the beauty blender to blend in my liquid foundation before I apply my powder. I get the beautyblender wet and then ring it out in a towel (so it's not soaking wet but just slightly damp) and then I blend in my foundation. Gives your face a really airbrushed look!



8.) Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast




I can't live without this stuff - I love it! I use it to add a little bit more volume and grit to my hair after I curl it! I showed you how to use it over in my "how I curl my hair" post here.




9.) QUAI Memory Mist



Out of everything I ordered, I'm most excited to try this! I have heard amazing reviews and it's suppose to be the bomb.com. It's suppose to keep your curls in place for up to 3 days and the reviews are amazing!




10.) Bobbi Brown Art Stick



If you've followed me for a while now, you are probably sick of me talking about these, but hey, they are THAT GOOD. They are long lasting, moisturizing and the actual stick comes with a sharpener, so it lasts forever! I picked up a new fall color that surprisingly I don't have yet - "Cassis".




11.) Caudalie Beauty Elixir



No explaining needed here. This is a beauty travel necessity for me, so I picked up another travel size to have on hand for my next trip. If you haven't tried this spray yet, buy a travel size during this sale and test it out. You'll love it.




12.) Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara



I swear by this mascara! There is nothing more annoying to me then when I go to put on a mascara and it looks like there is nothing on my lashes after one application. This mascara makes your lashes so full and voluminous after applying it only one time! It's another one of my beauty necessities so I had to stock up.



13.) IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara



Speaking of mascaras, I picked this one up about a month ago and absolutely LOVE it as well. I would have to say it's just as good as the Marc Jacobs one above. The brushes are different and I've actually been using a coat of each when I apply my mascara. I'm loving the combo! One of my favorite bloggers Courtney Shields swears by this mascara and this lash primer combo, so I picked up the primer during the sale and another mascara for backup! :) 


 Hoping this post gives you some great beauty buy ideas!
Have a great weekend!
