As you may have heard, Sephora is having a major sale – the Sephora Insider Appreciation Sale! This means that you need to be signed up as a Sephora Insider to be able to shop it.
Currently, until Thursday, August 30, the sale is open to VIB Rouge Status Insiders (those who spend $1000 annually). On Thursday, it opens up to VIB Status Insiders (those who spend $350+ annually) and Beauty Insiders (free to sign up!) At this time, VIBs will get 15% off with the code YESVIB and Beauty Insiders will get 10% off with YESINSIDER.
The best part about this sale? Nearly EVERYTHING is up for grabs! So now is the perfect time to nab that C Serum that you’ve been eyeing or that foundation that everyone raves about but is just a little out of your price range.
Guys, I spend way too much time and money at Sephora. But what can I say? I love trying out new skin care and makeup products! So while I’m no makeup artist and half the time I can’t draw a straight line with my eyeliner (who taught these girls how to do this!?!?), I’ve stumbled upon a few products that I have now decided that I can’t live without (dramatic – I know).
If you read my self-tanner blog post, you know all about why I love Tan-Luxe’s products, specifically The Water, The Body and The Face. The formula gives you a natural, streak free glow that lasts longer than most! It is easy to apply and so worth all the hype!
I know, not what you expected on this list. But GUYS. How often do we hear that “beauty starts from within?” Well, it didn’t come from nowhere. As a vegetarian, I have to be smart about taking in enough proteins, and unfortunately, I miss out on a lot of a lot of nutrients because of it. Vital Proteins is a soluble powder (flavorless!) that is jam packed with collagen peptides, which are great for your hair, skin, nails, joints, ligaments and tendons. I start each morning with a scoop of this in my coffee and over the last 6 months, I’ve noticed a significant difference!
Y’all, I’d love to say that I have perfect skin and be this perfect Insta Influencer for you, but I’m totally not and I definitely don’t. My skin is consistently a hot mess and is more extra than guac when it comes to any life changes. So thank the lord for sending me to the Urban Decay stand at Sephora about a year ago so I could pick this tube of foundation up because I was over being asked if someone could help me – I guess it was unbelievably obvious that I had absolutely no idea what I was looking for.
We’ve all heard the craze, and have probably given in and spent entirely too much on (guilty), Urban Decay’s eyeshadow pallets. And you may have tried Urban Decay’s cult favorite (and mine) All Nighter Spray.
If you are looking for a lightweight option, check out the Naked Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation – all the same benefits with a lighter coverage!
Speaking of Urban Decay favorites, I wear UD;s Optical Illusion Complexion Primer DAILY. Why? Because of that “more extra than guac” skin refusing to allow makeup to stay on my face for more than a few hours. *insert the eyeroll emoji* But thankfully that confused little makeup newbie also picked up a sample primer that same fateful day in Sephora because FINALLY my makeup stays through the end of the workday! *insert the praise emoji*
A couple of years ago, I received a sample of Sunday Riley’s Good Genes (aka the world’s Holy Grail) through a subscription box and have been an obsessed Sunday Riley cult member every since, self-confirmed. After just a week or two of using it, my skin did a 180. It gives your skin a perfectly dewey glow without making your face greasy. My breakouts have significantly decreased. Y’all. I know. $105 is like… WOW. But that’s why taking advantage of this sale to nab this Holy Grail is a perfect opportunity you don’t want to miss!
So those are my “If you’re only going to buy 5 things” Sephora Beauty Insiders Appreciation Sale MUST HAVES, the things that I’m restocking for myself during this sale.
If you have any questions about my top picks, DM me on Instagram and I’d be happy to talk about them more! And be sure to participate in the $100 Sephora Gift Card Giveaway that I’m doing with some of my favorite Kansas City Blogger babes!
