Sephora VIB Rouge 20% OFF Sale Details + My Wishlist and Recommendations!

Sephora's most exciting sale is right around the corner! The VIB ROUGE Event starts on the 6th, but I've got my basket prepared already because I know exactly what I need. I've been head over heels for Guerlain lately so it's no surprise I've chosen a couple goodies to try. My obsession with those eye patches might seem over the top, but I'm indulging only because of the discount!

My current cart situation.. this may or may not change! ><

I love the Beautyblender sponges in the micro mini size to blend out concealer and apply Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder to set the concealer. Hence I'll be stocking up on another set of the micro mini sponges. This is a new trick that I planned to reveal in my November Favorites video, but I will share it here on the blog first because of the sale!! I know the reviews aren't stellar, but these little sponges are very useful if you have smaller features or prefer precise blending, especially with products like cream contour or cream highlighter.

Let's shift to skin care since this is always a hot topic for me. I love the new Sephora exclusive Sunday Riley Good Genes + Luna Oil set because they're travel friendly but not sample sizes. They're two of my favorite products from her skin care lineup, expensive but worthwhile. TATCHA rarely goes on sale, so stock up on their amazing cleansing oil! If you're on a budget, I highly recommend First Aid Beauty. I use their Ultra Repair Lotion on my body and the Eye Duty Triple Remedy when I'm too lazy to apply eye cream and concealer separately. Other must-haves are my daily use sunscreen by Eve Lom and Laura Mercier's scrub which smells heavenly.

If you're interested in recently launched makeup, I highly recommend YSL's Touche Eclat Blur Primer and Burberry's Fresh Glow Powder Foundation or Nude Glow Pressed Powder. I've discussed both in my detailed HG Powders review here! I also recommend Burberry's wet/dry single eyeshadows and Makeup Forever's eyeshadows. Sephora offers a lot of color makeup, but I find that these two brands produce the smoothest, creamiest, and most pigmented eye colors. If you want lipsticks, look no further than Louboutin Silky Satin and YSL Rouge Pur Couture!

Foundations are always popular during sales because this is a tough makeup category since good base makeup can get expensive fast. Armani is now offered at Sephora, so I suggest trying Armani's famed Luminous Silk foundation if you have dry skin and Lasting Silk if you have normal to combination skin. Other base makeup that I like for Fall/Winter is YSL's Touche Eclat Foundation and Makeup Forever Ultra HD. If you prefer loose powder formulas, I love Smashbox Halo and Laura Mercier Mineral Powder. They are both capable of sheer to medium coverage, and the best part is that neither option will break the bank.

Now for fragrances! The two I wear most often are YSL's Black Opium (for evenings) and Burberry's My Burberry (for daytime), and I have reviewed all of them this year. The My Burberry Eau de Toilette is a little brighter, more youthful but as long lasting as the EDP on my skin, which is quite rare. I opt for the EDP when I have a meeting or when the weather is cooler. Since I wear Black Opium at night, I have a Black Opium 0.33oz travel size bottle in my cart because I want to keep it in my purse for emergency (re)application!

Of course we can't forget T3 Micro! I have converted all my friends, family, and even fellow YouTubers. It's not that hard to convince them because T3 Micro produces gorgeous, high quality, high performance tools. My favorites are the Bodywaver and new Twirl Convertible 1.25 inch. Their latest PROi is undeniably the best on the market because it is extremely quiet considering how powerful the motor is. I also recommend stocking up on cotton by Koh Gen Do whether you want them to apply toner or to use for DIY masks. I also like MUFE's synthetic brushes, Tweezerman classic slant tweezers, and hair brushes like the Tangleteezer because it can be used on wet hair.

  1. I am a VIB and I still haven't received anything regarding the sale in November. Should I be worried???

    1. This is a VIB Rouge event! I believe the VIB event will commence the 10th or so!

  2. I've been editing and re-editing my cart in anticipation of this sale! I need to give a Burberry fragrance a try - my boyfriend has a couple of the men's ones, and they smell amazing and linger really nicely.

    1. You must! Some people prefer Body but I'm all about My Burberry because it's one of the few scents that wears sweet instead of powder on my dry skin!

  3. hi! can't wait for the VIB sale - i'm researching now to make sure I don't forget anything! Can you recommend a good round hairbrush for when you blow dry and style?

    1. I just use the black one that came with my T3 Luxe 2i hair dryer! My friend is a hair stylist and he has recommended Ibiza (available online at Nordstrom). I plan on trying a couple soon!
