Happy Birthday From Sephora!

Sephora has released their highly anticipated FREE 2016 birthday gifts. This has thrilled some Beauty Insiders, but has disappointed all many VIB Rouge members.

This year, they are offering two different two-piece sets. One gift is from Fresh Beauty and includes mini versions of their Soy Face Cleanser and Rose Face Mask. The other gift is from Marc Jacobs Beauty and includes a mini Le Marc Lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and a mini Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer.


But cue the disappointment for VIB Rouge’s everywhere, because there is NO special Rouge birthday gift this year. No extra product. And yes, this has been confirmed by Sephora. I understand that these birthday gifts are FREE, but it’s kind of a giant slap in the face when you spend over $1000 a year to be apart of their elite level. Especially when you consider all of the other cuts they have recently made to the program (don’t even get me started on how every “exclusive gift” is available to VIB’s).

It’s always great having a birthday at the end of the year and getting to pick up the gift first!! So what did I pick?! Duh. Marc Jacobs. I can not pass on lipstick … ever. And I looooooove MJ’s highliners. I already have this color, but a back up is always a bonus!!

Which gift are you hoping to grab on your birthday?!?!

  1. I think the reward system at Ulta is soooo much better. After you earn 2k in points you get $125 to spend in Ulta. That’s way better than a few samples. Not to mention, Ulta usually ALWAYS has a free set of deluxe samples with your online order on Wednesdays. On top of that, they often have deals where you can get 5 or even 10x the points if you purchase from a certain brand. If you work the deals, you can get the $125 store credit without spending much more than $500. I’m with you on the MJ set though, totally the one I’ll be after too 🙂

      • We have an amazing store here called Shopper’s Drug Mart and they have a similar program … points for anything except theirs never expire like Ulta’s and just continue adding up year after year! And they have Urban Decay, Stila, Chanel, Benefit etc. Plus all the drugstore brands. My plan moving forward is to only be VIB at Sephora (perks are nearly the same) and spend majority of my cash at Shopper’s. And still sneak into Ulta occasionally when I visit the US except I always end up losing points between trips lol.
