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?!?!

Fresh & Fabulous

This has to be my absolute favorite Sephora gift with purchase to date. And … I won’t be ordering. #WILLPOWER. So hard not giving in, but I must save for my July US trip!! And I really want the UD Smoky Palette. I must resist!!! But that doesn’t mean you should! Spend $50 CAD ($35 USD) and get a 3 piece personalized FRESH set. You got to pick your fab 3 products ts out of the 6 listed below:


This set is available for all VIB and VIB Rouge’s. Use code “VIBFRESH” at checkout.

I have a feeling this promo will sell out fast! Good Luck getting your hands on one ♡♡


A New Year brings about a new you. I mean it’s still the old you, but with a fresh, clean slate. Sephora has jumped on the “fresh, clean, new you” theme and have released a fabulous selections of 11 samples to get you refreshed and ready for whatever 2015 throws at you. This bag with 11 samples is free with any online purchase of $35 CAD or more. Simply enter code “REFRESHER” at checkout.

As if that wasn’t incentive enough, you get 2x the points on ANY skin care product (valid in stores and online until Monday, January 19/15, no promo code required).

This includes the recently released Sephora Favorites The Great Cleanse set. So for example, if you order The Great Cleanse online for $58 CAD (already a steal with a value of $152 CAD!!!), you will get 2x the Beauty Insider Rewards points AND 11 free samples. Of course, you could order anything, but this combo would get you a ton of skin care products for under $60 CAD. I couldn’t help but share this phenomenonal deal!!! Fresh year, fresh skin, fresh deals. So far 2015 is looking good!! Or is that just my reflection?! ♡

Sephora VIB Sale Haul

Sephora is currently having their 20% Off Sale. If you are a fan of my blog, you already know this. The best thing about this sale, is that they have a ton of gifts, sets, & exclusives released for the holidays. These “sets” are already an AMAZING value, but combine them with that discount, and I’m on cloud nine! Here’s what I got (and what I saved!)


FRESH Sweet Nudes
Value: $65 CAD
Retail: $42 CAD
Steal: $36.60 CAD


Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
Retail: $15 CAD
Steal: $12 CAD


Too Faced Everything Nice Set
Value: $545 CAD
Retail: $68 CAD
Steal: $54.40 CAD

And of course … the FREE haul! But first a side note. If you are living in YYC I highly suggest you shop at Chinook and NOT South Calgary (Southcentre). Because:
1) South Calgary’s customer service sucks. They never honors sales or promos (wtf?). I have had many issues with them, including today where they tried to tell me the sale was for Rouges only (ummmm that was last night but good thing one of us knows about your job).
2) Chinook’s staff are always on point and they always throw in samples. In my case, they threw in a TON (including deluxe samples), simply “for my troubles”. But even in the past they have thrown in some freebies!
Alright, rant over. Back to the FREE loot!
