The 2018 Sephora VIB Rouge Renewal Gift is available now as well as the new 2018 birthday gifts for all Beauty Insiders. This will be my 6th year being VIB Rouge and I always look forward to what the new renewal gift will be.
I re-qualified for VIB Rouge late last year, but I didn’t redeem my Rouge gift until just yesterday, so I got the new 2018 VIB Rouge renewal gift.
2018 VIB ROUGE RENEWAL GIFT
The 2018 VIB Rouge renewal gift is a Sephora Collection PRO Mini Flawless Airbrush #55.5. This is very similar to last year’s VIB Rouge renewal gift, and I’m a little disappointed actually. I really liked the brush last year and the small size makes it nice for travel, but I didn’t really use it that much.
This new 2018 brush comes in a black canvas-like bag with white polka dots and a red drawstring. This bag feels a lot sturdier than lat year’s red, silky bad, but it’s also a little rough.
Inside the bag is a little welcome card that says,
This is Rouge 2018, and we’re so happy you’re here.
Enjoy this year’s collectible Sephora Collection brush. It’s exclusively yours as a Rouge.
Love, Beauty Insider

The brush looks very similar to last year’s #55.5 brush, but it’s a lot fluffier. I think this brush will be better for maybe blush. It’s a foundation brush, but I have been really liking my beauty blender lately.
LAST YEAR’S VIB ROUGE BRUSH VS. THIS YEAR’S
These brushes are both very soft and nicely shaped. I think that they’re great for travel because of their size, and the quality is good. However, I am a little disappointed to be getting another brush for VIB Rouge renewal.
2018 BEAUTY INSIDER BIRTHDAY GIFT OPTIONS
Even though the VIB Rouge renewal gift is a bit of a dud for me, I am excited about the 2018 birthday options for Beauty Insiders. There are three options to choose from:
GLAMGLOW CLEARING TREATMENT + MOISTURIZER SET
With this birthday option, you get:
- GLAMGLOW Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisterizer (.5oz)
- GLAMGLOW SuperMud Clearing Treatment (.5oz)
I have used GLAMGLOW in the past and really liked it. I haven’t repurchased in a while just because there are other skincare products that I wanted more, but I still really like it. I haven’t tried this moisturizer, but I think this is the Birthday Gift I will redeem for.
BITE BEAUTY LIP SET + AGAVE LIP MASK
With the Bite birthday gift, you get:
- Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon – Glacé (0.89g)
- Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick – Chai (1.55g)
- Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm (0.5g)
- Bite Beauty Agave Lip Scrub (0.5g)
I really love the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask; it’s been amazing for me. But you get the tiniest little sample with this birthday gift. I know that the Bite formula is really nice, and these colors look neutral/nude, so they would be good for a lot of people. I think this will be the most popular birthday gift redeemed.
BUMBLE & BUMBLE SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER SET
This birthday option is an online exclusive, and you get:
- Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Shampoo (1.5 fl. oz.)
- Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Conditioner (1.5 fl. oz.)
I’m not a fan of the shampoo/conditioner samples, but if you love this product already, this would be a good gift to get travel sizes of your favorite products.
