Sephora Spring Sale 2017 Wish List + Nordstrom Beauty Purchase

Each spring Sephora holds a sale where VIB Rouge members get 15% off everything. There’s also usually an in-store event on the first day of the sale which I’ve really enjoyed in the past and look forward to each year. My favorite event was the Beauty Before Brunch event. This year, I’ve put together a small wish list to get ready for the event >>

Sephora VIB Rouge | Beauty Before Brunch

We went to Sephora’s VIB Rouge “Beauty Before Brunch” event this morning and we had a great time. The Beauty Before Brunch event was an exclusive VIB Rouge shopping event to launch the 15% off spring sale. I attended last year’s spring event, and overall, I would say that this event was better.

muffinchanel sephora vib vibrouge spring sale discount marc jacobs tarte lancome dior beauty before brunch confirmationI RSVP’d right away for myself and a guest. We arrived today at around 9:30am and they checked us in at a table near the entrance — everyone was super friendly and energetic. I was really fun to be around people who are all excited about beauty, skincare and makeup.

For the Sephora VIB Rouge event there was a small setup of food in the back of the store — way smaller than last year’s spread. It was kind of disappointing, but I didn’t come here for the muffins & bagels…muffinchanel sephora vib vibrouge spring sale discount marc jacobs tarte lancome dior beauty before brunch food




I already had a list ready to go…with a few minor changes. And I found everything on my list! Yay!muffinchanel sephora vib vibrouge spring sale discount marc jacobs tarte lancome dior beauty before brunch sephora haulI got the new Marc Jacobs #InstaMarc Light Filtering Contour Powders in 40 Mirage. This was the main reason I went into the store instead of ordering online. The 40 Mirage shade has been sold out online for a while but they said it was available in store. I went to the Marc Jacobs section right away and they were out of this color….I was super sad until I turned around and saw it on a “Contouring” podium. hallelujah!

I love the coverage of this foundation and how easy it is to apply. I first picked this up at Sephora’s Spring Sale last year!

I’m really happy with my purchases and the sample baggie we got. Great customer service today as well — really makes VIB Rouge feel a little extra special. We got a ton of awesome samples and color matched for two great foundations. Everyone was awesome today and I’m really happy we went.

What did you pick up today? Or what will you be getting during the sale? 🙂

 

Sephora VIB Spring Sale | Wishlist

Sephora usually has their VIB Spring sale at the end of March/beginning of April. Last year’s Spring Social was so much fun! VIB’s got 15% off and I picked up some great Tarte foundation and a NARS matte multiple.

I’ve had a few things in my Sephora cart for a while now, but I am waiting for the 15% off before I buy anything. Until then, I thought I’d share my wishlist!

  • Lancôme – VISIONNAIRE LR 2412 4% – Cx Advanced Skin Corrector

I really like this “skin corrector” by Lancôme. I’ve used it for years on and off, but lately I’ve really noticed an improvement in my skin. My face feels hydrated and smooth and looks brighter.

  • Lancôme – Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 For All Skin Types

This has been my go-to facial moisturizer for a while. I like how it has SPF 15 and is so light weight. I’m really running low, so I hope that 15% off comes soon! 🙂

  • NARS – Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (Bettina)

This lip pencil looks like the perfect dusty pink color. It’s a creamy matte lip stain/crayon that looks like the NARS pencils in this year’s VIB birthday set. I think this color would be great for spring/everyday.

  • NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer (Custard)

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this NARS concealer. I’ve been looking for a brightening concealer for my under eyes, but something that won’t crease or look too light/chalky. I’m not sure if this is it, but I’m interested in trying it out.

  • Smashbox – Layer Lash Primer

I’ve been out of this for a while and have been getting along just fine, but I feel like it helps my lashes from drying out with different mascaras. I like how this primer doesn’t have those “fibers” and it glides on smoothly.

  • Marc Jacobs Beauty – #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour 

There’s a lot of hype around contouring the face lately and I’ve been using my NARS matte multiple to define my face more, but with spring/summer approaching, I prefer powders over creams (foundation/highlighters/bronzers).

  • tarte – The Slenderizer Bamboo Contour 

This brush would be great to apply the contour powders and it looks really fun.

VIB Rouge Spring Social + Sephora HAUL

The Spring Social was Sephora’s first store-wide VIB Rouge event and we had so much fun. If you were already VIB Rouge, you might have received your invite in the mail or through email.

The event was “closed door” from 9-11am today for all VIB Rouges who RSVP’d. My friend and I got there about 9:30am and the store was super busy! They checked us in at the door and we were greeted by everyone. There was fun music, Starbucks, cute little waters & snacky pastries in the back.

Two hair styling stations were set up in the back and every beauty station had someone getting her makeup done. It was such a fun vibe and it was cool to shop with other people who love beauty, skincare and makeup as much as I do.

I had a list of everything I wanted to get and I was super excited about the extra 15% off + VIB Rouge goody bag!

And then the freebee bag is really cute and quite large with the zip around opening. I think it might be too big to throw in my purse, but it’ll be nice as a small travel makeup bag.
