Just a reminder that Sephora’s VIB Sale just started today (that’s 20% off from Nov. 13–16, 2015 with the code VIP20). And don’t forget eBates! I got 4% with eBates Canada.
Last Friday, I posted my Sephora wishlist, and here is what I finally ordered tonight. Yes, I stayed up until nearly 3 A.M. EST for the VIB sale. The code actually started working for me at about 2:45. I’m also glad I got in early, because one of the items I ordered—an Ardency Inn eyeshadow duo, and yeah I know I didn’t want to get more eyeshadow!—went out-of-stock almost immediately afterward.
Apart from a few items that I hadn’t 100% decided on (Sephora Formula X Nail Color in Alchemy II, Burberry Lip Velvet in Oxblood, Dior Vernis in Be Dior), everything I really wanted was in stock.
Here’s the damage (this is all coming from my birthday fund this month, and I kept it under C$100):
I decided not to redeem any of my points (there was a nice Urban Decay eye makeup set for 500 points, but I didn’t really need anything in it). By the way, I also just noticed that Sephora Canada has finally sorted out that problem where they were giving Canadians Beauty Insider Points based off the USD value rather than the CAD value. I used to have to email them about converting the points, and occasionally I’d get a surly CSR, so I’m happy about this fix!
And I selected the following three samples (why are so many of the samples for ubiquitous men’s colognes? Jeez):
- DR DENNIS GROSS Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Daily Peel for Sensitive Skin
- LANCÔME Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate
- LANEIGE Water Bank Serum
How’d I do? Have you tried anything that I’m waiting to receive? (I bet most of you have tried the NARS birthday stuff, already!)
And, what’s on your Sephora shopping list during these sales? Have you already placed an order?
