As I’m VIB at Sephora this year, I finally got to place my order with the 20% off 20VIB code today!
I haven’t spent much at Sephora this year, and it was a bit of a struggle to try to get VIB for next year. Part of me wonders if I should have bothered, but Sephora’s semi-annual sale coincides with my birthday month and it gets so tempting to splurge!
Here’s what I ordered (with 4% ebates cashback, as well):
I chose the Fresh skincare birthday gift instead of the Marc Jacobs makeup gift, since I already have the eyeliner in the Marc Jacobs set. The lipstick would have been nice to have, but it’s just a red, and I have enough of those!
Finally, I picked up the ever-popular Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette, that has been on my wishlist for ages. And, since I need more lipstick like I need a hole in the head, I got a Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in C406 and another NARS Audacious Lipstick, this time in Audrey. More sensibly, I picked up Kat Von D‘s Lock-It Setting Powder, since I do use up a lot of loose powder, and Urban Decay‘s new Pro Essential Brush Stash, because it’ll be awesome to have a proper travel brush set!
I’m really looking forward to trying the Deborah Lipmann Her Majesty Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish Set and Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Sally, because nail polish!!!
Also, I’m excited to try the Versace Bright Crystal freebie, inspired by a post on MyLipAddiction. The other two freebies I picked were also fragrance samples: Versace Eros pour femme and Maison Martin Margiela Replica Lipstick On.
I didn’t redeem any of my points, since there wasn’t anything in the Rewards that I particularly wanted.
And, I did just achieve VIB for 2017 after placing this order! Not entirely sure I’ll do this again next year, though. I’m definitely shopping for more beauty products elsewhere, these days.
