fivezero's Sephora VIB Sale Haulage (November 2017)

Haulage! Sephora VIB Sale (November 2017)

As a VIB member at Sephora, the annual 20% off VIB sale was open to me on Friday, November 10, and I’ve since placed two orders, even though I was trying to limit myself to just the first. This always happens, and I blame November being my birthday month so usually I give myself a little more license to splurge.

Sephora VIB Sale, November 2017

(Look at that fine print! I never realized this but we “clients” are limited to 1 Dyson item and 5 Pat McGrath eyeshadow palettes per transaction; Canadians are also limited to 3 Fresh, Yves Saint Laurent, and Dior items per transaction.)

Of course, for the last couple of months, I’ve been anticipating this sale. I’ve been chucking things in and out of my shopping cart (it helps that I don’t bother to consider brands I can get at Shoppers Drug Mart / beautyBOUTIQUE, like Urban Decay, Dior, Estée Lauder, Smashbox, and Clarins).

Here’s the list of stuff I hauled, the freebies, and the stuff I wanted to haul but didn’t!

Once again, I bought more lipstick (granted, they were all marked down before the 20% discount) even though I need ’em like I need a hole in the head.

Stuff I Hauled

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette [C$59]
I’ve loved the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette that I got during last November’s VIB sale! It was a no-brainer to get the Sweet Peach palette this year.

Nails Inc. Sparkle Like a Unicorn Set with Nail Polish, Sheet Mask, Lipstick
Nails Inc. Sparkle Like a Unicorn Set: Illuminating Sheet Mask, Mini Nail Polishes (2 × 5 mL) in Unicorn VibesUnicorn Dot Com, Lip Trippin’ Iridescent Strobe Lipstick in Unicorn Tribe [C$21]
I already picked up the previous Sparkle Like a Unicorn set, so obviously I had to get this one, too. It comes with a lipstick and a sheet mask! I’ve never tried any non-nail polish things from Nails Inc., so this will be interesting.

Deborah Lippmann Shining Star Ornament
Deborah Lippmann Shining Star Ornament: Deluxe Nail Colors (2 × 7.65 mL) in Outta SpaceSpace Unicorn [C$22]
A little Christmas gift for myself! I doubt I’ll literally hang this on our tree, though.

Laneige Good Night Kit (Lip Sleeping Mask & Water Sleeping Mask)
Laneige Good Night Kit (Lip Sleeping Mask (3 g) & Water Sleeping Mask (15 mL) [C$13]
I bought the other Good Night Kit a while ago, which came with the Water Sleeping Mask and Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask. The Water Sleeping Mask was pretty nice, but mainly I want to try the Lip Sleeping Mask.

OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil
OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil [C$42]
I am loving OUAI, after trying their Treatment Masque, CLEAN Shampoo, and VOLUME Conditioner. Ipsy didn’t do me the favor of sending me the OUAI Hair Oil sample this month, so this made its way into my cart. Whatever, anything with rose is better, right?

OUAI Repair Conditioner
OUAI REPAIR Conditioner [C$32]
Also got the REPAIR Conditioner.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Piaf
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Piaf [C$26, on sale for $15]
These lipsticks have been on clearance at Sephora for a while, and different shades keep going in and out of stock. I placed my second order when the two non-matte shades I was interested in became available again. Piaf is described as a “cool chocolate w/ purple shimmer.”

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Wolvesmouth
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Wolvesmouth [C$26, on sale for $15]
Wolvesmouth is described as a “metallic berry.” I love the KVD lipstick packaging!

Sephora Collection Rouge Shine Lipstick in Get Rich
Sephora Collection Rouge Shine Lipstick in Get Rich [C$15.50, on sale for $7]
I’ve had my eye on these clearanced Sephora lipsticks for a while! Get Rich (“bright strawberry with iridiscent shimmer”) was on sale for $7, and 20% off made it $5.60.

Sephora Collection Rouge Shine Lipstick in Heartbreaker
Sephora Collection Rouge Shine Lipstick in Heartbreaker [C$16, on sale for $6]
Heartbreaker (“sheer royal purple”) was on sale for $6, and 20% off made it $4.80. I’ve only tried one Sephora lipstick long ago, and I remember it being quite nice.

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Amulet (Deluxe Sample)
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Amulet (0.75 mL Deluxe Sample) [100 point reward]
This was a 100 pt reward. It doesn’t contain very much product (0.75 mL), but I haven’t liked many of the Sephora rewards, so I felt a bit compelled to choose something.

Freebies!

Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit & Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty (Sephora Birthday Gift 2017)
Sephora Birthday Gift 2017: tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit (1 mL) & Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty (1.5 g) Deluxe Samples

It took me a while to decide between the Caudalie skincare gift and the tarte blush and lip paint gift, but in the end I went with the color makeup. It’s just more fun! The blush looks a tad light, though.  I hope it’ll show up on my skin. You’d think Sephora and tarte would do birthday gifts in at least two color options, say a lighter set and a deeper set.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation (sample)
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation (samples in Vanilla, Light Beige, Sand)
Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation (sample)
Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation (samples in Shell & Nude)
Miu Miu L'Eau Bleue (sample)
Miu Miu L’Eau Bleue (1.2 mL sample)
Boscia Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser (sample)
Boscia Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser (2.5 mL sample)
Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner (sample)
Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner (2 × 9.7 mL samples)

The samples weren’t that great so I ended up picking up a couple of shampoo & conditioner sets.

Verb Shampoo & Conditioner (sample)
Verb Volume Shampoo & Conditioner (2 × 10 mL samples)

Stuff That Stayed On My Wishlist!

Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach
Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach [C$40]
This was out-of-stock after the VIB Rouge sale. I’m kind of hoping it will come back in stock by Wednesday, but on the other hand, I shouldn’t buy anymore stuff!

Stellar Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach
Stellar Cosmic Face Setting Powder in Glow 01 [C$36]
I love the Stellar lipstick I bought last spring, so I’m interested in trying more products from this Canadian line.

Stellar Magnetic Eyeshadow Solar Palette
Stellar Magnetic Eyeshadow Solar Palette [C$50]
I passed on this pretty palette, since I do have the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette, which seems a bit similar.

Fenty Beauty Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick in Sci-Fly
Fenty Beauty Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick in Sci-Fly [C$24]
If I’m really honest, I just wanted this for the packaging! I think these glittery lipsticks are probably going to be too sheer—and too glittery—for my liking.

Bésame Mini Lipstick Set
Bésame Mini Lipstick Set: 5 × 1 g Classic Color Mini Lipsticks in Noir Red (1930), Cherry Red (1935), Red Velvet (1946), Dusty Rose (1969), Chocolate Kiss (1970) [C$33]
I already have the full-sized Red Velvet lipstick, so that makes this set worth a bit less to me. It’s such a pretty set, though.

Smith's Rosebud Perfume Co. Mocha Rose Lip Balm
Smith’s Rosebud Perfume Co. Mocha Rose Lip Balm [C$8.50]
This went out of stock before I could buy it.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Revolution
ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Revolution [C$7]
The ColourPop stuff is all excluded from the VIB sale, so I’ll just wait for the December $20 off coupon (they’re still doing that, right?) to pick up a few of these.

Thanks for reading!

    • I think I’d seen maybe lipstick before? But not the skincare, for sure! I already thought it was weird when Ciaté and Butter London started branching into makeup, haha! But it does make sense—except that Nails Inc. actually has “nails” in their name.

  1. I’ll live vicariously through you. That Nails Inc set is adorable! And ah the DL duo – I sense a unicorn theme? Good deals on those Sephora lipsticks!
    My Sephora sale purchases were SO LAME this time around! I blame the Surratt brush that I wanted being out of stock. Chances of it coming back into stock by Wednesday is slim.
    I bought deodorant, a brush head replacement and makeup sponges. LAME. 😆
    I seriously considered buying the Dyson hair dryer just to buying something spendy.

    • Yes, there is so much unicorn stuff out. LOL. Can’t get away from it. I just got a Revlon holo unicorn polish, too.

      Sorry to hear your Surratt blush was OOS! Hope it’ll be back in time for that December coupon Sephora usually does.

      The Dyson hair dryer looks so awesome. I can’t justify it but I always take a look. Hahaha!
