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: 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.

I also picked up a few nail polishes by Sally Hansen (Xtreme Wear), L.A. Girl, and Pure Ice from Wal-Mart, but they don’t put the color choices on my online receipt, so I’ve already forgotten which ones I ordered!

Have you picked up any Boxing Day deals, yet? Happy shopping!

Nails Inc. Superfood Nail Fuel Collection

Haulage! Sephora Fall Sale (November 2016)

Time for annual Sephora haulage! It’s hard to pass up 20% off, even when I haven’t been shopping much at Sephora all year.

Ugh, you know it’s winter when everyone starts getting sick! My husband started feeling a little under the weather yesterday, and this morning poor Peanut started feeling badly, too. A couple of barf-ups later, he’s much better—I have a sinking feeling it’s a norovirus-kind of bug. We all got hit with it around December last year, and I hate it. I remember hugging the toilet half the night, yet not actually barfing. I hope I don’t come down with it again (if I do, it’ll probably be tonight! Joy!) and especially that our little infant Olive doesn’t get affected.

Anyway, on to the fun stuff. (Cleaning up barf? Not fun.) I posted my first order here; also, just before the sale ended, I snuck in one extra order! Here are all the goodies from both orders:

  • Deborah Lippmann Her Majesty Gel Lab Pro Set (8 color polishes + Hard Rock base & top coat)
  • Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder in Translucent
  • Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lip Color in Bloodroses Noir
  • Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in C406
  • Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer in Sally
  • Nails Inc. Superfood Nail Fuel Collection (4 color polishes + NailKale Superfood Base Coat)
  • NARS Audacious Lipstick in Audrey
  • Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette
  • Urban Decay Pro Essential Brush Stash

Freebies:

  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser & Rose Face Mask (Sephora Birthday 2016 deluxe samples)
  • Atelier Cologne Bergamote Soleil Cologne Absolue EDP (sample)
  • Atelier Cologne Mandarine Glaciale Cologne Absolue EDP (sample)
  • Maison Margiela Replica: Lipstick On EDT (sample)
  • Marc Jacobs Decadence EDP (sample)
  • Versace Bright Crystal EDT (sample)they didn’t send this! 😦
  • Versace Eros Pour Femme EDP (sample)

And with this haul, I am VIB for 2017, as well.

Sephora Fall Sale: My Haulage!

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):

My final shopping cart. (Prices not yet reflecting 20% VIB discount.)

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!Read More »
