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.

Sale Alert: Sephora VIB 20% Off Starts Today (And my VIB Order) [November 2015]

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):

Ardency Inn Modster Mānuka Honey Enriched Pigment Duo in Rose Gold & Sunday
ARDENCY INN Modster Mānuka Honey Enriched Pigment Duo in Rose Gold & Sunday.
I’ve had Rose Gold on my wishlist for a long while, so when I saw this full-sized duo for C$33 (that’s C$26.40 after the discount), I snapped it up!
