Ok ngl, every year I feel like I turn a blind eye to sales because they stress me out and then yall DM me and are like “WHAT ARE WE BUYING AT THE SEPHORA SALE?!” I'm like crap I'm the worst hahaha and last year I really was stressed and then I had to do a campaign about the sale and memorize these talking points about the tiers and NOW IT’S INGRAINED IN MY SOUL. 

SO this year I am beating you to the punch - I have broken down EXACTLY what you should buy during the Sephora Savings Event.

The savings event, idk why they don’t just call it a sale, is broken into three different tiers: Rouge, VIB, and Insider. 

Rouge - if you are psycho like me and shop Sephora like you shop groceries. 

VIP if you are a responsible gal who likes makeup and wears in at least 4 times a week. 

Insider if you are a makeup beginner / minimalist. 

Obvi joking about the labels but I really do think us rouge members have a bond… we shop…. a lot. HAHA. so here ya go… buckle up because SURPRISE it’s LENGTHY !!!!!

BUNDLES: (good gifts, etc.) I am weird about bundles bc it feels like you are hoarding small samples SO these are ones that I REALLY believe are worth it, or would be a great gift for christmas bday etc. <3

Skin Care:

Algenist 10 day transformation - Includes the Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser (my GO TO), setting mist, and their anti aging cream. This is my OG skincare line but she ain’t cheap so get it on sale !! 

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Serum Secrets - this comes with the famous magic serum and lip oil. The magic serum can replace your moisturizer to PREP YOUR SKIN like a cloud baby bottom. It’s amazing. I can’t recommend enough.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream 3 Steps - truly anything CT is good for this sale. This has the serum, magic cream and the NIGHT CREAM. Omg it’s so good. 

First Aid Beauty FAB Faves - ok these are my FAVS in one. Great for sensitive skin or girls who like clean beauty! All around my favorite brand that I rely on, like a healthy relationship lmao.
