Sephora VIB Sale Picks + Holiday Kits

One / Two / Three / Four / Five / Six / Seven / Eight

The Sephora VIB Sale is happening right now so I figured it was fitting to share my picks with you! There are two weekends left in the sale. The dates and coupon codes are as follows:

VIB - 11/9 - 11/12 20% off with code ROUGEBONUS

Beauty Insider - 11/16 - 11/19 15% off with code BIBONUS

A ton of the holiday kits have launched so I went through all of them to figure out which ones were actually a good deal. It seems like a lot of times there isn't as much product or the packaging is limited edition so the prices are higher for no real reason. I like to take a good look at the actual products before recommending anything to you. 1. Drybar Full Size Faves -- This set includes two of my favorite haircare products, the triple sec and the detox dry shampoo plus a heat protecting spray. The set is $49 and is a $72 value. The Triple Sec will refresh your hair adding volume and also acting a bit like a dry shampoo while smelling AMAZING! The Detox Dry Shampoo is a tried and true dry shampoo that soaks up the oils in your hair leaving it smelling amazing and totally refreshed. I'm excited to try out the third product, the Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler because I'm sure I'll really like that one too. 2. Philosophy Hope Is In Your Hands Set -- This set includes 4 hand creams for $28 (they retail for $10 each). I've smelled two of them and they both smelled AMAZING. Philosophy products are really great quality and this set would be perfect to break up and put one into each stocking if you're exchanging gifts with a few different people. 3. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray duo -- The UD setting spray is a cult classic for a reason, it really works wonders! This setting spray will make your makeup last literally all night just like the name implies. This set is a great deal because it includes two full-sized bottles which retail for $32 each and the set is $39 for both. Add in your VIB discount and it's even more of a steal! 4. Charlotte Tilbury Party Girl Eye & Lip Kit -- CT is a brand that I've been wanting to try out for a long time and just haven't for some reason. I saw this kit and decided this was the time to try it out. Some of the reviews talk about the sizing and how it's small, but I think it'll still be a good deal if you haven't tried out the brand before. 5. Sol de Janiero Bum Bum Carnaval Extravaganza -- This kit is seriously a major steal. I've tried the body butter and the body wash and they both smell insanely delicious. They're definitely a splurge and more luxurious products, but in my opinion they're totally worth it especially in this set and during the sale. These would make a great gift for someone too! 6. Stila Big Shots Redux Eye Set -- This set includes the Stila Stay all day waterproof liquid liner and the Stila huge extreme lash mascara both of which are favorites of mine. The set is $25 and it's a $45 value meaning you get almost an entire product for free. They're both full sized and this is a repeat set from last year. If you've been wanting to try either of these products out, I highly recommend scooping up this set! 7. Origins Mini Mask Musts -- If you've been following me for any amount of time, you know how much I love Origins masks. I have 7 or 8 of them and have loved each and every one of them. This set comes with 5 mini masks. I haven't tried all of them, but the set does include the Origins original skin retexturing mask as well as the Origins clear improvements activated charcoal mask. Those are two of my absolute faves! The price tag isn't great per ounce of product in this set, but if you haven't had a chance to try out Origins masks or if you want to break up the set to give them to friends in little stockings like I mentioned above, I think it's an awesome option to pick up during the sale. 8. Sephora Favorites Lashstash -- The Sephora favorites sets are so hit and miss in my opinion. I recently picked up the dry shampoo one and think it was SO amazing. When I saw this mascara set I knew I had to let you guys know about it. I'm a mascara junkie so it was no surprise that I've tried out (and own) a majority of these mascaras. If you want to hear me talk about each one, you can check out my recommendations video that I posted a couple weeks ago. The bottom line is that there are some amazing mascaras in here and although they're deluxe sample sizes, those usually last almost just as long as full sized ones do. Alright guys, those are my picks out of the holiday sets for the Sephora VIB sale. If you want to hear about other recommendations I have, check out my video from a few weeks ago where I also talk about these sets and then I also did a recommendations video from the sale a few months ago and I would still recommend all of those products as well. I hope this post was helpful for you. Let me know what you guys pick up from the sale, I'm so curious what goodies you're getting! xoxo, Sarah
