What I'm Buying with My Sephora VIB Discount...

In case you haven't heard, the Sephora VIB sale is back!
  • If you have VIB Rouge status, you have by now received your email with a code for 15% off all orders from 4/12 - 4/21. 
  • If you have VIB status, you'll soon get an email with a code for 15% off all orders from 4/16 - 4/21.
  • If you have BI status, you'll soon get an email with a code for 10% off all orders from 4/17 - 4/20. (Thanks to Phyrra's great post here for this info.)
The great thing about this event is that you can use your code as many times as you like within the given dates. And you can use your code either online or in-store (either enter your code at checkout online or show the email that Sephora sent you at checkout in-store).  And if you have Sephora Flash, that's even better if you're ordering online since you'll get free shipping on top of your discount.

Want to know how I plan to use my 10% off code? (Yes, I'm just a BI since I haven't spent over $350 at Sephora within the last calender year.) Here you go:

Sephora Inside JCPenney Sephora Favorites Summer Obsessions Set
(retail: $39, available only at Sephora Inside JCPenney stores)

Thanks so much to reader @makeupyoya on Instagram for the photo above. She shared this new Summer 2015 set with me last night and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since!

Keep reading for details...

The Sephora Inside JC Penney Summer Obsessions Set is available exclusively at Sephora inside JC Penney stores, in-store only. This set includes:
  • Beauty Blender Pro (full size)
  • NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight (full size)
  • Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray (1.0 oz)
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Fearless (deluxe sample)
  • Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara (deluxe sample)
  • Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer (deluxe sample)
  • Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up Highlighter (deluxe sample; not pictured)

Considering that the NARS gloss retails for $26, the Beauty Blender Pro retails for $19.95 and the UD All Nighter 1.0 oz. retails for $14, this is an awesome deal for $39 total. And to get an extra 10% or 15% off depending on your status? Well that's a no-brainer!

How do you plan to use your Sephora discount? Think you'll stop by your local Sephora Inside JCPenney for this set?

Thanks again, @makeupyoya, for the great tip and pic. I really appreciate it!


  1. G, I literally just said OMG outloud!!! You are hurting my wallet today! I'm rushing over to the Sephora inside my local JCpenney on my lunch! Thank goodness the mall is just down the street from where I work!

    1. I got the set! Everything looks amazing! Can't wait to try the products! I couldn't wait until I got the 10% coupon, too scared it would sell out!

    2. Probably good you went ahead and got it, I can't find it on the website now!

  2. I'm thinking I'll stock up on my holy grail primer, some of my favorite First Aid Beauty skincare items, and try the NARS tinted moisturizer. I've been using Laura Mercier's, but NARS is a bit cheaper.

  3. Is the VIB sale usually 20%? Or is that just the winter VIB sale?

  4. I think I might finally bite the bullet and buy the beauty blender.

  5. I think it's lame that VIB Rouge is also 15% off. You'd think that you would get more benefits.

  6. You're going to love the Beauty Blender! I've tried using the RT Sponge and it just isn't as good (especially since it's really hit or miss on how those sponges are made).

    1. I agree, I finally broke down and bought one and it's so much better. Haven't touched a foundation/concealer brush since.

  7. Honestly I'm not the biggest fan of tarte's mascara! At all I have 2 full tubes of it (came with the QVC kit I got for christmas) and a mini tube I got in my ipsy bag. That's a pass for me that set, I got it last year and wasn't impressed with anything but the nars bronzer.

    I'm planning to get my fiancé some cologne soon since his birthday is soon. Maybe a small treat for myself.

  8. That is a really excellent deal...

  9. The Spring BI sale was 15% off at every level the past two years iirc. Unfortunate that they lowered it to 10% for BI and kept it 15% for the upper tiers.

  10. I hope to pop in on my lunch break today. I think I'm going to get this but if it is sold out I may splurge on a Nars Audilicious lipstick. I tried one in the store and they feel so luxurious

  11. I wish the Sun safety set was available now.

  12. Now this is a set that might sneak its way onto my list lol. I've been eyeing that Pro Beauty Blender for a while now and I could definitely use that setting spray since I lost mine

  13. Ok, definitely getting this! I find the Sephora inside JCPenney also has the best clearance sections!

  14. It's probably sold out by now ):
