DON'T FORGET to check out the Sale Page and the Sephora Favorites sets before you place your orders (the Bronze Bares All set from Summer 2015 was still in stock as of the time of this post). And just a reminder (because I say this in every Sephora post), if you don't already have free shipping due to your VIB status, you should really consider signing up for Sephora Flash if you don't already have it. For $10 a year, you get free unlimited 2-day shipping on all orders at Sephora. It pays for itself after just two orders. Plus, your subscription starts the moment you add it to your cart, meaning that anything else you buy will ship free.

And last but not least...

I want to thank Isu for this extra tip! She spotted a NEW Sephora inside JCPenney-exclusive Sephora Favorites set called Fall's Most Wanted that retails for $30, exclusively at Sephora inside JCPenney locations. This set contains:
  • Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Opal 0.085 oz.
  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara 0.1 oz
  • Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Underage Red 0.04 oz.
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil (size/shade unknown)
  • Urban Decay Iconic Eyeshadow in Twice Baked (full size)

Whew! I think that about covers it...for now. Thanks again, Isu Hapz, for all of the hot tips!


  1. ROUGEPERK didn't work for me as VIB, but hopefully it does for other people! :)

    1. How weird! Are you sure you have at least $35+ worth of items in your cart? I just tested it (again) with one $39 item in my cart and it worked just fine! Try again. :)

    2. Same, I just tried with one of the new MJ blushes ($42) and it would not work :( (I'm only VIB though.) Hopefully it works for others though!

    3. Ugh, I'm SO sorry! I am definitely not Rouge and it's working for me (I just tried a third time). I wonder why??

    4. I am rouge and added like $60 and it wouldn't work for me, so weird!

    5. Hey are you all copy/pasting from my blog? If not, make sure you're using ALL CAPS (see comment below)!

  2. I also was not able to use the code rougeperk as a vib with over $35 in my bag but then I tried capitalizing all of the letters ROUGEPERK and it worked!

    1. Oh yes, great! I always assume that people will just copy/paste the codes from my post, but I'm glad you mentioned that it does need to be all caps. So glad it worked for you!!!

    2. I'm just VIB, typed the code in with all caps and it still didn't work for me. (I have $37 in my bag, fyi.) So maybe it was working but they fixed the glitch? Or for some strange reason is just not working for some of us? Oh well, it would've been a nice freebie. Glad some people were able to take advantage of it!

    3. I placed a $52 order on this evening and used the code, Rougeperk, without a problem. However, about 15 min later I received an email stating,
      One or more of your items is out of stock and your order #xxx has been modified. You have not been charged for these canceled items. We have included the information below so that you can review the details of your order. You can review your order status at any time by visiting My Account.
      The following item(s) have been removed from your order due to out of stock inventory:
      Item Price Qty
      Buxom Haute Pink Lips deluxe sample set
      ITEM 1631035
      Frustrating and I emailed them about this. Time to take this code off your list. Thanks anyway!


  3. Hey G!

    The code "VIBOMEGA" gets you a Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan deluxe sample in Tantric 102 - 0.08 oz. I just used the code so it is still valid! I saw a picture of it on Instagram and it seems to be a great sample size!

  4. I tried all caps and it still didn't work for me (I'm VIB Rouge too...)

  5. I'm Rouge and it didn't work for me either. I capitalized it too. Wasn't there another recent promo that used the same code? Was it the YSL one?

  6. I'm VIB and ROUGEPERK is working for me on a $51 order

  7. For those VIB where the ROUGEPERK code did not work try ROUGEGIFT. This code should give you the same three items.

  8. Some codes only work if you're using a computer, not a mobile device...

  9. Thank you G for always posting the codes. I got the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I will say I did not get any of my 5 free samples. But Sephora customer service is great. I called and they gave me 125 points.
