And just a reminder (because you know I always have to say this in my Sephora posts), if you don't already have free shipping due to VIB Rouge 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. 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. With these sets and the holidays coming up, this service can REALLY help if you're placing multiple orders.

Thanks again, @isu1989, Lk, Janet, PokemonParade, Nobu, JENN and behindreverie, for the hot tips about these sets and freebie codes!


  1. YES!!!! I just passed out.....I just ordered the Trending set. Thank you so much. All of the sets are so cute and I want them at a time!!! I might pass by Sephora on the way home to see if any of the sets are in store. Xoxox!!!!

  2. ugh. my poor wallet. I just did the trending: beauty's most coveted. everything is an A+. except the stupid red urban decay lipstick. I hate how it's always a red lipstick in the kits that appeal to me. just not my color. thank you for the heads up. i used my 10% VIB renewal code so at least i saved a little haha. thank you.

    1. Thank you , you reminded me I never used mine. It "expired" but I will still try! Here's to hoping...

  3. Kind of disappointed that the Give Me Some Bold Lip set only includes one full size item. I was expecting more.

  4. Oh, man, I've been waiting on these for weeks! I was able to snag the Beauty's Most Coveted and Glow For It! Thanks for the heads up!

  5. Sephora play spots are open. Just signed up.

    1. Thank you for the heads up. I just got signed up, too!

  6. I kinda just mentally tossed my body onto some of these like Steve Rogers on a dummy grenade.

  7. Me too! Just hope I like it. Some reviews are less than stellar but I'll try it for a month or two and see how it goes.

  8. Oh G, thanks for the apology in the first sentence. I cannot even tell you how much $ I've spent between Ulta and the holiday sets at Sephora and now these. It's only September! What are we going to do? The shelves at Walgreens aren't even up yet. We're doomed. That said, I am getting the Let it Glow Set.

  9. The caudalie products bug me. They use these big containers, but you don't get a lot of product. It just "looks" like you're getting a lot, but the containers are not filled all the way.

    1. It's part of their marketing strategy. The same way that perfume bottles are always specially shaped. More difficult for the consumer to gage how much is in the bottle so they cannot compare...

    2. Elemis is a major offender in this respect as well, heads up.

  10. Phew, I don't like, want or need any of these! It was a close call though!

  11. I just ordered the Glow for It set. Excited!

  12. I was going to jump on the Beauty Most Coveted set because it's a steal at $75. I was reading about the Foreo Luna play that's in this box and it's a trial size unit with up to 100 uses. Meaning when the battery dies, the machine no longer works and you cannot replace the battery. That was a HUGE let down for me. I wonder if there is a way to open it and replace the battery?

  13. any idea if/when exclusive sephora jc penny favorites will be released?

  14. I've been waiting on that Give Me Some Bold Lips set since it was first teased. But now that I have names to look up for swatches, I'm not impressed. The colors will not look good on me. The only one I would want to keep from the set is the KVD and I'll just buy the full size for cheaper. I wish Sephora would do a dark/vampy lip set. I'd be all over it.

  15. I think Im gonna cry.

    There are so many I want.

  16. I may or may not have ordered 6 different sets. I love these sets though! They allow me to try different brands and products I would never buy otherwise. I've found some HG products using these sets.

    Besides. It's my birthday. Happy birthday to me haha!

  17. Poor poor wallets indeed!!! I want too much! Lol!!

  18. Also, G, look for news in the next two weeks of a new beauty rewards program from walgreens

  19. I am not sure if I should love you or hate you right now. lol okay i love you!!!

  20. I agree. I love these sets. I would have never tried First Aid Beauty and now it's one of my favorites.
    Happy Birthday!!
