If you haven’t heard, the Sephora VIB sale is on! Depending on your Sephora status, the dates and percentages off vary. I look forward to this sale. Here are items I found splurge-worthy, but they are by no means necessities.


Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Moisturizer

This is a highly hydrating mask. It has a wonderful, spa-like scent. I love it for locking in my skincare in the evenings.

Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer

This moisturizer is less about the experience and more about the way it feels. It is unscented. On first feel, I thought it was going to be really slippy on my skin like a gel, but it also provides a lot of hydration. It makes my skin feel plump.

Peter Thomas Roth 24k Pure Luxury Lift and Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches

I cannot attest to lifting and firming because I didn’t document with photographs, but these feel so good and make me look alive. I love slapping them on while I drink my coffee before putting on makeup. The gel really stays in place, and the gold feels luxe.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum

I really liked this chemical exfoliant. It made my skin look so glowy in the morning. If you haven’t used a chemical exfoliant before, I recommend starting slowly.


Tarte Finger Foil Paint Palette

I have the first version of this palette, and it is my favorite glitter formula. They are best applied with the finger (hence the name) and don’t require a glitter glue. I typically don’t take much time doing my makeup, but this allows me to add a pretty pop. This is the glitter I used on my mom to create her eye look below.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palettes

I love the ABH eyeshadow formula, and have hit pan on a lot of the Modern Renaissance shadows. It has a beautiful fall color scheme, but this brand also has a lot of other pretty options. I have my eye on the Sultry palette. I used a mix of Raw Sienna and Burnt Orange on my mom.

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume II

This is my favorite mascara of all time, and I’ve tried a lot of formulas. It’s so thickening and buildable. I’m definitely going to repurchase during this sale.

Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base

I love this paired with the Charlotte Tilbury mascara. I always have a great lash day when I use these together.

Jouer Molten Glow All Over Face and Body Highlighter

This is the most beautiful makeup product I’ve ever owned. It feels so luxurious. It also gives off a pretty glow and shimmer without being chunky and glittery.

Sephora #Lipstories

I am so happy with the lipstick I purchased in YumYum. It’s comfortable and the packaging is so cute.

Aside from the refills mentioned in this post, I plan on purchasing the Briogeo Banana and Coconut Superpack and the Fresh Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash. I hope they live up to the hype. Again, these are all purchases I consider splurges. I really take my time before spending money on these types of items. One thing I like to do is keep a list of items I’m interested in in my phone. Rarely does an item make it from the wishlist to the cart to my hands. Let me know if you are planning on purchasing anything from the sale!
