My favorite time of the year to buy makeup is during the Holiday season. I love all the holiday gift sets and I love the sales. One sale that always takes a chunk of my money is the Sephora VIB sale. During this sale Beauty Insiders with the VIB or VIB Rouge status get a code to receive 20% off!
This is the time I usually like to pick up any gifts I want to give for Xmas and anything that may cost a bit more and that I wouldn't buy without the discount. This year my budget was not what I wanted it to be BUT I made the best of it. I've also included a few things I bought before the VIB sale, but still got at 10% off with a coupon code.
First of let me just note how adorable the gift boxes are this year. They had three sizes and each had a different design. During the sale they also gave out tote bags. I forgot to take a picture, but I do have a picture on my instagram.
On to the samples! you get 3 samples with every online order, but those usually aren't that great. I love when I get emails about special VIB Rouge codes for gifts. These I received in a cute makeup bag with the code. I love when samples are nicely sized.
These next ones I got by using my points. I love the mini FlowerBomb bottle. The mini Coach Poppy I got in store.
I will be doing separate posts for some of these products with swatches. Please let me know if there is anything you would like reviewed or to see swatches of, that way I know what to post first.
