The Sephora VIB Holiday Shopping Event is upon us! It’s definitely one of the most anticipated sales of the year, with all the holiday sets available and an amazing 20% off everything, it’s the perfect time to stock up on your daily needs and check off some items on your holiday gift list.
This year Sephora divided the event into 2 weekends, from 11/6-11/9 is reserved for those with VIB Rogue status, and from 11/13-11/16 for the VIBs. So while the VIB Rogues are shopping away, I researched and made a list of the new items I want to get next weekend. Instead of doing a general shopping guide, I thought it would be more fun and personal to share with you what’s on my wishlist and why, so lets get started!
- Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
This has been on my want list since September! Ever since I got some sample to try for my friend’s wedding, I have my heart set on getting the full size during the VIB sale. Of all the foundation I’ve tried, this one has my favorite consistency and weight, I love how it’s so easy to apply and blend, at the same time it looks very natural. Even though it’s at a higher price point compare to other foundation, since I don’t use it everyday I’m hoping it’ll be able to last me a while.
- Urban Decay Brow Beater Microfine Brow Pencil and Brush
My girl crush Claire recently mentioned this in her favorites video, she has compare and said that this would be a good alternative/switch up for the Anastasia Brow Wiz (which I will also be restocking during the sale) and it definitely piqued my interest. I’m always open to trying new brow pencils since it’s the one thing I use every day, and I cannot wait to see how these compare.
- Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette
This one is definitely the least practical splurge item on my wishlist, but I just couldn’t help it because it looks so beautiful. I love to play around with contour, though I usually don’t do that during the week because the extra 10 minutes in bed always sounds like a good idea. However, I’ve been doing it more and more on the weekend, and really love how it gives a subtle lift to your features. I’ve been using the Becca Lowlight/Highlight Perfecting Palette Pressed and I seriously love it, but I’m very interested in the idea of cream contour as most people say it looks a lot more natural.
- Verb Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner
I saw this product in one of Sephora’s marketing email a while ago, I don’t really have a particular reason why I picked these over the other hair products, but I just thought they look very interesting, the packaging is cute, and the price is very reasonable. I love trying out new hair products because I still have yet to find the absolutely perfect one for me.
- NARS Kabuki Ita Brush
Another product for contouring. I’ve been using my Real Technique brush when doing contouring which has been working fine for me and gives a really natural contouring, but I really want to try to achieve the more chiseled look and so far the Ita brush has the best review of its kind.
- Urban Decay Matt Revolution Lipstick in 1993
Yes, yes, I have more than enough of these dark neutral/nude lip color, but they look the best on me, and I just can’t get enough. Though I have some similar colors in my collection, I want to try out different brand and formula just to see what else is out there.
- Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
I’ve tried a few primer samples but none really stick out to me, this is just one of the ones that looks interesting to me and I thought the name is pretty fun. Will report back how I feel about it if I end up getting it.
- WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner Sampler
Another Claire influenced want item. She swears by the Wen cleansing conditioner and seeing how awesome her hair looks always, I’ve been considering trying it out. I don’t know how I feel about not actually shampooing my hair, so have been hesitant on buying the full size. But with this little sampler pack I think it’ll be a great way for me to try it out.
- Yves Saint Laurent Black Oplum
I got a little sample size a while ago, and when I first smelled it, I didn’t think I would be very into this scent because it’s a little strong and sweet for me, but once I put it on and as the day goes by I find the scent more and more pleasant. I already have so many other perfumes, but am definitely tempted to get this one during the sale.
- Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
A very highly coveted item that’s got great reviews from multiple bloggers. I’ve tried something similar to a liquid lipstick a few years ago, but hated how it made my lips feel so I’ve not used one since. But after seeing everyone rave about it, I think I should be more open to the idea of it. Hopefully the formula will not dry out my lips.
- Viseart Eyeshadow Palette
So… Let’s be honest, I don’t need another eyeshadow palette, but just look at this beauty! The one I’m most interested in is the Neutral Matte palette (of course), this will definitely be a splurge item and I’m still on the fence because of the super high price tag. I’m hoping to read more about it before next weekend, if you have one yourself please let me know what you think!
