Sephora VIB Sale Picks That'll Become Re-Purchases

One of the best sales of the year, the Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Event is here! If you're a Rouge member (God bless your bank account!) you've been able to shop for about a week now but starting today, everyone can shop no matter your status - Rogue, VIB or Beauty Insider. You can get 20%, 15% or 10% off *almost* everything in the store and now is the time to stock up on favorites, try new things you've been eyeing and splurge on something you normally might not have. The only exclusions I'm seeing is on Dyson products and limit three Drunk Elephant products per transaction - so get shopping! Here's my top picks that I think know will become some of your favorite re-purchases ever!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18

1. Sephora Green Tea Sheet Mask: out of all of the different sheet masks out there that I've tried out, I always go back to the Sephora Collection masks. I love how well they work and how different they make your skin feel and look after using it - that's one of the main things I look for in a mask some kind of instant proof that it works! The green tea mask is the most soothing in my opinion so that's the one I'd buy over and over again. Reg. $6

Rouge: $4.80

VIB: $5.10

Beauty Insider: $5.40

2. Violet/Plum Mini Eye Shadow Palette: best part about this palette is it's mini and great to travel with! It fits so easily in any travel or makeup bag. These are my favorite colors with my green eyes and if you have green eyes too, you especially need this! These Natasha Denona palettes have the best pigmentation and they blend in so easily. They'd be great gifts too! Reg. $25

Rouge: $20

VIB: $21.25

Beauty Insider: $22.50

3. Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturizer: will there ever be a time that I don't include this moisturizer in a beauty post? Probably not! ;) Now's a great time to get another tub of this since it's on sale. I typically get the 1.7 oz container and it lasts me 2-3 months, using it twice per day. I love putting it in the fridge 10 or so minutes before using it, it's soo cooling on your skin! With this sale it may be worth while to get the larger size to save more, but either way you'll save! Reg. $39

Rouge: $31.20

VIB: $33.15

Beauty Insider: $35.10

4. Josie Maran Argan Oil Concealer: I've used the Naked Concealer for a long time but hearing that this had argan oil in it - I had to try it! It works SO well and really covers up anything you're trying to. It's super creamy and hydrating so you don't have to worry about that cake-y look at all. Reg. $28

Rouge: $22.40

VIB: $23.80

Beauty Insider: $25.20

5. BareMinerals Blemish/Redness Reducing Primer: I LOVE this stuff! I've been using it for a few months and it's helped the redness I often get on my cheeks every time I use it. It's hydrating and honestly during these hot summer months, I've used it as a moisturizer. Reg. $26

Rouge: $20.80

VIB: $22.10

Beauty Insider: $23.40

6. Tea Tree Blotting Papers: these are probably my most often re-purchase from Sephora. I buy them almost monthly and they work so well! I have combo skin, but I'm not too oily or too dry - just semi combo if that makes sense! I use one or two throughout the day and they work so well to mattify your skin. Reg. $8

Rouge: $6.40

VIB: $6.80

Beauty Insider: $7.20

7. Beauty Blender Set: I'll be honest, I don't use beauty blenders that often. On a daily basis I wear very little face makeup and I've just always been lucky to have really even, clear skin. #thankyouparents! It's hard to justify spending $20 for a Beauty Blender sponge, and although they work the best and better than any others I've tried (I know most would agree with that!) I don't use them enough to buy those $20 sponges often. This set of blenders have been the best dupe I've tried yet! There's four sponges per set and they're all different shapes so they're great for blending. Reg. $8

Rouge: $6.40

VIB: $6.80

Beauty Insider: $4.80

8. Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion: this is one of those, "didn't know how much I needed it" beauty buys! It's a lightweight serum that helps to even out your skin tone and keep your skin clear and beautiful. Everyone needs a serum, and if you're on the hunt for a new one I highly recommend this! Now's the time to buy it with this sale! Reg. $62

Rouge: $49.60

VIB: $52.70

Beauty Insider: $55.80

9. OUAI Scalp & Body Scrub: I saw something on FB the other day that said girls have three types of showers - the quick body shower, the body wash and hair wash shower, and the proper 1 hour exfoliate, cleanse and wash shower! Couldn't be more true, hah! For those "proper 1 hour showers", this scrub is SO GOOD. I'm not a huge scrub fan for some reason, but this one is good for your body and your hair. I've used it mostly in my hair and do it once a week or once every two weeks. It works to keep your scalp moisturized (which in return will make your hair grow quicker!) and body as well. I'm loving this and you can't beat the smell! Reg. $38

Rouge: $30.40

VIB: $32.30

Beauty Insider: $34.20

10. Self-Tanning Water: ok, who else is intrigued just by what this is called?! It's literally a water that you spray on your body, and within 4 hours you'll have a bronze, tanned glow. It's amazing! I've been in the sun a lot this summer so I'm already tan, but I've been using this because I've been so interested in it and it works so well. You don't have to worry about it staining your clothes or sheets, and it doesn't leave you streaky at ALL. It comes in light, medium and dark so you can choose the level of tan you want to achieve. It doesn't have that gross self-tanner smell either to it. I will say, I've found that one use takes a lot of product but so far, so good. I'll report back once I use it again! Reg. $28

Rouge: $22.40

VIB: $23.80

Beauty Insider: $25.20

11. Drunk Elephant Sunshine Drops: when I lay in the sun, I get tan but my face doesn't ever get much color. I also wear SPF on my face religiously which is likely why, but it's worth it! These sunshine drops are basically an all-over bronzer (that's what I like to call it!) and they give your face such a beautiful glow! Reg. $36

Rouge: $28.80

VIB: $30.60

Beauty Insider: $32.40

12. NARS Orgasm Lip Balm: I'm not a big lipstick or lip gloss girl... And if I do wear it, it's usually a light color or pretty pink. I'm not sure why I've never gotten into wearing lipsticks but I always am envious of the girls who pull off bold lip shades so well! If you're like me, this lip balm is the PERFECT thing for you. It's in NARS' infamous Orgasm shade - which is beyond stunning - and it feels like a lip balm that you'd wear to help your lips. It's simply stunning and has the perfect pigment to give some color without being too much. Reg. $28

Rouge: $22.40

VIB: $23.80

Beauty Insider: $25.20

13. Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm: a makeup remover and cleanser all in one! I love this stuff! It's another product that's so great to travel with because it weighs much less than a liquid makeup remover or makeup removing towelettes. You rub it into your skin and it gets rid of every last bit of your makeup while cleansing and leaving your face feeling softer than ever. I always stock up on my Clinique favorites during this sale! Reg. $29.50

Rouge: $23.60

VIB: $25

Beauty Insider: $26.55

14. Volcano Candle: I can't believe this candle is now available at Sephora! If you've ever walked into Anthropologie and loved the smell, here's how to replicate it. I burn this candle all of the time and gift it even more. It's so beautiful and now's the time to buy while you can get it on sale! Reg. $30

Rouge: $24

VIB: $25.50

Beauty Insider: $27

15. Briogeo Replenishing Superfood Conditioner: I'm not one to be picky about the shampoo/conditioner I use or spend a lot on it, but this conditioner is basically the best thing you will ever smell, and best thing you'll ever put on your hair. They have a matching shampoo, but I just use the conditioner and use it a few times a week - sort of in place of a hair mask. This stuff completely hydrates your hair, smells amazing (did I say that already?! It's sooo good) and literally makes your hair have so much life to it. Reg. $28

Rouge: $22.40

VIB: $23.80

Beauty Insider: $25.20

16. Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter: this will quite literally make you look like you have your favorite filter on your face! It's incredible how well this stuff works - I tried out a couple of samples and it blew my mind! I can't wait to get my hands on the full size of this. You can use it as a highlight, a primer, mix it with your foundation, or even use just this on your face like I did! Reg. $44

Rouge: $35.20

VIB: $37.40

Beauty Insider: $39.60

17. Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask: my favorite moisturizer, turned into a face mask! Dreams do come true! ;) Sleep with this on your face and come morning, you'll have the softest skin that glows! It works wonders and works even better together with the moisturizer. Give me all the Moisture Surge products! Reg. $35

Rouge: $28

VIB: $34.15

Beauty Insider: $31.50

18. ABH Norvina Eyeshadow Palette: I'm sure you've seen this palette with how popular it's been since it came out, but it really is so good! The colors are gorgeous - so easy to mix and match with and you can never go wrong with ABH shadow shades! If you've been on the fence, now is the time with this sale going on! Reg. $42

Rouge: $33.60

VIB: $35.70

Beauty Insider: $37.80
