Holiday Ready Beauty Finds to Buy During the Sephora Holiday Bonus Sale Event


It's the most wonderful time of year in more ways than one! ;) There are so many amazing sales popping up as the holiday season is quickly approaching and one of the best every single year is here - the Sephora Holiday Bonus Sale! It's been opened to Rouge members for a few weeks, but the VIB and Insider days to shop are here! Prepping your skin for all of the holiday parties, events, food you'll be eating and guests you'll be hosting and seeing may require an upgrade or two in your skincare routine, or maybe just a new makeup product that will make your skin glowy and beautiful! Get shopping, this sale is too good to miss!

  • If you're a VIB, you can get 20% off starting today through Monday, 11/12.
  • For all of the Beauty Insiders, your days to shop with your 15% off will be 11/16 through 11/19 - so fill up your cart and get ready to shop next week!

Codes to shop:


VIB: VIBBONUS
Beauty Insider: BIBONUS

The only important/significant limitations I'm seeing in the fine print is the normal for any Sephora sale - you're limited to the purchase of one Dyson item, three Drunk Elephant items, and three Tatcha items per SKU per transaction. So if you have more than three of those Drunk Elephant/Tatcha products, split 'em up into different orders! You have unlimited use of that promo code while the sale lasts.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13

1. Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter: if you've been following along for a while - or at least the beauty content around here - you probably know I'm not all that big on face makeup. I love the way a great foundation looks, but it just isn't for me - I love a natural, glowy and simple look and really believe that glowy, beautiful skin comes from your skincare routine so I always opt for lighter makeup. That being said, this stuff is quite literally your favorite Instagram filter in a bottle! It's a complexion booster that's VERY lightweight - you can mix it in with your foundation if you do wear it! - and can be used in almost any way you can possibly think of. Add a pump to your moisturizer, to your foundation, or use it alone as a highlight! It's stunning and somehow just makes your skin look like a natural, real life filter. Perfect for all of those busy mornings, or when you need something extra special for the holiday season.

2. Shimmer Eye Shadow Palette: these colors are the most beautiful shades of eye shadow ever! They're the most perfect for the holiday season and go beautifully together or separately. They're SO pigmented and stunning, and you can easily travel with this mini palette! It's also a great gift at only $25!

3. Dry Scalp Hair Treatment: this time of year always affects my skin but also my hair - luckily my hair isn't dry, but my scalp is. This stuff is a miracle worker! I just started using it about a week or two ago (and kind of wish I waited to get it during this sale, hah!) but it's basically a moisturizer for your scalp and keeps it hydrated all season long.

4. Checks and Balances Face Wash: this is another product I just started using about a month ago (and have talked a bit about already) but I can already see results and LOVE how fresh it makes my skin feel! I use it every morning along with the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream and the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer and it's the best combo and so refreshing!

5. Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Sunshine Drops: I'm 100% convinced that this is MAGIC in a tube! I've been using this since this past summer and it makes your skin look so stunning! When you use this, it looks like you just got back from a trip to Mexico and are glowing from within. I'm obsessed with this stuff and will never let myself run out! These Sephora sales are the best time to stock up on your favorite Drunk Elephant products since they are a bit pricier, but they are ALL worth every single penny. The formula of these products is like no other! I highly recommend getting these drops - I add a pump into my Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturizer every day and a lot of days, it's the only face makeup I'll wear. It's that beautiful!

6. C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme: the holiday season is one of - if not THE - busiest times of the year for all of us for so many different reasons. That probably means not as much sleep as you need every night, and when your face is feeling and looking kind of dull from the lack of sleep and going nonstop, this brightening gel will save the day. It's SO refreshing and is filled with Vitamin C to help brighten your skin and deeply hydrate too. It's a miracle worker and I use this stuff daily! If you're looking for something to help brighten, this is your best bet.

7. Sephora Collection Concealer Brush #71: you will never use any other concealer brush again once you try this one! I SWEAR by it! I don't use concealer all that much, but when I do need it, this blends your concealer and covers any blemish so incredibly well.

8. Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser: I got this to try out about a month ago and have been using it at night since. It removes leftover makeup/dirt and leaves your skin feeling fresh and beyond clean! I never doubted how impactful a Sunday Riley product would be since all of their skincare is so incredible, but this exceeded my expectations. I just bought a second bottle (first purchase of the sale!) because I've had little to no skin issues since using this stuff! And probably my favorite part about it - it doesn't leave you feeling dry like some cleansers do. It's hydrating and light while still working its magic!

9. Marvis Whitening Mint Toothpaste: it's no secret that we all want to look our best for the holidays when we're seeing friends and family that we haven't seen in a while, and if you need something to brighten your smile this will do it! I've only used it once so far so I'll keep sharing how I like it, but so far so good. The best part is it's actually a refreshing mint - it doesn't have that fake mint taste that some toothpastes have!

10. All-Nighter Setting Spray: this stuff is no secret to anyone, I know, but it's an essential and especially for the long, busy days during the holidays and for holiday parties and get-togethers! This mini size is so easy to carry around with you and travel with also.

11. NARS Orgasm Lip Balm: the most beautiful and only lip color you'll need ever. I love bold lip colors for the holiday season but I don't always love bold colors on myself, so I often opt for something lighter and more shimmery. It's natural but a beautiful pink and you can't go wrong there!

12. GloPRO Microneedling Tool: Sephora's sales are also a great time to buy something pricier that you've been eyeing, like I have been with this microneedling tool! This is the new pink sparkly version and you can bet I'll be buying it once it's available. Cannot wait to try this out!

13. OleHenriksen Goodnight Glow Sleeping Creme: put this on before bed and you will wake up to the softest, most hydrated skin EVER. I just began using this but I don't know why I didn't sooner! I look forward to putting this on before I sleep - that's how good it is.

XOXO -A
