Hmmm Now What Can I Spend It All On?!

My beauty bank is huge but Sephora’s VIB gifts aren’t all that fab…come on guys! I need a good VIB Gift to spend some of these points on!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    How about those 2 tickets for that Cinderella showing? That’s only 250 though haha

  • Camille

    Hey, I have a question and I know I could probably google it (Sorry) but do these points ever reset or expire or can I just endlessly build them up? πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      camille so far none of mine have expired πŸ™‚ I believe my bank is about a year and a half old now.

  • Tots

    Haha!! Wouldn’t it be great if you could redeem your points for credit at Sephora?

  • Michou

    Hahaha, I’d have a similar number if I had never spent mine… though you DEFINITELY spend more than I do!!! Hmmmm, they should really consider doing full size products for 1000 points. Perhaps we can start some kind of petition to Sephora for this?

  • Janet Shepherd

    Just get a massive range of gifts & send them to Sephora-less me here in Australia! πŸ˜€

  • Hilde

    Oh my.. I’m green with envy!!! I have about 160 points right now, and I really want the Smashbox kit!

  • Ruth

    O_O wow, muse, that is some serious banked points! i just got the laura mercier set since i’ve never tried her products. so far, so good but it’s not true love yet. but yeah, mostly their sets aren’t too much to write home about. What would be awesome is if they converted them to sephora dollars to spend! the hauls that you would have!

    • the Muse

      lol ruth yeah…! omg I’d Love that even if they gave me a $1 for every 10 points or something I’d be happy!

  • Majick

    HOly CROW! can I show you how to use them? LOL I have to agree the gifts really haven’t been all that good. Of course the samples seem to be lacking these days too. I guess everything is cheapening out.

    • the Muse

      when we get married our vib banks combined, we’ll be a vib super couple! πŸ˜€ *nods* true story.

        • the Muse

          yeah and it was surprisingly fast (about 90 minutes to get it rolling as at&t kept freaking out as I was using the replace option on, last year I stayed up until like 3 am and at&t’s servers were down and I couldn’t check out grrr finally did after three and half hours of trying! you?! I didn’t get the dreaded two weeks to ship message PHEW! However, my confirmation came in a little late (next day) so worried I’ll have to wait two weeks but I don’t mind, believe last year my phone came within two weeks of ordering but don’t quote me. I know they supposedly sold out of the initial shipment within an hour so I hope my 5 was in that initial shipment hehe!

          • Cj

            Well…. I completely forgot to find out what time pre orders started πŸ™ When I woke up today I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! SI me and a couple friends are gonna camp πŸ™

          • the Muse

            it’s just a two week wait at this point so don’t bother camping, just order it online, the most wait you’ll have is end of this month beginning of October.

          • Cj

            Sadly I don’t think I can wait that long lol. I’m gonna be phone less soon and me without a phone is like a crack addict going through withdrawal. But it’s ok we’re gonna make a fun time out of it lol PARTEH @ AT&T!!! Lol!

          • the Muse

            i didn’t sell off my 4s yet to be honest, I def can’t be phoneless either so ca relate ;-D when I have 5 in my hands I’ll sell off the other but not before ;-D! LOL! ya know, at&t sometimes does pre-order early, next time log into your account and check. I typically purchase directly from but at&t does do a prelaunch so you might still be able to get in on that without a long wait even though the phone has officially launched for sale.

        • the Muse

          ps on top of this, my kindle looks ready to ship too but not getting my hopes up ;D! now the wait for the ipad mini, new nook, and Assassin’s Creed III

          • the Muse

            yeah *shakes head* little absurd with the tablets but couldn’t resist the new fire but I have a feeling I’m going to hate it as much as I did last year and end up returning it. they are charging $15 to remove ads, it doesn’t ship with a power adapter, and supposedly it’s sluggish according to reviews…basically sounds as bad as last year’s release! :-/

          • Cj

            Geez lol if you ever get tired of the iPad you can always ship it to me πŸ˜› I’ll take the burden off your hands lmao. But really I’m just as bad lol. I just bought the new clarisonic >.>

          • the Muse

            omg I’m shopping for a clarisonic now lol! is that awful or what?! ;-D hehe you can have the ipad if the mini pops up! hehe…! i can’t get on board with ereading on the ipad those the nook/kindle temptation.

          • Cj

            Oh god we have problems. Let’s go to tech/beauty rehab together lol! I can’t wait for an iPad mini too lol they’re gonna be awesome. Now I just need to buy a new case for my new phone xD idk bout you but case buying is just as much fun as buying the phone to me lol!

          • the Muse

            amen! please! Imma be broke ;-D I can’t wait for etsy to flood in with cool 5 cases!

  • Chynna

    My store lets me get multiple gifts at once, where the website does not. You could grab a couple of things at a time. I’d say just spend them on whatever – it’s not like you couldn’t spend 2000 of them and miss out on the next 500 point thing. Just grab whatever, stuff you can use for travel, etc.

  • Abbi P.

    WOW! I thought I was up there, I’m going to show this to my boyfriend so I look good ;)Oh and yeah the offers have been stinking for awhile now, hoping for some good stuff over the holidays!! Though I did pick up the recent 100pt MUFE lippie in N45 red just cause it’s my fav color!

  • kiwikiwidragon

    I tend to redeem quite often. But its been a while. Going to try and redeem when the UD palette is back in stock πŸ™‚
