Sephora Friends and Family 2014 News

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Sephora Color Festival Blockbuster Palette Holiday 2014

The Sephora Friends and Family 2014 Sale starts today and runs until October 29th giving you 20% off your total purchase! Of course, you do need to have a friend or a family member that works at Sephora to take advantage of this sale. If you do have someone who works as an employee at Sephora you can kindly ask them for a unique code so you can shop the Sephora Friends and Family 2014 Sale in store or online at Sephora.com. Each code is unique unlike the year’s past where there was one code that everyone could use.

Reader’s have told me in the past if they ask an employee nicely they are sometimes able to secure a code from them! I’ve never actually been bold enough to do this myself and I don’t know anyone that works at Sephora to get a code from.

Don’t be discouraged though as news of the Sephora Friends and Family 2014 Sale is a good thing because it means that Sephora will be extending the discount soon to BI, VIB, and Rouge members! Last year the sale started November 7th and ran until the 11th and the year before it was on November 5th. I imagine this year it’ll be around November 6th! I think they’ll likely send out invites and e-mails to Rouge members first and follow up with VIB ones and finally BI ones!

I hope news of the Sephora Friends and Family 2014 Sale brings a smile to your face today! I know I always look forward to the sale and I’m eagerly awaiting news for the general public to arrive (I’ll be sure to tell you all about it when I know!).

Happy Hauling to those who do have a code!

Can’t wait? Try the Sephora Matchmaker Game to earn 10% off your purchase now!

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. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I am so ready for the sale even though my wallet isn’t.

  • Brigitta

    My Sephora cart is stuffed and ready to go…pared down from over $300 to about $170…it’s mostly lippies, half Bite Beauty and one Stila Liquid Lipstick (my favorites) and the UD Naked foundation!

    • Isabella Muse

      nice haul there birgitta 😀 you’re good to go when the codes hit 😀

  • shelby

    My sister works at Sephora and didn’t even tell me yet :O

    • shelby

      texted her right after I saw this post and got my code, yay! 🙂

  • Girlybeautyxo

    One of my instagram friends who works at Sephora asked if i wanted a code then dm’ed me one! The niceness of people I’ve never even met is so awing.

  • lawren

    this is why i’m glad to have a personal friend that works at Sephora. She usually ends up giving me more than one…good for holiday shopping 😡

  • Jenn

    Sephora F&F sale is here?!Really wish I knew someone who works at Sephora so I can get my hands on the Hourglass blush palette!

  • Justine

    Hi Muse! I’m a long time follower of your blog and a Sephora employee, so if you’d like a code, just let me know. I can send you the physical card if you’re going in store or just take a pic of the code for shopping online.

    • Isabella Muse

      justine you are awesome thank you SO much 🙂 but I got one already but I appreciate it! <3!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kayla

      Hi Muse! I am a reader from Singapore and I really love reading your blog as it covers really anything makeup related under the sun. Your swatches are gorgeous and really helps me in deciding if I should get it. I love shopping on Sephora.com and using a freight forwarder to ship my items to Singapore. I really hoped I knew a friend who works in Sephora USA but that seems impossible due to my geographical location. HAHA. Would love one so I could stock up on products I couldn’t get at my local Sephora.

      • Isabella Muse

        hi kayla 🙂 thanks for being a reader 🙂 I’m very flattered to hear my blog has helped you make some great purchases 😀 I know the feeling 🙁 I’m always lemming products from abroad and trying to track down the best ways (and cheapest shipping) to get them! Maybe a makeup forum friend from the US can help somehow!?

        • Kayla

          Thank you so much for your advice! ^^ I managed to find a few nice ladies on instagram who are willing to send me a code. I’m really pleasantly suprised with their generousity! I’ve gotten the code and I’m loading up my cart! 🙂 Can’t wait to get hold of all the Christmas goodies!

  • Heather

    I too am so wowed by how generous people are being. I was searching a forum site for advice on the best “photo-friendly” makeup for my upcoming engagement pictures and was offered a F&F code by another poster. I had just won a 10% off code from the Sephora game and figured that would be my best discount (since I am not a VIB) and now was the time to order. My planned haul includes: Makeup Forever HD foundation (the best for pics I have read), either the ambient blush palette, the tarte blush palette, or the benefit blush palette (torn between all of them but I think the hourglass palette has my heart), a Sephora favorites kit, and some other fillers to get me past the threshold for VIB status.

    • Isabella Muse

      that is awesome heather 🙂 makeup lovers are the best and so generous 😀

  • Sara

    Whoot! I just took advantage of the 20% of UD sale, but I’ll start keeping my eye out for things I want to save for when us BI’s get to use the discount.

  • Kira

    My favorite time of the year! Unfortunately I don’t know anyone that works at sephora, but I have lots of things in my wish list ready to go! Thanks for updating us, Muse 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      don’t worry kira the vib event is on the horizon!

  • Jackie

    I wish I knew someone who works at sephora! All the girls at the sephora near me are so rude, I actually HATE going into the actual store to shop, so I just spend all my money at sephora.com 🙂

  • Kat

    I was not able to get one when I was at the store yesterday. The sales person said it needed to be emailed to me? I am looking forward to when they open it to customers! 😃

  • Lacy

    Shucks, I don’t have any friends or family that work at Sephora 🙁 But I have my cart stocked and ready to go for the VIB. I’ve been awaiting the sale as I know it was early November last year. I can’t wait to try the new Boscia Cool Blue Hydration Essence!

    What’s on your list to haul?

    PS to anyone & Muse – I’ve been having a hella terrible time with my mascara smudging under my eyes the past couple of months, even if I don’t wear any on the bottom and skip eye liner… Any suggestions? My Benefit They’re real is even smudging on me and if I don’t wear that I usually wear L’oreal Million Lashes or It Cosmetics Hello Lashes… it’s super frustrating and I’ve been thinking maybe it’s my concealer but that’s almost impossible as I haven’t switched to a new concealer in at least a year in a half. I either use It cosmetics bye bye under eye or use marc jacobs re(marc)able full cover concealer and set both with powder so IDK what gives. It’s like all of a sudden my mascara just wants to sabotage me and working with people’s and their finances face to face all day is embarrassing looking like a crazy raccoon lady! Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    • Isabella Muse

      don’t worry it’s around the corner lacy 😀 TOO MUCH! hahahaha! I already did on order as someone gave me a code but I’m still repiling the cart for gifts and such! hmmmm try powdering under your eyes prior to mascara. Just dust a fine layer under your eyes and blend it out. It could soak up excess oil and make the smudging stop a little bit! Hope this helps!? I love Ben Nye Banana Powder to set my concealer, brighten up under my eyes that should work! I have a review up 😀

  • cat

    I’m always super ready for this sale and not ready at all at the same time. I’ve got some items I wanted but I don’t know if I’m set yet on must haves. I’m going to take this announcement as a push to go to the store and swatch and finalize my list. My hope though is that I’ll eventually get to a point where I have real holy grails and can just use this sale as a chance to stock up.

  • Nida

    I wish i knew a sephora employee 🙁 Most of the stuff i want is selling out and until the vib sale my basket would be half empty 🙁

  • Jess

    Aww darn I’m a BI and I don’t know anyone that works in Sephora =( bummer!!

  • Lori P

    I didn’t know about this until I went into my local Sephora and one of the managers there is a very good friend of mine and gave me two codes (one for me and one for my mom). I probably won’t use mine until NEXT weekend when it’s payday! “D

  • Marisa

    I got a code emailed to me, but it can only be used online. Boo! I’ll wait ’til Nov. so I can purchase in store.

  • Liz

    Thanks for the info. Think it’s actually Employee Appreciation sale and F&F will be another time.

  • Terry

    Hey Muse! Thanks for the heads up, this is why I can count on you with all these sale dates lol. The sale starting today is different from the one in November right? Will rouge get better discounts you think? Thanks love

    • Isabella Muse

      my pleasure terry! I don’t know if a sale starting today, which sale is that? I don’t know if rouge members will get better discounts, they haven’t in the past….sorry I don’t really have insider info about any of these things 🙁
