You’re a Sephora Addict If…


So I guess it’s easy enough to know the signs when you’re a Sephora addict BUT just in case here’s how to tell!

You’re a Sephora Addict if…
You walk out of Sephora with an arm full of swatches from your wrist to your upper arm. And yeah, it’s totally possible to run out of swatch space so you have to use your friend’s arm too!

You’re a Sephora Addict if…
You think to yourself, “How the hell am I going to fit all my purchase in this dumb little basket? Don’t they have a supermarket size rolling cart?!”

You’re a Sephora Addict if…
You’re currently planning your Friends and Family order in your head and the sale is several months away!

You’re a Sephora Addict if…
You walk in telling yourself you just need to replace your moisturizer but you proceed to walk out with $500 worth of new makeup but no moisturizer!

You’re a Sephora Addict if…
Your primer is running low so you decide to do a quick stop at Sephora to replenish it but proceed to spend 60 minutes gawking at the Make Up For Ever display.

You’re a Sephora Addict if…
They know you by name at the store.

You’re a Sephora Addict if…
You stalk, literally stalk, your mail man for your Sephora.com order.

Are you a Sephora addict?

Fill in the beauty blank, “You’re a Sephora Addict if_________________________”

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‘.

    they ask you if you slept there the night before. True story. I had gone in on a Wednesday evening close to closing time and went back the very next morning as soon as they opened to get something I had forgotten. One of the girls there that I know saw me and asked me if I had slept there. I’ve also been told that I should actually work there on several occasions but I’d rather be a customer than an employee.

    You know you’re a Sephora addict if…your family doesn’t bother to ask what you want for birthdays/Christmas/etc because they just hand you a sephora gift card ❤

    You know you’re a Sephora addict if…you hide your receipts/packages from your boyfriend so you don’t get THAT look

  • Jamie

    When they ask you if you’re a Beauty Insider and you shamefully pull that shiney red card out of your wallet.

  • Chic

    You’re a Sephora addict if you end up helping the girls around you look for a specific product because you know EXACTLY where everything is or you recommend products to random customers.

    We’ve done it plenty of times! x

    OMG I know that look from my boyfriend. Too damn bad. I miss the part where he pays for any of it.

    But I think it’s really simple: you know if you’re a Sephora addict if you are VIB Rouge for this year and next year. When I thought about how I qualified for that distinction, I said to myself “that’s crazy”.

  • Jay

    Whenever you walk in they say “Welcome back! How have you been”? When store associates start to seperate me as a regular I take that as a clue to evaluate my life & spending habits LOL.

    Place multiple orders in the same week. Or if you visit the website 10+ times per day, and use your shopping cart as a running ” to buy list.”

  • brenda

    When you drive your boyfriend crazy, because of the one thing you really want and they don’t have it anywhere.. he already drove to 4 sephora’s for me, lol!! Still don’t have it though.. 🙁

  • blee

    When you give them your card and she says,” first of all thanks for being a VIB”. And some of the sales associates know you by your fist name 🙂

  • Katherine T.

    When I got that pop up message/email stating I’m VIB Rouge through 2016! Yikes!!

  • Siobhanne

    When you go prepared with your own baby wipes to wipe off the swatches and your 9 year old cries if she doesn’t get to go “swatching” with you.

  • Christina

    …If you walk into a mall blind-folded, you are familiar with the “Sephora Smell” as you walk by the store, and just know you are by one.

    …If you picture yourself in one of those black and red dresses.

  • Ashley

    if you….check their website daily and make sure their 3 free samples selection is good enough to make you purchase a random product you don’t need just so you can have some new perfume samples, you’ve never smelled before:)

  • Vail Valley Girl

    During the year that your New Years Resolution was not to buy anymore cosmetics, let alone at Sephora, a Sephora store goes out of business and shuts down.

    Ok, not really. But, felt like it.
    I did receive a few complaints about the resolution that year.

    You know the colors and lines better than some of Sephora artists themselves and can quote off the website.

  • Katie

    You might be a Sephora addict when you got a job there in order to pay for your addiction. And even though you work there, all the other things on this list apply to you. *stalking the mailman for my new perfume tomorrow…*

    • Isabella Muse

      OOO what perfume Katie!? I have a perfume order coming today too!

  • Jai

    When you take your 8 and 9 year old cousins in there to entertain them ( it worked… )

    When you dont even bother to send your package to your house , sending it instead to your job. When you get said package , coworkers see it , and they say “Really more makeup”??

    Speaking of which…. I could use some sephora therapy.

  • MandyB

    When you never need help, but know so many of the girls working there that you pick someone you saw on the floor when the clerk asks if anyone helped you at the till so that the associate can get the credit!
