Sephora 20% Off VIB Rouge Event and Coupon Code

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


I can’t believe the Sephora 20% Off VIB Rouge Event is already here. Starting November 4th all Sephora VIB Rouge Members can get 20% Off their total using promo code 20ROUGE at Sephora.com in at Sephora stores and at stores inside JCPenny. Best part? No exceptions! Everything from high-end to mid-range brands and products are on sale! You’ll get 20% Off your total with absolutely no exceptions. The sale runs from November 4th to November 7th. Typically the code can be used and re-used in the past but I can’t confirm if that will work this year.

The Sephora 20% Off VIB Event starts November 11th at Sephora.com and the coupon code is 20VIB.

I’ll be doing Holiday Gift Guides all next week to give you some ideas of the items I love and the items I think you can miss!

Now, time to start your wish list! Tell me what you’ll be buying during the Sephora 20% Off VIB Rouge Shopping Event!

I can’t wait to hear all about what’s in your cart.

Mine is overflowing at the moment!

Need some help deciding what to purchase?

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‘.

    Danget! My first year as a rouge, and I’ll be completely broke during these dates! Haha.

        • Isabella Muse

          VIB=$350 spending in a year/VIB Rouge=$1000 spending in a year VIB/Rouge have different perks throughout the year. Rouge had first dibs at Holiday sets this year with an in store event, free flash shipping, a special hot line number for questions, first access to new releases, See here: http://www.sephora.com/rouge for the different tiers in the reward program

    I think I already mentioned that I’m waiting to get one or two of the Viseart blush palettes (I have all of the eye shadow palettes), and maybe the new Huda eye shadow palette although I know nothing about the brand but I’d take a chance since it looks lovely. At $80 each for Viseart and $65 for Huda, even with 20% discount, I think I’ll be doing a quality over quantity haul.

    • Isabella Muse

      I really want the Huda Eyeshadow Palette but I think it’ll sell out before FF :-/ I wanted to buy it from her site but the shipping was obscene so I decided to wait! Quality over quantity is always a good plan!

  • Jen R

    This is what I’m thinking right now…but my loves list is literally twice as long – EEP! May shift a few things that I can get at Ulta over there, since I have about $65 free money to spend there right now.

  • A. Rizzo

    Oh, there will be a BI event? I didn’t think there was going to be one.

  • Kimmwc03

    I’m still modifying my list so I’m definitely open to your suggestions.

    Right now, I’m thinking of:
    Sephora Favorites Scouted by Sephora
    Huda Beauty lip kit (the Muse one)
    A Drunk Elephant skin care set (not sure which one yet)
    something by Surratt beauty (probably one of the lipsliques)
    Chanel No. 5 L’Eau

    • Isabella Muse

      hah I like you’re buying the Muse one 😀 Excellent pick on the Chanel! I’m about to review the scouted by Sephora set shortly will let ya know how it is!

  • Cait

    I’ve been eyeing that crazy expensive dyson hairdryer…this may be the time to take the plunge.

  • Tammy

    I really want that Huda eye shadow pallette, and I just know it will sell out before the VIB ROUGE sale. It was already sold out when I went to her website just now. The Nars x Sarah Moon Give In Take pallette is another one I’m interested in, but I want to swatch it first.

    • Isabella Muse

      Def going to pick that one up before the sale! Huda has a huge following so, I’m worried it’ll be gone before the sale starts!

    • Isabella Muse

      Yes, it shouldn’t be an issue if you’re ordering from sephora.com’s portal. Sephora France doesn’t have a discount and Sephora Canada not sure when there event takes place. But if you’re a Rouge Member via Sephora.com’s US portal you can use this promo code.

  • Danielle

    I’m going through a mask phase, so lots of face masks. Here’s my list- I probably need to go through and edit, but this is it so far.

    Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask
    Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask
    First Aid Beauty 5in 1 bouncy mask
    Fresh Crème Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask
    Peter Thomas Roth Mask Sampler Kit

    • Isabella Muse

      Farmacy is fab 🙂 I’m going through a mask phase too! I typically use sheet masks a few times a week but I’m suddenly on a cream/mud mask kick!

  • Bella

    Thanks for the info! I’ve been stalking my inbox for the “Bat Signal”

    Definitely will pick up the Denis Gross weekly peels.
    And will stock-pile my faves: NARS tinted moisturizer & Guerlain mascara 😉

  • Lynn

    I’ve been adding things to my Sephora cart for about a week now… I need to narrow it down!

  • Liz

    I am VIB status but not Rouge… Do I still get a discount? Maybe 15%? I wonder if I enter the coupon code for 20% will work….

  • erinface

    I am super broke, so my list is short, but sweet:

    Herbivore – Pink Clay Gentle Cleanse Clay Soap Bar
    Too Faced – Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick – Candy Cane
    Juliette Has a Gun – MMMM… travel size

    If money weren’t an issue, I’d be getting:

    BURBERRY – Festive Mini Lip Velvet Set
    Foreo – ISSA™ Professional Set with Marvis – Mistletoe Must-Haves
    Yves Saint Laurent – Black Opium Gift Set
    NEST – Candle Trio Set
    Juliette Has a Gun – MMMM…3.3oz
    Farmacy – Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask

      • erinface

        It smells fabulous. Similar to Pinrose Secret Genius and Commodity Gold. It’s warm, inviting and sexy.

  • Lynna

    I’ve just qualified for VIB a few days ago. Am I able to access this VIB sale or I need to wait for next time? As I’ve not received any mail from Sephora for this event…

    By the way, I wonder if those hot stuffs which might be sold out during VIB Rouge would be restocked for VIB sale.

    Thanks for your advice. I really look forward to that crazy sale 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      These dates are four VIB Rouge members, if you’re Rouge you can use the code. I can’t say what they will and won’t restock unfortunately! Hope this helps!

    • Nan

      I just qualified for it too. I stopped in Sephora at JCPenney and they made sure everything was updated, gave me my card, discounts, and a bunch of free samples. If you have a Sephora or Penney store nearby you might stop in.

  • *inatay02*

    I just purchased the Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette, Cover Fx Enhancing Drops, and a few skin care items with the Employee appreciation 20% a friend let me in on last week so this time I probably won’t purchase anything. (I’m trying to be good as usually when this time rolls around my list is around $700!! Eeks!).

  • Victoria

    It is usually later in November! I have not received any email or snailmail. I am VIB status so hoping it won’t be long, but I could have missed it if not for you. Thank you Muse! So much! <3

    • Isabella Muse

      Hopefully by Monday you’ll get something Victoria but if not VIB have a date too just not this one! My pleasure!

  • casey23

    Muse, do you have any information on regular VIB discount??? This is my first year as a VIB and I really want to live it 😛

    • Isabella Muse

      I do but I can’t release it :-/ It’s embargoed for some odd reason! I’ll be posting about it soon though!

      • casey23

        Of course not a problem! I can definitely wait for your post 🙂 at least it exists (i hope)

        • Isabella Muse

          Don’t worry it exists 🙂 VIBs will get their 20% off too! Promise 🙂

      • Ara

        That’s great thank you! 🙂 Do you think this sale is better or should I wait for black friday/cyber monday sales?

        • Isabella Muse

          there are unfortunately no sales at Sephora on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. 20% only comes once a year so I wouldn’t wait for a percentage off during Black Friday/Cyber Monday. The only deals available are Black Friday ones which are gift sets with deluxe size samples that are typically $10 to $15 each but they tend to sell out sooooooooo fast. As for Cyber Monday, Sephora doesn’t really do much for it but this year might be different but it is highly doubtful they’ll do a discount off for Cyber Monday! Hope this helps!

  • Trina

    So VIB Rouge only have until 11/7 to use the code and thats it?
    or are we able to use during the VIB time frame too?

    • Isabella Muse

      You have until the 7th after that VIB have time to use their code you can’t use the Rouge code during the VIB Event.

  • Anna

    Do you know if i can buy several pieces of one item? Like e.g. me and my sister want to by the same foundation shade?

  • El

    Do you happen to know if it goes live at midnight or later in the day? As in….do I need to set my alarm clock for 11:59 PM? Bahahaha!

    Here’s the list I have so far:
    •Anastasia lip glosses in Metallic Rose, Vintage, Kristen
    •Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set in Trendsetter
    •Murad Rejuvenating Lift for Neck and Decolette (re-purchase, it’s the best!
    •Kat Von D Lock It Setting Powder

    •Nest Eae De Parfum Collection (Christmas present)
    •Foreo Luna Play
    •Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads

  • Angela

    Does sephora restock before the vib sale??? LITERALLY EVERYTHING IN MY CART IVE BEEN WAITING TO BUY IS OUT OF STOCK. Vib rouge members buy everything and theres nothing left for the vib members

  • stephanie

    You guys think that VIB Rouge members can still get the regular VIB discount during this weekend right? I’m not done shopping!

    • Isabella Muse

      Nope, VIB Rouge was last week, you won’t be able to use the VIB discount sadly.

    • Isabella Muse

      the vib rouge expired Monday. VIB codes are active on the 11th for VIB members only.

  • Michelle

    Have anyone used the VIB20 Code yet? I found the code still not work this morning (Nov 11 around 8 am). Thanks!

  • Linh
