Ready for week two of the Sephora Holiday 20% Off Event? I felt like I was done last week as I placed a pretty big order but obviously I’m not because I have a few more items on my list. Yes, I’m silencing hating myself and also, gleefully rubbing my hands together in anticipation.
Update: Sephora has extended their sale and you can enjoy 20% Off if you’re a ROUGE/VIB Member with promo code ENJOY.
I think hauling higher-end brands is always a good idea during the sale because it’s really rare brands like Tom Ford, Dior, Chanel, and other niche brands go on sale. I mean, Neiman Marcus really threw us a curve ball late last month when they had almost EVERYTHING 20% Off but I do feel that’s a rare, rare deal. In some ways, I think higher-end brands have kept their integrity and respect by not doing tons of different palettes and endless collections. They simply have given into the FOMO culture that many mid-range brands are pushing on us. They are also not social media crazed which makes for a more pleasant shopping experience as I don’t want things pushed into my face every few minutes on Instagram and Twitter.
But higher-end brands aren’t always in a lot makeup lovers line of vision due to prices. That’s why it’s always nice that Sephora has absolutely no exclusions during their annual Holiday sale. 20% off means 20% off anything and everything which gives those who had their eye on their Guerlain Lipstick for the past year but simply wasn’t willing to spend that kind of money, a chance to actually indulge and feel good about saving a little money doing it.
I also think 20% off becomes majorly beneficial when hauling makeup vaults! Vaults are already prices at a great price but with 20% off they become an even great discount. It’s also a great time to call up another makeup loving friend and maybe ask if they want to split a vault! This especially great if you already have some of the items in that vault but not all of them. Perhaps your friend wants to ones you don’t and suddenly you can split the cost and the discount gets even deeper.
Here’s my pick of luxury makeup, beauty, fragrance, and vaults that you can save big one!
Stila Liquid Eye Shadow Vault All Eyes On You ($156 After Discount/$13 Per Full-Size Eyeshadow)
This is actually currently in my cart! I have a few of the shades already but I thought I could gift anything I already have! The price is amazing as typically Stila’s Eyeshadows are $24 each and purchasing them in this vault with this discount makes them nearly 50% off!
Tarte Tartelette Vault ($72 After Discount/$24 Per Palette)
This palette actually makes a come back from last year and is still a great value! It’s also a good throw back to when Tarte actually had good quality palettes! The palettes are $39 each but after discount they’ll set you back $24 each! Most people own all of these already but if you don’t it includes:
- Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette
- Tartelette In Bloom Palette
- Tartelette Toasted Palette
Clarisonic Mia Smart 3-in-1 Connected Sonic Beauty Device ($159 After Discount)
I need a new Clarisonic like I need a hole in my head. These cleansing brushes feel like new Iphones or Tablets, you just have to have the latest model! The newest version doesn’t only cleanse but it also has other heads you can purchase that adjust issues like under-eye puffiness and a massaging facial firmer as well as a brush for flawless makeup blending!
Viktor & Rolf Magic Discovery Set ($108 after discount)
I recommended this last week and I still feel like it is a well worthy haul! I blind purchased a lot of the Magic Perfumes in September and they are lovely! Truly some of V&R’s best offerings (especially Dancing Roses) but I do so wish I had a set like this to try them before hauling the more expensive bottles! This set is a great way to indulge in beautiful fragrances that are quite costly sold individually!
Fenty Match Stix By The Dozen ($108 After Discount)
I hesitated and chocked last week when I placed my order and skipped out on this 12 piece collection of mini shimmer sticks but on Monday I caved! And I’m so glad I did because this is a gorgeous assortment of shimmering sticks that can be used on your face or eyes for a luminous glow! I don’t typically do highlighter but these look amazing on bare skin!
Tom Ford Lost Cherry ($256 After Discount)
I wish with all my might I waited to indulge in this because the $320 price tag makes my eyes crossed! I don’t regret my purchase but I do wish I had waited and scored it at a discount. This or any Tom Ford Fragrance at 20% off is quite generous. I’m loving this mix of woodsy notes and cherry! Truly a gorgeous gourmand! It’s getting rather poor reviews but I actually really love the way it smells! Not too woodsy, sweet cherry, very warming with hints of spice! Yum! I realize not everyone is willing to spend over $200 on a bottle of fragrance but those who love Tom Ford’s line will love the fact all of his scents are included in the 20% off discount at Sephora.
Charlotte Tilbury (20% Off? HELLS YES)
Charlotte Tilbury has never had a percentage off on her website that I know of. Although, occasionally she does have seasonal items that go on sale! This year, a majority of her gift sets have sold out a Sephora and no wonder with the entire line 20% off. This is one luxury brand well worth indulging in at these prices!
Hourglass N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil ($35 after discount)
I cringe every time I spend $44 on Hourglass’s lip oil! But at 20% off I find it a LITTLE easier to swallow! I love, love, love this formula. It’s super hydrating, heals my incredibly dry lips, and leaves them looking glossy and shiny. I chronically apply this in the Winter and it’s totally a staple and holy grail item!
Maison Louis Marie (20% Off)
Maison Louis Marie just launched at Sephora and some of their fragrances are well worth hauling now (regularly $85 discounted to $68). These are described as earthy fragrances but don’t be mislead. Some are sweeter botanicals that are amazingly strong, unique, and lovely. And don’t miss out on their perfume oils which have incredibly long wear!
Guerlain KissKiss LoveLove Lipstick ($30 after discount)
Now is a good time to grab up some of Guerlain’s yummy, creamy, glossy KissKiss LoveLove Lipsticks!
Huda Beauty The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette ($52 after discount)
Huda’s latest eyeshadow palette launches and it doesn’t come cheap but you can save 20% off it using your discount code!
Juliette Has a Gun Mmmm ($108 after discount)
Mmmm is probably one of my fav fragrances from the brand’s house. It’s sweet, juicy, slightly musk, and warm with vanilla! Yum!
Maison Margiela Replica Lipstick On ($101 after discount)
Have you always wanted to smell like lipstick? Here’s your chance as Replica brings back the old Hollywood glam days of red lipstick with notes of powder and iris! This will remind you of your grandmother’s lipstick! Powdery, vintage, beautiful! Smells just like lipstick!
