Haul: Sephora Appreciation Sale

Sephora basically sprung onto everyone a VIB appreciation sale as a way to showcase their new rewards system (an increase in points-per-dollar and a cash back option in point redemption). I honestly love the new reward options, and this sale was a perfect surprise for me to grab a few things I’ve had my eye on, but didn’t want to bite the bullet just yet!

I’ve done a post before on the 2-times-per-year Sephora sale, so if you want to check out some other great products, I’ll list that here, but this post is all about the products that I picked up yesterday.


Details on the sale:

Rouge members will receive 20% off their purchase from August 24 to September 3. In store, you don’t need to use a code, but if you’re shopping online the code is “YESROUGE”.

VIB members can shop the sale with a 15% discount from August 20 to September 3, with the code “YESVIB”.

Beauty Insiders can receive a 10% discount on those same dates with the code “YESINSIDER”.


What I picked up:

NARS Atomic Blonde Eye & Face Palette


This palette is the perfect quick and easy bronze palette. It offers the essential bronze eyeshadows that you would need to get the “VS model glow” but it ALSO has a beautiful highlighter and bronzer (and NARS is known for their bomb bronzers)!


Smashbox Cali Contour Palette


I love a quick and all in one palette, and Smashbox really hit the nail on the head with this one. This contour palette has a bronzer AND a contour powder, an under-eye setting powder (which is my favorite one on the market), two shades of highlighter, and a beautiful peachy-pink blush. This palette can work for ANYone and is a STEAL at only $39, which the sale makes even cheaper!


Milk Makeup Concealer

I’m pretty attached to my NARS radiant creamy concealer, so this is a stretch for me, but I have heard great things about the Milk Makeup line, so I figured this would be a great way to dabble into the brand. I’ll get back to you guys on my thoughts!


Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer


This is a product that I talked myself out of getting before the sale because of the cost, but when I was notified of the sale, this was the FIRST item I thought of. Tatcha is a very luxurious skincare line, and I’m sure it’ll be a great primer (I’ve heard it is from many beauty bloggers). If you’re looking for true skincare products, the water cream is also a great product that would be worth grabbing since you can save some $$$!


DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo

Tried and true dry shampoo here, so I had to re-stock on it because I can’t be without it. If you’ve previously been bummed by the original scent, try this “lush” scent!


Dior Miss Dior Eau de Parfum


Perfumes are another thing I grab when Sephora has a sale, because let’s be honest, these can get pricey! I’ve been wanting to pick up the Miss Dior perfume for a while now, so I finally went for it. It’s a very warm scent, which I tend to like for date nights, and it’s a floral perfume, so it’s light enough for an everyday scent.


Drunk Elephant C-Tango Eye Cream

I saved the best for last, because this is my favorite product that I picked up yesterday. I’ve already used it twice because I love how moisturizing it is. You guys already know that I love Drunk Elephant, and I’ll list my previous post on their products here. This is a newer product from their line, combining the intense moisture of the polypeptide moisturizer and the brightening elements of the C-Tango day serum. All I can say: if you need an eye cream (or don’t think you do, but you really do…) you need to pick this up. (At least get a sample, you guys, I’m serious.)


I hope you enjoyed hearing about what I picked up from the sale. Please let me know what you guys have/are planning to pick up, and if you have any questions, as always, feel free to reach out.
