Best Deals at the Sephora Spring 2016 VIB Sale

Sephora has 2 big sales a year and one of them is upon us – the Sephora VIB Sale from 4/8-13/16 you get 15% off all purchases. If you’re like me you want to maximize that in order to get the best value possible so you can feel like you beat the system.

Benefit Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette ($58)

benefit-cheekathon-blush-kit

If you already know you love Benefit Hoola bronzer (which is a great bronzer and contour color for people with fair to light skin) then you might as well purchase the Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer  Palette for $58 (VIB -15%= $49.30, Beauty Insider aka Non-VIB -10% = $52.20) because the Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer alone is $29 and this palette contains the FULL-SIZED bronzer plus 4 blushes and a brush! This set contains:

– 0.32 oz Dallas box o’ powder blush in Dusty Rose (full size)
– 0.25 oz Dandelion box o’ powder blush in Baby Pink (full size)
– 0.28 oz CORALista box o’ powder blush in Coal Pink (full size)
– 0.17 oz Rockateur box o’ powder blush in Rose Gold (full size)
– 0.28 oz Hoola matte bronzer (full size)
– Natural-bristle brush

This is a $145 value!! On a somewhat related note I really want this adorable Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzing & Contouring Brush ($24), but it’s only available online and out of stock:(

Clinique Little Holiday Helpers ($17)

clinique-holiday-sample-set

This set contains one product I know I love, the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, but I never buy it because it’s $39 for a small jar! It’s $9 for a 0.5oz by itself (and only available online) which makes this set seem like a great deal at $17 ($24 value) (VIB -15%= $14.45, BI aka Non-VIB -10%= $15.30). I also have been dying to try the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm ($29 for 3.8oz) which everyone loves. Clinique may remind you of middle school, but the past couple years they’ve come out with some great products! This set contains:

– 0.04 oz Chubby Stick™ Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry
– 0.5 oz Moisture Surge™ Extended Thirst Relief
– 0.5 oz Take The Day Off™ Cleansing Balm
– 1 oz Liquid Facial Soap Mild

Kat Von D KVD + beautyblender Customizable Complexion Set ($46)

kat-von-d-beauty-blender-value-set-sephora

Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation is supposed to be a wonderful long wearing, full coverage, a little goes a long way foundation. It also comes in super fair shades that other foundation lines don’t carry. If you haven’t tried a Beautyblender I’m not sure what you are waiting for they are amazing and I use mine on a daily basis. This set includes a full size of the Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation ($35), a Beautyblender pro ($20) along with 2 samples. It’s almost like if you’re going to spend $20 on a beauty blender.. why not spend $26 more and get a great foundation too!? The KVD + beautyblender Customizable Complexion set is $46 (VIB -15% = $39.10, BI-10% = $41.4). This set contains:

– 1 oz Lock-It Foundation
– Beautyblender pro
– Lock-It Featherweight Primer packette
– Liquid blendercleanser packette

 

Clinique Great Skin, Great Deal Set for Combination Oily Skin ($26)

clinique-great-skin-great-deal-value-set-sephora

I’ve mentioned a few times on the blog how much I love the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and if you want the 4.2 oz size it’s $26, so why not get a free face soap and clarifying lotion for even less during the VIB sale? (VIB -15% = $22.10, BI -10% = $23.40) This set contains:

– 1 oz Liquid Facial Soap Oily Skin Formula
– 1 oz Clarifying Lotion 3
– 4.2 oz Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
