What to Buy at Sephora 2019 Spring VIB Sale
So now that you know what the discount is, what should you get!? Sephora has SO MANY products it can be super overwhelming. Here’s some of my top suggestions for my favorite Sephora products of all time.
What Makeup to Buy at the Sephora VIB Sale
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($64) is one of my favorite foundations of all time. The finish is natural and perfect. The undertones are a touch orange which helps cover up my dark under eye circles and blue veins. It feels weightless on the skin and it looks great in photos. It’s pricey for foundation so the VIB sale is the time to get it so you’re not paying full price!

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40 ($39) This is my daily go-to foundation. It’s much more full coverage than a BB cream yet it feels weightless. I’d say the finish is more demi-matte so I still set this with powder. I love it and highly recommend trying it.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Matte Perfection Powder Foundation ($20) This powder has incredible coverage! You will look like an airbrushed doll. LOVE it!!
Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer ($30 or $16 for a mini) this is the perfect bronzer especially if you have fair to medium skin. It’s not too orange, it blends nicely, and won’t look like you smeared mud on your face. Try the mini if you don’t believe me- it will last you a while too! Cameran Eubanks from Southern Charm and Kyle Richards from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills both wear this too.
Contour and Highlight
Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour Refillable Palette ($49) This palette is really superb. The quality of these powders is excellent and they are PIG.MENT.ED,!! A little goes a LONG way. I love these powders when I want to go super full glam. I especially love using a combination of all 3 of the highlight powders to set my under eyes.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil ($23) in Taupe has been my ride-or-die for YEARS. The Brow Wiz ($21) is excellent, but I feel like the Perfect Brow Pencil lasts longer AND you can sharpen it to get a finer point and therefore more hairlike strokes. The DIPBROW Pomade ($18) is also lovely, but comes out very intense which is difficult to make look natural especially for brow beginners. The color taupe is nice and ashy so it will work for a lot of brow colors and will never look too orange.

STILA Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($22) I’m torn whether this one or the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is the best liquid eyeliner of all time, but lately I’ve been gravitating towards STILA. This lasts a long time without drying out which I love because a black liquid eyeliner is not part of my daily makeup routine. I also love how fine the tip is on this so you can get a super precise line.
STILA Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Bronzed Bell ($24) Hero product alert! SUCH a gorgeous product that is fairly idiot-proof and can take any eyeshadow look from glam to YES MA’AM!
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow ($18) I have finished 2 of these. Do you know how many lip glosses I own!? I almost NEVER finish a lip gloss, and I’ve finished TWO of these. Perfect everyday color, perfect formula, stays on but not too sticky.
Beautyblender ($20) You can never go wrong with a beautyblender. Almost every Housewife uses them and they are just the best for blending all of your liquid, cream, and powder products. I always get mine damp before using it.
What Skincare to Buy at the Sephora VIB Sale
BELIF Moisturizing Eye Bomb ($48) Silky, smooth, and you undereyes will soak it right up. I wish this wasn’t so pricey because it’s amazing. If you’re looking for a good under eye cream give this one a try!
Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer ($68) I bought over $400 worth of Drunk Elephant and a lot of it I did not like.. like at all. This was the one stand out product. I love how the product dispenses through a push down top so you don’t stick your grubby little fingers in. This moisturizer is creamy without feeling sticky or too heavy on my combo/oily skin. At the very least get the Drunk Elephant option as your Sephora free birthday gift!
I’m a SERIOUS SPF pusher. I’m like a mom- “Get out of the sun! Cover up! Are you wearing sunscreen!? It’s time to re-apply!!” The most important step in anti-aging is sun protection! It’s much more affordable than Botox or getting skin cancer, TRUST ME.
Sephora Favorites Sun Safety Kit ($39, $114 value) This comes with 12 mini SPF products to get you through this sunny spring and summer. I love that they’re tiny it makes them perfect to travel with. This is also great if you don’t already have an SPF you love. Dermatologists always say the best SPF is the one you’ll actually wear! They also donate $25 from the sale of these kits to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center so you’re basically doing charity by buying it!

Hydrating Face Masks
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask ($25) so this isn’t a traditional mask because you don’t actually wash it off. It’s more of an incredible silky gel moisturizer. It’s great for parched skin and I use it overnight and during the day if my skin is feeling dry. I’ve repurchased this several times.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask ($48 for 2.25 oz) This is another super moisturizing mask that you leave on over night. It also works awesome as an undereye cream or under makeup as a moisturizer/primer. This mask is thick and creamy unlike the more gel-like consistency of the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, but is still cooling like the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. It was formulated to be great for everyday use, for people who travel a lot and have dehydrated tired skin, or for busy moms whose skin needs a pick me up. They also just came out with a mini which is $25 for 1oz.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ($20) Don’t sleep on this amazing product! This thick lip balm comes with a tiny spatula so you’re not digging your dirty fingers in it and you will wake up with it still on! I wear it before bed and before applying makeup in the morning. Highly recommend this.
Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy ($13) OMG amazing! Everyone I have try this buys it ASAP. Super glossy so it’s great during the day alone or over a lip liner or lipstick. Plus it’s not too thick or sticky and actually feels like it makes a difference in your lips!
What Fragrance to Buy at the Sephora VIB Sale
Lancome La Vie Est Belle L’Eau de Parfum Spray ($98) I’ve already written about how men love this perfume. If you don’t believe me get a sample, put it on then order an Uber and see what the driver says. This scent is super feminine, warm, spicy and sweet with notes of iris, vanilla, and praline.

Maison Margiela ‘REPLICA’ By The Fireplace ($126 for 3.4 oz or $28 for 0.34 oz) This fragrance is like the polar opposite of La Vie Est Belle – it’s super masculine (it’s unisex) and sexy and spicy. If you’re looking for something amazing and sophisticated that is way different than most fragrances out there then this is it.
What Hair Styling Products to Buy at the Sephora VIB Sale
Hair Styling Products for Curly or Wavy Hair
Ouai Curl Jelly ($26) I’ve been trying to wear my naturally curly (and now wavy from years of bleaching and heat damage) hair au naturale lately to limit the heat damage I’m doing to it. I’ve been loving this cream with a bit of hold that adds a little definition, hold, and shine to my curls. It has a lovely scent, but be warned that it’s quite strong.
The Ouai Wave Spray ($26) is quite lovely as well. It gives some definition or bring droopy curls back to life without making them crunchy.
DRYBAR 100 Proof Smoothing Oil ($36) It physically pains me a little when I have to repurchase this because it’s so expensive, but I keep going back because it’s just perfect. I have crispy, bleached, dehydrated ends and oily the second I get out of the shower roots (cute I know) so finding the perfect hair oil is a balancing act. This product has been on my What to Buy at the Sephora VIB list for YEARS for this reason.
I always use it when wearing my hair curly or wavy and put a tiny bit on my ends if I’m wearing my hair straight or curled with a curling iron.
Ok I think that’s enough recommendations for now. If you need more check out my entire tag full of Sephora VIB recommendations of what to buy and what to skip.
