If you haven’t heard the news yet…Sephora‘s big VIB/VIB Rouge 20% off coupon will soon be available. I believe the exact dates are 11/6-11/10. I am unsure if they will be having a coupon code for Beauty Insiders…I forget how that went last year. This is the first year that I’m a VIB, so I’m really excited!
Sephora very rarely offers coupon codes, so this is the ideal time to either stock up on your staple makeup products or try out one of the holiday sets that are all over the place this time of year. 🙂
In the spirit of preparing for this sale, I’ve compiled a list of the holiday sets that I would love to try, and you should do. They’re in no particular order — I just thought it would be fun to share the top items on my wishlist with you.
My Wish List from Sephora
Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix
lipsticks I’ve ever tried. I keep it in my purse and I reach for it all the time.
Tarte Bon Voyage Collector’s Set
$59 ($432 value)
“A chic, portable travel bag filled with a collection of limited-edition,
oversized must-have beauty essentials for the eyes, lips, cheeks, and
I have yet to try out Tarte’s eyeshadows. And since I am always drawn to eyeshadow colors that are in the “brown” family….this palette definitely is tugging at my attention! I’ve tested out these shadows in store, and they are soft and pigmented—two things I always like to find in my eyeshadows. And the value of this set makes it totally worth the price! What a huge savings!
Too Faced Too Faced Melted Kisses
$24 ($40 value)
“A set of four deluxe, Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks in lasting, stunning shades. With a precise tip
applicator, and the lasting power of a stain and the saturated color of a
liquid lipstick in one long-wear formula, each shade goes on creamy and
makes the perfect holiday party companion.”
I received one of these Melted Lipsticks to review, but unfortunately it is in a barbie-doll pink that I can never pull off. But I do like the pigmentation and lasting power of the product…which makes me very tempted to grab this set. I know I would wear the nude and dark red, and could probably pull off the other two. (Hmm…decisions, decisions….)
Urban Decay All Nighter Long Last Makeup Setting Spray Duo
$39 ($60 value)
“A limited-edition set with two full-size bottles of Urban Decay’s
legendary All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray that keeps makeup looking
I purchased this setting spray to use for my wedding, and have really enjoyed the product since then. I tend to use it on the days when I know I’m going to be having my makeup on from early in the morning until late at night. It really does help my makeup not start ‘melting off’ halfway through my day. And if you already love this product, now is the perfect time to stock up and save!
Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Skincare
$39 ($68 value)
“A six-piece collection of Josie’s argan skincare beautifiers to hydrate
and nourish skin with powerful antioxidants and essential fatty acids. This complete set includes Argan Cleasing Oil to gently melt
away makeup and skin impurities, Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating
Treatment to plump and preserve skin’s youthful cushion, multitasking
100% Pure Argan Oil to nourish skin, hair, and nails, Argan Infinity
Intensive Creamy Oil to hydrate skin, calm inflammation, tame fly-aways,
condition lips, and illuminate complexion, Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF
47 to smooth, hydrate, and protect, and Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand
Cream to heal and soothe rough, dry hands.”
This set intrigues me because I haven’t tried any products from Josie Maran…but I’m really curious to see if makeup with Argan Oil is as good as it seems to be. And since this set gives you a wide range of her products to try…it might really be worth trying out.
Too Faced I’ll Stop the World & Melt with You
“A limited-edition, full face set that’s ideal for creating natural-looking, soft and sexy looks.
Get a natural-looking, full face with
this set’s neutral eye shadows and flushes of color. This set features
the Too Faced Natural Eye Shadow Quad, a deluxe Shadow Insurance
Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer, a full-size Better Than Sex Mascara, a
Sweethearts Perfect Flush Powder Blush in Peach Beach, and a deluxe
Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Peony.”
At half the price, you could try out 5 different products from Too Faced. That fact really pulls at me. As I said, I liked the Melted lipsticks. And I’ve heard fantastic things about the mascara, eye primer, and blush. And the eyeshadows look really pretty. (There’s just SO MANY good sets out this season!)
Sephora Favorites Superstars
There are many reasons this value set is worth the price. For starters, you get so many full-size products of well-know and well-loved products (Nars, Urband Decay, Smashbox). I like the variety of this set, as well. From hair, to perfume, to skincare, to makeup…there’s a little bit of everything in here. And, hey, this would be a good idea to purchase and then break up between your girlfriends—and it’d save you a ton of money, too, then purchasing them all individually.
There you have it! Those are the gift sets I am eyeing as November 6th gets closer. I have no idea which ones I will actually cave and get….if you’re following me on Instagram, you’ll see a haul when I get my order in. But in the meantime…
Question for My Readers: Share with me which gift sets you’re wanting to snag during the VIB/VIB Rouge sale! I’d love to hear what you’re stocking up on and what you’re going to try out for the first time!
I love this list! I had no idea they did a sale like that every year. And the Urban Decay setting spray would be my top choice on this list since I don't own one but really need to get one. And Urban Decay is one of my fav makeup brands =)
Erika Ashley says
Definitely get the BITE set. I bought it last week and it's awesome. Super pigmented and a great deal – the full-size ones cost $23 each!
Sarah Moore says
My sister always waits for this sale so she can get the best deals! I love that Sephora Superstar set–might have to do a little early Christmas shopping! 🙂
Mandy – This will be the first year I take advantage of the sale, but from what I hear it happened last year as well. The Urban Decay setting spray is pretty sweet!
Erika – Oh, thank you for letting me know it's worth the price. Now I'm REALLY tempted 🙂
Sarah – She is really smart! I wish I'd waited a few months to buy my two foundations I just repurchased. But, as you can see from this post….I managed to find other products to use the coupon on. 😛
I shouldn't have clicked on this link!! REGRETS because now my wishlist just got so much longer! I am trying to not purchase any more, but let us know what you end up getting!!

Stephanie – Haha, I hear you! I really wanting to buy all these items when I was shopping on Sephora. And I was SO disappointed when the TooFaced Melted Kisses set was sold out by the time I went shopping. Ah well…I did snag the Bite set, and a few other things. 🙂
I love all of these things
Trish – I hear you — I wish I could've gotten them all, too 🙂
