It comes out of nowhere. No warning, no preparation, no savings plan can handle Sephora’s annual Beauty Insider Holiday Sale, which slashes prices across skin care, makeup, hair products, fragrance, and more. Today marks the first day of Sephora’s yearly winter VIB sale, and this time, the opportunity to nab steep discounts is more than ever.
This year, the beauty behemoth is kicking off the deals with two exclusive shopping weekends for VIB Rouge members (shoppers who spend more than $1,000 in a year). Running from October 26 through October 29, and November 9 through November 12, Sephora’s biggest spenders will get 20 percent off all purchases in stores and online with the code ROUGEBONUS. VIBs (people who spend at least $350 per year), meanwhile, will get their time to shop from November 9 through November 12, using the code VIBBONUS to also score 20 percent off. Beauty Insiders (anyone who signs up for Sephora’s free program) get the last leg of the deals from November 16 through November 19. The code BIBONUS landing them 15 percent off, according to TrendMood.
What makes the holiday sale even greater this time around is that Sephora’s beauty rewards program is the best it’s ever been. For every dollar a VIB spends, they get 1.25 points; for every dollar a VIB Rouge member drops, they get 1.5 points. What’s that sound? Why, it’s the rustle of credit cards across the land. There is certainly a lot to choose from, so to help narrow down the options, we asked Glamour editors to share the one thing on their Sephora wish list this year. Scroll on for our top picks.
