There are so many things to love about being a Sephora VIB Rouge Member, my favorite is the 15% discount I receive twice a year during the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale. I absolutely love makeup, hair products and skincare! I think that has to do with the fact that I have very sensitive skin, thick coarse wavy hair (that seems to have a mind it’s own), and know how tough it can be to find products that actually work. I have finally found products that work for my sensitive, dry, acne-prone skin, and hair products that actually smooth my hair and don’t weigh it down and love spreading the word.
The 2017 Sephora VIB Rouge Sale for spring just kicked off today for the next week. Since this sale is so amazing, and you can save on beauty products, skincare, hair tools, makeup, and more, today, I’m excited to share a few favorites you’ll love and trendy new items you’ll adore! (PS: Be sure to check out my blog post from last spring for more details on these great products). I also shared beauty essentials in my recent Glambox review!
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. I started using this a little over a year ago, and couldn’t be happier. It provides great coverage, and doesn’t break me out which is a huge plus!
I love eyeshadow palettes. I bought the Urban Naked Eyeshadow palette during the last Sephora VIB Rouge Sale and use it all the time. I have blue eyes and it really complements them. My mom’s eyes are hazel, and she loves it too. I was gifted this Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette for Christmas and absolutely love it. I swear it smells like chocolate. I’m really sensitive to scents, but this smells amazing. 🙂
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Eyebrow Pencil. Beauty bloggers everywhere recommend this eyebrow pencil, and it’s easy to see why – it’s absolutely amazing! I have thin, sparse eyebrows and this pencil is the best! I use it and Benefit’s Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel to fill in my brows. I also love these Anastasia Beverly Hills tweezers. They are phenomenal and well worth the price!
Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover. This is my favorite product ever! My eyes are so sensitive, there are many products I can’t use, but thankfully this isn’t one of them. It removes my eye makeup well and is so soothing. I have used this since I was a teenager, and have never found anything better. It’s by far the best!
I love the amazing samples Sephora sends along with items I order, I swear I’ve found amazing products thanks to these samples including my Marc Jacobs eyeliner, and my Guerlain mascara. This Marc Jacobs fineliner eyeliner glides right on and stays put! It’s easy to use and looks phenomenal. This Guerlain Intense Volumizing mascara is amazing. I have strict orders from my mom to buy it for her today, she loves it too. 🙂 I’m always asked if I’m wearing false eyelashes when I use it.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit. I also have the original Anastasia Contour Kit, and I love them both, but this one is absolutely perfect for those of us with dry skin! I’m really happy I bought it. I use it on the daily.
I always wanted to try Bobbi Brown’s shimmer bricks but I was scared to do so since my skin is so sensitive. I bought the holiday version during the last sale in November, and I’m so glad I did (and bummed I waited so long to do so). It is simply amazing! I use it as a bronzer and a highlighter. It’s so pretty! I can’t get over it. I just love it so much!
Lip Injection lip gloss. If you love lip gloss as much as I do and you’re searching for a product that will instantly plump your lips, I highly recommend it. I have used this for years. FYI It does tingle!
I love this Urban Naked lip gloss. It came in one of my kits, and use it all the time! The color I have is no longer available (SESSO) but there are a few other colors that are just as pretty.
My hair essentials:
I love my Drybar Sake Bar shampoo, Drybar Mudslide Nourishing Hair Mask, Velvet Hammer hydrating control cream (for those of us with thick, coarse hair), the Chaser shine cream, and 100 Proof Treatment oil. Those of us with thick hair know that it’s an all day process to wash our hair, dry it, curl it or flat iron it! I highly, highly, highly recommend these products! The shampoo and conditioner (mask) have changed my life. I was going to cut my hair in March because I could no longer take how bad it looked, but stumbled on an Instagram post that inspired me to make a purchase. A beauty expert mentioned how much she loved Drybar products. I tried the product she mentioned and didn’t like it, but decided to try the shampoo and mask before giving up, and can honestly tell you it changed my life. For the first time in my life I love my hair and the condition it’s in.
I curl my hair with the T3 Twirl Trio and also straighten it with this amazing Drybar flat iron that I bought during a sale last fall. They’re both life changing! I plan on doing a review this spring. If you’d like to see pictures of my hair, please feel free to head over to my Shop Instagram page or my Instagram profile as I have more pictures there.
Drybar The Tress Press Digital Styling Iron: My mom is trying to claim ownership on this amazing flat iron, it’s so good! I have bought numerous straightening irons/flat irons over the years, but this one is by far the best. I wish I had a Drybar close by as I know I’d love it. Their products are the best, hands down.
T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand. I am obsessed with this curling wand! I have bought numerous curling irons and curling wands over the years, and this one is my favorite. I mainly use the largest wand to curl my long hair and it’s phenomenal. There are so many tutorials on YouTube for this wand, it’s easy to get hooked on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon trying different looks!
