My Sephora Sale Picks & How to Purchase Smart

 
 

Sephora is having their sale right now! I want to share the mindset you should have about this sale (i.e. don’t buy just to buy), what I’m going to buy, and more of my favorite products!!

First what is the Sephora sale?

If you are a beauty insider, you can get 10% off your purchase! It’s free to sign up and doesn’t cost you anything, except your email address. If you already are a beauty insider, and are either Rogue or VIB, you get (respectively) 20% and 15% off!

Why is this sale so hyped?

Because usually beauty products NEVER go on sale. Or at leas the one’s that you want to go one sale never do. At least I think that’s why ever blogger ever talks about this sale.

BUT, if I were you, I wouldn’t go out and spend your life savings on a whole bunch of beauty product just because they are on sale & let me explain why...

You don’t want to buy just because something is on sale. It’s easy to start thinking “oh I need this, it’s $5 cheaper” or “but what if I want this later, I should just get it now, it’s on sale!”. Nope, that is just the marketing tactics working. It’s crazy right? They get you without you even realizing it!! Happens to me all the time and I’m not gonna let it happen this time.

The Sephora sale happens twice a year (so no need to get in a panic) and my purchasing philosophy is that you should get what you need & what you were about to go out and already purchase at full price.

Take for instance what I’m purchasing at the sale today.

First, a new moisturizer from Philosophy. I’ve been needing a new one for awhile but didn’t want to spend an absurd amount. I got this one in the Sephora play box in August & fell in love. AND extra bonus it’s only $25 for 4oz (which usually products come in 1oz containers)

I am also purchasing a new foundation, the Too Faced Born This Way foundation. I have used this so many times, but have never taken the plunge because it’s $40. And that’s a lot for me. But my foundation is about to run out at the same time as the sale is happening, so I’m going to have to buy a new foundation anyway, might as well get it on sale.

But, I’m not going to buy a million other things just because {wish I could thought, believe me}. I hope that it gives you a little guidance on how I navigate the sale!!

Some of my other favorite products I’ll list below if you want to give them a try. These are the makeup/skincare items that I use EVERYDAY of my life. I truly love & believe in them.
