I’m happiest with arms full of beauty products.
I posted a “question box” on Instagram Stories recently and one of the most common replies when I asked “what kind of content you’d be interested in for the rest of 2020” was “self-care ideas”. While beauty products or routines certainly aren’t everyone’s idea of self-care, it certainly is for me and I’d venture to guess that it is for some of you as well.
Sephora is running their Holiday Savings Event, in which Rouge members (aka yours truly) can get 20% off their purchase online or in-store. It is one of their greatest savings events and my favorite time to stock up on products I love and explore their gift sets!
If you aren’t signed up to be a Beauty Insider, you can do that by clicking here! Signing up is totally free and gets you access to savings events like this one, as well as other perks and promotions throughout the year. There are 3 tiers in their Beauty Insider program: Rouge, VIB, and Insiders, and the more you shop, the more perks you get.
Rouge early access to the Sephora Holiday Savings Event runs from October 30-November 2nd. Then access will open up for VIB members from 11/3-11/9 and Insider Member access for all tiers will run from 11/5-11/9.
Rouge members get 20% off, VIB members get 15% off, and Insiders get 10% off when you use the code HOLIDAYFUN at checkout.
So now that you have all the info you need for the event, let’s dive into some products! I’m focusing heavily on gift sets with holiday gifting in mind, but I’ll also share a list of my most re-purchased products at the end of the post for those who may be shopping for themselves!
List of products above here: Bumble and bumble Sleek Chic Hairdressers Invisible Oil Set, Bumble and bumble High-Volume Hair Thickening Set, NARS Mini Undress Code Afterglow Lip Balm Set, FENTY BEAUTY Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set: Holo’Daze Edition, Grande Cosmetics Goldie Luxe Lash and Brow Serum Set, Sephora Collection Wild Wishes Advent Calendar
I love the idea of the beauty advent calendars especially for someone new to makeup or a teen. It’s a great way to dive into a brand of products and this Wild Wishes Advent Calendar by Sephora is STOCKED full of great products to try out.
I really love the FENTY BEAUTY glosses and this gift set has a perfect mixture of bolder colors with some great soft neutrals as well.
I’m a huge fan and daily user of GrandeLash products and this kit will certainly please anyone who is looking to condition, grow, or just maintain healthy lashes and brows.
I love anything that adds texture or airy volume to my otherwise flat, limp hair. Both of these are great intro products to the Bumble and Bumble line. BB Thickening Dryspun Volume Texture Spray is what I use mid-shaft to ends to add texture to my curls so they don’t nest into one another, and a light mist of the Thickening Spray on damp hair will add lift and volume!
I looooove the NARS Afterglow Lip Balms. This set has a full size of the shade Orgasm, which is my favorite shade, and then smaller sizes of Dolce Vita, Fast Lane, and Laguna. These feel comfortable on the lips, add a slight wash of color, and are great to wear on minimal makeup days!
If you are going to shop for beauty gifts to give others during the Sephora Holiday Savings Event, here are a few tips I want to share with you while you browse.
One. Don’t buy fragrance as a gift unless you are 100% certain the recipient has tried and loves it.
Two. Steer clear of wrinkle-reducing or blemish-clearing products because you don’t want to offend anyone!
Three. Consider gifting a product that you use and love so you can include a personal message like, “I’ve been using this lip gloss for years and I can tell you it feels so hydrating and I think you’ll love it!”
Like I mentioned above, if you haven’t signed up to be a Beauty Insider yet, do it now! And add the days you can take advantage of the event to your calendar w/ your code “HOLIDAYFUN” saved in the event note with a reminder!
