How is September already here!? UGH Summer is leaving and I’m not ready. It feels almost wrong wearing high boots and drinking PSLs already but mother nature does what she wants. On the bright side there have been a ton of sales going on for Back To School, even though I’ve been out of of school for four and a half years… Cue my Sephora Appreciation Sale Haul! The sale exists to promote the recent changes to the Sephora Rewards program.

What did I buy?
Sephora will still be having their November VIB Sale so I made sure not to go too crazy. It was really hard narrowing down what I wanted to pick up, in the end I didn’t walk away with very many new additions to my makeup collection. That’s for the best, Mike & I are saving for a house and just opened up our first RRSPs so our money is locked away for the time being,
I tried a sample of this cream from Ipsy last November and I really liked it. For my skin it’s a good light coverage cream that give a very natural finish. I’m going light on the foundation these days because my skin has been super prone to breakouts so this is a great addition to my shelf. I also just finished two of my three foundations so I don’t feel too bad about buying another.
Regular Price: $49CAD
VIB Sale Price: $41.65CAD
Bite Beauty released a limited edition of coffee scented lip glosses not to long ago. I’m a coffee addict and I just retired a lipgloss and finished another so I wanted something to replace it with. I’ve heard good things about these glosses and the Dirty Chai shade looks so pretty!
Regular Price: $26CAD
VIB Sale Price: 22.10CAD
I’m saving my beauty insider points for full size items now that that is on the table for VIB & Rouge members but I saw that the Algenist Liquid Collegen was available as a points redemption so I had to pick it up. This product isn’t cheap, this tiny bottle is valued at over $10CAD (full size is over $100). I want to see if this can help at all with my forehead lines!
For samples I chose a Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream, Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser and a Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum.
My order was supposed to come with a little Beauty Blender sample because Sephora was giving them out with Foundation purchases but my order didn’t arrive with one. Grrrr!
What did you pick up for the Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Sale?
Overall my Sephora appreciation sale haul was quite small with only two full sized products purchased. I’m fine with that, I have more makeup than I know what to do with right now so I’m only letting myself replace things that I’ve run out of. Let me know what you picked up during the sale!
