Sephora VIB Rouge event/ Holiday Soiree

Happy Thursday Lovelies!

I thought I'd share with you a very exciting event which I attended last night. As I have a quite the shopaholic streak, I hit VIB Rouge level at Sephora quite a few weeks ago. Although it probably means I have no control over my plastic card and spend too much time and money in Sephora, I was extremely happy at unlocking this next level and seeing the perks it had in store for me!

And it literally did have perks in store. I was invited to a special VIB Rouge Holiday Soiree evening, because it's the start of holiday sale season. I RSVP straight away, and printed my 20% off coupon. I was also entitled to take a friend and my friend would also receive 20% off too. This discount applies from November 6th-November 10th, so if you missed the event, there's still time to get some bargains! However I have now banned myself from walking near or shopping Sephora online, as over the past month I am surprised I haven't left my blanket and pillow there!

I hit Sephora at 7pm for the start of the event, and a lady with a clip board confirmed us, we then went in for a little explanation of the event and picked up our name badges! Then the shopping commenced! 20% off everything and a store full of treats was never going to end with goods left on the shelves!

Did I really need any more makeup or skincare? NO
Did I buy makeup and skincare? OF COURSE
and also some perfume just to spice things up.

There were lots of staff on hand with special stations designated for doing your eyebrows, lips and general makeup etc. As ever the Sephora staff were extremely helpful. That's what I love about Sephora, they know their stuff and they're passionate about the things you love/will love too.

I browsed the store, topped up my little basket, debated over certain products, walked around and picked up those products which I was debating over.

There was also a treat table, which had drinks, godiva chocolates and cookies! Makeup, cookies and chocolates is there any better combination?

So after all my shopping had finished, I hit the cashier and she totalled me up, and discounted the goods! 20% is just too good a deal to pass up on! I even picked up a Chanel perfume for my mum, because Chanel rarely discounts like this.
What's best is that I still got points, perks and prizes!

The freebie of the night came in the form of a black Sephora bag and a cute little Shashi bracelet. Also as I bought something from Anastasia, she threw in a little treat for good measure. I never usually redeem my points and as they were totalling around the 1500 mark, I decided to pick up a perk. The 500 points gift was mainly Smashbox and I'm really not that much of a fan of Smashbox, so I settled for the 250 point perk and picked up a cute little Tory Burch perfume! The orange packaging fuelled my mini obsession! 

I will be doing more in depth reviews of the things I've recently bought in Sephora but for now this is a little peek at the products I picked up last night!

Hope you enjoyed this little peek, I would love to know what's on your Sephora list or treat list in general? 

If you are after anything from Sephora I would really recommend the Bite Lip Pencil Holiday Tin which I picked up a few weeks ago! It really is such a cute gift, and I can never resist anything mini or anything lipstick!

Have a great day!

  1. I loved the event, I had gone last year when they first introduced VIB Rouge and it seriously is great, make sure you hit up free makeovers too! It was just so busy there, ended up shopping in store & then online when I got home! Congrats & Welcome ;)
