What to Buy During the 2017 Sephora VIB Sale

It’s that time of year again… the 2017 Sephora VIB Sale is here and providing you with 20% off your purchase. Figuring out what to buy during this time of year maybe a bit difficult, but no worries, here are five ways to decide exactly what to spend your discount code on.

No clue what the Sephora VIB Sale is? Well, each year usually around the holidays, Sephora offers a 15-20% off discount code to use for your purchases. 20% may not seem like a big deal to some, however if you are a constant shopper at Sephora, then you know they rarely provide any discount codes or reward points that are equivalent to cash like Ulta. The code can be used online and in stores, during a specific time period. The discount percentage depends on your “status” A.K.A how much money you’ve managed to spend in a year.

01. Insider (no purchases)

02. VIB ($350 a year)

03. Rogue ($1000 a year)

Read more details here, or even sign up, if you’re not a member already.

This year, the VIB sale is being ran a bit different. First things first, there should be a coupon that was provided in the mail, if not, that’s okay the codes are below. Once you figure out what status you are (there are three) you can go from there.

01. Rouge: 20% from 11/3  to 11/6 AND 11/10 – 11/15 using code 20FORROUGE

02. VIB: 20% off from 11/10 to 11/15 using code 20FORVIB

03. Insider: 15% off 11/10 – 11/15 using code INSIDER15

Be aware, there is some fine print hidden on the back of the code’s card.  The code is only valid to Sephora U.S and Sephora Canada and can be used at Sephora stores inside of JcPenney as well as online. However, the code can not be used on Colourpop items (sucks, but whatever) and there are limits to the amount of Pat McGrath, Fresh, YSL and Dior items that can be purchased per transaction.

Now that’s out the way, let’s get to shopping!

Pick Up Something New:

Sephora releases new products almost daily, and sometimes it’s hard to determine what to pick up when there aren’t enough reviews to read. Why not take a risk and try a newly released product? If it’s not your cup of tea, that’s fine! Sephora has an amazing return policy (here ya go).

Try a Best Seller:

Some of the best products I’ve ever used where ones that had the highest reviews on the Sephora website (hey there 4 star products). Why not try a best rated product out?

Re-Up on Your Favs:

We all have those products we just can’t.put.down. like nothing replaces them no matter how hard you try. Now is the perfect time to replenish your favorites.

Gift Sets = Perfect Gifts:

The purpose of the VIB sale is said to be to help with holiday shopping (how true that is… I can’t say), but why not get everything out the way early? Christmas is about a month after the sale even though there are already Christmas decorations in stores as if Thanksgiving doesn’t even exist, but that’s another story. Sephora has a ton of gift sets online and in store that are perfect if you just don’t know what to get someone, but have to get them something kinda thing.


Been eyeing something at Sephora that is completely out of your budget? Now might be the time, to spoil yourself. When is the last time you’ve bought yourself something nice that you’ve really been wanting?

I hope you run out and buy yourself at least one thing during the Sephora VIB sale this year, because nothing is better than a discount.
