Other than Christmas (which in my mind spans from November 24th to January 2nd), the Sephora Beauty Insider Event is one of my favorites of the year. It’s the time that I allow myself to splurge or stock up on my favorite things in the world: beauty products. Yes, I am a bonafide beauty addict (read about the products I keep purchasing here) and I’m not ashamed. This weekend only, Sephora is offering 10% off for all Beauty Insider Members (all you have to do is sign up with your email!) and 15% off for Rouge & VIB Members.
Let’s get one thing straight: The Beauty Insider Program is more than just an email list. It’s free to join, and the more you shop throughout the year, the more rewards and perks you receive. And these perks are G-O-O-D my friends: free samples, free two-day shipping, exclusive discounts, free beauty classes, custom makeovers, and the list goes on.
Above is an example of one of the rewards I selected on my last purchase. I now have travel sizes of my favorite hair products just in time for summer vacation. When cashing in your reward points, there are always tons of options to select, and if there’s nothing you want to try, you can save them for another time.
Log in to your account and check your status. Shop the event from 4/20-4/23 with the following codes:
10 – 15% off everything
If I hadn't just received this as a birthday present, it would be my VIB event splurge. This tool uses LED light therapy to treat and control breakouts. I've seen what it's done for my sister's complexion and let me tell you it makes a HUGE difference. It's also safe to use every day and during pregnancy.
If your foundation isn't making you incredibly happy, it may be time to test another option. I've used Fenty for a couple of months and I L-O-V-E it. There's an array of shades and the coverage is buildable, meaning I can use a little on days when I want light coverage and layer on in the evenings when I'm doing a full beat.
If you aren't using a primer before foundation, stop everything and purchase this product. IT WILL COMPLETELY CHANGE THE WAY YOUR FOUNDATION LOOKS ON YOUR SKIN, Yes, all caps was necessary.
It mattifies even the oiliest of skin and minimizes the appearance of pores, so your foundation applies smooth and lasts longer.
I need to start by telling you this palette actually smells like a bar of chocolate. It's cruel. It's lovely. It's everything.
For a more practical review, I can tell you that it's the perfect tool for someone who loves a neutral eye. The coordinating colors are creamy, gorgeous and some are matte while others have a slight shimmer. You can create a subtle no-makeup makeup look or a smoky sultry eye for date night.
Spray your hair with this magic spray from OUAI before styling it. Not only does it protect from heat, it also memorizes your style (without leaving your hair crunchy) so you can rock your hard work for more than an evening. Also it smells like an expensive French salon.
This was my big investment of 2018. My hairstylist used this on me almost two years ago and I've been wanting it ever since. It took me that long (and hating the way my curls were looking with my current iron) to finally pull the trigger.
I love that it has multiple barrel attachments so you can really accomplish any look. I bought the 1.25", which my hairstylist assured me is the secret to undone waves. The ceramic barrel ensures frizz-free waves and even temperatures. It also has a one hour auto-off and a nine foot cord which can come in incredibly handy.
And let's be honest: the rose gold and white is just gorgeous.
Fancy shampoo is something I justify because I have long hair. But that's really just a lie I tell myself because all women (no matter their hair length) should treat themselves to a quality shampoo. If you're leery about trying (I get it — I was at first too) test the waters with the VIB discount.
I asked for this bougie pillowcase for my 28th birthday and my kind soul of a fiancé did not complain. Did you know a standard cotton pillowcase can cause premature stretching, sleep creases, damaged hair, and bed-head by morning? This gorgeous silk pillowcase solves all of that, and you get to feel like Meghan Markle.
