This week has been stressful for everyone; not pretending it hasn’t.
Some people are stress baking, eating their feelings, stress cleaning, or shopping their feelings away.
Devon and I decided to spend yesterday “off”. Off of work in every way, off from home projects, off from cleaning, off from all of the things that we would normally do during any given day. We basically spent the day on the couch, watching random movies and funny TV and ordering Ihop for breakfast because it’s delicious.
I also spent part of the afternoon “browsing” some online retailers because….well…I’ve been learning to not eat all of my feelings away (thanks Lynette!) and even if I don’t buy anything (which I restrained) just looking around at things usually makes me feel better.
In doing that I came across Sephora’s annual holiday sale. Sephora is not known for sales; I think they have this one and maybe one other one in like the spring and that’s about it. So when they have a sale, it’s pretty much a given that I jump on it and stock up on some of my favorites that never go on sale any other time.
You do have to be a Beauty Insider to take advantage of the coupon code that they have on their site, but it is completely free to sign up if you aren’t and takes all of five minutes.
Sephora has different tiers to their sale and as always the more you spend at Sephora throughout the year, the higher your Beauty Insider status is and the higher your discount amount is during their sales.
Now, I know some people go, “I don’t really shop there so only getting 10% off doesn’t seem worth it”.
I say as always; you do you.
But, if you are looking at products that literally NEVER go on sale; 10% could still be worth it for some. (It’s also a great time to stock up on gift sets and Christmas gifts.)
This year their tiers are:
- ROUGE (Highest Tier) 20% off; able to use discount from 10/30-11/9
- VIB (Middle Tier) 15% off; able to use discount from 11/3-11/9
- INSIDER (Lowest Tier) 10% off, able to use discount from 11/5-11/9
You can always check your Sephora account if you are unsure what tier you are. All tiers use code HOLIAYFUN to get their designated percentage off.
So, the sale has been open to higher tiers for awhile but is open to everyone tomorrow. Since it’s finally open to all Beauty Insiders tomorrow, I wanted to go though and share some of my favorite products that are in the sale and also give some gift set ideas if you are using this sale as a chance grab some holiday gifts!
