Sephora VIB Exclusive Promo Codes and Promotions 2019

Sephora VIB members spend at least $350 a year to maintain their status, and what exclusive promotions and promo codes will this reward level give in 2019? Anytime I see a VIB exclusive promotion in 2019, I will add it to this article. VIB exclusive promotions are available to all VIB and VIB Rouge members. If there is a rare VIB offer Rouge members get excluded from, I will list that below. My goal is to track all promotions available, not just the advertised ones. Offers are only listed in the article where all members at that level can redeem them. This helps us distinguish the offers between the tiers and prevents redundancy. It also means there are offers in the Beauty Insider promotions article not listed here that VIB members can redeem. If you are a Sephora VIB Rouge member reading this article, there are offers in the VIB Rouge article that are only available to Rouge members.

Anytime I see a VIB exclusive promotion in 2018, I will add it to this article. My goal is to keep a listing of all promotions available.

Offers are only listed in the article where all members at that level can redeem them. It means there are offers in the Beauty Insider promotions article not listed here that VIB members can redeem.

VIBBARE -A FREE 3-Piece Gift from bareMinerals When Picked Up By a VIB or Rouge In Store at Sephora or a GWP Online

See 2018 VIB Promotions.

Most Sephora promotions are online only. They are generally available with a $25-$50 purchase (depending on how great the promotion is). That is usually the only way to get pre-packaged samples as well, because you can select three free samples with every online purchase. There are rare times when Sephora has pre-packaged samples in stores and even less often when they have promotions in stores. Store promotions usually have the same rules as online promotion meaning a $35 online purchase would also require a $35 in-store purchase to redeem the promotion. Sephora released a promotion that requires a $35 purchase online, but it does not require a purchase in store. This is not even the first free in-store promotion this year.

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip & Liner Review

See the 2018 Give Me More Lip Review

No one puts favorites sets together like Sephora. They are one of my favorite things to buy, because I love sampling a lot of items that I get an incredible deal on. This is the first year since I started shopping at Sephora that there is no Give Me More Lip Set. The large set lip lovers get this year is Give Me Some Lip & Liner. It has 14 lip products, so it is right on par with past sets (they usually have 15-16). There are four full-size products in the set and as usual the value of the full-size items exceeds the cost of the set. If you’re interested in the full-size items, this set is definitely a deal.

Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Week and the VIB Appreciation Sample Bag

See 2018 Point Multipliers.

See 2018 Beauty Insider Promotions.

See 2018 Sample Bag Offers.

See 2018 VIB Promotions.

Beauty Insider Appreciation Week runs from September 10th through September 17th. During the event, Beauty Insiders get 2x points, VIB members get 3x points, and Rouge members get 4x points. This event usually takes place in August, but Sephora pushed it back this year to iron out the details of the Rewards Bazaar. Hopefully, nice items enter the Rewards Bazaar, so the point multipliers for this event get put to great use. It officially kicked off this morning with a private VIB Rouge Event, which I wrote about separately. Sephora always offers a VIB Appreciation Bag for VIB and Rouge clients during the event. There are two options this year, but they share a one time use code. Members can choose the one they prefer (if they arrive before one runs out of stock). These are the same bags handed out at the VIB Rouge event this morning, so it is possible Rouge members who attended the event can get both bags.

Sephora Sale Section Exploded and new VIB Promo Code, VIBICON

See recent articles on Sephora Sale items.

See 2018 VIB Promotions.

I know today is a big shopping day at Ulta (10x Points Day), but Sephora has offers of its own. The sale section exploded overnight with a lot of gems that will not last long. This is all part of the End of Summer Sale to make room for all the fall offerings. There are new items from Ciate, Julep, tarte, Stila, Korres, Sephora Collection, philosophy, Benefit, Ole Henriksen, Kat Von D, Nudestix, First Aid Beauty, Formula X, Butter London, Supergroup, L’Artisan Parfumeur, Nest, Buxom, Boscia, Josie Maran, Urban Decay and more. New items are releasing every day, so it is a good idea to keep checking.

Sephora Collection Disney Minnie Beauty Minnie’s Aren’t You Gorgeous Handheld Mirror and the Annual 10% VIB Discount

See 2018 VIB Promotions.

The Disney Minnie Collection is on sale. See my Disney items to see why I recommend this collection.

When Sephora released the Disney Minnie Beauty By Sephora Collection, there were three pieces I needed. I love all things beauty and all things Disney, so limiting what I collect is difficult. The first was the Minnie World in Color Eyeshadow Palette, which I picked up during the Sephora Love Note Sale. This is still available and definitely worth it. There was a 250 point tote bag (which may still be available in stores but is out of stock online) that I also think is worth it. My last piece was harder to pick up, but I finally got it on 05/03/16.

Sephora + Hakuho-do Brushes Buy One Get One Free and VIBFACIAL

See 2018 VIB Promotions.

Sephora and hakuho-do collaborated to create a revolutionary line of brushes from the Sephora Pro team and traditional Japanese craftsmen. These stunning red, black, and white brushes caught my eye immediately. I usually avoid white bristled brushes, because they can look dirty even after they’re cleaned. The craftsman at hakuho-do create stunning works of art. All of the brushes from this collection are synthetic, which helps make them a lot cheaper than traditional hakuho-do brushes that use natural hair. The collaboration makes them more expensive than brushes in the Sephora Pro collection.

Sephora VIB Sale 20% Off Holiday Shopping

See recent articles on Sephora Sale items.

The annual VIB sale which runs from the beginning to the middle of each November is in full swing. This is the first year Sephora decided to exclude Rouge clients from the VIB part of the 20% off sale. I was curious to see whether HOLIDAY20 or VIB20 would work for Rouge clients. Sephora said it would not work, but parameters on new codes can fail. A VIB exclusive code had never been released before, so it was worth checking. The VIB sale runs 11/13/15-11/16/15. The code officially went live at 11:41pm PST on 11/12/15, so it came 19 minutes ahead of schedule for the west coast and was behind schedule for some others. When I tried to enter the codes from my Beauty Insider account (created solely for receiving email offers) and my Rouge account, I got a pop up that you must be a VIB member to redeem.

Sephora Party Favors 8 Sample Filled Clutch

It’s that time of year at Sephora again. Time for sample filled bags. There are four bags to choose from containing seven samples in Canada or eight in the US. All Beauty Insiders can redeem a bag of samples. If you’re a VIB or higher, you can redeem two. On my main account (Rouge), I received the code VIBFAVORS to redeem a bag. My secondary account (Beauty Insider) received the code PARTYPICKS to redeem a bag.

Sephora Mother’s Day Gift From My Boys Make Up For Ever Artist Palette- Volume 1 Nudes

My boys wanted to get me a gift for Mother’s Day after we went out to lunch. Xander insisted the gift be from Sephora. Nothing in the store inspired me, so I asked him if I could place an online order when I got home. He wanted to see me walk out of there with something, so I asked if they had the 500 point Marc Jacobs in stock. They did. Then, I saw a Dior bag behind the register and inquired if they were having a Dior GWP.

Sephora Father’s Day Gift With Purchase

Every Father’s Day, Sephora releases a promo code that allows you to pick up free samples for a special Dad in your life. We shop all year for ourselves, so it is nice to forgo our usual promo code to get something for him as well. It is usually 3-4 deluxe items with a $25-$35 purchase. Beauty Insiders get three, and VIB clients get four (reduced to 3 for everyone in 2016). This is a promotion I look forward to every year. Buying girly things usually yields girly samples.

My husband is so particular with samples that he usually refuses to try anything he has not researched forever first. Considering I love trying every sample I possibly can, it is safe to say opposites attract. If the items I get for him are completely free, I do not fret when he rejects them. Buying him beauty products is a complete failure unless he specifically tells me what to get him. I did get him an item from SAKS, and he was mostly happy with it.

Disney Collection Belle and Snow White Mirrors at Sephora

The Reigning Beauties mirror collection by Disney was released at Sephora on 09/15/15. Stock has gone in and out since the release, but Sephora is restocking the mirrors. If you have not procured yours yet, be sure to sign up for in stock emails and add the mirror of your choice to your Sephora loves list. From this list, you can periodically check stock as well. There are times when demand is high and stock is low that items are out of stock again by the time your in-stock email reaches you, so I adopt a multi-step approach to increase my odds of getting these limited edition items everyone else wants.

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares All

When it comes to favorites sets, no one puts them together like Sephora. I have a really hard time passing on favorites that are makeup and skin care related causing me to buy more than I should. The Sephora Favorites Kits have been hit or miss lately. Most products in sets are great even if they are repeats from earlier favorites, but I still cannot wrap my head around the $45 I paid for last year’s Summer Stash for a kit containing nothing but deluxe sizes. It is one I should have passed on.

I purchased Summer Stash on 04/19/14. As recently as June of 2015, they were still trying to move them for $30, which is 33.3% off. That should have told Sephora they priced it too high. As if I did not learn my lesson on the early summer release, I also purchased the Sephora Favorites Summer Crushes kit on 07/12/14 for $45. While the sizes were bigger, it was still a kit of deluxe sizes. To add insult to injury, the price went down online the day after I bought it. While some convinced me that I could get the price matched, I did not even bother trying.

Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2015

2016 Sun Safety Kit

Every year in mid to late May, Sephora releases the Sun Safety Kit. It retails for $32, and $20 of that is donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation. My Dad has skin cancer, so I like the idea of buying something I want while supporting the cause at the same time. My insane stockpile told me I was pretty stocked on sunscreen, so I was ready to pass. I still have a few stragglers from the 2013 kit and half or more from 2014. Luckily, most sunscreens print the expiration date, so I use sunscreen in the order it expires and not when it arrives.

Everyone was waiting impatiently for this release, which was a bit later than 2014. It usually sells out in a few days, but it lasted about a week on and off online. It released and my inner hoarder/deal seeker told me to buy it. And, here we are.

Redeeming the Sephora VIB 10% Discount

See 2018 VIB Promotions.

When it comes to quality products, Hourglass and NARS are highly regarded. They’re both on the higher end of moderately priced brands. I think both fall a little short from being called high end, although some may disagree with me. The quality for the price spent is usually there. It can at times exceed my expectations (hello Incandescent Electra, Dim Light, Kauai, Orgasm) and other times fall short (hello Radiant Light and Narsissist Palette), so I look forward to doing a full review once I’ve played with the palettes a bit.

To avoid disappointment, I generally prefer to swatch things in store before I buy them online. The online promo codes for Sephora are generally better, so I do not buy in store often. For these two palettes, I did not swatch any shades before buying them. This will be my first experience with Hourglass shadows. As I find NARS shadows hit or miss, buying without swatching is a huge step for me. Some of them are so amazing that I feel they could be classified as high end, whereas some almost feel low end. They’re pretty inconsistent. From the swatches I’ve seen of both palettes all over the Internet, I decided to go for it. When I go it, I really go for it, because I do not believe in returning things unless they arrive damaged. I’ve just never done it.
