Sephora VIB Rouge Exclusive Promotions and Offers 2019

Sephora VIB Rouge members spend at least $1000 a year to maintain their status, and what exclusive promotions and promo codes will this reward level give in 2019? Anytime I see a 2019 Sephora VIB Rouge exclusive promotion, I will add it to this article. My goal is to track all promotions, not just the ones that get advertised. By the end of the year, we can look back and see what the top-tier offered us. You can view the 2018 article to see what we received last year and compare it to this year to see the changes. I only list the promotion in the lowest tier that qualifies to prevent redundancy (and see the real difference between the tiers). Promotions Beauty Insider members have access to only get listed in that article, and promotions VIB members have access to only get listed in that article.

2019 Sephora Event Calendar

I have one timeline where I list all major: Promotions, Sales, Deals, GWP, Promo Codes, and Events. Those who want to see an overall idea of what to expect this year should stop by. See where these Sephora VIB Rouge Exclusive offers and promotions line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Sephora retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.

-Points Per Dollar: 1.5

-Seasonal Savings: We did get a bigger discount with the Beauty Insider Appreciation event, but I am unsure it will repeat in 2019. All other discounts were the same as the VIB level.

-Tier Celebration Gift: Choose 1 of 3 options

-Rewards Bazaar: $100 Rouge Reward

Sephora VIB Rouge Exclusive Promotions Not Advertised

We do at times get sample bags with select events. If there are any, I will list them below and mention that they are a VIB Rouge exclusive in the sample bag article and the event article, if I write one.

Point Multipliers have an article of their own. I will mention them below and list that it is a VIB Rouge exclusive in the point multiplier article.

All Sephora VIB Rouge Promotions and Promo Codes

Every VIB Rouge exclusive offer or promotion (whether advertised or not) that I dedicate an article to is in reverse chronological order below.

Sephora 2019 Summer Bonus

08/19/19 -Use code SUMMERSAVE for 20% off. Expires 08/27/19. See its article for more details on the Sale.

Sephora 2019 Spring Bonus

Get 20% off in store on online using code HEYROUGE from April 26th through May 6th. That is a total of 11 days. This is the first time Rouge members have ever received a 20% discount in the Spring. VIB members still get the usual 15% off, so there is a real separation in the tiers for this event. We also get 11 days when we only got 8 last year, so that is another improvement. See the 20% off Sephora Spring 2019 Bonus Sale article for more details.

Sephora VIB Rouge Tier Celebration Gift

The 2019 Sephora VIB Rouge welcome gift does not have tangible offers for the first time since launching the Rouge program., Inc.

What are your thoughts on this Sephora VIB Rouge Exclusive Promotions and Offers? Let me know below. Sephora does not inform any Beauty Insider of all promotions. It does list a great deal of them on its Beauty Offers page, but I list some it does not on my Sephora Deals Page. Between the ones it lists and the ones I list, you can catch most of them. Subscribe to emails to get targeted offers. If you’re spending over $25 online, there is always a promo code that you can apply. Most major events run on a set schedule, which is why I track them.

The Rouge Treatment for Two -A 2018 Sephora VIB Rouge Event December 14th-15th

See all 2019 Sephora Promotions, Sales, GWP, Deals, Promo Codes, and Events.

The latest Rouge Treatment For Two Event got announced today. Rouge members can attend an open-door event next weekend with a guest. This event is taking place at your local Sephora all day on Friday, December 14th and Saturday, December 15th. Members and their guest will receive mini makeovers in the beauty studio. No appointments are available during this event, so makeovers are on a first come, first served basis. From experience, I know you can skip the makeover if it does not interest you or if the wait is too long. There is no mention in the fine print of whether your non-Rouge guest will get the scarf if s/he also spends $75. I’ve been to events where the guest gets the gift and others where the guest does not. In recent years, the guest usually gets it though. While I wish the fine print would have made it clear, staff denied my sister the gift once when the fine print looked like she would get it. Here’s hoping anyone who attends with a Rouge member gets this gift.

Sephora VIB Rouge Only Closed Door Event Holiday 2018 Preview

See recent VIB Rouge Events, and all 2019 Sephora Promotions, Sales, GWP, Deals, Promo Codes, and Events.

The first closed-door, VIB Rouge only event for 2018 took place at Sephora on Saturday, September 15th from 8:30am – 10am PST. This event gave Rouge members first access to the holiday launches. Most years have at least two closed-door events, so it is still possible we will get one with the VIB sale later this fall. This event was not as grand as some past closed-door events for a season preview, but it was still worth my time. Every event is different. Some stores provide the bare minimum while others go all out, so no two experiences will be the same. I recommend reading Inside a Sephora VIB Rouge Event for those who have never attended who are trying to decide if this event is worth their time.

Sephora Open Door VIB Rouge Event and GWP Review For the Spring Bonus Discount

There is no real open door event for VIB Rouge members with the 2019 Spring Bonus Sale, so I am not writing an article this year. Rouge members can still share their 20% discount with a non-Rouge friend on Day One in-store, but no friends asked me. See recent VIB Rouge events and all 2019 Sephora Promotions, Sales, GWP, Deals, Promo Codes, and Events.

This is the first day of the 2018 Spring Bonus Event. It is the only official day where Rouge members can shop in store to get a GWP and share their discount with a Beauty Insider who has not reached the Rouge level yet. I decided to attend the open door event for VIB Rouge clients. My partner in crime today was my sister. She’s accompanied me to events in the past. This is a different experience from a closed-door event. The gist of an open-door event is you shop as you usually would and ask for your GWP and discount when you check out. Yes, you should ask, because some employees do not automatically offer. That was our experience today. We wandered around the store, almost aimlessly. Most of the stuff I want is also available at Ulta, and I can use my 20% off prestige coupon for that.

Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Week Starts Today With A Private VIB Rouge Event For Holiday First Access

See 2018 Sample Bag Offers.

See 2018 Beauty Insider Promotions.

Today is the first day of Beauty Insider Appreciation Week, which 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 where Rouge members got first access to select holiday items and a VIB Appreciation Bag if they spent $35 at the event. Sephora may keep this event in September in the future, because the August events in years past never had advanced access to holiday items. That was an extra touch to the event this year that would disappear if the event returned to August in the future. This was the first private VIB Rouge event since August of 2015 that was actually tied to a major promotion. Although the June 2016 event brought advanced access to fall items, there was no other incentive to shop. There were not even any samples in that free bag.

Sephora VIB Rouge Skip The Line, Nab The New Event Review

See the latest VIB Rouge Event.

A new Sephora VIB Rouge exclusive closed-door event launched earlier today, June 5th, 2016. This private event granted First Access to Fall Launches. Unlike previous closed-door events that offer an actual shopping perk, like a discount or a point multiplier, this event only offered a chance to spend the same amount and get the same perks as everyone a little sooner than others. Like the open-door events for Face Mask Friday, Lip Boldly, and Flash Your Card, there was a gift available with a $25 purchase. It was promising to see closed-door events return, but I think they should return with a real benefit instead of a glorified GWP that we can get online with any order. I’d like to see the event return in August with the Point Multipliers or November with the VIB sale.

Sephora Flash Your Card Event VIB Rouge, Sephora Collection Disney Minnie Beauty Reflection of Minnie Compact Mirror, and Save $10 on Two Gift Cards Worth $50 or More at Smith’s/Kroger

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

This was an open-door Rouge Event. Private, closed-door Rouge Events were canceled after the Points Promotion in August 2015, but they returned in June 2016 to launch new items from the Fall. The last VIB Rouge event took place 09/10/16.

If you’re as disappointed as I am that Sephora canceled the closed-door VIB Rouge events, an employee at my store thinks Sephora is listening to its customers. She said they canceled the events based on feedback and are trying to offer events more often (that ultimately give less per event) for more Rouge clients to partake. Now that some customers are expressing disappointment, they are planning to bring a closed-door event back. Her guess (and she asked me not to quote her) is the event will take place in September. There have never been any closed-door Rouge events in September before, so I’d be curious what promotion the event would be tied to. The points promotion last August included one, but the November VIB sale has not seen an event since 2014.

Sephora VIB Rouge Event Lip Boldly and Color IQ

This was an open-door Rouge Event. Private, closed-door Rouge Events were canceled after the Points Promotion in August 2015, but they returned in June 2016 to launch new items from the Fall. The last VIB Rouge event took place 09/10/16.

Sephora has another VIB Rouge exclusive event. Some have reported that their store opened the event to non-Rouge members, but my store verified membership before I could partake. Like the earlier Face Mask Friday, Lip Boldly is also on Friday (January 29th). Hey, that’s today. I decided to write about the event after attending to see if it is worth your while. No appointments are necessary, so you can just head on over if this appeals to you. Events can vary from store to store, so there is no guarantee yours will be like mine. My store, Sephora Summerlin, usually does the bare minimum when it comes to events, so there is a good chance this event is better at other stores. The Face Mask Friday event launched for the first time a month before the annual November VIB event got canceled, so I hope this event does not mean we are not getting an event to kick off Chic week at the beginning of April (especially since this was not an exclusive event). It did not go over well when Sephora canceled the Fall event, so I look forward to seeing how they handle the spring sale. Continue reading

Sephora Face Mask Friday for Rouge Members

The Free Face Mask Event on 01/26/18 was for all Beauty Insiders.

This was an open-door Sephora VIB Rouge Event. Private, closed-door Rouge Events were canceled after the Points Promotion in August 2015, but they returned in June 2016 to launch new items from the Fall.

The Sephora VIB Rouge program has some great perks. This week I took advantage of two. You may have read about the VIBTOKENS code I used on my recent order, but one that pops up less often is an exclusive Rouge event. While I expect to see an event at the beginning of next month to kick off the 20% discount in the VIB sale, this Face Mask Friday event is a new offering. I like face masks, but I really wanted the free gift Sephora advertised with a $25 purchase, the umbrella. When I arrived at the store, I did not even know what I was going to buy. That umbrella would be mine though!

Inside a Sephora VIB Rouge Event

See the latest VIB Rouge Event.

My favorite point multiplier is always the one good toward any purchase offered every year at the beginning of August. This is the kickoff to Beauty Insider Appreciation Week. The event gives 4x points to Rouge members, 3x points to VIB members, and 2x points to Beauty Insiders. I woke up with a terrible headache the day of the last Beauty Before Brunch event in April, so I missed Sephora’s Rouge Event for Chic Week. My sister and I had a decent time at the event hosted at Town Center last August, but I found the Summerlin November event lackluster. The biggest difference in the two events was we took part in services offered from brand reps who arrived in August, but I opted out in November. She partook in makeup from Smashbox and promptly bought some items. I partook in a mini facial from Ole Henriksen, and they got me as well. Maybe, I would partake again and see if it warmed me to the event.
