Sephora Favorites 2018 Superstars Kit Review

This 2018 Sephora Favorites Kit came back in stock temporarily (after I reviewed it), but it returned to its original $80 price tag. I went over the reasons I would not purchase the 2018 Sephora Favorites Superstars Kit at full-price in a grab or pass article. The main reason was the original price of $80 was too high for mostly samples that Sephora has given out many times. Of the $85.50 in full-size products, none of the items really grabbed my attention. I already owned two of them and the other two were things I would not usually purchase, especially at full-price. All of the samples already existed in my collection, and I did not need duplicates of any of them. My decision in that article was I would purchase the kit if it dipped to $40. At that price, I could justify grabbing the two items I did not already own and keeping some duplicates of the products I really love and would actually need. Days after posting that article, Sephora discounted the set to $40 in its Labor Day Sale. To make sure I could not pass this deal up, Sephora allowed me to use my Rouge discount code from the Beauty Insider Appreciation Event for an extra 20% off bringing the final sales price to $32.

Sephora Favorites Superstars Kit 2018 Grab or Pass?

See my Grab or Pass on the Superstars Kit Everyday Must Haves, and all 2019 Sephora Promotions, Sales, GWP, Deals, Promo Codes, and Events. As I mention below, this Sephora Favorites Superstars Kit is worth $40, so I purchased and reviewed it when it dipped down to that price in the Labor Day Sale.

The latest Sephora Favorites Superstars Kit for 2018 is still available. The Beauty Insider Appreciation Event opens to Rouge members today. Rouge members get 20% off one online purchase and an unlimited number of 20% off opportunities in store until the event ends. All beauty insider levels get a discount, but they start on a different date. I’ve gone over the details for that event in another article, so I will not mention this event again here. While looking for ideas on what I should buy, I came across it again. This is something I never considered at full-price, but could I justify it with a 20% discount? As a deal shopper, I typically enjoy the favorites sets Sephora puts out. This one was the first Superstars Kit in years I am not interested in.

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.
