The Sephora sale is a highly anticipated event that offers a fun and economical way to purchase your favorite beauty products. With discounts on top brands and a wide range of products, including makeup, skincare, haircare, and fragrance, it’s an excellent opportunity to try out new products or stock up on your favorites at a fraction of the regular price. Whether you’re a beauty enthusiast or just looking for a good deal, the Sephora sale is the perfect opportunity to indulge in some retail therapy and save money at the same time.
When is the Sephora Sale?
The Sephora Spring Sale usually happens in April and the Fall Sale is usually in October. The dates are typically announced two weeks ahead of the sale.
How Does The Sephora Sale Work?
How much you can save during the Sephora sale is based on your tier in the Sephora Beauty Insider program. Rouge members have first access to the sale and 20% off of their entire purchase, followed by VIB members the next week (with 15% off of their purchase), and then Beauty Insiders get access after that with 10% off.
Your membership tier is determined by how much you spend at Sephora stores and on Sephora.com. The program is free to join and you start at the Insider level. After you spend $350 you reach the VIB level and after spending $1000 you reach Rouge. As long as you spend the required level amount each year (January 1st to December 31st) your status is maintained for the following year.
What Are The Best Sephora Sale Products?
The Sephora Sale is an exciting shopping opportunity not only for beauty lovers of all stripes. This sale offers deals on a wide range of products from skincare products and makeup to facial and premium hair tools, making it an ideal time to stock up on your favorites or find something new to try. In light of such an exciting event, our editors have compiled their favorites.
Clean Bee Gentle Cleanser
I have repurchased this countless times. It is the perfect morning cleanser to wash your nightly treatments off without stripping your skin. Plus it smells faintly of honey so it’s nice to wake up to.
Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash
This is an OG favorite. We have been using this for YEARS. It smells minty fresh and effectively clears everything off of your face giving you a clean slate for your treatments.
RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser
I use this cleanser every night to remove my makeup and to help keep my acne at bay. I love how it lathers and it feels like it is really cleaning my skin without drying it out.
Milky Mushroom Gentle Cleansing Oil Makeup Remover
I decided to step my skincare game up and to me, that means getting a cleanser specifically for removing makeup. I’ll be adding this to my cart because the packaging is pretty and recyclable.
Serums & Essences
They are perfect if you want targeted products to address your skincare concerns. Highly concentrated serums are effective but are also expensive. These are both effective and easy on your budget. Just make sure you know the right serum combinations to use to not irritate your skin.
Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence
I really don’t have a good reason for wanting this other than wanting to do everything I can to age gracefully. This essence provides 24-hour antioxidant protection and reduces the appearance of fine lines. If you’re feeling particularly fancy, try the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. It’s price than this Fresh treatment essence, but you’ve seen the skincare girlies swearing by it.
Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA
The Mister and I have been using this for about a year now and have no complaints. It’s a very basic moisturizer with no frills. That is EXACTLY what your skin might need especially if you are using serums.
The Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating Moisturizer
This cream is very moisturizing and sinks into your skin quickly. It plumps a little bit, but not to the point where you feel puffy. While I would normally recommend the small size to try, it is very, very small. Splurge on the larger size so you have enough to really see if you’re happy with it or not. Plus it comes with an applicator so you don’t have to dig your fingers into it every time you use it.
Tumeric Glow Brightening Moisturizer
This is on our wishlists for the packaging. At least that’s what made us take another look. We are all in on antioxidants and anti-inflammatory products and this one has both of those qualities with its star ingredient, turmeric. We’re grabbing this one to see if it holds up to the hype.
Isle Lip Balm SPF 30 with Sea Moss and Aloe Stem Cells
This is one of the best-smelling lip products I have ever owned. It smells like a vacation. It is thick, but not sticky and provides SPF protection for a body part that we often forget needs SPF too.
The Kissu Lip Mask
I cannot go to sleep without putting this on. I wake up to smooth, plump, moisturized lips every single time.
ROSEBUD PERFUME CO
Rosebud Salve in a Tube
We keep this one in our bags, on the dining room table, coffee table, end tables, cup holders, etc. in case of a moisturization emergency. It’s so inexpensive and effective that it just makes sense to have multiple.
Pore Minimizing Instant Detox Mask
Nothing against the Origins Charcoal Mask, but I want to try this one. I’ve used Origins for probably a decade now and it’s past time to see what else is out there. This one smells like lavender in a good way and helps minimize the appearance of pores.
Wild Huckleberry 8-Acid Polishing Peel Mask
Who wouldn’t want smoother and more youthful skin? While we typically don’t go for physical exfoliants, the acids in this one give you the option of skipping scrubbing while still being effective. You can always scrub at the end if you feel like your face has had a particularly dirty day or feels rough.
PETER THOMAS ROTH
FIRMx® Collagen Face & Eye Hydra-Gel Patches
This eye mask comes in two shapes in one container. The curved shape you’re used to seeing in an eye mask targets your undereye and crow’s feet, while the elongated oval shape takes care of smile lines, lip lines, and between your brows. If you are noticing a loss of elasticity and firmness in those areas you’ll love these.
DR. DENNIS GROSS SKINCARE
Vitamin C Lactic Biocellulose Brightening Treatment Mask
I reach for this when my skin feels lackluster and dull. It feels soothing when you put it on and like you’ve had a spa brightening treatment when it’s done. Buy the single mask for proof of concept, but I know you’ll want the 4-pack.
Eyes & Brows
Underlined Kajal Clean Waterproof Long-Wear Eyeliner
If you thought all eyeliners are created equal allow this one to prove you wrong. This eyeliner goes on smoothly, doesn’t smudge, and lasts all day long. It comes in matte and shimmer finishes to bring any imagined look to life.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
This product has been in my rotation for years and I don’t plan on taking it out any time soon. You can get an ultra-defined brow shape with this product and its applicator or just use it to fill in any sparse spots. It’s highly versatile and comes in so many shades that you’ll absolutely find one that suits you.
Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette
Yes, this may sound like a lot of money to spend on a quad, but it’s Tom Ford. The colors in each quad can make any look from day to night making them perfect for traveling and vacations. Plus they come with a few options for applicators so there is no need to pack a huge palette and a million brushes. Unless you want to. If you’re looking for something just as luxe for slightly less, try these from Guerlain.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
Superfine Micro-Stroking Brow Detail Pen
This product has a bit of a learning curve, but once you’ve mastered it you will look like you sprung for micro blading. The tip is amazing at creating the illusion of eyebrow hair wherever you want to place it. It gives you the most natural-looking and defined brows of any product we have tried so far.
Air Brow Clear + Clean Lifitng Brow Treatment
Want to get asked if you’ve laminated your brows? Get this product. I use this every day, even with no other product to keep my brows looking amazing. I also use it to freeze them in place when it’s time to shape my brows.
Shade Slick Tinted Lip Oil
If the cult favorite Dior Lip Oil is too steep for you this is an excellent alternative. it makes my lips feel smooth, but not sticky or thick. The color has the perfect balance of sheerness and opacity.
Makeout Club Soft Blur Lipstick
This is the lipstick that gets me nonstop compliments, so much so that I’ve bought a second one so I can always have it on me. It feels very moisturizing but the color stays for hours.
PAT MCGRATH LABS
I will forever be the kind of person that will buy something because of its beautiful packaging. This lipstick is beautifully pigmented and comfortable for a matte lipstick. The color stayed all day, even after I ate, and didn’t sink into my liplines.
Lip Color Matte Lipstick
I wear this lipstick when I want to feel like a million bucks. This is something that was initially bought for the packaging but won us over for its endurance. It doesn’t feel very dry on your lips, even after it has been a few hours. and after eating and drinking barely any came off.
Rouge Dior Forever Transfer-Proof Lipstick
This lipstick is legit. Yes. It is pricey, but worth every penny. I have tried so many lipsticks promising transfer-proof benefits but they leave my lips dried or chapped. This product does the opposite. Not only does it stay on for what seems like forever, but also moisturizes your lips.
YVES SAINT LAURENT
The Slim Velvet Radical Matte Lipstick
Lipsticks typically do not stay on me for any length of time, but this one comes closest to having all-day staying power. This wonderful lipstick goes on softly and has a matte finish – very seldom do I have to apply lip balm on top (I do wait a while to let the lipstick set). I am a big fan of slim cases and this one is so cool. I also, really like the almost square shape of the tube as it allows me better control where I am applying product.
Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation
Never have I ever received more compliments on my skin than when I am wearing this foundation. It blurs every trace of uneven skin tone without looking like a mask. The finish is very natural.
HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA
Triclone Skin Tech Medium Coverage Foundation
The texture of this foundation is flawless. It is light, goes on smoothly, and looks so beautiful on your skin. This coverage is amazing, it gives you a rosy glow, and I just feel so pretty in it! This foundation is a keeper. Worth every penny.
The Liquid Silk Canvas: Featherweight Protective Primer
If you have oily/sensitive skin I highly recommend this primer. It’s changed my makeup routine for the good. No breakouts or greasiness. It doesn’t dry my skin out either.
Hydro Grip Hydrating Makeup Primer
This primer is perfect for my normal-dry skin. It’s lightweight and goes on smoothly without a greasy feeling. It makes my skin feels so much smoother and helps my makeup stay longer.
Pore Eclipse Mattifying + Blurring Makeup Primer
I have combination skin and I am so obsessed with this. It keeps me matte for hours and doesn’t feel sticky.
Radiant Creamy Concealer
No matter what I try I cannot get this concealer to crease. The formula is creamy and it doesn’t feel or look cakey at all. No matter what else I try I always come back to this one.
Soft Pinch Liquid Blush
This is an incredible product. A little goes a long way. I am convinced one tube will last for years. It is highly pigmented so it took me a couple of tries to not overdo it. I put a little dab on the back of my hand, blend
with a dense round brush, then dab on my cheeks. It’s very easy to blend and the result is the look of a natural flush, and the color lasts all day.
Airset Radiant Loose Setting Powder
This is the perfect setting powder to enhance your summer tan! And it has the right amount of shimmer in it… once you step out into the sun and let your face bake a little, you will GLOW! The only con is that the packaging makes it difficult to get the product out.
Always an Optimist Soft Radiance Setting Powder
This is my favorite powder at the moment. It is silky smooth, has no flashback, and makes you look airbrushed. I use a powder puff to press this in and it practically erases my pores.
Pink Perfection Petite Tweeze Set
I had these tweezers for YEARS and they are still just as wonderful as day one. Of course, I dull them down with regular use, but Tweezerman offers free sharpening that you can request on their website.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
Brush 12 Precision Brow Brush for Pomades & Gels
This is the best brow brush I’ve ever used. The angle is perfect and it has a perfect balance of softness and firmness to give you the control you need for perfect brows.
I have used multiple makeup brush cleaners and this is the only one that has actually made my brushes look like new and not ruin my beauty blenders. It’s so easy to use and easy to travel with. The light lavender scent is a nice touch.
Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool
I love this product so much! I noticed a huge change in my face structure after using it consistently for three weeks. Additionally, I noticed less puffiness and a glow from the improved blood circulation. It is very easy to use and comes with simple instructions to get the best results.
Vegan False Eyelashes
I love the cat-eye-like style of fringe, and I LOVE the thin band that blends easily with my lash line. It’s a flexible lash that feels light, and also looks great with, or without eyeliner.
This smells like pure masculinity. Like a clean version of a cabin at the base of a pristine mountain. Need I say more?
Fragrance Discovery Set
If you are looking to dive into the world of more mature fragrances this is a great place to start. From woody and spicy to floral and sweet, these scents run the gamut. Plus it comes with a cute case for taking your scent of the day on the go.
Discovery Sampler Set
Calling all girly girls! This fragrance discovery set is for you. Though the sample sizes are very small, it’s just the right amount to get a sense of which scents you’ll like. For the price, it’s a really good deal. You don’t have to spend hundreds just to find out you only like two scents.
Body Wash & Scrubs
FIRST AID BEAUTY
KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA
I noticed a big difference in my inner thigh area where I’d often get ingrown hairs. I haven’t had as many since using this scrub once a week. My skin is way softer and I noticed a reduction in dark spots on my legs too.
Wash – pH-Balanced Body Wash and Bubble Bath
This is one of my best-kept secrets for my lady bits. It works so well as an intimate wash or a bubble bath. The scents are great and will leave you in a good mood. It also lasts a very long time.
Deepwater Hydrating & Soothing Body Crème with Sea Moss & Niacinamide
If you can’t stand sticking your hand in a jar to get the product out you’ll love this moisturizer. It has a very light herbal scent so you won’t have to worry about it overpowering any fragrance you might want to wear.
Butta Drop Whipped Oil Body Cream with Tropical Oils + Butters
Nothing comes close to how hydrating and smoothing this body cream is. It has a faint shimmer so you’ll really get a glisten-y look. I have repurchased this 6 times since discovering it and can’t imagine it not being one of my staple products.
FABLE & MANE
SahaScalp Amla Soothing Serum
My scalp revolts during the winter. Flakes, dry scalp, constant itching, and basically everything you can imagine an irritated and dry scalp might do. I tried this product the past winter and my results after two washes with Amla soothing scalp serum have been nothing short of amazing. After my second wash there was no itching, hardly any dandruff, and my dry scalp was much more tolerable. I highly recommend it!
Honey Infused Scalp Treatment Serum
I have an extremely dry and flaky scalp and this worked wonderfully for me on the first try. I’ve tried scalp oiling and that made it worse, but this stuff transformed my scalp. After one use my scalp was hydrated and didn’t feel tight. Plus, I had hardly any flakes for days. I now use it every time I wash my hair. I highly recommend this product if you’re having any issues with flakiness or dryness.
Japonica Mini Candle Set
This set is a great way to see which of these scents you will like. They won’t scent a bedroom or anything bigger than a bathroom, but they’re mini so they’re not supposed to. The glass votives are beautiful and would make an excellent gift.
REPLICA Jazz Club Scented Candle
I tried Jazz Club during the most recent Sephora sale and I fell in love. It’s the perfect balance between masculine and feminine and makes your house smell EXPENSIVE. I also love how the packaging is elegant and minimalist. I will be trying many more of these. Springtime in a Park and By the Fireplace are on my list!
Vanilla Sky Candle
This is the kind of candle you want to burn as a treat to yourself after a long stressful day. The scent is not super sweet like many other vanilla fragrances. It’s more rounded and the woodsy notes of cedar definitely come through.
What NOT To Buy At The Sephora Sale
We are not here to trash-talk products, but these didn’t perform how we expected them to. Of course, you are free to try them for yourself but these are our words of caution.
Kosas Air Brow
This does NOT apply to the clear color we mentioned earlier. This is for the tinted options. After many attempts, we could not find a shade that complimented our faces and brows. The formula was sticky like it wouldn’t dry no matter how long we wore it and on top of that, the color bled onto our forehead and toward our eyelids. Again, the clear one is phenomenal.
Kosas Brightening Concealer
I really wanted to love this since it was my first foray into concealers with a clean formula, but it didn’t cover anything no matter how I tried to build it up. It also separated very quickly defeating the purpose of the my-skin-but-better look I was going for. Pass.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
This product was getting very close to staple status but my skin has changed. Do not buy this if you have oily skin. You will glow in a bad way and it settled into pores. But if you have normal or dry skin buy this. It doesn’t come in a lot of shades so it may be hard to find a good match.
Skin Fix Resurface+ Glycolic and Lactic Acid Renewing Body Scrub
We debated putting this one in the what to get section, but after some deliberation, we decided to put this body scrub here. It works well, but the application process sucks if you don’t have a very large shower. You have to apply this to dry skin, rub it in circles from the neck down with little particles falling all around you, then rinse it off. This is impractical unless your shower gets hot immediately or if you scrub outside of the shower. While option one is ideal, most of our showers take a few seconds to warm up. Scrubbing outside the shower means you’ll have to clean up the particles later.
