Today marks the first day of Sephora’s VIB sale, where they are offering 20% off with code VIBTOPIA (Five days only! Today through November 11th.).  This sale only happens once a year, so take advantage, my friends!  Gotta say, this is one sale that always leaves me giddy.  I thought I’d share the items in my cart, plus a few other things that have caught my eye!

The Guy Bourdin for Nars palette is such a steal.  If you don’t own any Nars blushes, or are looking to stock up on more, this is a great time to do it.  They are awesome.  Each one of these blushes is only the slightest bit smaller than if you were to buy them individually.  The kicker is that this palette is $65 for SIX blushes.  They are normally $29 EACH!

Speaking of a lot of bang for your buck, the Sephora Favorites Super Stars kit features 12 of Sephora’s best selling items… and many of them are full size!  This is a $280 value for only $75.

To some, this might seem completely like a waste of money.  However, when I heard Isabelle Bellis advise that you should spray your face with a mineral water after washing your face, I started doing just that.  The Evian Mineral Spray seems to be the best reviewed for the best price.  Also, it’s so refreshing to use as a mid-day pick me up!

Dior makes some of the prettiest eye shadows -so silky and pigmented.  This palette would be gorgeous on anyone, but especially someone with hazel or brown eyes.

Brandon almost wrecked the car when I told him my favorite lip balm was $22.  Guys just don’t understand these things.  Truthfully, I didn’t either until I owned this Sugar Lip Treatment.  I limit myself to using it just at night, but it really has put my lips in such better condition that I really only need to use it then (coming from someone who used to apply chapstick every couple of hours!).  This stuff is packed with vitamins and SPF, so it’s sure to make your lips smooth and hydrated, while keeping them protected from wrinkle causing radicals.

If you don’t own a Clarisonic, please do your skin a favor and get one while you can save $25+ on it.  I used to use mine morning and night, but found that my skin likes it best when I only use it two or three times a week.  Plus, it allows the brush heads to last WAY longer.  Every person’s skin is different in terms of how often you can tolerate it, but I do feel 100% confident that every person’s skin would benefit from this in some way.  It cleans your face SIX times better than washing your hands traditionally.  Plus, it helps to smooth your skin & blur imperfections.  It definitely proves they are good when every aesthetician I’ve ever been to has used this during my facial.  I wouldn’t fuss with the special edition ones or the $200+ Clarisonics.  I own the least expensive one, the Mia, and it is awesome.

    I love mineral water sprays! I use the Avene one and I love it. Also great on sunburns.
    And I recently purchased a Clarisonic and I'm addicted!
    This sale is so exciting!
