I Bought This | Press SampleAffiliate Links
Sephora Friends & Family Sale 2013

Sephora has provided VIBs & VIB Rouge with a 20% off code of VIBTOPIA which is good from Nov. 7 through Nov. 11, 2013. Many of you have emailed me to ask what you should pick up during the sale. So I’m going to give you a list of the things I love or I’m lusting after. Usually I think this Sephora sale is a great time to stock up on staples and on palettes / sets. All of my recommendations are cruelty free.

I think any of these would be haul worthy during the Sephora VIB sale!

What are you planning on hauling? Are there any cruelty free brands that I didn’t mention that you feel I should look at? Let me know!

  • From our partners
    • Kim Porter

      Love the Kat Von D eyeshadow book. And OCC Lip Tars, my fave! Great list

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Yay glad you love it!

    • http://www.slashedbeauty.com/ Miranda Mendoza

      I’m still a little confused about this sale. Can anyone use the coupon code or only VIBs? and what does it take to become a VIB? (Haven’t shopped at sephora in a LONG while since starting college)

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        You can try the code but I think it only works if you’ve spent enough to be considered a VIB at Sephora. I’m a VIB Rouge, but they did not do anything special for us.

        • http://www.slashedbeauty.com/ Miranda Mendoza

          and VIBs are different than Beauty Insiders?

          • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

            Yes, it goes:
            BI
            VIB
            VIB Rouge

    • http://www.painted-ladies.com/ Sheila Arkee

      I’m stuck between the Nars blush palette and the Too Faced Pretty Rebel – I can only get one and both are gorgeous.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I would have chosen Pretty Rebel

    • FabZilla_Kath

      Sephora website crashed at 12mn. I have no patience, I’ll try checking out again later.

    • Cosmetic Sanctuary

      Sephora’s site is on the fritz. I’ll be passing until it’s good again :( SO many great picks though!

    • http://loveforlacquer.com/ loveforlacquer

      Ahhh so many awesome picks!!!!

    • kSquaredGlamour

      wow now that is a complete list of amazing products! I own several of them but saw several i dont that i would love to pick up!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Which ones did you pick up?

    • erikatheicyone

      That is an amazing list of goodies. I wouldn’t turn down any of those pretties. I’m drooling over that Becca highlighter.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        It’s stunning!

    • marciaf

      A girl could go broke with your suggestions!! Is that Becca brush similar to the Hourglass one for the radiant powders?

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        You know, I’m not sure!

    • BooBooNinja

      LORAC is CF?! Yay! That means my stash is ~75-85% CF now! Where did you find LORAC listed as being cruelty-free?

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        It was on their website, but I realized (belatedly) that they don’t mention their suppliers :( However, Paula’s Choice and NAVS lists them as CF, at least last I checked.

    • Harshleen

      Great list! I need to pick up a few Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        there are so many great shades!

    • Krystle Kouture

      Great picks! I really want to get some of the holiday sets with the discount!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Definitely a great time to pick them up

    • Pauline

      I wish I were a VIB, there’s so many pretty things I want to buy, anyone have a spare friend VIB code?

    • http://theplasticdiaries.com Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries

      Ahhhh that is one hell of a list. I want everything. I want to dive into a pool of it all.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        hehe, that would be fun

    • Jenny Nicole

      I already spent so much but I am so tempted to make another order! I was thinking about that UD brush as well but I really don’t need any more brushes!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        It’s a really great brush
