All of the items I love and plan to restock on during the Sephora holiday bonus sale.
It’s that time of year again. The early version of Christmas for all makeup lovers. The Sephora Beauty insider, VIB & VIB Rouge sale! A fun fact about me: during school I worked at Sephora for 2 years. I gained product knowledge and made great friends, some that I still see everyday!
Sephora offers a sale a few times a year for their Beauty Insider, VIB, and VIB Rouge members. This year they have added a few more to my surprise, and I am not complaining. Usually as a beauty insider you receive 10%, as a VIB you receive 15%, and as VIB Rouge you receive 20% off your total purchase. This year VIB Rouge has early access starting October 26th-29th and again on November 2nd-5th. They have not released the BI and VIB dates as of yet, but I assume they will be November 2nd-5th.
Today I’m sharing some of my favorites I will be restocking and new items I want to try. I hope you enjoy, find a new item you will adore, and of course shop to your hearts desire. If you have any questions please ask. I love discussing all things makeup, skincare, & hair with you.

Purity Face Wash – No sale comes without me purchasing the extra large, limited edition “Purity” face cleanser. I restock each year and use the large size to pump into my smaller bottles. This gentle cleanser that takes away your makeup each evening, does not clog your pores, all while soothing your skin.
Shiseido Facial Cottons – Heaven in a face wipe. These delicate facial cottons are what I imagine clouds to be like. I like to use these to apply my Lotion P50W 1970.
Tan Luxe Water – I love this for a subtle glow. It is easy and quick to apply. It does not give you a crazy tan, even at the darkest shade. I use “Medium/Dark”.
Tan Luxe “The Face” – Same as the water. This will give you a very nice glow. All you do is add a few drops into your moisturizer and apply as normal. Be sure to blend down your neck, around ears, etc. It has not made me break out and gives a natural healthy appearance to my skin. I use shade “Medium/Dark”.
Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation – I shared my new found friend on my newest series “Coffee With Claire |No.1|” this week. A perfect mixture of light, yet buildable coverage. The perfect combo for a natural finish. I am shade: 1N.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder – This setting powder has been a favorite of mine for MONTHS. I am replacing my current one that is almost gone and will continue to rave about the natural sheen it gives. I use shade “2 Medium”.
Nars Liquid Blush – A new item for me. A fellow blogger Erin Sousa (@erincg) raves about this so I decided to give it a try. In shade “Orgasm”.
Nars Powder Blush – My daily favorite. This Nars blush is perfect for my skin tone. I have not found myself switching my blush since I found this one last year. Shade is “Impassioned” (not the shade shown in the image below).
Sephora Collection 12 – Hour Eye Liner – My go to for years if I am wearing minimal makeup. A quick and easy winged liner always does the trick. I wore this everyday while we were in Europe. It lasted through the long hot days, and did not fade or run. I love the shade “07 Glitter Brown”.
Laura Mercier Velour Matte Lipstick – A new for me. It is rare that I pop on an ultra red lip these days, yet I am obsessed with this perfect blue toned red (which always make your teeth look so much whiter). Shade is “Dominate”.
Bobbie Brown Dual End Brow Definer – My angled brow brush recently decided to make a quick trip to heaven (#rip) so I am replacing her with this one. I will let you know how I like it.
Sephora Pro Collection Angle Brush – I need a new angle brush and have always been fond of the Sephora Pro Collection. Brush “#49”.
T3 1.25″ Clip Barrel – When we were in Paris my curling iron had an untimely death. I had to replace her and chose to get the T3 interchangeable base. I have the 1.5″ clip barrel and I am getting the 1.25″ since my hair is shorter at the moment.
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo – The only hair product I will splurge on besides Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray . Being a licensed cosmetologist means I am privy to wholesale discounts. Being that both are not available at any of the wholesalers, I will treat myself to them from time to time. The scents are amazing in both and the volume they give is perfection.
Maison Margiela “Replica” Perfume – I love Replica perfumes. I have another that was given to me by my sweet friend for a wedding present, that I wore on my wedding day. In the scent “Beach Walk”, it made for a perfect scent for our Rosemary Beach wedding. The smell still takes me right back to our favorite place. New Scent “Flower Market”.
YSL – This is the perfume that every time I wear it I get so many compliments. Perfect for the fall, winter, date nights, and really all year long. Scent “Black Opium”.
Giorgio Armani – I found this sometime this year and quickly fell in love. Scent “Stronger With You”.
