What I Bought | Huge Sephora Sale

It is that time of the year! The Sephora VIB Sale!! To those of you who have read this post, you know that I am currently on a shopping ban until Black Friday. Well, this is my excuse – it’s makeup, not clothes (plus I’m saving money with the discount and I would’ve had to buy these products when I run out of them anyways). Excuses aside, it is a great time to stock up on the products you use year round and to try out some more expensive products that you have been eyeing. Plus, if the high end product you end up trying out does not work out, you can always return it because Sephora has an amazing return policy. This sale happens twice a year, but only this one is 20% off (the other is 15%). Shop away!

Here are the dates and codes:

♡ SEPHORA VIB ROUGE: Nov. 3-6 use code 20FORROUGE

  1. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel – all-time favorite moisturizer for my face
  2. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper – all-time favorite liquid eyeliner

  11. Boscia Charcoal Mask – trying this out to see if it works
  12. Benefit They’re Real Mascara in Black – trying it out to see if it will stay on my lashes
