Sephora Beauty Insider Event 2018: Favorite Products on Sale!

Popular Beauty Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares her favorite items from the Sephora Beauty Insider Event and Sephora Sale 2018

It’s that time of year again! The Sephora Beauty Insider Event is underway with huge sales site wide!

As you all know, I buy a TON of my everyday beauty products from Sephora. I mean, the fact that I’m a “VIB Rouge” with them gives you some indication of how much I “invest” in makeup and beauty products every year (lol). I think it’s a solid investment, even if Kevin doesn’t always agree 😉

The sale is open to VIB Rouges only through today and opens to ALL beauty insiders tomorrow! There is still time to sign up to become a beauty insider! It’s Sephora’s free rewards program, and it’ll let you gain access to the sale starting tomorrow. Through the sale, VIB Rouges can get 20% off SITE WIDE with code “YESROUGE”. Starting tomorrow through 9/3, VIB members get 15% off site wide with code “YESVIB”, and Beauty Insiders get 10% off with code “YESINSIDER”.

This sale is the perfect time to stock up on your everyday necessities or splurge on those big ticket items. Last year, I splurged on my straightener and am so happy I grabbed it! No more damaged ends 🙌And, if you’ve been eyeing up my curling wand or my self-tanner those are both included too! This sale is also a great time to grab gifts for the holidays. Yes, I’m aware it’s still August, but your Nov-Dec frazzled self will thank you! Sephora has a TON of great gift sets that are perfect to give as is OR separate out into individual gifts.

I took an Instagram poll yesterday to see exactly what you all wanted in this post. A product roundup by category (like I did for the sale this Spring) or a round up of ONLY my favorite products I use. A roundup of my favorite products won out by a landslide! Below you’ll find just over 50 products that I use on a weekly basis from Sephora. Keep in mind – this includes everything from skincare to haircare to makeup/makeup brushes! I’ve captioned stand outs that I use everyday or highly recommend grabbing on sale like this lipstick that I wear in almost every photo (shade Caramello) and the only shampoo and conditioner I’ve used for the last 2 years!

Click on each item below to shop the product! And remember, items are selling out so if you want something – GRAB it! They have a very liberal return policy!

What to Get at the Sephora Spring VIB Sale

Beauty Blogger Lauren Meyer shares What to Get at the Sephora Spring VIB Sale!

It’s here, it’s here!! The Sephora Spring VIB sale starts TODAY for all VIB Rouges! The sale opens up to all beauty insiders next weekend!

Twice a year, Sephora has a site-wide sale of 10-15% off EVERYTHING. Yes, everything! This only happens twice a year so you don’t want to miss it! I do most of my shopping for the year during these two sales and stock up on everything I need. There’s still time to become a beauty insider. It’s Sephora’s free point program, and you sign up with your email here. You’ll then have access to the sale that opens next weekend!

As you may have guessed, I’m a VIB Rouge (don’t ask how much I spend in a year to get to this level, lol). So, I spent all last night picking my top selections for every category. This way, you’ll have a guide to everything you need for the sale whether you’re shopping it now or next weekend!

I’ve separated everything into categories and selected items that I use on a daily basis and/or are most loved by my readers! For every category, I’m detailing my top 1-2 picks. This was hard to narrow down because I love everything, but I wanted to be sure to keep it easy to navigate for you guys!

Important Dates to Remember:

SEPHORA VIB Rouge ONLY Sale: 4/13/18-4/16/18

SEPHORA VIB SALE for All Levels: 4/20/18-4/23/18

1 (shampoo, conditioner) | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11


Estee Lauder Double Wear: There’s a reason why this foundation has 4.5 stars with 3K reviews and 220K “favorites” on Sephora’s website. It is, hands down, the best foundation I’ve ever used. And that’s saying a lot because I’ve tried the gamut. This foundation lasts me the full 6 months in between sales because you only need a little bit to achieve a full coverage look. This will hide any blemishes or redness you have and give you that flawless appearance! Plus, it lasts 18+ hours, doesn’t clog pores, is oil free and does not oxidize. This means you won’t look orange after wearing it all day. Need I say more? If you get one face product, this foundation should be it! (side note – if you’re looking for a lighter weight version, this one is my go to for days when I just want a little bit of coverage!)

Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer: Believe it or not, a lot of people have multiple concealers. They use one for under-eye and one for blemishes. This concealer can do both for you. It’s extremely creamy so your under-eye won’t look cakey and your blemishes won’t appear dry no matter how much you put on. I fell in love with this one after getting it last Fall and still have some left! Safe to say, this lasts the full 6 months as well!


Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette: The Modern Renaissance Palette is by far my most used palettes! I’ve had it since Fall 2016 and have only hit pan on one color! It has such a wide array of colors that it’s perfect for anytime of the year! I also love that it has a good mix of shimmer and matte shades so you can do a ton of different looks with it. If you’re looking for a palette that has more brown or warmer tones, this palette from Urban Decay is the one for you (and my 2nd most used palette!). And, if you’re looking to save some money, this is a perfect, budget-friendly option that has good everyday basics!


Sephora Liquid Lipstick: Sephora Collection’s liquid lipstick quality and price cannot be beat. I have a few different shades (05, 06 and 13 are my favorites!), and I’ve worn them for pretty much every occasion and can attest to their longevity! They are only $14, which is a steal when you consider the price of most high-end liquid lipsticks! With both matte and shimmer shades, you’re sure to find something you love!


Sephora Pro Smudge Brush #11: I actually picked up this brush on accident. I thought it was a bit bigger when I ordered it and first intended to use it for eyeshadow (clearly didn’t read the description, oops!). But, that being said, this is actually the most used eye shadow brush in my collection. I use it every time I put on makeup! I smoke out my upper liner with it and apply darker shadow to my under eye to achieve a smoked out liner look there as well. A must have in my opinion!

Sephora Pro Airbrush Concealer #57: If you don’t believe that investing in quality brushes is worth it, think again. I thought the same thing until I picked up this concealer brush (I now have 2 of them!). This is the best brush I have ever used to hide blemishes. And, it consistently receives Allure’s Best of Beauty, so you know it’s good!


Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment: No less than a miracle in a bottle. I swear! As someone who suffers from adult cystic acne, this product is a LIFE SAVER!! The all caps is totally necessary – lol! But really, this is the only spot treatment product I’ve tried that instantly eradicates acne (see what I did there?). You dip a q-tip through the clear liquid at the top and into the pink sulfur product that settles at the bottom. Then you dab it on your spot and let it dry. I typically do this overnight. It easily cuts down on the life of my blemish by 3-4 days. I’ve even put it all over my nose to shrink my pores! Careful though, it can be very drying so make sure you’re using a good moisturizer (like this one)!


Alterna Shampoo & Conditioner: Like I said in this post, I’m absolutely in love with Alterna’s products. During this sale, I typically buy this shampoo and this condition in their largest containers, and they last me the next 6 months (and I have a LOT of hair). I credit this line for bringing life back to my hair after coloring it a ton in college and for making it feel thicker!

Living Proof Dry Shampoo: One of the questions I get asked most frequently about my hair care routine is which dry shampoo I use. Because we all know I hate washing my hair, so I had to get the best dry shampoo to do the job! I also reviewed this dry shampoo in my haircare post, so you can read more about it here. If you’ve been waiting to grab this, now is the time!

What products are you most excited to try? Happy Friday everyone!



Sephora Fall VIB Sale Picks

Sephora Fall VIB Sale, Sephora, Sephora Beauty, Sephora Haircare, Sephora Skincare, Urban Decay, Becca, Origins, Amika, Living Proof, Eyeshadow, Dry Shampoo, Volumizer, Cleanser, Highlight, Makeup brushes, sale products, Sephora Sale


Sale Dates: 11/10-11/15


VIB: 20% off 20FORVIB

Beauty Insiders: 15% off INSIDER15

I know everyone always says October is their favorite month (leaves changing, pumpkin everything etc), but mine has always been November. November always signals the start of the holidays for me, which begins with my birthday mid-month, Thanksgiving shortly after followed by LOTS of shopping then Christmas and New Years! It really is the best time of year.

November also marks the Sephora Fall VIB Sale for Beauty Insiders. The Sephora Beauty Insider program is a rewards program that’s free to join and allows you to gain a point for every dollar spent at Sephora. It also gains you access to weekly deals, and their twice yearly sales site wide. There are different tiers to the program – Beauty Insider, VIB and VIB Rouge. Your tier depends on the amount spent in a calendar year. If you guessed that I’m a VIB Rouge you guessed right. Please don’t look up how much that means I spend there in a year and PLEASE do not tell Kevin! LOL. To be fair, I buy everything from Sephora. From makeup, to skincare, to haircare almost my entire bathroom is from Sephora.

During their twice yearly sales, I stock up BIG time. I mean, it would be silly not to with how good the sales are (talking 10-20% sitewide depending on your tier). The exact dates for the November sale are still up in the air, but it typically starts the first or second weekend with the VIB Rouge, then moves down the tiers until the end of the month. If you’re wondering what to buy, I’ve sorted out my top pics for different categories below! My post from Tuesday on holiday lipsticks also has a ton of products that will be on sale as well! Happy shopping (and saving!)



‘Tis the season right?! One of the best things about Sephora is that year-round they have a “gift” section separated into different price categories. These are some of my top picks (most below $60). A lot of these would be great as a whole gift or even separated out into stocking stuffers/smaller gifts for different people. Endless Options! My top 3 picks in this section are below!

  1. Fresh Sugar Lip Beauty Box: You get 6 of these tinted lip balms at $45, which is a crazy good deal considering they normally retail for $24 individually (and this is without an extra % off!). This is a great present to get and then divvy up into stocking stuffers or individual gifts!
  2. Beauty Blender Gold Mine: This is very similar to a gift set I got for my sister last year. Again, another instance of saving crazy money considering one beauty blender alone retails for $20 and this set of 2 + a cleanser and blotting papers comes in at $40. It’s the perfect gift to introduce someone to beauty blenders. Wondering what these are? Read more about how you use them in my post here.
  3. Too Faced Best Year Ever Collection: This collection of 3 mini eyeshadow palettes is great to separate out into individual gifts at a very affordable price. It also comes with a variety of shades so is likely to have something everyone likes.



These are my must-have sale picks for makeup at Sephora. A lot of these are staples in my beauty regime, and some are palettes I’ve been dying to try! Again, my top 3 picks are below!

  1. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette: I received this palette as a gift from a friend a few months ago and use it almost every time I wear makeup. I barely touch my other palettes because I’m so obsessed with this one. It has all warm-toned colors with enough for both summer and winter looks, which makes it great to use all year-round. It’s also highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. With the sale, this palette will be below $50, which is a seriously good deal!
  2. Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick: This is a recent purchase for me that I’ve been using the last few weeks. In my foundation post, I talked about using the regular Double Wear Stay In Place foundation, which is also an amazing product. However, sometimes with the Stay In Place foundation I would find my skin looking really dry when in fact I have normal – oily skin most of the time. Lately, I’ve been feeling like I need something lighter and not so full coverage. So enters the Nude Cushion Stick. The Stick has the same shades as the Stay In Place original with the same staying power (in my opinion) just without the heaviness. I’m obsessed with the glow this foundation gives me and how buildable it is! 😍
  3. Ready to Roll Brush Set: This set is perfect for the beginner make-up enthusiast or for someone looking to re-vamp their brush collection. For 10 brushes, this is already a good deal, but with the sale it’ll be even better!

Sephora carries some of the best skincare products out there. In my opinion, their skincare products already come at pretty affordable prices, but I always like to stock up during the sale. Make sure to check out my 3 essentials and snag yours at the lower price!

  1. Origins Checks and Balances Face Wash: This is hands down one of my favorite skin products of all time. A Sephora sales rep introduced me to it last year, and I use it almost daily. It’s perfect for normal or combination skin as it will literally balance out your oily/dry areas (hence the name Checks and Balances). It has a foamy texture when wet and works well with a brush like a Clarisonic if you have one.
  2. Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment: This acne treatment works wonders on blemishes. It almost always eliminates blemishes within a day or two. However, it is very drying, so make sure to use a good moisturizer before applying it and use it once a day! Also, mine typically lasts 6 months with sometimes daily use so you get a lot for what you pay for!
  3. Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Cream: A gift from the anti-aging gods! I bought this eye cream last Spring during the VIB sale and have used about half of it. A little goes a long way and it’s one of the most effective products out there. Definitely worth the money!

Haircare products are some of my most purchased items from Sephora, which might surprise you. But, they have SO many quality brands at good prices. I’ll be highlighting my favorite go-to products that I’m planning to stock up on during the sale. You’ll notice most are from 3 brands – Alterna (personal fave!), Living Proof, and Amika. And, I’ve actually included 4 must-have products below because I’m really that much of a hair-lover 😜

  1. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo: Hands-down the BEST dry shampoo out there. And trust me, for a girl who washes her hair only twice a week, I’ve tried the gamut of products. This dry shampoo is a step above the rest because it actually cleans your hair when you spray it on your roots. What?! I know! After a sweaty workout, this product eliminates oil and grease to allow you to style your hair any way you want. I’ve actually been running super low on this dry shampoo for a few weeks and have been using my travel size to get me through to the sale LOL #hardlife. If there’s one thing you pick up from this post, let this be it!
  2. Amika Bombshell Blow Out Spray: This spray is perfect for us fine-haired ladies. It’s a spray so it won’t weigh your hair down like a mousse would. Also, it works when you both blow dry and air dry your hair. I use mine every time I wash my hair!
  3. Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo + Conditioner: Alterna products are a step above the rest. I discovered this brand largely on accident after using my Beauty Insider points to purchase a few samples of their shampoo. After I used the samples, I was hooked, and this is now my go-to shampoo/conditioner. I even got my sister hooked. We’re also convinced this makes your hair thicker over time. This stuff is MAGIC you guys! Cannot rave about it enough 💕
  4. Alterna Caviar CC Cream 10-in-1 Complete Correction: This is another product I use every time I wash my hair. You only need a little so you can make even a sample size last months. Just as the name says, it protects your hair in 10 different ways from anti-breakage, heat protection, UV protection, smoothing, etc. yet is still light enough for fine hair. This was a game-changer in my hair routine, and I think is another reason why my hair feels thicker and healthier than it has before!

Whew! Didn’t realize this post would be so long! But there are just SO many good products I didn’t want to miss one! Make sure to stay tuned for the Sephora Fall VIB Sale, and I’ll be sure to update this post once they release the official dates. 🤗

Kev and I had a great time at the Minnesota Wild Hockey game on Tuesday! Unfortunately, they lost, but it was still a really fun experience. Tonight, we’re going over to my sisters to have dinner since my Dad is in town for a workshop. My Dad is a donut aficionado so tomorrow I’m taking him to Bogart’s for a morning treat before he leaves for home. I’m excited to see his face once he sees all their flavors!
