What’s in My Sephora VIB Beauty Insider Shopping Bag?

Oh give me everything!  The Sephora VIB Beauty Insider 20% off Event is happening right now!  Yes, that means you get 20% off your entire order!  If you aren’t a VIB yet, you have to sign up!  I literally wait for this time each year because you can get items that NEVER go on sale.  Makeup hardly goes on sale anyway,  (Wait.. does it ever go on sale?!)


Bare Minerals // Armani Foundation // Armani CC Cream // Tarte Concealer // Too Faced Naturals // Contour Brush // Sephora Waterproof Eyeliner

This is the perfect time to stock up on some of your staple items and start shopping for some holiday gifts.  (For yourself or other beauty gurus in your family).  Scroll all the way down for my first Holiday Gift Guide of the season!! Sephora has some of the cutest gift sets available at special pricing, so be sure to check those out!  I also love to step out of the box during the Beauty Insider Event and try some new items- it makes it a little less risky!  You can also grab that higher priced item you have been wanting all year long like the T3 Whirl Trio.

Okay enough about WHY the Beauty Insider Event is the best ever, let’s get down to what’s in my shopping bag!

Shop the Beauty Insider Event!


(Trying) IT Cosmetics CC Cream – My friend, Brianne just suggested this to me the other day!  I’ve been looking for a CC cream and she loves it!  I tried IT Cosmetics when it first came out and I couldn’t find a color that worked for me.  Now it seems like there are many more options to choose from!  I’ll keep you posted on this one!

(Oldie, but Goodie) Too Faced Natural Palette– This is a staple classic in my makeup drawer.  I use this mostly everyday as my base colors and then I jazz it up with pops of gold, or a combination of grey and black.  I’ve even used burgundy with it, too!  It’s also perfect to use it as a natural eye (haha, you know what it’s made for!)  It’s very pigmented so it’s one that I don’t have to reapply throughout the day!

(Staple) Dr. Roebucks Anti-Aging Face Moisturizer- My friend, Meryl, suggested this moisturizer last winter and I’ve been hooked ever since!  It doesn’t have a lot of “junk” ingredients and is perfect for those of you who have sensitive skin.  It helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but I use it because of how much it helps with my dry skin in the winter!  I noticed a difference within two days of using it!

  • (Trying) Fresh Vitamin C Revitalizing Mask – Jenna from the blog Balance and Chaos recommended this face mask!  (You’ll love her blog- she is amaze!) I’ve used it once and so far I love it, but I’m still in the testing stage of this product.  It’s packed full of vitamin goodness to give your skin a more vibrant glow and refreshed look! I did like the improvements I saw after the first use!

Amika Dry Shampoo– Best. Dry. Shampoo ever!  It doesn’t leave your hair feeling yucky like you have product in it and it actually works.  It also smells really good, too!

(Staple) Sephora Waterproof Eyeliner– This is my favorite eyeliner ever! I stock up on the matte black/brown because it sells out so often.  It’s the perfect in between brown and black for me.  Black is too harsh and brown is just not what I’m looking for.  The waterproof factor is key because you’ll never find my eyeliner smudging under my eyes and it lasts all day!

(New Favorite)- Caviar Repair Duo– This shampoo and conditioner have been LIFE changing for my hair.  I’ve really been battling damaged dry hair for the last year and I have noticed a MAJOR difference in the feel of my hair.  It actually feels healthy and my ends are holding up really well in between cuts!  It’s worth every penny!

T3 Whirl Trio– I had been eyeing this wand set for a while and I finally took the plunge over the summer during a 20% off sale!  I would definitely take the splurge on higher priced items now because you can get them at a discount.  It’s so rare that these things ever go on sale!  

Urban Decay Heat– I love, love the Urban Decay palettes.  I couldn’t resist this one because the colors are so perfect for Fall!
