Mark your calendars ladies, the annual Sephora VIB/VIB Rouge sale is coming next month!! Sephora is always very elusive with their sale dates and they often do many free sample online promotions leading up to a sale that way you spend money ahead of time. Like clockwork, they always release their VIB sale dates about one week before the actual sale. I practically screamed, “GIVE THAT TO ME!” when my boyfriend said, “Hey babe you have mail from Sephora”.
Sorry for the shitty photos, but I wanted to get this post up ASAP.
As you can see, the VIB Rouge Sale this year is November 3-6, and they are doing a new “Holiday Bonus Event” for Rouge members November 10-15.
This year they’ve changed things up: BOTH VIB Members and Beauty Insiders can shop the sale November 10th-15th. VIB’s will also get 20% off this year (it’s usually only 15% off) and BI’s get 15% off (it’s usually 10%).
VIB Rouge– 20FORROUGE
Beauty Insiders– INSIDER15
For the Rouge First Access weekend, you can bring one friend in store if you present the red card attached in the mail and both get an ‘exclusive tote’ (or just go HAM ordering everything online for your friends- don’t forget to use Ebates!). For the Holiday Bonus Event, they advertise free beauty services by coveted brands, so they likely will have a lot of brand reps in store.
In previous years, Rouge members always get to shop the first weekend of the sale, then VIB’s the following weekend, then BI’s the next, but you could only shop on the weekend assigned to you to get your discount. So even if a Rouge member wanted to buy another few items the following week, unless you sweet talk a store manager you weren’t allowed to get your discount on later dates. I always thought this was stupid because Rouge members spend the most money ($1000 minimum annually), and most women often think of things the should have bought later on.
This sale is the best time to shop for items you may be out of, high ticket items and Christmas gifts! I have curated a VIB Rouge Sale wish list and guide you can read here.
