| Lists | Sephora Holiday Gift Card Event Recommendations 

If you haven't already blown enough money at Sephora during the VIB sale and Black Friday deals, here's another opportunity and reason to spend! *insert crying emoji here* Sephora is giving out their annual holiday gift cards to their big (and little) spenders!

Beauty Insiders receive $15 off $50 or more December 1 - 12

VIB's receive $20 off $50 or more   December 1 - 13

VIB Rouge receives $25 off $50 or more November 30 - December 13 


It seems this year they have implemented a new system and made the (previously) gift card, a code. This is perhaps because in previous years people were able to make multiple orders on one account with different gift cards (if you could get another gift card from someone else). So this year, the code will apply the amount off based on your reward status. 

I know it's the end of the year and many of you, like me, are trying to reduce our spending because of the holidays but you can always use this gift card for a treat for someone else, or maybe it will be your "gift from Santa".  Haha! I will try to list different products from my VIB sale list but if you want other recommendations, check out that list here. 

Tom Ford Private Blend Shadows $36.00 USD - Of course if you're going to have to spend at least $50, I think you ought to splurge on some Tom Ford goodies. These single shadows were recently released and let me tell you, the formula is beautiful. They come in 5 different finishes and 30 different shades
Rouge Dior Mini Lipstick Set $50.00 USD - This adorable little set meets you minimum and is so luxurious! Dior has been really killing it with their lip products lately and this looks like the perfect starter kit!
Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette $62.00 USD - With so many posts and pictures of this product it has been on my radar for a while. I love hourglass ambient powders and I can't seem to stop buying highlighters, it may be time to finally get one of these palettes.

Bobbi Brown Highlighting Palette $52.00 USD (was $69.00) - This highlighting palette is on sale, which makes it even more tempting to purchase. I own one shade from a previous release and the formula is beautiful. They provide a really nice glow without an excessive amount of shimmer!

L'Occitane Almond Home & Away $52.00 USD - I have have tried quite a few products from the almond collection and they are all luxurious and nourishing. The warm almond scent is so perfect for the colder weather! This kit contains full and travel sized almond shower oils and moisturizers.

Tartelette Vault $100.00 USD - If you don't already own one of these palettes (and even if you do) this value set of all three Tartelette palettes is drool-worthy! I have the Tartelette in Bloom which I use all the time (I'm wearing it as I write this) and I 'm still considering getting one! Tarte shadows are extremely soft and blendable. All three palettes contains a variety of wearable shades and finishes, you really can't go wrong. You can even gift the other palettes!
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon Gift Set $85.00 USD - To be honest, I was never very crazy about the original scents, despite all the hype around them but after receiving a sample of this one, I fell in love. The warm and complex scent is so perfect for autumn and winter. This set comes with a full-sized fragrance, a travel-sized fragrance, an a full-sized dry shampoo.

Kevyn Aucoin Making Faces Beauty Book $75.00 USD - Everything you need to create Kevyn Aucoin's iconic makeup looks is in this kit! It also contains some of his most popular and famous products, like his contour powders! I think this is a great starter kit into the work of KA makeup!

NARS Audacious Lipstick Keepsake Set $79.00 USD - These famous lipsticks are so well loved for a reason, they are amazing! Creamy, pigmented, and long lasting the luxurious formula is something anyone would love. Plus it comes in a beautiful and chic mirrored box! I'd buy one for me and one for a friend!
Josie Maran Whipped Argan Mask and Body Duo $54.00 USD - I love the Josie Maran Body Butters! They are so luxuriously creamy and hydrating! Plus the natural ingredients scores big points with me! I haven't tried her Mango Mask yet but it sounds good enough to eat! I have yet to be disappointed with any Josie Maran products and for the amount of product being offered, this duo is a steal!

Now that I have thoroughly scoured the Sephora website for all their amazing gift sets, I will have to show insane restraint for buying it all! But if Santa is reading my blog, please put the above products under the tree this year! Pretty please! Haha...
