It’s this time of the year again! Sephora Spring Sale has officially started for Rouge members and continues through April 11th for members of different Beauty Insider tiers. Sephora VIB sale starts on April 5th, and Sephora Insiders can access the sale on the 7th. Not sure which products to buy during the annual Sephora sale? This post provides the best product recommendations during the Spring Savings event.
What is Sephora Spring Sale?
If you are a newbie or need a quick refresher, here is a full breakdown of how the Sephora Sale Event works. There are different tiers of Sephora membership, depending on how much money you spend in a calendar year.
You are eligible for a certain discount percentage during the Sephora Spring Sale depending on this status. These discounts are available with the code SAVESPRING (the same promo code for all membership levels).
- Rouge: This level offers the highest discount. To achieve this status, you have to spend $1,000 or more at Sephora during the calendar year. During the Sephora sale, this membership tier offers you the biggest 20% off discount on the entire purchase from April 1 to April 11, 2022.
- VIB: If you spent at Sephora over $350 in a calendar level, you are the VIB. This tier of membership offers you a 15% off discount on all items during the Sephora VIB sale, available from April 5 to April 11, 2022.
- Insider: Anyone who’s signed up for the Sephora loyalty program is an Insider. With that status, you receive a 10% discount on all items during the sale event. The offer is available from April 7 to April 11, 2022.
There are additional perks for shopping at Sephora during the Spring Savings Event:
- Free shipping on all orders with the code FREESHIP.
- Sephora Collection products are 30% off during the Sephora Spring Sale for all members regardless of status. The discount is available until April 11th; no code is needed.
- Combine discounts and get free samples with your Sephora VIB sale order! Check out this Sephora beauty offers page for the list of additional discounts that you can use during the sale event.
Sephora Sale Event: Makeup Staples
When it comes to makeup, the Sephora sale is a good time to restock the items that you use on a regular. Think beauty sponges, mascaras, lip balms, and foundations. Instead of repurchasing them throughout the year when there is no discount, stock up during the Sephora VIB sale event and open new products as you need them.
These are some of the items I’d be restocking during the Sephora Spring Sale:
YSL Lash Clash Extreme Volume Mascara
It’s a bold statement, but this YSL mascara is the best thing that happened to me makeup-wise this year. The wand is perfect and the volume this mascara provides is impressive.
Rouge: $23, VIB: $24.5, Insider: $26
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter
I’m loyal to my everyday skin perfector that illuminates the skin and makes it glow from within. If you love a dewy no-makeup makeup look, this primer is a must-try.
Rouge: $35, VIB: $37, Insider: $39.50
Patrick Ta Major Brow Lamination Gel
If you are into the new brow lamination trend, nothing holds your brows stronger than this gel. I went through two tubes of it, and I’m restocking again.
Rouge: $20, VIB: $22, Insider: $23.50
Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Setting Powder
This compact powder is ideal for people with combination skin types. If used as a setting powder, it doesn’t dry out the dry patches, while keeping the oily T-zone matte.
Rouge: $36, VIB: $38, Insider: $40
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
No matter how many concealers I test at the moment, I always get back to this one. It’s creamy, non-drying, durable – just a perfect under-the-eyes concealer.
Rouge: $24.5, VIB: $26, Insider: $28
New Launches to Explore During the Sephora Sale
Another fun way to approach the Sephora sale is as an exploration journey for all the new makeup products that you wanted but didn’t have a chance to try. Below, are some of the new makeup launches that caught my attention.
Rare Beauty Positive Light Tinted Moisturizer
After a recent post on best tinted moisturizers, I’m excited to try out some of the newest launches. This one by Rare Beauty sounds like a good one to try.
Rouge: $23, VIB: $24.50, Insider: $26
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Blush
The new tinted moisturizer blush concept sounds so appealing to me. If this blush is as good as my favorite tinted complexion product by the brand, I’d be thrilled to use it on a regular.
Rouge: $22, VIB: $24, Insider: $25
Pat McGrath Labs Bridgerton SatinAllure Lipstick
Typically, I love the texture of Pat McGrath’s lipsticks. But this purchase is all about the packaging design: it’s so cute that I must have it in my collection.
Rouge: $25.50, VIB: $27, Insider: $29
Westman Atelier Bonne Brow Defining Pencil
This brow pencil gets so many positive reviews that I can’t skip trying it. Most importantly, it seems like a perfect two-in-one travel-friendly product.
Rouge: $30, VIB: $32, Insider: $34
NARS Orgasm Lip Mask
Until this day, Orgasm by Nars is my favorite blush shade. It would be interesting to see what a lip mask in this hue will work and look like.
Rouge: $22, VIB: $24, Insider: $25
Add to Cart: Sephora Skin Care Products
Sephora’s skincare department offerings are truly impressive. Whether you are looking to update your skincare routine, find the products that work for your sensitive skin, or restock on some of the higher price tag items, the Sephora sale is the best time to do it all.
Personally, I’ll be using this sale to get my hands on the new luxury skincare brands that I didn’t have a chance to try yet. Also, I’m looking for new face mask launches as I want to spend more time on self-care these days.
Skinfix Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Face Cream
If you overdo it with acids in skin care, your skin barrier might get damaged. This sensitive skin-friendly gel cream is a perfect solution for those trying to repair their skin barrier.
Rouge: $38.50, VIB: $39, Insider: $41
Tatcha The Silk Sunscreen SPF 50
I’ve heard so many people calling this sunscreen the best one they’ve ever tried. I’m willing to check it myself. It’s about time to introduce hyaluronic acid and niacinamide into sun-care products.
Rouge: $48, VIB: $51, Insider: $54
Fresh Floral Recovery Calming Mask
This skin-calming overnight mask is designed to help with skin redness and signs of sensitivity. This new launch gets tons of positive reviews that inspire me to add it to the cart during the Sephora sale.
Rouge: $54, VIB: $58, Insider: $61
Ren Evercalm Redness Relief Serum
This clean beauty serum is designed for sensitive skin and helps to eliminate redness. I used an entire bottle of this serum and it truly soothed sensitized areas of my skin.
Rouge: $48, VIB: $51, Insider: $54
Dior Capture Totale Eye Serum
After testing Dior eye patches, I realized that it was more about the eye cream than the patches. It happened to be one of the best eye creams out there definitely worth a repurchase.
Rouge: $60, VIB: $64, Insider: $67
Hair Care and Bath Products to Shop at Sephora Sale
If a new hair styling tool is on your wishlist, the Sephora Spring Sale is a perfect opportunity to score a good deal. Whether you need a new curling iron or a hair dryer, it makes so much sense to buy these during the sale. Also, since you know that you’d need to repurchase things like your favorite shampoo or a body wash, consider getting at least one extra bottle for when you run out of the products you are currently using.
Dyson Airwrap Styler
If you were planning to get Dyson’s bestselling hairstyling tool, the Sephora sale is the right time. With up to a 20% discount on this pricey item, you will actually save a lot of money.
Rouge: $479, VIB: $509, Insider: $539
Crown Affair The Ritual Shampoo
I’ve been on a mission on finding the best clean beauty shampoo. I had high hopes for the new Ordinary hairline, but we all know how it went. This shampoo has been the best I’ve tried in a while.
Rouge: $29, VIB: $30, Insider: $32
T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers
A quick 15-minutes hair “do” is easy to accomplish with the help of hot rollers. According to the reviews, this set by T3 is the industry’s standard. It’s on top of my Sephora VIB sale wishlist.
Rouge: $104, VIB: $110, Insider: $117
Sol de Janeiro Beija Flor Elasti-Cream
Every time Sol de Janeiro releases a new body product, it immediately becomes a bestseller. The advertised “retinol-mimicking” effect of this new launch sounds exciting enough to try.
Rouge: $38, VIB: $40, Insider: $43
Kate Somerville Resurfacing Body Scrub
We are all familiar and obsessed with BHA body lotions. Resurfacing body scrub is a new product category that sounds like a perfect combo of physical and chemical exfoliation.
Rouge: $45, VIB: $48, Insider: $50
