If you are beauty products junkie, I am sure that you are very familiar with Sephora. I received their VIB invite in the mail the other day so I made my way over there for the sample bag and free umbrella. I was glad that the event was an all day thing because when they start these things at 6:30, the place turns into a clusterfuck. Am I the only one who was a little peeved that this time around they only gave a 15% discount instead of the usual 20%? Don’t get me wrong: I appreciate any discount but that along with the super shitty 100 and 500pt perks, I am not as loyal to Sephora as I used to be. If you’re not familiar with Sephora’s loyalty program, you get 1pt for every dollar that you spend. If you spend $350.00 or more in a calendar year, you become a VIB which is supposed to come with a lot of perks. Not so much anymore. I didn’t really need anything so I just went to browse. Actually, I wanted to get some concealer but apparently they don’t carry it in store anymore so I will have to get it online. I ended up purchasing a few things anyway.
I got the nails inc set because it was on sale for $10 which is a pretty good deal considering each polish is $9.50 on its own. I’ve never really tried the sephora brand nail polish but the color is so pretty. It’s a tangerine orange with fine gold microshimmer. Lastly, I picked up my favorite daytime moisturizer.
Now, for the free goodies:
Samples: Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara, Givenchy Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen, Especially Escada Solid Fragrance, Boscia BB Cream, Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara and Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo/Conditioner.
How cute is this umbrella? (Yes, I was watching I Love Lucy. lol) I’m glad they gave umbrellas this time rather than totes. I must have a billion Sephora totes already!
If you’re a VIB you can take advantage of the 15% discount in-store and online through April 6, 2012. The online code is CHICVIB.
