What to buy at the Sephora Holiday Sale 2018

It's almost THAT time of the year! Yes I'm talking about the semi-annual (although this year, for the third time) Sephora Sale AND the anticipated delivery of our first baby 👧🏻! Exciting that they will most likely be happening within the same time frame -- thankfully I feel pretty prepared to tackle both. 🌚

From the community forum on Sephora's website I've gathered the following intel:

ROUGE 20% off with code ROUGEBONUS - FRI 10/26 - MON 10/29 & FRI 11/2 - MON 11/5.
* For Rouge on 10/26 only, bring a friend and extend your rouge discount to them in store! Plus, you also get an exclusive sample set with any purchase (first-come, first-served).

VIB 20% off FRI 11/2 - MON 11/5

Beauty Insider 15% off FRI 11/2 - MON 11/5

I think this is a great opportunity to make purchases in the following categories: 
  • Restock on items that you use up frequently. Don't hoard though!
  • Value/Holiday Sets: these are gorgeous as gifts, or opportunities to try out new products/shades. Do your research on each item in the set, and do the math to find out the value you are getting. 
  • Splurge-y items that you would not purchase at full price EVER.
Read on for my "LOVED" list for this sale, with additional recommendations at the end. All the images in this post are credited to the Sephora website.
