The long-awaited Sephora sale for VIB and VIB Rouge members is finally here! This is one of the most anticipated times of the year for beauty-lovers, as it offers a discounted price for VIB and VIB Rouge members! From August 24th until September 3rd 2018, VIB members can receive 15% off with the code “YESVIB” and VIB Rouge members can receive 20% off with the code “YESROUGE” (once online, and unlimited use in store!)

For beauty lovers or anyone on a budget, the Sephora sale is the perfect time to stock up on necessities, or products you’ve been eyeing – especially since Sephora carries a plethora of luxury items with a hefty price tag!

I’ve had my eye on a couple of products, and have been waiting for the sale for months! I always like to read other people’s shopping guides to see what products they recommend and what’s trending now. For this year’s sale, I thought I’d put together a list of some of the newest and hottest products at Sephora – and all from cruelty-free brands!

What’s On My List

There are so many exciting new launches at Sephora, from new concealers and foundations like the Becca Longwear concealer and the Too Faced Born This Way concealer. There are also brand new lines finally available, like Jouer! I’ve been wanting to try Jouer for so long now, and am so excited that it’s available online from Sephora! I definitely have my eye on the powder highlighter, the foundation, and the Long Wear Lip Toppers! I also think sales are the perfect time to get value sets, as you’re getting even more bang for your buck! I’ve been so curious about this set from Milk makeup, and Nudestix!

Last but definitely not least – eyeshadow palettes. I am a sucker for eyeshadow palettes, and there is no shortage of  palette launches this year. The stand out ones to me are definitely the Norvina palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills, The Violet Voss Flamingo Pro palette, the Fenty Beauty Moroccan Spice Palette, and the Urban Decay Born To Run palette. The Sephora Sale is the perfect time to save a few dollars on that palette you’ve been wanting!

There are always so many exciting new launches at Sephora, especially during May-June. This is peak time for Summer launches, and this year definitely has no shortage of newness. I put together a list of the new & hot launches at Sephora – all of which are from cruelty-free brands!

 

Oh boy. Where does one even begin? My wallet is practically weeping – I want everything! These are all prestige brands, so they are pricey – however, these are some of my all-time favourite brands. They are high quality, high-performance brands focusing on quality ingredients – and most importantly, they are cruelty-free (because really, it’s 2018 and testing on animals is barbaric and unnecessary!)

Products On My Radar

Powders

I’m most intrigued by the Hourglass & Marc Jacobs setting powders, as they’re rumoured to be absolutely incredible. I love using loose powder to set my makeup, especially ultra finely-milled powder as it looks the most natural and undetectable on the skin!

Lip Glosses

Lip glosses are one of the most popular trends for the summer. While this may not be particularly groundbreaking, I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many lip glosses. There are so many shades and formulas, and this season sees a surge of high-shine and metallic glosses. The Becca Glow Lip Gloss looks stunning from what I’ve seen in review videos! The Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Gloss Stick has definitely sparked my interest. I love the regular glosses, so to see a new formula in a stick?! I’m not sure what to expect from this, but I shall have to investigate further!

Setting Sprays

In the sun and heat, we need all the help we can get to keep our makeup looking fresh. Setting sprays are an absolute must for me. Not only are they key to absorbing any excess powder sitting on the skin and adding a healthy glow, they also help to lock your makeup in place to prolong your makeup wear!  Cover FX recently launched the High-Performance Setting spray, and I’ll definitely be trying it once I’ve used up my Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray!
