The Best Things to Buy from Sephora's Epic Holiday Sale – Abigail Nora

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Sephora’s annual Beauty Insider sale event, of course. VIB and VIB Rouge Members get 20% off their purchase, and Beauty Insiders can take 15% off. It’s an amazing opportunity to save at Sephora on luxe brands like NARS, Ouai, Sunday Riley, Tata Harper and yes, even Fenty Beauty. The one exception, it seems, is ColourPop.

There’s almost too much to choose from: skincare! fragrance! gift sets! And then there’s the dilemma of whether to use your 15-20% off privilege on gifts (smart and practical) or yourself (more fun!). But I’m here to help. Here are some of the best products you can snag for 15 or 20% off from Sephora, now through November 15. (Use codes INSIDER15, 20FORVIB or 20FORROUGE depending on your status.)

If you want… classic products for your own collection.

Now is the time to stock up on favorites like NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and YSL Touche Eclat.

If you want… a gift set from a luxe brand to try yourself or gift to others.

Not going to lie, I’m eyeing those Tatcha and Drunk Elephant sets for myself! How perfect is that Herbivore Coco Rose set for a girlfriends’ gift exchange, though?

If you want…to buy a set and use each item as a small gift or stocking stuffer for different people.

This is one of my favorite tricks: purchasing a set of similar products and then using them as stocking stuffers or smaller individual gifts. That dry shampoo set would be perfect to split up among friends, because lord knows we’re all obsessed with dry shampoo. Masks, candles and mini perfumes all work really well, too.

If you want…to majorly, majorly splurge.

Because who doesn’t need a Swarvoski-encrusted water bottle in her life? The Sephora sale is also probably one of the only times you can purchase legendary products like La Mer for less than full price.

If you want…to try something new.

Curious about a new beauty line or tool? Test it out for 15-20% off!
