Haul | VIB Rouge Haul – Black Friday & VIB Rouge Sale 2013

I try to not show too many hauls on my blog, but I think this one merits a special post since it was the haul that got me to the VIB Rouge status. I had not plan on hitting the VIB Rouge status (I mean, $1000 on beauty products in a year? Ouch.) Without realizing it, I had hit quite close to the mark in November, and only needed to spend about $131 more to get there. That being said, the Black Friday and VIB$20 of Reward Card events were happening back to back, and I figured if I was going to spend the money, I might as well do it frugally and make the most of the available discounts.

Haul | VIB Rouge Haul - Black Friday & VIB Rouge Sale 2013

From the Sephora Black Friday $12 deals, I only walked away with 2 items, and they were the PhilosophyPurity Cleanser ($13-52, available here) which I always miss out on because I never make it to the store on time. This time, I actually lined up 30 minutes before opening (and met an amazing lady and her husband!) and snatched 2 of these. I wish I could have brought my Mom along since she would have been able to pick up more, but it’s okay, it’s not very Christmas-y to hoard all the good stuff anyway!

I think I did quite a bit of damage with the 20% off Sale in early November (which requalified me to VIB for next year) so there wasn’t much that interested me this time around. However, $20 off $50 is still a 40% discount, and I needed to spend just a bit of money to get to Rouge anyways, and so I picked up a couple of old favourites which I will be reviewing soon.

  • Make up For EverHD Foundation in 117 ($49, sephora.ca)
  • Make up For EverAqua Shadow ($24, sephora.ca)
  • Make up For EverMat Velvet+ Foundation in 30 ($42, sephora.ca)
  • Too FacedAll I want for Christmas (Present for my bestie!) ($54, sephora.ca)
  • Benefit CosmeticsIt’s a Love Fest Holiday Tin ($43, sephora.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart – I’ve been hunting this down everywhere including Shoppers Drug Mart and 4 different Sephora!)

The foundations had to happen because I’m a foundation junkie (have you been reading my latest reviews?) I’m also a sucker for value sets so the Benefit holiday tin ended up on #1 on the list since it was so hard to find.

That being said, check out the VIB Rouge Perks I got. I actually got all of these because the girls who were helping me out were SO. SWEET. She said that they give out free water bottles (with a somewhat tacky VIB Rouge sticker on it – could definite do with a redesign) for Rouge shoppers now. I felt pretty special walking around in store while getting a quick makeover in store (Hello, Hourglass Ambient Powder!) Sephora was also giving out a free compact mirror for the holidays. It’s the same concept as the mirror that you would get when you qualify for the VIB status. I wasn’t supposed to get it because you actually have to qualify as a VIB Rouge by October? Not really sure with the exact timing but the girl said I could have it and even her supervisor said it’s fine.

Which one of these would you like a review first? What is your favourite product?

the water bottle! such a nice touch. ????

Yep, definitely a nice surprise even though I wasn’t “technically” a Rouge yet while shopping haha ????

Nice products!<3

Love them – thanks ????

the stuff looks fab.!! xx

Thank you – very excited to play with them!

Very nice things you got!

Thank you!

Great haul!

Thank you Samantha!

Amazing stuff! I’m so jealous of how Sephora over there have so many amazing sets and gift boxes! I would love that tin from benefit and the too faced set! I saw it on Beautybay and wanted to buy it but I had to pay a load for my new camera! Great stuff!

I got really lucky with the Benefit Tin and Too Faced sets – they sold out sooo quickly! I’m jealous of your new camera – which model did you get?

Oooh you’re a VIB Rouger! I have a feeling I might reach it this year, but my Shoppers has so many great lines that most of my money goes there instead of at Sephora!

oooh! Good luck! Shoppers usually has great promotions/points events that are always enticing me to skip Sephora!
