Sephora VIB Event- It's Here!!

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 

So I got my email today for the Sephora VIB event along with the 20% off coupon! Well, I can't quite remember exactly but I think last year the VIB gift was a $15 gift card. I'm not sure if this is taking the place of that or if that's coming later in December. Anyone know? Either way it's time to update my shopping list :)

Are the email and card sent via mail just the same? Because I noticed the barcode at the bottom of the email. I have to look for my card! We just got back to Bay Area from our SoCal home and I hope I ddnt leave it home. icon_cry.gif

Don't worry its good for the 8-12, so maybe it's still coming your way! If not always check the mail, they usually send me one online and the card in the mail.

I actually opted out of the email subscriptions! Hopefully, I'll get it soon

Is it a generic code or an individual one?

 

I am a VIB, but I never get Sephora e-mails. I've e-mailed them multiple times & they always just say they've reset my e-mail & promotional messages should begin in ten days, but they never do! I don't want to miss out on this promo!

To use it online the code is generic-- enter CELEBRATE at checkout. However, it looks like you do need to show the card or email at the in store event.

I am a new VIB this year with a question. Is it really worth going into store for tote and 'new beauty' they mention? Or am I just as happy shopping from home?

 

(The invite is beautiful)

post #12 of 44

.. the code's not even working & they said it will be up 12 midnight EST. Fail -__-

 Stick with home.  The email seems to indicate you'll still get the tote, plus you'll have a wider selection and better chances that what you want is in stock.

I agree. The last VIB event that we went months ago, we went to two stores just to get a bag of freebies and umbrella, they all ran out. If getting to a store super early is your thing, you've got high chances of getting the tote. I might as well shop online because there are some pretty items that are available ONLINE only.

Thanks for the information!

It's live!  Just placed my order :)  I was sitting there, all ready with my cart, impatiently waiting.

Ha!  Me, too...

 

Whadda get?  I was pretty good (I think!).  I got the Boscia Black Mask set, the entire set of the Fresh lip glosses, small Amore Pacific cleanser, small Kate Somerville ExoliKate, and the Sephora UD Build Your Own Palette (I'll keep the shadow and sell the empty palette).

 

And...I made a second order for my fav Murad cleanser to get the ITKIT (Best in Show)... If they get my favorite Josie Maran lotion back in stock I'll get the first ITKIT too (Glow one).  I'm not interested in the third one for some reason...

 

Will still stop by my local store tomorrow while in town to see if they have any 100 pt perks worth picking up while they have the 20% off.  But nothing left other than some brush cleaner than I'm dying to have other than stock up on my Josie Maran body butter stuff.

Ooh, I love those Fresh glosses.  I adored the free birthday ones and took my mother's too, hehe.  I toyed with the idea of the Boscia black gel since I loved the sample I got last time I ordered, but with my recent Ulta/TJ Maxx trips, I have too much skin care already. blush.gif

 

I went kinda value-kit crazy, lol.  I ended with the Pantone Shades of Nature palette,  the OCC Lip Tar gift set, the Bare Minerals RSVP set, the Sephora Glitz and Glam sampler,  the Betsey Johnson Too-too set with the clutch, and the Sephora mini glitter liners (I'm a sucker for glitter).  I also picked up another TokyoMilk balm (La Vie en Rose), but what I'm weirdly most excited for is the 21 Drops set.  I was hoping to try the brand from Birchbox but no luck.  And oddly, the set was exactly the 4 I wanted most.  Oh, and I cashed in my points to get the NARS set. 

 

I need to stop the beauty spending, but I keep eying Lippmann on Beauty.com's sale....

I agree, you don't need to attend the in store event unless you want to take advantage of the other things they have to offer like the 20% off for you AND a guest, the tote, and the makeup lessons. I have a straight up addiction to Sephora, so I will be attending the in store event to pick up some things I need to see in person first, then will probably order another order online before the 12th. laughs.gif

 

Also, did any of you see the other promotions they have going for VIBs? They have about 3 other coupon codes you can use at checkout. If you go to your account and go to the beauty insider section and click on Learn about VIB, they have updated it to reflect the other offers they have.

I too am addicted to those Fresh glosses! I put the mini set on my wish list this year. Also, I just purchased my first 2 Deborah Lippmann polishes last week because I had a coupon to Zappos for $15 off. Let me tell you.. I think that might have been a very bad thing. Her polishes are AMAZING! Long lasting and I swear my nails looked way healthier after removing the polish (that didn't even chip after 5 days btw). UGH I just wish they weren't so expensive.

I popped into my local store long enough to buy my conditioner and get out. It was a little more crowded than usual and there was a DJ, but otherwise it seemed business as usual to me.

post #23 of 44

I can't wait to use my coupon. What's everyone getting? I've been considering getting the Fresh Soy cleanser and possibly a Peter Roth Thomas skin product (although I have tons of skin products from my box subscriptions at home). 

post #24 of 44

I didn't use my coupon yet because I really really wanted the classic Itkit.  I also got the NARS 500 point perk!  I bought the UD Fun Palette, sale Sephora gold glitter eyeliner, and sale Buxom gloss in Carmen.  I also got a Kate Somerville sample, .25 oz!

I have to agree with everyone that said to just shop from home.  The tote they gave out was the cheapest looking bag so far (I have 3 others).  It's feels like a thin plastic that will rip easy.  Not worth a trip in my opinion.

post #26 of 44

I ended up ordering online a few things I have wanted to try, including the Lorac  palette everyone raves about and the tote was already in my shopping cart. I also got a little men's shaving gift set to put under the tree for my husband. I was sold when I saw it came with a certificate for a full size of whatever product you liked best from all the deluxe samples. Thanks for the advice everyone!

I want to kill myself right now for stepping in Sephora and spent $30. I so agree with the tote. I was like... pfffff...

I hate that I am the kind of person who doesnt go out of Sephora without nothing in hand. I should have just spent it online and have those ITKITS instead. Booo.

(Which I am gonna do now..)

I just saw the same stuff that I see online, just with free candies and DJ booth.

Sephora Tote and lame purchase: Heeeheee (Click to show)

my sentiments exactly... I went to a SiJCP and it was so understaffed, 2 employees, and then the manager was whisked away to talked to corporate employees. NO freebies except for the cheap bag. Also, the girl before me got a mini primer potion and a moisturizer thrown in her bag for free and I got nothing.... I wasted 45 minutes and a bunch of $ on stuff. grrr. I think im bitter that I wasted time that I could have spent doing other things, and who wouldnt want some freebies. And I would have much rather have gotten an Itkit rather than the 20% off. And the material of the bag is so cheap.

I am happy with the sale!  I went to the only Sephora in NYC that had the OCC Lip Tars set (I got the last one; sorry NYCers!).  They were super generous with the samples and did my makeup for free.  I got the Lip Tars set, the Naked 2 Palette, the Illamasque Mystery Kit (which was awesome and a great deal!), Korres Jasmine Body Butter, Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray, and Sephora Mattifying Pressed Powder.  I saved $47 and got all of those samples and the Nars 500 point perk!  Definitely worth it for me!

I went yesterday, took a friend and we had a blast. Got some Tatre kits that will not be discounted on her site in BF. Love the new sets. Some MUFE & Dior perfume.
