Sephora VIB Haul(Part 1)

If you are a Sephora VIB member, I'm sure you were busy last weekend when they had their 20% off sale. I placed multiple orders online during their Friends and Family sale (one week prior) and the VIB sale. One benefit of being a VIB Rouge member is it is free shipping with every order. There are so many popular products that are sold out at one point or another. I was able to grab what I want and place order immediately before they run out again.

First order is a very small order. I placed the order mainly to grab the Blitz bag and redeemed 500 insider points for the Urban Decay set.

Origins Age Defense treatment lotion with White Tea
Smith's Rosebud Salve

I am almost out of my Origins toner and I want to try out this age defense treatment lotion. As the weather is colder and drier, want to switch up to a toner which is not as drying and have more hydrating effect.

As I need $35 to qualify for the Blitz bag, I added the Rosebud Salve lip balm to my cart. I am surprised I haven't tried this highly-raved lip balm before. Excited to try.

Let's go back to the main reason I placed this order :)

The blitz bag I picked is the Holly Jolly Nourishment set(see my previous post for all the options for the bag). 

The goodies came in a very nice black weaved pouch. 

Included: Living proof nourishing styling cream
Buxom mascara in blackest black
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Petal
Living proof hair primer
Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm in Nude Glow
Urban Decay B6 Prep Spray
Origins Plantscription SPF 25 Anti aging cream

This is the 500 BI 500 point Urban Decay set:

B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray
Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Eyeshadow in Mushroom
All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

What a great set for free! Oh well, when you spend enough money at Sephora and collect enough BI points, it is well worth it  to wait for some good sets to come along. I believe this is still available so if you're thinking of redeeming, I suggest to do it sooner rather than later.


  1. Oh the UD kit looks awesome, such a good 500pt perk!

    1. it is such a good value 500 pt perk. I am really enjoying the prep and setting spray. It is pricey to get them in full-sized so it is an awesome way to try them out before committing to buy them.

  2. i'm also very impressed with the blitz sample bag!
    i passed on the vib sale itself but got my essentials from sephora so i'm pretty happy.
    looking forward to part 2! ;)

    1. Too bad only one blitz bag per account. I would be so tempted to do another order just to get another bag :)

  3. I placed an order and got the nourishment set as well! I can't wait to test everything out!

    1. I just tried the Urban Decay prep spray and it is very nice. I spray the setting spray after and my makeup stay put all day long.

  4. I did huge damage during the VIB sale! I also ordered the Hourglass Ambient palette, looking forward to checking it out in person. How long does it take for your orders to arrive? This is my first time ordering from Sephora online.

    1. You would love the Hourglass ambient palette. I have been using every day since I got it. It is such a natural powder which gives you the prettiest glow without any shimmer. Usually the Sephora orders take 5 business days to arrive. But with the crazy VIB sale, it takes much longer. Once it is shipped, you will receive an email. Then usually within 2-3 days, you will get another email from Borderfree once your order reaches the border(at Mississauga) and from then, you will get your order within a few days with Canada Post tracking info.

  5. oh wow, these all look like great products! thanks for sharing!
