My Sephora VIB Fall 2016 Sale Haul

It’s that time of year again….the SEPHORA VIB SALE!

Twice a year Sephora launches a brief 20% off sale for their VIB and VIB Rouge Beauty Insiders (ie. second and third tier loyalty members).   I took advantage of this sale and picked up a selection of my beauty essentials, new favourites, splurges, an anniversary gift, and a free point purchase.

In today’s blog, I decided to only include images and descriptions (from the Sephora website) instead of including my full reviews and/or swatches of each product, like I usually do.  I thought this would be a great opportunity to hear from you about which of the listed products you would like me to review, swatch, compare to competitors…etc (not to mention, prevent this post from being insanely long).

Added note:  This year, I decided to purchase all my items online so that I could get an additional 4% back from Ebates.   (click here to learn more and sign up through my referral link…it’s free and totally worth it!).   


Ole Henriksen Pure Truth™ Melting Cleanser 
This multitasking cleanser melts on contact, transforming into an oil that gently dissolves and washes away long-lasting, waterproof makeup and impurities, leaving skin superbly hydrated and radiant. 

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation®
This oil-free moisturizer has a unique lightweight, whipped texture that penetrates skin and with essential moisture.  It can be used as a base for makeup application, and it leaves skin looking and feeling soft, healthy, nourished, and radiant.

New Favourites


Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – Eden
This 24-hour wear, crease-free shadow provides vibrant color and smoother application. Eden, a nude matte shade, glides on effortlessly, reduces the look of redness, and delivers full coverage for a gorgeous, subtle look when worn alone.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
This clean, satin-finish formula helps keep makeup looking fresh and prevents fading. Veil Mineral Primer also absorbs excess oils and minimizes the appearance of pores by evenly distributing light to help hide and soften the look of skin imperfections and fine lines.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation
This revolutionary foundation features uniquely-coated pigments that provide medium to buildable coverage with an even lighter weight, second-skin texture that looks just like skin.  It contains hyaluronic spheres to ensure comfortable wear on all normal, dry and combination skin types, and it lasts all day, leaving a natural-looking finish.


Clinique sets you up with 6 delightful mini Chubby Sticks in an adorable pink tin that’s ready for gifting. You get the original Clinique Moisturizing Lip Color Balm (Curviest Caramel and Broadest Berry) as well as the Intense version (Mighty Momosa, Super Strawberry, Chunky Cherry, and Woppin’ Watermelon)!

*note: this product is now sold out online but I believe you can purchase the individual colours. That being said, Clinique does have a similar but larger set called Tiny Temptations Set.


Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette
This exclusive palette includes 12, rose-hued neutral eye shades, including ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls, and glimmering metallics. Every shade in Naked3 features UD’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power, and blendability.

Anniversary Gift

(ie. my Fiance wanted to buy this for me for our anniversary…so he took advantage of this sale too!)

Gucci Bamboo Gift Set
Taking inspiration from the symbolism of strength and elegance, this alluring fragrance translates the essence of today’s multifaceted woman.  The fragrance is soft and intense at once to exude power and femininity.

This set contains:
– 2.5 oz/ 75 mL Eau de Parfum
– 3.3 oz/ 100 mL Perfumed Body Lotion
– 3.3 oz/ 100 mL Perfumed Shower Gel

FREE Point Perk (500 points)

Urban Decay Urban Additions Eyeshadow Palette
This reward includes Fireball, Backfire, Righteous, and Backdoor eyeshadows as well as a Double Ended Eyeshadow Brush and one-time-use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original.

*note: this product is now sold out online but I believe you can purchase the individual colours  / products that I have linked above.

 Let me know which of the following product you would like to learn more about 🙂

What products did you purchase during the sale?  Any that you would recommend me checking out?  If you blogged about your Haul, post the link below in the comments section…I’d love to check it out!


(For full disclosure, please note that a couple of the links are shopstyle affiliate links (not direct Sephora links).  I figured that if the products are available at other places for the same price, why not select ones that reward me so I can buy more products to review for you!)

    I would love to hear more about the Ole Henriksen products! I’ve used a couple of products from that brand, and would love to try more, especially that melting cleanser.
