VIB Early Access Event
April 3rd to April 11th 2014

VIB Status is the second tier of Sephora Rewards program. It is earned by spending $350 on purchases (before taxes) in a calendar year (requalification is required the following year).

I recently got the VIB status (click here to read more about it) and so, I got an email for the early access event, which is held at the stores on April 3rd 2014:

I'm planning on going there early with a friend. I'm looking forward to it. I really want that cosmetic bag! It's so cute and I just love the added red touch to it!

If you haven't received the coupon,  you can print it from Sephora website or shop online using the code VIBTICKET.

VIB Rouge Early Access Event
March 30th to April 11th 2014

VIB Rouge Status is earned by spending $1,000 on purchases (before taxes) in a calendar year (requalification is required the following year). 

You get the same cosmetic bag as VIB members do but you have the earliest access to sale than VIB and Beauty Insiders. Also, there's a "closed-door" event meaning that the stores are open to VIB Rouge members for few hours, where you free samples, coffee and bites. 

Here's a coupon I found online:

Products You Should Consider Buying

I've read great reviews about most of the following products and decided to try them out. Since there is a sale going on now, it's a great time to take advantage of it.

Here's a list of products that I have used and absolutely LOVE:
    • Beautyblender: I absolutely LOVE this! It's a great tool and really useful! I mostly use it for concealer, contouring and highlighting but I have used it for foundation as well. I regret not purchasing 2 for price of $33 (about $7 more than for price of one).
      I would suggest anyone to get 2 and give other to a family member or friend to try. 
    • Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner: I was looking for a good cream liner and I was browsing through Sephora's website and reading reviews to find a good cream-liner. I saw good reviews about Clinique's cream liner and decided to try it out. The moment I tried it on for the first time, I immediately fell in love! It goes on so smoothly and I like the brush that it comes on with it too. 
There is one item that I haven't used but heard great reviews. Honestly, I've checked Sephora's reviews and Youtube reviews and this is the product that I would say 99% of people loved: Clarisonic Mia2(TM) Skin Cleansing System Pink

Now it is definitely pricey (about $180) but many people have noticed improvements after several uses. Many reviewers mentioned that it may make you break out at first but it's important to keep going. 

This is definitely an item that I'm planning on getting! I'd be saving about $31 for the Mia2.  

You can read about some of the differences to help you choose which one to get: 
  • Mia is a little bigger than Mia2, which is much easier to handle. Unlike Mia, Mia2 also has 2 different speeds and a buzzer to tell you when to move on to next part of your face.  
  • Aria has 3 different speeds (Mia2 has 2), battery indicator light and USB charger.

I made a list of the things I'd like to purchase, so I don't buy unnecessary things (or at least try to)...
