Dyson Special Edition Supersonic Hair Dryer Set: You’ve probably heard the hype about the Dyson hair dryer. The high-speed, extremely powerful dryer gives you smooth, sleek, voluminous hair in minutes, no matter your hair type. The unique shape will cut your blow drying time in half. Fifteen percent off $400 is saving quite a bit of money, so if you’ve been contemplating trying this out, now’s the time. This special edition version comes with a cute, compact light pink case that’s ideal for traveling and storage. ($399)
Jo Malone London Peony & Blush Suede Cologne: The sophisticated British fragrance brand made its long-awaited Sephora debut last week, and that timing couldn’t have been a coincidence. Get 15% off of one of Jo Malone’s elegant scents. Peony & Blush Suede is a perfect floral with key notes of red apple, peony and suede. Every Jo Malone scent tends to last on skin for a very long time – a few spritzes at the start of the night is all you need. Each scent arrives in a beautiful box wrapped with a ribbon – the perfect gift for a friend, or treat for yourself. ($130)
Tom Ford Lip Color Matte: Spending over fifty dollars on a lipstick probably seems unjustifiable to most, but there’s something so tempting about owning one of Tom Ford’s signature lippies. Use Sephora’s big sale as your excuse to splurge. This collection features every shade from a pinky nude to a vampy plum, all in a velvet matte finish. Try Flame, a vivid power red that will undoubtedly become your favorite ‘special occasion’ crimson shade. ($53)
Ouai VOLUME Shampoo: Have flat, fine hair? Invest in this game-changing shampoo (and the matching conditioner) from cult-fave brand Ouai. It cleanses hair without weighing it down. Used with the corresponding conditioner, your hair is left silky smooth and looking full. The perfect pre-blowout combination of products. ($28 for shampoo, $26 for conditioner)
Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation: The VIB sale is ideal for two types of purchases – trying out new products you wouldn’t normally go for, or restocking your pricier holy grail products. The Armani Luminous Silk Foundation falls into the latter category for me. This is arguably the greatest foundation ever. It leaves your skin looking absolutely flawless and glowing. It’s the perfect foundation for a party, wedding or big night out. A little goes a long way – blend in a few drops with your BeautyBlender and you’re good to go. ($64)
Farsali Rose Gold Elixir: This beauty oil is ridiculously popular on YouTube…and with good reason. The fast-absorbing, multi-tasking oil is a dream for anyone with dry skin. You can pat the oil into your skin for intense hydration, or mix it into your foundation for an extra glow. The oil is packed with different vitamins, antioxidants, essential fatty acids…plus, 24-karat gold. How’s that for luxurious? ($54)
Stila Matte ’n Metal Eyeshadow Palette: Beauty lovers know you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes, and the VIB sale is the perfect excuse to add a new one to your collection! This Stila palette is composed of wearable pinks and neutrals, in matte and metallic finishes. Use the mattes for a soft daytime look, or add some metallic shades to your lid for a glamorous evening eye. ($49)
Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade: This limited edition set is a fantastic deal even before the additional 15% off. It features five full-size versions of Benefit’s bestselling bronzers and blushes. The set includes the classic Hoola matte bronzer, the new Hoola Lite, baby pink Dandelion, rose gold Rockateur and the coral GALifornia. The kit also features a little brush to make application quick and easy. ($58)
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops: Cover FX’s Custom Enhancer Drops are truly unlike any other product on the market. It’s literally liquid gold (…or champagne, or bronze, depending on the shade you go for). $42 for a tiny bottle may seem steep, but a little really goes a very long way. You’ll never need to restock on this out-of-this-world product. Why not use the sale as an incentive to try it out. Go for the new shade Halo, a uniquely holographic hue with hints of lavender, if you’re feeling bold. ($42)
La Mer Creme de la Mer: La Mer is the holy grail of skincare, and this moisturizer is arguably their greatest product. The brand’s name is synonymous with luxury, elegance and glamour. Now’s your chance to own your own ‘jar of magic.’ The fast-acting moisturizing cream can reduce the appearance of pores, dullness and texture with just a few days of consistent use. ($170)
