Sephora Spring Sale 20% 2019

2019sale_1Here’s our annual April-ish Sephora Beauty Insider Sale. I add “ish” because a good chunk of the sale veers into May.

  • Rouge gets 20% off from “April 26 – May 6”
  • VIB gets 15% off from “May 2 – May 6”
  • Insider gets 10% off from “May 2 – May 6”

Unlimited use in-store and online. (online code: HEYROUGE, for Rouge)

There are some exclusions. No applicable on products from “The Ordinary” or “MAC Viva Glam.” Limit 1 Dyson, 3 Drunk Elephant, 3 Tatcha, 5 Morphe items per transaction.

2019sale_2As usual, the coupon came with fragrance cards.

And of course, on the first day of the sale (April 26th), Rouge members are allowed to bring one other Beauty Insider who will also get 20% off on their purchased items. If this sale had begun just one week earlier, my friend from Korea may have gotten the chance to shop 20% off with me… 😦 Bad timing for us.

Pretty much excited about the sale but disappointed that The Ordinary products will be excluded from this promotion. I’d have liked to stock up on “Buffet” and “Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%.”

2016 Sephora Friends & Family Code + Surprise Event


Yesterday, I was in my happy place, browsing the numerous aisles of Sephora for the perfect winter mask, when an SA approached me. Mid-conversation, she suddenly leaned forward and in all confidentiality, asked me:

“…would you like to be my friend for today?”

I answered “Yes,” and received this lovely surprise:


This was the first time I received a tangible F&F code. This 20% off code is valid Oct 23 through Oct 30th, and is one-time use.

The code has to be provided by a Sephora SA, either through mail or card, and the quantity is supposedly limited, so don’t be too sad if your favorite SA doesn’t offer it; she might’ve just run out. (Do thank the lovely SAs if they’re nice to include you!)


There was a special in-store shopping event held from 7pm~9pm on the 23rd, where all buyers with these F&F cards received a cute bag filled with Sephora goodies. Items included were:

  • 1 Sephora sheet mask in “Ginseng”
  • 1 Sephora clear lip gloss
  • 1 Sephora Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover
  • 1 Sephora eyeshadow quad in “Nicole” (beautiful fall colors) 
  • 1 Make Up For Ever lipstick in “N9” (so happy! This was my go-to lip last fall)
  • 1 Sephora pencil sharpener

All items I know I’ll use up. (Not sure if all baggies had the same items) 

Time frame for the event was a little weird, but this might’ve been due to the limited amount of those baggies. 

+ There were also snacks available: Mini Kitkats, caramel apple pops, mini snickers, mini popcorn bags, mini water bottles etc.


I ended up purchasing two items:

  • Caudalie SOS Hydration set
  • Ren Glow and Go set

I snagged both sets for $57!

Did you receive a card from your Sephora SA? What will you buy with the 20% off code? 

2016 Sephora 15% Sale! What Will You Buy?

sephorasale3Check your mailbox ladies! The biannual Sephora Sale is imminent.

The April sale period will be “April 7th~13, 2016,” lasting a total seven days.

sephorasale1This arrived today. Sephora tends to send out these in batches, so don’t fret if it’s not here yet.

Granted, there’s been cases where Sephora forgot to send out a few, so if your love note is still MIA two days before the sale, do give them a call. (Or use the email code, which they’re sure to send out soon)

sephorasale2VIB Rouge & VIBs get 15% off and BIs get 10%, if what I’m told is correct.

The card is multi-use, so if you forget to buy something crucial your first day, there’s still six more days!

sephorasale4While I adore this gorgeous cherry blossom-esque card, I’m sad we won’t be getting a Sunday brunch event, a closed door event, and sample bags like previous years 😦

This time, the only perks of in-store shopping will be a free tote bag, w/ purchase.

sephorasale5This particular tote bag, it seems. You do get to bring a friend to share the perk, but only on the “First Access” day (4/07, Thursday).

Are you excited for the sale? What will you buy? What will you not buy? Would you like to see some changes in these annual sales? Please do share 🙂
