Surprise Sephora Sale - Beauty Haul!

If you haven't already heard, Sephora is in the middle of an awesome surprise sale! They are calling it a "Beauty Insider Appreciation Event". I am hearing that they are revamping their rewards program, and this is sort of a way to promote it. You can shop the sale HERE and details on the sales for each member tier are below!

Insider Members - 8/30-9/3 you get 10% off everything with one-time code YESINSIDER

I got a little crazy last night and ordered some things to try. Perfect time for some savings, right? I split my purchases up into 3 categories for you - Skincare, Makeup, and Misc. You can click the images to browse and shop, then I listed everything below the images with a description or why I purchased the item! I hope you enjoy shopping with me!


  • Sunday Riley - Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit - $85 / $68 on sale: 
    • So excited to try this "transformational power product duo that combines lactic acid and trans-retinol ester to exfoliate and brighten the skin." I have heard great things about these products and this brand, so I decided to try a set vs. just 1 product during this sale. 
  • Ole Henriksen - Traveling Wonders Travel Set - $48 / $38 on sale:
    • I LOVE and use this foaming face wash 1-2x a day, so this is a perfect way to try some of their other products and get a small size of my face wash to keep in the shower or take on trips. It is a "five-piece travel set of bestselling skincare essentials to cleanse, brighten, hydrate, and visibly smooth and firm for a glowing complexion on the go."
  • LaNeige - Lip Sleeping Mask - $20 / $16 on sale: 
    • I have never tried this, but I scoured other blogs last night to see what people were buying, and this seems to be a cult fav that I have never heard of, so I am eager to try it out. It is described as "a leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight."  
  • Isle Of Paradise - Self Tanning Drops - $29 / $23 on sale: 
    • I got the color "Medium: Golden Glow". I heard from someone on Instagram that these are awesome to mix with your foundation, and it is supposed to be easy on your face - "A bottle of custom-made self-tanning drops that allow you to control your glow." 


  • Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner - $20 / $16 on sale: 
    • This is my ride or die liquid liner. I almost purchased a Lancome' liner that I read about to try it out, but it was $30, I always love this one, always go back to it and repurchase it, so I decided to just get this one because I know I love it. I get the color Trooper: Satin Black. 
  • Sephora Collection Brow Gel - $12 / $10 on sale: 
    • I usually use the Anastasia clear brow gel to set my brows after I fill them in and brush them out, but it is $22, so I am using this sale to try a new product, and hope the cheaper option is just as good! 
  • Benefit ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush - $24 / $19 on sale: 
    • This is another one I have never tried, but have heard good things from my friends. I am trying color 3.5, neutral medium brown. It is "a waterproof cream-gel brow color that easily builds natural-looking to dramatic brows." I usually use Anastasia Dip Brow, but this is a color and a brush, so I wanted to try it. Just to let you know, Sephora is great about their return policy. If this color doesn't work for me, or the product isn't right, you can return for a refund or exchange the product. That makes it a little less scary to try a new product! 
  • Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Illuminating - $45 / $36 on sale: 
    • I got this in the color Natural Radiance. It is "a lightweight, buildable sheer foundation formula that delivers a youthful, radiant finish." I think this will be good as an illuminating primer, or to use on days I don't really feel like wearing much makeup, but I want a little bit of coverage and glow. 
  • Buxom - Full-On™ Plumping Lip Cream Gloss - $21 / $17 on sale: 
    • I am surprised I only got 1 lip color/ product! LOL. I actually had this in my cart with like 3 different colors, but decided just to try the color Hot Toddy, which is a "toasty nude". I usually wear White Russian, and I was reading other people's favorite colors, and I would just end up buying every color if I did that. So - hopefully I will love this one. It is a "creamy no-shimmer gloss that plumps to perfection with a teasing tingle." I love this to keep in my purse and re-apply throughout the day. 


  • Kopari - Coconut Deodorant - $14 / $11 on sale: 
    • I have been using the Tarte deodorant, and I like it, but I am not in LOVE with it, so I am still on the hunt for the perfect natural deodorant. It is "vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without aluminum, baking soda, and silicone." I have been wanting to try out this brand for a while too, so I am excited to try this out. 
  • Olaplex - No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo - $28 / $22 on sale: 
    • My hair has been breaking and thinning due to my autoimmune disease and medications. I cut it short, and I really just want to take good care of it so I can grow it out. This is a little pricey, but I only wash my hair 1-2/week, so I am hoping I like it. I have always heard good things about this brand, and I heard that people were excited that the line and the shampoo and conditioner came to Sephora. "This shampoo repairs and protects hair from everyday stresses—including damaged hair, split ends, and frizz—by re-linking broken bonds. No.4 is color-safe and proven to reduce breakage and strengthen all types of hair." 
  • Olaplex - No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner - $28 / $22 on sale: 
    • Had to get the set, right? This is "a highly-moisturizing, reparative conditioner that protects and repairs damaged hair, split ends, and frizz by re-linking broken bonds." I also like that these products are paraben and sulfate free. 
Here are the new changes to the program for you to reference:

Before you shop, or at least before you check out, make sure you use Ebates to get 3% cash back!
Also, there are a few restrictions and exclusions that I discovered and you should know before planning your purchase - "Dyson products will not be a part of the sale, and customers are limited to three Drunk Elephant products and three Tatcha products per transaction. The discount is also not eligible for customizable sets and PLAY! by Sephora subscriptions." 

Ok - that is it! I can't wait for my mail to get here. It is going to feel like Christmas in August! I got free flash shipping, so I am hoping to get everything in early next week. I want to know what you guys bought!!!! Comment here or on my Instagram or Facebook page or wherever! Love you guys, have a wonderful weekend and week. 


Note: This was NOT a collaboration with Sephora and I WAS NOT compensated for shopping this sale. All opinions are genuine and my own. When you make a purchase through an affiliate link, I may be compensated a small percentage of the sale.
