For most of you beauty lovers out there, you are probably well aware that Sephora has just started their VIB Appreciation Week which started yesterday and is set to end on the 17th. During this week, Beauty Insider members get 2x the points on their purchases, VIBs gets 3x and VIB Rouges get 4x the points. The Rouge members get an exclusive chance to shop before stores open to the public and to other members - they usually have coffee + light refreshments, brand reps to give you personalized advice and the best part is, the VIB Rouge members get access to holiday items that have not yet been released in stores. 

As I have recently moved, this was my first time attending the event at the Vaughan Mills location. I have to say, it was very organized, store was clean, and they had a good inventory of the holiday products. The only setback is that although you may want to shop to your hearts content, alot of the lines they have there didn't have a big enough range of products - for e.g. Eaton Center has the entire Marc Jacobs blush collection already on their gondolas, but Vaughan doesn't even have one.  Regardless, my mission this time was not to get alot of product as I typically wait til the event in November where you actually get a % off your purchase - typically for VIB Rouge members, it is about 15-20% off. 

Since this was just a point stocking event, I really just wanted to get the one thing I had my eyes set on - the Stila hilighter palette (seen below) that I had the chance to see at the ACI preview event a few weeks ago. 

In the above picture, the items featured were given to us upon entry into the store (no purchase necessary). With a $35 purchase, you were given an additional cosmetic bag, featured below which contains more deluxe samples. I typically love to keep these deluxe samples as they are quite convenient when you are travelling - I will have a post coming soon on "What's in My Travel Bag" - I will link it here when it's up.

As previously mentioned, I had only made two small purchases this time around as I only wanted the new limited edition Stila Hilighter Palette. The Marc Jacobs Lipstick was an impulse purchase (heh!)

If you haven't taken a look at the Stila Palette, I HIGHLY recommend that you do ASAP. The texture of this reminds me of the putty foundation Stlia released earlier this year that I am absolutely in love with. These hilighters give you a sheer, dewy and lit from within glow, I use the Stila multi purpose brush for that putty foundation to apply this specific product on the high points of my face. I would do some swatch pics for you, but I didn't have time yesterday to take some pics and now I'm travelling for work. I had actually posted swatches from the event on Snapchat a while back, so for those of you who haven't followed me yet -  I suggest you do as I have started to snap about PR samples I receive as well as some initial product reviews/swatches. 

The Marc Jacobs lipstick (in Roleplay), though may appear to have a slight brown tone to it, actually comes out as a mauvey pink shade - it's one of those "my lips but better" shades that you can effortlessly apply without having to find a mirror to make sure it looks perfect. This color is quite forgiving and is a perfect everyday color for me.

For those of you who attended the event, how did you find it in your local store? In addition, what were some of the items you picked up? I'd love to hear about it!

Until next time, XO - M.
