SEPHORA 2017 holiday preview haul & event re-cap

The most exciting time for me at Sephora (besides the VIB Rouge Sales) would have to be the preview events - especially the Holiday ones! When I received the e-mail invite to the VIB Rouge Holiday preview event weeks ago, I immediately responded with "yes" and started saving some money especially for this sale. 

Having gone for a few years now, I know that Sephora has some incredible deals on Holiday collections, and I typically wait until the Holiday season to stock up on anything that I may need for the remainder of the year (also I use the discount sale days to do that too - the one in spring and fall). 

Regardless, I was up at 8am this morning, and headed to Vaughan Mills to see what goodies there were - I of course had to include a few pictures for you to preview ~ and if you're interested in what I purchased, just keep on reading. 

The Sephora Skin Favorites Set was sold out within 15-20 minutes from the start of the event - at $69 it was an incredible deal considering the generous product sizes of the skincare items as well as a full sized First Aid Beauty Coconut Primer as well as a Foreo Electronic Cleanser that typically retails for around $49 I want to say. The set itself is valued at $209 and you bet I was quick to grab one of these.


Another great deal worth noting is the Benefit Brownanza! Blockbuster set  housed in this adorable packaging that would look fabulous on your vanity or beauty room - it contains I believe 4-5 full sized products and a few minis for $79 - a $200 value.

For those of you who love Beauty Blenders - a set of 4 was $100 with a BB holder as well.  This is called the Blenders For All Seasons set. To me, I opted out of this one only because I liked the prior year's holder more - the one with the pink jewels on the holder? This one seemed a bit cheap to me - it looked kinda like the acrylic powder nail holders at the salon? the crystal bowl thing? 

While I am writing up this re-cap post, I just got an e-mail saying some of these items are already on sale online for rouge members - like the Tarte - Limited Edition Treasure Box Collector's Set below - $77. 

Alright, as for the actual haul - the products I bought included: The Benefit - City Lights, Party Nights set for $42 which includes deluxe sizes of They're Real Mascara, They're Real double the lip, Dandelion Twinkle and a full size of Precisely My Brow in Shade 3 (my shade!) woo!


Of course as mentioned above, I had to grab the Sephora Skin Wonderland set!


Lastly, with the purchase of $50, we were gifted the below make-up bag that is actually REALLY good quality - it's thick and durable with embossed lips on the exterior. I would definitely put this one to use! It's probably one of the best make-up bags Sephora has given out! and within the bag, housed alot of beauty samples!

Were you able to attend the Sephora event today? If not, what are you most excited about getting this year? 

Until next time, XO - M
