Everything in the world may feel a little different right now, but one of our favorite happenings has not been canceled: The Sephora Beauty Insider Sale. The Olympics, movie releases, and eating out at restaurants may be on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we can all still shop and save on our favorite hair, makeup, and skin care products—online, of course, since Sephora retail stores remain closed indefinitely.
The brand’s beloved Beauty Insider Savings Event begins on Friday, April 17 and runs through May 1—so if you’re not already a VIP member, now’s the time to sign up. Plus, it’s totally free to join.
However, there are different levels of access to the products on sale. Basically, it works like this: For Rouge members (anyone who’s spent $1,000 or more in a calendar year), savings of 20% off of their entire purchase will be valid from April 17 to May 1. For VIB members (shoppers who spent at least $350 last year), the sale will run from Tuesday, April 21 through Wednesday, April 29, and includes 15% off all orders. And for Insiders (anyone who signs up for the retailer’s loyalty program), the savings run from Thursday, April 23 through Monday, April 27, with an offer of 10% off all purchases. But the code to enter at checkout is the same for everyone: SPRINGSAVE.
Now that you’re all signed up and ready to go for the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale, it’s time to start making your shopping list—a great way to add some beauty joy into your quarantine life. Practically everything is eligible for discounts with the small exception of products from The Ordinary and MAC’s Viva Glam line. Even Dyson’s new straightener is up for grabs! (Just note you can only get one Dyson item per transaction though.) Here are some of our Sephora favorites (by category) to help with such a daunting task.
