Relax, relax, I didn’t break my No-Buy. I didn’t want my VIB discount to go to waste so I offered it to my friends and co-workers. I did end up buying 1 item for myself, but it’s within the allowance of my No-Buy, since it is a replacement item. First, I placed an order online, for the following:
Purchasing that Nars concealer for my friend was gut-wrenching for me because I really wanted to buy it for myself too! (I would need the shade “Custard” for myself). The bareMinerals mascara topcoat is to replace my Clarins Double Fix, which will make an appearance in an upcoming Trash Stash. I chose these as my samples:
I should also mention that I used ebates when I made the purchase online, and there was a 4.0% cash back offer on Sephora, so I got $3.95 cash back on my order! Next, I went to Sephora after work with a friend and she bought these:
Then the next morning, I went back to Sephora with another friend and she bought these:
The Hourglass palette is for a co-worker who requested it. So in total, SIX people (including myself) were able to benefit from the 15% off code. My Sephora account shows $300 was spent during this sale (of which $15 was spent on myself), with a total savings of $45. I just might make VIB again next year!*
Did you buy anything during the Sephora VIB sale?
*Edited: I just received an email from Sephora to advise me that I’m only $44 away from renewing my VIB status for 2015. Ha!
