It’s my favorite time of the year, not only because it’s almost Christmas. I’m always looking forward to all the sales around the Holidays, especially Black Friday. But Sephora already had their sales in early November. I’m a VIB so this means I get 15% off and I had to get a couple of things!
You might’ve read my Black Friday 2019 wishlist/shopping list. I love a good sale and this is a perfect time to benefit from it. Some products I had on my Black Friday list ended up in my Sephora VIB sale shopping cart and arrived way before Black Friday even happened lol. But that’s fine because I love new makeup and I love showing you my hauls.
Before I bought my products, I did a little bit of research to see which brands are doing Black Friday sales and how much of a discount they offered last year. I didn’t want to buy products with 15% off when I can get them for 20%/30% off.
I just realized this is such a typically Dutch thing to say lmao. You might know that Dutch people are often called stingy and I have to admit this is definitely true when it comes to discounted or free products lol.
Anyway, I ended up buying a couple of products and I’m sharing all the details below.
Sephora Holiday VIB Sale Products
The products I’ve bought are:
- Natasha Denona Lip Glaze in Rosy Nude – $11 (normal price is $22)
- Natasha Denona Lip Glaze in Wooden Rose – $11 (normal price is $22)
- BECCA Glow Lip Gloss in Champagne Créme – $13 (normal price is $22)

- Sephora Cleansing Wipes with Grapefruit scent – $8

Total discount: $50,72
I also got a little birthday gift, which I chose myself, from Urban Decay (a mini setting spray and mini eyeshadow single), I got a sample of the Laura Mercier setting powder, and I added a free bareMinerals mini set which I earned with my points.
I know this isn’t the most ethical choice but I promise, I’m using it until it’s fully dirty and I’m only using them for swatching makeup. These wipes are making my life so much easier, I can’t believe I just found out how nice these work for swatching. I was always struggling with taking off products from my fingers and arm with cleansers and stuff. Swatching took always pretty long and this is saving so much time for me. I’m happy I got them!
Natasha Denona Lip Glazes
I recently tried Natasha Denona products for the first time, which ended up with me being pretty much in love with the brand. When I saw that their glosses were 50% off, I just had to get two of them. I ended up buying two shades which are pretty similar, the top one is more pinkish and the bottom one has a slight peach tint to it. I haven’t tried them just yet. Would you like to see a review of these glosses? Let me know in the comments, please.
Patrick Ta Lip Products
I’ve never tried anything from this brand before but when I saw Tati (also known as GlamLifeGuru) using the lip products, I just needed to get them during the VIB sale. I’m most intrigued by the lip pencil since it’s a packaging for a lip pencil I’ve never seen before. I’m so excited to test these out! Also, is this something you would like to see? Let me know, please.
This is probably a very unnecessary purchase but I’ve been wanting this gloss since it came out. I think it was some sort of Summer Collection, where they’ve rereleased the Becca Champagne Pop highlighter and a couple of other matching products as a limited edition collection. This gloss was a part of that and I just loved the look of it. I talked myself out of buying this gloss for months but when it was discounted, I collapsed.
I’m not planning a review about this gloss, but let me know if you want me to do a review. It’s an option to combine all the lipglosses in this post and do a review/comparison between the brands, but I could also do separate posts. Again, I would love to hear what you would like to see!
NARS mini palette
Do I have enough eyeshadow palettes? Yes, I do. Did I just buy more eyeshadow palettes? Yes… yes I’m guilty. I’ve been wanting to buy some more NARS products for a while now because I love the brand but do not own a lot of products. The Sephora Holiday VIB Sale and The Newbury Girl both made me buy this palette lol. Even though this palette is mini and has some very neutral colors, I’m sooooooo in love! I haven’t tried the formula just yet but I’m so excited to play with this baby. I love me some neutral palettes!

Kat von D Por Vida Palette
I think this palette should’ve been called “Simone” because this is truly a palette with all my favorite colors. The moment I saw this, I was obsessed. I was actually planning on getting this at Sephora Paris next month but the discount made me want to get it lol. Every time I open this palette I gasp. It’s so beautiful and I can’t wait to test out the pigment. A review on this baby is coming for sure.
I’m so proud to say that I have an affiliate link with Kat von D. This means if you buy a product through my link, I’ll get a little commission at no extra costs for you. Interested in Kat von D products? Check out their site here.
Here are the samples and freebies I’ve got. I should’ve gotten a Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask sample too but I haven’t, sadly. However, I’m happy with the other products. Especially the bareMinerals set, since I’ve been dying to try their products and now I finally can!
Did you get any products this Sephora Holiday VIB sale? If not, what product I’ve bought are you most curious about?
See you next time loves,
