Here are some of the best holiday gift sets to grab while they’re still available!
The Sephora Holiday Savings Event aka the “Fall VIB sale” is easily my favorite sale of the year (with a close second being the Sephora Spring VIB Sale, which is usually in April). I always shop Sephora’s VIB sales. I literally mark my calendar as soon as I know the dates because the discounts are that good.
2021 Sephora Fall VIB Sale
The Fall Sephora VIB Event is the time to both save and splurge.
- stock up on my holy grail products that I know I will repurchase
- try out any luxury price point products I’ve been curious about
- invest in any high-end beauty tools (Dyson, I’m looking at you)
- and get my hands on the new holiday product releases and gift sets (This is the time to do some holiday shopping!)
Who gets the sale?
The VIB sales are for those who are signed up for Sephora’s Beauty Insider rewards program. It’s free to become an Insider—click here to join. There are three levels: Insider, VIB (spend $350/ year), and Rouge (spend $1000/ year).

Yes, the code to use is YAYHOLIDAY (And you can use it as many times as you like during the promotional period!).
Do I need to go in-store for the sale?
The sale is both in-store and online. (Hot tip: There are some incredible brands and products that are “online only” so make sure to stalk the site. It’s also great to see which products are labeled as “limited time” so you can make sure not to miss out on anything you might want.)
Are there any minimum purchases or exclusions?
There are no minimum purchase required. As far as exclusions go, there really aren’t many. You can check out the fine print here for details.
Let’s get into the products…
Read on for the inside scoop on my holy grails I always restock, what I’m excited to try out, and deals you won’t want to miss out on.
What I’m Repurchasing
My Favorite Skincare
Two other holy grail status products I’ll be rebuying are the Lord Jones Royal Oil 1000mg Pure CBD Oil and the belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This CBD oil has been working wonders for my skin. I have sensitive AND oily skin and this calms it down, hydrates, and doesn’t break me out. It also layers well under any products I use after (and it also works for dry skin—one of my team members swears by it!). As far as eye creams go, I feel like I’ve tried everything and I keep coming back to this one. I have dry undereyes and I hate when concealer and makeup crease, and this cream makes that a non-issue.
Makeup I Love
As far as primers go, Tatcha’s The Liquid Silk Canvas is my holy grail primer. While this is worth paying full price for, I always make sure to grab it during this sale.
Ok, so this is the holy grail of holy grail’s as far as my go-to foundation. I’ll wear it day-to-day and it’s my favorite for any event, in-person or on camera. I keep Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation on hand in multiple shades so no matter how tan I am at a given point or what season it is, I’m set.
And if I’m feeling like a no-makeup makeup day, my favorite is the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 from Nars. It gives more coverage than most tinted moisturizer and has a good amount of SPF.
If you’re in the market for eyeshadow palettes that are worth the splurge, I have two for you.
I love neutral palettes—they are incredibly versatile and these are 100% a makeup collection staple.
Viseart’s Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Neutral Matte this is easily the best matte palette I’ve ever owned (and it might just be my favorite palette of all time). It’s a professional eyeshadow palette that blends beautifully and I can take anywhere because it’s small and travel friendly. (Hot tip: You can also use it as a brow powder and to highlight and contour).
The Natasha Denona Biba Palette has 15 shades including neutral, warm, and cool tones, from light to dark, in different textures from Natasha Denona’s signature formulas. This eyeshadow palette is very user-friendly and the pans are bigger than the average palette. You definitely get what you pay for, and since this palette is normally $129, the Sephora Holiday Savings Event is the time to grab it at a discounted price!
On My Wishlist
Here are the products I’m going to be buying and trying, and deals I’m not going to miss (and you shouldn’t either!).
I’ve been really into face oils recently and I’ve wanted to try out Marianna Hewitt’s line, Summer Friday, so here’s my chance to test it out the Heavenly Sixteen All-In-One Face Oil!
I am also incredibly excited to receive this limited-time Charlotte Tilbury Super Nudes Nudegasm Bronze, Sculpt & Glow Face Palette that’s only available at Sephora. I’ve hit pan on previous face palettes and I’m always bummed when I can’t get them again so I make sure to grab them every year.
Another hot product that Sephora can’t keep is stock is Patrick Ta’s Major Headlines Blush Palette. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on it during the sale.
Gift Sets to Grab
Sol de Janeiro’s limited-edition Galaxy Gorgeous Set includes a full-size Bum Bum cream, a scrub, a mist, and a shower gel all in the iconic scent of Cheirosa ‘62.
Another influencer line I’ve been interested in trying is Negin Mirsalehi’s honey-infused hair care brand, Gisou. I’ll be grabbing the Honey Infused Haircare Set, because when it comes to higher-end products like this one, I love trying them out in gift sets before investing in the full-size versions.
This Olaplex set is a STEAL! I LOVE Olaplex hair products, and every product in this set is a holy grail. This is a no-brainer buy for me!
And if you’re buying gifts (for others or yourself!), below are some other great deals and gift sets I have my eye on!
And last but not least…
Now I want to know…
