Why I Left MAC for Sephora

I was a loyal MAC cosmetics customer for almost 10 years, and I still love their products don't get me wrong! But a girl needs some incentives! All MAC ever did for me was give me free shipping codes all.the.time... oh and I love their "bring back to MAC" program of bringing back 6 compacts for them to recycle and they'll give you a free lipstick or eye shadow. Buuuuut... Sephora has the wonderful Beauty Insider and VIB program. Being a Beauty Insider opens up the doors to lots of rewards and offer codes all year plus a free birthday gift during your birthday month. And if you spend a certain amount at Sephora each year, you become a VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider) which opens up a lot more doors! Nevermind all the samples with each order, and the beauty insider bank. I've gotten some awesome 100 and 500 point rewards which makes me a happy VIB :)

Being a VIB, I received 20% off my entire purchase last month, and now they're gifting me $20 off my next purchase. (regular Beauty Insiders get $15 off with the same offer)

If you're a Beauty Insider and/or VIB check your email! Your reward should be in there :)


  1. agreed, I am actually an Ulta girl bc of the coupons but I do love sephora's benefits too!

  2. I love both MAC and Sephora, and have been a VIB for two years (or so...)I give Sephora a lot of credit for giving so much to shoppers but as a Canadian who has to shop online ( I don't live anywhere near a retail store) I can't benefit from any of the VIB perks. All the coupons and special incentives state that they aren't valid on Canadian online orders. I makes no sense at all and really is nothing but unfair. MAC wins for being all inclusive.

  3. LOVE! I'm only a beauty insider but I cannot wait to become a VIB!

    I just placed my order today with the $15 off $50 coupon! Plus- free 3 day shipping, the three samples AND a free bumble & bumble styling card w/ samples. I'm seriously SO excited. A few of the items are gifts but I did splurge a little on myself, too :)

    Cannot wait to get my order and try out my new stuff!

  4. i'm not a VIB (yet) but i love sephora! their brand makeup is really good too
