I'm Finally a VIB!

That's right! I'm finally a Sephora VIB! I know to some of you that's old news from years ago, and you keep your VIB status going each year, but I only recently started doing the bulk of my beauty and skin care shopping there in the past year or so. I used to purchase most of my makeup from MAC, and slowly started converting all my makeup products to Sephora not only to save money and try out new products, but to earn Beauty Insider points. MAC offered me nothing for being a loyal customer except constant free shipping promo codes. Umm.. no thanks. I get free shipping at Sephora too with any $50+ purchase and I get tons of free stuff and perks! Another win-win!

I also got this Smashbox set for FREE for achieving VIB status! 


  1. i mostly use mac as well and am slowly transitioning over to sephora. i typically use mac's studio fix powder, have you found something to replace it from sephora?

  2. I've used MAC's Studio Fix since college and that was the last makeup product that I switched over to Sephora. I just ordered a new matte finish powder foundation from Sephora to see if it'll replace the Studio Fix. It should come in sometime next week, and I'll be sure to post a review once I've worn it for a little while to see how it compares.

    So far.. I've switched my eyeliner, blush, bronzer, and highlighting powder from MAC to brands at Sephora or the Sephora Collection brand and every single item is either comparable or better!

  3. Congrats on the VIB status, I truly don't know anything about make up freebies, maybe I should visit sephora more often.

  5. Stupid question...what does VIB stand for? LOL

    You should totally do a post about your make-up must haves! I LOVE posts like that, and it helps me learn about new products that I need to try. :)

  6. Thanks for the congrats ladies!

    Erika VIB is Very Important Beauty Insider at Sephora. You have to spend a certain amount in the store or online in a calendar year and then you qualify for freebies and special events and discounts.

    Thanks for the rec on the makeup must haves, I was thinking the other day of doing a "holy grail" of my beauty products post and then making it a tab at the top of my blog. Coming soon!

  7. FINALLY! Congrats on your VIB status!

  8. I just made VIB status recently too - yay for us! :)
