Sephora Holiday Sale: What’s Actually Worth Buying

November 10, 2021

If you’re a makeup or skincare fan you probably know that the annual holiday savings event at Sephora, aka. the Sephora Holiday Sale is on now. Personally I think the hype around this sale can be excessive, however, I do think there are a few gems and holy grail products worth getting during the sale. Today then I wanted to share with you what I think is actually worth buying during the Sephora holiday sale, as well as sharing which items I’m buying myself.

Before I get into the items, a quick run down on the sale: As of now it’s open to VIB members (which I am and I think from a poll on instagram that many of you are as well). For VIB’s from now until November 15th you get 15% off everything you order, and 30% of Sephora collection products.

If you’re not VIB, the next tier is Insider. You can become an insider just by signing up with your email (so do that if you haven’t yet!) Insider status can shop the sale as of November 11th and it gets you 10% off everything you purchase, and 30% off Sephora collection items.

Whatever status you are just use code YAYHOLIDAY to get the discount.

What to Actually Buy From the Sephora Holiday Sale:

1. For women with long hair: The Bio Ionic Long Barrel Curling Iron

This curling iron is a must have for anyone that likes to curl their long hair. It makes such a difference having this long barrel. I borrowed this from a friend recently and was amazed. I just ordered this as part of the Sephora holiday sale!

2. For women with want bouncy curls that last: The T3 Tapered Ceramic Styling Wand

For anyone with shoulder length or shorter hair, this curling wand is amazing! I used this for years and if my hair wasn’t so long I still would be! The curls are gorgeous and it doesn’t damage your hair the way many curling irons / curling wands do. 10/10 recommend.

Shop these Curling Irons:

3. Aquis Hair Turban:

I just ordered this and can’t wait to try it. So many people have recommend this – apparently it cuts down your hair drying time and, unlike traditional towels, doesn’t leave your hair frizzy. It actually combats frizz. It comes in a few colors (I got the pink, of course haha). This would also make a great  Christmas gift / stocking stuffer!

4.  Sephora Collection Makeup Brushes:

These brushes are the BOMB. I’ve tried a lot of makeup brushes over the years, some double in price to these, and I keep coming back to these. They are great quality and a reasonable price. You can buy individual ones that you may need to fill out your collection or you can get a set. This eye makeup brush set is a $109 value for only $39! This would also make a great Christmas gift!

5. Olaplex Hair Care Products:

I’ve sung Olaplex’s praises before. If you get one thing from the Sephora holiday sale, this is what you should get. The difference Olaplex makes to your hair is unreal. I use the shampoo and conditioner regularly and the bonding oil and the number 3 hair perfector once every week or two. You can buy any of these products individually (I’d recommend the #3 to start) or you can buy this holiday kit. Again, this would also make a great Christmas gift!

6. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Kit:

This is one of the world’s most popular lipstick’s for a reason. Pillow talk is a gorgeous slightly dark nude shade and the formula is so creamy. This mini kit comes with the matching liner. I use this set as my everyday lip color. Again, this would also make a great gift!  You can also get the set that comes with a gloss and lip plumper – I bought that in the summer and love it!

7. NARS Tinted Lip Balm:

This mini duo is a must-have in my opinion. I bought one in the summer and just ordered two more. They’re a great price so I love stocking up and having one in all of my coat pockets. The formula moisturizes but just adds a hint of color. This would make a great stocking stuffer!

8. Biossance Squalene & Omega Repair Cream:

Last but not least this moisturizer! I’ve been doing research on clean beauty lately and trying to really pay attention to what I put on my skin. This moisturizer is a fan favorite and full of natural moisturizing ingredients.

Happy shopping! Hope you get some stuff you love and stock up on a few Christmas gifts while you’re at it!
