Treat Yourself: 18 Beauty Splurges We Support at Sephora (Because They’re Finally On Sale)

Listen, I love the holiday season as much as the next gal, but walking headfirst into the busiest weeks of the year is enough to make me need a weekend-long nap to prepare myself. Along with my nap, I’m finally giving myself some attention for once and adding a few gifts for me to my wish list. Splurging on myself doesn’t always come naturally to me, but with the annual Sephora sale going on, I don’t have to fret because they’re the best beauty deals of the year. 

And in honor of Sephora’s annual Savings Event, we gathered all the best “treat yourself” items in one place. Rouge members get 20% off from Nov. 5 to Nov. 15, VIBs get 15% off from Nov. 9 to Nov. 15, and all Beauty Insiders can shop with 10% off from Nov. 11 to Nov. 15 using the code YAYHOLIDAY in store and online. 

If you’re looking to buy yourself a gift this holiday season, we swear you won’t be disappointed in these. 

Tata Harper

Regenerating Cleanser

A silky, hydrating cleanser that also exfoliates? Sign us up. This one from Tata Harper feels so luxe when you’re using it, you’ll actually be excited to do your skincare every night (even after a night out).

NuFACE

Trinity Facial Toning Device

We love the NuFACE Mini for beginners who want to microcurrent without spending tons of money (even our beauty editor uses it!), but when you’re willing to splurge on yourself, the original Trinity device is it. You can also purchase attachments to target your microcurrent to your eyes and the fine lines on the face.

Biossance

Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil

Our editor has been splurging on this vitamin C oil for years because it brightens and reduces texture while keeping her skin super moisturized, even in the dry Chicago winters.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare

Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel

These small-but-mighty peel pads are as good as getting a facial—yeah, I said it. The two-step peel system means it leaves little-to-no irritation or redness. We love the extra-strength version, but if your skin is sensitive, try the universal.

Shani Darden Skin Care

Retinol Reform

Shani Darden’s magical take on retinol is so good, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. She found a way to make retinol even more effective (thanks to lactic acid) without any of the harsh side effects you’d typically get with retinol. See what I said? Magic.

Augustinus Bader

The Cream with TFC8® Face Moisturizer

Our writer tried Augustinus Bader’s The Cream for 27 days, and every “life-changing” and “magic” claim is true. This splurgey moisturizer (available in a smaller size so you can try the product for a few weeks without dropping all that cash) is a must-have in dozens of celebrity routines, so it’s high time to see what all the buzz is about.

Grande Cosmetics

Groovy Goddess Lash and Brow Serum Set

After using GrandeLash for six months, our editor had a before-and-after you honestly had to see to believe. Get in on all the action yourself with this set that contains a full-size of the lash serum, a travel-size brow serum, and a mini lash serum for on-the-go—all for the price of the lash serum!.

Fashion Fair

SkinFlex Stick Foundation

Fashion Fair was recently reimagined and relaunched in Sephora after being a mainstay for Black women in the ’80s and ’90s. This stick foundation is creamy and smooth, giving a beautiful natural finish on the skin. But the real reason women love it? The shade range for Black and Brown women is impeccable, with 16 shades from medium to deep dark in tons of different undertones. “I’ve never experienced a closer match,” one reviewer said.

Armani Beauty

Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation

Have you ever been in love? Would you like me to describe it to you? This creamy, smoothing foundation makes you look like you just stepped out into the sunshine after a red carpet facial. I already have this in my wedding day makeup bag (and I’m perpetually single).

Rose Inc

Blush Divine Clean Dewy Cream Blush

This blush (which our editor has been using mostly on her lips and cheeks) is a dream for the fall and winter, offering deep, spicy hues that blend right into skin. Plus, the refillable packaging makes it easy to try new shades without owning a bunch of different compacts.

Benefit Cosmetics

They’re Real! Magnet Extreme Lengthening Mascara

We wouldn’t normally recommend a mascara splurge when drugstore mascaras are so good, but this is one that’s totally worth it. This mascara truly makes it look like you’re wearing false lashes. The lashes look fluffy, long, and weighted—everything I look for in a false lash. I have to force myself to use something else every day since I tried this, and I’ve convinced just about everyone I know to pick this up.

Gucci

Rouge à Lèvres Mat Matte Lipstick

Pulling out a luxurious Gucci-labeled red lipstick on a night out is main character energy if I’ve ever seen it. This one has a matte finish that’s not drying, so it stays put all day long (but you’ll probably want to reapply, just to show it off).

Dyson

Airwrap Complete Styler Limited Edition Set

You can count on this to sell out during every VIB sale, so if you get the opportunity to get your hands on it, we’re not telling you to do it (but do it). This tool has a cult-following because it basically does it all: dries, straightens, and curls, thanks to the various attachments it comes with. If you want to whittle down your hair tool drawer to just one product, this should be it.

Gisou

Honey Infused Hair Oil

We predict this hair oil will make its way onto many holiday wish lists this year, so feel free to stock up for friends and family. It adds smoothness and shine, and the best part? It makes your hair smell like glorious, sweet honey.

Dyson

Supersonic Hair Dryer

Before the famed Airwrap hit the market, the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer was the buzzy beauty product every who’s-who of the world had and everyone else wanted their hands on. Regardless of hair type, everyone can benefit from this iconic dryer that dries hair faster with less damage.

Olaplex

No. 3 Hair Perfector

Whether you’re an Olaplex pundit or ready to finally dip your toes into their magical waters, the original No. 3 treatment is available in the original 3.3 oz packaging or, our favorite, the 8.5 oz. value size for less than double the price. When stacked with your VIB discount, you’ll think it’s Black Friday.

Slip

Slip Dream Team Gift Set

For years, I only ever let myself dream about a Slip pillowcase, but once I tried one, I knew I’d never go back. The back of my hair has little-to-no damage where it used to be broken and knotty, and my hair gets less greasy through the night. This set contains a pillowcase, one scrunchie, and a travel bag (because you’ll never want to be without it).

NEST

Birchwood Pine Candle

There’s no better time to splurge on a sexy, fancy candle than in the cold months when it gets dark at 5 p.m. This one from Nest (a favorite amongst our team for long burn times, even burns, and a magnificent throw—seriously, this makes my entire apartment smell good) smells like a Christmas tree farm, which I’ll love from now through January.
