If you are a beauty junkie, a product obsessive, a makeup fiend, and could veritably spend at least two months' rent during a single trip to Sephora, then today, Apr. 18, is a national holiday in your black liner-rimmed eyes. Sephora's twice-yearly VIB sale starts Apr. 18 and runs through Apr. 24. But there are some conditions, based on your personal status level as a member of Sephora's rewards program. Sephora's customer loyalty program has three tiers: Beauty Insider, VIB, and VIB Rouge. The points and perks increase depending on what status you have attained. As with most rewards programs, the more you spend through the year, the better your status.
According to Racked, the Sephora VIB sale applies for online and in-store purchases, as well as the Sephora boutiques that live in JC Penney locations.
Bustle reached out to Sephora reps to further confirm details about the twice-annual VIB sale.
UPDATE: Sephora reps confirmed via email to Bustle that the VIB sale details are correct.
Here's what to know if you plan to blow your tax refund or your slush fund on lipsticks and lotions.
If you are are top level VIB Rouge, you can shop from Apr. 18 through Apr. 24, enjoying 15 percent off with the ROUGESPRING code. These deets were posted by beauty bloggers, as well.
If you hit a local Sephora haunt with a friend on Apr. 18, you both get 15 percent off and a free tote, regardless of your co-shopper's status. The friend-and-free-tote promo is for today only.
Should you be a VIB member, you can shop from Apr. 19 through Apr. 24 with a 15 percent off discount via the VIBSPRING code. That's a sweet deal, for sure.
Those who are Beauty Insiders, which is the base level, can shop from Apr. 20 through Apr. 23. This discount is 10 percent off with the BISPRING code.
See, it really does pay to be a Sephora shopper. You can enjoy discounts at a specific amount and for a specific time based on the level you've earned.
