You may be sad that summer is flying by and cooler weather is on the horizon, but there's some good news left in this hot season. The Sephora 20% Off VIB Summer Bonus Sale has been announced, and it's time to start getting your shopping list ready and marking your calendar for the sale dates. The major beauty retailer is giving customers a chance to score a massive discount while summer is still in swing, and you don't want to miss your opportunity.

According to an administrator post in the Sephora Community forum, the Sephora VIB Summer Bonus Sale begins on Aug. 18. For VIB Rouge members, this means you've only got a few days until the coveted 20% discount is available. If you haven't reached that coveted Rouge status, though, don't worry. This sale is for you, too.

The VIB Summer Bonus Sale may begin on Aug. 18, but it extends all the way until Aug. 27. As usual, Rouge members will get the first chance to shop on the first day of the sale, but on Aug. 20, VIB members' 15% discount will go into effect. While sure, Rouge members may get extra shopping time and an extra 5% off, but 15% off for VIB members is nothing to balk about.

If you want to shop the Sephora VIB Summer Bonus Sale but are unsure where to start? Here are a few options to add to your shopping list with VIB discounts applied (Rouge members, you'll get an even better deal).
