Loving This Week: The Best of Sephora Sale on Sale

Monday, December 29, 2014

Sephora Eyeshadow - bareMinerals Makeup Collection - Stila Lip Glaze Set - Sephora Favorites Summer Crushes - Josie Maran Argan Oil Collection

It’s so rare to find high-end beauty products marked down. Think about it: when was the last time you found your favorite Dior mascara marked half-off, or a two-for-one deal on PerriconeMD sunscreen? See what I mean?

That’s what makes Sephora’s annual after-Christmas Sale on Sale so much fun. It’s a rare chance to score top shelf beauty items for a fraction of their regular price. So, in honor of this exceptional sale, I’m devoting this week’s post to what I’m loving from the Sale on Sale section. Each item here is not only marked down, but it’s an additional 20% off with coupon code EXTRA20 through Thursday, January 1.

Here’s what’s in my Sephora-devoted online shopping cart this week…

1. Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Palette, $8.80 after coupon (was $24.00)
This 5-color eyeshadow palette is available in 7 different combinations, ranging from neutral to standout. My favorite, a mix of everyday greens and a pretty pink, is pictured here. If you are in need or want of new shadow colors for the New Year there is zero reason to pass up this deal.

2. bareMinerals By Popular Demand 6-Piece Collection, $24.00 after coupon (was $39.00)
Knowing how popular bareMinerals products are, I suspect this kit will be one of the first sale items to sell out. It features a selection of products for the face, eyes, and lips: Brightening Pearl Mineral Veil finishing powder, Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in Mixologist and Cognac, Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner in 9pm, Ready Blush in Aphrodisiac, Marvelous Moxie lip gloss in Spark Plug, and a double-ended eye and face brush.

3. Stila Putting on the Glitz Lip Glaze Set, $28.00 after coupon ($92.00 value)
Stila’s annual lip glaze sets are always a fantastic deal. This particular set, worth $92.00, was originally priced at $42.00. The addition of both a markdown and a coupon code make it a complete steal. The offered colors, with perhaps the exception of the dark berry, strike me as very wearable for all skintones.

4. Sephora Favorites Summer Crushes Set, $24.00 after coupon ($120.00 value)
This Sephora Favorites kit is my favorite of the markdowns thanks to the roster of must-have products included. My all-time favorite Jack Black lip balm is accompanied by Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, Supergoop Sunscreen, Living Proof Restore Mask, and a bunch of other high-end products. Sure, it’s summer-oriented, but the handful of items you truly won’t use until summer will keep just fine.

5. Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Color Collection, $22.40 after coupon ($69.00 value)
I’m a new-ish Josie Maran fan. This line’s argan oil-infused items are super moisturizing, particularly the lip products. Plus, the oil makes an amazing cuticle treatment. This budget-priced sampler includes mascara, lip and cheek oil, eyeshadow, illuminizer, and pure argan oil. All things that will get plenty of use during the last few cold, dry winter months.
