The Fashion Magpie Beauty Sephora Sale

Sephora Sale.

The final day of Sephora’s 2019 beauty sale is today — I’ve been meaning to write about this but it kept slipping my mind! VIBRouge get 20% off with code HEYROUGE; VIBs get 15% off with code HEYVIB; and insiders get 10% off with code HEYINSIDER. I always use this promotion to stock up on all my favorite products and to test out a handful of new ones, too, since beauty products so rarely go on sale. This go around, I re-upped on my new favorite gel facial cream from Korean skincare line Belif (I’ve been using it in lieu of La Mer the last few months and absolutely LOVE the way it glides on and hydrates my skin — plus, you can’t beat the price), bought a couple tubes of my favorite mascara, and stocked up on my favorite facial cotton. I am also testing a new shampoo and conditioner duo (I have not been disappointed by any of the Ouai products I’ve tested thus far and I love their scent) and I finally snagged a tube of Summer Friday’s wildly popular Jet Lag mask.

Mr. Magpie also asked me to pick up some of his favorite products: Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Face Wash, Kiehl’s moisturizer, and Jack Black’s Post-Shave Gel. The only other fancy cosmetic product he can’t live without? Molton Brown body wash. (Related: A few months ago, I told him we couldn’t use loofahs anymore because they are supposedly breeding grounds for bacteria, and we started using these silicon loofah brushes. Mr. Magpie hates them because the body wash does not scrub up enough for his liking, but at least we’re not defeating the purpose of bathing to begin with anymore — ha! I like the loofah brush because it feels really nice against your skin!)

P.S. The best beauty buys under $50 and some lovely new finds for your bathroom and cosmetics cabinet.

  1. I bought a silicone type mit after seeing a post last year when you tried them. Do you find you still need to exfoliate your body with something else? I like them, but the one I have almost leaves me feeling dry or patchy. Now with self tanner season coming on, I need something to prep with!

    1. Hi Tina! Hmm — I don’t feel dry or patchy afterward, but then again I am religious about using almond oil immediately after I shower, so maybe I cancel out its effects?! Maybe try the oil. I find its the only thing that prevents dry skin!

  2. OMG — had not even CONSIDERED the bacteria factor re: loofahs. Ick, ick, ick. Such a good tip re: the silicone brush!

    1. Yes – disgusting!! But you definitely don’t get the sudsiness…a tradeoff. xx

  3. Last week, I selfishly hoped you’d post a Sephora round-up before having your baby, ha! I ended up going to the store on Saturday, even though I didn’t really need anything. I just hate to pass up the sale opportunity! I hope you like the Jet Lag mask! I finally used up all of mine but need to go through some other products before replacing it. xo

    1. Haha! I know – I’m a little behind in sharing this, but had to get it in under the wire. I like that you can use the Sephora code as often as you’d like during the promotion. I placed several separate orders 🙂
