10 Products You Need From the Sephora Savings Event

2023 sephora savings event

It’s here! The spring Sephora Savings Event is one of my favorite times to stock up on all of my beauty essentials. Sephora very rarely offers discounts, and it’s even rarer for them to discount popular brands like Oribe and Giorgio Armani.

I get a lot of questions about the sale every time it happens so I thought it might be helpful for me to put together a post with some more info. Since it’s a tiered sale, it can totally get confusing. But I’ll try to break it down so it’s a bit easier to understand!


Sephora Savings Event

What is the sephora savings event?

Twice a year, Sephora has a tiered sale for its beauty insiders (once in the spring and once in the fall). The first 4 days are reserved exclusively for Rouge members, then VIBs and Insiders (more on who qualifies for which tier below) can shop the sale for the next 6 days. The Sephora Collection is discounted for the entire 10 days of the sale.

who can shop the sale?

2023 sephora savings event

+ Rouge members can enjoy 20% off starting April 14. A Rouge member is anyone who is signed up to be an Insider member and who spends $1,000 per year at Sephora.

+ VIB members get 15% off starting April 18. A VIB member is an Insider who spends $350 per year at Sephora.

+ Insiders get 10% off beginning April 18 — no previous purchase is required. You can sign up here to become an Insider.

does sephora do 20% off regularly?

Sephora has two Sephora Saving Events throughout the year: one in the spring and one in the fall. If you’re a Rouge member, you can get 20% off during those sales. For the last few years, they’ve also offered an event in December for all Insiders (regardless of tier).

is it worth it to become a sephora insider?

This kind of depends on how much you shop for beauty products. For me, it’s totally worth it. I place an order at Sephora at least once a month for new products that I want to try and share with y’all. It’s pretty easy for me to get points, then I use the savings events to get my favorite things on sale. There’s really not much to lose from becoming a rewards member IMO!

what’s on sale during the sephora savings event?

The short answer is everything. There are some exclusions (you can see those here), but anything I’ve ever wanted to shop for during the sale has always been discounted, so it’s really not hard to find the things you want at a discounted price!

This year, I’m focusing on re-stocking several of my favorite items. Below is a look at exactly what I’m shopping during the spring Sephora sale.


Texturing Spray

There’s a reason this stuff is so popular. It’s truly AMAZING. It can take my worst hair days and make my hair look 10x better. This is a must if you’re looking to try new products during the Sephora Savings Event.

Living Proof

Dry Shampoo

I’ve used this dry shampoo for so long that I can’t even remember when I first started. It’s basically the only one I’ll buy. It smells *amazing* and works great. I can easily go 3-4 days without washing my hair when I use this!

St. Tropez

Self Tan Water Face Mist

I love using this face mist, especially in the summer. It gives you the MOST subtle golden glow on your face and has no bad smell. Pro tip: It develops over like 4 hours, so less is more when you apply!

Charlotte Tilbury

Pillow Talk Lipstick

Favorite. Lipstick. Ever. If I could only wear one lipstick for the rest of my life, it would be this. It’s super natural looking and perfect for every day. The color is so pretty too!


Super-Enhancing Mascara Primer

Y’all have seen me use this a lot. This is what I use under my Thrive Lash Extension mascara. You can see my full mascara-applying process here.


Unseen Sunscreen

There’s a reason this sunscreen is so popular. It’s the best. Period. It goes on clear (vs goopy white sunscreen) so you can’t even tell you’re wearing anything. If you don’t have an SPF in your skincare routine, you *need* to add this to your cart asap!

IT Cosmetics

Waterproof Concealer

I’ve never appreciated concealer quite like I do after becoming a mom. Nothing takes away my under-eye circles like this stuff. It lasts all day long too, so I never have to touch back up throughout the day. 10/10 recommend for moms or anyone with under-eye circles!

Charlotte Tilbury

Finish Setting Powder

After I put on my foundation and concealer, this finish setting powder is a must. It helps to blur any imperfections and keeps the shine away so I never feel oily. It’s way less intense than other powders I’ve used — it leaves my skin with a subtle finish.

Armani Beauty

Oil-Free Foundation

I’ve been using this foundation for years now. Even when I try something new, I always find myself coming back to this. It leaves my skin glowing and isn’t cakey whatsoever. It gives me the perfect natural makeup look.


Lip Sleeping Mask

I swear nothing makes my lips feel softer than this mask. It’s made with shea butter and can take my lips from super dry to moisturized overnight. I keep it by my bed and put it on every night before I go to sleep.
