My Picks for Sephora's VIB Event

Yay it's Sephora's VIB Event sale time and i thought it'd be fun to create a post highlighting some of my picks! I mean, it's always nice to have a tried and loved product recommendation don't you think? These are all products I've hauled and loved.  My hope is that this post can help you decide on some products you may want to add to your vanity... so lets get right to it shall we?


I'm quite a fan of Dr. Dennis Gross.  I have yet to try a product of his that i don't love!  About a month ago, i picked up the Ferulic Retinol Fortifying Neck Emulsion because as many of you know, i had gastric sleeve surgery and the weight is literally flying off of my body.  That paired with my age, i knew i needed to pull out the big guns for a neck cream.  This product has been wonderful.  I think the skin around my neck is looking quite good thus far.

Another product i adore from Dr. Dennis Gross is the Alpha Beta Peel!  These are so easy to use and because they're individually packed, they're also super travel friendly! My skin looks and feels amazing when i use these.  Sephora carries a travel size version of these which is a wonderful option to test on your skin before deciding if you want to fully commit.

I'm obsessed with masks.  One in particular that I'm loving is GlamGlow's GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment. I find this mask to be super innovative!  You simply paint the mask on (paint brush included), when the mask turns from white to a chrome you simply peel it off!  My skin looks glowy and radiant when i remove this mask.


I have a scheduled post on my Burberry Beauty Haul but wanted to highlight just how GORGEOUS this palette is!  Yes, it's a bit pricey but the shades are so beautiful and wearable that i find myself reaching for it often.  Plus, with the VIB 15% off, it's worth the splurge... promise!

You know i absolutely adore a product when i purchase it over and over again!  This Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation Stick is so easy to use and provides awesome coverage. It's so user friendly, mess free and works wonders to ever all my trouble spots!  I think everybody needs to try it!

Speaking of foundation, this Marc Jacobs brush was the best brush investment ever!  It's perfection when it comes to foundation application!  Honestly, it's one of my most reached for foundation brushes!

The Touch in Sol Paper Pusher Stretch Fiber Mascara is easily one of my favorite formulas for fiber mascara.  Now this is not a 'quick application' type mascara.  You have to really work it on your lashes to ensure the fibers are properly placed but let me tell you.... it will lengthen your lashes a million percent!  Who needs false lashes when you have this beauty!

Seriously why didn't i try Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit sooner?  This palette slays people.... it will have you glowing for miles!  I have not put it down and let me tell you, it's gonna be my BFF this summer!

If you want in on the 'color correcting trend' this Tarte Rainforest of the Seas color correcting palette is great.  I have a post detailing how to use it coming soon!  It really doesn't hurt that the packaging is sooooo cute!

Kat Von D's eye shadows are amazing!  They are pigmented, long lasting and blend like a dream.  When she released the Shade + Light Eye Contour Quads, i immediately ordered one in Rust.  The colors are so me!  This palette is so travel friendly and wears like a dream.

OK anyone else obsessed with Tom Ford's Summer Collection?  It's limited edition and the white packaging is everything!  Admittedly, i ordered the contour palette AKA The Afternooner before the VIB sale for fear of it selling out but let me just tell you that while yes, it's ridiculously expensive, it's sooooooo gorgeous!  Oh my gosh, the blush is beautiful and blends like a dream.  The bronzer is stunning, in fact, i purchased the bronzer last year and it's been one of my absolute favorites.  The highlight will add a soft glow to complete the look.  I'm seriously obsessed!  I also ordered two lipsticks from the collection... on in Paradiso an done in Revolve Around Me.  I have a serious addiction right now!  Help!

I could seriously go on and on for hours but let's just end it right here. I think I've given you some great options to consider!  Which ones are your faves?  I wanna know what you picked up during the Sephora VIB 15% off event?  Do share!  BTW be sure to enter code ROUGENOTE to take advantage of this special deal!

PS... be sure to enter my IT COSMETICS BEAUTY BUNDLE GIVEAWAY!  It's open internationally!

Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla
