Oh dear… why must the Sephora VIB Holiday Event start a few days before IMATS Toronto weekend? So dangerous.
As a VIB member of Sephora’s Beauty Insider rewards program, I received an e-mail a few days ago letting me know that the 2013 VIB Holiday Shopping Event will take place from November 7 – November 11. As long as you have VIB status, you are able to shop at Sephora and enjoy 20% off all purchases made in-store and online [promo code: VIBTOPIA] during this event. Also, you can take home your goodies in a free tote bag [while supplies last]! On top of that, you can also bring in a friend to share your discount with. Isn’t that nice?
I was also able to finally pick up a VIB card since I didn’t end up receiving one before for some reason. With the card comes a 10% off one-time use coupon [in-store use only for Canadian members] and also a 45 minute makeup session with one of Sephora’s Beauty Advisors. Thanks Sephora!
Since IMATS Toronto is taking place this weekend, I tried my very best to resist purchasing anything that I may find at IMATS for a better price. If anything, the Sephora event lasts until Monday so there’s plenty of time to go back. The only thing I got was a bottle of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb EDP. It’s a sweet, flowery fragrance that has a soft to medium sillage and has pretty good longevity. It’s a bit on the pricier side of the fragrance spectrum so I’m glad that I was able to get it discounted. Maybe I’ll do a more in-depth review of the fragrance or do some sort of perfume collection post in the future…
If you’ve bought anything from the VIB event or are planning to go to the IMATS Toronto show this weekend, let me know!
