Sephora sales only happen a few times a year, and the last one is finally here: the 2021 Holiday Savings Event. The event is basically the beauty retailer’s Black Friday sale, and it just opened up to Sephora Rewards members with Red status (i.e. those who spent $ 1,000 or more at store over the past year) this morning. If you are one of those members, you can buy the entire Sephora site at 20% off with the code VACATION.
If you’re not a Rouge Rewards member, don’t worry. Buyers with VIB status (those who spent between $ 350 and $ 1,000 in the past year) and Insider status (all other members) will be able to start purchasing the Sephora sale on November 9 and 11 respectively . The Holiday Savings Event will run until November 15, but we recommend that you use your site-wide discount as soon as you can, as hot-priced items like the Dyson Airwrap and holiday gift boxes usually sell out in the early days of the sale. Below, find 15 top-selling items to fill your cart.

Formulated with 1% vegan retinol, vitamin F and a blend of three peptides, Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream visibly firms and strengthens the skin, eliminating the signs of aging. “The results are almost instantaneous,” comments one woman.

Apply this skincare / makeup hybrid and you will end up with an even and fresh complexion. The shade contains a blend of niacinamide, squalane, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate, smooth, and plump your skin while you’re wearing it.

Many reviewers say this is their holy grail lip product because it is effective, hydrating, and subtle enough to wear on a daily basis.
