When Is The Next Sephora VIB Insider Sale? We Have All The 2019 Dates!

If you were one of the lucky Sephora customers to receive that 20% off coupon via email this week, congrats! Not everyone was so lucky and in fact, there were quite a few Rouge members that were snubbed–and not happy about it:

Sephora copped to the error, replying via Twitter: “We apologize for the confusion. This offer was shared with some Beauty Insiders, but not all.” Ouch!

We believe that VIB Insiders deserve access to *every* promotion that Sephora offers (Rouge members spend $1,000 per year, after all!) and therefore we rounded up all the 2019 sale dates so you don’t miss a thing:

Holiday Bonus – November

In 2017, the Holiday Bonus Insider sale started for Rouge members on Friday, November 3 with code 20FORROUGE. In 2018, the sale started on Friday, October 26 with code VIBBONUS. Based off these past sales, we can anticipate that the Holiday Bonus 2019 will occur on or around Friday, November 1.

Fall Sale – August

In 2018, the retailer had an extra VIB sale. *Faints*

The promotion started on Friday, August 24 with 20% off for VIB. Yes, you’ve died and gone to insider sale heaven.

Fall Preview – June

In 2017, the retailer held an in-store event for 90 minutes called the Fall VIB Preview where Rouge members could shop new fall products at a discount from 8:30am to 10am. It was as epic as it sounds.

Rouge members could bring a friend to the sale—and yes the lines were around the block. The sale happened on Saturday, June 3, 2017. A rep for Sephora did not respond to our request for comment on whether the sale was happening this year.

Spring Bonus Sale – April

This spring Insider Sale took place on Friday, April 26, 2019. The sale was open to Rouge members first (aka, the biggest spenders) and then opened up to Insider, or basically anyone who has given Sephora their email address. Rouge members got 20% off with code HEYROUGE from April 26-May 6. VIB members got 15% off May 2-May 6, and all Insiders got 10% off May 2-May 6.

What Deals To Expect

The deals at Insider sales are not to be missed. Some highlights from past years include: a Too Faced Glitter Bomb shadow palette for $45; Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palette for $33.60, down from $42; Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Serum; L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil; NARS Radiant Longwear Foundation.
