Sephora's Holiday Savings Event Is Here—These Insane Deals Just Made My Week

As someone who practically eats, sleeps, and breathes all things beauty on a 24/7 basis, one would think I'd have major fatigue when it comes to A) stocking up on beauty products for myself or B) buying gifts for my beauty-loving friends and family members. Plot twist: that couldn't be further from the truth. Since it's basically my job to know every brand and product launch like the back of my hand, I love buying and recommending the crème de la crème of what's happening in the beauty market, and, not surprisingly, Sephora is always at the epicenter of the excitement. I shop at Sephora all year round but whenever their annual Holiday Savings Event hits, my shopping fever reaches epic proportions. (Not only is it the best time to purchase and re-stock everything on my own wishlist, but it's also the most strategic time money-wise to finish every last bit of my holiday shopping!) And, hallelujah, it's finally here! 

Today, November 5, marks the official start to your soon-come flurry of beauty savings—if you're a Rouge member, that is! Here are the details: From November 5 to November 15, Rouge Beauty Insiders will get a whopping 20% off their entire shopping haul at checkout. From November 9 to November 15, VIB Beauty Insiders will get 15% off. And from November 11 to November 15, Beauty Insiders will get 10% off. Just use promo code YAYHOLIDAY at checkout, in-store, or online. Oh, and let's not forget that all Beauty Insiders can receive 30% off Sephora Collection products, no promo code needed, from November 5 to November 15. Being the beauty-obsessed human that I am, I got a head start, so I highly recommend scrolling down to see which hair, makeup, skincare, and fragrance gems have me chomping at the bit. Happy shopping!

This lip gloss from Sephora Collection is so stunning I'd buy it even if it didn't have supersonic plumping powers. All Sephora Collection products are a whopping 30% off through November 15, so I might just treat myself to every single shade since they're just $12 a pop.

If you haven't tried anything from the Australian brand Alpha-H, this epic peel boasting a trifecta of glycolic, ferulic, and lactic acids will be the best introduction. Especially, if you have a hankering for ultra-clean pores, glowing skin, and a youthful, bouncy finish to your complexion. 

I've become obsessed with mastering the art o the perfect wave, and Amika's High Tide Deep Waver has been a huge part of that. Thus, I'm super keen on the idea of gifting this smart set which also comes with the brand's texture spray and repair cream.

Not all hyped-up products are worth said hype, but Augustinus Bader's iconic face creams are all that they're cracked up to be and then some. If you've been coveting the line for a while, now's a strategic time to invest, and I highly recommend opting for this rich formula in anticipation of any winter skin scaries.

Teeming with a skin-boosting omega complex, adding a teaspoon of this delish beauty elixir to my smoothie each morning really has done amazing things for my skin. It has a zippy citrus-vanilla scent that pairs amazingly well with whatever your go-to recipe is. I've reordered and reordered and yes, I plan on reordering yet again!

Tubing mascaras will be the best PIC if you want the look of extensions or falsies without, well, extensions or falsies. This specific formula from Blinc features the brand's signature tubing magic along with an extra hit of volume-building power.

Merit is the best thing to ever happen to my five-minutes-and-out-the-door makeup routine, but if I have to play favorites, it'd be this goof-proof highlighting balm. For an ethereal, non-makeupy glow, I like to swirl my finger in it and then tap it on top of my Cupid's bow, the tip of my nose, brow bones, and cheekbones.

Products with sculpting and lifting perks are my absolute kryptonite, and this new serum debut from Clarins is a the top of my need-to-try list this season.

There is truly no better hairdryer on the market than Dyson's, and I've wanted this model for so long it's starting to get ridiculous! I'm finally going for it, and I know my future healthy strands will thank me.

I've only ever completely used up an entire bottle of perfume once in my life and it was this one from Clean Reserve. I'm clearly addicted, and I need to re-stock the intoxicating mix of ambrette seeds, pear nectar, and liquid musk as soon as physically possible.

This stuff is the absolute shit, and truth be told, it's one of the only volume-boosting products that actually delivers bounce and thickness to my fine, typically lifeless strands. It also offers essential heat protection and next-level shine.

Dermalogica makes so many amazing products, but this brightening vitamin C-spiked eye serum has become a morning staple I can't live without. In addition to brightening up dark shadows and circles, it helps address the loss of firmness and elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles, plus puffiness (thank God.)

Two things I love most in life: traveling, and getting the most bang for my buck as humanly possible. This brilliant six-piece flight kit from Dr. Barbara Sturm satisfies both. The complexion goodies are as follows: Cleanser, Anti-Pollution Drops, Face Cream Rich, Face Mask, Super Anti-Aging Serum, and last but not least the game-changing Calming Serum.

This glass skin-inducing hyaluronic acid serum from renowned plastic surgeon Lara Devgan is quite literally the best I've ever used for instantaneous and long-term results. I just hit empty on my first bottle, and can't wait to slather a fresh stash all over my face. It's a splurge, so get it while the price is slashed!

Ellis Brooklyn's clean and sustainable perfumes have really raised the bar on standards within the fragrance industry. Each and every scent is a treat with a capital T, but I'm eyeing this handy discovery set since it just so happens to contain my five all-time faves.

I love to have a natural-looking tan 365 days a year, (even better if it's a professional airbrush!), so this ingenious at-home spray tan set from Isle of Paradise is truly the product innovation of my dizziest daydreams. 

I'm sorry, but nothing will ever compare to Nars's iconic cheek colors. I love to collect the brand's limited edition palettes, so obviously, this six-pan compact is a top priority for me right now. The flattering shimmer finish is just right for the festive season and it even allows you to skip the extra step of highlighter if you so choose.

My brain pretty much exploded when I saw the latest collab between Byredo (Mojave Ghost is the GOAT) and Ouai (this leave-in conditioner is one of my all-time non-negotiables for smooth, glossy strands.) Not that you care, but I'm ordering eight while it's still available.

Zit, what zit? (Says me the morning after I use this iconic drying lotion from Mario Badescu.)

I'm obsessed with maintaining the cool, baby-blonde tone of my platinum blonde hair, so this launch from Olaplex has been major for not only keeping my fragile hair practically breakage-proof and hydrated but also expertly toned in between my color appointments, too.

Anyone who knows me will realize the weight of the following statement: this new brand new debut is my favorite Tom Ford fragrance of all time. The sheer number of compliments I received in the month I was testing it pre-launch was kind of insane, and the cozy mix of palo santo wood accord, African ebony wood accord, and rose pretty much make it the sultriest thing you can wear this season. Buy it. You will not regret It!

I can't stop ogling this new eyeshadow palette from Pat McGrath. Anyone who's tried the legendary makeup artist's formulas knows how rich, creamy, and blendable they are, and that, coupled with all of the dreamy shades and five different finishes (sateen shimmer, 24K duochrome sparkle, foiled metallic, velvet matte, and iridescent sparkle) takes this covetable collection to new heights.

It's simple—anyone who colors their hair in any capacity just needs this deeply nourishing mask in their life. The dreamy mix of camelina, coconut, and olive oils will completely transform ravaged strands and ends. Skip a spendy in-salon treatment and get this instead.
