Is being a Sephora VIB Rouge member worth it?

Stop what your doin’ cause I’m about to ruin…

VIB_rouge

In my opinion being a rouge member is not worth going out of your way to spend $1000.

Here is what you get for being a member and why I did not benefit from much of it.

Attend free rouge events- I don’t hang out with strangers. In fact, I’m an introvert. I get anxious around people I do not know and I definitely won’t talk to anyone just for the hell of it. Not for me, nope.

Get free stuff- I never got anything “free”. All of the free offers were coupon codes for product or samples that you could redeem during checkout. Meaning you have to buy something to get something for free. I’m not going to buy something just so I can grab a free sample or a lipstick in a shade I won’t even wear. I’ve collected way to many totes from them. Stahp!

Free Shipping- They already give you free shipping if you spend over $50. I’ve never in my life placed an order for anything less than $50 on Sephora’s website. Who even does that?

Unlimited access to the beauty studio- I’m a rouge member cause I got mad skillz and hoard makeup. I’m pretty confident I can do my own makeup better than any person working at a Sephora. No beauty studio needed here.

Private concierge- If you are spending that much money you probably already know so much about product and how to use it. I can see how this is helpful to some who need to find the right skincare or foundation for their skin type. But I do believe you can figure all that out on your own. I’m a resourceful person and I like to get it done on my own. 🙂

Additional perk- Early access to sales and such. This is cool, however I never took advantage of getting a day earlier to shop. Truthfully, I don’t feel like I missed out rather I lucked out. The day the rouge sale went live for VIB members was 11/5 from 7-9 in stores and I think online..Anyway I missed it and shopped online today 11/6. Ebates had an 8% cash back offer + the 20% off VIB code so that means I am saving 28% on my order in total. Sign up for ebates!!!

Please understand I LOVE SEPHORA! I have dreams that I’m shopping there with an unlimited bank account and I can take whatever I want for free. I’m not kidding. Being in a Sephora is close to heaven for me. They need to let us start having sleepovers with our friends there as events. Then I would go!

My loves, I don’t mean to come off as negative. I’m just expressing my disappointment in this program. I may or may not qualify for rouge again. I can tell you that I won’t go out of my way to keep the status. If it happens it happens.

Please do share you experience with me. Did you love being a rouge member?

October 2013 IPSY Glam Bag Review

Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art. I love the cute quote on my IPSY bag this month. I really do appreciate when they put effort into the little details of the glam bags.

I really do appreciate receiving makeup brushes in my bag. So far no complaints on any brushes that came through IPSY. I was in desperate need of a flat shadow brush. I had lost mine a while back and was being lazy to order one. This one is from Coastal Scents.

This gorgeous loose mineral shadow is by a brand called bella terra.  I’m not a fan of loose pigment no I’m not sure If I’ll keep this around.

I love big hair I think it’s so sexy. Very excited to try this blow dry volumizing gel by sexyhair.

These wipes may disappoint like the makeup up remover by LA Fresh but they sure come in handy while traveling.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Haul plus a Sephora 10% off coupon code!

I drove to two different Sephora locations today looking for the new Marc Jacobs line. The Sephora inside JCP did not have anything so I drove to another stand alone store. My intent was to browse the product, test, swatch and write down what I wanted to haul. I try not to shop at Sephora stores but rather on their dot com. There is always some coupon code or free sample code to use and today I was able to get 8% cash back from ebates PLUS there is a VIB 10% code going on right now. I placed my order online and got 18% off. Woo hoo!

My haul should arrive by Thursday next week so I will be doing a product review of each item. Get excited.
