The Sephora Friends and Family Employee discount started on Oct 16-29, the promo code was valid for 20% off your total purchase. I was lucky enough to receive a code from a Sephora employee to use towards my purchase. Each code is unique and can only be used once. Sephora will be extending the discount to BI, VIB and Rouge members before the year end, so if you did not get to take advantage of the first offer then you can try again.
Anyhow I managed to get some items for myself that I have been considering to purchase. To complete my order I had to call Sephora’s customer care to place my order since my payment method was by 3 separate gift cards and the website only allows 2 with a different payment method. Below you can find the items I happened to purchase.
Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm
I thought the reviews on Sephora’s website was interesting, so I decided on purchasing this lip balm. I’m looking for something that will work overnight as according to a personal review that was a major point. I will post my review about this lip balm in a later post.
OCC Lip Tar Trio Matte
OCC Lip Tar Matte Color Vivid: Harlot, Nylon & Trollop
How could I resist not purchasing this exclusive limited edition OCC Lip Tar, after all they were already on sale…… These colours are so cute.
Sephora Collection: Professional Slim Pencil Sharpener

A good sharpener is essential for all those slim eye/lip pencil, so this sharpener was my pick from the Sephora’s website…
Beauty Blender Cleanser
I have so many beauty blenders, so I definitely had to get a full size cleanser.
Sephora Beauty Insider B’day Gift
Make Up Forever Lipstick and Mascara
Since October is my birthday month and I’m a Beauty Insider at Sephora I received this deluxe sample size lipstick and mascara complimentary from Make Up Forever.
Givenchy Mascara Volume Extreme
I redeem my Beauty Insider points for this Givenchy Mascara. Points are earned from purchased items, 100 points was use towards this item.
I also scored 3 perfume samples, namely:
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Muguet Peony Musk for her
I went by MAC cosmetics in search of MAC lipstick in the colour Relentlessly Red and a brow set unfortunately they were all sold out. Anyhow the sales clerk pointed out three other shades that are a little similar to Relentlessly Red those of the three are: All Fired Up, La Vie En Route and Dama Glamorous which is a bit brighter in colour than the others. I fell in love with all three and I found it difficult to select one.
MAC Lipstick Swatches
From L-R Flat Out Fabulous, All Fired Up, La Vie En Route & Dama Glamorous
After thoroughly going through all the shades they had available on the lipstick rack I decided to go with Flat Out Fabulous, All Fired Up and a Lip Pencil namely Currant.
Well I was inspired by the sales clerk to purchase the Lip Pencil in Currant, she was wearing it with Candy Yum Yum, it was so pretty on her lips. I had already own Candy Yum Yum, so I didn’t have to purchase it.
