Sephora Spring Savings Event Shopping Guide

When is the Sephora Spring Savings Event?

As with most Sephora sales, the Spring Savings Event is a tiered sale where the status you have with Sephora's free Beauty Insider program determines when you are able to shop and how much of a discount you will receive.

The Sephora Spring Savings Event begins Friday, April 5, 2024 in store and online, for those who are Rouge status with the Beauty Insider program. Rouge status members get 20% off their purchases. Also on April 5th, all Sephora Collection products are 30% off, regardless of status.

On Tuesday, April 9, the sale opens to those in VIB and Insider status. VIB status members receive 15% off their Sephora purchases and Insider status members will receive 10% off their purchase. The Sephora Spring Savings Event ends April 15 for all levels of Beauty Insider members.

Sephora Insider benefits 2024

What if I'm not a Sephora Insider?

Do you have a friend who has Rouge status? Contact them, as they can each give one person 20% off through April 8, 2024. The code can be found in their Beauty Insider profile; this gift discount can be used online or in-store.

However, I recommend signing up for Sephora's free Insider program. By signing up you will automatically be Insider status and be able to shop the sale starting April 9th.

What makes this sale so special?

It may feel as though Sephora has one of these deals every month, but in fact, a discount of up to 20% at Sephora only happens twice a year. Sephora is known for makeup, but the company carries a wide range of skincare, haircare, body care, and wellness products as well. And unlike department stores, Sephora mixes high-end with more budget-friendly yet highly-rated brands (and has an affordable in-house brand that is 30% off during this event).

A lot of the products sold at Sephora are sold at other retailers but rarely go on sale. From night creams to eyeliners, electronic devices to brushes, shampoo to self-tanner, they are all up to 20% off for this limited-time savings event.

And with all of this, I pass the baton to Debbie to share her thoughts on the Sephora Spring Savings Event and what she plans to purchase! Thank you Debbie, for sharing your Sephora shopping list!

Sephora Spring Savings Event Shopping Guide

There’s something to be said for finding your holy grail makeup products. I just reviewed my picks from the October sale, and I still love all of them, and most I don’t need to repurchase yet.

What I bought in the Fall Sephora sale and if I need (or want) to repurchase

Some I bought the biggest size in the fall sale (Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer) or multiples (Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream). Or it’s just something that seems to last forever (NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer). Or something that I don’t use regularly so I don’t have to purchase regularly (Farmacy Honey Potion Plus Ceramide Hydration Mask).

I think the only things I need to repurchase are the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleaner and the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm. I also need some more brow gel, but that’s one place where I’m going to try something new.

What I've tried before and love enough to repurchase during this sale

There are a few items that I’ve tried and am buying full sizes of:

Using the Sephora sale to try new products for less

At the same time, I am always looking at new products, or my needs just change. I try to delay buying something new for a while, I put it in my Favorites and watch it, think about how it will work with my other products, read the new reviews as they come in, see if I can get the same effect with something I already own. I often try to wait for one of the Sephora sales, but also keep in mind that 20% off isn’t THAT much. 

For this sale, I’m mostly purchasing new things.

Shopping my latest favorites from Sephora

I have found some new favorites over the past few months that I may stock up on during this Sephora sale. Even if I don't need to buy I want to share as I think they're worth buying.

Gisou Propolis Infused Polishing Primer

Gisou Propolis Infused Polishing Primer

My current favorite hair product is the Gisou Propolis Infused Polishing Primer. I think with my hair, each individual strand is thick, I just don’t have as much hair as I used to. And creams always worked better with my hair than a liquid (back in high school, I would put Oil of Olay in my hair! We’ve come a long way, baby).

This stuff is really nice. I put a dollop in my hair and after heat styling, it comes out so shiny and soft. Even when I let it air dry, my hair just doesn’t look as air-dried as it used to. It feels like magic. I’m on a work trip right now and this is the only product I brought with me. I haven’t used it in the summer, so can’t speak to how it works with humidity, but it does seem promising!

Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder Flushed - Matte Color for Cheek & Lip

Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder Flushed – Matte Color for Cheek & Lip

I also only brought one blush on this trip. I love layering blush. Pink on top of peach on top of rose. But lately, it’s been just the Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder Flushed – Matte Color for Cheek & Lip in Rose N Brunch. It’s very similar in tone to the Pat McGrath Labs Nude Venus, but a bit deeper. I like the current “boyfriend blush” look and this helps me get that.

I take a large brush that’s fluffy, but not overly soft and first stamp it on my cheeks, then blend. I then buff in some Hourglass Ambient Lighting Finishing Powder (I use Luminous Light), and I’m done. I think the Rose N Brunch color is really natural on my fair to light skin, though I also have it in Jubilee, which is a soft terracotta that I like in the summer. Plus, this product lasts all day, and I’ve never found a blush that really does that for me.

Dieux Instant Angel Lipid-Rich Barrier Repair Cream

Dieux Instant Angel Lipid-Rich Barrier Repair Cream

I’m a huge fan of the Dieux Instant Angel Lipid-Rich Barrier Repair Cream. It’s thick but not heavy and I like that it stays a bit sticky and think that’s part of what makes it work well under makeup (Alison tried some of mine and did NOT like that factor at all!), though I also use it at night.

Sephora Collection Love The Lift Curling and Volumizing Mascara

Sephora Collection Love The Lift Curling and Volumizing Mascara

I haven’t gotten a lash lift in a while and my lashes are pretty sad. But the Sephora Collection Love The Lift Curling and Volumizing Mascara makes them less sad. My left eye’s lashes aren’t that sad, and with this mascara, they’re AMAZING. My right eye’s lashes are a total mess and this mascara lifts them up to their previously normal level better than any other mascara, drugstore or high-end, that I’ve tried.

Farmacy Brighten UP 3% TXA Dark Spot Toner

Farmacy Brighten UP 3% TXA Dark Spot Toner

I have only been using the Farmacy Brighten Up 3% TXA Dark Spot Toner for a month or two, but I really think it’s helped lighten some of my age spots.

  1. I love that new Benefit wax! I can finally get my brows on without making a mess. I use alone when I want a very natural look. I combine with pencil when I do a full face.

  2. Grande Brow has a new 2in1 product that is a tinted brow gel with grandebrow serum inside. This has been a game changer for me because my #1 issue with brow serum is forgetting to use it, but I will put on tinted brow gel every day. It has made a major difference in my brows in just a few weeks. I don’t even have to extend the tail of my brow with a pencil anymore.

    I don’t need much now but will pick up a new Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rush. Mine just ran out and I’ve gone through 2 already. Maybe an Urban Decay Moondust in Solstice as I’m about to hit pan on that too.

  3. I love the Charlotte Tillbury Pillow Talk mascara. I have pretty long lashes, so I usually curl and add 1 coat to define them a bit. Also, oily eyelids demand a primer (unless I’m using a stick shadow). I’ve always used Urban Decay’s, but if anyone can recommend something another brand they love, I’d try it.

  4. I trust your tubing mascara reviews. I’m a long time fan of Trish McEvoys High Volume mascara but I’m always looking for one with a little more “oomph.” Curious to see what you think of the Cali Ray one. I know there have been great reviews and I bought it with high hopes. Let’s just say I’m still on the hunt for a great tubing mascara.

    1. Hourglass has a great one! I think i has more oomph and volume compared to the Trish McAvoy one or blinc’s. To me, it’s the tubing mascara most like regular mascara but without the raccoon eyes.

  5. I have been recommended a beauty blender so many times and I’m secretly not sure how to use them. I’ve used a fluffy brush from MAC for my (liquid) foundation for a long time now but I wonder if I should experiment with switching…

    1. The way I use mine is I wet it, and then squeeze out as much moisture as possible. I even squeeze it into a washcloth to capture more. Then I dot on foundation or concealer and use the Beauty Blender to pat it into place. SOme also use Beauty Blenders to apply powders. If the brush works for you, then do it. If it’s not broke you don’t need to spend more at Sephora!

    2. There is a very detailed video on Sephora of how to use it – not just for foundation, but a ton of things! Follow Alison’s link.

  6. As long as we’re talking makeup….as an older (ahem) woman, my eyebrows are disappearing! And the hairs that are left are coarse, unruly, and frequently grey. (Gasp) Please, do you have any recommendations for this?

    1. I really like this product, it’s like a liquid liner but it’s thin like watercolor and I flick around in my brows to fill bare spots and it looks natural even though I have zero skill. And it’s NYX so it’s cheap. It’s the Snatch Eyebrow Tint: https://amzn.to/36VlD0X

      A lot of folks prefer this product from NYX which has been called Toppik for brows as it’s a powder that can fill in spots: https://amzn.to/3x3xFzW

      And then a colored brow mascara will tame the unruly hairs and tint them a different color. Stick It from NYX is a thickening brow mascara and I think it’s a better tamer than products 5X the price: https://amzn.to/3KbXyBg

      I learned from a brow expert to use taupe when you’re going gray, even if you dye your hair. Taupe brows will more more natural than brunette with your skintone. If taupe isn’t available choose an ash brown or gray-brown.

    2. P, I don’t know if you’ll see this, but I had the same problem. I started using Revitabrow and it has worked miracles. I now have thick gorgeous eyebrows again. I also started dying my eyebrows myself. The day after I do it, it looks a bit like Dan Levy, but then it looks great. I use Refectocil dye after seeing Angie from You Look Fab recommend it.

      I bought the Revitabrow from the Nordstrom annual sale and plan to buy it again this year.

      1. I use the Neubrow, too (got it at nord’s semi-annual sale a few years again and just bought more). It really works.

  7. The only natural deodorant that works for me is from a local place here in Baltimore, Mt Royal Soaps. I have no affiliation other than being a happy customer of their shampoo bars, miracle salve/balm, and deodorant. https://www.mountroyalsoaps.com/

    Off topic but: Have you tried Zuri dresses? Also not affiliated but fell prey to all the ads I kept seeing as an early birthday self-gift. I got a solid color, sort of a persimmon. The dress came in a tote made of fabric scraps from other dress patterns. It is maybe a little longer than I’d like (I’m 5’2″ ish) but I worried the short would be too short. I think it’ll be good for the hot/humid summer since it is airy but I can wear fall/spring with tights/cardigan/jacket/boots.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation! And I haven’t tried Zuri because I LOVE the prints but the silhouette is just not my style. I don’t feel comfortable in a dress of that length, cut, and fabric with my bust and legs. I appreciate the brand so much, but am waiting to see if they carry anything in the future more me.

      1. I too love the prints from Zuri but am also short and busty so worry the look will be sofa cushion rather than artsy insouciance. Also my mind keeps whispering “cultural appropriation?” at me. Still thinking on it.

  8. Thanks for the review – this made me realize my “beautyblender” is actually a cheap dupe. Going to try the real thing!

  9. The OG beauty blender is worth it. I’ve tried so many cheaper versions & they end up gross & cracking / chipping away bits of sponge within a month while the OG is still perfectly fine. One of those times when it’s worthwhile to pay more!

  10. I’m trying the caliray tubing mascara right now too and am liking it a lot so far! I used to use the Clinique tubing one and while I loved the look, I practically had to yank my lashes out at night to remove it. This one gives great volume, absolutely no flaking or smudging, and is pretty easy to remove with warm water and gentle pressure. I’m eager to read your updated mascara review!
