Sephora Spring Sale 2018

Sephora Spring Sale 2018 - stock up on cruelty-free makeup and skincare!

Sephora Spring Sale 2018

It’s that time of year again, the Sephora Spring Sale 2018!  If you’re VIB Rouge, like me, you get 15% off your entire purchase April 13 through April 16 and April 20 through April 23. VIB members get 15% off April 20 through 23. Insiders get 10% off April 20 through 23.

There are some limitations with the sale. You’re limited to one Dyson product and three Drunk Elephant products per purchase. The brand The Ordinary is excluded from the sale.

A lot of people recommend getting gift sets during the sale. Here’s what I recommend. All of my recommendations are cruelty-free.

1. Stock Up On Cruelty-free Makeup Staples

Use the sale to stock up on your favorite cruelty-free staple items you know you’re going to burn through. Here are some of mine:

You should also stock up on your favorite foundation if Sephora carries it! I wish they carried mine – Idun Minerals Nordic Veil. Huda Beauty FauxFilter Foundation in Milkshake is one of the few cruelty-free foundations that matches me at Sephora. My Sephora Color IQ is 1Y01. You can see everything that matches 1Y01 here. Other cruelty free foundation brands with matches for my skintone are Kat Von D, Hourglass, Cover FX, Kevyn Aucoin, Smashbox and Anastasia Beverly Hills. Unfortunately when I tried Fenty 100, it oxidized on me and wasn’t a match at all.

2. Indulge in a Cruelty-free Makeup Palette or Two

Here are some of the palettes I recommend:

3. Focus on Lips

If you want to make a big impact with minimal effort with your makeup, I suggest buying some lip products during the Sephora Spring Sale 2018. I use a pencil to line and fill in my lips, then top with a lipstick, and often put glitter on top with a Glimmer Veil. Here are my favorite cruelty-free lip products:

4. Eyeshadow Singles

I would definitely stock up on some gorgeous eyeshadow singles during the Sephora Spring Sale 2018!

5. Drunk Elephant Skincare

I’ve had several people recommend Drunk Elephant to me, so after looking at them, these are the ones that I think look the most promising and I may pick up one of these during the Sephora Spring Sale 2018. If you’ve tried Drunk Elephant, let me know your favorite product in the comments below.

  • Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial – Use it as an AHA/BHA at-home facial to help with dullness, uneven skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
  • Drunk Elephant Protini – It’s supposed to help with firmness, elasticity, dryness, dullness and uneven skin texture.
  • Drunk Elephant C-Firma – It’s a super potent vitamin C serum to help with firmness, elasticity, dullness, uneven texture and skin tone.

6. Other Items

I always recommend buying big-ticket items during sales like the Sephora Spring Sale 2018, such as the Dyson blow dryer or other beauty tools. But there are some other cruelty-free makeup items to catch my attention.

If you need more Sephora Spring Sale 2018 recommendations, you can always ask me in the PhyrraNyx Facebook Group or here.

What will you be getting during the sale? I’ll be sure to share what I end up hauling with you!

  • I definitely took advantage of this sale! I bought some Stila lip primer that I absolutely love, Smashbox Always Metallic Matte lipstick and the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette(everytime I go in there I say I’m not going to buy another eyeshadow palette LOL). I should’ve bought some powder but didn’t and now I’m completely out 🙁 What to you recommend for finishing/setting powder? I prefer loose over pressed.

  • Can I ask a crazy question? You recommended the UD Backtalk palette here. But I came away from your YT video with the impression that you actually didn’t recommend it because you weren’t crazy about the quality of the eyeshadow shades. Have you changed your mind?


    • Hi! Mostly I was disappointed by how warm-toned the eyeshadows are in Backtalk. Like I said in my review
      ‘If you’re an avid Urban Decay makeup lover, you might want this palette. If you’re a fan of warm-toned eyeshadows, you might want this palette. If you’re looking for an all-in-one eye and cheek palette, this might be for you.

      If you want cool tones, you should skip this palette and get my DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette!’

      However, I think picking it up during a sale is fine! There are things I won’t buy full price that I’ll pick up during a sale, like the Kat Von D I Am Divine palette.

      The eyeshadows were ok but not great, the cheek products were good. I was so disappointed with the color Shade. However, I know some avid collectors always want to pick everything up, which is why I’d recommend during a sale and not full price.
