Friends & Family Sales Galore!

Did anyone else notice that Sephora left their VIB Sale codes active yesterday (it’s sadly over today)?  Major learning for next VIB Sale (coming up in the spring, although it’s only 15% off) – try your code the day before (it was active the day before this time) and the day after the marketed dates.  Well, it’s probably better to try it the day before to get the products you want before it inevitably gets sold out (like the big bottle of the  Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water I wanted that sold out almost immediately).

In any case, November is my favorite month for shopping because of all the Friends and Family sales that are going on!

Too Faced is 20% off until November 14th with code TAKE20:


STILA is doing 25% off until November 17th, no code necessary!

IT Cosmetics is doing 25% off until November 30th with code FRIENDS25   I highly recommend their Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ (I use the shade Medium, and I’m about a MAC NC 25, Chanel shade B30).  I just ran out of my first tube and am buying another one.  I use it everyday, and it holds up on my oily skin with no irritation.  Great coverage (at least medium).

In non-beauty related news, Bloomingdales is doing 20% off until November 16th with code HOLIDAY.  I already used the code to pick up the Longchamp Le Pliage Neo Medium in Black.  I’m not Longchamp lover like a lot of my friends are, but what sold me is that it comes with a cross-body strap, has short handles so I can put it in the crook of my arm, and is the perfect size for a work and/or travel bag.  I already know I will love it!

Please share with us if you know of any other Friends & Family sales going on!
