I look forward to the November VIB (very important beauty) 20% off sale every year and make my purchases online only.  I add things to my shopping list all year long in preparation for the sale.  In fact, the Guerlain power and brush have been on my list for two years and I finally bought it.  Here's information about the products I purchased:

Sephora Favorites Fragrance Sampler - I like to purchase this every year and usually do.  It's great to sample lots of popular fragrances and then select one of them to redeem the certificate for a full sized bottle. The first year I went to redeem the sales clerk and manager made a big deal over redeeming it since they didn't have the smallest size in stock.  After much ado they finally decided to give me the next size up at no additional cost.  The following year,  yet again they didn't have the small size in stock and offered the next size up, if I paid the difference in price which was $15.  Hopefully this year redeeming it will go smoothly.  I really wish I could redeem it online instead of at the store to avoid the hassle.  It's a great idea, but they really need to stock the smaller sizes!  This year's certificate says "if product is not available at the time of redemption, you will be able to select a product of equal or lesser value".  Whatever that means?!  It says it can be redeemed for the following:
  1. Betsey Johnson Too Too Pretty 1 fl oz eau de parfum
  2. Coach Poppy 1 fl oz spray
  3. DKNY Be Delicious 1 fl oz spray
  4. Givenchy Very Irresistible Givenchy 1 fl oz eau de toilette
  5. Gucci Guilty Intense 1 fl oz eau de parfum
  6. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire 1 fl oz eau de parfum
  7. Hana Mori Butterfly 1.7 fl oz eau de toilette
  8. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur 2.5 fl oz eau de toilette
  9. Marc Jacobs Dot 1 fl oz au de parfum
  10. Narcisco Rodriguez for Her 1 fl oz eau de toilette spray
  11. Prada Candy 1 fl oz eau de parfum spray
  12. Versage Bright Crystal 1 fl oz eau de toilette spray
Guerlain Meteorites Powder for the Face & Brush  - I've wanted to purchase this for years and finally did! The powder goes on with a  slight pink tint with a few pieces of pearl glitter.  The brush is a bit rough, but after you apply it your skin is really smooth comparable to a moisturizer or a gel primer.  It also has a very nice perfume type scent.  The brush comes with a black case with a magnetic closure.

Benefit Cosmetics Upgrade to Gorgeous -  this set costs a little more than High Beam costs alone, so it's silly to purchase High Beam by itself.  I wanted to try that product since lots of people rave about it.  It's bottle and brush are just like nail polish, a little weird!  It's quite pretty on, but it's easy to apply too much.  The Sugarbomb blush is pretty too, I was afraid it would be too dark for my fair skin but it's not.  I've sampled the perfume & PORE fessional before and I like them.  I would't purchase the perfume, but I would purchase the PORE fessional since it really does help reduce the appearance of your pores. I wish it wasn't temporary.  Anyone know of a product that has permanent results?  Haven't tried the mascara yet.  Hopefully there is some product in there, lately I've noticed mascara samples are usually dried out and really don't give you an idea whether or not you like them.

Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Fair - I haven't tried this yet, but I will soon and update this post with my thoughts.  I've seen this product reviewed on blogs and YouTube and thought I'd give it a try.  Seems like it's expensive, it's such a small tube.  What's your favorite concealer?

So there you have it, my 3rd Sephora haul this fall.  I hear they may give us another coupon for $20-25 off a $50 order in December.  What will I order, any suggestions?  I like to prepare in advance since many things are sold out, if you take your time deciding!  Don't forget to visit retailmenot.com for coupons and Mr. Rebates for cash back prior to making your online purchases!
