Sephora's Beauty Insider Event Is Almost Over — Don't Miss These Deals

Megan Decker

Sephora's big Beauty Insider Event is almost over, but if you've missed the first-round hustle, fear not, you still have a few hours to shop — and sweep up some insane last-minute savings.

For those just joining us, here's a quick breakdown: The Insider Event is open to all three tiers of Sephora's Insider loyalty program, but the highest savings go to Rouge members (those who spend $1000 or more a year). Rouge gets you 20% off when you use the code 'HEYROUGE'. If you're a VIB member (you spend $350 a year), you'll get 15% off any purchase using the code 'HEYVIB,' and if you're an Insider (you simply signed up), get 10% off using 'HEYINSIDER.'

No matter where you fall on the membership ladder, the opportunity to save ends at midnight tonight — Monday, May 6 — meaning, this is the last call. If you're looking to strategize your shopping, we've broken down our readers' most-shopped Sephora beauty products — all of which will be price-chopped by 10, 15, or a full 20% if you add-to-cart now. From Drunk Elephant to a trusty bottle of Olaplex, scroll through the slides ahead for 14 foolproof ways to win big at Sephora — before everything's back to full-price.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
