It’s time for the annual Sephora Holiday Savings Event. The popular savings event launched on October 28th for Rouge members. Some brands at Sephora rarely go on sale or if you want to stock up on your holy grail items, now is your chance. You may even want to start your holiday shopping a little early, but stay tuned for our take on which of Sephora’s gift sets are worth the price tag.
If you are ready to shop, here are the details:
- Rouge members—customers who spend a minimum of $1,000 in one calendar year—can save 20 per cent off all of their in-store, online and in-app purchases from October 28 until November 7 using the code SAVINGS. This year, they can also give one friend 20% off until October 31
- VIB members—customers who have spent $350 in a year— save 15 per cent from November 1 to November 7
- Sephora Insiders – no minimum spend, but must be signed up to the program – save 10 per cent off from November 3 until November 7 using the same code
- All Sephora Collection items are 30 per cent off during the entire sale period
To help you put your list together, we put together our 7 top makeup picks for the Sephora Holiday Savings Event. We have tested some of these products, but others are on our wish list. Happy shopping!

Natasha Denona My Dream Eyeshadow Palette – $87.00
Natasha Denona My Dream Eyeshadow Palette looks like a best of Natasha Denona in gorgeous shades that are perfect for the fall and winter. Known to be the makeup artist’s most personal palette, this is on our wish list.
If you plan on buying the palette and you aren’t familiar with Natasha Denona’s formula, there is a learning curve, but once you understand how to use the shadows, the pay off is worth it. Apply shimmers with your finger for the most foiled, metallic results. Apply mattes with a fluffy brush. This palette can take you from day to night, there are enough neutrals and enough depth to create any look that you want.
Buxom Lash Volumizing Mascara – $30.00
Buxom Lash Volumizing Mascara is a mascara that doesn’t get enough love. We’ve tried the mascara and it lengthens, volumizes and separates. No lumps, no flakes, no raccoon eyes. Isn’t that all we can ask for? This is one of the best available at Sephora.
CLINIQUE Almost Lipstick in Black Honey – $28.00
This universally flattering lip colour is having a resurgence thanks to TikTokers discovering what we knew all along. CLINIQUE Almost Lipstick has a balm-like texture and looks different on everyone who wears it. Don’t be scared by the deep shade in the tube – it will sheer out on application and leave you with your own perfect colour. It’s a must buy at the Sephora Holiday Savings Event.Buy Now
