How to score the best deals at the beauty store.
There’s no place like Sephora when it comes to finding beautiful makeup and skincare products in a wide range of price point, it truly is a beauty lover’s mecca. Even if you’re an old pro who knows Sephora’s aisles like the back of your hand, there are quite a few little tricks that can be utilized to make your experience even more enjoyable and affordable.
Take Advantage of the Gift Sets
These bundles and kits are a great way to get to know a new brand and try out an assortment of products for less than it would cost to get individual, full-sized products.
Download the Sephora App
Not only will it make shopping and keeping track of your purchases much easier, but often products launch early and with special app-only offers.
Indulge in Samples
You are entitled to three samples per section which is especially key when trying out shade-matching products like foundation and concealer. It makes a big difference to take a few days and see how it looks when applied at home, how it holds up during the day, and what it looks like in different light.
Take Advantage of the Weekly Wow Sale
Every Thursday, you can get four or five best-selling products from high-end brands at 50 percent off.
Keep Track of Their Ongoing Sales
Brands have a variety of promotions on rotation on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. For example, Kat Von D’s Everlasting Flash Sale offers new lipstick bundles at a discounted rate for 48 hours only at the beginning of every month.
