Without hyperbole, today marks the beginning of the best beauty sale on earth (Ringling Brothers voice.) It’s the annual “Sephora Holiday Bonus” sale, when everything online and in-stores is either 15 percent or 20 percent off depending on your Sephora reward card status. If you’re VIB or Rouge status, you get 20 percent off with the codes 20FORROUGE or 20FORVIB. If you have Insider status, you get 15 percent off (INSIDER15.) The codes apply through November 15. Here is a round-up of all the best beauty products that are usually never on sale (La Mer, SK-II, Chanel, Dyson, and Pat McGrath). Add them to your carts now.
Get the foundation that everyone has been talking about. I’m sure you’ve already heard, there are 40 shades.
Original Price: $34
Practically every makeup artist I know has this in their kit. If Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line set 40 shades as the benchmark for diversity, then Anastasia sets the standard for brow-shade diversity with 10. There’s a spoolie at one end of the pencil and a thin pencil at the other, delicate yet sturdy enough to shade or draw in individual hairs.

Airplane air is terrible and immediately eradicates any hard work you’ve put into your skin-care routine. Sleeping masks (intense face masks that you don’t need to wash off) are less intrusive than sheet masks. This one keeps your skin bouncy and soft, and it’s even “natural.”
Don’t sleep on the Sephora collection! This lipstick, particularly in shade 01 (a classic well-balanced red), had people instantly DM-ing me to ask what I’m wearing. It’s very pigmented, lasts through a four-course meal and drinks, and won’t give you lip flakies.
Original Price: $14
This is the bronzer that my friends beg me to get for them. It’s a peachy-bronzy shade without any orange, and the rectangle brush can also be used to gently contour.
Original Price: $29 Original Price: $125
This foundation (recommended to me by Chrissy Teigen, not that we are friends like that) truly makes your skin look like it is air-brushed. As Barbara Corcoran told the Strategist, “it doesn’t look like makeup.” Because it’s pricey (and honestly, doesn’t contain a lot of product), I rarely recommend it to people. But it’s a great thing to splurge on and try out now.
Comb the Sephora reviews for this product and they’ll mention that it works immediately. The moisturizing masks use a special type of retinol to quickly (albeit temporarily) brighten dark eye circles.
Original Price: $65
This French shampoo, created by Catherine Deneuve’s longtime colorist Christophe Robin, thoroughly deep-cleans my hair without removing volume. It also impressively keeps my hair feeling clean for up to four days without dry shampoo.
Original Price: $53
