We’ve applied the 15 percent VIB discount to all of the products below, so if you’re a Rogue or an Insider member, your sale price will differ slightly.
The Luminous Skin Foundation
Delivering a luminous, natural glow, this buildable, medium-coverage foundation is well worth the price tag. — Chinea Rodriguez, shopping writer
The Very Rich Face Cream
A full-size of this cult favorite face cream usually retails for $175 to $280. You can get both of those during the sale, but we recommend opting for the mini. At only $85, it’s just as rich and hydrating while still targeting fine lines and hyperpigmentation. — C.R.
The Best Under-eye Brightener
The Red-carpet Beauty Secret
TikTok users claim this viral complexion booster is the secret to celebrities’ perfect red-carpet skin, and I can attest to its magic. I’m not big on makeup, but this is my go-to product when I want my skin to look dewy and even. — Bianca Nieves, senior shopping editor
The Smart Straightener
Everything you own is “smart,” so your flat iron might as well be, too. With nine heat settings to personalize the iron to your hair texture, this smooths and straightens hair with less damage. There’s even a mode for next-day refreshing that protects your hair from additional heat damage. — C.R.
The Smooth-Skin Serum
This cult-favorite skin-smoothing AHA serum is usually more than $100, so it’s worth grabbing on sale. The all-in-one targets dark spots, hyperpigmentation, pores, and fine lines. — C.R.
The Best Eyelash Curler
One of the best-selling eyelash curlers, this staple from Shiseido grabs and curls even the smallest, straightest lashes and keeps them curled all day. — C.R.
The Skin-Tightening Serum
The application of this product is really genius. It’s too soon to say if it actually works, but it feels great. It also gives attention to an area I would most likely forget to pay attention to. — Joanna Nikas, deputy style editor
The High-Volume Mascara
Finding the perfect mascara for yourself is tricky — so tricky that I would rather opt for eyelash extensions. YSL’s new mascara has me second-guessing my extensions, though. The voluminous formula glides over the lashes with ease for a lengthy and non-clumpy finish, and when it’s time to come off at night, there’s no hassle. — Asia Milia Ware, fashion and Beauty Jr. writer
The Best Self-tanner
As a Black woman, I’ve always been opposed to self-tanning because it felt like something I didn’t need. However, I recently tested these drops, and my entire outlook changed. The dark serum evened my skin tone out, reduced the appearance of my hyperpigmentation, and made my skin baby soft. — A.W
The Ultimate Contouring Tool
The Natural-Finish Foundation
Make Up for Ever’s latest foundation has been in my daily rotation since I’ve tried it. The skinlike finish is flawless, and a little product goes a long way. It’ll be your favorite foundation for spring and summer. — A.W
The Curly Hair-Claw Clip
Senior fashion writer Emilia Petrarca will be grabbing this Pattern Beauty hair clip made for easily sectioning and styling curls without breaking as hair clips often do.
The Best-selling LED Mask
The best-selling LED mask features three modes to target acne, wrinkles, and sun damage and prevent future breakouts. — C.R.
The Dewy Skin Concealer
Probably one of my favorite spur-of-the-moment beauty purchases, this buildable coverage concealer gives you fresh, dewy skin that looks natural. — C.R.
The Soothing Cream Cleanser
A little bit goes a long way with this Korres cleanser. I would even recommend this mini one for those of you who are starting to travel again. It is soothing, takes off my eye makeup, and smells nice. — J.N
The Stay-All-Day Lip Liner
The Charlotte Tilbury lip cheat liner in iconic nude is a crowd pleaser. It stays on throughout the day and usually doesn’t smudge off on a mask. — J.N.
The Radiant Concealer
I’ve been using this product for years. I don’t wear foundation, so I use this as my only face makeup, and it holds up and never looks cakey. — J.N
The Best-Smelling Candle
Sad to inform you that sometimes it does take an expensive candle to make your apartment smell expensive. Luckily, now it’s on sale. — B.N
The Splurge-Worthy Candle
Spring cleaning calls for new spring candles. There’s something about my favorite perfumes being bottled up into a candle that makes the aroma of my space feel extra special. Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry is a warm scent with a pleasurable cherry tinge that lasts all day long. If you like the fragrance, then you’ll love the candle. It’s a splurge, but one that’s worth it, and there’s no better time to pick it up than the sale. — A.W.
The Smooth-Skin Duo
This duo is ideal for flare-ups and breakouts. Faded targets discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and breakouts with kojic acid and niacinamide. Like Butter is a 20-minute mask that soothes and moisturizes with coloidial oatmeal and ceramides. —C.R.
