Top Product Picks for Sephora's Fall VIB Sale | 2015

I'll be the first to admit I have a problem when it comes to shopping. Except 'problem' should really be called 'disease' and 'shopping' probably 'product hoarding'.

I just feel more at ease when I have at least 100 options for each area of my body. Any less and I start to tense up and get clammy.

Here's a peek at my top product picks for Sephora's upcoming fall sale. The retailer gives 20% off to their VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider) and VIB Rouge (an elite club, of which I am shamefully a member) customers each year around November.

Which means my calendar has been marked since last December.

We have some shopping to do.

My Top Product Picks

The value on this brow bestseller set is insane. I'm pretty sure someone fucked up pricing this and it's just too late to change it now. It boasts two options, a light/medium and a medium/deep collection - impressive. Four full-size brow fillers, a mini clear brow gel and tweezers. For $40! If you heard someone drop a mic and walk offstage, it was Sephora.

Sephora has been stepping their K-Beauty game and I've been enjoying every second. This little nugget's two-step masking process made me do a double take and add to bag. Although I side-eye any product that claims to "open" pores (lies), the hot-then-cold ritual still still perplexes and intrigues me.

I probably don't need to be spending $30 on another taupey-rosey-neutral shadow but I'm going to do it anyway. Swatch research has proven this specific shade to be very versatile, and I am all for "one and done" eye shadows that can be slapped on when you're half asleep in the morning.

These glosses are weird and unnecessary but SO satisfying and lovely to wear. Very little payoff but the color deepens on your lips and gives this sexy, wet shine that somehow looks healthy and hooker-y all in one swipe. This peach color looks gorgeous and nothing says winter like a warm peach lip.

I received a sample of this magical elixer and have been using it each time I heat style, with luxurious and silky results. Heat protectants are gimmicky in general (especially that Tresemme bullshit everyone is always gabbing about - serious yawn and does nothing), but this one delivers. It coats the hair shaft easily and keeps my frizz in check without weighing it down.

6. Shiseido Facial Cotton

If you're still buying cotton pads from CVS, do yourself a favor and upgrade. These are incredibly soft and ridiculously durable - I can take off a full smokey eye, waterproof mascara and my brows with just one pad. I always stock up on these when there's a sale.

7. BITE Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Bordeaux 

I've purged most of my darker lipsticks since realizing the majority of them pile on my lips after a few hours of wear. I've been craving a deep berry lip, and BITE rarely disappoints. I'm already a big fan of their creme lipsticks and high pigment pencils and have heard stellar things about this formula.

8. Peter Thomas Roth Acne Clear Invisible Dots

I don't know what to say about these, other than they're so gimmicky they just might work. Also, tiny band-aids for pimples seem ridiculously cute. I think these would make anyone feel better about a massive breakout.
