Wishlist | Get Me To VIB Rouge

Sephora Wishlist
Happy Wishlist Wednesday! Don't worry, that's not becoming a thing just yet on this blog - I have a wishlist to share with you all and it just so happens it's Wednesday, haha! If you've ever been to a Sephora you'll know that they have a reward system called 'Beauty Insider' where for every $1 you spend a point is added to your account. 'Beauty Insider' is just one tier of their reward system - the second tier is 'VIB' (Very Important Beauty Insider) and to get into that tier you need to spend have spent at least $350 in a calendar year. I am currently a 'VIB' and get all the wonderful perks that come with that but now Sephora have done it and brought out a third tier called 'VIB Rouge' (how prestige sounding!) To get 'VIB Rouge' status you need to have spent at least $1000 in a calendar year. I saw that and thought, "holy cow, what?!" mostly because I knew I wouldn't be able to ever reach that tier. Turns out, I'm a lot closer than I think. I e-mailed Sephora and they told me I'm only 280 points (well 180 now, you'll see why) away from having 'VIB Rouge' status. I think I squealed, haha! I'll need to spend $280 (now $180) to get the acclaimed status of 'VIB Rouge' which comes with so many benefits your mind will explode (one being free shipping, always and forever, well, until your 'VIB Rouge'-ness expires) and a shiny red points card (which you know is the only reason I want it, haha ;) ) If you want to read more about it you can over here.  

So loooooong story short, this wishlist is a compilation of items that I've been lusting after that are sold at Sephora stores, that would help me get to 'VIB Rouge'! 
  • Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Mascara | It's got a much longer name than that but I figured I'd spare you another essay, haha! I got this mascara as a '100' point perk in my last order from Sehpra. I saw the tiny little brush and just laughed. What was that ittle bitty baby supposed to do to my lashes? A whole lot, it turns out! It's separates and because it's so tiny it can really give you lift from the root of your eyelashes, so mucho volume and your eyes appear bigger! I'm one to always go on and on about drugstore mascaras working better than high end ones but I've fallen for this bad boy, hard. 
  • Lorac Pro Palette | Who wouldn't want this palette? It's a perfect mix of shades to create a whole slew of eye looks, with a nice mix of matte and shimmery finishes. I haven't bought it yet because I've got all of Urban Decay's Naked palette's and can't justify another one, but I'm slowly starting to find reasons to need it, haha!
  • Dior Amber Diamond | THE HOLIEST OF HIGHLIGHTERS THERE IS OR WAS. Actually that's not true, I'm pretty in love with MAC's Soft & Gentle but UGH! The packaging, the shiny 'Dior' label, and just the softness of the finely milled shimmery product, makes it TOP on my "I want, I want, I want, I want, I want, I want ..." list! 
  • Yves Sait Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine in Fuchsia in Excess | See? It's an essay of a name for a lipstick, haha. Anyway, I've been eyeing this lipstick up and down ever since I saw the ad for them in Sephora. The model on the ad was wearing it and it looked so gorgeous that I instantly thought 'I have to have it!' Some like blush, some like mascaras, but for me lipstick's are my kryptonite. I don't think I'll ever have enough, haha, which is why I went ahead and already bought this yesterday on an impromptu trip to a supper fancy mall in New Jersey! So this baby has gotten me that much closer to VIB Rouge *__*
  • Caudalie Beauty Elixir | See my thoughts on this annoying, son of a sea witch product here. I love this stuff and I hate myself for loving this stuff. I'm working on a small bottle of this but know that when it's finished it'll only makes sense to get the bigger one. DANG THIS STUFF.
  • NARS Sex Appeal | This blush is like a ghost to me. It's a gorgeous soft, pale peach color that really brightens up my face and I always think about it when my eye look is a bit darker or smokey. I actually bought this once and then returned it because my wallet felt too guilty for splurging when I knew I shouldn't have. I still want this, so much. I have absolutely nothing like it in my small stash of blushes and it would be just the perfect addition!
I would totally be honored if any of these products made their way into my collection to help me get into VIB Rouge. I've already gotten the lipstick so I'm that much closer! Also, my mom bought the Marc Jacobs Honey perfume (SO CUUUUTE) so that helped push me to only needing about 180 points. I think if it weren't for my dad buying a perfume/cologne for everyone he knew around the holidays, I def. wouldn't be this close, haha! 
What would you buy to help you get to VIB Rouge?

  2. HAHA I was wondering how you got so close to $1000 Jess; I was like "Please compile a post of all of the things because they must be expensive and magical"... then I read the last sentence about your mom and dad buying tons of perfumes/colognes hahahahahah. I died. But then came back to life to tell you you should just bite the bullet and buy yourself all of the things. Seriously, milk that VIB Rouge status!! My personal first pick to get me there (which I'm no where near... I'm actually a little scared I'm not going to make it to $350 again this year haha which I guess I'm patting myself of the back for but also crying because I want to be a VIB always) would be the Lorac Unzipped Palette or the Lorac Little Black Palette; I have absolutely NO NEED for either of them but they're just the prettiest things. Anyways, I think this comment is officially too long so I'll spare you from anything further lol.

    1. I LOVE LONG COMMENTS. I just like having something to read that's not spammy, haha! Yeah, I would never have been that close without my dad needing quick and easy gifts for ze males and females, haha! I still have the year left so I think I'll push this over during Thanksgiving (BLACK FRIDAY *__*) and Hanukkah! You're a VIB for the year you ear 350 points and then the next one! I think you'll be good :) I seriously just want to try a Lorac Palette! I've heard nothing but good things!!

  3. I want that Nars Blush so bad too!!! I also really wanted the Beauty Elixer and I just bought it! However, if you're looking for a cheaper option, the Loccitane Essential Water is much better in my opinion, and it will save you about 20 bucks! Hope that helps! (heres the link if you're interested- http://usa.loccitane.com/immortelle-essential-water,82,1,29424,262087.htm)

    thanks for sharing!

    1. See, the thing is, I have no idea what a Beauty Elixir is meant for. I use it as a 'pick me up' spray and then a toner after I've cleansed and washed my face. It's just for some reason my skin ADORES this and only this. It's awful! I will see about trying the Loccitane one! If it's cheaper, maybe my skin can love it better, haha!

    1. Boy oh boy, we need it in our lives! It always in stock in Sephora but I'm not sure where you'd be able to find it in the UK :/ Somewhere should have it thought because a lot of UK vloggers talk about it all the time!

    1. Right?! That red card is all kinds of gorgeous! I JUST got the fancy VIB one when I found out they even had it, haha! YES! That's perfect! No one else in my family has the points card so they all go to me, mwahah! We'll have our little red cards (and the little red lipstick that comes with it) in no time! LOL, that is a fabulous saying!

  9. I think I am about $200 away from becoming VIP Rouge. Not entirely sure yet! I haven't been to Sephora since they launched VIP Rouge. Anyways, I want to have a YSL lip stick as well! They have absolutely beautiful packaging.

    1. Woo! I think you can e-mail them and they'll let you know exactly :) It only launches two days ago so you haven't missed much on getting it! YSL packaging is just so gorgeous with the gold and little color inside. I loooooove them <3 So worth the cheeky splurge :)

  11. I've wanted to try the baby doll mascara for awhile, not sure if I can justify the price though :/ the ysl lip sticks are to die for the product is just as beautiful as the packaging.

    1. I cannot for the life of me justify that price for a mascara. It'll probably remain on my lust list forever and I'll just see if I can't go about getting samples of it! Yeah, the lipsticks, on the other hand, are just glorious! I love the gold and the detail of the center!!

  12. That sounds like an amazing rewards program! Dior Amber Diamond is on my wish list too :)

    1. Haha, it's an alright one! The program itself is really cool but you think of how much you spent and you practically know you deserve those prizes. That makes no sense, so hopefully you understand, haha! Amber Diamond is beautiful :D

  13. The LORAC Pro Palette is a MUST! I have to say I love it more than any palette I've ever tried (yes, including both NAKED palettes). The matte shades are amazing.

    1. I feel like I'll love it more than the NAKED palettes, too, haha! I love the combo of so many mattes and shimmers! When it's all shimmer it can be overdone but when you've got a nice mix, it becomes more versatile. UGH, I want it so much!!
