It’s the most wonderful time of the year. 

Sephora Holiday Bonus event means everything at Sephora and on is on sale to Beauty Insiders. Here’s how this sale works: the brand offers a discount code that all loyalty shopping tiers can use. New this year, all tiers (Rouge, VIB and Beauty Insiders) will use the same code, HOLIDAYSAVE, to each get their respective discount: 20% off for Rouge members, 15% off for VIB members and 10% off for Beauty Insiders. Rouge members got early access on Nov. 1 but the sale opens up to VIB and Beauty Insiders on Thursday, Nov. 7. The sale runs through Monday, Nov. 11.

The sweet deals don’t stop there. Sephora overhauled its Beauty Insider program last year to include more perks for VIB and Rouge members including more points (1.25 points per dollar for VIB and 1.5 per dollar for Rouge members as opposed to 1 point per dollar which Beauty Insiders will continue to receive); a choice between a birthday gift or 250 bonus points and five times more rewards including a $100 reward for Rouge and a full-size product for VIB and Rouge. It’s always worth it to sign up to be a Beauty Insider. Sign up at
