Every December, I lurk Sephora both in store and online to see what they’ll be giving away as the Beauty Insider birthday gift each year. The past couple years have been awesome with gifts from Make Up For Ever and NARS, and this year looks like it won’t be a disappointment!
User “Monikay” on the BeautyTalk boards uploaded this photo taken at a store in Brea, revealing one of the 2016 Sephora birthday gifts for beauty insiders: a combo of a travel sized version of Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser and a deluxe mini of their Rose Face Mask. If your store already has it in the display, you’ll most likely get a choice of whether you want the 2015 NARS gift or this new one. But, this isn’t all!
A few days ago, a Reddit user uploaded this photo showing the new year’s VIB Rouge welcome/renewal gift (a mini NARS Blush in what looks to be either the shade Orgasm or Deep Throat) as well as a closer peek at the birthday gifts. We see the Fresh duo again, but also a Marc Jacobs box set including a mini Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in a light pink shade (perhaps Georgie Girl?) and a mini Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Black.
I’m pretty happy they’re offering a color cosmetic gift on top of the skin care gift, since skin care is so personal and may not be the best choice for everyone.
All you need to do to be eligible for this gift is be a part of their Beauty Insider program, which is free to join. Usually, there’s a separate men’s and VIB Rouge birthday gift, but I haven’t seen any news on those yet– I’ll update this post as they become known!
