Sephora Friends & Family Sale 2009 – Get 20% Off!

Sale starts today — October 19th!  Happy hauling! During the sale, you’ll get 20% off nearly everything with code FF2009.

  • Dates: October 19th through November 2nd, 2009
  • Code: FF2009 (If you use Ebates, you can shop through this link.)
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Good only: Online, U.S. only

Canadians: it has not quite been confirmed yet, but it does sound like an in-store F&F sale is in the works; some representatives are saying you’ll receive a coupon valid in-store via e-mail — others are still saying no sale.

In-store: as far as we know, there is a friends and family sale in-store, but it is restricted to those who are fortunate enough to receive actual discount sheets from Sephora employees (you know, their friends and family, ha!).  Still, there’s likely to be a mass customer e-mail in the next couple of days to announce the sale online, so perhaps they’ll extend it in-store to all customers, but we don’t know.  (They haven’t done so in the past.)

Sale is up and running! So that means there’s just one thing to do…


My haul: I picked up some Kate Somerville products I’ve been eying (ExfoliKate – just 2 oz. and EradiKate), as well as Kate Somerville’s Oil-Free Moisturizer (which I adore, but I find pricey!), as well as Philosophy Pumpkin Spice Muffin Shower Gel.  Those are just my must-haves-before-they-sell-out.  I’m still not sure if I’ll pick up anything else during the sale, but it’ll probably be pricey stuff or staples.

The Best of the Best, Volume #008

This week’s been better than the last — not quite so sick (just got this loud cough) — but I’ve been playing catch-up in every aspect of my life. I literally feel like I lost an entire week of my life!

What are your weekend plans?

We’re going to go see my boyfriend’s family to celebrate my (much belated now) birthday, since we weren’t able to visit two weeks ago since we were both ridiculously sick.

Temptalia Asks You

What scent to you prefer in your lipstick/gloss? Vanilla? Fruity? Perfume-y?

Temptalia's Answer.

I like vanilla the most, from what I’ve smelled. It’s safe, not too much, and pleasant overall.

Temptalia Asks You

What beauty product/area do you spend the most money on? Eyeshadow? Lipgloss? Face masks? What?

Temptalia's Answer.

I always seem to blow my money on lipsticks and lipglosses!
