Possibly one of the best perks of being a Sephora Beauty Insider, besides the reward points and free samples, is getting a free beauty gift on your birthday—no purchase necessary. That deal gets even sweeter when Sephora decides to collaborate with NARS to offer a fabulous lip duo.
The NARS One Year Bolder duo includes deluxe minis of NARS’ best-selling Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien, a rose pink, and Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, a scarlet red. They are also throwing in an extra Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto, a deep black, to reward Sephora VIB Rouge members for their loyalty (and spending a pretty penny at Sephora on the regular).
Sephora usually sends out email reminders for you to come into the store for your gift (or add your free gift to your online order)—but typically you can grab it anytime within two weeks before and two weeks after your birthday.
So, if you aren’t signed up to be a Beauty Insider yet—there’s no better time than now! It’s free to become a Beauty Insider and start earning points immediately (1 for every $1 you spend, to be exact) which can be redeemed for deluxe sized samples and special rewards. If you spend over $350 in a calendar year, you’ll be promoted to a VIB and if you’re an extreme beauty junkie spending over $1000 in that time, you’ll go straight to VIB Rouge—each status has their own awesome perks like getting first dibs on new products and discounts a few times a year.
Of course, Sephora doesn’t want to leave out the boys either! If NARS lip products aren’t your thing, there’s also a Peter Thomas Roth Skincare Duo including a cleanser and gel mask that you can opt for.
