Sephora Starts Its Holiday Sale Today: Here Are Our Favorite Finds

What you need to know about Sephora’s holiday sale

Whether for you or for someone else, beauty products make exceptional gifts. Beauty minis, like a quality concealer, can serve as fun stocking stuffers. A complete makeup set, however, is a thoughtful gift that can be used year-round. Right now, all of these items and more are on sale in Sephora’s highly anticipated holiday sale.

What is Sephora’s Holiday Sale?

Sephora has more than 2,700 stores in 35 countries around the world. The company’s goal is to “create a welcoming beauty shopping experience for all and inspire fearlessness in our community.” To make room for incoming holiday products, Sephora is hosting a markdown celebration. Shoppers can get 10%, 15%, or 20% off select products for a few days or more than a week, depending on their Sephora Beauty Insider status.

When is Sephora’s holiday sale?

Sephora Holiday Sale dates depend on your Sephora Beauty Insider status: Insider, VIB, or Rouge.
