How to save on your lipsticks at Sephora


If you shop at Sephora, here are a few ways to save on your favorite lipstick or mascara.

Social media is the first stop. Follow Sephora on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out about upcoming sales, promotions and giveaways. Take advantage of the great semi-annual sales, typically in April and November.

Samples, samples, samples. Get up to three free samples when you visit a Sephora retail store. You can even take advantage of these freebies when ordering online. Search Beauty Deals and take advantage of a wide variety of great stuff.

Location matters. The best deals at Sephora tend to be on the end caps and the store’s perimeter.

Get rewarded. Sign up for Sephora’s free reward program. For each dollar you spend, earn points that can earn you free merchandise, classes, makeovers and invites to VIP events

Get educated. The website offers great tips and tutorials, but it’s even better if you can visit Sephora for free beauty classes. The sales staffs at Sephora are great at what they do and know the products; don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Happy returns. If you get home and hate your new makeup, return it. Sephora will accept opened goods within 60 days as long as it looks fairly new.

Fun fact. You can use a J.C. Penney gift card at Sephoras located within the department store.
