Welcome, VIB Rouge!

It's here! Welcome to the top, darlings (in my best Starletta8 voice). You guys have been talking about it for weeks, but VIB Rouge is officially on deck.


In case you're not aware (where have you been??), VIB Rouge is Sephora's new premium membership tier. Spend $1K in a calendar year and you get awesome new benefits like free shipping on ALL orders, unlimited access to the Sephora Beauty Studio, exclusive Rouge events and gifts (I've heard about some of what's coming, it's insane), and much more. I know, $1k seems like a lot, but given how many new Rouge badges I've seen popping up around the community I think BeautyTalkers may be over-represented in this particular category! (A blow dryer here, a UD lipstick there, a new Algenist serum and...it adds up, trust me. Smiley Happy)


I've seen a lot of BT'ers wondering how far they are from reaching Rouge. To you, I offer this exclusive BeautyTalk hack, straight from an ingenious community member (I now can't remember what thread I first saw it in, but if it was from you, speak up!):

1. Sign into your sephora.com account.

2. Put a higher priced item or two in your basket (Say a Clarisonic kit and a ghd flat iron)

3. If you are within about $150, a little banner will pop up at the top of your basket letting you know how far you are from qualifying for Rouge.

4. Do the math (add the price of your items to the $ amount in the banner).

5. Keep shopping (optional, but encouraged) #enablersanonymous


So, who has gotten their Rouge Welcome kit? You know I want to see it. Post a pic in the comments!

@violalea - Either way, thanks for the tip! 


@JenBlush - OMG I LOVE THAT. So funny!

@JenBlush - Oh, and I think the events will be all over the place, but if I get more info that I can share, you know I will!

@candacebt That should be our theme song! haha!

@candacebt - You're welcome!!!!! Smiley Happy

I looooove being a VIB Rouge! So prestigious, yet I don't dare tell my husband (who sighs at the weekly Sephora boxes)...


Smiley Very Happy

I love being VIB Rouge too! I went to my Sephora today but they didn't have any Rouge cards in yet! They said I was the first Rouge customer they had and were all excited about the perks coming up. I was disappointed that I'll have to wait for a card, but they did make me feel special!

@melissa93 i have always kept my BI for backup just incase my VIB one wouldnt work! I got my VIB during the VIB week last year, and this year at the begining of the year i requalified and they gave me another VIB card, and now i gOt the Rouge! But i think i will forever keep the others just in case! I wonder if they even work? Lol

Yes that would be awesome if there were more local events. There are never any events at my local Sephora. I could drive into downtown Seattle, but it's not worth getting lost in all the one way streets. Me and not knowing exactly where I'm going in traffic doesn't mix lol!

I would hope there would be like a Rouge week so i can see these ladies that share my crazy sephora spending habit!

just placed the last order i need to make vib rouge! so excited!

Ah, love the shout-out!


Im geeked out that the back of the card is the same shiny red!

@starletta8 - you should become a mod Smiley Happy

@jenblush -that would be so awesome if we could actually meet each other and go makeup crazy together.

I am so excited about this whole rouge thing, and these pics are encouraging me to go pick mine up at sephora in the morning Smiley Happy I'm lovin the red! It inspired me to wear red-ish lipstick today

Yay!!!...got the email today...I'm going tomorrow ...another reason to go buy something at Sephora...lol I've been 3 times in less than 2 weeks. 

Yaaay! I'm only $160 away from VIB Rouge! Am going travelling for a few weeks but when I get back, BAM!!

I just made Rouge! So excited to receive my welcome kit <3 Smiley Happy

I haven't stopped into my local sephora in a while : I

But I received an email about this yesterday and I'm excited to get my welcome package and see what kinds of rewards are available! Smiley Very Happy I've already got my wishlist ready for my next visit.

Don't have my BI card on me, but excited for VIB Rouge. I wonder how many of us are out there!

Hey ladies! I just made Rouge... can't wait to get my card!!! Also, this now explains why I don'heavyweight any money in my savings account, it all goes to sephora,

I FINALLY went in to Sephora to get my card. When I asked for it the lady was all excited. I couldn't believe how nice she was. It was shocking. After I made my purchase, I asked for a sample of cologne my dad and she said, "anything you want mama" I was like --- what the?! overall, it was a nice experience and well, it shouldn't be like that only to VIBROUGE ....wish they were like that to everyone... IMO
