Show and Tail Pt. 1: Angela’s Picks for Sephora Sale

Every November, I look forward to the chance to shop Sephora for 20% off.

That’s when Sephora’s annual Rouge/VIB/BI sale takes place, so I spend September and October carefully building my cart.  In this post, I let the cat out of the (shopping) bag and share my recommendations–a mix of splurges, staples, and smart gifts.  And don’t forget that Sephora has a whole K-beauty section featuring Belif, AmorePacific, Caolion, Primary Raw, Dr. Jart+, Erborian, and more and also sells Korean makeup brands such as Chosungah 22, Touch in Sol, and Too Cool for School.

01 Chosungah 22 Dong Gong Minn Brow Maker Grey Brown ReviewThe only product currently available on Sephora is the Dong Gong Minn Brow Maker ($22 for 0.37 oz.).  As fortune would have it, I spotted these in one of the bins lining the checkout line at the Sephora in the Flatiron District.  It’s super new to Sephora: there was no product sign and the sales associates were just as curious about it as I was.
