DRYBAR FOAM DRY SHAMPOO
Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant: Drybar’s original dry shampoo is one of my favorites, so when I heard they were coming out with a new foam variation, I knew I needed to try it. This sale’s my perfect excuse to snatch one!

TOM FORD LIPSTICK
Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant: Yes, paying over $50 for a lipstick does pain me. But when Sephora’s annual VIB sale comes along, and I can get up to 20% off of brands that would otherwise never go on sale, I splurge. And to boot, my birthday’s in a month, so I’m treating myself to this perfect nude-y pink lipstick (which I’m saving over $10 on) that I’ve dreamed of owning.

LANCOME ENERGIE DE VIE MOISTURIZER
Sharon Kanter, Deputy Style Director: If I get an opportunity to stock up on moisturizer, I do it, and this is my new favorite. I love the way it smooths and soothes my skin, as well as leaves my face feeling super-hydrated. (And I haven’t broken out once since I started using it, unlike other moisturizers I’ve tested.) So now that I’m addicted, I may as well nab some more during the sale.

SUNDAY RILEY GOOD GENES
Emily Kirkpatrick, Associate Style News Editor: I’ve been coveting the entire line of Sunday Riley products for years. In fact, every time I go to Sephora I make a beeline straight to her display, slathering myself in all the amazing things she makes. While I’ve struggled to rationalize the cost of these beauty products in the past, with this discount I’ve got no excuses to hold out any longer.

AMIKA WAND SET
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: My boss raves about this iron, and let me test it out one day before an event. After just one use, I was hooked. I love that it has various barrel sizes to choose from and it never feels like it’s damaging your hair. It’s going to be my early Christmas gift to myself.

TATCHA BESTSELLERS SET
Alex Apatoff, Deputy Style Director: The number one thing I’m taking away from 2016 is that this skincare system has changed everyone on the planet’s life. But I hate splurging on anything I don’t already know I love, so this is the perfect time to use the discount: I’ll nab a gift set and give the products a shot before deciding whether I’m ready to invest in the full-size items.

SK-II SHEET MASKS
Lindy Segal, Style Social Editor: If I had a nickel for every beauty editor who has sung the praises of these masks, I would have bought them long before this sale. Alas, I do not, so now’s the time for me to finally get in on the glowy, gorgeous skin action.

DRUNK ELEPHANT NIGHT SERUM
Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant: Every person I’ve spoken to about this serum tells me two things: Yes, it comes with a hefty price tag, but yes, it’s 100 percen worth it. I’ve been saving my pennies and waiting for Sephora’s sale so I can slather this onto my skin every night.

SLIP SILK PILLOWCASE
Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: I’ve long heard that a great hair day starts in the bedroom — with a silk pillowcase. But I recently learned that cotton pillowcases could be doing a number on the skin on your face as well as your tresses. Since then, I’ve been counting down to all those annual white sales in January to stock up on a silk set — but now that I can get my hands on these hypoallergenic, machine washable cases in the next few days, it looks like my sweet dreams will come true long before the new year.

Jillian Ruffo, Associate Beauty Editor: I’m the first person to admit that my vanity is in desperate need of some good organization. So now’s the time to finally get my hands on an acrylic drawer unit, which will keep my products in order and look great in my bedroom.

LIVING PROOF DRY SHAMPOO
Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: Living Proof’s dry shampoo is my all-time favorite. It extends my blowout longer than any other product I’ve tried (a number of days that’s just too embarrassing to admit!). So while Sephora’s sale is going on, I’m refilling my supply with a cartful (or two) of bottles.
