Sephora VIB Rouge 2016 Welcome Gift: NARS Blush in Goulue

No, I did not spend $1,000 at Sephora within the first 2 weeks of January. That would only happen if I won the lottery.

I hit the VIB Rouge tier in mid-December of last year (still, oops). My local Sephora had run out of welcome kits by then (a mini Marc Jacobs lipstick), so I was able to redeem the 2016 version instead.

This year’s VIB Rouge Welcome Kit features a mini NARS blush in Goulue–a cool-toned berry pink shade. Fun fact: goulue means “gluttonous” in French.

The 2016 VIB Rouge Welcome Kit includes:

  • Explanation of VIB Rouge benefits
  • Beauty Studio All-Access Pass
  • “A Taste of the VIB Rouge Life” — a 45-minute makeover voucher for a friend
  • NARS Blush in Goulue (0.14 oz)

Unlike the VIB welcome gift, there are no coupons for 10% off or free shipping–not that I need to spend any more money at Sephora, obviously.

Sephora VIB Rouge 2016 Welcome Gift - NARS Blush in Goulue

I’ve been really into blushes lately and I love NARS, so I’m very happy with this little gift! I also expect it to last much longer than any mini lipstick would, especially considering that the full-sized NARS blush is only slightly larger at 0.16 oz.

Here’s the swatch:

What do you guys think of the blush? Do you have a favorite blush, or are you more of a bronzer person?

  1. OMG I want it!!! If only I had the money to spend on makeup!!! I can only spend a little at a time and I doubt I could reach the VIB any time soon, sigh. But hey a girl can dream! Lovely post!

    1. Thank you! I was actually quite surprised when I hit the VIB level, then the holidays came around and I ended up splurging during the VIB sale (20% everything) and Black Friday. The tab at Sephora just runs up so quickly… It’s definitely one of my goals this year to save money and NOT hit Rouge again haha
