Sephora VIB Rouge

Okay so Sephora has yet another membership tier to warp our minds to spend more.  Yea they got me.  In my last Sephora online purchase I was asked If I would like to join.  I didn't know what it was I qualified, it was free, what the hey.  As long as it wasn't a credit card I assume I would be fine.  (Oh my give me strength that I don't sign up for the sephora credit card.)

According to Sephora ( VIB Rouge launched on July 23, 2013. If you spent $1,000 in 2013 by July 23, 2013, you qualified for VIB Rouge status.  Yikes did I really spend $1,000 dollars at Sephora.  Whoa I think I found my New Years Resolution.
I got a lovely black box amoungst my order.  It welcomed my to VIB Rouge and stated the benfits of this membership:
  • • Free Shipping on all orders
  • • Unlimited access to the Beauty Studio
  • • Exclusive invitations to Rouge-Only Events
  • • Special seasonal surprise gifts
  • • Access to a Rouge Concierge

It also came with a tiny tube of Bite Beauty lipstick in a color exclusively made for VIB Rouge,  (Really?)  So as you can see from the picture it's a very warm red color I am thinking borderline orange.  Its a statin finish, smells and tastes sweet which I have noticed is a staple for Bite lipsticks.  It's okay,  If I way this color every I will run out of this stuff.  The tube is that small.

So if you are a VIB Rouge, Congratulations! For those who are just VIB's,  I recommend to stay.  You can get a better size sample of lipstick with your point perks. It's really the same thing,  yes it's free shipping but it's really only beneficial for homebodied online shoppers, like me.  I won't go to these exclusive events, crowds are scary! My opinion,  it's not worth it.  The VIB Rouge benefits need to be far better than the regular VIB.   Here are my suggestions.
  • Deluxe size samples with every order.
  • Full Size product point perks
  • Send us special codes for access to buy new products before anyone else
  • Discounts!  crazy Crazy CrAzY discounts!
  • VIB Sales and gift cards should be slightly better for Rouge members. (maybe add 10.  Make it a 30 dollar gift card instead 20 OR make it a 30% discount instead of 20%)
