Spend a Boat Load of Money and this is the Sephora VIB Rouge 2016 Welcome Gift You’ll Get

Another year, and another dollar (or few) later, I’ve qualified for Sephora VIB Rouge again through 2017. And, that means one thing: the VIB Rouge 2016 welcome gift is all mine, and this year it’s a mini NARS blush. If you qualify for VIB Rouge this year or through next year, this is what you will be receiving as well!

VIB Rouge 2016 Welcome Gift

NARS Goulue is a cool toned berry rose with golden shimmer running through it. It is nicely pigmented, soft, and blends easily. The shimmer isn’t overly sparkly or disco ball. In fact, the golden shimmer isn’t that noticeable It just adds a nice subtle healthy glow and makes your skin look radiant.

The color itself looks beautiful on the skin and adds a nice flush to the cheeks without being too intense. The thing I love about NARS blushes is that they’re pigmented, but buildable in layers so one swipe won’t give you Annabelle-esque cheeks. And, if you do go a bit Annabelle overboard, you can easily blend it out because of it’s blendability.

All in all, I think this is a great VIB Rouge welcome gift. I’m glad it’s not another red lipstick, and is something different this time!

  • I was really close to making VIB Rouge one year. Just a few dollars away but the end of the year came way too fast and I missed the deadline. :(

    • Aww boo! I feel like there’s not a huge difference between VIB and VIB Rouge status perks though!

  • That is a beautiful blush! Now it’s making me want to go Rouge, but I have a wedding to think about, lol. I think I could’ve been in Rouge last year too since I spent a lot of money on makeup, however somehow I ended having 2 beauty insider accounts, my main one I have for my VIB status, and then another one from 2007, so the workers would put points on both!


    • Haha congratulations on the wedding! That’s odd, but nice because you got so many points!

  • Erin Russell

    Congratulations on your Rouge Status!! I so wish we had Sephora in the UK, what an amazing gift! Loving your blog too btw, now following on BL too :)


    • Haha thank you, girl! I still can’t believe there isn’t a Sephora in the UK. That needs to change ASAP!

  • Oooh pretty! I’ve actually never seen this shade before! I’m so jelly you guys get so many gifts and perks though, the Sephora “rewards” system here is an absolute joke!

    • I believe it’s a VIB Rouge exclusive! It’s been included in some cheek palettes before, but never on its own. Aww boo!! At least you get those awesome Priceline sales ;)

  • Lol so happy it’s not another red lipstick! Orgasm is one of my all-time favorite blushes. I wish Sephora would do full-sized gifts for Rouge considering how much money we spend!

    • I know, I never really used the red lipsticks we got the past two years. Girl, me too!! I think we should either get a few deluxe sized minis or a full sized gift OR a discount code, which is what I’d prefer lol

  • Such a beautiful color! I honestly think they should give out full size products to Rouge members, but that’s just my thought! Awesome product nonetheless! xo

    • I agree!! I would prefer a discount code or something as well though haha. That way we can just buy what we personally like.

  • Congrats on your Rouge Status! The blush is such a beautiful color, I love it. x


    • Haha thank you! Although I don’t know if I should be happy that I hit rouge status only 4 months into the year :p

  • I love this colour! Sephora really needs to come to the UK, you guys are so lucky to have it :)


  • Dom

    I just picked this up yesterday. Cheers to another year as VIB Rouge NIda! I can’t wait to play with it. The swatch looks very lovely!



  • What an incentive, not that I need one haha. I spend way too much money on there as it is, I’m actually surprised I haven’t qualified yet :)

    I haven’t made Rouge status, but I do have this blush! I believe it’s from one of the holiday palettes and it’s so pretty! Unfortunately, I have a lot of acne marks on my cheeks and this blush is the same color as those scars :( It’s so pretty on other people, but it just emphasizes my acne. Meh, I’m definitely going to save it and use it when my face is more clear though!

    • Yeah I think it was a part of some limited edition palettes before! Aww no :(. Hopefully you can pull it out soon! I know having acne marks sucks so badly!

    Now I want to spend more money just to get hold of that beauty haha. It looks stunning.

  • OOh this is such a beautiful shade! Nars blushes wear so well too. I’ve never had any problems with fallout or fading with any of them. Now I want to go spend $$ to qualify and get my hands on this blush lol.
