Sephora Private Sale (Members)
Expected Upcoming Sale: Periodic
The Sephora Private Sale is also referred to as the "Sephora Black & Gold Sale" as it's only open to Sephora Beauty Pass members of the Black and Gold levels.
(At Sephora, the more you spend, the higher your membership level; Black members spend in excess of $300 per year, and Gold members spend over $1500 per year.)
In September 2018, the Sephora Private Sale involved 20% off (with codes), plus there was an opportunity for Gold Members to score a FREE laptop case worth over $120!
You can shop the sale online, in store or via the Sephora app.
Sephora Mid-Year Sale

The 2019 sale includes hundreds of heavily reduced items, including heaps of gear that is totally ready to gift - like the heavenly Tarte Flamingo Brushes. The sale kicked off with up to 50% across the board, with discounts getting even bigger as the sale ticks along. For beauty fanatics, this is one sale you don't want to miss!

Sephora Black Friday Sale
Upcoming Sale: 29th November, 2019
At Sephora Black Friday events always kick off at midnight on Black Friday, so this is a sale you'll need to stay awake for if you want to snaffle those popular items before they sell out - which they do!
In 2018, Black Friday Offers included 15% off sitewide, with no code needed.
Black Friday deals almost always carry over to Cyber Monday at Sephora for one big weekend of beauty bargains.
Sephora Boxing Day Sale
Upcoming Sale: 26th December, 2019
This sale event is also called the Sephora End-Of-Season Sale, and traditionally commences before Christmas and runs throughout the first week of January.
This sale tends not to apply sitewide, but rather to a select group of products, and the best discount is usually 30%.
Free Samples at Sephora

Here's some very good news for beauty fans who don't want to pay for their goodies in one hit: Sephora accepts Afterpay!
What is Afterpay?
