Sephora Secret 100 Point Perks List

Many people know about Sephora’s 500 point perks page, it shows all the past perks and the ones still in stock that are often missing from the normal perks area. If not here’s the link to the 500 point perks.

For some reason Sephora doesn’t keep a page for the 100 point perks. Once they are showcased, they disappear and are almost impossible to find. This post is to help link you (and me) to all the 100 point perks, past and present. I will do my best to keep this list up to date, but feel free to let me know if one is out of stock or if there is one I’m missing. I will keep the list of in stock and sold out separated because sold out perks do come back occasionally.

It’s never too early for discount makeup deals! All the best brands join in the fun, Tarte, Urban Decay, Too Faced, even Mac, Nars and Marc Jacob. There are a few that will be exclusive to Sephora, Ulta or the brands website. Tarte always puts out high value and exclusives, this year is no different, the theme is “Sweet Dreams”. Ugh, just take all my money!

Kiss and Bell – Deluxe Lipsurgance  Lip Set $34

Bon Voyage Collector’s Set – $59

Tarte - Bon Voyage Collector's Set And Travel Bag

One of the best deals around and the most perfect gift of the season. The value of this set is unreal, I purchased 2 of their large sets (like this) last year, gifted one and kept one for myself. This one is a Sephora exclusive and sold out long before December last year, so don’t wait or you will miss out! This amazing set has:

Tarte - Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush PaletteTarte - Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette

This palette makes me want to go on vacation, and take this with me…what a nice gift, for me! They also included 2 hair pins, although I have no idea why!?!? Last year the blush set came with a cute cuff bracelet, that at least had value. This is a Sephora exclusive and the colors included are:

– 5 x 0.158 oz Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes in exclusive shades: breathless (pinky beige), embraced (plummy rose), whimsy (light pink), bashful (rosy peach) and irreplaceable (mauve rose)

Sweet Dreams Best Sellers Collection – $19

sweet dreams best-sellers collection

This is a great budget friendly gift and includes the best of Tarte’s best skincare and cream blush. This limited-edition set features:
• deluxe maracuja C-brighter™ eye treatment
• deluxe maracuja oil
• deluxe cheek stain in dreamer (pinky nude)

Brushed with Destiny Bamboo Brush Set – $44

brushed with destiny set of 5 bamboo brushes & makeup bag

This brush set is an awesome value, but I hate duel ended brushes so I will pass on this one. If you don’t mind that then snap this up, at $44 for 5 brushes this is drugstore pricing for high end brushes! The limited-edition set features:
• contourtionist™ bamboo cream blush & contour brush
• the balancing act™ bamboo foundation brush
• the buffer™ airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush
• double-ended bamboo eyeshadow brush
• undercover lover™ bamboo concealer brush
• limited-edition collector’s brush & makeup bag

There is also a eyelash curler set with a mini mascara, but the mini “pears” all over the handle just looks uncomfortable to use and I didn’t feel like post it, haha!  There should be a few more sets showing up at Ulta, but they aren’t showing up on the website just yet. I’ll be sure to update this post if I come across anything new.

*Update: So just after I posted this Ulta posted their Tarte holiday items, all are listed above except this one…

Petite Treats 12 Days of Tarte – $37

This was a big hit last year and there was speculation that it would be at a higher price point, but at just $37 this will sell out fast. Also rush over now because there is also a gift with purchase with this set.
