Exactly How You Should Spend Your Tax Refund This Weekend

Tax season is officially over, which means it’s time to irresponsibly spend your refund on everything you’ve wanted to buy all year. Just in case you haven’t brainstormed a concrete plan, Sephora is here with its Beauty Insider Spring Bonus sale to help you spend all that extra cash.

Starting today, Sephora is offering loyalty members special discounts on everything (minus The Ordinary). That means 15% off the purchase for Rouge, VIB, and Insider members alike. So, if you’ve had a running wish list of products in your head, the time to get ’em is now through April 23. Better hurry, because we bet that Summer Fridays face mask and Fenty Beauty glitter puff will sell out any minute now.

Where’s My Tax Refund?!


When you’re on a budget, you settle for the generic lip balm at the drugstore. But if you have the extra cash for a balm that makes you feel — and look — rich, you splurge. Thanks to this juicy formula’s shea butter, vitamin E, coconut water, and jojoba oil blend, you’re left with softer, brighter lips in just one swipe.

Yves Saint Laurent, $32, available at Sephora


Hydrating mists are nice when you’re hungover or tired at your desk, but they don’t always leave your makeup in pristine condition. A wet spray will do that to you. But this lightweight, blurring powder offers up the cooling effect of a watery mist, just without actually messing with your look.

Becca, $38, available at Sephora


Sometimes dry shampoo just doesn’t cut it. When you want to add body and lift to a limp style, opt for a texturizing foam that leaves your style looking fresh longer.

Ouai, $28, available at Sephora


Not every eye cream is worth holy grail status, but this vitamin C-rich formula is. Your undereye bags may not entirely disappear after smoothing this on, but at least those circles will feel a bit brighter and way more hydrated before tapping on concealer.

Drunk Elephant, $64, available at Sephora


Although this face-smoothing salve looks more like vanity decor than an actual primer, the velvety, thick, putty-like balm melts into your skin like it was always meant to be there. By the time it fully soaks in, you’ll achieve the kind of complexion dreams are made of.

Tatcha, $52, available at Sephora


The secret to a damn good mascara? Cannabis oil, surprisingly. Not only does it leave each lash dramatically black, but it also conditions while it’s on.

Milk Makeup, $24, available at Sephora


If Rihanna’s Instagram demonstration of this glittery puff ball couldn’t convince you to spend money on rose gold body glitter, then maybe the VIB discount will.

FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA, $42, available at Sephora


Just because you’re this close to days that aren’t below 40° doesn’t mean you should stop exfoliating. This lotion gently buffs away dry skin, leaving behind a brighter glow that makes you look alive even if you had way too many carafes of wine last night.

Tarte, $39, available at Sephora


Whether we like to admit it or not, makeup sponges — $20 makeup sponges — are hard to live without. Getting two for, well, the price of two isn’t much of a bargain. But tack on a sale and we have an excuse to buy in bulk.

Beautyblender, $40, available at Sephora


Move over Champagne shimmer, this peach Creamsicle highlighter is THE shade for summer.

Becca, $38, available at Sephora


The one travel-friendly face mask that doesn’t make your entire flight think you’re Michael Myers and transforms dull skin overnight.

Summer Fridays, $48, available at Sephora


If a dry shampoo and sea-salt pomade had a child, it would grow up to be this styling spray. Not only does it add weightless lift to your third-day style, but it also provides the kind of beachy grit you’d normally only find on an actual beach.

VERB, $16, available at Sephora
