Spring has sprung and so has Sephora’s Spring Savings Event. If you’re in search of something to get you excited for the beautiful season ahead, look no further than this massive beauty sale. It’s an event all of us makeup, hair and skincare junkies rush to, and where we burn a hole through our pockets but try not to think about it.

I actually already shopped the sale (shoutout to my fellow Rouge members!) because I was that pumped to add new products to my cabinets, just in time for spring. I haven’t splurged at Sephora for quite some time, but this event got me excited to buy from beauty brands I’ve never tried before, like Milk Makeup and Laura Mercier. I also got to revisit a couple of classics, including Clinique and Benefit Cosmetics. I think I’m tapped out for the rest of the sale, but at this point, there could be a round three for me because the discounts are simply too irresistible.

Pro tip: Be sure to take advantage of Sephora’s same-day delivery and buy online and pick up in-store options. If you don’t want to wait forever or run around the store trying to find everything, these are huge time-savers. I did same-day delivery and got my order hassle-free and just a few short hours later.

Regardless of how you get to the sale, it’s rare to come across such big discounts on top brands, so get ready to shop ’til you drop (or until you’ve blown through Friday’s paycheck). But enough of the chit-chat—we’re here to give you all of the important deets so you don’t miss out.

From April 1 through April 11, Beauty Insiders get to save big bucks both in-store and online. However, if you’re not a Sephora member, sign up here to take advantage of the laundry list of benefits (don’t worry, it’s completely free to join!). Between a complimentary birthday gift, Beauty Insider Cash and more, you’re definitely going to want to snatch some serious savings with this membership.

For those who are already Beauty Insiders, here’s how the sale works:

  • Rouge Members: Take 20 percent off from April 1 through April 11
  • VIB Members: Take 15 percent off from April 5 through April 11
  • Insider Members: Take 10 percent from April 7 through April 11

Remember to enter promo code SAVESPRING at checkout to score these discounts. Just when you thought Sephora was done handing you sweet deals, also use code FREESHIP to secure complimentary shipping on your order. Additionally, score 30 percent off of all Sephora Collection products from April 1 through April 11—no code needed.

May the odds be ever in your favor, because the retailer seriously is not holding back with this sale event. Snap up the best of the best, including NuFACE, Tatcha, Charlotte Tilbury and even Dyson. Yup, you heard that right—Dyson is taking part in the sale, too. Because the brand’s hair tools are already selling like hotcakes, be sure to have your wallet ready and shop as early as you possibly can. Trust us, waking up at the crack of dawn will be so worth it once you’ve checked out with a Dyson Airwrap, Selena Gomez’s favorite moisturizer and Hailey Bieber’s must-have face sculpting tool in hand.

So, what are you waiting for? There’s no better way to celebrate spring than to treat yourself to a bunch of new beauty products. Get saving and do it fast, before beloved products sell out in a pinch. If you’re unsure of where to start, shop the seven items I actually bought from the sale, as well as six other fan favorites.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey Sephora

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey 

Clinique’s Black Honey lipstick has been sitting on my wishlist ever since it went viral. Finally, it’s time to see if it’s worth all the hype, and I can confirm that it most definitely is. I’m not a fan of wearing anything on my lips—unless it’s my ride-or-die Aquaphor chapstickbut this lipstick has earned my stamp of approval and I’ve already worn it a couple of times. I love that it’s subtle, not sticky and makes my lips look like I just ate a strawberry popsicle.

Dr.Jart+ Cryo Rubber Mask in Brightening Vitamin C

I originally got this Dr.Jart+ product sent to me by the brand, but knew I had to restock during the Sephora sale. This cryo rubber mask feels so cooling on my skin and doesn’t slip and slide everywhere. I especially am a fan of the vitamin C-packed version, since I noticed it helped fade some of my post-acne spots.

I kept hearing about this cult-favorite loose setting powder, so I finally caved. I’ve never tried a loose powder, but this one seems like it’ll help mattify my naturally very oily complexion.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Shadow in Rose Gold

This purchase comes at the recommendation of my sister. During a trip together, she applied this creamy formula to her lids and couldn’t stop talking about how easy it was to use. As someone who doesn’t really touch eyeshadow, I figured this quick stick might finally convert me. I’ve used it once so far and definitely understand what my sister was talking about.

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Setting + Refreshing Spray

This wasn’t in my initial cart, but I went back onto Sephora’s site just to buy this setting spray by Milk Makeup. My friend told me about how she spritzes it onto her face mask and there’s very little transfer afterward. I’m sold on anything that’ll help preserve some of my precious KN95 masks.

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Super Setter Pore-Minimizing Setting Spray Sephora

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Super Setter Pore-Minimizing Setting Spray

I got the mini-size bottle of this Benefit setting spray because I had heard from a friend that it works wonders for preventing your makeup from budging. And since I’m already a fan of the iconic Benefit POREfessional primer, I have a good feeling about this spray.

Shiseido Eyelash Curler 

It’s been forever since I last used an eyelash curler because I simply gave up on them for a while. I have the most stubborn straight lashes in the world and think this curler could be a game-changer.
