Did I mention they're all on sale?

Calling all savvy shoppers: Sephora is having a huge sale that's too good to pass up. The retailer's Savings Event officially kicked off on October 27 and runs through November 6, meaning you can score your favorite luxury beauty brands at a major discount, just before the holidays come around, too.

Here's how the sale works: Using the code TIMETOSAVE, Sephora Rouge members can access the sale during its entire duration and earn 20 percent off. Sephora VIB and Beauty Insider members can access the sale starting on October 31, however, VIB members earn 15 percent off whereas Insider members earn 10 percent off. As an added bonus, everyone will earn free shipping, no code required, regardless of member status.

This sale is truly a special one. Sephora Beauty Director Melinda Solares explains that this sale happens just twice a year, is open to all Beauty Insider members, and comes at the perfect time to restock your favorite products or get a headstart on your holiday shopping. "Here's the really cool part—you can literally snag the deals right from your couch using Same Day Delivery, order online, and pick it up in-store," she adds. "I personally love Same Day Delivery because it allows for more self-care time in my day to focus on me!"

While it's a great time to stock up on your beauty must-haves, I'd argue it's an even better time to start your holiday shopping with Sephora's gift sets. From top brands like Summer Fridays, Charlotte Tilbury, Living Proof, and more, these sets are a crazy good value made all the better with the sale. To make your shopping a bit easier (there's a whopping 784 value and gift sets, by the way) we took the pleasure of rounding up the very best of the best. From skincare, makeup, haircare, and more, these are the Sephora gift sets that are actually worth adding to your cart.
