Sephora Beauty Pass
Ladies – and gentlemen – if your makeup is looking a lil’ crusty and your moisturiser is way past its expiration date, let this be your sign to take a trip down to beauty heaven – AKA Sephora. And to ease the burden on your wallet, Sephora is giving exclusive deals to all tertiary students who are Beauty Pass members.
Think 10% off on weekdays, admission to special events, and tonnes of freebies to redeem – Sephora isn’t here to play. So if you’re a student on a budget – yes, polytechnic, JC, and university students included – keep on reading to find out more.
Get 10% off & access to exclusive events with your student card
There are tonnes of reasons why you should flex your student card. For one, you get to show off your youth and lack of adulting responsibilities. Here’s another for you – your student card gets you 10% off on weekdays before 6pm at all Sephora stores. That’s right, you no longer have to camp for upcoming sales to score juicy discounts.
All you have to do is sign up for the Sephora Beauty Pass on the Sephora website or in-stores – no minimum spending required as this membership is free to join. Once you’re part of the gang, it’s time to fill your cart up with cult-favourite products like the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ($39) or the Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Gels ($47).

Perks are aplenty when you’re a Sephora Beauty Pass member. Besides the money-saving discounts, you’ll also get access to Beauty Pass Exclusive Events for free. These events cover a range of topics including skincare, haircare, and makeup masterclasses taught by industry experts – none of those dodgy tips you get from social media.
Redeem travel-sized skincare & makeup products
Download the Sephora app to score 40 points; leave a product review to get 5 points.
You’ll also get in on the Rewards Boutique when you’re part of the Sephora squad. With every dollar you spend, you’ll accumulate points which can then be used to redeem travel-sized skincare and makeup products. As you collect more points, you’ll get bumped up the different membership tiers that will entitle you to even more rewards.

For your birthday month, there’ll also be double the points so treat yourself to a much-needed shopping spree. If you’ve been eyeing the mini Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara ($24) or yearning to try the iconic Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb ($35), here’s your chance to – without the commitment of a full product.
You can also repurpose the Love Tint as a lip product.
Or, give your cheeks some lovin’ and try the Benefit Cosmetics Love Tint ($36). This one’s a fiery red sister to the all-time fave Benetint, perfect for those who want to add an extra oomph to their look. Fun fact: the Benetint was actually created for an exotic dancer who needed a product to make her nipples more visible on stage. The more you know!

Skincare fiends, we’ve all heard of the wonders that the PIXI Glow Tonic ($48) and Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($64) have done for many. Snag the travel-sized versions and try it out for yourself – they might even become a skincare staple for you.
If you’re completely new to the beauty world, worry not. Head down to any Sephora store and seek out their Beauty Advisors – they’ll be able to advise you on the best eyeshadow palette or recommend you the perfect foundation shade.
Shop & save with Sephora’s Beauty Pass
It’s time to milk your youth and privileges of being a student. Whether you’ve fallen for the bells and whistles of beauty TikTok hacks or simply wish to restock on your skincare faves, do your bank account a favour and sign up for the Sephora Beauty Pass.
Now you can bid adieu to paying full-price and redeem rad freebies with your points. Plus, you’ll be the ultimate envy of working adults like myself. Slay.
