I don’t know about anyone else but I am a makeup and beauty addict! I love to play with makeup and I love trying new products, but mostly I love the way good quality products can really enhance natural beauty and make you feel like a MILLION dollars!
The Sephora sale goes on twice a year and it’s the best time to stock up on your tried and true favorites and even grab a few items you have been wanting to try out. So I am listing out my favorites, along with a few things I have been waiting to try out. I am going to break them down by category so it’s as easy to shop as possible!
To take part in this Sephora Sale be sure you are registered as Beauty Insider. Then check on your status, that will depend on when you can start shopping the sale with code: SPRINGSAVE
C Firma Vitamin C Day Serum is one I swear by! If you are new to skin care, a Vitamin C serum is the place to start, and this one wins alllll the awards and is on everyone’s must have list. I stated using it last October and have been loving it. A little goes a LONG way!
Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser is by far the best facial cleanser I have ever used. Has made a big impact for my skin! Again a little goes a long way for this product.
D Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops When I shared a little while back about these bronzi drops I got so many messages that you guys love them too! Lots of you say you apply it instead of face makeup and I can TOTALLY understand that! It gives such great glow to the skin. I mix this in with my moisturizer after my serums. It is one that deserves all the hype it gets!
Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops These are ones I have been wanting to try since I started self tanning. Again these get tons of rave, so I am going to grab them while the sale is going on!
Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 I chatted about this product recently too! I started using it more recently but I am super impressed. Love the lightweight coverage while we’re all at home, and that it has serum properties to improve my overall skin’s texture and appearance. I wear it in the color 5
Airbrush Flawless Foundation One that I have used for longer, and swear by when I need more coverage or more of a full makeup look is this full coverage foundation from Charlotte Tilbury. Full coverage but feels light, doesn’t get overly built up looking and a little goes a LONG way here!! I wear color 3.
Bye Bye Under Eye – This under eye concealer is no joke and mom level exhaustion approved! I never wore too much concealer before Patrick was born, but dang- it is necessary now. This stuff needs a TINY drop and will cover the darkest under eye! I wear color 10
Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact This is the only bronzer I will ever use. As someone very fair, I always feel like everything looks to orange, but this has the softest bronze color. I wear color Bronze 03
NARS Liquid Blush This is one I have been wanting to try! My usual blush from NARS is a powder and no longer available at Sephora, but I have heard incredible things about this one, so I think it’s the time to give it a try and see if it can replace my other one. I am looking to try their cult classic color Orgasm in the Natural Finish
Urban Decay All Nighter Another classic that deserves all the hype it gets. I don’t use this everyday, but anytime I know I need my makeup to last and really stay in place… this stuff is magic!
Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel This is the only product I use on my eyebrows and I cannot talk about it enough. My eyebrows are very light, so without makeup, you cannot see them. This stuff makes my eyebrows look full and dare I say thick! I wear Color Cool Light Blonde 1
Lancome CILS booster This is one I have been wanting to try! Gets tons of rave reviews from long time users. It is supposed to both boost the volume of your eyelashes when applied under mascara AND improve the overall strength and texture of your eyelashes. Since having to stop my eyelash serum I do notice my lashes are more brittle, so this one I am excited and hopeful for!
Sephora Eye Love I also recently spoke about this eye shadow palette. Such amazing quality for the price- really good sizes on each color and all ones I would use. I love the Light Cool palette for my skintone.
GrandeLash MD I cannot speak enough about this product. I used it for about 4 months last year and saw the most incredible results and change in my lashes. WOW! is all I can say. It is not recommended to use when pregnant or breastfeeding but I cannot wait until I can get back to this baby. Grab it while you can get a discount and you will not be disappointed!
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner I never really wore lip liners until recently and now I totally get it. The quality of this is one is amazing and I love the shade “Pillow Talk” and “Iconic Nude” They are both among the most talked about nude lip colors and they deserve the hype! which leads me to tell you that if you have not tried the Pillow Talk matte lipstick, now is the time. It really is the most beautiful nude lipstick and so smooth and hydrating feeling
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask This lip mask is so hydrating- its a total game changer. I wear it day and night and it has changed the texture of my lips. I used to get so dry and cracked, but this stuff is like a miracle in a jar. I have had mine for more than 6 months and still have so much. A little goes a very long way, and it comes with the cutest applicator!
Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick I am a bit of a lip hoarder. I love to play and try out new lip products, mostly because I can never have my lips bare. EVER. This is one I have been wanting to try out- it is raved as a long wear lip that is super hydrating. I am going to try it in the color Lychee Baby which is a soft nude.
Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother and Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil I started testing these products out just over a month ago. While most women rave about thick shiny hair during pregnacy, I do not have such luck and my hair has been breaking and feeling damaged. So I read up on great products to use, and these kept coming up. You need such a small amount you can BARELY see they have even been used after a month, but so far I have noticed that my hair feels smoother, much easier to style, and shiner. Breakage is still there, but let’s be real- I am desperate for a haircut at this point! I will keep you posted on how I am liking these products, but they would be great to grab now during this sale!
Living Proof Dry Volume Blast This is one of those products I forget about because I don’t use it everyday, but with thin, fine hair, any time I need to spruce myself up and get some boost to my hair – this stuff is INCREDIBLE!! It gets so much hype and it is all true.
Hope this is helpful for anyone shopping the sale! So many amazing products, and to grab them while they offer a sale, which does not happen often is amazing!
It goes without saying but I will say it just to be clear. NO ONE NEEDS ALL OF THIS!! Some of these products I buy once a year because they last that long for me. But I also love makeup and trying out new things. Creating this blog and this space also means I want to be a resource for all of you when you are looking for products, which means I want to try more things than the average person would.
So much going on in the world right now, makeup is the least of our concerns, but it is also very fun, and playful and certainly lifts my mood, and I hope even one of these products might lift your mood too.
