As a beauty blogger who is skin, hair & beauty obsessed, I have tested & tried SO MANY PRODUCTS. Keep reading if you want to find out my favorite hair, skin, beauty, fragrance, & tools in the sale!
My top products:
If you know me, you know I am obsessed with my hair looking shiny, thick, & voluminous. For anybody wanting the same, look no further because the Sephora Sale is coming in clutch with some top products. The hair products I use religiously are:
amika Perk Up Talc-Free Dry Shampoo – *Clean* I love the smell and how it doesn’t feel gross in my hair. *Don’t bother with the Perk Up Plus dry shampoo- its more expensive and doesn’t do any more than this one.
K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Molecular Hair Repair Value Set – Full-Size Repair Mask & Free Travel Detox Shampoo – This is a great time to get the K18 mask on sale!! This set comes with the Detox Shampoo too! Full review here.
COLOR WOW Extra Mist-ical Shine Spray – You can fake healthy hair with this stuff! It makes your hair look so shiny and beautiful!
IGK Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Anti-Frizz Smoothing Spray – If you struggle with any frizz you need this. It makes you look like you’ve gotten a Brazilian blowout and lasts for days!
When it comes to beauty products, Sephora has no competition. From the perfect shade of foundation to the latest & greatest highlighter, Sephora has it all. I was especially
Sephora Favorites Vacay All Day Beauty Value Set– Sephora’s gift sets are always a great way to test new products and this one has SO MANY of my must-have items! Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Sunshine Drops, Tower 28 Beauty SOS Daily Facial Spray (full size), OUAI St.Barts Scalp & Body Scrub, Supergoop! Glowscreen, & more!
Primer: Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer – This has been my go-to primer for 5 years. I’ve tried them all and I keep coming back to this. It makes my skin look SO smooth- but it isn’t mattifying so it still lets your natural glow shine through. It has zinc so it’s great for acne-prone skin and it’s just SO SO GOOD.
Caliray SO Blown Blurring Collagen Peptide Primer- *Clean* I’ve been testing this primer and I love it! I love that it’s clean and it keeps your makeup in place but still makes your skin look beautiful.
Foundation: If I had to pick one must-have makeup product it would be foundation. I LOVE FOUNDATION. I have way too many to list here so I had to really work to narrow it down for you haha.
Full coverage: On days when I need my makeup to not budge I reach for one of these two. They are a little mattifying so if you want glow you’ll need a highlighter on top. These create a super even base so you can hide any pigmentation from dark or redness and then you can add color on top.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Matte Foundation
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
Medium Coverage: When my acne is under control I love to wear lighter-weight foundations. These are my favorite glowy/ natural/ luminous foundations.
Haus Labs – *Clean* I got this at the last Sephora sale and OMG it’s stunning!! It seriously makes your skin look so glowy and beautiful. If you’re oily you may not love it but I’m combo and I do just fine. It has so many color options so you’re definitely going to find a match.
Kosas Revealer Skin-Improving Foundation SPF 25- *Clean* Another new foundation i’m LOVING. It makes my skin look so beautiful!
Concealer: Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer – This is hands down my favorite concealer. It’s full coverage yet lightweight. Beautiful finish.
Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Longwear Concealer – This is *SUPER* full coverage. Not as lightweight as the Dior. More of a matte finish. Used to be my go-to before I discovered the Dior. Similar coverage to Shape Tape but unlike Shape Tape this isn’t drying!
Setting Powder: After foundation, I ALWAYS apply setting powder. It helps my makeup stay in place and look flawless. I have tried way too many setting powders to count but I tossed many of my old ones because they had Talc. The two that I’m sharing below are Talc-free and give you the best finish!
ILIA Soft Focus Finishing Powder – *Clean* – This finishing powder is great at blurring fine lines/ pores and setting makeup. I love the travel-friendly case too.
bareMinerals Original Mineral Veil Pressed Setting Powder – *Clean* – I love to use this one under my eyes because it really smooths everything out! I keep one of these in my purse at all times because its packaging is really convenient and it keeps my oily skin in check.
Bronzer: LYS Beauty No Limits Cream Bronzer and Contour Stick – *Clean* Please try this cream bronzer! It is so blendable and easy to use- I am obsessed with it.
ILIA NightLite Bronzer Powder – *Clean* This is a beautiful matte finish bronzer. I love the color range!
Blush: bareMinerals Gen Nude Blonzer Blush – *Clean* my favorite glowy blushes!
Highlighter: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette – This makes your skin look like it’s naturally glowing- not like you just put glitter on. I use my face powder brush on all 3 colors and brush it all over my cheeks, forehead, and nose.
Mascara: ILIA Limitless Lash Lengthening Clean Mascara – *Clean* – Truly one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. Zero fall out. Zero clumps- just SO GOOD. Makes my lashes look so long!
Kosas The Big Clean Longwear Volumizing + Lash Care Mascara – *Clean* I started testing this one and it’s amazing! Makes my lashes look so long & full!
Eyelash Curler – I’ve had this for years! The best of the best!
GrandeLASH – MD Lash Enhancing Serum -I tested this on one eye and tried LiLash’s Serum on the other. This made my lashes just as long!! It didn’t irritate my eyes and I love the tube applicator. Lash serums make such a difference- I recommend them to EVERYONE.
Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer – I wear this every day to brighten my dark eyelids but it’s also an amazing eyeshadow primer! if you are prone to creasing you will LOVE this.
Lips: Kosas Wet Lip Oil – If you try one lip product this time around you have to try this one! It’s my lastest obsession! It’s not oily, more of a gloss but not sticky either. Truly amazing.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner – This is the best lip liner ever. It doesn’t budge!
bareMinerals Mineralist Lasting Lip Liner – *Clean* I have this in color Cherished Rose and at first I thought it was too dark but I tried it with a lighter lipstick and WOW it makes the most beautiful fall/ winter lip combo! Absolutely STUNNING. It isn’t as long-lasting as Charlotte but I like that it is clean.
tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump – *Clean* Makes my lips look so glossy! The plumping doesn’t sting like other plumping products.
SEPHORA COLLECTION #LIPSTORIES Lipstick – I have the color Oui and it is one of the best pink/ nudes I own! I love the satin finish.
Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze Extreme Hold Laminated-Look Sculpting Wax– Nothing has made my brows stick up until this! It’s amazing! I found a clean drugstore dupe HERE.
As a beauty blogger, I am so fortunate to be able to test and try a ton of skincare products so I can genuinely advise the best of the best. With that, I think we can all agree that skincare can get pricey fast. If you are looking to save some money and still treat yourself to some of the best skincare products on the market, this list will be a game-changer for you:
Fresh Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator– *Clean* I just started testing products from the brand fresh and WOW. I love this exfoliant- it’s scrubby but then it turns into a really smooth treatment mask.
Fresh Rose Face Mask– *Clean* This mask is SO soothing and hydrating. My skin was so reactive this winter and this mask got me through it.
The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream– *Clean* Using retinol near your eyes can seem scary but trust me, you’ll be glad you use it once you start seeing the results. This one is affordable and super effective!
Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask– This is my favorite mask for acne. It isn’t drying unlike most acne masks- and it makes my skin clear up so fast!
TAN-LUXE THE FACE Illuminating Self-Tan Drops– *Clean* This is my go-to for tanning my face. I mix it in with my serums and it gives me a streak-free natural-looking tan! I use the color medium/ dark- I recommend it because you can always add more or fewer drops depending on the color you want.
Drunk Elephant D-Bronz Anti-Pollution Bronzing Drops with Peptides– *Clean* Speaking of adding some color- this could be considered skincare & makeup. They are bronzing drops that add the most beautiful temporary glow. Just add to your moisturizer or SPF! They’re great for days when you don’t want makeup but still need some color. They also have antioxidants so they protect your skin from the daily elements! If you want to look naturally tan and glowy this is a must!
LAWLESS Forget The Filler Overnight Lip Plumping Mask– *Clean* I LOVE this overnight lip mask. It’s better than the Laneige one- it’s a little plumping (but doesn’t sting) and you’ll wake up with super-hydrated lips!
Mario Badescu Silver Powder– this is my blackhead secret weapon. You literally just apply it with a damp cloth to your clogged areas, let it dry for a few minutes, and wipe it off. Your pores will look FLAWLESS.
I hope this helps give you a map to the best of the best at the Sephora Savings Event! DM me if you have any questions or need product advice! Happy Shopping!
