my latest sephora haul

Shop

About a month ago, I decided it was time to refresh my makeup drawer (and some skincare products too). I had lots of items on my Sephora wishlist I wanted to try out – both for myself and to review for you guys! I loved almost everything I bought, and a few things I probably wouldn’t buy again. So, today I want to share with you guys both the products I now can’t live without, as well as the few I probably won’t be repurchasing!

I wear this in shade 5.5! This is actually the foundation I'm wearing as I write this post - just cozy at home in loungewear, kind of a no makeup makeup kind of day! I love this foundation for when I want something that looks and feels very natural, but I still want some coverage! It honestly feels like you are wearing nothing - so lightweight, but still gives your skin some added smoothness and hydration! I've tried tons of tinted moisturizers and this is definitely a new favorite. Like I said - I like it for kind of natural no makeup kind of days (or just running errands) but if you are someone who prefers a light coverage foundation, this could definitely be your go-to foundation!

I shared this primer on my IG stories a few weeks ago and this is definitely one I will be repurchasing! I've honestly been so impressed with lots of Becca products recently and will for sure be trying out more. This primer gives you that 'lit from within' kind of glow and also makes your makeup go on really smooth. This primer blurs your imperfections and illuminates your skin so it's honestly beautiful on it's own OR underneath foundation! I have tried out countless primers and this one by Becca is definitely in my top 3!

I wear this in shade medium!You guys know how obsessed I am with pretty much any Charlotte Tilbury product haha so I was really excited to try out this setting powder. I'd previously used the flawless finish powder and didn't love how it looked under my eyes. This powder however is specifically designed to set your under eye concealer and it works SO WELL! I actually like it a lot more than the flawless finish powder! This powder sets and illuminates your makeup and makes your skin look so smooth! You can use under your eyes or you can apply over your entire face after you have foundation on.

One of my new favorite moisturizers FOR SURE. it hydrates and plumps your skin all at the same time because it has hyaluronic acid in it! This has been a go-to for me in the winter when my skin is really dry! Pro tip: apply to damp skin for the hyaluronic acid to really work its magic.

This setting spray will legit make your makeup last ALL day long. I spray in an X motion and then a T motion after I've applied all my makeup and notice a huge difference in how long my makeup stays on + stays looking fresh! It also feels so hydrating and refreshing.

I don't know about you but I very much prefer a full coverage foundation. BUT - I don't want it to look cakey or creasy. This one by Wander is FOR SURE a new regular in my makeup bag! It's full coverage but still looks so natural and truly makes your skin glow! It stays on all day long and makes your skin look so smooth and flawless!

YTTP is honestly one of my all time favorite skincare brands. They are cruelty free & use only clean ingredients but their products WORK. I've been using this mask probably 3-4 nights a week as my nighttime moisturizer. It has vitamin C AND hyaluronic acid in it so you will wake up with brighter more hydrated and glowy skin! I legit noticed a difference in my skin after one use!

Wearing this in the shade 'pillow talk' in all these pics and honestly if you buy ONE THING from this sephora haul...it should be this. It has hyaluronic acid in it which will help with anti-agining and plumping. It hydrates your lips while also giving beautiful color. I am OBSESSED with this and want it in every color!

Told y'all - I am currently hooked on Becca products! This bronzer gives the PERFECT bronzed glow without being TOO dark or too glittery! It looks so natural and makes you look & feel like you just got back from the beach!

The only products I’ve bought from sephora lately that I probably would not repeat…

Marc Jacobs concealer – I thought this was fine but didn’t really conceal my dark circles enough! I like my tarte shape tape a lot better so I probably won’t be repurchasing this!

Tan luxe body butter – I liked this lotion a-lot. BUT…I tried Lux Unfiltered a few weeks later and liked it WAY more. Tan luxe faded a little splotchy IMO and tan luxe I liked 10x more for 100 more reasons which you can read about in this post.
