sephora sale: makeup, skincare + haircare faves

Shop

It’s been a WHILE since I’ve done a Sephora haul blog post for you guys! BUT the sephora spring savings event just began and I wanted to round up ALL of my beauty favorites in one place for those of you who are shopping, as well as a few new things I bought in the last few weeks and LOVE!

PIN IT

This is the BEST time to not only stock up on your holy grail sephora items but also try out new beauty products since you can get them for up to 20% off (depending on your beauty insider level at sephora!).

I’m going to break down my favorite sephora products by category: makeup, skincare, and hair!

This is a LONG time fave from my makeup bag - been using it for probably 3 years now. I mostly use this (in shade 1) to set up my under eye concealer. It helps to brighten under your eye and keeps your concealer from creasing! You can also apply it with a big fluffy brush all over your face to set your makeup and giving your skin a 'flawless finish'.

This is a new foundation for me - started using it a few weeks ago and it's quickly found its way into my top 3 favorite foundations ever. (It's actually what I'm wearing as I type this post). It feels SO lightweight but somehow conceals all of your blemishes, evens out your skin tone, and makes your skin look radiant! I would say it's a medium coverage foundation but you can layer it on to make it full coverage!

I've been wearing this bronzer for about a year now and it's definitely one of the best cream bronzers out there. It blends in so beautifully - you can use it as an overall bronzer or use it to contour! No need to set - it blends in perfectly all on its own!

Another holy grail makeup product! There are SO many ways you can use flawless filter. I personally love to use it as a primer underneath my foundation because it blurs your imperfections and gives your skin a very subtle glow underneath your foundation. I've gone through probably 5 bottles of this and can't get enough. You could also wear it as a highlight or just on its own as your foundation!

Prior to finding this eyelash curler, curling my eyelashes was a hard NO for me. And then I found this one and it is MAGIC. This lash curler truly makes it look like you just got a lash lift and instantly opens up your eyes! It also doesn't get your lashes stuck in there and it's very easy to use. Anytime you guys ask me 'omg how are your lashes so long' I really think this lash curler is the secret.

This is a new purchase for me because Patrick Ta just launched it and it's now in my top 5 favorite lip products / one I have in my purse at ALL times! I loved it so much I literally bought it in 3 colors! It's plumping, hydrating, and gives you the most pillowy soft lips ever. I was also shocked at how long it lasts considering its a gloss! You need this for sure.

I LOVE applying this eye cream before doing my makeup! It hydrates underneath your eyes, brightens, and gives you the most dewy subtle glow. It feels AMAZING. Also helps your concealer to go on flawlessly!

I've been using this lash serum for 6 months now (ever since I got my lash extensions off) and I cannot believe how LONG and healthy this has made my lashes. I apply every single night. I've tried a few different lash serums and this one has definitely given me the best results.

shop now 

 

I am very loyal to my skincare, especially when it comes to moisturizers. I have 2 or 3 I rotate between and this is one of them (and has been for over a year now). It's called a mask but I use it as a nightly moisturizer that hydrates, plumps, and brightens your skin with THD ascorbate (vitamin C), antioxidant-rich superberries, squalane, and hyaluronic acid. You wake up with brighter and more glowy, hydrated skin!

shop now 

 

This is a new sephora find for me that I've used 3 or 4 times now and LOVE. It's so amazing on those nights when your skin feels like it needs a little TLC - maybe you're stressed or haven't been sleeping well or your skin feels super sensitive. This overnight mask helps to sooth and calm your skin - reducing redness and evening out your skin tone texture!

shop now 

 

Okay I have tried almost ALL OF THE LIP MASKS a human can try and this one is hands down my #1 pick! Like times 100. Has hyaluronic acid in it, it's hydrating, plumping, and almost cooling upon application. I love that it's not sticky and seriously feels SO amazing on your lips! It supports natural collagen production for lips that look bigger and better with continued use.

I've been loyal to oribe gold lust for about 7 years now. But I gave this one a try when Oribe released it a few months ago and I love it just as much as gold lust if not more !! It smells AMAZING and it's formulated to help strengthen hair that is stressed or damaged. I rotate between this one and gold lust and my hair has never felt stronger!

shop now 

 

I use this spray EVERY time i wash my hair. It's a heat protectant, it detangles and the best part is it actually speeds up your drying time! Sign me up for that. It's truly an all-in-one styling spray!!

shop now 

 

I love this treatment when I feel like my split ends could use some TLC haha. You can use it every time you wash your hair to help strengthen your hair and prevent split ends! It's helped me be able to go longer in between trims!

shop now 

 

This product is actually in my cart right now because I've heard amazing things about it! It's a serum you actually use before washing that clarifies and soothes the scalp for stronger, shinier, longer, healthier-looking hair. It cleanses the scalp of buildup and debris which I definitely need!

shop now 

 

Another product I plan on purchasing during the sale after hearing so many amazing reviews about it! It's only $28 for an intense, nourishing, transformative leave-in treatment designed to repair and smooth weak, ultra-damaged, over-processed hair with a silky finish. You put it on damp hair to protect against heat damage. The no-rinse formula restores softness and shine to damaged hair without build up!

shop now 

I started using this mask about 3 months ago and it is hands down THE most effective hair mask I have ever used. I was hesitant to spend $75 on a hair mask but the results are more than worth it. You actually apply it after you get out of the shower (after you've only shampooed in the shower). Apply it, let it sit for 4 minutes before you apply other products or brush through. It is a leave-in treatment mask for all hair types that clinically reverses damage in four minutes (literally). The patented peptide technology works to repair damage from bleach, color, chemical services, and heat, restoring strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce to hair. My hair has never felt healthier and I think a lot of that is a result from this mask. Helps with damage, split ends, and breakage. Definitely worth the splurge ESPECIALLY if you can get it on sale!

shop now 

Okay I could go on forever haha but don’t want to overwhelm you guys! I will be sharing more on my stories throughout the sale so make sure to check there for videos of some of these products in action!

Thanks for reading!
