summer sephora haul!

Shop

you guys probably know by now that my sephora obsession comes & goes in waves haha. i’ll go months without buying anything and then all at once i’ll buy a million new things to try out! i bought a ton of new stuff this month so i wanted to review which items i have been LOVING and wearing constantly!

i probably sound like a broken record at this point about this highlight kit but it is WORTH ALL THE HYPE and more! i love ALL 4 shades in this palette and use each one of them depending on the occasion or what type of look i'm going for. truly makes your skin GLOW like from across the room, without looking glittery! i get compliments on my skin every time i wear this palette!

my current favorite blush and what i've been wearing 24/7 in the shade 'pinch me pink'. it's a beautiful cream blush and this pink shade is so cute + perfect for summer! i apply mine with a damp beauty blender!

this under eye brightener has become a must not only in my makeup routine but also on 'no makeup' days! it's a makeup-skincare hybrid formula that brightens the under-eye area by targeting dark circles and dullness for brightness that lasts up to 24 hours! it's creamy and almost feels like just applying a hydrating eye cream, but it's also helping to brighten dark circles. i love wearing this on its own OR underneath my under eye concealer if i'm wearing makeup that day! it also helps to plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!

i first bought this foundation about a year ago so i was just restocking it this month! it's my favorite foundation to wear in the summer because it's lightweight + light-reflecting, giving you that naturally glowy dewy skin look! it's also kind of a makeup-skincare-hybrid that quickly blurs and smooths while visibly improving skin’s clarity over time!

shop now 

 

i have a major weakness for any plumping lip balm...especially when it also has hyaluronic acid. this one isn't sticky at all and you can wear it as a gloss or as an everyday balm! makes your lips look and feel so hydrated + smooth!

shop now 

 

i loved the look + feel of this shiny sheer lipstick so much i ended up buying in 3 colors! it's so moisturizing and perfect for summer because it looks really effortless and natural, but still gives your lips the perfect amount of color! it's hydrating, plumping, and comes in the prettiest colors!

shop now

this is another blush i tried out and really loved! you kill two birds with one stone with this blush because it's a blush and highlight all in one! if i had to pick ONE it think i like the makeup by mario cream blush more...but if you're looking to simplify your makeup routine or don't want to travel with both a blush and highlight...then you will love this one because it really does both in one step!

shop now 

 

obviously i am on a blush kick right now haha. i'd heard SO many great things about this cream blush stick and was not disappointed! i tried it in a few colors and my favorite was 'naughty n spice'. i love that it has a brush applicator on the other side of the stick. its super creamy and blends really nicely! i love this stick too because you can also use it on your eyes, cheeks, and lips too to create a monochromatic look!

shop now 

 

another lip balm situation i am OBSESSED with / have been wearing everyday! it's packed with peptides and vitamin C - clinically proven to visibly plump, smooth, and reduce lip lines while locking in moisture—quickly and over time with a clear glossy finish! feels AMAZING on and i love the subtle apple flavor!

shop now 

 

okay i splurged on the dyson airstrait and i gotta say...i love it. i wasn't sure i would love it because when i blow dry my hair...it naturally dries pretty straight. BUT if i don't like really round brush it out (which takes a while) it's kinda just 'kinky' haha not totally straight but also not curly. so i love that the dyson airstrait gives you that super smooth straight hair in one step - you dry and straighten it all at once and it is SO dang easy to use. i went from damp hair to dry smooth straight hair in about 7 minutes with this!

shop now 

 

another plumping lip gloss i'm loving! it almost feels like an oil when you put it on but not sticky at all! i love that it has avocado oil in it which is a lipid-rich emollient, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant with vitamins A and E. i have this in the shade 'free palomas' and love!

shop now 

 

in the summer i don't love to wear foundation everyday (or really, any season haha) so i LOVE this skin tint on days when you want some coverage + smoothness without applying a full face of makeup. it's super lightweight and helps to blur, hydrate and reduce redness for a natural-looking, fresh-faced glow!

shop now 

 

i have been LOVING this setting powder in the shade 'lavender' to brighten my under eyes and set my concealer! this finishing powder helps to perfect and extend makeup wear, whether you're applying under your eyes or all over!

shop now 

probably my favorite brush of all time for applying foundation and only $30! i love that the bristles are really densely packed so the BRUSH itself isn't absorbing all the makeup, but able to seamlessly apply to your face for the most smooth and even coverage.

shop now 

new perfume i have been LOVING!! if you love more woodsy, gender neutral type of scents you will love this one! earthy and woodsy is the best way i know how to describe the scent but i love it so much and get compliments on it every time i wear it!

shop now 

thanks for reading! hope you all have the best weekend!!
