Today is the day to shop the Sephora Sale! Rouge Members, VIBs, and Beauty Insiders can all save up to 30% off at Sephora. If you missed it last week, I shared a post with everything you need to know about the Sephora sale. Over the weekend, I shared a TON of Instagram Stories of reader-requested product recommendations. I saved them all to this highlight if you want to take a look!
Today, I’m going to share my makeup must-haves, winter skincare saviors, the full list of everything I bought, as well as a few gift items to consider. Ready to shop? Let’s get to it!
My Makeup Must-Haves
Saie Hydrabeam Concealer | I got this concealer back in January and have been obsessed with it ever since! Shockingly, I’m somehow still using my first tube. Granted, I don’t wear makeup every single day, but every time I do apply makeup, I only use this undereye concealer. A little goes a long way! Plus, Saie is CLEAN. 👏🏻
Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation | I’ve used this foundation for a few years, and while sometimes I like to play around with others, this is always my tried-and-true favorite. I love it so much! I know it’s pricey, but it is available in a smaller size so you can try it out before committing to a whole bottle!
Saie Sunvisor | For days when I want a little something without applying a face of makeup, I use this ‘Radiant Moisturizer.’ It has great SPF coverage and the tiniest bit of glow. Also comes in a mini to try it out!
Saie Glowy Super Gel | I have both colors of this and always mix a little bit with my foundation for a more luminous glow! (Unless I have a photoshoot, I usually don’t like a lot of coverage.) I use Starglow when I have a tan, and Sunglow when I don’t. Also love that the glass bottles are refillable!!
Saie Airset Translucent Setting Powder | I’m *obsessed* with this setting powder! It’s somehow hydrating while feeling like absolutely nothing. It leaves the most natural-looking finish, too!
Saie Glowsculpt Cream Blush | I got this cream blush (PeachGlow) during the spring Sephora sale and used it all summer. I’ve barely made a dent even though it was the only blush I used because, again, a little goes a long way. I recently got MauveGlow for fall/winter and have been loving it. I apply it with the larger side of this dual-ended brush.
YSL Lash Clash | I’m not too picky with mascaras and am usually switching around, but I liked this one enough to finish the tube! LOTS of volume.
Anastasia Brow Powder Duo | I’ve long been a fan of Anastasia brow products and my most recent love is this Brow Powder Duo. I’ve been using it since May or June and I’ve barely made a dent. Lasts a while!
Saie Glossybounce | I’m not normally a gloss girlie, but this isn’t sticky or tacky at all. It’s been fun to switch it up from lipstick.
My Winter Skincare Saviors
Skinfix Barrier+ Triple Lipid Serum | I went through at least two bottles of this last winter! The entire Barrier+ line is so great for sensitive skin and harsh winters. Want to try the Body Cream next! (I’ve also heard amazing things about this Eczema+ Hand Cream for cracked hands in the winter!)
St Tropez Purity Face Mist | I LOVE this stuff in the winter! You can mist it over or under your makeup and it develops into the most natural glow. Seriously, it’s *impossible* to screw up!! I like it so much better than any of the ‘tanning drops’ I’ve tried.
L’Occitane Almond Cleansing Shower Oil | OBSESSED with this! I have it in my shower year round, but it’s even more luxurious in the winter months. Softens your skin, smells divine (but not overpowering), and I love that it’s refillable, too. ♻️
Everything I Bought in the Sephora Sale
Verb Ghost Shampoo + Conditioner | This has been my everyday shampoo for the last few years. It’s pretty reasonably priced and hydrates my hair without weighing it down. (Plus, it matches our black and white bathroom 🤪) Also comes in a jumbo set if your shower allows!
Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream REFILL | In my last post, I mentioned buying the jumbo size of my favorite body cream because it’s such a great value, even before the 20% off promotion. BUT I just realized that you can actually buy REFILLS for the original container so that’s what I did to be a little more eco-friendly. ♻️
Touchland Hand Sanitizer | I’ve yet to try this Touchland hand sanitizer, but I’ve heard really good things. It’s supposed to boost collagen production and improve skin firmness and elasticity… Yes, PLEASE! I bought the Glow version (also comes in a Duo set to save even more), but have heard both the Beach Coco and Lavender smell diving.
K18 Set | I filmed a video to share with you guys soon, but when I went to the hair salon over the weekend, I realized that my hair breakage is pretty bad. (And here I thought it was major frizz!) You’ll never believe the cause of it, but I’m determined to get my strands back on track! My stylist highly recommended this K18 treatment, as well as hair vitamins.
Saie Hydrabeam Concealer | Mentioned above, but my current tube is going on month ten and I can tell it’s almost out!
Primer | I desperately need a new makeup primer, and this Rich Bitch one was at the top of my list to try out. (I mean, the branding alone is amazing, but it actually has amazing reviews!) Then I saw that my foundation brand (that I use the primer for) actually launched a new primer. So I ordered Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer!
Mini Glowy Set | Also mentioned above, but since I use both colors of this Glowy Super Gel, I prefer to buy these since the two of them take up less space in my makeup bag. Someday I’ll have a nice big vanity with space for two full-size bottles! 🤪
Ouai Chill Pills | I’m always in the market for bath products, and I’ve long loved the branding of these bath bombs. I’m not sure why they’re 50% off, but it was a total score!
Merit Beauty | I feel like I’m the last person on Earth that hasn’t tried any Merit Beauty products, so I made another impulse order and got three of their best-sellers that have won beauty awards: Volumizing Brow Gel, Instant Glow Serum, and Clean Tubing Mascara
SkinFix Barrier+ Serum | Mentioned above! Had to grab a bottle for winter temps ahead.
Holiday Gifts at Sephora
Higher Dose Sauna Blanket | This is at the TIPPY TOP of my Christmas list this year! I’ve wanted it for a solid three years and my doctor was recently talking about the health benefits of regular sauna sessions. It’s a win, win!
Dyson Airstrait Hair Straightener | This is another product on my wish list!! Dying to try it.
YSL Mini Clutch Eyeshadow Palette | Ummmm… how freaking cute is this eyeshadow palette?! The perfect size and such beautiful neutral colors, too.
Canopy Filtered Shower Head | I’ve heard that these filtered shower heads make such a difference in your skin and hair! Unfortunately, our primary shower doesn’t have an adaptable shower head since it’s a rainfall.
DedCool Dedtergent | I haven’t tried this laundry brand yet, but it’s on my wish list! Have heard rave reviews.
Dyson Hair Dryer | It’s worth every single penny. I’ve had mine for almost two years!
Ouai Hand Wash | We have this hand soap at one of our bathroom sinks and the scent is really great! Makes for a lovely hostess gift.
