I’m a big fan of make-up and skincare (and frequent Sephora more than I should as you can probably tell from all my beauty posts), so when Sephora holds a sale I tend to jump on it and stock up on my current favorites as well as try anything new I’ve been eyeing. The sale is going on this week, for 8 days total so I’ve rounded up everything I swear by - split into three categories (make-up, skincare, and everything else miscellaneous like haircare, wellness and fragrance).
Summer Bonus dates are as follows with code SUMMERSAVE:
Rouge gets 20% off August 19-27
VIB gets 20% off August 20-27

Clockwise from top:
Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation: The color I wear this in is 2W1.5 Bisque - light with warm undertones. I recently switched to this foundation because it has full coverage but feels light and nice on your face throughout the day.
Charlotte Tilbury The Feline Flick Liquid Eyeliner: This is the perfect eyeliner for a cat-eye. Love how it’s liquid and doesn’t dry out either!
Too-Faced Damn Girl! 24-Hour Mascara: The mascara on this wand is huge, and gives off the effect of wearing falsies. I recently switched to this after wearing the Diorshow mascara religiously.
Too-Faced Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer: The perfect bronzer for natural, tanned look. It’s not too shimmery either like most bronzers are.
Too-Faced Plump Lips That Last: I actually haven’t tried this one yet, but it’s on my list! I’ve heard rave reviews about it plumping your lips - a good alternative for people like me who want the look of fuller lips but don’t want to touch lip fillers.
Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer: This has been my go-to concealer forever. Most days I wear nothing but this when I’m running out the door. The color I wear is 3N - medium with neutral undertone.
NARS NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette: I don’t own this either but have sampled the colors at the store and want to try it! I love the pretty pinks and peaches in it.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15: This is the best crossover between a lip color and a chapstick. I love the color Spice - spiced rose nude tint, which has a satin finish.
Clockwise from top:
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer- Blemish-less: I get really oily skin, so I love applying this all over my face before make-up to keep my skin from looking gross throughout the day.
GLAMGLOW SUPERTONER ™ Exfoliating Acid Solution Toner: I still get adult acne sometimes (eye-roll), so I love this toner for keeping blemishes at bay.
Summer Fridays R + R Mask: This mask smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling fresh. I love how after I wash it off, there’s oils left over to massage into my face. A splurge but worth it.
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%: This stuff is amazing for blemishes and pores and literally SO INEXPENSIVE! You actually can’t use the discount on The Ordinary products because they’re already priced so low, but this is such a good product I had to include it.
GLAMGLOW GRAVITYMUD™ Firming Treatment Mask: First off, this mask is really fun to paint on and peel off. But more importantly, leaves my skin feeling really firm and tight.
Kopari Coconut Rose Toner: This stuff smells absolutely amazing. I use it first thing in the morning, before bed, and as a make-up primer. Seriously so good, just spritz it everywhere, all the time.
Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy: Another Kopari product that smells AH-MAZING. I’m obsessed. And leaves. your lips feeling nice and hydrated. That's all.
Murad Outsmart Acne Clarifying Treatment: I put this gel serum on blemishes after washing and moisturizing my face, before bed. When I wake up, the pimples are usually coming to the surface if they weren’t before or gone. It’s so good!
Drunk Elephant C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream: My current favorite eye cream. I haven’t seen a huge difference in the brightening under my eyes (Sephora’s website claims this works as a brightening cream) BUT I’ve noticed my under-eyes have definitely become more firm after consistent use.
Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil: I love this as a moisturizer a couple of nights a week to help with redness and unevenness I get sometimes.
Drunk Elephant B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Serum: This is my favorite skincare product on this list! I actually carry this in my purse everywhere I go. It can be used mixed with other oils too, or used on its own. It’s improved my skin so much since I started using it back in March.
Clockwise from top:
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides: I’ve been taking this since 2017 and I stand by this product. I put a scoop of this in my smoothie after working out (collagen helps muscle recovery after you work out and tear your muscles), and in my coffee (collagen is good for your hair and skin)! It’s also flavorless, so it’s easy to consume.
Ouai Wave Spray: I use this in place of hair spray or texture spray, and it works so well without feeling stiff.
MAISON MARGIELA ‘REPLICA’ Beach Walk: This fragrance is so good. I don’t like scents that are overly sweet or fragrant. This one smells nice without being overwhelming. And it’s super luxurious too!
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream: I use this firming lotion all over my butt and thighs. It feels nice and smells even better. I just began using it so I’m curious to see what results I get over time.
Slip Sleep Mist: I have the hardest time falling asleep, so spraying this on my pillow helps to get me to relax and is almost like a reminder for me to get ready for bedtime so I’m not tempted to put off my bedtime routine.
IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo: Holy grail of all dry shampoos, this one is a staple for me as I tend to wash my hair every 2 or 3 days to not dry it out.
Moon Juice SuperYou® Daily Stress Management: I’ve had a hell of a year, and with that comes an immense amount of stress. I’ll take anything I can to downplay that stress! These capsules are a daily supplement which include Ashwagandha to help your body with stress, Rhodiola to reduce fatigue, and Shatavari which supports healthy hormonal balance.
