My favorite time of year is here! When Sephora rolls out all their holiday beauty goodies (and I try not to spend all of my money). Luckily this weekend and next weekend you can a discount if you’re signed up for their beauty insider program:
Friday, Nov. 9 through Monday, Nov. 12 for those holding VIB status with code "VIBBONUS" (20% off)
Friday, Nov. 16 through Monday, Nov. 19 for those holding Beauty Insider (BI) status with code "BIBONUS" (15% off) Btw, this is their base-level membership if you’re not a Sephora addict like I am. Recommend signing up if you’re not a member to use the sale code!
I’ve picked out all my favorite products below - from fun eyeshadow and face palettes you can gift for the upcoming holidays to products I buy in bulk because they’re staples I use all the time. Just hover over each item and click for a direct shopping link!
Products Top Left to Right (Clockwise):
Too-Faced Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette: I don’t own this palette but I have a ton of others by Too-Faced and am always happy with the quality and how long the color stays. Plus this one smells like gingerbread so it would make a perfect holiday gift (even to yourself).
Moroccanoil Body Soufflé: I’ve probably gone through three jars of this stuff by now — this is my far my favorite all over body lotion. Not only does it actually make my super dry skin feel silky but it smells SO good.
Beautyblender: It just makes your foundation go on and look a million times better, this one’s a staple I stock up on during the sale
Too-Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation: Speaking of foundation, this one I’ve been using for almost a year now and it’s definitely become a favorite. It doesn’t look ‘oily’ or ‘greasy’ on your skin which is nice. I wear color ‘Warm Beige’
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4: This is my favorite face palette ever for a bronzer, blush and highlighter all in one! Better yet — it lasts you all year and is compact for travel. I got the Volume 3 last year and shattered it by dropping it on a hotel floor in Santa Barbara back in April (insert crying emoji). These palettes only come out during the holidays so I am SO happy to finally be able to replace mine! (Just be careful with it, LOL)
Milk Make-Up Cooling Water: A caffeinated gel-stick that’s perfect for combating puffiness. I keep mine in my purse at all times (especially if I’m traveling on a plane!)
LAURA MERCIER Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer: This is my go-to concealer as of late, I use it so much I’ll probably get this one in bulk too! I wear color: 3C
OUAI Wave Spray: Another one of my holy grail items, I use this in place of hairspray after I curl my hair to get that loose curl/beachy wave look you see in all my pictures.
Dior Diorshow Mascara: I’ve literally been using this mascara since I was a sophomore in high school. I’ve tried so many mascaras but this one never fails (also this is the ONLY item I had on my Sephora Insider sale guide from last year’s blog post so you know it’s legit!)
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo: I love Drybar products, and definitely love their dry shampoo to use in-between washes. Just remember to hold the bottle away from your head about the same distance as the length of the bottle to avoid white powdery blotches!
KEVYN AUCOIN Molten Liquid Lipstick: I just recently discovered this brand but it has been my favorite matte lip product I’ve used so far! Color glides on smooth, stays put and the shape of the applicator makes it 10 times easier to apply than other lipsticks I’ve used. I wear color: Matte - Janet daily
LAURA MERCIER Secret Blurring Powder: I apply this over my concealer with an eyeshadow brush to make my concealer stay put without creasing. You can also use over your lids as well!
SHISEIDO Benefiance Eye Bundle: Shiseido is one of my favorite skincare brands and this bundle is too good of a deal to pass up as it comes with a full size under eye cream plus three under-eye treatment sheets.
SMASHBOX Holidaze: Always On Liquid Lip Mini Set: Smashbox always makes such great products - this one would be fun to give away as a holiday gift as an entire set or break it up and give the individual colors away to your girlfriends, coworkers, etc.
Happy shopping! Let me know what you guys are planning to get or any favorites I need to try in the comments!
