what to buy at the Sephora Sale!

The Sephora VIB sale is just around the corner! Woot woot! If you’re rouge or your friend is, you can shop the sale 15% off this weekend…if you’re with them. Or next weekend Friday – Sunday 15% for Rouge, VIB and 10% off for Beauty Insider.  I love Sephora without a sale so when they have a sale you gotta go ham.  I’ve been curating my list for the past month.  Products like Drunk Elephant, Nars, Tom Ford, and lots of fragrance rarely if ever goes on sale. You HAVE to stock up!
Any product you use in your daily routine…here’s a few examples.

  • Any concealers or foundation you use daily.
  • setting powder or spray. love the Laura Mercier setting powder. snag that on sale because its pricey.
  • Skincare you use daily whether its a cleanser, toner, moisturizer or serum.
  • Mascara!
  • Haircare.
  • Fragrance

NEED IDEAS? Here’s my picks per category.
Makeup //
Bronzer. Benefit Hoola is the best bronzer out there and it works on many skin tones plus, you can contour with it. The Milk makeup bronzer is a great cream bronzer. Nars liquid laguna is my absolute favorite. Kevyn Aucoin contour powder is awesome for coutour.
Highlighter. I will say Becca because they’re just that good. But disclaimer they are fragile af so if you travel and / or drop things a lot this is risky. Another good option is the ABH Amrezy highlighter — its gorgeous and feels sturdier.
Nars concealer! Their soft matte is my jam rn but I used to be obsessed with the creamy radiant which is equally as good.
MASCARA! I plan on getting one of their sets that allows you to try mini mascaras then redeem it for a full size one.  As for mascara, I love the Lancome Monsieur Big.
Lipsticks: Fenty gloss forsure. Fresh tinted balms are great for day to day or splurging on a new everyday lipstick. I like Dior, Nars or Guerlain.
I will say I’m not a foundation or eyeshadow palette person persay so lacking in those categories… BUT
Tarte makes some great everyday shadow palettes. The ABH Soft Glam is calling my bare lids as we speak.
I don’t like foundation but the Sephora Collection skin tint is awesome. It’s very light weight coverage.
Also the It Cosmetics CC cream is the bomb. I like the radiant one. The coverage is medium +, and it has SPF but it feels light.
Skincare //
Again, anything DE.
I love the Farmacy Honey potion hydrating face mask as well as the Herbivore Blue Tansy mask. Its a great alternative if DE baby facial is too strong for your skin. (like mine!)
This Laneige overnight lip mask is amazing. I use it every night.
I love Clinique Take the day off balm to remove makeup.
Beauty Water is an awesome micellar water, toner, second cleanse. The Fresh Rose toner also looks awesome.
Moisturizer wise I love the Tatcha water cream. DE Lala retro feels amazing.  And the Herbivore Pink cloud moisturizer is catching my eye.
Haircare //
Mostly what I use isn’t at Sephora but…
Olaplex freakin 3 is amazing. You can find it online for a tad cheaper but people have gotten fakes before.
Ouai Leave in conditioner is great. So is the frizz sheets for day 3 hair.
Drybar has some good sprays. My favorite is the Triple Sec Texture spray.
Living Proof dry volume blast is great for volume at the root.
I’m a broken record. Anything Drunk Elephant. I love their TLC Framboos and C-Firma serums. The marula oil melts into the skin. The sunscreen is awesome. Lala Retro + Protini feel amazing… point is you can’t go wrong with this brand, its expensive and it never goes on sale so stock up! There is a limit to 3 DE items per sku. My mom is bringing my dad with her to do another transaction because she loves DE that much.
Brands like Tom Ford, Dior, Natasha Denona, Pat McGrath — all the stuff that never goes on sale.
Tom Ford the bronzer is meh but if you want it in your collection now is a good time. If you just want a good bronzer I say go with Hoola.
Dior has good lips and gorgeous highlighters and bronzers.
Natasha Denona, quite honestly expensive shadows I haven’t tried but I like the chrome lid toppers!
Pat McGrath ahh the holy grail. I never wear eye shadow but I NEED one of her palettes….sublime if were getting specific. 😉
Expensive serums and oils if I haven’t mentioned one you like or want to try.
Fragrance!  I love Flower Bomb and Nest Black Tulip 
Tools! Whether it be a new hair dryer, an eye lash curler, a face tool or a beauty blender.
