If I had $100 to spend at Sephora…

I was searching my Bloglovin feed to find some inspirations for blog posts. I found this post from Into The Gloss: If I gave You $100, What Beauty Products Would You Buy? I love adding everything into my Sephora cart that I want and seeing how much it all costs. Lol. Last time it was around $700! I just love that store and it’s truly a beauty lover’s dreamland! It’s for sure mine.

I wanted to do a post on what I would buy at Sephora for $100.  Since $100 won’t get you far at Sephora I want to do a makeup version, a skincare version, and my Sephora wishlist!

Makeup Recommendations – $100

Nars Creamy Concealer – $29

I love this concealer and it’s definitely a HG item for me. It covers what you need it to, it’s not too dry and it doesn’t look cakey! It works on blemishes, for highlighting or on the under eyes. I would say it’s medium coverage with a natural finish that can be built up.  It’s such a good product and the best concealer you can buy at Sephora IMO.

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer – $24

This cream bronzer is so easy to use! I like that it can work as a bronzer or a contour or as an eyeshadow. It’s not too warm, not too cool and it blends out like a dream.  I love a bronzed face and a cream is more natural so this is definitely a staple for me. This cream bronzer is also a great value when you look at how much product you get.  I’m obsessed with the applicator as it’s easy and great for travel.

Fenty Baby Gloss and Highlighter Set – $23

This set is amazing if you want to try Fenty beauty. You get a mini gloss which is the most amazing gloss I’ve ever tried. It’s hydrating, nonsticky and the color looks good on everyone. It also comes with a mini highlighter in Hustla baby. If you haven’t tried Fenty highlighters, you’re missing out! They are the smoothest of powders and have such an intense glow to the skin that melts in like a cream. They’re so good and you’ll rarely use an entire highlighter so this set is perfect.  The highlighter also looks great on the eyes.

I also totally recommend the gloss and any of the highlighters but we only have $100 here!

Milk Makeup Kush Mascara – $24

I adore this mascara.  It’s gentle, comes off easy and wears like a conditioning treatment for your lashes. It also adds good length and volume. I did an in-depth review of it, here.

The total – $101.

I’m pretty frickin close so this will count. This is total Reece makeup and all I would need for an everyday makeup look.

Skincare Recommendations – $100

This seriously gets harder because Sephora skincare is pricier.

Drunk Elephant Rise + Glow duo – $23.

I can’t tell you to go buy the full-sized C-Firma serum because it’s $80 and we would have no money left! The C-Firma is amazing. It’s a fast-acting, vitamin c serum that brightens skin and keeps texture smooth. This is one of the only skincare products I’ve tried that truly blew me away. If you want results pretty quickly, get this because it’s that good.

YTTP Superberry Oil – $44

This is the best facial oil and here’s why: it smells great, it’s light and absorbs fast, it’s non-greasy and it layers well with skincare and makeup. I use this daily under makeup for a dewy base and at night. As someone with dry skin using an oil has really transformed my skin.  My skin type in the summer is more normal than dry because of adding an oil into my routine.

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen – $32

A good SPF is SO important to have in your routine. It protects your skin from UV rays and sun damage and that’s so important for age prevention and just overall skin health. I can’t stress it enough, you need sunscreen!! I love the Unseen sunscreen by Supergoop because it’s very non sunscreen. I think of sunscreen as greasy, leaves and white cast and smells like banana boat.  This has minimal smell, is non-greasy with a flat, natural finish and it’s clear so there’s no white cast! It’s an amazing everyday sunscreen and will prime your skin for makeup.

The total – $99.

Skincare is way more expensive but if you’re going to invest, here’s where you want to do it. You will never regret taking care of your skin!!

Wishlist! – $100

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Highlighter and Balm duo. – $48

I’ve always wanted something, Pat McGrath. The eyeshadow palettes are works of art but I don’t wear eyeshadow all that often and their price tag keeps them low on my wishlist. Her new cream highlighters are something I can totally get on board with because I know I’ll wear them! They’re cream, stick highlights with a shimmer and a clear balm side. I have the Ciate dewy stick in glow which is a clear highlighting balm and I’m obsessed with it.  It’s super glowy but not fake or powdery looking.  I’m expecting this to be very similar and I totally have to get this!

Herbivore Pink Cloud Moisturizer – $48

As a dry skin girl, I love a good moisturizer. This one has rosewater in it to create radiant, dewy skin.  I love anything radiant or dewy.  I think this could be a great everyday moisturizer and I’m always down to try a new one.

The total – $96.

Everything I want to try is expensive AF so I had to pick two things that would be $100! What a struggle LOL.  I also really want to try the Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Nude Dip, the Caudalie Glycolic Peel mask, the Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil and the Hourglass Illume Sheer Color Trio.

      It’s awesome! The soft matte concealer they have is great too! NARS does good concealers.
