Sephora Sale Faves

You ask, I deliver. Here is the full run-down of the products I’m loving from the Sephora sale. I’ve included products I personally love and a few that I’ve snagged to try at the behest of the beauty community… Here we go!

SKINCARE

  1. Tan Luxe Super Glow: skincare.pngThis is my go-to serum for summer skin. Beauty gurus hail
    one of its main ingredients, Hyaluronic Acid, as a hydrating must-have and the serum will give your face some color so you can skip those harmful rays.
  2. Bye Bye Lines Serum: My mom gifted me this for Christmas. (Should I be offended? Ha!) Once I tried it, I knew why. It made my skin feel soft and supple. Even if you’re a low maintenance gal, a good serum is non-negotiable.
  3. Confidence in a Cleanser: If you’re still “washing” your face with a make-up wipe, WE NEED TO TALK. You need to be removing your make-up AND cleansing. No parabens or sulfates and works for all skin types. I really like this line’s moisturizer too – hydrating, but not heavy. And for good skincare, the price point isn’t steep. (Try the mini sizefirst to see if you’re in love before you commit.)
  4. St Tropez Express Tan: I’m pretty fair-skinned, and I have been turned orange a time or two… so I’m a big cynic about sunless tanner. This one is, hands down, my fave. I use their gradual tanner for daily upkeep. Sephora sells the mini so you can give it a shot if you’re (understandably) wary. Pro tip: Make sure you use a mitt, or your hands will be sorry. Here’s the one I use.
  5. Extra Strength Daily Peel:Peels are amazing and they are expeeeeensive at a spa. But they are a must if you want amazing skin – the top layer of your skin is dull and dry, the good stuff is under. If you have sensitive skin, I’d test a small surface to make sure it won’t irritate.

If you’re a skincare rookie and you don’t know where to begin, keep it simple: A cleanser, followed by a serum and moisturizer is a great start. The It Cosmetics skincare line is an affordable but quality place to begin. Start here or DM me with your skin concerns and I’ll happily provide custom suggestions.

MAKE-UP

  1. Your Skin But Better Setting Spray: Yet another product with Hyaluronic Acid! Sensing a theme? The theme is quenched, dewy skin. Aloe and coconut water also pack a serious punch, but the best part is it does what it says and your glam will stay put. (Thank gawd, in this Texas heat hunny…)
  2. Becca Under Eye Corrector: Got dark circles? Join the club. As a mom of a newborn, I use this when I don’t need a full coverage make-up moment. It brightens me up so I don’t look like a corpse for Zoom meetings. When I need coverage and contour, I use Shape Tape, which has a cult following for good reason. If you’re looking for a budget option, this one is a drug-store dupe with rave reviews and lots of blogger mentions. (It’s under $8!)
  3. SUPERHERO Mascara: I snagged this at the recommendation of a blogger fave, Melissa of @Ellabrooksblog, because her lashes are (gasp) REAL and amazing. I wasn’t disappointed, it gives me lengthy lashes and isn’t clumpy. It comes in mini, too, for those who want to try. 7799cdfd-5b4e-4227-98c5-a3e817453c7f_1.14533b0be3261aa24c085f2fc1c4bc40.jpg
  4. Laura Mercier Setting Powder: A beauty blogger fave, and mine too. It’s infused with pearl to give you a healthy glow finish. (I don’t find it too shiny, either.) I like to dust my face to give my glam extra staying power.
  5. Pillow Talk Lipstick: You can spend forever trying to find the perfect shade of pinky nude – Lord knows I have tried every shade of nude at the cosmetics counter, or you can buy the cult classic by Charlotte Tillbury.

FRAGRANCE

  1. Roses de Chloe: This perfume feels like Paris in Spring: chic, understated, poetic… Can a scent be poetic? Let’s go with it… Chloe makes really sophisticated scents – I’ve always loved their classic perfume – but I snagged this amazing scent on a whim (Damn you, slow check-out lines) in the mini rollerball version (linked here if you want trial size) and when I run out I will 100% be buying full size.
  2. Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede: This elegant floral is a happy, flowery scent. It’s an ideal gift for Mother’s Day because of its beautiful bottle.
  3. Chanel: A reviewer writes: “This perfume smells like you’re rich,” which is both funny and true. Every girl should own one Chanel fragrance, and for summer this floral – meets – vetiver is sexy and charming.
  4. Red Roses Diffuser: Okay, so it’s a bit of a splurge. But it will last you a full year and give you the delicious fragrance of florals throughout your living space. IMO, worth it, but I’m a fragrance fanatic.

I’d love to know what you’re eyeing! Shoot me a DM or leave a comment: @blushandbloom_mama
