Sephora Sale Favorites

Hi friends! So I haven't written a post since the beginning of the summer, which is totally wild. Where did the year go?! I figured, what better time to get back into blogging than during the Sephora sale? The Holiday Bonus Event opened up to all tiers of the Beauty Insider program today. Rouge members get 20% off, VIB gets 15% off, and Insiders get 10% off. If you're not signed up for the program yet, it's totally free and you can do it today to get 10% off! The more money you spend each year, the higher your tier is and the higher your percentage off is during these events.

But enough with the technical details - let's get down to it. This post rounds up my favorite items from Sephora and breaks down what items are actually worth purchasing during the sale. These are items I personally own and use and love - not sponsored at all. Here we go...

1. Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Cream and Primer


I actually purchased both of these during the last Sephora sale and I honestly don't know how I lived without them before that. The eye cream really does brighten my under-eyes and the primer is a game changer under foundation - it smooths my skin and blurs pores without feeling greasy or like I'm wearing layers of makeup. You can also wear them alone on makeup-free days for a pretty natural look!

2. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder


Shocker, I know. You've probably heard of this a million times before and honestly, I wasn't so sure about it until I actually tried it for myself over three years ago and now there's no turning back. I've tried other setting powders, including the Fenty one, and none compare to this one. It's just amazing and totally worth the splurge IMO.

3. Living Proof Triple Detox Shampoo


Who else uses layers and layers and layers of dry shampoo between washes?? I was desperately searching for a shampoo that really cleaned and got all the gunk from product out of my hair and wasn't having any luck. One of my favorite Bay Area bloggers, Kat Ensign, shared this shampoo so I decided to give it a shot, and OMG it's exactly what I was looking for. It clears out all the buildup and leaves my hair feeling fresh and truly clean. I can't recommend this one enough.

4. NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment


This is my holy grail matte lipstick - I own five different shades. It does. Not. Move. All day. I will put this on in the morning, go to work, drink coffee, eat, go out for drinks, and come home and it's still there and hasn't even started to fade. Even better, it doesn't dry your lips out and make them all flaky. Shades 'American Woman' and 'Walk This Way' are my faves.

5. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz


This is another cult favorite that I just can't get enough of! It gives your brows a natural look and doesn't make them look too bold and drawn on. It's very user friendly and comes in a variety of shades - I use medium brown!

6. Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation


I picked this up on a whim over the summer and I fell in love! I wouldn't recommend it if you're oily but dry and normal skin types are perfect for it. It has a nice radiant finish to it that gives you a pretty glow and the coverage is buildable, so you can use as much as you like.

That's it from me! There are so many other products on the sale that I really like, but these are just my absolute favorites. I hope y'all find it helpful and happy shopping!

XO,
Katie
