My Tried-and-True Sephora Favorites

It’s time again for the Sephora sale! Sephora typically does two sales a year – one in April and one in December and both are a great time to stock up on favorites, try new items or grab a gift for someone! For today’s post I wanted to share some of my tried- & true favorites that I always have on hand along with some of the items in my cart! If you’re a rouge member you can get 20% off (4/17-5/1), VIB members get 15% off (4/21-4/29) and Insiders get 10% off (4/23-4/27) with code SPRINGSAVE.

    1. KIEHL’S ULTRA REPAIR FACIAL CREAM | This is one of my favorite moisturizers to use year round. It’s super hydrating but doesn’t feel thick on your skin!
    2. INVISIBOBBLE HAIR TIES | I have really thin hair and I love these for keeping my hair back without the extra breakage from regular hair ties.
    3. FIRST AID BEAUTY CLEANSER | I have used this cleanser for over five years and it’s still one of my favorites. I have sensitive skin and never have issues with breakouts with this brand. Plus, it gets ALL of my makeup off!
    4. MARC JACOBS BEAUTY MASCARA | The brand sent me this mascara when it first came out & I have purchased it numerous times since because I like it that much. It gives the look of full, voluminous lashes with just a few swipes.
    5. LANEIGE CALMING TONER | My nail tech actually told me about this toner and I’m so glad she did because my skin loves it! It’s gentle on my skin and leaves my skin feeling so soft.
    6. ORIGINS CHARCOAL MASK | This mask is my go-to when my skin is feeling dull and my pores are more visible. I always notice a huge difference when I use it.
    7. IT COSMETICS CC PERFECTING POWDER | If you are wanting a flawless, poreless look, this powder foundation is the way to go! It always leaves my skin looking AMAZING when I use it.
    8. KIEHL’S MIDNIGHT RECOVERY SERUM | This is one of my favorite serums because it helps with dryness, leaves me skin feeling glowy and I can almost always tell a difference overnight!
    9. TARTE TARTEIST PALETTE | I actually have the larger version of this palette but these three are the ones I use most often. It’s great to have on-the-go if you want a nice glow!
    10. IT COSMETICS CC CREAM | This is by far my favorite item in my makeup drawer right now. It has great coverage and gives the perfect “no makeup makeup” look!
    11. T3 CURLING IRON | I have used this brand of curling iron and wand for years and it’s the only one that works well with my thin hair. My curls can last for days with minimal touch ups!
    12. SUPERGOOP LIP BALM | This is my favorite lip balm of all time! I always have one in my bag, one of my desk & nightstand and one in my car at all times! It’s really hydrating & has SPF 30 to protect your lips.

  1. ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATION | I have never tried this foundation, so I think it’s about time to give it a shot!
  2. KIEHL’S CALENDULA & ALOE HYDRATION MASK | My skin has been so dry with this pregnancy, so I’m wanting to try this hydrating mask.
  3. LAURA MERCIER TRANSLUCENT SETTING POWDER | This is my favorite setting powder & I’m getting low so I’m ordering more!
  4. IT COSMETICS BYE BYE MAKEUP | I recently ran out of this product. It lasts SO long and it feels so good on my skin when removing my makeup.
  5. KIEHL’S DAILY REVIVING CONCENTRATE | I have been wanting to try this serum – give me all the products to hydrate & get rid of dull skin, please!
  6. LANCOME MONSIEUR BIG MASCARA | Mascaras are my favorite beauty products to try! I have heard such great things about this one!
  7. BECCA HIGHLIGHTER | This is my favorite highlighter because it’s really pigmented and provides such a beautiful glow!
  8. ISLE OF PARADISE SELF TANNING DROPS | I have heard great things about these tanning drops.
  9. SUPERGOOP POOF SCALP POWDER | Since I have blonde, fair hair my scalp tends to burn easily. This product is a game changer! Ordering more just in time for summer.
  10. SUPERGOOP GLOW SCREEN SUNSCREEN | I loved the unseen sunscreen and have been wanting to try the glow screen sunscreen with SPF 40 and blue light blocking technology.
  11. IT COSMETICS OIL-FREE MATTE CC CREAM | I love the regular CC cream but have been wanting to try the matte version for summer!
  12. DR. BRANDT NO MORE BAGGAGE | I have used this product before and really noticed a difference in the puffiness and dark circles. Something tells me come July I’ll be relying on this product a lot with a newborn ha!
  13. LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK | Another favorite product to try is anything lip balm related. I have been loving this sleep mask and want to try the vanilla one!
  14. CHARLOTTE TILLBURY PILLOW TALK LIP SET | This is a lipstick color that looks good on everyone! I recently lost mine (I’m sure it’s lost in one of my bags!) and miss wearing it!

    Ah, that Tarte palette is a great one! I love all of their stuff since they are a cruelty free brand and the color payoff is excellent. Kiehl’s is also a fave. That recovery serum works wonders.
