Sephora VIB Sale Suggestions…A Super Edited List!

// SKIN //

Kosasport Chemistry AHA Serum Deodorant

This deodorant is the best natural formula I have ever tried. I’ve used it nonstop since April because it truly works. Try it and tell me what you think.

LAWLESS Set the Stage Hydrating Priming Serum

 A brilliant hybrid of gel moisturizer and skin soothing primer, this clean formula is fabulous for one-step skincare that really delivers.

Supergoop! CC Screen 326 W

 I am still in love with this unique medium coverage sunscreen cream; it perfects skin while yielding 100 % mineral protection and lasts for hours on end. Use this Sephora sale as an opportunity to find your shade. You won’t regret it. 

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray

I purchased this earlier this year and love the way it truly locks in makeup while feeling like nothing. It’s also a great mid-day skin refresher so I always have the travel size (pictured) in my bag.

By Kilian Love Don’t Be Shy

 This melange of sweet cotton candy, orange, musk and vanilla lift my mood while creating a lingering sillage that is alluring and sensual. I own nothing else like it in my fragrance collection and it feels ever so apropos for the cooler months ahead.

Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation Stick Tres Leches

I have been using this cream stick formula constantly since picking it up earlier this month. Weightless and buildable, it covers imperfections while looking extremely natural and wearing flawlessly for 8+ hours. It’s also fragrance free and comes in a formidable range of shades…I wholly and highly recommend it!

RMS Un-Cover UP 33.5

I finally found my perfect match in this cult classic and can’t wait to try using it as a light foundation in the days to come. In the meanwhile, it helps to diminish dark circles while looking virtually invisible on the skin. 

Kosas Revealer Concealer 5.5

Rife with skincare benefits galore, this creamy concealer works well on underage circles and blemishes alike and can also be used strategically as a customizable base.

Hourglass Luminous Bronze Light

I wear this bronzer almost daily…there is nothing like its delicate balance of true brown tan with a little glow. If I had to embrace one bronzer for the rest of time, it would be this one. Have you tried it yet?

LAWLESS Make Me Blush Vintage Love

While I love all of the LAWLESS blushes, this, along with Sakura, is my favorite. It has a natural pinky plummy effect that gives depth, dimension and richness to the skin, making it a universally flattering hue worth pursuing. It’s also worth noting that my mom adores it just as much as I do.

Surratt Artistique Highlight Brush

 This, along with my Artistique Cheek Brush, are the brushes I use most in life…every single day, they adeptly blend power products onto my cheeks with ease and finesse. I have used my same Surratt brushes for almost six years…they are an investment you won’t regret.

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Glow

I love the almost liquid luminosity of this finely milled powder…it truly makes skin look lit-from-within with a sophisticated incandescence.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand in Spotlight

I’ve repurchased this countless times over the years as its gel-cream texture yields a bouncy glow that works with every skin type and tone. In a word, simply sublime.

eye makeup

// EYES //

  • LAWLESS The Baby One: Rife with rosy warm tones in matte and satin finishes, this clean palette is a pure steal at $25…I find myself reaching for it multiple times a week. 
  • Ilia Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint: A fresh pearly cream to even eyelids, brighten them (I love topping this with a liquid line and leaving it at that) or even serving as base for more intense shades to come, this liquid formula is a utilitarian workhorse you’ll love having in your collection.
  • Kaja Eyeshadow Trio in Toasted Caramel: Three glimmering bronze shades that can be layered in seconds for an eye look that will look like you spent much more time than you did? Yes, please. The formula is finely milled, resists fallout and wears all day without creasing…consider this gem officially on your radar!
  • Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara: I’ve gone through multiple tubes of this voluming and lengthening mascara and love it for it’s inky black effect that mimics the result one usually gets with false lashes. Oh, and it doesn’t migrate or smear on my sensitive eyes which is major. 
  • GrandeBROW: I have used this serum for years to nourish and maintain naturally full, feathery and even brows and recommend it to everyone who asks. Just one application each night will keep your brows at their absolute best.

different lipsticks

// LIPS //

Lancome Lip Liner in Natural Mauve

This is one of my most used lip liners due to its soft mauve tone that matches my bare lips almost perfectly, allowing for a little inconspicuous overlining. The formula is smooth, hydrating and very long lasting as well.

Tom Ford Soleil Balm Frost Lip Balm

I purchased this earlier this month and am still smitten with the glowy sheen it imparts; I don’t think I’ve ever encountered such a luxurious balm! Also, I picked up two as gifts and know the recipients will love this formula as much as I do.

Kosasport Lip Fuel Extra Strength

We are huge fans of Lip Fuel over here…it’s all my husband wears daily and I keep them stashed in drawers all over the house. This latest iteration has CBD for an extra plush feeling that truly leaves lips volumized and full. 

Pat McGrath Skinsane Lipstick

 I bought this shade last year at this time while traveling in Miami and still wear it consistently. It its a soft mauve-meets-nude-meets-peach that makes lips look healthy and full. **Worn in the images at the end of this post.

LAWLESS Baby Lipstick

This natural pink lip is my favorite shade in the LAWLESS lip lineup…it has just the right level of depth and looks gorgeous over a deeper lipliner for modern take on 1960s lips. At this point, it’s become a permanent member of my makeup bag.

Lancome Juicy Tubes Tickled Pink

This throwback formula has been missed and I’m glad it’s returned! Plus and endlessly shiny, these little tubes of joy take lips to the next level in a single pass and Tickled Pink is a universally flattering dusty pink for polish in seconds.

Tower 28 Shine On Milky Lip Jelly Gloss in Oat

Clean and green and exceptionally friendly to sensitive skin, this tender peachy pink gloss offers just the right semi-opaque neutral glaze.

Charlotte Tilbury Jewel Lip Gloss in Pillow Talk

A pinky beige with buildable opacity, this gloss makes lips look fuller and looks killer over a nude liner.
