Favorite Beauty Products + Sephora Beauty Insider Event
Truth is I'm a little bit of a beauty junkie. I'm always in search for the best makeup and skincare products, but these 6 items are products that I buy over and over! With the Sephora VIB sale coming up the 10th-15th, I thought I would share my favorite products at Sephora. Also, for the first time ever Beauty Insiders can also shop the sale! VIB members will receive 20% off in-store and online orders with code 20forVIB. While Beauty Insiders will receive 15% off orders with code INSIDER15.
1) BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter
This creamy highlighter powder is meant to make your best features pop with a high-shine finish. Highlighter is supposed to be applied to the high point areas of your face and body and creates a dewy glow as if the sun is hitting you. I've replaced my bronzer with highlighter, but it still gives that sun kissed effect! I also apply it to my shoulders if I'm wearing something sleeveless and my collarbone if I'm wearing something off the shoulder! My favorite shade is "Champagne Pop" (shown here), it's a soft white-gold with peachy pink undertones.
2) Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment
With the dry winter months coming up, this lip treatment literally saves my life! Colorado is pretty dry all year round, but the winter months are extra draining. When I found this lip treatment, my lips were red and chapped and peeling and I was applying my Burt's Beeswax like no other! After using this treatment, my lips were cured within a day! I cannot tell you enough how much I love this product. It applies light and silky, not waxy and heavy and is translucent like a chapstick. It's a little bit pricey, but now would be the perfect time to purchase it during the Sephora sale!
3) Buxom Full-On Lip Stick
This is pretty much the only lip stick I use. I love it because it is a "triple-action" lipstick. It defines lips like a lip liner, fills the lip with a creamy, velvet-matte color, and features a refreshing (not over-the-top) tingling for a lip-plumping effect, AND delivers hydration with vitamins A, C and E! If that doesn't already sell you, I don't know what will! My favorite shades are "Dolly" which is a shimmering, sultry mauve and "Brooklyn" which is more of a fig color.
4) ORIGINS Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Gel
This super small package (only .3 fl oz) packs a punch! This is my go-to treatment for treating pimples. If I'm on top of it, I can apply this gel to my blemish and it will LITERALLY be gone the next day. If I'm not on top of it, I can apply this nightly and within 2-3 days my blemish will be gone! This is definitely one of my skincare secrets. With such small packaging, you may wonder if the price is worth it, but it totally is! I only use a drop for each blemish and I've had this bottle for over a year now!
5) Sephora Collection Face Masks
These sheet masks are amazing and so refreshing- sure you look a little scary for 15 minutes, but when you take them off you glow! I try to use a mask once a week. I struggle with dry skin and the occasional breakout, so these masks are a life saver. There are several different masks to pinpoint different problems. My go-to's are the "Pearl Mask" which perfects and brightens, "Rose Mask" which moisturizes and brightens, and "Green Tea Mask" which mattify's and is anti-blemish. There are masks for every concern, but if you don't know which one to grab they are also selling a 6-pack of their best selling masks for only $25 (I will link that set too)!
6) Benefit Roller Lash
After using Too Faced "Better Than Sex" mascara for years, I was over it and needed a change. I recently bought this mascara in a tester size and I am obsessed! I naturally have pretty long lashes, so I'm always looking for a mascara that's more volumizing than lengthening. Another problem of mine, straight lashes. No matter how much I curl them or how much the mascara advertises the curling affect, it just doesn't work for me. Anyone else have this problem? Well, I have the solution for you- this Roller Lash mascara is the FIRST mascara I've ever used that actually does what it says it does. I've never looked more awake. I will definitely be purchasing this again!
