Hello, loves! On Tuesday, I shared a blog post all about the products on my wish list for the upcoming Sephora sale, and today I’m sharing my recommendations for you! I did a post of my recommendations last year, which you can check out here, but this time I have chosen completely different products! Read on to see what I recommend.
I recently picked up another bottle of this recently when it was part of a Weekly Wow sale, and it reminded me how much I love the formula of this foundation. It has a thin, watery consistency that feels and looks so natural on the skin. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a light-coverage foundation! I have a review of this foundation from 2017 up here.
These Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pots wow me every time I use them – it’s almost like I forget how metallic and pigmented they are until I use them again! These have a strong foiled finish that is so pretty on the eyelids, and they last all day. If you’re interested, my review of this product is up here.
If you are going to treat yourself to something expensive, do it during the VIB sale. I recommend this Hourglass cream shadow because I get compliments on my eye makeup every single time I wear it. These Scattered Light shadows do have glitter in it which could be off-putting for a lot of people (myself included), but the glitter is so finely milled that it just gives your lids an almost wet, glossy look, and I’ve never experienced any fallout with it. Honestly, if I didn’t have so many eyeshadows to work through at the moment, I would pick another one of these up during the sale.
This liquid lipstick is a fairly new product compared to the rest of the items in my recommendations, as it was released at the beginning of the year. For those of you who hate traditional matte liquid lipsticks (ie me), this is a great alternative. These have a thin consistency and feel a bit like a balm to me, yet they have the pigmentation of a regular bullet lipstick. They have a hydrating formula and sit very comfortably on the lips. I only own one of these lipsticks and totally wish I could buy more during the sale; unfortunately, I’ve put myself on a one-in-one-out policy! However, I would highly recommend these to you guys.
I didn’t mean to feature TWO Hourglass products in my post, but here we are. This is such a good face palette if you’re looking for high-quality finishing powders. I have dry skin so I usually avoid powders, but this never clings to dry patches, and really makes my skin look perfected with a soft, barely there glow. My favourite is Dim Light (left), which has a satin finish and I use all year round, but Incandescent Light and Radiant Light are also beautiful – I love Radiant Light (right) in the summertime when I have a bit of a tan!
This is the perfect hydrating lip mask for the evening; not too thick, but not thin and greasy either. I’ve been using a mini of this that came in a limited edition set of Laneige lip masks, and it’s lasted me over 4 months!
This is such a solid cleansing balm, removes everything in a gentle way and smells nice and fresh. I have a review of this product up here. I’m actually picking up another one of these during the sale!
Farmacy Honeymoon Glow – $77
I’ve been using this regularly for the last month or so, and my skin absolutely LOVES this AHA. I use this twice a week at night, and the next morning, I wake up with the smoothest and softest skin. It’s a 14% AHA/BHA blend which is on the stronger side, but it doesn’t sting when I apply this on my face. A review of this will be up soon!
I just restocked this product because my eye area desperately needed some TLC, and I don’t even know how many jars of this I’ve gone through. Huge recommendation if your eye area is chronically dry – this is by far the richest and most hydrating eye cream I’ve ever used. An expensive little bugger, but a reliable constant in my skincare routine.
I am not a hair person at all…while I love doing my makeup, my motto with hair is that the less time I spend on doing my hair, the better. However, I do have a few hair products I really enjoy.
I do not curl my hair without this product, because it gives my hair so much texture without making it feel crunchy and hard. When I don’t use this, my curls tend to clump together into one big curl throughout the day, and it isn’t a cute look. This texture spray helps to keep the curls separated and piecey looking, which creates that beachy look.
That’s it, my friends! What are your recommendations for the sale? I love hearing about other people’s favourites!
