Ahh yes, the famous Sephora sale that comes once a year. Once the sale has begun, that’s when I know the Christmas season has started. That and the Starbucks red cups. Anyway, this is one of my favourite times of year where you’re able to get some of some great makeup brands for a lot less than normal. I decided to put together a list of my picks, in case any of you are wondering what to get!
Too Faced released a similar palette like this last year, and I never got a hold of one which made me really disappointed. I’m extremely happy that they brought one out again, as there is just so much product in there. I’m familiar with their eyeshadows, having used their Chocolate Bar palette previously, but I’ve been dying to try their bronzers. For the amount that this is actually worth, $68 is a total steal. It’s even a better deal 20% off!
2. Urban Decay Naked2 Basics
I think it is essential for every girl to have a Naked Palette of their own. They are iconic. Urban Decay has recently brought out the Naked2 Basics Palette, a collection of 6 eyeshadows: 5 matte and 1 satin. Urban Decay matte eyeshadows have one of the best formulas I’ve ever tried. If you are looking for a wide variety of shimmer colours though, definitely go for one of the NAKED palettes. Urban Decay sure know how to do eyeshadows.
3. Glamglow Gift Sexy Gift Set
Now this is an insanely good gift set. $76 for one full size Glamglow mask (this is $76 by itself) and two smaller pots (retail for $20 each). This is an awesome idea as you are able to try multiple masks and see which ones work well for your skin. Although this is pricey, I would definitely recommend getting this during the sale as you get almost $16 off the regular price, which is an insanely good deal.
Although this looks scary bright in the photo, I can promise you it does not show up nearly that bright on your cheeks. This blush is formulated to change colour depending on your body’s natural chemistry, and it makes your face look amazing. Your face will look like it’s glowing from within, like you have spent all day in the snow. Such an amazing blush.
5. Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm
I originally discovered this lip balm two years ago during this sale. This is the most expensive lip balm I’ve ever tried, but also the best. This is so creamy and so hydrating. Although it is expensive, it’s most definitely worth it.
6. Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer
This is another product I discovered through the sale last year. This is one of the most expensive makeup items I own (that isn’t a palette) but also one of my most loved and used. Makeup goes on so smoothly with this as a base. Although it is expensive, I think you should buy it on sale when you have a chance, because why not?
7. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
So I’ve finally finished up my tube of this, and I must say, I miss using it everyday. I used Chantilly, which was a little light which meant I had to blend it in a bit more, but Vanilla is the perfect match for me. There are shades for all skin tones, and this provides an amazing finish and coverage. One of the best concealers I’ve tried to date.
8. Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer
Although I have not tried this concealer yet, it has been on my wish list for ages. I’ve been looking for a full coverage concealer that isn’t cakey, as I find I don’t need to use foundation as much anymore and I just need to cover some certain areas of my face now. I have heard so many positive things about this concealer, and I can’t wait to try it out for myself!
I hope this list helped some of you out in decided what to purchase this weekend with the sale going on. Let me know if you have any recommendations or what you’ve picked up from the sale!
