Every time I step into Sephora, I have to stop myself from buying the entire store. But, if I had to choose what I would get right now, these are my top picks.
Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit, $45.00
Everyone rants and raves about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit and the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette. To be honest, I want both of those palettes as well, but what makes the Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit stand out is it’s beginner-friendly attributes. It provides instructions for contouring so that even make-up newbies can step up their game and look flawless. The included brush also makes it a great value.
Bite Beauty Opal Creme Lipstick, $24.00
Wear this alone or over your favorite lipstick for a shimmery, ethereal look.
Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, $25.00
Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder For Face And Body, $30.00
If it’s shimmery, I’m certainly on board.
Sephora Collection Rogue Gel Lip Liner, $12.00
Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer, $23.00
The Amazonian Clay products from Tarte are nothing short of amazing, so I’m going to assume that this concealer is a product worth trying (it’s next on my shopping list, that’s for sure).
Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Veil, $30.00
This is a product I have been meaning to try for a while now. I’ve heard great things about it and I’m addicted to anything that claims to be a great highlighter.
Beauty Blender: The Original Beauty Blender, $20.00
What better way to apply your make-up than with a Beauty Blender. Most of you probably already own one. If you don’t, I would recommend the original.
Bobbi Brown Buffing Grains For Face, $44.00
What I love about this product is you can mix it with any facial cleanser you already have on hand (or mix it with just water for pure exfoliation). You can also control the intensity of the mixture. If you want a thorough scrubbing, add more. If you want just a touch of exfoliation in your cleanser, then a few pinches will do the trick.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Milk, $28.00
Clinique has continued to provide some of the best make-up removers and cleansers on the market. I have yet to try this particular one, but I am excited to do so.
Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder, $30.00
Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Wand, $28.00
If you want a creamy stick version of the Josie Maran highlighter, check out this illuminating wand.
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, $26.00
This product promises to nourish your lips and leave them smooth and moisturized.
Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder, $38.00
Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights, $32.00
I own an older version of this, in which I just have a highlighter color. It’d be great to have this combination, though, with the deeper bronze shades as well.
Tarte Airbush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush, $34.00
Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow, $10.00
I’ve wanted a ton of the Sephora Collection eyeshadows for a while. At the $10 price point, they’re affordable and have a ton of different color options.
Stila One Step Correct, $36.00
This is another product I have been wanting to try for ages. The creamy, smooth texture feels great on skin. The coverage–from what I’ve sampled, anyway–seems great.
Tarte Cheek Stain, $30.00
Cheek stains terrify me. Which is why I need this.
Nars Lipstick, $27.00
