Sephora Spring Sale + 10 Holy Grail Products

So you might have heard by now, but Sephora’s bi-annual sale is back! If you’re a Rouge member you’ve already been eligible to start shopping the sale at a 20% discount. If you’re a VIB (like me) today is the day you get to start shopping at at 15% discount! And Beauty Insiders get to start shopping the sale on Tuesday (4/23) at a 10% discount. Just remember to use the code SPRINGSAVE to redeem online!

If you’re a beauty lover like me, now is the perfect time to stock up on all of your makeup, skincare, and hair care favorites and maybe even splurge on a new product you’ve been eyeing. Because the sale is going on, I thought I would share the top 10 Sephora must-haves that I can’t live without.

  1. Secret Brightening Powder. I’ve shared before that my under eye circles and puffiness are one of my biggest skin concerns. While concealer is a must to help hide them, this product really sets the concealer in place (looks good all day!) and adds even more brightness. It also helps to mattify the area — in other words tone down the dewiness from the concealer — to avoid drawing attention to that area. Truly a life changing product for me!
  2. CILS Lash Booster. I’ve raved about this before. I have incredibly straight eyelashes so using a lash primer is an absolute must. I’ve tried the drug store version of this and it just doesn’t compare. This is definitely worth the extra $$!
  3. Foundation. Personally, I don’t go for heavy duty foundations. I like that this one feels almost like moisturizer, but still covers up everything it needs to. The face that it also has SPF is a major benefit! I wear shade 4N — it’s the perfect match to my skin tone after I self tan.
  4. Tinted SPF. If I’m not using my foundation (pretty much days that I haven’t self tanned or don’t plan to wear a lot of makeup) this is my go-to product. It’s SPF 50 which I LOVE and is basically the same as a tinted moisturizer. It really blurs out imperfections and is worth every penny.
  5. Beauty Elixir. I will admit that I don’t use this every day, but it is one of my favorite products. I use this mostly as a setting spray, but also sometimes after I put on primer. It really helps to set your makeup, but also adds moisture back in so you don’t look cakey. I also love the minty smell/feeling!
  6. Eyeshadow Palette. This is basically my most used palette at the moment. I got it last summer and am still super impressed by the pigments. I can create so many looks just from these 6 colors. And even if you don’t love these exact colors, I can’t recommend Charlotte Tilbury palettes enough.
  7. Face Mask. I’ve been out of this for awhile and am hoping to get my hands on it during the sale. I’m not super into face masks, but this one I love. It’s a pink clay mask so it really cleans out your pores, but doesn’t leave you feeling dry. In fact, my face always feels so soft after using it.
  8. Moisturizer. I’ve been using Clinique moisturizers since middle school and I don’t think I’ll ever find a brand I love more. All I have to say is my face feels moisturized without the heavy feeling some moisturizers leave behind.
  9. Lip Mask. I bought into the hype around this product and don’t regret it! I love how moisturized my lips feel the next day if I put it on at night. Mostly though, I like to put it on before doing my makeup so that by the time I’m done, my lips are soft and primed for any lipsticks.
  10. Blush. The last product on my list is the NARS blush in Orgasm. It’s seriously the prettiest shade and lasts forever. It’s a cult favorite for a reason and I highly suggest snatching it up during the sale!

Now that I’ve shared all of my holy grail products, I wanted to share a master list of products from Sephora I’ve used and loved. Happy shopping!



P.S. Thought I saved a photo from my eyeliner tutorial the other day, but I did not. So please enjoy this selfie of me wearing sunglasses.
