It's the glam-est season of all! The Sephora Spring Sale is upon us and while I'm sure you've been inundated with recommendations from your favourite content creators, I'm hoping this may be a helpful guide to navigating through all the noise.
Clinique Moisture Surge™ 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator Moisturizer - This moisturizer is like none other. As a loyal Aveeno gal, this moisturizer is really worth the price tag. I love to use it to spot treat dry patches on my face at night and it works absolute wonders. Highly recommend to my fellow dry skin girlies.
Laneige Lip Glowy Balm - I know all the hype is for the Laneige Lip Mask, and don't get me wrong, I use that everyday and adore it. But this lip balm is the perfect sister product to keep in your purse throughout the day. It's hygienic, it's travel-friendly and it's the Laneige quality we all know and love.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer - This lip topper is amazing to throw in your purse and reapply while you're out and about. It's super lightweight and not very pigmented, which is great for a lip topper. Plus, I love the sparkle it gives your lips. So pretty!
Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm - If you're anything like me, you want a quick and easy lip product for those no-makeup days, and this is just that! This uber-TikTok famous lip balm is a great hybrid between a gloss and lip balm.
Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Divine Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette - Before travelling last month, I was on the hunt for the *perfect* travel-friendly eyeshadow palette. I felt like I was using one or two shades from so many different palettes and I wanted one to condense it all. This palette not only met all those expectations, it exceeded it! I adore the quality of these shadows, it's super user-friendly and makes eyeshadow application easy, even for a beginner!
Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Lip Jelly Non-Sticky Gloss - This gloss has been all the range on TikTok and I can see why! Shade Pistachio is the perfect nudey pink for any brown girl! I absolutely adore the non-sticky formula and how pigmented it is. I like this one with a lipliner but with the perfect combo, this is amazing!
Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush - Unless you've been living under a rock, you will have seen these industry-changing product ALL over the internet. I've been using shade Encourage for months and absolutely love it for my skin tone. The one tip I will say is that less is more when it comes to this product. I use one modest dot per cheek and blend it out by pushing it into the skin. I love how long-lasting and matte these blushes are. So worth the hype!
Makeup By Mario MoistureGlow™ Plumping Lip Serum - I absolutely love this lip product, similar to the Summer Friday Lip Butter Balm, it's the perfect hybrid between a lip gloss and balm. It's super pigmented and can definitely be worn without a lipliner which makes it super user friendly! The one con to this product is the actual packaging, once twisted up, product can't go back down which can sometimes lead to a messy situation. But totally worth the little mess! Adore shade Rosewood Glow!
Sephora Collection Long Lasting Eyeliner High Precision Brush - No matter how many black liquid liners I try, I *always* come back to this one. At an amazing price point, this liquid liner gives the perfect uber-matte black eyeliner to complete any look. And bonus points, once applied, it's not budging. Highly recommend giving it a try! (Plus! During the sale, all Sephora Collection products are 30% off)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick - I'm sure its clear by now that I love lip products. But this Anastasia Liquid Lip was my first true (lip) love! It's the perfect and I mean PERFECT brown. It's super comfortable and long-lasting. Plus, I love layering with this lip color, it makes the perfect base!
Nars Soft Matte Complete Foundation - I'm always on the hunt for the perfect higher end matte foundation (I'm a L'oreal Infallible Matte Foundation girlie through and through). The quality of this foundation is unmatched! It's the perfect comfortable matte that doesn't dry out dry patches while keeping shine at bay. I absolutely love it and love that there's such an extensive color range.
The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum - I've been using this product on-and-off for the past 9 months and let me tell you, while it's a slow burn, I definitely see the results! I recently noticed that my lash line was looking a lot more full and realized that this was the difference. It's super easy to apply, I usually just through it on before bed and it works its magic. Plus for the price, this a great product to test. Highly recommend checking out if you're looking to thicken your lashes or fill in sparse areas of your brows.
Smashbox Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Oil-Free Foundation Primer - This primer is a holy-grail to so many and there's good reason for it! I absolutely adore (and I mean ADORE) this primer. Without a doubt, it is the secret to long-lasting makeup. I use it whenever I plan on wearing makeup all day or to a special event. It creates the perfect canvas for makeup application.
ColorWow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray Anti-Frizz Treatment - Okay I know 'anti-frizz' can feel like a buzzword on every hair product, but I kid you not this product is a GAME CHANGER. I spray it generously on my hair every couple washes and it really, really does tame frizz and just keep your hair looking good between washes. Love this brand and love this product for us frizzing haired girlies.
