And today, I’m sharing my SEPHORA FAVES!
I say this all the time, but some of my favorite posts to read are beauty posts and often, I’m reading all about people’s favorite things to buy at Sephora, so today, I thought I’d do the same. Last week, I walked into my bathroom and pulled out some of my tried and true faves from their store. Here’s what I love…
…from hair products to makeup and even perfume, these are my constant go tos at Sephora.
Here’s a little break down of why I love each one…
Do any of you wear Atelier Colognes? They come in so many different scents, but my favorite is always their Orange Sanguine. I received this as a sample a few years ago and loved it so much that I’m now on my second bottle. It’s light and easy to wear.
I told you last month that I’m now super in to Laura Mercier’s Caviar Sticks, so when I saw that they had this little mini holiday pack, I got really excited! These are four really pretty colors that I probably wouldn’t have bought otherwise, but in this little set, they’re perfect (especially for traveling since they’re small).
I am obsessed with both of these hair products! First, I’ve told you for the longest time that this Mistress is just perfection. After I wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner, I get out, towel dry it (with this amazing towel HERE) and then rub in a small dollop of this. Not only does it smell fantastic (like coconut), I think it makes my hair more smooth and frizz-free whether I let it air dry or blow dry it. And then this dry shampoo is MY FAVORITE!!! I often hate dry shampoos because they leave a sticky, crunchy, icky residue in my hair, but this DOES NOT! I cannot ever imagine using another kind.
I’ve probably been talking about Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion for 10 years. If your eyeshadow or eyeliner doesn’t stay put, creases, smudges or disappears, this will lock it in. Apply it to your lid, add your makeup on top and bam, it doesn’t budge.
I go through tubs and tubs of this lip balm. I keep one in my makeup drawer and then another one by my bed. I love it for my lips, but I think it’s great for cuticles too. LOVE! You can find lemon HERE and coconut HERE.
Okay, I switched from using Moroccanoil to Olaplex oil about 4 months ago. I still love Moroccanoil, but I had heard so many great things about this oil, that I wanted to try it…and I love it! I love how it smells and also how it performs. I add it to my dry hair before styling with my curling iron. I add just about a quarter-sized amount to my palms, rub them together and then through my hair. After that, I curl.
Alright, this Isle of Paradise is my newest Sephora find and probably my favorite. Sheaffer has been talking about these self tanning drops for a while, so I finally decided to try them myself. You guys know how much I swear by THESE tanning towels for your face, but after using these drops a few weeks, I think I prefer them instead! All you do is add 1 to 3 drops to your nightly moisturizer, rub it all over your face and then go to sleep. The next morning, you will wake up with this amazing glow. I love how this smells (tropical) and how easy it is to apply (with your moisturizer). I always put it on at night because I think it takes several hours to work, so this way, the next morning, bam, I’m tan. NOW, Sheaffer, Erika and I have been laughing all week because I misunderstood Sheaffer and instead of using 1 to 3 drops the first time, I used 10. That’s right, TEN…
…and that’s why I was freakishly tan two weeks ago. Bahahahaha! I mean…GEEZ, Shay! After school one day, Kensington said “Mom, did you go on vacation today?”. Um, no Kensington. I just used too many tanning drops! Needless to say, THEY WORK! I’ve learned that for me, 3 drops with my nightly moisturizer about every five days is perfect.
Okay, what’s your favorite thing to buy at Sephora? What should I try next time?
