My Sephora Must Haves

The Sephora Sale is LIVE and I have rounded up my Sephora must haves and holy grail products below. These are all products and even brands I love and if you follow me on social you have heard me talk about several of these often! FYI- you get 30% off any Sephora collection item. I would recommend becoming a Beauty Insider (it’s free). Take a look here to see more details on how to join.

What’s one thing you have your eye on? If you’re looking for high-ticket items, like hair tools, or even skincare tools, now would be the time to buy and save!

Sale ends 04/24/2023


Some of the items below are not new here, but I love the Luminous Silk foundation and I wear it daily (still). Fun fact, I have already bought FOUR bottles of it, which may now be the most repurchased foundation. The new bronzer I really like is the SAIE bronzer. The new Iconic London blurring primer specifically applied BEFORE the foundation is BEAUTIFUL. It’s been my new favorite combo.

Givenchy loose-setting powder is also a holy grail (my TOP powder). The Nars color corrector is my favorite color corrector. It’s FANTASTIC. The moondust is the perfect shimmer shadow, I use it almost daily! Tower28 is a REALLY good mascara, and so is MERIT!


Again, none of these items are new, and all are oh-so-good. Love my T3 set; it’s one of the only wands that keeps my hair curled for longer than a few hours. The Drybar 3-day bender is also really good. The honey mask below is also fantastic- great for dry hair and smells great! A new favorite for shiny hair is the Drybar Cure Liqueur treatment oil, and it’s fantastic- use as a pre, shampoo and it lasts up to 4 washes! The shampoo and conditioner are also great. A newer brand to me is Virtue Labs, and I have tried their dry shampoo is great, and the flourish line too helps hair growth and volume.


Tan-Luxe and Isle of Paradise are good self-tanners (see more about Tan-Luxe in this blog post). but the St. Tropez Lux Whipped Creme has put both those to shame IMO. The tan is GORGEOUS, lasts a while, and fades evenly. Sol De Janeiro is a Brasilian favorite. Their scent is strong, though, but I personally like it. Necessaire is a good brand, the body oil is light and moisturizing!

Out of skincare at Sephora, it’s hard not to feel too overwhelmed, so I just stick with my favorites- the Ordinary, and PTR has some awesome face masks. If you’re looking for one at-home facial spa tool to get- I would recommend the NuFACE toning device. Also, the Dr. Dennis LED mask has been great to have at home. You can watch my full review of it here. Also, if you have not tried hanni, YOU are missing out.

Be sure to let me know below if you have any must-have items from Sephora! Are you also shopping for anything specific, and if so, do you need any help?! Let me know! I also recently picked up a bunch of hair products to try you can watch that video here.

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!
