Thank you to Sephora and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
This month’s Sephora Haul has a little something for everyone! I’m sharing everything from make up, to anti-aging serums, to hair perfume. Yes, hair perfume is a thing and I can’t believe I’ve only just discovered it now. As a self-proclaimed beauty junkie, I just wanted to share that I scour the Sephora site for the best ratings, try them out, and only share what I love and would recommend to my BFF. And since we are all friends here, let’s dive right into my mid-summer Sephora Haul!
BUT FIRST….. if you want to be “in the know” when it comes to all things beauty. I highly recommend signing up to be a Sephora Beauty Insider. They share all of the best new products and you can also earn points each time you shop.
The Make Up
Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lip Stick by Fenty Beauty // The higher the temps, the less make up I wear. Ok ok, sunkissed skin helps. Many days I find myself wearing a little bronzer and a swipe of lipstick. I am in love with this summer nude shade, “Makeout Break”. Adds the perfect amount of color and is super hydrating.
Tartlette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette by Tarte // Like I said, I am a ratings girl. When something has 3k stellar reviews, I need to add one to my Sephora Haul and test it out. Great eyeshadow palettes are hard to come by because you really want one that has a mix of shimmer and matte colors that you will actually use! I love the pinky/brown/nude tones of this palette. For a quick summer eye, apply “funny girl” all over your lid. Apply “rebel” to your crease” then dab “flower child” to your inner corner and below your eye brow. Easy peasy!
E-Rase Milki Micellar Water by Drunk Elephant // Are you ever too tired to splash water on your face at night, but can’t bear going to bed with a full face of make up on? Me too, girl, me too. This cult-favorite product removes dirt, oil, and make-up with no rinsing required! Ceramides soothe your skin and help promote elasticity and a strong skin barrier.
The Inkey List // Ok so I went a little nuts on this brand after taking into account the amazing reviews and the stellar price point. Also worth noting, it is on the “Clean at Sephora list” meaning it’s made without all those harmful ingredients. First up? Collagen Booster Firming Peptide Serum….super lightweight serum that plumps the skin and reduces the signs of aging (a.k.a. wrinkles). Smooth this on before your moisturizer for an added boost! Next I tried the Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum. For $7.99 you can achieve that dewy summer glow with tons of extra hydration and improved skin texture. Oh, and I’m already ordering more, but if Caffeine Eye Cream sounds like a dream come true… it is!
Alpha-H Instant AHA Facial Tonic // Raise your hand if you are dying for a facial, but not ready to expose yourself to that much close touching. Actually I don’t even know if spas are open these days, but for now I’m turning my own bathroom to a spa with this gem of a product. It’s an alpha hydroxy acid based serum which means you are going to get ultimate exfoliation to reveal your brightest, tightest skin. What I am trying to say is, if you are missing out on your quarterly microdermabrasion… try this!
Glow Recipe Watermelon + AHA Glow Mask // Ok so I decided I would treat myself to this mask once per week, then quickly decided it should be a nightly ritual because it’s that good and YOLO! Use this as a last step to your nighttime routine and don’t be afraid to lay it on thick. Your skin will drink it right up (yes, it’s pillow proof) and you will wake up hydrated and toned.
Dr. Jart+ Cryo Rubber Mask // Cryotherapy is all the rage these days (extreme cold exposure to help inflammation)…. and now you can do this at home to your own beautiful face! This cold mask calms and soothe the skin and you can pick any booster depending on your skincare needs (collagen, vitamin c etc…). It’s like putting cucumbers on your eyes, only better 😉
The Fun Extras
Florence Hair Fragrance by Tocca // Do you guys have those friends who always just smell so good? Do they just wake up like that? Do they just never sweat? While I keep trying to get to the bottom of this, here’s what to try in the meantime… HAIR PERFUME!! Just a little spritz in those lovely locks and you too, could be THAT girl who always smells so good. The scent is floral based and makes me think happy thoughts.
And that’s all for this month’s Sephora Haul! I would LOVE if you guys let me know about your favorite products and if you like any that I recommended. Lots of you have written in and said you purchased products from my summer make up routine and are receiving compliments left and right! If you missed last month’s Sephora Haul, you can check that out here.
