Hands up if beauty superstores like Sephora overwhelm you? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️ With so many brands offering so many different products, how do you know which ones are worth your money? I’ve wracked my brain to come up with a list of my top 10 tried and tested favourite products from Sephora… and let me tell you, it was bloody hard.
Let’s start with my very first Sephora purchase, Zoeva Brushes. These brushes are phenomenal. Back when I really started to really get into makeup, buying a set of these brushes made all.the.difference. They create light work of blending and are so so so hardy – I have had some of my Zoeva brushes for over 5 years! Definitely worth the investment.
If you have followed me for any length of time, it’ll be no surprise that this little miracle worker is on the list. There is a good reason why this is always sold out – it is incredible. Full of pigment, skincare benefits, 50+ SPF and just making your skin look bloody beautiful, the IT Cosmetics CC+ is ideal for daily wear. You can read an in-depth review here and here.
I suffer from chronically dry lips. If I go a day without balm, my lips become sore, flaky and just downright unattractive. Heavy lip treatments that really work for me are not always daytime appropriate. Except for these. The Bite Beauty Agave Lip Masks are ridiculously nourishing but also so so so beautiful, which allows for easy everyday wear that is going to make your smoochers oh-so-soft and smooth.
I am sorry if you’re a regular reader because you’re probably sick of hearing about this device, but I can’t help it. It is that good. The Foreo UFO mini has completely blown me away and I use it at least 3 times a week, without fail. It allows me a couple of minutes of me-time (which is hard to come by with a toddler) and it also does absolute wonders for my skin.
5. Tarte Tartelette Toasted Palette
As much as I wanted to include a few palettes, I settled on the Tartelette Toasted. The formula of this warm-toned neutral palette is just so easy to work with. It blends out almost effortlessly and the versatility of the palette is great. You can create simple barely there looks, to a much more vampy, rich creations and everything in between. The shades work really well together and the palette is just a beautiful addition to my collection.
This skinny little wonder has got to be the BEST brow pencil I have ever used. The microtip allows you to create individual brushstrokes and as the name suggests, super precise definition. The formula lasts all day and looks so lovely and natural. The best.
I adore Givenchy Lipsticks. The formulas are always beautiful and I just feel so bloody fancy when I whip one out of my handbag. Last year I was introduced to the Le Rouge Liquide range and it was love at first swipe. The formula is creamy and comfortable, all while full of pigment and longevity. The luxurious leather casing and user-friendly traditional lipstick-style delivery make this liquid lipstick an absolute standout.
This was another product that I didn’t expect to love as much as I do. When my skin is looking fresh AF or if I need a speedy quick touch of colour this is what I reach for every time. The Nudestix Tinted Blur Stick is so handy to use and gives your skin a lovely smooth looking finish. While it isn’t great for coverage, it does deliver even skin-tone and it blurs out imperfections for a ‘your-skin-but-better’ look. This has been my summer base go-to.
This little tub always slips through the cracks. I have used it for the longest time and rely on it for such fabulous results but somehow I always forget to mention it. But that is no more. This heavy-duty, hard-hitting peel will re-surface your skin like nothing else. Ridding my skin of texture, dry spots and even treating uneven skin tone, The FAB Facial Radiance Intensive Peel is my skincare saviour. It is that one product I reach for when my skin is looking dull, spotty, bumpy or just a bit lackluster, and it still impresses me with every use. But, I must warn you, it doesn’t tickle. If you have irritable or sensitive skin, or if you’re not a fan of that tingly peel feeling, steer well clear of this. This formula does not mess around.
There is nothing quite like this velvety smooth powder. Bye-Bye Pores completely smooths my skin, blurs pores and makes my makeup last all damn day. But, the most incredible thing is the way it sets everything in place without removing that beautiful dewy glow that usually disappears when using a setting powder. Despite having an oily skin type, I love me some glow. Of course, anything that is too dewy will usually melt off my face throughout the day. If I try and set my make-up to increase the longevity I lose that beautiful finish, but not with this. It is magic.
I couldn’t sign off on this post without including a few honourable mentions that only just missed out in the top 10 rankings.
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette – A simply stunning palette that is so very user-friendly and versatile. I take this traveling with me 9 times out of 10. The colour story is beautiful and the price is just right.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamoured Lipgloss Stick – I simply adore these glosses. They apply like a lipstick, feel like a balm but look like a delicious juicy juicy gloss. These have definitely been a fave for the last 6 months.
Herbivore Coco Rose Body Scrub – The BEST body scrub I have used, hands down. It smells like a rosy dream and just feel incredibly luxurious on the skin. The end product is an exfoliated, soft and delicious smelling body.
What are your top 10 from Sephora? I’d love to hear them.
