Beauty Insider Members can shop as many times as they want during the sale in-store and online. I’m so glad we can shop multiple times because I can never think of everything I want or need at once, so I always end up placing multiple orders.
As always, I had a recommendations video go live on the first day of the Sephora VIB Sale and will have videos throughout the Sephora Savings Event. So be sure to check my YouTube channel for favorites, recommendations, and more!
This is a great time to buy big ticket items or to shop for birthday or Mother’s Day gifts. In addition, I use these twice-yearly sales to restock beauty items and to grab some backups while they’re on sale. This is also the perfect time to try new things you’ve been eyeing.
My Sephora Recommendations
I pulled these products from each video I have planned to share a sampling of my personal Sephora must-haves you may want to try during this Sephora Savings Event.
NARS Soft Matte Concealer is my go-to concealer for covering up blemishes, dark or red spots, or facial imperfections. I apply it with a tiny brush and blend it with the warmth of my fingertips. It melts into my skin, stays on beautifully and wears well all day. Because of the soft matte texture, this is perfect for the face rather than my dry under-eye area.
With its satin-matte finish, Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup is a great buildable medium to full coverage foundation for all skin types. Because it sets down quickly and can be tricky for some people to achieve a natural application, I did an entire video on how to apply it so it looks natural and beautiful and never cakey or heavy. Once you get the hang of it, it’s super easy and quick to get natural, all-day (and all-night) wear. It’s beautiful for any occasion and is completely bulletproof, keeping your makeup flawless from morning through a late, late night.
Givenchy Prism Libre Powder is a stunningly beautiful product and is loved by many. It brightens while mattifying shine and simultaneously giving a soft lit-from-within radiance. The four shades of powder mixed together seem to have a magical effect that flatters incredibly well. It also does a fantastic job of melting into the skin to blur imperfections and pores. There are several shades to choose from. It’s amazing for all skin types and worth grabbing while it’s on sale.
If you want a great, natural, lightweight lip pencil, consider picking up the Ultra Suede Lip Pencil from MAKEUP BY MARIO during the Sephora VIB Sale. The formula is creamy yet light and perfectly pigmented. My two favorite shades are Hugh and Smokey Pink. Both are neutral “my lips but better” shades that go with virtually any lip product I wear. Hugh is the lighter of the two that went viral last year and is finally back in stock!
Finding an effective clay mask that doesn’t dry out your skin is hard. That’s why I’ve loved Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay for so long. I’ve gone through several tubes and make sure I have one on hand at all times. Original Skin draws out impurities and gently exfoliates to boost radiance and refine texture…without leaving my skin feeling dry or tight. I always notice a difference in how my skin looks and feels the morning after I use it. This is my number-one favorite mask at Sephora!
Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette has all the perfect shades for a warm summer beauty look. Instead of glitter or sparkle, you get a liquid-like sheen resulting in a flattering, radiant look. You can also double up and use this for eye looks too. I have the shade Universal, but the finish is stunningly gorgeous no matter which you choose.
Hourglass Satin Crème Lipstick is one of my favorite makeup launches of 2023. I’ve bought three shades and will probably end up with more. All you need is one swipe for high-impact creamy flattering color. What I love about this lipstick is its hydrating, smoothing formula that stays creamy but never feels thick or heavy. This quickly became a go-to favorite for me from Sephora that lives in my bag.
Drunk Elephant has been one of my favorite skincare brands for a long time. And their Polypeptide Firming Moisturizer has been a favorite for my oily/combo sensitive skin for years. It’s great for all skin types since it hydrates so well, yet never leaves you feeling heavy or greasy. It has nine signal peptides plus pygmy water lily, so you get a lot more than a basic moisturizer. Refills are now available at Sephora, which is even better!
Caliray Superproof Hydrating Setting Spray is another one of my Sephora Savings Event top picks so far. First off, it has a cloud-like mist that you just can’t beat. Second, it’s alcohol-free, so it won’t dry your skin out. Lots of setting sprays rely on alcohol to do their job, so I love finding good ones that don’t. Even in my hot and humid climate, this Surf Proof does a fantastic job of keeping my makeup looking flawless all day. Not only that but after I spray it on my face, it melts my makeup together and leaves it looking more natural. I don’t know if they intentionally created it to be a facial mist + setting spray all-in-one product, but that’s definitely what I get from it. I’ve been loving this so much!
Too Faced Cloud Crush has a natural matte finish that seems to diffuse and flatter my skin. While I appreciate radiant blush finishes, this particular finish is very skin-like and flattering. It’s perfect for those of you who don’t like any sheen to your cheeks but want something that smooths, blurs, and airbrushes. I was expecting a regular flat matte finish but got an airbrushed appearance that surprised me. Nice job Too Faced, only at Sephora!
If you’re experiencing less fullness or more hair shedding than usual, you may want to check out Briogeo Destined for Destiny Shampoo & Conditioner. This is another line I wasn’t expecting much from but ended up loving. I was filling in the scalp at my hairline and my part with Color Wow Root Cover Up pretty often. I just felt like you could see my scalp through my hair more than normal. After using the Briogeo for a while, I wasn’t having to do that anymore. I can’t 100% say this is the full reason. But the timing makes me think it played some sort of a role. I have some conditioner left but just restocked the shampoo in my Sephora sale haul.
JVN Complete Blowout Styling Milk is the perfect easy to use all-in-one hair product from Sephora. I can’t think of anything this doesn’t do, plus it’s great for all hair types and textures. This is a lightweight, heat-activated cream that styles while adding shine, smoothness, style memory, heat and frizz protection, and humidity resistance. It’s amazing to find all of that in one product that doesn’t weigh my fine hair down!
