Huda Beauty Mini Palette
This is the newest of Huda Beauty's mini palettes and I LOVE the colors! It has the most perfect shades for a fall/winter smokey eye PLUS variations in finishes. I always look for palettes that have both shimmer and matte shades so I can create more depth in my eyeshadow looks. The Haze Obsessions Palette has light shades for my lid, matte mid-tones for blending, and dark colors to add contrast and dimension! 9 colors for only $29?? Yes, please! Looking forward to wearing this all season long!
FENTY Gloss Set
FENTY mini glosses are TOPS. Rihanna knows her lip products, friends! I am SO picky about lip gloss, and these check all the boxes for me. Pretty shine, no stickiness, soft texture, and LASTS!! I love this as a gift because the 4 pack is only $36, so you can keep all the colors together or split them up for presents for your friends!
We have loved all the Biossance cleansers (this is one product Neil even steals from me, requiring regular replenishment in our house!), and this Squalane + Elderberry Jelly Cleanser is their newest addition to the cleansing line! Anytime someone asks me for skincare products with CLEAN ingredients, I always point them to Biossance. Plus, it's SO affordable! This cleanser is only $28 for the bottle and is packed full of potent, quality ingredients. The elderberry extract is a super-strong antioxidant that will protect your skin from environmental damage throughout the day. And anything with Squalane has my heart! Somehow this cleanser takes away makeup AND all the day's grime and still maintains amazing moisture levels, thanks to Squalane!
Sol de Janeiro Set
If you're just starting to travel or plan on going to visit family for the holidays, this Carnaval Flight Set needs to go straight into your suitcase! Anytime I travel, my skin dries up like a prune, so I HAVE to take moisture-packed products with me. The Bum Bum cream is one of my Sephora FAVORITES!!
This trio is only $25 and includes a mini Bum Bum cream plus two other products that are chock-full of Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí Oil, and Coconut Oil. These are all rich in fatty acids, antioxidants, and moisture-locking ingredients to take care of my skin while I'm away from home. And I love that it all goes in my carry-on! This set makes an amazing gift as well.
Laura Mercier Setting Powder
THIS is my favorite setting powder of all time. Ever. Period. I will never not have this in my makeup drawer! I had used Laura Mercier's regular translucent powder in the past and loved it, but this one is even better! The Honey color doesn't leave a white cast and blends amazingly with my foundation.
I love that it locks in makeup, absorbs oil, and seriously looks flawless ALL DAY!! This setting powder has insane reviews, so I know it's not just my new makeup obsession.
Anastasia Micro-Stroking Brow Pen
This Brow Pen keeps selling out everywhere because it is truly phenomenal!! If you want the look of micro-bladed brows but don't want to pay the pain or price tag, this is the product for you! I fill in my brows like normal with a brow pencil and then I layer this stroking pen (in Taupe) in the direction of my brow hairs. It gives it a killer 3D look, like all of a sudden, I grew a bunch of brow hairs!
It's only $22, and worth.every.penny. Hurry and grab it before it sells out again because it's definitely everyone's Sephora favorite!
Tarte foundcealer and Sponge
This is another new favorite of mine that I am so excited to share! The babassu foundcealer™ skincare foundation SPF 20 is the perfect in-between if you've been side-eyeing the Face Tape foundation because you don't want to commit to such a full coverage! If you're looking for a medium coverage AND an extra bonus of SPF, foundcealer™ is seriously amazing. It also has hyaluronic acid in the ingredient lineup, making it totally moisturizing enough to use every day!
I applied it with the Foundcealer Multi-Tasking Sponge and I AM CONVERTED! tarte's makeup sponges are leaps and bounds ahead of other makeup sponges (believe me, I've tried them ALL!) It works beautifully with their foundation and the unique sponge shape gets your makeup blended, even in all the nooks and crannies!
Biossance Uplifted & Bright Set
I'm obsessed with this Uplifted & Bright Set and love the idea of gifting it! If you have someone in your life (or you, yourself, and you!) who is already utilizing great basic skincare, this set is such a treat!! It's just $72 for a $127 value and bursting with amazing ingredients!
The Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil (1 oz) is a winning product that I have been loving from this set. Any time I can get Vitamin C power on my skin, I am HERE FOR IT! Add that to the luxury and healing properties of rose oil, and this brightening oil is giving me all the glowiness I need!
The Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum. This plant-derived Retinol (an anti-aging superstar) is less sensitizing than regular Retinols but still gives all the best skin benefits! It reduces the look of fine lines, smooths texture and improves overall tone and can be used on ALL skin types! In fact, in clinical trials, 100% of people felt that the formula was gentle, yet powerful, and saw a visible improvement in fine lines and wrinkles!
The Biossance Squalane + Omega Repair Cream works SO well. It goes on as a very thick cream, so a little goes a looooong way! If you're looking for a night cream to repair the moisture barrier of your skin while visibly reducing fine lines, this is for YOU.
Dyson Long Barrel Attachment
I was SO excited about this find at Sephora! If there is one thing I could say about the otherwise near-perfect Dyson Air Wrap, sometimes my super long hair doesn't fit completely in the wand. This long barrel attachment is the answer to that!! I'm totally adding it to my cart during the Sephora Holiday Savings Event and I cannot WAIT to use it!
Ever since I've been pregnant and nursing for like three years in a row (anyone relate?), my hairline has left something to be desired. Even though I know it's hormonal, I hate that I have thinning spots by my temples. My hair is falling out for the second time in a row in just as many years, so I want all the help I can get.
This BeautyBio set awakens the scalp and creates fuller and stronger hair in just 60 days of use! Did you know that hair growth begins with a healthy scalp? Makes sense, but I had never thought about it like that before. This set dissolves product buildup, regulates oil production, and soothes your scalp so healthy hair can grow to its heart's content without anything to stop it.
