Top 5 most underrated products included in the sale according to Corrine

underrated sephora items
  1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation: Love this full coverage foundation so so much. Always surprised it doesn’t get more hype from other beauty bloggers.
  2. Confidence in a Cream Anti-Aging Hydrating Moisturizer: Of all of the Sephora skin cream I’ve tried, this is one of THE best. Esp if you have dry skin, or live in a dry climate. I’m so surprised how few people talk this one up!
  3. Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo: This stuff is stupid expensive so i only like to buy it when it’s on sale. But dang. It’s good. Always surprised how little I see it talked about compared to other dry shampoos!
  4. tartlette tubing mascara: THIS mascara was way at the bottom of the list when I sorted by best-seller. But, it is AMAZING. If I was only allowed to pick one for the rest of my life today, this would be it.
  5. Bye Bye Dark Spots Concealer: This concealer – I am so obsessed. I haven’t used a different concealer since I tried this one! I haven’t seen anyone else talk about it yet…?!?!!

Top 5 most overrated products from the sale according to Corrine

overrated products at sephora
  1. Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Liquid Foundation: This foundation was cakey and heavy and not my fave.
  2. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Moisturizer: Wanted to love this — really did not. Made me break out and I tried it more than once bc so many people are obsessed. Not a fan.
  3. Amika Dry Shampoo: This is a very unpopular opinion, be so many ppl love this dry shampoo and claim it’s their holy grail. I don’t love the way it smells!
  4. BADgal BANG! volumizing mascara: I threw this mascara in the garbage * every time I tried it after putting a full face of makeup on, eyeshadow and everything, I regretted using this mascara and wished I could wash it off but it’s one of their best sellers. 
  5. Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer: People rave about this concealer…I tried it and really wanted to like it, and I was pretty underwhelmed. 

Here’s what will sell out FIRST during the Sephora Savings Event

It’s happened to all of us, hasn’t it? There’s a great sale going on and we have every intention of finally scoring that one item (or two or three…) that’s been on our list – then before we can blink an eye, the item sold out (insert crying emoji here!). That’s the very reason we came up with this list.

These are the items that are super well loved, highly-rated AND have a reputation of selling out that we recommend jumping on the very first, because you guessed it, they will sell out quick!

sephora savings event what items will sell out first

1. Dyson Airwrap

Is there any surprise that this is first on the list?! Once I finally gave the Dyson Airwrap a spin, I was BLOWN AWAY (ha!) at how magical this little device was. I get the hype. The attachments will round brush dry or curl your hair. It does take a minute to figure out the curling process, but once I did I was ELATED by how smooth the process was! It really does smooth out your hair while curling each section and gives you crazy good volume as it curls.

Not only is this one of THE highest sell-out risk items, it’s also hard to even find IN STOCK most of the time! And when we do come across a rare deal on the Dyson Airwrap, it usually sells out within an hour of when we post about it.

If you’ve been dying to try the Dyson Airwrap, add this to your cart ASAP, because it WILL sell out during this Sephora beauty sale

2. Shark FlexStyle

If you’re craving the versatility of the Dyson Airwrap but cringing at even the sale price, I have a seriously amazing solution for you.

We are obsessed with the Shark FlexStyle!! Salon worthy blow outs at home and in truly record time. If you’ve had eyes for the Dyson but couldn’t get past the price tag, this is the perfect compromise! We couldn’t believe how easy this tool was to use upon first use. Voluminous blow out? Done. Soft waves? No problem. Sleek and smooth? You got it.

Really though, no matter your skill level, this styling tool does wonders and is something we reach for over and over. PS: this would make such a nice Mother’s Day gift (send it to your significant other while it’s still on sale!).

3. COLOR WOW Anti-Frizz Treatment

This COLOR WOW Dream Coat Anti-Frizz Treatment is the ultimate anti-humidity, magic potion, game changer our hair care routine was missing! Mist this all over freshly washed/damp hair to fight frizz and lock in moisture that lasts for up to 4 shampoos. We love the way this acts as a mini keratin treatment giving us the most soft luscious locks all spring + summer long.

4. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is another one you’ll want to grab fast. It is hands down the MOST powerful blow dryer I’ve ever used in my life, and I’ve tried a TON of high-end dryers out of desperation to find something that will dry my hair faster and more efficiently.

I have thick, long hair that I swear takes me HOURS to dry. Every time I go to the DryBar, I always hear “Wow! Your hair takes a long time to dry!” Mind you, that’s with ZERO extensions and I’m definitely grateful for that but it’s just so crazy how much my hair LOVES to retain water.

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer has become a GAME CHANGER for that reason because it literally has cut the time in HALF to dry! (Can I get a hallelujah?!) This Sephora beauty sale is the perfect time to buy it for up to 20% off!

5. Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

High sell out risk alert! Be sure to scoop up your favorite color of this viral liquid blush, shades are already going FAST. Beautifully pigmented, a little goes a long way with this blush that blends seamlessly!

I first fell in love with this blush last fall and ever since it’s been an absolute FAVE. I especially love it in the color “Happy”, but there’s lots of other really pretty colors to choose from.

(You will not like this blush if you use too much and smear it all over your cheeks – I’m serious when I say a little goes a longggg way!) No more having to pinch your cheeks midday for some extra color because your blush wore off. This stuff is so long-lasting, and the pigmentation is so beautiful on! Love, love, love it!

6. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Beauty Blush Wands

These Matte Beauty Blush Wands by Charlotte Tilbury have been a best-seller this year and we’re predicting they’ll sell out early! These are well loved and the wand makes for a quick and easy application. This is one thing that I’m for sure adding to my cart during this Sephora beauty sale!

7. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This award winning Luminous Silk Foundation from Giorgio Armani has over 4,000 nearly perfect reviews!! Glowing reviews and glowing skin? That’s a win-win. It’s on the pricier side, but if you’re determined to find the very best foundation out there, this is a must. It’s weightless and hydrating and makes your skin look totally flawless and natural! I wear the color “7.”

8. Dior BACKSTAGE Foundation

Story time: I’ve tried buying this foundation SEVERAL times and it always sells out before I can ever remember to buy it! It’s one of Sephora’s top-sold foundations and claimed by many beauty bloggers and professional makeup artists as their holy grail, ride or die, staple foundation. This will be the Sephora beauty sale that I get my hands on this foundation – especially for up to 20% off!

9. BeautyBio GLOfacial Blue LED Clarifying Tool

This powerful blue light tool has a reputation of selling out! Consider this a facial, minus a trip to the spa (which let’s be honest, can be a hard thing to make time for!). If reducing black heads while clarifying and plumping up your skin sounds appealing, this is the gadget for you!

More favorites (on sale) we know you’ll LOVE

top picks from the sephora savings event

1. IT Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow Foundation

This foundation has been a LONG TIME love of mine, but the newer glow formula is so good if you want a lighter look with the same benefits! I also love that it’s packed with good skincare, so if you’re in a hurry and you happened to skip that step for the day (sometimes I’m guilty of that!) this has you covered on all fronts. This is the perfect time to try it and save some pennies during this Sephora beauty sale!

2. Dual-Sided Makeup Brush

Make sure you use THIS makeup brush with the IT Cosmetics CC Cream! Trust me, you’ll thank me for this tip. You’ll go from thinking it’s pretty good to being IN LOVE if you use the brush it was meant to be paired with. It’s also pretty awesome for blush and highlighter on the go. I love anything 2 for 1!

3. Charlotte Tilburry Lip Lustre Lip Gloss

This lip gloss isn’t brand new on the market, but it’s a recent discovery for me and I am IN LOVE. The quintessential CT “pillow talk” shade but in a lip gloss, YES PLEASE. It’s the perfect neutral, nude/pink color to that instantly makes lips look fuller. It’s the only thing I’ve been wearing on my lips all of spring break (worn in both pics below). Buy this!

4. Bronze Balm + Gel Highlighter

These are two new favorites of our Mint Arrow team members! First, this Merit sheer to cream buildable bronzer will give you a gorgeous summer glow all year round that can even double as an easy cream contour. We’re loving the trend of applying this first along with concealer to softly diffuse any contouring before our foundation application. The perfect subtly sculpted technique.

Pair it with this Saie highlighter for the perfect natural look. This is the perfect base layer under makeup and gives a gorgeous luminosity to the skin. PS: this is even amazing for no makeup days just to bring some life to the skin!

5. Leave In Conditioner + Wave Spray

This Dae cactus flower Dae Cactus Flower Leave-In-Conditioner and Hibiscus Wave Spray are the PERFECT combo for your summer hair. Use it while your hair is air drying to bring out your natural waves, or add it in after you’ve styled your hair for extra hold! They smell amazing and bring hydration and that effortless summer hair look we’re all after (think coastal cowgirl Pinterest vibes). WIN WIN!

6. Makeup Eraser

These Makeup Eraser cloths have been a game-changer for me for a long time! These are antibacterial and dermatologist tested and are even amazing for lash extension longevity. You can get the Original Makeup Eraser makeup remover cloth on sale during this Sephora beauty sale.

7. Urban Decay Setting Spray

I LOVE and swear by this Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray! It’s what I used on my IGTV tutorial here and I’ve been using it for YEARS. It does such a good job ensuring your makeup will stay all day! I am so excited that this is part of this Sephora beauty sale.

8. Pore-Diffusing Primer

This pore-diffusing primer REALLY does work to give you a perfectly smooth canvas before any foundation. I’m loving it for my more liquidy foundations, and my creamier ones, too!

I originally gave it a try because I saw it had such high reviews, but I’ve continued to use it regularly because it makes my foundation go on super smooth and stay longer throughout the day.

9. DermaFlash

This little DermaFlash device removes dead skin cells AND peach fuzz at.the.same.time. It’s all the things we need for our face, right in one device, swathed in the cutest lilac hue. Any and all skincare will penetrate WAY better after pores and hair are cleaned off our faces, and I love how user friendly this is!

It’s a similar idea to my tried and true PMD, with the hair removing power of my beloved Tinkle! Two birds, one stone.  You can take a look at this post for all the answers to your questions, plus even more reasons why I LOVE this device.

10. IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil

This universal brow pencil from IT Cosmetics is a great alternative to my favorite Anastasia Brow Wiz! I love that the color can work for anyone and that it is buildable! It’s super creamy so you have to use a light hand with it, but it’s so easy to apply and gives great color pay off!

11. Benefit Brow Gel

I neglected this Benefit Brow Gel for quite a while, until I saw a TikTok on how I’ve been using it wrong ALL THIS TIME. You’re actually supposed to use the flat side of the brush to help set your brows in place. I tried this and, WOW. Game CHANGER. Dig this out if you have one sitting in the back of your makeup drawer, or grab it now because you are gonna love it more than all your other brow gels once you try it this way. Add this to your cart during this Sephora beauty sale if you want to level up your brow game!

12. Aluminum-Free Deodorant

This Rio Deo deodorant is hands down THE BEST smelling aluminum free deodorant I’ve ever tried…AND…it actually WORKS, too! Hallelujah. So excited that you can get it on sale right now during this Sephora beauty sale!

13. Moroccan Oil Heat Protectant

This Moroccan Oil heat protectant smells SO GOOD, (and works well too) it’s hard to want to use anything else! It’s great for all hair types and keeps your hair looking healthy by protecting it from thermal damage.

14. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Dark Spots Concealer

This new concealer + dark spot corrector is AMAZING. It conceals so well and the little included brush on the bottom blends your concealer out so perfectly. Plus it has built-in skincare that’s clinically proven to fade dark spots and other skin texture concerns with repeated use. I am OBSESSED. It’s one of those things that I haven’t stopped using since the day I tried it. HIGHLY recommend adding it to your cart during this Sephora beauty sale.

15. BeautyBio Micro Needling Set

I am actually, completely, TRULY obsessed with the GloPRO. I cannot believe how much I really enjoy using this product and how much difference I’ve seen in my skin. This little tool has revolutionized at-home skincare and even won awards to prove it!

I can tell a HUGE difference even with the skincare I’ve used for years because I know my skin is getting to utilize all the benefits when I use this! Because of the pathways, the GloPRO creates in the skin, products are absorbed 200x better!!

This GloPRO set includes microneedling facial regeneration tool, 2 oz. the balance PH balancing gel cleanser, and 0.3 oz. gel cream.

16. IT Cosmetics CC Cream (the OG)

This stuff is a CULT FAVE of soooo many beauty bloggers and beauty professionals. IN FACT, when I was at QVC a while ago, their professional makeup artist used this exact stuff on me.

She picked it over the bottles and bottles of every brand of full coverage foundation I know and love (and some I haven’t even tried) and when she pulled it out to use it on me, I was like “oohh I love that stuff,” and she goes “I KNOW isn’t it the best?!” It really is the best CC cream I’ve ever used. Period.
