Twice a year, I love to stock up on my favorites from Sephora during their sale - especially the luxury items. Before you can even start shopping, though, make sure you're a part of Sephora's Beauty Insider program. It's free to enroll, and you can work your way up to some amazing perks - think free two-day shipping, free deluxe samples, and early access to sales PLUS extra percentages off items (like this one!). Here's this year's schedule:
VIB Rouge: 15% off from 18 - 24 April with code ROUGESPRING
VIB: 15% off from 19-24 April with code VIBSPRING
Beauty Insider: 10% off from 20-23 April with code BISPRING
For an added bonus, Sephora works with Ebates, the site/app that literally pays you for shopping online. Sign up HERE (Full disclosure, I get a kickback when at least two people sign up, so THANK YOU for using my link! Once you sign up, you'll get your own to share.).
If you're like me, you keep a running list of your wants and "needs" - I've been prepping for this sale for weeks - but if you need some inspiration, here's what I'm picking up.
Invisibobble Original Traceless Hair Ring
I'm so excited to try these because as someone with slippery hair, these promise to keep everything in place during a run.
dpHUE Clarifying Shampoo
I love this new-ish brand by Kristin Cavallari's longtime colorist and am excited to restock this product. A clarifying shampoo dissolves not only all the product build-up, but also all the natural oils your scalp produces; a GOOD clarifying shampoo does all of this without stripping any of the good stuff. I've always used the shampoo by Neutrogena, but this one is a game-changer. I thought my hair was clean, but I had to apply this shampoo THREE times to finally get a gentle lather.
Dermarche Labs Roloxin Lift - Gold
These masks are like a face lift that also plumps. I have a pretty deep laugh line - after using this mask, it was gone! The results only last a day, but if you have a special event this. is. a. miracle.
Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydrating Lifting Mask
We know how much I love a sheet mask (more HERE), and I recently used this one before a big night out - it was perfect. This is an excellent prep before makeup because it leaves your skin slightly tacky, which is the best canvas for long-wearing makeup.
Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
My friend Kristin introduced me to this little gem (shout out!). While I still love my Bioderma to remove makeup, this product cannot be beat for dissolving all traces of glitter and eyelash glue.
La Mer has landed at Sephora! In other words, we can actually get it on sale now. If you'd just like to dip your toes into La Mer (see what I did there?), I can't suggest The Lip Balm highly enough. Find a dupe, also available from Sephora, HERE.
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream Plus SPF 50+
Restocking this amazing cream - it slides on your skin and makes it look perfect, while providing sunscreen, all day long.
Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eye Shadow Palette
Every shadow color you will ever need! This palette covers all the bases for any look you desire, and you can purchase a separate shimmer or metallic shadow if you want a little oomph. Read more about this palette and how to use it HERE.
Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer
You know the concealer I'm constantly raving about (if not, more HERE)? Now's your chance to try it yourself. My favorite use for this is as a highlighter at the end of my makeup to bring everything together.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored High Shine Lip Lacquer Gloss
As I mentioned last week (check it out HERE), I use this gloss as my everyday go-to. It gives you a gorgeous, high-shine finish with zero stickiness. There are so many colors, from sheer to opaque finishes, and this will absolutely carry you through the Summer months.
