It’s about that time again y’all. The sale that kicks off every beauty lover’s holiday season is finally here - The Sephora Beauty Insider Sale. If you are a “VIB” or a “Rouge” member, you will get 20% of all purchases during your designated weekend and if you are a “Beauty Insider,” you will get 15%. (Just check your email!)

If you are looking for some beauty related gifts for your friends & fam, or you just want to treat yourself, you’ve come to the right place.

Here are a few things I highly recommend you take a look at, with swatches of course!



Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

The fact that Aunty Jackie Aina had a hand in this shade expansion should be reason enough to give this foundation a look. But if you need more convincing, I can honestly say this foundation formula has an amazing finish and the shade range is on point!

Too Faced Born This Way Multi Use Sculpting Concealer

To be quite honest, I had to give this concealer a harsh critique for being named a “sculpting” concealer and not having any deep shades to sculpt with. 😩 Despite that major faux pas, this concealer is actually pretty bomb for under eye brightening and spot concealing. I love using “Mahogany” under the eyes because it brightens while also color correcting for my skin tone.

Fenty beauty match stick

These match sticks tend to get a bad rap for being a little dry and hard to blend, but I find them quite easy to work with once they’ve been warmed up on the back of the hand. “Espresso” is my go to contour stick. You also get a really good amount of product with these, which is also a plus!



NARS Velvet Lip Glide

The Nars Velvet Lip Glide in “Mars” has got to be one of my all time favorite nude lippies. This unique formula sits somewhere between a gloss and a velvet lipstick. It’s got the glossy finish but it also has pigment, longevity, and feels super comfy on the lips. These are must haves!

Fenty beauty stunna lipsticks

Obsessed can’t even begin to describe how I feel about the Stunna lippie formula. They have the pigmentation of a paint but they dry down to a comfortable matte finish that lasts all day. Just be careful not to apply too much and let them dry down before moving your lips around. A little of this product goes a lonnng way.



Pat Mcgrath Labs Bronze Temptation Palette

This is my very first Pat Mcgrath eyeshadow palette and Inow completely understand the hype. These shadows are insanely pigmented and make blending a breeze. The duochromes especially are super unique in color and make this palette worth its hefty price tag.


Violet Voss Crème Brûlée palette

This is a great inexpensive warm toned palette that is perfect for everyday use. (Thank goodness for all the indie brands that have come to Sephora!) It has all the colors you need to create simple fall vibes or turnt up glam.


Hope you enjoyed these recommendations! What will you be picking up??
