Summer at Sephora: Skincare + Makeup Picks

I’m quite proud of the fact that while I was at Sephora the other day, I walked out with only two items: my favorite body sunscreen and a new concealer. Truly self control and at its finest, don’t you think? But obviously I swatched and played with a ton of different products! These are some of the skincare and makeup items I sampled and am currently lusting over!sephora summer beauty products

  1. KILLAWATT FOIL FREESTYLE HIGHLIGHTER DUO – . swatched all 3 color duos and they’re so incredible creamy, pigmented, and have a gorgeous finish. My personal favorite was the Sand Castle/Mint’d Mojito duo (above), the blue is surprisingly wearable on the cheeks.
  2. SOL DE JANEIRO GLOW OIL – This shimmery body oil smells delish and comes in two different shades.
  3. IT COSMETICS BYE BYE UNDER EYE CREAM – Cucumber soothes, cools, and de-puffs while the caffeine in the formula helps with dark circles and firms skin. All of the It Cosmetics products have been developed by plastic surgeons, so you know they’re gonna give amazing results.
  4. TOO FACED HOLOGRAPHIC LIP TOPPER – There are 4 difference shades and all of them are gorg, these basically take whatever lipstick you have on to another level.
  5. BEAUTYBLENDER INSTACLEAN SPRAY – I currently have the cinema secrets brush cleaner which works so well and dries really quickly, but I hate that the dye in it stains my brush bristles blue! The Instaclean spray is double the price, but the ingredient’s are a lot cleaner (no dyes or parabens). Plus I do love their liquid cleanser (nothing cleans my sponges/brushes better) so I want to give this a try for sure
  6. TARTE SHADE SHIFTING LIPSTICK – The formula is super moisturizing and nourishing. Some shades are more sheer than others, so you can use them on their own or as a topper over another lipstick. On sale too BTW!
  7. MARC JACOBS COCONUT FANTASY EYESHADOW PALETTE – While I was walking around in Sephora this luxe white and rose gold packaging just screamed my name. The formula is amazing and I love that the palette is simple with just some key, versatile shades that work for any look.
  8. COOLA MINERAL PRIMERCoola spray sunscreen was actually one of the things I purchased, but obvi I had to peep the whole collection while I was there. Have you guys ever tried a mineral SPF primer? I’m so curious!
  9. FENTY BEAUTY 2-IN-1 ISLAND BLING LIQUID EYE SHIMMER – The Fenty Beauty summer collection is SO fire you guys. These would look beautiful all over the lid or if you used an angled brush it could work as a liner as well.
  10. DRUNK ELEPHANT B-HYDRA INTENSIVE HYDRATION GEL – The molecules are super tiny and the pH level level is perfect, which means maximum absorption of hydration.
  11. MILK LUMINOUS BLUR STICK PRIMER – All of the Milk “sticks” have me quite intrigued. This felt SO smooth on the skin and though it gives a matte finish, the shimmer in it adds a bit of glow.
  12. SUNDAY RILEY CLEAN LONG WEAR FOUNDATION – I absolutely love the skincare from Sunday Riley so I imagine this foundation would be just as fab. The formula doesn’t contain any synthetic fragrance or talc and the shade range is amazing! SR products are at a bit of a higher price-point, but this foundation is only $54 which is actually quite reasonable.
  13. FOREO IRIS ILLUMINATING EYE MASSAGER – Isn’t this a fun little gadget? Facial massage is SO good for reducing puffiness.
  14. HERBIVORE HYDRATE + GLOW SKINCARE MINI COLLECTION – Herbivore is one of my favorite skincare lines right now, I love that all of their products are so clean. None of them contain dyes, artificial fragrance, or synthetic preservatives. This little set is so cute! It includes Herbivore’s Pink Cloud Crème, Phoenix Cell Regenerating Oil, Rose Hydrating Mist, and Pineapple Glow Mask.
  15. URBAN DECAY BACKTALK EYE + FACE PALETTE – Mauve, blush, and berry heaven. Both the shadows + cheek colors are velvety and ultra pigmented.
