Thank you to Sephora and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post! As always, all products in this post were selected by me and all of the thoughts (including the love of makeup) are 100% authentically mine.
Calling all beauty lovers! Last month I kicked off a new series where I’ll be sharing a monthly beauty haul focused on the newest & most noteworthy items from Sephora. This month I’m excited to share with you a few new beautiful palettes and a hair oil that you absolutely have to try. I’m also rounding up my favorite new sets from Sephora. I think sets are an excellent way to try new items and they also make fantastic gifts! With the holidays right around the corner, now would be a perfect time to cross off all of your friend, mother-in-law, sister and white elephant gifts!
Sephora is undoubtedly my favorite source for all of my beauty needs an I routinely rely on their product descriptions, “how to use” notes and website reviews. As you look through each of the items below don’t forget to check out the reviews, similar items and the wealth of information on Sephora.com. While you’re on their site, make sure you sign up for Sephora’s Beauty Insider program. You can rack up points and cash them in for all kinds of rewards. Plus, they offer exclusive sales and incentives. I highly recommend signing up so that you can cash in on all of the rewards!
As a reminder, all of the items in today’s Sephora Haul were hand-picked by yours truly from Sephora.com. I have tested them out and tried them over and over before giving you my final review. It’s also important to note that all of these reviews are 100% mine and 100% honest about my personal experiences with the products. I hope that you learn something new, find something you love and are inspired to give a new color, shade, tip, trick or technique a try!
October’s Must-Have Products from Sephora: HUDA Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette // Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotize Palette // Olaplex Bonding Oil // NARS Softcore Blush + Balm Set // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
This Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotize Palette is a beauty!! I would recommend “Happy Glow” or “Dream Glow” for daily wear and “Love Glow” or “Seduce Glow” for when you want to add a little extra drama. The pigment on these shades is amazing and I love how easily they all pair with each other. Head on over to my Instagram stories today and I’ll show you how to use them!
I am very impressed with this vegan Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. With two finishing powders, a strobe powder, bronzer, blush & strobe blush, is easy to get a subtle or a sultry glow. I am a sucker for the “Iridescent Strobe Light” highlighter and the “Sublime Flush” blush. In general I love a highlighting & contouring palette because you can easily add a pop of a darker color or mix two different shades together. The ease of use coupled with the beautiful finish makes this palette a must-have on my list!
The other items I’m loving this month are the Olaplex Bonding Oil, the HUDA Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette and the NARS Softcore Blush + Balm Set. I have been using Olaplex products since this summer and cannot recommend them enough. I recently started using the Olaplex Bonding Oil as a heat-protectant and can already tell a difference in my flyaways and overall hair strength. I have the HUDA Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette and have loved it so much that I decided to try out the HUDA Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette. I have been very impressed with the quality of all of the HUDA Beauty products and think this eye palette is a beautiful, light option for people with fair skin or who just want a lighter eye. It is show in shade “Light”. As far as the NARS set, I have the full-size in both products that are featured in the NARS Softcore Blush + Balm Set but I couldn’t resist the minis for travel! This would make a GREAT stocking stuffer!
