New Sephora Products To Try
St. Tropez Tanning Spray // Merit Highlighter // Lawless Lipstick // Saie Highlighter // Summer Fridays Toner // Saie Bronze Highlighter // Saie Cream Blush // Saie Marshmallow Highlighter // Westman Atelier Highlight Stick // Merit Foundation Stick // Westman Atelier Blush Stick // Saie Mascara
I had some great success with new products in 2020. Here are some of the new Sephora finds I’m excited to try. I’m also eyeing this glow body & face powder this dry shampoo, and this metabolism booster. I’m also wanting to test out a clean primer… maybe this one by Tatcha, this one by ILIA or this one by LILAH B. Here are a few more of my recent purchases that I’m currently reviewing!
St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist // I’m very excited to try this product!! Allegedly it absorbs into skin under or over make-up, as primer and setting spray, with no need to rub or blend in. They say that you will develop a golden glow within 4-8 hours that won’t blend into clothing or bedding.
MERIT Day Glow Highlighting Balm // This highlighter has squalane and olive fruit oil so your skin stays dewy and moisturized even after you remove your makeup. It’s a natural glow.
Saie Dew Balm Bouncy Marshmallow Highlighter // Another highlighter that moisturizes, this one with hyaluronic acid. Saie’s highlighter was a Best of Allure Beauty pick.
Saie Mini Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter // While this is a highlighter, it’s more of a gel that can be mixed with your skincare or makeup to give you an all-over dewy look. There are two shades and I chose Starglow.
Saie Dew Blush Liquid Cheek Blush // This is a water-based gel blush that melts into your skin giving you an even flush that’s not blotchy or streaky. Wearing shade Rosy.
Saie Mascara 101 Lengthening and Lifting // I’m always trying to find a clean mascara but it’s hard to find one that does the job. This 100 percent naturally derived one has both beeswax and shea butter to coat your lashes and not flake.
Summer Fridays Overtime Mask // I love the Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask, so I thought to try this Overtime mask.
MERIT The Minimalist Perfecting Complexion Foundation and Concealer Stick // This two-in-one stick is supposed to replace your foundation and concealer. A moisturizing formula of fatty acids and Sea Daffodil extract this is great to streamline your makeup routine for summer.
Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick // This color stick can be used both on cheeks or lips as it’s pigmented and super hydrating. I picked shade Chouchette.
CristinCooper.Com Top 10 Sephora Sellers
ILIA – Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara // Currently my most-worn mascara!
IGK Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Anti-Frizz Smoothing Spray // The best spray to protect your hair!
LAWLESS Satin Luxe Classic Cream Lipstick // My new go-to lip. I love colors “Annie”, “Fawn” & “Wedding Day”
rms beauty Living Luminizer Glow Quad Mini // I love this highlight quad for eyes and cheeks.
Tarte Fake Awake Eyeliner // This eyeliner instantly makes you look more awake.
Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream // One of my top 3 eye creams ever.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Ready To Roll Brush Set // The best brush set Sephora has in my opinion!
BECCA Cosmetics Skin Love Brighten & Blur Primer // This is a great primer!
ILIA Multi-Stick Cheek & Lip // A new blush I’m loving. I wear “tenderly”.
Hourglass Vanish™ Airbrush Concealer // One of my favorite concealers. I wear “silk”.
My Recent Favorites
If I had to pick my top 5 recent purchases, It would be the ILIA Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara, this Kerastase Fresh Affair Refreshing Fine Fragrance Dry Shampoo, LAWLESS The Little One Eyeshadow Palette, Tom Ford’s Soleil Glow Bronzer and of course, the LANCER Clarifying Detox Mask with Green Tea. In all honesty, the LANCER mask is maybe one of my favorite face masks to date. It helps clear up imperfections and reduce redness almost in a single use.
If you want to try some clean beauty, I would get this ILIA Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara, the ILIA Multi-Stick Cheek & Lip or one of LAWLESS’ Satin Luxe Classic Cream Lipsticks. If you like mini sizes, try this Tata Harper mini kit, of this clean beauty starter kit. Barbara Stern is all the rage and I’m not sure that I can stomach $325 for a mini kit but if you have been dying to try it, this would be a good option.
What I Stock Up on During the Sephora Sale
St. Tropez Tanning Mousse // Beauty Blender // Clarins V-Facial Intensive Wrap // Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam // Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick // Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray // Peace Out Acne Dots // BECCA Under Eye Primer & Brightener and color corrector // IGK Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Anti-Frizz Smoothing Spray // Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Clarins V-Facial Intensive Wrap // My ALL TIME FAVORITE mask.
Beauty Blender // The original Beauty Blender is expensive but there is honestly no true dupe, so I always get it on sale.
BECCA Under Eye Primer // This under eye primer is a must and I also highly recommend the setting powder, the brightener and color corrector, and the brighten and blur primer. Give me all the BECCA since they’re going out of business. Still not over it.
Peace Out Acne Dots // I’ve tried a few other brands of acne patches and these are by far the best.
St. Tropez Tanning Mousse // Summer is just around the corner, so I stock up on my favorite self tanner so I don’t blind you with my white legs. I have tried basically every tanning mousse and lotion and this is the most natural looking to me!
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick // You know I didn’t love their foundation at first, but I love the Westman Atelier Highlight Stick. It is so good and makes your skin look incredibly dewy. It lasts a long time so this is when you should get it to last until the next Sephora VIB Sale.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam // A dry shampoo that actually cleans your hair. Cause who really wants to wash their hair all the time?
All-Time Favorite Sephora Products to Get on Sale
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation // The best. This is my current go-to foundation. It’s lightweight and buildable and is great for everyday! I wear shade 5!
Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick // When I first got this foundation stick I wasn’t as impressed as I was expecting to be. The shade was completely wrong and I thought that it settled into my pores a bit. After some trial and error I have grown to like it. It works best if you wear a primer first and really buff it in with a brush instead of trying to apply with your fingers. I also noticed that it lasted a really long time! First of all, it latest a really long time.
Supergoop! CC Screen 100% Mineral CC Cream SPF 50 // If you are looking for a buildable CC cream with SPF, this is your product! This super-clean, oil-free, color-correcting cream has 100 percent mineral SPF 50 and creates a flawless, natural finish. I wear 206N.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation // One of my all-time favorite foundations! I wear shade 5.5. This one is very similar to the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation (Shade 125) but I think has a little longer wear.
IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream // Always a crowd favorite. I apply this stuff with my fingers for everyday wear! Love that it has SPF built into it and that it’s packed full of antioxidants. I wear light/medium.
Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer // This full-coverage, weightless, waterproof concealer with a natural finish containing tiny powders that blur and brighten for up to 16 hours! This crease-resistant liquid concealer reflects light and blends seamlessly into skin, diffusing the look of pores and fine lines. Hourglass concealer also has a highly pigmented formula that evens skin tone and diminishes the appearance of imperfections, leaving you with a natural, airbrushed finish. I wear color, “silk”.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector in medium. // If you want one product to conceal your under-eyes, this one is amazing!!
Primers & Setting Powder
Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen // This is a really great primer that will give you SPF protection and act as great starter for smooth makeup application. It’s very lightweight and goes on incredibly smooth.
BECCA Skin Love Brighten & Blur Primer // I LOVE THIS PRIMER! It’s maybe the best, most weightless primer I have ever used and it leaves my makeup feeling so silky! I wear it under cc cream or foundation and find that it helps my makeup look fresh all day long! Stock up during the sale.
BECCA Cosmetics Anti-Fatigue Under-eye Primer // After I apply skincare, I apply this primer to my under eye. It’s an anti-fatigue eye balm and primer in one that cools on contact and preps skin for smooth makeup application. Cucumber, matcha green tea and caffeine help it to smooth your skin, decrease puffiness and blur the look of fine lines.
Highlighters, Bronzers, & Blush
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Highlighter Wand // If I could start a fan club for this highlighter, I totally would. I apply it to my cheek bone, the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow or the inner corner of the eye for a pretty glow. All of the colors are beautiful! My favorite is color “spotlight”.
Becca Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop // Another incredible highlighter in the best selling shade, Champagne Pop! I think 2019 was the year I realized the importance of highlighter and I can promise you, I’m never turning back.
Becca Sunlit Bronzer // I bought this blush a couple of months ago and love the hue and the subtle shimmer. I got color Ipanema Sun so that I could wear it into the summer months.
Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer // This is my favorite matte bronzer! You can get the mini for just $17 and it will last you forever!!
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick // You know I’ve didn’t love their foundation at first, but I love the Westman Atelier Highlight Stick. It lasts a long time so this is when you should get it to last until the next Sephora VIB Sale.
Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette // This is hands-down my favorite eyeshadow palette!! I love the natural shades and the mixes of matt and shimmers.
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette // I love this palette and it’s all I take when I travel! Pillow Talk & Dolce Vita are my two favorite shades.
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette // This best-selling palette includes a collection of 9 neutral shades that can help you create looks ranging from subtle to bold. I will say, it’s on the shimmery side, so if you’re more of a matte eyeshadow person you might want to try this tried and true palette instead!
IT COSMETICS Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara // I go back and forth on this mascara because I have had several bottles of it dry out on me. I have determined that it is because I leave them in my car. I have kept this one in my bathroom and the application is still flawless. It makes your lashes look insanely long and thick.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara // This is my other favorite fancy mascara! Also, did you know that Tarte is a clean beauty brand?!?
Lipstick // Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect & Pillow Talk or Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick Collection in 70 Le Nu. LAWLESS Satin Luxe Classic Cream Lipstick in “Annie”, “Fawn” & “Wedding Day”
SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner // This toner is EXPENSIVE but man oh man, does it work!
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask // I use this mask any time my skin is feeling dry or inflamed and am always amazed at the results the next morning!
Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops // My go-to tanning drops. I put them on with my moisturizer in the am. Also, I always buy the shade “dark” because I think that it goes farther.
St Tropez Self Tanning Classic Bronzing Mouse // This is the body sunless tanner that I have used for YEARS!
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm // My favorite makeup remover! It’s so gentle on your skin and a little bit goes a LONG way!
Eye patches // I have SO MANY eye patches I love but my favorite two are Peter Thomas Roth 24 Gold Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches & Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks
Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask // This is a fancy mask that will make your skin GLOW! Kim K’s Makeup artist even used it on her before the MET last year!
BIOSSANCE Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream // I have been using this hydrating eye cream made with Marine Algae Complex for weeks and I am loving it. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in as few as seven days. Paracress Extract lifts, smooths, and firms the look of skin, Marine Algae Complex reduces the appearance of fine lines, and Squalane locks in moisture.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Cream // Charlotte herself spent 20 years perfecting this eye cream formula! It contains ingredients that brighten dark circles, smooth & firm the delicate under eye area, and boost elasticity. The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue is one of my all time favorite eye creams and I think it has made all the difference this winter!
NuFACE Mini // Go check out my instagram highlights on this tool! It is a micro-current device for your face and will VISIBLY lift & tone!
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray // The number one hair product I own! It gives you crazy volume, texture, and helps hold your style!
Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo & Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner // My favorite go-to shampoo & conditioner! I bought the Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo for the first time over the summer and haven’t looked back since.
Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil // This reparative styling oil is from one of my favorite haircare brands and is great for all hair types!
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam // Use this dry shampoo foam and you will never go back!!
IGK Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Smoothing Spray // This is a miracle product for protecting your hair from heat!! I also love this leave-in product!!
HUM Gummies // I take these vitamins daily and have for years! They help keep my hair healthy with a host of vitamins, including Biotin.
SinglePass 1.25″ Professional Ceramic Curling Iron // The only curling iron I use! It is made with tourmaline which puts off negative ions as it heats and helps to protect your strands. Plus, the curls last forever since negative ions actually seal the cuticle!
Charlotte Tilbury Complexion Brush // This is a great brush for applying foundation or concealer!
Beautyblender // This is my go-to method for applying makeup! I LOVE the original and think that the dupes just don’t compare, so I always get them during this sale.
