Sephora Spring Sale: What to get? | My recommendations!

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! As some of you, or most of you may know, the Sephora Spring Sale is just around the corner. This upcoming weekend, April 13th – 16th is the first weekend of the sale, available to VIB Rouge members only, who will receive 15% off their purchases. After that, the sale will be open to all Beauty Insider levels April 20th-23rd, where VIB Rouge and VIB get 15% off and BI get 10% off of their purchase.

I think we all know that sales at Sephora are rare, so most of us take this opportunity to stock up on some of our favourite items, or splurge on those luxury items that we otherwise wouldn’t. This upcoming sale has certainly gotten me thinking about what I would like to purchase, but also what I would suggest for you to purchase!

Below, I have listed some of my favourite makeup, tools, skincare and perfume recommendations. While some of these products are on the more expensive side, they are tried and true products in my collection that I absolutely love! So let’s get into it!

Makeup

Highlighters

Hourglass Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 2.06.00 PM

These cream highlighters are easily my favourite highlighters that I own. When applied with a damp sponge, they look like your skin with an added glow. No powdery residue, just your skin with a beautiful shine that can be built up to be truly blinding! The number one shade that I would recommend is Champagne Flash, because it is a classic champagne shade that I think would work for most skin tones. But I also own Pink Flash and Rose Gold Flash, which are also so beautiful!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter

This highlighter definitely lives up to the hype. It is such a beautiful shade and I love how buildable it is. You can check out my full review here, which also includes shade comparison swatches to other gold highlighters!

Urban Decay X Kristen Leanne Beauty Beam Highlighter Palette

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 2.08.52 PM

With this palette being on sale right now, this is an extra good deal! I love the shades in this palette, and the powder formula is actually so creamy! This is the type of highlight that can be built up to be VERY metallic, but you can also keep it a little more on the subtle side. You can’t go wrong with this price though!

Blush

Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 2.10.21 PM

This was actually one of the first products that I reviewed on my blog! This is one of my favourite blush palettes to use. I LOVE the shade “Peachy Love” and I always mix all three together when using it, but you can certainly use them separately. If you want more information, you can check out my original review here. The one bad thing about this blush trio is the price: you get a ridiculously small amount of product for how much you are paying. Therefore, if there is ever a time to get this blush, it is when there is a sale!

Eyeshadow

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 2.06.28 PM

This eyeshadow palette is the perfect neutral palette with a twist. The metallics are absolutely stunning, and for a neutral palette, you can get a surprising amount of looks out of it! As usual, the quality is impeccable. In my review I included 5 looks that I created with it, so check out that post if you want to see what this baby can do!

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow PaletteScreen Shot 2018-04-08 at 9.01.06 PM.png

After getting back into this palette in the last couple of weeks, I have come to realize what a great palette for spring this is! I featured this palette in week 8 of my Palette Roulette series, and if you checked that out, you will know that I basically had nothing bad to say about it! It is such a great palette that has surprisingly good shade diversity! If you have been craving a cool palette lately, this is the one!

Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 2.13.46 PM

One of the main reasons that I would recommend any of these mini Huda Obsessions palettes is because they have great value! They actually have better value that regular sized palettes, in terms of the amount of product you get for the price. If you want to read more about this, I use this palette in a comparison in my post on the Kat Von D MetalMatte Mini Palette. Besides that, I think Huda shadows are great and pretty easy to work with. I only own the Mauve Obsessions, but I am sure the other colour themes are great too!

Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow PotScreen Shot 2018-04-06 at 2.06.48 PM

This is not the first time I have raved about these Chrome Paint Pots. I own the shades Top Yacht, Park Ave Princess and Fire Dancer, and they are all amazing. They might be the most reflective, foiled and metallic shadows out there. To my surprise, it looks like they have come out with more shades!!! I will definitely be getting that pink one! As I keep saying, I will be reviewing these soon!

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.27.43 PM

While this is not an eyeshadow, I use this product almost every single time I do an eyeshadow look. This concealer has become an integral part of my routine. Metallic and shimmer shadows all perform so well when pressed onto a sticky base, and the whiter the base, the truer the colour! As far as I know, Kat Von D is the only brand that sells a white concealer like this, and I highly recommend it for your cut crease looks!

Lip Products

Urban Decay Vice LipstickScreen Shot 2018-04-06 at 2.08.15 PM

I really don’t need to say much, as I have raved over and over that the Vice Lipsticks are my favourite lipstick formula. They have over 100 shades available on Sephora, with 6 different finishes, so you are sure to find something that you will like! These are my HG lipsticks, which I think is made clear by the fact that I own 28 of them…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip GlossScreen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.21.42 PM

This lipgloss is also my HG. The shade Kristen is my favourite, and I wear it almost every day. What really emphasizes that is that I literally just finished a full tube of it and had to repurchase. HOWEVER, it seems that I have lost that new tube in the last week 😩, so I think I will have to buy it again. That’s how good it is! I also own like 10 shades of these, and you can see lip swatches here. They are so comfortable and wear down so well. If there is ever a time for lipgloss, it’s the Spring!

Tools

Sales are the perfect time to buy new tools! Brushes can be so expensive, but they are something that you really should invest in!

Sephora Collection PRO Featherweight Crease Brush #38

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.33.43 PM

I LOVE the brushes from the PRO Featherweight line. This crease brush is my first brush that I use whenever creating an eye look. It is a larger fluffy brush that is so soft and blends like a dream. You NEED this brush if you are lacking a larger blending brush in your collection!

Sephora Collection PRO Featherweight Complexion Brush #90

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.34.34 PM

This brush was actually the first that I bought from the Featherweight line. Again, this brush is just about as soft as it gets, and I love it for blush, although it can be used for any face powders! I highly recommend it! Just feel how soft it is in store! You can also check out my original review here.

Skin Care

Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.45.39 PM

This mask is a clay mask that has exfoliating jojoba beads in it. Even though this mask does dry down all the way, I have never found that it has broken me out. I love to use this on my cheeks, which is where I have the most texture on my face. I have been using this mask for a few years now, and I love it!

Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.40.41 PM

This is the new version of Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, which I had a long love affair with over the last year. It’s a bit on the expensive side, so I took a brief break, but I’m back to it since nothing compares! This new and improved version feels so nourishing when you apply it and it really hydrates my skin. I have oily/combo/dry skin, so it is hard to please all those different zones on my face. This moisturizer does it, and it lays beautifully beneath foundation! In fact, it works as a great primer for foundation. You can check out my original review here.

Fresh Rose Hydrating Eye Gel CreamScreen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.43.10 PM

While I am still on my forever search for the perfect eye cream, this one is really great! It is pretty hydrating and applies really nicely. The only bad thing is that I go through these jars so quickly, and stuff from Fresh is not cheap!

Perfume

Obviously, with how expensive perfume is, this sale is the perfect time to indulge! I will definitely be researching new perfumes that I want to try during this sale!

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.46.46 PM

Black Opium is by far my favourite scent right now. It is really beautiful for spring. The main notes are: Coffee Accord, Orange Blossom, Cedarwood Essence, Patchouli Essense. That’s right, there’s coffee in there! I do think that it could wear longer on the skin, but they sell a travel size which solves that problem!

Well, those are my recommendations for the Sephora Spring Sale! What are you planning on getting? Have you tried and loved any of these products? Comment down below!

  1. So many of these are in my cart right now! I have the soft glam, vice lipsticks, mauve obsessions, and that UD highlight palette in my cart. I doubt I’ll actually go crazy and buy it all but I can dream! Great recommendations 🙂

      1. You definitely need Backtalk! Tampered looks pretty, although from my experience with similar shades, be prepared for it to wear a bit darker than it looks based on your complexion. I think I have Rapture, which is similar, and I remember being surprised with it being a bit darker than expected, but I still love it!

      2. Have you tried the Tarte Color Splash lipsticks? The shade “Salt Lyfe” would be right up your alley. I’m wearing it in my makeup swap post! It’s maybe a titch more on the purple/grey side than backtalk.

  2. I love all of your picks! So many good things in here 🙂 The UD lipsticks are always a solid choice – although I can’t believe you own 28 lol!

    I totally forgot about the Tarte Chrome paint pots you’ve been raving about. I FINALLY swatched them in stores, and they are incredible!!

    1. Hehe I know. I’ve definitely slowed down my lipstick purchases not that I have such a stock pile. Those Chrome pots are great, I’ve been using them all week hoping to get a review up for you guys! And it’s exciting that there are new shades!
