I love so many products sold within Sephora, and that can get super overwhelming when making suggestions. To keep things less overwhelming, I’ve come up with a “Top 10 List” of items I would try out if you’re looking to try something new. These products are holy grail items for me that I 10000% love!
Top 10 Holy Grail Makeup Items from Sephora
Glowscreen is a staple product for me! It’s truly a unique product I absolutely love, especially in summer. It’s got an illuminating finish that somehow smooths and perfects the skin. I wouldn’t say this gives coverage, but it’s like an Instagram filter in a bottle! I wear this under makeup or by itself. Great way to be consistent with your SPF!
HOurglass Unlocked Mascara
Hourglass Unlocked Mascara is truly an amazing high end mascara you will not be sad you bought! It gives volume, length, does not smudge. It is a tubing mascara, which means it creates little tubes around the lashes, doesn’t flake, and removes easily only with water. I know it can be painful to spend this much on a mascara, but I promise you won’t regret this one. I also had to share this set! If you wanted to try the Unlocked Mascara but also try the Caution, grab this Hourglass mascara duo for $46!
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Foundation
If I were to recommend only one foundation that will work well for lots of skin types, it’s this one. I have been absolutely loving it, and it quickly rose to one of my favorite foundations I’ve ever tried. It’s a lightweight liquidy consistency (this consistency makes it hard to get cakey) with a medium buildable coverage. You can wear it sheered out or build it up. It’s a beautiful natural finish, and it lasts on the skin amazing! I wear shade Light Neutral 21.5
Too Faced Born This Way Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
I realize that there’s a million and a half eyeshadow palettes to choose from. This is one I find very special and will be perfect for beginners to advanced makeup users. It’s got something for everyone, is full of beautiful rosy neutrals, and will never feel boring to use.
Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder
This sheer perfecting powder is very unique and something I will never not have in my collection. It is a pressed powder that has a luminous glowy finish, but is not blinding like a highlighter. How I like to use this is over my foundation and powder. If I feel like my complexion is looking too flat and matte, I dust this all over to bring it to life. It makes the skin look glowy and healthy without
Milk Makeup Matte Cream Bronzer
I have totally been into cream bronzers lately. They are an easy way to give life and a little dimension to the skin. The Milk one has been a go-to of mine! It’s got a gorgeous formula. I recommend buying the mini size, as it has lasted forever! If you want to try the Milk cream bronzer but also want to try a few other Milk products, grab this gift set for $35! It has 4 of their best selling products!
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick
I think that a Caviar Stick is a staple in my collection. I don’t usually love a cream shadow but I truly love these. You cannot go wrong with any of them. The metallic shades are so incredibly foiled and blinding. Super easy to swipe on, blend out and go. Grabbing a full size one is always a good idea, but there’s a gift set out right now that has 3 mini ones for $29! I’d totally recommend that!
BareMinerals Mineralist Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick
This lipstick formula is my ultimate favorite for a traditional lipstick. Incredibly hydrating and pigmented. The shade Focus is a perfect neutral for me. (I alseo love the shade Insight but it’s not available.) Throw it on and it looks great with everything.
