HUGE Makeup + Skincare Sale

There are a few places that are very dangerous for me that I try to avoid at all costs: Target, Homegoods, and Sephora

They're places that you walk into for one thing, but you end up coming out $100+ later. Every. Single. Time. Is it just me? I hope not. 

Anyway, Sephora is having a big sale for VIB members. You get 15% off the Spring Bonus products and Beauty Insider Members get 10% off. It runs through the 23rd. 

I'm personally a VIB member. Here's my tip! My mom, sister, and I all share the Sephora card (it's just a points card!) so even if we don't spend too much ourselves, all three of us together are sure to still secure our status each year. 

I know 15% off may not sound like much, but it's awesome because a lot of these products never go on sale. I thought I'd share the items I'm ordering from the sale as well as some of my favorites that I would recommend getting! You can read the most recent post on my makeup routine, here. 

Shop Products Mentioned:
Favorites
Lip Glow// You guys know how obsessed I am with this lip balm. I have so many and have one on me at all times. My two favorites are the pink and the berry. They are moisturizing and just give your lips enough color to look naturally flush and healthy. They have come out with a matte berry shade and I am intrigued. I like the somewhat creamy texture of the satin finish balms but the matte could be good in the right settings. It's expensive for lip balm, but it's definitely one I'm willing to spend on because I love it that much. 

Mediterranean Honeysuckle// This is one of my favorite summer scents. It's light and fresh and just makes me very happy. Not to mention, the bottle is gorgeous and I swear I am complimented every time I wear it. I'm interested in the newest scent because it has hints of sandalwood which is one of my favorites. 

Bum Bum Cream// I just love Sol De Janiero in general. Their products make me think of summer and have a warm tropical scent to them. The bum bum cream is aptly named because it's meant for your behind. It has guarana in it (caffeine) so it's supposed to help improve skin elasticity. I'm not sure if I'm just drinking the Kool-Aid, but I love the way my skin looks after using it. I use it on my legs, too! I feel like it just makes my skin look so much healthier. It's expensive and I would not normally spend this much on a cream- but I really love it enough to pay the price. The only thing is that I wish it came in a pump bottle rather than a tub. I just like that type of dispensing format better in general. 

SPF 30 Tinted Moisturizer// I don't typically wear a lot of makeup when I'm out in the sun by the beach/lake/pool. I am usually only wearing this super flattering tinted moisturizer and lip balm! It's hydrating and has anti-aging properties which is what sold me over any other SPF moisturizer. It's also really creamy and easy to apply with a good amount of coverage that just evens out my skin and gives me a healthy glow. 
T3 Hairdryer// this is the hairdryer I use every single time I wash my hair. It is super lightweight and gets the job done very quickly. It is supposed to be less damaging to your hair and I really do believe that! 

Crushed Lip Color// This is a matte lip color that is pretty pigmented but very easy to apply without a mirror. It doesn't feel dry but rather hydrating, yet it still stays very matte in appearance. I love the shade 'Babe' and wear it weekly. It's a great daytime and nighttime color! 

No More Baggage// This eye cream goes on and visibly reduces puffiness. I LOVE this stuff. It totally works. I pat it under my eyes in the morning before I apply my makeup. It feels cool and refreshing and I always notice brighter looking eyes! 

The Ordinary Products// I just bought a few a few weeks ago. They're SO inexpensive and I've been loving everything I have tried so far. I recommend the buffet, 30% vitamin C, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid toner

Eyebrow Powder// This is the holy-grail of eyebrow powder! I am obsessed. I use the light half for my eyebrows and then the darker color for liner! I'm not a makeup artist and powder always seemed intimidating to me but this is sooooo easy to apply and gives you a very natural look. 
Cleansing Cloths// These are SO good. They're one of my all-time favorite products. I don't use them for removing makeup but just for refreshing my face. I typically use one in the morning or at night and then always immediately after a flight. They have this little pack that is perfect for traveling. 

Exfolikate// This is a grainy exfoliator and the sample size is even pretty $$$ but I tried my friend's and promptly ordered my own. It's SO good at exfoliating and instantly makes your face feel refreshed and cleared of any gross dead skin patches. 

Naked Skin Concealer// I use this as my #1 go-to concealer for under my eyes and concealing blemishes. It's very opaque and can be layered without being cakey. It's fool-proof to apply and just overall an amazing full-coverage concealer that is lightweight! 

Ultra HD Foundation// This is the holy grail of foundation. It's so lightweight and easy to blend but has a great full coverage look. It's creamy and I just use my hands to rub it on my face- almost like a moisturizer. It's pretty matte but also feels very hydrating and glowy. 

In My Cart
Sukari Baby Facial// I've seen so many rave reviews on this product. I am such a skincare junkie so I'm always dying to try the newest, best products. This product is a AHA/BHA mask... there is a whopping 25% AHA in the product! For those that don't know, AHA is alpha hydroxy acid and BHA is beta hydroxy acid. Both acids help to slough away dead skin and exfoliate, leaving a brighter complexion. 

Summer Fridays Mask// Very interested to try this hydrating mask because it is getting rave reviews. 

SPF 30 Lip Balm// I always wear sunscreen on my lips-, especially during the summer months. My lips get so dry and this product is water resistant. http://bit.ly/2JWqVsTThis set is a good deal because for $10 more, you get 2 Fresh Sugar lip balms! 

High Potency Night-a-Mins// I had a sample of this that I used when I was traveling but ran out. It's SO thick and creamy. I love slathering it on at night and I wake up with my skin totally hydrated. It's such a nice cream, I could not recommend it more. 

Drunk Elephant Skincare Set// I love Drunk Elephant products and I'm always needing travel size products because I don't typically travel with full-size products. These will be perfect and I'm excited to try new ones! 

Lip Mask// I've seen this on Instagram a lot lately and I'm wondering if it works better than just typical lip balm.

Hydrating Gift Set// I love when Sephora does gift sets with all different brands. This one has so many products I'd love to try all in one package! It's such a good deal even without the discount!
