Prestige beauty products almost never go on sale, so I wait for this sale every year and STOCK UP on my favorite designer makeup.
I thought no better time to round up my holy grail prestige products in case y’all are looking to try something new. Heck, now’s the time! And while I can’t live without my OGs, I wanted to also share what products are in my cart to test drive.
WHAT’S IN MY CART:
Becca Backlight Priming Filter: This primer is AMAZING! It has a light shimmer finish to it so when layered under foundation lets your skin glow from within.
NARS Radiant Longwear Foundation: I have heard so many mixed reviews on this foundation but I can’t imagine anyone not loving it because I am OBSESSED. I haven’t touched another foundation since trying this. It’s semi to full coverage without looking heavy and just blends into your own skin like butter. Plus, there are a ton of shades so you’re likely to find the perfect one to match your skin tone.
Anastasia Beverly Hill Blush Kit: These blush kits are only available for a limited time, are so pigmented so they last forever, and come in such wearable colors for every skin tone.
Marc Jacobs Air Blush: The Sephora sale is the perfect time to spring for a pricier designer beauty products like Marc Jacob’s blush and lip glosses. If you’re looking for the perfect peach color for Spring, Kink & Kisses is it!
Benefit Hoola Bronzer: This bronzer is a cult favorite for a reason. It’s a natural-looking matte bronze color that isn’t too orange or ruddy.
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder: This powder diffuses your skin without looking chalky or causing flashback. I use it to set my undereyes after using Tarte’s Shape Tape (not available at Sephora) and the combo never settles into fine lines and really diffuses this sensitive area of my skin.
Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Lip Paint in Exposed: Hellooo everyday long wearing lip color. I would describe it as your lips, but better. The formula goes on so smooth, dries instantly, and lasts all day. It is seriously a must have!
Urban Decay Hi-Fi Lip Shine in Fuel & Midnight Cowboy: These lip glosses are brand new and total perfection! They smell like peppermint, come in a ton of colors, and aren’t sticky. My favorite nudes are Fuel & Midnight Cowboy for a little shimmer.
Tarte Tarteist Lip Crayon in Boho: If you love to overline your lips, this is the liner for you. The Boho shade is so natural, it will blend into your lip line and layer perfectly with matte lip colors or glosses.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lip Color in Beso: The PERFECT red – not too blue & not too orange. It does what the name says and stays on all day and is simply stunning! Unfortunately, none of the other colors worked for my hair and skin tone, but Beso is a must have.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion: How did I live without this?! Seriously, did I just let my eye shadow melt off my face? This stuff is a game changer. I put it all over my lid and then set it with Laura Mercier’s translucent powder before doing my eye makeup and it really extends the life of eye shadow and keeps it perfectly in place.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz: I won’t leave the house without this. Thicker eyebrows give a youthful appearance and since I turn 30 today, I am allll about that! I love that the small, precise pencil makes it simple to draw in hairs and the spoolie on the other end blends it all together naturally.
Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Palette: I hate traveling with huge eye shadow palettes, but it is so difficult to find a small compact with a full eye look. That is, until I found the Petite Heat Palette! If you love a warm, smokey look, you need this.
