Sephora VIB Spring Sale Recs

Ahh the greatest time of the year has come again (well one of them at least). Its time for the annual Sephora Spring VIB Sale. So from April 20th to the 23rd you get to shop all of your favorite products for 10% (beauty Insiders) to 15% (VIB & Rouge Members) off your favorite products. I don’t know about you guys but I have been planning my list for the last month…. So I wanted to share some of my favorite products that I think are good investments to make during the sale!

20180322-IMG_8195

NARS Wanted Palette $59 – Of course I had to include this palette, its honestly the only one I’ve been using since my birthday in January. The mattes are super creamy and pigmented but are still easy to use and blend. But the shimmer shades are what stand out to me in this product. Previous to buying this I had my eye set on the Tom Ford palettes (that in my opinion are way to expensive for what they are) because I kept hearing how amazing the glitter / shimmer shades were. During my birthday shopping trip I actually got to swatch them in store for the first time and honestly they couldn’t even compare to the NARS shimmer shadows in this palette. They are pigmented and creamy with out causing any fall out. They are super intense and don’t even need fix plus for added intensity (I will say they work best when applied with your finger so keep that in mind). I honestly don’t think I need to buy another eyeshadow palette for a very long time….

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye $37 – I don’t mention this to much on our channel any more but this eye cream has literally changed my life. It is the only product that has ever made a different in my dark circles and keeps my under eye extremely hydrated. I find that I need less and less concealer under my eyes because of this and the Kora Organics Noni Radiant Eye Oil $38 that I use during the day. These are both my holy grail eye products and I most likely will never need any thing else. I would highly recommend both but if you were to pick only one it would definitely be the KIehl’s It was my first love.

Lancome Skin Feels Good $35 – I have just come to the conclusion that I cant use heavy bases on my skin. They just don’t sit well and tend to irritate my skin. So recently I have really been exploring light weight bases and on of my favorites is this Lancome one. Its pretty new and has a decent shade range (not the biggest but they do have a decent variety of undertones). It sits really nicely on the skin, it looks glowy and fresh but doesn’t make my skin oily through out the day. While it is super light weight it does an amazing job at concealing my redness and evening out my skin tone. I recently did a wear test over on our Youtube Channel if you want to check it out!

NARS Natural Radiant Long-wear Foundation $49 – Do you think I’m obsessed with NARS or what? Like I mentioned in the last paragraph my skin has been really irritated by heavy base products for what ever reason. But sometimes your girl need some coverage…I found this is the only medium to full coverage foundation that doesn’t clog my pores and irritate the skin. They have an amazing shade range and the product is super light weight while still providing enough coverage to last through out the day. NARS just really knows how to make god base products.

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer $24 – My all time favorite cream bronzer. It blends beautifully on the skin and adds this amazing natural sun kissed look. Also bravo to Milk for having two shades and realizing that people have different skin tones. I used to find cream bronzer to all be the same shade of orange but this was the first product (that I found at least) that had not one but two natural looking bronze shades to help achieve that I just spent 6 hours in the sun look (seriously can it just be summer already)

Marc Jacobs Dew Drops $44 – Probably the most expensive highlighting product I own and my most used. I love how versatile just this one thing is. I can use it alone as a base product (for intense glow skin) or I can mix it in with my primer for a subtle glow. I also just like to use it as a highlighter here and there when I am going for super natural glow to the skin. Seriously there are so many things you can do with this product which is why I highly recommend it!

Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Météore $33 – Another one of my all time eye products. This is  one of the best cream eyeshadows I have in my collection and probably my most used. It looks good alone all over the lid for subtle color and lots of shine and it works great as a topper for any look. I heard a rumor this was being discontinued so I highly recommend picking up during this sale! Also its pretty price so 10%-15% off doesn’t hurt.

Buxom Lip Power Plump Lip Balm $17 – This has been my go to lip product for about a month now. I have the shade Big O and it adds such a nice wash of pick color to the lips. It reminds me a lot fo he Dior lip glows (which I also love) but for a fraction of the price.

Let me know which products you guys are thinking about picking up or already have!
