✨MARCH SEPHORA FAVORITES✨
DIOR Backstage Concealer || [Shade:’1N’] You guys know I have been obsessed with the other Dior concealer for quite some time – it is hands down one of the best concealers for the under eye area – ever! This one just came out in the last week or two?! It is a medium coverage, *caffeine infused*, hydrating, long-wearing concealer – that has a radiant finish. It is beautiful!! The brush is very unique – it is more similar to a paint brush. It is waterproof & creaseproof much like the other one that I love but this one has caffeine in it for dark circles & puffy under eyes. I
DIOR Forever Matte Foundation || [Shade:’3,5N’] Similar to the above statement, the Dior Forever Skinglow has been a long time favorite but I recently got the new Matte version for the warmer weather days! I think I prefer the glow one but I will say that if you are oily the matte formula is GOOOOD. Both stay put 24HRs, have skincare ingredients within them, & just look so so beautiful. My skin tends to be more dry so I think I prefer the glow but both are amazing and have great coverage that is buildable. I think Dior has been killing it lately in terms of a beautiful base that looks natural and radiant all while staying put!
MAKEUP BY MARIO Master Hold Brow Gel || I am a huge fan of laminated brows and have been laminating mine for over 2 years now. The downside is that my brows grow quickly and I don’t have a schedule that allows me to get them done often so I swear by a really powerful brow glue that keeps them from pointing downward. This one is amazing for brushing your brows up and locking them in place. There are only a handful that actually work well on my crazy brows.
NATASHA DENONA Chroma Crystal Top Coat || [Shade: ‘Bronze’] It’s back!! Ahh! 🚨
LAURA MERCIER Lip Glacé || [Shade: ‘Rosé’ & ‘Vanille’] OKAY! This is newer to me – something I got in PR recently and immediately loveeedd! And then realized I had already purchased it on my own. The shade ‘Rose’ is my favorite. This is a 3-in-1 – lip gloss, lip balm, treatment that works to hydrate your lips – super moisturizing while also just looking so shiny and beautiful. The color stays put and wears really well. If you like a good nude lip – you will love the shade Rose. I use this with my lip combo daily. It is pigmented enough that it enhances a nude lip beautifully and also stays put which is so nice! My go to combo lately is ‘Deep Taupe‘ liner with my go-to ‘Kim K.W.’ & ‘Rose‘ on top!
IT COSMETICS CC+ Nude Glow Lightweight Foundation || [Shade: ‘Natural Medium’] omg! This is new to me but I fell in love quickly. It is their new Glowy Skin tint that has SPF. It is medium coverage and just brightens your face up instantly. If you like a lighter coverage look with SPF – you will love this. This is not going to be a full glam vibe but it will be great for those of you who like just a bit of coverage and glow with SPF built in!
PATRICK TA Major Sculpt Contour Brush || I have seen this recommended so many times and can never find it in stock until last week in Orlando. If you are big on contouring your cheekbones / jaw area – you will love this brush!! It is dense/firm and works super easy for contour in case you are looking for something to make contouring a little easier.
HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Palette || [Shade: ‘Volume III’] Ahhh! So Hourglass just released this not too long ago and like the above^ contour brush, I could never find it in stock until we were in Orlando last week. I have a couple of these palettes and I loveee them but this one has the new bronzer shades that are better for darker skin. I struggle to find bronzers that are dark enough to match my self tanner but this one is really good- especially for summer. It has a bit of a radiance to it – nothing crazy or shiny but just enough to give you a summer glow!
OLE HENRIKSON Strength Trainer Peptide Boost Moisturizer || I ran out of moisturizer about a month ago and got this one after hearing amazing reviews and it is safe to say that I am hooked. It is a thick consistency – not too thick – but just enough that your skin like drinks it up! My skin immediately feels refreshed and plump upon putting this on. it is full of peptides, collagen, amino acids – and they all work together to ‘double hydrate’ your skin. It also has hyaluronic within it as well.
TARTE Sea Power Flex Concealer || [Shade: 25N] Okay, you guys know I never fell in love with the original Shape Tape but BOY! This is Tarte’s newest concealer & it is VERY GOOD. I mean – GOOD. The ingredients make it even better since it has hyaluronic acid & niacinamide – which help with hydration & brightening while you wear them. This is a full coverage concealer and it is also long wearing. It does have more of a matte finish- which makes it a bit different than other concealers I love really. If you pull more oily – you may really love this one. It is not drying at all despite it being a matte finish – it doesn’t look cakey or crepey in the least. I apply it with the doe foot applicator which is large making it nice for covering large areas that may be pigmented and then I used their new Concealer Brush [triangle shaped] to blend it in [Tik Tok hack] and liked it. I typically use a dampened beauty sponge to apply concealer but I saw a Tiktok on how certain brushes actually allow the concealer to get better coverage / blend more flawlessly. I did a few Instagram stories showing it up close and you could totally see how well it worked. I really like this brush in general for stamping anything including powder in under the eye… AND I used it in Orlando to easily apply SPF on Luke and Sophia’s faces. It makes it easier to spot treat their faces and avoid their eye area – which John doesn’t do as well, LOL!
LIVING PROOF Perfect Hair Day Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo || I don’t use dry shampoo often bc most of them make my hair feel gross but this is probably #2 in the best dry shampoos I have ever used! It is amazing – and doesn’t make your hair for sticky or gross.
LYS BEAUTY Triple Fix Brightening Concealer || [Shade: ‘LN3’] Yes, another concealer 🙈but this is a full coverage, brightening concealer and I love it. The ingredients are powerful and help to smooth out brighten your under eye area while you wear it.
KERASTASE Chroma Absolu High Shine Gloss Treatment for Color-Treated Hair | This is new to me but you use this on your hair in the shower and let it set for 1-2 minutes and it is a salon glossing treatment for color treated hair. I overnighted this last week while in Orlando and used it as soon as I got home! It makes your hair feel super silky & smooth immediately after rinsing it out & it has lactic acid in it which is a favorite ingredient of mine actually – for skincare. Lactic acid is a hydrating one and it works on your hair to strength & seal the hair surface making it shiny. I actually really wanted it for the color preserving because I go see Chrissy for color every 4 months or so, so its really important to me that I’m careful with what I use on my hair so that I don’t lose the color.
MAKEUP BY MARIO F2 Makeup Brush | I have a couple of his brushes and this one is a newer one that I love bc both ends are so useful – one for under eye are and one for the full face. I use this for sweeping away translucent powder after baking and to clean up my face when I have eye shadow fall out!
DIOR Backstage Eye Reviver Patches | OMG – these are CUTE! And, okay, also functional but soooo cute. [They look like the navy Dior Oblique Book tote!] It has their potent eye serum in it which I love & its great for a boost of hydration / waking up your under eye area – but I don’t use too often bc of the price but they are a cute splurge.
FENTY SKIN Pre-Show Glow || You guys know I have a handful of Fenty products that I do not travel without and this is one of them. If you need a good exfoliation both chemically and physically – you will love this. It is not harsh / won’t burn but the applicator itself will immediately make your skin so so so smooth.
FENTY Icon Semi-Matte Refillable Lipstick | I wore this all week long at Disney in the shade ‘Mutha – Love’ and I loved it. The perfect pinky nude – I also love the packaging.
T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers || One of my favorite sets of rollers and believe me – I have tried them all it feels like … they work best when your hair is fresh blow dried and they give volume at your root + curl. It is one of my favorite hair styles lately honestly.
