Boniour, again! 🇫🇷🥐☕️There are only a little over 24 hours left for the Sephora savings event! This only happens twice a year so I ty to stock up on favorites and take advantage.I have not placed my order yet but plan to work on that last minute. I did grab a couple of things while here in Paris so I thought I’d quickly share that. I got THIS blush/highlighter palette, a re-stock of the PMG gloss [see lip product section] – seen below! It was out of stock in the shade Love Potion earlier this year so I was excited to find that.Also, THIS product for pre-shampoo mineral remover is AMAZING. It totally changed my hair and shocked me the aI needed it that badly! 👀 You will notice in the hair section that many of my holy grail items are by this brand – I have tried it all [nearly] and there are a few that are truly incredible! On that note, THIS is one of the best root lifter products that doesn’t make your hair feel crunchy! And a few other re-purchase items.  I figured sharing photos of my minis that I travel with would b good because those are things I swear by and don’t leave the house without! See my instagram stories to see more!

Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Primer || Okay, this was rough because typically there are not many primers on the market that truly blur out pores but I feel like this year has been the year of the blur! I am thrilled about that! So, my favorite out of the 4 is a tie between this one and the one below by Laura Mercier. This one I got in Miami in the spring when it was hot and we were shooting lots of outfits in a day and my makeup just stayed SO well. I feel like this one locks makeup down, magnifies, and blurs.

Laura Mercier Blurring Primer || Like I said, above, this is a tie for a favorite because this one blurs so well! It is smoothing a does well with dry skin. I use this one most often because its a cheaper one-ish – but does the blurring like a charm.

Caliray Blurring Primer || Also very good – and also hydrating which is a great combo. Many who want to blur are oily so the fact that they are out wit a hydrating formula is a big deal!


Hourglass Ambient Soft Glow Foundation || [Shade: 8] I will be honest, out of the foundation – I really don’t know my favorite so be warned! The last 12 months the Dior below is the one I have worn the most along with the HB stick [seen below]… However, as my skin has improved I’ve moved to lighter formulas. I will say that this foundation is beautiful – like    velvet on your skin and has a great coverage that can be built. If I had to pick a winner for EVERYONE to use it would be this or the Dior. The Dior one has more skincare in it though which helps improve your skin over time.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation || [Shade: 7] Just recently got to a point where I can use a lighter, less coverage foundation and this one has been on HOT rotation!! I feel like my skin looks better than ever with this one… however my skincare game has a really been ramped up the last year so I am sure that that factor plays a part. if you like    a light coverage that wears well and looks natural- this is a good one!

Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation Stick || [Shade: Latte 300N] This is Coco’s favorite – and one I use on tricky spots! I feel like it says a lot that it is cocos favorite though!

Danessa Myricks Cream Cover Foundation & Concealer || [Shade: N4.5] This is pure magic for anyone who has pigmentation, bruising, etc. A tiny pump of this will cover it ALL! I don’t use it often but if I want really perfect makeup I def do use a small bit to cover an old scar or a veiny spot!

Lancome TIU Care & Glow || [Shade: 355N] The is a hot one right now all over the place – social media anyway. Its a 24HR wear but it has skincare in it and a beautiful glow. I get compliments when I wear this one! I typically don’t prefer a glowy finish but I do really like    this once it is set with powder. It is gorgeous. [The shade here is when I am not self tanned at all and the other shades above are when I am tanned!]

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation || [Shade: ‘3.5N’] Okay, this foundation is like…. woahhhhhhh. You guys. I have pretty tricky skin & it has scars & pigment so I have to have some coverage. Well, this foundation is like an all in one. It is medium coverage but can be built up. It is lightweight & ‘glowy’ but dries down to a natural, flawless finish. Now, if you need full coverage – you may not love this but I will hav to say I recommend trying this out. Now, if you are OG for following me & love the NARS one above – use a drop of each and HOLY COW. Talk about insane!! But the Dior Glow on its own is gorgeous. There is an IGTV on my Instagram feed that is filter free in sunlight with me applying this and you’ll see how beautiful it applies & wears.

Nars Soft Matte Liquid Foundation || [Shade: ‘Barcelona’] I purchased this when it released last year and I can’t find anything that competes with it. It is matte but not dry or cakey. It covers incredibly well – just the smallest drop will go a long ways. It dries do beautifully & wears VERY long wear. I try new foundations regularly and I will have to say- not much can beat this if you want a full coverage, long wearing, matte finish!


Huda Beauty Luminous Matte Cream Concealer || [Shade: Coconut Flakes] I randomly decided to try this because you’ll notice in this post that I really love a few Huda products. Well, this was a big hit. I have never used any concealer more than my Dior [see below] but this comes close. It is just a really good formula & I love the shade for me. The Dior is a bit creamier and works well on all age skin but this one is amazing!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector || [Shade: ‘Medium’ or “Fair”] This is the magic trick for dark circles. The ingredients speak for themselves – they are made to smooth & blur out the under eye are and it works. I am on my second one of these. I probably go through one per year. The medium ‘salmon’ color counteracts the dark circles – correcting them. If you use concealer on dark circles, you can make the under eye area a grey color . If you use this before concealer – you totally bright the area.

Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer ||  [Shade: ‘1N’] I think I’ve beat this one into the ground with home much I talk about it. Again, there’s an IGTV on applying it and MANY blog posts. This concealer is a MUST. Absolute MUST. Any age. Any skin type. Its incredible. It is not drying, cakey, etc. Covers fully and is long wearing. [Pasted this from last years blog post but this still rings true… one of the best concealers ever!]

Bare Minerals Broad Spectrum Concealer ||  [Shade: ‘Summer Bisque’] Another hot item that I talk about way too much but this is so incredible for no makeup looks or just to set or brighten you under eye area! This is one of my holy grail products. I use this at the end of my routine to more ore less – set and brighten my under eye area. I have bad allergies so sometimes as I get ready my eyes water… this is my sure fire way to really lock it down. Also, on days where I am just using a tinted moisturizer or serum foundation – I use no liquid concealer and just this!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Magic Touch Concealer || [Shade: ‘4’] Okay, so this is something I’ve blogged about a few times over the last year. This concealer is a very pigmented, extremely high coverage concealer. Need to cover a dark spot, blemish, bruise, etc??? This is your guy. If you have the time – let it dry down for a minute or so and it totally covers the spot! I do not use this under my eyes because I find


Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder || [Shade: ‘Satin Blanc’] I am on my second ‘tub’ of this powder – it is high end but it does outperform the others. Not to mention, it smells INCREDIBLE. It is an all time favorite of mine. I just recently purchased my 4th ‘jar’?? lol of it – it is so good. If you are the least bit concerned about pores, smoothness, etc. – I highly recommend this! I will say, this has an amazing scent. It is not anything crazy – just smells… classy. Expensive. But not strong – mentioning this because many try to avoid fragrance as it can clog pores. This does not clog my pores. I get several setting powders in PR every quarter and I try them all and always come back to this!


LYS Cream Bronzer & Contour Stick || [Shade: Courage] This is one of the best contour sticks ever – sooo smooth and buttery. Extremely pigmented but blends out like  a dream! See my IG stories Sephora Highlight tab to see it in use. I blend it out with THIS brush – same one I use for the contour product below!

By Mario Soft Sculpt Shaping Stick || [Shade: ‘Medium Dark’] This became my holy grail cream contour back in the fall and I can’t go back! I use one of his brushes to blend it out on my cheeks, jaw, nose, & forehead. I actually really like this for an intense contour.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette || [Shade: Volume 3] If you remember, my sister showed up to our family trip to Disney last March and totally forgot her makeup bag. We girls ran to Sephora and I got to pick out her makeup… ahhh so fun! I got her my staple products – Dior concealer, etc. This had just dropped and was sold out everywhere and there was one in stock….. but it was too dark for her! So we ended up just switching bronzers and I adore this one… so I recommend if you are medium toned. I have a hard time finding a bronzer that matches me & this one is amazing. It has 3 shades and I more or less just mix into the first two shades. That third one has a little too much shimmer in it for me! If you have super smooth skin you may enjoy the third but glimmer usually enhances my texture so I try to avoid it. I use THIS brush to apply it.


rms beauty Redemension Hydra Powder Blush || [Shade: French Rose] So. INSANE!! 🌟🌟🌟 Out of all of the products I mention – this gets a big shoutout bc I get DMS any time I have this blush on asking what it is… People can tell via Instagram Stories which is crazy. It is really a striking blush with a great formula.

LYS Cream Satin Blush || [Shade: Humble] I really like    the LYS brand – everything is high quality with a really clean formula. This blush is one of the best cream blushes I have tried over the last two years. The shade is amazing and it wears well and has ingredients to smooth your skin!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush || [Shade: ‘Radiant Magenta’] An old school holy grail blush that has remained a favorite for many years

Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand High Blush || [Shade: ‘Pinkgasm’] I just got this in PR a few months ago and wow. I love I just dot on with the applicator tool and then blend it out by stamping with my dampened beauty sponge! I do use a separate powder blush on top of it to set it more or less but it leaves the most beautiful sheen / glow! This does tend to sell out crazy fast so be warned!


Benefit the POREfessional Super Setter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray  || This is still here from last years post! It will lock your makeup down WHILE blurring out pores.


Huda Beauty Empowered Eye Shadow Palette || This is my go-to all in one palette – I don’t need any of the top coats [seen below👀] w/this bc the shimmers are so good and it has all of my transition shades too!🌟🌟

Makeup by Mario Master Crystal Reflector || [Shade: ‘Bronzite’] My old school favorite top coat was discontinued so I started using this and spraying with Fix+ and it gives that same beautiful shimmer on the lid!

NATASHA DENONA Chroma Crystal Top Coat || [Shade: ‘Bronze’] My old holy grail is BACK! 🚨

Stay Lit Liquid Eyeshadows || {shade ‘Champagne Showers’} ^^ Read above! If you are new – my old Sephora posts and makeup routines cover my glitery eye shadow tutorial but they discontinued the liquid golden pigment so I switched to this & prefer it. It is gorgeous alone.

Lawless Mascara The One & Done Volumizing Mascara || A newer favorite and one that I’ve grown to be obsessed with – you can open it brand new and its like magic – immediately just coats your lashes.

Ilia Fullest Volumizing Mascara || Ummm, I love love this mascara. Really good for volume & thickness!

Makeup Forever Aqua Resist Color Pencil Eyeliner || {shade ‘Graphite’} One of my favorite waterline eyeliners, ever honestly. So smooth & pigmented. It also stays but for longer!🌟🌟

RARE BEAUTY Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner || Hands down one of the BEST liners ever. Literally still on after washing my face while others would come right off with my cleansing balm! It is matte and wears better than any of my other holy grail liquid liners! [This is what I do on upper lid for a winged liner!]🌟🌟

Too Faced Fluff & Hold Laminating Brow Wax ||

Benefit Eyebrow Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer || Out of all of the brow products I test out each week, this is one I have repurchased. It just works so well for me.

Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel with Lamination Effect


Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick ||  [shade: ‘K. K.W.’] I think I talk about this wayyyyy too much! But it is the best nude shade, formula, etc.🌟🌟

Lawless Forget The Filler || [Shade: Rosy Outlook] If you want a gloss that will truly plump up your lips – you have to try this! I actually didn’t use it a lot for a while because  it made them look a little too full. However, just recently  I hopped on the ‘dissolve your filler’ trend – kinda… and this is my holy grail gloss. If you are curious about the dissolving – I didn’t dissolve it all! Mostly just upper part of the top lip where I let someone else take over and it migrated up.👀😅

Pat McGrath LUST Lipgloss || [Shade faves: Love Potion & Peach Perversion] Over the last 5 years, this gloss has been in many stories and blog posts because it is just that good. My fave shade is Love Potion but I ran totally out of it and it was sold out at the time so I got Peach Perversion and it works too! Its just a very high end gloss with a shimmer that gives a major juicy lip look!

ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Lip Liner || [Shade: ‘Deep Taupe’] HOLY COW…OBSESSED! This is a great collection of contouring lip liners – easy to use and more old school because you have to sharpen but still creamy and just user friendly! I loveeeeee this and I think it is my new holy grail.

Huda Beauty Lip Contour Liner || {shades: ‘Warm Brown’, ‘Sandy Beige’ and ‘Terracotta’} 🌟🌟🚨🚨🌟Just a heads up these were out of stock for months and they are finally all restocked

Laneige Lip Treatment Balm || SSOOOOO GOOD. Looks good on its on but the results are so great. Wear overnight for hydrated lips or just all day for really beautiful glow & soft lips.

Tarte Juicy Maracuja Lip || IYKYK..Shade: Rose…


CT Magic Night Cream || Mentioned in like 100 other blog posts – these is a one of the few products in my skincare routine that is not medical/pharmaceutical grade. However, my mom, sister, & me go through these little tubs like crazy. We all swear by it. It is a little sticky but if you have dry skin or dull skin – you will wake up and know what we all love it so much. [🚨I keep a travel size of this in my travel bag simply because I don’t want to ever risk forgetting it!]

Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub || I’ve including this in numerous blog posts and I have yet to find anything that can compete with it. It is SO satisfying and the scrub is the perfect texture. [🚨I keep a travel size of this in my travel bag simply because I don’t want to ever risk forgetting it!]


Sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel || OG favorite for me – but the smell is amazing. I use this in shower to shave my legs, too! I also travel with the travel size bottle of this.

Fenty Skin Butta Drop Whipped Oil Hydrating Body Cream || THE BEST STUFF EVER. This stuff saves my legs year round – esp. fall & winter. [🚨I keep a travel size of this in my travel bag simply because I don’t want to ever risk forgetting it!]

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant

Isle of Paradise Self Tanner Eraser || A must for me! Spray on and let set for 5 minutes and then shower and scrub and it helps loosen up your self tanner / dead skin!

Nécessaire Body Wash & Charcoal Body Exfoliator || Hands down one of the best scrubs ever – but love the body wash too!

Fenty Body Sauce || [Shade: ‘Agave Spice’] SO FREAKING AMAZING! I use this on repeat all spring and summer and even fall and winter. As seen on my stories in Miami, Orlando, Dallas – basically any trip I go on!  Seriously amazing for covering any thing you need to cover or get a tan!!! Its incredible! I use it to hide cellulite & boost my tan.

Fenty Body Lava Body Luminizer


T3 Micro Curling Iron || 1″- I have been using this for years now – probably 6 years. Easily one of the best hot tools and curling irons ever! I have blogged about these sooooo many time so I won’t waste your time but you can search and you’ll see lots of tutorials and posts. Also there are videos on my Instagram! I also have used the 1.25″ barrel, so if you want a slightly larger one you can’t go wrong with that one either.

Dry Bar Wrap Party Styling Wand

L’Oreal Professionel Steam Pod Styler [Straightener/Wave]  || Both this and the one by GHD below are amazing tools! This one uses steam – there’s a full review HERE & video tutorial on my Instagram IGTV tab.

GHD Max Styler || I also use the 1″ & travel size too – all are very good straighteners. See my IG or Tiktok for a quick video. If I had to pick one of the GHD – I would probably just do the 1″.

Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler

Moroccan Oil Glimmer Shine Mist || SO good! Instantly makes your hair super shiny! I am posting a video soon all about how I curl my hair with THIS new curling iron by t3Micro and you see me use this for the first time – you will see how shiny it is!

Dry Bar Teasing Comb & Brush || I have 3 of these bc they are that good! I use on Soapie too for her space buns each day.

IGK First Class Detoxifying Charcoal Shampoo || Helps remove all of the stuff like hairspray, shine spray, dry shampoo, texture spray, etc that you accumulate in between washes. It removes it and your hair will be SO much softer and cleaner.

Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo & Conditioner ||

Color Wow Products ||🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The CW Dream Coat, Hydrating Cocktail, & the Root Cover Up Powder are a few products that I constantly repurchase & swear by – I always have people telling me they are so happy to have discovered those three items. The Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray Anti-Frizz Treatment sold out last year but this is one of the best hair products – ever! My mom and I swear by it. Douse your hair in this while wet after a shower and blow dry and you will have shiny, frizz free hair for weeks. I think it lasts for 8 washes? But I do it anytime I notice my hair is not as smooth & shiny! Also, I love their cocktails for using when in between washes when I am not using the Dream Coat. They are hydrating [or choose the thickening treatment or the strengthening treatment] and really work. This is the same brand that makes the powder you use to fill in hair line and cover grays.  I show this on my stories a lot and always get a million questions! [🚨I keep a travel size of the Dream Coat in my travel bag simply because I don’t want to ever risk forgetting it!]

Moroccan Oil Intense Moisturizing Mask

IGK First Class Dry Shampoo || This is one of the first products mentioned in a Sephora haul and you all bought it out. It is easily the best dry shampoo out there – easily. I have shared this on my blog in my Sephora Sale blog posts for 5 years straight now! [🚨I keep a travel size of this in my travel bag simply because I don’t want to ever risk forgetting it!]

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Heat Styling Spray || I loveeeeeeee this stuff so much! Like, can not rave about it enough. I have mentioned it a lot on my stories the past 8 weeks or so but its worth it! Helps keep

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray || Old school favorite, the smell, the formula, however – I re-purchase because I use it on Sophia’s buns and my roots for extra oomph! [🚨I keep a travel size of this in my travel bag simply because I don’t want to ever risk forgetting it!]

Hourglass Veil Powder Brush
