Make room on your vanity because Sephora’s Beauty Insider Sale is back and the deals are so freaking good!
Like everyone else without an unlimited amount of disposable income, I try my hardest to get the best deals and save money—which is why I’m so strategic with cosmetics sales. While Sephora has its Beauty Insider Sale a few times a year, this one is the best value because the holidays kits offer the best bang for your buck plus you save an additional 10-20 percent off depending on what tier you’re in.
I don’t play when it comes to Sephora sales. I’ve done the legwork and I want to pass my knowledge along to you. And when I say legwork, I mean I’ve been to multiple Sephora’s across the state (I wish I was kidding lol), turned off Netflix and put my phone on airplane mode to scour the website and check out the best deals and the products I truly believe you’ll be happy spending your hard-earned money on. You’re welcome!
Here they are:
The ultimate “your lips but better” color for a large swath of the population, this lip set features Charlotte’s iconic, bestselling Matte Revolution Lipstick and mini Lip Cheat Pencil for a dreamy nude-pink, kissable pout.
Olaplex is the best of the best. I stock up on Olaplex products whenever Sephora has a sale and this cute little set, is an incredible offer. You get the complete four-piece Olaplex hair repair system (in-shower treatment, shampoo and conditioner and No. 6 bond repair treatment) for $58, a value of $84. I use all of these products on a regular basis and cannot recommend them enough. I bleach my hair a few times a year, and blow dry and style every single day (I know, I know, that’s not good) and my hair is incredibly healthy thanks to these products.
I know, I know. The price tag is insane, but it’s a Dyson and it comes with a stand. These do not go on sale. Sephora is the only retailer that includes Dyson in their coupons, and not only are you going to get this for between 10-20 percent off, you also get a free stand. This is the best value you’re going to find on Dyson, hands down. I currently have this in my cart and am waiting to pull the trigger later this afternoon. The only question is do I gift it to my mom or keep it for myself?
This is such a steal! This is a collection of nine bestselling makeup essentials, including a full-size highlighter, brow gel, and lipstick. If you asked me to put together a collection of nine of my favorite makeup products ever, it would look very similar to this collection. I own—and genuinely love—every single product in this kit. If you have a makeup lover on your Christmas list, or if you just want to try these for yourself, this is such an amazing, cost-effective way to do so. Plus you get an additional percentage off the $48. Add this to your cart now. Just do it!
Sephora has really outdone themselves with their holiday kits this year. I love lip products. I have so many, I can’t keep track of them. This holiday kit won’t remedy that issue, in fact, it will only add to it, but I’m willing to live with that and you should be too. This kit is a collection of lip products in different formulas, shades, and finishes—including two full-size and six deluxe products. Two full size products. I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. The only product that I have not used in here is the Roller Baby lip gloss. Everything I have used and love, including two products that I swear by: the cult classic Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Very Victoria (my absolute favorite lipstick of all time) and the Laniege Lip Sleeping Mask.
Anastasia Beverly Hills is the queen of brows. She makes the absolute best brow products on the market and they are priced accordingly (aka they are pretty damn pricey). This kit comes with a full size Dipbrow pomade, a full size Dipbrow gel brush and a double ended slanted brush— all for less than $30 with the discount code. You cannot beat that value! I find that the Pomade is a little more difficult to work with (and very, very easy to be heavy handed with) so I would recommend this for someone who has a lot of experience filling in their brows or prefers a bold brow look.
Another incredible value. This kit contains a full size Brow Wiz brow pencil, a travel size Dipbrow gel and a travel size clear brow gel. This kit is perfect for anyone who fills in their brows! Brow Wiz is my favorite brow pencil of all time, and when you lock it in with the Dipbrow gel (or the clear gel if you prefer a more natural look) you’ll have perfectly polished, natural looking brows all day long.
I didn’t want to love this because of the price tag, but I do. It’s the perfect size for throwing in your purse and getting ready on the go and the colors are stunning. It’s casual enough for everyday use but you can definitely zhuzh it up for an evening look in no time flat. I’m obsessed. 10/10 recommend but only when it’s on sale, so hurry!
I didn’t plan on purchasing this, but I’m so glad I did. Patrick Ta is a celebrity makeup artist who beats the faces of the Hadid sisters among others and now has his own gorgeous makeup line. I got the shade “She’s Seductive” which is a mauve plum color that I believe would be universally flattering on almost all skin tones. The packaging is gorgeous and chic, and you get a gigantic mirror, which is always a bonus. Patrick Ta himself responded to my IG story and said this was his favorite shade. Does this mean we’re best friends now? I’ll let you know what Bella and Gigi are like. 😉
I have used full coverage foundation for my entire life because I’ve always struggled with acne and acne scarring. Jennifer Edwards at Aesthetics Med Spa has changed my skin and my life and for the first time ever I was in the market for a foundation that didn’t resemble spackle. I bought this Dior foundation on a whim because it has a natural, matte finish and medium (but buildable) coverage. I love it, and it might just be making its way into my “top foundations of all time” list. At $40, the price tag isn’t much more than any other “high-end” foundation AND you actually get a lot of product. This bad boy comes with 1.6 fluid ounces, whereas most foundations only have 1 oz.
This is my favorite primer of all time. It works well on any skin type, from dry to the oil slick that is my face, and makes your makeup apply beautifully and last all day long. If I could only use 5 makeup products for the rest of my life, this would be one of them. I got the largest size they offer because it’s the best value (allegedy the largest size is a $104 value for only $74). More expensive in the short term, but will last me until the next Sephora sale. You only need a tiny bit!
I got this because I have new lips and I’m obsessed with lipcolor now (lol, I am nothing if not honest) and because I am a sucker for some luxe, over-the-top packaging. Emily, why are you like this?! I got the shade nude because it’s a beautiful pinkish brown. This looks pretty glossy on the lips (it is a oil-in-stick lipstick, after all), but in a sexy grown up way, not like a Lip Smacker chic way.
If you put a gun to my head and asked me, “what is the best lipstick on the market?” I would say this and Charlotte Tilbury. I got the shade “Sazan Nude” which is the perfect soft pink nude that doesn’t look orange on my lips and stays put all day (especially when you line your lips with Charlotte Tilbury’s Iconic Nude lip liner first). I will still live and die by Very Victoria, but this is a close second.
I am extremely brand loyal, especially when something is amazing as Olaplex. I wasn’t entirely sure what this was, but it had some pretty big claims and it was on sale (which is rare) so I went for it. This is a first-of-its-kind, highly concentrated, ultra-lightweight, reparative styling oil that works on all hair types and textures to repair, strengthen, and hydrate. I’ve been mixing it in with my No. 6 creme and have been loving how smooth, silky and frizz-free my hair has been all week.
This is the OG loose setting powder. I cannot find a powder that I like more than this one and I have tried. Hourglass, Fenty, Too Faced, you name it. They’re not as good. I use this all over my face and to set my under eye concealer. It’s the best there is and I always stock up during the sale. Get it for your mom, your aunt, yourself. Just get one!
You can’t go wrong with this concealer. It’s medium coverage concealer with a natural finish that will keep your secrets by covering your dark circles and bags all while looking natural. If you’re looking to stock up on products, I suggest adding this to your cart while you can save a few bucks.
This bronzer will definitely give you sticker shock, but it’s my absolute favorite and it doubles as a highlight. Bronzer can be tricky. It can look muddy, it can look orange—it can be difficult to get right. This takes the guesswork out of bronzer and makes you look like a sun-kissed angel all year round. Like a lot of these products, I only purchase when it’s on sale. It’s expensive, but it’s worth it.
This is probably the first highlighter that I ever purchased and it holds a special place in my heart—and for good reason. It’s so pretty. It has the most buttery texture that melts into your skin for the ultimate high-impact glow. Some pressed pigments can sit on the skin and look cakey, but this one never does. It applies seamlessly and never cakes and has a high-impact, elegant finish that doesn’t look glittery.
I want to know! What products have do you stock up on during sales and what’s sitting in your cart right now?
