Save Your Money – Shop Sephora

I will point out that this is not sponsored, I just really love Sephora Brand make up.

Over the years I have experimented with a lot of cosmetics. I have combination skin that loves to react very visibly and it loves to itch when products don’t work. I have very dry skin in some areas, very oily skin in other areas and in the middle is just red from sun and wind.

I have tried a lot of drug store brands and have found a lot of them bother my skin, even the $25.00 dollar foundations at the drug store often bother me. So I started trying Sephora brand make up, because it’s also very affordable but it’s quality is certainly higher than drug store.

Sephora 10 HR Wear Perfection Foundation

The 10HR Wear Foundation is my go to foundation. It costs $26.50 and it has very high coverage, very little scent, it’s incredibly bendable and it comes in a pump bottle. It has 0.84 oz, which may not seem like a lot, but one bottle will last me months and months of daily wear because it takes so little to cover your whole face.

Sephora Pro Palette

I have one of the Pro Palettes. The pigment is incredible and the pans are very large. It’s 28 0.04 oz pans and it comes at $85.00 for this massive palette. Thankfully, this palette goes on sale fairly often so you can get it 15% or 25% off depending on the time of year. Again, with the amount of pigment, a little goes a long way with this product. I have found that it’s a well matched palette, as almost every shade can be thrown in with another and come out looking polished. They are very easy to work with and I found blending was a breeze. There are three very light shimmer shades in the top left corner of the palette that are almost pigment less, and they make for a beautiful addition over other matte shades in the palette.

Sephora Tinsel Time Liquid Glitter

When I got these I doubted they would be any good because the set of four cost me $9.00, but low and behold, they pack colour on your lids so quickly. One quick pass for a little shimmer, two passes for very visible glitter, three passes and you can’t see the skin underneath! They usually go for $18.00 and they are worth it. I have found after multiple uses that they come off very easily if you just let your make up remover (or micellar water) sit for a moment before trying to wipe them away.

Sephora Make No Mistake High Coverage Concealer

This product called itself high coverage, and it is. A small drop under each eye covers my entire eye region, my nose and forehead. It’s $18.50. I compared it to the Nars concealer when I was in store, and the Nars most comparable coverage was $20.00 more! Save your money, and get this non creasing concealer instead.

I won’t claim to have bought every product in Sephora, but being the little animal I am, I swatch everything when I go to the store, and I have thoroughly enjoyed their holiday palettes this year. I once owned their lip glitter stick and it was just a joyful product, that I admittedly used on my eyes rather than my lips, but I loved it. Do you love Sephora brand? Let me know in the comments. I do just love that they maintain a high standard in their quality, they keep a diverse collection available all year round and they don’t bump up the price to match the brands they carry in their store.

Tell me which products of theirs you love, or which ones you are dying to try!
