It’s that time of year again! I feel like I just put together my Sephora VIB Spring Sale picks but it was, in fact, a year ago now!
As I put today’s post together of my Sephora sale picks, I included new recommendations as well as some of my forever favorites.
Please note that I did not cover every beauty product category in my Sephora VIB Spring Sale picks — If you have any questions or need recommendations for specific skincare or makeup, please ask!
Dior Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster Pen
I’ve mentioned the Dior Flash Lumizer Radiance Booster Pen many times and listed it as one of my top picks in last year’s Sephora VIB sale post. If you don’t already use this product, it’s time to get it! It’s still a top 3 must-have makeup product for me. I use it every day as a concealer/brightener. As soon as the Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster pen runs out, I go to the store for another one. It’s really not optional!
“The weightless, white-light pigments in the Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster Pen fuse with the skin to capture light around the eyes and across the face for a dewy glow. Formulated with Dior’s beautifier complex™, the blend is enriched with hyaluronic acid microspheres to combat fine lines and wrinkles for petal-soft, youthful-looking skin. Signs of fatigue are concealed, the eyes are visibly revived, and facial shadows are illuminated for a contoured and radiant complexion.”
I’ve been writing about Dior’s Lip Glow basically since I started this blog in 2013. It’s always a Sephora top pick and is a cult favorite too. I love Dior Lip Glow because it provides hydration like a lip balm while coming in various colors that are light yet bring out the natural pigment in your lips at the same time.
The Lip Glow always makes a cute little gift when you don’t know what to buy someone but want to buy something small yet useful. There’s the slight new version, Lip Glow To The Max, which swirls two pigments in one.
Dreamskin Perfect Skin Cushion SPF 50
Are you tired of hearing about this product yet?
“A compact of tinted skincare that blurs imperfections and helps to minimize visible signs of aging while you’re on the go, leaving skin looking flawless and luminous while protecting with SPF 50.”
The Dreamkin Perfect skin cushion is at the very top of my MUST-HAVE makeup/skincare products list. Not only is it giving you an SPF 50 for your face, it hydrates, evens out your skin tone and contains treatments for fine lines, wrinkles, etc. You can wear it as your sunscreen while running without clogging pores, it’s perfect for summer when at the beach and great for everyday wear too. I honestly wear it as my foundation every day and only add additional foundation if I am going out at night or somewhere special where I need additional coverage. This Airflash Spray Foundation layers really well if you are looking for foundation.
The Dreamskin Perfect Skin Cushion is priced really well because once you buy the compact, you just need to replace the refill portion.
Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara (Catwalk Spectacular Makeup Look Set)
Dior is KNOWN for their mascaras. I recommend all Dior Mascara but this particular set includes the Iconic Overcurl Mascara and mini-rouge lipstick (999 Red which is Dior’s most popular red). I recently bought this set — it’s a great value, not to mention, everyone needs a red lipstick.
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream Moisturizer
So this is an interesting twist. Everyone seems to love Drunk Elephant, right? Last year, I tried this Drunk Elephant cult-favorite moisturizer and did not like it. I was not impressed. And then recently, I received another sample and gave it another try. This time, I LOVE IT. I can’t explain why my opinion changed or what happened but I do love this moisturizer now. It’s packaged super well to retain the potency of the ingredients and is great for sensitive skin.
This all-purpose rescue cream, whipped into an airy blend of six rare African oils, recovers and locks in intense moisture for hours after application. Plantain extract helps visibly brighten skin, while sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer easily soaks in and releases long-lasting hydration. In addition, antioxidant-rich fermented green tea helps combat signs of aging and relieves irritation from environmental stressors. Loaded with omega acids, Lala Retro™ is a silky, dream come true for tired, dehydrated, dry skin.
Also, I recommend this Drunk Elephant The Littles Set which is an 8-piece collection of their skincare products.
Right now I am using this First Aid Beauty cleanser. It’s great for sensitive skin at a good price. I do recommend Clinique Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam too.
And, a forever favorite is the Dior Hydra Life Lotion to Foam Fresh Cleanser. It’s more expensive but it does last quite a few months.
I always loved NARS and their eye shadows are terrific. This new NARS Ingited Eye Shadow Palette is a beautiful mix of eye shadow shades all in one place to wear on the daily.
If you have sensitive eyes, NARS eye shadows may prove irritating. I like Clinique Lid Pop in this situation. These individual eye shadows shouldn’t irritate your eyes and do go on well, and stay on well. That’s the thing about eye shadow — it should have a smooth application with color that actually stays on.
As always, I recommend Dior eye shadow palettes. The BACKSTAGE palettes are well-priced and come with 8 shades plus a base.
New and of interest, try the NARS liquid highlighter. Or, the Charlotte Tillbury Hollywood Beauty Highlighter Wand.
I still recommend the Dior BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette. Well-priced with 4 color/highlight options.
My Daily Beauty Product Routine (skincare/makeup) – Lots of product info!
Summer Skincare For Runners – A must-read if you ask me 🙂
Are you planning to shop the Sephora VIB sale? What’s on your list?
Which eyeliner do you like best? I could use a new one!
Great recommendations Meredith!
I’m so tempted by that cushion foundation and the whipped cream moisturizer – both sound perfect for summer! My skin is a bit dehydrated at the moment so the moisiturizer sounds perfect for me right now.
Thanks so much for recommending them!
