Sephora Fragrance for All Event Phlur, Jo Malone, Prada

Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt

Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt is my go-to. I’ve worn this one for years and love it for the unique sea salt vibe it has. It’s earthy and woody while still being fresh. This is my everyday perfume.

Notes include ambrette seeds, sea salt and sage.

Prada Paradoxe

Prada Paradoxe is a newer launch and it’s beautiful! It’s a very strong warm floral which has sweet notes. It feels like a fun date night kind of scent I think will suit a wide range of tastes. This is one of the longest lasting fragrances I’ve tried. It’s bright, deep and sweet all at the same time.

Notes include neroli bud, white amber and white musk.

Prada Paradoxe Perfume

Phlur Missing Person

Phlur Missing Person is another daily go-to for me. It’s the best floral musk that has a skin-like feel to it. Very natural, very soothing and it feels like me but better.

Notes include Skin Musk, Bergamot Nectar, Blonde Wood

Phlur Missing Person\Phlur Missing Person

Phlur Somebody Wood

Phlur Somebody Wood is another one I’ve fallen head over heels in love with. It’s a unisex scent I think would suit a wide range of tastes. It’s warm with a mix of earthy sandalwood and amber. It’s sensual and feels like a cozy hug or soft warm blanket to me. I love that it has a little bit of sweetness to balance out the amber.

Notes include sandalwood, amber and musk

Beauty Favorites Haircare Sephora

Best Hair Care and Styling Picks from Sephora

November 3, 2022

ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler Smooth Sleek Hair

Many of you have asked for gift ideas for the best value beauty sets and I think hair care is one of the categories with the best options. I think hair care sets or tools are a no-fail option – every single person I know is always looking for a great hair mask or new tool to try. One of my favorite beauty gifts of all time was the Dyson Airwrap Styler (original version) which I use nearly every day.

With the Sephora sale in full swing I wanted to highlight my favorites in haircare. It’s a nice time to save on gift sets or something you wanted for yourself. I’ve split up my favorites by category. Use code SAVINGS at checkout to save:

  • Rouge Members save 20% off 10/28 to 11/7
  • VIB Members save 15% off 11/1 to 11/7
  • Insiders save 10% off purchases 11/3 to 11/7

Hair Care loves Oribe, Olaplex and Christophe

Hair Tools

ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler Curled Hair

Here are my favorite hair styling tools:

  • ghd Platinum+ Styler – 1″ Flat Iron Gift Set with Paddle Brush & Heat Resistant Bag ($279)– This is my go-to hair styling tool for a sleek smooth hair look or easy curls. This holiday they have it in a value gift set with their Paddle Brush + Travel Case (love!!!). For those who want to see it in action you can see my natural hair state in this video. This really makes a huge difference!
  • ghd Paddle Brush ($35) – This is available in the gift set listed above and individually, I really love it. It’s the perfect size and and weight. Love that it’s sturdy and well made.
  • Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($429)– Love this for a good blow out. This is smaller than the Airwrap which makes it easier to travel with. I’ve had mine since 2017 and still love it to this day.
  • Dyson Airwrap Styler ($599) – I have the original of this and think it’s the best of the best. So many options with the attachments, easy to use, however if you don’t really curl your hair, opt for the Supersonic.
  • T3 AirLuxe Hair Dryer ($199.99) or Afar Lightweight Hair Dryer ($179.99) – While I think the Dyson is the best of the best, I understand it’s not in everyone’s budget. T3 also makes great tools (both of these are under $200). I’ve gifted these to friends and it definitely has a WOW factor.

Shampoo + Conditioner

Oribe Home & Away Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo & Conditioner Set

I rotate frequently with hair care as there are so many great formulas out these days. My top 4 brands from Sephora include Oribe, Olaplex, Kerastase and Briogeo. There are different formulas for different hair types and needs. These are my most repurchased formulas:

Hair Masks

I have to admit I’ve been neglecting hair masks this year but I started using them again and noticed a world of difference in smoothness and shine. These are my favorites

Heat Protectant/Leave In/Primers

Kerastase Serum Chroma Thermique Hair Serum

Since I use heat tools on a regular basis a leave in conditioner, primer or heat protectant is essential. There are tons of options and I know it can get overwhelming on which one to use and when. Here are my favorites and when I use them (a lot of these are versatile):

For flat irons or curling tools:

For blow dryer heat:

Hourglass Holiday Ambient Lighting Palettes 2022

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Face Palettes ($85 each) this year are stunning. I love the packaging design and the colors in each of the palettes. There are a lot of new shades this year and I think there is a good range of colors to suit different skin tones! My favorite is the Elephant Palette but they’re all stunning.

  • Butterfly Palette with Ethereal Light, Incandescent Light, Soft Flush (new), Diffused Light, Sunset Glow (new), Celestial Strobe Light (new)

I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Phlur and they have a beautiful gift set with my favorite scent! The Missing Person Gift Set ($98) has a full size perfume + mini spritzer for travel. If you’re new to the line definitely try the Phlur Discovery Sampler Set ($35, I also love Somebody Wood and Phloria).

Phlur Missing Person Gift Set Duo Sephora

Mini eyeshadow palettes make for the perfect stocking stuffer. I’ve been really impressed with the Tarte Mini Tartelette Jewel Palette ($21). Colors are great everyday kind of neutrals and I love the sparkle toppers. I also recommend checking out Anastasia Beverly Hills, Natasha Denona and Urban Decay for eye great palettes under $30.

Tarte Mini Tartelette Jewel Palette

There are tons of great lip sets and minis this year! The Rare Beauty Mini Kind Words Matte Lip Duo in Humble ($20) is super cute. The colors are super mini but there’s enough product to get a decent sampling of how the formula wears. Humble is a great everyday neutral.

Pat McGrath also has some great options. The Mini Lip Shine Trio in Nude Venus ($25) has three perfect nude pinks (I hope they bring these out in the full size). As a huge fan of the LUST: Gloss I think the Pat McGrath LUST: Gloss Duo in Nude Dimension ($30) is a great buy for the neutral lip lover.

Pat McGrath Holiday Sets Sephora

For the face the NARS Behave Backstage Cheek Set ($39) is really cute. It comes with a Mini Powder Blush, Mini Multiple and Full-Size Liquid Blush in the shade Behave which is a soft peach.

NARS Behave Set

For a luxurious treat definitely check out the Westman Atelier Sets. The Westman Atelier Squeaky Clean Lip & Cheek Duo ($48) in Chouchette + Ma Puce is super cute.

Haircare Sephora

New Hair Care Tries & Current Loves

August 29, 2022

Hair Care Loves from Sephora

Sharing a roundup of some new hair care tries from Sephora today along with an update on other products I tried earlier this year!

Dae Monsoon Moisture Milk Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner

There are a few new shampoo and conditioner formulas out now. As a fan of the Dae Haircare line I immediately purchased the new Monsoon Moisture Milk Hydrating Shampoo ($26) and Monsoon Moisture Hydrating Conditioner ($26). Both are really nice for adding moisture back into the hair. The Shampoo lathers nicely and has a soft almost meadowfoam like scent to it. The Hydrating Conditioner is like a thick cream, but still has enough fluidity to pump out easily.

I really like both, but if you have normal/oily hair I’d recommend sticking with their Signature Shampoo and Conditioner (both also great and versatile, and they smell like bubblegum, in a good way!)

Olaplex No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo

I love Olaplex and they recently launched their No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo ($30) and I really like it. It’s a great clarifying formula to remove product buildup, sweat and dirt that accumulates. You do need to follow up with a conditioner or mask, I use their No 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner when I use this.

Briogeo Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Cream

For hair care styling and anti-frizz treatments I have a few staples I wanted to give some love to. I’ve tried so many blow dry heat protectants and the Briogeo Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Cream ($26) is one I keep going back to. It is a lightweight cream with the perfect texture for my hair. Doesn’t weigh it down, doesn’t end up being too thick, leaves hair smooth and soft!

dpHUE Color Fresh Leave-In Conditioner Mist

The dpHUE Color Fresh Leave-In Conditioner Mist ($28) continues to be a favorite leave in conditioner spray I use on damp hair.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo

For dry shampoo I really love the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo ($30). It has their fast-absorbing powders to soak up sweat. I still love the original version but have the advance formula in rotation right now. I brought the mini with me to Key West last month.

Leave in Hair Masks ColorWow, K18, Living Proof

For the weekly mask/treatment there are three I’ve been testing and really like. You don’t need all three. Pick one based on your hair type and needs. I think these are a nice alternative to the rinse out conditioner or rinse out mask because these you can leave in the hair.

The ColorWOW Dream Coat Supernatural Anti-Frizz Treatment ($28) is my favorite because of the formula and spritz style applicator. You can spray and coat your hair evenly and it lasts several shampoos. It acts like a keratin treatment to smooth out the hair.

Another great option is the K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask ($75). This is a leave-in treatment you use on towel dried or damp hair. When I use this I don’t use a rinse out conditioner. A little goes a long way. Leave it in the hair for about 5 minutes to activate before styling. Really works to smooth out hair and restore moisture.

The latest in leave-in treatments is the Living Proof Triple Bond Complex Leave-in Hair Treatment ($45). This is the newest one I’ve tried and I really like this one too. With this formula a little goes a very long way, so I’d say less is more. This is another product you leave in the hair after shampoo/cleansing. Leave it in 10 minutes before blow drying or heat styling. It’s designed to be a hair strengthener that leaves it smooth and shiny.

Sephora Haul + New Beauty Tries

May 20, 2022

Sephora Haul Review

I have a Sephora haul to share today with a look at some new beauty launches in skincare and makeup! This month is my birthday month so I picked up my Beauty Insider Birthday Gift. There are a few options to pick from and I opted for the Laura Mercier set with the mini powder and caviar stick. The set is super cute and I can’t wait to try the eyeshadow stick (it’s a new color)! If you’re not a Beauty Insider yet you can sign up here. They offer a lot of fun perks. You’ll get access to events, early access to product launches, deluxe samples and more. You can Enjoy Free shipping on all orders with code FREESHIP. Exclusions apply.

Here’s a look at what I hauled so far this month. More beauty newness is coming at the end of the month which I’m looking forward to (lots of new bronzers) but here’s what I’ve tested so far.

Sephora Haul Picks

Skincare Picks

Sephora Haul Skincare

Sephora Haul Fenty Skin, Dior Beauty and Glow Recipe

I picked up a few new launches in skincare. I’m a huge fan of detox masks to help clear up the skin and pores. The Fenty Cookies N Clean Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask is one of the gentlest pore masks I’ve ever tried and it looks like cookies and cream ice cream (but without any scent)! Most detox masks are very strong which I don’t mind, but this one is super gentle, non-drying, has charcoal and salicylic acid and helped to clear out pores. It sold out almost immediately but I just checked online and it restocked!

I have been a huge fan of Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer but wanted to try something new. They just launched the Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Acid Serum. It’s a nice lightweight serum with AHA and BHA to help smooth the skin and reduce breakouts. I typically get breakouts around my chin especially in the summertime so I’m really excited to use this one this summer. I’ve only used it a few times so far but I like the texture and feel. It is heavily scented so if you’re sensitive to fragrance I recommend doing a patch test first.

I wanted to give the Dior La Mousse OFF/ON Foaming Face Cleanser another shout out. If you’re looking to switch up your spring to summer cleansing routine I highly recommend giving this one a look. It’s effective at removing makeup and cleaning the face but doesn’t strip the skin.

Perfume

Jo Malone Crystal Campion Cologne

There are so many beautiful new perfumes out this season! I hauled a few of the newer Jo Malone launches earlier in the spring and decided to add one more to my collection. I picked up the Jo Malone Crystal Campion Cologne which I think is a beautiful floral with watery notes. On my skin it’s more floral and it smells like spring. Notes include blackcurrant and campion flower accord. Although I don’t really detect the blackcurrant.

I’ve been so interested in the Phlur perfume line and decided to try the Phloria Eau de Parfum (9.5 ml travel size). It’s pure love! It’s a warm jasmin floral that reminds me of Tom Ford Soleil Blanc. It truly is like sunshine in a bottle. I’m considering the full size but also want to try some of their other fragrances before committing to a larger bottle.

Phlur Phloria Eau de Parfum

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ’68 Beija Flor Hair & Body Fragrance Mist is a really nice sweet gourmand scent. It matches the Body Cream perfectly. If you’re into sweet ones this is worth checking out! It’s fairly potent even though it’s a body mist.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ’68 Beija Flor Hair & Body Fragrance Mist

Lips

Gucci Beauty Liquid Lipsticks

Gucci Beauty launched Liquid Lipsticks and they sold out almost instantly but finally restocked. I picked two shades in 144 Grace Cinnamon (nude pink) and 413 Cornelia Pink (cool pink). These are whipped liquid lipsticks that have a weightless feel. On the lips they feel light and airy. They do take a little bit to dry/set but once they do they don’t move. I think they’re very good for a liquid matte but I’m more of a gloss girl and would absolutely love it if they made this in a shine formula!

Cornelia Pink

Also added a swatch (above) of the Gucci Crayon Contour Des Lévres Lip Liner in Nude which sells out frequently but has also been restocked. I think it’s a really nice go-with-everything neutral.

Eyes

Benefit Precisely Brow Bonus Defining Eyebrow Pencil Value Set

For the eyes Benefit launched a brow duo which I snapped up immediately. I really like their brow pencils so stocked up on the Precisely Brow Bonus Defining Eyebrow Pencil Value Set. I use either shade 2.5 or 3 because my brows are lighter in color than my hair.

Last is a look at the Tarte Quick Stick Waterproof Shadow and Liner in Golden Pink Luster/Black. I hauled a few shades last month and loved them I picked up a few more. This one is probably my favorite for a quick and easy eye look. Once they set they don’t budge which is ideal for summer. Highly recommend. They also have a few matte options!

Sephora Haul Picks Gucci Beauty, Dior, Fenty Skin

That wraps up my haul roundup for now! I am anxiously waiting for the summer bronzers to launch in the next few weeks! Will definitely be sharing a look at them once they launch.

Spring Beauty Haul Picks from Sephora

April 8, 2022

Sephora Spring Beauty Haul

It’s been a whirlwind of a couple weeks! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen why! I hope to get back to regular posting soon. I have a Sephora haul with some quick first impressions of what I bought. I haven’t been able to try everything I hauled from the Spring Savings Event but did swatch most of my order.

Use code SAVESPRING at checkout to save. You can use the code multiple times throughout the event! The access dates and details for each tier:

  • Rouge Members save 20% off 4/1 – 4/11
  • VIB Members can save 15% off 4/5 – 4/11
  • Insiders save 10% off 4/7 – 4/11

Sephora Spring Beauty Haul

Base Picks: Rare Beauty + It Cosmetics

Rare Beauty Positive Light Tinted Moisturizer + It Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow

I hauled two makeup bases and both are hits. The Rare Beauty Positive Light Tinted Moisturizer is a really nice sheer coverage tinted moisturizer that has a dewy finish but isn’t too dewy. I absolutely love it and found a good match to 32N in store (I also picked up 34W because I know I’ll get tan very soon).

I also ordered the new It Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow Lightweight Foundation. I ordered Medium Tan sight unseen and it’s a perfect match. I prefer this formula to the Regular CC+ Cream because the formula seems to be easier to work with and looks more natural on my skin. Color-wise the Nude Glow runs a bit deeper than the Regular CC+ Cream. I have Medium Tan in both and the Nude Glow formula works perfectly for me. For the regular version I will need to order Neutral Tan color soon.

Also available on the It Cosmetics website if your shade is sold out, they have sales and good GWPs there on their website!

Face/Cheeks

 

I ordered the new Fenty Rihanna Sun Stalk’R Face + Eye Bronzer Highlighter Palette and I love the overall concept and look. On my arm the colors swatched very patchy. I’m hoping it performs better on the face since the online reviews so far are positive.

Fenty Rihanna Sun Stalk’R Face + Eye Bronzer Highlighter Palette

Fenty Rihanna Sun Stalk’R Face + Eye Bronzer Highlighter Palette swatches

The new Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Blushes have been in rotation lately so I picked up another color during the sale. These take a little extra work to blend for me since they have a unique formula that dries/sets quickly on me. I apply on the apples with a Tom Ford foundation brush and blend quickly. Once they set they stay put on me. I like Southbound the best which is a soft pink color.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Blush swatchs

Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duo in Eclat Nu just arrived and I absolutely love it. It’s sold out at Sephora right now but I’m hoping it will restock before the sale ends! This reminds me of their previous duo in Lissome but I haven’t had a chance to swatch/compare. I think it’s a really stunning subtle duo for spring to summer. I wish they would add more options for us with this because the formula is one of my favorites! This one has a peachy nude color for one half and a pink on the other side. It’s naturally glowy in the best way.

Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duo in Eclat Nu

Eye Makeup

Tarte Quick Stick Waterproof Shadow and Liner

I hauled quite a few eye products! Picked up two of the Tarte Quick Stick Waterproof Shadow and Liner in Rose Gold/Brown and Taupe Luster/Black and love these so much I’m going to order more. These are dual-ended pencils. One side you have a cream shadow that is easy to blend and smudge with fingers. The other side has a creamy liner that is ultra pigmented.

I restocked the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadow in Champagne and love this for an all over wash of shimmer.

Tarte + Charlotte Tilbury swatches

Since I love the original Patrick Ta Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette I knew I had to order the new Patrick Ta Major Dimension II Rose Eyeshadow Palette and I am absolutely obsessed. I don’t always love rose tones for eyes but this one is wearable and really pretty. The sparkle toppers are best applied with a finger in a patting motion for me, otherwise it’s too glitzy. Overall vibe seems to be more fall than summer (to me) but I still love it.

Lips

Makeup by Mario Ultra Suede Sculpting Pencils

I picked up more of the Makeup by Mario Ultra Suede Sculpting Pencils (new shades) in Toasty, Tan, Almond and Smokey Pink. Formula seems to be just as good as the first round of shades. As soon as I saw more shades pop up I ordered them immediately. I haven’t had a chance to play with them on the lips yet but swatches look like they’re my kind of colors! Other shades swatched here.

Tarte launched a Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump and they’re gorgous. I actually purchased these from the Tarte Cosmetics website a few weeks ago but bought a back up from Sephora. The shades are mostly sold out online at Sephora now but I highly recommend looking for them at the Tarte Cosmetics website. They usually have good sales too! Formula has a slight plumping effect with a minimal tingle. Pigment is sheer-medium with a glossy finish. I’m wearing Cherry Blossom in this post.

Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump

Skincare + Hair

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask + Glowy Lip Balm

For lip treatments I decided to try the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. I didn’t like the original because it was too sweet but this Vanilla one is a lot better for me. I recently fell in love with the Laneige Glowy Lip Balm in Grapefruit so I ordered Gummy Bear and am obsessed. It smells delicious and I love the texture.

I also ordered the NARS Orgasm Lip Mask which I tried briefly today. I like it but it’s too early to say if I love it. It comes in a pot style and I would much rather it be in a squeeze tube or stick but it felt comfortable on the lips with a smooth feel!

Also ordered the Sol de Janeiro Beija Flor Elasti-Cream (it’s a Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge dupe) and picked up the new Tatcha Clarifying Clay Mask Exfoliating Pore Treatment which I am really excited to try.

Sephora Sale Haul Picks

Last one I want to mention is the K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave In Hair Mask which I hauled too. I tried the mini a few times and really liked it! I don’t know that I’d call it life changing or super unique but I liked it enough to buy the full size!

Did you haul anything fun from the Sephora sale? Or did you find any other good sales going on that you took advantage of? Seems like a lot popped up in my inbox this week but I didn’t have a chance to look at them!

The Sephora sale runs through 4/11 so there is still time to shop!
