I got together with my good friend Susan Yara of Mixed Makeup to share our latest Sephora hauls. While Susan and I are both full-fledged beauty junkies, we both shopped for very different items and are excited to share them with you all. Keep reading to learn more about what each of us grabbed from Sephora and be sure to watch the full video below!
I had heard great things about the Olehenriksen Balancing Force Oil Control Toner and loved it, so I went ahead and bought my second bottle. Since I have sensitive skin, I’m always looking for a toner that removes excess oil and impurities without drying or irritating my skin, and this one gets the job done. I’m also a huge fan of face mists and wanted to try something new, so I went for Too Faced’s Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray. It’s infused with coconut water so it’s super hydrating and you can use it on clean skin before applying makeup, after applying your makeup to set it and to refresh your skin throughout the day. I’ve always loved Milk Makeup’s different sticks, so I was excited to buy the Hydrating Oil Stick for some extra moisture. I like applying this to the high points of my cheeks before foundation to give my skin a dewy sheen. Of course, I couldn’t leave Sephora without a Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask since I’ll be doing more traveling soon. We were sold out on our site so I had to grab some extras from Sephora to ensure my skin wouldn’t deal with any dryness or puffiness for the next few weeks!
Susan picked up some great makeup products while at Sephora, starting with Urban Decay’s new Backtalk Eye & Face Palette. It’s inspired the brand’s best-selling Backtalk Vice Lipstick shade and is double-sided with a variety of highlighters and eyeshadows. Benefit’s new and improved Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel also made it into her haul, and the new formula creates a natural fullness and defines your brows. For all of the eyeliner lovers our there, Bobbi Brown’s new Long-Wear Liquid Liner should be part of your next beauty haul as well. The formula is said to last for up to 12 hours, and both matte and shimmer finishes are available. Susan loves skincare as much as I do so she doubled up on masks with the Erno Laszlo Multi-Task Eye Serum Mask and the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask to keep her skin extra hydrated.
