Sephora Holiday 2023 Savings Event

Sephora has had a lot of sales this year! In July was National Lipstick day where most lip products were 50% off! In August they had a surprise 20% coupon you could only get from employees. Then in September they had one day 50% off deals for select products. And next in October they had one day 50% off deals for hair products. End of October brings us to their annual Holiday 2023 Savings Event. After this, they will have a Black Friday sale as well. Here's what's in my cart or what I already own that I recommend you buy. 


NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Color Queen Olive

I recently bought this in Olive and love it for eyeliner because it's a thick soft pencil so it looks like you put eyeshadow under your eye, not a harsh pencil line. The copper color would be so beautiful on my lids, if you have tan skin. 


 Rare Beauty's Eyeshadow Stick in Growth looks like a similar copper color.

Hourglass Lip Balm in Trace

I loved Hourglass's lip balm and wore it all the time until it quickly ran out. I found that Glossier has a color dupe, is half the price for double the amount of product.

Glossier Ultralip High Shine Lipstick in Trench which is more sheer and contains hyaluronic acid, Jojoba Seed Oil and Meadowfoam Seed Oil.

GXVE Highlighter This is Gwen Stefani's line. Its a multi-dimensional Illuminating Talc-Free Highlighter that has a gradient of shimmering powders ranging from subtle satin to holographic which creates a  flattering glow. I like the shade Homegrown Glow which is a  peach champagne.

GXVE Clean 24-Hr Gel Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner in shade Bathwater - electric colbalt blue
I get so many compliments every time I wear blue mascara with my brown eyes so I thought I should try an eye liner as well. 

Two new concealers were released in the last couple months that I want to try.

Haus Labs Concealer This is Lady Gaga's line. It comes in 31 shades which I love because I found 3 colors that worked for me which means they are offering tons of different subtle options. It gives you full coverage and has skincare ingredients:  Niacinamide: Known to brighten and boost skin hydration - Fermented Arnica: Reduces the look of redness and irritation- Hyaluronic Acid Complex.

Tower 28 Concealer comes in 20 shades and is a hydrating serum that gives you medium coverage so this is perfect for your no makeup days. It has skincare ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid: Hydrates to keep skin looking supple, smooth, and bouncy - Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract: Sooths and calms sensitive skin- Lysine: Supports the production of collagen and repairs and prevents dryness.

Huda Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette

This came out a couple years ago and I thought it was a pink palette, but I realize now it has the perfect shades of dusty purples - lilacs and mauves. You get eight mattes; three high-shine metallics; three pearly, soft-shine metallics; three quartz-inspired multi-shimmer marble creams; and one pearly gloss hybrid. The color story is stunning and the colors are vibrant and very pigmented! This picture only shows half the colors. 

Last year I bought Anastasia Beverly Hills Nouveau Eyeshadow Palette which I love and is so perfect for fall! It's so beautiful and has olive greens and rust colors, just beautiful muted fall colors. The quality is impeccable and blends so well. The purple color is my favorite but you can ignore that color to see the fall color story which combines mattes and multidimensional metallics. On the bottom row the color Peacock is a duo-chrome blueish-green brown with pink reflects.  Muse, last color on far right of the bottom row, is a metallic dark chocolate brown which I use to create a winged eyeliner.


Commodity Gold Travel Spray

An Amber woody fragrance with notes of juniper, musk, vanilla, amber, sandalwood, benzoin. This is the kind of vanilla that I love! Done very elegant and sexy without being juvenile or basic. It’s warm, ambery, and evokes feelings of a cozy blanket in the fall. Not too sweet, but think vanilla bourbon. A deliciously woody, vanillic, lightly sweet, classically cozy scent. Sillage doesn't last long but oh man does this smell good. 


Caudalie Mini Beauty Elixir Prep, Set, Glow Face Mist. It has essential oils that quickly tightens the look of pores, and sets makeup for visibly dewy, glowing skin.



I've been using this for awhile and need to reorder. A leave-in treatment mask for all hair types that clinically reverses damage in four minutes. The patented peptide technology works to repair damage from bleach, color, chemical services, and heat, restoring strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce to hair.

Virtue Hair Oil

An oil that smooths and protects dry, damaged hair, giving hair its healthiest shine one shake at a time. This is a very lightweight so its perfect for all hair types and has a light coconut scent. I apply hair oil everyday on my ends. 

Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo

A moisture-balancing shampoo formulated to fortify weakened or damaged hair with Argan Oil.

Holiday Sets

This is limited edition and will only be around for a short while. It comes in three shades for different skin tones. The palette includes fall appropriate blushes, a highlighter, bronzer and finishing powder. I love their finishing powder! Since this costs $90, you definitely want to buy it on sale!

Pores & Glow Duo Minis Set

The set includes their Pore Minimizing Instant Detox Mask which I already have. It's a clay mask that cleanses and visibly tightens pores for clear-looking, more luminous skin.

Tatcha Minis

A great value set of six mini of their bestselling  products including  the Camellia Cleansing Oil, The Rice Wash,  The Deep Cleanse,  The Essence, The Water Cream and The Dewy Skin Cream.

Holiday Makeup Must Haves  An 11-piece set of bestsellers including four full-size products from KVD Beauty, Milk Makeup, Lawless and beautyblender.
