It’s that time of year again! Every November the Sephora VIB sale hits, and this year I’m carrying my new found love for natural and cruelty free beauty products into the sale. There are overwhelming numbers of makeup and skincare products available at Sephora, so today I thought I’d create a guide for shopping the sale in a kinder and safer way. I’ll be sharing some products that are staples in my beauty routine as well as a few that may be making their way into my shopping cart this week.
My Makeup Staples
I talked about these at length in this post, but if you’re on the lookout for a great multipurpose product, this is it! This cream stick product can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks!
Tarte is not a 100% natural brand, but when I need a full coverage foundation with some sun protection, this is what I reach for. It contains SPF 15, but no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
I love the Becca blush and highlighters, and the fact that they are animal friendly makes them even better. The blushes are beautifully pigmented and the highlighters definitely bring the glow.
Hands down, this is my all time favorite nail polish formula. I have the shade Napa Valley and it’s a gorgeous wine for this time of year. Ciaté nail polishes are 5 free, and the packaging is so special. If you’ve been looking to treat yourself, I highly recommend one of these pretty polishes!
Tarte does a lovely selection of mineral eye palettes in matte and shimmer finishes. The shadows have great lasting power, and are such a good value, especially when they’re on sale.
When I want to use a cream highlight, I love this liquid from Josie Maran. It has a golden tone, and can be worn under foundation for a subtle glow. You can also mix this product in with more matte foundations for extra dewiness.
On My Wishlist
I’ve heard wonderful things about this cream highlighter, and love that the Sephora website is now stocking RMS!
Tinted lip balms are always a good thing, an Ilia has a lovely collection of colors. I also really love the packaging!
Tata Harper is a brand I’ve been hearing about all over the web lately, and I’d love to try this lip & cheek tint. I’m all about cream products like this, and this one looks so pretty!
Will you be picking anything up in the sale? What are some of your favorite Sephora brands? I’d love to hear!
