The One Brand You're Not Shopping At Sephora--But Totally Should
June 16, 2016
Sephora is known for carrying almost every makeup brand under the sun. However, most people overlook Sephora’s own brand, Sephora Collection, in favor of name brands. Big mistake. Sephora Collection offers some heavy hitters that are a must-have in any beauty girl’s makeup bag. Not only are these products amazing, but they are almost half the price of other similar products in the store. Here’s my breakdown the best products from Sephora Collection:
Citrus Brush Cleaner ($11.50): I cannot live without this brush cleaner. I order multiple bottles at a time. It’s a quick drying spray that swiftly removes product from your brushes. All you need to do is spritz the product a few times on the bristles and wipe the brush off on a tissue.
Triple Action Cleansing Water ($12): This is another one of my all-time favorites. This cleansing water is comparable to more expensive brands and it is just as good. I use it every night to take off my makeup
Rouge Cream Lipstick ($12.50): Never spend money on expensive lipsticks again. Sephora’s Rouge Cream Lipstick has a creamy, soft texture that’s extremely comfortable on the lips. It also comes in every color you can imagine.
Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner ($12): This is a solid eyeliner. It gets the job done and doesn’t cost a fortune. It’s easy to apply and doesn’t budge. Bonus: it has a built in sharpener.
Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover ($11): This makeup remover breaks down everything, even waterproof makeup. The texture is oily so I suggest using a cleanser afterwards. It’s also great for people with sensitive eyes.
Cream Lip Stain ($14): This lip stain kicks butt. It has major staying power without being too drying. When you apply it, it has a creamy texture. But then it turns into a silky stain.
The Weekender Makeup Case ($38): This versatile makeup case is perfect for traveling (especially if you’re a beauty hoarder). It holds a ton of product and as a special section for your makeup brushes.
Sheet Masks ($6): Sephora offers a variety of cheap, individual sheet masks that should not be over looked. Each mask is infused with a different active ingredient intended to give your skin a boost. My personal favorite is Great Tea Mask ($6) which soothes the skin and reduces the appearance of breakouts.
Any Sephora Favorites Set: These are the BEST deal at Sephora. Each Sephora Favorites Set features of combination of sample and full-sized products from all different brands. It’s a great way to try new products. I suggest scooping up their new Chic It Easy ($49) set which features a full-sized Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat (which costs $42 regularly).
