Unfortunately, I am late to the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale and I am definitely kicking myself. I missed out on a few items like my favorite lipgloss that was out of stock but I still got loads of great items. You have until May 1st do get your discount depending on your member status.

Since I left most of my main beauty staples in Utah I have been in need of replacing them. I have some products that stay in Ohio and some products that stay in Utah but I like to bring my current favorites with me. We were only planning on being in Ohio for 2 weeks so I just planned on getting by with my basics that were already here. Now that it has been 6 weeks I’m ready for my favorite products!
The Sephora Beauty Insider Sale is always the perfect time to stock up on skincare products, makeup, luxurious items that are a bit too expensive (hello sale!), or items you have been wanting to try. I am breaking down this post by items I already own and love as well as items that are new that I am excited to try. To see which items I have already purchased I logged into my Sephora account and viewed my purchase history. This allowed me to see everything I have bought in the past and, more importantly, what shade I bought it in.
Items I Have and Love //
Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil – I got this face oil a while ago and still have it. I use it a lot more now that I live in Utah because my skin is drier. I also like my foundation to be lightweight which is usually why I use a tinted moisturizer and save my foundation for photoshoots and events but adding a drop or two of this face oil to my foundation makes my skin feel much more moisturized for every day.
Buxum Mini Top It Off Plumping Lip Gloss Set – The Buxum lipgloss I usually order was out of stock but I saw this mini set available so I added it to my cart. I like all the colors in it and I actually like mini size lipglosses because they fit in my purses, pockets, and car better.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer Mini – I used this concealer all winter long and actually used it all up which never happens! I used it all up because this is the mini size. This size is perfect for one season, by the time I run out my skin color has slightly changed so it is perfect timing. I ordered this mini concealer one shade darker than the one I owned before to get me through spring.
Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel – No surprise I don’t leave the house without applying this eyebrow gel. I have a few of the mini brow gels which are great to keep in my car and in my purse. I just order the regular size brow gel to keep in my makeup drawer.
Too Faced Diamond Highlighter – The highlighter I have been using (and still have plenty left but it is in Utah) is Make Up For Ever Pro Light Fusion Highlighter and I really like it. I also like to try new things and I’ve always like Too Faced so I am excited to give this one a try.
Invisibobble Sprunchi Scrunchi – This scrunchi was near the checkout line and I thought I’d give it a try and I’m so glad I did. I use it at night to put my hair up when I don’t want a crease.
Glow Recipe Blueberry Gentle Cleanser – I use this as my summer cleanser. I noticed it left my skin a little dry during the winter months.
Fenty Universal Lip Luminizer – This lipgloss is so beautiful on so many different shades of skin. It has the perfect amount of shimmer and isn’t too sticky on your lips.
Drunk Elephant Night Serum – I am on my 4th bottle of this stuff. This is one product I definitely use religiously and if you are going to splurge on something while you can get it on sale, make it this serum!
New Items I Want To Try //
Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya – With warmer weather here I really wanted a lightweight moisturizer for daytime. This product can be used AM and PM but I’m going to continue using my heavy moisturizers for PM and save this for the AM.
Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation – this is the one item that I really want to try but I didn’t order it. I already have a few foundations that I want to use up before I add any more to my drawer but I love the idea that this is a serum which makes me think it would be lightweight which I prefer.
Shisheido Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream Set – A good eye cream was very high on my Sephora Sale list. I have been using a depuffing cooling eye cream which I love for the morning but I wanted something to help more with fine lines and wrinkles for my evening eye cream. I am all about kits, especially when I want to try something new. In this eye cream kit, you get an eye cream, day cream and one pair of the retinol express smoothing eye masks, which I’ll have to save till I’m done nursing this baby.
Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Firming Eye Gel Cream – I deleted this item from my cart at the last minute because I already had an eye cream in my cart. This lifting eye gel cream is a fragrance-free natural lifting eye cream that sounds right up my alley. I’m sure I’ll be ordering this before the year is over.
Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Spot Brightener – I ordered this strictly because I read on spreadfashionblog.com that she used it twice daily on fresh acne dark spots and it really worked for her. Since being pregnant I have had a lot of breakouts on my face and even if I don’t pick at them I am still left with a dark spot. I cannot wait to try this!
Ouai Shampoo and Conditioner for medium hair – All the Ouai products I have used I have really liked and I love the packaging. These bottles won’t be an eyesore in the shower and I’ll enjoy looking at them as much as I will using them.
Drunk Elephant Vitamin C Serum – I didn’t order this product because I have plenty left of the vitamin C serum I am currently using. I heard the Drunk Elephant option is just as good as the Skin Ceuticals C E Ferulic and also almost 1/3 of the price! If you’ve been wanting to try Skin Ceuticals but can’t find it in your budget try the Drunk Elephant option. When I run out of the one I am using I will definitely be replacing it with this one.
Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara – Can’t explain why I want to try this mascara when I love the one I already have. This mascara is made with beeswax and shea butter and 99% natural which I am curious about!
Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Nail Polish – This brand of polish has been used on me at a salon but I’ve never purchased it. This polish is 7- free which is always a plus when I paint my nails now that I am pregnant. I love this color, Above the Clouds, too and thin it will be so pretty for spring and summer.
Fresh Sugar Hydrating Lip Palm in Peach – I am a fan of Fresh Sugar but haven’t used their lip balm before. It’s currently warm and sunny and my lips are dry and this just sounds good to me right now!
I’d love to know what your favorite Sephora purchases are! Leave a comment below!
