Sephora Sale Products I'll Be Repurchasing

Talking about makeup and beauty products seems pretty silly right now when it seems like most people are wearing less makeup than ever. I know I have been taking advantage of not seeing too many people by opting to cover up with a hat instead of a cc cream. But I didn’t want the opportunity to shop one of the best beauty sales to pass by without first informing y’all about it. As my products begin to get used up throughout the year, I do my best to keep up with which things I find to be worth repurchasing when Sephora’s annual VIB event rolls around. Most of the time, I can go without the products for some time and use this 15 or 20% off sale (depending on your Sephora status) to repurchase these products for the following year. Often this makes my cart total a little bit higher since I wait to purchase the items all at once, but the saving is worth it to me. Whether you’re in the market now for a few new makeup or skincare items or not, I have shared what I am repurchasing, items I love that I would repurchase if they were empty, and a few items I’d like to try in the future here in this post. 


As for the sale, you’re going to want to use the code SPRINGSAVE at checkout to save a certain amount based on your Sephora status (aka the amount you spend at Sephora in the span of a year). 
Rogue Members receive 20% off, VIB Members receive 15% off and were able to start shopping yesterday, and Insider Members receive 10% off and can start shopping tomorrow.

If you’re curious about other products I use that are included in the sale, I’ve included two previously blog post links here as well that recommend products I still love and use often.

How my makeup turns out using the products below. 

Products I'm Repurchasing
This is my go-to form of “foundation” in the summer since it has SPF 50, gives a subtle glow, and doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin. I apply it with a beauty blender style sponge, which provides a pretty polished yet natural look. I'm purchasing it in this bundle since it's the same price as just the CC cream and it'll allow me to try out some other products from the brand as well. 

This product has definitely become a must-have in my cabinet and is the perfect pick me up when my hair is looking dull or damaged. While I can’t say I’ve tried a ton of different leave-in products, I am confident this is the best of the best given how many people who love it as much as I do. I use it at least once a month (sometimes twice if I remember) and apply it to my hair for a couple of hours before washing it out and following up with the Olaplex Shampoo and Conditioner, which I also LOVE (but have plenty of).

This duo typically lasts me two years and is pretty much all I know when it comes to the world of blush and bronzer. I like that the bronzer isn’t intimidating and paired directly with a complementary blush in one convenient compact, making it so easy to pack for travel. 

I’m all for protecting my skin from the sun, but like many people crave a healthy, natural-looking glow. This product is hands down the best way I’ve found to achieve that. I apply a pump to my face at night before my regular moisturizer, and it gives my face a little bit of natural color.

You’ll see that this product (like the last) and the next stick to the theme of appearing to be sun-kissed without any actual sun damage. If you want an instantaneous way to even out your skin tone, this is it! A lot of times in the summer, it’s all I’ll put on in terms of foundation or cc cream since it has a way of making even blemished skin look smoother and clearer. It can also be worn under makeup as a bit of added color if you’re heading somewhere that may require a little bit more coverage.

This is pretty much the only self-tanner I trust myself to use since it hasn’t failed me by looking streaky or unnatural. I typically shower it off sooner than it says, but I appreciate that it doesn’t make me feel sticky or smell overly like fake tanner. 

I received this perfume a few years ago for Christmas, and it is the first perfume that I’ve ever completely used up. It smells so good, which may explain why it is so pricey. I have friends that comment that I smell good every time I spray it, which I like to think means that it’s noticeable without being too overpowering.

Other Favorites I Love But Don't Need More Of: 
Olaplex Shampoo and Conditioner – I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to switch from this shampoo and conditioner now that I’ve tried it.

Makeup Eraser – If you don’t own one of these and find yourself using makeup wipes, go ahead and add this magic product to your cart. It removes makeup entirely by just putting some water on the cloth. I was so impressed by this product that I gifted it to a few friends for Christmas one year, and they were equally as impressed.

Sephora Collection Smoothing Cream – I’m not sure if it’s a placebo effect or not, but when I use this before blow-drying my hair, it feels more manageable and smoother. 

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – I purchased this last spring when I knew I had a lot of weddings and wedding-related events that I’d be attending and would need my makeup to look good for. I had read a bunch of reviews, and everyone seemed pretty impressed by this product, so I gave it a try. I was so impressed and will definitely repurchase it eventually when I run out and have a number of dressier events to attend.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – I found this as a deal paired with some other products I already knew I liked and gave it a try. It’s not quite as great as the Armani foundation listed above (although it’s half the price!) but is an excellent fuller coverage option to have on hand. 

Bare Minerals Loose Powder Foundation – I think this may have been the first makeup product I ever owned and have pretty much had one in my bathroom ever since. Why fix what isn’t broken?

Becca Pressed Highlighter – Highlighter is intimidating to me. Too much and you look like a disco ball, but just the right amount seems to pull everything together exceptionally well. I love this highlighter and have only ever bought it in the mini size since a little goes a long way.
