I'm a Beauty Writer: Here's what I'm buying at Sephora Fall Sale
Beauty lovers! It's time to get excited again as it's time for Sephora Beauty Sale this fall. It's the time of the year to buy gifts for beauty lovers in your life, stock up on favorites, and add exciting new products to your cart that you've always wanted.
You have to be a Sephora member to access the sales, but don't worry because it's free to join, and signing up will only take a few minutes. There are three membership levels, and you can access thousands of beauty finds:
Insiders- This is for anyone who has signed up, and you'll get 10% off all orders between October 31 and November 6.
VIB Members- If you spent at least $350 last year, you get 15% off all orders between October 31 and November 6.
Rouge Members- Those who spend $1000 or more a year can access the sale from October 27 to November 6 with 20% off anything in the cart.
All members get 30% off the Sephora Collection between October 27 and November 6 with the code TIMETOSAVE. Of course, some exclusions and terms apply, and you can't stack discounts.
Generally, I won't buy more than two of anything because all beauty products have an expiration date, so enjoy the savings, but don't get too crazy before checking your bank account.
Let's go shopping:
I love Laneige lip sleeping masks, and this set has five flavors- Berry, Gummy Bear, Sweet Candy, Mint Choco, and Mango. They are super cute, easy to travel with, and great all year around, especially for winter.
I'm a big fan of Tatcha because it's such a good brand, so this sale is a great time to splurge. This set has a mini cleansing balm that gently removes makeup and full-size Indigo Overnight Repair Serum in Cream Treatment for firmer, radiant skin. Plus, this set works for all skin types.
The first time I tried this Paula's Choice Liquid Exfoliant, my skin felt smoother, clearer, and more glowy, and I fell in love with it, so it's definitely a product I trust when I need help. It's no surprise; it's so popular and well-loved because it does what it says, so I strongly recommend this.
I trust my friend Jess for the best makeup recommendations, so when she said I needed this Hourglass palette, I knew I had to have it. This limited edition palette is available in three options: Leopard, Jellyfish, and Snake, and I am choosing Leopard. It's a one-stop shop for your face to highlight, glow, contour, and all. Plus, Hourglass will donate five percent of annual profits from this collection to the Nonhuman Rights Project.
This limited-edition palette was released last year and obviously sold out, so people were waiting for it. And it's back, so now is a perfect time to get your hands on this. This gorgeous eyeshadow palette has 12 gorgeous shades in matte, metallic, and glossy shimmer finishes that can create looks for day and night.
This year, I fell in love with blush and realized how it elevates my whole look, and for the cooler months, I love cream blush. This Merit set has three shades in Fox, Beverly Hills, and Rouge, and they work for all skin tones and give you a healthy flush—such a fun addition to your makeup vanity.
Recently, I read an article about the product that gives Amal Clooney her gorgeous hair, and it was THIS Color Wow product to get volume and shine, so I had to have it, and it totally works. It's perfect for fine and/or colored hair to get an enviable volume that lasts all day, and it makes my hair so soft.
I love Olaplex, and this kit is excellent for travel as it keeps my hair looking perfect without all the professional help. This cute kit has No. 3 Hair Perfector, No. 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo, No. 6 Bond Smoother, and No. 7 Bonding Oil, and it works great for my fine hair, but it's great for all hair types and textures.
I'm a sucker for good smells, and I love that you can use this mist for your body and your hair. Amber Haze is a warm floral blend of saffron, jasmine, and amber. It's sweet without being overpowering, and I love it for the daytime.
One of my favorite things about the holidays is when brands release sets where you can test different products together to see which works best for you, and they are so easy to carry in your purse. These scents layer well together, and you get eight best-sellers in one. My favorite is Vanilla 28.
