I feel like I’ve been counting down the days until the Sephora Savings Event kicks off. This sale is highly anticipated all year, whether you’re a skincare fanatic or you love testing out new makeup. With pretty much all of Sephora’s products on discount (with just some exclusions), it’s the perfect time to stock up on all of your favorites.
Plus, with the holiday season right around the corner, the sale is a great opportunity to get some of your present shopping out of the way.
The sale kicks off on Friday, October 27 and runs through November 6. I know that it can be overwhelming to pick the items that are truly worth it (or worth giving as a gift), so I put together this list of must-haves.
I’d recommend adding to your cart and checking out as early as possible — many items sell out!
Rouge: 20% off from 10/27 – 11/6
VIB: 15% off from 10/31 – 11/6
Insider: 10% off from 10/31 – 11/6
All Tiers: 30% off Sephora Collection from 10/27 – 11/6
I’ve mentioned this dark spot treatment many times before because it is soooo good. If you have dark spots that you can’t seem to fade, this is a must.
This water to oil serum can be used either during the day or at night. It will keep your skin hydrated and dewy despite the harsh weather changes.
This is a great cream to have in your skincare lineup because it honestly does it all. It has major anti-aging benefits and is packed with hyaluronic acid which plumps the skin and fades the appearance of wrinkles.
Finding a quality vitamin C serum can be a hard task. This one by Peter Thomas Roth makes your complexion noticeably brighter and more even without causing irritation.
The fall and winter season is the perfect time to incorporate this Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. It’s a three-in-one style mask that exfoliates, peels, polishes skin. If you’re dealing with pesky pores or overall dullness, this would be smart to add to your routine one to two times a week.
You guys know I love this Tatcha cream, which I use every night to calm and soothe my skin. It’s super thick and smells amazing — a little bit goes a long way!
A tried-and-true classic that works for all skin types. I like that this face cleanser comes in a mini size so you can tote it along during travel.
Sunscreen is important to wear all year, and this moisturizer has it built-in. I will say that this one is fragrant, so if you like products that have a subtle scent, this one is for you.
If you haven’t tried this body cream yet, this is your sign to add it to your cart. Saying that it smells wonderful is honestly an understatement. Applying it will make you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation — even if it’s snowing outside.
I always like to have this face mask on hand (especially when I’m traveling.) It’s so rich and hydrating yet is at a great price point.
No skincare routine is complete without a good eye cream and this one certainly does the trick. It works wonders on dark circles, under-eye bags, and crow’s feet.
A subtle touch of sparkle is exactly what this season calls for. I have been loving this diamond-dust highlighter, which adds a polished and put-together feel to my regular makeup routine.
If you buy one product during the Sephora sale, this should be it. These brushes are all you’ll ever need to pull off any makeup look, and they would make such a nice gift.
I recently added this concealer to my routine and I’m never looking back. It’s super buildable, crease proof, and deeply hydrating — three wins in my book.
If you’re looking for a lightweight foundation that still offers good coverage, give this Ilia Skin Tint a try. You can control exactly how much coverage you want by using more or less.
This liquid blush is super hot right now — and it’s under $25! It also comes in a ton of shades and is really easy to apply.
I love a good lip color and plan to have this one on rotation throughout the season. The light beige nude looks pretty on an everyday basis, but there are a variety of options to choose from.
This Skin Tint is similar to the Ilia one above but I feel like it offers even more coverage and a blurred effect. It’s long-wearing and gives you a satin-matte finish.
Choosing a mascara is totally up to personal preference and your lash type, but this one is a go-to that never disappoints.
A pretty lip gloss that offers high-shine and plumping benefits while still hydrating your skin? Yes, please. This would make a great stocking stuffer!
Another good gift idea? This Eye Shadow Palette, which has a variety of colors that would compliment any skin tone.
These products almost never go on sale, so if you’ve been toying with the idea of trying anything from this brand, now is the time. This Reset Shampoo & Mask Set is ideal to use if you have any hair damage (from coloring or styling). It will give your hair a second life and leave it so silky and soft.
I have been taking this supplement regularly and can really tell a difference in the overall strength and health of my hair. If you have any haircare concerns, whether your strands are thinning or you have some heat damage, I’d recommend giving it a try.
A pre-blowout cream is essential to getting a salon-worthy look. This one doubles as a heat protectant that helps stubborn hair style and stay straight.
This Magic Night Serum is a forever favorite of mine and it’s ideal for all hair types. I apply it before I go to bed and I wake up with hydrated strands that smell soooo delicious.
Some of my favorite hair products are the ones I can leave on overnight. It just feels like they offer the best results. This serum is made with red camellia oil which hydrates your strands and offers soft, shiny, and frizz-free hair — all while you catch some z’s.
While it’s not the Dyson, this mini hair dryer is the perfect size to bring along with you while you travel. For how small it is, it works really fast and has a lot of power.
Product buildup is inevitable if you regularly wash or style your hair. I like to use this Detox Shampoo one to two times a week to keep buildup at bay.
Another must-have if you regularly style your hair? A high quality mask. This one increases shine, hydrates dry strands, and repairs damage, making it fully worth the splurge.
