Everything Worth Adding to Your Cart During the Sephora Sale

post featured image

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!

Ranavat Saffron Brightening Dark Spot Treatment

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.

Guerlain Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil

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.

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Magic Cream

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. 

Peter Thomas Roth Vitamin C Power Serum

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.

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

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.

Tatcha Indigo Overnight Repair Serum

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!

Fresh Soy Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser

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.

Clarins Smoothing Day Moisturizer

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.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

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.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

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.

Lancome Absolue Revitalizing Eye Cream

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.


Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb

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.

8-Piece Face & Eye Brush Set

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.

Gucci Concentré de Beauté Concealer

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. 

Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint

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.

Rare Beauty Liquid Blush

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.

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick Balm

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.

Iconic London Blurring Skin Tint

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.

Armani Beauty Eyes To Kill Lengthening Mascara

Choosing a mascara is totally up to personal preference and your lash type, but this one is a go-to that never disappoints.

Tarte Juicy Lip Plump

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!

Pat McGrath Mini Eye Shadow Palette

Another good gift idea? This Eye Shadow Palette, which has a variety of colors that would compliment any skin tone.


Shu Uemura Reset Shampoo & Mask Set

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.

Nutrafol Hair Supplement

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.

Oribe Smoothing Blowout Cream

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.

Kerastase Magic Night Serum

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.

Shu Uemura Nourishing Overnight Hair Serum

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.

T3 Lightweight Travel Size Hair Dryer

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.

Ouai Detox Shampoo

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.

Kerastase Chronologiste Hair Mask

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.
