Sephora Sale Picks + What I’m Buying

Sephora Sale Picks I wit & whimsy

Sephora is back with one of their few sales of the year and it is a great time to stock up on your favorites at a discounted price or splurge on something you’ve been dying to try. If you’re a VIB member, the sale will score you 15% off your purchase, Rouge level get 20% off and all members of the Insider program (free to sign up) will score 10% off. The sale is currently open to Rouge and VIB levels and will soon open to the rest of the Insiders as well.

I’ve rounded up all my favorite beauty products sold at Sephora below – with a focus on clean products as that’s my new personal priority. This sale only happens twice a year so it is worth taking advantage of. Hope you get something you’re excited about!



    • Two of my Wander Beauty favorites are the Baggage Claim Eye Masks and Hidden Glow (this is my go-to primer most days!)
    • I bought these Tan Luxe tanning drops last summer after seeing positive reviews on Instagram and I have to say it is a summer beauty favorite now. From the same brand, this is my go-to tanning body lotion. I couldn’t believe how well it worked on my fair skin. I had largely given up on tanning products (too streaky/too smelly/too bothersome!) but this one made me a believer again.


    • My beloved Erborian BB Creme. This is one of my most DM’d about products – I always get the nicest rave reviews from you guys after purchase and try. My shade of Clair has been out of stock for the past few weeks but is finally back! I can’t quit this stuff and love it so much I dedicated a whole blog post about it. Also a little goes a long way – I wear this nearly every day and I still haven’t finished my tube I got last Spring! The brand’s CC Cream, Glow Cream and Color Correcting Cream are also great. I’ve seriously liked everything I’ve tried from this under the radar brand.
    • When it comes to more coverage though, I always opt to wear the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. It has a cult following for good reason. Your skin instantly looks better and more radiant. I just bought my third bottle of it. I wear shade 4.5. This is the foundation I always wear when I shoot.
    • I hoard highlighters (it is a problem!) but I always come back to (and travel with the mini size) of this Becca one in Champagne Pop. I also have Opal which is equally as pretty.
    • Also from Becca – I really, really love the wear and finish of this lipstick. I have the shade Petal and always get questions about it on Stories when I wear it. It is the perfect pink-y nude.
    • You guys have heard me rave about the beauty of a makeup setting spray before and if you don’t yet use one, you won’t regret buying this one. I’ve been using my last bottle for the past two years regularly and am only just finishing it – it is worth the price and is a game changer during summer when things get hot and humid.
    • No other eyeliner has ever come close to replacing my Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner. It is full proof when applied with this brush and it stays on forever. No smudging or smearing like other eyeliners. Believe me when I say this stuff is long-wear.
    • This NARS concealer is the best I’ve tried and you’ll also often spot it being raved about by makeup artists and YouTuber pros. It’s that good. It’s super easy to apply and incredibly matte which is why I think I love it so much. No greasy finish like other more-oil based concealers I’ve tried. I use the shade Creme Brulee.
    • This Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo is the brow product I use to fill in my brows and make them look more full.
    • If you love having WOW looking eyelashes like me, I highly recommend this Givenchy eyelash primer. I don’t remember to use it that often but every time I do I am like “I really need to use this more!”
    • This Bobbi Brown corrector is god’s gift to blemishes and dark circles. It does wonders. My shade is Porcelain Bisque. I’ve gone through at least 2 or 3 of these and have been using this product for more than 5 years.
    • This Blemish setting powder is amazing. It truly blurs imperfections and because it has blemish fighting properties in the formula you’re concealing and treating all at once.
    • When I remember to, I wear this Clinique Brown mascara on my lower lashes to avoid the dreaded black smudge and have a softer eye look. I learned this trick from a lot of makeup artists and YouTube videos.


What I’m Buying from the Sale:

On my personal beauty wish list right now from Sephora? This Dr. Barbara Sturm cream I’ve used before in a sample size and loved, these Glow Drops also by Dr. Barbara Sturm, these CBD bath salts, this glow serum by Farmacy, this Supergoop eye cream that has Zinc and promises to brighten (love the idea of better protecting the delicate under eye area), this set so I can try out the Biossance brand that I’ve heard such good things about, this hair treatment to help some hair damage I’ve been seeing and this Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask that is an old favorite of mine that I no longer have. What I actually purchased though? Another mini Summer Fridays Jet Lag mask, the Farmacy glow serum, a replenishment of my favorite foundation for more coverage (I wear it whenever I shoot photos), a refill of my favorite brow product, this Supergoop eye cream and  this Briogio hair treatment given my hair could use some TLC while we are in quarantine.

. . .

What did you end up buying from the sale? I’d love to hear! And be sure to check out my Instagram this week as I’ll be doing IGTV videos about my Sephora favorites so you can see and hear about them in action.

  1. Love all your clean beauty picks. I’ve been slowly on a mission to switch to clean beauty. I will have to check all of your picks out – especially the Caudalie SOS cream! I’ve transitioned to pretty much all Biossance products – I love them (I hope you do too!)
