The Sephora Beauty Insider Holiday Sale officially kicked off last week and it’s the perfect time to save on beauty gift sets and anything else you might need for the winter and holiday season. Just like in previous years, the discount you’re eligible for and when you can shop is dependent on your Beauty Insider tier status. Rouge members get 20% off and can start shopping now, VIB members can save 15% off starting tomorrow, and Insider members can save 10% off on November 5. You just need to apply the promo code HOLIDAYFUN during checkout. The sale ends for everyone on November 9, but don’t wait because the most popular items always go so fast. Keep scrolling for my essential beauty buys worth picking up!
I wear different variations of nude lipsticks everyday and my latest obession has been the YSL Slim Glow Matte Lipstick. The entire line is focused on nudes for every skin tone, and I found several shades to be flattering on me. It’s so hydrating yet matte, which makes it great for the colder months. I sometimes like to switch up nude lips for a bold color for the holidays. For that, I recommend this Gucci matte red lipstick. It’s so pigmented and luxurious.
As far as makeup goes, I typically stick to my favorite brands like Charlotte Tilbury and Giorgio Armani. However, I just got a hold of this new Clinique concealer and can’t recommend it enough. It’s great if you prefer a lightweight formula that erases and brightens at the same time. It also doesn’t cake up, which is perfect if your under eye area tends to be more dry.
Skin & Body Care
Minnesota winters are extra harsh, so a good exfoliator, ultra hydrating cream and oils are essential. Since the wintry weather lasts forever here, I also stock up on my favorite self-tanners to keep my skin bronze and healthy looking.
Haircare is such an important part of my beauty routine especially since I color my hair often and style it daily. You guys know I swear by this Olaplex product and this blow dry primer. I always buy backups of them when I can get them on sale. I also love T3 styling tools, which can be pricey buying at full retail price. I always recommend grabbing them during the Sephora sales because the prices can’t be beat.
The holiday gift sets are always one of the most exciting parts of the Sephora Beauty Insider Holiday Sale. Stock up on them now so you can give them as stocking stuffers and Christmas gifts later. This eyeliner and mascara set combines two of my favorite products in one, and it’s super affordable.
