Sephora is one of those stores you go into thinking you need a new lip gloss but you walk out with the latest Vitamin C serum, coconut primer, & 2349098 lip stick shades.
But like right?
You can’t really leave the store without your hands full- I dare you to try- it doesn’t work. And if you get in line with one product you will for sure get caught with the testers that are like CandyLand before arriving to the cashier. Gets me every time.
Anyway, today I am going to tell you my top 3 Sephora products that are worth it- & worth it for multiple reasons. These are products that I have tested, my friends have tested, & ones that are repeat buys. I love a repeat buy. There’s nothing better than having a go-to, standout star that you tell all your friends about. Am I wrong? I don’t think so.
So the products- what you’re waiting for. I mean that’s what you came here for: the GOODS. Let’s get to it.
This smell is everything you want for summer…& it’s called BLOOM. It’s flirty & perfect & exactly what you want for a summertime scent.
WHAT ELSE? Oh! The bottle. Have you seen THIS BOTTLE? If this isn’t Instagram goals, I don’t know what is. This bottle is special- it’s chic & pink & makes you feel like you’re living in Paris sipping an espresso, reading Hemingway at a local café. Sometimes you want to save perfume bottles…& this is one you SAVE. Like I’m saving mine for my first-born. I display it proudly on my vintage, gothic vanity. The bottle is a star- & I suppose that now when I buy perfume I want a FAB smell but I also want a cute bottle.
ALSO! The feeling. God, the way the treatment lays on the lips. It’s good guys. You will like it. I feel like we know each other at this point & think this is one you’ll want to apply at night but also in the morning. Do you. ( I do this when I REALLY want to keep my lips moisturized & plump- AKA when I have an event or meeting or something festive, like a party ).
On those days, when I am really putting effort into it — swear to God — Michael is all, “YOU LOOK CUTE BABE!” Which is a real hoot, because I actually woke up with prune lips. Anyway, collagen helps smooth fine lines & wrinkles- that’s the point.
I like these, K? THEY’RE NICE ON THE LIPS! Light, but they have staying power which we love. LIKE LOVE, LOVE.
Plain & simple: go for the ‘Champagne rose gold’- it reminds me of lips…but enhanced. The color, I mean. It’s the right shade- very youthful. And then there’s the magical element of a little shimmer, just a little—to keep it flirty & all.
The moral of the story: go into Sephora with a specific list- & make sure these gems are on it. I’m telling you- these are my summer Sephora must-haves. What are yours? Get specific- you know I love specific.
Ok, we are off to go have lox, capers, & red onion-covered bagels at Balthazar in New York.
