Happy Monday Friend! I Hope you had a wonderful + safe Halloween weekend! I had a pretty relaxed weekend, as I prefer them to be ha! It’s cold here so I’m okay with staying in + working on Sparkle, sorting through my belongings and making my space as inspirational + calming as I can make it.

I love this sale because its a great time to stock up on my favorites, pull the trigger on those more expensive products, and to try products at a discounted price. I’m going to break this post into 3 parts:
- My tried + true faves- products I have, love + bought over + over
- What’s in my cart- what I’m actually getting
- My wishlist- what I want, but not necessarily a need or a priority
So let’s jump into it shall we?
My Tired + True Faves:
#1. FARSÁLI Rose Gold 24K Skin Mist- I love this product! I believe this is my 4th bottle of it. I didn’t think I would like it as much as I do to be honest. I must admit- MAC’s Fix+ spray was my favorite for years. I used it to set my face and to intensify my eye shadows or highlighter. I really didn’t think I’d find one that I like better. But here we are ha! This is a clean product, that smells good and is good for a lot of things. You can use it before you start your skin care/ beauty routine or whenever you need some some extra hydration, you can use it to set your face and use it to intensify eyeshadows, blushes and highlighters. I love how it just melts into the skin when I set my whole face with it. I can’t recommend this enough!
#2.Tatcha Lip Mask- This is the best lip gloss/mask I’ve tried! I wear it as a lip gloss and then at night and when my lips are dry I use it as a lip mask. It gives your lips the shiny wet look but the best part is it is not sticky at all. I don’t know how they did it but its great. It’s another clean product made with ingredients that will smooth, hydrate and soften your lips. I highly recommend if you need a lip product that is multipurpose.
#3. LAWLESS Woke Up Like This Flawless Finish Foundation- [Shade: Sonoran] I have been using this foundation ever since it came out and LOVE it. It is clean, full coverage, and has a dewy finish. For me personally, I don’t need a lot but it is buildable so you can use as much or as little as you want. You can also mix it in with your moisturizer, sun screen etc. I also really like that there is a wide arrange of shades to choose from for the difference seasons when you’re tanner or lighter.
#4. Supergoop! Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45– [Shade: Medium] This is another product I’ve been using for a long time and love it! I like that it another clean product and an SPF in powder form so touch ups are easy and don’t mess up my make up when I’m out and about. I went to St.Thomas and St. John in the Caribbean and used this product [with some other products] while snorkeling and exploring the islands and didn’t get sunburn on my face and it set my foundation really well. I dump it out into another container and use my Chanel Petite Kabuki Brush and it works great.
#5. IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo- I love this Dry Shampoo! I have unfortunately oily hair and usually have to wash my hair every day to get it clean but I know thats not great for your hair. I have tried SO. MANY dry shampoo and this is the BEST one I’ve found! It works so well + smells amazing! It also gives me volume at my crown and that is hard to do since my hair is so long. I love all the products I’ve tried from this brand and I highly recommend it! PRO TIP: Apply to your hair at night and wake up with clean fresh hair in the morning!
#6. Tom Ford Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss- This is for sure a splurge item and I know its not a cruelty free brand but when I saw it on Emily Ann Gemma I had to have it. I love it! It looks good on alone or on top of a lip stick. It’s not sticky which I appreciate it + smells really good. The packaging is also so pretty and heavy. It feels very luxurious.
#7. LAWLESS Make Me Blush Talc-Free Velvet Blush- It’s no secret I LOVE the products Lawless makes! This blush is so pigmented and vibrant like a high end brand, but it is safe to use as it is a clean product. I have Angel Suede + Sakura and mix them together for the perfect pink/peachy shade and a healthy flush look. I like that the packaging has a mirror and a magnetic close. It feels good sturdy which I like when applying.
#8. Wishful Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub- This exfoliator is super gentle on your skin but very effective. It is a clean product [as per Sephora] with a lot of amazing ingredients for your skin like Pineapple enzyme, papaya enzyme, AHA, and BHA. It smells really good and really works. I apply it in the shower after I cleanse my face and my skin feels and looks great after each time I use it. I use it about 3 times a week.
What’s in my Cart:
#1. BeautyBio GloPRO® Microneedling Facial Regeneration Tool- I’ve heard so many good things about this product and am finally pulling the trigger on it! The sale is the perfect time. My skin has a mind of its own. One month its great, next day its worse than when I was 15. I have cystic acne mostly because of hormones and each breakout left an awesome reminder of its stay on my face, in the way of scars. I’m hoping this tool will help me clear up the texture and scars and help the integrity of my skin as a whole. I know it’s expensive but I feel like my skin is worth it. It’s like an investment for my skin but my skin is worth it.
#2. Nécessaire The Deodorant- [Scent: Sandalwood] This is my second tube of this scent and I tried the eucalyptus scent one. I like the Sandalwood one better and love that its a clean brand with good ingredients since they are getting absorbed into my body. I’ve tired a lot of the natural deodorants and this is my favorite. It’s not as good as my non clean ones I used in the past but I am happy with the results.
#3. Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector– I have heard so many good things about this product + product line that I am finally trying it. My hair can use some seriously TLC + moisture. I’m hoping it will help my poor hair come back to life + it’s health!
#4. Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette- I have had my eye on this palette since it came out. I didn’t purchase it then but I can’t stop thinking about it, and all the shimmer colors with matching matte colors is a brilliant way to set up an eye shadow palette. It’s neutral and I can see a lot of looks I can make with it. I also have a thing for eye shadow palettes ha! I’m still working on the less is more theory with this, but ya know, baby steps ha!
#5. Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask- I’ve gone through 4 jars of this prodcut and need to stock up!
My Wish List:
#1.Viseart Petite Pro 4 Apricotine– I have had my eye on this palette for a while now. It has such beautiful neutral + sparkly shades! I feel like it’s a nice compact size, great for travel or leave in your handbag for touch ups. The brand has a lot of color options too which I think its really cool so there’s something for everyone.
#2. TOM FORD Soleil Neige Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette- This palette looks beautiful + the packing is stunning. I’m a sucker for a pretty product with a pretty package! It is a surge but I feel like some brands are worth it, and Tom Ford is one of those brands. This is the only color combination that the white + gold packing comes in, but there are 15 other color combinations that come in black + gold packaging. I might snag one of those as well 🤦🏻♀️
#3. BeautyBio Contouring + De-Puffing Rose Quartz Roller- I bought a Rose Quartz roller and loved using it but it broke and I got out of the habit of using it. I know this one is a splurge but I feel like it is a good sturdy one and won’t break so I’ll have it for years. Plus it’s an investment and my skin is worth it.
f#4. Chloé Love Story– This is my favorite perfume! I wear it all the time when I go out, I even have the roller ball version in my handbag for touchups if I need them. It seems high end, luxurious, amazing! Even my brother likes it ha! Since I’m not really going out I’m not using it as much so it’s not high on my list ya know?
#5. T3 SinglePass X 1.5” Ionic Flat Iron with Ceramic Plates (White & Rose Gold)– I really am not a hair person, I’m more of a make up + skin care girl. When it comes to my hair I’m pretty plain Jane about it and just straighten it, or if I’m feeling adventurous I’ll use my 3 barrel crimper and curl my hair that way. I’ve heard good things about the brand T3 and like using Ceramic plated straighteners. I also thing the white + rose gold packing is beautiful. It’s on my wishlist because lately I’ve just been throwing my hair in a messy bun on top of my head and my straightener works fine right now. When I need a new straightener, I’ll pull the trigger on this one.
And thats it! If I find more products I’ll keep adding it to the list. What are some of your favorite Sephora Picks? Leave them in the comments below!
