LANEIGE | Lip Sleeping Mask
Such a great lip mask. I started using this during my cancer recovery and am still using it to this day. I think it's a great leave-on mask that soothes your lips, giving you supple smooth skin. I will buy this until I die.
I have: Original

SMASHBOX | Photo Finish Primerizer
This is an amazing hydrating and cooling primer for dry skin. I always use this before I put on my make-up and even sometimes when I don't wear anything. It's a moisturizer and primer built into one perfect bottle of hydrating goodness.

TARTE | Coloured Clay CC Undereye Corrector
One of the first undereye things I ever purchased and it does as it's promised: colour correcting those dark/blueish undereye bags. Fuller coverage, creamy, and dewy.
I have shade: Light/Medium

FiIRST AID BEAUTY | Hello FAB Bendy Avocado Concealer
LOVE - the perfect colour match and literally feels like skin. It doesn't dry out my skin at all and it has a buildable coverage for those of you who want that look. It doesn't settle into fine lines and feels weightless.
I have shade: 02 Fair

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE | Superfood Antioxidant Cleaner
I got this sample and fell in love; the cleanseR duo is made with kale, spinach and green tea. I love the way this cleanser smells, and it feels so nourishing on the skin. The consistency is a thicker gel and it feels like it really is cleaning your skin from your daily woes. Good for all skin types, gentle, green, and cruelty-free!

BRIOGEO| Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Micro-exfoliating Shampoo
I picked this up a few months ago on a whim (after watching Allana Davison). A cooling and refreshing treatment that exfoliates and detoxifies your hair and scalp. I use it once a week or every 2 weeks.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS | Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette
The PERFECT everyday & glam eyeshadow palette. You need this in your life.
There is nothing else to say.

ILIA | True Skin Serum Foundation
I use this every day (mixed with my MAC Strobe Cream). It's a medium foundation, but mixing it sheers it out, which I prefer. It is NOT a matte foundation, it gives a nice dewy glow to the skin. It's also great for dry skin since its ingredient base is Aloe Leaf Extract and Jojoba Oil.
I have shade: Formentera

HOURGLASS | Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick
A wholesome, lovely, dewy glow that makes me feel like a fucking goddess. Long wearing, blends easily into skin with fingers, and the stick applicator makes it easy to glide on and travel with. A win/win.
I have shade: Champagne Flash

STILA | Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow
Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE glitter. This liquid eyeshadow is 100% long lasting and just adds another level to any make-up look. The bottle is really pretty and the glitter is smooth with little fallout. The colour choices are endless, and offer so many opportunities for fun themed looks - my fave is disco fever...basically my #1. going out look lol.
I have shade: Wanderlust & Smouldering Satin

NUDESTIXS | Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze
I really dig this brand because many of their products are multi-use. I use this blush to create a monochromatic look by applying it on my eyes, cheeks and lip. The sticks are excellent for travellers and once applied to the skin, stay in place all day. Super easy to blend out + colours are very pigmented and soft. A 10/10.
I have shade: In The Nude & Sunkissed

BECCA | Skin Love Glaze Stick
A sheer highlighting balm that I like to rub all over my face. No joke. This little stick is perfect for creating a dewy glossy look. If you like a sheer wet look, then this is your new best friend.

CHLOE | Nomade Eau de Parfum
The only perfume I wear. I got this baby on my way to New York back in November and I just love it so much. It's floral and musky and works in all seasons but especially Fall; according to Sephora, it is a free-spirited confident scent that asserts who 'she' basically me :)

I will definitely be picking some of these up in the Sephora VIB Sale, what are some things that you love from Sephora? A full Holy Grail Make-Up post is in the works so stay tuned!
