The Sephora sale is a great time to stock up on the essentials for skincare and makeup but I also love picking up some products new to me and some splurge products.  I was going to skip out on this sale since I just picked up a couple of things from the recent Family and Friends discount but I received my cashback from Ebates and I always convert them into a Sephora gift card so to maximize my return, here I am placing a bunch of orders again.  If you don’t know about Ebates, it is amazing!  When you sign up using my referral linkhttps://www.ebates.com/r/QZSHEI?eeid=35386, you will receive an extra $10 off your purchase.  It works by accessing Ebates before you shop at Sephora, Ulta, or other partner retailer and you receive a cash back amount quarterly.  The percentage depends on the store and they run double cash back opportunities also.  This is not sponsored by Ebates. I just genuinely use them for every day things for my family and reward myself with Sephora giftcards but you can choose paypal also.  Lets get back on topic with what this post is for!

The following are some picks that I will be picking up and others I recommend.  Let me know what you are picking up and what you think of my picks!


Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette:

The Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette just launched today and I personally am going to pick up the Smokey set but there are 4 options available.  I have not tried any of their eyeshadows and even though these kits are small, the pans are full sized.  They retail for $27 so the price point is great for an introduction to the brand.

Huda Beauty Lip Strobes:

Along with the Obsession Eyeshadow Palettes, Huda Beauty also launched Contour & Strobe Lip Sets.  I have not seen these in person but over Huda’s social media posts, the tin seems to be great for storing products in the future.  They also come up with a full sized Lip Contour, a mini Liquid Matte Lipstick and a mini Lip Strobe in four different versions.  They retail for $25 and seem like a great present for any beauty lover.

Sephora Favorites Kits:

The Sephora Favorites kits already are of great value and add a discount on top of that, it is a great time to pick them up.  There are a variety of mascara, lip products, skincare, makeup, and fragrance sets.  I recently picked up this Scouted By Sephora set during the Friends and Family discount and it is such a steal when you factor in the Drunk Elephant, Herbivore, and Tata Harper products alone.


Trestique Shimmering Nudes Holiday Sets

I got the opportunity to try out Trestique products and speak with their team at Generation Beauty NY.  These products are perfect for someone on the go who is looking for an effortless polished look.  As a mother of 2 young kids, the time I can allot to get ready is usually tight and these multitasking products feel like crayons for growups.  They are easy to apply and blend like a dream.  My favorite way of applying the highlight, Maldives Luminescent, is to warm it up on my finger and then apply it seamlessly to the high points of my face.

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir and Unicorn Essence Minis:

The Farsali products have been “Instagram Famous” for a while now and they have always piqued my interest.  I tried the Rose Gold Elixir and I love how lightweight it is, the scent, and how well it absorbs.  Farsali recently came out with minis for $20 of the Rose Gold Elixir and the Unicorn Essence.  I am planning on picking up the mini of the Unicorn Essence because a little goes a long way with these products and I doubt I will get through a full sized one.

Origins Cleanse, Mask, Hydrate Customizable Set:

Origins makes some of my favorite face masks and this kit comes for the value of their full sized masks but includes one of my favorite cleansers, their Checks and Balances.  I should say that more than mine, it is my husband’s favorite.  Every time I buy it, he basically forgets how to share.

Farmacy Harvest Set:

This Farmacy set is the perfect introduction to the brand as it features three of their best selling products in one.  The price is $45 which is what the the full sized moisturizer included in this set retails for alone.  The set includes a moisturizer, face mask, and a night balm.  Farmacy Beauty products are based off of naturally derived ingredients and as a brand, I have a lot of respect for them.


Hourglass Minis:

Hourglass powders are some of my favorites because of how finely miled they are and the pigmentation isn’t overwhelming for someone less experienced in makeup application.  The powder layers well to build up pigment to the desirable level.  I already own a mini blush in Mood Exposure, ambient powder in Dim Light and I am planning on picking up a bronzer.  While when you do the math the minis are much more expensive than the full sized product based on how much you get, I would never get through a full sized product so the travel version is perfect for me.


Sunday Riley Flash Fix Kit:


I purchased the Flash Fix kit a few weeks ago for the retail price of $28 which is expensive but Good Genes is one expensive product!  I was hoping that I wouldn’t love it but unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you see it, I have been thoroughly enjoying it.  It is really small but it has lasted me quite a while so far.  I always recommend getting minis of skincare products if you can before investing into full sized products to see if it is suitable for your skin type.


Drunk Elephant: The Trunk

Drunk Elephant’s The Trunk set is tailored for someone who a die hard fan of their’s.  With 9 of their highly rated products, this set includes everything you would need for a skincare routine.  Their product line is meant to be used as a system.  The price retails for $425 but is valued at $556.  This is a splurge purchase but with that added discount, it is a great time to pick it up.


The Rouge First Access starts tomorrow, November 3rd to the 6th online and in store using the code 20FORROUGE and again from the 10th to 15th.  What do you think of my picks?  What are you planning on picking up?  I would love to hear from you below!  (The above links are affiliate links)
