Sephora Sale Recommendations, 2019


sephora sale recommendations

Tis the season to be shopping

Foreword

For this post I have selected my top five high-end products, that I think you guys really need to get your mitts on during this month's Sephora Sale (whether you look for a holiday gift or something special for yourself, you do you boo!). So without further ado - if you are curious to know more, then please keep on scrolling!

#1 Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick

If you are a friend to the blog (welcome back!) or Instagram, then you already know just how much I love my Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipsticks (40 USD; Made in Italy).

This was one of the first products that Pat came out with, quickly becoming the number one reason why I fell in love with the brand. Although I only own a few, I treasure and look after mine similarly to how Cerberus guards the gates of the Underworld. These are easily the BEST classic bullet mattes you will find at Sephora.

What's so special about MatteTrance? It is a one swipe magic, 100% opaque and non-drying satin-matte formula that is incredibly long-wearing and easy to apply. It feels like a cloud on the lips and currently comes in more than 30 modern and timeless shades created by Mother Pat.

The one you see me wearing on the image here is called Full Blooded and it is the most stunning deep wine color you could ever think of. I would also recommend shades: 1995, Full Panic, Obsessed!, Elson and Christy.

Still unsure where to start? Try the brand's LUST: Mini MatteTrance Lipstick Trios (currently available in nude and red shades) for less than 25 USD while the sale is on. Stocking stuffers never looked this luxe!

#2 Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

While it is a relatively new addition to my ever-growing makeup collection, Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter (44 USD; Made in Italy) is here to stay. Forever.

I hear you ask "What's so special about it?". Well, if you have ever wanted to look like a real-life FaceTune filter, this product is for you. It hydrates, adds a minimal amount of coverage, blurs pores and mimics the most glorious faux-orgasm glow you could ever imagine (pardon my ... ahem French).

While this description might not sound that alluring for oilier skin types, if you are normal or dry and always wanted that three-in-one primer to layer underneath your foundation - please meet your match.

You can also use Hollywood Flawless Filter in place of or underneath your powder highlighters; I love this technique because it creates the most believable glow of life (and it never accentuates texture).

Always in a hurry? Pop a bit of this product to the high-points of your face, add concealer, mascara and you're ready to conquer the World. Available in seven undertones, from Fair to Dark.
