My Favorites


Best of Sephora - Base (4)




Best of Sephora - Cheeks (1)




Best of Sephora - Eyes (1)




  • Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon: Reviewed here, these are so incredibly creamy and pigmented, and they last up to 10 freakin’ hours! My favorite shades are Tatin and Gavi (sadly no longer available, I think).
  • NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: These don’t last as long as the Bite Beauty ones but they’re a tad more comfortable on the lips. They really hug the lips and the color selection is incredible. I swear by Dolce Vita! NARS Audacious Lipsticks are also amazing, they’re on the creamier side and don’t last as long, but just as beautiful!
  • Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss: My favorite line of lipglosses in Sephora! Smooth and not too goopy or uncomfortable on the lips. They’re not as expensive as the Marc Jacobs ones too.
  • Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lipstick: While everyone is busy raving about the Melted lippies, I’m here raving about this creamy, intensely pigmented lipsticks. These have amazing weartime, color intensity and color selection. Very comfy for people with dry, chapped lips too!



These are all of my holy grail, most-loved and ride-or-die products that can be purchased from Sephora and I hope I haven’t left anything out!

  • Great post! Loved the products you mentioned x
    Do you prefer the Too Faced chocolate bar palette or the Tartelette palette? I’ve been eyeing both but I’m not sure which one to get!

    • Oh nooo that’s a hard one haha. I guess the one unique thing about the chocolate bar palette is that it smells like chocolate! but for travelling, the tartelette packaging is much thinner and thus easier to travel with. texture and consistency-wise, they’re both very similar so I think it just depends on the variety of colors you’d like to have in the palette! 🙂
