#1. Benefit Porefessional Primer
Tried and true this stuff just works. I have never been a fan of the silicone feeling primers, which is why I always lean towards ones that feel more moisturizing. I find the price point reasonable, the product lasts a long time, and I never break out when using this!
#2. Tatcha Luminous Skin Mist
This boujie brand hit the scene thanks to their luxurious packaging and influencer endorsements over the past couple years and I REALLY tried not to hop on the band wagon. For my dry skin type, a setting spray after make up is an absolute NECESSITY for me as it gives me that fresh dewy glow that I definitely don’t have naturally. This product also locks in your powders, and keeps those products lasting all day. I love this stuff, and a little goes a long way.
I know I know everyone already has one of these… BUT IF YOU DON’T…. stop what you are doing and RUN to your nearest Sephora. This is an absolutely ridiculously over priced little piece of sponge that I just can’t live without. I have tried knock offs, and i’m sorry but it is simply not the same. The key to the most flawless and healthy looking foundation and concealer application is a very moist beauty blender and some patience. Make sure to use this sponge DAMP, because if not you can just say goodbye to expensive product as it will drink it all up. I like to drench mine and squeeze it out several times so it swells up nice and big and then go to town! Don’t waste your money on cheap versions, invest in this product trust me! That being said, I have heard the real techniques one is actually a very good dupe but I havn’t tried it!
ALL HAIL THIS FOUNDATION. There was a ton of hype around this when it first came out as it is known for photographing beautifully, and I LOVE when a product lives up to its rep. This foundation was designed for the film and TV industry to provide a natural, invisible looking foundation on camera. The best part: it does this WITHOUT the cake! This is such a wearable, medium buildable foundation that truly gives you the most beautiful complexion. This foundation is PERFECT for weddings, or any event with flash photography as it does not give you any kick back (those awful pictures where your face looks beaming white). This is my go to everyday foundation and one of my absolute favorite Sephora products!
#5 Georgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Damn you Armani. I REFUSED to pay the price for this talked about foundation, but I finally wanted to give it a try and now I have really put myself in a bad situation because I am HOOKED. This has less coverage to the Make Up Forever, but some how leaves your skin even more flawless. It is so blendable, and just feels so nice on your face. There is nothing else to say but that it is GOOD. The price is high, but if you are someone who uses minimal foundation or wants a really nice product for nights out – this is it!
#6 – Urban Decay Naked Concealer
This was one of my very first loves at Sephora and I am stickin’ with it till the end. I have seen mixed reviews on this, but for me it is light weight and doesn’t crease! I tend to use this one in the summer as it is less coverage then some others, but its perfect for those warmer months!
#7: Nars Creamy Concealer
Love this stuff! Smooth, full coverage, and long lasting – everything you could ever want in a concealer! I have some beef with NARS (no pun intended) due to their choice to start testing on animals after being a notoriously animal friendly brand, and I will likely not re-purchase because of this. I can’t deny the product is good, however I am not really diggin’ what this brand is doing in terms of ethics.
#8 Velour Lashes
I really loved this brand when it was solely sold online, and when they made their debut in Sephora I was super excited! Fluffy, light, and full of drama these lashes never fail to impress. A good lash makes all the difference and these bad boys give you the drama without the plastic looking lashes!
#9 Becca Highlighter in “Opal”
I am totally here for the highlighter trend but I won’t lie… not a fan of the “blinding” look. I like a natural highlight in just the right places and opal gives me that. It also lasts all day which is an added bonus.
#10. Murad Under Eye Treatment
I never ever ever buy into products that claim to give you an “instant” anything, EXCEPT for this. I first tried this in a sample and I was blown away by the results after only one use! Tightens and brightens under eye and helps make up apply flawlessly. Murad is not a cheap brand, but lets be real what at Sephora is?
#11: Tarte Pro Glow Palette
I have been kind of over the palette trend, but this one is full of really great products! The highlights are shimmery yet natural, and the matte bronzer is a dream. This pallette also gives a cream contour shade that is so easy to use and blend! Even if you are new to contouring and highlighting, this pallette will make your dreams come true!
#12 Viktor and Rolf “Flowerbomb”
And is it ever the BOMB. This is my all time fav scent and it is absolutely worth all the hype. It is warm, and girly, and professional, and sweet, and sexy, and PERFECT. I have never been complimented more than I have after wearing this beauty.
#13. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
This one is a winner year after year. When this product first launched it promised you natural looking brows with an easy to control pencil – so pretty much promised the impossible. I don’t know how she did it, but Anastasia came THROUGH with this little baby. This tool is my go to and comes in a ton of shades. Nice brows are the key to a put together make up look.
#14. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Brush:
I also love this tool from Anastasia as I sometimes switch between the brow wiz and the dip brow. This is the most precise brow brush I have ever used! You can create razor sharp lines with this little brush and it holds it shape for a long time!
#15. Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel:
Continuing with the brow theme, this gel is a necessity to keep all your hard brow work locked in place for the day. This stuff is magic for creating a nicely shaped brow (which I don’t have), fake it till you make it baby!
#16. Tarte Drink of H2O Moisturizer:
ok I am going to say it…. this is the best face cream of all time (that I have tried). This cooling gel formula is GENIUS and makes your face feel as if you just had a very expensive facial! My face feels refreshed and soft with this stuff and I have repurchased it several times. This little beauty earns it spot in my favorite Sephora products list, and will likely be there to stay for years to come.
#17 Buxom Plumping Lip Gloss:
This stuff is GOLD. The smell, and the intense cooling sensation are a lip plumping dream without the sting! I don’t find this product to cause any uncomfortable stinging which is common of many others, but gives you a wet, glossy, plump look with the perfect tint! Pink lady and white russian are my favs!
#18 Dior Lipgloss:
Ok don’t have a heart attack when you see the price of this lippy. Dior makes some of the BEST lip products on the market in my opinion, and this product is worth every over priced penny. This lip gloss adjusts to your lip colour and gives you a perfectly unique pink tint as you wear it. It is also super hydrating and glossy and I just j’adore this stuff.
#19. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in “Peachy Nude”:
Really all the colours in this line are beautiful, but I find that the peachy shades give me a more natural blush look. The formula of this product is what really makes it stand out, it is smooth and blends beautifully.
#20. Too Faced Chocolate Soliel Matte Bronzer in “Medium Deep”:
FAV. BRONZER. EVA. Gone are the days of dark muddy looking bronzers since this beauty hit the market. It is subtle, blends flawlessly, and SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE. What else do you want from a product?!
#21: Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette:
This product has been talked about since last year, and I don’t see it going anywhere! I will be honest, since being introduced to the Laura Mercier translucent powder, I don’t tend to use these highlight shades as much, but the bronzers are AMAZE. What I love about this pallette is 1) when you are travelling you can pack this only for your full highlight/contour routine, and 2) you can replace individual pans! Cons to this palette is definitely the packaging – it is hard plastic and if you drop it once on a hard surface say goodbye to your beautifully pressed products because they will shatter (speaking from experience…. RIP).
#22. hourglass Veil Primer:
this stuff is the BOMB. I use this for special occasions, as I do find primers in general cause me to break out when I wear them daily. This creates a beautiful flawless canvas for makeup application and feels so nice on the skin! Although a pricier brand, hourglass delivers a luxury product that justifies the price point. I don’t mind spending money on a product IF it lives up to its promises, which this primer does. Living up to expectations is a one day ticket to my favorite Sephora products list !
#23. Jose Maran Argan Oil:
Face, cuticles, hair, lips, hands, … there is almost no where that I don’t put this stuff. I have repurchased this product time after time and it is still my favorite beauty oil. I like to put this on after I wash my face, or before I do my makeup if I want an ultra dewy look. This keeps me hydrated, and just feels luxurious to use AND it is not overly greasy. I love it!
#24. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder:
This product really should have been #1 as it is my ALL TIME FAV Sephora Product. If you are not new to the beauty blogging community you are probably rolling your eyes as this comes as no surprise to anyone. I stayed away from this product for so long because of the price and the hype as I assumed nothing could be THAT good – I was wrong. Whether you are doing a quick everyday look, or baking your face for a big event this stuff is a MUSTTTTT. Trust me on this one, it is amazing. The powder is lightweight, but it does the job and does it WELL.
So that’s it my friends, my roundup for 2017 BEST Sephora products of the year. Many of these have been with me since the beginning, and will stay till the end because they are that good! Click the images below to get your own! Happy glamming.
