Sephora Spring Sale Must Haves + Discount Codes!
Save for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, the Sephora Beauty Insider Bonus Event one of my favorite sales of the year! I love to stock up on items that rarely go on sale and makeup can get expensive really quickly. Every time Sephora does a bonus event I like to stock up mainly on my tried and true favorites but I’ll also add a couple items that I’ve had my eye on, sale time is a good time to try new things that you normally wouldn’t spend full price on! Here’s my post from the last Sephora bonus event.
First make sure you’re signed up for the Sephora rewards program here. The sale is tiered so the more you spend the higher level you are and the better discount you get during these events.

My Sephora Favorites
I keep coming back to this concealer despite the price. I love it for coverage and brightening. It has a slightly sticky formula which allows it to apply very opaque and cover even the most stubborn under eye circles! It comes in 2 tones, I use the lighter one!
I’ve talked about this stuff for the past year ALL THE TIME. I’m sure you know all about why I love it by now, but it has proven huge changes in my skin since I started using it! It’s pretty full coverage for a CC cream, but it still feels lightweight. I use the color “Light!”
I love this foundation for days that I need something a little heartier than a CC cream, it goes on so smoothly and blends really well. It also builds really well and comes in a huge range of colors. I use “Almond” which is fair with golden undertones.
I don’t even know how many years this has been a favorite of mine for, but I always grab one whenever it’s included in a sale because I use this product daily! In my last Sephora sale post I tried out the Becca setting powder and didn’t realize how much I didn’t like it until I went back to my trusty Laura Mercier setting powder. The difference is like night and day! This stuff isn’t heavy or cakey at all. I’ve also been using lately it to set my eyelids before applying eyeshadow, and my under eye area!
You’ll need a brush to apply this product but I find it works better than any other eyebrow product I’ve tried! Here’s the brush I use, it’s super affordable and has a built in eyebrow spooly which I absolutely love! I also feel like I have more precision with a pomade than with a pencil, which seems counterintuitive but I can control the amount of product I use as well as exactly where it goes with a brush, plus this product has the perfect shade for my brows! I use the color “Blonde.”
This is hands down, by far the BEST liquid liner I’ve ever used, and if you know me, you know I’ve had winged liner on since the second I started wearing makeup. It’s my trademark look! I recently tried the new angled brush version of this stuff and I have to say I think I like the regular brush option better. I use the black color called “Trooper.”
This is one of those products that no one knows about, I’ve never heard anyone talk about it but I randomly got a sample of it once and have been hooked ever since. Best mascara ever! I don’t love lash extensions, but I love the look of them! This mascara is the best at mimicking that separated, but thick look that lash extensions provide. Of course it won’t be the same, but I’ve found that this is the closest I’ve gotten to achieving the look and feel of extensions without actually having the real things!
The best matte bronzer with no shimmer. Plus it smells like chocolate, they actually use cocoa in the product! Perfect for contouring and a little goes a long way so it lasts forever! I use the color “Chocolate Soleil.”
I’ve used this blush since 2008 and it’s my holy grail! It’s almost like a highlight and blush in one because of the subtle shimmer. It really adds that sun kissed look to the apples of your cheeks! I found out the hard way that you have to use it sparingly as to not look like a clown because it’s pretty pigmented. The color I am loyal to is called “Orgasm”, it is a peachy pink with a little shimmer, perfect for summer!
I honestly feel a little silly for including this in here but then I realized that not everyone understands why they need to spend $20 on this face sponge. This tool applies liquid or powder products flawlessly and is the perfect density once dampened to “bounce” product into the skin, leaving no trace of the applicator unlike traditional brushes which can leave brush strokes. When dampened it doubles in size and absorbs minimal product unlike competitor sponges that you may use dry. I’m not going to lie, it is always hard for me to shell out the cash for this sponge, but when I go back to using other, cheaper tools I end up running back to the beauty blender every time. They last a long time too, so cost per use is actually pretty low! Just make sure you take care of it and wash between each use.
New to me Products
When it comes to products that I’ve never tried before, I’m picking up a couple that I can’t wait to review for you guys! The Becca Backlight Primer, I’ve heard from people is like an Instagram filter for your face! I can’t wait to see if it does what I hope/expect because it sounds amazing. The Drunk Elephant Sukari Babyfacial is another product I’ve heard a ton of people rave about but I haven’t been interested in splurging since I don’t know what to expect. I’ll share my thoughts on my Instagram stories after I’ve used them for a bit!
Thanks for reading! What are you picking up from the sale?
