Who doesn’t love shopping? I know I do! This past week has been a crazy week of shopping and soaking up rays at the beach. Just trying to enjoy as much summer fun as I can before it’s gone. Sephora was one of my first stops, where I picked up a few of my beauty favourites along with a couple new items I just had to test out. Read on to see what I bought and hear my thoughts on each product!
Here’s what was in my bag!
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Wiz/Dark Brown – This amazing little tool is an ultra-slim, retractable pencil that will help create hair-like strokes to achieve a natural looking brow. It glides on easily and is available in 9 different shades. I chose the Dark Brown shade formerly known as Brunette and it is the perfect match for me. I love that this product comes with a convenient brow brush at the opposite end to help shape your brows. Not only is this product formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates it is also Cruelty Free!
I give this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For tips on how to achieve a natural looking brow click here!
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue – tinted hydrating gel cream – This lightweight airy gel cream goes on smooth, has SPF 30 and provides a radiant buildable sheer to medium coverage that is available in multiple shades. There is sure to be a match for each and everyone of you. I especially like using this kind of product for hot summer days where I can achieve natural to light coverage with SPF protection. This product is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens and is Cruelty Free , I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Benefit POREfessional face primer – This is one of my must have beauty products all year round, it helps reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines and provides a great base underneath any foundation. For a full review click here! The only thing that could make this product better, is if Benefit was Cruelty Free! Although I would still give this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Caudalie Beauty Elixir – This beauty spritzer is great for adding moisture during the day and has a refreshing scent . This product has been a part of my everyday beauty routine for the last 15 months and you can always find it in my beach bag. Check out my review of this must have item here! This product is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Fresh Age-Delay Essentials For Face & Lips – My limited-edition 500 point Beauty Insider reward. I am so happy to have had the chance to scoop up this set before it was gone. Said to improve signs of aging with antioxidant-rich black tea, I look forward to trying out these new products and will let you know my thoughts in the weeks to come.

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme – I had a chance to snag a trial size of this rich and creamy concealer and loved it. It blends easily and provides great coverage and comes in multiple shades for different skin tones. I loved the lasting wear this concealer provided, after a day at the beach everything still seemed to be in place with no visible crease marks. This product is formulated WITHOUT: Parbens, Sulfates, or Phthalates and is Cruelty Free! I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder – This is currently my go-to setting powder. This luxurious powder is light, silky, and applies effortlessly . Leaving A matte finish and a hint of coverage this product works with almost every skin tone. I only give this product ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ although it is a great product I prefer products that are Cruelty Free and there are a few other setting powders on the market that I have tried that are just as great but more affordable!
Murad Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15 – This shine-reducing moisturizer creates an immediate matte surface and can control oil for up to 8 hours. With ingredients that help control oil, your face will stay shine free and moisturized all while be protected from the suns harmful rays. I have found this product to be very effective in reducing shine throughout the day, a small amount goes a long way . The only thing I feel could be improved is the consistency , the texture of the product is similar to that of tacky white glue. This product is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates and its Cruelty Free! I rate it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders – This trio of perfection has your skin covered. This brand is my go to skincare line for all needs, but these three are definitely must haves in my beauty routine. Sheer Transformation is my daily moisturizer and the other two gems provide replenishing nutrients to your skin am and pm in the form of a light and refreshing gel serum. For full reviews on all 3 products click here! These products are not only formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates they are Cruelty Free! Included in this set: 1 oz Truth Serum Collagen Booster, 1 oz Sheer Transformation, 1 oz Invigorating Night Treatment – I give all three ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Too Faced Lip Injection glossy in Milkshake – This is by far one of my fav lippies this summer, the neutral shade is slightly hued yet perfectly sheer, offering great shine it looks good alone or layered over your favorite shade of lipstick. Beware the tingle, ingredients in this product create an intense tingle to help plump your pout, I don’t mind it but it’s not for everyone. I give this lippie ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates and is Cruelty and Gluten free! You can check out a review of another one of my fav lip glosses here!
