The Sephora sale is once again upon us and I’m here to give you a full list of recommendations. I know I’m a little late but let’s not act like you guys aren’t still shopping. This list covers everything from fragrance to skincare and makeup. I excluded hair from the list simply because I don’t have any hair care products from Sephora that I actually like. With that being said, this post is not sponsored by Sephora and the links are not affiliate links. Every year on some social media platform I post a list of my favorite products from my favorite makeup store. I love reading and watching other people’s lists for new things to try out, and I hope you’ll find some new favorites from mine too.
