Sephora Gifts for All Event Skin-Care Deals
Tweak your skin-care routine to address all the concerns you may have during this transitional (and temperamental, in terms of weather) season. Considering that you can tackle everything from dryness to hyperpigmentation with the help of new and classic products, this sale couldn’t come at a better time. Whether it’s trying out an exfoliating toner that’ll deep-clean your pores or testing an Allure Readers’ Choice-winning cleanser, Sephora’s got you covered.
Ask any Allure editor what their favorite products for fine lines and sagging are, and chances are the NuFace Trinity Set will come up. This microcurrent-powered device stimulates muscles to temporarily lift, sculpt, and define the look of your facial contours.
Another device we’re adding to cart is the HigherDose Red Light Face Mask. This flexible mask is powered by LED red lights that stimulate collagen production, reduce inflammation, and increase blood circulation all at once.
You know a serum like the Clarins Double Serum Light Texture is good when it’s an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner. This lightweight iteration of the brand’s original serum contains the same moisturizing blend of squalane and glycerin with a more fluid-like texture for effortless absorption.
As its name suggests, Tatcha’s The Dewy Skin Cream will create a plump, glowing complexion through a fusion of skin-enhancing ingredients like hydrating hyaluronic acid and free-radical-fighting antioxidants derived from algae.
Trust us, the Charlotte Tilbury Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum is truly an eye-opening formula. Like your favorite latte, it’s infused with caffeine to stimulate circulation and reduce inflammation. This lightweight serum also contains Swiss ice wine made with antioxidant-rich frozen grapes to moisturize and firm delicate undereyes.
Dull, uneven skin will love all the benefits that Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner has to offer, considering that it contains exfoliating polyhydroxy and beta hydroxy acids as well as hydrating hyaluronic acid.
Sephora Gifts for All Event Makeup Deals
Many of us are now back to our offices and IRL workplace situations, so it’s time to show off all of the makeup skills we learned while working from home. And if there’s one thing the pandemic taught us, it’s to chill — well, at least with our beauty routines. The “no makeup”-makeup trend has undergone a major revival, and the minimalist trend seems to be staying around. Expect to see more lightweight foundations and creamy, multipurpose blushes in stores and possibly in your own stash.
The Haus Labs Triclone Skin Tech Foundation took over just about every face on TikTok for its buildable, medium-finish coverage and satin-like, second-skin effect. Each of this long-wear foundation’s 51 shades is spiked with arnica to minimize redness and irritation.
The beauty of Milk Makeup’s Sculpt Cream Contour Stick is that, unlike its competitors, each shade has a matte, cool-toned finish that mimics your natural shadows — no wonder it won an Allure Best of Beauty Award.
Commerce editor Sarah Han loves the Refy Gloss Highlighter for its easy-to-use, nonsticky formula. It can be used as an illuminator on the high points of the face or as a glowy primer. Either way, you’re gonna love the glass-like glow the golden Topaz hue imparts.
The Allure Readers’ Choice-nominated Soft Pink Liquid Blush from Rare Beauty comes in 10 satin- and matte-finish shades to create a subtle flush that defines your cheeks.
Ilia’s Best of Beauty Award-winning Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 hits the nail on the head when it comes to lightweight coverage, plus it treats your complexion with hydrating hyaluronic acid.
“Leave it to Mario Dedivanovic to create the perfect lip liner,” says Allure market shopping editor Angela Trakoshis. The dual-ended Makeup By Mario Ultra Suede Sculpting Lip Pencil comes in 19 versatile shades with a brush on one end to blend and blur pigment.
Chisel your cheekbones, jawline, and nose with one of Fenty Beauty’s Match Stix Matte Contour Skinsticks in seven versatile colors.
Makeup artist Courtney Hart recommends Lancôme’s Ultra Wear All Over Full Coverage Concealer: “It’s full-coverage and also helps boost skin’s hydration,” says Hart, referring to the formula’s calming and moisture-retaining rose and water lily extracts. The wand has a wide, flat surface to cover up hyperpigmentation and redness and a pointed tip for easy, precise application to the undereye area. This concealer (available in 20 shades) won a 2022 Best of Beauty Award for its ability to sneakily cover dark circles without drawing attention to itself.
Sephora Gifts for All Event Hair-Care Deals
Sephora’s got just about every hair elixir, mask, and tonic you’re looking for, no matter if you’re trying to address frizz, scalp concerns, or anything in between. Yes, you can always restock tried-and-true favorites, but why not experiment with something new? Sephora’s fully stocked with new and exciting products like currently trending bond repair masks and, of course, the Dyson Airwrap (which will probably sell out very quickly).
In 2023 alone, the Shark FlexStyle Hair Dryer & Multi-Styler nabbed Allure Best of Beauty and Readers’ Choice Awards for its innovative design, under-$500 price tag, and styling versatility. The beauty of this tool is its neck, which can be positioned vertically or horizontally to make your styling experience a total breeze. This device also features five interchangeable attachment heads for smoothing and polishing strands, including two curling barrels, a round brush, diffuser, and smoothing nozzle.
The Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil is an Allure Best of Beauty Award MVP for its lightweight formula and ultra-moisturizing effects. As its name suggests, the main ingredient in this formula is honey, which is known for its shine-boosting and conditioning properties.
Bond-repairing hair products have grown a large beauty fanbase for their ability to repair disulfide bonds. In layman’s terms, they help reverse or mitigate hair damage caused by bleaching, coloring, and heated hair tools. Olaplex No. 3 Hair Repair Perfector is one of the most popular bond-repairing treatments for the intensive formula that enhances color, shine, and strength.
K18’s Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-in Molecular Repair Hair Mask is another trending choice that, similar to Olaplex, utilizes amino acid chains to repair disulfide bonds, making hair smoother and less breakable.
If washing your hair isn’t on the agenda today, spritz some of Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo, a lightweight refresher that’ll absorb oil and sweat without leaving any residue behind.
Something that should be crunchy and flaky: a granola bar. Something that definitely shouldn’t be: your curls. Unlike hair gels of the past, Bread Beauty Supply Hair Gel tames frizz without making its presence known.
Verb Ghost Weightless Hair Oil is another moisture-replenishing hair oil that’ll treat frizz, flyaways, and brittleness with the help of lightweight argan oil. Amika’s The Wizard Detangling Hair Primer, meanwhile, is a multitasking dream product that detangles, moisturizes, and protects hair from temperatures of styling tools up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Sephora Gifts for All Event Fragrance Deals
Here’s a shopping hack: Some of the most expensive items at Sephora are fragrances, so use your discount wisely and grab a new luxury perfume at a lower price. Though they can still be a bit pricey even with the discount, many never go on sale, so this may be one of the few chances to nab them for a lot less.
Floral fragrances come and go, but the Valentino Donna Born In Roma fragrance is a mainstay in our scent collections. It’s a warmer take on the usual aromatic bouquet, thanks to its fusion of jasmine and bourbon vanilla.
Your home deserves a luxe fragrance addition, so treat your space with Maison Margiela’s Replica By The Fireplace Diffuser. This warm, spicy diffuser set fills your home with seasonal-friendly notes of clove, chestnut, and vanilla, plus its sleek design is a worthy piece of home decor for your home, too.
Orange flower and sea salt might not sound like a match made in heaven, but this combination makes a delightful appearance in Phlur’s Solar Power Eau de Parfum. Allure senior editor Jesa Marie Calaor says this Best of Beauty winner is in her fragrance rotation for its ability to blend with your body chemistry for a pleasantly musky, fruity scent.
You can also grab Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum, an intoxicatingly warm and spicy fragrance that’s won both Allure Best of Beauty and Readers’ Choice Awards.
There’s literally no need to reinvent the wheel, but isn’t it fun when someone does? Ellis Brooklyn’s Florist is a spring floral (groundbreaking, we know) featuring some classic, blooming notes — tuberose, gardenia, and jasmine — that are elevated by bright citrus punches and grounded by an earthy sandalwood and cedar base. Honeysuckle fans, this eau de parfum’s for you.
Gucci’s Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum is a fruity-floral scent with notes of pear, gardenia, and brown sugar that’ll be a refreshing addition to your warm-weather fragrance wardrobe.
Chanel fragrance fans, here’s some good news. During this sale, you can grab any of the luxury brand’s scents, including the fruity-floral Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette, for up to 20 percent off.
Meanwhile, body mist lovers should add Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ’62 Bum Bum Hair & Body Fragrance Mist, a warm and spicy mix of salted caramel, pistachio, and vanilla, to their collection.
