My favorite thing about Sephora’s online store is the little red heart button that you can click to “love” something. It’s become sort of an addiction for me and sometimes I’ll check my “beauty basket” which is where all the “loves” go and purchase something for myself. These are a few products that I’d LOVE to own. Price points range from expensive to affordable.
1. Kevyn Aucoin, The Contour Book $59
Kevyn Aucoin is the Holy Grail of all things make-up and contouring has become quite the popular trend for 2015. This amazing book really shows the art of contouring, defining and sculpting with make-up. I have all of Kevyn Aucoin’s books and I’d love to own some of his products. Here is a link to an article that contains some timeless beauty advice from Kevyn.
2. Bite Beauty, Smashed Agave Lip Mask $26
This product is a leave-on lip mask that is infused with a lip stain. It contains lanolin, vanilla extract, natural olive fruit and jojoba oil. The tint on this particular product looks really pretty and I love that it combines lip mask with a wearable tint! Definitely going to be purchasing this product in the future.
3. Urban Decay, B6 Vitamin Infused Complexion Prep Spray $33
Urban Decay makes some of the best primers and setting sprays! I have tried and love both the De-slick and All Nighter sprays and I highly recommend both of those products. The B6 spray helps to absorb oils, minimize pores and reduce redness. This prep spray has over 10,000 loves on Sephora. I am planning on purchasing this spray in the future.
4. Make Up For Ever, 12 Flash Color Case $99
The 12 Flash Color Case comes in Neutral (shown above) and Artistic, which contains brighter colors and gold and silver. Any of the colors can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks! The reason I’d love to own this product is simple, customizable versatility. There is so much that can be done with these palettes and I love that I could create my own colors and use them how I’d like too.

5. Tarte, Slenderizing Bamboo Contouring Brush $32
I’ve played with this brush at a make-up store and really fell in love with it. It’s super soft and the shape really allows for perfect contouring with powders. Unfortunately, I did not purchase the brush and regret it. I keep reading amazing reviews about it and I’m sure it’d work great with the Kevyn Aucoin Contouring Book!
6. Dior, DIORSKIN AIRFLASH $62
I’ve seen a lot of make-up artists using spray foundations and have always be interested in try them out myself. Dior claims that this product is meant to create an airbrush effect. Out of all the spray foundations I looked into this product had some of the best reviews.
7. Too Faced, Better Than False Lashes Extreme $35
Too Face just released this kit and it’s basically the Better Than False Lashes reformulated. I actually own the first version of this product and adore it. It has mixed reviews online but I believe that it’s because it is a tricky product to use. Once you learn how to use it however, it’s WONDERFUL! I put this on my list because I’m curious to try the new formula and see how it works in comparison to the old.
8. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Mix Masters Primary Pack $29
OCC’s Lip Tars are my newest obsession. I own a couple small sets of Lip Tars that include matte and gloss shades. The Lip Tars are highly pigmented little tubes or pure joy. They go on super easy and although the tubes are small, you need very little to get crazy bold lips! The primary pack is really awesome because the colors included can literally make any color you want. Just like the Make Up For Ever Flash Case, it’s customizable versatility. You can also use the Lip Tars as cheek stains. This is a picture I posted on my Instagram of me playing with the glossy Lip Tars that came with the shade Little Black Dress. I used it to create an ombre effect. After playing with the Lip Tars I want them all!
9. NARS, NARSissit Blush, Contour and Lip Palette $59
I’ve always been a huge fan of NARS but they really won me over when they created a line based on my favorite artist, Andy Warhol. All of their make-up applies so well and the packaging on all the products is really exquisite. NARsissist looks like an amazing palette and one you can just throw in your purse for on
10. NARS, NARS Vault $500
There is not much that needs to be said about this lovely vault. I’m completely in love with the packaging and colors in this product. Ten gorgeous shades of lipstick and ten beautiful nail polishes. I can only dream of owning this one day.
