Around this time of the year, you can expect 3 things in the beauty world: pumpkin everything, new makeup and skincare, and value sets. While I love pumpkin, I look forward to anything and everything new, especially at a good value so if you’re curious to see my recent loves (as well as inspiration for your Sephora wish list), check out the following products.


Hello Kitty An Apple A Day Trio Lip Balm Set, $20. I love Hello Kitty. She appeals to the perpetual 5 year old I have inside and I’m not ashamed to admit it. But with cute packaging and lip balms that are infused with strawberry, vanilla, apple, and coconut, wouldn’t you love these too?

Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift in Cara D, $29. Charlotte is one the industry’s best makeup artists and her new makeup line really proves how amazing she is at what she does. She’s created products that are named after models and since Cara Delevingne has the world’s best eyebrows at the moment, it’s only natural to get this brow pencil. I personally have thick eyebrows but we all have areas that need a bit of filling in and this pencil does the trick while looking incredibly natural. The brush at the end helps make the brows look even more natural and the hidden highlighter makes this the perfect multi-tasking product when you’re on the go.

Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Skincare Collection, $39. I’ve been using Josie’s Argan oil and line for a while now and couldn’t imagine it getting better. Well, the one way it can get better is by having all my favorites in one perfect gift set for a cheap price—and now it has. It comes with 2 hand creams, a moisturizer, cleansing oil, her signature argan oil, and the argan milk to help keep your skin clean and well moisturized for the cold months to come.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector, $19. Ok, I admit I’m late to the highlighting game with this one but I’m glad I finally got around to it. Dewy skin is my go to finish all year round and mixing this stuff with my foundation makes my face look like it’s being lit with angel dust. It’s so creamy and natural looking that it’s barely detectable. The best part is that they now make a generous travel size for those, like myself, that don’t want to commit to the $41 full size bottle. Great for day, night, and any time in between.

COMME DES GARCONS Play Red, $110. My go-to fragrance is Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle and has been for years but I’ve been on the hunt for a while for something different and saw this at Sephora. It has notes of mint, juniper berry, jasmine, and basil, among others, that make it very unique. The only thing I don’t like about it: no travel or smaller sizes. Try this one for yourself if you’re a fan of unconventional.
