From luminizing drops to a cooling eye primer to luxury face brush set, scroll through our picks below:


Sephora Collection Radiant Luminizing Drops

SEPHORA COLLECTION Radiant Luminizing Drops

Customer Review: “Love this! After using primer, I put a few drops of this all over my face, followed by foundation (usually Dior Forever or Fenty Pro Filt’r). This provides a nice subtle radiance and takes always the harsh matte appearance that these foundations have. A great alternative to Becca’s Skin Perfector liquid, much cheaper!”

Shop it: $6 (originally $19), Sephora

Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit

Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit

Customer Review: “This has been one of the best makeup products I've ever used. Super easy and great for both an everyday or glam look. All colours look great with my skin tone and blend beautifully. I even have used it for eye shadow on those mornings I'm in a rush.”

Shop it: $40 (originally $54), Sephora

Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier H2O Gel Primer

SEPHORA COLLECTION Beauty Amplifier Mattifying H2O Gel Primer

Customer Review: “The Becca mattifying primer is my go to primer but this is better to me. It's much cheaper and it doesn't give the super dry crusty feeling I get with the Becca one. Mattifying primers are tricky. You have to pat them in. You can't rub the way you do with other primers or it creates a mess. Use the same way you would use the Becca primer and lightly pat on the areas you need to mattify. This and the Sephora brand primer that fills in pores will be my go tos this summer and you can't beat the price.”

Shop it: $6-9 (originally $11-20), Sephora

Milk Makeup Highlighting Powder

MILK MAKEUP Holographic Highlighting Powder

Customer Review: “I was totally blown away by this highlighter. I have pale skin, so a lot of highlighters are either too dark or don't show up on my skin, but the supernova colour gave me the perfect subtle purple highlight. you can blend it out to be a little more sheer, or build it up for a super pretty eyeshadow. I/m in love!”

Shop it: $16 (originally $31), Sephora


Sephora Collection Mixology Eyeshadow Palette

SEPHORA COLLECTION Mixology Eyeshadow Palette

Customer Review: “This palette is awesome! This is great if you're like me who isn't the best at picking out which colours to put together. They shadows are really pigmented, they apply very easily, and the brush is literally the best out of all the brushes I own. This brush can blend like no other!”

Shop it: $19-24 (originally $43), Sephora

Kat Von D 10th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D 10th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette

Customer Review: “GORGEOUS! So creamy and smooth. I was lucky enough to find it at the store about a week ago and I was stunned! The shimmers are kind of this duo chrome type and it’s just the most beautiful palette I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Shop it: $31 (originally $62), Sephora

Sephora Collection Tinted & Cooling Eye Primer

SEPHORA COLLECTION Tinted & Cooling Eye Primer

Customer Review: “Does everything a primer should for half the price of the other ones! Goes on best with a beauty blender. A little goes a long way! Great product and lots of product for a great price! This will last me a long time! Thank you Sephora!”

Shop it: $8 (originally $18), Sephora


Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick

Customer Review: “Holy grail lipstick formula and colour! Matte liquid lipsticks are too drying and look gross after a while but are long-wearing. Traditional lipsticks are comfortable but never last more than 1-2 hours on me. THIS combines the longevity of a liquid lipstick with the comfort of a traditional lipstick.”

Shop it: $14 (originally $28), Sephora

Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick

Customer Review: “I have tried so many lip glosses out on the market, I've lost count. I have terribly dry lips, getting worse as i get older, and i'm always looking for a gloss that will LAST, so i don't have to keep re-applying it. This one does that. And it looks good while doing it. I try to order at least 2 or 3 at a time anymore so I never run out.”

Shop it: $5-11 (originally $16), Sephora

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle 10/10

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick

Customer Review: “I bought this set on impulse and I wound up falling in love with all the shades. I love the range of colours and it's a mix of fashionable colours and wearable colours. There's something for everyone here. I also love how it was packaged. If you're a lipstick junkie, this is the set for you!”

Shop it: $132 (originally $190)


Sephora Collection Oh So Matcha Brush Set


Customer Review: “I love the colour. The packaging is super cute. They actually have some weight to them despite the size. The face brush could be a dupe for a high end brush already on the market. Such a steal!”

Shop it: $11 (originally $18), Sephora

Kat Von D 10th Anniversary Brush Set

Kat Von D 10TH Anniversary Brush Set

Customer Review: “The same vegan and cruelty free brushes from KVD, but In a beautiful golden metal. Handle is also metal so it has a good weight distribution, does not feel cheap at all. If you already know you love these brushes I highly recommend getting the gold set, yes it is just a different colour but the price is actually better vs buying them individually!”

Shop it: $75 (originally $150), Sephora

Sephora Collection PRO Fan Highlight Brush

Sephora Collection PRO Fan Highlight Brush

Customer Review: “Perfect size and shape for applying highlighter in exactly the right place. I’ve used bigger highlighter brushes before, as well as fan brushes, but this one combines the best of all the designs. It’s soft and small, and it picks up the right amount of product. I like a subtle highlight so this is perfect to just pop a tiny bit on my face, and down the centre of my nose.”

Shop it: $15 (originally $30), Sephora

Sephora Collection PRO Shader Brush


Customer Review: “I love this brush. I use it to get my brow bone and inner eye corner. It has the precision and somewhat wide enough size to apply a good amount of eyeshadow. This is my daily brush.”

Shop it: $11 (originally $22), Sephora
