My Shopping Guide to The 2021 Sephora Spring Sale ðŸ’„

One of my favourite sales of the year has finally arrived! Today marks the first day of the Sephora Spring Sale that runs from April 9- April 19, 2021. This sale is one of two site-wide sales that Sephora has in a year, the other is the holiday sale usually in November. I look forward to the spring sale specifically because this is the time where I experiment and purchase products that I’ve been wanting to buy but haven’t tried out yet. This is also the perfect time to buy items that you are interested in for the summer or for products that are a little bit more of a splurge that you wouldn’t normally buy. It’s quite simple to shop the sale, all you need to know is the code to save (provided below), the Sephora tier you belong to, and your wishlist 😉

If you don’t have an account with Sephora, you can sign up for free here. If you are in the Rouge status, you will be able to shop first with early access with 20% off from April 9-19. If you are in the VIB status, you can start shopping with 15% off on April 13-19. If you are an Insider, you will be able to shop with 10% off from April 15-19. Make sure to use the code OMGSPRING when you are checking out to receive your spring savings! I have split this post into several sections so it is easier to plan your shopping strategy (and yes I take this sale that seriously). The sections include makeup, skincare, hair care, and fragrances. Within each category, I have listed products that I have on my wishlist and want to buy during the sale. I will double asterisk (**) any product that is a restock to me meaning that I’ve already used it and is a favourite of mine to repurchase. If at any time, you need a more comprehensive review of a particular product or have additional questions, please reach out to me ~ I’m happy to help! 🛍

Makeup

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Smoothing Foundation, $44 – Since I have been looking for a full coverage foundation and all of the other Charlotte Tilbury products, I’ve really enjoyed, I wanted to try this foundation to see how it would work for me. By using the shade finder, I believe I would be between the shades of 6, 7 , or 7.5 depending on what time of year it is.

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Flawless Setting Spray, $20 – This setting spray is supposed to be one of the best but since I haven’t tried it yet I would rather get the mini than the full size. Additionally, if I get the CT foundation listed above, it might be best for me to pair the same brand’s setting spray with it.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Instant Eyeshadow Palette, $75 – During the holidays sale, I bought the limited edition bejeweled palette and I have been using it nonstop. Since most of those eyeshadows are glittery/shimmer based, I wanted to try the original Pillow Talk Palette for everyday use. The sale is a great time to snag this luxury eyeshadow palette.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil, $22 – I have been wanting to try a brown eyeliner to achieve that perfect glowy refreshed look for the summer. I want to get the shade bourbon and try it out with my other brown eyeshadows for a more relaxed look.

Gucci Poudre De Beauté Mat Naturel Beauty Setting Powder, $62 – The reviews about this product speak for itself. I have been interested in the Gucci makeup line for years but haven’t actually tried any of them. Usually I need a powder for the warmer months to set my face, so I wanted to see how this would pair with my current foundations.

Gucci Mascara L’Obscur, $35 – Over the past two years, I have tried upwards of 10 different mascaras and while I have found a few that I like for specific reasons, I want to try this one as I’ve been told it’s an overall great quality mascara. Of course, the packaging is a big seller as well.

ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation, $48- I feel like this foundation is calling my name. I have been moving towards clean skincare and makeup products over the last year since my health issues arose. ILIA is considered clean beauty at Sephora so in addition to being a clean brand, it has quite powerful ingredients within it and a high SPF of 40 which seems like the perfect product for me to wear this upcoming summer. Based on the shade finder, it seems that my shade would be 9 Paloma.

ILIA Mini Blue Light Protect + Set Mist, $18 – Carrying on with the clean beauty brand, ILIA, I wanted to try this setting mist in combination with the skin tint. Since I mostly stare at screens all day, I always look for blue light protection in as many products as I can. This mini product will allow me to try the mist without committing to the full size.

ILIA Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara, $28 – One more product I want to try from this brand. I have heard nothing but good reviews about this mascara and since I’ve been trying out so many mascaras, what is the harm in trying out one more?

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, $20 – I’ve heard great things about these liquid blushes from Selena Gomez’s cosmetics brand. I am looking particularly at the two shades Happy and Lucky but unsure of which would look best with my skin tone. I might buy both just to try them out. I think Lucky would be a great summer item to wear.

Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation, ** $29 – I bought this earlier last year and I really liked wearing it for the fall time. It’s medium coverage but buildable to make it more full coverage. It is very lightweight on the skin and didn’t cause any irritation or texture problems on my skin. I wear the shade 270 N but will most likely need a lighter shade for now since that was after the summer months. I plan on buying another shade during this sale. Their shade range is amazing!!

Marc Jacobs Velvet NoirMajor Volume Mascara Very Merry Cherry Edition, **sale $19 – I bought this mascara during the holiday sale and this has been the one mascara I have been wearing nonstop since then. It does not flake off at all, very thickening and not too hard to take off. Even though it is categorized as the merry holiday edition, I could argue the colours work for the summer and spring especially since cherries are very on trend now. It is currently on sale so I will def be grabbing another one.

Hair

Drybar Southern Belle Volume-Boosting Root Lifter, $26 – I kinda hate that I want this just because of the name but marketing makes a ton on me. I’m always up for trying different hair products and while I currently have a volume lift spray I like, I want to try this one and see how it works.

Drybar Texas Tease Teasing Brush, $18 – Again, the name can sell me on almost anything. Everything is truly bigger and better in Texas so I HAVE to get this teasing brush to add volume to my hair.

Drybar Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist, $27 – I am in serious need of a heat protectant. I have been reading some good reviews, and though some have said the fragrance is strong, I don’t mind fragrances in my hair products. I’m going to buy it and see how it holds up with all of my heat styling tools.

Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo, (mini) $14 – I have been in this phase of trying out different dry shampoos while I’ve been in the process of training my hair. I like to get several mini sizes of various dry shampoos and try them out. Since I haven’t tried this one out and that it claims its detoxing, I want to try this out to see how it compares to others.

IGK Upgraded First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo Set, ** $27 – Another repurchase for me. I bought this set during the holiday savings event and it has worked out great for me! It truly detoxes my hair and is a heavy duty dry shampoo that I usually use on day 3 or 4 hair. This set is a great value because you get a full size and a travel size which is super convenient. Excited to get this in my order.

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment, ** $32 – All of Briogeo’s Scalp Revival line is amazing! I bought the set of the line so I could help my dry and itchy scalp during the holiday savings event. Now my scalp is feeling much better and I use this treatment every time I wash my hair. I’m almost out of my current bottle so I need to buy it while it’s on a discount. It truly soothes my scalps and I have noticed a huge difference in the decrease of flakiness on my scalp.

Drybar The Mixologist Interchangeable Styling Iron, $199 – I feel like interchangeable irons are a popular trend but I’ve seen several types of wands in one and several types curling irons in one but I’ve never seen a wand, curling iron, and waver all in one which is what caught my eye. I’ve been looking to find a waver for the summer and since this tool has all 3, I want to try this out and see how each looks. Drybar has a great respectable reputation so I have high hopes for this tool.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Limited Edition Gift Set, $399 – Okay here it is, the big kahuna, THE dyson hair dryer. I have been eyeing both this and the Airwrap for awhile but haven’t been sure of the major investment it takes to get these products. Essentially, my hair is very thick and it holds moisture forever. When it air-dries, it isn’t fully dry until almost 24 hours later. Since this hair dryer is very powerful and the new technology is supposed to do less damage with heat styling, I thought this would be the perfect tool for me to try out. This gift set is a great value to me because it is limited edition and it includes two gift brushes with the hair dryer for the price of the hair dryer regularly. I’m still nervous on actually purchasing it just because it is quite the splurge, but I think it will work well for my hair needs.

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Mask, $32 – Since this a new product to the Scalp Revival line I’ve been using, I wanted to try out this product since it is supposed to cater to itchy scalps.

Mini Dae Hair Kit, $32 – I am in serious need of hair help. I’ve tried so many different shampoos and conditioners and haven’t been able to find one that works for my hair type. After reading the reviews for this brand, I wanted to try it out but couldn’t commit to the full size products. I thought this mini set would be the perfect way to try out the line and see if it will work for me.

Skincare

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream 8.1 oz, ** $45 – This is a restock for me! I have been through 2 jars of this and I can’t get enough. I haven’t had it during the summer months so I’m excited to get it now in time for the warmer weather. Smells like I’m on a beach somewhere in Mexico… which is exactly where I want to be at this point. Even though this is a splurge lotion, I find it worth it.

Olehenriksen Wrinkle Blur Bakuchiol Eye Gel Creme, $49 – This is a new product that has Bakuchiol which is a plant based retinol alternative. I struggle with fine lines on my under-eye area so I’m hoping this will help as part of my nighttime skincare routine.

Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme, $39 – I have heard great reviews about this eye creme and I’ve been on the hunt for a good under-eye product. I’m hoping this will be a good addition to my daytime skincare routine due to the Vitamin C in it. I would use this product before I apply my concealer/makeup.

Fragrance

Dior Miss Dior Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz, ** $105 – This is a repurchase for me! I love this scent, it was one of the first ones that my mom bought me when I first entered college. Now that it’s almost empty, I need to get another bottle for sure. This scent is classic and a timeless favourite.

Versace Bright Crystal 1.7 oz, $82 – This was a sample I got a couple of months ago and I really liked it upon first smell. I like to wear it whenever I go out to dinner but now that I’m out of the sample, I’m interested in the full size product.

Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Eau de Parfum 1.6 oz , $102 – I received a sample of this in a Nordstrom beauty sample box and I fell in love with this scent! I’m hoping to snag the full size in the sale.

Okay this is one of my longer more full blog posts I’ve posted but for good reason. I wanted to make sure that I was as informative as possible. The majority of this post are items that I haven’t tried but want to purchase during the sale. If you are interested in another post about my tried and true items that I currently use that could be purchased during the sale, let me know and I can put something together. I truly have the best time researching and trying out products so I hope that my two cents in this blog post is helpful. If you have tried any of these products or if you plan on buying one, please let me know… we can compare notes! I’m always here to help with any shopping tips. I hope you are all able to snag one or two goodies from the sale, everyone deserves to treat themself once in awhile. Thanks for reading along and your support! 🤍

XOXO
