No need to wait for another sale to score these babies, and you can do a mini haul with just three items to qualify for free shipping. Sounds like a good deal, right? If you’re ready to try shopping at one of the most-loved beauty retailers in the world, make sure to keep an eye out for these pocket-friendly finds!
Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover (P308 for 50ml)
Ever had an eyeliner that was so budge-proof and hulas-free that it worked a little too well? Or a mascara that gave awesome results but takes you forever (and 10 shed lashes) to remove? If you’ve been stepping up your makeup game with long-lasting products, make sure your cleansing routine has caught up as well. This waterproof eye makeup remover dissolves even the most stubborn of formulas with ease and takes away ALL traces of makeup. It doesn’t irritate the eyes so even contact lens wearers can use it safely. It also contains the ingredient Procapil, which helps to promote natural lash growth!
It’s hard to find an eyeliner with as wide a range of colors as this one by Sephora’s in-house brand! They have an amazing array of 33 bold and vivid shades to choose from, and deemed as the best eyeliner available at Sephora by shoppers. It’s not hard to see why, either: the creamy formula glides on easily, and lasts all day. It stays well even on the waterline! The pencil is beautifully pigmented, and available in matte and shimmer finishes. Trust us: it's difficult to not want to get this in every color!
Zoeva Luxe Cream Lipstick (P553 for 3.8g)
With its sleek, chrome-inspired packaging and incredible formula, we were pretty shocked to learn that this luxe-looking tube cost less than P600! It’s so pigmented, creamy, and moisturizing that it can easily pass as a coming from a higher-end brand. The shade Venus Phase is a flattering combination of coral and pink that could definitely work for all skin tones.
What’s beauty shopping without throwing in a brow product or two? Pencils are still the easiest (and quickest) way to fill and define arches, and we like how the formula for this one is buildable. You can make your brows as soft or dark as you want by simply changing the pressure of your stroke, and applying more to sparse areas. Use the brush on the cap to groom hair into place and diffuse any obvious deposits of color.
3CE One Color Shadow – Shimmer (P503 for 2.5g)
Did you know that Sephora carries Korean brands as well? If you haven’t yet tried anything from Three Concept Eyes, this eyeshadow provides a great intro to the brand. Highly pigmented and finely milled, it finishes to a soft, suede-like texture. Saturn is a beautiful, slightly edgy but wearable reddish-purple color that looks elegant, especially for evening events.
Eyeko Mascara Off Eye Makeup Remover Wipes (P462 for 10 wipes)
We just love the portability of makeup remover wipes but most of them aren’t potent enough to remove eye makeup. Not this one though - these wipes are formulated with a bit of olive oil that essentially allow you to double-cleanse in a more convenient format. It removes all traces of makeup and contains aloe extract to soothe and moisturize the delicate skin of the eye area.
We’ve always loved Zoeva’s brushes but if you want to try them before committing to a set, add this brush to your cart. It’s a hand-crafted, multi-functional brush that can apply eyeshadow, contour the eyes, and highlight the brow arch! The bristles are crazy soft, making them super comfortable to use on the eye area, and it even comes with its own little brush bag.
Say goodbye to frizz and baby hair! This non-greasy formula tames errant strands into submission, and nourishes and repairs them, too. It even gives a boost to thinning hair as it makes our tresses feel smooth and volumized even with just the tiniest bit of product.
Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse Travel Size (P570 for 2oz)
Not only does this hair mousse smell sooo good, it also does a fantastic job at giving volume! It provides a good yet not stiff hold to styled tresses, and gives the appearance of a thicker, fuller mane as well. And if you feel like your ‘do is beginning to go limp, you can pack this travel-sized canister into your purse and refresh as needed.
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser (P536 for 2oz)
Even we can barely believe that something as light and gentle can remove waterproof makeup! Somehow, it actually works, and that’s only the first in its long list of advantages. The whipped texture makes it easy to use, works even for sensitive skin, and promises a pH-balanced formula that helps prevent breakouts. Yes, this cleanser has everything we need and more!
