I am always on the hunt for new beauty items. While I have my tried and true like this tinted highlighter, this matte lipstick and this bronzer and highlighter duo, I have been trying to update my beauty routine and therefore find myself branching out and testing new products. Below are a few new-to-me finds that I have been loving as of late! All of these are Sephora beauty picks – one of my favorite places to shop for beauty needs. Sephora carries so many of the brands I love like Charlotte Tilbury, Summer Fridays, and more recently, Fenty Beauty.

Thank you to ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.


Pat McGrath Mini MatteTrance Lipstick Trio // Years ago I was all about a bold lip. Somehow, over the past two years, I have found wearing a more subdued shade almost daily (Stila ‘Baci’). In 2020 I want to bring back some bold colors so I picked up this lipstick trio and it is everything! I love a great matte lipstick and these (particularly the shade Elson) are perfectly matte without being too dry, and have an incredibly rich pigment!

NARS Afterglow Eyeshadow Palette // I typically stick to nude/neutral colors when it comes to eyeshadows, but have been intrigued to try more warmer tones that almost flare a bit orange. This palette is a great mix of more matte, shimmer, and satin shadows. While I would normally gravitate towards the matte options, I love the ‘Hot Line’ shimmer shade in this kit!

Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Mascara // I have been using drugstore mascara for quite some time. Now that my favorite option has been discontinued, I’m on the hunt for a replacement! I decided to try this tube and am loving it so far. It gives great coverage and volume without being clumpy, and I love the unique shape of the wand to tackle my top and bottom lashes!

Glow Recipe Banana Souffle // Hello hydration! I started adding this lightweight moisturizer to my nightly beauty routine and have noticed how fresh my skin looks and feels in the AM! Since I have also been using this serum at night, I wanted a cream that didn’t feel too heavy/dense (I hate waking up feeling like my skin is oily) and this one fits the bill!

Sephora Collection Brow Pencil // I have brows that are on the lighter side and have been filling them in by using a brow gel (this is one of my favorites). But, I needed just a litttllleee bit more definition and fill so I picked up this brow pencil to apply before my brow gel and it has made a world of difference! I have considered getting my brows microbladed but then always come across a horror story and decide…never mind. I will just continue to fill them in every day.
