Giorgio Armani Beauty Prisma Glass Gloss

Gillian Fuller, Content Manager

I’ll be the first to admit that I am a lip makeup hoarder. Every single one of my bags has at least a few glosses or lip oils stashed in it, and my nightstand is basically a shrine to balms. Lately, though, I find myself reaching for the new Giorgio Armani Beauty Prisma Glass Gloss more than anything else. The squalane-infused formula feels super hydrating (never sticky) on my lips, and I love the shade range. Currently, Cherry Glaze is my go-to—it gives me that perfect glass lip look with the most flattering hint of juicy color. Through May, the gloss is exclusively at Sephora, so the spring sale is the perfect opportunity to see the hype for yourself.

Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Makeup Setting Spray

Margaret Fisher, Content Director

Years ago, I started finishing every makeup application with a few spritzes of setting spray, and now I can’t go without it. I always make sure to stock up on my favorite spray—Urban Decay All Nighter—whenever there’s a Sephora sale. Not only does it help my makeup last, but it also really makes my makeup look better. Pro tip: I always check if there are any sets, like this one, so I can save a little extra!

Lancôme Lash Idôle Lash-Lifting & Volumizing Waterproof Mascara

Jazmine A. Ortiz, Senior Content Manager

I can’t stop talking about this mascara enough. Since its release, it’s become a staple in my makeup routine and goes with me wherever I go. The waterproof formula is perfect for travel (aka swimming and humidity-proof), but also for daily wear, especially if you’re like me and your eyes tear up at the slightest inconvenience. Now, the real reason I adore this mascara: Its lash-lifting powers are no joke. I strongly suggest any girlie who covets an anime-lash look to run, not walk to the Sephora Beauty Insider sale and scoop up Lancôme Lash Idôle so you can keep one in all your bags.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation

Leanne Park, Community Manager

This has been my tried-and-true foundation for over five years. I’ve had moments where I’ve gotten curious and tried other foundations on the market, but I ALWAYS end up coming back to this one. My skin becomes oilier/drier depending on the season, but this foundation never fails to blend smoothly on my skin and gives me a nice dewy glow without appearing too shiny. It also has buildable coverage without looking cakey. Looking forward to re-stocking at the Sephora sale of all Sephora sales!

Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette

Alyssa Pulice, Director of Digital Content

The range of this palette is key for my everyday makeup look. It is the only eyeshadow I keep in my makeup kit at all times since it’s versatile enough for casual settings or a night out on the town. I am adding a new one to cart this year during the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale because my favorite shades (Dust and Burnout) are almost out…like scraping the pod out! So, so GOOD!

IT Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow Lightweight Foundation + Glow Serum with SPF 40 and Niacinamide

Tanya Sangani, Content and Creative Marketing Associate

I absolutely love this CC cream by IT Cosmetics and usually wait for a Sephora sale to stock up! It is such a hydrating skin tint and has buildable coverage. The glow and sunscreen it provides are amazing. I love being able to achieve a natural, no-makeup makeup look with this product.

Urban Decay Face Bond Self Setting Waterproof Foundation

Cat Ko, Assistant Manager of Social Media and Social Intelligence

I just started using Urban Decay’s Face Bond Foundation, and I’m thoroughly impressed with the brand’s latest release. I finally found a foundation that isn’t too heavy but is still full coverage. It has the skincare benefits of a serum and setting powder—anything that simplifies my makeup routine is a winner in my book. Not to mention, it just feels good on the skin.
