Sephora Holiday Bonus Beauty Insider Sale Picks

Sephora Holiday Bonus Beauty Insider Sale Picks | She Sweats DiamondsHappy Friday, friends! Last week, I shared details on the Sephora Holiday Bonus Beauty Insider Event and what products I’ve tried. This week, I wanted to share with you my picks from the Beauty Insider Sale!

When I have unlimited play money, this is what I’d haul (and more because let’s face it, I’m a beauty addict, haha!). Let’s get started!


LAURA MERCIER Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow – I’ve heard so much about this setting powder over the years. If Maybelline ever stops making my favorite loose powder, I’ll dry my tears wit- I mean, start using this powder.

NARS Hot Tryst Cheek Palette – After following Marianna on her Bora Bora adventures this past week, I’m loving the Nars brand more than ever. If I could haul one thing from this Beauty Insider Sale, it’d be this palette. Sadly, it’s out of stock. However, you can bet that I’ll be watching for a restock like a hawk! 

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY The Bronze – Bronzer Brush No. 12 – Because it’s #MarcJacobs and because I love their Face III Buffing Foundation Brush already so why not build my beauty tools collection with this gorgeous makeup bronzer brush?

ESTÉE LAUDER Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation – I heard SO much about this foundation that I swatched it when I stopped in Nordstrom a few months ago. Stay in place is right because this foundation stayed put on my hand. I tried to rub it off to test it and it didn’t budge!

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder – Another sold-out-I-am-watching-for-a-restock-like-crazy product. I love her lipsticks so I thought I’d branch into her face makeup!


NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer – I love their radiant creamy concealer already so this would be fun to test!

YVES SAINT LAURENT All Hours Concealer – Considering I’m a loyal user of their Touche Eclat pens, this concealer would be fun to test on those long days I have coming up! What do you guys think? Have you tried this concealer?

TOO FACED Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer – I just started using Too Faced products this past year and since this had great reviews, why not?

URBAN DECAY Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette – Again, it’s URBAN DECAY! This team can do no wrong when it comes to their eyeshadow products! I think this palette is PERFECT to take me through the fall, winter and holiday seasons!

NARS Atomic Blonde Eye & Face Palette – Because #NeutralsForTheWin! Duh.


PAT MCGRATH LABS LUST: Mini MatteTrance™ Trio – I didn’t get a chance to order this set as it sold out, but I’m going to see if I can find it in the Skin Show shades: Omi, 1995, and Flesh 3 in stores. Wish me luck! 

NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil – It’s been a long time since I’ve used lipstick pencils so I plan on swatching some in-store to see the colors in person.

YVES SAINT LAURENT Rouge Pur Couture Limited Edition Lipstick – I saw this lipstick in 70- Le Nu – basic nude in person and the finish is beautiful! Most definitely the next lipstick from YSL I’ll be purchasing. Fun fact: YSL was the first high-end designer beauty brand I purchased from!

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick – I don’t wear much red, but CT’s Screen Siren, which is a classic ruby red color, is so beautiful and absolutely perfect for the holidays!

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Lip Cheat Lip Liner – Since I love her lipsticks already, a lip liner (in Pillow Talk) is a must, right?


SUMMER FRIDAYS Overtime Mask – I haven’t used a face scrub in years and this product is next on my list!
FARMACY Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy™  – I can’t say I’ll ever switch over to clean beauty 100%, but I’m not opposed to adding clean beauty products to my bathroom cabinet like this cleansing balm.
LANEIGE Multi Cleanser  – K-beauty is something I’ve dabbled in this last year and I’m loving it! I’m a huge fan of Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask and Moisture Bank Cream so why not try their cleanser?

SAND & SKY Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask – Pink packaging and pore-related product? Yes, please. Hey, Sand & Sky, I love you already!

TATCHA Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil – Another Asian beauty brand I adore and I don’t care if my addiction grows out of control after trying this cleansing oil!


CHRISTOPHE ROBIN Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt – I sometimes get dandruff so this was a unique product to find as I’ve never heard of a scrub for hair before!

BRIOGEO Don’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Mask – I love that this comes in three different sizes. Try before you buy, you know?

AMIKA Polished Perfection Straightening Brush – Their dry shampoo is ah-mazing so I’m definitely not opposed to using this brush/straightener hybrid. Could this be the end of spending lots of time doing my hair? If so, this is the one tool I’d haul from the Beauty Insider Sale for sure!

RAHUA Leave-In Treatment – Another clean beauty brand for hair and since I don’t used a ton of leave-in treatments, this might be worth a shot.

KÉRASTASE Discipline Cream for Curly Hair – I heard so much about the Kerastase brand. Because my hair is hard to tame, I think this cream might do the trick! And the fact that the word ‘discipline’ is part of the products name, makes it SO relatable, ha!

What are you eyeing from the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale?

Let me know if you get anything so I can nerd out with you!

Sorry for getting this post up so late! I had it scheduled to go live this morning, but Sephora had shut down their website for updates so I couldn’t finish it on time. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! 

Note: Any product that I’ve mentioned that I love, I purchased myself. I was not gifted these products nor was I compensated or asked to review these products by Sephora or any (beauty) brand. All opinions are solely my own.
