40 Best Beauty and Hair Must Haves At Sephora Bonus Summer Sale

Beauty blogger, journalist and influencer Candie Anderson has the scoop on 40 of the best skincare, makeup, and hair products at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale happening for a very limited time for VIB Rouge and VIB members.
My love for beauty products, skincare essentials, makeup and hair tools is strong. A few years ago I became a Sephora VIB Rouge member and have never looked back! I’d spent a lifetime hating my thick hair, and finally found a line that has improved my hair dramatically. As someone who has suffers from sensitive skin (and mild rosacea), it’s been a joy finding products that make me feel better about my appearance! Don’t get me started on my love of makeup! It’s my ultimate weakness. I tend to shop for foundation a few times a year at the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale, and last year was pleasantly surprised in mid-August when they kicked off the Sephora Bonus Summer Sale for VIB Rouge members and VIB members. It’s always a huge bonus to save 20% on makeup, face cream and more! I was so excited to learn that VIB Rouge members can save 20% this year, and VIB members can save 15%.
Since the sale is kicking off today, I wanted to share my favorite face cream, Tom Ford makeup, must have hair products for thick hair, a fabulous new mascara and more! I started out with 48 products and had to narrow it down to 40. It was a struggle, but it was well worth it! Many of these products are items I have used for the last few years, while others are items I just bought at the last Sephora Sale. They’re all sensitive skin approved! 
If you’re looking to shop for skincare products, makeup and hair must haves, you’re in luck! Here are 40 of the best products for women of all ages. Sephora VIB Rouge members can save from August 19 – August 27, 2019; and VIB members can save 15% from Tuesday, August 20 – August 27th. 

The Best Products To Remove Eye Makeup 


Beauty blogger Candie Anderson has the s coop on the best Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover, Shiseido facial cotton to remove your eye makeup. These items are 20% off during the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.

Shiseido Facial Cotton. I believe in doing everything you possibly can to prevent fine lines and wrinkles! My eyes are very sensitive, so taking off my makeup can be a hassle! A few years ago I started using Shisiedio Facial Cotton to take off my eye makeup remover and when using a toner. There’s a reason they have 2,000 five star positive reviews – they’re incredibly soft, durable and get the job done. 
Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover Home and Away Set. I have used this eye makeup remover since I first started wearing makeup as a teenager. It is my holy grail product! I will not wear makeup if I’m running low on my eye makeup remover until I have a replacement! My eyes are very sensitive and this is the only product that doesn’t irritate them. It is available in quite a few different sizes and prices. As someone who likes to save money, I bought the Home and Away kit because it includes a 13.5 container, and a 1.7 travel size for only $52! The 13.5 ounce retails for $62, and the travel size is $15, so you’re saving $25 by buying this set. If you’re a VIB Rouge/VIB member, you can save even more at the Sephora Bonus Sale! PS: I shared a few other sizes below in the Shop The Post widget, if you’re interested in a smaller size.

My Favorite Face Cream, Eye Cream and Lip Mask For Night

Beauty blogger, influencer and journalist Candie Anderson has the scoop on the best night cream. You'll love Creme Ancienne, Fresh Creme Ancienne eye cream. They're on sale at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.
Fresh Crème Ancienne. After washing my face, I apply this amazing face cream that is “hand-blended in a monastery.” It is very nourishing, and really helps my skin recover when it’s broken out. It contains many beneficial ingredients like meadowfoam seed oil, vitamin E, rosewater, chamomile wax and more. I highly recommend it! 
Fresh Crème Ancienne Eye Cream. This eye cream is one of the only eye creams that doesn’t irritate my skin. It’s very nourishing and absolutely phenomenal. A little goes a long way! 
Laneige lip sleeping mask. I’d heard rave reviews about this mask for your lips, and knew I had to try it. It comes with a little applicator to make application very easy. I apply it liberally on my lips before bed, and wake up with soft lips in the morning. If you’re anything like me and forget to put products on at night, I highly recommend keeping it on your nightstand. That’s what I do, and I never forget to put it on anymore. I love it in the original scent, and was excited to learn it also comes in vanilla, and in apple lime.

Must Have Eye Makeup Products At The Sephora Bonus Summer Sale


Beauty blogger Candie Anderson has the scoop on 40 of the best makeup essentials at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.



Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eye Shadow Palette. If you’re looking for a great eyeshadow palette, this is definitely it! It includes quite a few beautiful brown shades. The colors are buildable. It’s perfect for the office, church, brunch, date night, wedding season as more. You can create a great no-makeup makeup look or a smoky eye with it. Did I mention it also smells like chocolate? Even better! Here are a few other eye shadow palettes that get rave reviews!

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. I don’t like to use concealer because I feel like it accentuates the lines under my eyes. A few years ago I bought a kit from Becca that included this eye brightener and decided to give it a try! This little tub lasts forever. I feel like it brightens the skin under my eyes and makes me look more rested! I love it, and use it every single day whether or not I’m wearing foundation or highlighter. 

Fab Black Eyeliners, Mascaras and Primers At The Sephora Bonus Summer Sale


Beauty blogger Candie Anderson has the scoop on the best eyeshadow palette, eyeliner, mascara, primer, eyebrow essentials and under eye brightener! They are currently deeply discounted at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner. I started using this eyeliner about four years ago, and it will always be a favorite. It’s waterproof, never has to be sharpened and does an amazing job! I use it in the color “blacquer.” It’s an amazing waterproof black eyeliner.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide Eyeliner in Zero. I’m usually the one that gets my mom to try new makeup, but this time she was adamant that I had to try her 24/7 glide eyeliner. I’m so glad I listened to her for once 😉 It’s amazing! It glides right on, and is perfect for everyday or if you’d like a smoky eye! I really recommend the Urban Decay Grind House sharpener! I like my eyeliner to have a sharp point on it, every time I use it. This does the trick! 

Phenomenal Mascara and Primer At The Sephora Bonus Summer Sale

It Cosmetics Lash Blowout Mascara. I bought my first It Cosmetics mascara a few months ago and I love it! As a huge fan of It Cosmetics and Drybar, I knew I had to try their new mascara. I’m so glad I did! I bought it the first day it was released. It really makes your lashes look full and the best part is it doesn’t flake and it doesn’t clump.
Grande Cosmetics GrandePRIMER Pre-Mascara Lengthener & Thickener. This paraben-free primer will ensure your eyelashes look long and thick! I have had problems with primers in the past irritating my eyes, but this one never has. 

Eyebrow Essentials For Women Of All Ages

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tweezers. When I bought my tweezers, they were only available in pink. They’re now only available in black. They’re the prettiest tweezers I’ve ever seen, and they get the job done too! If you’re looking for a great pair of tweezers, I highly suggest investing in Anastasia tweezers.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. This eyebrow pencil is worth the hype.  I like natural looking eyebrows, and sadly my eyebrows are very thin and sparse. My hair is thick, but definitely not my eyebrows. This pencil makes it look like I actually have eyebrows! 
Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel. This eyebrow gel will ensure your brows look phenomenal. You can use it on its own or with your favorite eyebrow pencil! 

Save On Designer Foundations and Brushes At The Sephora Bonus Summer Sale


Save 20% on the best makeup products at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale. Candie Anderson has the scoop on Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick for dry sensitive skin.


Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick. It’s no secret foundations can be quite pricey. As someone with dry, sensitive skin I’m hesitant to try new products. I usually stick to items that I know work. Well, it’s no secret I love Tom Ford. I absolutely adore the brand, and it works really well with my skin type! During the previous Sephora Sale I purchased his foundation stick, and I absolutely love it. The brush was sold out at the time, so I use my trusty BeautyBlender! I like using the Rose moisturizer underneath since it’s so hydrating. This foundation provides excellent coverage and lasts all day. 
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. I used to use Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer for years upon years until I developed rosacea and had to use a foundation. I was sent a sample of Giorgio Armani’s foundation and fell in love with it immediately. I had dealt with really terrible skin for quite some time until I started using this product. In the summer I mix this foundation with a pump of my Becca highlighter and will be good to go! 
beautyblender. If you’re looking to invest in a great product that will make applying makeup easy and effortless, you can’t go wrong with a beautyblender. They’re available in a variety of sizes! I use mine to apply foundation and blend my favorite makeup products. 

Contour and Highlight Products Are A Must

Beauty blogger Candie Anderson has the scoop on the best foundation and Becca highlighter skin perfector at 20% off during the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. I bought this skin perfector/highlighter after watching a YouTube tutorial on Jessie James Decker’s channel. It really makes your skin glow! I like to wear it on its own or with my favorite foundations! 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Palette. I own the cream contour palette and the dry palette, but prefer the cream because my skin is naturally dry. It’s very easy to use, and looks very natural. It’s the best! 
Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate. This contour and highlighter is so easy to use! You can use a beautyblender, your finger tips or a brush! When my rosacea is really bad and would like a little color, I’ll put this on and use it as a bronzer.
Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Brush 04. This brush makes contouring and highlighting easy and effortless! It works really well with the palette above, and I also use it occasionally with my Anastasia contour palette.

Obsessed With This Bronzer and Bronzer Brush

Beauty blogger Candie Anderson has the scoop on the best Tom Ford bronzer, bronzer brush 05, shade and illuminate palette, shade and illuminate brush 04 at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.


Tom Ford Soleil Glow Bronzer. I’ve spent many years searching for the perfect bronzer, and I believe I have found it! This bronzer looks amazing on every skin type including my sensitive, dry skin. I’ve had this bronzer for over a year now (maybe close to two?). It’s one of my favorite products ever! It’s worth the hype. PS: I have the mini, and it’s still going strong!
Tom Ford Bronzer Brush 05. This brush retails for $115. I’d never spent that much on a makeup brush, so I definitely did my research. I read articles and watched YouTube tutorials to see if it was worth it. After seeing what this magnificent brush could do and how it could transform women’s appearance, I decided to buy it during a recent Sephora Sale. I am so glad I did! Tom Ford makeup brushes are worth the hype, especially this amazing brush. I highly recommend it!

The Best Moisturizers For Every Skin Type


Beauty blogger, influencer and journalist Candie Anderson has the scoop on the best moisturizers for those with dry, sensitive skin and rosacea. You can save up to 20% at the Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.


Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer. This is the first moisturizer I’ve ever bought that has never broken me out, and has kept my skin moisturized. It is good for normal, dry, oily and sensitive skin types. I can only speak for those of us with dry, sensitive skin, and I must say it’s amazing! I use this and the rose moisturizer!
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream. I bought a Fresh set early this summer which contained the Fresh Rose toner, face cream, lip balm and more! I fell in love with this amazing face cream instantly. Not only is it hydrating but it keeps my skin cool on hot summer days. My face tends to flush due to rosacea, and while I’m not sure this would work with everyone with this skin condition, I must admit it has really kept my skin cool in this heat. I absolutely love it! I will be stocking up on this moisturizer and the lotus moisturizer since adore both.

Favorite Lip Balms, Lip Glosses and Lipsticks On Sale


Beauty blogger, journalist and influencer Candie Anderson has the scoop on the best Charlotte Tilbury lipliner, Tom Ford lipstick, YSL lip products, lip balm, lip plumper and more at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.



Sephora Lip Balm and Scrub. Retails: $6. I’d heard amazing things about this budget friendly lip scrub/balm, and decided to give it a try! I bought it in “rose” and absolutely adore it. The rose lip balm and scrub “exfoliates and brightens” and works extremely well.
Too Faced Lip Injection. This is the BEST lip plumper I’ve ever found. I have used it for over a decade. It stings a bit when you first put it on, but it works extremely well! 
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Kim KW. This is the perfect nude matte lipstick with a “satin finish”, hands down. I like to use it with my favorite nude lip liner! It’s the best combo.
Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick. I started wearing YSL lipsticks a few years ago because I love the brand and was instantly drawn to how pretty their lipsticks are. I own quite a few and wear them all the time when I’d like a little shine and color! Nude Lavalliere (pinkish brown) is my favorite!!
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner: This is my favorite lip liner on the planet! If I’m not looking to wear my Too Faced Lip Injection lip gloss, I will pair this with my Kim KW nude lipstick, and it makes my lips look plump! It’s the absolute best. I use the shade “pillow talk.” PS: I highly recommend splurging on the Charlotte Tilbury sharpener as well! I tried using a generic sharpener and it didn’t work as well.
Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-in-Balm. While this lip balm is pricier than the others I featured, I must admit it’s amazing! It provides high shine, smells heavenly and is available in various colors. 
Tom Ford Lip Color lipstick. I LOVE everything Tom Ford especially his lipsticks and lip glosses. For some reason his lip glosses aren’t available at Sephora, but thankfully his lipsticks are! Open Kimono is a favorite (I love a nude lip!) but they also come in a variety of shades that are so pretty. 
Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment. I have been using Fresh skincare and lip products for the past few years years and adore them. Their scrubs are amazing as well. This lip treatment contains sugar, orange extract and sea fennel. It’s very moisturizing and perfect for everyday.

The Best Hair Products At The Sephora Bonus Summer Sale

I’ve shared quite a few times how much DryBar hair products have transformed my hair! I try to tell everyone I possibly can because I know what it’s like to hate your hair. My hair never had movement, looked incredibly dry, and was just awful in my opinion. I’d tried numerous hair products, and so glad I stumbled on DryBar. My hair absolutely LOVES their amazing shampoo, conditioner and mask. Here are a few favorites at the Sephora Sale.

Beauty blogger Candie Anderson has the scoop on the best hair products and hair tools from Drybar and T3. You can save up to 20% off at the 2019 Sephora Bonus Summer Sale.
Drybar Sake Bomb Shampoo. This shampoo is absolutely amazing! It’s very hydrating, and makes my hair feel soft. When I feel like I have used too many hair products during the week, I’ll mix it with the charcoal shampoo!
Drybar Nourishing Mudslide Hair Mask. This is the greatest hair product on the planet! When I first started using it, my hair was very damaged from a bad dye job. To say it was horrible is an understatement, it was an embarrassment! I’m so glad I stumbled on this mask. After using it one time, I noticed a difference. I used it religiously every time I washed my hair for three years. Now I just use it every few weeks because my hair is in amazing condition now! My hair is soft, has movement, is easy to straighten and curl! I used to have keratin treatments done in order for my hair to feel this way. I’m so happy I no longer have to do that!
Drybar Sake Bomb Conditioner. I mentioned how much I love Drybar’s mask above and how it transformed my hair. I must admit I was really scared to try a different conditioner because I love the mask so much. I decided to give it a try, and I’m so glad I did. It’s amazing! This conditioner is very hydrating as well. It’s the perfect everyday (or in my case every four day) conditioner!
Drybar Hold Me Hair Clips. This set of four hair clips is one of the best things I’ve ever purchased. If you have thick hair, you know how hard it is to find hair clips that will actually hold all of your hair. These clips are amazing. I use them to hold my hair up during the day, when I blow dry, straighten or curl my hair. They’re a must! 

 My Favorite Hair Tools For Thick Hair

Drybar Tress Press Styling Iron. This is the best flat iron I’ve ever used! I’ve had it for quite a few years now and it still works amazingly well. It not only straightens, but it curls too. It’s such a great hair product! I used to straighten my hair a ton when I lobbed my hair, now I use it when I want to create glam waves.
T3 1.25 curling iron. I own a T3 blowdryer, and curling wands and love them. The brand T3 has amazing hair products. I’d heard that T3 makes a great curling iron, so I decided to buy one during the most recent Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s so easy to use and the curls last for days. I can’t get enough of it! 
Here are a few of my favorite T3 Hair Tools that work extremely well. PS: I don’t own the curling iron set, but I’m tempted to get it!
