    I hope you're in the mood for restocking or revamping your beauty routine because Sephora's got a sale to help you do it all (more affordably). Their Labor Day sale is giving you up to 50% off makeup, skincare, and hair items and, currently, we're making our beauty wishlists and checking them twice.


    We combed through this ~fabulous~ deal for the best of the best at a bargain. Here are some of our picks:

    1. This Olenhenriksen 3 Little Wonders skincare set to provide you with all the (non-intimidating) essentials you need to jumpstart a new skincare routine.

    A mini jar of moisturizer, and mini bottles of serum and gel

    The set includes a Truth Serum, a Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer, and an Invigorating Night Transformation Gel.

    Promising review: "Tried and true...I’ve been using Ole Henriksen for years — the Truth Serum is the truth!!! This set is AWESOME and makes a huge difference on my skin. I am a 52-year-old medium-to-dark skinned African American and my main issue is hyperpigmentation due to hormones, which cause acne breakouts (argh!!!). This stuff works!!!!" —Ing533

    Price: $52 (originally $74)

    2. An Aether Beauty Solstice eyeshadow palette because it pretty much has every shade you need to create natural-looking everyday eyeshadow looks.

    The 12-pan palette with light pinks and browns

    Promising review: "If you’re looking for a clean “everyday” type of look palette get this. The texture and pigment in these shadows are just amazing. I love the clean ingredients. I needed a new palette to replace an old palette from a different company with the same type of colors. This one is so much better. The quality of the shadows, the sustainable packaging and clean ingredients make it a palette to buy. I really love the range in shades. You can definitely use it to be more of an everyday lighter look, but can definitely use those duochromes and darker shades for something more dramatic." —jessamoomoo

    Price: $40 (originally $58)

    3. This Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation so you can seamlessly transition from dewy summer makeup to matte fall foundation without going over budget.

    Light, medium, and deep foundation swatches across light, medium, and deep skin tones

    Promising review: "This is my go-to everyday foundation. It gives a nice medium coverage, doesn’t look cakey, and it lasts all day. It gives my face a flawless look. I have very oily skin so I love that it is matte. The scent is also light and not overwhelming." —emmieedeee

    Price: $21.50 (originally $36; available in 23 shades)

    4. A Kat Von D Dagger Tattoo Liner pen designed with an angled tip to help you *finally* achieve the perfect winged look that no amount of beauty tutorials have been able to help you with.

    The eyeliner pen showing an angled felt tip

    Promising review: "I'm someone who struggles to do a neat cat eye liner — sometimes I get it just right but on most occasions I just wind up messing up my beautiful eye makeup and have to resort to concealer to cover it up. However, this liner has changed everything — the tapered tip is quite the revolution in design — now I can truly draw a cat eye worthy of any red carpet almost every time. I know a lot of you can just draw those eye liner looks so effortlessly but some of us do struggle. I am so happy with this product as I never thought I would be able to master that look." —BeijingGirl1990

    Price: $12 (originally $21)

    5. This Fenty Beauty Match Stix contour and highlight trio so you can stop taking shots in the dark to accurately match your perfect highlight, contour, and concealer combo.

    Light, medium, and deep stick swatches across light, medium, and deep skin tones

    Promising review: "I don’t know why I waited so long to buy this but I’m so glad I did! Seriously love them all! They blend so beautifully they just melt into the skin. You can build up the coverage, but it’s worth it. Such a beautiful finish!!" —nicoleyyjade

    Price: $37 (originally $54; available in four shade sets)

    6. A six-piece Sephora Collection face brush set to replace the ones you've been washing and reusing for years since they've finally run their course.

    The large and small brushes inside a carrying case

    The set includes a powder brush, a foundation brush, a large shadow brush, a large brow brush, a smudge brush, and a carrying case.

    Promising review: "These brushes are so silky and makeup actually stays on my face, instead of caking up the brush. I used it once and I fell in love. Great quality as always with a low price!" —cremesickle

    Price: $25 (originally $49)

    7. This tube of Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Matte Lipstick with a wide array of long-lasting, hydrating shades — you're bound to find one (or two, or three, or five) that you'll fall in love with.


    Promising review: "I don’t typically wear lipstick and went out on a limb and bought this. I love it! It moisturizes but isn’t heavy at all!" —KristinG23

    Price: $12.50 (originally $18; available in 24 shades)

    8. A bottle of Peter Thomas Roth Hyaluronic Cloud Serum to help quench the thirst of your insatiably dry skin since it's formulated with 75% hyaluronic acid complex.

    The product in a bottle with a pump top

    Promising review: "Worth the price! It’s been five months since I first tried this HA serum and I’m on my second bottle. I have eczema patches that just started getting worse this year so I tried so many moisturizers and my old serums didn’t work. I gambled on this product based on reviews and so far I have no complaints. It’s light and absorbs so well. I apply after washing my face and then seal it with Tatcha Dewy Cream or another lighter moisturizer for day wear. Just wait for that base to dry before applying primer and you’re good to go with the rest of your makeup routine. I’ve seen fewer scaly patches and I am ready to spend the money to keep these results." —girlygirlinsd

    Price: $32.50 (originally $65)

    9. This bottle of Sephora Collection Supreme Cleansing Oil because even though you might've grown up believing that oil is a huge no-no for your skin, a lightweight oil formula like this one is actually effective for removing dirt, oil, and makeup, and keeping your face moisturized.

    The product in a tall bottle with a pump top

    Promising review: "This product really surprised me! I didn't think it would be an out-of-this-world product but it is everything I was looking for personally in a cleansing oil. I use a double cleansing system so I'm always looking for a cheap first product to take off my makeup (I use micellar water, too) and this is just amazing. It is lightweight, it doesn't feel like straight-up oil, it is soooo moisturizing it makes my skin so soft even after I rinse it off, and the smell is quite nice. I'm definitely going to buy more. If you can get your hands on it, I recommend giving it a try." —Maria91

    Price: $8 (originally $15)

    10. A MakeUp Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth that'll help remove every trace of makeup from your face — even your stubborn eyeliner — with just water and some rubbing. It's even gentle enough for sensitive skin.

    A small pink towel with the product packaging on top of it

    Promising review: "I got this makeup eraser, and I keep calling it the magic eraser because it is magical! I follow the instructions and it works as promised. The first time I used it, I was wowed with my mouth completely opened. I was amazed by how wonderfully it works. Now, removing my makeup is one of my favorite things to do. I don’t have to rub my eyelashes so hard to remove the mascara. And, I don’t end up with red eyes or raw eyeballs." —Blumy

    Price: $10 (originally $20)

    11. This jar of Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Moisturizer for when your dried-out skin needs a pump or two of hydration. It's formulated with fig milk, shea butter, and oat milk to soothe irritated skin, and Argan milk and grapeseed oil to lock in moisture.

    An open jar showing the creamy and thick texture of the moisturizer

    Promising review: "Super moisturizing and super thick. I underestimated this one as being for extremely dry skin and I was worried it would be too dense for my normal skin, but lo and behold it moisturizes my skin in every best way possible. I’m so glad I bought this moisturizer! It spreads nicely and leaves my skin soft and supple. It evens out my skin tone and texture to near baby-soft. And as a bonus, if I miss a day of applying moisturizer, my skin doesn't dry out. So this keeps your skin hydrated for a good while!" —dankmagikgirl

    Price: $13+ (originally $19+; available in two sizes)

    12. A can of shu uemura Micro Fine Finishing Spray to fight humidity and give you a hairdo that can actually last. Plus, it contains UV inhibitors that protect against heat.

    The product in a can on a surface

    Promising review: "Shu uemura always makes very high quality stuff. I love this hairspray — it smells beautiful, is not crunchy, and it tames frizz. The best parts for me is that it has UV shield and is also a heat protectant. I recommend." —kikimick

    Price: $24 (originally $39)

    13. This Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette full of lively pinks, reds, and browns so you can dust on a super ~romantic~ or flirty makeup look.

    Swatches ranging from light pinks, medium pinks, and deep browns across light, medium,  and deep skin tones

    Promising review: "I own and have owned a lot of palettes and this one is in my top three. Great colors. Great color pay off. And great staying power even without a primer. I’m so glad I bought this even when I thought, 'I have enough eye shadow.' I 1000% recommend this one!!" —sylsbag

    Price: $27 (originally $45)

    14. A tin of First Aid Beauty Pharma Oat & Hemp Multi-Fix Salve smooth over a variety of skin emergencies from super chapped lips to rough, dry patches from a healing scrape.

    A small tin with the smooth-looking balm inside

    Promising review: "Look: I just had a god awful allergic reaction to a cosmetic, slapped this bad boy on it, and the redness and stinging was reduced in half an hour. Miracle product, holy grail status. Throw out your Aquaphor and buy this." —Jh5ge

    Price: $25.50 (originally $34)

    15. And this bottle of Kiehl's Calendula Herbal Extract Toner to dab away redness, dullness, and oiliness with regular use. Just apply it after washing your face and get ready for your skin to feel super soothed.

    The product in a tall squeeze bottle

    Promising review: "I've been using this for a week and it really calms my skin. My skin is dry but I don't find this over-drying. My skin looks fresh but also hydrated. What I love about it most is that it's not sticky. Most toners I've used would leave a sticky feeling but after using this, my skin literally feels like nothing is on my face, yet, deep down I felt refreshed. I will definitely continue using it!" —anniekmC

    Price: $30 (originally $40)
