Tata Harper

Regenerating Exfoliating Cleanser

Leave it to Sephora to slip me some samples and get me addicted to something I didn't even know I needed. This is a treatment cleanser which means it's not to be used everyday and only after you've removed your makeup. It polishes your skin to reveal smooth, radiant skin. I like to use this when I've been bad about taking off my makeup or find myself riddled with blemishes.


Oil-In-Stick Lipstick

If you're like me and plagued by dry lips, this lipstick is your new sovereign. It's the perfect combination of tinted balm and stain that nourishes your lips while providing bold color.

Mount Lai

Gua Sha Facial Tool

Gua sha is the new jade roller and if Santa knows what's good for him, this will be in my stocking.


Powder Highlighter in Skinny Dip

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this highlighter. It's creamy, gorgeous, makes you look like a glowing goddess, and if you can't see me air kissing right now please imagine it. It's spectacular and well-priced. 10/10!

First Aid Beauty

Facial Radiance Pads

I've been using these facial radiance pads in the mornings instead of washing my face for over a year now, and my skin has never been so clear, glowy, and moisturized! It doesn't strip your natural oils like face wash does, but it refreshes the skin by lightly exfoliating, toning, and brightening. The best part? It takes 2 seconds, is so easy to travel with, and requires no rinsing off – in other words, you can sleep in an extra 5 minutes, knowing your skincare routine is taken care of!

Isle of Paradise

Self Tanning Drops

There's a reason these self tanning drops are rarely in stock. Adding a few drops to my usual moisturizer (you don't have to break up with your normal body lotion to get a great glow!) leaves me with natural, sunkissed color and absolutely no orange tones, streaks, or smells. My favorite part is that the formula is totally clean and organic, meaning I can (and do!) put it on every other day without feeling guilt, knowing it's nourishing my skin while it's giving me that glow. Who says tans aren't for winter!?


Coconut Deodorant

As a simultaneous beauty junkie and health nut, I've been both reluctant and anxious to switch to a clean deodorant. I know I need to (all that aluminum!!), but desperately depend on my deodorant to leave me smell and pit-stain free (sorry in advance for the TMI). I was so pleasantly surprised with how well my body adjusted to this coconut-oil based option. Not only does the moisturizing formula soothe and prevent razor burns, but I've been stank free every day (gross topic but you get it, right?).

Living Proof

Perfect Hair Day Body Builder

I never thought a hairspray could affect the look of my hair so much. After going through bottle after bottle of hairsprays that made my hair look flat and crunchy, I picked this up on recommendation from an employee in store. My fine hair has never looked better. It's kind of a volumizer, texture spray, and hairspray in one — it locks in your style but adds a matte finish and a lot of volume wherever you put it. It's made of a powder (kind of like dry shampoo!) instead of a liquid, so it plumps up my strands and adds hold like nothing else I've ever tried.


Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set

The Fenty Gloss Bomb basically started a frenzy in the beauty world for better gloss formulas that work with all skin tones, don't get caught in your hair, and make your lips look plump and hydrated. It's the OG gloss in my opinion, and you can bet I bring it with me almost every time I leave my house. This set gives you five shades in mini sizes (OK, but who is going through a full lip gloss anyway?!) that look good on everyone and work for all different occasions. It's already a great deal too, so getting an extra bit off makes it so worth it.


Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation

With the impending doom of dry, winter skin looming over our heads, finding a foundation that makes you look alive (much less, hydrated) becomes the ultimate goal. This water-based foundation has become a new favorite in my collection for my driest of days. It glides on the skin and blends in so easily because of how liquid-y the texture is, but it doesn't settle into fine lines either. This has a light coverage, but I've been mixing it with my other favorite foundations to amp up the coverage when I need it!



Too Faced

Better Than Sex Mascara

This best-selling mascara will have your lashes looking darker, longer, thicker, and multiplied.

Benefit Cosmetics

Hoola Matte Bronzer

The bronzer makeup artists refer to as universally flattering—what more could you need?

Charlotte Tilbury
