Sephora is THE place to go for makeup, I mean the options are practically endless whether you are shopping online or in store! Though, with so many options it can sometimes feel like there's almost too much to choose from. Especially with makeup being pretty pricey, it can be a little overwhelming trying to find the best deal or bang for your buck. Luckily, we've found go to options that are makeup staples as well as incredible products that are worth the crazy splurge if you want to spend some major coin.
What Are You Looking For?

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation // $49.00
The Born This Way foundation has a cult following in the beauty community, and for good reason. The mid range priced foundation has amazing coverage yet still maintains a skin like look for makeup lovers who want full coverage without looking cakey.
Dior Airflash Foundation // $78.00
If you're looking to spend more coin but also get your money's worth, the Dior Airflash is a MUST. This foundation is definitely pricey, but trust me it's worth it. Somehow this stuff supplies you with the perfect coverage yet looks unbelievably skin like. The foundation has been on the market for a while and I have yet to have tried anything like it, so if you've got the chance to splurge, this is the foundation to spend some major coin on!

Tarte Aqua Concealer // $31.00
While the Tarte Shape Tape gets a crazy amount of hype, the Aqua Concealer is significantly better. While shape tape is a nightmare for people with dry undereyes, the aqua concealer supplies amazing coverage and hydration so you're under eyes don't look like they haven't seen moisturizer in 4 months.
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer // $58.00
If you've got eye bags that need some serious investing in, Kevyn Aucoin is your guy. While the price for this concealer is high, keep in mind that you need the smallest amount of product because it is practically pure pigment. This stuff covers even the darkest under eyes and if applied with a damp beauty sponge it won't get dry or cake up!

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette // $59.00
You've probably already heard of this palette or own it, if you don't you seriously need to hop on it! These staple colours are shades that everyone should have in their collection. The blendability and pigmentation of the shadows is the perfect balance for a beginner and an intermediate makeup lover who wants an easy makeup look.
Viseart Eyeshadow Palette // $100.00
Viseart eyeshadows are definitely an investment, but there definitely aren't any shadows out there on the market right now that hold a candle to these. Specially crafted in Europe, these shadows have the best blendability, pigmentation and wear time on the market and are extremely user friendly.
For 'lips' click 'Next.'
Too Faced La Créme Lipsticks // $26.00
MAC lipsticks tend to be overhyped, and quite honestly between them and Too Faced's La Créme lippies, I'd choose the latter. The La Créme formula is unbelievably hydrating so you don't have to worry about butthole lips. Plus there is a great range of nudes to choose from!
YSL Lip Tint // $42.00
When you are looking at YSL you basically have to expect a crazy price point, but for lip tints the $42 price tag seems extreme, even for YSL. Though, if you do want a lip tint that is going to hydrate your lips and actually stay on all day, this is what you should pick up. Plus the packaging is gorgeous.
For 'brows' click 'Next.'
Anastasia Brow Definer // $30.00
Much like the Chocolate Bar palette from Too Faced, the Brow Definer from ABH has a crazy cult following. While the product does what it's supposed to do well, I definitely do think it's a bit overhyped for what it is. Plus I find with this product specifically it is way too easy to accidentally get sharpie/cartoon looking eyebrows if you aren't paying full attention.
Dior Brow Styler // $36.00
This isn't too far off the price of the Brow Definer and I find that both the shade range and the product itself in the Dior brow pencil are way better. The shades for the Brow Styler are a lot closer to most people's natural brow colour, running slightly more ashy than the ABH line. As well this pencil isn't nearly as pigmented, so making mistakes isn't as detrimental as it is with the Brow Definer!
