Sephora Haul |Updating Makeup for Fall

Sephora is one of my go-to beauty stores to shop, which is why I went there to update my makeup bag for fall with a mini Sephora beauty haul of some makeup essentials. I purchased a few specific fall makeup items that have been on my radar like the NEW Becca Cosmetics Jaclyn Hill Champagne splits, NARS Eyeshadow Duo, and a couple of must-have lipsticks that scream the weather is shifting. Plus, I picked up my Sephora birthday gift (heck-yes I did) and scored on a few extra makeup items that my Sephora points gave me.

Sephora Haul for Fall

Update your beauty bag with these makeup essentials

Check out this Sephora mini haul with just a few fall makeup essentials to update your beauty bag.

Makeup shopping is one of my favorite things to do of all time. Walking into Sephora is the type of giddy that I felt like as a kid walking into a toy shop or candy store. Anyone feel me on that? It’s just fun. Makeup shopping for the essentials, checking out the hottest new makeup items,  and breathing in the aroma of cosmetics is just fun (I might be the only one that does that last part).

Alright, here is my Mini Sephora Haul with my fall makeup must-haves, a little review, and a few tips and tricks to make them work for you!

Sephora Haul Pick 1: Becca Cosmetics Champagne Splits

Blush + Highlighter


All of the beauty bloggers across the world (perhaps some exaggeration…but) have been melting down with excitement over the NEW Becca Cosmetics Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits. What I love about the Becca highlighter is how smooth and buttery it is when you touch it. It glides on the skin and has tons of pigment. Plus the Champagne highlighting shade is stunning and would look good on so many skin types.

As far as the blush portion of this highlighter/blush duo from Becca Cosmetics, it’s a fabulous fall color to incorporate into your beauty bag. It’s a light rose/peach shade that will give your cheeks the pop of color it needs without being overwhelming.

Price $38.00 found at Sephora HERE

Makeup Artist Tip: Use the highlighter to non-tour or strobe your face. The best areas to apply are above the brow, above the cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, upper lip, and center on the chin. Make sure to blend so you don’t look like a disco ball. A little goes a very long way.


Sephora Haul Pick 2: NARS Kuala Lumpur Eyeshadow Duo


I spotted the NARS Kuala Lumpur Eyeshadow Duo the literal second I walked into Sephora. It was on the display for fall actually, so I needed to take it home with me. I am loving the burgundy eyeshadow trend happening right now, and the colors in this eyeshadow duo are perfect to get the look.

On the left is a shimmery pale pink eyeshadow shade that’s great for a basic makeup look or to highlight next to the burgundy color. Both of these shades are creamy, highly pigmented and perfect for your fall makeup update. Every eyeshadow I have ever tried from NARS is a massive win; you can’t go wrong..and plus, the packaging is sophisticated and actually makes you feel like somewhat of a grown up.

Price: Found at Sephora for $35.00 HERE

Makeup Artist Tip: After you apply your eyeshadow primer, gently tap the burgundy shade on to your full eyelid and then go over it with the light pink shade. Blend it into the contour of your eyes, add some mascara, and you have the perfect everyday makeup look for fall. 

Sephora Haul Pick #3: Bite Beauty Lipstick in Thistle


I hate to admit this, but Mauve is back my friends, and this Bite Beauty lipstick shade called Thistle will make you gush. I have been known to hate on Mauve lipstick ONLY because it’s the world go-to for comfort in the lip department. It’s like people get stuck on this shade and then never venture out. But, this is actually a gorgeous mauve lipstick for that 90’s makeup trend that is taking over the beauty world (I am currently wearing a choker and considering wearing a freaking onesie snap crotch as a 33-year-old).

Well anyways, while Sephora hauling, I stopped by the Bite Beauty section and did an actual double-take of this lipstick product. It was at that moment that I knew I would be buying mauve lipstick for the first time since high school. So, mauve lipstick friends, this lipstick isn’t even an option, you just have to buy it. End of story.

Price: $28.00 at Sephora found HERE

Makeup Artist Tip: Just wear the lipstick. 


Sephora Haul Pick 4: Urban Decay Stark Naked Nude Lipstick


I recently included the Urban Decay Stark Naked lipstick in my shop the top nude lipstick for fall post here because it is gorgeous color. Everyone needs a go-to nude lipstick for fall, and this is the one I landed on. I like it because it doesn’t lack color, it’s not going to wash my out, and it’s very pigmented. Plus, it’s hydrating and doesn’t suck the life out of my lips which is an important thing as we head into cooler weather.

When I showed this on Coffee with Kendra’s Sephora Haul Live Tutorial, it was a major hit. So, if you are looking for a beautiful new nude lipstick shade, this is the one I will be wearing on repeat this fall season.

Price: $17 found at Sephora HERE

Makeup Artist Tip: This nude lipstick shade is also beautiful as a cream blush. So, pop some on your lips and your cheeks for an easy out-the-door look.
