My favorite multitasking app

This post is sponsored by Sephora.

It’s no secret that I love trying beauty products. I typically approach a new item with a bit of skepticism but also with hope that it will do what it says it’s going to do! I’ve found some products that are hyped up in the review section or from other beauty bloggers just don’t work for me, and others that fly under the radar that are game-changers in my makeup bag!

I thought I’d run through 4 products that absolutely lived up to the hype for me. They are products that I think everyone would love using, and I always have them in my makeup bag!

But first! I have exciting information! Sephora is running a Beauty Insider Appreciation Event right now which is a GREAT time to stock up on your favorites (or new products!) since you’ll have a discount code to use! If you aren’t signed up as a Beauty Insider Member take a moment to do that right now and you’ll be able to get 10% off online and in store during the duration of the event. In fact, you can get 10% off in store as much as you want during the event, but it’s only available for a one time use online. You can find all the codes you need for the event at the bottom of this post.

This event is happening to celebrate some fun changes they are making to the program to include more rewards, more points and more choices.

If you happen to be in the market for a beauty product that will blow you away, I have 4 I’m sharing with you today that are makeup game changers. Watch the video to hear why I love these products so much, and how I use them.

  1. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (I wear shade 5)
  2. Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eye
  3. Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara
  4. Becca Soft Lighting Powder in Golden Hour

Rouge members get early access to the Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation event from August 24 through August 30th. Then it opens up to Rouge, VIB and Beauty Insiders on August 30th, running through September 4th. Rouge Members must use code YESROUGE for 20% off, VIB members use code YESVIB for 15% off, and Beauty Insiders use code YESINSIDER for 10% off! You can click here to sign up to be a Beauty Insider Member if you aren’t already.

I rounded up a few other game changer products below to consider if you are shopping during the event! These are not only things I love, but they seriously perform as good as they claim they will.

Loved this! Can I ask – what under eye concealer do you use? I think I’m going to go buy all four of these products asap! 🙂

I just realized I need to refill a few items in my beauty bag, including a new blow dryer (May my current one RIP haha) so these codes are perfect timing! Thank you!
Happy Friday! xAllie

I am hooked on the under eye brightening powder…It’s a must have for me now. I decided to try it out after I saw you use it for your five minute make up look on Instagram TV. I would say that it’s definitely worth the price. You don’t use very much of the time so it’s gonna last forever!

I would love to know where you bought your pink loopy phone case. I didn’t see it on the loopy website. Thanks!

Love that Giorgio Armani foundation! It’s one of the best!

Hi Kate!!

When do you apply the Becca Soft Light Blurring Setting Powder? After you’ve finished all of your makeup (Foundation, blush, bronzer, etc.). Or immediately after your foundation to set it??

Emily says · 08.24.18

Love the shirt you are wearing in the video with the ruffles! Where is it from?

Amanda says · 08.24.18

Please help – I want the EXACT haircut you have in this picture, but I don’t know how to describe it! Can you tell me? I feel like you’ve described it before, but I can’t remember what you called it!

Bonnie says · 08.24.18

Hi Kate! Great video as always. I was wondering what palette your eyeshadows are from – they look amazing! Thank you!!

Amanda Chase says · 08.24.18

Beautiful new video format/style! I love the multi-angle shots and the close up product shots!

Samantha says · 08.25.18

Love these products! I want to try that Becca powder…can you tell me what brush that is that you are using? It looks heavenly! Thanks! ☺️

Erin says · 08.26.18

I’m devoted to Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara or Chanel Le Volume – but I’m going to give the Hourglass a shot! Thanks for the rec!

Brittany says · 08.26.18

What’s your recommendation on a makeup brush cleaner? I’ve searched the site but can’t find anything in the past 5 years. Thank you!

Juli Ann Darnell says · 08.27.18

Hi Kate!!! I am dealing with Melasma from pregnancy! What havr you found to help?? Facial wash? Brightening products?? Thanks!!!

Jessica says · 09.10.18

I think I remember you recently tried the shape tape foundation. What did you think of it?

Kate says · 09.10.18

It’s been awhile since I’ve used it, I don’t remember loving it–I think it felt a bit heavy for me?

Erin says · 10.05.18

HI!!! I can’t wait to try these products!! Perfect timing too since I’ve been wanting to get these types of products.
Did you say what brush you are using to put the Becca finishing powder on? I need a big fluffy one like yours!! Thanks!
