Alas, the holiday season is over. People are putting away wrapping paper and bows, clearing away confetti and champagne glasses, and tossing the final few stale desserts from the fridge. Between considering our resolutions and goals (and catching up with a mountainous amount of work after holiday vacation), we're checking in on the first Sephora sale of the New Year. Is it just us or is a Sephora sale the best way to kick off 2018, especially considering that the sale comprises two buzzy beauty brands and five trendy products?
Yes, that's right. This week's sale features two brands in particular—Urban Decay and Boscia. One is a Byrdie favorite makeup brand and the other is a Byrdie favorite skincare brand. In other words, this sale combination is perfect for refreshing our bathroom vanities and our makeup bags. To see all five products that are currently discounted up to 50% off, keep scrolling.
This fan-favorite lip pencil is creamy and comfortable to wear. The brand also promises that it lasts for a full 24 hours. Line around the perimeter of your mouth to shape and prime your lips before applying color.
Another lip product from Urban Decay, this one is a special-effects topcoat. Swipe it on after applying your favorite lip color to customize the color and add a metallic, shimmer, or glitter finish. We love darker lip colors for winter, so our current favorite shade is this glimmering berry one called Bruja.
This moisturizer is a combination of a gel and a cream moisturizer that has been swirled together in a pretty pink jar. Both the gel and cream hydrate for long-lasting moisture. They're both also composed of camellia oil, which is a traditional Japanese skincare ingredient.
This treatment water is infused with sake, which increases the absorption of other skincare products. Apply this to your skin after cleansing and before serums, essences, or moisturizers to boost their effectiveness. It also does a little treating of its own with hydrating and brightening vitamins and minerals.
This sake cleansing water works like a micellar water to hydrate and cleanse without any rinsing needed. The milky, sake-infused formula provides vitamins and nutrients to the skin, while ridding it from impurities. Simply swipe it over the skin on a cotton pad to reap all the benefits.
Now that you're updated on Sephora's Weekly Wow sale, move on to other priorities like mascara. See the best curling mascaras for Insta-worthy lashes.
