Here's What You Should Be Buying From Sephora Right Now

Sephora has always been our go-to — when we're looking for a restock of our favorite products and when we're ready to branch out and try something new. The store is always stocked with the newest items, the aesthetic is on-point, and it's constantly growing and evolving to keep up with the times. It's cool-girl central and not afraid to show it.

But the main draw of the black-and-white beauty haven are the new products. Even as beauty editors, we regularly check the "Just Arrived" tab on the retailer's site. Each time we hit refresh, we're met with a brand-new slew of eye candy.

To help usher in the new month — and Sephora's latest loot — we, R29's beauty team, are here to tell you what hair, makeup, and skin-care products we're most excited about and why. Check out which ones have us amped, then head over to the site to get the full list of items. We apologize to your wallet in advance.

"When I'm washing my face, I'm strictly on Team Cleansing Oil. It just gets the job done. Wipes tug at my skin, and waters never feel like they get my skin really clean. Apparently, all I needed was a sake bomb for my skin in the form of this cleansing water from Boscia. It not only removes every last trace of makeup, but it makes your skin feel velvety-smooth and doesn't leave behind a sticky or tight feeling. On days when I'm too tired or lazy to double-cleanse, this is my new go-to." — Megan McIntyre, beauty features director

Boscia Sake Cleansing Water, $30, available at Sephora.

"As much as I love eye products, the one problem area I've always had was eye creams. They were just too greasy, and I never felt like they absorbed enough into the skin to do anything significant. This new one from Tata Harper is the exception to the rule: It is heavenly. It goes on like a dream, sinks into the skin, and, like a sprinkling of magic pixie dust, it gives your eyes an immediate brightening boost thanks to a hint of pearlescence — which makes it a perfect daytime pick." — Megan McIntyre

Tata Harper
Illuminating Eye Cream, $95, available at Sephora.

"This isn't new, but it's new to Sephora — and if you haven't tried it yet, you seriously should. As someone with thick, wavy hair, the wrong salt spray quickly turns my hair into a matted, sticky mess. Not this stuff. A few spritzes through wet strands make my hair dry to soft, beachy-wave perfection. Huge bonus: It smells like clean laundry." — Cat Quinn, beauty director

Sachajuan Ocean Mist Spray, $31, available at Sephora.

"This is the date-night fragrance I have been hunting down forever. It's a sexy blend of jasmine, rose, and tonka bean — and when I sprayed it on the nape of my neck (that's my trick, I highly recommend it), sure enough, I got the 'Oh my god, you smell so good' stamp of approval." — Cat Quinn

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum, $114, available at Sephora.

"No matter how many pedicures I get and how much I scrub my heels with a pumice stone, my feet are ALWAYS dry and cracked. Most nights, I slather them in coconut oil or body butter, then put on socks while I watch TV, but I like the idea of this mask way more. It doesn't require socks, which is good because I'm sick of all the sticky, body-butter ones piling up in my laundry basket." — Alix Tunell, senior beauty editor

Sephora Collection
Foot Mask in Lavender, $5, available at Sephora.

"I've never met a Tom Ford scent I didn't love — and this is no exception. Heady florals paired with rich vanilla cream and patchouli? It's so sexy." — Alix Tunell

Tom Ford Orchid Soleil, $120, available at Sephora.

"I have tried, and totally emptied, every other iteration of Miss Dior. While this new version probably won't replace my beloved Miss Dior Cherie — the OG with that delicious caramel-popcorn note — I'm excited to give this flowery version a spritz (or two, or a thousand)." — Jenna Rosenstein, brand experiences senior beauty editor

Dior Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Eau de Parfum, $94, available at Nordstrom.

"I've never been a 'mist person' before I met this amazing spray last month. It's light as water, but leaves skin refreshed and slightly dewy, but not sticky. I spray it over my skin after patting dry after a shower, allow to dry, then start with my routine. Warning: It goes fast. I am already halfway through my bottle and starting to panic..." — Lexy Lebsack, West Coast beauty editor

Skin Inc.
Pure Serum-Mist, $55, available at Sephora.

"I'm a HUGE fan of NARS Laguna — it's my go-to bronzer. But I've always wished it came in an easier-to-use formula, as I tend to apply my face makeup with my hands. Luckily, NARS answered my prayers and threw in a cherry on top. This sculpting duo combines one of the brand's cult-favorite bronzer shades with its matching highlighter for swipe-and-go application. Now I just pop it on, blend with my fingers, and sashay away." — Maria Del Russo, beauty editor

NARS Sculpting Multiple Duo, $39, available at Sephora.

"I was a fan of Marc Jacobs' previous Decadence perfume, and couldn't really figure out how the man could improve upon it. And yet, here we are. Divine Decadence is a delicious mix of fresh and floral fragrances, with notes of Champagne, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and saffron. Bonus: The 'purse' bottle will look amazing on your vanity." — Maria Del Russo

Marc Jacobs Fragrances Divine Decadence, $97, available at Sephora.

"Full disclosure: I'm obsessed with any and everything Sunday Riley. Ever since the brand's Luna oil found its way on my desk last year, I've found myself coveting each subsequent new launch. Good Genes? Love it. Tidal Brightening Cream? I'm already on my second jar. The latest — and maybe greatest — product to win over my affection is the water-gel toner.

"My skin is an oil slick year-round, but it's especially slippery come summer. I've only been using this guy for a couple of weeks now, but I've already seen a noticeable difference in shine. Bentonite clay helps to mop up oil, cucumber green tea to soothe, and witch hazel is for toning and tightening. Those, combined with other oil-busting ingredients, make this a godsend for anyone who finds themselves reaching for blotting papers (or Starbucks napkins) throughout the day." — Taylor Bryant, beauty news editor

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner, $55, available at Sephora.

"A year ago, if I was asked to show someone my lipstick collection, they'd probably find a mishmash of balms and creamy bullets. Today, I wear liquid lipstick almost exclusively. These new lippies by beauty mogul Huda Kattan are excellent choices for those who dislike the feeling of heavy lacquer on their lips. The formula is thin and almost watery, making it easy to trace your lipline. Once these fellas dry, they do not move. But, unlike a lot of liquid lipsticks on the market, they don't end up feeling dry or crusty at the end of the day." — Mi-Anne Chan, beauty writer

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick, $20, available at Sephora.

"The days when I have dull skin are the worst days of my week, so putting together a routine that evens out my skin can be challenging. Sometimes, you don't have time to experiment with different formulations and you just want something that will work. First Aid Beauty delivers just about every time I pick up one of their products, and a go-to kit like this one puts everything you need in one convenient place. Also, the three-pack includes the Body Polish, and that is too good to pass up — it gives you spa results in the shower." — Samantha Sasso, beauty editorial assistant

First Aid Beauty Banish Dull Skin, $40, available at Sephora.

"When I first saw this was launching, I got butterflies in my stomach. I've been wanting to try out stick foundations for years now, but was always too nervous about the formulation. I'm a liquid kind of girl, but knowing how smooth Hourglass products are, I had a feeling this product would make me happy. Truth be told, I'm a little lazy in the morning and I think this will cut my routine time down without sacrificing coverage and finish." — Samantha Sasso

Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick, $46, available at Sephora.

"We already know that Becca products are adored by makeup devotees everywhere, so it’s no surprise that the brand's Jaclyn Hill collection is highly sought-after. The product I’m most excited about is the Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo. The combination of blush and highlight creates infinite possibilities for achieving a natural-looking radiance. It’s a perfect pick for a night out when you want a little extra glow." — Megan Decker, beauty intern

Becca x Jaclyn Hill
Champagne Collection Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo, $38, available at Sephora.
