Sephora carries over 300 brands online and in-store, but its own private label, Sephora Collection, isn't to be overlooked. It launched in 2002 and been responsible for a handful of sleeper successes, like the YouTube-favorite Cream Lip Stain or the brand's line of professional-level brushes.
Considering the retail giant's knack for creating new brands under its Sephora Originals umbrella, it doesn't come as a surprise that Sephora Collection features hundreds of products, many of which boast thousands of four or five star reviews on the site. However, I'll be the first to say that over the years I've been distracted by the sheer quantity of new glitters, liquid lipsticks, and flavored flosses that hit Sephora's New page monthly. I've tried just a handful of the brand's own line, so this month — after receiving dozens of comments recommending I try more of the brand's in-house line — I decided to challenge myself to try more.
I devised an entire skin care and makeup routine just using products from the retailer's private beauty arm in the video above . Which ones are worth shelling out for? You'll have to press play to find out.
