We Asked These 8 Sephora Employees Their Go-To Beauty Products And Here’s What They Said…
When it comes to the best beauty products and the biggest selection, most people tend to head to Sephora. They have everything. So when it comes to finding the most sought-after, popular products that you must have in your makeup bag, who better to ask than the employees with first-hand experience with every product available.
We wanted to know which products every woman should have in their artillery. These Sephora employees gave us the best products for better lashes, skin, lips and more!
Katie Esposito talked about this first product, The Glow Fairy Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boosts. “This is by far our favorite choice when it comes to anti-wrinkle products for the eyes to help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and gives your eyes a more youthful look. I first used them when a friend gave me the secret 50% discount code SECRET50 for their site, and since every single one of my co-workers rave about.The Glow Fairy’s Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boosts are highly-condensed eye masks you wear for 10 to 15 minutes twice a week. They come packed with a handful of effective ingredients (including 24k gold, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and squalane) to help boost your under eye’s moisture and collagen production to help lessen the appearance of crows feet, fine lines, and under eye bags. Highly recommended!"
2. LIAISON LASH BOND
The second product recommended by a Sephora employee was Liaison Lash Bond, a growth serum that helps build stronger lashes. Molly Morrell, a Los Angeles employee explained, “Liaison has it all, a good value, safe ingredients, and (brace yourself) it works! I first tried Liaison when I received the 50% off code SECRET50. This was before we had it in the store. I used it for six weeks and had some of the longest, most luscious lashes I’ve ever seen. I was so surprised. When we got it in the store, every employee started using it. The ingredients are natural and don’t cause irritation or burning, and the instructions are straightforward and simple. It’s really the best of everything packed into one product. Effectiveness, safety, and value all rolled into one.”
3. LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK
Store Manager Wendy Brennen loved Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask. “It doesn't matter how much lipstick you put on, if your lips are dried and crack, people will be able to tell. And don’t even think about kissing someone! Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask helps take care of that by helping repair and moisture your lips overnight. It’s like a super-powered lip balm that will not only protect your lips but help them stay healthy. It’s really a great choice.”
4. THE NO.3 HAIR PERFECTOR BY OLAPLEX
“Whether you think so or not, almost everyone could use some hair repair.” Sales associate Gina Ginsberg told us. “Our hair is so sensitive and even if you take amazing care of it, something like Olaplex’s No. 3 Hair Perfector will still help. It’s the smoothest, best hair conditioner and repairer ever. You can use it every day or like, once a month, either way you’d be doing a HUGE service to your hair.”
5. THE ALL NIGHT LONG-LASTING MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY BY URBAN DECAY
“What’s the point of amazing look if your makeup smears, right?” That’s what sales associate Catherine Lily wants to know. “I recommend this to everyone who shops at the store. I’m like chasing people down trying to get them to buy this it’s so good. Urban Decay’s All Night Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray helps keep makeup on and looking perfect all night. It lasts up to 16 hours, which is incredible. I used this at a summer wedding and I was the only one at the reception without running eyeliner and smudgy foundation. Absolute best!”
While Sephora recommended some great products, we wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who interviewed the Sephora employees and helped create the rankings list to find out why The Glow Fairy Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boosts were such a hit and how they worked for her... Stephanie tells the story
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of wrinkle patches or creams. There’s a lot of brands out there claiming to totally get rid of your wrinkles and crows feet, but most don’t. I’ve had too many friends tricked into buying some wild cream just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But then I told my best friend, who I trust with my life, about Sephora employees raving over Glow Fairy Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boosts. She immediately ran to her bathroom to show me the box. She was so excited. She said she had been using them for 3 weeks and they were making a big difference. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me her before and afters and I was stunned. Week by week, I could see her crows feet diminishing. I begged her to let me borrow her Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boosts. Instead, she gave me the secret 50% off code, SECRET50. I ordered my own Boosts immediately.
I received the package within two days and started using them that night. The application is very simple. Each box comes with curved masks that wrap around your eyes. You pull the patches from their sheets and place under the curve of your eyes. You're instructed to do this twice a week. Of course, I woke up the next day expecting a miracle… but alas, it takes longer than that to see results.
So while I waited, I looked into the science of Glow Fairy. I wanted to know more about the ingredients the Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boosts used and how they worked. Here's what I found out:
24K GOLD: That's right, GOLD. Surprisingly, gold is very good for the skin. It can help reduce puffiness and inflammation in the skin. But most importantly it's an amazing line of defense against free radicals that cause skin damage and wrinkles.
HYALURONIC ACID: Wrinkles are caused by two issues, the first being lack of hydration. Your skin can improve tremendously so long as it's hydrated properly. And that's where hyaluronic acid comes in. Naturally found in the body, it helps retain moisture and keep the skin highly moisturized for fresher, younger looking skin.
COLLAGEN: The second cause of wrinkles is lack of collagen. Collagen is what helps your skin feel plump. The trouble is, the older we get, the less collagen our body produces, so we need to make up for the lack of it. The highly concentrated ingredient is a sure way to help provide the much-needed collagen to your skin.
SQUALANE: Filled with anti-oxidants, squalane is the cherry on top with both hydrating elements and anti-free radical defenses.
After about 3 weeks is when I began to notice the fine lines and my crow's feet begin to diminish. I was so amazed!
Since then, I’ve continued to apply the Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boosts twice a week and have seen better and better results. The time and money I save applying and buying concealers and makeup is phenomenal.
I’ve been converted into an Anti-Wrinkle Eye Boost believer, and hope you will, too.
