Sephora AU Products Actually Worth the Money | Makeup, Skincare

We all want to know what products are really worth our hard earned dolla, so I decided to bring you my guide of top picks from Sephora AU! These are products that I have tried myself and would buy in future (depending on my income, since some of these are a bit pricey).

sephora au top picks


Let’s get real, it’s all about the makeup for me.

sephora au

Nude Stix Lip and Cheek Pencil in Mystic $35 – You’ve heard my rave about this one before and I still love it! Since I prefer more long lasting lipsticks, I only use this as a blush. It is the perfect shade and blends out flawlessly with a beauty blender. I use it when I want a natural, no-fuss and trustworthy blush!

sephora au

Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Clay Palette $67 – This palette is what dreams are made of, fo’ real. Not the best quality eyeshadows I’ve ever tried, but the shades, the set up, somehow it all just works! For some reason I’m always gravitating towards this palette. With three looks already set out for you, it’s my no-fail eyeshadow palette. The shades blend well enough, the shimmers are pigmented enough (when you use your fingers to apply). I really love this and would highly recommend for beginners.

sephora au

Beauty Blender Original $30 – not exactly ‘makeup’ but boy has the Beauty Blender changed my makeup game! I’ve had mine for two years (although I hear you’re suppose to replace them every 3 months, whoops!) and it’s only just starting to break (I just put in an order for some new ones).

sephora au

Studio 10 Plumping Blush Glow-Plexion$43 – I know what you’re thinking, “I didn’t know Studio 10 did makeup?” But alas, this is not the Studio 10 us Australians are thinking of. Studio 10 is from the UK, and is not affiliated with the Australian Daytime Television show, LOL. This is the perfect no-makeup makeup. Gorgeous natural glow for all skin-tones.



sephora au

Caolion Hot and Cool Pore Pack Duo* $46 – Golly, this is such a great product! I have oily/combination skin and my biggest concern when applying base makeup is skin texture. This is a two step mask that works wonders at minimising the appearance of my pores and making my skin smooth, perfect for makeup application. You can keep feel the mask working when you use it, it gets very hot on the skin, so I wouldn’t recommend for sensitive skin. Quite frankly, I think this is a bargain at $46.

sephora au

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask $38 – This is the best lip treatment I have ever used. If you suffer from flaky, dry lips or are a matte lipstick junkie, this is for you! I use it every single night, like I would a lip balm. The formula is gloopy and sticks to your lips well. The tube has legitimately lasted me years, highly recommend! This lip mask’s only downfall is how darn difficult it is to get the product out of the tube. I usually sit it underneath me in bed, on my electric blanket for a few minutes to warm it up before applying.

sephora au

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel 125ml $49 – Although I am of the oily/combo skin type, I had a couple dry areas around my nostrils. Most hydrating products when applied there, cause really uncomfortable stinging. Thankfully Clinique make this amazing moisturiser that is sensitive enough for those pesky dry patches around my nose and works really effectively! No most foundation/concealer bunching up around there.


There are literally thousands of products sold at Sephora AU that I am yet to try, so let me know the products you think are worth the money in the comments please!

    Ah I so want that Tarte palette, I have Tartelette and love it – the only issue is that they are all matte so I need to get some shimmer happening!

      I still remember my first trip to Sephora when it came to Sydney. It was amazing!! You need to go sometime!! How far away from one are you?

    Beauty blender is certainly worth the money. I don’t really know what’s at the Aus sephora as I refuse to buy from them with all the crappy customer service experiences so many people have had lol but I do buy from the american one and Becca and KVD are my fave brands there.

    I can never live without my Beautyblender and always have at least three backups! How did you get yours to last that long? Mine barely make it to six months (possibly because I wash them after each use).

      I do wash mine after every use, but I don’t wear makeup everyday, so perhaps that’s it? I only wear makeup like once a week in normal life :). But totally agree it’s a must have!

    The Tartelette In Bloom palette looks amazing! Those shades are my cup of tea and I’d probably get daily use of it.

    Am yet to give in to the Beauty Blender but if they last as long as you say then it must be worth trying!
