Beauty Challenge: Your Sweet 15 (Favorite Products)!

Here's the thing: I work for a beauty company, so I tend to get stuff for free. This is not a boast (that would be totally rude), I'm telling you this to let you know that when I DO spend my money on beauty products (which I still do...A LOT), it's to buy things that I truly love. And after working at Sephora for a while, I find myself buying the same things over and over. Let's call them my Sweet 15 (sound familiar? :smileyhappy:).


Today's Beauty Challenge is a doozy: What are YOUR Sweet 15 products? It seems like a high number, but I actually had to cut some things off of my list! So beauty junkies like yourself should have no problem. I broke mine up into my top 3 categories: Color, Skincare and Nail. You can organize yours however you'd like.


Show & Tell in the comments (I'm super excited about this one)!

15. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy (at least for Summer, this is my fav fragrance!)

@colorobsession +1 for the Naked Palette! It would have ended up on this list but I've only had to buy it once. :smileyhappy:


Of the items that I just love, 15 would be a small number. If this is 15 of the items that sephora carries this I would still be a hard task....just not as hard as favorite products overall.

1. Clinique Even better liquid foundation

2. Clinique even better dark spot corrector

3. Stila lip glaze in guava, blush, and dark berry

4. Bite beauty lipstick

5. Bite beauty manuka honey lip glosses

6. Illamasqua's cream blushes in brazen, betray, and libido

7. Guerlain lipstick

8. Josie maran coconut gel blushes in pink paradise and honey

9. Stila eyeliner in periwinkle

10. Clarasonic Mia 

11. Nars eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte

12. Nars lip gloss in scandal and Angelika

13. Guerlain light sheer terracotta bronzing powder

14. OCC lip tar


15. Occ concealer

@ashhay - The new Josie Maran gel blushes already made it in the top 15? Are they awesome? Dying to try.


You know, I was considering putting the Josie Maran blush on my list, but since I've owned it less than a month I thought maybe it was too soon lol. It really is wonderful though! It's the perfect blush for spring and summer in my humble opinion. @candacebt, you definitely have to try it out at some point!


I'm more of a skincare junkie so, non-skincare, let's see.....

  1. Hourglass no.28 primer serum
  2. Clinique Stay Matte powder
  3. Fresh Sugar lip treatment SPF15
  4. Alterna Kendi Bamboo oil for hair
  5. Ouidad Bay Leaf exfoliating scalp/hair treatment


Skincare's gonna be hard to narrow down:

  1. Koh Gen Do cleansing water
  2. Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser
  3. Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion
  4. Philosophy microdelivery dual phase
  5. Origins Charcoal mask
  6. Fresh Rose mask
  7. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum
  8. Origins No Puffery eye mask
  9. Caudalie beauty elixir
  10. Jack Black lip SPF25

There's more skincare, but I shall refrain from writing out 50+ items. =)
