Sephora Brands You Must Know About

Published April 8, 2021

Since its development in the 1970s, Sephora has risen to become more than just a successful chain of cosmetics stores, it’s a part of a global zeitgeist and has helped us understand beauty and skincare in a way that celebrates the beauty of being melanin-rich; Black is truly beautiful.

Sephora’s signature shopfronts in countries all over the globe are synonymous with style, beauty, elegance, and finding the beauty inside.

I admit, that I am one of the enlisted fans who frequently visit the store, and before COVID-19, I’d leave the store with samples of brands like Nars, Marc Jacobs, and HourGlass, which all lead to purchases of the aforementioned brands. Except for the Holiday Sephora Mascara gift box (one of the best values, ever) — I’d never been tempted to try their make-up or skincare products, and I have missed out over the years because of that choice.


Here is a list of Sephora products that I have tried and highly recommend.

SEPHORA — Gentle Eye & Lip Makeup Remover
I can’t believe that I didn’t know about this vegan product before. It works for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin. With 95 percent of the ingredients from natural origin, this gentle and makeup remover with chamomile from natural origin, removes makeup effectively from the eyes and lips, and is even waterproof, leaving skin soothed. Its refreshing and unique gel formula is incredibly gentle on the skin and perfectly suited to delicate areas of the face (eyes and lips). It soothes, hydrates, and calms the skin.

It has eco-design packaging with a bottle made of 100 percent recycled plastic (excluding cap and label). This product is manufactured in France by a company with over 100 employees that has signed the United Nations Global Compact, encouraging businesses to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies.

SEPHORA — SCLEAN foundation brush
The perfect travel foundation brush that evenly buffs makeup onto skin, achieving a light but buildable coverage. This brush‘s circular head and dense bristles help you apply makeup and create a flawless-looking complexion. It‘s made with soft, synthetic, vegan bristles and without plastics or metals. Its small silicone handle also reduces waste. This brush works best with liquid and cream formulas and pairs perfectly with Sephora Collection‘s Clean Glowing Skin Foundation.
