Stepping into Sephora can be overwhelming – it’s easy to walk in and not know where to begin, or fall in love with a rosy pink blush only to look at the price tag and see that it’s upwards of $40. Check out our favorite products sold at Sephora that won’t break the bank.

This rich cleanser by Ole Henriksen is only $22. I absolutely love this brand which is known for their effective skincare products. This cleanser receives great reviews from its users, and gets extra points for being paraben and sulfate free. The cleanser also contains Vitamin C – great for combatting signs of aging.

This gentle, soap-free cleanser by Korres is $21. This cleanser gets the job done while leaving the skin moist and hydrated. It leaves out unwanted ingredients and contains milk proteins, which is what leaves you with that moisture.

Despite the title, Wild Rose Daily Brightening and Refining Buff Cleanser by Korres is more of a gentle exfoliant, rather than a cleanser, with rice grains, cherry stone, and sugar-citrus extracts.

This dense scrub by Ole Henriksen works as a great exfoliant and contains multiple attractive ingredients such as Walnut powder, Aloe Vera gel, and Chamomile.

This lip tint from Tarte is loved in the Pampadour office because it provides both color and moisture. Apply it like a lip balm – the sheer color provides just the right pop of pink.

These creamy oils by Josie Maran are also admired in the Pampadour office. These can be used for both cheeks and lips. We love this product because it is extremely moisturizing and keeps your lips hydrated.

This liner by Kat Von D is fantastic because of how easy it is to use! The liner goes on well and easily, and the color is strong. One swipe is all you need to achieve the perfect cat eye.

 This eyeliner by Urban Decay comes in multiple shades and colors. The eyeliner lasts ridiculously long, doesn’t smudge and is super easy to use.

I’ve always been a fan of Nars makeup and I feel these eye shadows come in just the right colors.

 This primer by Urban Decay will change your eye makeup forever! You will see noticeable changes with the use of this primer such as longer lasting eye makeup and stronger vibrancy.
