The Top Five-Star Sephora Products at a Glance


Creamiest Concealer

1. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer


  • Five-Star Reviews: 8,000+
  • Why We Like It: 30 shades, medium coverage, 16-hour wear
  • Who It's For: dry skin, acne-prone skin, dark circles

This creamy concealer uses mineral pigments to cover any blemishes and brighten your under-eye shadows, while the botanical blend (aka grapeseed oil, magnolia bark extract and vitamin E) hydrates and strengthens your skin. According to buyers, a little goes a long way and stays on your skin all day without creasing.

Notable Review: “This is a nice versatile concealer that's neither too thin nor too thick. It works great covering under eye darkness [as] well as discoloration elsewhere and blends quite well if your skin is hydrated before application but not overly so.”

Most Pigmented Blush

2. Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

Rare Beauty

  • Five-Star Reviews: 3,000+
  • Why We Like It: 13 shades, available in matte and dewy finishes
  • Who It's For: all skin tones

PureWow Assistant Sales and Deals Editor Destinee Scott confirms that the smallest dot of this weightless liquid blush is plenty for an effortless flush to your cheeks. Even better, it's available in matte and luminous finishes in 13 shades.

Notable Review: "This stuff is so pigmented, literally one dot on the apple of your cheeks is all you need. It blends beautifully and can be built up if you want a more intense color payoff.”

Most Volumizing Mascara

3. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Too Faced

  • Five-Star Reviews: 8,000+
  • Why We Like It: 2 shades, volumizing formula, cruelty-free
  • Who It's For: N/A

Per thousands of reviews on Sephora, this mascara lives up to the hype. Multiple users claim it's the best mascara they’ve ever used, adding that it lengthens and separates their lashes like no other and never clumps. We have the formula to thank for that. Featuring acaia senegal tree extra (to set volume), film-forming polymers (to lock curls in place) and collagen (for the much-need length). Plus, many reviewers note that it has way more lasting power than other brands.

Notable Review: “Great mascara paired with a good eyelash curler, it doesn’t clump or make my eyelashes look like spider legs. The brush isn’t flimsy, and the bristles make it very easy to get that corner part of your eyelashes. The best mascara I’ve tried and will definitely be buying it again.”

Shiniest Lip Gloss

4. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

Fenty Beauty

  • Five-Star Reviews: 9,000+
  • Why We Like It: 7 shades, Black-owned, shimmer finish
  • Who It's For: all skin tones.

It’s no secret that Fenty Beauty’s products are popular, but Gloss Bomb takes things to another level, as evidenced by its 9,000+ five-star reviews and counting. The Rihanna-owned brand set out to make this gloss universally flattering on all skin tones, and according to buyers, that mission was accomplished. Plus, the brand states the formula is ultra-hydrating and not sticky at all. Yup, sounds like a winner to us.

Notable Review: “A dream gloss! I’ve had mine forever and still have plenty of product. Goes a long way and lasts well for a gloss. Love the packaging and applicator, and the gloss is high shine and pillowy.”

Smudge-Proof Brow Pencil

5. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

Anastasia Beverly Hills

  • Five-Star Reviews: 10,000+
  • Why We Like It: 12 shades, natural finish
  • Who It's For: all hair colors

Behold, the secret to a your-brows-but-better look. Just use the retractable pencil to make short, hairlike strokes, then brush through each brow to blend things out a bit, and boom, you’re done filling in your eyebrows in about 30 seconds. The smudge-proof formula stays put all day long, so you’re never in need of a touch-up.

Notable Review: “I seriously don’t know what I was doing until I found this. It’s not waxy or cakey, it’s smooth, blends easily, doesn’t fade or smear when my bangs touch it and the mechanical tip allows me to build [coverage] how I want it.”

Best Lightweight Foundation

6. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation

Estée Lauder

  • Five-Star Reviews: 4,000+
  • Why We Like It: 56 shades, 24-hour wear, full coverage
  • Who It's For: oily and combination skin, hyperpigmentation, dull skin

Ask any of the 4,000 five-star reviewers why they love this foundation and they'll likely rave about its full coverage formula and longevity. The liquid foundation is easy to blend and it leaves a natural-looking, matte finish. Plus, those with oily skin appreciate that it keeps their shine in check.

Notable Review: "I have oily combo skin and this stuff is AMAZING! 11/10! I work 12 hours in all kinds of conditions and this stuff stays on ALL DAY! It’s the only one that doesn’t settle into my lines and does not come off on my mask. It’s oil- controlling. I don’t need to blot. This is a must for oily skin."

Best Waterproof Eyeliner

7. Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Eyeliner

Urban Decay

  • Five-Star Reviews: 11,000+
  • Why We Like It: 33 shades, waterproof, comes in five finishes
  • Who It's For: N/A

Whether you're looking to rock an impressive cat eye or interested in dabbling in the baby pink makeup trend, this eyeliner pencil should be on your radar. The 11,000+ five-star reviews offer proof that it glides on smoothly and sets in place for hours, so you have a smudge-free night. It's also infused with hydrating ingredients (like vitamin E, cottonseed oil and jojoba oil) and comes in five different finishes—from matte to metallic to glitter.

Notable Review: "This liner lasted ALL DAY out in the hot sun. I have hooded eyelids and mature skin, and the liner didn't transfer. [It] was a dream to glide on and color deposits evenly and richly with just first swipe."

Classic Beauty Tool

8. Beautyblender Original Makeup Sponge


  • Five-Star Reviews: 6,000+
  • Why We Like It: vegan, latex-free, Latinx-owned,
  • Who It's For: all skin types

This beauty tool has been a staple in the makeup world for years and shoppers can't talk about it enough on Sephora. Its unique teardrop design reaches every crease and corner of your face and its non-latex foam blends your look without leaving any streaks or wasting too much product. Though there are many beauty sponges out there, customers say that none can hold a candle to this one.

Notable Review: "You really cant beat the OG sponge. No other makeup applicator can save a product like that one. It's so good at giving a completely natural skin finish or building it up. Best tool to blend cream sculpting as well."


Most Hydrating Cleanser

9. Youth to the People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser

Youth to the People

  • Five-Star Reviews: 3,000+
  • Why We Like It: vegan, sulfate-free, great for clearing pores
  • Who It's For: oily and combination skin

Made with natural ingredients (like kale, spinach and green tea), this antioxidant-packed cleanser works to improve your natural glow, while soothing skin. Fans of the cleanser also note that it deep cleans pores, so you're left with a squeaky-clean complexion without sacrificing your skin's pH levels.

Notable Review: “I have dry, acne-prone skin and a minimal routine, so I really need a cleanser that fights acne [and] cleans[es], and this one does a great job! Love this stuff. My skin is considerably less red, plus I wake up the next day and my face looks and feels noticeably better!”

Moisturizing Lip Mask

10. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask


  • Five-Star Reviews: 11,000+
  • Why We Like It: four scents, contains vitamin C, TikTok favorite
  • Who It's For: all skin types

The rave reviews for this lip mask speak for themselves, including and not limited to how soft it feels and how it doesn't smell overly fruity. And if you suffer constantly from cracked, dry lips, it turns them buttery smooth—thanks to its hydrating formula, featuring berry mix, coconut oil, shea butter, murumuru seed butter and vitamin C.

Notable Review: "Go to bed wearing this lip mask. You will wake up with soft lips that will last all day! I am in love with this product."

  • Five-Star Reviews: 2,000+
  • Why We Like It: medium coverage, great for redness, SPF 30
  • Who It's For: dry, combination and oily skin

This color corrector is great for concealing discoloration and protecting skin from sun damage, thanks to its zinc oxide and titanium dioxide formula. P.S. For best results, the brand recommends patting and pressing the product into your skin using your fingertips instead of rubbing it in (which can cause pilling).

Notable Review: "My face is constantly red and flushed, and this cream magically neutralizes it. I rarely have to put anything over top of it (concealer, etc.) and it is so lightweight I forget I have it on. I am so glad I discovered it!"

Editor Pick

Multiple PureWow editors swear by this clear, lightweight SPF for their sun protection needs. “I’m hopelessly devoted to Unseen Sunscreen. It rubs in really easily, and you can’t see it or feel it on your skin,” PureWow Senior Editor Sarah Stiefvater explains. Reviewers note that it wears well under makeup, too.

Notable Review: “My favorite sunscreen!! It doesn’t leave a white cast and almost had a primer-like finish. Perfect under makeup or without! On my third bottle and I loveeee it!”

Most Splurge-worthy

  • Why We Like It: clean ingredients, contains glycolic acid and salicylic acid, easy to use
  • Who It's For: acne-prone, oily, combination and dull skin

A PureWow editors' mom saw results in just one use, so we're not surprised this two-step exfoliator has racked up a ton of five-star ratings. In addition to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, its combination of glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids helps combat acne scars, clear pores and curb excess oil production. Some people also swear the peel has cured their cystic acne. Pretty impressive if you ask us.

Notable Review: “I was nervous to spend so much on a product, but this definitely made a difference in my complexion! It has really helped my blackheads and has made a noticeable difference in my cystic acne. Most notably, its smoothing abilities are phenomenal!”

Notable Review: “It makes my skin smooth as silk, and it smells like a summer vacation day. It sinks right into your skin and you don’t have that greasy feel that so many other moisturizers have. My husband even commented on how smooth my skin felt.”

Add water to emulsify the balm into a milky lather before singing clean and proceeding with the rest of your routine.

Notable Review: “Love this hair mask. I have very thick and curly hair [and] this mask works wonders on my hair. It softens my curls and makes my hair much more manageable. I tend to use it in the shower [to help] brush out the knots in my hair. It leaves my hair feeling silky and soft and helps my dry dead ends.”

Daily Dry Shampoo Pick

18. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

Living Proof

  • Five-Star Reviews: 2,000+
  • Why We Like It: oil-controlling formula, sulfate- and silicone-free, color safe
  • Who It's For: oily scalps

Not gonna lie, we’ve definitely been pushing the limits on how often we wash our hair. Thankfully, we have dry shampoo, and this one from Living Proof is the best of the best. According to reviewers, it actually works to clean the hair by removing dirt, oil and odor rather than just masking it. Plus, they say it doesn’t leave a chalky cast on dark hair.

Notable Review: “[This is] hands down the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used! It blends really well, smells great and truly makes your hair look freshly washed.”

Best Repair Leave-In

  • Five-Star Reviews: 2,000+
  • Why We Like It: silicone-free, clean ingredients, light floral scent
  • Who It's For: color-treated, chemically-treated and damaged hair

If you just got the snazzy whipped cappuccino shade for spring, adding this leave-in mask will keep maintain its vibrancy between appointments. The brand claims it can clinically reverse damage in under four minutes and reviewers are standing behind it. Its designed with peptides to restore softness, repair damaged strands and add bounce to your locks.

Notable Review: "I just tried this hair mask for the first time and let me tell you, it’s 1000% worth the hype. I have long, curly hair that’s very dry and brittle from using hot tools and this soaked the moisture into my hair and visibly smoothed out my split ends. I can’t stop touching my hair, it’s so soft and shiny."

Great for Damaged Hair

20. Olaplex No.3 Hair Repair Perfector


  • Five-Star Reviews: 2,000+
  • Why We Like It: clean ingredients, great for volume, safe for color-treated hair
  • Who It's For: damaged hair

Reviewers love all things Olaplex, but the brand's No.3 treatment gets the most attention. The pre-shampoo formula promises to repair and restore strength to damaged hair. Fans say it does this and more—including reducing split ends, frizz and breakage, even on chemically-treated locks.

Notable Review: "By far, [this] is the first hair repair treatment that showed immediate results after the first application. In the last year, I went from jet black hair to blonde, and spending most of the year at the beach in the water did a number on my hair. This is well worth the money to save your hair and help restore its health without having to cut it all off."
