How many times have you gone to Sephora for a new shade of lipstick and left with nail polish, a face mask, dry shampoo, and a highlighter? I know it can't be just me. Sure, I have been using some of the same products since middle school, but I've discovered some of my favorite beauty products by meandering through Sephora and seeing what catches my eye. But, before buying something new, I always check out the reviews from diehard beauty-lovers on Sephora to find out how the product has worked for other people.

It makes me feel validated knowing that Sephora users are as loyal as I am to my beloved Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage—and they aren’t shy about sharing candid feedback. Not all products get rave reviews, but these 15 beauty products all have more than 1,000 glowing reviews on Sephora—and some have up to a whopping 14k. That's a lot of praise from some of the most discerning shoppers.
