I’ll be stocking up on Sunday Riley, Isle of Paradise, and Iconic London.

Summer is over—it’s horrible, devastating, and worthy of shedding a tear. The silver lining, however, is that the end of the season brings about the best beauty deals of the season. Labor Day weekend (plus a few days before, and a few days after) ushers in crazy discounts across categories, making it the *ideal* time to restock on favorites, experiment with newness, and transition your beauty for fall. The best sale out there, surprise surprise, comes by way of Sephora. The retailer is offering—wait for it—up to 50 percent off select makeup, hair care, skincare, and more. The promo is running both online and in stores from Friday, September 1 through Monday, September 4.

The question becomes: What should you shop for? I’ve spent hours combing through the sale section to find the best discounts, deals, and price slashes being offered over the holiday weekend. From half-off self-tanners that will extend your summer glow to skincare with high levels of hydration to keep you hydrated through the fall, here are the best items to shop during Sephora’s Labor Day sale.
