This year, it’s going to be a Sephora Christmas! I don’t know about you, but my favourite part about the Holidays is spending time with family & friends and seeing their happy faces as they unwrap the gifts I got for them! I must admit that whenever Sephora is involved, there is always a smile that follows! Each year, Sephora pulls off a stunning SC Limited Edition Holiday Collection – great fun packaging & quality products at affordable prices, and this year is no different! Christmas 2019 theme is ‘Frosted’ – it features adorable white and mint green packaging with cute little penguins.
Sephora is also running a sale now through December 17th, with code “HOORAY2019”, Rouge member get $25 off $75; VIB members get $20 off $75 & Insider members get $15 off $75! It’s time to finish that Christmas shopping list and here are my fave limited edition value sets and stocking stuffers to help you do just that!
Cream Lip Stain Collection Set: This set (featured as the cover image of this post) includes 6 full size lip stains in 4 matte and 2 metal finishes. What I love about this set is that you can break it down and offer the stains as stocking stuffers, or party favours at a dinner party. The stains are very nicely pigmented, moisturizing as they contain avocado oil (who doesn’t love a good avocado ingredient?) and they have a nice creamy texture that easily glides onto the lips. This value set is a total steal for $37, as each of these stains retails for about $18.50, which basically means that you are paying for 2 and getting 4 for free!
Winter Eyes 16 eyeshadow palette: This sleek packaging contains 16 perfectly curated shades ranging from neutral to smoky-toned shadows in matte, shimmery & metallic finishes. It has the beige, brown & grey shades + a stunning pop of emerald! These shadows are nicely pigmented and stay put all day. It’s really easy to blend the shades to create day looks as well as night looks – perfect for those Christmas & NYE parties! I’ve used a lot of different Sephora Collection eyeshadow palettes and they have never disappointed!
Winter Time Eye & Face Palette: If you rather a palette that does it all, this one’s for you! It features 8 eyeshadows in a blend of warm and cold tones (both neutrals & darker shades), and 3 highlighters! Similar to the 16 eyeshadow palette, these shades are very nicely pigmented and the texture is creamy! This palette is more compact and probably easier to travel with + it’s on sale for $12!!! Need I say more?
Igloo Palace makeup palette: If you want to go all out and wow the crowds, this is THE ultimate gift to achieve it! It looks like a little igloo, but once you open it up: bam! 60 creamy, perfectly pigmented eyeshadows, 24 lip glosses, 8 cream liners, 4 brow powders, 6 highlighters, 6 blushes and bronzers & 1 smoothing & brightening powder. I mean, if this does not bring a smile to their faces, their hearts must be made out of stone! This palette will certainly create any look you can imagine and you can play around with the colors all year round – endless possibilities !
Frosted Party Advent Calendar: Now, I know that technically you’re supposed to get an advent calendar at the beginning of the month and count down the days till Christmas, but do you really expect someone to complain for getting his calendar on Christmas day? You can open up ALL the windows all at once: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME! What I love the most about Sephora Advent Calendars (aside from the fact that it’s a Sephora Advent Calendar) is the fact that you get to sample so many goodies and discover new items! This calendar contains the following (Spoiler alert!): 1 charcoal nose strip, 1 pineapple nose mask, 2 shower jellies, 2 bath fizzing stars, 1 nail polish, 2 nail polish remover wipes, 4 express eye makeup removers, 1 mini eye pencil, 1 mini lip pencil, 1 eyeshadow, 1 lip balm, 1 lip stain, 1 lipstick, 1 eye mask, 1 lip mask, 1 pocket mirror, 1 nail stencil, 2 invisible elastic hair bands, 1 nail file & 1 decorative badge (are you out of breath yet?!) On sale for $30 – no jokes! Currently out of stock online, but definitely check your local Sephora store!
Frosted Party Multi-Sensorial Face Mask set: Featuring a set of 3 face masks focused on the following: anti-blemish, skin perfecting & toning. I have not yet tried out these 3, however I’ve tried various Sephora Collections masks before and loved them all, from the scent to the texture to the benefits – all A+! Once again, you can break this set apart and use the masks as stocking stuffers.
Shimmer and Shine Brush set: Obsessed with brush sets over here and this one is ah-mazing! It’s $61 but you get a $212 value! It comes with 8 pieces including a powder, blush, foundation, fan, concealer, shadow, crease and liner brushes + an adorable shimmery carrying case. Sephora brushes are so soft, so easy to use, and they are amazing quality for the price!
LashCraft Curler: Adorable stocking stuffer, this rose gold eyelash curler does the job and looks super cute all at the same time. You can pair this with a gift of mascara or fake lashes.
