When in doubt, go Sephora! I don’t know any girls who don’t like makeup, but there is always an exception! That’s fine, b/c Sephora carries a ton of other products such as perfume, body washes, creams and shampoos; in a nutshell, it’s a pull proof Christmas shopping destination! And each year, the Christmas packages, value set and limited editions are the envy of the town! Here is a sneak peak of what you can find in stores and online!
Atelier Cologne Nécessaire Curated by Sylvie Ganter & Christophe Cervasel ($95): Perfume is a very personal thing and it’s not always easy to please! So a little sampler like this is a great idea! The notes of all these perfumes range from sweet vanilla to fresh citrus and they’re all fresh, not heavy and last a really long time. My absolute fave is the vanilla one; although I’m not a huge fan of sweet perfumes, this one is not very overpowering and you can even mix it with the other ones to create a personalized scent. Not to mention these roller sticks are perfect on the go!
Sephora Collection Sparkle & Shine Brush Set (on sale for $74) & Glitter Happy Brush Set ($68) – both Limited Edition: Best value for your buck! Good brushes are expensive, they easily sell for $30 a pop! So your best bet is a brush value set! These two Sephora Collection sets are great quality, they’re super soft and they’re perfectly packaged!
House of Lashes false eyelashes set: SO adorable! A little gold case to carry false eyelashes in, comes with a set of lashes and glue! The lashes are luscious and ultra long – can’t wait to try them out!!! Sephora Collection makeup cases: Glitter, Gold & Everything Bold clutch ($33) & Baby It’s Bold Outside bag ($25): Sephora always has the cutest makeup bags, especially around the holidays! I love the little messages, they make me smile every time I’m looking at them! Loving the gold, sparkle and shine on each of these – so well made, no glitter comes off at all and they both fit a lot of makeup in there. The Glitter, Gold & Everything gold is nice and rigid, amazing for bigger palettes and it’s a cute pink color inside. The Baby It’s Bold Outside is soft and great to throw things in for everyday, and since it’s black inside, you can’t stain it with dark eyeshadow or mascara. LOVE both, was thinking of gifting out but I don’t seem to be able to part ways with any of them…I’ll just get another as a gift lol.
Living Proof Spread Cheer & Perfect Hair Kit (only $33) : If you follow my blog, you probably already know all about my obsession of washing my hair everyday, but on the days that I decide to hold off, I need a great dry shampoo to get me through the day! And this one is the best – it’s not sticky, it doesn’t linger when you spray it and it doesn’t have any scent to it, but most importantly it makes my hair look as if it was freshly washed! And the package comes with two deluxe samples of shampoo & conditioner which are great – you only need a tiny bit of each to wash your hair, so you use each product evenly. Sephora Collection Kissin’ Up Lip Gloss Set (on sale for $32!): This set includes 18 mini glosses in many different shades – amazing for sampling & gifting :) Smells nice and sweet & the texture is very nice – not too sticky, just enough to give that little shine. Some of them are more sheer and others are nicely pigmented so you only need a little bit to get the full effect. Love the size as you can take them to go, even in a mini clutch – very good buy for only $32!!!
Kiss Bliss Tartelist Creamy Matte Lip Paint & Crayon Set ($60): When I got this set I was sure that the texture was a gloss but it’s actually more like a liquid lipstick – it’s very matt & the colors are very pigmented, love love love! However, you need to keep your lips hydrated b/c of the matt look! Great to breakdown and use as stocking stuffer. Too Faced Let It Glow Highlight & Brush Set ($32): Lots of good stuff in a little package – but then again with Too Faced, a little goes a long way! ;) It comes with a highlighter, a bronzer, a blush and a little heart shapes brush. The packing is super cute, I’m obsessed! The bronzer is my favourite, looks perfect on my complexion and it goes really well with the blush! Plus, it’s perfect for on the go, and working chix are always on he go! Grab this for a gift or spoil yourself!First Aid Beauty: I had already tried the hand cream, but this was my 1st time trying out the body cream and gloss! LOVE this beyond words. A tiny bit goes a long way! I’ve been applying this cream all over my body after I shower and I barely used a bit of the product and my skin feels baby smooth! It’s definitely an ULTRA REPAIR cream! Perfect as a gift!!!
Happy Shopping Chix!
