Now that the countdown to the holidays has really started, I’m sure I’m not the only one continually hunting for gifts! My gift shopping is almost done, but there are always a few people I’m still shopping for in December. And yes, it almost always turns out that a beauty gift would be perfect!
Sephora’s Gifts for All event is really one of the best perks of joining the Sephora Beauty Insider Program! Reminder, joining is free, and you need to be a member to take advantage of this event.
Things to know:
• It runs 12/1–12/10
• All Rouge, VIB and Beauty Insider Members can participate
• You get a one time use code (YAYGIFTING), and it is good for 20% off your cart (note, there are a few brand exceptions) and 30% off Sephora collection products.
This is the perfect timing to pick up stocking stuffers, gifts for your best friend or difficult to shop for cousin, not to mention pick up anything you realized you forgot to get during the Fall Savings Event (I always forget something. Here’s my post on the things I was stocking up on during the Fall Savings Event in case you need a refresher). I’m sharing a few of the items I’ve bought recently that would make great gifts!
I have to admit that I didn’t buy this set to give away, I bought it for me! I’ve heard for years that the Dr. Jart masks are amazing, but I’ve never tried them. I love that there are so many of their best sellers in this one set, and at $68 (a $98 value) it’s a great deal! The ones I’m most excited to try out are the Cryo Rubber Face Mask With Firming Collagen and Pore Remedy Purifying Mud Face Mask.
I bought this in Vanilla + Coconut, but it also comes in Strawberry + Watermelon. This set has a great lip balm and a “night sleeping mask”, which really is more of a tube lip balm that’s extra hydrating. This is a great little set to either add to a gift bag or use as a stocking stuffer.
Someone I work with was recently talking about how amazing the Sephora Outrageous Intense Lip Plumpers are, that they actually plump and don’t feel sticky! This trio is a good deal ($13 less than if purchased separately), and would be a great gift or something to keep for yourself.
When Fenty released these Shadowstix recently I was pretty excited about them! Yes, other brands also make eye shadow sticks, but it feels like Rihanna can do no wrong when it comes to beauty. Her products are always amazing and become cult favorites for a reason. The Shadowstix are no different. I feel like they are a little creamier than other shadow sticks when they apply, making them a little easier to blend. But they “set” after a minute or two, and then they don’t budge the rest of the day. I had no creasing and they looked great at the end of the day.
This little trio of original, Cinnamon and Vanilla Butta Dropz is perfect for trying out all of the scents, or using them for travel! This is my go-to body butter, especially in the winter when I want something a little more hydrating. I bought a couple of these sets, and I’m keeping one for myself!
I’ve mentioned this set a few times this fall, but it’s so good I need to mention it again! Two of my favorite lippies are included, a small perfume and a serum that’s perfect for travel. But the real star is the “free” makeup bag! It’s really extremely well made, a thick velvet with great hardware. The zippers are even branded. And the bag has the CD logo on it. I think the set is worth buying just for the bag, but the Dior Addict Lip Glow and Addict Lip Maximizer are great bonuses!
