As a travel editor I am always transporting my makeup from one country to another so I love the Sephora Collection Starlit Large Train Case ($138.00). It is a bit heavy to lug through the airport but on short trips it keeps me organized with a variety of compartments and pull out doors that open to reveal all my brushes and essentials.
The Moon Phases Face Palette ($34.00) has a beautiful variety of blush duos and highlighters that range from warm to cool and matte to shimmer. The smooth pigments have great color payoff and blend effortlessly for a seamless fade-proof finish. I like the unique combination of deep terracotta-orange, purple-y pink, rich brown and champagne.
Makeup lovers will go crazy for Sephora’s limited edition Cream Lip Stain Collection ($34.00). The high-coverage color glides on smooth and velvety before transforming into a saturated stain that stays put for hours! The texture is lightweight, silky and supple with a dose of avocado oil to prevent dryness. The only shade I don’t care for is the nude pink but everything else looks stunning!
The Enchanting Glow Palette ($13.00) has 4 luminous shades to brighten dull skin and enhance the cheeks with a natural flush. The bronzer and blush are a tad light so they may appear more prominent on fair to medium complexions.
For girls who love sexy lashes, there is no shortage of falsies at Sephora. If you’re on a budget I recommend the Double Down Set that retails for just $15.00 or the Fringe Lash Set with glittery gold case and glue for $25.00. If you’re in the mood to splurge, try the Lilly Lashes Set ($75.00) with 2 pairs of bestselling mink lashes and rose gold applicator.
You can never have too much sparkle during the holidays and the Sephora Loose Glitter Pots ($17.00) are sensational! This festive set shines like diamonds and comes with gold, green, silver and rose gold for the eyes, lips and body. Make sure to use an adhesive so the particles stay put.
The Wish Upon a Star Mini Brush Set ($17.00) comes with 4 small eye brushes you can toss in your purse for quick touch-ups or weekend getaways. It also makes a great stocking stuffer!
My favorite gift is the Rising Star Brush Set ($49.00) with gorgeous handles, soft bristles and a stand up glittery canister. It comes with brushes for the complexion, highlighter, shadow and smudging to create a complete look.
The Glitter & Chill Cooling Mask ($10.00) infused with rose gold glitter is a beauty essential! Pop it in the fridge for 30 minutes and use it to alleviate tired eyes, puffiness and headache symptoms.
The Tinsel Time Clutch ($18.00) is currently in my suitcase filled with holiday jewelry. You can also use it for makeup or sheet mask storage.
The stockings are always the first gifts my family opens on Christmas morning and I would love to find the Glowy Surprise Cracker ($19.00) tucked inside. It comes with a cream lip stain, blush and luminizer for all skin tones.
You can find these great products and more at sephora.ca but since Christmas is just a few days away, it is probably best to visit the store.
