I think I could LIVE in Sephora, especially around the holidays when everything is so pretty and sparkly and all-around lovely. Squeal! I def know my way around that place like the back of my hand, and I love to try out new products when they come in. Every girl in my family usually winds up with some type of beauty product (um, heels are too expensive, sorry!).
The best kind of gift is a box set (sort of like your fav music, but in beauty products, haha). Sephora’s seven limited-edition Beauty in a Box products are perfect because you don’t have to figure out who likes lip gloss better than mascara. They have most everything in them, for a fraction of the price. The set above is from the Sephora brand – Sparkle Till Dawn ($36; $77 value) – with shadows, liners and all the prettiest glitter products a girl could want. I’m also crushing on the Laura Mercier Classic Eye Kit ($42; $103 value) – full of all the best products from LM with a step-by-step “eye tutorial.” My other fav is the NARS Junkie ($69; $121 value) – because I am just that. There are so many products in this one you can make several looks – from “A Sophisticated Smoldering Eye” to “Romantic and Radiant.”
