Sephora Exclusives and Holiday Favorites


With only a few shopping days left, the quickest and easiest way to get all your holiday shopping done is to purchase them online or to purchase all your gifts in one store. There are a ton of gift sets and new products to choose from at Sephora. Here's a look at some of my holiday favorites and exclusives at Sephora this season. 

At the very top of my list is the Foreo Deep Cleansing Essentials with Turquoise LUNA mini ($139). The 3 piece set includes the LUNA mini and a day and night cleanser. I love how gentle this facial-cleaning brush is and the compact design is perfect for travel! It has non-abrasive silicone touch-points, T-Sonic pulsations with up to 8,000 pulsations per minute, 2 speeds, and is quick-drying and 100% waterproof. I'm not good at keeping all my devices charged and don't have to worry with this one - 1 full charge lasts up to 5 months / 300 uses!


Peter Thomas Roth is one of my go-to skin care brands, which is why I'm excited about the Mask-A-Holic Vault ($190) set, which comes with five of Peter Thomas Roth's most popular masks to detoxify, repair, hydrate, and polish skin. I use the Cucumber Gel Mask, but since I've never tried the other ones, this gives me the perfect chance to. The set also comes with the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask, Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask, 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask. 

Bite Beauty is my favorite lipstick brand, and I'm always excited for their holiday stocking stuffers. The Bite Mix and Mingle ($14) double-ended lipstick duo comes in six limited-edition holiday pairings in both nude and bold shades. The lipsticks are moisture-rich, with super-antioxidant resveratrol. 


The Sephora Collection Kiss Me Balm ($8) is a nice gift for that extra stocking stuffer. This creamy balm comes in different shades, adding a subtle color or none at all, and keeps lips moisturized all day long.


Boscia Japanese Favorites ($35) are travel-friendly, with everything you need for your daily skin care regimen: Detoxifying Black Cleanser, Tsubaki Beauty Oil, Luminizing Black Mask and Exfoliating Peel Gel. The Exfoliating Peel Gel is one of my favorite products - it works as a physical peel, a chemical peel for in-depth exfoliation, and as a treatment to firm and brighten.


Tarte Lips for Daze Lipsurgence Set ($34) comes with 2 Lipsurgence lip tints in glaze and praise, and 3 Liposurgence matte lip tints in craze, emblaze & haze.


For the lip gloss lover, the Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss ($150) Collection is the perfect gift. This limited-edition collection includes 12, non-sticky super shine shades ranging from sheer to opaque. The SuperFlex Applicator ensures precision and control, with a contoured tip that evenly distributes color on the lips. 


The Sephora Collection Color Wonderland* Neutral & Vivid Eyeshadow Palette ($59) is made up of 78 eye shadows and two eye pencils. The palette is split between neutral and bright hues in iridescent and matte finishes for an endless color story.


Smashbox has partnered with Yago Hortal for the Art.Love.Color. Pout Collection in soft pink shades, which includes Be Legendary lip gloss and lipstick in Pout, L.A. Lights blendable lip & cheek color in Pacific Coast Pout, and Always Sharp lip liner in Frenchie. 


The MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA Replica Rollerball Duo Gift Set ($40) includes the floral Lazy Sunday Morning and Beach Walk scents. This set makes a great on-the-go fragrance stocking stuffer. 


The L'Occitane Best of Provence Set ($41) includes 10 favorites to cleanse, hydrate and soften, from soaps and body oils to hand creams and body lotions.
