Happy Holidays! If you are shopping at Sephora this holiday season, you are going to want to splurge on some of these gifts for yourself, especially to kick off the new year!
My favorite lipstick brand is Bite Beauty, which is exclusive to Sephora. I'm in love with their new Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Mistletoe, $26, a limited-edition holiday shade of red. There's always room to add more shades to your lip wardrobe, like the Tarte Kiss Bliss Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint & Crayon Set, was $35 value, now $25 ($70 value). This 10-piece set has best-selling and limited-edtion nude, berry and bold shades.
If you are into bold, heavily pigmented shades, then you'll love the Kat Von D Mini Liquid Lipstick Set, $49 ($80 value), with 6 mattes and 2 exclusives - Plath, a deep russet red and Roxy, a bright grape. Don't forget to add the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette, $46, including 3 shades for contouring and 3 shades for highlighting.
My beauty indulgence are new eyeshadow palettes, including these two: Marc Jacobs Stye Eye-Con No. 20 ($99) and Marc Jacobs Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette, was $69, now $49 ($99 value). The 20 shades in the Style Eye-Con palette are so gorgeous, with shimmery metallics, buttery mattes and lustrous sheens to create the perfect smoky eye, daytime glam or casual daytime look. The Objects of Desire exclusive palette incudes a blush, bronzer, limited-edition luminizer and 6 eye shadows.
This feels like you are getting two palettes for one price, with The Estée Edit Gritty and Glow Magnetic Eye and Face Palettes, $58. Each palette has 6 pearlized shades. The Gritty palette is great for intense smoky eye looks and the Glow palette are highlighter shades for cheeks and eyes.
For a fragrance gift, check out the Atelier Cologne Nécessaire Nomade III kit, $45, with 8 pure perfumes that come in a metal tin inspired by travel.
