GUYS! In the craziness of the weekend, we completely forgot about the Sephora Beauty Insiders Event. Beauty Insiders can take up to 20% off of everything (depending on your Insider status), but the sale ends today. Most of us here at TME use the sale to stock up on our tried-and-true beauty favs, or on some splurgy-worth beauty tools (S swears by the Dyson airwrap, for example, as well as Beauty Bio’s microneedling tool, and this microdermabrasion kit.)
If you are looking for makeup recommendations….Scotti covered her top 15 products of all time, here. And check our Instagram – the team is listing the ONE thing they’re buying from this year’s sale.
Easy Holiday Gifting: Sephora’s Beauty Sets
The purpose of this post, however, is gifts. Sephora has some of the best holiday gift sets around — and every year they completely sell out (often before we can blog about them). So. While the sale is still live, here are the holiday gift sets that we’re eyeing up. All of the sets featured are ones we have already tried (or gifted) ourselves…or sets we would genuinely love to receive as gifts.
I hate testing perfumes and colognes…I never fail to leave with a headache. And I know my dad and brother would love having some new ones to try out without the added pressure of liking an expensive, full-sized bottle. S gifted this to her husband last Valentine’s Day, and word is that Mike is still working his way through, testing them all.
Scotti is a longtime fan of Tarte, and she’s gotten us all hooked. This gift set comes with three palettes, and would make cute little gifts for girlfriends, sisters, tweens, etc.
Trying new mascaras is my guilty pleasure. (And I know a lot of people that feel the same.) I’m forever on the hunt to find the best for my short, thin lashes. This set includes my current top fav — Too Faced Better Than Sex (that also happens to come in a “vault” set w/ 5 of those bad boys!). I’m way too excited about this.
Growing up there was something so luxuriously cool about fancy lipsticks. It was like the ultimate sign that you were all grown up (and it always reminds me of my momma). These lipsticks, however, are the real deal: some of the smoothest, most long-lasting, genuinely luxe lipsticks out there. Both S and Linzi swear by these – and the colors are gorgeous. Side note: How cool is the packaging? Can’t say I wouldn’t keep it…
From the second S talked about this, I wanted to try it out. She says its a total game-changer! It helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles…hello, don’t mind if I do. Maybe after use, my makeup won’t settle as much into the lines on my face. A dream! (It includes the Microneedling Regeneration Tool, the FACE MicroTip Attachment Head, the BODY MicroTip, and the Balance pH Balancing Gel Cleanser.)
Fresh Sugar’s lip tints are a team fav, and we reallllllly love this cute little boxed set. All the colors!!! All of them!
I don’t know about you guys, but I do not get enough sun. Like at all. But that’s what glow-y makeup products are for! This set essentially includes all the products needed to look a little…sunkissed.
I want this! I don’t know a single one of my friends that wouldn’t love this gift. Face masks can solve any problem..or so I tell myself. (And I’ve tried the Sephora brand ones — I’d definitely get them again!)
I. can. never. get. enough. lip. products. But seriously, you guys should see how many I’ve managed to accumulate over the years.. but they’re all different, I swear! As for what’s actually in this set, they’ve got good ones. I’ve been dying to try ILIA’s products and hello, Fenty…happy to see you’re included. I have tried Kat Von D’s liquid lip and LOVED because it actually stayed on. This is a solid line up.
Another team fav: universally flattering, and sorta pink, but not too pink. The set comes with everything you need for the perfect lip — liner, gloss, lipstick, and a “collagen lip bath gloss” just in case one gloss isn’t enough.
Let me know what you guys are loving or eyeing in the sale! I’m always lookin’ for some recommendations.
PS: This one’s for the pinners…
