The holiday countdown has begun at Sephora with the launch of its best sets and limited edition items. The collection has just dropped at sephora.ca and I expect many of these will sell out quickly. Each item offers good value for money – especially if you like to try mini sets. Here are five sets trending already.
My interview with Jean and Jane Ford, founders of Benefit Cosmetics is one of the funniest I’ve ever done. The pair are hilarious. And yes, they eat bowls of M&M candies when brainstorming the names for their products and gift sets like this one: Letters to Lashes. This set features three full-sized Benefit mascaras for the price of $56 (with a value of $108) You get “They’re Real”, “BADgal Bang” and “Roller Lash” – all in black. And the retro-tin box is so cute.
London-based makeup artist Katie Scott designed this new Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Elephant Palette for Hourglass Cosmetics. You’ll find four new ambient lighting shades to give you that lit-from-within glow. Think: diffuse, enhance and glow. Better yet, 5% of annual profits from this collection will benefit the Nonhuman Rights Project, a U.S. organization working to secure the fundamental rights for animals.
Get ready to party and say cheers to the holiday season with full-sized versions of MAC’s best-selling iconic shades including: Whirl, Ruby Woo and Mehr. You’ll notice the bubble-popped packaging – perfect for gift-giving. It retails for $42 with a value of $81.
Tarte is taking an Art Deco approach to its holiday packaging this year as you see in this Gilded Glamour Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Wardrobe. It boasts two super-slim palettes featuring 36 brand new shades. One palette emphasizes warm hues of bronze, gold, dusty rose and merlot. While the second features cool tones of taupe, moss, navy and plum. It’s priced at $70 with a value of $324.
Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani always offers stylish holiday sets. This is the Armani Beauty Lip Power Holiday Duo Set containing a full-sized Lip Power Long Lasting Satin lipstick in shades 104 and 504. So chic.
All of these sets are available at sephora.ca and Sephora stores in Canada.
