Holiday 2015: Shopping @ Sephora

Christmas at Sephora: Holiday 2015

A Guide to Shopping Sephora: Holiday Season 2015

Christmas is upon us. So many people receive gift cards or cash as gifts and so I thought that after Christmas was a great time to have a guide to give you ideas of how to spend that extra "Christmas" cash or to buy belated Christmas gifts for your family.

You know, Sephora isn't just for girls.  There are plenty of gift ideas that are suitable for men or even ladies who aren't necessarily "into" makeup.

The LEGAL mumbo jumbo:

CHRISTMAS GIFT CARDS: Stuck with a GC you won't use?

Got a gift card for Christmas? Do you know that there are now sites where if you don't want the gift card you received or would rather have cash or a gift card for a different store there are sites where you can exchange your current gift card for cash or a different store!  So, if you do have a GC and would rather get one say to, Sephora, be sure to search for applicable sites where you can exchange your cards!

Sephora: A Shopping Guide to Holiday Shopping at Sephora

Before I begin, the products in this guide are products that I was fortunate enough to receive myself from Sephora.  It was a huge blessing to get this opportunity as I am a HUGE makeup junkie and am far too poor to afford to be able to support my unhealthy habit.

I wanted to do a "review" type post, but with this many products it was just no feasible.  I'll be doing reviews later on a few of the products listed below.  Let me know in the comments if there are any specific products you would like to see reviewed later on!

I was so so excited to get this treasure trove of goodies from Sephora.  I don't make a lot of money from blogging and so it's through my reviews that I'm able to provide gifts for my friends and family which is what this Sephora Haul enabled me to do.

I wasn't ALL giving.  There were a few things that I kept for myself.  I kept the Too Faced palette (I know that was a bit greedy of me, but it had been on my wish list!), the Bite Beauty lipstick & The Clinique Lipstick set.  My daughter got a few things as well, including the Formula X Bottle Service Kit, she's a nail junkie and so there was never any doubt who that would go to.

I think among these products, the items that really stood out to me the most were:

ghd Flat Iron | Arctic Gold Series - It's just absolutely stunning.  Although I rarely put a tool to my hair, it was extremely tempting to keep just because it's so gorgeous!

Formula X Bottle Service Kit - It's such cute packaging as well as includes a wide variety of colors to try, perfect for someone who has never tried the brand before.

First Aid Beauty Kit - I've heard wonderful things about this brand, so this was a standout for me because it was a great value with the combination for products included.

Too Faced | La Grand Palais - I'm obsessed with Too Faced.  They have such adorable packaging and their eyeshadows are so pigmented!  This was a great set having 18 eyeshadows, plus two blushes, a Melted, a Mascara and a bronzer and highlighter PLUS shadow primer!!  This was definitely the best value, in my opinion!

Sephora Holiday Brush Set-  This is a gorgeous gift set and the brushes are super soft!!  I love the little sparkly stand that's included with this.  Anyone would be thrilled to get this as a gift.


I'd love to hear from you!

What were your favorites out of this list?  What was your favorite gift this Holiday season?

Will you be using your Christmas Money on Makeup items this year??
