I always love the travel size bins near the checkout counter at Sephora, its a great place to find mini sizes, cute gift sets and travel sizes of makeup, skincare and accessories. Just a quick roundup of a few things I’m currently loving, all under $30 and make for great gifts!
Sephora Collection Breakups To Makeup Holiday Bag ($26; sephora.com), is a super fun clutch that holds makeup, beauty essentials and more. Its very roomy and very well made too. A great gift, an add on to any gift basket or just a good makeup bag to pick up for yourself.
Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel in Good Fairy ($14; sephora.com) - The Ultra Shine Lip Gels by Sephora are quite nice on their own and the new Holographic Gels are nice to layer on top of any lip product. Its shimmery and the shimmer is eye catching, but not gritty and very multidimensional. Good Fairy is a pink with a green flash, very gorgeous to layer on top of cream lipsticks.
Sephora Collection Kiss The Moon Lip Gloss ($5; sephora.com), a very flattering pink color, in the shape of a Christmas Ornament. The packaging is too cute and the gloss itself is nice too. Not a cure for dry lips or anything miraculous, but a really nice hint of barely there pink that can be thrown into even the smallest of makeup bags.
Bite Beauty Mix and Mingle Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo in Palomino and Pomegranate ($14; sephora.com), both very bright colors and the formula is fantastic on these creme lipsticks. The mini sizes are really cute and make for fabulous stocking stuffers!
Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Duo ($18; sephora.com) is a full size duo featuring a full-size Lipair Mint and travel-size Ceramidin Oil Balm. The lip balm is minty and so far so good for chapped lips and the Oil Balm is a mineral-oil free multi use balm for lips, face, cuticles and more. I’m still giving these a trial and will report back on the effectiveness in the long run, but so far this little kit is quite a nice value!
