Best gifts at Sephora

1. Charlotte Tilbury Mini Iconic Matte Revolution Lipstick Trio

Help a loved one upgrade their collection of lipsticks with this trio of popular Charlotte Tilbury shades:

This square-tipped lipstick offers better control when filling in your pout and makes it easier to achieve a precise application of lipstick. Plus, the paraben-free and long-lasting lipstick has a slight scent of cocoa butter and hydrates your pout with vitamin E.

2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Face Palette Sculpture

Each holiday season, Hourglass drops a limited-edition palette of its Ambient Lighting Powders, and the 2020 collection includes six versatile shades. Lightly dust three bestselling shades — Mood Exposure, Diffused Light and Dim Light — all over your face for a soft, candlelight glow. Dust on Vibrant Flush, a coral-pink blush, highlight your cheekbone with Glistening Strobe, a pearlescent champagne highlighter and for added warmth use Natural Bronze Light. And don’t forget to add the matching dual-sided Ambient Lighting Edit brush, which is made of synthetic bristles that rarely shed.

3. Olaplex Holiday Hair Fix Kit

Olaplex makes professional-grade hair care products that can help protect your strands against heat damage and color-treatments by rebuilding your hair bonds at a molecular level. The brand created a trio of products designed for weekly at-home use to help moisturize and strengthen hair. It contains a full-sized bottle of No. 3 Hair Perfector pre-treatment and travel-sized versions of No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner, plus a bonus mini version of No.6 Bond Smoother, a serum that keeps flyaways at bay for up to 72 hours.

4. Fresh Sugar Lip Bestsellers Tin

Dry, flaky lips are a pest and clean beauty brand Fresh aims to prevent chapped lips from happening this winter by offering a six-piece set of their Sugar Lips bestsellers. Jojoba seed, avocado, olive, castor and grapeseed oils, coupled with sugar, shea butter and beeswax will leave your pout soft and kissable this holiday season. The lip balms leave behind a light tint, ranging from Sugar Rose, a soft, rosebud pink, to Sugar Honey, a warm caramel. Plus, each lip moisturizer features SPF 15 coverage.

5. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Gift Set

Dyson released a special value gift set featuring their signature beauty product: the Supersonic hair dryer. It has earned high marks from one Shopping contributor as well as celebrity hairstylists. “It prevents heat damage by regulating direct heat on the hair strands, eliminates frizz and provides high shine, which is crucial when it comes to getting the perfect blowout,” said hair stylist Courtney Foster in our guide to the best hair dryers. This lightweight blow dryer sports three speed settings and four temperatures so you can blow out your hair with ease at home. You also receive a wide-tooth comb for sectioning your hair or for raking through curls and a rounded bristle brush for DIY blow outs.

6. Peter Thomas Roth Full-Size Hydra Gel Eye Patch Party

Under-eye patches can reduce signs of aging and hydrate your skin, which is why dermatologists and makeup artists recommend adding them to your skin care routine. This trio from Peter Thomas Roth contains three of his eye patches: Cucumber De-Tox, 24K Gold, and Water Drench eye patches. Tai Young, a celebrity makeup artist on “Grey’s Anatomy” previously told Shopping the Water Drench is her “absolute favorite” and she uses them on both the actors and actresses on the show. She likes to store her eye masks in a mini-fridge for a cooling sensation and to help further reduce puffiness, although it’s not a necessary step.
