You’ve stocked up on stylish gifts, how about a little primping? Choose one of these luxe present that won’t leave you bankrupt.
For the girl who’s impossible to shop for
You don’t know what she likes or worse – she doesn’t know what she likes. Get her one of these items and she’s bound to be happy, but keep the gift receipt just in case ;).
Buying a scent for someone else is tricky. You know what you like, will they like it too? Give her the Fragrance sampler ‘for her’ from Sephora. This pretty beauty bag comes with 12 samples of Sephora’s most sought after scents as well as a voucher for a full size bottle. After sampling all the scents, she can fill out the voucher and redeem it at any Sephora store for the fragrance of her choice. At least you know they’ll use the fragrance!
This gift set from Clinique features five Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms. Let her sample a few, including two of their new shades “Curvy Candy” and “Oversized Orange” and experiment to find which looks best.
Even girls who don’t wear a lot of makeup like to put on a little mascara. This sampler courtesy of Sephora’s Hypnôse Star Mascara Collection features everything you need to work the eyes – a mascara base, mascara, precision point eyeliner and of course eye makeup remover to take it all off at the end of the night.
For the girl on the go
Her typical day? Yoga, then work, happy hour and a night with her man. She’s constantly moving and she needs beauty items that cater to her hectic lifestyle. Gift her one of these items to help her maintain her sexy while she’s out and about.
Girls on the go hate carrying ALL their essentials – it’s space sucking and easy to forget something at home. Sephora’s Brush wand comes with three magnetically connected brushes, that allow you to change the brush tip for your desired look. This is perfect for the gym rat, or the lady who likes to touch up her makeup throughout the day. You may want to give her Daily brush cleaner to keep each brush clean and ready for use!
This eye palette’s six mix and match shadows from Bobbi Brown have everything you need for work and play. Use the solid shades for day and touch up your look with the sparkly shades for night. These neutral shades work on everyone and for every occasion.
For the girl who needs a change
Maybe she’s stuck in a rut or likes to alter her routine faster than you can keep up. Give her any of these items so she can keep up with the latest beauty craze.
Swipe on two coats of polish then sprinkle with pearls while the nail is still wet. Put on a top coat after 20 minutes and VOILA, you’ve got a caviar mani courtesy of Ciate!!
For curly girls who want to straight hair that stays that way – just not FOREVER. Liquid Keratin’s 30 Day Straight Smooth Strong and Long Treatment turns curls into straight, smooth hair in 30 minutes. Results last up to six weeks. So by the time she’s over the straight look it’ll start to fade anyway.
