Have you heard the great news? Sephora finally launched an online website. Sephora.ae offers free shipping on orders over 350aed, complimentary gift wrapping and every order comes with samples.
I created a holiday gift guide for all the special ladies in your life. Put on your stretchy lounge wear, make yourself a latte and get cozy on your couch. This year, instead of hitting the mall, you can buy all your favorite beauty products from the comfort of your own home! Enjoy!
For your friend:
One of my favorite products in Sephora at the moment is the Marc Jacobs Air Blush Soft Glow Duo(175aed, Sephora.ae). I use mine all the time! These pretty blushes made with Japanese air powder give a natural looking radiant flush to the skin. The darker shades serves as a contour while the lighter shade highlights. Combined, your gal pal can customize the color to her liking!
Not sure what color to buy? Kink & Kisses and Flesh & Fantasy are the two most popular shades!
For your mother:
My favorite lipstick and lipgloss combination is Nars Audacious lipstick in Anita (160aed, Sephora.ae) and Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Bound (145aed, Sephora.ae). My own mother is hooked on this set and I think your mom will love it too!
The Audacious lipsticks are unbelievably rich and creamy. One glide of this hydrating lipstick across your lips is all you need for a perfectly pigmented pout. The shade Anita, one of their best-known colors, is a sophisticated antique rose that compliments all skin tones.
The new Lip Glides, which launched in Sephora UAE last month, are soft and non-sticky lip glosses that are beautiful when layered over lipstick or worn by themselves. The shade Bound, a nude pink, is a gorgeous nude pink with a hint of mauve. I have a feeling Bound will soon be known as the "go-to" lip gloss shade in the beauty world.
Your mother will absolutely love these shades and textures. She will rave about them so much that you will end up buying them for yourself. Trust me, I know what I am talking about!
For your child's teacher:
Teachers work hard. So very, very hard! They deserve a bit of pampering and what better way to show your child's educator your appreciation than with a little skin care! I love the brand Korean skin care brand SKINFOOD. All the products are derived from the best, high-quality ingredients found in food.
I recommend the Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2x(110aed, Sephora.ae) as well as the Freshmade Coconut Mask(66aed, Sephora.ae). Both are available exclusively online. The black sugar exfoliating scrub smells wonderful and the sugar crystals dissolve as the scrub is rubbed on the face. The result is smooth, glowing skin that is soft to the touch. The coconut mask is ultra hydrating and smooths and firms the skin.
These products are great for both male and female teachers!
For your sister:
This bottle is everything. Sleek, sophisticated and downright saucy! Good Girl by Carolina Herrera(from 450aed, Sephora.ae) contains the provocative notes of Tuberose, Jasmine Sambac, Tonka Beans and Cocoa to create a seductive and sensuous scent. Perfect for nights out in the city. It is a gift that surely will not be forgotten!
For your daughter:
The Tartiest PRO Amazonian Clay Palette is one of the hottest palettes to come out this season. It contains 20 highly pigmented eyeshadow shades to create endless array of natural to bold "Instagram worthy" looks. Perfect for all skin tones and from naturally derived ingredients, this palette is sure to be a hit with that special little gal in your life (260aed, Sephora.ae).
It is easy to forget about yourself in the mad rush of the holidays! Between the kids being out of school, festive activities and the hustle and bustle of everyday life, stress starts to show...especially on your skin.
The Clarisonic Mia Fit Sonic Cleansing System(850aed, Sephora.ae) is exactly what you need this Christmas. Did you know that this brush removes up to 6x more makeup than your hands alone? Going to bed with makeup on your face is going to do one thing...age your skin. This brush cleanses deep into your skin to remove all traces of makeup, sunscreen and other impurities. It is compact and easy to use. You need it. Treat yourself.
Not a pink person? This device also comes in blue and white!
