Sephora’s holiday shopping event kicks off November 1st for Rouges, who have early access to the event. Rouges can save 20% off all purchases online and in-store with code HOLIDAYSAVE. Starting on November 7th, VIBs can save 15% off and Insiders can save 10% off with the same code, HOLIDAYSAVE. The event ends November 11th for all tiers.
Also, for those at 10% off and 15% off, always cross-reference the brands/products you have your eye on to see if they’re likely to go on sale for 15-25% off in the next few weeks. Many brands participate in Black Friday/Cyber Monday offerings at least better than 10%.
In this gift guide, I’ve focused on highlighting the best of the best holiday releases, whether individual shades or sets, but these are holiday-specific and products available at Sephora. I’ll be following up with a second guide that focuses on my favorite permanent products and formulas.
I also wanted to take a moment to highlight some of my favorite non-makeup sets that I’ve seen at Sephora, as I don’t want to purchase a set just to photograph it, but these are brands and formulas I have tested over the years and think the sets offer good value.
- Dr. Jart+ Cica Rescue Kit ($42.00, $71.00 Value) — on my personal shopping list (I’ve liked a lot of the Cicapair products I’ve tried, but I haven’t tried the Calming Mist or the Color Correcting Treatment yet)
- First Aid Beauty Fablantis ($49.00, $112 value)
- Fresh Unmask the Magic Gift Set ($75.00, $110 value) — on my personal shopping list!
- Jack Black The Balm Squad ($19.00, $24 value)
- Lancome Bi-Facil Home & Away Set ($52.00, $69.50 Value)
- Olaplex Holiday Hair Fix Set ($58.00, $84 value)
