Sephora has Giftopia.  Here are last minute gift ideas.  You can get everyone on your shopping list the perfect present of beauty.


I really love Sephora.   I must say it is my favorite store.   So it was so much fun getting a big box of holiday gift sets to review.


The Stila Art of the Fine Line Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner set is a God send.  My eyes tear and often my black eyeliner is smudged on my cheek and has long ago left my eyes.  These Stila eyeliners make a precise line and stay in place all day long.  I really like the blue and of course black is always a staple.

If you want a long lasting, smudge proof lip and who doesn’t this is your go to collection.  People are too rushed putting on make up in the morning to go out, but taking that extra step and using a lip liner can really make an outstanding difference to have a finished model look.  My mom always taught me that.
