Holiday Gift List 2016: CLEAN Reserve 6-Piece Travel Set Spray Layering Collection #CLEAN #ReserveLayeringCollection #TravelSet #SEPHORA #HolidayGiftList2016

(product photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)

$45.00 ($75.00 Value)

Each CLEAN Reserve Layering Collection fragrance was created to be dynamic and evoke, not memories of the past, but possibilities and experiences yet to be discovered.Each fragrance is linear without much movement from top top to bottom, making it ideal for layering and blending.

The Six CLEAN Reserve Fragrances are:
  • Sueded Oud: a fresh and creamy approach to a traditional oud fragrance and an exploration of the fluid movement between the brighter and darker facets of fragrance.
  • Velvet Flora: captures the unique contrast of bergamot and leathery woods, awakening the senses with freshness and warmth.
  • Blonde Rose: is a sophisticated blend of rose, jasmine and peony. It reminds of the classic, yet has a modern femininity that's fresh and sexy.
  • Reserve Blend Rain: captures the energy of a rainforest and the moment after a fresh rainfall with an un expected combination of fruity floral notes, fresh patchouli vetiver and musks.
  • Amber Saffron: is an irresistibly fresh blend of red fruits and delicate florals. Soothing musks, warm amber and exquisite saffron leave a lasting impression. 
  • Reserve Blend Warm Cotton: envelops you in pure freshness that's bright and comfortable. Its essence lies in the irresistible freshness of translucent florals and the soft feel of skin-loving musks.
The set contains (6) 0.17 fl.oz./5mL bottles of the scents of the Travel Spray size CLEAN Spray Layering Collection. What is nice is that you can mix and match the fragrances depending on your mood and whimsy. One day I might want to wear Blonde Rose mixed with Amber Saffron. And another I might want to wear Velvet Flora mixed with Sueded Oud. This is a whole different experiment in fragrance and how you wear it. 

It is a great gift for anyone who love fragrances, especially likes to play with them, likes to be adventurous with fragrances. It would be a great gift for a relative, possibly. Or you might want this one for yourself?

This set retails for $45.00 and is a $75.00 value. It is available at www.sephora.com and in SEPHORA stores.

Holiday Gift List 2016: Excellent Stocking stuffers..Airbrush & Confetti Sponges #AirbrushSponge #ConfettiSponge #sponges #SEPHORA #SEPHORACOLLECTION #HolidayGiftList2016

(product photos courtesy of www.sephora.com)

I have some great stocking stuffer gifts here. These are perfect for anyone who wears foundation, concealer, contour, highlight, etc. Basically anyone who wears makeup! They are adorable sponges that come in cute little gift containers. The perfect little gift to add in to round out a gift or to make up a gift basket. Dream big!

$18.00
Gnome For The Holidays Airbrush Sponge Set contains three cute, gnome-shaped blender sponges of varying sizes. These sponges apply makeup to all different surfaces of the face precisely, from hard-to-reach areas to allover blending. Their unique shape allows for contouring and precision application, and they work well with powder, cream and liquid formulas for a flawlessly blended look. This set is cruelty-free and latex-free. 

I love these sponges. They work great with liquid foundation, cream foundation, contouring cream, highlighter, and cream-to-powder formulas of makeup. These would make a great stocking stuffer, item to round out a gift basket, part of a Secret Santa gift or just part of a gift that you are getting a makeup lover. Or, you could pick them up for yourself. 

$12

The Confetti Set of 5 Mini Sponges is a set of 5 sponges used to apply makeup products. This fun set of mini latex-free 3D sponges in a variety of shapes helps achieve specific applications. The mini sponge size applies products to targeted areas, under the eyes, in the browbone area and around the nose; and is perfect for color correction, highlighting and contouring and covering dark spots and blemishes. The sponges work well with liquids, powders, creams and minerals to provide sheer-to-buildable coverage. The varied shapes allow for detailed application in hard-to-reach places as well as smoothing and buffing product all over the forehead, cheeks and chin. These sponges are best used when wet. 
These little sponges work miracles with makeup. You can do wonders with  them. They come in a few fun shapes that really help you get to the hard-to-reach places, like under and around the inner eyes and around the nose. They clean up easily with soap and water. I like that you can use liquis, cream and powder forms of makeup with the too.  
These sponge set make great gifts for any makeup junkie. Or for yourself. They are available at www.sephora.com or SEPHORA stores.

Holiday Gift Guide 2015: SEPHORA Collection Ombré Obsession Face Palette #SEPHORA #ombreobsession #blush #holidaygiftguide

(product photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)

SEPHORA Collection Ombre Obsession Face Palette
If you are a makeup junkie or know a makeup junkie (like myself), then this gift is perfect for that makeup junkie. It is the SEPHORA Collection Ombré Obsession Face Palette. This palette is made up of four ombré shades of blush, four single shades and one universally flattering luminizer. Anyone into beauty will love this palette. This is a fun and unexpected approach to blush. Use each shade in ombré pans on their own or mix together with others for a custom color. Experiment with finishes, mixing mattes and shimmers. Finish off with the luminizer in the center pan.

In this palette there are four cool shades and four warm shades. I have been trying them all out this past month and love all of the shades. Below you can see some photos of the shades with and without the luminizer used. The shades themselves don’t have names, so I cannot tell you which shades I am wearing in each photo. In some of the photos I have the blush more pronounced, that I because I wanted the makeup to have a more dramatic flare. In some it is softer and less pronounced. These blushes have great pigmentation and little to no fallout. The luminizer is wonderful, it looks good on top of all of the blushes. It is definitely a neutral shade. These blushes are my new go-to palette that is replacing some of the other blushes I had been using for a long time. 

Below these photos were taken over the course of a month and a half using the SEPHORA Collection Ombré Obsession Face Palette

(above: wearing the SEPHORA Collection Ombré Obsession Face Palette in all of these shots. Different shades in each photo. Also used luminizer in some of the photos, you can definitely see it in the first two photos)

This palette makes a great gift idea for any beauty junkie, makeup junkie, friend, mom, sister, or even a for Secret Santa gift that you need. It also makes a great gift for yourself. The price point is great. I love this and will be using it forever. It has great blushes and they are really nice on as you can see.

The SEPHORA Collection Ombré Obsession Face Palette retails for $32.00 and is available online at www.sephora.com and in SEPHORA stores.

NEW! Sephora Announces Innovation Lab to Usher in the Future of Retail #SEPHORA

 
SEPHORA, a digital leader in beauty retail, today unveiled SEPHORA Innovation Lab, which will encompass both a physical space in San Francisco, as well as programs that foster the culture of innovation development and deployment along with grooming SEPHORA's next generation of digital leaders.
 
"Innovation has always been in our DNA," said Calvin McDonald, President and CEO for SEPHORA Americas. "We disrupted beauty by being the first to offer clients access to premium beauty out from behind the department store make-up counters, and we want to keep that spirit and bold tenacity alive. The new Lab will tap the collective creativity of our 14,000 employees nationwide, grow the next generation of leaders, and elevate Sephora's digital future."
The Innovation Lab is a space in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco where the team can ideate, test, dream, experiment and learn. As new ideas surface, the Lab team will be responsible for sourcing, developing, evaluating, testing and eventually launching new offerings and technologies for shopping in the store and on-the-go. SEPHORA has teamed with Google, Apple and others in the past, and plans to evaluate additional strategic alliances in the future, through the Lab program.  
 
Through its "Think Tank" program, SEPHORA Innovation Lab will groom the next generation of leaders, who will be developing the "next big idea" in retail. The Think Tank team meets monthly and works to solve for the way we shop five years from now. The Lab will also oversee "Idea Central," a program which seeks to source and deliver on ideas from employees nationwide – regardless of rank or function within the company.
 
"We're completely focused on making shopping more efficient, intelligent and fun for our clients," said Julie Bornstein, Chief Marketing and Digital Officer for SEPHORA. "We spend a lot of time walking in the shoes of our clients as inspiration for dreaming up new technologies and partnering with technology companies in the Bay Area to develop innovative solutions for new ways to shop."
 
SEPHORA is unveiling four new digital experiences that demonstrate SEPHORA's digital leadership:
  • Beacons – SEPHORA will be using Beacons in-stores nationwide to deliver timely, personalized alerts to clients who opt-in. Shoppers can receive things like birthday alerts, loyalty program updates and be notified when new trainings are happening in-store.
  • Pocket Contour – SEPHORA will be releasing a new digital experience in partnership with Map My Beauty, the first-of-its-kind cross-platform personal virtual make-up artist application, that takes the mystery out of contouring, a growing consumer trend in beauty. By analyzing a photo of you on mobile, SEPHORA can help you identify your face-shape, and give you personalized step-by-step guidance on how to apply make-up for the contoured look you want to achieve.  Try it at m.sephora.com/pocketcontour
  • Augmented Reality - SEPHORA has created its first augmented reality experience for clients via the Sephora-To-Go mobile app for iPhone®. Launching in April, clients can engage with custom content by hovering over nine brand founder faces, like Josie Maran, Laura Mercier, Kat Von D and others, featured in the SEPHORA windows and display cases. Scanning each image with augmented reality will show content options, like brand founder interviews, product videos, animated GIFs, YouTube playlists and product pages on Sephora.com, all without leaving the app.
  • SEPHORA Flash - Frequent shoppers who want SEPHORA products even faster can sign-up for SEPHORA Flash, which allows customers free two-day shipping on all products. Flash is free for Rouge Beauty Insider members, and $10/year for all non-Rouge members.
"The Innovation Lab and dedicated management team gives us an incredible opportunity to drive the future of innovation," said Bridget Dolan, Vice President of SEPHORA Innovation Lab. "Given our location in the heart of the digital and tech scene, we have strong visibility into the players and trends, both on and offline, that could be molded into Sephora-centric experiences.  We have a relentless hunger for developing technologies and networking with emerging technology companies that might seem unexpected now, but could define the future of retail."
Bridget Dolan leads the Innovation Lab and supporting team. The team will balance time between the SEPHORA Innovation Lab and SEPHORA Corporate Headquarters. All of the new experiences announced with the SEPHORA Innovation Lab will roll-out to SEPHORA nationwide, starting this month.

Complete with all the essential brushes needed to do a flawless face, the brushes themselves are synthetic and are embossed with a golden floral design that matches the bag. The set contains: a powder brush, an angled blush brush, an eye brush, an angled liner brush and a smudge brush. I think these brushes are pretty darn good. I used them to apply the eye shadow in the photos below. They did a very good job, so I can say that this set is worth the money. It will make a great gift for anyone who is looking to add to their repertoire of brushes. This is the kind of gift that you get for a true beauty junkie!


Here is a look I did with the Radiant Cut Jewel Palette, these items are bold. There is not a “mild” way to do a look with them. I am reminiscing of the 80’s here. And I love it. The eye shadow palette reminds me of an exotic bird. And I love the brightness of it but it is also smoky in a way. You can do a very smoky eye too. The Velvet Lipstick is so nice and goes on very creamy. It is highly pigmented.

Review: SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Fire & Earth Lip Ombre Lipsticks and Waterproof Universal Lip Liner

(photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)
SEPHORA PANTONE UNIVERSE Fire & Earth Lip Ombre Lipsticks This fall SEPHORA has really outdone themselves with one of the most unusual lipstick sets I have ever seen! The SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Fire & Earth Lip Ombre Lipsticks are two deluxe lipsticks that are color coordinated and contain a glossy shade to add brilliant shine to lips and a matte-shimmery shade that you can use create a harmonious look. The velvety texture glides on easily so that the shades layers easily to create mutli-dimensional looks. Each shade comes out when you push in the and click the other side. Use one shade or both to create the ombre look that is so popular this season.
There are two sets of the Fire & Earth Ombre Lipsticks. Deep Claret (a gorgeous deep burgundy) and Carnelian (shimmery fiery pumpkin) work synergistically to give a gorgeous glow to the lips. Grenadine (bright poppy) and Cornsilk (shimmery gold) also work together to give lips the ombre look or a separate look if you desire.

I really like the colors that they came out with. They are warm toned for sure, but Deep Claret is a little bit more cooler and can be worn alone to keep it cool or with Carnelian to warm it up. Below you will see different looks on my lips, the lipsticks alone or worn in an ombre effect. I found Deep Claret to be a little bit lighter in pigment than Carnelian and Grenadine. Grenadine is a very pretty poppy color, you can see how it becomes a gorgeous pumpkin like tone with Cornsilk on top of it. Cornsilk is very shimmery but goes on beautifully over Grenadine, as you can see in the bottom photo. I like the ombre effect for a change of pace, it is something fun and different!

With these I used the Waterproof Universal Lip Liner ($9.00, http://bit.ly/1a3liRI), which is clear. What I like about this is you can use any color of lipstick over it and it prevents bleeding and feathering of lipstick. It has hyaluronic acid in it to help give it some glide and make the lip liner go on so smoothly! It is great because it lasts forever and it is waterproof. Setting agents help to keep the color in place all day.

SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Fire & Earth Lip Ombre Lipsticks are $22.00 each and are available at www.sephora.com or SEPHORA stores. These lipsticks look amazing with the Elemental Energy Eye Shadow Palette that I reviewed (http://bit.ly/16Wy7Lc). All of these items are part of the beautiful Elemental Energy collection that is out this fall from SEPHORA. Be sure to take a look at the Molten Liquid Liners (http://bit.ly/1dFtREG) and Jumbo Waterproof Eye Pencils (http://bit.ly/1cUq34G) that are part of the collection.
