Sephora Holiday 2012 Gift Guide

At my last trip to Sephora, I noticed a lot of new holiday collections and sets out. These are a great way to give someone a gift you know they're going to love. I especially recommend the Sephora Favorites sets, you really can't go wrong with those. These sets give you a great deal for your money and you can break them up and split them into many other gifts as well. 

My two other picks are the Tarte Lipsurgence set and the Baby its bold outside set, which are both fantastic prices for the amount of products you get. This is also a great time for you to sample and try brands you may not otherwise try at full size. Last holiday season, I noticed the sets, especially the Sephora Favorites were all on sale after Christmastime, so if you can hold out, you can get an even better deal! Happy Shopping! 

(sorry for the picture quality, I recently got some s*** for taking pictures in-store, but all is resolved and you can expect much more to come!) Stock photos property of
