What it does:
Developed with Sephora’s Pro Artistry Team, this exclusive #SHAPEMATTERS palette is a chic, portable go-to for sculpting your cheekbones, perfecting your nose, creating an arched brow, and enhancing your eyes with each stroke of alluring color and-richly pigmented liner. It features a #SHAPEMATTERS lookbook insert to make contouring your face easy. Achieve a whole new look with these 16 cult-favorite shades—including Aubergine and Sumatra—in silky foolproof formulas.

These three face contouring powders complement a number skin tones, the highlighter is perfect for strobing, and Smashbox’s Photo Op Eyeshadows have won beauty awards for their seamless blendability. (The shadow’s micro-milled powder formula may kick up on the palette, but these long-lasting shades apply smoothly and evenly.) Redefine and set arches with the Brow Tech Powders and wax, and then use the included double-ended brush to contour wider and bolder eyes. This all-in-one palette includes a convenient, full-size mirror.

THIS IS INSANE. It’s a $276 value and you are paying $55 $44. $44. FOURTY FOUR DOLLARS. THIS IS INSANE. I’m definitely picking this guy up for a Christmas gift. ANYONE would love this. I’m too amazed by the price to say anything more.


MAKE UP FOR EVER – Artist Palette Volume 2 – Artistic $25, $136 value. After 20% discount: $20. Savings: $5.

image source:

What it does:
This palette features the coveted, easy-to-use Artist Shadow formula for endless eye looks—ranging from beautifully natural to highly artistic. With its advanced gel-powder formula blended with ultrafine pigments, each shade leaves a smooth, even finish that leaves lids ultra-saturated with highly-blendable, lasting color. The shades are organized in trios so you can effortlessly create playful, bold, and sultry looks. This palette includes an illustrated, step-by-step application techniques by MAKE UP FOR EVER’s founder and creative director, Dany Sanz, to help you sweep on a number of artist-inspired eye looks.

Okay, first thing first. That price is insane. It was $44 but has been discounted to $25. But, I’ve heard through the grapevine that it’s going to be included in this weeks Weekly Wow. So that makes it probably $20, maybe $15. If it was marked down to $20, assuming Weekly Wows are included in the VIB sale, that would make it $16. If it was marked down to $15, that would make it $12. I DIED. Once again that’s just a rumor that I’ve heard and I don’t know for sure if the discount can be applied, but if it is that’s the price of a drugstore palette and the value is insane.

Also – there are three or four of these palettes this price applies to. The image and link are just for the one I’m going to get.

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette $42. After 20% discount: $33.60 Savings: $8.40.

This is a makeup and skincare gift set but I’m putting it under skin care because there is more skincare than makeup. Okay, now that that is out of the way… THIS SET IS AMAZING. I got it earlier this year and loved it. The mascara is one of my all-time favorites, the eye cream is good and the under eye masks are great. You could break these up or keep them together for the perfect stocking stuffer.

What it is:
A thirst-quenching trio that hydrates and soothes even the most sensitive skin types.

I mentioned the Moisturizing Sorbet in my latest monthly favorites and let me tell you, it has made such a difference in my skin. I have combo oily skin, it’s also sensitive. During the fall and winter months, it gets very fickle and wants to be red and dry. I also almost always have a breakout on my forehead. This stuff has cleared up my skin so much, it’s never been this clear. My redness is so much less. It’s amazing! I’m almost out of it so I’m stocking up with this kit. After the discount, it’s $39.20, and it’s $39 (regular price, not including discount) for the moisturizer alone.

tarte – Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer Rainforest of the Sea™ $39. After 20% discount: $31.20. Savings: $7.80.

THIS IS SO NICE. To be honest, I kind of prefer the Moisturizing Sorbet talked about above for everyday, but anytime I’m really dry this is my go to. It just does something and it’s like my skin got a drink of water!

tarte – Tight & Bright Clay Multi-Mask $40. After 20% discount: $32 Savings: $8

philosophy – Raspberry Sorbet $18. After 20% discount: $14.40 Savings: $3.60.


image source:


THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. Buy it for someone and you will now be their favorite person. It lathers, a little goes a long way, IT IS AWARD WINNING. I bought two bottles last year and I have half a bottle left (I use it regularly). They have many different scents, Cinnamon Buns and Senorita Margarita are my favorites but I want to try this one this year. Also at some point during the holiday season, they usually go unlisted on sale for like $12.

Sephora Favorites – Skin Wonderland $64, $214 value. After 20% discount: $51.20. Savings: $12.80.

Tweezerman tweezers are probably the most popular and best you can get. Why not get them with lips on them? Plus Huda is so talented.
