What It Is:Well it’s Sephora’s annual Colour Daze Blockbuster palette, on a perfunctory level – a compact-sized cube loaded with over $400 worth of make-up for just $60 CDN. I’m talking everything any girl could ever want – eye shadows, cream liners, glosses, eye and lip top coats, blushes, creams, luminizers, and of course, brushes to actually create your flawless face.
But the real reason I wanted to write this post was to let you know that Sephora has officially kicked off the holiday buying season with a way-cool gift for Canadians: a fully-integrated, bilingual Sephora.ca! This means all of the pricing is finally in Canadian dollars, lower shipping rates for Canucks (+ free shipping on orders over $75), and of course, access to the new, easier-to-navigate Sephora site. And if you stop by there right now, you can take advantage of two sweet promotions. One, enter to win an amazing trip to the Sephora of your choice for you and a few friends to blow $2,500 on your favourite beauty buys. Two, when you place an order right now, you can use the coupon code PARTY to score a goodie bag of six luxury-sized samples from some of the store’s exclusive and high-end brands.
Back to the palette? I bought an earlier generation of the annual Sephora mega-blockbuster makeup offering and I have to tell you how awesome these sets are. There are tons of finishes to suit anyone’s style (and encourage them to expand their makeup horizons), and the compact size makes it great for traveling or ladies looking to simplify their beauty cupboard or drawer. There’s a reason this sensational set is released just before the holidays kids…
Who It’s For:Your younger sister, as a step up from her drugstore beauty buys without breaking the bank. Your cohabitating bestie, so she isn’t clogging up the bathroom with what her boyfriend deems ‘junk’. Your jetsetting sibling, to tote in their carry-on when they’re zipping around the country for work.
What It Costs:As I mentioned, $60 for the whole shebang. Pretty nicely priced for a Christmas gift oui?
Where It’s At:Sephora stores across the nation, plus the all new Sephora.ca!
