Sephora Holiday 2015 Christmas Dinner & Holiday Gift Guide!

Posted by roseannetangrs in Events

Hey Everyone!


Aren’t you glad the holidays are nearly here! I’m so excited. Of course along with the holidays comes the season of gift giving and I was happy to attend the Sephora Holiday 2015 Christmas Dinner earlier this week. During the dinner, we got a sneak peek into what sets and beauty gifts we can get for our loved ones this Christmas so let’s take a closer look at my favourite ones!


To be honest, I thought Sephora had the best and most interesting gifts this year. I feel like Sephora brand products are actually a bit underrated – they’re always super on trend and their products are not bad at all. Some key things to look forward to is the Sephora Advent Calendar (SGD$69) filled with bath and accessory suprises including little gifts from fizzing cubes to eyeshadows and lip pencils. It makes a great early Christmas gift so you can start counting down on December 1st. I also thought the Color Wonderland Sephora palette (SGD$85) featured below on the right is very impressive. There are so many shades of eyeshadow and even highlighter that you can use and it’s similar to opening a wonderous book of color. I really like it. I noticed a lot of mini book palettes as well. It is certainly an extensive collection you should check out.


If you’re into Too Faced like I am, then you’re in for a treat! The Too Faced Le Grande Palais (SGD$80) set is amazing and features 18 pigment rich eyeshadows (mostly an amazing glitter texture), bronzer, blush, highlighter as well as mini mascara, primer and a melted lip color. If there was anything I’d ask for this Christmas, it would be this! They have also done really cute mini versions of a lot of their most well-known products that make great sock stuffers or presents.


Marc Jacobs was also the talk of the night with their Sofia Le Marc Collection (SGD$65) this Holiday 2015. This collection features five mini muse-inspired velvety Le Marc Lip Creme lipsticks. They are so adorable and come in a mini chic clutch. The Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 20 (SGD$145) is also an amazing eye palette that contains a mix of shimmery metallics and buttery mattes.


Tarte’s Holidaze Collection’s eye opener was the Tarte Light of the Party set (SGD$79). It’s similar in product offering to the Too Faced Le Grande Palais but it has 24 eyeshadows instead of 18 and it contains a double ended eyeshadow brush. I love the motif this season, sort of like a fun aztec design that is really quite pretty and dazzling. Another notable product not featured here but possibly in an upcoming video is called Nude Stix (around the SGD $30 range) – think make-up in creamy sticks only. You can bring them along as touch-up or easy fixes on the go! I got to bring some home so hopefully I can do a review soon!


Overall, it was a fantastic night. Sephora took up the Luxe restaurant in Keong Saik which happens to the next street to my office and the food was a fusion of western with Singaporean notes as well. Our appetizer was the octopus with a bit of sambal to it. I loved the Mulled wine which was delicious and very nostalgic.


We ended the night making terraniums! It was a fun little activity. By the way, in exciting news – Sephora has just recently acquired and Luxola will no longer be Luxola but will become in the coming months ahead. I still remember when Luxola JUST started out and what an amazing journey it’s been for them!


Thanks so much Sephora for having me! I hope you were able to see more of what you can get your friends this Holiday season at Sephora! There’s lots to offer, even more so I think than last year. Also if you’re interested in gifting your friends one of my make-up classes, I have lots in store! Follow my adventures on @bloombyroseanne on instagram to stay updated!
