Got some last minute gifts to take care of? We love Sephora Favorites samplers. Our two picks in particular are the LashStash and Glitz & Glam. With New Year’s Eve less than two weeks away, we’re already planning our ultra-glam look. There is really no other day of the year where you can go all out with glitz (sparkle shoes, anyone?) than on the last day on the calendar. If you have a makeup addict on your list, check these out. $40 and under, both kits (as well as most of the others available) come with a little bit of everything. LashStash is equipped with 10 of Sephora’s top selling mascaras and a handy eyelash curler. Some of our personal favorites such as Benefit BadGal Lash (great for volume!) and Blinc Kiss Me (wonderful separation, and no smudging, we promise) are packaged up for sampling. 

To get (or give) a gorgeous glow, the Glitz & Glam kit comes with everything you could need to be photo and spotlight ready for the holidays, or the whole year (though these little jars won’t last that long.) Overall, both are great values, and any beauty junkie would squeal at the variety to play with. $39 (Glitz & Glam) and $40 (LashStash); sephora.com

Packed with deep, shimmering blues and icy greys and pinks for eyes and fresh rose shades for lips and cheeks, this limited edition Denim & Rose face palette is the beauty equivalent of dressed-up denim. Whether you’re in the mood for flushed cheeks or a sparkling, smoky eye, you’ll have plenty of options for day or night. The dark denim packaging is almost as pretty as the makeup within.

While everyone was oohing and ahhing over Sandra’s super-shiny hair at the Oscars, we were busy obsessing over J Lo’s  perfect eyebrows! Yes, there are many salons that can shape similar brows, but remember the recession?! Not everyone can afford a trip to the brow Dr every month. The best advice is to lighten your brows a shade with dye, but it isn’t safe to recommend any at home kits, because the trick is to know how light to go. Worst case scenario you end up with no eyebrows, or disproportionate eyebrows…it can get scary. Second to dye, brow shaping kits are a must-have and the best way to perfect your arch. 

And the nominees for best eyebrow shaping kits are:

Alice-In-Wonderland-Poster2.jpgThe highly anticipated Alice in Wonderland movie is being released next month, and in celebration of the event, two of our favorite brands have launched goodies we think you’ll be excited about.

 

 

OPI_Alice_In_Wonderland.jpgOPI Alice in Wonderland Collection is a small, eclectic collection of shades, but we think it’s the opposite of nonsensical. These magical glitters and cremes create a fantastic mix of eccentricity sure to delight any nail polish fanatic. Colors include Absolutely Alice (dreamy blue glitter), Mad as a Hatter (multi-coloured glitter), Thanks So Muchness! (shimmery red) and Off with Her Red (sizzling hot red). Limited Edition. Mini set, $10 at amazon.com

Urban Decay Disney Alice In Wonderland Palette features a top that opens to reveal a pop-up scene of Alice in the mushroom forest and just behind her, a makeup lover’s dreamland: a fierce collection of 16 eyeshadows, 2 liners and a primer. Though we dream of seeing Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, we admit we’re loving this palette just a hare more. Limited Edition. $52, sephora.com
