Thank you to Sephora for providing me with product in exchange for my review. All thoughts shared are my own.
What do moms really want for Mother's Day? Most will probably say that they don't need gifts, they just want to spend the day with their family. While that's true for me, as well, it's always nice to be shown special appreciation, and I've never been known to turn down a nice gift. One of the things that I don't spend a lot of money on or typically spoil myself with is makeup, skin care, or beauty products. I usually wait for a holiday or special occasion to roll around, and request needed or highly desired beauty items as gifts. While beauty products can be expensive, it's nice to know that you can make up a lovely gift for mom from Sephora without breaking the bank or sacrificing quality.
Sephora is not only a favorite store of mine (I love to just go in there and play with different products and discover new looks), it's a favorite brand. For a long time, I was unaware that Sephora had their own extensive product line. It's pretty impressive, too! They have their own line of makeup, brushes, skincare, and accessories, like travel bags.
Sephora is a leader in global prestige retail, teaching and inspiring clients to play in a world of beauty. Owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the world's leading luxury goods group, Sephora has earned its reputation as a beauty trailblazer with its expertise, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit.
It's easy to pamper a special mom in your life this Mother's Day, with a range of fabulous gifts from Sephora. Here, I'll show you how to make a special gift, using various items.
Start with a travel case...
This adorable makeup travel case is perfect for summertime. Its lively lobster design is an exclusive Sephora design. It's incredibly roomy inside on the bottom portion, with plenty of room for large items, pallets, skincare or haircare products.
This train case is perfect to bring along on all of your summer adventures!
What it is:
A portable soft train case that organizes your beauty essentials, perfect for travel.
This versatile, zippered case comes complete with labeled compartments ideal for the storage of beauty essentials. The brush holder protects the integrity of your favorite brushes and the mesh net pocket keeps product organized, yet easily accessible. The coated canvas exterior is water-resistant and keeps your products safe and secure.
Starting off with a good makeup bag, train case or toiletries case is the perfect 'basket' for a Mother's Day gift basket filled with Sephora beauty goodies!
Give the lips a little love! Add some lip product to the gift basket.
Sephora has a fantastic collection of lip products. Their Rouge Shine Lipstick is just $12.50, and is available in a whopping 54 colors! If you prefer a bit of a stain, try their Color Lip Last products, at $14.00/each, and in a variety of colors. This will provide lasting color for several hours, and wear through whatever the day throws your way. If you're like me and you prefer a lipgloss, the Rouge Lip Tint is for you. It's available in eight colors, and is $12.00. If you're not looking for a high shine lip color, try the Cream Lip Stain at just $14.00.
