ColourPop Polite AF Super Shock Shadow Collection
Anyone who knows ColourPop knows just how pigmented and rich their products are! In this Sephora exclusive gift set, the Polite AF Super Shock Shadow Collection features a set of 6 long-wearing cream powder eyeshadows for $30. Unlike ordinary eyeshadows, these products are uniquely formulated to have a bouncy-like texture that is not only super creamy but also has a huge color payoff. With just one swipe, you’ll have intense pigmentation with zero fallout. The colors offered in this collection, Sequin, Stereo, Birthday Girl, Birthday Cake, Drift, and Deep Dive are complimentary for all skin tones and will make any eye color pop! For such a low price point, you’re able to get a set of velvet smooth shimmers that you can use every day. These are great for makeup artists since they’re always on the go and need compact versions of universal colors in their kit.
GlamGlow Let It Glow! SUPERMUD Set
You can never go wrong with skin products for the holidays! GlamGlow has been one of the hottest brands in skincare and they create fast-acting and innovative mud treatments that deliver instant, visible results. This Let it Glow! gift set includes four treatments: a full-size Supermud Clearing, and mini sizes of Youthmud Tinglexfoliate, Gravitymud Firming, and Thirstymud Hydrating. All of these products are used for any skin type whether you’re dry, oily, combo, or normal and makes sure they’re smoother and brighter after use. Supermud Clearing Treatment fights all common skin concerns, while Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment—the 10-minute facial in a tube—smooths and brightens the complexion. The ultimate pre-makeup treatment, Gravitymud Firming Treatment is an innovative peel-off mud treatment that instantly leaves skin feeling firmer and most lifted. And Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin for instant nourishment. Give this to anyone who is masking obsessed or is in need of a little TLC from time to time!
Too Faced Best Year Ever Holiday Collection
To cap off an amazing year for makeup, Too Faced has released their Best Year Ever Makeup Collection. This $285 valued gift set is sold for only $49 at Sephora and Ulta and includes a deluxe size Better Than Size mascara and three separate palettes for a total of 18 matte and shimmer shadows. Each palette in Natural Beauty, I Believe in Pink, and Super Fun Night includes six pigment-rich eyeshadows and one face product. They make for a very convenient gift since you can separate the palettes and use them as three different gifts instead of just bundling it all up as one present. Perfect for gift-giving, it also comes in a limited-edition makeup bag that says “I have way more makeup at home” and includes a step-by-step how-to Glamour Guide with looks that you can create from the items provided.
If someone you know has everything from Sephora, Ulta, and beyond– why not give them the gift of learning makeup artistry! Enrolling in our LA makeup school’s Professional Course not only breaks down the basics but they’re also able to enhance and cultivate their own creative skills! They can play with all sorts of makeup from our amazing brand sponsors included in their special Chic Studios makeup kit and classroom!
