Mother's Day is almost upon us and, as a mom and a beauty junkie, I wanted to give you a few ideas for Mother's Day gifties - Sephora style! (All gift suggestions can be found in Sephora stores or on www.sephora.com.)
For the frequent traveler mom:
NARS Artist Palette. If you know a mom who travels quite a bit (that would be me), this palette is a great gift. It's sleek and thin enough to not add much bulk to your travel bag. It has a mirror and contains ten of NARS' top-selling shades - four neutral shadows that can be sheerly pretty for day or smoked-out for night, two shades of the Multiple - one for highlighting and one for adding color to the cheeks, and four fabulous lipsticks.
For the mom who can't afford an island vacation, but wants to feel like she's been on one anyway:
Carol's Daughter A Mango Melange Moment. Includes a shea souffle, cleansing gel, perfume spray and a loofah. All the body products are scented with Carol's Daughter's amazingly tropical Mango Melange scent. This scent is one of my favorites and never fails to make me feel all island girl-y!
For the beauty junkie mom:
Sephora's Summer Blockbuster Palette. This palette is a scaled-down version of the one that flew off the shelves at the end of last year, only to be seen making the rounds of eBay for astronomical prices. 24 eyeshadows, 24 lipglosses, five cheek colors, one translucent shimmer powder, two shadow applicators, a blush brush, and a lip brush. What else could you need?
For the animal activist mom:
Smashbox Palettes for PETA. 100 percent vegan eyeshadows that have never been tested on animals. Comes in two breathtaking trios: Earth Mother (on the left), which is the neutral set and In the Wild, which contains brighter, springier shades.
Stay tuned here! I'll have upcoming posts with more Mother's Day gift ideas!
