When it comes to shopping bags, the mere sight of a Sephora bag makes my heart skip a beat.
Pretty much, anything you can buy at Sephora will always be a winner in my eyes, but if your budget is tight this year and can’t afford some of the more pricier sets, then take a look at their own in-house brand, Sephora Collection.
Sephora Collection has just about any beauty item you could possibly want or ask for, in additional to a killer accessory line as well. I always love checking out what they come out with since their sets are always a great value and the products are typically great quality (and a lot of their stuff is made in France, very fancy!).
If you’re looking for some great ideas, then keep reading…
Sephora Collection Frosted Party Advent Calendar
Okay so it’s technically past December 1, but there’s more than 24 days in December, so if you still want to pick up an advent calendar, look into the Sephora Collection one.
The Frosted Party Advent Calendar (C$60) opens up to reveal 24 windows that contain beauty surprises and other accessories. This advent calendar has a variety of beauty, skincare body, and accessories in it, 11 of which are limited-edition items.

As far as advent calendars go, I wouldn’t say this one is the best one I’ve seen, but I do feel like whoever you gift this to will use the products. Aside from a few items in here, I think everything is very usable and since a lot of them are small, it makes for great travel goodies.
This is sold out online, but check to see if your local store still has it in stock.
Sephora Collection Frosted Party Multi-Sensorial Face Masks Set
At only C$21, the Sephora Collection Frosted Party Multi-Sensorial Face Masks Set (C$30 value) is a great gift for your best gal pals.
This set includes three limited-edition masks that target different skincare benefits and textures. Included in the set is the Hemp Mousse Mask, Grapefruit Peeling Mask, and the Peppermint Gum Mask, all of which are 50ml each.
All three mask is geared towards a different skin concern, whether that’s acne and blemishes, pores, or oiliness. The Hemp Mousse mask contains hemp extract of natural origin to reduce the look of blemishes, whereas the Grapefruit Peeling Mask contains grapefruit extract to help nourish skin, and the Peppermint Gum Mask has peppermint extract in it to help tone skin.
You can gift this set as one gift or split it up depending on your receivers’ skin concerns. These products can also be cocktailled together to create a custom mask regimen.
Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Collection
For the lip lover, the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Collection (C$37, valued at C$111) is the perfect choice.
This set contains six full-sizes of their Cream Lip Stains, which are a liquid lipstick. There are four matte shades and two metal finishes in this set to give you holiday-ready lips, no matter the occasion.
I’ve been a fan of this formula for awhile and although they call it a “stain”, it’s just a liquid lipstick that is moisturizing on the lips (thanks to avocado extract) and doesn’t budge. At first glance, I wasn’t too thrilled with these colours since they all seem pretty dark, but once I got to swatching them, I really fell in love with each and every shade.
Like all of these products, you can either gift this as is, or together as the set. Either way, whoever you give this to will absolutely adore it. Best part is, you’re actually only paying for three shades in here since one of these retails for C$18.50, so it’s a total win-win!
Sephora Collection Winter Time Eye and Face Palette
When it comes to makeup gifts, you can really never go wrong with a palette.
Sephora Collection has a couple to choose from this season, including the Winter Time Eye and Face Palette (C$24, valued at C$85). Open up the sparkly silver case to reveal eight eyeshadows and three highlighters in neutral tones.
This palette is great for the holidays and beyond since it contains warm and cool tones, as well as matte and shimmer shadows, giving you endless holiday look options. The highlighters are also stunning and suit pretty much any skin tone since there are three shades to choose from.
The makeup look above was created using this palette and I actually used the pink highlight as a blush and the white one as the highlight.
Sephora Collection Winter Eyes Eyeshadow Palette
If you’re looking strictly for eyeshadows, then take a gander at the Sephora Collection Winter Eyes Eyeshadow Palette (on sale for C$16, valued at C$59!).
This palette has the same sparkly silver casing at the Winter Time palette, but instead opens up to 16 eyeshadows from neutrals to smoky tones.
This palette features just about every shade that will take you from daytime to evening in a variety of finishes: matte, shimmer, and metallics. The only thing I don’t like about this palette is the size. Although it’s slim, it’s very long and will be a challenge to house in a makeup bag. The brand did a similar palette last year and I wish they would have just split it up to a row of eight shadows each. Oh well, maybe next year…
Sephora Collection #LashStories False Lash Set
It’s not the holidays without some glam lashes!
Gift four of your friends (or just one.. or yourself :P) the Sephora Collection #LashStories False Lash Set (C$37), which contains four different sets of lashes.
Although this set comes in one box, there are actually four smaller boxes inside which have the brand’s four bestselling, cruelty-free synthetic lashes. Each lash targets a different look; there’s Sahara for drama, Foodie for natural volume, Cheers for full volume, and Brunch Babe for natural volume.
Sephora Collection Glitter Mascara Top Coat
For an extra-dazzling look, pick up the Sephora Collection Glitter Mascara Top Coat (C$13.50).
Available in both gold and silver, this mascara adds some sparkle and shine to the eyelashes. The brush on this mascara is very dense, allowing you to really brush on the glitter effect. Truthfully, it’s not the most noticeable thing (I’m actually wearing it in the swatches of the Winter Time palette), but it does add a subtle sparkle to the lashes. You can wear it on its own, but I recommend layering it over top of your mascara.
Sephora Collection Hair Silver Glitter Gel
To match your lashes, try the Sephora Collection Hair Silver Glitter Gel (C$11).
Also available in a gold shade, this gel can be applied to your hair, face, or body for a glittery silver look. It’s suitable for just about any hair texture and type and is very lightweight when applied.
If you have a friend that is planning on attending a music festival next year, then this is a definite must!
Sephora Collection Glitter Wonderland
Spread a little sparkle wherever you go!
The Sephora Collection Glitter Wonderland set (on sale for C$9, regular C$19) contains four loose glitters in different colours.
Included in this set is Twinkle (gold), Tinsel (Silver), Poinsettia (Fuchsia), and Snowflake (iridescent). All four of these are micro glitters, allowing you to place them wherever to give you a mega-holiday look. You will need something underneath them to adhere to, but if you’re looking to sparkle this season, definitely pick up this set.
No matter who is on your list this season, you can pretty much find anything and everything for just about anyone from Sephora Collection. The brand also has a ton of other items to choose from, and best of all, they are all so affordable.
