Gift Ideas from Sephora

I saw some items on sephora.com. which I think will make nice gifts for kikay friends. All of the items in this post is below Php500 (I used a conversion rate of $1=Php48), most are below Php250 if you divide the total price by the number of items in each set.   Pretty affordable if you ask me, and the best part, your girl friends' feeling of being special, priceless.

Korres Vitamin E 10-color Pencil Kit

This set has a $160 value but retails at a more affordable (or should I say bargain) price of $32.50 (approx. Php 1560).

Sephora Favorites Best in Bronze Deluxe Sampler Set
I think this set, which has a value of $113 but retails for only $39 (approx. Php1872), is really sulit because it contains 10 of Sephora's most loved bronzers and luminizers.  Check this out:
  • Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals All Over Face Color in Faux Tan
  • Josie Maran Bronzing Argan Oil
  • Lorac Tantalizer Baked Bronzer in Golden Bronze
  • Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzing Powder
  • Sephora Collection Nail Polish in Bright Red
  • Benefit High Beam
  • Temptu Retouch Highlighter in Gold
  • Smashbox Artificial Light Illuminating Lotion in Glow
  • Tarte EmphaseyesWaterproof Clay Shadow Liner in Bronze 
  • Korres Monoi Oil Bronzing Powder in Sunglow Light 


Sephora Favorites Eau Girl Scent Sampler 

Sephora gathered 8 of their eau de parfum bestsellers valued at $80 and retails for $40 (approx. Php1920).  The deluxe sample size fragrances in this kit includes:
  • Michael Kors Very Hollywood Eau de Parfum
  • Clean Eau de Parfum
  • Calvin Klein euphoria Eau de Parfum
  • Givenchy Very Irresistible Eau de Toilette
  • Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau de Parfum
  • Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette
  • Gucci Flora Eau de Parfum 
  • Tocca Cleopatra Eau de Parfum 

A Eau Boy Scent Sampler is also available. 


Rosebud Perfume Co. Three Lavish Layers of Lip Balm

Let me just say, a lip balm is a dry chappy lip's best friend.  This cult classic brand retails for $16 (approx. Php768).  The set includes:
  • Strawberry Lip Balm
  • Rosebud Salve
  • Minted Rose Lip Balm

Stila Lip Glaze Twinkle Set ($55 Value) $20 (approx. Php960)


Ideal for your girl friends who are into lip glosses.  I have one of these in Grapefruit, while I'm not a lipgloss person, I appreciate the fact that the lip glaze is not that sticky, as other lip glosses tend to be and it has this nice fruity taste.  I'm just confused about the pricing of this set, individually it retails for $22 but as set it only costs $20 (approx. Php960) and a set contains 4 pieces so this is pretty good deal.  The variants are:

  • Grapefruit
  • Mauvelous
  • Pinkle Twinkle
  • Cherry Pie


Stila Collectible Travel Palette Road to Radiance Across the USA and Pretty In Paris 

Across the USA
Pretty in Paris

I love palettes so if there's a gift that I would like receive it would definitely be this one, friends, hint...hint. This palette contains 4 eye shadows and a convertible color, a product that can be used both on the cheeks and the lips.  Originally priced at $65 but it now retails at $10 each (approx. Php480).  That's practically a steal!

You may think that it's a bit too early to think about the holidays, but with the "ber months" just around the corner, the sooner you start on that list, the better.
