Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

Being a momma of 4 that doesn’t really get to treat herself because no matter what my kids come first even when I want to get myself something I’m always saying well maybe the kids need something instead so I put it back lol, if there was ANYTHING I could get from Sephora as a mother’s day gift and I could afford it, I would most definitely say one of the Drunk Elephant sets with the night serum in it 🥰 that is my DREAM product lol so hopefully one day💕 HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL MOMMAS 🌸🌺🌸🌺🌸🌺

RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

My mom is a perfume addict so I bought her Dior hypnotic poison and also YSL Black Opium intense 🥰

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

I was first introduced to beauty by my mother at a young age. Growing up, she was obsessed with Clinique products and has used their 3 Step Skincare System for years. She's also used the same Clinique foundation for decades, so she'll be happy with anything Clinique. She's still in love with the brand, so I'm currently eyeing the CLINIQUE Spring Into Colour: Eye and Lip Makeup Set

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

I've been thinking a lot about what I should get my mom for Mother's Day. I do not want to do a repeat gift and give her something totally new! I came across StackedSkincare EGF Activating Serumits great for dark spots, aging, and wrinkles! My mother is outside a lot, and is always worried about her face! I think she and all moms will love it!

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

My grandmother is not particularly interested in cosmetics, but she does like to have a few amazing products that she can use regularly! So my goal, when shopping for her, is to find products that are easy to use, and beautiful.

 

She loves a bright lipstick, and Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick The Queenwould be perfect for her since it's such a flattering bold fuschia. I also appreciate that when Charlotte released this lipstick, she included an older model as part of the promotional material!

 

A previous gift that was a huge hit for her was the Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid base. She loves how easy it is to use and how it just brightens up her complexion!

 

Finally, an easy-to-use sunscreen. Especially one that's good for on the go! I've given her the Paula's Choice SPF powder before, but I think she'd also really enjoy the Supergoop powder. Also, the Clarins Sunscreen Care Oil Spray is great since you can use it on your hair/scalp as well. 

 

 

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

I'm still not sure yet as to what I'll get my mother, but here are some ideas:

 

For the mother who has it all:

URBAN DECAY - Mother Of Dragons Highlighter Palette - Game Of Thrones Collection

(She may not be the mother of dragons, but she might as well have been.) 

tarte SEA High Tides & Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

(This palette screams summer and I love the mix of neutrals, brights colours, mattes and glitters. This palette has it all.)

Natasha Denona Lila Eyeshadow Palette

(You can't go wrong with a palette from ND. Beware, once you gift your mom a ND palette, she'll want them all 😂)

 

Non-makeup products:

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Original

(My mother already got this last year as a gift and loved it. It now comes in 4 flavours too!)

Briogeo Sea Goddess Hair + Body Shimmer Mist

(My mom is OBSESSED with glitter. This mist seems perfect to add a bit of sparkle to any look.)

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist

(Not gonna lie, I also want this for myself. Who wouldn't want a hydrating mist that smells like watermelon for the summer though?) 

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

I LOVE that lip sleeping mask. Have only used it for 4 days and it has healed my preteen daughter's cracked and dry lips..

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

I plan to buy my mother the foreo ufo device. It´s a smat mask treatment for professional and relaxing skin mask treatments that you can do yourself in 90 seconds at home. It is amazing and I am sure she will love it. FOREO UFO™ Fuchsia

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

yes, that's actually a great idea, it's an expensive gift but moms are worth it! I have seen some foreo coupons on retailme.not and somewhere else....I wonder if Sephora takes those...

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

Foreo Luna 2-Hands Down! I got the mini one, got the bigger sister for my mom's birthday. She was so so  happy!

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

Yes, I am planning to buy Foreo Luna as well...Still deciding on which size...

RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

Hello everyone 🙂 what eyeshadow palette would y’all recommend for moms over 50? My mom buys random makeup and I’d like to get her a great everyday palette 💕

Re: RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

I have another recommendation @jeannellev Viseart Eyeshadow Palette 01 Neutral Matte

I have been shopping my stash and this palette is so easy to work with. It almost blends itself. I realize that it is pricey but I feel that your mom would really like it. 

Re: RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

Hi @jeannellev 😊 I’m 53 and have a fair number of pallets, 2 Marc Jacobs, Anastasia Norvina and Sultry, assorted other Too Faced, etc. but the ones I use most for every day are all MATTE. 😊  At our age, we have to be careful with sparkle as it settles into wrinkles. I do wear it, but carefully and it’s not my every day go to. My top two very favorite all matte pallets are these (Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte and Kat Von D Lolita). Good luck!

Re: RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

these look great! I was also thinking something neutral 🙂 

RE: Re: RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

Thank you soo much 💕

Re: RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

@jeannellev what's your budget? I'm obsessed with anything Huda, Natasha Denona, or Pat McGrath, 

RE: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

What kinds of looks does she like? Natural/neutral day looks with just a bit more drama for an evening out? Color? Matte vs. shimmer? Warner tones vs. cooler tones? Any colors she tends to love or hate wearing on her eyes? I have a bunch of ideas (I’m in my late 40s fwiw), but it would help to know a bit more about how your mom likes her makeup to look.

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

My mom has always been against makeup so I am tailoring my responses to suit the anti-makeup mother 🙂

 

  • What are your top 3 products from Sephora for the mom who is beauty obsessed with beauty but seems to have it all already?

1. Sephora Gift Card. You can never go wrong with a gift card! I personally LOVE getting gift cards because it means I can pick up what I know I will use.

2. Brow products. My mom doesn't wear makeup unless I do it for her for special occasions but one thing she does appreciate is good brows. This Mother's Day I am going to replenish her brow stash and get her some more Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer Shade 3.75Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Waterproof Easy Shape & Fill Eyebrow Pencil 3.75Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel 4

3. BeautyBlender. It's always good to have backups if your mom already owns a BeautyBlender. During those special occasions where I do my mom's makeup, I have to bring an extra BB to do hers so I might as well get one for her to keep. The best part of the BB is that you can use it for skincare if you don't wear foundation!

  • What are your top 3 non-makeup products from Sephora for a mom is not so into makeup? (Ex. hair, fragrance, supplements)

1. Skincare. Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating Moisturizer 1.7 oz/ 50 mLFor my mother with dry skin who appreciates a good face moisturizer.

2. Fragrance. Jo Malone London Star Magnolia Hair Mist

I picked this up for her when it first launched a few years back and getting her a backup wouldn't hurt. The scent is very lovely and I find you can use it as both a fragrance mist and a hair mist.

3. Supplements. HUM Nutrition Glow Sweet Glow Skin Hydration - Vegan Gummies 60 Tangerine Vegan GummiesThese have been my secret for glowing skin since this product came out and why not share my glow with my mom? 😉

  • Maybe YOU are the one being celebrated! How would you treat yourself if you could get anything... we mean ANYTHING from Sephora?

If I had to choose a single product for myself, I would go with the dyson Airwrap™ Styler Complete styler – for multiple hair types and stylesas it's been in my wish list since it came out.

Re: Opinions Wanted: Best Mother's Day Gifts

The GLOW SWEET GLOW gummies are such an amazing gift for Mom! xo and enjoy!
