Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 9 - Share how you're treating yourself!

Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022

 

It’s officially holiday season here at Sephora, and we’re celebrating with all of our Community friends the best way we know how – by sharing beauty recommendations, of course! 🎁 The Beauty Insider Community always seems to have the best beauty buy, trick, or tip for just about any occasion, and now we’re truly putting you all to the test with a Holiday Gifting Challenge!

 

Here’s how it works: we polled our Community Ambassadors and had them come up with different hard-to-shop-for people (some of them real, some hypothetical… all very relatable) and turned them into weekly prompts to challenge our Community to brainstorm the perfect gift ideas for each. Each prompt will include two different people or gifts that fit under that overall category -- you can reply with different ideas for both recipients within that prompt, or share ideas for just one of them, or however you feel inspired to participate in this ultimate present-picking challenge. In your replies, be sure to tag those products using the “#” sign -- and don’t forget to come back each week to share your recommendations for the next batch of “giftees!”

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@SportyGirly125, the Sephora Favorites sets are great for a makeup newbie as well as those who have been wearing makeup for decades - such a great way to try out some fab products.

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@SportyGirly125 the lip set is my favourite every year! i always pick up one for myself and one as a gift 🙂 great suggestions!

@cianni Thank you 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

The holidays always have so many great sets for teens building a collection! CLINIQUE Must-Have Makeup Set fresh Sugar Collection Lip Care Set Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Wardrobe Set Pillow Talk 

 

Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Essentials 4-Piece Acne Kit or Jack Black Acne Remedy Balancing Foam Cleanser 5 oz/ 148 mL seem like they’d be good options for a teen boy! Jackblack makes some really good products though I haven’t tried this one in particular 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@Kim888 the Fresh and CT lippie sets are excellent choices - for a newbie or a makeup expert!

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@Kim888 Great set choices, and your right! During the holidays sets are in abundance, it's a great time to find starter gifts 🎁 😀

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

For the teen who is just getting into makeup and building a collection I would definitely pick up something a little more luxe for them. Depending what they prefer I would get Dior Dior Addict Lip Glow  or the Dior Lip Glow Oil  if they are more into eyeshadows I would grab Natasha Denona Mini Biba Eyeshadow Palette  or PAT McGRATH LABS Mini Smokey Eye Duo  I always like a little more of a luxe gift when I was a teen. It made me feel special. My mom got me a Chanel eye quad and I loved it. 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

Ahhhh, I love that your mom gifted you a Chanel eye quad @ather💖 Love your recs - they're so luxe and would make a special gift!

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@itsfi  My mom is the best! She always would get me a luxe item every Christmas and I cherished it. I felt so grown up!! 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

Oooh that's sooo true.  It would be a very special and memorable moment and item a tween/teen would cherish 😍 Really great idea @ather

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@CynthieLu  Thanks!! I like to be the auntie who spoils her niece and nephews!! 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

I love that @ather Auntie is a very special person to be 💕

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@ather this is so special!! when i was waaaay younger, my mom gifted me a Dior lipstick that was probably a purchase w purchase or GWP on something she already bought. I used it and felt sooo grownup. i still have it, although i dont wear it because it is waaaaaay past the point of no return right now. but it was the first real luxury piece i owned!

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 6 - Share your gift ideas for beauty newbies!

@cianni  Awww that’s such a sweet memory!! I love that you still have it too!! I still have my Chanel eye palette too. I don’t use it tho!
