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!”

These are such beautiful gift options @faeriegirl! I have been debating whether to pick up the CT powder with the LE Luna New Year packaging for myself. 🤔 I think we know how that will end up. 😂

Week 8

International traveler who’s always on the next flight

This would be nice to have on hand for travel, and I love belif products

belif On-the-glow hydration travel kit 

 

 

Sister-in-law always on the go:

Tower 28 BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush seems like it would work well for this category. I always like to have a multi-use product like this in my bag.

Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Office Hours 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 8 - Share your gift ideas for the travelers in your life!

Multi-use products are fantastic to have on hand @PrettyPaint! 😍 I love the versatility they offer, though I'm sure I don't need to have soooo many in my handbag at one time. Hahaha! 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 8 - Share your gift ideas for the travelers in your life!

@PrettyPaint Great choices! I have the Tower 28 Blush in the shade Magic Hour and love using it on my cheeks for a natural flush ☺️

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 8 - Share your gift ideas for the travelers in your life!

Great choice with the Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Office Hours the formula is just amazing! 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 8 - Share your gift ideas for the travelers in your life!

Week 8 - Travel Ready 

 

For the ultimate gift for the traveller, I’d totally get the Slip Frequent Flyer Travel Set ! It includes a silk sleep mask, silk face covering and a pillow case all in a cute tote! I’d definitely grab a SEPHORA COLLECTION Lip Sleeping Mask to throw in there, too! 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 8 - Share your gift ideas for the travelers in your life!

@bakeamuffin, I'm going to have to hunt down that Slip set - what a fantastic idea! 💝 I don't think we carried it here in the States, or if we did, I missed it entirely. Will take a look at the brand site. 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 8 - Share your gift ideas for the travelers in your life!

Oh that’s the worst, seeing products on other countries site that you can’t access 😓 I hope you can find it elsewhere @itsfi
