What to Purchase During Sephora Friends and Family 2011: Lipglosses are People Too!

lipgloss set

So you like lipgloss but you don’t like having to pay $20 or more for a single gloss from your favorite brands?

That’s why the Holidays are a great time to indulge as brands package up glosses in an array of various sets that house smaller, minis sizes (or if you’re lucky larger, full sizes) for half the price. Mini isn’t always better in my personal opinion as I tend to run through them fairly quickly but you are getting variety here and that’s always important. Plus unlike powder products I find that Lipgloss Sets tend to stay true to their formula, ie, the formula isn’t cheapened or reformulated to fit the smaller price tag.

Here’s a few of my recommendations and picks to add to your Sephora Friends and Family order because 20% off plus the already low price tag of the set really makes things all the sweeter!

Sephora Palettes

With Sephora Friends and Family 2011 in full force here are some helpful hints on which palettes are worth the haul.

Love them or hate them you can’t deny that palettes are where you get the most bang for your buck. You can spend $25 on a single blush or you can indulge in a palette that will range from $39-$55 that includes several blushes, several eyeshadows, and possibly more.

Of course, palettes suffer downfalls sometimes and quality isn’t always up to par with the standard line of cosmetics offered by your favorite brands plus let’s not forget contending with creams and powders in one cramped place. But if you can get passed the drama of palettes you’re in for a treat because darling they do so offer the very best bang for your buck.

Here are some suggestions and recommendations for the best palettes to snatch up during Sephora Friends and Family 2011 since 20% off sweetens the deal even further doesn’t it?

Korres Lip Sets for Holiday 2011

Korres Holiday 2011
Korres hasn’t gotten any real love from me in a bit, apologies! Just nothing has popped up that caught my fancy…!

But I do have three new lip sets for Holiday 2011 that I’d like to share with you today.

If you’re a Korres fan you might enjoy these or if you’re new to the brand might I suggest checking these out to initiate you into the world of Korres.
