Sephora Holiday Catalog 2007

It’s official. The Sephora Holiday Catalog 2007 is Live and Ready for your viewing pleasure on Sephora.com!

I collect the Holiday catalogs from year to year and I’m happy to say that the cover model is gorgeous this year! I’m liking the “fairy tale”, “enchanted” theme! Last year’s Carnival didn’t thrill me so I’m quite happy to say that this year’s cover is fabulous and the entire theme sounds great!

Sephora Holiday Catalog 2007

Inside is just as good with bold, vibrant eye looks in a wonderful array of ultra awesome color!

A few items that caught my eye:

Urban Decay Flavored Body Powders….wow how retro! I loved these when they first came out but I think they may past their sell by date! Don’t get me wrong I adore these and use them in looks all the time but the general idea of repromoting them in the Sephora Holiday Catalog makes me scratch my head slightly!

Check out page 18-19

Flipping through I’m seeing a trend of repromoting older items such as Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow on pages 2-3…hmm how boring.

Sephora’s new bath line mmm…..you’d think by now that they’d have gotten this right! Aren’t these the same exact bottles we had ages ago? Again another vintage tale of woe! I remember these going for like 99% off after the Holiday one year! Oh Sephora please just stop with the Bath items!

Check out page 24-25

The White Croc Pop Up Brush Set at $45 looks quite interesting as does the Sephora Prestige Brush Set at $150 (Looks like quite a haul of brushes for the price).

Check out page 36-37

I see a Sephora Holiday palette in purple on page 14-15 this could make the wish list! Hmmm….

Sephora’s Color Eye Palette $26 (Purple Compact)

The Muse thinks they did a great job with the catalog. The looks are gorgeous, the theme sounds fantastic, and the layout looks very nice! However, the products and gifts inside fail to wow me which is good and bad. Good as it saves me money for more Japanese Holiday Collections. Bad because it’s been so very long since a Sephora Catalog has had me jumping around in circles! Keep in mind some of the items in the catalog are not yet live on the website so if you’re planning on ordering wait for at least 24-48 hours while they update! I’ve noticed a few items such as the Prestige Brush Collection and the Sephora Holiday Palette are not yet available for purchase!

Oh well! Money saved!

What do you think?
Want any of this?
Love it?
Hate it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

  • the Muse

    Hello Mary!
    Thanks for the comment 🙂

    Glad you’re loving my blog 😉

    I can’t wait either! It does take quite a while until they mail it out! I totally understand 😛

  • Heather Mary

    haven’t received mine YET, I’m waiting! Last years was such a disappointment 🙁 LOVING the cover this year, cant wait to get it. When I do, I will come back and repost 😀

  • Taryn

    My catalog didn’t come today and I was so hoping it would! The looks are beautiful (from what I can tell), but the products are just “eh”. You are so right about the Sephora bath line! Remember last year’s “indulgences” or something like that? They were these horrible-smelling rip offs of Philosophy. Sure, they sounded delicious, like Chocolate Raspberry and Bananas Foster, but my Cherriflip stuff smelled better than that!

    I still can’t wait for the F&F to start. I’m thinking about splurging on that ghd rounded-plate flat iron!

    Hi Heather!

    Me either! Hopeful soon 🙂 Gosh yes! Cover art was nice last year but it was a snore 🙁

    Let me know when you get it 😉

    Hey Taryn 😉

    Hopeful for mine 🙂 I wanna try and recreate some of the looks 😉 Products are a snore sadly 🙁

    God the indulgences were awful 🙁 This new line is the same that they had ages ago! Just new scents. LOL I remember the Chocolate Raspberry and Banana Foster as it was a stocking stuffer set that I got from someone and was yuck!

    I’m eager for it too as I want the Lorac star shadows those look nice 😉

    That flat iron is awesome! I imagine it could even tame my wicked curls 😉

    I loved reading your Sephora blog!
    I agree with you that the overall theme is much more beautiful and enchanting than last yrs circus looks LOL…
    I have been looking around (without much luck) for a holiday deluxe sample code…I know in years past sephora has provided codes for 10 or even 12 piece deluxe sample bags around the holiday season–I wonder if they are continuing that tradition this year???

  • the Muse

    hello Anonymous!

    Thanks so much!

    I must say the theme is very fitting! The entire circus thing confused me lol! Didn’t feel very holiday’ish!

    Nothing yet in the way of a deluxe code but don’t forget that this weekend (We think) the 20% discount for Friends and Family applies 🙂 I will post details as soon as I have them so you can save BIG on your order 🙂

    I’m positive that at the end of Nov beginning of Dec they will do another deluxe sample. Normally they have the code in with the 2nd catalog. the fragrance catalog that they send AFTER the holiday catalog 😉

    If I hear anything you’ll be the first to know love!

    Hugs thanks for the comment!
