We're Beauty Editors—Here's Our Sephora Holiday Wish List

If you're shopping for beauty gifts for the holidays, there's no better person to take advice from than a beauty editor. At some point, just about every new launch crosses our desks—so we know exactly what's worth it and what isn't. That makes holiday shopping pretty streamlined. 

This year, I asked the WWW beauty team if they would be willing to share their Sephora holiday wish list, and they did exactly that. Their picks range from bodycare to fragrance to makeup and everything in between. Keep reading for all of the highly coveted products from Sephora that are so good our editors are dropping hints for them ourselves.

Without fail, one of my favorite holiday gifts is always hand cream. When the weather starts getting colder, hand cream becomes an essential in my arsenal for soothing cracked knuckles. This one is as chic as it is effective—it's jam-packed with ceramides, peptides, and niacinamide.  

Tom Ford's newest scent would be a welcome addition to any wish list, IMO. It's a sultry and myrrh-forward and strikes the perfect balance with vanilla and sandalwood for the ideal gender-neutral scent. 

I wear red lipstick everywhere, no matter the occasion. This long-wearing red from Armani has the perfect satiny finish and doesn't dry out lips. 

My Dyson Airwrap is the beauty product that gets the most use. It makes me look like I got a professional blowout in a matter of 20 minutes. I am obsessed with the idea of this fun, limited-edition colorway as a luxe holiday gift. 

I've already gone through an entire tube of this lip balm, and I need another one stat. It's my favorite lip balm—it's ultra hydrating, smells incredible, and is lightly tinted.

I constantly see this on my FYP and was influenced to add it to my wish list. I love seeing how it can create sleek, slicked-back styles with ease. Since I'm making it a goal to do my hair more often (even when I work from home), this seems like the perfect product for me. 

I didn't get this palette the first time it was released, and I've always regretted it. I love the mix of soft neutral shades and the variety of finishes. Now that it's back, I'm set on snagging one.

I've heard so many people rave about this setting powder, and apparently, it looks amazing when it's photographed on the skin. It promises to mattify, blur, and illuminate all in one go. I'm sold. 

I love vitamin C bodycare products, so I've been dying to try this bodywash (and the matching lotion). Aside from the vitamin C, it also contains niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to brighten and hydrate dull skin. 

I'm obsessed with Phlur fragrances, so I'm looking forward to trying the brand's latest launch—this hair-and-body mist. With warm and spicy notes of sugar crystals, cashmere wood, and vanilla, it sounds like a winter dream.

This perfume isn't new by any means, but it is my new obsession! It's so warm, sweet, and floral without being overpowering. I snagged a small bottle the last time I was at Sephora, but now I think I need to buy the largest size they have!

I have a confession to make: I don't normally love bodywashes that have heavy butters in them, but this new 54 Thrones formula is SO magical. It's creamy and soft but still has a great lather to it so you don't feel like you're just dousing your skin in oil. I also love pairing it with my 54 Thrones Cloud Body Cream—the perfect pairing.

Okay, I normally wouldn't splurge this hard on a foundation, but this one is totally worth it. It is a soft, matte formula, but it goes on so creamy and never dries my skin out. 

Sephora Collection lipsticks are it! I received my first one in this gorgeous red shade, and after that, I was hooked! They really stay put and offer such vibrant color on the lips.

I am deeply obsessed with this lip oil from Gisou, and it's the one I always recommend when people ask for a lip oil recommendation. (I call it the Goldilocks of lip oils because it's not too sticky, not too slippery, and is deeply hydrating.) I managed to lose, crack open (long story), and use up all three of my tubes in the past couple of weeks, so I'm frantic to re-stock. While I'm at it, I desperately want this new shimmery iteration which just feels so right for the time of year. 

I recently went from platinum to copper hair, and I totally underestimated the extent to which I would have to overhaul my entire beauty routine, brows included! I don't want my brows to look too red, as it looks a bit unnatural, so when my brow artist in LA, Alixandria Capparelli recommended I try the Caramel hues from Anastasia Beverly Hills for the most flattering, red-to-blonde ratio, I immediately clicked "Add to Basket."

I usually resist the urge to try the majority of complexion launches simply because my tiny LA apartment only has so much real-estate for beauty products. And, because I've been deeply happy with my go-to base products from Kosas. That said, I've heard so many rave reviews about this skincare-infused serum foundation from Danessa Myricks, it's officially sent me over the edge and convinced me to add it to my Sephora cart.

I'm unhinged when it comes to my lashes, and by that I mean that I want them to be as long and as fluttery as humanly possible. I was using this until I ran out a couple of months ago (my lashes had never looked better, BTW) and I assumed switching back to my Latisse prescription wouldn't make much difference. Not only do I get less eye irritation and redness with this formula from Grande Cosmetics, but I swear my lashes actually looked longer and all-around better when I was using it as compared to Latisse. Go figure! Obviously, it's officially back in my Sephora cart again.
