I would need to be an octopus to count on my hands the number of holiday-centric Sephora sale stories I've written up since becoming a beauty editor. That said, they really don't lose their thrill. And if you thought all of the best internet beauty deals and steals were ghosts of this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday past, you'd be quite wrong.
Of course, to get in on the holiday shopping magic, you have to be a Beauty Insider (join for free here if you're not already!), and the savings are as follows: Rouge members get $25 off $75+, VIB members get $20 off $75+, and Beauty Insider members get $15 off any $75+. Then, you just have to use code 2020SAVE online or in-store to reap your deals.
It's physically impossible for me to resist shopping for all of my favorites, so 21 of the coolest things I'd snap up right this second await your perusal just below. Happy shopping—keep scrolling!
Dreams came true when Stila decided to enhance its cult-loved waterproof liquid liner by attaching a finer micro-tip version on the other end. Brilliant beyond brilliant.
I actually just received this adorable ornament, and I've already added five more to my cart for all of my family and friends. (The leopard theme is just too cute to pass up!)
My fellow beauty editor Courtney Higgs and I agree—this new debut from Tom Ford is not only the all-time best from the brand but is also one of the all-time best fragrances, period. It's intoxicatingly juicy thanks to the unique mix of peach, davana, and patchouli.
If you're looking for a new woody scent that's especially sparkly for winter, I highly recommend this new fragrance from clean-perfume brand Ellis Brooklyn. Starring notes include vetiver, ambergris, and cedarwood for a sophisticated yet cozy finish.
This is one perfume I don't yet own but that is sitting at the very top of my wish list. How delicious does the warm and spicy blend of rosebud, pink pepper, cherry, saffron, tonka bean, and cedarwood sound? Whenever I'm buying a new fragrance on the internet, I always opt for a travel-size vial on the off chance I'm not a fan. (Strategy, people, strategy.)
Can you tell I'm candle obsessed? I just spotted this naughty cookie-inspired soy candle from Heretic, and since it's limited edition, I absolutely need to have the yummy mix of black pepper, vanilla, ginger, leathery tonka bean, nutmeg, and warm cloves ASAP.
Tools & Gadgets
If you or anyone you know is in the market for a new curling iron, I recommend this new high-tech option over all others. Case in point: It utilizes cutting-edge T3 Curl ID to deliver first-of-its-kind styling customization with a smart-touch interface and nine heat settings that automatically adapt to your unique hair needs. (This flat iron shares the same cool technology if you're not a curl person.)
Bath & Body
The facial versions of these brand-new exfoliating wipes from Dr. Dennis Gross are some of the most-wanted products in the realm of skincare. So I've been chomping at the bit to wipe down my body and limbs for super-soft and radiant skin from head to toe this season. (It contains all the goods like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and lactic acid.)
I love killing as many birds with one stone as I can post-shower, and trust me when I say there isn't a more convenient way to tackle all of your ills in one go than this handy roller from Milk Makeup. The lush mix of jojoba oil, olive oil, and vitamin E keeps dry skin topped up with moisture while the soothing blend of broad-spectrum CBD, arnica flower extract, and hemp-derived cannabis-seed extract go to work on tightness and inflammation.
