A Sweet Little Stocking Stuffer From Sephora


With its beautiful red festive packaging, the Sephora Collection Mini Cream Lip Stain Set would make a great stocking stuffer for any beauty junkie!


I actually purchase the combo pack as a treat for myself simply because I couldn't decide which colour to purchase next. I have one full-size Sephora Lip Cream already in the shade Pink Souffle and I absolutely love it! The moussey texture is pigmented and applies nice and smooth. It's long-wearing without ever feeling dry and I adore the soft blush hue. At $18 dollars each, these lippies are also a decent price for high-end quality!


The holiday set ($15) comes with four petite shades including Blackberry Sorbet (a deep burgondy colour), Infinite Rose (a shimmery, peachy-pink hue), Cherry Blossom (a vibrant Barbie pink) and Always Red (the perfect Christmas-y, matte red). I didn't think I would like Infinite Rose when initially looking at it, but once applied to my lips it surprised me! It's described as a satin finish, so the golden shimmers are not too chunky and it somewhat mimics the look of metallic lips, which seem to be growing in popularity. My favourite of the bunch, however, is Blackberry Sorbet which begs to be worn with a chunky knit sweater and messy bun this winter.

While they are pretty tiny with just 1.3 mL worth of product (compared to the 5 mL in a full-size) it's a great way to test the formula in a variety of colours and determine which one to purchase. It would also put a smile on any lipstick lover's face Christmas morning.

I know it's a bit early, but...Merry Ho Ho and happy shopping!
