It is that wonderful time of the year again people! The season when temperatures drop,  halls are decked with beautiful decorations, and boutiques go on pre-Christmas sale! So seize that chance and pay the boutiques a visit (or two, or… ten!) to get first dibs on their best offers.

A little bird told me Sephora Qatar has some beautiful surprises in store starting the 1st of December, with the launch of a variety of Christmas specials. I paid them a visit in the Landmark branch and came up with these recommendations:

Sephora The Beauty Advent Calendar is the highlight of it all, and to all of you who count the days until the holidays, which rhyme perfectly with rest-and-no-work-days, you can enjoy your bite-sized surprise every single day of the month!


These two Sephora shadow palettes, The Delicate and The Graceful, both fit perfectly into a working lady’s tote for a retouch in between meetings.


Another beautiful gift is My Beauty Notebooks, a set of three palettes catering to the eyes, lips and cheeks and stealthily designed to resemble a real notepad! A witty touch for when you secretly want to consult your mirror while pretending to check your schedule! Lol.


For the traveling women, small travel size items in one set that includes earthy colored shadows, a mascara, an eye liner pencil, an eye make up remover and an eye mask. Your complete arsenal for a well-rested and well-prepped look to start off your business trip on the right foot!


And a wonderful set of four palettes in one package, The Surprising, all in the sizes of small notepads, for the the skin (Contour and Highlight), cheeks (Blush and Luminizer), and eyes (Smoky and Chic).
