For the beauty lover who has everything, there’s no better gift than a fabulous makeup bag exclusively from Sephora – especially if it can double as a clutch. Here’s a list of my top three makeup bags.
1. Sparkle meets wit
The name of one of Sephora Collection’s best beauty clutch doesn’t mince words. It’s called the “Leave a little sparkle wherever you go” clutch. And just in case you forget what’s it’s called, the name is emblazoned on the side of the clutch! In addition to the graphic words, there is also a fun print of cosmetics – a hot pink lipstick, makeup brush and what I imagine would be the red nail polish – the colour of the holiday season. I also love how the design is the product of a collaboration between forward-thinking Sephora and makeup artist and educator Angelique Velez, whose work at Breakups to makeup inspires me.
2. Minimal meets gold
This clutch is what I call the ultimate budget luxury. There’s something so fabulous about getting a monogrammed gift. And the fact that the Sephora Collection The Jetsetter: Personalized Pouch has an oversized gold monogram of every letter in the alphabet printed on it makes it the perfect gift. And it’s only 25.00 – which gives you some budget to fill it with the perfect holiday lipstick, such as Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge or MAC Nutcracker Sweet in Flamboyant.
3. Pretty meets bling
This may not double as a clutch but I had to include the sparkle and shine weekender in my list of top three makeup bags. I am already dreaming about the beauty items I would cram into this oversize zippered travel bag. I’m thinking Rodial Snake Eye Cream, the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics eye shadow Palette and the Bobbi Brown Party to Go Lips and Eyes…. Ok, those are on my Christmas list (hint hint…) Back to the awesome bag. I love the offset chevron graphic pattern in a soft glimmering palette on the bag. The inside helps keep travelers organized with labeled pockets and a useful divider.
