SEPHORA ENCHANTED HOLIDAY 2007 COLLECTION

What to give? Sephora’s 2007 Blockbuster Palette contains 64 eyeshadows, 23 lip glosses, 9 lip shines, 6 blushes, and 2 compact powders. One of last year’s most desired holiday palettes was Sephora’s Blockbuster Palette. It appears that this year is no exception!

For who? This gift is perfect for every girl in your life that should be a beauty addict, is slowly on their way to full-blown addict status, or steals from your stash everything your back is turned.  Give the gift of a whole lot of loot with this jam-packed holiday palette. It’s guaranteed to keep one busy for many, many weeks playing with various eyeshadow combinations, textures, and products found within it.

Why and how much? The Blockbuster palette is nothing like the cheap kits you might find at various locations like a discount store – these are high-end, quality makeup products. You also get an amazing mixture of colors from neutrals to blues to greens to purples. The packaging is sleek, and the palette itself is a touch hefty (but hey, this sort of makes you feel like you’re really getting a boatload of products!), and it’s just such an optimal palette for all sorts of beauty addicts who are need of a traveling solution that still offers them a wide variety of choices to those with only the hint of interest on beauty. And really, it’s not easy to pass this one by, because it’s only $48.00. It’s a steal!
