Sephora is a beauty-retail concept founded in France by Dominique Mandonnaud in 1970. They have a broad range of product categories including skincare, color, fragrance, body, smile care, and hair care, in addition to Sephora’s own private label. was launched in the US in 1999 and Canada in 2003.

Today Sephora operates approximately 1,900 stores in 29 countries worldwide, with an expanding base of over 360 stores across North America. Sephora opened its first U.S. store in New York in 1998 and its first Canadian store in Toronto in 2004. JCPenney began opening Sephora inside JCPenney stores in October 2006 and today there are Sephora locations in JCPenney stores nationwide.

I recently received two items for my Holiday Gift Guide and I was really excited to check these items out.

I received the Sephora Collect Easy on the Eyes Palette and a Sephora Collection Dark Rainbow Compact Mirror.


The Easy on the Eyes palette is STUNNING! it features 30 matte and metallic shades that are grouped by tone and depth which makes it easy to find just the color you are looking for. The palette is broken up into large and small pans, the large pans hold base color while the small pans hold color.

One thing I really love about this pallet is that it features two make up tutorials, I tend to use the “When The Clock Strikes Twelve” tutorial as I love the look.

You can purchase the Easy on the Eyes Palette for $25 and it’s a $145 value!

The Sephora Collection Dark Rainbow Compact Mirror is no longer available on their website but I absolutely love the size and Its perfect for stashing in my purse.

I am very impressed with both items and the Easy on the Eyes Palette has easily become my favorite Palette out of the ones I own.
