Happy Mother’s Day From Sephora



There’s no better time than Mother’s Day to spoil Mom with beauty gifts she’ll love, and Sephora has got anything and everything your mom could possibly wish for.  From hair care to skincare to cosmetics and fragrances, Sephora is an easy one stop shop for a Mother’s Day gift that will top all others.


A basket full of beauty goodies that every woman would love…what more could mom ask for this Mother’s Day?  Check out just a small selection of some of the goodies that Sephora has to offer:


Every woman needs a great set of makeup brushes, and Sephora has quite a few to offer.  The pink, Two Ways About It Brush Set  is a six-piece double-ended eye and face brush set with champagne gold molten metal textured handles stored in a vegan leather brush roll. Included in the set you will find:

  • Double-ended buffing and blush brush
  • Double-ended flat and pointed foundation brush
  • Double-ended all-over shadow and crease brush
  • Double-ended airbrush and perfecting concealer brush
  • Double-ended angled brow brush and spoolie
  • Double-ended smudge brush and precision liner


The Ready In 5 Eye Brush Set is perfect to toss into your purse, luggage, diaper bag…you name it!  The Ready In 5 set includes:

  • Crease brush
  • All-over shadow brush
  • Smudge brush
  • Liner brush
  • Pouch


If you’re looking for individual brushes for specific purposes, Sephora has them too.   Isn’t that strawberry handled brush adorable?!


No cosmetic collection is complete without a great beauty sponge.  The Eggspert Mini Sponges are great for spot concealing, highlighting, and blending!  Toss them in a bag and you’re good to go!

The Wild Bunch Sponge Set is almost too cute for words.  They look like the cutest little strawberries ever.  Each one of these blending sponges is the perfect size and shape to buff and blend foundation, highlighter, and all other formulations into the skin—even into the smallest corners of the face.  The shape of the sponge allows for a natural ergonomic grip with your fingertips for maximum hold and control.


The Sephora Gel Mask Hydrating & Quenching is a great way to help rejuvenate your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance.  This gel mask works like an instant splash of water.  Skin is left quenched, looking more beautiful, and it feels refreshed, softer, and supple.

The Sephora Total Age Defy Cream For Eyes & Lips is a collagen booster your skin will thank you for using.  This cream recharges the skin reducing the signs of fatigue and leaving skin softer to the touch.  It’s effective yet gentle, so even those with sensitive skin like me can enjoy the benefits.


Every woman needs some great staple beauty items to rely on and Sephora has anything mom could possibly desire.  The Sephora Dynamic Duo Face Brush is a dual-ended face brush to cleanse your pores to perfection.  Now you can cleanse and refresh your complexion with this innovative tool, complete with a slip-proof grip.  The nylon bristles clear trapped oil and bacteria from pores and the domed silicone brush exfoliates and sloughs off dead skin cells.  The skin is left smooth and delightfully bright, and what woman doesn’t want that?  The Detoxifying Foam Cleanser is a great addition to the duo brush, so you can get your skin perfectly clear, bright, and beautiful.

The Daily Brush Cleaner is a great way to keep your brushes clean, and bacteria free.  This quick-drying cleaner is an alcohol-free brush cleaning spray that doesn’t require water.  The cleaner’s unique formula is infused with lemon, lime, grapefruit, and tea tree oils that help to clean brushes naturally while conditioning and protecting hairs.

Whether at home or on-the-go, mom can take her favorite beauty products with her using the Far & Away Silicone Travel Tube.   With a tapered, large-mouth design, it allows for easy product transfer to and from the tube. Effortless to clean, it is dishwasher safe and reusable.

The Beauty Amplifier Set And Refresh Spray is a multitasking blend of long-lasting, makeup-setting polymers and feel-good ingredients like lemon balm and peppermint extract…oh my!  Prime your makeup and perk up your skin in one simple step.  The fine mist is perfect because it won’t leave large droplets on your skin distorting the look of your makeup.


Sometimes, the small details can pull together a whole look…the possibilities with Sephora are endless!

Sephora’s Colorful Face collection is available in an extended range of shades, including colors made to contour, highlight, and add the perfect blush to your cheeks.  The ultra-sheer texture blends perfectly into the skin without caking, allowing for buildable intensity of color.  Designed to be worn alone or layered together for more depth, these blushes provide a healthy glow that flatters any skin tone.  With finishes ranging from matte to satin to shimmer, this collection allows you to customize an endless possibility of fresh-faced looks.

The intensely pigmented Outrageous Intense Waterproof Gel Eyeliner glides on smooth, and stays put for an all day look.  This gel eyeliner features a new formula for everyone who has struggled with dried out, flaky, or streaky traditional gel liners.  The formula boasts a gel’s easy glide but then sets quickly for waterproof wear that lasts.  With 25-percent pigmentation—among the highest on the beauty market—and a built-in primer for budge- and crease-proof wear, this liner makes a lasting impression without the mess.

The smoky-eye look is easier than ever thanks to the Sephora Easy Smoky Eye.  This all-in-one jumbo eyeshadow and brush combo provides everything you need to create an easy smoky eye.  The Easy Smoky Eye is a double-ended smoky shadow stick that makes creating a smoky eye effortless with two simple steps.

Sephora’s Long Lasting 12 Hour Wear Eye Liner is a collection of ultra-pigmented eyeliners to create strong, beautiful lines.  This bold range of extended wear eyeliners provides a blast of color that stays put for 12-hours.  Create looks like those by professional makeup artists with formulations that are packed with highly concentrated of pigments. T he brush’s flocked tip is incredibly easy to use, allowing you to draw a line of color that’s precise, consistent, and intense—all in a single step.

Whether you shop Sephora online or take mom to her local Sephora store, there’s no way you can go wrong this Mother’s Day.

Motives Cosmetics By Loren Ridinger #Review


Motives Cosmetics by Loren Ridinger is the HOTTEST cosmetic line on the market today. From custom blend foundations to long-lasting rich formula lipsticks, Motives provides high-end customized cosmetics at a price anyone can afford. The Motives Costmetics line is for everyone from makeup artists, to salon owners, or just the everyday woman like myself.  I received a few different items to review and I couldn’t wait to try them out!Lumiere.jpg

The Lumiere de Vie Intensive Hand & Body Creme is SO appreciated by a busy mom like myself!  Between washing dishes, doing laundry, cleaning bedrooms, bathrooms, the living room, and tending to pets, my hands are washed constantly!  My hands are always so rough, dry, and painful from being over-worked and over-washed.  This creme is an intensive rich creme that saturates skin for long-lasting hydration. With nutrient-rich ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and sunflower seed oil, this powerful creme helps break the cycle of dryness and dehydration to give skin a new softness and suppleness.  I have had a hard time finding something that keeps my hands feeling great through all the abuse they endure, but the Lumiere de Vie Intensive Hand & Body Creme has worked wonders!


The Motives Lip Candies are out-of-this-world awesome!  Lip candies will give you lips a luscious shine infused with tingling spearmint. The sheer formula is layered with specks of glitter, coating your lips with extreme shimmer in sweet and tart shades of pink, brown and purple. Available in 8 shades: Milk Chocolate, Tart, Candy Bar, Rock Candy, Jawbreaker, Cotton Candy, Lollipop, and Butterscotch, so you can pick the one that’s just right for you.  The spearmint reminded me of the holiday season…these would make great stocking stuffers!


Last but not least in my box of Motives goodies, the Motives Shimmer Powder.  There are 4 different shades: Goddess, Starshine, Rose Diamond, and Bombshell so there’s one for every skin tone!  These Shimmer Powders are made of ultra-fine silky powder enriched with pressed pearls designed to reflect light for a shimmery, glam look. This Glam Collection of gorgeous shades adjust to your skin’s natural undertone, creating a sought after glow that beautifully highlights your natural features.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else, Motives Cosmetics are the perfect choice!
