Christmas means party time! 
Sephora Collection has already drawn up a wish list to make our lives easier and to inspire us too! All that’s left to do is to send it on to Father Christmas:

Festive palettes 
Eyes, lips, cheeks, face, nails... For putting some colour into winter, we can trust Sephora and its very comprehensive palettes! What to try this month? A complete range of options and clever tone compilations.
Go into ecstasies over the giant diamond Into the Stars Palette, follow the tutorial with the trio Midnight is Coming or how about painting your nails with The Wonderful Land of Nails... Be creative, disguise yourself, transform yourself, be imaginative, innovate... it’s up to you!
Make-up palettes and nail polish kit, from €4.95 to €49.95

Surprise mascot
A cosy atmosphere, pine trees dusted with snow, a snow-covered village, and there, ears pricked, is a fox with a mischievous look in its eye... This year’s mascot, this wild creature with soft, copper-coloured fur, appears on all the collector’s editions created by Sephora Collection to add a touch of magic to the festive season:
A piñata filled with beauty surprises, a blockbuster eyeshadow palette, face powders, correctors, lips glosses and even tutorials, palettes to go crazy over (blushers, gloss, jumbo, eyes, face: it’s really great!), a little pouch for stashing everything, and decorated masks: it’s an incredible selection! From €2.95 to €84.95

My beautiful brush
The make-up brush expert Sigma Beauty delivers not just everything we need to complete our collection, but everything to care for and clean them. Our must-have of the month? Silicone gloves and sets, covered with burrs: proper cleaning mats, which lather up the brush head as it passes across. Make-up residue and other impurities are removed instantly...
From €22 to €185

Stylpro... the invention that’s revolutionising make-up brush cleaning/strong>
What could be cleverer than this make-up brush cleaner (driven by centrifugal force), which is like a washing machine for make-up brushes, washing them and leaving them completely dry?! And all without damaging the brush heads, and in just a few seconds (no more waiting hours for them to dry!). It really does do the job properly.

DryBar: Mission Perfect Blow-Dry
Washed, towel-dried, de-tangled, waved, clamped in curling tongs... Because our manes have worked hard for us this year, let’s reward them with these new products selected by DryBar: a super-powerful Buttercup blow dryer for guaranteed shine; Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam, that instantly absorbs impurities and leaves hair fresh, clean and bouncy; On the Rocks shampoo with charcoal and buildup removers; On the Rocks conditioner, that helps repair dried-out hair; and the Fully Loaded Christmas Kit, with Buttercup blow dryer, hairbrush, clips and a selection of travel-sized products.

An amazing new international head office for Sephora at Neuilly

All new right through! 80 firms hired to develop the site, 250 people recruited and 14 months of (hard) work... And here’s the result!
Sephora s’implante à Neuilly et installe son siège social de 15 000 m2 au 41 de la rue Ybry, réunissant 
Sephora has established itself in Neuilly and set up its 15,000m² head office at number 41, la rue Ybry, bringing together employees from the worldwide, European and French teams as well as the Sephora Collection staff, making a total of 700 people spread over 8 floors. So what’s the atmosphere like? Work areas (designed with our responsibility for the environment always in mind): The building was officially rated “Very Good” by the BREEAM* organisation with regard to its environmental impact, which encourages creativity... A completely transparent architecture for greater visibility and flexibility, a central atrium that’s a good meet-up spot, leading-edge IT, online services for the hundreds-strong staff, and much more... Here, everything possible is being done to ensure constantly improved interaction and communication! What else is in the pipeline? A “store lab”, a 150m² mock shop for the direct testing of merchandising and services, and an “Ybry” app for direct broadcasting of internal news, reserving work areas and even lending your parking space! ... a place that feels good to work in ...

*BREEAM certification is an environmental certification which was developed in the UK to rate the performance of buildings in relation to their design, construction and use. Eight categories of criteria are taken into account to achieve certification, including energy and water consumption, health, wellbeing, pollution, transport, floorspace occupation, biodiversity, materials and management systems.

Looking good
What are the new trends to try in the Sephora shops over the coming months? Sparkling blue eyes : smooth on this vivid blue liner and light up your eyes. Smoky eyes with shadows that flicker red and black (Red & Black Smoky) and, for the finishing touch, a glittery mouth (Glitter Lips), outlined in a velvet-textured vivid red and finely dusted with golden iridescent glints.
