Sephora is the perfect place to get some holiday shopping done for almost everyone on your list. (Dad needs moisturizer, too, you know.) But while you’re crossing names off your gift list, you might as well take advantage of the holiday goodies and snag some killer beauty buys for yourself. While it can sometimes be difficult to decide whether you want a new eye shadow, blush, or lip palette, Sephora’s newest Once Upon A Night Blockbuster is the answer to your indecisive prayers.
Reminiscent of our favorite packaging from Limited Too (but much chicer, of course), the palette comes in a sleek, plastic case in the shape of an owl. Open up the dark, navy blue vault and inside you’ll immediately find a large palette that includes blushes, highlighters, bronzers, cream eyeliners, and brow powders. But there’s more. Tucked away on either side of the massive compact are three tiers of palettes, which unfold to reveal the owl’s “wings.” These are where the eye shadows live, as well as the lip glosses. All in all the mega-palette contains a whopping 78 eye shadows, 24 lip glosses, six blushes, six highlighters and bronzers, four brow powders, and 12 cream eyeliners. It’s also completely cruelty-free.
Though the pans of the individual products are relatively small, you have so many options. It’s entirely possible to make this palette go a long way, especially if you’re someone who likes to experiment with different makeup looks regularly. And despite the sheer volume of product in the holiday vault, the quality doesn’t suffer. One Sephora reviewer wrote, “I can create so many looks. The shadows have lasting power, even the ones that are not that pigmented — they stay on for a whole day!” Another marveled, “The colors are beautiful and versatile. Definitely a great Christmas gift or a nice pick-me-up for yourself!” And yet another commented that, “The eye shadows are nicely pigmented and go on smoothly, the lippies are all fantastic, and I love the selection of blushes and highlighters.” Naturally, we totally agree. Our beauty editors, in fact, were in total awe of the vault as soon as they saw it.
So whether you plan on buying this for a friend or just picking it up for yourself, this blockbuster palette is sure to be one of this holiday season’s biggest steals. Make sure to head over to sephora.com to get yours before it sells out completely.
