Urban Decay created Vice4, loaded with 20 gorgeous shades of their iconic Eyeshadow. It features a huge mirror, a double-ended brush, and a coordinating bag. This palette channels the darkly alluring, dimensional hues of an oil slick—inspired by their vintage shade name Oil Slick. These shades are filled with rich, deep jewel tones in a wide range of finishes—from velvety-smooth mattes and shimmering metallics to shades infused with micro-glitter. Each Eyeshadow in Vice4 is formulated with Urban Decay’s own Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients that deliver rich, velvety, blendable color that lasts and sparkle that stays in place.

Clarisonic Smart Profile Set ($299) 1 word three times: Clarisonic Clarisonic Clarisonic! Check out all of Sephora’s Clarisonic sets here. I’ve written before about (and just updated!) my Clarisonic and I wish I’d gone right for the Plus (now the Smart Profile). I purchased the Aria (now Mia 3). This may be the year where I decide to go for it! They also have a new men’s brush, plus Sephora has a few awesome special edition Clarisonic brushes – the Keith Haring ones in particular! You may find it easiest to make a comparison on the Clarisonic site or check out my review for a complete Clarisonic comparison chart then head back to Sephora!

It’s the perfect gift for any beauty conneosior, or treat yourself to this set for everything you need to highlight features, let eyes stand out, and create basic to sultry makeup looks.

The portable, sleek palette is designed to give you everything you need to finish, brighten, contour, and highlight your skin. Featuring the Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powder in Iridescent Strobe Light, a sheer illuminating highlighter that’s designed to emulate the way in which strobe lights capture and reflect light on the face—plus, it can be used dry or wet for a more intense highlight.

Tria Age Defying Laser ($495) If you’ve had your eye on this one (or any other Tria lasers), the 15% off sale is the time to pounce.

The Age-Defying Laser supports the natural production of collagen and elastin to diminish multiple signs of visible aging on the entire face for a more youthful, radiant, and refreshed look in as little as two weeks. Using the same fractional laser technology as professional in-office treatments, it works by sending targeted beams of light deep within the skin to support natural collagen production. As new collagen forms, fine lines, wrinkles, and imperfections are naturally sloughed away. It’s clinically proven, dermatologist recommended, and users say it works better than antiaging creams, lotions, or serums.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz ($21) Basically the #1 brow pencil of all time?

Bite Beauty Discovery Set ($55)  I love everything about Bite Beauty. Keep it for you, gift it, or break it up.
