Last-Minute Beauty Gifts

I’m a notorious last-minute shopper. I’ve been known to be out shopping while the boyfriend is at my parent’s house cooking Christmas Eve dinner. Procrastination holiday shopping is in my DNA. Considering the number of people I see scrambling through stores this week, I know I’m not alone.

Department stores are my one-stop salvation, especially JCPenneys with in-store Sephoras. We have a few in the Cleveland area and I stopped by the North Olmsted store after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens (so amazing!) to grab a few gifts for my beauty-loving friends, and a treat for myself, of course! With styles so bright and gifts so right, JCPenney is where giving begins this holiday season.

I was beyond thrilled to find Formula X Alchemy II in stock since I missed out on the first one last year. I mean, what’s the fun of shopping if you don’t take a second to treat yourself? I couldn’t resist the bronze foil sparkler and it would make a fantastic stocking stuffer.

I’ve been on a huge face mask kick lately. The serum soaked sheets are all the rage and I’m obsessed with how amazing my skin feels after using one. I put one on every Sunday morning and chill. The Sephora Collection Face + Eye Mask Discovery Set is the perfect way to intro your friends and family to the decadent joy of masking, and for only $25 it’s super affordable.

Not sure exactly what kind of beauty products your giftee likes? Try a Sephora Favorites set like the Glamour Stash. There are a few different options in-store but I love this one because it includes great basics like a Beautyblender, something everyone can use that requires regular replacing.

I was amazed at all the gift options available at the Sephora inside JCPenney. Even more than appear online. And that’s on top of all the items available at the JCP Salon, like OPI and salon haircare. JCPenney has something for everyone on your gift list this holiday season with exclusive brands such as JCPenney Home, Liz Claiborne, Arizona, A.N.A., Worthington, as well as your favorite national brands.

I had a hard to deciding between all the makeup palettes and sets, bath & body gifts, skincare sets and more, like the adorable Formula X Bottle Service package of minis. To say that the boyfriend was mildly traumatized by my seemingly endless hemming and hawing would be an understatement.
