Sephora Splurges: Gifts Over $100

If you’re looking to wow someone, these Sephora splurges will do the trick.

1.) Gabrielle Chanel Eau de Parfum

Gabrielle perfume by Chanel

Sephora

In 2017, the house of Chanel launched its first new scent in 15 years: Gabrielle. Named after Ms. Gabrielle Chanel herself (Coco was just a nickname), this is Chanel’s in-house perfumer Olivier Polge’s first scent for the brand. Prior to partnering with Chanel, Polge created fragrances for Burberry, Giorgio Armani and Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb.

Gabrielle is a classic floral fragrance with hints of jasmine, orange blossom, Grasse tuberose and ylang-ylang. The scent is sweet but not too sweet and perfect for day or night. Plus, this elegant perfume comes in a redesigned classic Chanel Number 5 bottle, which true Chanel fans will love.

2.) Airwrap Styler From Dyson

Dyson Airwrap is the best curling iron around

Sephora

Dyson perfected the vacuum and has pretty much perfected the traditional curling iron with its new Airwrap styler.

This tool is not just a curling iron: it’s perfect for at-home blowouts of all type. We will warn you – the Airwrap Styler is expensive, so if you’re not looking to splurge, keep reading. However, if you have a lady in your life who loves having the latest and greatest in hair care and loves styling her long locks, then this is the perfect gift for her. Why? It’s designed for all hair types and utilizes Coanda air styling, which won’t dry hair or damage with extreme heat. Even better? It’s simple to use.

LaMer is the best all-around under eye cream

We’ve searched high and low for the best under-eye cream. We looked at creams to combat puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles and more, and at the end of the day, our number one choice was clear: La Mer Eye Concentrate.

Yes, it’s expensive, but yes, it’s worth the price. The cream is lightweight and dramatically reduces the appearance of dark circles, discoloration and puffiness in just days.

2.) REPLICA’ Memory Box – Maison Martin Margiela

Maison Martin Margiela Replica Gift Set

Sephora

Maison Martin Margiela is the scent of the season. Ok, it was last season as well, but it’s still relatively unknown by those that don’t keep up with the latest fragrance trends. While the REPLICA’ line has been around in Paris since 1994, they’re near impossible to find the U.S., which makes it one of the most sought-after fragrance lines.

Maison Martin Margiela scents don’t come cheap, and the trial sizes are the perfect way to get to know a new scent.

2.) GlamGlo SuperMud Charcoal Face Mask

GlamGlo mask Sephora gift

Sephora

We at Top 5 are obsessed with face masks, and GlamGlo is one of our faves. While we love sheet masks (especially when we travel), there’s just something about an old-fashioned mud mask that can’t be beat.

GlamGlo’s SuperMud Charcoal Face Mask helps to minimize pores while helping to soothe and clear your skin. Holidays can wreak havoc on your complexion, which is why a good face mask is key. In addition to charcoal, this SuperMud formula has a mix of six acids: glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, pyruvic acid and tartaric acid. The charcoal helps to remove dirt and other congestions, and the acids help to purify the skin, leaving it healthy, clear and bright.
