Together with consultants Sephora Olga Tretyakova picks beauty gifts for mom. His — and for all moms in the world.
My mom is not a fan of surprises. Usually she says: “Ol, I ran out of dust” or “I would Like a lipstick berry shade and unsweetened spirits”. Or even specifically refers to the brand and three-digit number of the shade:) of Course, nothing prevents me to add something from myself, but that’s the Supplement, décor or if you wish, garnish to the main dish.
On the one hand, it is convenient. On the other — the skill of choosing her gifts I was missing. And for one joy in life I have less. Because, actually, look for something mom (and all whom I love) is high.
I fully realized only when we together with Lena and Yana decided to participate in the project for Sephora and quiz their advisors on the topic of readiness for the New year.
Walked between the shelves and pretends — that it certainly would have pleased the mother… and here it is, probably, too. And this? And this? But she is, and she does not enjoy, and it’s too dressy, it is unlikely there is a force that will force my mom to open the jar and to break such a beauty, and will stand on a shelf as a Museum piece…
Yeah, so what give?! In terms of the game, consultants need me to pick three gifts for different budget — 2000 rubles, 5000 rubles, and 7000.
And how nice that they are there. For such cases, they need.
I think I got everybody who was in the store. Set the task. Designated amount.
“And how old is the mother?” they asked from me.
And that got me thinking. Not the question, no:) Just that post not only about my mother!
And our readers moms can be any age. Even 40+ (like me). And mom is 50+. And mom is 65+. And this is three different moms!
If the first will be happy with some trendy palette holographic shimmers / highlighters, the second and third might want to get something less glowing? So how can we guess?
And then I realized that there is something that will delight any mom: good antiage-care. So we asked consultants to give me three options for every budget – 2000, 5000 and 7000 rubles. And I will choose the best.
You have to give the girls credit, they took it very little time. Our shoot lasted much longer:)
Budget: up to 2000 rubles

Yes, I know, I said that care is the best gift. But on the stand of Beauty to Go, suddenly found the flavors in vials of 15 ml. And these aromas from my mother’s youth: Pleasures Estee Lauder and Christian Dior Poison. Let this upgraded version of – key notes still have the same friends. I remember in my childhood I playing, broke a bottle of Pleasures. As contrived — still do not understand.
It’s time to return to mom duty.
And the aroma of the line “pillow fight”, Sephora Collection, as it turned out, very similar to Pleasures. In addition to soap, you can choose a body lotion (RUB 428) or shower foam (520 RUB.) and still fit in the budget. Well, almost.
But I took the soap foam. It will delight her often — every day, several times, it’s great!

Definitely – Filorga! I love their cream Time-Filler. Among fans of the brand, by the way, Ian, and Julia, and if our chief editor of the overlap that happens very rarely, so this exact thing! This is a case when “Beauty Insider highly recommends”. It seems that everything that we tried from Filorga, versatile and effective.
I’m sure my mom these creams would have liked. And I think your too. Because moms are good like that, usually save and buy myself a jar of the cream for more than three thousand allow myself about once in… once in never. In General, daughters should take matters into their own hands — and Yes, look after the mothers.

My choice: option # 2
Fluctuated between # 2 and # 3 – there is cool, my favorite Koreans. In a third embodiment, not only care, but also an excellent BB cream and cloth masks. Still won Dr Jart+. I tried this cream, he ochumennaya. The mask I just love. And never tire to recommend – as friends and mothers of friends.
And if not that, not another and not the third — then what?
Call mother with you to the store and pick up something from cosmetics.
Yes, I know that many of them don’t like to try it in the store. Mine, anyway, always says that it is unhygienic. Though I’m still trying…
But then the question of hygiene can be easily circumvented. In Sephora it was discovered the marvelous toy: the virtual selection of makeup. Go to the terminal which is located at make-up table taking pictures, it displays your image…
…and then you can try on eye shadow, lipstick, mascara, medium eyebrow or blush. It would seem — well, too news! Yes, these programs are in every smartphone!
But the thing is that there are not some abstract beauty, and specific shades of certain brands. Want to see how will look on you here, these shadows Marc Jacobs out with the lipstick from the Sephora collection? Please!
Any options you can save for the future, sending himself in the mail. (Very handy if you’re like me, after ten minutes you forget the desired shade.) Or upload them to Instagram and ask the subscribers what are all the same. (But this option is likely not for mom%)
In such a toy will like to play everything from small to large.
Which version of the consultants ‘ proposed Sephora like? What would you gave to your mother?
