There are plenty of people out there who have already finished holiday shopping
and wrapping their gifts (and love to talk about it every time you see them). But joke's on them this year — because, for once, it pays to procrastinate.
For all you last-minute shoppers,
Sephora just slashed prices on some of its most tempting holiday releases and year-round staples — and we're not just talking about a few dollars here or there. How about half off an eyeshadow palette stocked with staple shades that every makeup wearer should have? There's also a deal on NARS lip colors, which almost never go on sale, along with a few dope kits from Bite Beauty and GlamGlow.
In other words, the time for procrastination is over. Find some of our favorite deals, ahead.

Since December hit, we've been wearing nothing but Tannin (a poppy red shade) on our lips — and have racked up so many compliments, we wonder why we didn't start earlier in the year. The color and three others (including a limited-edition light brown called Date) are housed in a tin so sexy, you won't want to give it away.
Bite Beauty Four Little Bites Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set, $15, available at Sephora
This buildable foundation is
used in film to give complexions glow without covering up freckles, which explains why some of its 43 shades are already selling out fast. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation, $19, available at Sephora

If heavy creams put a damper on your curls' bounce, try a soufflé. This one is lighter than most creams and oils, but still defines curl patterns while adding a hit of moisture.

Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are the stuff of legend because they feel featherlight, but drench lips in color. The only bummer is that these bad boys never go on sale — until now. Score two neutrals and two bold shades for a few bucks more than the regular price of one.
