On February 5, many will celebrate the Chinese New Year which calls for new clothes, bright colors and essentially getting rid of any clutter in your life. This year, we move into the Year of the Pig. Even if you don’t celebrate the Chinese tradition, you can still infuse your beauty and style with good fortune and good taste. Sephora has even launched a “Prosper in Beauty” campaign dedicated to the Lunar New Year. Their Red Envelope Program, for instance, means shoppers can spend $88 CAD and receive a Red Envelope with a chance to enjoy up to $888 off their next Sephora purchase. Several brands, including top fashion brands, have released limited-edition products to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Here’s some of the many items to splurge on this new year.
