I have loved holiday beauty gift sets as far back as I can remember. I once made my mother spend extra on Estee Lauder productsso she could ‘gift’ me a beauty box set (complete with plastic tray…it was the early 90’s) for a mere $29 extra. And guess what? I used maybe one quarter what was in there and the perfumes were NOT me. Well here I am many (many) years later and I still love gift sets, but only covet those I KNOW I will use up to the last drop. Here are 7 gift sets that are drool worthy!
1. Stila Cosmetics Dream In Full Color Palette, a $336 value, $39
Confession time! I literally just bought this a few hours ago. I couldn’t resist. Stila makes some of the best eye shadows on the market and the colors in this set are beautiful. Comes with blush and eyeliner too. I can’t wait to tear into this.
2. Philosophy Sweet Kisses & Merry Wishes™ Set ($70 Value), $36
Yes, I bought this too! Who can resist eggnog body wash and lip gloss? I know I can’t. Did I say I bought this for myself? I did. Bought fullsize bottles of holiday scented body wash as gifts for others too. If you need little gifts, just break this apart and you will get 4 wash/gloss sets!
3. Giorgio Armani ‘Beauty Box’ Set ($310 Value) (Nordstrom Exclusive),$215
Armani makes the best foundation I have ever used, so who wouldn’t want this? The colors look amazing.
4. Sephora by OPI Glimmer Wonderland Eighteen Piece Mini Nail Colour Set ($81 Value), $48
Get this and you will have (or gift someone) all the nailpolish they will need for the coming year. The colors are brilliant.
5. Bobbi Brown Fall 2012 Beauty Trunk, $1000
I don’t think I have to tell you why this looks so amazing, do I? It speaks for itself! True it’s expensive, but you can toss everything cluttering your drawers.
We LOVE Kate Somerville products so this is a great value. You should restore and renew your skin for the new year, no?
7. Yves Saint Laurent Sephora Holiday Glamour Set ($98 Value), $65
I love pretty much all things YSL so of course I had to own this as soon as it came out! The makeup bag is adorable too.
