There are few things I like to buy more than beauty sets. Yes, it’s exciting to get a single new makeup item- but when you get to try like four new products all at once, it’s kind of the best ever. I’m in love with so many of the holiday gift sets that are out for this year. There is so much glitz, glam and VALUE in these sets! I am dying to get the Benefit Cosmetics advent calendar (hint, hint boyfriend and family, haha). In fact, I’d seriously love to open any of these on Christmas day, and they’ll be just as fun to give! I’ve rounded up my top ten choices for the best holiday beauty gift sets below. Enjoy! xo
This BareMinerals collection includes a finishing powder and a face brush, the beloved well-rested face & eye brightener and a gorgeous lip balm in a sheer plum shade. It’s perfect to get a beautiful, glowing base to work with for all of your holiday looks, or for a quick pick-me-up before a holiday party!
I think beauty advent calendars are the best thing since sliced bread. This is a 12-day advent calendar that includes deluxe samples of some of Tarte’s best products, from face to lips to lashes.
This Stila set has just what you need to get ready for New Year’s Eve this year. A bold red liquid lipstick, a shimmery eyeshadow and their Major Lash Mascara (because who doesn’t want major lashes on New Year’s Eve?). This set even helps you finish off the look with a navy clutch and a bangle from BaubleBar (and $10 to spend at BaubleBar.com later on, too!).
This set has two of my favorite lip and cheek tints, Lollitint and Benetint. It also includes their “little sister” lip balms, which I have yet to try but would love to!
Benefit is my absolute number one favorite makeup brand. They suck me in with their fun packaging and great products. If someone wants to buy me this advent calendar for Christmas, I am totally into it, haha. Seriously though, this advent calendar is a full 24 days, and inside it is a whole bunch of deluxe sample sizes of bestselling Benefit products, as well as a few other cute gifts. Oh my gosh, I want this. SO BADLY.
This Glitz & Glam set is some serious bang for your buck- it features brands such as Smashbox, Deborah Lippman, Benefit Cosmetics, Make Up For Ever, Lancome and more. It has all the essentials to take your look from day to night for all the holiday parties you’ll be attending. This is another one on my wishlist, for sure!
This Too Faced set has three gorgeous shimmery shades of the La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creams. At only $28, this is a steal of a deal gift for any lipstick lovers you have in your life!
The reviews I have read on the Clarisonic Mia 3 have been pretty amazing. So amazing, in fact, that I really want one for myself. This set makes the best gift, as it not only has the Clarisonic Mia 3, but also a variety of different luxury skincare products to try out.
Who doesn’t want to receive Philosophy products for Christmas? For your friends and family that aren’t that into makeup, this Philosophy set is perfect. It has both daytime and nighttime intensive moisture treatments for face and eyes, and boasts a 5-star rating on Sephora’s reviews!
Firstly, the packaging and whole idea of this “carousel” gift set is super fun and so cute. Secondly, the value in this set is amazing! You get 12 eyeshadows (all of them are such gorgeous shades), two bronzers, two blushes AND their famous Better Than Sex mascara (which I still have yet to try, so obviously I need to buy this set). This would be such a perfect set not only for someone who already LOVES makeup, but also for someone who is looking to get into makeup a little more but isn’t sure what products to start with. In my opinion, the colors in this set are very universal and would look gorgeous on pretty much any skin tone!
Are any of these sets on your wishlist this Christmas?
