It may still be a little early, but it’s time to get a head start on the holiday shopping. You’ll be glad you did before the shopping rush begins. If you’re not into makeup, shopping for someone who enjoys these types of presents could be a bit daunting. But that’s where I come in! I’m here to help make you shopping experience a tiny bit easier. Unfortunately, I can’t help with the huge crowds or long lines.
While browsing Sephora’s website for … well, let’s just say a while … I found some great holidays sets that would make the perfect present. Majority of these are affordable sets with a few luxury ones thrown in – just in case – hint, hint!
Stila Color Me Glossy Lip Glaze Set
Stila Lip Glazes get amazing reviews and this Lip Glaze Set is not only affordable, $28, but will make a great stocking stuffer for someone just getting into makeup. The set contains nine Lip Glazes (0.45 oz) in the shades: Cranberry, Persimmon, Melon, Dazzleberry, Wildberry, Strawberry Cream, Passion Fruit, Kaleidoscope, and Amaretto. Keep in mind these are smaller sizes, but you’re getting nine of them.
Tarte Thoughtful Treasures Best-Sellers Set
Sephora is known for their holiday best-sellers set and it’s the perfect way to try out a brand for the first time or to get multiple items for a ridiculously low price. The Thoughtful Treasures Best-Seller Set is only $19 and comes with three of Tarte’s best-selling items.
Too Faced All I Want for Christmas
Are you looking to get someone a little nicer makeup set for Christmas or birthday? One item worth checking out is the Too Faced All I Want for Christmas. The set retails for $45, but you’re getting two full-sized items, two deluxe items and a nice palette she can bring to work or school. So don’t get turned off by the price. I’ve swatched this at Ulta and it’s a gorgeous set. I plan on picking it up soon.
Benefit Holiday 2013 Advent Calendar Countdown to Love
I’m really torn about this set. The Holiday 2013 Advent Calendar from Benefit is seriously adorable. For $68, you’re getting 24 deluxe size beauty treasures. What’s cute is you can open one door each day to discover what treat is in store for you. I’ve read there are a few special surprises in there as well.
Rockin’ Red Hot Lashes Set
Mascara has always been a favorite for many women. Why not get a cute little mascara set? The LORAC Rockin’ Red Hot Lashes Set is the perfect gift for anyone who loves or needs mascara. For $23 you’re getting a bright red, studded eye lash curler and a deluxe sample of the PRO Mascara to curl, lengthen and thicken lashes.
Tarte Clutch The Spirit Lipgloss Set and Clutch
Tarte is on fire this holiday season! One of the sets I’ve had my eyes on is the gorgeous Clutch the Spirit Lipgloss Set and Clutch. This stunning set features eight deluxe size Maracuja lip glosses in new shades: Spirit, Dash, Laugh, Play, Vixen, Dance, Sing, and Star. You’re also getting a stylish clutch purse.
Tarte Off the Cuff Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette and Bracelet
And last, but certainly, not least is Tarte’s Off the Cuff Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette and Bracelet. This is the must-have palette for blush lovers. It’s on my personal list, but I’d have to see it first to make sure the colors will work for my skin tone. The set includes four Amazonian 12-hour blushes (0.158 oz) in Dollface (light pink), Dazzled (soft rose), Darling (nude melon), and Crave (pink peach), and the Amazonian clay bronzer in Park Ave Princess. You’re also getting a wearable, eco-chic bow bracelet.
