Can I tell you how much I love gift sets?! It is pretty rare that I go through an entire full size product, I have about 5 products that I have bought again after I ran out and that is about it. Mind you I really don’t wear much makeup during the week because my captive audience is babies and two year olds. Therefore the good stuff if you will only makes its way out on the weekend if I manage to get out of my stretch pants and we make it to dinner or something to that effect.
This is my favorite time of year to stock up on all the high end products because they package them so conveniently in a set that you get to try so many things in an actual affordable price. I pretty much buy at least 5 different sets and then live off them over the following months. Plus there is always some latest and greatest product coming out that I want to try….I can’t help it I get bored easily. Here are my top 10 gift sets from Sephora. I’m sure you are aware and have been marking this on your calendar but the Sephora VIB sale starts tomorrow which is 20% your entire purchase. With this sale, I will tell you if you have your eye on a particular set get them as soon as you can! They sell out fast and then the prices get jacked up on ebay. I know from prior buyers remorse of years past. Make sure to use the code SEASONSET for a deluxe 8 piece sample with a $25 purchase.
Don’t mind the perfectly set pinterest image…….just saying……
#1 Marc Jacobs Eyeliner Set
If you remember from this post I absolutely love these eyeliners. The colors are super pigmented, glide on easily and the staying power is budge proof. When I saw this the other day at the Sephora by my sisters I squealed in delight…..literally. You get to try all 7 colors for less than the price of buying 2. I have a feeling this is going to sell out lightning fast!
#2 Sugar Lip Set
Once you try one you can’t go back. Then you secretly hate yourself every time you spend $22.50 on a full size one and then even more when you leave it in your car and it melts. I only buy the minis now. You can try all the colors and if you buy the bigger one you can split them up and gift them off to other people……the best last minute holiday ideas. These sell out incredibly fast. I buy one for my sister and mom every year for their stockings.
#3 Sephora Airbrush Set
You have heard me sing the praises of my Sephora concealer
and foundation brush before. The two combined equal the price of this set. This is literally the best bang for your buck. I cannot rave enough about the brushes plus it comes with the sweet carrying case.
# 4 Mia 2 Pure Glow Holiday Gift Set
I know I sound like a broken record and I will continue to do so until you finally take the plunge and get a Clarisonic. I mean this set is pretty amazing. The set costs the exact same price as if you were just to buy the Mia 2……..so basically you are getting all the products for free. Free, yes, thank you very much.
#5 L’Occitane Hand Cream Set
Always have one on my bed stand and one in my purse. The ultimate luxury in hand lotions. I usually buy a few of these sets and then bundle them with a nail polish or a crystal nail file
and give them as little gifts……they are always very well received!
#6 YSL Love and Lacquer Reds Set
You know how I feel about my YSL glossy lip stain
. It is pretty much the red holy grail and I will stand by it. It does not transfer onto your wine glass……seriously it doesn’t. It stays glossy, doesn’t bleed and when it fades it does so naturally and never leaves you with that weird red outer ring situation. Oh and it’s not drying at all. This set also comes with my newest obsession the baby doll mascara
which I convinced my sister to buy and she is in love. I’m telling you it beats out the top spot of They’re Real…..hard to believe but it’s that good. Did I mention this comes with a full size of the Glossy stain which retails for $35 just itself?!
#7 Fresh Skincare All-Stars
I love this line so much. The soy cleanser
is seriously my favorite cleanser I just wish it wasn’t so dang expensive ($38 for the full size
). This set hooks you up with all their top sellers including one of the sugar lip tubes. These sets always sell out first at my local store.
# 8 NARS Virtual Domination
Large size of the cult classic Laguna Bronzing powder
($38 by itself
) plus 4 of their best selling blushes. I have a mini Laguna and it really lives up to the hype, it is perfect for contouring, has no glitter and is the perfect warm subtle bronze.
# 9 Origins Bestsellers Kit
This price is amazing for samples of all of their best sellers! The eye cream is always on the top of lists for the best eye cream to use in the morning.
#10 Sephora Superstars
NARS blush, They’re Real, Josie Maran Argan Oil…..this set has literally all of the cult classics packaged up for you!
Bonus Round – Naked Vault Set
I mean it’s all the palettes plus a ton of limited edition gems……I think I would have to be extra good this year to get this under the tree right? Total lust list right there!
