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…… 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!
Honorable Mentions
Glam Glow Mask Set, I have the mask and it seriously is facial quality after one use.  Bumble and Bumble Non-Soft Softness kit, the invisible oil you’ve heard me rave about it.  Tory Burch Holiday Fragrance Set.  Fingers crossed for this Armani Si Gift set, have you smelled it yet???
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!

It was so hard to narrow it down to just these options!  What do you have your eye on?  I am not missing out on that NARS set or the Sugar Lip set, they both sold out early last year and I had total buyers remorse.  Hope you are having a fabulous day!  xoxoxo

    The YSL gift set has been on my list for awhile now!! Definitely need to buy it soon!

  2. November 5, 2014 / 6:16 AM

    My Benebalm is almost out already, so I might try the Sugar lip balms next. I already have a couple other things sitting in my cart x).

  3. November 5, 2014 / 11:15 AM

    I really want the Super Star set – and the sugar lip set!! It’s hard to resist all these fabulous ones and not buy them for yourself this time of year LOL!

  4. November 5, 2014 / 11:34 AM

    Umm seriously in love with the YSL set! You know I love a good bold red lip! And loving the Sugar set as well. Such a great idea to get the minis!

    I couldn’t agree more, they’re the best. That YSL set and the NARS palette are on my radar for sure :)

  6. November 5, 2014 / 12:10 PM

    I already have that Fresh kit in my cart, and now I’m being tempted by that eyeliner kit! My favorite Sephora set for holiday gifts is the fragrance sampler…I love that people can try out a bunch of different scents and keep the travel bottles, but then select their own full-size!

  7. November 5, 2014 / 12:28 PM

    Bite lipsticks also puts out a holiday set but they ALWAYS sell out before i can get to them #RAGE. that eyeliner set is LEGIT…i think i’ll put that on my list!

  8. November 5, 2014 / 12:52 PM

    The Origins and Nars sets look amazing! I have the Lancome Genifique one in my shopping cart right now! Love the freebie holiday sets they’re giving away for free with purchase!!!

  9. November 5, 2014 / 12:52 PM

    ohhh i love a good sephora gift set!! i used to get the perfume sampler from my brother every year and that was the best. xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  10. November 5, 2014 / 12:58 PM

    I really want the YSL set now! The Fresh set and the Marc Jacobs eyeliners are on my wish list. For once I don’t need anything Urban Decay because I have all the Naked’s plus several other palettes. :)

  11. November 5, 2014 / 1:06 PM

    Tomorrow is the day that brush set becomes mine!! I have the concealer brush and LOVE it, and have been wanting the foundation brush since you posted about it, so might as well get the whole shebang ;)

  12. November 5, 2014 / 1:24 PM

    Thanks for rounding up all these sets – you’re right that it’s hard to choose! I mostly am going to stock up on must-haves that I’m running close to empty on, but I’m hoping to get a couple Christmas gifts done, too!

  13. November 5, 2014 / 1:57 PM

    Ummmmm, I think I’ll take one of each, please. That hand cram is *hands down* the best stuff on earth. Pun intended.

    Have you seen the Insta linky I’m co-hosting today on the blog?! Check it out girly! It’s Insta, so it’s got your name written all over it :)

  14. November 5, 2014 / 2:08 PM

    Great post, very informative!! Love the holiday gift sets, best part of this time of year. I wish I was a VIB but i’m not anymore. Boo.

  15. November 5, 2014 / 2:15 PM

    Fab picks!! I would love that YSL set or the Sephora Superstars package. I hope that you are having a great day so far too. :-)

  16. November 5, 2014 / 2:15 PM

    I’m literally scooting over to Sephora right after this. HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT THEIR CHRISTMAS SETS? I am mean, it will be window online shopping but….

  17. November 5, 2014 / 2:19 PM

    The gift sets always suck me in too! Especially when you know you’re getting such a great bargain! I love both of the sets from Fresh!

  18. November 5, 2014 / 2:19 PM

    That Naked palette set is amazing, I need and want it! I am really thinking of trying those lip sets, Sugar looks sooooo amazing!

  19. November 5, 2014 / 2:28 PM

    but how does one choose!?! i will take the YSL and fresh sets please :) xo

  20. November 5, 2014 / 3:24 PM

    ooh i might have to get the sephora all stars!

  21. November 5, 2014 / 3:29 PM

    I can’t even imagine getting that Naked vault! So. much. makeup. But love all of your picks, I’m really wanting that Fresh set- love their skin care and balms :)

  22. November 5, 2014 / 3:54 PM

    Girl, you are killing me!! I want all of it. I totally wasn’t planning on buying any makeup for awhile, but this has changed my mind.

  23. November 5, 2014 / 4:22 PM

    I need to start making notes of these things for Christmas ideas!

  24. November 5, 2014 / 4:25 PM

    Ahh…all those sets are amazing. I really really want the Sugar Lips set though. I’m so obsessed with those.

  25. November 5, 2014 / 4:36 PM

    Ohhh I want them all! But I would settle for the Clarisonic set and the Sugar Lips set! I have wanted a Clarisonic for so long!

  26. November 5, 2014 / 5:24 PM

    eek! holy price tag on naked vault, that’s almost twice what I spend on all my makeup in an entire year! It’s so pretty though, look at all the fun things…

  27. November 5, 2014 / 5:27 PM

    I have many of the items in all of the holiday sets (clarisonic, all- yes ALL of the Sugar lip balms, l’occitaine hand cream, sugar lip scrub yada yada yada) I am coveting the Naked Vault. Can’t beat 20% off! I keep going back and forth on if I want to do it

  28. November 5, 2014 / 6:43 PM

    The Naked Vault set is genius! Even though I own most of the palettes already, I just can’t help but lust after it. And that Sugar Lips set is fantastic too! Counting down the minutes til the sale tomorrow :-D

  29. November 5, 2014 / 7:39 PM

    i really don’t shop at sephora because it is so overwhelming, but i am thinking i want to buy something for the sale. normally i don’t like gift sets because they have stuff i don’t want, but some of these are great value.. I don’t need the blushes but I might try laguna.. I have the hoola bronzer and I don’t adore it, but maybe i’m not using it properly lol… i definitely want to try the ‘they’re real’ mascara. you’ve almost got me sold on the love and lacquer set … almost!

  30. November 5, 2014 / 7:50 PM

    VIB Sale starts tomorrow, and I can’t wait! I’ll be buying the YSL gift set, the Origins set, and that Urban Decay one. That is amazing!

  31. November 5, 2014 / 7:58 PM

    A definite yes to the Fresh & L’occitane ones! I’m obsessed with both lines!

  32. November 5, 2014 / 8:57 PM

    You can never go wrong with glosses for Christmas! I love these packages, they are great deals and everyone loves Sephora.

  33. November 5, 2014 / 9:25 PM

    That is quite a list – perfect for all the upcoming holiday parties!

  34. November 5, 2014 / 10:48 PM

    Well, I just added 5 of these to my Christmas list. I should probably just tell my dad to buy them tomorrow while they’re on sale!!

  35. November 6, 2014 / 5:49 AM

    Love the Sephora gift sets, I’m with you, it takes me forever to go through an entire full size product, and by then I want to try something new. Hate that they sell out so fast! Thanks for narrowing it down!

  36. November 6, 2014 / 2:22 PM

    I – for some odd reason – don’t normally do sets, but some of these are great! I’m especially loving the sephora superstars one! And hey, if I can get it 20% off right now, best time to try it, right??

  37. November 6, 2014 / 11:54 PM

    Those are my absolute favorite eyeliners of all time in the history of the galaxy. Period. Worth every penny!!!

  38. November 7, 2014 / 4:10 AM

    ahhh those eyeliners. I neeeeed!!!

  39. December 30, 2014 / 10:43 PM
