Holiday Beauty Sets - Part 2 + Gift with Purchases available now!!

 I always get giddy with excitement when the first round of holiday beauty sets are released, but this year is turning out to be the best season yet for us beauty addicts. I made my shopping rounds today eyeing everything in sight from Sephora to Nordstrom and everywhere in between. I've been filling up my virtual shopping cart with new items each week and I'm well on my way to becoming a Sephora VIB customer (i.e. you have spent way too much money on beauty products this year!)
For even more beauty sets, check out Part 1 here.
What's on your beauty wish list?

Stocking Stuffers:

This mini set includes the best selling 'Kitten" eye shadow.

Get two for the price of one!  
I love this brand and you could break up the set for mini-gift toppers
or stockings or just indulge in them for yourself!
Too Faced is becoming one of my favorite brands - a must try.

I hear good things (for the most part) about these lip products,
I'll be picking them up on my next trip.

I  tried the mini lipgloss and it has a mild tingle and did plump my lips a bit.

Gift Sets:
This is one of those great sets to give someone you don't know that well and don't
 want to spend a fortune or secret santa at work.
A nice trial set if you are looking for a BB cream. 

I love the natural with a pop of color in these lip crayons and a cool tin case to
store bobbi pins or whatever else you can think of.
Best selling mini lipglosses
This is another amazing value set if you already love this lipstick - one lipstick would cost you $24, for $10 more you get a second lipstick, a lip liner and a lip insurance product. 

This cool pop art storage tin includes a full size Primer and Mascara.. 
One of the best cleansers I have ever used and it will last you most
of the year +  bonus facial wipes in this set.

Splurge Sets:
7-pc set with all the  botanical-based bestsellers 
 Give Me More Lip $59 (a $200 value!)
For the ultimate lip addict - full size products divided into 4 colors: reds, berries, pinks and nudes.
*This sold out fast a couple of weeks ago and now it's back in stock - get it while you can! 

I may ask Santa for this one!

The biggest splurge:

This limited edition includes 12 lip gels and a special red "showstopper" lip color
aligned like piano keys inside the jewelry box. 

Don't forget the men in your life!

All the best of products for men.

  1. Holy chic....that Marc Jacobs lip set??? WOW. I think I'm going to get the Claudalie gift set, I love their products, it feels so indulgent. I wish I could just buy the Benefit tin, the pop art is awesome.
    Nice gift researching Tracy ;)
