3 Holiday Gift Sets You Should Buy Yourself (Did I Just Say That Out Loud?)

Okay, yes I know this is the season for giving but it’s also the season for taking advantage of when the top beauty companies put out gift sets that that combine their best-selling products for much less than you would pay a la carte. I mean come on, you deserve a little self-love, right?? Obviously if you have friends and family members who share your beauty addiction buy them one too!

1.  Tarte Set of 5 Full-Size Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Glosses $34.50 ($105.00 value): This set can actually make you feel a little better about buying it for yourself since you can just keep your favorite shades and slap a bow on the rest and give them as gifts.  These unique glosses are both hydrating and long-lasting and thankfully don’t leave your lips looking like a frosty mall chick mess (which I forbid; frost is bad).  Active ingredient Maracuja Oil moisturizes while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving lips a fuller, plumped appearance.


 2. MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes Collection $36.00 ($78.00 value):  My love for MAKE UP FOR EVER is no secret, especially their Aqua Eyes collection, so you can imagine I have no intention of sharing a single item in this set.  It goes without saying that the full-size black and brown will be used on a daily basis (brown for day looks; black for winged eyes), and the little festive minis are perfect for holiday looks and to tuck in my purse for instant emergency “Ugh! I just got invited out for drinks but I didn’t put on any eye makeup this morning!” situations.


3.  Sephora Favorites In The Glow Set $45.00 ($111.00 value):  I don’t know who makes the product decisions over at Sephora but she or he gets a gold star for putting this kit together.  This nine-piece kit contains Sephora’s best-selling blushes, bronzers, and illuminators which allows you to try several different colors and consistencies at less than half the price.  The kit includes Nars Laguna Bronzer, Too Faced Choc Soleil Bronzer, Laura Mercier Golden Mosaic, Benefit High Beam, Bare Minerals Pure Radiance All Over Color, Lorac Perfectly Lit, Tarte Glisten Amazonian Blush, Stila Peony Convertible Color, and Tarte Flush Cheekstain. I personally already use a bunch of these products regularly so I’m just excited to have a small travel-size version to pop in my handbag for some instant glow.

Now to prove I’m not totally Veruca Salt this holiday season I am giving away the Tarte Set of 5 Full-Size Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Glosses to one of my lucky readers!  Make sure you check back tomorrow morning for the official contest post!
