Welcome back to my blog! Today I wanted to share the best holiday sets to splurge on at Sephora. The holiday season is such a great time to try new products and restock on old favs because so many brands come out with amazing bundles. I thought I would share some of the best sets out there while the 20% off sale is going on so you can grab them for yourself or a loved one!
I thought I would start with a staple beauty item that everyone needs to have in their collection at all times -- a good setting spray. The Urban Decay All-Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray has long reigned supreme in the setting spray category. This set is such an amazing deal because one setting spray is typically $32, so for $7 more you get two!
Within the same realm of staple beauty items, I am so excited to share this Beauty Blender set. I have finally accepted the fact that there is no real dupe for the Beauty Blender, and so I make it a point to make sure that I always have some in my collection. This set is an amazing value -- it's basically a year's worth of Beauty Blenders! I love that I can try all of the different colors as well as their soaps. This set is definitely one you don't want to pass up on.
Becca makes my favorite highlighters, and this is a great affordable set for those of you who are looking to try them out. They come in two of my favorite shades, Opal and Champagne Pop. The mini travel sizes are practical, but you still get a bang for your buck considering that it's very hard to actually hit pan on compact products.
This is another great affordable set that allows you to try a wide variety of Jouer products. Their highlight and lip formulas are stunning, and this set is a great way for you to add some rose gold items in your collection without splurging on full-sized items.
If you don't already have any of the Stila liquid glitter eyeshadows in your collection, I would highly recommend picking up a set. This is a product that you'll want to own in many different shades, so a set is definitely the way to go. I've listed several different sets, but I recommend the first two the most.
Out of this entire list, I would say that this item, the Beauty Blender set, and any of the Stila sets are the best holiday collections at Sephora. This set is such a great way to try out many different Hourglass products, from their bronzer to their blush to their highlights. This set is also really compact and perfect to travel with -- it has everything you need!
People have been raving about Cover FX's Custom Enhancer Drops for quite some time now, and this set is a great way to try out different shades for the price of one. The Custom Enhancer Drops are great to use under your foundation or as a highlight, and the Glitter Drops are great to use on your face or all over your body for special occasions like festivals and holiday makeup. The only thing that I don't like about this set is that I wish they included more wearable shades, like their bronze or highlighting shades, but these colors are still beautiful nonetheless.
As the set indicates, this bundle features some of Too Faced's bestsellers. The Chocolate Bar palette is one of my favorite palettes of all time, and you get two additional products for the price of one. This set would make an amazing gift!
The skincare section at Sephora is definitely something you don't want to overlook. It's so important to invest in skincare, and holiday sets are a great way to try new products while saving some money.
Drunk Elephant is a brand that I highly recommend. They're very pricey, but their products are worth it IMO. I bought a set similar to this one last holiday season and I've gotten great use out of it. The star of this show is definitely the TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, which you get a full size of in this set. This serum is a holy grail of mine and has made such a huge difference in my skin -- it's smoother, less textured, and less prone to breakouts. (Also-- how cute is this packaging?! I still have my box from last year's holiday set!)
Since I already have the TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, this is another option from Drunk Elephant that features their C-Firma Day Serum. I've been looking for a great day serum, and vitamin C is amazing for your skin. As I said previously, Drunk Elephant is a great brand that I highly recommend splurging on. However, their mini sizes are incredibly tiny and do not last very long (which makes it difficult to see a substantial difference in your skin), so I would definitely go for a holiday set that features a full-sized item (like the two listed here) over the ones that feature minis exclusively.
Ole Henrikson is another great brand that I've recently discovered after trying their Truth Serum, which I love. I've listed 3 great sets that are relatively affordable for skincare. They all feature my holy grail Truth Serum, along with some other great products like their moisturizer and eye cream.
Origins is another brand with so many great gems that are actually quite affordable for high-end skincare. This set features my favorite mask of all time, the charcoal mask. I also love their moisturizer, spot treatment, face wash, and eye cream. You're trying so many different products for less than $50.
SKII Pitera Essence Set ($99)
SKII Holiday Welcome Kit ($110)
The SKII Essence is one of my holy grail skincare items. It's made such a huge difference on my skin and I think it's worth every penny. I've listed two sets that give you way more bang for your buck for such an expensive brand. I purchased two of the first set last holiday season, one for myself and one for my mom!
Although this isn't a holiday set, I thought I would include it in this list of great skincare sets. Sunday Riley probably makes my second favorite serums after Drunk Elephant. I've been using their Good Genes Treatment and Luna Sleeping Night Oil for almost 3 years now and have repurchased this set a few times. This set is a great way to try two amazing products that will last you quite some time!
Lastly, I wanted to include a couple of mask sets because who doesn't love face masks? These two sets are great options that will allow you to try a wide variety of masks. Masks are definitely a skincare product that people like to switch up, so sets are a great way to try many different options. The Peter Thomas Roth set gives you a ton of product that will last you forever!
