Gift Guide Holiday 2017

Holiday Gift Guide: Sephora Sets

November 22, 2017

Today I have my very first Holiday gift guide of the year featuring some amazing beauty discovery sets and kits from Sephora to celebrate the beauty junkie in your life. This time of year always provides the most tempting value sets and travel-sized beauty gifts with options both affordable and from the luxury shelf that any beauty lover would simply adore. If you’re anything like me I suspect you might want to keep a couple for yourself … or most of them! I think discovery sets and kits are a great way to experiment with various (new) products without committing to the full-size ranges and accommodating price tags. For this edit I have selected an abundance of various sets and kits ranging from makeup to skin and haircare that I think look like great beauty bits either for yourself or for others on your gift list. Happy shopping and stay tuned for more guides coming up in the next few weeks!

  • 1. Pat McGrath LiquiLUST 007 ($75) – features the new LiquiLUST lipstick formula by legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath. The set, which is available in two color options, comes with three 0.17 oz / 5 mL LiquiLUST Liquid Lipsticks, a 0.03 oz/ 1 g Crystalline Micro-Fine Pigment, and a 0.46 oz / 13 g Clear Vinyl Gloss.
  • 2. Jo Malone Luscious & Lively Trio ($85) – is a lovely medley of one of Jo Malone’s most fan favorite scents, Wood Sage & Sea Salt. This set serves as an amazing introductory offering a 1.0 oz / 30 mL Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne, a 0.5 oz / 15 mL Wood Sage & Sea Salt Body & Hand Wash, and a 0.5 oz / 15 mL English Pear & Freesia Body Crème
  • 3. Sephora Favorites Skin Wonderland ($64) – is one my personal favorite kits with a good variety of must-haves, including two full-size products. If you’d like more details on this set, I have a post about it right here.
  • 4. Stila Eye For Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set ($45) – features a set of six deluxe-size eyeshadows featuring three Glitter & Glow shades and a sneak peek of three new Shimmer & Glow shades launching in the Spring of 2018. I’ve been strongly considering purchasing this set for myself because many other beauty bloggers can’t seem to rave enough about the overall formula and colors.
  • 5. Sephora Collection Face Mask Magic! Face Mask Set ($25) – includes 6 of Sephora’s best-selling sheet masks. Hands down, the Sephora Collection sheet masks are my go-to and I use at least 1-2 per week. If you’d like more details on a few of the individual Sephora Collection sheet masks, I have a post about them right here.
  • 6. Drunk Elephant Volume 1: Hot Date ($98) – is a nighttime system of DE bestsellers for smooth, refined, hydrated, and glowing skin. Drunk Elephant is one of K-Beauty’s top brands and many sing nearly their praises because their products are simply game changers. This set includes a 1 oz/ 30 mL T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, 1 oz/ 30 mL Beste Jelly Cleanse,  0.5 oz/ 15 mL Lala Retro Whipped Cream, and a 0.27 oz/ 8 mL Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil.
  • 7. L’Occitane Almond Home & Away ($52) – for an ultimate luxury bath and body treat. This is a  set of indulgent, almond oil-infused formulas that nourish and soften skin. L’Occitane is one of my favorite bath & body care lines. While their items may be spendy and not exactly maintainable for the everyday, I love picking up their Holiday gift sets every year. This set is actually quite a bargain since it includes a full-size Cleansing And Softening Shower Oil.
  • 8. Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon Collection ($135) – is a giftable collection of 18 deluxe Matte Crème Lip Crayons, and includes the colors: Léché (dusty pale pink), Sugarcane (pale pink), Glacé (dusty mauve), Cava (lilac beige), Amaretto (peachy nude), Sucre (warm pink), Blood Orange (intense red), Pêche (warm peach), Tatin (rose pink), Red Velvet (rich, deep red), Liquorice (oxblood), Brandy (muted raspberry), Aubergine (eggplant), Pastille (blushed mauve), Molasses (rich toffee), Cognac (dark brown), Truffle (deep brown), Black truffle (black violet).
  • 9. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Gift Set ($140) – is a scent I’m exclusively hooked on. It’s a super flattering, sultry but light fragrance that has an impressive weartime. It’s classified as a floral but is not overpowering in any sense since quite a bit of florals tend to be just too much. This set is a deal you definitely can’t beat as it includes a 1.7 oz / 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray, 1.7 oz / 50 mL Bomblicious Shower Gel, 1.7 oz / 50 mL Bomblicious Body Lotion, and 1.0 oz / 30 mL Bomblicious Hair Mist.
  • 10. Belif Bestsellers On-The-Go Travel Kit ($20) – is complete on-the-go regimen of Belif’s bestselling skincare in a travel-friendly kit. As most of you know, I adore pretty much anything Belif and use quite a bit of their products in my daily routines. This set includes most of their current fan favorites from the Hungarian Water Essence to The True Cream Aqua Bomb.
  • 11. Marc Jacobs Beauty Snake Charmer 5-Piece Petite Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Collection ($39) – is a limited-edition set of MJB’s bestselling, high-shine lip glosses. I own a few of these and love them! They are about as close to a classic lipstick as a lip gloss can get with amazing coverage and pigment. This set includes the shades: Ch-ch-changes, Sugar Sugar, Skin Deep, Raspberry Beret, Boys Don’t Cry.
  • 12. Disney x Kiehl’s Hydration Essentials ($29) – is not only a fun and super cute gift set, but also one that does a whole lot of good for others who could use it the most. Kiehl’s presents a special collaboration with Disney, honoring the original and classic, Mickey Mouse. The purchase of this set helps secure 212 meals for Feeding America.
  • 13. Ouai Ouai To Go Kit ($25) – is a trio of must-have hair products for on-the-go. The ultimate travel set, perfect for this Holiday season if you ask me, it includes: 1.5 oz / 43 g Dry Shampoo Foam, 1.7 oz / 50 mL Wave Spray, 0.33 oz / 10 mL Hair Oil, and 3 Elastic hair ties.
  • 14. Hourglass Confession Refillable Lipstick Set ($54) – features 3 limited-edition lipsticks in exclusive new shades, including: My One Desire (dusty mauve), True Love Means (pink nude), You Are My (medium rose brown).
  • 15. Tatcha Bestsellers Set ($59) – is an exclusive collection of Tatcha bestsellers offering a daily ritual to purify, polish, and nourish skin inspired by the beauty secrets of geisha. Another skincare brand I adore, Tatcha has an amazing line of hydrating and aging combating products. This set is an amazing value and provides literally their best-selling items that are a must-try if you’re thinking about delving into the brand.
  • 16. Kopari Coconut Multitasking Kit ($40) – is a great introductory set and the sizes are perfect. Not too big and not too small, you get a great amount of product to try out and see how they work for you. In this set comes: 2.5 oz / 75 mL Coconut Melt, 0.5 oz / 15 mL Coconut Sheer Oil, 1 oz / 30 mL Coconut Balm, and 1 oz / 30 mL Coconut Body Glow.
  • 17. Huda Beauty Contour & Strobe Lip Set ($25) – I kind of regret not picking up during the Sephora sale. I went back and forth many times but decided against it and have had remorse ever since. This is perfect gift for lipstick lovers, each set features a full-size Lip Contour, a mini Liquid Matte Lipstick in a complementary shade, and a mini Lip Strobe all housed in a super cute collectable tin.
  • 18. Glamglow Let it Glow! SUPERMUD Set ($69) – features Glamglow’s most coveted face mask from the classic Thirstymud all the way down to the Gravitymud.
  • 19. Burberry Burberry Festive Beauty Box ($40) – is a limited-edition Festive Beauty Box containing four Burberry makeup favorites to create the iconic Burberry look. The four classics include: 0.11 oz / 2.5 mL Cat Lashes, 0.17 oz / 5 mL Fresh Glow Deluxe Mini in Nude Radiance No.1, 0.002 o z/ 0.8 g Lip Velvet Deluxe Mini in Oxblood, 0.06 oz / 1.8 g Eye Colour Glow in Gold Pearl.
  • 20. Lancome Monsieur Big Mistletoe Ready Ornament ($25) – is literally the cutest gift I’ve ever seen and wish I had known about it during the sale. This is a Sephora-exclusive ornament set that features a travel size bestselling Monsieur Big mascara in Big is the New Black and a full size Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick in the shade Pink Power.
