‘Tis the season for holiday gifts. Every year, cosmetics companies seem to top themselves with stunning palettes, combo packs and super cute giftable box sets that make my wish list ever so long! This year, there is no shortage of holiday beauty packages featuring an array of beauty products. Here are a few that I’ve selected as my favorites. Hint, hint Santa!
Benefit – Primed for Takeoff
You’ll be ready for holiday travel with this combo set that includes some of Benefit’s most popular products including the POREfesssional priming balm, the Hervana blush swirl face powder, BADgal mascara and High Beam highlighter – all in an adorable mini suitcase package. I’ll take that in my carry-on thank you!
Kat Von D – Starry Eyes Makeup Palette
Never failing to provide a sense of dark drama, Kat Von D’s limited-edition box set comes with four eyeshadows in the ombre trend of gradient shades to try in one look or mix and match. Plus, two liquid lipsticks in matte or a metallic-foiled look that go on wet but dry to a smooth finish. It’s the perfect set to drop in your bag to transition you from a daytime look to evening party time!
MAC – All For Glamour Face Kits
MAC always excels in professional quality products and I-gotta-have-it packaging. This year’s holiday collection feature compacts with an upholstered feel featuring tufted pastel material on the outside and collections of eyeshadows, lip colors, powders and bronzers inside. The Face Kits are just one of the multiple compacts available from this collection, which also includes pastel leopard print accessory items. The compacts are pretty enough to carry as a clutch purse – I just have to figure out how to get my keys and ID in there!
Too Faced Confection Collection
Holiday candy is a tempting treat, but rather than risking your waistline on the indulgence, put on this sugary sweet collection featuring shadow “Bons Bons” that reflect the sparkle of the season and soft matte shades, plus eye and lip liners, lid primer, mascara, brush set and a pop of fuchsia lip color, all in a giftable reusable tote bag.
Sephora Color Daze Blockbuster
With a whopping 148 formulas, you’ll have an endless supply of color options with this set. I’ve used many of Sephora’s products and the quality rivals some of their bigger and more expensive brand peers. Make note that the product size of each color is small but this big ol’ box will provide a great sampling of multiple colors and products to play for days and days.
So many collections, so hard to decide what’s going under the tree this year. I think I’m going to need a bigger tree!
