The holiday season is quickly approaching (like seriously–Thanksgiving is tomorrow?!) so this is ’round about the time my makeup spidey senses begin tingling with JOY at the thought of holiday gift sets. If you followed this blog last Christmas season, you will know my obsession with holiday gift sets (especially ones from Sephora). I perused on down to the Sephora website and my eyes did lay on the most beautiful sight. Gift sets galore and bougie ones at that! My heart stopped, I fell to the ground and I died happy.
Just kidding. But I was not let down this year as the sets are looking just as beautiful. Some of my favorites and most anticipated include…
1 // Pat McGrath Labs Metalmorphosis 005 Everything Set
I have been SO. FREAKING. EXCITED. for the release of these metallic pressed pigments! I am definitely planning on using these for some more avant garde and graphic looks (I mayyyyyy have ordered it on Sephora as a birthday present to myself mwuahha) The set comes with 4 cream pigments, 4 metallic pigments, a dual ended eyeliner and a mixing liquid. The mixing liquid is used for a special “liquifying” effect that when combined with the pigments, looks like poured foiled metal on your face. There’s gold, silver, bronze and copper shades included.
2 // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit
When this beauty came out the whole makeup world rejoiced–an even better version of their original blush palette?! This palette is the “new and improved version” so to speak as it includes never before released shades and includes powder, bronzer, blushes and highlight. I have their original blush palette and if this is anything like it, the colors are beautiful. The light refracts in the softest, most flattering way on the skin. These are true luxury powders that create a soft focus and have stunning color.
3 // Laura Mercier Layer Up Caviar Stick Eye Coulour
While these may be a cult classic, I’m including this special holiday version as its a good excuse for anyone who has never tried these out (including myself). I’ve heard only good things about these sticks, which delivers long-lasting color with an easy swiping application. They are supposed to be great as a base to layer up a smoky look.
4 // Bite Beauty Lipsticks Amuse Bouche Lipstick Vault
Bite are among some of the creamiest and highest-quality lipsticks I have tried. The pigmentation, pretty fruity smell and comfortable wear make them a favorite of mine. This would be the ultimate luxe gift for a makeup lover–especially a lipstick fanatic. There’s 38 shades in this set of good-for-you vitamin rich lipsticks. Packed with omega oils and nutrients, they are supposed to give weightless cover.
These all look so beautiful–would you buy a luxe makeup gift like this for a friend?
