As December winds down, and with the holiday shopping season reaching its pinnacle, let us consider a few brands that are offering up some fantastical deals. No matter what your budget- whether you are packing the peanuts, or happen to be on Rockefeller’s mobile payroll, there is something for everyone, here. Truly, if there is one thing I have a slight obsession with this time of year, it’s all of the fantastical offerings that beauty brands come up with to entice both old and new fans of their brands. Throw in a deal or two, and it’s love!
A Sampling of Splurge-Worthy Holiday Gifting Sets- The Must-Haves Edition
Hourglass is a brand that I will easily list in my top 3, as far as favorite beauty brands are concerned. With this holiday essentials kit, you have all the components of a beautiful face. Best of all, purchasing this in kit form SAVES, period. Essential? Naturally.
Art of Shaving 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave
This kit is geared towards the gents in your life, but I must confess that I am snatching this one up for myself. The Art of Shaving is a well-known brand in the toiletry world, and for good reason as it is THE BEST you can get in shaving. This best-of kit is gracing my bathroom counter, every single time I de-fuzz. Oh, and the lemon scent? That’s yummy, too.

MAC’ Primped Out and Guilty Passions Kits
With this edition of holiday gifting sets, MAC has surely outdone themselves,, with beauty sets that are as beautiful to look at as they are to use. Love them for the products, or love them for the adorable bags and clutches they come in, but please, for the love of all that is beautiful, love them long time.
Tarte Lipsurgence Set
If there is one Tarte product I love, it’s the Lipsurgence lip pencil. With just enough long-lasting color, and a slew of great for my lips ingredients, the only thing better than one lipsurgence pencil is this set of five.
Sephora by OPI GelShine System
The gel polish manicure is something I’ve been a huge fan of since my first salon Shellac. Bringing that same shine, finish, and long-lasting power to my apartment is the new Sephora by OPI gel nail polish system, which gives me the same salon-quality gel manicure, without having to shlep over to a salon and fork over the big bucks.
LUSH Mr & Mrs Frosty
When it comes to holiday bath and body cuteness, LUSH always brings IT in abundance. One of their many amazing offerings is this adorable duo: Mr & Mrs. Frosty, are knotted wraps that house three awesome bath bombs inside- Cinders, Butterball, and Golden Wonder. If you don’t melt at the sight of these two cuties, then you’re the one that’s made of snow.
BaubleBar and Essie Collaboration Gift Sets
What’s better than glitzy polish as a holiday gifting option? Why, adding a couple of stylish accessories, of course! Essie and Bauble Bar have joined forces this holiday season, pairing a polish to a bracelet, and giving you the choice of an additional bracelet, for only $50. Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but it’s Essie and BaubleBar that will keep your arms and tips dressed in style.
Stila Holiday Collection
Each and every year, Stila releases some gorgeous palettes and gift sets to delight for the holidays. This year is no different, no doubt, with the Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Set and the Snow Angel Color Palette. Both are functional, beautiful, whimsical, and packed with gorgeous colors, to boot!
These are just some of my favorite holiday things. Tell me yours in the comments!
