NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Lip Cream Set | $49.99 ($65 value)

As makeup addicts, we can never have enough lipsticks right? No matter how many we seem to rack up, we tirelessly continue to purchase more BUT it seems that NYX Cosmetics might put a brief halt to that. Might. With 24 bold, creamy colors, it does beg the question…is our eternal lipstick haul over? I’m not sure about THAT, but I do know that this gift set would sustain your lipstick needs for a very, very, long time.

All in all, this would be an AMAZING gift for a new artist trying to build their professional kit or to just stash away for yourself… we won’t tell. *wink*

Origins Superstars Collection | $45 ($149 value)

Some say that beauty is only skin deep and we don’t entirely disagree. A good beauty regiment starts with your skin so it’s important that we pamper it. This Origins Superstar Collection makes spoiling your skin so easy. With 6 products to use, your skin will be glowing from head to toe! The collection includes a Night-a-Mins mineral renewal cream (very important for healthy skin), GinZing eye cream, a rose clay mask, a frothy face wash, Ginger Souffle whipped body cream, & Ginger burst body wash. These products are as luxurious as they sound, so grabbing them ALL at $45 is a no brainer!

bareMinerals Countdown to Gorgeous Collection | $79 ($213 value)

This Holiday set is much more interesting than any other collection because it also serves as an advent calendar! Countdown the days to Christmas by unveiling a beauty surprise every day. Its assembled of  6 lip glosses, 4 lip balms, 5 eyeshadows, volumizing mascara, veil finishing powder, and SO much more! This is definitely one of those gifts that you SHOULD give to someone else but would secretly love to keep for yourself. If you have extreme will power and can resist opening the calendar, any beauty lover would be so thankful to unwrap this!

Laura Mercier “The Iconics” Collection | $128 ($263 value)

Hand selected and assembled by Laura Mercier herself, “The Iconics” Collection is a showstopper. Comprised of 12 essential products the set includes a mini velour puff, a small fan brush, Caviar Stick Eye Color in Rose Gold (full size), Longwear Crème Eye Pencil in Noir (full size), a lip pencil (full size), Velour Lovers Lip Color (full size), face polish, foundation primer, Translucent Setting Powder (my fav),  Bonne Mine Stick face color, Radiance Baked Powder,  deluxe-size Eye Basics in Wheat, and a Deluxe-size Lip Glace in Bellini. The best part about this gift is that you can keep the draw set it comes in to utilize for makeup storage. Yes, yes, and yes!

These limited-edition holiday sets are some of the best out there but there were TONS more that we found (and wanted)! Be sure that while holiday shopping for the beauty lovers in your life, you snag a sweet deal for yourself. After all, once these collections are gone, they’re gone!
