I am a sucker for holiday gift sets. I look forward to two catalogs every November: Sephora and Bloomingdales Beauty. They have the greatest gift sets! I buy several every year and I love them! Last year I got a Bobbi Brown train case – it has two levels and I use it every time I travel. It was well worth the splurge! I think part of my love for gift sets was that my mom used to give me all the ones her clients gave her for Christmas – she never wanted them. They were a treasure chest of fun makeup items!
I buy this one every year – Stila’s lip gloss set:
This one is very similar from Tarte and I think I will get it this year, too:
I tend to go through mascara quickly – I don’t use it all that often and I sway from waterproof to regular depending on the day’s events. I think because I am always using two (three at the moment – I also have a Victoria’s Secret navy blue mascara that I LOVE!) they dry out quickly and go bad before I can finish them. All the more reason to love this Sephora set of trial mascaras!
This Laura Mercier trio has been on my wish list for years but I keep buying other moisturizers. If I am not using the always perfect unscented Paula’s Choice Slip Into Silk Body Lotion, then I am using a Sephora coffee scented tub, a Bath and Body Works peppermint (on after Christmas clearance last year!) or a THE hotel lotion my friend Beth sold me on. I added this to my Amazon wish list this year, but if I don’t get it I have a feeling I will *finally* buy it for myself.
And the fun scented shampoo body lotion combos from Philosophy always rock!
The funny thing is I don’t even have the Sephora or Bloomies catalogs yet! I just happened to check out Sephora to see what they had early. And I just missed the 20% off for friends and family last week. Bummer!
