Sephora's holiday sets are already here, and we plan on gifting them to ourselves
Get your holiday wish lists ready because the limited-edition Sephora holiday sets have officially dropped. There’s buzzy skin care products, hair care, and, of course, lots and lots of holiday-themed makeup. The sets are usually only available from now until the winter holidays and feature products that are perfect for gifting—even if that gift is from you to yourself.
The curated sets are one of the not-so-secret ways to score serious deals on high-end products. Or they’re the perfect excuse to try out that must-have eyeliner or mask before splurging for the full-size.
Whether you decide to rack up those Beauty Insider points for yourself, want to get a head start on that holiday wish list, or plan to gift these to your besties, these beauty sets are pretty hard to pass up. Go ahead, check out a few of our top picks for this year’s Sephora holiday sets. We know fall just started, but winter will be here before you know it.
Olaplex Holiday Hair Fix Set
Hairstylists have sworn by Olaplex for its ability to repair any broken protein bonds in your hair, giving you that healthy, frizz-free shine we all want. These products are sulfate-free, vegan, and cruelty-free, so you can feel good about using them on your precious locks.
Too Faced Hot Buttered Rum Palette
Rich, coppery tones comprise this neutral palette from Too Faced. Complete with four shimmery shadows and four matte shades, the festive eyeshadow palette makes for a great gift. We especially love the shadow names, including “Bottoms Up,” a matte brown, and “Warm & Fuzzy,” a glittery champagne.
Tarte Merry Metals Brush Set
Get (or give) every brush you need to create a full face with this complete set of full-size brushes from Tarte. With a highlighting brush, rounded cheek brush, powder brush, tapered blending brush, and flat shader brush, this set is ideal for any glam geek.
Kiel’s Since 1851 Bright Delights Set
Get three Kiehl’s products in this festive set. It’s suitable for all skin types—from normal to dry to combination—and promises that the hand-selected favorites aid in more hydrated, radiant skin.
Sephora Collection Penguin’s Favorite Party Set
A 10-piece set like this really has something for everyone. A lip mask, a face mask, and melting shower jelly bring on the major relaxation vibes, while hand balm, lip gloss, and eyeshadow bring on the glam. Plus, the penguin packaging really is too cute.
Ole Henriksen Truth Be Toned Set
This affordable set includes Ole Henriksen’s brightening skincare bestsellers: a top-rated vitamin C serum and a pore-refining toner.
Sephora Favorites Superstars
The Sephora Favorites sets are arguably some of the best bang for your buck when it comes to trying out new beauty, because you can get a ton of mini, top-name products that have been curated by Sephora itself. The “Superstar” set this year features nine bestselling makeup essentials—including a full-size version of that coveted mega-watt Fenty Beauty highlighter.
Clinique Almost Lipstick Mini Duo: For You For Me
We love the mantra behind these flattering tinted lipsticks that adjust to your skin tone: “one to keep, one to give.”
With Sephora holiday sets marked by price point ($15 and under, up to $100 and under) or by the recipient (For Her, For Him, For Them, For Teens), it really makes that gift exchange party a whole lot less stressful. Especially when you’ll get ready for said party in makeup you already snagged for a steal.
