Tis the Season!

23 Nov

It’s that time of year that everyone loves, well maybe not everybody, but most people love the thought of Christmas. The sights and, oh yes, the sounds of the holiday season are everywhere around us. I think I’m somewhere in between love the holiday to make those Christmas carols stop already! In the famous Christmas song they sing “tiny tots with their eyes all aglow” well I know what gets my eyes all aglow this time of year –  cosmetic holiday sets! Maybe it is the most wonderful time of the year. From perfume sets, make-up, skin care, hair care and body treats you will find a set for anybody in your life, or a gift for yourself (why not?).  The great thing about these sets is that they are usually at a good price point. The amount of product you get is unbelievable for the price. Sephora is probably the best place to check because of the array of brands they carry with exclusive offers or sets and major department stores carry an abundance of perfume sets.

A few great blockbuster sets worth mentioning . . . 

Smashbox Wish for the Perfect Pallette for $59. It is worth over $260 and a portion of proceeds benefits the Children’s Miracle Network. 

The kit Includes:
49 eye shadows
10 cream eye liners
6 brow powders
1 brow wax
8 lip glosses
2 blush
1 bronzer
1 highlighter
4 mini brushes (eye shadow, eye liner, angled brow and lip)


Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Shimmer and Shine Collection for $54. This is valued at $142 and exclusive to Sephora.

The set includes:

4  Eyecolors in Shimmer (frosted cappuccino), Flicker (burnished violet), High Shine Gold Medal (pale gold), and High Shine Vapor (graphite)
 Big & Bright Eyeliner in Intense Black
 Clear Radiance All-Over Face Color (sheer translucent glow)
 Pink Petal Blush (bright poppy pink)
 100% Natural Lipgloss in With a Twist (tulip pink)
 100% Natural Lipgloss in Sprinkles (diamond shimmer)
 Full Tapered Blush & Eye Brush
 Booklet featuring instructions for Shimmer and Shine looks

Lorac Box Office Sensation for $56. This is also exclusive to Sephora which is well worth over $56.

This set contains:
36  Eyeshadows
9  Lip Glosses
3  Blushes
Duo Bronzer

*Most of these Blockbuster sets do sell out quickly for obvious reasons so I would try to get your hands on one as soon as possible. It is like shopping for Tickle me Elmo for make-up junkies. I know what is on my list this year*

      I couldn’t find it on the Sephora website which means maybe they are sold out but it is still on the Smashbox website and Duty Free has them too.
