My Favorite Holiday Gift Set
Gift set season is upon us! All over Sephora and Ulta, brands are creating seasonal sets at great prices to lure us beauty lovers in. I recently got one set that I think is really worth the money and I can’t wait to start using it! I think this gift set would be perfect to give to anyone who loves makeup and organization!
This Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda gift set caught my eye right away. On Sephora, it says this set is worth $336, but priced at $58–sounds good to me! This set comes with a planner, a leather zippered case, a mini Better Than Sex mascara, a mini Melted Matte lipstick in “Sell Out”, and a palette that contains 24 eyeshadow shades, 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer, and 1 blush. What more could you ask for?
I was initially really intrigued that the picture on Sephora’s website showed that the kit included a planner. I have been loyal to my Erin Condren Life Planner for years now, so I knew this would not replace that for my daily use. What I immediately thought about was that it would make the cutest blog planner. It might just be me, but I like to keep my day-to-day appointments and school activities separate from my makeup work and blog ideas/plans. Plus, it comes with this awesome leather planner case! “Don’t let today be a waste of makeup”–I mean how cute is that. I am excited to carry this around with me as I jot down new ideas! The planner also comes with stickers!
As for the palette itself, I love these shades for the holiday season. There is a good mixture of shimmers that make me think of a Christmas party, mattes for transition shades, and bright pops of color. Of course with shade names such as “Spiked Cider” and “Santa’s Helper”, you can’t help but get into the holiday spirit! I love it when palettes include highlighters, blushes, and bronzers with the eyeshadows because then I automatically look at this palette as ideal for traveling. The less I have to pack–the better! This palette is definitely what I will be taking home with me for Christmas!
I am also a big fan of their liquid lipsticks, and I love the shade that they include! You can see it swatched in the photo above next to the eyeshadows. I have used the Better Than Sex mascara many times before, and I know that I love it, so it’s always nice to have a mini one of those as well.
Do I think that this is an everyday palette that you will reach for a lot? No, probably not. But I do think this is a go-to palette for the holiday season and for upcoming New Year’s parties! Plus, I think the planner that comes with it is a major bonus and I plan to get a lot of use out of mine. Let me know what gift sets you are loving!
