I read on Facebook yesterday that there are ten Fridays left until Christmas. I double checked and it’s true! This gives us perspective on just how fast the holiday will be here, allowing ample time to prepare right now. Granted, I’ll still probably be perusing the mall on Christmas Eve’s Eve, wide-eyed and frantic, picking up last minute gifts.
As always, stores are ready for the holidays early and our fav. makeup brands have cooked up a holiday buffet of product gift sets that will leave us drooling. Here’s some of the top sets everyone is talking about.
Le Petite Tresor ($29)
Three full-sized lipsticks, regularly $22 each, in peachy pink Taffy, pinky neutral Nude Beach and semi-glittered burgundy Wham! It comes with a hand-sized sparkly turquoise bag.
Melted Kisses and Sweet Cheeks ($36)
Three mini Melted lip glosses in Nude, Peony and Fig, and Long-Lasting 16-hour Blush in Love Hangover, Justify My Love and Your Love is King.
Le Grand Palais $49
Includes: Eye shadow in White Christmas, Satin Sheets, Vintage Lace, Delightful, Moon on Their Wings, Cobblestone, City Lights, Dreamlight, String of Lights, Yule Log, Wish List, Arc de Triomphe, Belle Femme, Stiletto, Eiffel, Midnight in Paris, Champs Elysees and Party Dress. Blush in Stardust and Skyline. Luminizer in Flush and bronzer in Sun Bunny. Also full-size Better Than Sex Mascara and Melted Lipstick (w/ travel size Shadow Insurance).
Le Grand Chateau $58
Includes: Eye Shadow in Amour, Fleur, Je t’aime, Moi, Cheri, Tout Sweet, Pot Du Crème, Fifi, Le Femme, Bonjour, Merci, Oui, Le Marais, Rendezvous, Provence, Parfait, Tres Chic and Noir. Bronzer in Jolie, blush in Mademoiselle and Tres Fab, and full-size Better Than Sex mascara.
I don’t know if it’s the limited edition doll house packaging or what, but my attention is focused on this set rather than Le Grand Palais. It’s also convenient that there are three separately packaged eyeshadow palettes with their own bronzer or blush. The Too Faced description of the product says each palette makes a perfect stocking stuffer or gift, but I’d say I want to keep them all >:)
Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set & Portable Palettes ($49)
This set is only available at Ulta and includes:
- 3 removable, Amazonian clay eye & cheek palettes with 24 new, festive eye shadows and 3 exclusive blushes
- Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-In-1 Mascara
- Deluxe LipSurgence Lip Crème in Flashy (warm pink)
- Collector’s vanity storage box with pull out drawer and full size mirror
This box is a cute addition for a vanity area and it comes with a ton of great shadows and products, but it’s not realistic as a travel item… too bulky!
Dressed to the Nines Lip Surgence Lip Creme Set ($34)
Nine lip cremes with extreme color variety. I’d say these are great stocking stuffers or giveaways.
Love, Lust and Lace Front of the Line Pro Pencil Eye Set ($29)
Which of these sets do you have your eye on? My Christmas list is going to be filled with
too many eyeshadows, that’s for sure!
Until next week, XO- Ashley.
