The Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Sephora Holiday Gift Sets are Here!

Nothing, and I mean nothing, gets my booty down to Sephora faster than when the holiday gift sets start rolling out. Oh, how I live for those little boxes of goodies, filled to the brim with sample (and sometimes full!) sizes of the latest and greatest products out there! I hit the Sephora website last night to pick out my top choices in their "giftopia" section (dying over their graphics and taglines for it, check out the website fo sho) to maybe make it a bit easier on you when it comes to narrowing down your selections. If you want to narrow things down that is. Because by all means, if you want a free-for-all beauty buying sesh, you have my blessing. 






1. Clarisonic Mia2 Detox Set
$204 Value for $150

By now we all know that everyone out there worships at the alter of their Clarisonic. I have yet to buy one. To be honest I wish I could try one out for a few weeks before making the investment, because the idea of taking an electronic brush to my face just gives me the heebies for some reason. So I would love to see firsthand what the results can be from putting myself through that nightly ritual. In the mean time, I still recommend checking this set out. The Clarisonic Mia2 comes with sample sizes of Dr. Jart+ Detox BB Beauty Balm, Boscia Detoxifying Cleanser, Dr. Brant pore no more pore refiner, and Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. Just think of all the detoxing you are going to want to do after the gluttony of the holidays! This set sounds like the perfect one to usher in the new year with.

2. Nest Eau de Parfum Coffret
$38

I think it is safe to say that is fancy for "fragrance set" right? I've blogged about my intrigue for Nest's "Amazon Lily" fragrance before here, and a .25 oz sample comes in this set. Along with four other fragrances: "Midnight Fleur", "Passiflora", "White Sandalwood", and "Dahlia and Vines". With such exotic names and beautiful packaging, these make a great indulgent gift!

3. Josie Maran "Escape to Morocco Holiday Hair & Body Beautifiers" Set
$68 Value for $39

A great starter set to get you into Josie Maran's "Luxury with a conscience" brand. This set features six samples of her best-selling argan oil infused products for face, hair and body: Argan Cleansing Oil, Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil, Argan Oil Hair Serum, 100% Pure Argan Oil (the cult classic), Whipped Argan Oil Hand Cream in Vanilla Apricot (this stuff smells di-vine!), Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Vanilla Apricot. There's a whole lotta argan going on in this set!! Get excited folks!

4. Sephora Favorites Super Stars
$280 Value for $75

This 12 piece set features a curated collection of Sephora's best-selling products. There are several different Sephora Favorites collections (like all lipgloss, all mascara, etc) but I like this one the best because it has a well-rounded assortment of products. This set includes: Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in "Cleopatra in New York" (a gorgeous black speckled with gold), Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil, Nars Blushing Duo in Orgasm and Laguna, Nars Lipstick in Dolce Vita, Origins GinZing Eye Cream, Smashbox BB Cream, Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, Too faced "Better than False Lashes" Mascara and base coat, Too Faced Flexistrecth nylon fibers (ok, lost me on that one), Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin and Mushroom AND Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Rollerball. Whew, are you still with me after all of that? Who wouldn't want to dig into all those goodies!? Hey men out there, if you want to impress your lady, buy her this set.

5. Fresh Sugar Treasures Set
$78 Value for $50

Sugar lip treatments are like swiping a little bit of heaven on your lips. Unbelievably soft and silky, with the most subtly feminine scents and tints that perfectly pout your lips. Not to mention formulated without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. This set of six scented lip treatments and one sugar shine treatment is a wonderful investment to make for your kisser.


6. Clinique Black Honey Beauty Set
$35 Value for $25

Clinique Black Honey lipstick is yet another cult classic that comes in holiday gift giving form. This fun little set includes the lippy, a lipgloss, and nail polish in the flattering and seasonal appropriate shade, with a mascara thrown in for good measure. A can't beat it for the price situation!

A word to the wise: if you see a set you can't live without, snatch it up now, as they have a tendency to sell out!

I'd love to hear from you if you get as excited as I do by the holiday gift sets at Sephora! What are your favorites and what would you like to gift (or treat yourself to) this year? Let me know in the comments!
