Of all the things to buy, we're most excited about buying beauty-related products this holiday season, from gifts for yourself to the one-year-olds you know.
To make your shopping experience easier, we keep track of the latest drops from leading department stores and find you the perfect Christmas deals.
Best Beauty Sets and Makeup Kits with Discounts
We've rounded up the top 15 beauty sets and makeup kits for the season. We're all about spreading holiday cheer, and part of that includes buying ourselves a few goodies.
1. Mario Badescu Essentials Kit, $50
The Mario Badescu Essentials Kit is the perfect gift for you, so look no further. It's got one of our all-time favorite products, the Enzyme Cleansing Gel, and you'll also love its best-selling facial spray and TikTok-viral Drying Lotion.
2. Charlotte Tilbury x Bloomingdale’s Must-Have Set, $150
Given that Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream retails for $100 when purchased separately, we're huge fans of their collaboration with Bloomingdale's. Along with her famous mascara, this stunning package also includes the wildly popular "Pillow Talk" lipstick, liner, and gloss.
3. Olaplex Bond Maintenance Set, $79 Original price $99
Get in on the action and grab the Olaplex Bond Maintenance Set for your loved one (or yourself, TBH). With Hair Perfector, the brand's wildly popular No. 4 Shampoo, and No. 5 Conditioner, you'll have salon-quality hair.
4. Sephora Favorites Makeup Must Have Set, $54 ($150 Value)
The Sephora Favorites Makeup Must Haves Set is the season's most in-demand cosmetic kit. You'll find a selection of premium goods within brands like Paula's Choice, Fenty Beauty, Urban Decay, and ILIA Beauty (the clean beauty brand you need). If you pay less than $55, it's worth it.
5. Dr. Jart + 10 Must Have Mask, $68
Now that we've tried it, we can't stop using this beauty kit. It's the perfect way to start the new year (did someone say "new year, new"?), and you'll appreciate the 10 mask options offered by Dr. Jarrett+, including its best sellers. One of the Cicapair lines.
6. Love Beauty & Planet Bath Bombs Set, original price $21 now $12
The Love Beauty & Planet Bath Bombs set is a budget-friendly alternative that costs less than $25. With six spa-like fragrances, including butter and rose, coconut water and mimosa flower, and argan oil and lavender, it's not just bomb.com. It is also beautifully packaged.
7. Laneige Sweet Dream Trio, $32
Since we've been using the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask for a full year, it only makes sense that we'd be obsessed with the company's Sweet Dream Trio. It costs less than $35 and offers three mouth-watering, hydrating options that melt on the tongue.
8. Farmacy Holiday Party Green Clean Trio, $46
Say hello to a new and better way to clean, and say goodbye to non-permanent makeup wipes: cleansing balms! There's no better alternative than the pharmacy's Green Clean, now available in three uplifting holiday party scents. It is smooth to the tip of the finger.
9. Benefits cosmetics Stamp of Beauty Holiday Set, $30
We wholeheartedly endorse the Beauty Holiday Set's Benefit Cosmetics Stamps as the ideal gift for your long-distance BFF or travel-obsessed relative. To complete, this adorable $30 set contains three best-selling products: one for your brows, one for your lashes, and one for your lips.
10. Beauty Finds by ULTA Beauty The Gift of Glowing Skin, $30
If we want one thing, we want to keep shining. With ULTA Beauty's Beauty Finds by Glowing Skin Gift Set, you can keep your skin looking as good as it can. You'll find favorites from Proactiv+ (which is great for this), First Aid Beauty, Origins, and other brands. Oh, and it's a great opportunity to try some new brands.
11. REVOLVE Beauty French Pharmacy Beauty Bag, $75
The REVOLVE Beauty French Pharmacy Beauty Bag is so cute. It's better than a raised medicine cabinet and costs $75. It is worth grabbing as it includes premium brands like Avène, Bioderma, Klorane, and more.
12. Anastasia Beverly Hills Natural & Polished Deluxe Brow Kit, $39
The Natural & Polished Deluxe Brow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills is a game changer if you (or someone you know) are serious about brows. You'll feel good about your purchase with its widely used Brow Wiz, Brow Definer, and Clear Brow Gel (one of which we use every day).
13. Too Faced Christmas Bake Shoppe Makeup Set, $54
We're at a loss for what could be more Christmassy than this Two-Faced set. It offers a variety of matte, metallic, and shimmer tones to ensure you never get tired again. If we're being completely honest, Too Faced is offering baked goods and stunning, must-have shades.
14. Amika Good Vibes Only Hydration + Repair Hair Mask Set, $39
We recommend Amica to everyone we know because it's so great! With its overnight hydration treatment, which we love to use after washing our hair every other day, the Good Vibes Only Hydration + Repair Hair Mask Set is a great deal at only $39!
15. Drunk Elephant Drunk Break: Wakeup Haul Day Kit, $98
The party doesn't start until the drunken elephant enters, so we're pretty happy that she recently released a drunken break gift set that's ideal for kickstarting (or improving) your skincare routine. It pairs perfectly with the best-selling, well-loved Protini Peptide Moisturizer.
Get excited because the year 2022 is almost over. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year has undoubtedly brought problems and pain points in spades, but one small pleasure we still enjoy is treating ourselves to new beauty products, especially when they are on sale. While Black Friday and Cyber Monday were awesome, as you may know, the deals continue long after the holidays have passed. Happy Shopping, and Merry Christmas!
