Any frequent reader of this site will know my love for staying in-the-know when it comes to what is new on the beauty scene. Everything about the beauty industry fascinates me from the formulation of the ingredients to the marketing of the brand to the wearability and performance of the product. I am a sucker for Sephora‘s selection in general but especially their new launches and gift sets. With the holidays fast approaching, Sephora’s Holiday kits are already hitting the shelves. For this month’s Sephora haul, I wanted to preview a few of my favorite gift sets and kits available. All of these items would make great gifts for someone you love this holiday season, or a great value buy for yourself!

This rewards program gives you points for every dollar that you spend which can be redeemed for samples and more. The more you spend, the more benefits you unlock, like early access to sales, seasonal savings, free shipping, and more! If my memory serves me correctly there should be a GREAT sale on the horizon so I would sign up today if you haven’t already and start earning points towards future purchases.
Sephora Holiday Kits
Here are seven great gift sets and holiday kits that caught my eye this month at Sephora.
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Iconic Matte Revolution Lipstick Trio // A lipstick trio containing the Matte Revolution Lipstick in nude-pink Pillow Talk, berry-rose Walk of No Shame, and taupe-nude Very Victoria. I rarely wear matte lipstick shades but Charlotte Tilbury is one exception to the rule. These matte lipsticks have a long-lasting, buildable, and hydrating formula, which includes 3D glow pigments to help lips appear wider and fuller. They are also enriched with vitamin E and antioxidant lipstick tree extract to protect, soothe, and condition lips.
MAKEUP BY MARIO Master Eye Prep & Setâ„¢ // If you don’t know who Mario is, he is an award-winning makeup artist, a mastermind of all things highlighting and contouring, and the man behind Kim Kardashian’s flawless looks. He created this palette to prime, prep, conceal, and set for a flawless and long-wearing look. Each set features two shades of primer for custom blending in hues for different skin tones and a translucent powder to set the lids and diffuse shadow. This kit corrects shadow mistakes, provides a shadow base, and is perfect for touch-ups on the go.
Beautyblender Rocket To Flawless Blend & Cleanse Sponge Set // Snag this limited-edition kit for yourself or as a stocking stuffer for a makeup enthusiast in your life. The set includes three skin-perfecting beautyblender makeup sponges, two sponge and brush cleansers, and a scrub mat. The cleansers are infused with coconut and aloe to remove makeup and germs from blenders and brushes, and the silicone scrub mat helps nix the most stubborn stains.
NARS Mini Orgasm Double Duo // I buy this set from Sephora every holiday without fail. It is a mini Blush and a mini Highlighting Blush Powder in the iconic shade Orgasm. If you find yourself at Sephora looking for makeup gift sets under $25 or $30, you can’t go wrong with this!
Sol de Janeiro Carnaval Flight Set // If you’ve ever tried anything from Sol de Janerio then you are aware of the brand’s luxurious smell and hydrating products. This set includes Brazilian beauty minis to cleanse, moisturize, and scent skin with the iconic and addictive Brazilian Bum Bum Cream fragrance.
Peter Thomas Roth Full-Size Hydra Gel Eye Patch Party // My personal favorite Sephora kit is this set of gel eye patches. With the purchase of this kit, you can save over $100 off of 3 full-size packs of Peter Thomas Rothâ€˜s three bestselling Hydra-Gel Eye Patches to hydrate, soothe, and visibly firm the skin around your eyes. 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches work to visibly lift and firm the delicate eye area for a more youthful appearance, Cucumber De-ToxÂ® Hydra-Gel Eye Patches provide natural hydration and visibly reduce puffiness around the eye area, while Water DrenchÂ® Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-Gel Eye Patches drench the skin with hydration. You can use one set at a time or pick and choose based on the needs of your under eyes on any given day!
Olaplex Holiday Hair Fix Kit // The Olaplex holiday kit is back at Sephora and better than ever!!! This is so exciting as I think that Olaplex is hands-down the best hair system on the market. This complete hair-repair system dramatically improves overall hair health, strength, and texture with the patented Bond Maintenance Systemâ„¢. It works with all hair types, textures, and concerns and will leave your hair healthier than when you started. This set contains a full-size of the holy-grail, hair-repairing, pre-shampoo No. 3 Hair Perfectorâ„¢ and travel-friendly sizes of the No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner. Plus, it also contains a full-size of Olaplexâ€˜s newest hit: the highly concentrated, frizz-eliminating No.6 Bond Smoother that ensures frizz-free straight hair or curls for up to 72 hours.
