You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
There are a lot of things to love about beauty sets. For one, the often cuter, tinier versions of your favorite products they include, but also how inherently giftable they are — and not just for others. They also make great gifts for yourself, especially when you consider that, a lot of times, the sets often cost less than you’d pay for their individual products (so if you buy a set with your favorite moisturizer or lip balm, you’ll likely save money on said moisturizer or lip balm). The likelihood of saving money only increases when retailers start offering such sets on sale, like Nordstrom is right now. In our regular sweep of its site, we found a bunch of discounted beauty sets (up to 41 percent off) that include lots of popular brands and their products, like Fresh lip treatments and Stila liquid eye shadows. Any would be just the thing for your favorite beauty obsessive, your sister with dry skin, or, of course, yourself.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
