We all know this: Makeup and skin-care gifts are delightful. They come in colorful, beautiful packaging, and they feel like just the right amount of extra while actually being pretty practical. That said, the friends and family who enjoy beauty gifts the most likely already know their vitamin serums A through K, and if they’re committing to a product for six months or more, then they might want to just choose it themselves. That’s why gift sets filled with smaller-size items are so genius: They’re all about experimentation, and what beauty-lover isn’t into that? Fortunately, Sephora has stocked its shelves with some standouts this year. Here are five sets that are all too worthy of wrapping paper and a bow.
Lip-gloss lovers get five new colors in this Fenty set. It not only features the brand’s best-selling Fu$$y, but also introduces four new shimmering shades — each one a friend to all skin tones.
If glowing, flawless skin could be neatly boxed up, then it would come in this Drunk Elephant kit filled with some of the brand’s most beloved products, including B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum, D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops, and Protini Polypeptide Cream.
Just about any hair type will find itself cooperating with this mix of shine-inducing, frizz-fighting products. It includes Amika’s top-selling Polished Perfection brush, which is like a hair brush/straightener hybrid that helps moisturize as it smooths.
Refresh a friend’s brush collection with this 10-piece set that’s ready to contour, highlight, and create on-trend looks. Plus, all the brushes roll up easily in a faux-leather bag, making it travel-ready.
Taking design cues from the disco era, this glittery set features a hydrating lip balm and mini blush. Choose from a shimmery coral, dusty rose, and peachy-pink — that last one being best the NARS cult-favorite shade Orgasm.
