The best buys in cosmetics holiday collections
‘Tis the season of giving, but these holiday collections have us hoping there will be some receiving involved too! Between the snowflake-covered cases and the uh-mazing values (eight lip glosses for $25!), it truly is the most wonderful time of the year — for a makeup shopping spree, that is! We’ve scoured the shelves to bring you the must-have palettes and sets for all the beauties on your list.
Lorac Eye Candy Full Face Collection $59: A guilt-free box of chocolates?! Happy holidays to us! Open up this gilded box, and instead of gourmet confections, you get six palettes cleverly camouflaged as chocolate bars. No need to resist temptation — apply to lids and lips (not hips!) and enjoy the rich assortment even more than a box of Godiva.
NYX Living in a Dream Nail Polish Set $20: Eighteen nail polishes for $20? Add it to our wish list! This uh-mazing limited edition nail polish set is filled with neutral, sparkly, and festive colors, perfect for any holiday soirée! Who needs to go to the nail salon and wait when you can give yourself one at home? Invite some girlfriends over, make some gingerbread, pop some bubbly, and have the ultimate girls’ night in! Better yet, get 20% off this polish set through Monday when you use the code FABFITFUN.
Stila Written in the Stars Eye Shadow Palette $15.13: Sparkle and shine under the stars this season at all your holiday parties. These ultra-wearable shadows can be mixed and matched to create the perfect look for every tree trimming and champagne toast. This palette is so pretty we plan to wear it long after our New Year’s resolutions have been made (and broken).
Revision Skincare Be Bright Holiday Gift Set $59: Dry, dull skin can put anyone in a Scrooge mood, but some Brightening Face Wash, Vitamin C Lotion, and Peppermint Body Scrub will take care of that! This limited edition set will exfoliate, moisturize, and brighten all skin types, so give it to anyone looking to shed last year’s skin and start the new year off right and bright!
Too Faced The Confection Collection $95: Sweeter than the sugar plum fairies themselves, this collection is the perfect gift for all those on the “nice” list. The “Shadow Bon Bons” alone were enough to light up our faces like a kid with a brand-new Xbox, but wait there’s more! A beautiful brush set, full-sized mascara, bright pink lipstick — it’s no wonder this set is worth $234! Luckily the Santa in our life is making an exception and for $95, we can all give (or get) the gift of glow.
Benefit Perk Up & Away $64: For all those who are heading home for the holidays, it’s time to Perk Up & Away! No, this limited edition set cannot prevent Aunt Betty from forcing her figgy pudding on you. But it can help you look like you’ve got the holiday cheer, even after a cross-country, red-eye flight in the middle seat. With full-sized beautifiers like best-selling Dandelion and Watt’s Up, this set makes holiday travel a jingle all the way!
Stila All is Bright Holiday Lip Glaze Set $23.48: It’s a holiday miracle! No, Brad Pitt is not neatly wrapped in a bow atop your pile of presents. But almost as thrilling, for just $25 (a $110 value) you can snag a set of Stila’s legendary lip glazes. Made up of best-sellers like Black Cherry and Sugar Plum, plus six seasonal faves only available for the holidays like Jack Frost and Joy, these pout prettifiers make the perfect stocking stuffer (if you can’t get Brad in there).
Fresh Spa Escape $50: With all the holiday craziness going on, who wouldn’t love a spa escape? But with all the caroling, cooking, and cocktailing, who has the time? Bring the peace and joy of a spa day directly to every busy beauty on your list. This dreamy set includes Seaberry Restorative Body Cream, Brown Sugar Body Polish, the cult favorite and perfect holiday treat, and the über-addictive Sugar Lip Treatment in a festive new berry tint that easily transitions from spa-ing to celebrating!
Vincent Longo Sparkle Silver Set $65: The holidays are all about the sparkle! This set, with its Wet Diamond Eyeshadows and Perfect Shine Lip Glosses, will make anyone the star of the season! The Highlighter Mascara in Flaunt Silver is perfect for a night when we want to flaunt it — NYE anyone? And the zipper case is sleek enough (and chic enough) to toss in our cutest clutch!
