2019 edit – thanks for stopping by! I recently released a Holiday Magazine which includes 12 gift guides to cover everyone on your shopping list. Enjoy Xo
Hi guys! Today we’re chatting holiday beauty gift sets. The fun thing here is that while beauty sets are a great gift as a whole, you can also grab them to split up into stocking stuffers! Sephora has so many great sets right now so I grabbed a few to test out and use many as gifts for my loved ones as well. So whether you’re looking to cross people off your own list or looking to give your boyfriend some ideas for you, hehe, today’s post is for you!

ONE // STILA STAY ALL DAY LIQUID LIPSTICK SET, $45 [$96 value]
For the girly girl in your life, this set is perfect! It comes with eight different color options and two are a gorgeous shimmery, holiday-esque colors. The shimmery ones are seriously to die for. I’ve been sharing them both on my IG stories all the time. The one I’m applying here is the shimmery Baci shimmer tube.
There is also a set for $20 that offers three essential lip colors that are cult favorites – Baci, Patina and Bacca. All three of these hues are universally flattering for any skin tone. Mini tubes are a great way for your sister or bestie to test lots of colors. Who actually goes through an entire tube of lipstick anyway?TWO // FRESH NOURISHED LIPS DUO, $19 [$24 value]
This is the perfect gift to have on hand for secret santa parties or any other event where you need a gift on a whim! Once you try Sugar chapsticks, you can’t go back to anything else and since Fresh has a great brand reputation, you really can’t go wrong gifting this to a coworker, stuffing it in your mom’s stocking or surprising your bestie! THREE // LIVING PROOF DRY SHAMPOO SET, $22 [$34 value]
While this awesome set keeps going in and out of stock, hopefully you can get your hands on it! For the price of one full size Living Proof dry shampoo, you can nab a travel size too. This dry shampoo has been my favorite hair “treat” for years because it not only sucks the oils of our roots in between washes, it actually cleans your hair. Most dry shampoos are just a bandaid to help maintain your hair in between shampooing, but this one is different. It’s powered by a patented hair molecule and triple-action cleaning technology that absorbs and removes oil, sweat, and odor. I always pack it while traveling because sometimes you just feel off when you’re out of your normal routine and this makes me feel clean and put together.
When Living Proof launched this product from their Perfect Hair Day collection, I was able to attend their headquarters in Cambridge to get a sneak peak at the product and the research that went into it. After getting a goodie bag full of products to test, I immediately tested the dry shampoo. I sprayed it on at 6AM before work. I remember that S walked in at 6PM and he said “what smells so good?”. It was my HAIR!! 12 hours later!TULA PARTY PREP SET, $44 with code ‘MINDYHOLIDAY’ [$93 value]
You guys know the love for Tula is strong in this household. When we were at the Patriots game a few weeks ago, S and I saw a license plate that said “ILUVPATS”. I told him that would be his dream license plate and his rebuttal said mine would state “ILUVTULA”. True, true. I love ALL Tula’s holiday sets this year, but my personal favorite has to be the party prep set because it’s a great gift for the girl that travels frequently due to the size of the bottles or it’s the perfect way to gift a fellow Tula lover new products to try out without splurging on the entire full sized bottles.
The mix of products is just too good – a bottle of their amazing exfoliating treatment mask, illuminating face serum, my go-to day and night moisturizer and two of the dual-phased treatment pads [AKA two salon worthy facials] all for only $44 for with code ‘MINDYHOLIDAY‘. You can use my code for any Tula products through the Holiday’s! Keep your eyes peeled on Instagram this week because I’m giving away two of these sets to two lucky girls!
FIVE // TARTE TREASURE BOX COLLECTIONS SET, $59 [$433 VALUE]
This set is every beauty lovers dream. Tarte has quickly become one of my go to brands because their products are highly pigmented and long wearing. This set is a value of over $433 worth of make up for $59!
The box within itself is so adorable and it’d be great for any girl that’s always on the go. She can just throw this one container into her suitcase and have her mascara, liner, liquid lipstick, highlighter, blush [one warm and one cool], bronzer, 24 different eye shadows and more in one spot.
SIX // STILA MASCARA & LIQUID LINER DUO, $25 [$45 VALUE]
I’m always asked about my lashes and dedicated a whole post to them here. I’m super picky when it comes to mascara, but I finally tried this one for myself by snagging this set. The mascara lives up to the hype and it’s even better than Too Face’s cult fave that I shared in my mascara post that I’ve used for YEARS. The liner is the best liquid liner I’ve tried as well. The applicator brush allows for a pretty and seamless line. Some applicators are too floppy and some just don’t bend enough, but this one is the perfect middle. If you’re shopping for a sister, this set is such a great gift idea. If it’s still out of stock, I’d even grab the items separately because they are SO GOOD! My little sister has lashes out of this world long and doesn’t even need to wear one coat of mascara, but I am definitely grabbing her the liner!
Since there are so many good holiday gift sets, I put together even more options for you in the collage below. It’s interactive so you can just click the item image and you’ll be brought straight to the item! Happy shopping. Xo Mindy
