Beauty sets abound this time of year, and I am a complete sucker for them. They’re almost always a really good deal—as in, you get a lot more than you typically pay for—even if you go the splurgetastic route, like with this Laura Mercier fantasia of her most iconic products.
Look closely: this (also rather splurgy) Ultimate Beauty Kit from Net a Porter is all winner, no filler.
This palette from Too Faced seems like an especially good deal: a bumper crop of eyeshadows, blushers, and bronzers, and a happy little travel-friendly tube of their stellar Better Than Sex mascara, all for just under $50.
The purchase of this selection of skin-care items from Kiehl’s benefits Feeding America.
The packaging of this Ren Skincare set is so pretty you won’t even need wrapping paper.
I would just up and die if somebody gifted me this lipstick paradise from Bite Beauty.
But I also quite like this smaller set, also from Bite Beauty, which rings in at a quite reasonable $39.
