* 6 holiday-ready makeup sets for gifting or getting
* Limited edition kits from top beauty brands
* Try multiple products for the price of one individual item
If there’s a beauty lover on your holiday shopping list, or if the beauty lover happens to be you, the holidays are a wonderland for beauty aficionados, with plenty of gorgeously packaged, limited edition makeup set launches. For the price of a single item, take home a generous palette of glow-enhancing colors, like IT Cosmetic’s IT Girl palette, encased in a glittery, travel-friendly compact. Or for skincare buffs, sample a full Drunk Elephant cleansing and moisturizing routine. These kits are not only a great value, but they’re also a great way to test out new colors and formulas without investing in a full-sized/full-priced item.
Here, we’ve found 6 of the best limited edition makeup sets for the holidays that are sure to delight now and all through the year.
1. Ulta’s 12 Days of Beauty
Countdown the days to Christmas with Ulta’s 12 Days of Beauty plaette. Each numbered compartment opens to a product of surprise and delight. This set includes face and body glitter powders, pencil eyeliners, assorted lip products and highlighters for that holiday glow.
