Here at Allure, we like to take some holiday pressure off our gorgeously generous readers, and one of our favorite shopping hacks involves some of the best makeup gift sets on the market. If your calendar is already starting to fill up with winter plans that require wrapping paper, you’re not alone. Between Secret Santa with your high school friends, White Elephant with your co-workers, and an impending Christmas visit from the great aunt who reliably sends you a birthday check, you owe a couple of people a couple of things. And what better shortcut than the oh-so-convenient power of a set? We’re talking unreal deals on buzzworthy brands just now hitting the scene, as well as labels your mom has been loyal to since her senior prom. Think Bobbi Brown, Kosas, Estée Lauder, Kulfi, and more.
We included some safe bets for giftees you know less than intimately, like a Sephora Favorites set of mini mascaras your recipient can trade in for a full-sized after they figure out what they fancy. The same goes for the Estée Lauder Holiday Blockbuster Set, which has a little bit of everything. Or, for your bestie whose makeup preferences you could name in your sleep, consider the Glossier Fresh Faced Set, where you can customize with shades you know they’d love.
Without further ado, here are the 23 best makeup gift sets to browse and buy this holiday season. No matter your price point, find something you’ll love gifting and they’ll love getting. Win, win, and a few more wins for good measure.
