'Tis the season....for beauty deals!

One of the best parts of the holiday season (in my humble opinion, anyways) are the awesome beauty sets some of my favorite brands put out. YES, there are gift sets available around Mother's Day as well (score for me, since I'm a May baby) but generally speaking, those are perfume sets. Right now, most brands (from drugstore to super high-end) have their gift sets out, filled with their best, and their newest, all on the cheap.

Here are some of the best options out right now, according to moi:

1. The Tarte of Giving Collector's Set & Travel Bag. $490 value, only $59!! Um, hello that value is insane. I want this for so many reasons - that crazy adorable bag, those gorgeous shadows, that beautiful cheek stain....Snag this bad boy up, it will sell out, mark my words!

2. The Holiday Handbook by Philosophy is a trio of hand creams by Philosophy, for only $32. I love most of Philosophy's products, including their super rich, but not greasy hand creams. This would be such a sweet gift, along with a gift certificate for a manicure!
3. Drybar Blowout in a Box kit. $179.80  This one is pretty major, but wowza - who wouldn't loooooove receving it??? Chalk full of Drybar essentials (Buttercup blowdryer, round brush, styling tools and hair products!)

4. Estee Lauder's (purchase with fragrance purchase) Holiday 2013 Kit. $58.50, $375 value. SOOOOOOO much good stuff in there, and again the value is insane!! So many gorgeous colors, all in a sleek croc case. I kinda (really) want this for myself!

5. Clarisonic Mia 2 with Fresh cleanser. I am obsessed with my Clarisonic - I can honestly say that so far this has been the best investment in my skin. It cleanses your skin something like six times as well as just your hands, and it's antibacterial. This cleanser by Fresh is also awesome, and with this QVC set you can choose from tons of cute colors and prints for your Clarisonic that you can't get anywhere else. (I'm jealous!) And speaking of QVC, my husband makes fun of me all. the. time. for loving that channel/website as much as I do, but honestly they have some of the best deals (for beauty and more!)

6. Sephora Lash Stash $45, $145 value.  Perfect for mascara junkies, like yours truly. With this fun kit you get to try eleven different types of mascaras from various brands, and find your absolute favorite one.

7. Fragrance sampler. $75 (value varies) This is pretty brilliant. Fourteen different deluxe sample sizes of perfumes. Wear them, decide what you like best and then redeem a coupon in the kit for a full-size version of your favorite. The last few years I've gotten Tony the men's version. I know first-hand that these make really awesome gifts!
8. Tarte SmolderEYES set. Another Tarte set, shocker! (You guys know how much I love my tarte!!) Well, this set has my favorite eyeliners - five total, all for only $32.47

SO, with this awesome gift sets are you thinking it's better to give, or to receive? ;)
