The Power of Beauty by Julie Bilotta – Holiday Collections Make Great Gifts! 102617

Cornwall Ontario –  If you’re looking for a perfect gift set for the upcoming holidays then you’ll be happy to know that October is when all the big cosmetics companies start releasing their collections and I know it seems a bit early to start shipping for Christmas but there’s also that demographic that loves starting early!

These also make great gifts for other occasions or if you’re simply someone who loves limited edition collections so I thought we’d go through the ones that really stand out and what will get you the most for your coins!

Kat Von D has just released an 8 piece mini everlasting liquid lipstick kit in vampy colours for 66$ this is a perfect gift for someone that’s been wanting to try a few shades or the formula but doesn’t want to buy them at 24$ which is regular price for the full size product.

There are also new shades and one exclusive to this collection specifically so this is great gift for a makeup lover or a new edition set to a collector!

For skincare Glam Glow has just released a 4 piece skin care set containing 3 travel size face masks and a full size Volcasmic moisturizer which retails at 64$ on its own so 59$ for the whole set is a steal the total value of the set 134$ and is perfect for any skincare lover!

It’s not stated as limited edition, but this set is new to Sephora.

Ciate London has released a value set containing 12 pieces from liquid lippies to bronzers and mascara and more.

This is perfect for a beginner or someone who’s been wanting to try some of their products.

With 12 pieces you could always break it up into stocking stuffers.

The kit itself is limited edition and is only available online at Sephora retailing at 72$ with a value of 168$! This one of my favourites and probably gives you the most for your money in my opinion.

I also have this in my collection so I can definitely attest to its quality. Too Faced has released the special edition Boss Lady collection and for 72$ you get 24 full sized eyeshadows with great pigmentation, a bronzer, blush and highlighter in the palette itself but wait there’s more you also get a travel sized Better then sex mascara and a liquid lipstick but it doesn’t stop there you also get a planner and a leather zip up case for all the items!

This would make for a really great gift or a new edition to your own collection. This collection is actually valued at 416$ and is perfect from beginners to pros.  It’s also great for someone starting a collection and it’s definitely a steal!

Here’s another great set at 77$ with a 540$ value. The new limited edition Treasure Box Collectors set by Tarte gives you 24 full sized eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 2 bronzers, 1 highlighter, a travel sized mascara, a full sized felt tip liner and a deluxe sample liquid lipstick.

This is a great idea for people who love collecting special edition collections or someone just starting out. It comes in a beautiful box that stores all the products mentioned.

The next one is the Best Year Ever Limited Edition Collection again by Too Faced priced at 62$ with a total value of 353$ is perfect for stalking stuffers because it gives you 3 individual palettes with 6 shadows and either a blush, bronzer or highlighter at the bottom of the palette it also comes with a mascara and a makeup bag.

You could technically make 4 gifts out of this set so it’s definitely worth checking out!

If you’re looking for something a little less expensive Too Faced also has also released Under The Kissle Toe 4 piece set of their best selling lip shades priced at 32$ with a total value of 59$ which makes for a great gift or if you’re someone who’s been wanting to try some of their lippies then this is perfect.

Sephora collection has released the Building My Portfolio 12 piece brush set for 138$ it’s valued at 370$ and is a great idea if you are looking to start a brush set or maybe you know someone who’s been wanting a new set then I would definitely give it a try.

The set itself ranges from contouring to eyeshadow brushes and everything in between to complete a full face of makeup! Buying brushes individually can cost you a pretty penny so this is the perfect time to pick up a set at a discounted price.

For any nail polish lover Ciate has released the Snow Globe Limited Edition set a 7 piece collection of 6 shades 3 of their most popular and 3 new shades exclusive to this collection and 1 nail file. This can also be broken up into stocking stuffers or great as a gift for 35$ you’re getting a pretty good deal considering a mini nail polish by Ciate will run you 10.50$ each! This one is a great gift for anyone!

Tarte has released the Rainforest Of The Sea skincare set for 12$ a total value of 28$ and gives you a 3 piece skincare set which is universal for men or women it’s also a great way to try out some of their best selling skincare products I’m a huge fan of the h2o hydrating boost face cream which is included in this set!

And last but definitely not least for anyone who loves highlighters looking for a day time natural glow or an intense highlight Benefit has released a limited edition Hello San Francisco glow set for 35$ and valued at 55$ again a great bundle that can be separated or a whole set to add to your collection!

These are just a few of the many collections available for the holidays all available at Sephora. Whether you’re playing secret Santa, buying for loved ones, buying for a birthday or adding to your own collection these definitely make for some great buys and great prices!
