These Cosmetic Gift Sets Are Flying Off The Virtual Shelves
Nov 27, 2020
Make the season bright and delight the beauty lovers in your life with these curated bundles of coveted cosmetic brands.
When I was a little girl, I always looked forward to getting something colorful on Christmas morning. Not much has changed in that regard and giving and receiving new cosmetic palettes is still something I cherish.
Lipstick may not be topping the wish lists this season, but products that emphasize the eyes are always a hit, so we’ve created some alluring makeup bundles to bring a little holiday sparkle to your season.
Ultimate Eyes Duo
Do you know someone who could use a little pick-me-up? Etude House’s Play Color Eyes – Peach Farm palette proves that having a peachy outlook isn’t all that difficult. This 10-pan palette covers all the basics with mattes and shimmers in peach, rose gold, and coral. Since point makeup in Korea is all about subtle enhancement, these shades are perfect for the makeup beginner on your list as well as the seasoned veterans who appreciate workable shadows that are buildable for intensity. And since no makeup look is complete without the perfect mascara, we’ve included Eyeko’s Black Magic Mascara in carbon-black. The curved wand makes it a cinch to apply product from root to tip for a dramatic look without the need for multiple coats. Eyeko’s characteristic squeeze tube also makes it easy to get every last drop of mascara out of the tube, making it a solid value year-round.
Eye Bright Duo
The perfect neutral eye makeup look starts with an extensive eye shadow palette and an eye-opening mascara. Choose three or four complementary neutrals from the Etude House Play Color Eyes Caffeine Holic palette to create depth and dimension then finish the look with two coats of Eyeko’s Lash Alert Mascara. The palette gives you 10 workable shades, so you can vary your makeup depending on your situation. And Eyeko's mascara is infused with undetectable fibers in a botanically-enriched formula that helps lashes look long and lifted.
The Best of Paul & Joe Cosmetics
What do you get when you combine high fashion with a feline esthetic? Paul & Joe, of course! If there’s a cat lover on your holiday list, this set is simply purr-fect. It includes the bestselling Moisturizing Foundation Primer in a universal shade suited for all skin tones and is chock-full of skin plumping hyaluronic acid and Paul & Joe’s secret d’or champagne gold pearl, so your giftee’s skin will glow within seconds. Next up is the cutest Treatment Lipstick ever, complete with a kitten head bullet, ample moisturizing orange honey oil, and its own custom case. Throw in two adorable emery boards and a special cat motif GWP bag, and you’ll be the cat’s meow this year.
Global Beauty Set
Have you noticed that wearing a protective mask leaves your undereye area looking a little drier than normal? All that warm air wafting above the mask can make your peepers look pooped. This pretty set includes treatment options along with skincare for the beauty lover on your list. Innisfree’s Jeju Orchid Eye Cream plumps the fragile undereye area with hyaluronic acid while upgraded Orchid Elixir 2.0™ absorbs to a velvety finish that won’t cause concealer to crease. Create the perfect eye shadow look with Etude House’s Play Color Eyes Caffeine Holic neutral 10-pan palette, and nurture fragile lips with Paul & Joe’s Treatment Lipstick in a limited edition case.
The Stocking Stuffer Your Beauty Lover Will Adore
No matter what type of makeup gift you buy this season, pair it with a cleansing oil that not only removes point makeup and sunscreen but that also softens skin, eliminates blackheads, and keeps skin feeling soft and supple. Sekkisei’s Treatment Cleansing Oil has the prettiest packaging in the category and cuts through waterproof mascara and long-wearing lip tints like magic. Voila!
