Anyone else usually think that a gift set is a waste of money? For almost any box sets I buy, I rarely use all the products but when I buy beauty gift sets, I always get my money's worth! Find out why here!
I have found that November is the best time to buy a gift set for beauty products. It is kind of a pre-Christmas sale if you ask me. Beauty gift sets are always a better deal than buying a piece you like individually - think of it as buy 2 get one free type deals. Plus, in November the new gift sets are out just in time for the holidays. The best ones tend to go fast so don't be afraid to pull the trigger if you like something.
It is a way to try new colors that you may not have tried before. I often I go for my tried and true colors. For example, I usually stick to reds and pinks when it comes to lipsticks. I rarely try a peach or a mauve color. But with a gift set you get an array of colors to try so you can really expand your makeup color palette and extend it into new seasons. Plus, you can always use colors that may not match your skin tone as a gift for someone else for the holidays (note I do not consider this re-gifting as these are usually individually wrapped so if its unopeed they will unopened they will never know!!).
Gift sets are not just for less expensive brands. Some amazing beauty brands have their own gift sets that are 40%-50% off regular retail prices for individual items. Think brands like Nars, Tarte, Buxom, YSL and more! I have linked some of my favorite gift set deals starting under $20! Use the arrows to scroll left and right! Happy shopping.
