The Best Beauty Gift Sets for the Skincare & Makeup Lover in Your Life
It's the most wonderful time of the year — especially if you are a beauty lover. When the holidays roll around, so do all of the incredible makeup, skincare, hair, and nail gift sets. But with so many to choose from, it can be overwhelming to figure out which one you should actually gift. Luckily, many of the beauty products our SwearBy community loves are part of gift sets made especially for the holidays. We've rounded up some of our favorites, all of which will make the perfect present for the lipstick-loving, skincare-obsessed people on your list.
Xtreme Precision Eyeliner and Mascara Duo - PAT McGRATH LABS
Who wouldn’t want to get this as a gift? Pat McGrath is known for all of her makeup artistry, but there’s something about the mesmerizing eyes she creates on her models. This kit has everything you need to recreate those runway-level looks, including an eyeliner that SwearBy Editors promise will stay put all day.
The Most Wanted Set
By now, Kosas has definitely gotten on your radar. The LA-based beauty brand is beloved by everyone (SwearBy Editors included), thanks to its gorgeous products and clean formulations. One of Kosas’ best-selling products is their lipstick. This set includes three of its “most asked about” shades, which are all extremely wearable, no matter your skin tone.
The Mani System
2020 taught us how to step up our at-home mani games, but not everyone is equipped with all the tools they need. Thankfully, Olive & June has made painting your own nails easier and cuter than ever. This kit comes with everything you need — clippers, nail buffer, file, cuticle serum, clean-up brush, polish remover, and yes, the nail polishes (and top coat) that SwearBy’s editors are obsessed with.
Mario Badescu Dew It For The Glow Routine Kit
Mario Badescu has been a staple in beauty regimens for years. For many SwearBy editors, the brand’s products were part of their skincare discovery as teenagers and has continued to be a part of their routines to this day. So whether you’re looking for something to give a skincare newbie or a longtime beauty lover, this Glow Routine Kit from the brand will make the perfect holiday gift.
Glossier Limited Edition Balm Dotcom Roulette
Who couldn’t use more lip balm in their life? But unlike the others, Glossier’s Balm Dotcom will not only moisturize your dry lips, but it’ll also look really cute in an Instagram photo. This holiday gift set includes three of the brand’s cult-favorite flavors, but because it’s roulette, you won’t know what you get until you open it.
Olaplex Restore & Protect Set (5 piece)
Let’s face it — all of us have likely not been to the salon nearly as much as we would’ve liked to this year and our hair is really starting to show it. SwearBy Editors LOVE Olaplex’s products, calling it an at-home lifesaver for their damaged or color-treated hair. This set includes five different Olaplex treatments that’ll help you achieve salon-worthy, healthy hair at home.
Firmy The Day Kit - Drunk Elephant
Our SwearBy Editors are *huge* fans of Drunk Elephant, and for good reason. The super popular skincare brand makes some of our favorite products, from the Protini Cream to its C-Firma Day Serum. Lucky for us, Drunk Elephant has put together an amazing gift set that includes both of the aforementioned products, plus a few other must-haves. Gift this to the skincare lover in your life.
