Beauty Gifts Sets/Stocking Stuffers That Caught My Eye

One of my favourite things about the holidays is all the great beauty sets that come out (I love minis and think these sets are always a good way to try new things from brands without buying a full sized item!)

The Belif and Florence by Mils sets were received as PR samples

So, naturally I dig through a whole bunch of sets and pick up a few that I are exciting to me - mini size for a good price, great value, good selection of products, etc. For me, I'm most interested in getting a variety of products and so that's what I tend to look for! 

This year, I thought there was a good selection of makeup and skincare sets, but also brands mixing it up and including both makeup and skincare in the sets which is always fun! 

Makeup by Mario Mini MoistureGlow On The Go Plumping Lip Serum Duo - Bare Glow and Rose Glow ~ $33.00 CAN. A set of two mini hydrating glossy balms in bestselling shades, to visibly plump lips and deliver a dewy shine.

Okay, I know these are mini and some people don't like super small products in their sets, but these are the price of one full size lippie and they are just under. For me, this is a product I love and have already used up a full size one this year, so this is really to try two different shades! These lip serums are super glossy and hydrating and look so good on! 

Essence Cosmetics 2023 Holiday Lash Princess 4 Pack ~ $16.99 CAN. Enhance your lashes this holiday season with the essence 2023 Holiday Lash Princess 4 Pack. Featuring four mascaras from the iconic Lash Princess family, including False Lash Effect, Waterproof, Curl & Volume, and Sculpted Volume, this holiday kit has a mascara for every occasion. Packaged in custom Essence Nordic pajama-themed packaging, it's the perfect gift to treat yourself or to gift to your bestie beauty lover! 

Okay, this is one you can pick up in stores in Shoppers and this is such a great deal for 4 mascaras (literally the price of one drugstore mascara from other brands!) I'm such a fan of these formulas and they are regular $5 each, so you save a little money in this set - plus it comes in the cutest packaging!

Benefit Cosmetics Fluffin’ Festive Brows Brow Pencil, Gel, And Wax Value Set in 4 ~ $48.00 CAN. These brow essentials let you show off your holiday spirit with three different brow looks. The Gimme Brow+ Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel is a brow-volumizing tinted gel with tiny microfibers that create natural-looking fullness and definition. The Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer is a bestselling brow pencil to transform shapeless, undefined brows with a few strokes—now available in 12 shades to flatter every hair color. The Fluff Up Brow Flexible Brow-Texturizing Wax is a clear, crunch-free, creamy flex-wax that creates fluffy, full, and natural-looking brows and lasts for up to 12 hours.

Okay, this one is getting up there but honestly, I have to get myself a Benefit Brow set every year - the Precisely My Brow pencil is my most favourite brow pencil there is, plus I love the Gimme Brow. For less than the cost of those two products, you can get this whole set and another full size product making it a huge value! These are always a must for me! 

Belif Dive In Hydration Set ~ $54.00 CAN. A set of moisturizing essentials that increase the skin's hydration levels for a visible glow.

I love that Belif is available in Sephora know - if you look back 8 or 9 years of blogging, you know I used to order this moisturizer from South Korea to use it, so I'm so happy it's nice and accessible now in stores! This comes with a full size Aqua Bomb which is their hero product (and about 30 on it's own), plus a good size cleanser, toner and eye cream! This one might be a little big for a stocking stuffer but still a great gift set! 

Florence By Mills Just for You: A Few of My Favorite Things Gift Set ~ $38.00 CAN. Get ready to hear all the compliments this holiday season because it's your time to shine! This kit features the must-have skin plus color essentials for an easy, beautiful, and effortless look. Start with Floating Under The Eyes Depuffing Gel Pads to help wake up tired, puffy-looking skin. Grab Dreamy Dew Facial Moisturizer to hydrate and help control oil. Add a custom pop of color, unique to you, with True To Hue pH Adjusting Lip and Cheek Balm. Then take your glam to another level with Up A Notch Volumizing Mascara for a high-impact look. Treat yourself and unwind with a pair of Swimming Under The Eyes Brightening Gel pads to help brighten and hydrate those under the eyes! Floating Under The Eyes Depuffing Gel Pads (1 Pair)​Swimming Under The Eyes Brightening Gel Pads (1 Pair)​Dreamy Dew Oil-Free Facial Moisturizer (Travel Size) ​True To Hue pH Adjusting Lip & Cheek Balm (Deluxe Mini Size) ​Up A Notch Volumizing Mascara (Deluxe Mini Size).

This a new to me brand, so this is a good way to try a little bit of everything - skincare and make up! I love eye masks, so these will be great, plus a dewy moisturizer! Then for makeup, it comes with a ph adjusting cheek and lip balm, plus a mini mascara as well! Florence by Mills is a new brand to Shoppers, so I'm excited to give these all a try! 

What gift sets caught your this year?!
