A whole beauty guide dedicated to Holiday Lip Sets you ask? Why yes! Of course! Honestly, next to skincare sets, I think lip sets are my favourite beauty gift category. Why? Well lip products don’t tend to last as long as powder products like eyeshadow palettes, highlighters, blushes etc. Given their shorter lifespan, and the fact that I never stop wanting new shades, holiday lip sets are the perfect way to indulge in a variety of lip products in mini form and not feel guilty. Oh yeah… you’re supposed to GIVE holiday gift sets. Well they happen to make great gifts too! I mean how handy are mini versions of beautiful lip products. Especially for your handbag or evening out clutch. Or even if they aren’t minis, the value of a good beauty gift set can never be undervalued. Here are some great lipstick, lip balm, and lip gloss gift sets you can give (or splurge on for yourself) this season.
