So, I know the Sephora VIB Sale was this past weekend (and next weekend too!), but I ended up not getting anything because I had JUST picked up a bunch of items not too long ago from both Sephora and Ulta. Most of them are holiday sets, a few are just new collections/sets.
Honestly, the biggest thing I learned from my shopping excursion is that Ulta is THE best for picking up holiday sets. Everything I picked up ended up being from Ulta with the exception of the Becca highlighter set (see below). They have tons of items in all price ranges, and the sets are just more diverse and interesting.
So far, I can say that the Laura Geller and Smashbox are my top two in terms of value. The Laura Geller The Weekender set gives you three complete face and eye palettes, and the Smashbox set gives you five full-sized lipsticks. Each of those two sets cost less than $30.
In terms of favorites, I think the Laura Geller and Becca sets are my highest recommendations based on initial impressions. I think most people could really love and get use out of both sets, and the quality seems to really be there. Also, they are both super cute.
I will post reviews for each set/collection once I can test them all out more thoroughly.
There are definitely a few more holiday items that I want to pick up. Do you guys have anything on your wishlist? Have you already tried any of this year’s holiday releases? Let’s chat.
