I am that annoying af person who has been secretly playing Michael Bublé’s Christmas album since October. Is that really so bad of a crime? Fucking sue me. Now that Thanksgiving is literally in three days, I can freely belt out “Jingle Bell Rock” and dress as slutty Santa anytime I wish (only slightly kidding). On a real note, the whole reason we really love the holidays is because we know we’re getting everything we’re too cheap to buy for ourselves. While that is obviously true, I love giving amazing-ass gifts almost as much receiving them. Ugh, why do I like, want to be nice to someone for absolutely no reason? AM I GOING CRAZY? Just call me Oprah. Whatever the reason, I am always scoping out the best gifts to give every main betch in my life, and what betch isn’t obsessed with makeup and anything that provides #flawless skin? Well, I’ve recently discovered absolutely fab Sephora gift sets that include all this shit, and more. They’re all limited edition, so you basically have to buy them now or you’re SOL. I’m obsessed with all of them, but here are the top sets worth grabbing for
yourself your mom, sister, or best friend to show them your true adoration.
1. SMASHBOX Drawn In. Decked out. Shadow + Highlighting Palette Set
Fuck a 2-in-1. A 3-in-1 sounds a million times better. This holiday set comes with three palettes: Spotlight, Cover Shot Ablaze, and Sultry. Together, you have three highlighter shades and 16 eyeshadow shades ranging from shimmery nudes, vampy darks, and vibrant warms. Wear alone, mix ‘em all together, or better yet, bring them all on your morning commute in case you need a touch-up at work.

If Kim Kardashian taught us anything this year, it’s that
Taylor Swift is a snake nude lips are the height of fashion. They’re also like, low-key hard to figure out. That’s why this gift set is perfect. It comes with a variety of different nudes, so you can find your perfect shade and start rocking that I-look-like-I’m-not-wearing-makeup-but-I’m-actually-wearing-so-much-makeup look, also referred to as “natural beauty.” As an added bonus, you can send a pic of this kit to any and all fuckboys who text you to “send nudes” and you’ll technically have done exactly what he asked.
