    1. Sephora Collection Mix & Mingle Lip Collection comes with five lipsticks and five glosses that can be mixed and matched, worn together, or alone.

    Anisha Sisodia / BuzzFeed

    Who this is perfect for: Anyone in your circle who LOVES lipstick and gloss. A true lipstick connoisseur knows that Sephora Collection comes THRU with the pigment, so this is a gift they'll be delighted to receive. You can also spread the love and put one or two in multiple stockings.

    Get it from Sephora $19 (Originally $28).

    2. Cover FX Glam & Glow Liquid Lights Set can be worn anywhere we need a little extra radiance. Cheekbones, clavicles, there are no limits!

    Who this is perfect for: Every squad has a highlight enthusiast, and this set was made for them! It comes with four gorgeous shades — Celestial, Rose Gold, Mirage and Aurora — and the drop applicator allows you to mix it into foundation or body lotions for an allover glow, or to concentrate in one area. Each shade also looks good on just about every skin tone so you can't miss with this gift!

    Get it from Sephora $29 (Originally $42).

    3. Sephora Collection Once Upon A Night Blockbuster is basically a makeup lover's holiday miracle come true with eight eyeshadows, 24 lip glosses, six blushes, six highlighters and bronzers, four brow powders, and 12 cream eyeliners!

    Who this is perfect for: The loved one who understands makeup is just as much about a feeling and a way of life as it is a look. This is for the person who GETS makeup and APPRECIATES makeup! Hopefully that person is a roommate or sibling who lives with you so that you can "borrow" it from time to time. Each compartment slides back into the compact so the whole thing, which is cutely shaped like an owl, fits nice and neat on a vanity or dresser.

    Get it from Sephora for $29 (Orignally $49).

    4. The Drybar Glitter Gang Buttercup Blow Dryer Value Kit is exclusive to Sephora, decked out with a dryer, Detox Dry Shampoo, Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizing Spray, Glitter Spritzer Sparkle Spray, a ceramic round brush, two hair ties, and a whole lotta shimmer.

    Who this is perfect for: This kit has "BLOWOUT QUEEN" written all over it!!! It has everything anyone would need to keep their blowout in tiptop shape, and it also just happens to be really pretty. The blowout queen who also loves posting shiny new things on Instagram will heart you forever.

    5. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Karan Singh Limited Edition is over 90% PITERA™, which is a fancy way of saying the formula can give you a completely radiant glow!

    Anisha Sisodia / BuzzFeed

    Who this is perfect for: The K-beauty lover in your life knows all about essence (the product; not me, silly!) and deserves such a gift for taking their skincare so seriously. The packaging is limited edition, designed by artist Karan Singh, but it's still the same SK-II formula that evens skin tone and improves texture.

    6. Briogeo Hair-O-Scopes Brightest Stars Bestsellers hydrates and revitalizes damaged hair, detoxifies and soothes the scalp and prevents future damage. In other words, it's the love of our lives.

    Anisha Sisodia / BuzzFeed

    Who this is perfect for: The person who's always like, "What's your sign?" We ALL know at least one. They'll love this horoscope-themed set of hair essentials by Briogeo because it's actually useful, and the packaging speaks to their "energy." Feel me?

    Anisha Sisodia / BuzzFeed

    Who this is perfect for: For your person who invests in quality makeup that can stand on its own without too much primping and priming. Each powder works for every skin tone, and they're buildable so that you can apply as little or as much as you want. It also comes in a chic gold compact so that your friend who loves fancy things can keep it in her clutch, which is also most likely gold.

    Anisha Sisodia / BuzzFeed

    Who this is perfect for: This is also a good gift for just about anyone who loves makeup, but especially if they're always on the go. It's light, so they can throw it in their makeup bag when traveling instead of having to tote all of their full-size eye brushes.

    Anisha Sisodia / BuzzFeed
