    1. Fenty Beauty Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipsticks β€” Rihanna's gooorrrgggeeouuuss lip colors with just the right amount of sparkle.

    Price: $19

    Promising review: "This is the most buildable lipstick I've ever used. It is such a versatile product β€” one coat and it's a subtle gloss, several coats and it's a lipstick, one coat plus another product is a whole other effect. I can't wear normal lipstick because I'm so aware of it and it annoys me all day, but the product is so light I forget I'm wearing it." β€”Karseat

    2. Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler β€” a collection of the 17 most sought-after scents so the most indecisive person you know can try them all. It even comes with a voucher for a full-sized perfume they can trade in for *free* when they DO decide!


    Price: $65

    Promising review: "I got this set and than chose the Black Opium. I saved four dollars off of the Black Opium and basically got to try all these amazing fragrances for free!" β€”Cassadilllla

    3. Sephora Collection Avocado Hand Mask β€” nourishing sheet masks *for hands*, because parched and cracking winter palms are no joke. Plus, they're completely watertight, so you can do stuff while using 'em!

    Price: $6

    Promising review: "Easy to use & totally forgot they were on while watching TV. Took them off after 20 minutes & massaged remaining oils into my hands and lower arms & they're so soft! I'm a bartender, so my hands are always cracked and so dry in the winter. I'll be doing one of these a week from now on!!" β€”lek55911

    4. Invisibobbles I Live in Wonderland Collection β€” a set of the cult fave creaseless hair ties (in festive metallic glitter colors) that channel old-school telephone cords for a quick and painless updo.


    Price: $18

    Promising review: "I love these hair bands. They’re so much more comfortable than regular elastic bands. Love the gold colors in this set and because there are nine of them, they’ll last me through next year." β€”lec0419

    5. Beautyblender Midas Touch β€” a limited edition starter set, including a blender sponge and a travel-friendly solid cleanser, all housed in an adorable golden ornament.

    Price: $25

    Promising review: "I love this product. The Beautyblender makes my foundation go on evenly and smoothly. The small solid cleansing bar works like a charm to clean out the remaining makeup from my beauty blender. I got a smaller one in my Sephora play box in August and I use that one for blush and eye makeup. they're the best." β€”Ellabobella17

    6. Sephora Collection Face Mask Magic! Face Mask Set β€” an assortment of their best-selling sheet masks for a treat yo'self moment any time of day.

    Each mask is named after their main ingredient β€” the Orchid mask hydrates and minimizes wrinkles, the Lotus mask moisturizes and helps you look more well-rested, the Avocado mask soothes sensitive skin, and so on.

    Price: $25

    Promising review: "This is a really great deal! I absolutely love the Sephora brand sheet masks β€” they have the perfect amount of serum, so they do not drip product everywhere and are very soft and easy to use. Since they are individually $6, this is an awesome deal. And it's an adorable gift since they're packed so nicely... or just nice to get for yourself." β€”Kim888

    7. Semi Precious Shadow Palette β€” a palette of eight velvety, blendable powder eyeshadows inspired by the stars for a makeup look that's totally out of this world.

    They have a subtle metallic shimmer so your skin looks like starlight itself.

    Price: $26

    Promising review: "I've been leaning away from shimmery shades and only using mattes lately, but I got this palette as a gift and haven't stopped using it all week. The shades are very easy to work with (today I left my brushes at home and was able to get amazing payout and blending with just my finger). Very wearable shades with enough oomph if I want to be adventurous. Don't sleep on this one!!" β€”Shanley

    8. Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Bold Lip β€” a cult-fave lip color set (valued at $78!) for anyone who can just never have enough lipstick.

    Promising review: "I've tried all of these products individually and they're all great. Also, this set is 100% CRUELTY FREE!" β€”Catinbox

    9. Foreo Luna Mini 2 β€” a vibrating silicone face cleanser to remove every trace of dirt, oil, and makeup from your face in 60 seconds. That's right β€” 60 SECONDS. So obviously it would make a great gift for the laziest person you know.

    Price: $139. Available in five colors.

    Promising review: "It does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's easy to use, easy to clean, comfortable, waterproof, and holds a charge for a long time. I have sensitive skin and I find that the silicone is much gentler on my face than brush scrubbers. Plus, you don't need to buy any replacement heads like you do with the brush kind. I like the mini version because it still does what I need it to, but it's more compact. Basically, it's just a nice, simple, and well-designed tool." β€”LuckIndeed

    10. Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette β€” a completely matte collection at half the price of the regular Naked palettes, so this makes the perfect gift for anyone wanting to try out some eye makeup looks!

    Price: $27 (originally $54)

    Promising review: "This is the palette that I didn't know I needed. My husband got me this randomly and it is my absolute favorite Naked palette. I love the matte, pigmented, variety of shades and I know I will grab for this on an almost daily basis." β€”Sammjc

    11. Fenty Stunna Lip Paint β€” a 12-hour liquid lipstick you KNOW will look good on them...because it lit'rally looks good on everyone!


    Price: $24

    Promising review: "Wow. My new favorite lip color!! I ate three meals today and it stayed completely on all day. It truly is a great color for all skin tones. It's so lightweight when you wear it and also very matte. Would highly recommend!" β€”Crystal Cas

    12. Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush β€” a thermal brush that'll straighten, tame flyaways, intensify shine, and make that whole *doing your hair* thing way easier.


    Check out a BuzzFeeder's ~glowing~ review of it here!

    Price: $120

    Promising review: "I have frizzy, fine curly hair, and LOTS of it. I was so skeptical buying this, but knew that if I didn't like it I could easily return so I did! It's a game changer! It seriously takes me 20 minutes to get perfectly smooth hair, and then I use my flat iron to work out the little baby hairs that the brush can't reach and to curl it if I want to! This also just feels healthier on my hair than the flat iron all the time! It's worth it!" β€”Saritablogs

    13. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner β€” a fan-favorite smudge-free felt-tipped liner to make creating the perfect cat eye simpler than ever.

    Price: $22. Available in 11 colors.

    Promising review: "This eyeliner stays on throughout the entire day. Once I bought this, I never went back to a different liquid liner. the jet black is super dark. the pen is easy to control and the formula glides on extremely easily. I LOVE THIS EYELINER" β€”Alexxxxx

    14. Tarte Clay Face Shaping Palette β€” a kit chock-full of Tarte's cult-status Amazonian clay shadow pigments to help you sculpt and contour every part of your face, including eyelids, nose, cheeks, and brows.


    Price: $46

    Promising review: "Versatile and awesome value! Despite being paler than pale, these shades all blend so well that I am able to use every single one of them. They are extremely buttery and easy to apply, with a ton of pigment. They're also very buildable if you're going for a more defined look." β€”Fancy Temptation

    15. LancΓ΄me Merry Mascaras Set β€” a box of THREE mascaras, a fan-fave eyelash primer, and eye makeup remover, so you can give the gift of them being asked, "Are you wearing false eyelashes?"

    Price: $29.50

    Promising review: "I am a fan of the LancΓ΄me holiday eye sets every year. Since I normally purchase the full size lash primer, this set is a must. For a few $ more, you're getting three mascara minis and the travel eye makeup remover which is excellent." β€”NJgamecock

    16. Kat von D Best of Studded Kiss Lipstick Trio β€” three perfect matte lipstick shades packaged in the coolest stud-inspired tubes ever.


    Price: $36 (originally $60). Available in

    Promising review: "Seriously, this set is more than worth it. You get three FULL SIZE excellent lipsticks for the price of 1.5. Plus they're the three main staple shades you ever need. You've got Lolita: the perfect nude, Underage Red: one of the best reds on the market, and Vampira: The name just speaks for itself. I usually don't like traditional lipstick like this and almost always just use liquid lipsticks but Kat has developed such a good formula that's easy to wear." β€”GinaMaria

    14 of the individual shades are also on sale β€” grab 'em for $12 each (originally $21) each.

    17. GlamGlow The Big Wheel of Sexy β€” a collection of their most popular products, valued at almost $500! You won't even have to wrap it, because I MEAN JUST LOOK AT IT.

    It includes their top-selling products, like GravityMud Firming Treatment, Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer, ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment, plus five others!

    Price: $299

    Promising review: "This bundle is to die for. No, not because of the products (although it is hard to say that GlamGlow doesn’t have the best overall product line up for facial care) but because of the packaging. I was in no way ready for what I received in the mail. From the moment you hold the huge and amazingly designed box, you can tell you got your money’s worth. The Ferris wheel is big and is constructed of high-quality materials and it works perfectly. I cannot tell you how awesome it looks on my vanity. I have shown it to many people and everyone has the same reaction as I did when opening the box. You aren’t only paying for the products but you are paying for the unique and functional packaging and Ferris wheel product holder. I definitely do not regret spending the money, especially when the products separately are more expensive and do not come with the wheel!" β€”AcunaMatata

    18. Benefit Work Kit, Girl! Work-Day Essentials Makeup Kit β€” a set of everything they'll need in their work desk for emergency touch-ups.


    It includes their POREfessional primer, Roller Lash mascara, Hoola bronzer, and Benetint β€” their products with the biggest followings!

    Price: $32

    Promising review: "I love this. I love the little makeup bag it comes with. It feels like good quality. I would like to carry the makeup bag in my purse. I am trying out the products right now. I always wanted to try benefit products before buying the full size. So far I love the bronzer and brush. I know I love the roller lash mascara. I was always curious about the primer. And I love blushes. So this is an awesome kit." β€”Mattysgirlxo

    19. Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit β€” a palette of six metallic highlighters that, when they reflect light, slightly change colors for a totally ethereal look.

    Price: $40

    Promising review: "I'm a fairy now! This highlighter is so beautiful. I was very nervous, as I have a fair complexion, to buy this, but OH MY HEAVENS. The colors are very smooth and you can create a light as air, or deep of a tone as you want. Love love love." β€”Sabs8

    20. It's Skin Macaron Lip Balm β€” an adorable tin that'll actually keep your pout soft and hydrated... Just don't get too hungry, or you might bite right into the packaging.

    Price: $10. Available in three colors/flavors.

    Promising review: "I bought this product mostly for the packaging honestly. However I used it on a whim and IT WAS AMAZING!! There was no artificial fruit smell nor any weird chemical smell. It was also very light and moisturizing, not oily or sticky as most balms tend to be. I definitely will be buying more!" β€”Mari987

    21. And of course, an e-gift card for the perfect EXTREMELY last-minute gift β€” choose from one of their designs, or you can even customize it with a photo!
