Beauty- Holiday Gift Guide: Sephora Favorites In The Glow Set

Well the holidays are right around the corner and that means...time to start thinking of the perfect gift to give to your family and friends.  Allow me to take the stress off of your shoulders - I have some great gift ideas for all of those beauty loving friends and family members in your life.  

The first gift set that I have been loving is the Sephora Favorites In The Glow set. This is a great set of 9 of Sephora’s bestselling complexion enhancers, including a selection of 3 blushes, 3 bronzers, and 3 luminizers.  They come in an array of different finishes from creams to powders to liquids.

This set contains: 

- 0.13 oz Benefit High Beam
- 0.08 oz Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder
- 0.17 oz Tarte Natural Cheek Stain in Flush
- 0.07 oz Stila Convertible Color in Peony
- 0.11 oz Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Splendor
- 0.106 oz Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Spotlight
- 0.02 oz bareMinerals All Over Face Color in Pure Radiance
- 0.14 oz Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic
- 0.08 oz Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna

I love that this set is a collection of "mini" products which is great for travel but quite honestly, it gives me the opportunity to try out a bunch of products without having to pay full price for all of them.   I already have a full size of the Nars Laguna bronzer so this mini version is perfect for traveling.  I love the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzing powder for it's matte finish but also for it's yummy chocolate scent!  I love Tarte products so it goes without saying that I adore both the powder blush as well as the cheek stain.  They both are lovely colors and give the perfect flush to your cheeks.  The Lorac and Benefit High Beam are gorgeous highlighters.  I really wanted to purchase the full size of the Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc but held off...and thank goodness that I did.  The mini version is perfect for me to try and I have to say that I love using this quad as eyeshadows in addition to bronzing and highlighting.  I actually like all of the products - this is a great value set for what you get.  Keep in mind that this is a limited edition set and it sells for $45 at Sephora so get one for yourself as well as one for a gift while it's here.   Every makeup loving female is always looking for the perfect product to make their skin look radiant and glowing...find your perfect product in this limited edition set at Sephora!
