Best Lipstick, Lipgloss, and Holiday Lip Sets to Haul

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

When it comes to make I think everyone has a thing. Some of us like huge eyeshadow palettes, others are obsessed with blush, and of course, we have those people that love a good lipstick! I have a friend who has dozens and dozens of only red lipstick. She’s obsessed with red lipstick! It’s odd for me because I’m more of an eyeshadow palette kind of girl and I can’t picture myself collecting a ton of lipsticks!

But, like any good makeup junkie, I do have my favorite formulas.

Since Sephora’s Holiday 20% Off Event kicks off again tomorrow I rounded up some of the best lipsticks, lipglosses, and Holiday Lip Sets I think are worth a haul!

Hope some of your favs are on my list!

Bite Beauty Astrology By Bite Mini Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($60 after discount)
13 mini shades of Amuse Bousche Lipstick representing each of the signs of the Zodiac!

Stila With Flying Colors Mini Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set ($31 after discount)
Stila’s All Day Liquid Lipstick is one of the few long-wearing lipstick formulas I actually like! Creamy, long-wearing, and pigmented these are very comfortable on my lips without being drying and this set gets you six mini shades to try out!

Buxom Party All Night Mini Lip Plumping Set ($39 after discount)
I think Buxom always does a great job packaging up their fan favorite Plumping Lipglosses for the Holidays this one contains 4 Full-On Plumping Lip Creams, 4 Full-On Plumping Lip Polishes, and 4 Plumpline Lip Liners! It even has a Masquerade Eye Veil too!

Too Faced The Sweet Smell of Christmas Mini Melted Liquid Lipstick Set ($20 after discount)
One of Too Faced’s more popular Holiday Sets this year was this one! It seems like everyone purchased it and everyone raves it! Too Faced’s Melted Liquid Lipstick has a matte finish with a creamy long-wearing formula that’s quite pigmented! This set includes four mini in yummy Christmas fragrances/flavors like Sugar Cookie, Pumpkin Spice, and Hot Buttered Rum!

Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip ($54 after discount)
Indecisive? No worries Sephora has a range of five full-size lippies from and nine different deluxe-sized ones from a range of different brands like Marc Jacobs, NARS, Charlotte Tilbury, Too Faced, Bare Minerals, and more!

Hourglass Cosmetics Tinted No

Hourglass N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil ($35 after discount)
Dry lips? Get this luxurious lip treatment oil! It’s a fond fav of mine for healing dry, cracked lips, while giving them a glossy, shiny look!

Pat McGrath Lip Gloss in Flesh Fantasy ($22 after discount)
Creamy, glossy, highly pigmneted Pat’s Lipgloss formula is to due for! Need a perfect nude that won’t give you zombie lips? Get Flesh Fantasy! It’s a stunner!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ($16 after discount)
A leave on lip masks that you can use overnight for smoother, more supple lips! I keep one of these on my end table and use it most nights! It does a fab job hydrating lips and keeping them smooth!

NARS Dolce Vita Lipgloss3

NARS Dolce Vita Lip Gloss ($21 after discount)
I literally just picked up one of these last week during the sale as it’s my favorite shade of dusky rose nude! If you don’t already own it I highly recommend picking it up as Dolce Vita is a keeper shade!

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer3

Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer ($14 after discount)
If Fenty did an entire range of shades in Gloss Bomb I’d buy them all! Yummy tasting but most important glossy, with a hint of sparkle, this gloss is lightly hydrating and a pleasure to wear!

Sephora #Lipstories Lipstick ($6 after discount)
Buy ALL the Lipstories Lipstick! I love this formula! It’s cheap, cute, and the formula is creamy, pigmented, and lightly hydrating! Well worth indulging in a few shades!

Sephora Midnight Kisses #Lipstories Set ($22 after discount)
Can’t decide on a Lipstories shade? This set includes six full-size shades!

Pat Mcgrath Mini MatteTrance Trio ($20 after discount)
Need some festive Holiday lipsticks? Pat’s aren’t cheap but this mini trip includes three MatteTrance Lipsticks in Elson (blue red), Obsessed! (bright orange red), and Full Panic (bright fuchsia) for dramatic holiday lips!

Clinique Chubbette Set ($39 after discount)
Clinique is forever the pioneer of chubby lip pencils as we know them! This set includes 12 mini Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm and 8 mini Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm (including Curviest Caramel my fav shade) to add sheer color and light moisture to lips!

Rosebud Salve $6

Rosebud Salve 20% Off
My recommendations for anything and everything Smith’s and Rosebud Salve goes back ten plus years when I started Musings of a Muse and to this day it’s still my favorite multitasking balm! Use it as lip balm, to smooth brows, add loose pigment to it for a glossy blush, use it to smooth dry elbows or knees even cuticles! It’s a wonder!

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue

Tarte Quench Lip Rescue Balm $15
My very favorite hydrating lip balm! Soft, melty, glossy, this formula quenches my dry lips in great moisture (it melts easily, don’t carry it around on a hot day in your makeup bag)!

Tarte Quench Squad Hydrating Mini Lip Set $16
Having a difficult time deciding on just one!? This set includes 4 mini Quench Lip Rescues!

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick ($19 after discount)
I keep meaning to add more of these to my cart. Pigmented, slightly balmy yet creamy with a lightly hydrating formula these were a lovely formula!

What are some of your favorite lipglosses, lipsticks, or lip sets that you’ll be hauling or stocking up on tomorrow?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Excuse me. I’m notorious amongst my peers for asking questions, and then asking others, without waiting for the answers. Is the second U 20, that is over on nov 3 sets only? Two w/es back to back, requiring bank jobs. These are all excellent suggestions that can be adapted to personal preferences. I can vouch for the lipstories set, the laneige lip sleeping, and bite liquified:don’t think i’ve seen a set yet. Dolce Vita is all that, but the shade can vary, depending on the product. With DV gloss, it’s pretty mlbb on most light to med skintones/liptones. Me HO for the VLGs (Velvet lip glides, great hybrid product.)

      You confused me a little second ulta 20% off on gift sets only? Is that what you are asking?

      • kjh

        yes. the email cited sets, and I could not figure out if it was sets only. like I need to spend more at ulta.
