My Favorite Gift Sets to Haul During the Sephora Holiday 2019 Bonus Event

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

It’s today! It’s today! The Sephora Holiday 2019 Bonus Event starts today at for Rouge Member! Use promo code HOLIDAYSAVE to get 20% Off your total order! Wahooooo! Who’s shopping? I have a few things on my wish list but I’m mostly stocking up on skincare staples at the moment and perhaps some gifts.

This event is always a great one because certain luxury brands and skincare aren’t commonly on sale (Dior, Guerlain, etc..) at such a major discount. Even during the Neiman Marcus Beauty Event there was only 15% off but as a Rouge Member getting 20% is even better in my humble opinion. I know many of you are Ulta shoppers (I am too!) but I have to admit that 20% off at Sephora is still a big deal to me as many brands I do enjoy aren’t available at Ulta. I took advantage of Ulta’s 20% Off but I still have quite a few items I want from Sephora as well.

I always create gift guides around this time of the year or share my thoughts on products I think are a good value. I thought I’d take a look at a few gift sets this year as some are definitely very nice and worth hauling!

Drunk Elephant The Trunk 3.0 $360 After Discount
Here she is! The amazing, the incredible, the super Drunk Elephant Vault! This year’s vault comes with a mini fridge to keep all your skincare fresh and cool! I can see this selling out fast as it includes 12 full-size Drunk Elephant Skincare products along with the mini fridge! It’s $450 but after the discount it is $360 leaving you with over $600 of skincare to enjoy. Quite the deal and a good pick for anyone trying the brand for the first time, stocking up on staples, or wanting to revamp their current skincare routine!

Kopari Kiss of Coco $16 After Discount
I actually love the Coconut Lip Love formula and use it quite often! It’s shiny, tastes like natural coconut, and leaves lips pleasantly moist! This set contains two full-size Coconut Lip Glossy shades in Birthday Suit (nude shimmer) and Sangria (sheer red wine). The glosses are typically $16 each so after your discount it’s like buying one and getting 1 free!

Belif Ho-Ho-Holiday Kit $18 After Discount
I’m actually about to stock up on some of my favorite Belief products as they help my dry skin get through the Winter. If you haven’t tried the brand before this inexpensive little set is a god way to do so! It includes minis of some of my favorite products including Moisturizing Eye Bomb, The True Cream Aqua Bomb, Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask, Hungarian Water Essence, and Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser. Such a great way to experience some of Belif’s skincare!

Fenty Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set $33 After Discount
I’m a fond fan of Gloss Bomb (I’m wearing the original in my image below) and I’m always hoping for new shades to enjoy! This Holiday season I got my wish list because this set five shade and four are new to this set! This feels like a set that might sell out fast so I do recommend snagging it as soon as the sale starts to avoid FOMO!

Shades: Pretty Please (shimmering fuchsia, Fu$$Y (shimmering pink), Confetti (shimmering iridescent opal), Hot Chocolit (shimmering rich brown), Cheeky (shimmering bright red-orange)

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Moon Advent Calendar Vault $160 After Discount
If you’re still new to CT Beauty this is a perfect pick for you! I purchase this for myself every year! It’s one of those “Treat Yourself” type of presents. It contains both full-size and deluxe sizes of some of Charlotte’s bestselling skincare and making! If you haven’t yet tried CT this is a good starter set!

Charlotte Tilbury Gift of Magic Skin Mini Set $60 After Discount
This is another set that tends to sell out fast and one I’ve recommended in the past. I am not a fan of Charlotte’s Magic Cream! However, I am a massive fan of her highly moisturizing Magic Night Rescue Cream and Magic Eye Cream! Both are intensely moisturizing and ideal for drier skin. This set includes all three of her Magic Cream formulas in 0.5 oz sizes. A great way to try them before committing to the more expensive full sizes!

NUDESTIX Rose Gold Palette $47 After Discount
I admit I didn’t wait to purchase this! I got it when it launched at Sephora and I don’t regret it. It contains six full-size Nudestix Eye Crayons in gorgeous golds, nudes, and peaches for easy and quick eye looks. These are creamy, easy to apply, and they make life so much easier when you need to get a quick yet elegant eye look down!

Farmacy Sweet Greens Limited Edition Holiday Set $35 After Discount
I know I’m not the only Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm out there! This set contains a full-size plus a few deluxe extras Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer which is a lovely gel moisturizer that hydrates my drier skin quite well and Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask!

L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar $51 After Discount

This beautiful collection features 24 skincare and beauty picks from L’Occitane for your face, body, and bath all in deluxe sizes of 1 oz or more! Below are some fun photos of the a calendar I featured in a review from the past just so you can see how delightful this calendar is!

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Carnaval Getaway Set $20
If you’ve never experienced the joys of Sol De Janeiro’s amazing body cream and fragrance mist get this set. My god is smells like tropical nirvana! The fragrance mist is really, really weak on my body! I can spray an entire bottle on myself and within an hour I can’t smell a damn thing but if I layer I get way better throw. This set is the perfecting layer trio as it includes Bum Bum Cream, mist, and shower gel so you can smell like the tropics all through winter!

I’m looking forward to hearing what gift sets you purchased during the sale!

Do share them!

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‘.

    Awesome recommendations! I’d love to try the Nudestix, but have a concern. Can they be sharpened? Or do they twist up at all?

      • Tara

        Oh great! Is there a sharpener you like to use with these? I might as well add it to the list…LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Tara

            Thanks for the info! I bet I’ll love it….You can’t go wrong with anything rose gold so I’m snagging it! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Isabella Muse

            Oh my pleasure! I don’t have much time at the moment to go to the PO but if you can wait I have sharpeners if you want me to send one! New, of course! I just have them laying around from past sets ;-D

        • Tara

          Oh my goodness, really?! You are an ANGEL! That’s so kind of you to offer and I would be so grateful. Thank you sooooo much. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d recommend any of the skin care sets by Herbivore! I have so many HGs from them, and the sets are a great way to try stuff. The facial oil trio is a really good deal.
