I love makeup value sets, but sometimes it’s debatable how much a set is truly worth buying. Makeup has become such a powerhouse industry and prices are constantly going up. I thought it would be fun to see what I could find on Sephora’s website that was under $25.00CAD (more or less under $20.00USD). Some items included here are on sale for Black Friday, but I think they’re worth mentioning. Let’s dive into the deals!
It’s that time of year yet again! The Sephora VIB holiday sale is upon us. I can’t believe it’s already November, it feels like it’s been a blink since it was 2019. Last year, I skipped the VIB sale altogether because there were so few products that peaked my interest. This year I’ve been very intrigued by many of the holiday collections brands have released. It makes for quite the dilemma when there’s so much beautiful holiday makeup. I definitely can’t buy everything I want, so let’s narrow down the list to the Top 5 Wish List items I’m considering.
There are few things I enjoy more than a well put together Sephora Favorites set. When these sets are done well the value for money is fantastic. The latest version of the “Makeup Must Haves” offers a wide range of products from top brands like Nars, Huda Beauty and Urban Decay. I already love some of the items included in this set and the others I was very keen to try. Plus, 4 out of the 8 items included are full size. Let’s find out if this set is a truly great value.
Urban Decay never fails to grab my attention with their eyeshadow palettes. Lately, I’ve been trying to add functional palettes with lower shade counts to my collection. For that reason, I was beyond pumped when I saw the On The Run palettes announced. I had a hard time choosing which of the three new On the Run palettes to pick up – (I wanted them all). In the end, the rust and rose tones were speaking to me so I settled on Shortcut.
Introducing the Wandress Chill palette from Wander Beauty. Just looking at this palette gives me cool, winter vibes. The majestic mountain range on the cover of Wandress Chill looks as pretty and serene as the shades inside. This is my first purchase from Wander Beauty – the brand name alone caught my eye as a serial traveller. I thought I would give this enchanting, travel inspired brand a shot.
I was meandering around in my local Sephora when I noticed a value set I hadn’t seen online yet – the ABH Ride or Die Brow Duo set. I’ve always wanted to try out Anastasia brow products but I couldn’t convince to buy something my plethora of brown eyeshadows and an angled brush could do. So when I eyed this set at only a $33.00 CAD price-tag – I was on it like glitter on glue!
Urban Decay’s Naked Petite Heat has completed my Naked Basics collection! This little fireball was on sale at Sephora for 50% a few weeks back and I decided to pick it up. Who can resist an Urban Decay palette priced at only $18.00 CAD – I certainly can’t. This mini Naked Heat is packed with shades to support any warm, fiery eye look.
bareMinerals Ethereal Nudes is a 6 piece set featuring a variety of neutral shades and finishes. This is my first experience with bareMinerals lip products and I gotta say first times a charm with this set! I love the variety this set provides while keeping all the shades everyday wear friendly. Most lip sets include at least one bold shade I’ll never wear so I was happy Ethereal Nudes keeps it all neutral. 💄
