Dear Santa...

hiya dollfaces! as i was perusing SEPHORA ONINE, and making out my christmas wishlist i found some awesome sets that would brighten my christmas morning! these would also make excellent gifts for yourself or the other makeup lovers in your life.

i love gift sets because you get to try different lines and products for a smaller price... figure out what you like and then plunk down the cash for the full size. and if you ask me... many products you don't even need a full size for so the deluxe sample sizes are amazing. here's a roundup of some sets i love and am crossing my fingers that santa may bring me...


(all information can be found at sephora.com sorry if the fonts are wonky!)
