From the Editor: Holiday Beauty Raid

Sharing is caring!

What is even better than buying gifts for others? Buying gifts for yourself, of course! Here at Carbon, we’re definitely into treating ourselves once in a while and boy do I have some awesome beauty gift deals for you. Now that it’s November and all the stores have started carrying their holiday merchandise it’s the perfect time to look for holiday gift sets! Gift sets are great because they often feature a collection of assorted products for discounted prices. Gift sets are also a wonderful way to test out new products to decide what you might buy again in the future.


1. Eyes Lips Face, also known as E.L.F., has incredible sets for insane prices. They’ve got 100 piece eyeshadow palettes for $10, five piece nail polish sets for $5, three piece eyeliner and mascara sets for $3 each. What I love about their makeup is that it’s great quality and very fashion-forward. Their colors are unique and always on trend with the rest of the beauty realm. You can pick up your own gift set at your local Target or online at

2. philosophy is another brand that features amazing gift sets. Their luxurious body products are a treat that you can enjoy year-round. Stock up now on some of these amazing beauty finds. The Fairy Godmother gift set, which includes strawberry milkshake shower gel, coconut frosting body butter and raspberry sorbet lip shine- all for $30. philosophy has this and so many more gift sets on their website and at your local Sephora.

3. MAC at Nordstrom is featuring a one-of-a-kind Nordstrom exclusive make-up kit this season. It’s the Festive Frost Face Kit which includes four eyeshadows, a lipglass, a lipstick, blush and three brushes. Anyone who knows MAC knows that their products are top quality and beautiful. This kit retails for $59.50 only at Nordstrom. This is kit is an absolute must-have for winter and for a 10 piece kit from MAC, $60 is a smokin’ deal. I suggest your hop online to to buy or run down to your local Nordstrom immediately! These are going to go fast!
