    I bought “Give me some lip” and I think it’s one of the best deals going! Sephora hit it out of the ballpark with this one. And it looks like they did with the rest of their special holiday gift sets, too. Might have to go back for “In the Glow” and “Superstars”! Nice!!!

  2. The lip and eyeliner ones look like such a great value! NEED NEED NEED! <3

  3. Oooo great feature! I think buying Glitz and Glam right now would cover all of the sparkly holiday makeup I usually buy one at a time all season!

  4. Got the Super Stars @ VIB sale. Trying these first: ExfoliKate, Stila liner, Hourglass primer, argan oil & eyeshadow.
