: The Most Sought-After Gifts For Every Beauty Junkie

The hardest part of shopping for a beauty junkie is that you’ll probably want to keep the super luxurious gift sets for yourself! But really, no matter who the makeup-wearer is in you life, there’s a beauty palette or makeup set that they are going to love. In the top 10 list that follows, for example, there's a package for the super minimal skincare girl who simply wants to look well rested, as well as sparkling shadow sets for the glamazon who loves to fly above the radar. Not to mention, makeup gift sets are an excellent way to sample a company’s product range in a cost effective manner (hello, Chanel!). And sure, we won’t judge if you buy a few things for yourself.
