These are usually such a good deal for people wanting to try out different products. I can never seem to buy them though because in every set there’s at least 1 or 2 products that I’ve tried and dislike or can’t use.

They’re coming out with one, but this year’s will be a mix of lipstick/gloss and matching lip liners. I think the price point is also higher this year (in the $70 range instead of the $60 range).

If you love lipstick, don’t miss Smashbox’s holiday set. The lipsticks are nice and huge, it includes their mattifier, and it all comes in a pink plexiglass case for $29. I can’t recall a better bargain in eons!

This is such a good one! I was waiting for this one because it’s perfect! The set has a nice selection of good lip products. I’m here for the Give me Bold LIps!!

I’m annoyed that they put the Nars concealer in the trending favorites kit. Yeah it might be their most popular shade, but it’s still the wrong color for most people so what are the majority of us going to do with it?

I really like the RCC but that’s not my color either. The package looks great otherwise, though.

I’m irrationally drawn to the highlighter kit though. I have no idea what is wrong with me, I have NEVER worn highlighters and whenever I try them on I don’t really like how they look, but there’s something about the names and promises that really draw me in. I, too, would like to have shimmering perfected skin!

Since I hardly finish a full size of anything, I love these sets of minis – a great way to try out different products, and take along for travel

I ordered the Glow for It set today. I love highlighters, have non of these, and will never finish a full size one in my lifetime, unless I go to work every day looking like R2D2 or The Tin Man. Win, win, win.

I just ordered the Give Me More Bold Lip set. Incidentally, I bought the Give Me some Lip set just last week on the recommendation of a YT who’s skin tone was similar to mine. But I didn’t think the nude and cool tone pink shades suited me. The NARS pencil was the same that Sephora gives in the VIB Birthday gifts and the Lancome Juicy Shaker was nothing more than a gimmicky packaged clear lip gloss. If I get anything else, I do it during the VIB sale. I’m on the fence over the LashStash. I’m up to my eyeballs in They’re Real and Better Than Sex mascara samples. So….. I mean would it kill Sephora to switch out the brands for a change? But the YSL Baby Doll is one of my favorites.
Isn’t there another lip set coming out that has lipsticks and matching liners?

I don’t think we get any of the sets at Sephora here. The sets contain quite a lot of brands that are unavailable in stores here. If our Sephora had sets like these, I’d have a real hard time chosing just one or two as most of them contain loads of interesting stuff.

I am rather disappointed. I was wowed by last year’s sets and invested in Draw the Line, Lash Stash, Superstars, Skin Wonderland, and Give Me More Lip. The sets were so epic that I did not have to buy a single mascara, blush or eyeliner till date. This year’s Lash Stash contains mostly brand repetitions from last year. The other selections are uninspired. The only set I liked is Glow For It – and I already have three of those products, so will skip. They could have made these so amazing!

Question. Do you think the Trending: Beauty’s Most Coveted set is the same as/a replacement for the Superstars kits they usually come out with every year? Or do you think they’ll also come out with a Superstars kit in addition? I kind of doubt it – they’re both the same price point.

I disappointingly find that this year will not have a Superstar kit again. So I think the Beauty’s Most Coveted is the replacement. Last year’s Superstar kit was $99, though. The Coveted kit is $75 instead.

I found it in my local Sephora. They restock on fridays I think, and I was told you’ll find it in a freestanding Sephora instead of one inside Penneys. I decided to get the Trending Most Coveted set instead.
