10 Holiday makeup gift sets to cop for you, your family and your friends

Presenting: The first instalment of BURO’s 2023 Holiday Beauty Gift Guide. Shop the season’s best makeup gift sets for you and your loved ones before they’re gone!

Don’t think you’re slick: We can see you rolling your eyes. “BURO, it’s mid-October! Why are we talking about Christmas and the year-end when Halloween hasn’t even come and gone yet?”, you say.

We hear you, and we’re here to plead with you to hear us out. You need to start thinking about your holiday shopping ASAP. Why?

Need we remind you that yesterday was July?  This year is absolutely flying by, and the year’s end will be here in the blink of an eye. Unfortunately for you, time is not going to slow down just because you want to procrastinate on your holiday shopping!

Trust us—when Christmas comes around and you’re already set with your gifting, you’ll thank us. We’ll always have you covered on last-minute essentials, of course, but if you want to secure the best of the best for you and your loved ones, you’re going to have to start getting organised now.

Just picture it! If you play your cards right, this could be you and your girls when you’re exchanging gifts!

On that note, we’re here with our first beauty gift guide of the season. Ahead of the festivities, we’ve curated our favourite makeup must-haves to shop. Indeed, your beauty favourites have come through with their yearly curation sets, and we’re here to weed out the “worth it” from the worthless. Whether you’re trying to find the perfect gift for the beauty girlies in your life or you’re hoping to score some beat basics for yourself, we’ve got you covered.

Our 2023 makeup gift set edit has it all! Spice up your pout with cult favourites like Fenty’s Gloss Bombs, Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatments and Clinique’s viral Black Honey Almost Lipstick, or give it an extra pigment boost with Dior Beauty’s gorgeous limited-edition Rouge Dior kit. Alternatively, dress up your smize for the occasion with eye-defining essentials like Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Trio, Bobbi Brown’s Shadow Stick and mascara set, or Tarte’s four-piece palette set. In short, whatever your poison is, you can score it at a steal with these essential makeup gift sets.

PS: Did we mention that some of these goodies also double as ornaments? That’s right—with these beauty buys, you can deck your tree out as you restock your vanity. It’s a win-win!
