Who doesn't love a beauty gift for the holidays? And there are so many good ones this year! I've spent the last few months attending holiday preview after holiday preview--so I've seen a ton--and these are my 12 favorites. Well, they're 12 of my favorites. I couldn't narrow it down, so I'll be doing a part two of the beauty gift guide soon!

For now, here's some fun ideas for your sister, your BFF, or (let's be honest) yourself. Enjoy!

1. Sephora Fox In The Box Sponge Set, $18. I practically cooed when I saw this at the Sephora holiday event. It's three makeup sponges in an adorable little fox box. CUTE OVERLOAD.

2. Fresh Sugar Lip Lovelies Set, $26. Fresh always has such awesome holiday gifts. I loved this one because I'm obsessed with the Sugar products (this one has a lip scrub, a lip balm, and a tinted balm), and I love the pretty Christmas-cracker packaging.

3. Elizabeth & James A Little Bit of Nirvana set, $48. Somewhat surprisingly, Mary Kate and Ashley really know how to make a fragrance! Here you get four minis--one of each of their Nirvana scents. My favorite is Nirvana Black. It's so sexy!

4. Sephora Into The Stars Palette, $49.50. I'm such a sucker for the massive makeup palettes that Sephora comes out with each year. This year's is really good! It has 130 different shades for eyes, lips, and cheeks--and costs less than $50.

5. Urban Decay Naked 4Some Set, $185. The Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette--full of gorgeous rosy, super flattering colors--is my all-time favorite palette. But they are seriously all amazing.  In this set, you get full-sized versions of all four palettes. (And it's a deal! If you bought them separately, you'd pay $216.) *FYI: If you just want the #3 palette that I love, you can find it here.

6. Real Techniques Ultimate Sponge Set, $50. Any beauty girl loves a brand new (clean!) sponge for her foundation. This set comes with 12 different versions, so she'll always have a fresh one.

7. Peter Thomas Roth Meet Your Mask Samplet Kit, $25. Peter Thomas Roth masks are legendary, (Rose Stem Cell is my fave), and this kit has six different minis, so you can try them all.

8. Drunk Elephant A Skin Story Vol 1: Hot Date, $99. Such a good gift for anyone who is into clean, more natural, but still really, really effective skincare. (Or really, anyone who just wants to have great skin! I'm not exclusive to natural skincare, by any means, but I love this brand.) The set comes with four cult products: T.L.C Frambroos Glycolic Night Serum, Beste Jelly Cleanser, Lala Retro Whipped Cream, and Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil.

9. Too Faced Pretty Little Planner, $42. There's 15 eyeshadows (ranging from brights to neutrals), a Better Than Sex mascara (really good!), and an actual agenda with stickers, all tucked into the cutest little case. It's a $198 value for less than $50. 

10. Pinrose Twirl Whirl Rollerball Trio, $24. You get three perfume rollerballs in what is perhaps the happiest, silliest, most awesome packaging of all time.

11. Diptyque 3 Candles Holiday Gift Set, $210. Yes, it's super pricey. But the candles smell amazing, and they're sooo cool-looking. (Love the black and gold designs with the pops of color on the interior!)

12. Ouai and Dyson Blown-A-Ouai Set, $399. Ugh. This is SO good. I want it for myself! You get a bunch of awesome luxe hair products from hairstylist Jen Atkin's cool-girl line Ouai, plus THE hot blowdryer from Dyson that every pro stylist uses now. (And since the Dyson dryer usually costs $399 on its own, you are getting all of the products, plus a sleek carrying case, for FREE!)
