Sephora Favorites In The Glow Set
Why You'll Love it: If you love blush/bronzers & are looking to try more then this set is definitely for you. I so rarely hit pan due to my vast hoarding abilities so having minis of some I'd love to own is awesome. I'm fair so I didn't know how much I would use Laguna Beach from NARS so this mini will let me know! I also haven't been able to pull the trigger on the TARTE Stain so this is perfect. For the items I DO have in a full size, these are the PERFECT size to travel with!
This set contains: 
- 0.13 oz Benefit High Beam
- 0.08 oz Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder
- 0.17 oz Tarte Natural Cheek Stain in Flush
- 0.07 oz Stila Convertible Color in Peony
- 0.11 oz Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Splendor
- 0.106 oz Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Spotlight
- 0.02 oz bareMinerals All Over Face Color in Pure Radiance
- 0.14 oz Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic
- 0.08 oz Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip
Why You'll Love it: If you love lip products, this is a great little set. I personally wanted the TARTE lip tint in Hope anyway so this was a steal for me! The only issue I have with this set? It is definitely geared to lighter skin tones. I made sure & checked the comments on Sephora & they agreed! These are perfect shades for me although they are all kind of in the same color family or somewhat sheer.
This set contains:
- 0.08 oz Fresh Sugar Rosé’ Tinted Lip Treatment (sheer berry rose)
- 0.12 oz Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Child (sheer nude)
- 0.1 oz Bite Beauty Lip Shine in Vintage (sheer mauve)
- 0.1 oz Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Baby Doll (soft pink shimmer)
- 0.1 oz Tarte LipSurgence™ Natural Matte Lip Tint in Hope (warm rose)
- 0.5 oz Sephora Collection Glossy Gloss in Precious Pink (very sheer pink with iridescent shimmer)

Sephora Favorites Glitz And Glam Party Sampler
Why You'll Love it: Besides the NARS Body Glow being super weird (& Sephora wouldn't replace it unless I sent everything back....) this set is fantastic. I love the Stila eyeliners & Starfish is great. The bag is a nice side & not glittery so it won't shed everywhere. I love the Laura Mercier Baked Eyeshadow...it is tiny but beautiful foiled especially. The only I haven't tried is the mascara yet but everything else is fab!

This set contains: 
- 0.09 oz Stila Duo Shimmer Powder in Kitten
- 0.018 oz Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color - Wet/Dry in Black Karat
- 0.02 oz bareMinerals Eyecolor in Good Fortune
- 0.125 oz SEPHORA by OPI Nail Colour in Looks Like Rain Dear
- 0.11 oz Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara in Black
- 1 oz Nars Body Glow
- 0.17 oz Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre Gold
- 0.15 oz Bare Escentuals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Trail Blazer
- 0.01 oz Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Starfish

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro's Picks Lip Tar Set
Why You'll Love it: This was an AMAZING deal. Even without the 20% off, you pay only $49 for 5 lip tars plus a lip brush, normally a $98 value. You get a decent variety while still getting some fun shades. Believe it or not...these are my FIRST lip tars....right? How crazy am I? I am super impressed & plan to review each shade for you guys.
This set contains:
- 5 x 0.33 oz Lip Tar in Pretty Boy (super-rich fuchsia), Melange (terracotta neutral), Vintage (deep burgundy), Stalker (true blue based red), Grandma (classic coral) + a Lip brush

I picked 3 fragrance samples I had actually smelled before. The only one I'm not lusting after is the Justin Bieber but it honestly isn't bad. If you have seen the packaging on the bottle though...it is ridiculous. Zero interest in that. I LOVE the DKNY Be Delicious fragrance & already own it. Perfect for my purse. I actually prefer the new, red bottle fragrance from Taylor Swift but this one is nice as well. I'm still contemplating pulling the trigger on the red bottle though.

There we go! I love everything I got & am picking up my full size fragrance tomorrow. I am totally in love with the lip tars now. I'm prepared to be broke. Did you get anything at the Sephora Friends & Family Sale? Anything you've been checking into for the holidays?
