With all due respect to preserving holiday magic, when it comes to the festive season, moms are behind it all. Between hosting, decking the house with dazzling decor, and crossing off every last item on the kids’ gift lists, the holidays are special because of moms. So when you’re feeling extra exhausted this time of year, know there’s a reason why — and we see you. And, eventually, so will your kids, even if that’s years from now.
With all of that said, treating yourself has never been more relevant. That’s why we selected eleven of our favorite gift sets from e.l.f. to make us feel polished, put together, glamorous, and more like ourselves (even when we feel anything but). From a nourishing skin-care set to a giant lip gloss vault, these indulgent picks will make you feel cared for during a season you’re caring for everyone else on overtime. Now scroll on and start adding them to the top of your list.
Lip Oil Obsessed Bundle
We already know you appreciate a product that multitasks, and believe us when we say these lip oils work overtime. You get all the nourishing benefits of a lip balm thanks to ingredients like squalane in addition to apricot, avocado, and jojoba oils. Plus, the sheer tint and high-shine finish mirrors that of a lip gloss. Unlike most other pre-boxed sets, this one lets you select exactly which shades suit you.
Camo Liquid Blush
The tiniest dot of this highly-pigmented blush goes a long way, and the lightweight formula — packed with soothing, hydrating hyaluronic acid and rose flower water — glides on and blends out like a dream. You’ll get rich color payoff with a soft, dewy finish (which btw, is rare for high-pigment color) that lasts for hours on end.
Holy Hydration! Bundle
Good, simple hydrators are often underrated, and the formulas in this one feature gold-standard ingredients including hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and peptides to moisturize, refresh the complexion, and reinforce the skin’s moisture barrier. Inside you’ll find full-size versions of e.l.f.’s bestselling Holy Hydration Melting Cleansing Balm, Daily Cleanser, Lip Mask, and Face Cream — plus, their Hydrating Booster Drops for a noticeably softer, more plump complexion.
OMG Glam Bundle
Consider your holiday makeup look set with this six-piece bundle that eliminates the guesswork. It features everything you need for a complete, glamorous look, with makeup for your eyes, lips, and face. We especially love the O Face Satin Lipstick and the shimmery Bite Size eyeshadow palette — both of which you can select your own colorway of — for a party-ready finish.
Naughty & Ice Lip Gloss Vault
When it comes to lip gloss, more is more, which is why this wardrobe of glosses for your lips makes the perfect gift to yourself. You’ll get six color-rich glosses with reflective finishes, plus four plumping glosses — all designed to wear alone or together.
Glow All Out – Halo Glow Bundle
A glowy complexion is the foundation of any good makeup look — whether you choose to layer on color or keep things natural. With six customizable essentials from the Halo Glow line including their Setting Powder, Powder Puff, viral Liquid Filter, Glow Contour, Blush, and Highlighter Wands, you’ll look dewy in a pinch. As a mom, you can def appreciate a time-conscious look.
Camo Collection Satin Finish Kit
If you prefer a more matte look, these four face essentials will get you there seamlessly — no pun intended. Apply the color corrector, concealer, and CC cream with the makeup sponge to neutralize blemishes and even out your complexion, leaving it with a velvety finish.
Halo Glow Highlight Beauty Wand
Just a swipe or two of this liquid highlighter will make skin look glazed, glowy, and well-rested, even when you feel anything but. Swipe over cheekbones, lids, the bridge of your nose, or anywhere you want to attract the light.
Embellished 9-Piece Brush Set
A good brush set makes applying makeup easier and delivers a flawless finish every time. This pro-quality set contains nine (!!) for eyes, face, and lips to achieve every kind of look with liquid or powder products.
Glossy Lip Stain
This gift for your lips contains everything you want from a lip color and nothing you don’t: You get a long lasting, transfer-proof wash of color with a shiny finish, but none of the drying after-effects. Plus, we love the nice variety of red and neutral tones perfect for the holiday and NYE circuit.
No Budge Cream Eyeshadow
This primer, shadow, and liner in one means you can skip multiple steps in the morning — leaving you more time for you. We love to swipe the shadow over lids with our fingertips, then go in with a slanted brush to trace our lash lines.
