BEST ULTA Gift Sets + Ideas

Officially finishing up my holiday gift guide today with a huge list of gift ideas from ULTA
I went through almost 1000 of these--my mind was practically swirling after doing research in stores and online these past two months. And the testing! 
BUT! I found only the best stuff for you to give as a gift (or purchase with your Christmas money perhaps). 
I can't wait to hear your faves!


How cute are these beauty ornaments? I wouldn't mind any of these under my tree!

Candy Cane Satin Bow Gift Set--$9.99 (Also, check in stores for their drink tumbler with these products inside)

It Cosmetics Superhero Mini Mascara--$12 (One of my FAVE mascaras. They have a moisturizer ornament too that I love--My Mama got hers early! See more of my faves from It Cosmetics here)

Bare Minerals Naughty LE Matte Lip--$18 (The one item I haven't tried but want on my own list)

Burt's Bees Mistletoe Kiss--$9.99 (They have lots of other gift sets too worth checking out)

Body Shop Merry Kiss-Mas--$24 (5 lip balms)

Body Shop Bath It Up Snowman--$14 (there's a santa one too...just pretty much all of the Body Shop gift sets are good)

Beauty Gems Lip Gloss Set--$3.33

Soap & Glory Get Into the Smooth--$12 (3 of their best body butters)


Hot Tools--I'm sharing this because it is the BEST deal: two heat styling products for the price of one. These avg around $30, but they are worth the money. AMAZING deal.

ULTA Beauty Sponges + Makeup Setting Spray--$14 (there's a set from Japonesque I recommend as well--that one comes with 2 sponges and a solid cleanser)

Essie Gel Couture Set--$18.50 (Hands down my fave gel-like polish. I can easily get a week out of these with no chips)

ULTA Lip Library--$9.99


Pur Love Your Selfie 2--$42 (Get this one or the original with mascara, lip, eyeliner, shadows and more)

Tarte Treasures--$59 (You get the pretty Tartlette palette plus liner and mascara--AMAZING value. ANY of their gift sets are good)

Stila Holiday Dreamer Duo--$9.50

Honest Beauty Jessica's Faves--$36.75

Tarte Goddess Essentials--$30 (ONLINE ONLY--but this one of the BEST deals--full size bronzer and blush--these are my 2 all-time faves from Tarte plus a mini mascara)

Bare Minerals One Hot Mama--$39

Clinique The Sweetest Thing--$39.50

Also would recommend:

  • Anything TOO FACED for their holiday collection--I mentioned them in my Sephora post already.
  • Skincare--A lot of the deals were great deals, but very expensive so I left them out OR I had already mentioned them in my Sephora post.
  • Any holiday from Tony Moly--Usually their products are very cute but gimmicky, but everything in their holiday collection is really good. Sold out mostly online, so check stores.
  • Philosophy has a bunch of cute bath sets in holiday scents.
Which of these caught your eye?

  7. I love the Essie Gel Couture line so much. I’m my mom’s manicurist and this polish stays on her nails so well. Less work for me! I got one of the Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blushes during Black Friday sales and I really like it. I love their liquid lips too so that’s a great set. The Tarte set is a steal too. I’ve recently fallen in love with that mascara. I have a 20% off coupon for Ulta that’s burning a hole in my pocket.

  8. Love all of these! That Bare Minerals matte lip is definitely on my wish list and obsessed with that Tarte palette! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
