Beauty sets are an intersection of high-quality products in nice quantities. There’s no need for the beauty addict to mix and match products on her own, as the products within a collection usually work with a specific purpose in mind.
Here are the best beauty sets available in stores now:
The NARS Pro Brush set consists of eight of the softest brushes that will ever touch your face.
Makeup professionals are coveting this collection of masterful tools, which consists of every brush you need to complete a full face of makeup. Each of the eight brushes is hand-bound in Japan and eases the building and blending process for every aspect of the face. Its sleek and simple design makes the set appear extra deluxe.
The limited edition Lady in Red set by Deborah Lippmann includes all the shades of red curated to complement any skin tone.
You already know you won’t be able to use up all the contents of a full bottle of nail polish, which is why these smaller bottles by cult beauty brand Deborah Lippmann are such a steal. Not only does it provide more bang for your buck (this set of six costs P1,950), the set comes in sexy Bordeaux colors perfect for the holiday season.
L’Occitane’s Revitalizing hair line marries your essential oil obsession with hair care.
The shampoo, formulated without silicone, keeps its promise to refresh your hair, while the conditioner gently detangles and softens as a finishing step. To revive and intensely cleanse hair, the Revitalizing Fresh Cleansing Scrub removes daily build-up at the root. Infused with five essential oils, this scrub can be used as a shampoo replacement or as pre-shampoo care. Best of all, this collection comes in eco-friendly packaging for guilt-free beautiful hair.
Clarins Multi-Active Creams do wonders for fine lines.
In the daytime, the Multi-Active Jour antioxidant day cream tones the skin and smoothens it out. The cream contains Myrothamnus, a South African plant that miraculously survives during the dry season, and translates into skin care by absorbing the effects of daily stress. The star of this set is the Multi-Active Nuit cream since it’s during our snoozes that the skin fights the damage caused by stress by producing melatonin. The Nuit cream contains ginger lily extracts, which studies prove stimulate the production of collagen and help correct appearance of fine lines. The relaxing aromas and lightweight feel add to its plus factors.
Chanel Les Beiges just released three new products to help recreate that "natural" healthy glow.
That natural healthy glow is seldom natural. The sought-after glimmer comes from a natural palette of colors that Les Beiges lines up in its Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette, Gel Touch Foundation, and Sheer Colour Stick. The foundation neatly comes in 10 different shades to cater to a wide range of skin tones, while the stick comes in two neutral colors.
The Award Winning Skincare Kit from Neal’s Yard lets you try out the brand’s bestsellers without having to commit to large amounts.
If you have trouble choosing which Neal’s Yard skincare favorites to go for, this is the option that provides a trial of its best offerings. The set gives you just enough to last about 10 to 14 days and it comes in a compact canvas bag that makes it suitable for two-week trips. Inside the bag is the Wild Rose Beauty Balm, White Tea Facial Mist, Beauty Sleep Concentrate, White Tea Facial Mask. Aside from this one, Neal’s Yard conveniently offers four other beauty kits ideal for each skin type.
Skincare first-timers who want to invest in high-quality products would be wise to go for Perricone MD’s H2 Energy Complex.
Those late to the skincare party who are starting in their 30s and 40s can still repair all the damage done by sun exposure, sleepless nights, and stress by giving it a boost of hydrogen. The H2 Elemental line is powered by hydrogen and promises to restore the skin back to its original radiance. Begin with the Firming Foam Mask (only to be used twice a week), and then gently pat on the De-Puffing Eye Gel along the eye contour. For dehydrated skin, layer the Hydrating Cloud Cream over the Hydrating Booster Serum every morning and night.
For the past five years, skincare, makeup, and fragrance devotees have flocked to the launch party of Rustan’s Beauty Addict, where for one night, the Rustan’s Beauty Source counters are transformed into a beauty wonderland, where games and prizes are up for grabs. The counters of brands M.A.C., NARS, and Laura Mercier each had something in store for their makeup lovers.
It was a fun-filled night of live music, booth displays, and raffle prizes, but the real treat is that the Beauty Addict season extends beyond that single night and offers exclusive promos and rewards for cardholders. All Beauty Addict members accumulate points from every purchase, which they can use to redeem special gifts.
