Festive Picks: Make-Up & Nail Polish Gift Sets

I mentioned a few days back that I'm not planning on doing gift guides this year as such, but will instead be sharing some of my favourite sets in a few categories; in other words, the gift sets I'm sorely tempted to gift myself with this Christmas! You can see my skincare gift set picks here, and today I'm sharing the make-up and nail polish sets which are topping my wish list at the moment.
Festive Picks: Makeup Gift Sets
Models Own Luxe Nail Polish Collection, £10 | I will admit to having picked this set up for myself, I just couldn't resist; not only do you get four full-sized Models Own nail polishes from the Diamond Luxe collection, the set also includes nail art striping tape and a double-ended cuticle pusher, all for the price of two polishes! Shades included are 'Asscher Blue', 'Radiant Pink', 'Trillion Taupe' and 'Carat Coral'.
Soap & Glory The Perfect 10 Palette, £16 | This isn't a gift set by any stretch of the imagination and I don't know why Boots seem to think it is, but nonetheless it looks like a lovely selection of eyeshadow shades and I'd really love to find this nestled beneath the tree on Christmas morning. There is no argument to be made for me needing more eyeshadow palettes (seriously, I have way too many) but it's just so pretty. It's kind of reminiscent of the Urban Decay Naked palettes at a much more purse-friendly price point.
Urban Decay Black Magic 24/7 Double-Ended Eye Pencil Gift Set, £27 | I've heard so many good things about Urban Decay's 24/7 eye pencils that this set of eight shades is pretty irresistible. I absolutely love the look of 'LSD' and 'Tornado', which isn't available elsewhere - always a key player in increasing desirability.
Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection, £38 | I've actually never tried any Laura Mercier products but I absolutely love the look of her Caviar Sticks; I'm a fan of anything that comes in crayon form, and this set includes six beautiful shades to try out, for less than the price of two of the full-sized crayons - a bargain if ever I heard of one. Space.NK are actually currently sold out of this set, which is probably for the best as far as my bank balance is concerned...
Bobbi Brown Warm Glow Christmas Eye Palette, £59 | Okay, so the price is pretty eye-watering and again, strictly speaking this isn't really a set, but it is an absolutely delectable palette! All nine shades are absolutely beautiful and looking at it is genuinely giving me butterflies, it's just so gorgeous. The lovely faux-croc case is just the perfect finishing touch to an altogether dreamy palette. Seriously, I think I'm in love.
ArtDeco Tribal Chic Blusher Set, £25 | Again, ArtDeco isn't a brand I've tried anything from in the past, but this blusher is absolutely stunning, and the inclusion of the brush just seals the deal for me really! Seriously, how beautiful is the compact?! And the design on the blusher itself is no less gorgeous. What a beaut.
So, are any of these sets on your Christmas list this year? Which is your favourite? Any other sets you'd add? You can also check out my pick of this year's skincare gift sets, if you're interested! If anyone would like to donate any of these to an extremely worthy cause (me!), there would be no complaints at all... Just saying.
