It may still be September, but at Sephora, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
The beauty retailer is already heralding the holiday season with its new limited-edition beauty gift sets — which, if history is any indication, will likely fly off the shelves well before shoppers can finish stuffing stockings.
Among this year’s just-dropped picks? Giftable bundles from both celebrity brands — like Selena Gomez’s Rare Beauty — and Hollywood standbys including Kérastase and Tatcha.
So whether you’re getting a head start on decking the halls or planning your own beauty haul, read on for 12 of our favorites from Sephora’s festive drop.
Your closet’s not the only thing that deserves a new coat this season. Color Wow’s popular Dream Coat leave-in treatment promises to make hair moisture-resistant and frizz-free.
Celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton — known for his work with stars like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Dua Lipa — serves as the brand’s global creative director and counts this TikTok-viral spray as a must-have for major moments like Lopez’s Super Bowl halftime show performance.
“RHOSLC” star Meredith Marks is also a fan, recently listing Dream Coat among her NYFW go-tos in an interview with Page Six Style.
“The Color Wow Dream Coat spray is a literal lifesaver for me … While running around going from show to show, it controls and tames my frizz so I’m always photo-ready,” she raved.
No need to pinch pennies to pick up Rare Beauty’s viral Soft Pinch Liquid Blush. Score two mini versions — plus a pair of pint-sized Positive Light Liquid Luminizer highlighters — for $20 less with this set of four.
Score a trio of haircare staples from Kérastase — a brand beloved by Meghan Markle — with this value set, including the hair oil Olivia Rodrigo once name-checked in a Vogue “Beauty Secrets” video.
A long list of stars rely on Tatcha products like the hydrating Water Cream, which popped up on the Duchess of Sussex’s vanity in Netflix’s buzzy “Harry & Meghan” docu-series.
Looking for even more from the brand? Treat your giftee to the splurge-worthy Special Edition Luxury Kiri ($334, a $450 value), shop a new hue of the Jennifer Aniston-loved The Kissu Lip Mask in Deep Wisteria ($29) or pick up the Plumping Dewy Skin Essentials Set ($87, a $124 value), which includes Selena Gomez’s favorite “yummy” face cream.
Brighten up their winter with this colorfully packaged set, which includes the cult-favorite Brazilian Bum Bum Cream beloved by stars like Dua Lipa and Hilary Duff.
For your favorite fragrance collector, consider the Cheiroso Travel Perfume Set ($34, a $40 value) and Beija Flor Jet Set ($30, a $36 value) instead.
How do you like them (caramel) apples? If your giftee is a fan of Laneige’s cult-favorite lip mask — Kendall Jenner, Brooke Shields and Kate Hudson can’t get enough of the stuff — they’ll love unwrapping it in these delicious limited-edition scents.
From supermodels to silver screen stars, plenty of famous folks swear by these peel pads. Naomi Campbell and Barbie Ferreira are both fans, while Constance Wu once told the New York Times, “If I want to be really glow-y the next day, I definitely use them.”
Brow whiz Anastasia Soare’s had a hand in perfecting the arches of Oprah, Jennifer Lopez and more — and her namesake products are equally celebrity-loved.
Karlie Kloss, Margot Robbie and Katy Perry all love Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir toning mist, with the latter telling Allure that she always carries it when traveling.
Hailey Bieber and Gwyneth Paltrow are both fans of Kosas’ clean beauty offerings, while Drew Barrymore included this hydrating gloss in an Instagram roundup of her favorite summer beauty products.
Bethenny Frankel regularly sheds light on the self-care products she loves — including candles. In 2022, she told us she gives out sets of Voluspa candles for the holidays (among other beauty favorites, of course).
Don’t get the blues from missing out on this limited-edition hue of Dyson’s Supersonic Dryer, used behind the scenes on stars like Lady Gaga and Kerry Washington.
