• With so many sets, palettes and limited-edition shades on offer for the holidays, it's hard not to buy up every sparkly trinket in sight. But we've sifted through this season's splashiest beauty gifts to bring your our favorite finds.

  • Bobbi Brown Twilight Pink Lip & Eye Palette ($80, bobbibrowncosmetics.com)

    "So many of my friends love makeup, but the more natural the better. I love this palette because all of the shades — the shadows and lip colors — are super wearable. Plus, for those who are a little wary to try lipstick, these are more like tinted lip balms with gorgeous pigments." —Shannon Farrell, Editorial Assistant

  • Julep Little Lights ($20, julep.com)

    "Aside from the incredibly adorable box, these polishes are so gorgeous — and spot on for the holidays. You may even have to gift this one early." —S.F.

  • Sephora Favorites Fragrance Sampler For Her ($65, sephora.com)

    "Every woman loves perfume, but it's hard to pinpoint which one she'll really appreciate. This sampling gives her a wide assortment of Sephora's best, such as Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and Daisy Marc Jacobs. Or for your commitment-phobe friend, she can switch up her scent daily." —S.F.

  • Per-fékt Beauty Touch Up & Glow ($70, perfektbeauty.com)

    "Touch-ups made easy. Perfékt's CC cream compact and cheek perfection gel combo allows you to cover up any splotches on the skin and dab color on the cheeks when you're out and about. Your busy friends will love this." —S.F.

  • Napoleon Perdis Limited Edition Empress Lip Palette ($59, bergdorfgoodman.com)

    "Buying makeup for other people is really a gamble — how do you know they'll like the colors? That's what makes gifting this palette of 12 creamy shades so genius. She can play mixologist." —Wendy Rodewald, Senior Editor

  • Diptyque Set of 10 Candles ($130, nordstrom.com)

    "Full disclosure: I'm buying this for myself. If I tried to buy one for somebody else on my list, I'd just end up wanting to keep it." —W.R.

  • Oscar de la Renta Oscar Powder Atomizer Set ($105, oscardelarenta.com)

    "There's something about a vintage-style atomizer that brings out the inner girly-girl in just about everyone, and the fragrance smells as pretty as the packaging looks." —W.R.

  • Greg Lauren for Barneys New York ($195, barneys.com)

    "No two of these handcrafted bottles are the same, and though the flacon looks masculine, the scent's blend of tonka bean, vanilla and marine notes is unisex and universally likable. I plan on giving this to my husband and then probably stealing it back for myself." —W.R.

  • Oribe Black and Gold Collection ($61, oribe.com)

    "Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray is one of my favorite hair products of all time, so it's only fair that I spread the love with this set that features both full and travel sizes along with a mini Côte d'Azur Hair Refresher. Plus, the box is so pretty, you don't even have to wrap it." —W.R.

  • Benefit Groovy Kind-a Love Gift Set ($36, benefitcosmetics.com)

    "This little kit includes some of my favorite Benefit products, like the POREfessional primer and the They're Real! Mascara. It's definitely a must for the girly girl on your list." —Megan Segura, Associate Editor

  • Bite Beauty Collector's Edition Lip Layers Set ($98, sephora.com)

    "I'm a huge fan of this all-natural lipstick brand and their highly pigmented colors. These 10 double-ended lipstick come with muted colors for day and more exciting colors for night." —M.S.

  • Josie Maran Escape to Morocco 7-pc. Argan Holiday Collection ($76.96, qvc.com)

    "If you want to give a more robust present, this Josie Maran set is a must. You get a full size and a travel size version of their body butter, hand cream and sugar scrub, as well a regular size of their argan oil. Each product smells amazing." —M.S.

  • Jo Malone Cologne Collection ($100, jomalone.com)

    "I always feel fancy when I spritz on a little Jo Malone perfume. What's great is their scents are made for layering, so you have a ton of possible combinations." —M.S.
