Tis the season for the holiday gift set bonanza, not only at stores like Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom, but also Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Target. These items are available now and will most likely be sold out before the first snowflake falls. So each Friday I will be featuring holiday sets on my blog. I will let you know where I bought the items and the purchase price. (And if there are any deals!) There will be items for every budget level and I will include a product review. Be sure to check back each Friday!
The EOS lip balms sets are available at Ulta and box/drugstores. The 2 balm set is currently (as of the posting date) $5.99 at Ulta and $5.21 at Walmart. The 3 balm set is $8.99 at Ulta and $7.99 at Walmart.
The lip balms are enriched with natural conditioning oils and moisturizing shea butters. The 2 pack includes Organic Vanilla Bean and Natural Pumpkin Spice. The 3 pack includes Visibly Soft Peppermint Mocha, Organic Vanilla Bean and Natural Sparkling Ginger.
EOS are some of my favorite lip balms. The egg-shaped container is just perfect to keep on your desk. It doesn’t get lost in the clutter like a stick lip balm. (And writers tend to have a lot of clutter!)
These sets make wonderful gifts for people who don’t like the feel of lipstick or the stickiness of gloss. They are also good for people who wear lipsticks all of the time. Many lipsticks dry out your lips (especially the very popular matte and liquid lipsticks) and using a balm can help soothe dry patches.

Have you purchased a “holiday” gift set this year? Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
While you put on makeup, why not listen to a good book? Starter Zone, the first book of my new YA/LitRPG series, The Revelation Chronicles, is now available on Audible!
When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail. Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.
Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.
But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.
Time to play the game.
