Limited Edition Holiday Value Sets


fullsizeoutput_403Tis 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!

If you are looking for a budget-friendly gift set for this year, the Benefit Cosmetics Limited Edition Holiday Value Sets may be for you. There are several to choose from and there are multiple stores with sales. The company is running a sale on their own web site. Stores like Ulta have additional incentives–so keep an eye out for the best value!

Each set comes in a collectable tin. They are decorated with graphics that apply to the company, to California, or to the included products. The one that I purchased from Ulta (for $19) has a depiction of Lombard Street in San Francisco.

fullsizeoutput_40fEach set has different products. This one has the POREfessional face primer travel size mini. This primer is a translucent oil-free formula that contains a Vitamin E. It also contains a mini brush on eyebrow gel and the full size of the Rockateur rose gold cheek powder and a custom angled, dimensional brush.

With all of the sales that are occurring now, it could be a good time to pick up a limited edition set for yourself and for a gift.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Benefit Cosmetics. Have you tried any of their products? What are some of your favorites?

While you plan your holiday purchases, 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.
