The best Sephora gift sets this holiday season, according to someone who’s tried them

Oribe Gold Lust Collection Hair Set

Sephora


As someone with kitchen cabinets full of makeup and skincare, I’ve tried a whole lot of what’s available at Sephora. This year’s holiday gift sets are officially here, and there are a few available now that I can recommend wholeheartedly. There are also a few that I can recommend wholeheartedly but have already sold out — yes, in November. So if you want to snag the best of what’s at Sephora, be sure to shop now rather than waiting until December.

Special edition Dyson Airwrap™ multi-styler Complete Long in Vinca Blue/Rosé

The Dyson Airwrap styler is designed to help you dry and style your hair with minimal heat. It has grown popular thanks to its ease of use, versatile styling options and ability to style hair while minimizing heat damage.

This summer, a new generation of the Airwrap was released. The new version of the Dyson Airwrap has a couple of improvements. The curler attachment has been updated to accommodate clockwise and counterclockwise curling. It also includes a new flyaway-reducing tool that smooths hair.

It’s always difficult to find the styler in stores or online thanks to high demand. But the Dyson Airwrap multi-styler Complete Long (for long hair) is available now on the Dyson site in a special edition Vinca blue/rosé hue. The Airwrap with the latest technology is also available for all hair lengths in a nickel/copper color.
