Makeup sets are truly the gift that keeps on giving. Whether you're looking for the right brushes, a few multitaskers, or simply a way to streamline your routine, they really never let you down. Now, normally I would say they make the perfect holiday or birthday gift, but honestly, why stop there? You should make it a point to snag them all for yourself, really. I like to think of it as making a wise investment in your future. After all, many of the best makeup gift sets are limited edition—meaning, you have to act quickly.

I have to say Armani lipsticks never disappoint so naturally this trio of the brand's liquid formula just simply couldn't be left off this list.

7. Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Lip Colour Set

It's no secret that we editors love Chanel lipsticks. You pretty much can't beat the iconic fashion house's formulas and we (biasedly) think everyone should own at least one. In this case, this gift set allows you to own three.

8. Beautyblender Signature Blend Essentials Set

If a beauty blender is just one of those items that never leaves your makeup stash, you're going to want to snag this limited edition blend essentials set. It comes with two beauty sponges in playful shades of pink and, most importantly, a sponge cleanser.

Makeup brush sets are the perfect way to streamline your routine. This Laura Mercier bundle comes with a fan-shaped powder brush, cheek brush, eyeliner brush, and two eyeshadow brushes. It's truly the only set you'll need for most every day looks.

10. Pat McGrath Labs Major Mini Lip Trio

Mostly, I tend to lust after Pat McGrath eye shadow palettes, but this lip trio is also too good to pass up.

11. Merit Five Minute Morning Set

I will most definitely be splurging on this complete Merit Five Minute Morning Set, thank you very much. The minimalist in me just can't resist.

This is one of the absolute best makeup gift sets for any true aficionado. It includes MAC's legendary Studio Fix Primer, Prep + Prime Lip, and Prep + Prime Fix+ for an impeccably smooth canvas pre-application.

13. Glossier The Essential Edit

Okay, so this set is comprised of both makeup and skincare favorites, but ask any MUA and they'll tell you skin prep is one of the most important parts of makeup application.That's why you need this bundle—it has a cleanser, priming moisturizer, lip balm, the brand's iconic brow polish Boy Brow, and mascara.

14. Fenty Beauty Lil' Bronze Duo

To be perfectly frank, I've been waiting for the right Fenty Beauty makeup set to snag and this on-the-fly bronzing duo might just be the one.

15. Morphe Face the Beat 5 Piece Face Brush Collection

Morphe's Face the Beat collection is another must-have if you just want a few good old fashioned (yet high quality) brushes for a bargain price.

16. Honest Beauty No Makeup Makeup Kit

Your most glowing complexion is a single makeup gift set away. Yes, this bundle is on the pricier side, but these Honest products deliver quite a few skincare benefits in addition to looking stunning when applied.
