If you thought there'd be even a short beauty shopping lull after last week's massive cyber sales, I'm here to inform you of another insanely good deal to snap up this season. Violet Grey, L.A.'s buzziest luxury beauty boutique frequented by the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, January Jones, and Laura Harrier, has officially launched the beauty gift box to end all beauty gift boxes: the 2020 Violet Box. The ultra-curated package is filled with an impressive selection of the retailer's best sellers across skincare, makeup, and hair that have gotten the ultimate stamp of approval from shoppers all year long.
The price is steep at $425, but the value of all the items included tallies up to over $1000. While spending a large portion of a month's rent on beauty products might sound completely asinine, it's worth considering exactly what's included in this set. These are top-tier beauty products experts and editors already adore.
Included in the haul is a selection of 13 full-size and premium samples of cult favorites from heavy-hitting beauty brands like U Beauty, BeautyStat, Nécessaire, and Augustinus Bader. The cherry on top is that they're all housed in a box so chic it doesn't even require wrapping. Whether you're shopping for yourself or another bougie beauty lover in your life, this is the gift. Trust me.
Convinced yet? Well, act fast because the last time Violet Grey released a gift box like this it sold out in a single day. Keep scrolling for more on each and every item included, along with a few more favorites from the retailer that our editors vouch for.
When this serum launched last year, 20,000 bottles flew off the shelves in the first 24 hours. It erases skin damage with a potent blend of antioxidants, retinol, and vitamins C and E that's formulated to target damaged skin cells and bypass healthy ones.
Dr. Barbara Sturm's eponymous line is beloved by beauty editors for its results-driven, science-backed formulations. This one calms inflammation with luxe ingredients like Cardiospermum extract, gamma-linolenic acid, stearidonic acid, and omegas 3, 6, and 9.
You've likely heard of the now-iconic face cream from Augustinus Bader (you know, the one Victoria Beckham swears by), but the brand recently launched this equally impressive body oil. It features the brand's signature TFC8 complex and other nourishing ingredients like olive oil and squalane. The result is seriously soft, supple skin.
This weightless cream might not feel as heavy on the skin as others that promise serious moisture, but that doesn't stop it from delivering up to 12 hours of nourishment. The brand's signature Royal Fern Complex sinks deep into the epidermis to stimulate collagen production and reduce pigmentation.
Ever wondered what Margot Robbie's pre-makeup skincare routine is like? Well, according to her makeup artist, it involves these sheet masks.
This potent antioxidant serum was developed by cosmetic chemic Ron Robinson and has seen a meteoric rise to cult status since its launch. The key is its patented encapsulated vitamin C.
When Jennifer Aniston's makeup artist talks, we listen. And when she creates her very own line of makeup, we buy it.
Seriously, this is everyone's favorite red lip palette. It's full of deliciously clean ingredients like cold-pressed cherry and marula oils and houses four different shades of crimson to mix and match to your heart's content.
While you can certainly tap on your red lip color with your finger, this coordinating brush makes for more precise application.
Body serum is the trendy new product category bubbling up in the beauty sphere, and Nécessaire started it all. After you cleanse and exfoliate with the brand's other elevated, natural bodycare offerings, trap in moisture with the hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and ceramides in this nongreasy formula.
This iconic fragrance is a cult favorite for many reasons, the most important being that it basically makes you smell like a pile of money. Scan the vanities of the chicest ladies out there and you're bound to spot this bottle.
Split ends don't stand a chance against this fast-absorbing serum. Not only does it nourish the hair with cactus extract, prickly pear oil, and fatty acids, but it can also serve as a heat protectant up to 440°.
