🎄 Blogmas #5 Christmas Makeup Giftsets – are you being ripped off?! Part 3.

Hey guys! Welcome to day five of Blogmas and the final part of my little series where I tell you the value of the makeup giftsets that we’re all looking at for Christmas! I really like them, personally, but I’m asking the question: are you getting your money’s worth?

**DISCLAIMER** There are no affiliate links in this post, all reviews are 100% my own and they mean no offence to the brands themselves.

Let’s get down to it!

  1. Nyx Jet Set Travel Kit – Matte VS Glow, £25.


What is the value? You get seven products: a primer, a highlighter, liquid lipstick, blush, setting powder, lip balm and setting spray. Each product comes to £3.50 each. Honestly, the best value I have seen throughout this entire series of posts.

What size are the products? I think this is another amazing thing too as you have three full size products and the rest are tester sizes.

Packaging? It’s quite basic packaging but definitely very useful for storing your makeup in, travelling etc.

Overall? 100% Morgie approved. My sister bought me a similar version of this last year and I was overwhelmed with the quality of it. I still have the highlighter from last year and I use it a lot so it goes to show how long-lasting it all is. The fact you get three full size products in this is amazing, too. 100/10.

2. Kat Von D x Too Faced Better Together Cheek and Lip Makeup Bag Set, £33.

What is the value? You get six products; a highlighter, a blush, a lipstick and a liquid lipstick and two makeup bags which amounts to £5.50 each which is really good value.

What size are the products? By the looks of it, only the lipstick and the bags are fullsize but that isn’t bad, to be honest!

Packaging? I don’t know what the actual box looks like but the bags are so adorable.

Overall? Overall, I think this is my second favourite from the Nyx. I was really impressed with the value of this and the fact that you can try two brands. I’m tempted to put it on my Christmas list! 9/10.

3. Benefit How To Look The Best at Everything Complexion Kit, £27.


What is the value? You get six products: a primer, a foundation, a duo-bronzer, a powder and a brush and if you divide it all, it brings the products to £4.50 each which for Benefit products is amazing as they’re normally rather pricey. I think the true value of this product is the foundation in it?! I have literally never seen a foundation in a makeup giftset. #shook.

What size are the products? I think they’re all minis.

Packaging? Soooo cute. I love the book-look so much.

Overall? 10/10. I love Benefit and their products and I think this would be perfect for the right person – you wouldn’t want them to take offence at the ‘complexion’!

4. Too Faced Best Year Ever Makeup Giftset, £46.

What is the value? 3 palettes which include eyeshadow, blush, bronzer and highlighter and also a mascara and a makeup bag which all comes to £9.20 each.

What size are the products? I think the mascara is tester size but the palettes are full-size.

Packaging? How cute? It honestly reminds me of those three tiered pencil cases you used to be able to get from the Disney shop with the pre-set pens and pencils. So cute! I love it.

Overall? A really good product. I would definitely buy this for someone and I think it is really good value. 10/10.

5. Kat Von D London Calling Volume 2£19.50.

What is the value? You get a lipstick, a liquid lipstick and a liner but I’m combining the size category too because I think they’re going to be tiny so for £6.50 each, I don’t think the value is that great.

Packaging? Eh. It’s okay. I don’t like Kat Von D’s packaging that much anyway so I think that’s just a personal preference.

Overall? I think it’s okay for the slightly smaller price but not the best Kat Von D set you can get.

So, there you have it! That’s the end of the series. I hope you guys found it beneficial to your gift-choosing.

Morgie out.
