2014Usually PRO/STYLE pops up on Wednesdays, but I wanted to get this to you early so you can take advantage of the great deals out in retail land for your New Year's Eve festivities.

I did a little shopping for you today, hoping that either:

-You received a bit of money as a present over the holidays, or

-You made a couple returns and now have a little money burning a hole in your pocket!

Either way, at holiday time, cosmetic manufacturers have gift sets that are always a great deal. The only better deal is after the holidays, when a few manufacturers discount them even further :).

Too Faced, Bare Minerals, Smash Box and Lorac are the specific discounted gift sets I looked for today and saw in stock at Ulta Cosmetics. Nordstrom (my focus store for the last six months) blew out of the Bare Minerals and Smash Box gift sets- so it's pretty great that Ulta still has some at the further discounted price!

Here are a few I especially liked this season and thought you might too:

Too Faced 'Joy to the Girls': Pre-Christmas $45 now $36. 15 gorgeous shadows and a full sized mascara to boot.

Too Faced 'All I Want For Christmas': Pre-Christmas $45 now $36. Lip cream, full sized shadow insurance, blush, eye-shadow trio compact, eyeliner, mascara.

Bare Minerals 'Simply Irresistible': Pre-Christmas $49 now $39.

  • Heirloom Eyecolor (shimmering grey) 0.02 oz
  • Posh Eyecolor (sparkling carbon) 0.02 oz
  • Cheek Tint in Charm (candy heart pink) 0.03 oz
  • Secret Radiance All-Over Face Color (golden candlelit sheen) 0.03 oz
  • Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel (pink mauve) 0.15 oz
  • Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner in Midnight (blackout) 0.04 oz
  • Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Black 0.33 oz

Smashbox 'Wondervision' sets: 

Eyes: Pre-Christmas $32 now $24. Each set has 6 gorgeous eye shadows a full sized liner and full sized mascara. Three color sets to choose from. These are GONE at Nordstrom!

Lips: Pre-Christmas $24 now $19. 5 full sized glosses. Gone as well at Nordies.

Lorac 'Rockin' Red Hot Mini Lip Gloss Set: Pre-Christmas $24 now $19. 8 adorable paraben-free glosses, full of anti-oxidants and yummy nutrients.

Are you thinking about trying out red lips for the new year? No need to spend a lot of money! NYX has great lipstick for $3.99 and right now, it's buy one, get one 50% off at Ulta. I'm wearing NYX Chaos tomorrow night and I bought Blush for 50% off (I just couldn't go without buying that second one...they got me!)

Happy New Year! Thanks for a great 2013 and here's to a fabulous 2014.
