Usually 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:

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.
