One of the best parts about gifting your beauty junkie BFF during the holidays is the deals. Since beauty companies are packaging their best sellers into giftables, they're being offered at discounted prices. They're so irresistible that as selfish as it may sound, I highly recommend stocking up on your own beauty loot as you shop for others. I rounded up some of the best beauty deals happening this season so you don't miss out. You're welcome! Lorac Sweet Temptations Eye Shadow Collection, $36 ($304 value)
Inspired by a box of deluxe chocolates, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Carol Shaw created these four eye shadow palettes with rich pigments that are velvety to touch. With names like: Indulge In White Chocolate (dramatic shades), Satisfying Toffee Crunch (natural shades), Tease Me Truffles (plum shades) and Tantalizing Dark Chocolate (bronze shades), the gift set makes a sweet treat for a chocolate lover or anyone who can use a boost to their cosmetic bag. And seriously, who doesn't?

Update your scent with this light, floral fragrance by Marchesa. Feminine notes of freesia, jasmine and violet are layered over a musky finish to create a an intoxicating blend. This gift set comes with a 1 oz. eau de parfum spray, roller ball and hair mist.
Fresh Sugar Addiction Mini Lip Collection, $48 (a $68 value)
Appropriately named, I'm addicted to these tinted lip balms and would surely purchase them for myself if I didn't receive them at the press event. Not only do these lip treatments help prevent and heal chapped lips, but five out of six in this package add a nice buildable tint. My favorites are Rose and Berry.

This value makes them $20 a polish! Ladies, it's so worth it. They're full sized lacquers in Rouge Pop Art (my fave), Rouge Dada and Fuschia Intemporal. These polishes are covetable! I'd even purchase this, keep one for myself and give one to two of my friends as a token on their gifts.
