Beauty Gifting: Glossier Black Tie Set

Glossier Black Tie Set Review - Politics of Pretty

File the Glossier Black Tie Set as a gift to give… and get for yourself.

I have a habit of always wanting to splurge on myself right before the holiday season. I love gift giving (and getting)—it’s my love language. I thought I would treat myself to this kit in hopes of not having to drop even more on a bunch of other beauty products.

The Glossier Black Tie Set is a four-piece limited edition set filled with makeup staples for special occasions and just in time for the holiday season. This is perfect for the beauty junkie who has everything (thanks to the limited-edition products) or the minimalistic beauty. Here’s a quick breakdown of what you’ll find in this box:

The No. 1 Pencil Eyeliner in Graphite, a soft black that’s easy to glide on eyes for a simple flick or a smoky eye.

Haloscope Highlighter in Moonstone, an opalscent glaze with flecks of pink and blue. I’m a highlighter fanatic so I never leave the house without applying a little on my cheekbones, brow bone and the Cupid’s bow.

Clear lip gloss—I was actually the least excited about this product prior to getting it but now it holds a permanent residence in my Louis Vuitton Favorite PM bag. I’m always reaching for it because it’s the easiest lip product to apply on the go and I never have to worry about it matching my outfit.

Glossier nail polish in signature pink—This polish has a polyester resin that attaches to the nail to minimize drying time—making it easy to apply day-of for those holiday parties. Personally, since I’m on a budget this season I’ve decided to cut back on gel manicures and pedicures at the salon and this has been the perfect replacement.

Cyber week sales are in full force! Glossier is offering 20% off sitewide and free shipping, which includes this limited-edition set. But hurry! Offer ends today, 11/28.

What’s on your beauty wish list this holiday season?
