A Guide to Sephora's Winter 2013 Makeup Value Sets

'Tis the season for blatant consumerism... and what better way to celebrate than to determine the best way to purchase makeup you don't really need for slightly discounted prices?!

More information about my methods and my suggestions for using this guide are available on my original Sephora Value Set Guide, which you can find by clicking here.

This guide contains Sephora's current full-priced value sets, organized from 'worst' deal to 'best' deal based on [(full price value)/(set cost)]100. As always, please use Control-F to find a particular set. And, of course, I make no guarantees about whether a particular product is actually worth the full price, let alone whether or not it will work well for you. (You probably shouldn't buy anything merely because it is near the end of this list.) This is simply a tool to help shoppers make a slightly more informed decision about any value sets they are considering from Sephora.

  1. Even though I'm not in the US and can't profit from this - you're a total darling for doing this!

  2. This is AMAZING. Goodness, if I hadn't already finished my holiday shopping, I would be using this as a guide, definitely.

    I have gone off Sephora a bit lately. A few things I have ordered online have turned out to be smaller than I expected. User error, I know, but I don't seem to have that problem with other online stores, so it was weird.

    1. Usually Sephora will have the ounces or fluid ounces listed, which should give you a decent idea of the size of the product!

  3. That is a lot of helpful maths!

  4. I was linked to your blog a couple of days ago, on a message board, and have since read all the way back to the beginning. I'm not generally a fan of beauty blogs, but I really love the way that you review, the way you break down the prices (only slightly relevant to me as a Canuck), and how SMART everything on here is!! Many kudos!

  5. Thank you! So much work and such a great list. Interesting to see the "stated value" and "actual value" being compared. Mostly they are fairly close to each other - but there are a few that stand out as being grossly over stated (e.g. number 54). I do love the bargain kits available this time of year (Lancome has been calling my name for a few weeks now.)

    1. Some of the stated values baffle me! How did they come up with it?!

  6. This is so dangerous to read. Because now I feel like I need the Too Faced set just because of what a great value it is.

  7. Oh wow, this is AMAZING! Thank you for putting in so much work. I often care more about variety than value (because I rarely finish products), but I really like to know the value as well.

    1. There is definitely a more intangible value to variety!

  8. Wow that must have taken a lot of work for you to put together! It is very helpful though, thanks.

  9. Yay! I've been hoping to see one of these for holiday sets! Your original post on this transformed the way I look at value sets. I definitely used your tactics in putting together my shopping list for the recent Sephora VIB 20% off sale. I went a little (by which I mean COMPLETELY) overboard shopping that sale, so I can add some qualitative observations to your analysis.

    My goals for the sale were to increase my lipstick and blush collections and to try new (to me) brands - especially Benefit and Tarte. I ordered the following sets: 9, 31, 60, 61, 68, 73, 84, 85, 86, 90, 95. Feelin' Dandy (9) is cool for me because it's the same price as a full-priced Dandelion and includes basically a half-sized Dandelion (I've never hit pan on a blush) plus three other Benefit products in sort of a "deluxe sample" size. I don't love the packaging, because there's no way to cover the blush if you take it out of the whole big box. Marc Jacobs was an impulse buy; I wanted to try his stuff, it's quite expensive, and that set included a good mix of product. I'm happy enough, but I won't be buying more of his makeup any time soon.

    I haven't tried the Kat Von D lipsticks yet, but I read your review and am satisfied they will be a good supplement to my lagging lipstick collection. The packaging is quite small - hard for my big hands to work with. The Benefit Love Fest is going to be my Christmas present to two of my best friends. I love love love the They're Real Mascara, and this included that, plus other goodies in an adorable reusable tin for a good price.

    The NARS Guy Bourdin lip pencils. So, I bought these as a bday gift for my SIL before I read all the controversy about Guy Bourdin. You can't tell from the website, but that heart on the package is not in the background - the model is, er, clutching it between her legs. And the word "Promiscuous" appears appropos of nothing in the bottom center of the box. I mean, it just has the word, like a caption for the photo. Which, whatever, I'm not a prude - but I can't give that to my SIL as a bday present. "Hi, SIL, thought you'd like a product with a photo of a woman humping a big heart and labeled 'promiscuous.' It made me think of you." Yeah, no. It's going back.

    The Too Faced stuff I could have passed on. It seems more like stuff for teenagers. But now I know, and travel sized mascaras are always good. (Though ye gods, if anyone needs those blush/bronzer combos, let me know! I've got like four, because I got something at the beauty.com sale, too!) The Benefit Little Love Potions made me happy because, again, I wanted to try a lot of Benefit products. I wanted the advent calendar, but it sold out (sad face). This was my consolation prize.

    Smashbox Try It Kit is all (good) sample sized and I haven't tried it yet, but for $19? Sure. Travel primer + travel lid primer is always a win. The Tarte of Giving package is overwhelming. I mean - there is a ton of product in there. I've swatched some eyeshadows and been happy (though I haven't used them yet). And the purple package is good quality. The Tarte Pure Delights lip set is just more much-needed lip color for me. I got a Tarte lip pencil in the Give Me Some Lip set and liked it, so I'm happy to have a range of eight colors for a few bucks more than the one Givenchy lipstick that I ordered.

    So, yeah, this is probably way beyond a reasonable comment, but in case anybody is interested, I'll just leave this here! Robyn, thanks again for the work you put into this analysis! Based on this, I will probably exchange the NARS lip products I got for my SIL for one of the Buxom gloss sets!

    1. I love this comment and I am glad you find this to be a helpful framework for bargain-hunting!

  10. I could just imagine how repetitive these calculations got, so major kudos for completing this amazing reference list!

    I picked up 22. Stila Holiday Essentials Kit during the VIB sale because I already love the included Stay All Day Eye Liner. When I shop value sets, I eliminate all options that include products that I have tried and disliked. It helps me to avoid being tempted and cluttering up my place with products I would never use again. Variety plays a key role as well.

    I am definitely eyeing 77. Too Faced La Crème de La Crème Long Lasting Lip Collection because I keep hearing amazing things about the Spice Spice Baby shade.

    1. For some reason, it took me way longer the first time! Having Fraiser on in the background helped...

  11. Completely needed this last weekend for 20% off although I got almost everything I want already. Is anyone else pissed at Tarte for having ridiculous lip surgence holiday set prices compared to previous years? I am officially in protest.

    1. What were they last year? I don't remember.

    2. They were 5 full sized for 34.00. Which means the closest thing this year is the mini 8 set at 34.00 (.48 oz versus .50 oz total). The full sized ones are now 15 for 175.00. So 6.80 versus 11.67. I used to stock on the 5 packs like it was the end of the world. Someone suggested it was because the new 15 pack are not special edition colors - I would argue manufacturing the normal line costs less as you have no product design costs.

  12. It seems like the stated vs. actual costs have greater discrepancies for the holiday sets than the regular sets. Some are right on, but the ones that are off are WAY off. I really want big the Tarte set, but seeng how over inflated the stated cost is kind of turns me off of it.

    1. I don't know, they were pretty bad before... I could run stats on it, though!

  13. Darn it, I already bought the lip tar minis thinking they were a decent value. Oh well...I didn't have any lip tars at all before that so I guess it is still somewhat worth it to me considering I wouldn't have been able to buy that many full-size ones. I also got the Kat Von D Spellbinding Lipstick Set which is apparently a great value, so I feel that I have made up for it. Thanks for doing this!

  14. I'd been eyeing the Lash Stash for a while, if only because I never go through full size mascaras so the idea of getting a bunch of minis for less than $5 each was appealing, but knowing that it's a really good deal has me eyeing it even harder. You are amazing for doing this much work for your readers!

  15. Hah! I actually did a search on your blog last week to see if you'd done a value comparison for the holiday sets, because I was figuring out what to buy myself for my birthday. I gave up on the search for the perfect mix of 'good value' and 'great products' and just bought myself a Naked palette. Maybe I could get a value set for myself for Christmas, though...

  16. In some of the stated values vs actual values you calculated did not account for non-makeup items. For example, The Tarte Gift of Giving Set comes with a travel makeup bag that was not taken into your value calculations. However, whether or not a person believes the bag retails for difference between the stated value is up for debate.
