I love trying out new makeup but it's hard to commit to a new product when you haven't really tried it. This is why I love makeup gift/value sets. It's the perfect way to test out new things in the trial sizes to see if you want to buy the full size. It's also a great way to discover new things, since you may not buy things included in the sets on a regular basis. These are some of the sets that have caught my eye.
I actually just bought the Bare Minerals Up Close and Beautiful kit and I'm loving it so far. This is the first time I've tried the Bare Minerals foundations and powders and I'm really surprised at how well they work and how natural they look and feel. This kit has the foundation, finishing powder, concealer, primer and two brushes. Great value for $20.
