If you’re stumped on what to buy your beauty-obsessed loved one this year, you’ve come to the right place. As beauty editors, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about makeup, skin care and pretty much all things beauty. We’re well-versed in the newest launches, the coolest trends and all the best cult-favorite products on the market. So, for some major shopping inspiration, allow us to walk you through our perfectly curated beauty editor wishlist for the holiday season. From makeup to skin care, we promise whoever you’re shopping for will be impressed by your picks.
Clarisonic Mia Smart + IT Cosmetics Bright and Glowing Skincare Holiday Gift Set
Two of our favorite brands came together to give us the gift of glowing skin. This definitely ranks in the top three items on our holiday wishlist because it includes the Clarisonic Mia Smart Anti-Aging Device, Daily Radiance Brush Head, IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm, IT Cosmetics Miracle Water Micellar Cleanser and the IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce Anti-Aging Moisturizer. In other words, it’s everything you could possibly need for glowing and youthful-looking skin.
Essie There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays Duo
In our opinion, a holiday look isn’t complete without a festive manicure. Throw this set into any stocking and prepare to get showered in love. The duo includes two shades, After School Boy Blazer, which is a rich royal blue, and No Place Like Chrome, a captivating, metallic silver shade.
Urban Decay Naked Honey Drop Vault
This gift set is as sweet as it sounds and that’s why we (and every other beauty fanatic) need it in our collection this season. Featuring the new and luxurious Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette, which includes 12 stunning shades of amber, gold and chocolate hues, this palette on its own is an amazing gift. But add the Honey Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Honey Lip Plumper, Honey Scented Sparkling Body Powder and the Honey-Scented All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray, and you’ll be giving Santa a run for his money.
NUDESTIX Daydreamer Palette by Hilary Duff
We have major heart eyes for this NUDESTIX and Hilary Duff collab. Perfect for the beauty guru who is always on the go, this limited-edition, exclusive kit has everything you need for a quick beat. We’re talking about the Nudies Matte All-Over Blush Color in Body Language, Nudies Glow All-Over Highlight in Half Moon, Magnetic Luminous Eye Color in Prism, Bright Eyes and Night Dweller and the Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm in Secret Keeper.
Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara Big Volume Lash Trio
The only thing better than receiving the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara is receiving it in a lash trio set. The mascara is already one of our favorites, so we’re sure your loved one will be just as obsessed. The set comes with a regular and mini version of the Monsieur Big and a mini Bi-Facil Makeup Eye Remover.
Viktor & Rolf BONBON Twist & Spray Travel Trio
Our vanities are stocked with lip products, eye palettes and blushes galore. Often what goes under our radar, though, is fragrance. That’s why it’s always nice to be gifted a new scent during the holidays. This Viktor & Rolf Trio is great because it smells of sweet florals and you can pop the travel-sized sprays in your purse and gym bag or leave it on your vanity.
Lime Crime Jolly Daze Mini Velvetines Lip Set
Nothing gets us in the holiday spirit more than a bold and bright red lipstick. This Lime Crime Jolly Daze Lip Set contains five mini lippies in different variations of red and nude. It’s great to give on its own or throw in as a stocking stuffer — either way, any beauty lover will be seriously grateful.
PÜR Best Sellers Kit
Every beauty guru will admit that no matter how many products you have, you always want to try a brand’s best-sellers — that’s why this kit from PÜR is a great option. Normally, it retails for $105 but you can get it now for only $38. Not only is the receiver going to be happy, but so is your wallet. That, my friends, is called a win-win.
