10 Indulgent Beauty Gifts for the Moms in Your LifeNovember 29, 2021
Whether it’s for your own mom, a treasured aunt or a best friend with a little one, a fun and decadent beauty gift is a great way to show the moms in your life some love this holiday season. With so many new beauty releases and gift sets, it can be overwhelming trying to find the present that will make them light up the most. That’s why we’re here to help, with ten of our favorite products and gift sets for the holidays below.
For the busy mom on-the-go, an all-over face palette is key to create a polished, cohesive makeup look in minutes. This elegant palette features a stunning geometric pattern and shimmering shades that range from soft champagne (perfect as an eyeshadow or highlighter) to rich plums and rose quartz hues that shine on the cheeks.
For a fun gift that you and your mom can bond over, consider picking up a couple sheet masks and having a cozy night in. These affordable options from Garnier come in three formulas: plumping, brightening and balancing, to address both your skincare needs.
It’s a clutch! It’s a compact! It’s a...gorgeous powder encased in a lipstick red compact that serves as a statement accessory and the perfect touch-up product in one. Available in seven shades, this velvety finishing powder delivers 12 hours of semi-matte, buildable coverage and can be refilled whenever she finishes using it.
Nestled inside a sleek black clutch, you’ll find a universally flattering matte red lipstick, an ultra-volumizing mascara and Libre, YSL’s intoxicating floral fragrance. The scent features notes of French lavender essence, Moroccan orange blossom and warm vanilla extract.
Urban Decay Hall of Fame Mini
This kit contains all the travel-size staples a makeup minimalist needs: a jet black eyeliner pencil that glides on creamy and stays put for up to 24 hours, a thickening mascara and a setting spray to lock it all in place.
Good makeup prep always begins with a moisturizer. Indulge your mom’s luxurious side with this golden cream that helps to add radiance and soften the appearance of wrinkles. A mix of grand rose extracts, shea butter and essential oils provide intense hydration.
Essie Limited Edition Deluxe Minis Nail Polish Gift Set
Complete with six festive shades and a glossy top coat, this set has all she needs for a holiday party-ready manicure. Our favorite shade is Off Tropic, a rich hunter green that’s equal parts edgy and classic.
This serum’s Art Deco-inspired packaging is so striking, it’s hard to believe you can find it at the drugstore. The antioxidant-packed formula itself is equally impressive. Vitamin E helps to replenish the skin’s natural moisture barrier while hyaluronic acid aids with moisture retention. Skin looks smoother, firmer and more hydrated after continued use.
IT Cosmetics Superhero No-Tug Cream Eyeshadow Stick Trio
There’s no quicker way to pull together a pretty eye look than by using an eyeshadow stick. These three, which come in matte and pearl finishes, offer crease-proof, blendable color that lasts all day.
Add a personalized touch to this cult-favorite floral fragrance by choosing between varying shades of baby pink bottles, an accessory on the cap, and engraving on the front. Notes of freesia, jasmine and rose petals smell like a heavenly bouquet (which we also recommend getting moms).
