Is there a better way to ring in the party season than with your sparkliest outfit and beauty products to match? We think not. Here are the best (and flashiest!) buys that are just begging to be worn this festive season.
Dior 5 Couleurs Happy 2020 in Party In Colours
This New Year’s-inspired eyeshadow palette screams FUN. Wear each colour on its own to make a statement; blend two to three shades for a bold take on a smoky eye; or simply etch each colour along your lash line for a jolt of colour every time you blink.
Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Lunaison Lipstick in Goldie Red
Have you ever seen a lipstick so pretty in your entire life? Gucci’s latest foray into beauty-land has stopped us in our tracks: the pink and gold casing is bound to stand out amongst your belongings, and the glittering tube of red lippie will brighten your day just by looking at it.
CHANEL No. 5 Fragments D’Or
Fact: It really doesn’t get more luxurious than a jumbo-sized sparkling body gel - from CHANEL, of course - that’ll see you through the upcoming summer months. Besides being generously scented with their signature juice, No. 5, the micro-fine particles of shimmer are the key to highlighting your features - be it your collarbones, arms or legs.
Guerlain Meteorites Pearl Powder Christmas Collectors Edition
No Christmas party look is complete without a dusting of Guerlain’s Meteorites over our cheekbones, and this season is no different. This year’s collector’s edition shows off glimmering balls of pearl, bronze and gold to bring the complexion to life. Be still our beating heart…
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Le Cushion Encre De Peau High On Stars Edition
Not a fan of cushion compacts? You will be, after clapping eyes on this baby. Inside the star-studded case, discover a glowy medium coverage base that can be easily built up to a fuller coverage with just a few taps of the sponge applicator.
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Touche Éclat High On Stars Edition
Or, if you’re more looking to boost your radiance on the go, you might want to add YSL’s iconic Touch Éclat to cart now. This festive season sees the French brand capture their best-selling formula in a glittering gold and silver pen case.
Tom Ford Metallique
Trust Tom Ford to bring out a fragrance that’s totally flashy and OTT this season. Oh, and of course, the perfume inside is just as nice and sensual as the others from the brand; discover notes like white flowers, pink peppercorn and white blossoms layered with vanilla and creamy sandalwood that are totally fitting to wear on balmy nights to come.
Mecca Max Wild Side Eye Brush Quad
Yes, you’re seeing correctly… you’ll get four baby-soft eyeshadow brushes in one totally-versatile pink case for under $50. We never thought we’d see the day but we’re so glad we discovered this gift set. Go on, treat yourself.
Estée Lauder Sumptuous Rebel Mascara
Don’t underestimate the small brush head of Estée Lauder’s Sumptuous Rebel Mascara; this clever little buy is surprisingly good at lengthening *and* lifting every little hair, even the ones in the inner corners of your eyes. The best bit? The long-wearing formula promises to stay put for a long time (we’re talking 24 hours, which is no mean feat) and won’t flake, even when it comes into contact with sweat and humidity.
