Has someone on your list been extra-nice this year? Or just wanna treat yourself? Either way, these beauty gifts are all about luxury indulgence. Go glam or go home!
1. Giorgio Armani Orient Excess Holiday Palette & Clutch
On its own, the palette is gorgeous—a trio of grey, brown and beige shadows plus an illuminating complexion powder, all in a chic navy case. But what's extra-special is that it comes in a matching plush velvet pouch in midnight blue. Swoon!
2. Chanel Les 5 Ombres de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette
Chanel took inspiration from Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel's original fine jewellery collection for these shades of antiqued gold, silver, grey and black eyeshadows. The perfect way to get in on the new metallic smoky eye trend.
3. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Wild Edition
The now classic Touche Éclat is reinterpreted for the holiday season in a collector's edition animal print. It comes in two shades.
4. Tory Burch Bath Soap Set
Could there be a more perfect holiday hostess gift? Each of these four fragranced soaps comes individually wrapped in one of Tory Burch's signature prints.
5. Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick
The latest lipstick launch from Poppy King's Lipstick Queen line was inspired by the ultra-glam ladies of the silver screen. The formula is highly pigmented and richly moisturizing, and comes in seven look-at-me shades.
6. Clarisonic Aria in Gold
The Clarisonic powers up your cleansing routine, removing six times more dirt, makeup and oil versus a regular manual wash. And now it comes in the fanciest colour yet—gold!
7. Dior Deluxe Holiday Palette
Six eyeshadows, two lip colours, blush and illuminating powder, all in a matte black makeup pouch inspired by the oversized Dior bow. Seriously one of the most covetable palettes this season. Hurry before it sells out!
8. Tom Ford Lip Color Set
There are lipsticks, and then there are Tom Ford lipsticks. Tucked inside this namesake box with gold edges are four of the bestselling shades: Spanish Pink, Blush Nude, Bruised Plum and Casablanca.
9. Bottega Veneta Knot
I don't know what it is about Bottega Veneta fragrances, but they smell expensive. (But fortunately, nowhere near the cost of their bags.) The newest one, Knot, evokes the essence of the Italian coastline with notes of sparkling citrus and woods.
10. By Terry Baume de Rose Set
By Terry founder set out to make the "Rolls Royce of lip balms" when she formulated Baume de Rose. And it's THAT GOOD. In this set, you get the original plus four floral-tinted shades.
11. Sephora Collection 24 Karat Gold Mine Brush Set
Talk about luxury—the fibres of these makeup brushes are infused with real 24-karat gold! You get seven brushes in the set, plus a matching gold stand.
Where to buy: Sephora
12. Burberry Complete Eye Palette
Chanel and Dior tend to get all the luxe palette love, but don't forget about Burberry! In their new silky eye quads, available in nine colour palettes, you get an illuminating base, two blendable shades and a liner for definition.
13. Diptyque Hiver Candle
Biting wind, wood fire and roasted chestnuts are the festive scents blended together in this limited-edition seasonal candle. Plus, who doesn't love Diptyque?!
14. Charlotte Tilbury The Supermodel Genius Tutorial Video Box
Consider this the ultimate makeup tutorial. Not only do you get the products—shadows, lipstick, blush, liner, mascara—but the box also has talking video embedded into the lid. Mind-blowing!
Where to buy: Nordstrom
15. Balenciaga B.
The latest scent from the house of Balenciaga features an architectural, marble-inspired bottle and notes of edamame (!), iris and woods. It's a little bit masculine and totally intriguing.
16. Bobbi Brown Beauty Case
Two words: Faux crocodile! I can't think of a more elegant case for storing your makeup essentials at home or on the road.
17. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence with Printed Bottle
The iconic product in the SK-II line is this treatment essence (and maybe the reason spokesperson Cate Blanchett's skin looks so amazing!). The brand collaborated with Taiwanese artist Po Chih Huang to dress up the bottle with flowers for the holiday season, from red tulips, above, to yellow freesias and purple hydrangeas.
18. Sisley Eau de Soir Collector's Edition
For the last 13 years, Sisley has comes out with a collector's edition of its famous Eau de Soir perfume. Just look at that bottle! This luminous version includes citrus, floral chypre, amber and musk notes.
19. Foreo Luna Premium
Foreo's answer to the Clarisonic is the Luna, a pulsing silicone brush that deep-cleanses hygienically and never requires replacement brushes. The new Premium version features four zones that you can adjust depending on your skin's daily needs.
Where to buy: Barneys
20. Clé de Peau Beauté La Crème Night Cream
File this one under "fantasy beauty gifts" (I had to include at least one, right?!). Consider it one of the most luxurious and hi-tech cream-serums on the market, featuring retinol and brightening agents to address the signs of aging skin. And that packaging!!
