Whether as a gift to yourself or someone else -- here are some beauty sets and newly launched products available internationally this holiday season.
Yves Saint Laurent: Les Essentiels
The French luxe brand has re-released its beauty essentials such as the anti-wrinkle winder Touche Eclat, mascaras in blue, purple, burgundy, and khaki, lipsticks in 32 different shades, and classic foundation.
Estée Lauder: Ultimate Red
Estée Lauder has opted for a golden, Swarovski cristal-encrusted packaging for its holiday collection, which comes in colors ranging from deep reds to berry and gold tones. Especially the compact powder cases make for a special present.
The label's Christmas gift suggestions include a set of mini versions of its classic fragrances N°5, Coco Mademoiselle, Coco, N°19 and Allure, called Fragrance Wardrobe, a travel kit called Sublimage Luxury Travel Collection (including regenerating creams), Le Regard de Noir, a smokey eye essentials kit, and the Trio Exclusif de Vernis, a nail polish set of three classic Chanel shades.
Packaged in festive red, Lancôme's holiday collection, L'Absolu Rouge Soirée, includes special eye and cheek palettes in three different color themes ($39.50 at a $70 value), as well as the popular Ink Artliner, a "calligraphic" eyeliner, and the vibrating Ôscillation mascara.
The beauty brand is starting the holiday pre-season by giving something back: to thank its "loyal customers," it has assembled a set of its best-sellers (including eye and lip products as well as powder and beauty tools), which sells at $38 instead of the products' actual total worth of $192.
NARS is launching a new so-called multiple this holiday season, a pinkish product called Luxor that can be used on the eyes, cheeks, lips and body for dynamic accents. Alsopart of its holiday lineup: matte lip pencils, eye shadows and the new Soft Touch Shadow Pencils.
While most other collections become available beginning of November, MAC's holiday range doesn't hit stores until the 25th but it might be worth waiting for the brand's vintage-inspired Baroque Boudoirline. Its other Christmas range, Magic, Mirth & Mischie, comprising makeup kits to solve any beauty issue, is already on sale.
Guerlain: Imperial Holiday
The label has wrapped its powders into new packaging that also seems to be inspired by the burlesque trend, with tassels, sparkle, and lace patterns abounding.
