As we crack open that gorgeous-looking advent calendar to eagerly countdown to Christmas, it’s time to hunt for that perfect gift for your loved ones too. This week, we’ve curated a list of holiday sets tailored for the beauty buff’s around you.
Not only do these sets check the boxes for great value and show-stopping packaging, many of the limited-edition sets are completely collection-worthy too.
If you have yet to visit Acqua di Parma’s newly opened store at Harbour City, their extensive holiday gift collections is more than a good reason for you to.
Step into the new olfactory destination as you enjoy the immersive experience provided by the renowned Italian fragrance maison and get your hands on the stunning gift sets. Some of the best-selling fragrance sets include Colonia, Colonia Essenza, as well as Blu Mediterraneo. The former come in boxes with marbled decorations that combine the traditional Christmas nuances of green, red, and gold with the brand’s trademark radiant yellow, while the latter comes in marbled packaging inspired by the colors of the ocean.
For those who yearn for more of a white Christmas, Atelier Cologne might have just the perfectly-fitting gift for you.
The Crystal Holiday limited-edition collection gets inspiration from the twinkling lights and melting frost warmed by the fireplace. Light up the Bois Montmartre Candle Holiday Limited Edition to breathe in the woody sensation of an intimate cabin in the outskirts. The notes of vetiver and the feeling of pine trees are going to fill your space with warmth and harmony.
The candle also comes as a set with the Cèdre Atlas housed in its exclusive edition bottle. The elegant blend of woody and citrus scents introduces a voluptuous warmth to your cozy winter nights.
Celebration of women’s vitality
Chantecaille’s holiday collection this year takes its cue from the sacred lotus, which symbolizes women’s blooming vitality. The Lotus Perfect Blur Glow Powder and Lotus Blossom Radiant Blush compacts both come in a limited-edition mint green packaging embellished with a gold lotus root medallion, while the Lip Cristal’s shimmer-coated pink opal bullet is housed in a sophisticated mint green case. The sales of Lip Cristal will also contribute to Kenya’s Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in planting trees to combat global warming.
Brilliance of celestial lights
Capturing the dazzling stars and celestial lights, Clé de Peau Beauté’s Radiant Sky Collection is in collaboration with renowned Parisian jeweler Mr. Elie Top. The limited edition products are all encased in the constellation art of hand-drawn, night sky motifs by the jeweler.
The extensive lineup includes La Crème, Lipstick, Le Luminizing Face Enhancer, Eye Color Quad, Translucent Loose Powder, Le Serum, Cleansing Trio, and Lipstick Mini Set, so you’re guaranteed to find something for just about anyone – whether they are a makeup enthusiast or skincare hoarder.
When stars take flight
Embark on a festive journey with Guerlain’s iconic bees. The starry hive buzzes against the enchanting gold and white backdrop for this year’s Fly To The Stars Holiday Collection.
Create a stellar makeup look with the limited-edition Ombres G Eyeshadow N°777 Golden Stars, which contains four vibrant shades of gold, bronze, pink, and burgundy to stun any party. Take the eye look to the next level with a dab of the Gel-gloss in Rose Gold as a top coat of your eyeshadow. The pearlescent pigments catch the festive light perfectly.
Finish the look with the Rouge G lipstick in one of the three favorite holiday limited shades, which is engraved with delicate stars for the occasion.
Capture the power of the moon with shu uemura’s dreamy collaboration with Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal the Movie. The special limited-edition collection marks the 30th anniversary of both the beauty house and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.
Inspired by the starry nights in Tokyo, the limited-edition packaging is seen across both the makeup and skincare items – all in the name of the Moon.
Our favorite has to be the Moon Crisis Eye Palette, which contains 9 celestial eyeshadows housed in a heavenly lunar crescent packaging, making it such a nostalgic collectible piece to own even beyond the holidays.
