In just eight shorts weeks, the holidays will be over. Don't let that fact depress you. Or scare you because you need to start your holiday shopping (or hauling) now. The holiday beauty collections are out and they are better than ever. These are the top holiday makeup collections that should be on your radar for this year.
1. NARS Man Ray Holiday Collection
Man Ray for NARS is a gorgeous collection highlighted by the Overexposed Glow Highlighter, The Veil Cheek Palette and Glass Tears Eyeshadow Palette. With gift sets that are sure to be sell-outs and a must-have golden shimmer Muse Photogloss Lip Lacquer, look at all the beauties that make up the NARS Man Ray Holiday Collection here.
2. MAC Snow Ball Holiday Collection
MAC Cosmetics has outdone themselves with this year's Snow Ball collection. Filled with glistening winter-themed frost filled makeup products and sets that we have known to love MAC for, Snow Ball has something for everyone. From the Snow Ball Mini Lipstick Kits and Holiday Lipstick Set to the must-have Face Powders (you need to see the embossed snowflake in this powder to appreciate its beauty), I can't get enough— and neither will you.
3. Urban Decay Heavy Metals Holiday Collection
Leave it to Urban Decay to bring the metallics better than any other brand to the holiday season. With the must-see (because you will buy it for yourself, once you do) Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette and a collection of Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner plus the most, and arguably the best lip sets and palettes this year has seen, Urban Decay is a metallic lovers fantasy come true. Don't miss the Little Liquid Vices and Little Vices sets!
4. Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies Collection
The Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies Collection is a mix of elegance and get-your-party-on. The makeup is simply gorgeous and I want so much of it! The star product is the Caviar & Rubies Eye Shadow Palette, but the Moon Glow Highlighting Powder is also a must-have. If you have a lip lover in your life, the Luxe Classics Mini Lip Set is s splurge, but worth it.
5. CHANEL Collection Libre 2017
This year the CHANEL Holiday makeup Collection is all about the reds and it is a classic waiting to happen. If you are a red lipstick gal, this one is for you. The collection features a limited edition red lacquered click case (choose from four different red lipstick colors) that any CHANEL makeup fan or collector is going to need. The collection also features a stunning eyeshadow palette in shades of browns and greens.
6. Tarte Holiday 2017
Tarte is known for releasing a wide selection of products — from limited edition palettes with an insane amount of products, to gift sets galore, I always look forward to their collection. This year's palette must is the tarteist trove collectors set, but I am also liking the looks of the treasure's box collectors set. The goddess glow highlighter is absolutely beautiful, the two brush sets are fabulous deals and as a tarte lip fan, the quick dry & glossy lip set is sure to be good.
7. Dior Precious Rocks Holiday 2017
The Dior Holiday collection is a mix of glistening soft metallics with vibrant color and it is nothing short of stunning. The limited edition Shimmering Sculpting Powder is not to be missed and if you want a palette that will get you beyond holiday through winter, the Couture Colour Wardrobe Palette is the one you need.
8. Shu Uemura Super Mario Bros Holiday Collaboration
If you are a fan of the nineties, you know all about Super Mario Bros. I think any video game fan knows about this wickedly popular game. How fun is this collaboration for the holidays which includes makeup and skincare. The must-have item is definitely Peaches Eye and Cheek Palette.
9. Laura Mercier Holiday Makeup Collection
Laura Mercier always does a makeup collection that is wearable and elegant. This year's collection is certainly no exception. The collection includes gift sets, I think I always pick up the Lip Glacé set, or version of it, a Master ClassColour Essentials Collection (it's her 3rd edition) and more. Everything has an exotic theme this is not to be missed.
10. Fenty Beauty Galaxy Holiday Collection
Within weeks of the Fenty Beauty Collection came the Fenty Beauty Galaxy Holiday Collection and this one is made for unicorn makeup lovers. And yes, that includes me. The highlight of the collection is the Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette, but there are also four Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter's that I am loving on, plus lipstick and liner.
