Best Holiday Beauty Collections

The holiday season is upon us and with that comes gorgeous makeup collections from almost every brand! But do not worry! I am here to tell you about the real collections to look out for and which products are worth it.

1.     Haus Laboratories Holiday Collection

https://www.hauslabs.com Burlesque Holiday Set ($46), Sparkle Lipstick ($20)

 Lady Gaga will forever be one of the greatest pop artists of all time, but recently she has been breaking ground with her new makeup company Haus Laboratories. For the holidays, she released a gorgeous, sparkly red lipstick and 4 new shades in her metallic crème eyeshadow collection. The Sparkle Lipstick retails for $20 and each crème eye shadow retails for $22. You can buy them individually or purchase the Burlesque Holiday Set which contains her coveted Liquid Eye-Lie-Ner, a metallic crème eyeshadow in “Glamour Puss”, and the Sparkle Lipstick. The website also gives you the option to Build-Your-Own collection to give as the perfect gift to a fellow makeup-lover. 

2.     Jaclyn Hill Beaming Holiday Collection

Accent Light Highlighter Palette ($49), Mood Light Luminous Powder ($32), Beaming Light Loose Highlighter ($24) https://jaclyncosmetics.com/collections

This has been a moldy, rough year for Ms. Jaclyn Hill…Nevertheless, everybody deserves a second chance, especially with this beautiful, blinding highlighter collection. Jaclyn released a highlighter palette in two shades, a luminous setting powder in five shades, a loose highlighter in five shades, and three brushes (one for each highlighter set). The Accent Light Highlighter Brush and the Beaming Light Highlighter Brush both retail for $20 while the Mood Light Powder Brush retails for $24. These are pretty expensive for makeup brushes; however, the Beaming Light Highlighter Brush is like a miniature fan brush which I personally have never seen any other brands do. Now I know what all of you guys are wondering...are they moldy? Nope! Big beauty influencers like Kathleen Lights, Patrick Starr, and Jeffree Star all reviewed the collection and approve. Each swatch beautifully glows on the skin. 

3.     Kylie Jenner Holiday Collection 2019
