As we count down the days until Christmas, HUNGER selects the very best beauty bits you’ll want to unwrap on the 25th.
If you’re anything like us, you’re hoping that you’ll be opening an endless supply of the best beauty products on Christmas morning. But now that anyone and everyone has their own beauty line (we’re looking at you Lady Gaga and Millie Bobby Brown), it’s hard to know who to trust when it comes to the best of the best. Here, we’ve handpicked our fave festive treats from the world of beauty to ensure that you give your family and friends the presents they deserve.
Aesop Facial Primrose Hydrating Cream
They’re at the forefront of skincare. With such a strong product, they don’t feel the need to hide behind flamboyant packaging, instead, just stating the ingredients and making sure the product does exactly as it says on the tin. If your skin falls victim to the winter weather, the Facial Primrose Hydrating Cream is a go-to for an effective quick fix. Smooth, luxe and fast-working, it’ll easily become a part of your daily routine.
Marc Jacobs Perfect
Uh-oh! We feel like this one needs no introduction to be honest. You only need to look at the back catalogue of Marc Jacobs’ fragrances to see that they stand the test of time – yes, we’re still buying Daisy! Can’t stop, won’t stop! But the new fragrance Perfect is a burst of floral excitement that seems set to give Daisy a run for its money. With top notes of Rhubarb and Daffodil, Perfect is the sweet scent of the season.
Gucci Glitter Lipsticks
An online exclusive, the Rouge à Lèvres Lunaison glitter lipsticks are full of festive feeling. With gorgeous art-deco inspired packaging and an array of colours with a sparkling finish, these lippies are as luxe as it gets.
Glossier Skincare Edit
It’s the one that everyone wants, and who can blame them. Equipped with all of the Glossier best bits from their incredible Milky Jelly Cleanser to the Super Bounce Serum, it’s effectively an essential pack of all the things you need in your beauty bag.
Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
Kiehl’s knows a thing or two about Christmas. While previous partnerships have included the likes of Jeff Koons, KAWS, Mickey and Peter Max, their new festive collection sees them teaming up with the brilliant Lyon-based artist Maïté Franchi, who has given their packaging a fun and festive illustrative edit. This season, we’re championing the Clearly Corrective Spot Solution, which is infused with Activated C, White Birch and Peony Extracts to help brighten the skin and provide a more even skin tone.
Plenaire Skin Frosting
Despite being relatively new to the beauty game, Plenaire has a bunch of products which are strong enough to feel like they’ve been around forever. An excellent formula teamed with perfect packaging, the Plenaire Skin Frosting is a yuletide must-have. A thick and creamy face mask, it tackles dehydrated and weathered skin to give you a silky-smooth glow, leaving you party-ready after just once use!
Byredo Tobacco Mandarin
There’s nothing Byredo does that we haven’t fallen in love with. The candles. The perfumes. And now the makeup – which is a totally different ball-game all together (can we get the lipstick in every shade please?) But on the fragrance side, we can’t help but obsess over the Byredo Tobacco Mandarin. With a tinge of citrus and spice, there’s nothing we’d rather be wearing on Christmas this year.
Chanel No. 5 Holiday
No one does beauty quite like Chanel. The epitome of luxe, products under the Chanel No. 5 line are some of the best in the beauty biz. This season, they’ve dropped the flawless Holiday 2020 collection which sees a selection of vibrant and festive hues across eye-shows and lipsticks, as well as an array of re-imagined skincare products, including hair mist, body cream, deodorant and shower gel all available.
Shiseido Wrinkle Smoothing Cream
Aside from their stellar makeup range, the skincare line at Shiseido is as advanced as they come. The divine Wrinkle Smoothing Cream set offers up the eye cream, softener and serum, as well as the main softening moisturiser. Time to tackle those LOL lines, right?
