Makeup enthusiasts love anything related to makeup. They can spend all their time discussing and searching for makeup products. Add the holidays to the mix and we have a happy party. Given that most products are easily displayed, advertised and reviewed on social media platforms, such as Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram, getting ahold of beauty products has become even easier. With the release of a new line, brand or collection, there are bloggers and eager fans waiting to get their hands and pinions into the mix.
With that said, Fall 2018 has been quite a fruitful period. For most shoppers, this is the time new products got thrown into the mix, not just in the tech aspect but, generally. The ever-expanding beauty industry was at the top of its game and continues rising even higher. The new launches are coming just in time for the Christmas season.
Makeup this Christmas
Since new makeup and beauty products launched as early as August, early shoppers have managed to buy at least half of their 2018 Christmas Gifts.
With each release, the competition continues growing, and makeup brands have to compete for the attention of shoppers.
Almost every week, there is a new makeup launch, so far, we have seen the likes of Fenty Beauty, Kylie Cosmetics, Jeffree Star Cosmetics and NYX amongst others. The budget range is as wide as Santa’s ride from the North Pole to your home - fully accommodative.
Fortunately, more makeup releases are still hitting the shelves and no doubt that these products arrived just in time for the gift-giving season.
In the spirit of giving, gifting and making the most out of the Christmas season, let’s take a look at some of the best US makeup picks that will make the best presents this season.
With this lipstick, Christmas 2018 came early. Literally. After numerous pleas from their loyal fans to change the components of the Generation G Lipstick, Glossier has gone and done exactly that! What a way to say thank you for being loyal throughout the year.
Additionally, Glossier gave more substance to the formula by adding a slightly more pigmented reboot. Yes, the shade lineup remains the same, not to steal the thunder from you. But the lipstick is now more desirable in its bigger, chubbier size for the same price as before the upgrade.
Ever heard the statement that the secret to well blended and applied makeup lies in the selected brush? Well, these brushes can attest to the statement. With neatly packed thick bristles, these brushes are the epitome of makeup and beauty. The brush bristles are made from cruelty-free, luxurious nylon. To match the quality and essence, the handles are made from birch right from the heart of Eastern Europe. The combination works together to pick and apply product seamlessly and effortlessly.
This is the age of monochrome. Well, it always has been, but the 2018 holiday season will experience more monochrome than before. What better way to blend in than these ultrafine shimmer powders. Buy yourself the ultimate Christmas gift from the USA and have these nine shades of duochrome shift powders forwarded from the US to your country. You choose how to use them. Become radiant when you lightly dust on your cheekbones or use as a highlighter. You can even use as an eye tint and alter the super pigmented effect by using either a wet or dry brush.
Not everything on your Christmas wish list and present basket should be super expensive. Take this eyeshadow palette for instance. Drawing inspiration from the bricks of New York City, this palette is in every aspect an NYC storybook for Christmas. Your local drugstore should only have something similar to this around January 2019. Be the trendsetter and wear yours this Christmas.
Not all things from Tom Ford are about the scent and lips. This season for one, the brand decided to take the attention to the eyes. Just in time for Christmas, look fancy by using any quad to achieve the perfect finish. Depending on your mood and venue, you can: shimmer, sheer sparkle, satin or be matte.
You get busy during the festive season. Whether taking care of your husband and kids or quenching fires between your cousins, with this tinted topical salve for lips, you’ll be able to take care of your looks in no time and still be a part of the holiday festivities…or squabbles. Be ready to meet the weather in either Flesh, Deep Flesh or Vamp tint.
Hello, glowing face! Make this Christmas like no other. Using this simple face gloss glitter, you can give your skin a wet glow. The formula behind the glitter gives a colorless gloss with multi-color suspended glitter and a light silvery pearl. There’s no time for your face to look and feel tired this holiday. Wipe it over with this Vitamin-infused gloss for a balanced moisturized look and feel.
Maybe it’s Christmas, or maybe it’s Maybelline. Whatever it is, there is no guessing game; you’re going to look dazzling in this Maybelline Limited Edition Mascara (available in Ultra Violet, Deja Blue, Black Cherry and Pitch Black). From the kings of the great lash, you get yourself the perfect mascara to snap away this festive season. Just in case you were not aware, blue against red, white and green (main Christmas colors) is fire. Snapscara is very easy to use, it slicks on and off easily and requires a couple of thorough strokes to be well applied.
Although nude lipstick seems to be the order of the day, there is no denying that red gives women that glow, that fire, that oomph. To save you time worrying over the perfect red, Mented took care of the issue by giving three shades at a go. Select from Red Rover (deep red with blackberry undertones), Red Carpet (a blue, cool-toned red), and Red & Butter (a bright, yellow-undertone red).
This eye palette from Sephora is our showstopper. Not just because this is Huda’s first ever nude eyeshadow palette, but because it comes with 18 shades of nude. Who does that? (well Fenty Beauty is not part of the discussion). But, hey! 18 gorgeous shades of shimmers and mattes. You’re sure to find your shade of nude, and one for your high-maintenance best friend. And while at it, even find something subtle enough to gift Grandma this Christmas. If you don’t want to use it now, buy it for the sake of history this palette is going to create in the near future.
