Your lips deserve a little luxury, so treat them to Armani Beauty’s Lip Maestro Matte Liquid Lipstick. Currently, 10 of its no-budge red shades, including Cardinal Red seen above, are on sale at Nordstrom, so stock up while you can.
Your body care routine is just as important as your facial skin-care regimen, so keep dryness at bay with Kiehl’s Body Care Set. It includes three full-size body care essentials, including the brand’s best-selling Creme de Corps Body Moisturizer, to condition and plump skin for a softer, velvety-smooth feel.
If reapplying is your arch nemesis, add Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream Lipstick to your going-out clutch stat. This pigmented lip stain has a staying power made more impressive by the texture of the formula itself: matte and full coverage but still creamy, meaning it doesn’t dry out or flake halfway through the day — it’s why it won an Allure Best of Beauty Award in 2020.
This Nordstrom-exclusive Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Eyeliner & Mascara Set comes stacked with two full-size They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara, a jet black formula that fans out lashes for mega volume. A full-size They’re Real! Xtreme Precision Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is the cherry on top, with a tapered brush for impressively angled cat eyes and a budge-proof finish that will last through sweat and tears.
Give cakey formulas a break with Armani Beauty Neo Nude Natural Glow Foundation, the very definition of “my skin but better,” thanks to a dewy formula that relies on hyaluronic acid and glycerin to keep complexions supple and hydrated. Coverage is buildable, concealing redness and discoloration with the first layer.
Champagne is both for celebratory popping and deep conditioning your hair, as evidenced by the champagne extract in Cuvee Beauty’s Premiere Treatment Masque. Along with a slew of other fancy five-star ingredients, like ceramides, resveratrol, truffle extracts, platinum extracts, and pea proteins, this creamy treatment can be used as a pre-conditioner or post-shampoo rinse-off that promotes shine and strength.
The giftable Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Care Kit contains a full-size Brow Wiz Brow Pencil and mini Brow Genius Brow Serum; the former makes it foolproof to add precise definition while the latter uses red clover extract, Korean red ginseng, and panthenol to encourage growth. If you over-plucked in 2007 and are still paying the price, consider this duo a must.
High shine and full-color payoff? Sign us up. Plus, once the glossy lacquer of Armani Beauty’s Ecstasy Mirror Lip Gloss wears off, it leaves behind a stunning stain that’ll last all night.
The holidays can be stressful, but the This Works Relax, Love, Sleep Candle Set makes it a little less hectic. In it, you’ll find three 1.2-ounce candles: the Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle, a blend of chamomile and lavender; the Love Sleep Candle, a blend of ylang-ylang and patchouli; and the Neroli & Sweet Orange Candle, which is a citrusy delight.
