Scroll on for our top picks.
Pat McGrath Labs Holiday MatteTrance Lipstick, $38, sephora.com
It isn’t the holiday season until I pick out the one red lipstick I will wear for weeks on end. And this Pat McGrath one just feels so festive.
Nars Orgasm Infatuation Palette, $42, sephora.com
This year’s limited-edition collection comes at the perfect time because I just hit pan on my favorite Orgasm blush. But you know all about the legendary flush it gives, right? And that the Laguna bronzer gives the most gorgeous sun-kissed glow? My vanity—and my cheeks—are begging for this.
Givenchy Le Rouge, $40, sephora.com
The last thing I need in my life is another lipstick, especially another in the dark red color family. Still, tell me to walk away from this dark red shade and its pink-gold case, and I’ll hold a grudge against you forever.
Tatcha The Water Cream, $68, sephora.com
Moisturizer has historically been one of the skin care items I’m most reluctant to splurge on. Drugstore stuff works just fine, and I’d rather shell out for expensive serums that smell a little like sulphur. But when I tried Tatcha Water Cream, I realized in less than a week that I had to revise the usual budget. I like to use it at night and pile on a bit more than I think I need. The stuff goes on like a smoothie. Pores just drink it up.
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, $90, sephora.com
I adore Drunk Elephant, but the cost of it is crushing. The chance to get the glycolic night serum at a discount (any discount) is one I won’t pass up. Of all the DE products, the night serum is my favorite—my skin glows from it the next morning.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner, $22, sephora.com
It’s clear that pouty lips are having a moment. I don’t have the funds or the guts to get lip fillers, so I’m ready to commit to Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat, which I’ve had my eye on for nearly two years. Every cool girl in the game uses this liner to define their lips, and I’ve only heard rave reviews about the color, staying power, and most important, the ability to make your lips look fuller.
Dior Hydra Life Balancing Hydration 2 in 1 Sorbet Water, $42, sephora.com
I’m obsessed with this toner. It’s light, refreshing, and leaves my skin feeling unbelievably soft. I go through it faster in winter because the heat is on and dries out my skin, so I’ll be adding an extra to my top shelf.
