Cue the excitement, colour and glitter; the first drop of this year’s limited-edition holiday collection
has landed – and you won’t be disappointed. Think dialled-up skincare classics, and makeup that brings the
glamour for the Gatsby-style summer we all deserve. Treat yourself accordingly.
It’s the gift of all skincare gifts: Drunk Elephant’s famous Trunk is back in its fifth iteration. From Drunk
classics C-Firma™ Fresh Day
Serum and Virgin
Marula Luxury Facial Oil to newer icons Sweet Biome™ Fermented Sake
Spray and O-Bloos™ Rosi Drops, the hot pink carry-on (perfect for your first
post-lockdown trip) opens to reveal 15 of the brand’s conscious skincare formulas in a mix of full and
deluxe sample sizes. Our tip – don’t wait for December. Self-gift this one sooner rather than later,
because historically, it sells out quick.
For the friend/sibling/co-worker that sends TikToks until the wee hours of the morning [editor’s note:
that’s me!], this is the sweetest gift of the season. Why? It’s likely they will have already been eyeing
off Glow Recipe’s Watermelon
Dew Drops since beloved beauty TikTokkers @glamzilla and @mikaylanogueira sparked virality
earlier this year, and, well, the drops paired with the brand’s Watermelon Glow Pink Juice
Moisturizer make your skin as luminous and mesmerizing as a For You page.
Lightweight, totally non-greasy and scented with watermelon, this set is juicy summer skin in a box.
Year after year Hourglass delight us with a limited-edition face palette that tickles our
senses, and this year makes no exception. Meet the Ambient Lighting Universe Edit – a five-pan palette of four
limited-edition shades of Hourglass’ famous Ambient Lighting Powders (including blush and bronzer hues of
course), and one mega pan of Infinity Powder, a blend of Ambient Lighting and Strobe Powders that, when
dusted over the face, create a blurred, lit-from-within, soft-focus effect. Complete with beautifully
swirled, marble-esque packaging, this is a fool-proof gift for the makeup lover in your life (and the one
that MECCA HQ will rush to gift to themselves).
As we approach life out of lockdown with a fresh-start mentality, a new set of brushes might be just the
thing to reinvigorate your love for beauty. It’s why we’re putting MECCA MAX’s The Big Blend Eye & Complexion
Brush Set at the top of your gifting radar: with 10 vegan face and eye brushes (homed in the
cutest pink case-turned-brush-holder) it lets you retire your over-used brushes from 2013 while filling
any gaps in your collection. It’s also the perfect gift for someone with particular taste or a large
collection of products.
Big plans? NARS
too. The legendary beauty brand is celebrating the holidays with their largest eyeshadow palette
ever. It’s undeniably luxe, too: limited-edition matte, satin, shimmer and glitter shadows
fill 16 ultra-pigmented pans in rich jewel tones and wearable neutrals. At first glance, we’re eyeing off
the velvety greens and purples, but know that the palette’s glimmering champagne shade will become a fast
friend for simple, shimmery eyes. Take it from us: this palette is a hot-ticket item, so if you want it,
don’t let it cool off in your wishlist.
