Christmas is just around the corner, and with it an array of exclusive festive beauty releases. Not only is now a great time to score major deals on limited-edition beauty products and streamline the gift shopping process, there’s also no harm in treating yourself to a little something as an early holiday present. Whether you’re shopping for a K-beauty enthusiast or a skincare aficionado, here are the best gifts for every beauty lover on your list.

32 favourites for under $110 is our definition of smart gifting. From the brand’s cult “Advanced Night Repair” to its signature“Double Wear Mascara” to its versatile “Pure Colour Envy Eyeshadow and Cheek Palettes”, it’s like taking a tour of the Estee Lauder store, all in one box.

Simplify anyone’s makeup routine by introducing them to this limited edition eye and lip palette from Dior. This palette includes one-and-done eyeshadows and lip colours that can be easily applied with just your fingers. Pro tip: you can even fill in your brows with the eyeshadows and apply the lip colours as blush. Talk about a gift that gives back.
This Sephora Wild Wishes gift set includes everything you need for hydrated and amazing-smelling skin, including a cotton flower shower gel, body lotion, body mist and scented soap. This is the gift for the person on your list who is in serious need of a tropical vacay.
One of the main reasons why you should pick up skincare sets like this one is the amount of money you can save. A full-size “SK-II Facial Treatment Essence” alone would typically cost you $289, but with this set, you’re getting not just the brand’s iconic essence, but also its Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, Gentle Cleanser and R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream. Now is the time to pounce!
Whether your loved one is fending off clogged pores or dry, lacklustre skin, this mask duo set from K-beauty brand Sulwhasoo has got him or her covered. The Clarifying Mask is made with solomon’s seal powder to draw out impurities and gently whisk away dead skin cells while the Overnight Vitalizing Mask contains jujube and pomegranate extracts to hydrate and nourish skin. Plus, the pouch it comes in is festive on its own, just throw on a bow and you’re good to go.
For the lipstick lover who always has one or more stashed in her makeup pouch, office desk drawer, and bathroom vanity: five tubes of pigment-rich formula from Tom Ford in an array of flattering reds, nudes and pinks. These lippies have a semi matte finish and don’t dry out lips thanks to hydrating murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil.
From one of the most revered skincare brands comes a collection of five masks to combat dryness, dullness and minimise appearance of visible pores. This mask set is great for those who love or are getting into multi-masking.
