The Best Holiday Collections From Aesop, MAC, and More
This is the time of year where top beauty brands wrap up their very best products in a single, specially-packaged bundle that makes our hearts beat just a little faster.
These holiday collections not only look beautiful, but they also come at price points that, when compared to purchasing them separately, are brilliant ways to grab your dream products at a friendlier price point. Not that you're buying these for yourself, of course—these are definitely all purchases for our loved ones. Keep scrolling for a peek at 8 of the best holiday collections your favourite beauty brands put together just for the season.
There is no better way to experience luxury than stepping out of the shower and slathering on Aesop's amazing collection of top-tier body care products. This year, Aesop put together six limited-edition holiday collections, including The Avid Explorer. This bundle includes the brand's signature Resurrection Hand Wash and Hand Balm, along with a body cleanser and body balm.
Diptyque Holiday Candle Trio ($140)
The search for the perfect candle is over—we found one, two, three of them. Diptyque has curated a collection of holiday candles that makes us want to deck the halls. This collection's three scents are Sparkling Incense, Delicious Spices (with notes of gingerbread!), and The Festive Fir Tree.
Herbivore Botanicals X UO Pink Clay Set ($60)
A rose-themed holiday collection is not something we're about to argue with. It's actually kind of brilliant—who doesn't want to open up a box filled with luxurious pink goodies inside? That's exactly what Herbivore has done in its collaboration with Urban Outfitters. This beauty collection includes a Pink Clay Bar Soap, Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask, and Rose Hibiscus Face Mist. Everything is—dare we say it—coming up roses in this gift set.
Christian Louboutin Holiday Lip Coffret ($365)
Yes, this is a lip kit and, yes, this is perhaps the most ingenious packaging we've seen in a holiday beauty collection yet. You know that stunning shade of red splashed on the underside of Louboutin shoes? This collection uses that very hue for the lipsticks included here. The classic Rouge Louboutin Lip Colour is collected here in three finishes: Silky Satin, Velvet Matte, and Sheer Voile.
Dior Limited Edition Deluxe All-in-One Palette ($125)
Dior's limited-edition holiday palette is about to become our new go-to. It's filled with a range of shades that have never made it easier to take a look from day to night. This holiday kit includes a face powder, blush, six eye shadows, and two lip glosses, along with three brushes for on-the-go application.
Eve Lom The Perfecting Ritual Set ($265)
Eve Lom knows that beauty begins with the right skin products, and that's exactly what this holiday collection delivers. A kit that is centreed on revealing your skin's true radiance, it contains the brand's Brightening Serum, Mask, and Cream, along with a cleanser and full-size cloth. We can't think of a more versatile collection to give as a gift this season.
