    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

    @gigihadid / Via

    What does that entail exactly? Two concealers, two lip balms, four eyeshadows, blush, matte bronzer, highlighter, Volum' Express The Colossal Mascara, and a mirror.

    Get it from Ulta for $29.99. And shop the rest of her line, including the West Coast and East Coast collections on Ulta as well.

    2. Fenty's Beauty Galaxy Collection is the iridescent holiday collection of your dreams, no questions asked. We all know Rihanna delivers with her first collection drop, and now we can add a glittery eyeshadow palette, lip glosses, lipstick, and eyeliner to our expanding collection.,

    Promising review (for the Starlit Lipstick in "Supermoon"): "At first I didn't think any of the colors would really work for me since I'm more of a neutral girl than color girl, but I decided to try Supermoon and I am in love. First off, the formula is amazing. It glides on and literally feels like nothing more than chapstick. There are lots of sparkles, but no heaviness or grittiness. This color is perfect for a casual wear or for a more fun look. I actually want to try more colors." —lexid95

    Get the Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipsticks for $19 each (four colors) and Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette for $59.

    Other items in the Galaxy Collection are: Eclipse 2-In-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner ($20), Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter ($19), and Galaxy 2-Way Eyeshadow Brush ($24).

    3. Drunk Elephant Volume 2: Come C About Me lets you sample the magic of the daytime Drunk Elephant lineup (aka all the Vitamin C, B5, and UV protection you could possibly need), so you know what's good before you start splurging left and right.

    The set includes: Beste Jelly Cleanser, B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel, C-Firma Day Serum, and Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30.

    Promising review: "The packaging is beautiful and would make a great gift for any skincare lover (or yourself). I have oily, acne-prone skin and have noticed a significant improvement in my skin's clarity and texture since beginning to use the DE line. The serum helps my acne scars lighten and the B-Hydra makes me feel moisturized without being too heavy. The cleanser feels really gentle and isn't drying and the sunscreen doesn't make me break out or feel greasy. I'm so glad they released a set! It's a better deal than buying the full-sized products individually." —Twitchums

    Get it from Sephora for $88.

    Check out Volume 1: Hot Date and Volume 3: Let's Dew It as well!

    4. Urban Decay's Heavy Metal Holiday Collection amps up your metallic makeup game for showstopping looks all damn day, including an eyeshadow palette with 20 new and exclusive shades. Major.

An everyday lip, trendy neutral lip, deep vampy lip, classic red lip, and bright, out-there color lip! I will use every color in this set and I don't mind the size being smaller, as I don't often get to finish a whole lipstick. #makeupaddictproblems" —inatay02

    Get everything from Sephora: Little Vices Lipstick Kit for $25, Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette for $55, and Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners for $20 each (13 shades).

    9. Fresh Beauty Zodiac Soaps are totally made for people who CAN'T resist buying anything related to their astrological signs — you know who you are. They're vegetable-based soaps that lather super well and are wrapped in gorgeous artisanal paper.

    Promising review: "I'm a sucker for anything with my zodiac sign (Virgo). The packaging is gorgeous! Definitely gift-worthy with the beautiful paper and some sort of crystal on top. The size of the soap bar is also impressive: looks like it could last a month. The soap itself is also great — it makes a rich lather (that lasts for your entire body) and leaves your skin clean but not dried out. I have sensitive skin and this soap didn't irritate my skin at all. I've been a devoted shower gel and mesh puff user for years so I was hesitant to go back to a bar soap product, but I'm glad I tried this one." —LovePoems

    Get them from Sephora or Fresh Beauty for $15 each.

    10. Disney x Kiehl's Collection For A Cause is not only an adorable must-have for any Mickey Mouse lover, but buying the set also helps secure 350 meals for Feeding America.

    @toofaced / Via

    Promising review: "I really love this. I got the holographic color, 'Glitter Ghost.' I applied it on top of Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner and it looked awesome! It’s lasted all night and taking it off was no issue at all. I think I’ll get the smoldering gold next!" —amybluefish

    Get them from Sephora for $20 each (eight colors).

    13. NYX Make Up In Your Elements Palettes have a rather introspective concept — do you choose the element you personally identify with ~or~ the colors that are most comforting or exciting to you?

    Am I overthinking it? Maybe. But anyways, if you need a little help deciding, here's a quiz for ya. Metal and Wind aren't included, so if those are calling your name, go for it. Follow your heart.

    Get the Earth (pictured), Metal, and Fire palettes from Asos for $40 each. The Water, Wind, and Air palettes are available at Ulta.

    Promising review: "Sephora Favorites are awesome but lately I'd been seeing boxes with the same stuff over and over again — until this one. I hadn't tried any of these products so I was really happy to pick this up, and the price is great! This set would be great to give as a gift too." —Amber7777

    Get it from Sephora for $22.

    Promising review: "Surprisingly the most useful box I've ever received from Birchbox. The beauty organizer is so clutch and helped me reorganize for some much-needed 'fall cleaning.' The blush gives the perfect pop of color to my cheeks. I'm obsessed with the MAC lipstick too!" —Righternes

    Get it from Birchbox for $49.

    19. Anastasia's Blush Kit allows you to choose the intensity of your flush with four pigmented, buildable options — because sometimes you want a quick grandma-pinched-my-cheeks deal and other times you want a more noticeable pink glow.

    Promising review: "I am usually not one to be enticed by holiday editions but I had to have this. The size/shade range is impressive. I am very fair so all the shades from the 'Radiant' palette show well on my skin and are just different enough to make me feel like it's worth it. Price point is phenomenal for what you get. I won't need to buy another blush for a looong time! Pigmented and blendable as usual with ABH." —sophiantonia

    Get it from Sephora for $30 (two four-shade combinations, Radian and Gradient).

    20. IGK Preparty Hair Strobing Glitter Spray helps you achieve your lifelong dream of having actual mermaid hair — it diffuses light for a soft, shimmery, and buildable glow on your strands.

    @igkhair / Via

    Promising review: "When I heard the words 'glitter hairspray,' I was apprehensive. However, this product is lovely — not only is the glitter super fine, but it doesn't feel like hairspray at all (no crunchiness, buildup, or texture). You can build it up for a light glossy effect or layer for more impact. I had no idea this was limited-edition — IGK, I suggest you reconsider that. It made me feel like a fairy while wearing it." —blueviolet21

    Get it from Sephora for $16.

    21. The Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Eyeshadow Palette is worth the hype, and not just for the gorgeous stained window design, but for the beautiful marriage of classic (Saint) and adventurous shades (Sinner) *and* two new special effect glimmer shades perched up at the top, (Absolution and Rapture).

    @sephora / Via

    Promising review: "If you snooze on this, you will regret it. This palette is an absolute masterpiece! The picture on the website does not do it justice; these colors are so RICH and pigmented. They glide on so easily and blend so well! I absolutely love the "Vestment" shade and had fun making a dragon eye look with it! Also, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous! KVD truly achieved her goal of recreating cathedral stained glass windows." —oldbessy

    Get it from Sephora for $62.

    The other products featured in the photo are the limited-edition Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipsticks and Lip Liner Trio.

    22. Manic Panic's Amethyst Ashes High Voltage Classic Cream Formula commemorates the brand's 40th anniversary with a ~special~ shade picked from thousands of entries and suggestions for the occasion.

    Pretty purple pixie perfection, my favorite tongue twister.

    Get it from Manic Panic for $13.99.

    There's also Electric Amethyst if you want something a lil' bolder.

    23. The Becca Après Ski Glow Face Palette deposits a lovely all-over "oh-I-just-got-back-from-the-ski-slopes" glow — because no one needs to know you've really spent the whole day on the couch.

    @beccacosmetics / Via,

    Promising review: "The most GORGEOUS colors I have ever seen in one face palette. The opal highlight is a classic that gives off an incredible pop even in dull lighting (with flash, it's more stunning). I am obsessed with 'Icicle' for a more edgy, trendy look (also stunning with flash) and the winter berry blush warms up the cheeks as if you came in from the snow (coming from someone who lived in Connecticut!) and the bronzer, copper blush, and rose quartz highlight complete any look. Amazing." —ekh318

    Get it from Sephora for $54.

    There's also an accompanying Après Ski Glow Eye Lights Palette for $45.

    24. Invisibobble's Metallic Original Hair Ring Cracker has the cutest, most festive packaging ever, so how could you not buy them? Oh, and also because they're super gentle on your hair and don't snag your strands or leave dents/kinks.

    Read our full review on Invisibobbles here!

    Get a set of nine from Asos for $19.

    25. BareMinerals Collector's Edition Deluxe Original Foundation gussies up the brand's star product for the holidays with snazzy, texturized gold packaging so you can keep your skin looking pristine and like ~actual skin~ (read: not cakey) all season long.

    Promising review (for original packaging): "I started using BareMinerals foundation about eight years ago and I've tried to use other foundations in between, but I've always come back to BareMinerals. What I love about this foundation is that on a hot day, this foundation doesn't 'melt' or get oily. If you can find your right shade, you will love it too. There are other brands who try to copy BareMinerals but somehow they just come up short...they doesn't cover your face as well or the texture is just off. Go with the real thing; it'll be worth it." —Mindy73

    Get it from Sephora or BareMinerals for $44 (six shades).

    There's also a collector's edition for the Mineral Veil Finishing Powder for $38. And shop the rest of their holiday collection here!

    26. The Sigma Beauty Creme De Couture Pressed Color Palette arms you with an entire rainbow of extra creamy mattes for bold unicorn-themed lewks that will make your face really POP.

    Promising review: "It's not easy to come by a fun and colorful palette these days and Sigma nailed it with this one! Unique colors that go on smoothly and blend so nicely. I have been playing with this a whole lot and loved the looks I came up with." —Angi

    Get it from Urban Outfitters or Sigma Beauty for $39.
