Over the past two months, we’ve been goo-goo ga-ga over all of the holiday beauty releases from our go-to brands like Huda Beauty and Kylie Cosmetics. Now that we’ve nearly filled our vanities with beauty sets that we bought for ourselves, it is time to start thinking about others. To find out what the hottest beauty gifts are for the season, we asked 889 Perfect365 app users what is on their beauty wishlist this year, and we present you our top 10 beauty gifts for the season below.
#10 Tarte Park Ave. Princess Bronzer & Contour Palette $46
Whether you like it or not, bronzing and contouring are here to stay, just like skinny jeans. To help fulfill your inner bronzed goddess, our users picked this six-pan bronzing and contouring palette by cruelty-free brand Tarte.
Ranging from a soft contour to major chiseling deep tones, we can see why this versatile palette was on the list this year.
#9 Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette $27
If there’s one brand we are recently obsessed with, it is Huda Beauty. Founder of the brand, Huda Kattan, knows what’s up when it comes to curating a nine-pan palette that is made of dreams.
There are four beautifully created palettes to choose from: Warm Brown, Mauve, Smokey, and Electric. Not going to lie, we want them ALL. Each palette contains a large mirror for on-the-go applications.
#8 Huda Beauty Contour & Strobe Lip Set $25
Huda Beauty yet again wins points with our app users! On a personal level, we’ve tried these lip sets and are truly amazed at how beautiful they are. The tin lips container is a major conversation piece when you’re out in public, trust us!
You will love every piece of this kit, especially the lip toppers which add a super glam punch to the lip look. We definitely want to collect all five shades.
#7 Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette $65
We swear we are not being paid by Huda Beauty! They’re on our list again at #7 for the gorgeous eighteen-pan eyeshadow palette that will take you from daytime until evening with so many possible looks.
These highly pigmented shadows are well worth the price for the palette and would make an awesome gift for any makeup lover.
#6 Kat Von D Metal Crush Extreme Highlighter Palette $36
There’s always room for another highlighter. For your vegan and cruelty-free beauty fans, this is the highlighter of the season to get. With three super-shocking pigmented pans of metallic highlighters, you can’t beat the wow factor of this palette.
Featuring peach, opal, and a pinkish-lavender highlighter, which can be blended to make your own custom shades, you can count on these to be noticed when wearing.
#5 Too Faced White Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette $49
We’re halfway through the list and this is already our third eyeshadow palette that was voted for. This soft-toned 16-pan palette is infused with cocoa powder which makes application a divine experience! This makes the sixth chocolate bar palette for the brand (that we know about!), and with their high popularity, we can see why this made it on the list!
Don’t forget to pair this palette with their Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer, which looks and smells just as divine!
#4 Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter Palette $34
This limited edition, online only highlighter palette from Urban Decay is the perfect quad for all skin tones. Urban Decay isn’t particularly known for their highlighters, but I think this one finally put them on the map.
Each shade is buildable–from subtle glow to you-glow-girl! Since this is limited, we are not sure how long this will be available, but if you’re curious about it, this is the time to get your hands on one.
#3 Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette $54
With the success of Urban Decay’s Naked palette series, there’s no doubt that this one is also a winner for the books.
With amazing color payoff and highly dramatic color combos, this is high on our app user’s list for obvious reasons. This palette is on fire, baby!
#2 Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color $24
Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line is probably THE hottest brand of 2017 (sorry, Kylie and Kim!), and although it didn’t work for some of us, it is a holy grail for a lot of folks.
This gorgeous red shade of liquid lipstick in Uncensored is making huge waves on social media, and from what we’ve seen so far, it looks different on everyone, but GOOD on everyone. This 12-hour red is great for those who struggle with red lipstick getting all over the place, and who also struggle with finding the perfect red.
#1 Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette: On sale for $39
We have finally arrived at our numero uno beauty item on the list! Rihanna’s Fenty line is crazy good, as our Perfect365 app users will agree, and this palette is unique yet wearable.
The rainbow sheen on the palette itself is impressive, giving it an intergalactic feel. The buttery shadow colors on the inside range from a popping pink to a mossy green, with some pastels and neutrals in between. The palette is currently on sale at Sephora, and we’re not sure how long that will last, but the palette won’t since it is limited edition for the holidays.
We hope you enjoyed this list and will come back to see more of our Top 10 lists in the future! Happy holiday shopping!
