Makeup brand Clio just introduced a limited edition holiday version of their Pro Dazzling Eye Palette that comes with 25 glitter and pearlescent shadows. You can use any of the brown, beige, or gold shades for a more classic look, or choose unique colors like purple or silver for your next holiday party.
Espoir’s Love Bomb Glitter Bomb Palette was created with input from the brand’s customers, who told the brand what they wanted in a new collection. The result is a heart-shaped jelly eyeshadow palette that features two festive shades, Champagne and Redpink.
Unique makeup brand Rarekind prepared its very first holiday collection called Ready to Crush. The collection includes five sparkly eyeshadows and even two glittery lipsticks to fulfill all of your holiday makeup needs.
Amuse created a beautiful Pink Snowball Holiday kit that can be seen on Jessica Jeong, a well-known K-Pop star, on the brand’s Instagram account. The collection of sparkle-infused products include highlighter, lip glosses, and eye gel glitter.

Great news for girls with dry lips like me, “chok chok lips,” AKA glossy lips, are back on trend for this holiday season. If you love the vivid color of a matte lip but worry about your lips drying out, these are the perfect solution for you. You can also boost the holiday mood with some glitter on your lips.
Popular for their matte and velvet lip products, 3CE is switching things up with the new Glaze Lip Tint. The product – which comes in seven bright shades – has a glass-like texture, and is hydrating and glossy without losing any color payoff. It’s formulated with avocado and jojoba oil to keep your lips plump and healthy.
Makeup brand The Face Shop also introduced a holiday limited edition Ink Hologram Tint. It comes in three seasonal colors that glide smoothly on your lips while preventing them from getting dry or irritated.
Espoir’s Love Bomb Lip Up is the perfect choice to create glossy, glitter lips. You can even add the Love Bomb jelly shadow to the center of your lips for an extra-festive look.
