The best limited-edition makeup collections have been unveiled for the holidays.

Whether you’re a collector of limited-edition makeup series – the holiday collections are always the best – or want to gift them to someone who loves makeup, the Holiday 2020 pieces this year don’t disappoint.

From beautiful, limited-run designs to gift sets that will delight its recipient, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best makeup collections this holiday season to covet.

Gucci Beauty Limited Edition Rouge À Lèvres Lunaison

Gucci Beauty’s lipsticks are always a work of art, and the Limited Edition Rouge À Lèvres Lunaison pieces this year are worth collecting (and using, if your heart so desires). Available in three new glittery shades – 302 Agatha Orange, 402 Vantine Fuchsia, and 511 Madge Red Rouge – the colours are vibrant and glide onto lips effortlessly, leaving an iridescent satiny finish.

The bullet itself is a thing of beauty, coated with sparkly pearls that shimmer in the light. The iconic Art Deco-inspired case is dressed in a festive metallic purple, making for a good addition to your dressing table.

The Gucci Beauty Limited Edition Rouge À Lèvres Lunaison is priced at RM159 each and is available in Gucci Beauty Suria KLCC and Gucci Beauty counter in Sogo Southkey Mall.

Fenty Beauty Holo’daze Collection

For the holidays, Fenty Beauty has released a series of limited-edition pieces and mini coffrets, aptly named the Holo’daze Collection. When we say it’s limited-edition, we mean it. First, there’s the Full Snap Shadow and Mini Mascara Set (RM130) which features a full-sized Snap Shadow in a completely new colour palette featuring matte and shimmery shades of purple duochrome, gold, metallic red, and more. The set comes with a mini Full Frontal Mascara to finish off your eye makeup look.

Next, there’s the Fenty Glow Trio (RM190) featuring mini-sized versions of the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush and Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil in a universally nude shade, Fenty Glow.

Moving on to the lips, part of the Holo’daze Collection includes new shades of Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb and Stunna Lip Paint available in respective sets. The Glossy Posse: Holo’daze Edition (RM160) has four brand new shades: Cake Shake (shimmering bronze), Baby Brut (shimmering champagne), Taffy Tea$e (shimmering coral), and Ruby Milk (shimmering fuchsia). Meanwhile, the Two Lil Stunnas (RM110) comes in two brand new shades too: Unmatched (deep cool red) and Underrated (deep berry).

You may recognise Barbie Ferreira from her appearance on the cult favourite, award-winning series Euphoria. Much like the makeup looks from the series that inspired the internet, her collaboration with Becca also features shimmery shades in the form of the Prismatica Face Palette, just in time for the holidays.

The face palette allows you to highlight, bronze, blush, and sculpt your eyes with the five shimmery shades available. Don’t be alarmed if they seem the purples and frosty white shades seem to contrast too much with the rest — each shade has been specially picked out to complement the rest seamlessly.

The Becca x Barbie Ferreira Prismatica Face Palette is priced at RM189 and available online and in-stores at Sephora.

Dior Beauty Golden Nights

Dior Beauty’s holiday collection is opulent every year, and 2020 isn’t any different despite the circumstances.
