Christmas 2019: Best lipsticks to gift every beauty-phile on your list

No clue what to buy for the most ardent of beauty lovers on your gifting list? Fret not—we’ve got you covered, whether it’s a festive fragrance to get them in the mood for Christmas or the most coveted advent calendars to count down to the 25th with bated breaths.

But if you’re on the hunt for a foolproof gift that any self-proclaimed makeup addict won’t be able to resist, try lipsticks. From sets of pint-sized lipsticks (perfect for every occasion) to limited-edition holiday shades in stunning designs, this list of lipsticks will make your shopping expedition a breeze:

Shiseido ModernMatte Powder Lipstick Holiday Mini Lip Bouquet

Know someone who’s an absolute fan of Shiseido’s ModernMatte Powder Lipsticks? Gift her the Beauty Blossoms Holiday Collection, featuring the Holiday Mini Lip Bouquet housed in a pretty collectable box. Psst: two new lip shades are available in this coffret, including Elemental Rose (nude mauve) and Red Force (crimson).

Priced at RM190 (set of 5)

Nars Disco Dust Lipstick

Glitter is a surefire way to go when it comes to a high-impact #lewk, and Nars’ limited-edition Disco Dust Lipsticks are a must-have for any dancefloor diva to work her moves. Available in six shimmery shades, the lipsticks come in exclusive Studio 54 cases-an utterly chic gift for girly girls who love a sparkle or two.

Chanel Exclusive Creation Rouge Allure and Rouge Coco Gloss

Chanel’s iconic Rouge Allure gets reimagined this holiday season with a graphic, gold-edged packaging for each lipstick. Six shades are available for a picture-perfect visage, ranging from rosebud pink to dark cherry burgundy. The icing on the cake? Two shades of Rouge Coco Gloss (in light brick red and brownish red) for a layer of mirror-like shine over the lips.

Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Lunaison Lipstick, 25 Goldie Red

Brace your wallets—Gucci Beauty is now available in Malaysia and it’s about to blow. While the existing three lipstick collections are worth a closer look at the store in Suria KLCC, the new Rouge à Lèvres Lunaison is an absolute must-have for its intricate Art Deco-inspired packaging and iridescent glitter-dusted finish. Our favourite: 25 Goldie Red that smells as good as it looks on the lips.

Priced at RM167 each

M.A.C Cosmetics Kiss of Stars Lipstick

Opulence gets a glitzed-out makeover with M.A.C Cosmetics’ Kiss Of Stars Lipstick-glitter-coated, shimmer-laden lippies that come in six shades to flaunt a pout effortlessly. Some of the standout limited-edition lip colours include Destined For Stardom, a vivid blue-silver with pink-purple pearls, Starstruck, a bright pink-purple fuchsia and Gold Star!, a peachy nude with pearl.

Priced at RM105 each

Fresh Blushing Lip Beauties

We stan for any lip care that can give lips long-lasting moisture and UV protection, and Fresh’s trio of lip treatments does all of that and more. Get the best bang for your buck with Fresh’s Blushing Lip Beauties, a set of Tinted Lip Treatments SPF15 in three different shades.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Dazzling Gloss Lip Lacquer

Our favourite kind of lip gloss gives a high-impact finish, doesn’t leave strands of hair sticking to the lips, and has plumping properties—pretty much Marc Jacobs Beauty’s holiday collection lippies. The high-performance formula offers a lasting brilliance with serious shine. Shop from four dazzling shades (Editor’s pick: Atomic, a warm-toned medium-dark copper with a hint of sparkle.)

Fenty Beauty Glossy Posse – Mini Gloss Bomb Collection

What’s better than one of Fenty Beauty’s Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizers? A whopping five in the cutest, mini sizes, of course. Expect the bestselling shade, Fu$y, alongside four new shades in this giftable collectors’ set, made for the gloss lover and makeup junkie on your list.

Priced at RM210 (set of 5)

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited – Pokémon limited edition

Shu Uemura’s holiday collections never fail to impress (last year’s Maison Kitsuné was one of our all-time favourite), and this year, they’re tugging at our heartstrings with the help of the cutest character-Pikachu. The Rouge Unlimited lipsticks now come in Pikachu-inspired packaging in eight shades across four different textures. Whether it’s ultra-matte or creamy satin, there’s something for every beauty lover in this lineup.
