Every element of a holiday gift exchange is charged with wonder — from the anticipation of guessing what’s concealed by glossy paper and swirling ribbon to the thrill of finally unboxing it all. Then, you reveal a treasure that’s even more beautiful than the wrapping. It’s a classic ritual that still manages to feel new each time.
This year, we’ve partnered with Sephora and done the hard part for you, curating a list of beauty gifts you’ll be eager to give, get, and maybe even keep for yourself. There are some of the latest “it” makeup palettes almost too lovely to use (almost). There’s a lip set with enough shades to change your tone every day of the week.
