Ah, December: By the time it rolls around, you’re kind of already over December. You’ve endured the holiday music that’s been playing since Halloween like a champ. You’ve knocked out your holiday shopping with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday deals. You’ve booked your holiday travel. Honestly, you deserve to gift yourself — and the 31 new beauty products for December 2019 launching this month are just what you wanted.
Of course, there’s no shortage of shiny, sparkly, and star-shaped goodies, so stock up on celebratory must-haves pre-New Year’s Eve. Black Opal’s brand new Sheer Metallics Trio will have your eyes, lips, and cheekbones covered, while the crystal-studded ORLY collection, a just-launched collaboration with nail artist Mazz Hanna, will light up your fingertips. Even your acne can get in on the action thanks to the latest from Starface: an array of multi-colored pimple patches that feel more like Euphoria-inspired face gems than spot treatments.
You’ll want to check out the latest CBD launches, too — all the better to properly de-stress once December’s actually over. The Populum Lavender + CBD Face Oil takes care of your skin, while the Kush Queen CBD Champagne Collection handles mind and body.
Ahead, 31 new beauty products — one for every day of December — that would make the perfect gift. For you.
